I love browsing the vintage clothes on 1stdibs for wild pieces like the Versace dress I blogged this weekend. I recently found two designs that are soooo Jackie Kennedy, without the pillbox hats. Actually, they’re way more literal than that. This one-of-a-kind dress by one of my favorite designers, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, features a silk sheath that was hand-painted with Jackie Kennedy’s face. It’s covered with a black chiffon “mourning veil.” The piece, which is on hold, was exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum in 2006.
Also spotted: this cashmere sweater/tunic/dress-thing, covered with Jackie photos. It’s available for $475.
I’m also having fun looking for clothes that would be worthy of the new, ultra-’70s movie American Hustle. I can’t wait to see that for the fashion alone.
It’s too bad that nobody wore this disco-worthy Loris Azzaro dress to the premiere.
This over-the-top jacket by Estevez would have been the next best thing.
Man, I should have been invited to that opening. I would have dressed crazy! YOLO!
New York Magazine has a fun story on the hairstyles of American Hustle here.
