Vionnet SS12
Finally, THE THIRTIES!

Though the Spring/Summer collections have allocated a lot of efforts towards time travelling to the 20s, 50s, 70s and more, no one until Vionnet had worked with the 1930s.

Set in a mirrored salon on the Rue de Valois, designer Rodolfo Paglialunga took that chance. An almost-risk free chance, to be honest, as it was in fact Madeleine Vionnet who invented the Twenties-tastic bias cut.

There was a real motif of stars, flowers, and butterflies (who flew into the models’ hair, all-a-sequined) inspiring the elegant collection. There was even a goddess gown embroidered with the most carefully considered bumblebees. Rodolfo offered the most organic, marketable beauty of the season. View Post

Leighton Meester People's Choice Awards
Two gorgeous Leighton Meester looks in one post; how lucky are you? Firstly we have her at the People’s Choice Awards yesterday wearing a Vionnet floral embroidered dress from their Spring/Summer 2011 line, with some go-to Brian Atwood pumps.
Leighton Meester Herbal Essences
On the 4th of January, Meester was ice skating-slash-fulfilling her role as global ambassador for Herbal Essences while working her position as the new face of Missoni. She wore a printed dress with matching jacket by Missoni (obviously), plus her favorite Azzedine Ala├»a lace-up ankle boots and a Proenza Schouler PS1 Keep All bag. In the accessory department, we’re spotting a Cathy Waterman yellow-gold and diamond Love ring, and two Bulgari rings, one of which benefits Save the Children (another sponsor of the event). Busy fashion for a busy starlet.
