Or should I say Septiembre? Whatever language I say it in, this >Vogue Mexico cover is definitely my favourite of September 2011 (though it’s actually part of a three page gatefold). Fashion stylist Sarah Gore Reeves put top model Isabeli Fontana in one of my favourite dresses from Louis Vuitton‘s Fall/Winter 2011 collection. The killer compilation of talent was further loaded by Marcin Tyszka on lens and John Paul Tran on art direction.
My heart suffered a beautiful death while viewing Elie Saab (also known as the faultless epitome of Parisian chic). The peplum-heavy Fall/Winter 2011 collection featured updated Belle du Jour showpieces, enough red-carpet variety to singularly satisfy E!’s Fashion Police, and a colour palette I would emphatically live in (aubergine dresses that could trigger a panic attack). Paying special attention to the deep plum delights, it is clear that these are the gowns of our generation. See the top five looks below! View Post
I have been waiting for this show since I was a little toddler nugget: The Cruella de Vil collection (presented as Topshop Unique). As the congregation of Anna Wintour-snappers evaporated from sight, the Thirties-cum-Dalmatian models traipsed along the enormous runway. Oversized faux fur and art deco elements were abundant, with nonpareil pieces like the Brooklyn Bridge dress and many embellished sleeve dresses. See the top five looks below! View Post
Finally, a designer has introduced the microscopic dresses that seize my usual Fall/Winter wardrobe. Sass & Bide not only improved and expanded on their typical Amazonian fair, but had a colourful and razzle-dazzle guise. For those who choose not to brave the mini styles, no worries; endless, romantic maxi lengths also found their way to the runway. See the top five looks below! View Post
Herve Leger bandage dresses are the most strenuous stratagem of the last ten years in fashion. Not only do they take a Pilates-addicted body to pull off, but they are mighty involved to pull on. Regardless, Max and Lubov Azria‘s Fall/Winter 2011 designs prove their beauty is relentless, using new techniques and finishings for a warrior princess collection that included a fur trench, cropped pants (!!), and a skirt made of pony hair. It’s not your ordinary bodycon exhibition. See the top five looks below! View Post
