Cher

Louis Vuitton SS14

The Stephen Jones-designed headpieces of the Louis Vuitton by Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2014 Show were a nod to the creations that Bob Mackie designed for Cher, to celebrate « the showgirl in all of us » (the motif that covered Edie Campbell’s body revisited the « Graffiti » pattern that Stephen Sprouse created for the Louis Vuitton by Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2001 Collection).

Other Cher-influenced collections : Charlie by Matthew Zink Spring/Summer 2012 (this swimwear line channeled Cher « bursting into the Rainbow Room »), Gucci by Tom Ford Spring/Summer 1999 (this « Californian hippie cool » collection, made in collaboration with Francisco Costa, was an homage to Cher), Proenza Schouler Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (the half-plaited ponytails of this show, styled by Paul Hanlon for Frédéric Fekkai, referenced ’70s muses such as Cher), Roberto Cavalli Spring/Summer 2004 (this show opened with screen projections which featured stills and video clips of Cher, especially in the ’70s).

To read about Stephen Sprouse-inspired collections, search for the « Stephen Sprouse » post that I published on November 9, 2012.

The Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2013 Show referenced, among other ’80s icons or movies, Bananarama.

Some Bananarama-influenced items : Chloé Autumn/Winter 2006-2007 (a red oversize bag echoed Bananarama’s style), Topshop Unique Spring/Summer 2009 (the bows in the hair were inspired by Bananarama).

Furthermore, Siobhan Fahey modeled the Jerome C Rousseau Spring/Summer 2012 Collection (Jerome C Rousseau told vogue.com that the ex-Bananarama’s member was his 1st crush).
