Heavy Weight Champion – Fall 2011 Balmain Dress

12/04/2011, Anja Rubik, Balmain, Fall Winter 2011, Fashion and Style

There’s a reason why a Balmain dress is not for the faint of heart or wallet for that matter. I’m going through the photos I took at the fall winter 2011 Balmain show and this dress, worn by Anja Rubik, caught my eye. I can’t get over the amount of work involved! Just look at the sheer number of sequins, beads, crystals and embellishments.

Anja Rubik for Vogue Germany September 2009

How funny. I was just admiring this Gucci video the other day…

lo and behold the smart folks over at German Vogue dropped the A-bomb on me for their September issue: MISS ANJA RUBIK!

Anja Rubik for Vogue Germany, Vogue Deutsch, September 2009 Cover

How stunning is she? I *love* Anja. I’ve seen many, many photos and videos of her over the years and that woman is nothing but a thoroughbred. She’s been on the game for quite some time now and she’s piling up them ad campaigns and covers like no other.

Danke schön Vogue Deutsch for the lovely cover!

Anja Rubik for Vogue Paris June/July 2009

The much-awaited and highly-anticipated Vogue Paris cover featuring Anja Rubik is finally here. Although veteran Anja’s been around the fashion circuit for ages, it’s her first French Vogue cover.

Anja Rubik for Vogue Paris Magazine Cover, June/July 2009 issue

Dutch duo Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin took the photo.

I’m not a big fan of studio shots on the covers of magazines but the world is going through a recession so it’s quite understable why more and more mags go through that route.

As much as I adore Carine Roitfeld and Vogue Paris, I feel this cover was a let down.

In any case, good job on Anja for this well-deserved cover. It’s about time!
