If t-shirts were around when Marie Antoinette was Queen these are
obviously the kind of ones she would wear while eating cake ;) haha!
Vive La France by Wildfox Couture.. these are the fanciest t-shirts on the planet! Photographed by Emir Eralp, Styled by Emily Faulstich, Kimberley Gordon and
Meredith Leyerzaph, featuring models Jennifer Pugh, Naty Chanbanenko,
Daria Zhemkova and make up by Carlene K, Wildfox Couture's new campaign is “ The Untold Story of Marie Antoinette”.
The word breathtaking springs to mind, though for what
exactly I’m not even sure. The oriental gardens teeming with a vast
array of plant and animal life? The rich hues of makeup that turn Karlie Kloss' eyes and lips into exotic jewels, or perhaps the oriental-inspired hair
that’s been immaculately twisted into circular shapes and embellished
with lush flowers? Truth is that it is impossible to single out just one
element of this shoot by Alexi Lubomirski: the ‘breathtaking’ label is
what’s applied when all of those things and more come together into one
beautiful picture, like an artwork that draws your eye from place to
place as you grasp each detail in turn.
But while there’s much to admire for enjoyment’s sake, there’s also
much to take away. The opulent styling in this Vogue Germany editorial
is a perfect melding of 1920s fashion and oriental inspirations.
It seems proof that the former era’s fascination with the latter
culture is the bigger revival than the culture alone. If the early half
of the 20th century was engaged in creating luxurious interpretations of
all things exotic, then we’re now engaged in revisiting their
interpretations. As fashion trends go, it’s a dream within a dream as
hazy and alluring as the mists that weave their way through the Oriental
gardens Karlie inhabits.
Alexi Lubomirski captures Karlie Kloss in Ralph Lauren for the December issue of Vogue Deutsch. This is Kloss’ eighth international Vogue cover. But, despite her current popularity, Kloss is a long way from equalling theVogue cover archive of Kate Moss, who has more than 50 international Vogue
cover appearances under her belt! See Kate Moss' international Vogue covers here :)
Kloss, whose coming-of-age was
complete when she made her Victoria’s Secret catwalk debut last week,
has previously appeared on the covers of Vogue Italia,Vogue Korea,Vogue Turkey,Vogue Portugal and VogueChina -as well as the cover of TeenVogue
in the US. Although she has also graced countless editorials in the US
and UK, she is yet to secure her cover debut in either country.
Versace for H & M Collection is finally here! We’ve been teased with lots of leaked campaign images for this collection, but now the long wait is over as the full Versace for H & M collection is finally revealed! It went on sale in 300 stores worldwide and
online, but the website soon crashed due to the heavy demand. Here in Thessaloniki it was available only on the central H & M Store on Tsimiski Street. I was completely shocked on how people can go crazy about clothes just because they are being labelled 'Versace'! Yesterday was the first day the Collection hit the stores here in Greece and I can describe it with only one word: P-A-N-I-C! OMG it was the first time I saw a thing like that: people were waiting in long lines for 5 or 6 hours and some were even throwing a few elbows for coveted pieces haha that was CRAZY!
Anyway, the prices range from 19.95€ for a pair of earrings up to 249€ for Anna Dello Russo's studded leather dress.
The other dresses range from 129€ to 199€. Expensive for H & M, but cheap for
Versace, which is the whole point of these collabs, isn't it? There are
even some homeware items, like pillows and throw blankets.
Here are some of my favourite items!
The perfect little black dress with cut-out details and detailing on the waist - very Versace!
A printed scarf. It will add a little spice to any outfit! (25,95€)
Yellow silk dress. I love the colour! (179€)
Black leather sandals. Chic and classy! (99€)
Black silk dress (129€)
This pair of red earrings is so cute and girlie I think it would be one of the first items to be sold out! (19,95€)
And the matching ring! (19,95€)
The black studded leather jacket! Not another leather jacket - this one really rocks ;) (199€)
Studded leather dress (249€)
Hot pink handbag. Also available in black, but I really love the bubble-gum pink colour of this one! (99€)
Giambattista Valli is an Italian fashion designer from Rome, Italy. This amazing red dress is from his very first haute couture collection which took place in Paris in July 2011.
