♥ | The Chosen One?

Psynopsis Haider Ackermann Collage

Putting together the phantasy photo shoot for Vogue Italia for my styling course is well fun… Now I'm good friends with all kind of location scout and luxury hotel websites (which included getting lost in interior design dreams for hours), as well as models.com. (Now who do you think is the sexiest model? Adriana Lima. Uff, had not even heard her name before. And the Top Icon model? Gisele Bundchen… well, biên sur! with Kate Moss as a close 2nd.)

And my shoot must feature designs from Haider Ackermann’s autumn/winter show. Just look at these drapings and colour combinations… LUSH. Could a guy who lived on the streets and is one of the Antwerp brain children really be the new head of Chanel*? That would be too cool because he's definitely my chosen one.

*But it seems Karl keeps changing his mind, and Haider is dreaming other dreams anyway…

I was already in love with HA, but if I didn't know his work, your post would have started the heart racing.

INTRO TO MY LIFE said...

i love this post and yea i know what you mean with the models.com rank list, its random to say the least.
p.s. I really hope Haider Ackermann does take over chanel

Susie said...

I don't know if they're the "sexiest," but I love Natalia and Rosie. Models.com is an amazing resource, isn't it? I love searching for editorials I might not have seen otherwise.

That sounds like a SWEET assignment. Styling seems like it's incredibly fun to study.

I totally can't decide who the sexiest model is. Erin O'Connor is my favourite of all time but she actually has a regal and ethereal quality rather than raw sex appeal. There's one quite masculine chick with a lot of tattoos and short black hair, but I can NEVER remember her name. She's got game, whatever her name is!

I never got over Omahyra Mota in the 90s, with her slicked down crop and tattoos. I think i wanted to be her!
She may even be the reason i cut my hair so short back then...oh dear, oh dear
Anyhooo...i am loving these jewel tones, and the drapey luxuriousness of it all. And i'm really curious to see more of these little course updates, it's vicarious living for me!
Hope you had a lovely weekend
xx

Silver Strands said...

What a fun assignment! And you've got great taste, so it should be easy for you :)

E said...

*sigh!* I want to take a styling course! Sounds like so much fun! And these fabrics are sooo dreamy...

SabinePsynopsis said...

Vint Junky - Omahyra Mota... I remember her! She was so hot and so different.

Tea for 2 - Could Omahyra Mota be the 'masculine chick with lots of tattoos'?

Maddy said...

That's awesome! And I bet a lot of fun! There's so much I would like to learn about how the pros style and take their photos :) Can't wait to see more!

Filipa said...

Beaut!! You are going to be soo good with your styling course. In those HA clothes I could see Freja Beha Erichson! (she's actually modelling one of the designs:P). And a sleek shoot, some metal and androgyny, dark colours and sexy poses! :) I so WANT to do the course too, boohoo! :(

Ah, well done, Sabine, soon you can teach me how to style my outfits;-)

Veshoevius said...

Is it a theoretical shoot or are you actually going to get an opp to shoot Ackermans clothes?? That would be awesome!
