I feel like a child weeks before Christmas (please don’t ask why my past few posts have been about Christmas when I am Jewish…). I have that anxious, excited feeling and I am so ready to tear open those presents. And in this case presents means H & M’s doors on November 20.
Yes, yes we know Alber Elbaz is a god to me, and Lanvin is Mount Olympus. I suppose that makes H & M my shopping mecca because the two are teaming up to create the most fabulous line, well, ever.
I wanted to save this post until some images of the clothes came out and today they were all over the internet.
First there was the video with Natasha Poly, with the clothes blurred out of course, but now we have an advertisement! A printed image of four models in seriously chic black clothes.
I am counting down the days until November 20. I am saving all my money and not shopping until then so that I can buy every single piece.
I think it is time I devote a post to Karlie Kloss. This is mainly because she is everywhere. Opening runway shows, doing advertisements, being featured in editorials. And she is only 17. And grew up in Missouri. No big deal. She is also 6 feet tall.
Am I envious? Jealous of this doll faced girl traversing the globe wearing the most beautiful clothes imaginable? Well yes, maybe a little bit.
But I have to hand it to her, she’s good at what she does, she has an interesting look to her, and she is such a chameleon. One day she will look like a carefree teenager, 16 years old at best, and then a few hours later with a little mascara and some blush she is a Dior vixen twice her age.
Let’s examine some of her best magazine work, both ads and editorials:
Sonia Rykiel for H & M
Oscar de la Renta
And the runway:
Jean Paul Gaultier
Dolce and Gabbana
