It’s been seven years since fashion lost it's adored enfant terrible, Alexander McQueen, and it goes without saying that his absence goes far from unnoticed. CR Fashion Book pays homage to the void left behind and his vision in one of the publication’s fall/winter 2017 editorials featuring Lara Stone. Shot by Steven Klein, another industry player known for his shock-value, the spread features Lara in a post-apocalyptic future wearing looks that are quintessentially McQueen. The images are both disturbing and mesmerizing, a hallmark of the designer and arbiter of seat-squirming theatrics, featuring dark and dramatized makeup (often sans eyebrows) and alienesque skull caps.
Force of Nature or force to be reckoned with? Industry darling Kaia Gerber posed for the October issue of Vogue UK one of the first glimpses at the direction newly minted editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful, will take the devotional publication. Lensed by Lachlan Bailey, Kaia is brooding for fall with smudged, smokey eye makeup and perfectly wild, teased hair. the mostly gray-scale images are set around an old, cracked manor with overgrown foliage and antique molding, fitting for the oncoming spooky vibes of the month. Kaia wears tiered dresses, animal prints, tastefully frilled shirting and a studded leather jacket.
