Beautiful editorial! Thank you boys. I wish my hair was that perfect.


LOVE. LOVELOVELOVE. THAT is a fashion editorial - beautiful photography, impeccable styling, great modeling, artful set, fabulous clothes. It spoke.

Thanks for sharing. :)


Ummm... clearly the reference point is "Last Year at Marienbad." The hair, styling, poses and even the clothes seems directly taken from the film with hardly any attempt at translation.

Beautiful no doubt, but I can't help but still prefer Delphine Seyrig. :)


I can imagine some of these being blown up to enormous proportions and simply framed. Would make a magnificent addition to the right room.


Eh. Beautiful clothes, but the layout seems a little been there, done that for me.

Love that Moschino coat. I really like it better in the editorial with the top unbuttoned.


Gorgeous! Fendi and Moschino: To. Die.

Thank you, guys!


Love it! Reminds me of a modern twist on film noir.


Eye candy!

Breathtaking photographs. The sets are fantastic, allowing the graceful styling and magnificent fashion to really shine.

Wonderfully done on every front...


Very pretty! I never thought I would say this, but I like the "new" shoulder pads! I like how they are so pointy and stylized. I also like the structural turtlenecks.


Highly interesting very well done photo shoot, great eye candy.

I really don't like those pointy, bat-ear shoulders, even though they give some visual interest to the unrelenting sea of black and white of the clothes. Sigh.

Bat ears aside, a lot of this has the polish of Old Hollywood glamor. That's so lovely to see.


I am new to the fashionista world. Can someone explain the point of these editorials? I always thought that getting your gown on the pages of vogue would mean exposure, but with some of these and other photos that you posted from editorials, it is difficult to tell what the garment really looks like. If it weren't for the links to the runway version, I would have no idea how long, for example, a jacket is. Sometimes they only photograph from the shoulders up, how does that help exposure?

Is it supposed to be visual candy or is it supposed to give you information about the clothes featured?


I find it interesting that most of the outfits that used belts on the runway were shown sans-belts here.


Love it.

My only issue with this editorial is that Tyson Ballou has clothing on. (Okay, that's less of an issue and more of a desire...)


I think that Daphne is a descendant of Diana Mitford (a raging beauty of her day and also a bona fide fascist!). So Daphne is related to model Stella Tennant who is a descendant of Deborah Mitford (who became the Duchess of Devonshire). The Mitfords are a the most fascinating family and I wish that the BBC would make a series about them! Daphne and Stella could play Diana and Deborah.


Did she... kill her husband so she could be with the waiter? Or, no, because he's alive again at the end -- I'm so confused.

Sorry, I want to think about the clothes, but the story is distracting me.


John Richmond gown, Moschino and Fendi coats....gorgeous!! My faves.
I love this editorial. IMHO, everything is right about it.
The only thing I am not crazy about has nothing to do with the editorial styling, and everything to do with the exaggerated pointed shoulders. I don't mind a softly padded shoulder, but some of these designs would look so much better without the pointed shoulder junk.


That Moschino coat is GORGEOUS!
*sigh*


OK - I only started reading this blog during The Fashion Show - so I am a relative newbie to fashion. I am wondering what is up with all the shows featuring Queen Elizabeth style white face powder? Has this been a long running trend in fashion that I was, alas, unaware of? Because white face powder is a look I could pull off. kidding.

This spread is beautiful. Evocative. Vogue Italia seems to leave our Vogue in the dust. Wishing I read Italian.

But, honestly, someone who has followed fashion for a few years, tell me is this year going a little heavy on the white face? If so, why?

Also, thanks for this post - fascinating reading about her,


Sorry, but I'm a bit bitchy since I'm studying for my exam right now (not). OK here is the Wikipedia bio, "Daphne Suzannah Diana Joan Guinness is the daughter of Jonathan Guinness, 3rd Baron Moyne and his second wife Suzanne Lisney (d. 2005 of lung cancer), a French beauty."

Maybe the Kristen McMenamy shoot was a little too similar for me to like this editorial too much. I'm not asking for puppies at Xmas, but even her widow's peak of gray hair is gone. It left me cold. I still love Daphne and wish she was more prominent in the States.

-Frances Spencer


Just beautiful!! The only one I like better on the runway was the Chanel, but that might have been because of the hat.


The deceptively simple set let the rest of it stand out. Refreshing to see it all put on the line, instead of hedging bets with out of sync sets, hair, etc.


Dagney Taggert

I am so done with the current square-shoulder look that every designer is shoving down the runway. Can we please move past it? And take the origami folds too.


Nice clothes, even nicer evocation of milieu. Very pre-war at first glance, then you see that the clothes are not really right and the makeup is not right at all. I admire the set.

Oddly, the more I looked at it, the more disturbing I found it. Much more so than the Gareth Pugh.


Dear anonymous 5:48 -

If she's Jonathan Guinness' daughter, then she is Diana Mitford Mosley's granddaughter. (He's Diana's son by her first marriage.)

Stella Tennant is the granddaughter of Deborah, Dowager Duchess of Devonshire.

That makes Stella and Daphne second cousins.


What is with the washed out photography and colors recently? I know, from an intellectual standpoint, it gives contrast and highlights the clothes but still. Bleah.


to die.


Truly harkens back to an era when one would read a fashion magazine and get lost in a world of perfect people with perfect lives - that it was merely editorial perfection was unimportant. While I Iove it all for me the standouts were the coats, esp. Valentino and Moschino.


So Last Year at Marienbad!


Is it just me, or does the female model bear some resemblance (given the right angle, of course) to Holly of Make Me a Supermodel, season 1?

Just a thought though. Beautiful editorial!


Very Katherine Hepburn. I loved it. You guys have impeccable taste. Stopping here is always such a treat!


NO MORE WIRE HANGERS!!

Anyone else channel Joan Crawford with the makeup? OMG.


Yawn. Done and done. Generic, uninspired, dime-a-dozen...take your pic. It'd be nice if Vogue ran something different for once. Ooh, fur coats from Valentino are glamorous. Thanks for that, uh..."insight."


I love it. Most of the clothes are completely wearable, but fantastic too.

This girl has some serious skeletons in the closet though, doesn't she?

Is she related to Lulu Guinness too?


SS -

They are sisters-in-law. Lulu is married to the Hon. Valentine Guinness, Jonathan's son and Daphne's half-brother.


I don't know who Daphne is, but she reminds me of Claire Bloom and Posh Spice.


Gorgeous!!! She is FIERCE, isn't she?


Clean and beautiful!

eerily close to Delphine Seyrig on some pics, so much so that i am surprised that only 2 people refered to L'Année Derniére à Marienbad...
TLo, i think that maybe, just maybe, a minions crash course on "european cinematic references on fashion editorials" might be in order... :-p


Beautiful spread, gorgeous clothes...

but can you fellas please post any upcoming Aquilano e Rimondi shows..

i LOVE all his pieces that i see in editorials and i would love to see a whole show.

There is a series about them: "Love In A Cold Climate," based on the books by Nancy Mitford.

Just a little too 80's for me with the shellacky hair AND the pore-clogging make-up AND the neck-strangling giant shoulder pad jackets.

That first dress looked lovely on the runway, why did they have to ruin it by throwing that nasty feather thing over it?


I agree. This is all oh so obviously "Last Year at Marienbad". This was a beautiful interpretation but I agree with whomever said they prefer Delphine Seyrig.


*shudder*...I think I just had a fashiongasm. Now I need a cigarette and a nap. Totally and utterly gorgeous.

Love, love, love! And the boy toy is a lovely accessory
