Burlesque Movie Fashion
Michael Kaplan did Flashdance, Blade Runner and Fight Club. Now, he continues his streak as costume designer extraordinaire by controlling the clothing of the much-awaited film, Burlesque. He told the LA Times, “I wouldn’t be doing my job if I was thinking about the effect of the movie on fashion. I do what I think is right for the character. I want them to look like they exist in the world.” Take a look at Christina Aguilera, Cher and some of the key costume moments below. View Post

Miu Miu PFW Runway Anais Pouliot
It’s always nice to end on a neon note. Miuccia Prada wrapped up the four main worldwide Fashion Weeks at Miu Miu with a Seventies bow and a soundtrack that strangely featured dialogue from Flashdance, Cheryl Cole and the X Factor. With a timeless mix of “Oh my God” pieces and extreme elegance, there were individual quirks to each piece like stylised swan prints. Wait about two months and you’ll see these items on every magazine shelf you walk by. Thus ends Spring/Summer 2011. Excuse me while I throw my platforms at the wall and slip into a fashion coma.
