Fashion historian revealed the meaning of Kate Moss' outfit at a meeting in the case of Heard and Depp
Fashion historian Kate Strasdin of Falmouth University said that Kate Moss's look defied the traditional dress code in courtrooms. It is reported by The Guardian.
Kate Moss, the ex-girlfriend of Johnny Depp, was connected via video link for three minutes during hearings about domestic violence in the actor's marriage and his ex-wife Amber Heard . The model chose a white polka-dot blouse with a bow and a fitted black jacket to appear in court. According to the fashion historian, this outfit can be called typical for formal events, but there are many hidden nuances in it.
"Historically, such a look is associated with women who begin to invade men's space and challenge traditional dress codes," says fashion expert Keith Strasdin of Falmouth University.
Muscular suits paired with silk blouses were popularized in the 1960s by Coco Chanel. Designer Yves Saint Laurent resorted to the same stylization when he created the first women's tuxedo in 1966. Subsequently, Le Smoking became associated with the feminist movement in fashion. Blouses with bows have become one of the main elements of Margaret Thatcher's wardrobe. According to rumors, she called them "softening and beautiful" in combination with a jacket.
The image of Kate Moss at the meeting, according to Kate Strasdin, was more reminiscent of not Thatcher's outfit but Le Smoking. "She almost recreated that iconic 1966 Helmut Newton look," says Strasdin.
Earlier, The Duchess of Sussex was criticized for defiantly visiting a memorial to the victims of a Texas school shooting. On May 26, Meghan Markle laid flowers at the memorial for the shooting victims that took place the day before at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas. As a result of the shooting, 19 students and two teachers were killed, and the culprit was 18-year-old resident Salvador Romas, who killed his grandmother the day before.
