Masquerade

Nov 24, 2010

My school dance theme has been declared, and it is a masquerade ball. Immediately, I thought of the Vogue Paris 90th Anniversary Ball photographs I saw all over the fashion blogosphere. My mind is still empty of ideas of what to wear, so I thought I would put together a Masquerade Ball Inspiration Compilation. While searching for the best pictures and sources I could find, I realized that masquerades have really made an influence on the fashion world. Although the trend is not too evident now, I believe it will make a comeback-starting with the Lanvin x H 'n M collection, which had a beautiful masquerade vibe through the clothes. 
Any ideas of what I should wear? And what to you think of masquerade style?

  6. OMG - so gorgeous! Especially love the stark contrast in the '97 spread.

    As you're a fashion girl, I would recommend you make use of lots of vivid colours and ornamentation in your ensemble - feather it up!

  7. My 13 year old daughter had a masquerade at her school too (must be some hip teachers out there)! We bought the most beautiful feather masks at the DOLLAR STORE - hello!!! Have fun!
