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
Though it’s somewhat of an impossibility, Charles Dickens’ Miss Havisham was Miss New York during the beginning of Fashion Week-age, being confirmed as the muse for Prabal Gurung and Marchesa. Speaking of the latter, designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig have stolen my heart yet again. They used every trick in the book, and then created some of their own. I mean….holy corsetry/tulle/embroidery – I am coveting the chance to see these out of their halcyon presentation. The top five looks are below! View Post
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
The reliable rumour mill – if such a thing exists – has been whispering that Zac Posen has been chosen to design Bella Swan‘s Victorian-inspired wedding dress for the expected mega-hit Twilight: Breaking Dawn. In the best-selling book the dress is described as a garment which “stepped out of an [Jane] Austen movie,” you know, tulle, lace, on the edge of gaudy. Supposedly, Kristen Stewart – the actress who plays Bella – had some input in picking the dress, but claimed that it was “pretty much up to [Twilight author] Stephanie Meyer” to find The Dress. With the mass of absolutely mental vampire/werewolf/Robert Pattinson fans eagerly awaiting a first look, Zac has a lot of expectations to fulfil.
I don’t know a red-blooded female who doesn’t like the way the ladies of “Gossip Girl” dress when they are at a party. Now, it will be all that much more accessible. Head stylist for the show as of Season One Episode One, Eric Daman, has teamed with US store Charlotte Russe to design a collection of party dresses and accessories called “Eric Daman for Charlotte Russe“.
The actual dresses are much more impressive than the name – featuring a black one-shoulder sequin dress, a black velvet frock with lace sleeves, a blue strapless piece with tulle accents, and an array of styles that are “designed in a way that they each have their own personality“, with every item under $50.
The collaboration will be available for purchase in Charlotte Russe stores and on CharlotteRusse.com starting Oct. 24.
