Last night, Odette Yustman – or her stylist – put together a red carpet look worth gushing over. This stunning black Versus Fall/Winter 2011 dress knocked ’em out at yesterday’s “Us Weekly Hot Hollywood Party” in Los Angeles. The sexy off-the-shoulder cocktail dress boasted a sheer bodice and was decorated with silver glitter details that should be an enforced LBD requirement.
Halston was repping the bare summer skin and all the ways you can show it. Although Halston’s designer, Marios Schwab, departed from disco-fever wear last season, the iconic seventies brand’s signature sentiment was back for Spring 2011 this past Monday at New York Fashion Week.
Split into all black, white, camel, coral, nude, and sequined sets, the overarching theme of the collection was body-conscious clothing that showed flashes of bare skin, thanks to peek-a-boo cutouts and one-shoulder silhouettes. There were unexpected space-age prints, while a series of fluid jersey dresses in solid colors came alive with involved drapes and folds that made them our runaway favorites. The pro piece was a strapless ivory-pink cocktail dress with dramatic drapes and folds. View Post
Busy CFDA President and international glamazon Diane von Furstenberg‘s collection for New York Fashion Week has been at the top of my Show Stream List for months. After seeing a show in Paris about dancer Isadora Duncan, she decided her collection would be inspired by “goddesses”. From head to toe, we were seeing lots of vintage-looking round sunglasses, large carryall totes in bold geometric prints, chic fanny packs (no, really), and strappy heels. The wrap dresses were perfect, as you’d expect.
While the bright seperates will sell like hot cakes, my favourite piece was a lovely drop-waist cocktail dress with crystal embroidery. Diane happily bounced down the runway with her new creative director Yvan Mispelaere for her final bow, solidifying a great arrangement between the two. It was varied and vivacious, keeping true to her legacy. View Post
