Before October magazine issues start making their way out, let me show you a little charming piece of pictorial for Harper’s Bazaar September 2009: Arlenis Sosa and Chanel Iman sweet interpretation of All That Jazz.
Besides that beautiful 40s fashion and lady like styling and makeup, I love a story telling pictorial. Something that goes beyond the regular pouting and frowning and fashionably angry looks. Plus the black and white photos bring sexy back on track! (the story continues with more images right after the jump!)
Have I told you I started a slim-scarf-turned-head-piece campaign? I think I did. Still, here I go again! My continuous search for funny, bigger than life head pieces I can work in my every day dress girl routine just had a serious update with “Fashion… And All That Jazz”: flowers. Ginormous flowers side pinned! Just look at those girls jazzing them and you’ll feel inspired too (hopefully). Starting today, I think I’m officially on a giant flowers hunt. Where should I look first? (this may not be the best idea, however, I’ll begin my searches from furniture & decorations boutiques – I love a good DIY head-piece!)
Getting back to Chanel and Arlenis: they look like having loads of fun and Peter Lindbergh did a wonderful photo-job! The pictorial looks alive, very much our days, funny and fashionable! Doesn’t it? (photos via)
Ah, 40’s fashion is so elegant. Look at that light coat: it shall never go out of fashion. Timeless elegance. Beatiful and a joy to see those ladies smile…..I’ve missed that! :)
They look fabu and are mos def channeling a “Lady Day” look, with the elegance and the large flowers in the hair. I love this!
Kpriss have you seen the new layout in Vanity Fair with Zoe Saldana? She played Lt. Nyota Uhura in the new Star Trek revamp (she was stellar too). Apparently the layout for that is also in Black and white and has a real Harlem Renaissance feel to it.
Maybe you could post some of the photos from it? : )
What a charmingly elegant photo shoot. I wonder we can get back in the old and dress just like that. It’s gonna be so fab!
waouw!! I’m charmed I wished I lived those years,
yes it was difficult for african people,
I like the clothes, the pics are well done.
Hi sweetie café au lait! What a joy to see you again here! ;)
Yes, those years were very hard for black people…..The fashion was wonderful but I believe that was the only good thing we can say about those years in general.
Hopes to see you back here? Yes? :)
great to see the emergence of a strong beautiful model in Arlenis, in comparison to the bland beauty of the last few seasons.
