Uptown Ladies

Oscar de la Renta dress (above & below), LaCrasia gloves
Dolce & Gabbana bodysuit, LaCrasia gloves
Nina Ricci bustier & skirt, LaCrasia gloves
Photography Mario Testino, Styling Sarajane Hoare, V Magazine #67

Admittedly it's a bit of a stretch using these images on our LINGERIE blog, but we spotted a bodysuit and a bit of fishnet in one of the pictures, so that made these images instant qualifiers!   And really, how can you not love these Mario Testino photographs?  The old-school glamour, depicting the hypothetical uptown "Bergdorf" shopper (that's us!) seems right at home in our world of luxury.  From the latest issue of V Magazine (#67) Freja Beha Erichsen and Sasha Pivovarova model opulent fashions (opera-length gloves, evening gowns and fishnet veils) and extravagant hairstyles...don't you wish you could pull off this look for just one day?
We thought we would note that all of the hosiery used in this shoot was by Falke...even though you don't see it!
