CALL IN THE CAVALRY- Arizona Muse in Vogue

i love epic spreads in vogue!

arthur elgort, steven meisel, bruce weber and mario testino always do it best. now we can add david sims to the list. “call in the cavalry”, photographed by david sims and styled by the genius grace coddington in the November 2011 american vogue, portrays model arizona muse, one of my favorites, and actor jeremy irvine in a wartime england military romance. gorgeous epic pictorial! the beautiful couple, the clothes, the horses, the dramatic country side. elegant, moody and romantic!

long and lean silhouettes, equestrian influences, military themes, black leather, bold strong shoulders, long sexy gloves- just a few of the fall trends set against a black, ivory, grey and olive color palette. a few of my favorite things are highlight also- white shirts, black leather bombers, military jackets. and who doesn’t love a jodhpur! chic with hermés riding boots! love, love, love!

gorgeous clothes by miu miu, maison martin margiela, nina ricci, balenciaga to name a few, but the ivory sarah burton designed gown for alexander mcqueen made out of hundreds of yards of raw-edged tulle is the triumph! absolutely beautiful! breathtaking!

the epic concludes- the war is won, beauty and romance lives on! thank god!
