The inexhaustible influence of bullfighting and flamenco fashion (II)


National and international stars surrender to our most folk and original fashion

If last week we focused on the big fashion brands and their purely Spanish-inspired collections, we do this in the best models and shop windows they can have: celebrities.

Madonna and her bullfighting style penultimate tour

The ‘Queen of Pop’, one of the most important singers in our history, surprised the entire world with the costumes chosen for her penultimate tour, ‘Rebel Tour’, in 2015. In the Grammy awards of that year she appeared dressed in a kind of bullfighter light dress, with a Givenchy design, and acted with other lighting designs, commissioned to a bullfighting tailor’s shop in Zaragoza exclusively and tailored for her theme ‘Living for love’.

The artist walked the aesthetics of the arena between September 2015 and March 2016, in a total of 82 concerts between America, Europe, Asia and Oceania.

Sarah Jessica Parker’s in lights dress famous cover

The first issue of S Moda magazine may be one of the most remembered covers of the recent kiosk. In October 2011, the newspaper El País launched this publication aimed primarily at the female audience and for that it had actress Sarah Jessica Parker (the immortal Carrie Bradshaw of ‘Sex in New York’). But she did it in a very special way, with a jacket from the bullfighting tailor Daniel Roqueta (the same one who would later dress Madonna). In the interior report it also appears with comb and mantlet, Córdoba hat and even covered with a wonderful cape from Master Nati.

The actress showed her admiration for the beauty and artisan work of each of the pieces and claimed to live her most ‘bullfighting moment’ in the session.

The flamenco mood of the premiere of ‘Arde Madrid’

The series by Paco León premiered a year ago and the styles of the protagonists and attendees was a true tribute to the most folkloric aesthetic of our country. Inspired by the years that actress Ava Gardner spent in Spain, shows the history of the time, the 60s. Some guests such as Hiba Abouk, Melody (who also plays Carmen Sevilla in the series) or Eduardo Casanova, came dressed in her more ‘cañí’ (typical Spanish) version.

Uma Thurman and the Calendario Campari

The Italian house chose the movie star Uma Thurman to star in its 2014 edition. Through the twelve months of the year, the actress toured major international celebrations, mainly dressed in red by great designers. The month of May was dedicated to the April Fair in Seville and Thurman wore a spectacular design by our countrywoman Vicky Martín Berrocal. The result of the image was wonderful.

Katy Perry’s red carpet

For the amfAR gala in Cannes in 2016, the American singer chose an amazing dress from the New York firm Marchesa. The design could have walked quietly through the Real fairground of Seville, as it was the closest thing to a flamenca costume. In fact, the image of the singer reminds us a lot of the WhatsApp flamenca, don’t you think? 🙂

The Andalusian inspiration was evident in the red model, fitted and full of flowers, which served as hundreds of ruffles on sleeves and tail. The hairstyle and makeup gave the final touch.

The Infanta Elena ‘paseíllo’ at the wedding of Victoria of Sweden

Perhaps it is the most remembered look of Elena de Borbón, and it is that her dress by Lorenzo Caprile at Victoria of Sweden’s wedding made it very clear who she represented. In pink cape, it was formed by a strapless dress and a Goyesque jacket that was a real jewel. She finished off with typical ornaments in her elegant hairstyle.
