What Women Want

Louis Vuitton RTW Fall 2010

After years of watching rather skeletal girls walk down the runway and dominate print ads we are finally seeing a revival of the hourglass.  Models and actresses are finally embracing their curves.  Crystal Renn and Christina Hendricks are being lauded by the media for showing a healthy beautiful figure.  Louis Vouitton's recent ads show three models in deliciously fifties dresses hugging their curves.  This embrace of a fuller figure has coincided with the recent obsession of Mad Men and the fifties/sixties.  A time of wonderful decadence and escapism we are seeing a resurgence of this mentality in the latest fashion trends for the fall. Cinched waists, sweet ruffles, and a focus on the bust show both our fascination with our past and women's reclamation of their bodies.  Prada and Louis Vouitton's latest shows could potentially be labeled "What Women Want", and indeed I know the new silhouette is one I want to stay with us for more than one season.
