Crazy for Couture: Days 3 & 4

9 Jul

The final two days of Paris Couture were filled with sparkles at Elie Saab, drama at Jean Paul Gaultier, classic colors at Valentino, and a bit of whimsy at Ulyana Sergeenko.  Each collection provided its fair share of eye candy.  Let’s have a taste.

Crazy for Couture – Day 2

4 Jul

For me – the highlights of today’s couture shows in Paris were the milky whites of Chanel and the furry embellishments of Givenchy. Now all I need is a slew of special occasions in a snow dusted locale, either Karl or Riccardo to design me “bump-friendly” versions of these looks, and a money tree with which to buy them.  Not looking so good really…

Crazy for Couture – Day 1

3 Jul

The Paris Haute Couture shows have started, and the collections shown on day one were all about volume and/or color.  Here are my favorite over-the-top looks of the day:

I mean who doesn’t need a tu-tu cape? Alexis Mabille Couture Fall 2012

Or a giant tu-tu collar? This would have been perfect for our Circus of Love last August. A day late…and a lot of tulle short. Alexis Mabille Couture Fall 2012

Pretty-in-Pink. How very Enchanted Evening Barbie! Christian Dior Couture Fall 2012

Hello Neon! Christian Dior Couture Fall 2012

You know I love a hoop skirt. Christian Dior Couture Fall 2012.

Peplum Perfection! Christian Dior Couture Fall 2012

Giambattista Valli Couture Fall 2012

Perfect for hiding a very flat chest. Giambattista Valli Couture Fall 2012

Runway Rundown – NYFW – Day 3

14 Feb

While day 3 of New York Fashion Week offered a few amazing pant looks (which I have included in my rundown), I was most  captivated by the dresses and outerwear.  Here are my favorite dress looks from Day 3:

Former Project Runway Winner: Christian Siriano Fall 2012

I am a fan of anything with a built-in cape. Christian Siriano Fall 2012

I love that he paired such a feminine gown with a biker jacket. What a great way to mix up a frilly look. Christian Siriano Fall 2012

I love this cocktail dress. Although, most people (myself included) cannot pull off ankle boots with this hem length. So - if you are not of model height...opt for heels instead. Christian Cota Fall 2012

Christian Cota Fall 2012

This look has a lot going on - but the jacket....I love it. Christian Cota 2012

I am so happy to see that "happy colors" are still going to be around for fall. Dean Quinn Fall 2012

Ruffian Fall 2012

Amazing coat dress. Betty Draper meets Star Trek. Prabal Gurung Fall 2012

Who can resist a sweater with built-in fur pom-poms? So festive! Wes Gordan Fall 2012

I love the red lining...and the huge fur bangles are pretty fun too! Wes Gordan Fall 2012

Unfortunately, the non-model body type might have trouble with this look. My obvious suggestion is a more fitted top to accentuate the waistline. Wes Gordan Fall 2012.

Duro Olowu Fall 2012

Hervé Léger by Max Azria Fall 2012

Lacoste Fall 2012

Mara Hoffman Fall 2012

Rachel Zoe Fall 2012

Now for my “Pant Picks”:

Monique Lhuillier Fall 2012

Rachel Zoe Fall 2012

Rachel Zoe Fall 2012

Mixing prints is holding strong on the fall runways. This is a lot to carry off - but I really like proportions. Duro Olowu Fall 2012

Band of Outsiders Fall 2012
