High Vintage Style in Morocco 

We Are United: Opulent Arabesque

I was given ‘The Andy Warhol Diaries’ for Christmas and, although I’d read it before, I’m definitely devouring it all over again. It’s part guilty pleasure and part bedtime Valium.

I love the way Andy muses about beauty and fills his life with ‘the gorgeous people’.

Which is a little like my feelings towards photographer Ellen Von Unwerth. Everything she shoots, in my eyes, is beautiful. Including this latest editorial for Harper’s Bazaar Arabia.

Outfitted in opulent 50’s inspired fashion, the styling by Katie Trotter is bang on. These beauties rock the kasbah in headscarves, turbans, ankle socks, ruffles, leopard print, winged eyeliner and BIG hair. Oh yessssssy.

And who can resist the ancient arabesque backdrop of the Royal Mansour hotel in Marrakesh! Who could?!
