What is it about cars and women? Did you notice that all the models look so hot and sexy whether they are beside, inside or on top of the cars?

Love that LV ad. Have a nice day CC.

Erika said...

Love Elle, September 2003. Stunning!

Congratulations on the feature in Fustany, CC! You so deserve it! What a thrilling thing - and just in time for the holidays, perfect for making one's season merry and bright! :)

Rachel said...

Nice post! Cars have always been a big part of my life so I love seeing cars incorporated into pictures like this.
My favorite is definitely the shot with the Lamborghini, but really only because the car looks good. :P

Love the D&G ad at the top- and great post- never really thought about how cars are infused into fashion but they truly are! xo, Mel

Again, and again, new creative veins. Nicely nicely done. So interesting to see so many American designs as wonderful sets for so many European designers, stylists and art directors.

1930 Vogue and 2003 Elle GTO kill me.

Lovely ...

Juliet said...

I love cars. Don't know a thing about them but everytime I see a car ad I'm sold.

love this post CC!

Heather said...

These picture make me want to take a road trip. I doubt I would look as chic as these models. My clothes would be wrinkly and my hair would be reminiscent of Bridget Jones after her convertible drive.

Congrats on the Fustany Lookbook feature. =)
