We love Hitchcock, We love 60's, We love Louis Vuitton

Quite a big post but I’m suddenly inspired. The truth is it was thanks to Lone Scherfig’s film, An Education, which i completely loved. The cinematography was remarkable but what really fascinated me was the Art Direction; to be more specific, the clothes. The 1950’s-1960’s style was accurate but more important, incredibly fashionable. The story starts with Jenny (Carey Mulligan), a high school girl whose ultimate dream is to go to Oxford until she meets David (Peter Sarsgaard), a man older than her that suddenly shows her the beauty of the big life, concerts, restaurants, jazz, and finally, Paris. And in the way, Jenny has this amazing make over (I’m a fan of make overs, who isn’t?). She becomes this stylish girl à la mode, whose only wish is to live to the fullest and with the help of Rosamund Pike she pulls off theee most lovely outfits (the Paris outfit is my favorite).

After I finished watching the movie and daydreaming about me walking in Paris with THAT dress, and THOSE glasses and buying books, I had a dejá vu, the styling was very familiar. And suddenly I remembered…. It was the Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 Campaign.

Featuring Christy Turlington, Natalia Vodianova and Karen Elson, Steven Miesel did a terrific job shooting this Hitchcockian campaign. Even though I would have loved it to be more creative in matters of setting, I couldn’t help but think Miesel wanted the clothes to be the main element to construct the mood of the campaign as well as the reference to the 1960’s inspiration, and that was merely enough. It is certainly one of the loveliest and most romantic collections of Louis Vuitton. Viva la mode! Viva la vie!

Lady in Red

Eniko Mihalik by Camilla Akrans for Vogue Nippon Via

I completely love the work of photographer Camilla Akrans. Her photoshoot with Jacquelyn Jablonski was marvelous and this time she makes model Eniko Mihalik look incredibly sexy in a mood of high class society and red hot outfits. Styled by Sissy Vian, Eniko looks like a mixture between lovely housewife (make up and hair) and a mortal seductress (courtesy of the incredible work of Mrs. Vian!). If I ever were to go nuts and be an assassin or something lethal I would totally look like Eniko LOL.

Mr. Perra 2

Neon Delirium wearing a Te Amo Vintage Pearl Shirt

Me, wearing a sequined leopard print dress, black studded belt, spiked bracelet and beige gladiator wedges (can’t stop wearing them).

Armando, wearing a black outfit with his leather asymmetrical vest, and a pair of Dr. Martens

Fer, love the denim shorts with the stockings and army boots.

Mr. Perra is a set of parties in Mexico City for the fashion, the freak and the outstanding. They are located in Club Social Fray Bernardino, a place that feels adequate for the mixture of fashion and music. I went to Mr. Perra 2, and I loved it, lots of fashion people, hundreds of styles, electro funk music and visuals from Natural Born Killers (favorite movie!). This time the music was in charge of the amazing Zemmoa along with Rafa, one of the designers from Te Amo, and Martin Cuevas. I had the best time ever; here are some photographs of the party that I took. I am looking forward for the next Mr. Perra party, can’t hardly wait!

Elle Von Unwerth is my favorite photographer when it comes to portraying the femininity and sexiness of the woman. I’ll do a big post about her work later but I wanted to share with you this amazing picture of Mrs. Hemingway. Love the contrast!

High Fashion Mannequin

Interview has never disappointed me. It’s certainly one of my favorite fashion magazines and I’m a huge fan of the amazing editorials since August 2008 with Eva Mendez in the cover. This time the credit is for Craig McDean; he caught my attention since I saw the cover of Interview magazine with Kristen Stewart ( I loveeee this cover). He is not afraid of taking risks, experimenting with light, tonalities, and even the concept he is conceiving in the photograph. Is Megan Fox too dumb or too pretty to be considered a plastic beauty? Maybe, but McDean achieves answering this question in a satirical way, mocking our standards of beauty with delicacy. In my opinion, Megan Fox looks incredibly high fashion with a bob, and Lanvin pieces among other brands. With the work of McDean, in this case we can say, mannequins look wickedly good.

Jane Fonda

Two of my favorite Resort 2011 Runways so far were Chanel and Dior. I was thrilled to see that there was some 60’s-70’s inspiration in the looks, the ankle length dresses, the mini dresses with high boots and the floral prints at Chanel, as well as the hair do’s, the make up, and the shades at Dior. At the same time I found the retro photography of Alex Pregers in DazedDigital, which reminded me of Hitchcokian heroines. Can’t say how much I enjoy this retro vibe since I love fashion icons such as Jane Fonda and Brigitte Bardot.
