D&G SS12
As previously mentioned, D&G‘s Spring/Summer 2012 collection was the final collection for the brand. Moment of silence

…over. Time to get happy and excited about Domenico and Stefano’s designs integrating into Dolce & Gabbana! As a goodbye kiss, the designers pulled scarf prints from their own back catalog and combined them with crests, medallions, polka dots, flowers, butterflies and more. Like a lot of my favourite collections this season, the entire show was frosted in prints.

Whether the look was glamorous, eclectic, or a mix of the two, I am positive that every single one of these pieces are going to be collector’s items. Save me some minaudières, satin print wedges and gold gladiator flats, y’all. View Post

Vogue Russia Tan Jamie Nelson
Vogue Russia‘s Райское изобилие – or “Heavenly Abundance” – is not a fashion spread for those who can’t fathom fashion sarcasm. In the shoot for their May 2011 issue, we have Kate Netolicka selling us a categorically Nineties way of over-doing it. From skin to accessories, the Jamie Nelson-shot photos are iced in gold and orange, with a sprinkling of papaya whipped lips. Fantastically trashy. View Post

Vivienne Westwood Fall Winter 2011
Vivienne Westwood‘s line sheet read “…you can wear anything in our part of the world. Anything goes”, and meant it. Her Fall/Winter 2011 collection – titled “World Wide Woman” – stressed her idiosyncratic, rich attributes anywhere she could include them. Atop a gold-glittered runway, we saw everything from hot pants to ball gowns, with no despondency. It was Vivienne’s Golden Hour. See the top five looks below! View Post

Blake Lively
What a luckless Lively. Even though Blake has been Anna Wintour‘s cover model for three issues this year – including Vogue’s Best Dressed supplement – she is truly not bringing in the dineros. Audit Bureau of Circulations has confirmed that Blake Lively‘s June Vogue cover was the third worst-selling issue of the year and her Esquire cover was the worst-seller of the year. ABC says Taylor Swift wasn’t doing much better, with newsstand sales for her April Elle cover running 60,000 less than average, her November Glamour cover being their second-worst selling issue of the year, and July’s Marie Claire as the magazine’s third worst-selling issue.

Who is magazine gold? Lady Gaga. (Vogue has apparently taken note, as she will be their March cover girl).
