“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“.
I am totally and completely blown away by this editorial. Mariacarla Boscono, Lea T, Saskia de Brauw and Chris Moore are setting hearts on fire in Dazed & Confused‘s October 2011 cover story. In “Ex Stasis” – lens by Matthew Stone and styled by Katy England – we are essentially being force-fed Givenchy in the most beautiful way imaginable. Riccardo Tisci is going to be a happy fellow.

Riccardo Tisci is still atop his unshakeable pedestal. Though I risk sounding like a Sarah Jessica Parker movie by saying so…I don’t know how he does it.
Givenchy for Spring/Summer 2012 was incredible. As the show opened, Natalia Vodianova stepped out in a nude, sleveless, dropped-lapel jacket that demonstrated a merging of rigid tailoring and fluid movement that would encapsulate his entire collection.
Throughout the presentation there was a waterworld theme hinted softly in the craftsmanship. With his unparalleled skills, Tisci managed to create 3-d wave effects through tiers of ruffles. Genius. The embellishment of the season was seen in icy silver-blue sequins placed on one of his wave-like lapelled jackets with matching pants. The theme wasn’t overplayed, yet it penetrated every seam. That is what made the collection. View Post
