Scent, more than any of the other senses, is linked to emotion—largely because olfactory receptors are directly connected to the limbic system (i.e., the same part of the brain that is associated with feelings and memory). In this short film titled Sillage that appeared on Nowness.com, directors Santiago & Mauricio explore the meaning of this perfumery term, which is used to describe the trail of a fragrance. In the video, model Sigrid Agren runs and leaps like a gazelle in vintage Rodarte, leaving glitter and flower petals in her wake. Her seductive aroma causes male models to form en masse, wildly chasing her like a pack of lions clad in black leather. “Scent is one of the most powerful and primitive of senses, as it is directly connected to our inner animal,” explained the directors. This film, designed to look like a “moving human painting,” is so much sexier than the Axe effect.
It’s a model’s job to play a character—normally, one given to her by a designer or photographer. But on Halloween, the girls (and guys) that wear the clothes call the shots. Above, we recap some of our favorites from last night—from Toni Garrn’s creepy contacts to more than one virgin in black and white (Alina Baikova and Marine Deleeuw, I’m looking at you). And the awards for sweet—not spooky—costumes go out to Maud Welzen (who transformed from catwalker to Catwoman) and Constance Jablonski (i.e., Sailor Moon). However, it was Samantha Gradoville’s over-the-top Marie Antoinette wig, guillotined neck, and risen-from-the-dead smoky eyes that took the cake here on Beauty Counter.
