A White Story

Okay. I’m sort of divided on this spread from Vogue Italia.

On the one hand, I think it’s dreamy and eery and makes me want to study them all.

On the other, they make some of the models look so hideous (one of them looks like a freakin’ zombie, I swear – you’ll know it when you see it) that I am again bewildered why fashion without beauty is called fashion at all. For that matter, it seems to me that fashion that substitutes shock value for beauty is often just slapped with the term haute in front of fashion.

Look at them all, and leave a comment with YOUR opinion.

Oh, and I met the stylist for this little TV show you may or may not have heard about called Gossip Girl. Oh, and the Creative Director of Nine West. It was a good Saturday. Look for a post & video blog about it on Monday or Tuesday! Yeep!!

(There’s tons more photos after the jump)

Many thanks to Diciassette (17) for the scans!

  • I agree with you….ethereal yet zombie-ish. I think it is "artistic" in the way they juxtapose the white filmy clothing with the dark eerie makeup. Something like ballerina invaded by white goth?? strange.

  • They are kind of zombie like, but at the same time it's got a beauty in it that you don't always see, I guess. Or something like that… Monday is affecting my brain.

  • Meg

    Some of these shots are gorgeous and some are really bad. In one she looks like she's having a baby!

  • I rolled my eyes at the whole thing. It's fine to introduce a new kind of beauty, but make sure it's actually beautiful.

  • some make me think of todd sweeney =P

  • I think it's pretty pretty, though I agree a few are a tad zombified!
