Personally I adore the personality of Poppy‘s younger sister, so I’m not impartial or objective. Although I know that Kate Moss has a very wide trajectory and Delevingne has still a lot to be done. But we cannot deny is that she’s “The Model of The Year”
It was up and out into an enchanted garden that Raf Simons sent his Alices in Wonderland this afternoon for his second couture offering since taking the helm of the house of Christian Dior. Inside a mirrored tube of a catwalk setting in Paris’ Tuileries, the scene was set with a maze of bushes for the models – all dark pixie crop wigs, deep red lips and pale skin of a fairy-tale fashion – to weave in and out of.
“It was very beautiful, modern and a relevant take on couture,” said Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman after the show. “Although he used traditional aspects of Dior – the peplum, the jacket shapes, the volume in the skirts and the bustiers – it was done in a restrained way.”
It was a beautiful curation of layers; bustier and peplums and jackets all on top of one another, controlled in a lovely yet unconventional colour palette of mint, burnt orange and aubergine. There was beautiful embroidery but again it was restrained and elegant. Slow and steady, after all, wins the race – a sentiment that certainly seems to be ringing true with Simons.

Cinematic: The Theme in Fashion for the Year Ahead
Forget some of the more edgier, rock-inspired urban looks we have seen dominating the catwalks and the high streets throughout the most recent couple of years. 2013 is poised to be a year for vintage-inspired cinematic apparel. As, for many readers, the cold of winter is now a reality, the thought of a new fashion trend fresh for the new year is enough to bring plenty of warm thoughts. The end of the year is the perfect time to look ahead to the next year; it is coming up to ‘sales’ time, when the high street will be awash with attractive makeover deals and cut-price designer garments. What better a time to stock up on suitable clothing for the year ahead, and perfect our accompanying makeup looks? The best news is that one of the key themes for 2013 will be gorgeous ‘cinematic’ fashion. Cinematic fashion is influenced by the analogue film and cinema era, and embraces the late 18th Century Belle Epoque silhouette. It is characterised by fluid layering, translucent fabrics and details inspired by exotic bohemia. Yet the sub-genres of this interesting trend range from the light and dreamy to the dark and dramatic. Here are three of the key sub themes emerging from this beautiful trend.
Belle Epoque and dancing
The Belle Epoque period, which ran from around 1890 through to the First World War, contained many short, artistic films that featured a celebration of movement and dance. This was accentuated in the clothing that was worn; dreamy dresses and bohemian robes were draped over the main characters, creating an air of fantasy and intrigue. Draped silhouettes and light layers have been showcased in the upcoming collections of Donna Karan in New York. Her cinematic collection is awash with golds and light turquoises, long flowing fabrics and lashings of gold sequins and satin that create shimmers and shines made to dazzle in a warm, subtle way.
