Even great minds draw inspiration from the outside world, and other people play a major role in the process of forming ideas. About the most famous creators and their muses.
“A woman (or a man) who makes others want to live like her can be considered a muse,” says Marc Jacobs. A striking individuality and a sense of style - this is what designers cannot do without, this is what no collection can be created without. Even great minds draw inspiration from the outside world, and people play the main role in the process of forming ideas, who stimulate designers to be creative. About the most famous creators and their muses.
Baptiste Giabiconi and Karl Lagerfeld
Just 2 years ago, this young man worked at the Marseilles aircraft design plant, and during lunch breaks he was shaking his muscles at the local gym. Batista was noticed by an agent and offered to try himself in the modeling business, after which the young man caught the eye of Karl Lagerfeld. "Armed" with eyelashes and muscles, Giabiconi drove the great Kaiser into such excitement that he immediately declared him his muse and put him on the podium in the models.com ranking. Since then, Baptiste has been more than just a leading fashion model for Chanel, an object of envy and crooked smiles.
Audrey Hepburn and Hubert Givenchy
When she first opened the doors to his workshop, she was 24. "All luminous and radiant - in the physical and spiritual sense of the word," - recalls Audrey, Givenchy director Dreda Mil.
Pete Doherty and Edie Slimane
The Babyshambles leader and the designer became friends at the beginning of 2000 at one of the spontaneous, like a stormy ocean, rock concerts, where Eddie took out of habit. Standing backstage, he could not take his eyes off the action unfolding before his eyes. And when the soloist jumped onto the stage - a pale black-haired clown in a bowler hat, the hand of the eminent designer reached by itself to the camera. All in beaded drops of sweat, ripping off his shirt, capricious and wayward on stage and squeezed out like a lemon, smoking tiredly, smiling innocently off the stage - this is how Pete Doherty appeared before Edie Slimane in those immemorial minutes.
Kate Moss and Calvin Klein
“The first time Kelvin saw her, she was gorgeous,” said CK creative director Francisco Costa. It's hard to believe now that Moss wasn't cast as the nude teenage girl in the 1992 Obsession ad. Klein's initial choice fell on the French actress and singer Vanessa Paradis. However, upon meeting Kate, he realized that he would only be filming her. Klein was right.
Soon, the image of slender Kate took the minds of all the leaders of the fashion world, and Klein himself - the honorable place of the main promoter of anorexia, pedophilia and heroin chic. However, this did not bother either the designer or the model.
Catherine Deneuve and Yves Saint Laurent
The two did not meet on the set of Belle de Jour, as is commonly believed. Their acquaintance happened at the very moment when Deneuve needed a dress for a visit to the UK. In a white long dress from Laurent from his "Russian collection" Catherine and appeared before the queen. It’s then she begs Laurent to dress her from head to toe for her new film, Beauty of the Day. After that, her naked body in the frame will compete with the beauty of the outfits he created. “Outfits designed for a woman with a dual life,” says Katrin. “Outfits designed for women like Catherine,” critics will say.
“My best friend,” the leading French actress will say at the funeral of the greatest designer of all time. Their lifelong friendship stretched over 43 years.
