2014 Met Gala Fashion: Beyond Charles James, The Heritage!

When you say Charles James dresses, what’s the first thing that pops into your mind? I was little familiar with the grand designer’s work up until Anna Wintour announced the theme of the 2014 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala theme ‘ Charles James: Beyond Fashion’. As the D-day approached, I was looking more and more into the couturier’s archives, trying to get as much of his fashion as possible.

So the first thing I imagine when I think of a Charles James dress, is a glamorous ballgown with a dramatic sculptured, ample skirt, very pretentious occasions and Haute ladies (do tell me your sartorial vision of Charles James style in the comments, I can’t wait to read them all!)

10 Fashion Items Identified In Captain America, The Winter Soldier

It’s time for another Films Fashion episode! Much like many of you, we contributed to the box-office success of Captain America this weekend. An action-packed superheroes-packed movie inspired by the many Marvel characters. It’s the second movie about and around Captain America, this time introducing The Winter Soldier as well.

The good Cap is fighting with friends at his side (Fury, The Black Widow and The Falcon) and he gets to save the world. Again. But doing so, requires not only special training (didn’t you notice that all those who save the world are proficient in some kind of martial arts?) but also special costumes. Judianna Makovsky is the head of Costumes department for Captain America, The Winter Soldier.
