Actors and Fashion

Depois de um post sobre os Globos de Ouro resolvi ficar pelo mesmo tema e falar um pouco sobre a relação que existe desde sempre entre o Cinema e a Moda.
Estes dois desde sempre foram intimamente ligados e, hoje em dia, essa união entre as duas áreas perdura.
Desde os anos 20 que a indústria da Moda vai buscar alguns dos seus "ícones" ao cinema, numa época em que a comunicação visual era muito importante as estrelas do cinema tornaram-se rapidamente parte da monarquia da moda.
As mulheres queriam tornar-se como as suas musas do grande ecrã, o cabelo, as roupas até a maqilhagem, e mesmo os homens seguiam com atenção o exemplo das estrelas masculina como Clark Gable e Cary Grant. Homens por toda a parte apareciam com o bigode popularizado por Clark Gable.
Ícones no cinema e também na moda, Marlene Dietrich e Katherine Hepburn foram importantes para tornarem popular e aceitável o uso de calças por mulheres. E, também, o corte de cabelo de Louise Brooks nos anos 20 foi imitado por mulheres por todo o mundo e ainda hoje é bastante usado.
Mais tarde Rita Hayworth, Aubrey Hepburn, Marylin Monroe e Brigitte Bardot fizeram também parte do rol de actrizes que encantaram gerações e gerações dentro e fora do ecrã.
Hoje em dia, esta associação entre as duas indústrias continua inabalável, com actrizes capas de revistas de moda e a desfilarem nas mais conhecidas passereles.
A Vogue US é conhecida pelas suas capas de celebridades, tendo, por exemplo, Meryl Streep como capa da edição de Janeiro deste ano. Muitos actores e actrizes brilham em editoriais de moda nas mais variadas revistas junto com os melhores modelos da actualidade.
É neste sentido que vos queria mostrar as novas "colaborações" entre as duas áreas.
Depois do muito falado desfile Primavera 2011 de Tom Ford com Julianne Moore e Laura Hutton na passerele, o último desfile da Prada de Homem, colecção Outono Inverno 2012 contou com as participações dos conhecidos actores Adrien Broby, Tim Roth, Gary Oldman e Willem Dafoe e os mais novos Emile Hirsch e Jamie Bell a encarnarem na perfeição o seu papel de modelos.
E, na W de Fevereiro 19 actores e actrizes são celebrados pelo grande talento demonstrado nos seus últimos papéis, representando todos personagens numa luta interior com si mesmos, numa complexa rede de medos e desejos,  num artigo/ editorial fotografado por Mario Sorrenti intitulado Best Performances.


Leaving a post about The Golden Globe Awards behind, I decided to go on with the same theme on this one, and talk about the long "relationship" between the Film industry and Fashion.
Both industries were since always intimately connected and, nowadays, that union still lasts.
Since the 20's the Fashion industry finds some of their great icons in the Film Industry, in a time when visual communication was very important film stars rapidly became part of the fashion royalty.
Women everywhere wanted to be like their big screen muses, the hair, the clothes and also the make-up, and even men followed attentively the examples given by the masculine film stars such as Cary Grant and Clark Gable. Men all over the world were wearing a moustache made popular by Clark Gable.
Film Icons as well as Fashion icons, Marlene Dietrich and Katherine Hepburn were very important to make popular and more acceptable for women to wear trousers. And also, Louise Brooks hairstyle was copied by women throughout the world, and is used even today.
Later, Rita Hayworth, Audrey Hepburn, Marylin Monroe and Brigitte Bardot were also part of the group of actresses that enchanted generations and generations in and out of the screens.
Nowadays this "association" between the two industries remains unflinching, with actresses on the cover of fashion magazines and walking on notorious runway shows.
Vogue US is known for their celebrity covers, for example, with Meryl Streep as their January issue cover. Many actors and actresses shine on fashion editorials for various magazines alongside with the most brilliant models of our time.
Is with this in mind that I wanted to show you some of the most recent collaborations between Fashion and Film.
After Tom Ford's unforgettable runway show for Spring 2011 with Julianne Moore and Laura Hutton walking the runway, the latest Prada menswear runway show for Fall 2012, counted with the renowned names of Tim Roth, Adrien Brody, Gary Oldman and Willem Dafoe and the younger ones Emile Hirsch and Jamiel Bell to embody with perfection the role of models.
And, on the February issue of W magazine, 19 actors and actresses are celebrated for their talents showed on their last performances, all representing characters struggling inside, in a complex web of fears and desires, on an article/editorial photographed by Mario Sorrenti called Best Performances.
