Embrace the 80s

In this month's W, there was a photo editorial titled "Hothouse flower" featuring 80s-inspired curvy evening numbers and modelled dramtically by Gisele Bundchen.

Louis Vuitton silk dress. Vintage Givenchy earrings from Georgian Village; Louis Vuitton choker.

Stefano Pilati paid tribute to the 80s YSL by featuring 80s inspired satin and silhouettes and those big chunky square belts, a must-have for fall.

For cool vintage, go to Frock NYC.

I'm loving the Diesel Future ads. The bright colours and pop-art remind me of the eighties, though the ad of course, is about the future.

And on the musical front, Gwen Stefani's Rich Girl Video was also inspired from the 80s. The David LaChapelle-directed pirate-themed video was inspired by a Vivienne Westwood ad from the '80s. "I am a Vivienne Westwood maniac!" Gwen says. "She is so magic!"
