Dress Obsessed

The best dress story ever from Harper's Bazaar May 2006 issue shot by Nathaniel Goldberg and styled by George Cortina

I am completely obsessed with dresses and my friend Tracy Taylor, U.S. Editor for Net-a-Porter, is too. In the most recent NaP magazine Tracy talks about her life-long love of dresses and it made me think of my favorite dress story of all time.

A few years ago when I was at Bazaar my buddy George Cortina (one of the chicest men alive) styled this amazing story to hail the return of the dress. The model Missy got stuck in a snowstorm in NY and we ended up helicoptering her to the desert. Unbelievably, George and Nathaniel shot these glorious pictures in one day. Bazaar kindly sent me these images to run here.

I wish I had bought every dress in this sitting as they are all timeless and lovely.

  2. The story is from 2006 and I had to ask Bazaar for the digitized imaged from the shoot. I will look into the credits.

  4. This post is a testiment that a well designed/proportionate dress can still look fresh and modern after 5 years!! These shoots could have been taken out of a magazine this summer! The make up in the last photo is so f@#&ing beautiful!!
