Jacobs, meanwhile, took one of those design U turns he periodically delights in, switching from last year’s Viennese Art Nouveau romance to a slickly executedand seriously funworld of gaudy, graphic minis and studded coats slashed to the upper thighs. (Note Jacobs also knew that for Vuitton’s current ad campaign, he should show all of this on someone who looked sexynamely, Gisele. It will be interesting to see if today’s faddishly fragile, delicate view culture has been pushed back into the closet by the all prevailing ladylike look. Women began to crave a mood of charm and intimacy in lieu of lewdness (witness the virginal white lace that’s everywhere these days). It has been gratifying to see that occasions that once called for a forlorn display of flesh have turned into something far less desperate. But at the same time, Hollywood’s red carpet choices of late suggest that the lady look has perhaps become a little too safestultifying in its appropriateness. Just take a cursory glance back at Golden Globes night, awash as it was in carefully wrought elegance all those actresses so neatly dressed and adorned, and any individual or interesting impulses suppressed in the name of seriousness and the respectful gesture.
