Brief Encounter – Vogue February 2010

Sean Combs/Diddy has appeared in Vogue’s February 2010 issue alongside supermodel Natalia Vodianova in an editorial entitled Brief Encounter, shot by Annie Leibovitz and styled by Grace Coddington. Natalia and Diddy were outfitted by the likes of Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren, Salvatore Ferragamo, Christian Louboutin, Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior. Read the full article from Vogue here.

Diddy’s next studio album, due out in April, is entitled Last Train To Paris. Coincidence?

Hot Ticket
With a mood of gathering mystery—and clothes with a mid-century-movieland mystique—the romance is set for departure. Chanel tweed suit dress. Ralph Lauren Blue Label trench (on suitcase). Christian Louboutin slingbacks. On Diddy: Tom Ford coat and suit. Ermenegildo Zegna tie. Shot at New Jersey Transit Hoboken Station.

Strangers on a Train
The couple trade glances. Her look has all the hallmarks of MGM-siren glamour: pencil skirt (check!), narrow belt (check!), Lana Turner sweater (check!). Rochas silk sweater, skirt , and belt.

The Express Track
“Is this seat taken?” and “I’m traveling alone”—before the next station, an unexpected exchange of confidences. Giambattista Valli short-sleeved gray jacket and matching skirt. Hermès bag.

An Affair to Remember
Narrow corridors and incendiary screen chemistry lead speedily to first-class sleeping compartments. She’s dressed for a private party in soft-pink washed satin. Nina Ricci dress. On Diddy: Salvatore Ferragamo shirt. Louis Vuitton trousers.

Steamy
Looking absolutely like a World War II heroine—Greer Garson, say—Natalia clings to her star-crossed lover. Christian Dior pale-pink silk-crepe belted jacket with front peplum and tulip skirt. Nina Ricci leather ankle boots.

I’ll Be Seeing You
In the closing shot, she wears a trench coat – icon of tearful cinematic goodbyes since Bogie said, “Here’s looking at you, kid,” to Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca. Nina Ricci cotton trench.

It seems Ralph Lauren’s take on the recession involves some neat references to the 1930s Depression, and I’m not complaining.

Paperboy caps, worn denim baggies, ladies in pinstriped three-pieces and plus fours… ring-a-ding-ding!! There were also a few pretty florals, if you care to look.
