Karmen Pedaru “The Mistress” by Hedi Slimane, Vogue China
Posted Aug 31, 2011
This is some serious Hard-Core Fall Fabulous, and exactly what I’ve been waiting for. Leave it to the likes of Haider Ackerman, YSL, and Chloe to bring us the new 70’s-Chic – done to “Glam-Goddess” perfection. In a sea of Biker-Cool & Rocker-Chic, these amazing fashion-forward designers have deconstructed the sophisticated Halston/YSL look of the “Decade of Decadence” (70’s), taking the best parts of the over-all style and infusing new shapes/silhouettes, giving the trend brand-new life.
Edgy pedal-pusher (hot trend in the 60’s) pants with knee snaps is so genius it almost hurts. Pairing them with button-down silks, faux-fur, and sky-high stilleto’s is a sure fire “Fashion-Do” for any cool event. This layout “The Mistress” shot by one of my favorite fashion-photogs – Hedi Slimane – for Vogue China, seduces us right into the Arms of Style.
