Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

13 May

Vivienne Westwood AW1415























The makeup that Val Garland created for the Vivienne Westwood Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 Show partly referenced Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec’s paintings.

Other Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec-inspired shows : Anna Sui Autumn/Winter 2009-2010 (this show paid homage to the color palette of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec’s oeuvre), Christian Cota Autumn/Winter 2008-2009 (this collection referenced Paris’ nocturnal characters depicted by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec), Dior by John Galliano Couture Autumn/Winter 2007-2008 (the motifs of this show paid tribute to various painters, including Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec), Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Spring/Summer 2011 (to describe this show, titled « Punk Cancan », Lucinda Chambers, from « British Vogue », wrote that it was « lovely, very Toulouse-Lautrec … »).

    Such a fitting make up for the Vivienne Westwood show. I went to a breath taking exhibition about Toulouse Lautrec when it came to Australia: forever imprinted in my memory. Beautiful x

    Arty Punk beauty. Bingo. Fabulous description. I agree! (I also adore the dress, the make-up, and shoes. Very Moulin Rouge. Jane Avril would have approved!)

      I’m so happy to see that you’ve liked this post because you surely know a lot about the Moulin Rouge ! This look is as captivating as the beauties the tiny Toulouse-Lautrec used to portray ! X

    The dress is amazing and the shoes divine. The belt, necklaces and jacket aren’t too bad, either! 🙂
    I see “La Goulue Arriving at the Moulin Rouge with Two Women (1892)” in the hair and make-up.
