“I want to get away with you…and…find a world where words like that don’t exist.”
Harper’s Bazaar has decided to celebrate Martin Scorsese‘s latest film, Hugo, with a fashionable recast of some of his best movies and the most poignant scenes in them. The casting is impeccable, and the photography – courtesy of Jason Schmidt – is faultless.
First off? Kate Bosworth (in pearl-clutching Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci!) in “The Age of Innocence“.
Mark Badgley and James Mischka would have to try pretty hard to let me down, and it seems they are only getting better. The structural side of things (brocade, shantung, linen, etc) played against their typical use of chiffon and jersey, while the garments were punctuated with bright lemon hues down to pomegranate and marigold.
I hate to say it in the palava that Galliano has put himself in, but there were definite flairs of recent-day Dior Haute Couture (if it were ever on a tighter budget, of course). If you wanted a sense of the show itself, I reccomend the track “Add Ends” by When Saints Go Machine, from the Spring/Summer 2012 soundtrack. Like Candyland on some classy medication. View Post
The flawless “Let’s Dance” fashion story by Patrick Demarchelier has made it into this month’s Vogue India. The shoot – featuring girlcrush Arizona Muse – was previously published in the June edition of British Vogue. The high fashion pieces from the likes of Dior, Alexis Mabille Couture, Atelier Versace, Chanel, Giorgio Armani Prive, Valentino Haute Couture and Gaultier Couture come from the styling genius of Lucinda Chambers, with Val Garland on make-up and Sam McKnight on hair. The versatility here has a license to kill. View Post
In reflection, the Fall 2011 Couture
collections weren’t up to standard. While I adored Elie Saab
– as always – the rest of the shows seemed to be missing the usual magic
that couture fashion delivers.
A Top 10, however, will always show the best of the rest.
Музыка банта, which I think translates into “Music of the Bow“, is the latest and greatest from the June 2011 issue of Vogue Russia. We have two lesser knowns – model Georgina Stojiljkovic and photographer Giulia Noni – completely rocking the (sometimes overdone) mirror concept. I feel as though Georgina should never wear anything but Givenchy…well, what is now Dior, I suppose. Check it out below. View Post
