E L S A . Elsa Benitez, the Mexican beauty who took fashion by storm in the mid 90s, was one of the industries most in demand. She of course was muse to Dolce and Gabanna, nabbing their Fall 1996 campaign ( shared with Shirley Mallmann and shot by Meisel ), going on to score the following Spring campaign and becoming the face of their signature scent and underwear lines. Like most models, she was made super through the legendary model maker, Steven Meisel, who, in 1996, booked her for three consecutive covers of Vogue Italia, making her a hot commodity. Editorials for all the major glossies followed ( often cast in swimwear editorials, it's no wonder she became a favourite of Sports illustrated and Victoria's Secret as well ), along with extensive runway appearances for top designers and more campaigns for the likes of Versace, Valentino, Covergirl amongst many more. My first memory of Elsa would have to be from a collections editorial in US Vogue, July 1996. She was part of a new breed of Supers, the "Minimillists", a group which included Esther de Jong, Kylie Bax and Georgina Grenville. Her beauty was exotically flawless, and refreshing, especially with so much dominance of the "Blondes" ( Nadja, Claudia, Karen ). Going on to become a TV Host she still pops up from time to time, still as gorgeous as ever! #modelmondays#elsabenitez#supermodels#dolceandgabbana#versace#valentino#vogue#elle#harpersbazaar#stevenmeisel#patmcgrath#cracecoddington#roberterdmann#mexican#blogger#fashionblogger#the_bearded_blogger_#the_bearded_blogger_modelmondays
Moi qui suis rarement en jupe, je crois ne mettre que ca en ce moment.
Et finalement j'aime assez. Surtout que quand il fait chaud c'est plutôt agréable.
Comme c'est le cas de la jupe portefeuille que je vous présente sur le blog !
J'espère que ce look vous plaira. J'attends tous vos petits commentaires !!!
I spent the day in Long Beach with my parents and a family friend. I actually fell in love with the area. It was my first time and it was so beautiful. I wish it was closer. Of course i didn't realize we were going to Long Beach until we were in the car and on our way there after Church. I definitely would've dressed differently. It was so hot and a summery outfit was a lot more called for. But anyway, it was a beautiful day. How was your day?
Wishing all my beautiful muslim friends and followers a happy eid. May love, happiness and lots of blessings always surround you and your families.
