Tyra Banks as Other Super Models

A few days ago, Tyra tweeted some professional pictures of herself portraying Cara Delevinge, Cindy Crawford and Kate Moss.

She described this venture on her Twitter feed as:

“I’ve put my own spin on #NYFW with a  tribute to some of the fiercest #SuperModels ever. Unretouched. Real. Raw.”

Mainly, these looks I believe were achieved with makeup, lots of it – its all the eyebrows – look closer!

As soon as these pictures hit the internet the trolls went on a ‘is this racist/not racist’ tangent, I believe we need to admire her bravery for attempting these. Respect for the fact that these people, fall into the same category as her – SUPER MODELS. I do not believe they were executed excellently but rather they sort of do the trick.  I am also not sure whether it was a good idea but its the thought that counts, right?

To recreate these looks has taken not only talent from a makeup artistry front but rather that from a photographic perspective, the lighting is overall these 3 images not done too badly… apart from the Kate Moss “The Grudge” look a like picture (but let’s be honest the source and inspiration of this picture was from Kate’s heroin chic phase anyway – so bravo Tyra & Co??).

The press release gives the feeling that these 3 images are part of a 15 image series… I’m very curious to see the others and I will be sure to share these with you.

Victoria Beckham Launches Capsule Collection

Hiya Poutlings! ❤

Victoria Beckham is to launch a capsule collection called Icon featuring the selected reworked designs from her archive collections starting from Spring/Summer 2009 season. The line of seven Beckham dresses coveted by fashionistas around the world will start at £1,000 or roughly R14,000.

Together with my personal edit of the spring/summer 2013 collections, I wanted to be able to offer an exclusive product on the site that was in keeping with the signature aesthetic that’s very special to me, I introduced Icon in response to requests for designs from as far back as my first collection from customers, and I wanted to find a way to offer them key dresses from the archive, but in newly-reworked colours and fabrics.. I hope these updated styles will become unique, limited edition pieces and am excited to revisit other archive designs as the Icon collection continues to grow.NEW ICON RANGE - VICTORIA

The dress that was unveiled as the broke is this navy and spearmint frock inspired by Victoria’s Spring/Summer collection. It will be interested to see what other dress will make it to the Icon collection… are you feeling this one? I don’t know if I like it or not. It may grow on me… maybe?

VICTORIA BECKHAM - NYFW

Meanwhile Victoria showed both her collection at NYFW. The main line textures and colour blocks while Victoria, Victoria Beckham collection is about layers and versatile pieces, which I think I prefer to the first Icon collection piece…

I’m really excited about this collection, it’s effortlessly cool and easy and we’ve developed a lot of textures, it looks like there’s a lot of layers. The idea is that you don’t have to think about it. It looks like two pieces – jumpers and skirts – but it’s just one piece and you can just zip yourself up and off you go.

Be sure to check out Vicky’s website for the new ecommerce website and new pieces of Icon collection.

NYFW : Marc Jacobs

Hiya Poutlings…

Welly, welly, well, the one and only Mr. Marc Jacobs has taken the world on a time machine with his vision for Spring 2013 in New York.

This type of fashion at New York Fashion week makes me feel glad to be alive. Some of the coats actually made my heart beat a bit faster.

As Marc is renowned for the being the master of making-something-cool-that-you-thoight-wasn’t-cool served up a whole lot of sixties, but managed to do it without leaving your eyes feeling like they’ve been drenched in retro.

Instead, Marc Jacobs has left you, or should I say, me, wanting to look like a sixities chick with panda eyes and a Vidal Sasoon hair cut. I actually want to go back there and live it.  I really love this collection. Except for the neck ruffs. I really don’t know what the deal is with these this season, Valentino had them in his collection too.

Not only did he hit the nail on the head with the clothing but he got the vibe of his runway show down with calling up the sixties cool feel of Betty Draper, Megan Draper, Holly Golightly, Twiggy, Lulu, Mary Quant, Brigitte Bardot and even Gidget.

Normally, I would cringe at the thought of prison effect stripes and clown ruffles, but when you stand back and appreciate the bravery to so bodly and prominetly incorporate such features, you realise you’re watching the work of one of the best show men of his generation.

The man himself wore an outfit that looks like it had stepped  out of “Stayin’ Alive”.
