In the world of fashion one thing is certain, it changes. Season by season we see fresh new faces along with new cuts, silhouettes, colors, designs, and trends. How is it then that certain trends, such as the ’70s trend of bell bottoms sees its way back in or for example, the ever so popular sequined look of the ’60s and ’70s? It’s simple. Inspiration.

A trend starts with a seed of inspiration and today’s inspiration comes from an Italian Vogue editorial, specifically Vogue Italia March 2000, shot by Steven Meisel with model Hannelore Knuts.

Here are two different looks from 200o that can easily be reworked today, in 2011.
