Pretty damn speechless, I must admit.  This editorial by Steven Meisel for the April 2015 issue of Vogue Italia completely caught me by surprise — it took me a moment to realize I wasn’t actually looking at something from decades ago!  Styled by Karl Templer and starring Karen Elson and Christopher Niquet, this glamorous silver-screen vision of fluid dance steps and gowns that appear to float on air is a treat indeed.

Mid-century Glamour

20/07/2012 § 2 Comments

In an editorial that reminds me a little of her role as Della Bea Robinson in Ray (2004), the gorgeous Kerry Washington turns up the Mid-century glamour for the July 2012 issue of Vogue Italia.  Really over the moon here for the makeup and hair — strong brow/smokey eye and a bouffant flip will get me every. time. — and the vintage Los Angeles feel.  This house is amazing, no?  Lovely.

Hey, Red! {Jessica Chastain for Vogue Italia April 2012}

Well, now.  I realize I haven’t posted about an editorial in almost three months.  Is it because my interest has been elsewhere?  Or perhaps because I just haven’t seen anything that has caught my eye?  In any event, I have actress Jessica Chastain and Vogue Italia to thank for reviving my love of the editorial with an amazing set of images that hearken back to classic Hollywood and were coincidentally shot in one of my very favorite places in Los Angeles: the Fred Harvey Restaurant in Union Station — an art deco masterpiece that has been closed since 1967.

You can see my photographs from my last visit here.

Please believe me when I say I know I will be married here — and I am not at all like that about weddings.  Now all that’s left is to pin down the groom.

Details, details.
