How elegant is this? I asked what had happened to opera gloves in my first post and this looks like the perfect way to reinvent them. Harriet Quick is Vogue's Fashion Features Director and here she stands out as a beacon of le bon ton. This photo comes from an article in this April's issue of British Vogue contrasting the 'Alt[ernative] Chic' chicks with the 'gilded priestesses of high chic'.
"High chic is a step beyond just looking pulled together: it's about pulling back, too. The rule of thumb is to dress simply. Let statement shoes or jewellery - and a glossy beauty regime - do all the work. Nothing short of perfection will do." Hmmm.
