On Sunday Azzedine Alaia celebrated his birthday and gave me a perfect excuse to finally post a few photos of Christy Turlington wearing Alaia's designs in the Tropical whites editorial published in the May 1990 issue of American Vogue. The styling was done by Grace Coddington and photography - Hand Feurer, one of my favourite fashion photographers of all times.
The story made me realise how iconic and identifieable these dream team members are... Christy, of course - one of the supermodels. Azzedine Alaia and his signature figure-adoring shapes and intricately woven designs and details. Grace Coddington with her impeccable taste and genius of creating absolutely flawless looks. And Hans Feurer's ability of capturing emotions and life moments as if they just happened, naturally, without script and planning, and then translating them into the softness, slightly grainy, sun-gilded images.
