Vanity Fair: March 2011

Like in 2008 this march cover of Vanity Fair presents set of hollywood stars, whcich belong to the best. The front panel are Oscar co-hosts Anne Hathaway, whose place  every girl would like to replace,  James Franco (himself a best-actor nominee), along with Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal- so good looking men…The two inside panels feature 11 more stars, from newcomer best-actor/actress nominees Jesse Eisenberg and Jennifer Lawrence to Noomi Rapace, whose stunning performance in the original, Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo propelled her from Stockholm to Hollywood. Joining them are Anthony Mackie, Olivia Wilde, Mila Kunis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Andrew Garfield, Rashida Jones, Garrett Hedlund, and Robert Duvall.

Martin Hrča

Hrca belongs to a group of Slovaks  for which I’m not ashamed. Martin is a young slovak fashion designer who is not so popular not even in Slovakia  make the fashion creations, in which were found also Lady Gaga. Since it is not even his name in Slovakia very popular, I hope its not potential exploits and will hear about him and the world fashion industry…

Herve Leger

Yesterday my sister call my attention to this ordinary extraordinary brand, which presently cover almost all red carpets in Hollywood. Under normal conditions it would simply coalesce with other brands ( and I would not write about it). However the founder Herve L. Leger brought something new to marketing. So it was fact, that stripes improve woman figure. Also, it does not matter whether woman has plump figure with case instead of behinds or look like sceleton. With “these” stripes she looks sexi. Of course, that Herve does not sell this dresses at a cheap coin, but he asks for one of them over 1000€.

When my sister recently mentioned this name, it meant nothing to me. But I must admit I probably belong to a minority group of people, because the founder have found out the  of one revolutionary ideas. So this idea is, that ‘the strips’ are designed to improve figure of women. Any woman looks just super and sexy. So the only one finding was enough to ‘win’ for fashion designer  Maw Azria.  Proof is the fact that today the red carpet are full of dresses bz Herve Leger. Continue reading

Croquis of fashion designers

Fsahion isnt only about models, fashion catwalks, homosexuals and superficial people. It is also a kind of art. Each model has its idea (although sometimes only in the subconscious of designer). A good fashion designer plays with fabric and just compose. Usually the man has a most attractive idea in his head, then draw it on  paper in the form of sketches, which later are improved and etc. But if a man want to realize his ideas, he will must have some experience in the art. So as every designer has his own style of models, each of them are unique and recognizable by their sketch/ croquis. To be sure, compare on your own… Continue reading

History of Vanity Fair

Vanity Fair was originally founded as a British weekly magazine in 1868 by Thomas Gibson Bowles. Subtitled “A Weekly Show of Political, Social, and Literary Wares”, it offered its Victorian- and Edwardian-era readership articles on current events and issues of the day, reviews of the theatre, new books, reports on social events, and the latest scandals, together with serialized fiction, word games, and other trivia. However the magazine was perhaps best known for its caricatures. More than two thousand of these caricatures appeared of subjects that included artists, athletes, royalty, statesmen, scientists, authors, actors, soldiers and scholars.
