Steven Meisel Linda Evangelista
I am so, so impressed with the way W Magazine have been thinking outside of the box in regards to their content. In what is probably the most innovative use of a fashion spread I can recall from W, their November issue features nine ads scattered throughout the pages that are completely phony.

For example, in “Lavex-les bien” (above), Edward Enninful chose to style the iconic Linda Evangelista in a ‘classic’ shampoo ad. With each ‘ad’ lensed by Steven Meisel, the overwhelming cheese-factor of each photograph is pulled off beautifully and expertly.

Couture Spring 2011 Christian Dior

Christian Dior


Valentino – The departure from the recent to old school was unexpected but not as interesting as it could have been. The pizzazz wasn’t there, and neither was my beloved Valentino red (two pieces do not please a customer base).

Jean Paul Gaultier – Amazepants. JPG used throwback numbering cards like the RTW (ready to wear) I built my love for fashion on. Killer.

Elie Saab – Not one misstep. A collection that screams Megan Fox – in a good way.

Givenchy – Samurai meets Geisha. Hats are unwearable brilliance.

Chanel – Oi vey, Anja and Freja did not look like their beautiful selves. Was it the unadventurous and unflattering collection? Not sure – it wasn’t offensive, but it was disappointing.

Christian Dior – THIS IS COUTURE. The colour nuances alone…I mean…Dior never fails. Left typeless.

Alexis Mabille – A bit ready-to-wear for my taste, but I would not kick a single piece out of bed. Clean statement.

Armani Prive – On first glance, I hated it. Then I remembered this is haute couture, and realised this is exactly what future fashion has been asking for. Structure, fabric, and texture are all genius, but the leggings must go.
