The Dark Glamour of Gucci: Lindsey Wixson

Has fashion model Lindsey Wixson sparkled this year or what? Are you a fan? I find her look very versatile. It's both sweet and vixen! I really took notice of her when she was featured in various 2012 Mulberry ads and also as a bride in Karl Lagerfeld's Chanel runway show. I applaud each and every model, but there are always a few that SHINE, SPARKLE and have that extra PIZZAZZ! Don't you think?

Well she's featured this month in a fashion editorial entitled "The Dark Glamour of Gucci". It's the November 2012 edition of Harper's Bazaar Korea magazine and it was lensed by Michael Schwartz. Black, leather, feathers, floral and lace, makeup these "dark" fashions!

Speaking of DARK and BLACK! When I cleaned out my closet a couple of weeks ago, I discovered I had a SEA of black! None of the pieces in my closet had the depth like these fine garments. I call what I have...FLAT BLACK! HaHaHa This shoot really gave me some ideas. Black does not have to be FLAT! Add some depth to it!

Have you shaken up the black pieces in your closet? DO tell! Have a nice weekend everybody!


How do you WAKE and SHAKE UP YOUR Black!

  2. Thanks for stopping by! I indeed know debi! :D

    And lovely pictures. I loved how they had this dark effect to them, but were still so glamourous as you said.

    I in fact think I wear black too often! :D So it is definitely a go to thing!

  5. Those black outfits are amazing, I love wearing black as you can really let the texture "do the talking" and that's something quite elegant... Have a lovely weekend xo

  6. She looks amazing here! Her hair in the last shot is stunning :)

  7. She is growing on me, but I cannot say I am a huge fan... still like her, but not love, if you see what I mean.
    You know, all my blacks (so very few of those1) are still hanging in a wardrobe... Maybe I'll get them out later, in a month or so... :)

    Have a beautiful day!

  8. I read so many less magazines since I've started blogging - I find a lot more inspiration from the fabulous real women on the internet, I have to say :) So this is my first run in with Lindsey Wixson but she does look pretty amazing. I mean, who could argue with all of these gorgeous black ensembles? Not me, that's for sure! I love wearing black on black, I never feel like it needs waking or shaking - it is the simplest form of elegance to me :)

  10. Interesting issue my dear!I try to be more colourful, because I like especially pastel-coloured outfits, but in the end my F/W closet is always PACKED with BLACK. I perk it up with scarves, bangles, and the like, but I don't give up on it, because I find black extremely elegant and versatile. As shown by the wide range of fabrics and reflections displayed in the photoshoot, it doesn't have to be flat. I love black. kisses my love. Coco

  11. She's so pretty and so, so tall! She is a great model and I love these pictures! I love wearing black and I can't help get it out when it starts getting colder!

  12. She is beautiful! When I wear all black, I try to add texture like fur or feathers to give it some pizazz. Have a wonderful weekend. Heather

  13. What a beauty. She definitely has that certain mix that is very unique and interesting.

  14. I'll have ALL of these thank you!! They are marvellous. I love wearing black. I have feathers like these ones, gives me an idea :) I think black is so beautiful and rich, goes well with deep colours like burgundy and gold which I'm loving at the moment, green too :) Amazing photos. Have a gorgeous weekend doll, hope it's a fun one for you :) <3

  15. those textured black pieces are amazing! I really like that last picture :) The cover photo and the feather jacket freak me out a little for some reason - I bet they are really soft though :)

  17. I agree, she's got a great look that seems like it could be very edgy or very sweet. Her lips are bigger than Angelina's! I'm jealous :D Cool pics.

  19. What a stunningly chic editorial. She is such a beautiful girl. Although I'll admit I didn't even know she existed until today lol.

    I tend to wear a LOT of black during the winter. Black dresses and skirts and boots. It's like my go-to winter color. Now I want to give it some depth! ;)

  20. Kim, my sweety...you must see Dark Shadows...ignore the reviews of it...it's your movie, haha :) I absolutely loved it...might watch it again sometime :) Made me laugh :))) A lot of the leaves have turned to mush now, but I got lucky with that tree :))) I love love that colour when they turn to it. Thank you so much for your precious comment, they keep me blogging - for real! Some days I feel like stopping, especially when I'm bombarded with 'follow me's and cheap one word comments, haha. It gets exhausting, but yours are always a joy!! And you never fail to brighten my day :))) DO do do watch this movie & let me know when you do as well :))) And if you can get the BBC, watch out for a drama show called 'Paradise or 'The Paradise' as I've seen it called in somethings...you will LOVE it!! Am addicted to it, haha! One more episode of the season to go for me next week, I can hardly wait & Downton will be on it's last episode here as well, you will enjoy that season too. Have to wait until the new Year for Game of Thrones, I need new movies/books/tv shows to hold me over until then, hahaha!! Have a gorgeous weekend doll!! Love you too <3

  25. I've shaken up the black pieces in my closet just by buying more color, lol. I have a lot of "flat black" as well, so the next time I see something in black (and only in black), I will make sure it has some sort of detail or texture to it.

  26. I love all these photos! So much inspiration!

  29. I am awful when it comes to recognizing models and such, and I've never even heard of her, but she has a very striking face. And I love the red accents with the black!

  31. Love these textures- and the reminder to try out some dark berry lipstick. Btw, I just read your post on disappearing bloggers and I laughed out loud! I definitely understand the disappearing blogger effect- I was almost one of them, but luckily realized that blogging makes me happy and I don't want to let it go- even if it is hard to find the time sometimes!

  41. Hiya doll, So sweet. I shall be posting yours too :) Yes, say the value is less than $10 and has no commercial value and mark it as a gift. I think that's what my husband said to do, as the last package I got, I had to pay in order to receive it and the amount I had to pay was more than what was actually in it, hahaha! I will check with my husband as he sends a lot of things for work. But, I believe that's what you write on the slip :)) Have a sweet weekend doll xxx

  44. Ooh even her name has a vixen vibe to it- Wixson haha. I love black, I chuckled a little when I read how you described yours as 'flat black'. These pictures are beautiful, so I guess I should be adding a little more sheer, lace and feathers to my own black collection.

  46. it's been a while since I truly loved a vampy editorial, but this is the one! Lindsey looks fantastic, I wasn't sure about her look when she first started out, but am loving her more now that I've seen her do other things.

    I hope you're having a sweet weekend!

  48. Love Lindsey. I saw an interview she did awhile back, and she was sooooo charming. Love the gap between her teeth too:)
    And how lucky are you to find new stuff in the closet. I should clean out my crap and see if I can find something new in mine:)
    Have a great weekend.

  51. Kim I was thinking about you this morning when I tried some new cupcakes (dark chocolate and guiness beer) they were really nice.
    I never heard about that model before, but the editorial is amazing. Im like you, no many black pieces on my closet, I will have to get some ones.

  52. I don't think I have as much black in my closet as I used to, but I like the thought of "un-flattening" whatever black remains in my closet:p ... oh, and following you now, for sure:)

  57. Oh Kim, wow this editorial is so FAB! The feathered texture is everything. I'm a conservative black gal myself but with the right outfit why not? I'll be black swan for a day. LOL

    My favorite look is the last image with that sheer top. So pretty. Lindsey was the right choice for this shoot. LOVE!
    Have a fab day honey!
