Miranda Kerr + Jalouse Magazine
In the 1960’s, Twiggy was the epitome of “Mod” with micro-miniskirts and doe eyes with a dramatic cut crease. Well the Sixties are back and in full swing! Now let’s see how long I can go before making a cliche reference to any one of the Austin Powers films (fingers crossed). The Spring/Summer 2013 runways have seen quite a throwback to Twiggy’s era. The Marc Jacbos and Louis Vuitton (also designed by Jacobs) Spring 2013 Ready-to-Wear collections showed heavy 1960’s flare. Versace, though clearly more reminiscent of the 1970’s, added a little Sixties into the mix with micro-minis and tie-dye. Naturally, the trend is spilling into the fashion magazines and Miranda Kerr has taken a page from Twiggy’s book in her shoot for France’s Jalouse Magazine.
A model’s number one goal is to look glamorous, while making the clothing and accessories the main focus. Miranda did just that. I was drawn to every inch of this spread. I took in everything from the hair, the makeup, the posing, and naturally the garments. I want to be this girl. I want her clothes, I want to live the life she lives. Mission accomplished Miranda.
The instant I saw this shoot, I was speechless. The makeup was sultry and dramatic, but not over-powering. Miranda sported Twiggy’s signature cut crease, glossy cheeks and a pouty lip. She was dressed in what I can only call some of the most glamorous clothes I’ve ever seen. She was appropriately wearing several of France’s own Louis Vuitton garments (check out that checkered skirt!), along with other designers. And in keeping with the Sixties theme: micro-mini galore!
Unfortunately for me, I don’t live in France. So I can’t get my hands on a hard copy of this shoot. But it will be forever immortalized in this blog post. Groovy baby! (Mmm…so close).
