It’s very rare when we get to see a good menswear inspired shoot focusing on the suit, but for 2010 fashion editors around the globe highlighted some of the year’s most intriguing and sharply tailored suit pieces. Whether monochromatic or patterned, two piece or three piece, this year was a time for the ladies to wear the pants. Below the cut, find twelve sweet suit looks of the season that stood out for our latest Year in Review.
Continuing with our Year in Review, we take a look at the beauty stories of 2010. From Vogue Paris to Elle Sweden, this year was certainly filled with bold and bright beauty. For this review, we complied a list of voluminous coifs, shimmering lips, bedazzled eyelashes and of course–those sparkling gems!
This year, many editorials (and campaigns) took a walk on the wild side with animal prints taking center stage from labels such as Dolce & Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli and Salvatore Ferragamo. Whether out for a night on the town or getting glam in the studio, 2010 was a year for leopards to show their spots!
2010 has been a year filled with retro inspired editorials. With sophisticated and feminine garments from the likes of Prada, Louis Vuitton and Miu Miu–the fall 2010 season had its fair share of 50s houswives and 60s divas. From Vogue Germany’s time traveling homage to musicians to Elle UK’s dance marathon, paying homage to yesterday’s fashions was all the rage.
Yet another break out star of this year was Melodie Monrose (d’management group and Wilhelmina Models). The Martinique beauty may be shy but she has dominated the catwalk for the spring 2011 season with a combination of 49 shows. Fashion Gone Rogue was able to ask her about the most memorable job of the year, and her response revealed an upcoming editorial for Vogue Italia: “I would have to say my favorite job as of right now was shooting for Italian Vogue with Emma Summerton and Edward Enninful. Doing a Vogue shoot is every models goal and to do it after only 4 months was completely unbelievable!”
Continuing with our Year in Review, we now take a look at the fall 2010 campaigns. One major trend of the fall was groups–from Versace to Louis Vuitton, pairs and quartets were all the rage. Another trend of the fall season was minimalism. Many labels went with simple studio shoots or stark black and white photos from photography greats such as Mario Testino and Mert & Marcus. In the battle of spring versus fall, which season won out?
With spring 2011 campaigns surfacing this month, it only seems fitting to take a look back at some of the most notable campaigns from the 2010 season for our latest installment of Year in Review. From Alexander McQueen to Valentino, it was an interesting campaign season that gave us fantasy, glamour and full blown fashion!
Red: a powerful color which can command attention in almost every venue. This year we saw our fair share of editorials inspired by the crimson hue. From Harper’s Bazaar US to Vogue Turkey, red was a color fashion editors loved this year with the help of sharp pieces from Giorgio Armani, Celine, Valentino and more.
Daphne Groeneveld of Union Models was undeniably one of 2010′s break out stars. Whether she was appearing the pages of Vogue Paris or starring in a Miu Miu campaign, the 15 year old Dutch beauty (who turns sixteen on Christmas Eve by the way) did it with her own unique style.
It is time to go back to summer 2010. The days were hot and the fashions were sizzling. Kicking off our year in review, we salute some of the most memorable summer themed shoots–beach shoots to be more specific. From Vogue Paris to Harper’s Bazaar Spain, fashion’s love for the beach and swimwear is not something to be forgotten.
