Malgosia Bela Keeps The 70’s Alive in Vogue Paris by Glen Luchford

Going full-on architectural, Malgosia Bela channels a 1970’s ‘Helmut Newton Girl’, in dangerously-chic graphic swimwear, with cut-outs so sharp you’ll slice yourself just thinking about it.  Glen Luchford brings the spirit of the crime-thriller “Série Noire” to life, in this stunningly layout for the May issue of Vogue Paris.  With legs for days, this story celebrates a time when a woman’s sexuality was seen through the lens of high-fashion. Forget boobs & bootie, this was about the long, lean lines of severe-style.  In pieces from Gucci, Roberto Cavalli, Yves Saint Laurent & more, we are reminded why that era will forever be considered ultra-modern & completely covet-worthy.  And with designs that have honored the perfection of the original work, but managed to give us cutting-edge versions with updated silhouettes, the connection is maintained.  Fashion history is only kept alive through the non-derivative work of modern artists.
