The editorials in the May issue of American Vogue are quite amazing, but was I loved best about the issue was their embrace of bold color statements, especially the rich shades of pinks and oranges. In one of them Steven Meisel shoots Amber Valletta as an old-school socialite with a slew of candy-colored coifs and in one of my favorite shots she sits in a turquoise-decorated room with jet-black hair and the perfect fuchsia lipstick that perfectly complements her dress. For the main editorial about the American woman (aka, the theme for this year Costume Institute exhibit/gala, David Sims shoots a rainbow coalition of IT-models in all the most important designers who have found a new home in popular looks from the past century. The best shot, by far, belongs to a STUNNING Raquel Zimmerman with super bright hair that almost exactly matches her sinuous gown.
But what it comes down to is simply, that I'm REALLY feeling these colors.
