It’s fashion season once again and “Metro” is giving everyone an exclusive access to the hottest shows and trends as seen in this year’s Spring/Summer 2012 collections this month.
From the runways of Paris, Milan, New York, London, and Manila, this issue looks at the trends that tickled fashion’s fancy all season long in Metro’s seasonal Trend Report. “Metro” also dive into this month’s hottest trend—the life aquatic. See how this underwater fascination was translated on the runways of fashion’s biggest names, which include Givenchy, Chanel, and Alexander McQueen.
Fashion meets film as “Metro” pays homage to thought-provoking films, this month’s cover and cover story was inspired by the 1974 movie adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. Anne Curtis plays the covetable role of Daisy Buchanan alongside two male models as her co-stars. Decked from head to toe in Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection in milky pastels and plastic floral appliqués, Anne fits the role of Daisy to a tee.
”Metro” also looks toward a reinterpretation of the award-winning documentary Grey Garden in one of our fashion editorials. Harking back to the era of the Kennedys and pill box hats, these pages will show you how to rock that vintage 1950s look without looking dated. In keeping with the aquatic theme, the fashion editorial “Creatures of Myth” interprets the trend with anemone-like accessories and loose, flowing chiffon pieces. As the magazine welcomes the summer months, it will also give everyone a rundown of all the essential resort pieces and accessories to stand out in the crowd, no matter where in the world you are.
Beauty junkies can go backstage with “Metro,” as this issue also checks out the hottest beauty trends—from the eyes, lips, hair and even the skin, it will show what looks are in for the coming months. The beauty editorial “In Too Deep” zeroes in on bright pops of color on the lids and lips that won’t drown out, even underwater. Plus, don’t miss the countdown of the most covetable products to keep face glowing and looking healthy even under intense heat.
As important as the show itself, a fashion show’s front row is still the place to be no matter what city you’re in, and we give you an exclusive look at the who’s who of our favorite shows. But just as fashion made headlines, so were some of this year’s hottest movies, actors, and actresses. As the magazine rings in the summer months, “Metro” also celebrates awards season with a look back at the most memorable red carpet gowns and unforgettable winning moments from Hollywood’s A-list actresses.
