NYFW Fall 2015 – The Blonds and Thom Browne

New York Fashion Week is full of predictability, subtle variations on the themes of pretty dresses and Americana via sportswear, but a few labels manage to cut through all of that uniformity with some stellar, out-of-this-world looks.   The Blonds have a reputation for over the top shows and this season was no disappointment – from the cartoon personalities in the front row like Amanda Lepore, the insane nail art that took over 900 hours to construct, and of course what they’re known for best, their gorgeously opulent corsets.  The yin to the yang of The Blonds is Thom Browne, dark and eccentric, this season was set around a funereal.  Black on black on black with mourning veils, coats and purses with whales on them, Thom Browne’s uniqueness is more subtle but no less fabulous.

Dita Von Teese Candids

Dita Von Teese looks like a moving vintage photograph pretty much every moment of her life, so finding candids of her where she looks like art is not difficult. This is one of my favorite pictures – Dita leaving dinner in London in April 2012. It’s made especially poignant and beautiful because her dachshund Eva had died that day, and she went out that night in all black, a veil and a little gold dachshund pin on her collar.
