I read Harper’s Bazaar on the plane to London and it gets massive props for two particularly awesome spreads this month (although I found the Kate Moss cover story rather boring), entitled “The Mode of Almodovar” and “Designer Double Take”.
“The Mode of Almodovar” spread “recasts the beloved Spanish director’s most memorable cinematic scenes with some of fashions most famous faces”. I was of course thrilled because its right up my alley with a fashion meets film theme, and Almodovar is one of my favorite film directors. The spread stars Sonia Rykiel in Women on the Verge, Angela Missoni in Volver and others, including Almodovar himself, all photographed by Jason Schmidt.
The concept of “Designer Double Take” is dressing up model Iris Strubegger as a bunch of famous designers, photographed by Karl Lagerfeld. My favorite is Vivienne Westwood, although of course Donatella and Karl are spot on as well.
