If you’re wondering who all will be wearing Tom Ford Spring 2011 on the red carpet for the Oscars, well it will come down to one name. Mr. Ford said that in attempt to step out of the entire “step and repeat” game, and give his clients the exclusivity they need, want, and deserve, after the nominees are named he will choose one woman, and one woman only. He will approach this woman and offer to dress her for the awards. Let the competition begin.
Marc Jacob’s Spring 2011 collection was flawless-modern, pragmatic, and wearable
–Andre Leon Talley
So this issue included small features on the CFDA Finalists and these would have to be my favorite two. As you all know Prabal Gurung(left)was no doubt one of my favorite shows of the Summer/Spring 2011 show season and it just so happens that I didn’t really pay attention to the menswear shows that happened during New York Fashion Week. Because of this Loden Dager(right) almost slipped through the cracks. Thankfully though, the brand did not and has in fact secured a place in my heart… now only if we can transfer that to my closet!
This editorial, shot by Patrick Demarchelier and styled by fashion editor Tonne Goodman, was my favorite of the issue. It was a tough decision, with Grace Coddington‘s two spreads putting up a good fight, but in the end, Sasha Pivovarova won out.
MARC JUST GAVE TWO MIDDLE FINGERS TO AMERICAN MINIMALISM!
As Andre Leon Talley so infamously put it in The September Issue,’ It’s been bleak street over here in America…My eyes are starving for beauty!’ and Marc, brought a FLOOD!
However I begin it, it always ends the same. It ends with me gushing about everything before rocking back and forth in a corner crying myself to sleep as I wonder how I can one day become one of the “cool kids”. The clothes speak for themselves…as do the hats… and the Grace Coddington inspired hair… and the exquisite floral pieces… I could go on. But I won’t… I’ll just let you feast on the goodie bags I’ve brought in.
It seems that Miss Karlie Kloss has no intentions on slacking up this year. In addition to snagging the Dior editorial(which we were waiting on because they didn’t do one last season), she has snagged jobs form H&M, Vogue Italia, and Hermes. For 2009 she was most definitely one to watch and it seems that she’s attempting to go for the same title again for 2010. My only question is, can models over-saturate the industries like products? Will design houses stop booking her because her face is already out there so much? We’ll see soon enough.
