Lights of Spring
Darlings, our ongoing quest to give you shiny things to look at has taken a turn for the literal today. The great Mario Testino photographed an editorial for V Magazine showcasing the spring ’09 metallics trend. The pics themselves are gorgeous, the clothes range from fabulous to ugly, and the styling is kinda bleh. The bored model with the JBF hair and a cigarette just seems so…nineties, y’know?
Balenciaga, Burberry Prorsum
Love that skirt; LOVELOVELOVE those shoes. Those pants are HIDEOUS and pulling them up to tit-level isn’t exactly an improvement.
Yes on the Versace; no on the Prada, although the latter does look better in the editorial than it did on the runway.
Both pieces look better in the editorial, but no matter how well it’s styled, we hate that Balmain dress, which was worn by Jennifer Connelly to her last film premier a couple months back.
