For all we know, it could be two separate garments both personally fitted and hand-stitched with strands of Alber‘s own hair, but the more likely explanation is that even Anna Wintour could like a dress enough to repeat it within a 40-day period.
And the belted floral Lanvin in question is certainly worthy of double outings: Without the voluminous petticoat shown on the Fall 2013 runway, the fuchsia frock better fits La Wintour’s streamlined, ladylike M.O. while simultaneously lending the merest smidgen of toughness via the unfinished edges. (Not that she needs any more. Toughness, we mean.) Nude shoes and possibly the same necklace completed the look both times.
Considering a Spring 2009 Chanel Couture also made two trips out of Anna’s closet— once for the 2009 Met Gala and another for a state dinner in honor of David Cameron — this just confirms Vogue‘s resident granter-of-napkin-wishes is really, hyper, ultra, super cool.
But we already knew that.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
