London Fashion Week S/S 2016 – Ashish and Philipp Plein

London Fashion Week is, for me, the most underwhelming of all the fashion weeks.  I know that there are some strong, big names that show collections, but because the bland sameness of Burberry and the like do little for me, there is very little that registers as new and exciting.   Two brands who I always can count on showing something wearable, daring and fun are Ashish and Philipp Plein.  Ashish is responsible for those rainbow sequined ripped jeans that were so popular last year as well as helping to make the creeper shoe popular again.  There is always a positivity to the creativeness at Ashish, and embracing diversity and uniqueness with a joyful openness.  This season was no different, blurring gender norms and literally covering the models in multicolored confetti, making the show feel like being at an awesome birthday party.  Philipp Plein is a weakness of mine – I know that it’s a little one note, but as a recovering goth, I respond to the punky couture-ness of it all.

Excellent news, style lovers, Rizzoli is publishing a book this month that charts the New York state native’s journey through all her iconic looks.  From gamine alt 90’s teen to streetwise vintage to bombshell pinup to couture queen, Chloe has explored and beautifully encapsulated so many different looks, giving each her own personal touch.  Blessed with a long frame, legs for days and an uniquely beautiful face, she’s transformed herself while never falling prey to trends.

With a Debbie Harry-influenced throw back hair style, gorgeous smoky eyes and in some of Saint Laurent’s punky pieces, Scarlett Johansson is looking like the whiskey voiced, thick lipped blonde bombshell we know and love so well.  Beautifully styled by Edward Enninful and photographed with the sexy and raw trademark of Mert & Marcus, Scarlett Johansson’s gaze pierces through these photographs and looks right at the viewer.

 

Angelina Jolie by Mario Testino throughout the years

Angelina Jolie is the cover girl of Vanity Fair’s December 2014 issue photographed by Mario Testino.   He’s taken beautiful pictures of her throughout the years, and I thought this was a great chance to look at them.

From his book “Let Me In” These pictures of her with Brad Pitt are from 2005, soon after her and Brad Pitt announced that they were together, and soon after they adopted Zahara.  These are some of my favorite pictures of her, so natural and intimate and happy.
