Emmanuelle Alt‘s first cover as Editor in Chief of Vogue Paris is here! For the April issue, Gisele Bündchen was shot in St. Barth’s wearing a white Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2011 dress, and was shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. I love that the cover is Balmain-less, natural, and spared of accessories; it is such a departure from Alt’s ‘edgy’ reputation.
Pop 23 Spring/Summer 2011 called Samantha Gradoville (who is looking more and more like Natalia Vodianova by the day) over to Thailand for a Sean & Seng-lensed photoshoot which was appropriately titled “Elephant”. As a relatively new Bangkok expat and elephant adventurer, I am in major lust; I must remember to hire Tamara Rothstein for my next elephant ride wardrobe. View Post
Gucci owes a lot to designer Frida Giannini. It is strange and beautiful that the 1970s suiting could procure such a seamless Carmen Sandiego semblance. The well-dressed women of future Fall fashion are going to love the pussy bow ties and rich hues a la Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2011. I could try and sum it up as ‘Gangster Bohemia’, but the Faye Dunaway inspiration made it feel to enigmatic to be categorized. See the top five looks below! View Post
Marc by Marc Jacobs latched onto the ever-present Seventies trend from Spring/Summer 2011 and wrapped it in a bow. Down for the disco era? With combinations of materials like metallic copper and leather/leopard print and anise-brown velvet, you have the makings of a stunning retro wardrobe, presented down a high school gymnasium-type runway with coloured tape and battered birch-wood. A nod to Marc Jacobs high school era, presumably. Another superb digest for every occasion. See the top five looks below! View Post
Leighton Meester – now the girl who you would never wanted as your college roommate – turned up at the ever glorious Marc Jacobs show, sitting front row. The bed-headed beauty wore a pair of Christian Louboutin Salsbourg suede sandals with a seventies Spring/Summer 2011 Marc Jacobs dress, which gave the look a Woodstock edge.
