The Lust List: ’50s Elegance

Side of Style

I’m not a big Katherine Heigl fan, nor do I often swoon so much over Harper’s Bazaar fashion spreads (which sometimes, let’s face it, are rather ridiculous. I mean, would you really wear those $5,000 seven-inch, light-up, psychedelic heels with $3,000 faux-leather pants?)

I digress. The June issue spread featuring Ms. Heigl had me drooling. (June. I know. I’m a little behind on my magazines this summer.) No lie: I would pack up my apartment, sleep on a friend’s couch, and forfeit a few month’s rent to have one of these dresses.

It wasn’t just the one-off, either. Every single thing they clothed her in was pure Mad Men elegance. Who on earth is the stylist? And can I please keep them in my pocket for the rest of my days?

Stay back, dog! That’s Prada she’s wearing!

A wasp-waisted Louis Vuitton belted dress. And look at those shoes! I die …

And finally, in preparing for winter, I promise to forfeit all fall shopping/dining/partying just to have this Lanvin coat. It is perfection.
