Spotted: Vertigo’s Gray Suit in Ralph Lauren’s Fall 2014 RTW Collection

Color often played an important part in Alfred Hitchcock’s films. He was famous for making the clothes in his films an integral part to the characters portrayed on screen, and the color of the clothes were directed on the scripts themselves.

Spotted: Black Swan on the Runway

I love findings like this. Whether there was any kind of Black Swan influence is irrelevant when it’s this much fun to spot the similarities. So enjoy it. Vivienne Westwood Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear:   Jean Louis Sabaji Fashion Forward Dubai Season 4 Fall 2015: It was really hard to capture a good screencap for the Black Swan scene above because Natalie Portman’s character, Nina, is twirling so quickly that my caps...
