McQueen's Little Princess

Happy Thursday everyone I'm here to bring you my #1 collection from Fashion before I get to that there's been gossip running like wildfire that an old schoolmate from our school was in Paris during fashion week and trying to sneak into the shows...of course he got kicked out but Kanye saw him and gave him an extra ticket(according to his brother) but anyways no one knew what fashion show but i looked it up and he was front row at Lanvin!! everyone at school was just like wtf but anyways i would have killed for that seat and not only that he got to sit next to Mario Testino, Carine Rotfield(the superchic editor who i'd love to meet) and Kanye West and on his facebook he has pictures with all of them and Jessica Alba...forget all the celebrities its lanvin but anyways he was a lucky guy
Now on to Alexander McQueen's once again brilliant collection...he always makes magical inspiring clothes but something about this collection that made me drool. He based it on a princess he believes came from a giant old tree in his reminds me of the little princess with its amazing frocks and Indian style headgear and earrings(once as a school project i had to borrow an Indian sari and headgear from a Hindu friend and there absolutely breathtaking with bold colors in gorgeous chiffons and usually gold embroidery all around and a beautiful headgear to match with semiprecious stones). The collection started of with the always favorite and chic black dresses, pants and separates fit for a princess going out for a walk followed by grecian draped dresses with metallic leggings and Indian undertones and lastly it finished with gorgeous frocks fit for any princess even one from a tree made of gorgeous colored plumes with crinolines and a very art inspired dress in cream,blue and bronze with a white bubbled crinoline to poof it up. It was a gorgeous collection that sort of reminded me why I fell in love with fashion...because it is like wearing art that reflects your daydreams and feelings.

Before I give you all my #1 choice for the fall shows I bring you my spring inspiration

Monday, March 17, 2008

Alright so my second favorite collection for fall/winter was Balenciaga...even though it is almost always on the top of my list this season there is one collection that has beat it. I loved his fall collection it sort of plays on the same clothing structure as spring season but in a darker and different way.
My absolute favorite look from the collection its so artsy but not in a hippie kind of way more in a modern kind of way..Ghesquiere certainly knows how to reinvent the line every season
Once again the Balenciaga shoes are to die for i love these boots they seem to be made out of organza, very light and feminine to go along with the artsy structural look of the collection
I love this point booty its a very architectural looking heel that I would happily spend all my birthday and christmas money on a pair of these

Now on to the rest of the Balenciaga to reinvent the little black dress in a modern sexy new way

This classic white black dress that looks different than every other white and black evening look because of the structured hip
This grey jacket and skirt are so refined and chic...its gorgeous and so understated its made out of such a gorgeous different fabric and a great structure like the rest of the collection
A very unexpected evening dress in a great structure and great fabric and a gorgeous color
It seems reminiscent of his urban tribal dress but with a twist the yellow,silver,gray, and blue mix so well and are elegantly pulled together by a black belt

Since Balenciaga came in 2nd can you guess who won 1st place? Well when i post it i think most of you will agree that in all fairness the #1 collection definitely blows #2 out of the water

I'm sorry for an extremely long absence...but think of it as my vacation but now i'm back full force and i'll be posting some of my favorite looks from my favorite fall runway shows. First of I'll start with the always adorable alber elbaz at lanvin and his predominantly dark colored yet fashion forward collection.

A very swingy gorgeous dress...and note the one shoulder is still going strong for fall not to mention his statement necklaces
A very bold feminine look....very executive power woman but with a touch of femininity, the color also makes it a very basic classic wraparound dress
A very simple black long sleeved sheath with detailed cuffs that give it that extra touch to the classic LBD
The shoes were just as yummy as the clothes, these patent navy ankle bootie are definitely on my fall wishlist
As well as Christian from Project Runway would say very tranny fierce..t strap heels also in navy maybe navy is the new black?
This gorgeous detailed black dress with long black gloves great attention details and workmanship on the dress
One of my favorite dresses i just love everything about it...if Alber Elbaz has an extra in a size 2 he can send it this way...not only does it have one shoulder but gorgeous draping and a sheer top and sleeve its just perfection from the master
I also loved this simple textured black dress with the statement necklace..simple yet chic
This once again black dress is also very much my style (all Lanvin is my style) with the beaded detail on the dress and the very intricate and very cool sleeves
This last dress also has the sheer top that i loved so much a simple textured sweetheart neckline deep red color with one long black sleeve
