Elle UK – “Tuxedo Rules”

Women have been donning tuxedos since 1966 when Yves Saint Laurent first created the Le Smoking tuxedo suit. Since then ladies have given their little black dresses a break and opted for something androgynous when going out. This editorial from Elle UK is titled “Tuxedo Rules” and it features Heidi Mount in tuxedos that are sexy, chic, and a good alternative to dresses when painting the town red. The American model is styled by Joanne Blades in pieces from Maison Martin Margiela, Alexander McQueen, Salvatore Ferragamo and many others. The images were lensed by British photographer David Slijper for Elle UK’s December 2012 issue.
