THE FIRST ITALIAN FASHION SHOW

The first fashion show in Italy happened in 1951 at Villa Torrigiani.

In that time the photos were still black and white.

The models were not so slim at all, having some fat was a plus!

The catwalk was the normal floor, in the same level of the guests.

The eyes of the guests were only and exclusively concentrated at the garments, different from today that in a fashion show most of the times a top model or a celebrity has more evidence than the whole collection presented.

Nowadays the fashion shows changed a lot, they have ultra slim models, celebrities at the first row, sometimes a live concert and always a loooot of important journalists. They are a huge event for a brand, need monthsss of preparation. But even having so many differences between now and some years ago, fashion show has all the time the same objective: promote and sell! This will never change.

Anna Wintour is the super owner of the fashion event COSTUME INSTITUTE  GALA. Every year the event has a different theme, this year, as i said in the last post, was “The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion”. According to that, Wintour choose this black and white ‘simple’ chic Chanel dress:

Last year the theme was “Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy”, Anna went directly from “Star Wars” wearing this amazing Karl Lagerfeld:

I think both looks are super beautiful, classy, elegant, chic! Anna understands all about fashion world but she also knows how to dress really simply chic, she is never over and never less. I’m not sure if I liked more the superhero look or the model one, they are different styles and both gorgeous to me.

Which one you prefer?
