The quarantine has shown us all that it does one good to bring up beautiful memories. Whether it’s old Hitchcook movies or dusty photo albums, some people need to travel back in time to the 80s-90s. At least fashionably, like Berlin drag queen Chloe Waldorf. Deutsch VOGUE, together with hair & make-up artist Andreas BERNHARDT c/o BASICS.BERLIN and photographer Karlo Hecimovic, captured exactly this vibe. What part Thierry Mugler has contributed to it, you can read online in the interview by Hella Schneider.
Vogue: “For years, Berlin drag queen Chloe Waldorf has been collecting vintage designs from Thierry Mugler – and has not only developed her aesthetic with them but has also established an impressive archive. For VOGUE, she staged herself in several looks by Thierry Mugler from the 1980s and 90s.”
“His work and vision have been so formative for me that a large part of my drag appearance is a kind of love letter to him.” the celebrated Berlin Drag Artista/ Visual Artist, Chloe Waldorf, tells us in an interview.
And Vogue adds : “In her looks, she replicates the exaggerated elegance, the darkness, the drama, the momentousness, the glamour, the dangerous expressiveness – in other words: All of the hallmarks of Thierry Mugler, as if she had just appeared in one of his shows. For Chloe Waldorf, they are in fact “Dreams like from another world” – and who doesn’t like to escape reality once in a while?” Read the complete interview online. The motifs were photographed by Karlo Hecimovic. GoSee : vogue.de/mode//chloe-waldorf-drag-queen-archiv-thierry-mugler
