All of these come from the pages of the March issue of Harper's Bazaar. As I flipped through, the trend was pervasive. Not all of them were photographed as black and white, and the Max Mara is in color, but isn't the pattern play lovely? The next photo must be from the same line as Madonna's Grammy's outfits. It's really sensational. I would have loved to see it in person. What is the trim? Is it sewn down? It would be crazy if it was untethered; and when you wore it, it would swing.
The next piece is Madonna for Versace. Madge sure is holding up better than Donatella, eh? The last piece, which is St. Laurent, looks like the outfit that Madonna wore to last year's Oscars. I love it. If I were a rock n'roll singer, not the punk that I am, I would wear this outfit as my uniform.
I doubt that the Prada pieces are black and white, but the grey tones that are created by the colors photographed in black and white make a nice pastel compared to the others that seems so severe. Perhaps that's what this is ... Spring will roar in like a lion according to Harper's ... these definitely aren't lamb-like.
