I shot models in their own style during haute couture in Paris for Vogue.com. It was quite cold so it was interesting to see how they stayed warm without using huge down jackets. See the rest of the pictures here.
I got help from my friend Pete to shoot this picture of me. I had bought a crystal thing in a girly shop in Copenhagen and wanted to see the effect it gave, and I love the Dior walls so much – the grey/blue color with the white is so pretty. I’m wearing a hooded scarf by Marc Jacobs and Maison Martin Margiela sheepskin jacket.
So to see my first ever couture show and have it to be Givenchy was incredible. The atmosphere in the big ballroom, the people, the anticipation of how the collection will be like, people hugging and chatting and then – it’s on. Wowza! I got goosebumps and was in complete awe. Some people were amazed with the collection and some disappointed. I haven’t quite made up my mind yet, I just know I loved the experience of being there and especially that last dress worn by Natalia Vodianova.
Catherine Baba on her way to Christian Dior Haute Couture today was the highlight of the day.
Absolutely amazing coat! It had very interesting layers, shapes and twists. She was going to email me the name of the designer, let’s hope she remembers.
Update: She did remeber! The coat is by Alessandra Marchi. Thank you Annlyse! Bisous.
The draping of her dress, the color and the contrast with her hair and skin is pretty breathtaking.
Catherine Baba – no words needed.
I would love to own this Givenchy Couture by Riccardo Tisci bodysuit. Shot by Hedi Slimane. His photographs are beyond beautiful, there is something magical with his simple and clean lighting.
