Haute Couture 2011 for V Magazine

The final word: We love a good show and this editorial is drool-worthy for so many reasons- beautiful models in the finest of Europe’s threads. It doesn’t get better than haute couture: hand-crafted down to every seam, fold and beaded pearl, the meticulous accomplishment of an artistic vision take life in the one-of-a-kind masterpieces that are inherently so full of life.
The spread’s styling by Joanne Blades is superbly unified, as with the edgy hair by world-famous Luigi Murenu. We turn to fashion to take us places and this editorial has us emptying our pockets in search of more tokens. Looking forward to more from V Magazine’s Couture 2011 spread when the issue is released.
