LV Fall RTW 2011

'We were thinking about obsession, fetishism and we thought about an old hotel, with its chambermaids and the affairs that go on there, the crimes and scandals" said Jacobs.

 Kate Moss, who returned to the runway after a three year break, was the perfect choice to close the fetish-themed show and had the crowd cheering as she theatrically blew out smoke.

Jacobs casted supermodels Naomi Campbell, Amber Valetta, Carolyn Murphy and Maria Carla to walk his runway.
Hostesses dressed in French maid's uniforms and brandishing feather dusters and platters with caviar canapes and shots of vodka ushered guests into a tent that recreated a dimly lit Paris hotel.
The show saw models emerging from a makeshift lift attended to by porters, while they strutted down the runway handcuffed to their handbags, in heels so high, the catwalk had to be reworked to accommodate the 13cm heels.
Hourglass shaped coats in tweed and slick patent leather were worn with thigh-high stockings - and nothing else. Black bustiers were layered over demure A-line skirts worn with shirts with round white collars. A black dress embroidered with sequins looked innocent enough until the model turned the corner, revealing her handcuff-bound wrists.

Emmanuelle Alt’s First Vogue Cover

 There was a long speculation about how Emmanuell Alt's Vogue Pris will look like..
Edgier? Tougher?

 Well, now we can see that neither of them were really true. It is sweeter  and softer. Her first Vogue cover features Gisele who is wearing a white Dolce & Gabbana dress. She almost has no accessories and wears almost no make-up. Which goes back to Emmanuell Alt's personal style who said not once that she never wears make-up.
So the question is whether new Vogue is lacking edge or naturally chic?
