You know that I looooove fashion magazines. Although admittedly I have slowed down my hungry purchasing of them due to lack of storage space I still go a little bingey sometimes. I decided, on a 32 degree day, in sandals, to walk 5km along some busy streets. Then I thought it was a good idea to pick up like.. 8 fashion magazines, always big bi-annuals of course, to help me have a bit more of a challenge on the way back. The things we do for love and fashion.. :)
Here is one of my favourite shoots from these new acquisitions, and soon I will post more, I'm sure you will like them too!!
Cate Blanchett as shot by Willy Vanderperre in Another Magazine 25.
I love Cate, so excited that it's finally her time again to win an Oscar. I haven't seen Blue Jasmine, but that doesn't mean I don't love it's star!
Willy is one of my favourite photographers. He is Belgian, big up in my books. He has shot for Dior, Jil Sander (getting the Belgian connection ja?;) and just about every reputable magazine in fashion these days. He works closely with Olivier Rizzo, super Belgian stylist. This shoot is theatrical, dark, and a little macabre; pale faced Cate lies on the ground with flashes of flowers, is she buried, is she part of fashion's love of the dead/dying woman? Or is she a strong modern pantomime, or something else, take your pick!
Included are pieces by Dior, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Miu Miu and Prada. FAB!!
Come say hello in Elwood at the salon, it's 2014, can you believe it! xx
