Most have seen the editorial by Mert and Marcus, so here’s the film that goes along with the shoot. Sort of eerily beautiful, no?
Tears for Fall and some stunning models and young actresses are shown on the numerous covers of the latest edition of Katie Grand’s LOVE. How stunning is the darkness and emotion that Mariacarla is displaying? How about Lara’s vulnerability? Daphne and Kristen absolutely work it on their covers as well. Speaking of Kristen, I kid you not, I read a comparison of her hair as “iron curtains.” She will now be known as Kristen “Iron Curtains” McMenamy. Deal with it.
Love #6 Fall/Winter 11.12
Models/Actresses: Kristen McMenamy, Mariacarla Boscono, Lara Stone, Nyasha, Daphne G, Chloë Moretz, Hailee Steinfeld, Elle Fanning

While the night was devoted to the late, great McQueen, two lovely ladies caught my eye in Riccardo Tisci’s creations for Givenchy. I may be slightly biased and Givenchy Haute Couture can easily win any best dressed in my eyes, but I am shrieking at these stunning beauties. First up: Liv Tyler. Liv is wearing Spring 2011 haute couture and it is fabulous. Just to simply see the gown was exciting for me.
What truly had me on the floor was Mariacarla Boscono in Fall 2010 haute couture. It was my favorite gown when Natasha Poly wore it for the presentation and it is my favorite gown still when Mariacarla killed it on the red carpet here. The skeletal-ornamentation of crystals and marabou feathers still stun me.
It’s interesting, this whole line from Prada. From first glance I feel like I should despise the pieces and find it altogether atrocious, but I really am too enamored by Miuccia’s genius. The entire campaign makes the line. When I saw the video, and I found it rather interesting and hilarious that others felt the same way, it all sort of clicked for me. The humor and provocation that Miuccia continually puts into her work is enormous. Many of these pieces are truly fabulous as separates and we have been seeing them pop up everywhere in editorials. The big editorial pieces this season are Prada, Gucci, and that Marc Jacobs travesty.
I sometimes wonder how Miuccia gets away with so much season after season. I’m not saying that I want her to elaborate any further on this season, but it is all quite perplexing. In all but four weeks or so, we will see what new creations Prada can only come up with.

Let’s kick of everyone’s week with a breathtaking and dark masquerade, lensed by Mert & Marcus. The 90th Anniversary issue of Vogue Paris will be in my possession as soon as I can attain it in this college town. This is one of two editorials featuring cover model, Lara Stone, and she is joined by an elite cast of models. Carine handled the styling quite superbly; the skeleton, the Givenchy crown of thorns and the Treacy creations are such wondrous and what my dreams are made of. Magnificent.
Lara Stone, MariaCarla Boscono, Freja Beha, Dahpne G, Crystal Reyn and male models.

Lanvin’s campaign finally came out and I love the cast and the clothes, the makeup…a little too hard. The eyes in particular are a tad whorish, but the models are definitely working this campaign. We have Anja Rubik, Magdalena Frackowiak and Mariacarla Boscono posing up something fierce for Steven Meisel. Oh Alber, please tell me it is the last season for these tribal influenced pieces.
