There haven’t been few instances when we’ve watched an artist walking the red carpet or posing for a photoshoot wearing a dress or an accessory that we instantly fall in love with or consider super artistic. We give our congratulations to the fashion designer who created that dress, but we don’t realize is the source of his/her creativity. It is highly possible that fashion designers go to art galleries and buy books with the work of famous artists, so that they can get inspired by their amazing work. After all, fashion is a type of art, but only when it aims to the pleasure of the people and not their discomfort.
Lady Gaga’s custom made Versace gown is almost exactly the same with ”Isabella Stewart Gardner” by painter John Singer Sargent.
Alexander McQueen was inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s painting and Jessica Chanstain was the lucky woman to wear his creation.
This time Gaga took upon a Salvador Dali kind of look and who can deny the perfection of it?
Queen Vistoria in her Coronation Robes looks a lot like Rihanna’s famous Met Gala dress.
Grand Gala by Domergue inspired clothing brand Pencey Standard to create a unique themed female tux.
Another painting by Salvador Dali inspired Maison Margiela for the brand’s autumn/winter collection.
In this case, it seems that the people conducting this photoshoot with Nicole Kidman were aiming to recreate John Singer Sargent’s painting.
This is another time that Maison Margiela took inspiration from Salvador Dali’s work, making us think that this is a pattern that they usually follow.
Sometimes fashion does not aim to the everyday people and those who are looking to buy a dress to wear. Sometimes fashion wants to be artful and a brand to show its vision and goal in what they do. Clothes are not just for wearing. They also are pieces of art that need our attention.
