Dress in Tuxedo

LE SMOKING: Helmut Newton photos
Helmut Lang tux (last worn HERE). Milly dress (last worn HERE). Chanel shoes.
My tux is by a Helmut (Lang) & derivative of another Helmut (Newton). Mr. Newton was more than a fashion photographer, but his images iconicized clothes, especially YSL's le smoking for French Vogue in the 1970s. His black & white stylized scenes are erotic urban landscapes - I prefer them to color pictures.
Vintage ring & Changette brooch.
Brocade & brooch & tux topper (this cropped cut looks best unbuttoned, flying open over frocks).
Fields of Gold dress = candlelit dinners en famille + drawing rooms glittering with luminaries + city gardens (secret & strangely discombobulating but super for escaping overheated apartments).
Couture Costume Change: Is everyone in the world watching The Academy Awards Sunday night?
