90s Alaia
90s Alaia
circa 1991 leopard Azzedine Alaias: a wool peplum Jacket with leopard print chenille bodysuit.
Boots are leopard ponyskin. Love the boots, even more so since I gave up my leopard pumps, so I'm lacking in the leopard footwear department. boo-hoo
Bill Blass 80s Karl Lagerfeld Chanel

Bill Blass dress, not sure of the year, forgot to make note of some of these things, but I'm going to venture a guess and put it at the 80s.
80s Lagerfeld Chanel "trompe l'oeil" dress. Click to enlarge, you can see that the "jewelry" is part of the dress.

Fall 1996 Tom Ford era Gucci jersey dress and Carla Bruni backstage at Dolce & Gabbana (90s).

All personal scans from Fifty Years of Fashion by Valerie Steele.

There's one more last set of scans, and a perfect quote about yves saint laurent, which beautifully sums up my entire philosophy of dressing, that I may save for I don't know what exactly, but I'll know when that occasion arrives.
