‘Viva La Revolucion’ – Vogue Australia
‘Viva La Revolucion’ is a feast for the eyes of some of the most exquisite looks from the Spring / Summer 2011 collections.
Today I brought the March issue of Vogue Australia and instantly fell in love with the feature editorial – ‘Viva La Revolucion’. And that cover! This gorgeous cover is one of my favourite Vogue Australia covers of all time! I love the model; the pose; the use of colour; and how there are no words advertising the contents – just the bold image and ‘Vogue’ title. So strikingly beautiful!
Featuring Alina Baikova, the editorial was shot on location in Mexico by Nicole Bentley. With looks from Prada, Stella McCartney, Gucci, Giambattista Valli, Bally and Mulberry; ‘Viva La Revolucion’ is a celebration of intoxicating colour.

Gucci Spring / Summer 2011
Opening with an electric bolt of colour (in the form of an orange blazer, violet strapless top, gold belt and green trousers); Gucci’s S/S11 collection saw a return to high voltage glamour. The collection exuded a spirit reminiscent of Yves Saint Laurent.“I pushed the accelerator on the provocation“, said Frida Giannini of the collection.
Splitting the collection into three distinct segments, it featured jewel colour combinations, camel and black before finishing with bright tribal inspired cocktail dresses. Dresses were woven with leather while jewels and feathers added a spectacular dash of detailing. It was glamorous tribal energy at its best! Dark orange, gold, emerald and black made for an impressive ending statement to the collection.
