“God Save The Queen” is the last editorial we shot during the styling course and it turned into a photo exhibition which started today at Accademia del Lusso!
The theme was about queens as the title suggests, every possibly kind of queen and I chose The Evil Queen: my inspiration comes from a mix between The Evil Queen from ABC’s serie “Once Upon A Time” and The Queen of “Snow White and the Huntsman” movie. Thanks to the great dress and feathers corsage made by the designer Ivan Donev, I’ve been able to convey my idea and inspiration and I’ve to admit I’m really satisfied! I wanna also thank Giulia Boccafogli for the crown-hat and Cecilia Rosati for the cuff!
If you’re in Rome, stop by and take a look at the exhibtion! Accademia del Lusso’s address is: via Luigi di Savoia 2B!
“The Great Gatsby” finally came out worldwide! And Institute Magazine as many other fashion magazines honored the movie creating theme-based editorials.
The movie is an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Long Island-set novel, where Midwesterner Nick Carraway is lured into the lavish world of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby. Soon enough, however, Carraway will see through the cracks of Gatsby’s nouveau riche existence, where obsession, madness, and tragedy await.
Like with Moulin Rouge, Baz Luhrmann made it again! Thanks also to his wife, the costume designer Catherine Martin, who worked alongside Miuccia Prada and Brooks Brothers to create the Twenties-inspired costumes that the cast wear… and the result is simply excellent!
If you want to know more, watch Catherine Martin’s interview below:
Personally I’ve always been in love with Twenties and if I could choose an old period where to live that would be 1920s for sure so I can easily say the movie is my “little treasure”.
I do hope you all will take a chance to watch and enjoy it!
What a red carpet! It was my first thought when I saw pictures yesterday morning but being busy with a shooting I didn’t have time to write the post.
This time I decided to choose only a representative outfit for the best and one for the worst instead of my usual top three.
It can seem weird but my best and worst are both dressed in Givenchy, my compliments to Riccardo Tisci, I mean it’s not his fault if some people don’t look themselves at the mirror before going out… just saying!
No doubt Kim Kardashian (in Givenchy) was one of the worst things I’ve ever seen: it’s okay, you can be pregnant, you can be fat but you CAN’T wear a flower dress!
Appearently only Anna Wintour can without looking horrible… lucky Anna!
Others have been criticized like Sarah Jessica Parker in Giles dress and Philip Treacy headpiece which didn’t surprise me at all, we’ve seen much worse on Anna Dello Russo’s head…
Madonna is my n°1 and the absolute winner: yeah, the singer rocked different styles creating new trends over the years and even if she’s almost 55 she showed a punk soul in Givenchy outfit matched with studs, spikes and chains. Just perfect!
On my list I also have people who surprised me: Kristen Stewart in Stella McCartney, the bordeaux silk jumpsuit with lace embroideries fit her perfectly; Anne Hathaway in Valentino, apart the blonde hair she looked stunning and Stacy Keibler in a studded and sheer-sleeved Rachel Roy dress.
