Time to get your jollies on with Betsey Johnson‘s Victorian-esque Fall/Winter 2011 collection. Though it is years out of production, this is the wardrobe I would expect to see Sex and The City’s Carrie Bradshaw sporting around NYC. Velvet and animal print were omnipresent, including a stronghold on some must-have onesies. Split into two sections, Betsey’s second half was composed of her new line which piece-by-piece retails for under 100 dollars. At this point, the models were traded for employees and friends of Betseyville, including the gorgeous super-blogger Gala Darling, who all wore wigs in the style of Betsey’s quirky tresses.

Monique Lhuillier has the ‘Ladies’ of the world on lock. If you are a woman – or man – with a taste for the sumptuous and sophisticated, her Fall/Winter 2011 is going to inveigle you. In a colour choice we haven’t seen recently via LHuillier, there was a myriad of baronial black; blace lace, black chiffon, etc. Every gown was a premium excuse to throw out my entire wardrobe and Monique my way to Majestic Fashionista.

This season, the Mulleavy sisters did women who don’t want a boyfriend a huge favour by creating a Little House on the Prairie wardrobe. While Rodarte had a loaded patchwork dominance last season, they switched the ignition for Fall/Winter 2011. Fawn-hued éclat dominated the runway before two MAC Russian Red-coloured dresses shut it down. See the top five looks below! View Post
Marc by Marc Jacobs latched onto the ever-present Seventies trend from Spring/Summer 2011 and wrapped it in a bow. Down for the disco era? With combinations of materials like metallic copper and leather/leopard print and anise-brown velvet, you have the makings of a stunning retro wardrobe, presented down a high school gymnasium-type runway with coloured tape and battered birch-wood. A nod to Marc Jacobs high school era, presumably. Another superb digest for every occasion. See the top five looks below! View Post
My confession of the day: I adore Leighton Meester. Her stylist, Logan Horne, knows just how to dress her and shares a dress sense just as fabulous as her Gossip Girl character Blair Waldorf, with a little spice and frivolity. From now on – in the inventively named ‘Leighton Meester Style‘ category – I will chronicle her wardrobe. I accept thank yous via Louboutins.
To kick this fashion diary off, we will take a look at Leighton’s appearance last night at the Gotham Independent Film Awards. With Thom Browne‘s new entrance into mass-market womenswear, she is the first big shot we have seen wearing one of his androgynous suits. She finished off her look with Salvatore Ferragamo pumps and Bulgari jewelry.
