At first glance, it may seem like the two stars are stepping out from a 30s movie, especially with the bias cut maxi gown Kate Moss wore which she designed for Topshop since their last collaboration four years ago. Besides Topshop’s website and stores, Nordstrom and Net-A-Porter also carry Kate Moss’ collection. Some pieces have already sold out, get your hands on before they’re gone!
Back to the stunning bias-cut dress on the supermodel, this special and widely loved cut is first created by Madeleine Vionnet, populared by prominent designers like Coco Chanel, Gilbert Adrian and Claire McCardell. Dresses with this cut fluidly drape over women’s body, achieving the rare balance of elegant and seductive.
A bias-cut slip dress is truly a classic piece that never goes out of style. Above, Kate Moss paired hers with a fringe jacket and sandals for an old-hollywood glamorous look, while Nicole Richie added a modern and subversive spin with sleek pointy toe pump, prim up-do, black manicure and minimal jewelry.
In Chinese: 乍看这两个造型好像是直接从30年代的电影里走出来的，尤其是凯特·摩丝(Kate Moss)的这条斜裁的吊带长裙和奠定了好莱坞风格的著名设计师吉尔伯特·艾德里安 (Gilbert Adrian)为当时的女明星们设计的裙子极其相似。这种斜裁是由另一位从不画草图、直接操刀的传奇女设计师玛德琳·薇欧奈 (Madeleine Vionnet)首创，不仅艾德里安将它发扬光大，而且像可可·香奈儿、克莱尔·麦卡德尔 (Claire McCardell)等都设计过这种剪裁的晚礼服。独特的斜裁加上丝滑的面料凸显女性的柔美曲线，典雅又性感，是值得投资、不会过时的单品。
