Love her or not, Lady Gaga is an indisputable style icon. She just never lets a camera down. Last night, Miss Stefani Germanotta graced ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ as a guest judge. Not only did she propel her relationship by donning one piece of Atelier Versace, oh no, but she decked herself in the brand from head to toe.
As a compliment to her pop art-inspired make-up look, she wore a gorgeous 2-button red jacket covered with the signature Versace Medusa emblems and dragon print, as well as matching Atelier Versace bell bottom pants, red military hat and 12-inch red leather platform boots (one of which she threw on stage, overwhelmed, after Sasha and Melanie danced).
Emilio Pucci‘s designer, Peter Dundas, is the brains behind the look of ‘The Privileged Hippie‘; a hippie with a flair for his signature, cleavage-baring dramatics. For the Fall/Winter 2011 show set in the Palazzo Serbelloni, the garments felt sectarian to the location. We’re talking ruby velvet bodices and dirndls, among other elite-cum-bucolic associations. The details were brimming with bells and whistles (not literally), and the trademark prints did not once disappoint. See the top five looks below! View Post
The 10th anniversary for the brand that Kate Middleton inadvertently put on every housewife’s lips? Yeah, I was expecting big things from Issa. Yasmin Le Bon and Andrea Dellal were just two of the top models presenting us with Daniella Issa Helayel‘s meritorious draping, statement head wear, signature silk jersey, with Manolo Blahnik and Stephen Jones accessories.

There has been such a profusion of white-based collections over Spring/Summer 2011‘s four fashion weeks that it has become offensive. As part of the trend, Alexis Mabille managed to get off the hook. Though completely neutral, his full skirts and signature bows had a refined dexterity. This is the kind of stuff women reach for when they want something a little bit fabulous in their day. View Post
Zac Posen caused a bit of a stir with his first-ever Paris show. While it puts me on ‘the other side of the fence’, I appreciated this feather-filled and supremely sexy collection. I was a huge fan of Z Spoke (his diffusion line) a few weeks ago at New York Fashion Week, and while his signature silhouette followed him to France, there were many more boudoir suggestions on show. I will admit it was a little bit lost in translation – mainly due to the fact that he was showing in the old Yves Saint Laurent showspace – where years of the most influential fashion history have taken place. Baby blunder. View Post
