David Sims shot Tobey Maguire for the Prada fall 2011 campaign, in what can only be described as a surprising choice by Prada's marketing team (i've never really seen him linked to the fashion industry).
Surprising, perhaps, but a great choice nonetheless.
I don't think I had heard anything about Tobey since his Spiderman days, but this is a great 'comeback' so to speak.
The shots are beautiful..the stylist obviously did an amazing job, but I think the actor's transformation from the shy, bespectacled Peter Parker to the elegant and flawless model seen here can, in larger part, be attributed to David Sims' immense talent.
I had never thought of Tobey Maguire as a very handsome man but these shots most definitely changed my mind.
The most talented individuals in the fashion industry gathered this Monday to honour those whose genius went above and beyond this past year.
I was delighted that Phoebe Philo won the International award for Celine. I have admired her work for a very long time and, now that I think about it, I am almost sure her collections for Chloe are what instigated my interest in fashion.
Prabal Gurung was the recipient of the Swarovski Award for womenswear...another well deserved honour in my opinion :)
(Other winners included Marc Jacobs and Alexander Wang)
Jason Wu and Karlie Kloss in a dress by the designer
Loved the boldness yet simplicity of the dress

Amazing draping and shoulder detail
I must admit the celebrity stylists were not on par with the night's nominees.
I arrived in London a few days ago and discovered on the flight over, while skimming through the glossy pages of one of the many fashion magazine I bought to distract myself, that Prabal Gurung has done a small collaboration with J.Crew.
I have been dying for his tuxedo pants with ribbon detail at the ankle for ages, ever since his spring 2010 collection actually. Sadly, the $1000+ price tag was slightly out of my budget to say the least.
Which is why I was ecstatic when I came upon a pair of these amazing pantaloons while browsing the collection!
Here is the Fit-to-be-tied pant
Great design for the modest price of $198!
Unfortunately they do not come in the gorgeous electric blue featured in Prabal's original design, but I will still make sure that trying on these trousers will be one of my top priorities when I get back to New York :)
