The thing with superheroes is that we would all love to be one. Everything is better when you have special powers and a kick ass costume to go with them. I recently watched The Watchmen which I think is actually a great movie with spectacular special effect, but I’m a sucker for this kind of movies so I may be a little subjective.
I especially loved the screen adaptation of Silk Spectre’s costume – never has latex looked so good. The extreme sexiness of the costume was well balanced by the long hair with the very sharp bang.
I can’t help but think that we can really talk about a superhero inspiration when it comes to fashion – and the 2008 "Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy" at Met (Metropolitan Museum of Art) really talked about how Superman, Batman and and the rest have influenced real world fashion (avant-garde fashion, ready-to-wear pieces, and high-performance sportswear).
Just look at some of the pieces the greatest designers of our time created around superheroes (I’m talking John Galliano, Dolce & Gabbana, Alexander McQueen, Bernhard Wilhelm, Jeremy Scott ).
And here are my absolute favorite superhero inspired looks form the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala. This people really took into account the theme and had fun, yet also managed to look modern and refined.
Zac Posen si Kate Mara (purtand Zac Posen) inspirati de tema galei, dar aratand modern in acelasi timp! Hello to the new and improved Superman si Lois Lane!!!
Christina Ricci purtand Givenchy Haute Couture - o superba si neasteptata varianta pentru Wonder Woman!
Kate Bosworth purtand o rochie vintage Chanel Haute Couture (parca inspirata din benzi desenate). Karl Lagerfeld being himself - he's awesome enough!
Gisele Bundchen aratand spectaculos intr-o rochie Atelier Versace. E aproape supranatural ca cineva sa arate asa de bine!
Acesta este un articol pe care trebuia sa-l scriu acum doi ani, dar cum atunci nu aveam blog o sa o fac acum - este unul despre supereroi si cum fiecare ne-am dori sa avem puteri supranaturale.
Mai sus aveti si cateva dintre fotografiile mele preferate de la Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala, Superheroes Fashion and Fantasy in New York care a avut loc pe 5 may 2008!
