It’s all about the hair.
It’s a family affair — a really, really good-looking one.
The pièce de résistance in her series of ARTPOP promo tour outfits is just as wild as you’d expect.
New blog Part Nouveau, or ‘partly new’, delves into fashion history to showcase the inspiration–be it art, photography or design–behind some of today’s biggest fashion moments. It’s fascinating and impossible not to get lost in, so we asked the site’s founder, Lilah Ramzi, to give us a little history lesson each week.
Next up? Raf Simons’s been paying attention in art history class…
Between Dior’s spring 2013 campaign and fall 2013 collection, there’s no doubt which artistic movement gets Raf Simons’s motor running. Pretty much everything he’s done at the storied house has had a surrealist vibe to it.
