DESPERADO

Madonna is wearing Givenchy for the Grammy Awards this year. It looks a little as if everyone at Givenchy was afraid to say NO to her ideas. It looks like they tried desperately to put 12 different looks in ONE outfit.

The details on this outfit are beautiful and its definitely couture but I think Madonna should stop trying too hard. She doesn´t need this anymore. Enough!

 

THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS

It is not just black it is an icon that survived over years.

Of course it always existed but in 1926 Coco Chanel published a picture of a short,  simple black dress in the american Vogue. It was calf-length, straight and decorated only by few diagonal lines.  It was simple and accessible for women of all social classes. Vogue said that the LBD would become…

…A SORT OF UNIFORM FOR ALL WOMEN OF TASTE.

Many women in the 1960s aspired to simple black dresses similar to that designed by Hubert de Givenchy and worn by actress Audrey Hepburn in the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
