Saint Joan of Arc, more like the Saint of pioneering metal into the silhouettes of female fashion I'd say. Regardless of my very shallow and aesthetically focused tone, this tragic 19 year old French glitterati you could undoubtedly say influenced female fashion. From the kick ass female empowerment themes to the innovative use of metal’s in clothing, her influence can be felt in our 90’s retro chain mail skirts to the D&G Dress gaga defines her lady lumps in.
For this little blog entry, there is a selection of artwork, movie stills and the catwalk creations all with a little Joan in mind. The single metal torso is by D&G, whilst the others are by the legendary Jean Paul Gaultier.
