After running around a practically air con-free city in scorching temperatures all week, my blogger uniform has changed quite a bit. Heels, wedges, and boots have been swapped for flats and day-to-night dresses have been switched out for anything comfortable and breathable (as seen in this edition of Outfit of The Week). I am lusting over this camera bag like a teenage girl over the new GQ covers.
Get The Look:
Red Mid Waist Asymmetrical Skirt Shorts from SheInside
Metallic Leather Loafers from Maison Martin Margiela
Shaldon cross-body camera bag from Village England
Cat eye tortoiseshell acetate sunglasses from Zac Posen
Sheena V Neck T-Shirt from Bastyan
Anyone call for red carpet glamour? New York, apparently, as Zac Posen recently returned from his two season stint in Paris. All it took was a second’s glimpse at his Spring/Summer 2012 collection to have the City That Never Sleeps welcome him back with expertly toned arms.
Anyone with an aversion to hourglass shapes and corsets…it is time to jump ship. Posen can give Coco Rocha mega hips, elongate and flare like the best of them, and charm the Spanx onto any woman. He knows how to work a woman’s body. As always, much of the inspiration was from Old Hollywood, and the most impressive pieces were the – strapless, ombre, bustier, tulle, halter, satin, etc – gowns. I’m sure this post will be linked a lot during awards season.
On top of the voluptuous drama, the accessories were also a treat. Charlotte Olympia provided the complimentary footwear (in black, gold, nude and silver with a silver heel), Elizabeth Cole jewellery provided the ‘cherries on top’, Judith Leiber provided clutches, and sunglasses were provided by Illesteva. I wish runways would install shopping cart software. View Post

“). This year, the Vogue
-created ball celebrated the life and work of the late, great Alexander McQueen
and ended up raising $10.8 million for the Costume Institute
While thirteen McQueen gowns were worn, the best of the red carpet best are below: View Post
