Le Smoking: Jessica Miller for Elle US July 2011 {Homage: YSL, Bianca Jagger, Balenciaga}

I am definitely in need of a new tuxedo jacket…

Hold.The.Phone.
Don’t like sequins — or Dolce & Gabbana, for that matter — but this is amazing.

This editorial immediately had me thinking of the progenitor and my favorite champion of “Le Smoking.”  I would be remiss if I didn’t include a few iconic images of Bianca Jagger working.it. and the most famous one by Helmut Newton of YSL’s design.

For her wedding, Bianca wore a white suit, custom made by Nutters of Savile Row.

Looking for a tuxedo jacket just like me?  Asos has some a few options here, here and here.  Shopbop has a few here, here, here and here.  Now, those are all great, but can we pause momentarily and meditate on the greatness of this Balenciaga amazingness?

Bianca would want me to have this.  I can feel it.
