The Five Best: Fashion Shows
2014 was the year that the famous Victoria’s Secret catwalk show was hosted in London for the first time. During the show, Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio donned two Dream Angel Fantasy Bras each worth an outrageous two million dollars, accompanied by a live soundtrack from Taylor Swift, in a candy floss coloured dressing gown and matching lingerie, naturally.
Who wouldn’t want to climb on board a Chanel adorned carousel?Karl Lagerfeld’s models did just that during the Chanel Autumn/Winter show after walking the circular catwalk displaying timeless skirt suits and effortless oversized sweaters. The show was an example of why the fashion house has remained a strong favourite for celebrities and fashion fans alike, across the last two centuries.
Alexander McQueen Autumn/Winter 2006
McQueen made clear to us that fashion is most definitely an art form, as he exhibited his Autumn/Winter 2006 collection which revisited and refined the ‘Highland Rape’ show: his career starter. Immaculate tailoring paired with textures of ruffled feathers and silky chiffon in muted tones made for an eerie atmosphere, heightened by a holograph of a floating Kate Moss enveloped in layers of billowing fabric.
Versace Autumn/Winter 1991
Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, StephanieSeymour,Christy Turlington, Helena Christensen, Yasmeen Ghauri…Versace’s Autumn/Winter 1991 show was all about ‘The Supermodels’. It was a chance for the girls to have fun as they bounced along the catwalk in bold colours accessorized with tousled locks and super-sexy thigh-high boots, embodying its soundtrack (‘Freedom!’ by George Michael).
This collection was a celebration of experimentation and the extreme; the show was opened by five dark silhouettes in black latex bodysuits and black platter hats. The exhibition was filled with show-stopping creations including that iconic bare-bottom dress and cyborg style corseting.
