Don't cry for me Argentina! is the famous song from "Evita," Andrew Lloyd Weber's musical that incarnates one of the most enigmatic argentinian woman.
Evita was Argentina's first lady and a fighter for equality for all of her compatriots, during her husband's mandate she was widely critized for her excesive use of french haute-couture, some historians say she did this to be more respected in certain circles of power so that she could help her descamisados, others say that it was largely dew to her rampant populism and hipocrecy.
But, no one can deny her incredible taste, Christian Dior once said that the only queen that he dressed was Eva Duarte de Peron.
Now, Argentinian women have a new rol on the international fashion stage, models raised on milanesas and mate are causing a new trend in fashion. First were the voluptuous Brazilians with their curves and strog stomp, then the Russians and Eastern Europeans with their strong facial features and cheek bones towards heaven, now the Dutch with their more athletic feel, and according to Models.com it seems that the next wave in models is going to be from the Argentine Republic with innocent faces and leans, athletic bodies.
These are some of the Argentinians causing a stir during the recent fashion seans F/W 2010.
