Go Figure

She is everywhere.  After an amazing 2009, she is forcing the industry to rethink their aesthetic ideal.  I got to admit, she has spectacular breasts, something that is rarely seen on the high fashion circuit.  There is an obsession with the hanger body because it is the easiest to dress; however, there is some change (as little as it is) with that mentality.  Of course designers are still casting girlish figures but they are beginning to consider women too.  Women who don’t necessarily fit the sample size of 0, which quite frankly is ridiculous.  Women who are supposed to be 5’8 -6’0 should not be size 0.  In any case, she looks fit and amazing.  And perfectly healthy, which is the more important thing.   I’m afraid she doesn’t do much but stand there and look amazing, but with her nothing else really needs to be done.  This simplicity suits the restrained chic of the clothes.  Also, I really like that cut out swimsuit (although the tan lines would drive me nuts)

Basic Instinct

The world is undoubtedly fascinated by Kate Moss.  Always has and probably always will.  Whether is it examining every outfit she goes out in (and consequently mimicked all over the world) or reporting on her wild personal life, she has become an icon.  I’m actually really excited to buy Vogue UK April 2010 just because of this editorial.   This is one of the best editorials I’ve seen Kate Moss do in recent years.  I’ve seen her in plenty of ad campaigns and street shots, and she’s constantly landing covers, but her editorials have been…flat.  It’s as if she’s going through the motions and knows what looks good but doesn’t really feel it.  And this is one where I can finally connect with it.  The poses intrigue me and the lighting is superb; she is always great at finding the light.  There is a softness about her as well as refinement that the styling totally enhances.  I’m so used to her being fierce that that was what I expected from her.  And now she’s switched it up; something that is needed.  Because even fierceness can become boring if it is done time and time again.   I don’t know if it’s Photoshop or if she really did change her wild ways, but she looks really really good.  A lot younger than she has in years and brings me back to those iconic days.  Not to mention that Donna Karan skirt in the last shot is spectacular on her.

Eva Herzigova by Jannis Tsipoulanis

This goes to show that when you’ve got it, you’ve got it.  There’s just something really fascinating about the supermodels of the 90s.  They were an entire entity of their own in terms of celebrity and fashion.  Unlike the major anonymity of most of the models today, people knew who they were and their story.  It must have been fascinating to watch fashion unfold when the fashion world still was about fashion as opposed to celebrity fascination.  In any case, Eva is gorgeous.  Positively divine.  I mean, really?  There is a reason why she was chosen to play Venus at the 2006 Winter Olympic Games.

Glam and Sporty

Natasha Poly is seriously rocking some fierce face paint.  And colorful too!  The extended pigtail braids are inspired as well; not even remotely girlish or childish.  Of course it helps having those absolutely stunning cheek bones.  I also never thought that I’d see sneakers and mini cocktail dresses together.  Glam and sporty indeed.  It certainly makes for an interesting contrast and surprisingly works well together.
