Week Fifty Two

Fashion meets Art 2

Posted in Fashion by sarahbakerhansen on 17 April 2011

Too fun not to do again.

Top to bottom: Warhol + Dior, street style + Damien Hirst, street style + Lichtenstein detail, Anna Della Russo + YSL + Madame X (I like to imagine Madame X wearing those shoes underneath her gown), The Sartorialist + Picasso, Tom Ford + Stella Tenant + Lautrec.

Style Icon: Garance Dore

So I know she’s mostly known for taking street style photos of other people, but how cool is Garance Dore‘s personal style? I love her menswear inspired look that somehow still seems feminine. I love how she freely repeats pairs of pants, scarves, shoes, jackets and two statement handbags, one wine (Sofia Coppola for Louis Vuitton) and one black (Givenchy.) Clearly, her wardrobe is real. I love how sometimes she shots photographs wearing heels, capes and other items that don’t seem utilitarian but that can be made utilitarian with a bit of creativity. I love her muted color palette that’s still sexy and how she sometimes glams it up with a shot of red lipstick. It also doesn’t hurt that the Sartorialist is probably shooting most of these photos, but we’ll forgive her that much.
