Vogue Italia September 2011

 

i know i’m reposting a lot of vogue italia lately, but i’m running across a lot of design influences that strike me as remarkably neovictorian lately. like this – apply the standard anti-couture-calculated-insanity filter, use accessible, everyday materials, and it becomes quite wearable.

Dita, perfume debut, vintage 40’s

this is Dita in a beautiful late 40’s Howard Greer gown.


 

she’s at a cocktail reception for the launch of her new parfum, Femme Totale – which nom i hope is, at least in part, a vicious mockery of that horrible 1970’s evangelical monstrosity, The Total Woman.

it just fits her as if it were made for her. just a beautiful picture. i can’t imagine Mr. Greer could possibly be more pleased.

she purchased it from our divine friends at Dorothea’s Closet fine vintage clothing, in beautiful downtown Des Moines! we’re so excited for them.

just a match made by the divine intervention of whatever powers be what control and dispense timeless beauty and feminine elegance.

check out the shop and find yourself something beautiful:

i absolutely love this. i don’t know exactly what i’d do with it other than wear it and love it – it’s definitely an art piece – but it’s just amazing.

miz bilenker makes modern, exquisitely beautiful hair jewelry.

 

i’ll never be able to afford any of it.

speaking of McQueen
