French Elle features famous fashion designers in tribute to Almodovar

In the latest issue of French Elle dedicated to cinema and coinciding with the opening of the Cannes Film Festival, I couldn’t help but notice a great Almodovar-inspired fashion feature shot by lensman Jason Schmidt.   The magazine got star fashion designers and fashion wordl celebs to reenact famous scenes of Pedro Almodóvar’s most reknown films.  Sonia Rykiel and her daugter Nathalie appear as the main protagonists of 1988’s “Mujeres al borde de un ataque de nervios” (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown in English) for instance. 

The former YSL muses, Loulou de la Falaise and Betty Catroux, are also featured together with designer Bruno Frisoni in a nod to “Tacones lejanos” (High heels in English). Karl Lagarfeld and Jean-Paul Gaultier also have cameos in this six-page hommage to the Spanish director.

Have a look at the Jason Schmidt photographs: ELLE à la mode d’Almodovar.
