Ralph Lauren SS12
As a bit of a secret bookie, one of the reasons I love Ralph Lauren is the fact that in 1974 (at the beginning of his company), Mr. Lauren designed the costumes for The Great Gatsby. Imagine my surprise to see that – almost forty years later – he had designed a collection for the modern day Daisy Buchanan. The roaring Spring/Summer 2012 fashion show is going to blow your mind.

It was a feather-heavy 1920s homage with enough bias-cut to seduce your wallet into Danger Zone. That said, there was also an interesting mix of platform wedges, glossy palazzo pants and interesting suit details that pushed the collection into modern territory and steered the retro romance away from appearing costume-like. With robin’s egg blue, celadon, and daffodil colouring, every look was capped off and toughened up with a cloche hat. It was divine. View Post

Jessica SimpsonJessica Simpson is reportedly in negotiations to judge the 2011 season of American Idol and has met with the producers several times. The show is due to have a huge overhaul and claims to be making a big announcement at its event at the 2010 Television Critics Association Press Tour this coming Monday.

I know I would be watching with Cheryl Cole-like anticipation as far as fashion choices would go. The Price of Beauty creator is routinely criticised for poor wardrobe choices and I’m sure would light up the world of fashion blogs in one way or another.

Mid-slew of unflattering maxi dresses and shapeless workut gear, I recently fell completely in love with an outfit she wore while traipsing New York City (seen below). She’s wearing Ralph Lauren Ricky Sunglasses in Black, theĀ Christian Dior Chri Chri Shopping Bag, the Yves Saint Laurent Essentiel Rivet Sandals, a Prada Gathered Shoulder Blouse and a Linea Pelle Pyramid Studded Hip Belt in Black.
