Wax On, Wax Off

Laetitia CastaTurns out, you can repeat outfits—as long as you have your own wax statue at the Musée Grévin. WWD reports that Laetitia Casta’s forthcoming statue will be dressed in an exact replica of the gown she wore to the Cannes Film Festival in 2011: a belted, blush silk chiffon number by Roberto Cavalli. The statue will debut at the Paris museum on March 31.

Tim Blanks Throws Back to McQueen’s Legendary “Joan” Show

Fire on the runway

Philipp Plein and Roberto Cavalli ruffled some front-row feathers this season with daring shows that featured fire on the runway. Naomi Campbell, who starred in the former’s flaming romp, recently told us, “To feel that heat…I’ve done a few [risky things for fashion], like being on a crane. [But this time], I was more worried about the audience: Are they going to get up and run?” Run they did not, but neither Plein’s nor Cavalli’s adventures in pyrotechnics managed to earn the same acclaim as Alexander McQueen’s fiery Fall 1998 show. The latest edition of Tim Blanks’ Throwback Thursday video series revisits McQueen’s iconic Joan of Arc-inspired outing, which culminates stunningly with Erin O’Connor writhing on the catwalk, surrounded by a grand ring of fire. Watch the video—and feel the heat—here.
