It wasn’t all that long ago that the mandatory uniform for a glamorous evening soiree was a body conscious dress that climbed the thigh, hugged the hips, and accentuated the shoulders into unnatural proportions. It was sequins, it was bandages, it was Herve Leger and Balmain. As far as 2011’s fashion trends go though, our choices for night-time have reverted back to more traditional types of sexy.
Representing that fact is Vogue Russia’s August 2011 issue, in a shoot starring Daria Strokous. Those minis of yore are replaced by relaxed tuxedos and floating sheer maxi skirts, black and white colour palettes and wide brimmed hats.
And if you thought minimalist solid jewellery had to be reserved for Grecian gowns and resort wear think again: as this editorial attests to, you can also work it with masculine-inspired evening looks.
