Break before Christmas

Dear followers, I want to leave you with these shoots taken by the last Vogue Italia's issue.
Some retro glama pics with Charlotte Benson, that reminds me to the 50s and glam of that years.



Karl Lagerfeld and his Mythology

Today in Moscow, the 2011 Pirelli Calender, was presented to the world's press. The event was held at the prestigious Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko theatre. "The Cal 2011" features the creative genius of Karl Lagerfeld, whose sense for art and aesthetics is renowned throughout the world.

Mythology is a calendar that reflects one of the deepest passion of Lagerfeld: the Greek and Roman mythology. It takes the viewer to the roots of classical civilisation and to the Old World. All the photos are in black and white: "actresses and models bring these new heroes to life and decipt a new concept of the beautiful", said Karl Lagerlfeld, who, within these calendar has offered up an idyllic, immortal representation of beauty.

Mythology has 21 protagonists: 15 female models (including Bianca Balti, Elisa Sednaoui, Freja Beha Erichsen and Isabeli Fontana), 5 male models (with the Lagerfeld's muse: Baptiste Giabiconi) plus the American actress Julianne Moore.


Julia Restoin-Roitfeld and her ABC to fashion

Beautiful, strong, independent and hard working. This is Julia Restoin Roitfeld.
She's the doughter of the french fashion woman for excellance: Carine Roitfeld, the editor in chief of Vogue France.

Her mother taught her that the attitude and the charms of a woman are way more important than the physical features. She started to pay attention to fashion at quite a late age. Despite this, she is considered a fashion icon and, even if we saw her at the best fashion shows, se doesn't consider herself as a fashion victim.

She define her style as quite classic and bourgeois with a feminine and sexy rock touch.
She loves Azzadine Alaia, Balmain and Chanel: the ABC to fashion.
