I’m in lust, again. For his Fall 2011 Couture show, Elie Saab may have left his popular Miss Havisham inspiration back in January’s showings, but everything was still exquisitely Elie. Icy blue-toned greys, aquamarines, mauves and golds were heavily embellished and intelligently crafted – a flawless collection that ended in a platinum white wedding dress for The Princess Pack. Give me beads, give me tulle, give me everything. No complaints. View Post
Next to the return of flat platforms, the feather earring comeback is set to be one of the biggest trends this Summer. What is sure to flood the Glastonbury fashion scene, this is a trend that anyone with pierced ears can indulge in. Whether they are long and worn as extensions or short and colour-sensational, the trend is super affordable and easy to DIY. I suggest you find a craft store and load up on earring hooks, glitter threads, dye, beads, and all the faux feathers that you wish. Be sure to tweet me your results!
This has got to be the most excessive-cum-expensive show of Fall/Winter 2011. Though a gargantuan Swedish iceberg was imported for his show this time last year, Karl Lagerfeld decided to volcano-ize his 525-foot runway in the Grand Palais with charcoal, black sand/stone, and smoke. An alternative take on his ‘couture jeggings’ did not stop the show from looking like the remains magnificent, post-apocalyptic, vogueing crater, though the inspiration was largely medieval. To me, the models strutted the audacious side of Chanel as rising phoenixes: roughed up androgyny, beads, quilts, exaggerated pockets, tweed and tailored grunge. See the top five looks below!

Jenny Packham was putting on the Lincoln Center glitz with Heidi Klum Juniors for her Fall/Winter 2011 masterpiece. For a 9am show, it was impossible not to feel the energy of the diamante-wrapped gowns and crystallized pieces. Every item was a ‘showstopper’, a ‘red carpet moment‘, and/or ‘I’ll wear whatever she’s wearing’. Prepare for tulle, beads, and fabulosity. See the top five looks below! View Post
“Clean, classic, mellow, groovy! For Spring 2011, Tracy Reese is inspired by the dream of glamorous travel and immersing one’s self in a new and exotic environment.”
Tracy Reese delivers time and time again with marvelous pieces that are fun and flirty, yet also chic and polished. At yesterday’s New York Fashion Week show, it became clear she understands how to flatter the feminine figure, using silks that move elegantly with the body. She kept pieces girly but added a funky ’70s flair with embellishments like delicate cutouts, flirty flower appliqués, perforated lace, jewels, beads, bows, and adorable flutter sleeves. Accessories highlights were jewelry by Shauna Neely and Highline United for Tracey Reese wedge sandals in funky prints. The icing on top of her gorgeous cake was a perforated trench dress with matching floppy hat. View Post
