Judith takes the Runway

Once again, the Apocryphal story of an ancient Israelite that inspired a symbolist painter in turn-of-the century Austria has inspired a contemporary fashion designer to create a gilded gown to carry on the tale of Judith.

Judith (2013) L’Wren Scott

L’Wren Scott is an American fashion designer, costume designer, stylist and model who began her life as Luann Bambrough in Utah. Scott’s first collection was “Little Black Dress,” launched in 2006. The collection presented an array of black dresses, including her now famous Headmistress dress worn by Madonna. Other famous repeat clients include Sarah Jessica Parker, Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Penélope Cruz, Naomi Campbell, Reese Witherspoon, Christina Hendricks, Jennifer Lopez, Sandra Bullock, Uma Thurman, Oprah Winfrey and Michelle Obama. Mick Jagger would wear her clothing but seems to prefer to put the squeeze on Scott while she is wearing it.

For London Fashion Week 2013, Scott pulled out a piece of history to satisfy a whim.

“I’m having a gold moment,” L’Wren declared at a fitting a couple of weeks ago. She’d been researching the relationship between the Austrian Secessionist artist Gustav Klimt and Adele Bloch-Bauer, whose portrait he painted. “He kept applying more and more gold because he didn’t want to finish the painting. She was married. I think people figured out what was going on in the end!” (1)

just a little something to slip into when your Rolling Stone says “let’s spend the night together”?

Edit: March 17, 2014 – L’Wren Scott dies of an apparent suicide. Gone too soon.
