One Brilliant Balmain Gold Dress & 6 Magazine Covers…
it is today’s Espresso Shot of News…
Just a few months ago, Miu Miu’s signature Fall dress with floral detailing, landed 3 Magazine covers. It created quite a stir, even being featured on both Elle UK and Vogue UK in the same month. Well it has happened again! This spectacular gold Balmain dress, from the Autumn / Winter 2010 collection, has made 6 magazine covers! No mean feat!
Worn down the runway by the gorgeous Anja Rubik, this Balmain dress is valued at £21,000. It has been worn by:
1 >> Natalia Vodianova for Harper’s Bazaar UK, Dec 10 issue
2 >> Abbey Lee Kershaw for Vogue Germany, Aug 10 issue
3 >> Anna Dello Russo for 10 Winter 2011
4 >> Cindy Crawford for Vogue India, Oct 10 issue
5 >> Claudia Schiffer for Zeit Magazine, the 40th Anniversary Issue
6 >> Toni Garrn for Vogue Spain, November 10 issue
Natalia Vodianova also chose to wear the full length version to the Woman of the Year awards hosted by Harper’s Bazaar UK.
Rumour also has it…
Anne Hathaway will wear this same dress for her cover of Elle UK’s December issue! Watch this space…
Balmain = Love!
It’s sparkly, metallic and has a deep plunging neckline – could there be a more perfect party frock for the coming Christmas season? Love it! xx
I heart Abbey Lee Kershaw
Abbey Lee Kershaw is my favourite model of the moment.
As one of the most coveted faces in fashion, 23year old Kershaw is currently featured in the following campaigns for Fall / Winter 2010: Chanel, Mulberry, Fendi, Ana Sui, Calvin Klein, Jaeger, Gap, H&M, as well as Alexander Wang’s Campaign Video! She particularly caught my eye after she closed the Chanel Spring 2010 couture show and opened the Chanel Fall/Winter10/11 show – Karl Lagerfeld does have magnificent taste!
Also hailing from Australia (like me), Kershaw was born in Melbourne and began her rise to fame after winning the 2004 Girlfriend Magazine Modelling Competition. Quite a humble beginning seeing as she is now ranked 5th on the Top 50 Female Models list by models.com. Kershaw is the face of Gucci’s ‘Flora’ fragrance. She has graced the cover of Australian Vogue three times, as well as Vogue Nippon (Japan) twice. She has also been on the cover of Korean, Russian and German Vogue; Numero magazine four times; and Dazed and Confused twice.
Currently living in New York, NY; Kershaw has her nose and nipple pierced. As of 2009 she had eight tattoos. She is also reportedly friends with fellow models; Karlie Kloss Daisy Lowe, Freja Beha Erichsen, Cat McNeil, Karmen Pedaru and Jonatan Frenk.
Vogue Australia November Feature below:
For the November issue of Vogue Australia, Abbey Lee Kershaw graces the cover and also transforms into a 1970’s disco diva in the fashion story ‘The Last Days of Disco’. Gorgeous silhouettes highlight the striking 70’s vibe. Pieces by Emilio Pucci, Gucci and Hermes capture the feeling to perfection…xx
