I have a soft spot for anything Schiaparelli, the designs make my heart race and the creativity of its creative director Daniel Roseberry makes me hope in a way of creating fashion less about consumerism.
I know it is a bit utopian because goods are made to be purchased and you would want a possible client to be able to buy what you sell, but I desperately wish for brands so rooted in Surrealism and the power of imagination to still be able to live in a bubble where the creative director’s expression is the propelling force.
That being said, let’s focus on what Tessa Lynne Thompson wore to this year’s Vanity Fair Party.
Tessa‘s magnificent dress was a Schiaparelli ensemble from the Spring 2022 Couture collection, paired with black Giambattista Valli satin platform pumps from the Spring-Summer 2018 collection.
According to the maison, the jacket was in ivory canvas cotton, fitted at the waist with a corset, with a scarf collar in black velvet with exaggerated proportions and iconic Schiaparelli Apollo Versailles embroidery with white sequins and Swarovski rhinestones. She also wore pleated bermuda shorts in textured wool crepe edged with contrasting ivory canvas bias.
Her accessories complimented the eccentricity of the outfit, starting from gold Misho fingernail rings, gold stackable rings, a gold cuff and ending with gold diamond hoops.
Her makeup artist Allan Avendaño opted for a soft graphic double eyeliner while her hair was sleeked back by Lacy Redway to let the exaggerated black collar be the star.
Manicurist Stephanie Stone matched the gold accents of her jewelry by decorating Thompson‘s nails with gold leaves.
Tessa‘s personal analog camera served as a bag.
