Get Ready with Amelie Zilber For The Fendi Spring Couture 2022 Show
Text: Meena Jannah
Fendi led the way in ending an eventful Haute Couture Week in Paris for this Spring/Summer season. Spirituality and mysticism filled the La Bourse as creative director Kim Jones displayed a collection that drew from Rome’s antiquity and the contrapposto of the cities statues through the draping of evening gowns shimmering, almost celestial bodies. There was also a glimpse to the future for Fendi, a future where the nearly century-old brand could exist in a far more technologically advanced future through the embrace of turning objects of the “old” into astral allure through the addition of handmade jewelry by Delfina Delettrez.
With the future in mind, Amelie Zilber, 19-year old activist, digital creator, and model, attended the breathtaking event and guided V through the process of getting ready for the day.
"It’s the big day! Today is all about Fendi Haute Couture, and I couldn’t be more excited. First and foremost, I need to get ready! I’m going for a chic up-do with a tight winged liner."
"Sofia Tilbury did my makeup for the show using all Charlotte Tilbury products. It was one of my favorite glam looks during Haute Couture week."
"Feeling extra grateful today that I get to experience new opportunities in a city that means so much to me. Being half French, Paris is my second home; a city filled with family and childhood memories I hold near and dear to my heart."
"I’m wearing a cream mini bodycon dress with an oversized white button down jacket, some '90s era boots and a white shoulder bag with a pop of color."
"I’m almost done and definitely obsessing over my boots. The gold Fendi logo in place of a standard heel is such an innovative and cool design"
"Last minute touchups before I head out. So far, so good!"
"The car awaits and it’s time to head out."
"Despite my anxiety kicking into full gear, it’s time to shine. Ready, set, pose!"
"What a whirlwind of emotions! An ode to Roman art, the Fendi Haute Couture SS 2022 collection was impeccable. Kim Jones has truly outdone himself!"
