At Moschino - My shoot-out w/ Gilles Bensimon

If you notice, Gilles has a grey pencil in his breast pocket. I asked him why and he said because it is like the weather - grey and cloudy.

Incredible. I had no idea Gilles Bensimon was so old. His work with Elle magazine has always been the best. No one uses sunlight like Gilles.

begs the question ... what was in your breast pocket?

peace & harmony,

I read your posts regularly and I have a small question. Isn't it the actress Indira Varma in the yellow dress in your post on on september 9th ? I love her, she's extremely graceful...

i think he loos great - love the colour of the jacket and the stripe texture in the shirt - nice cuff showing to.

loved your pics on i think its always interesting to see how the audience dress reflects the show they are at really noticed the difference from marni to moschino. Also though tALT looked great he is such a character on he could get away with the purple jacket which is all the more remarkable cause he is like 7' - love it

Very elegant suit - I hope you were wearing one to match...

Love him.

Your shots are keeping me going... most of the shows so far have been such a let down!

Keep up the good work!

"virtual people watching" thats perfect!


Blogger Butch said ... (7:46 AM) : 

One can see, from even an abbreviated glimpse, that the jacket's tops....

Hello, Gilles has been shooting for Elle since the 70s or something. I'm just happy he's still around and still loving it. My previous PR girl is now his assistant and says the best things about him.
But more importantly, where are those Prada pics you promised?


Blogger TheFegel said ... (9:19 AM) : 

Is the suit grey or brown?


Blogger Jonathon Morgan said ... (9:48 AM) : 

The pencil is an incredible touch. Even if it was an accident. Even if he was lying and made up right there on the spot the whole "grey weather" business, it's still great.

But the best part is, he's probably telling the truth.


Blogger Alison Santighian said ... (10:22 AM) : 

Delightful. Positively delightful.


Blogger Gidget Bananas said ... (10:49 AM) : 

Ooooh, Gile's jacket is sharp!


Blogger EMNH said ... (2:09 PM) : 

You have a photo of Gilles Bensimon taking a photo of You. Lucky Duck...Gilles is one of my favorite fashion photographers...he is Elle magazine.


Blogger 4chair said ... (2:49 PM) : 

Tre' poetic.


Blogger Murph said ... (3:05 PM) : 

Great shot, nice focus and d.o.f. Wonder what camera Gilles is using there? Also, he looks great--the jacket is superb and the cuffs on the shirt (seersucker?) are killer.


Blogger positively the same dame said ... (3:19 PM) : 

i have no idea why this thought popped into my head, but he looks like must smell wonderful. what a great face -- the eyes. by the way, sart, the last time i tried to comment the gods made me sign up for a blog before they would allow me to post which, as you can see, i did, but once again i have no idea why.


Blogger Resplendato said ... (4:31 PM) : 

Gilles and Regis P. changed the way fashion magazines were printed...they revolutionized color separations and matched colors with such precision.


Blogger Crash said ... (5:14 PM) : 

Great perspective! Wonder what camera he is using? Especially the brown leather strap attached to it...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:20 AM) : 

it's perfect. and i love the detail - the leather lace...


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (9:14 AM) : 

Man, he looks good.

His role at Elle shows how photographers can truly be appreciated for their 'view'. I love his signature 'on the street' shoots.

Mind you, in recent times have felt that Gilles could perhaps use a few photographers in Elle who don't literally copy his own style. I appreciate that he uses a range of photographers so we get different interpretations of fashion and beauty. However a carbon copy of Gilles' style is not original.


Blogger the dame said ... (9:42 AM) : 

That is perfect. I love that he said that.

When someone responds so well to a question or takes the time to think about such a funny little detail, it's like a little gift. I find a great deal of joy in perfect details.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:25 AM) : 

it looks really good on him. love the colors, and the weather idea =)

I'd be cool to see the pic he took of u, taking one of him, lol.


Blogger Alba said ... (1:41 AM) : 

wonderful shot.

does anyone know what camera he is holding?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:01 AM) : 

i love


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:46 PM) : 

Nice shot!

The camera looks like a Ricoh GR.



Blogger JT said ... (3:16 PM) :
