2017 Cannes Red Carpet Best and Worst Dressed

The 2017 Cannes Film Festival Red Carpet was full of glitter, glitz, and glam and sharply contrasted by cheap costume looks complete with synthetic wigs in fashion colors.  Fabulous stylist-curated wardrobes, carefully posed clutches, poised postures…Cannes is one of the years big fashion events, Hollywood starlets drawing the attention of the world in all their…

Wear, Watch, Listen, Read, Shop, Sweat…

Wear: Cut-away shoulders- they were all over the runways for SS17, as were flared legs and sleeves. Read: Marie Claire- the beauty bar has been raised, and segues to the next point…rejuvenate. Rejuvenate: Bioeffect Serum might be $160, but it’s based on a Geothermal Powered lab’s discovery in EGF, epidermal growth factor according to Marie […]

Met Ball 2017: Rei Kawakubo Comme des Garçons

The 2016 Met Gala’s theme is Manus x Machina, and appropriately, Marchesa tweeted out a collaboration with IBM- and their “Cognitive Dress” in the early morning hours. We’ve seen many memorable looks from past Met Ball themes of Punk and China through the Looking Glass.  I just have Linda Fargo and Sarah Jessica Parker, as […]

Coach X Rodarte

Collaborations can be everything- not only are they usually more affordable than the larger designer brand, but there is this creative mainstream appeal that has a different voice than the brands individually. The Coach Rodarte collaboration is hard edged and soft, masculine and feminine with ornate beaded and studded sequin floral embellishments on leather, gold chain…

Grammy’s Red Carpet Fashion

Worst Dressed: Girl Crush I hate her BALLS-gown…but it took balls to wear. Best Dressed: Demi Lovato in Balmain The Weirdest Dressed: The Grammy’s have long been an event known for its fashion- good, and bad.  We saw the evolution from casual and nonchalant to more appropriate attire hitting the carpet…well, overall.  People are usually…

AMA’S Best and Worst Dressed

The Good The garments, styling, beauty- for the most part, everything seemed to create a cohesive look….with the exception of Teyana Taylor, whose hair and makeup seemed to be disparate from the dress itself….a subtler brow and less highlight on the cheeks…perhaps a slightly less nude lip, and an up-do would’ve made this look complete…

Saint Laurent Spring/Summer 2017

Saint Laurent Spring/Summer 2017 was a continuation of their against-the-grain 80’s vibe…the only thing on-trend about it was the carpet bagger jackets. The silhouettes, the grotesque sloppiness of it all was off-putting – it was stiff and cheap with leather, gold lamé…sleeves and shoulders dropped more and more throughout the show. Is that a drop…

Balmain Spring/Summer 2017

Can I be honest? I want Balmain to switch it up next fall in a major way. This is like a three season transition here, and while there have been such glamorous looks, I feel like there isn’t enough of a contrast from SS16 to SS17. The post-Olivier Balmain has gone from edgy and grunge…

Gareth Pugh Spring/Summer 2017

Since it is Throwback Thursday, let’s discuss the Gareth Pugh Spring/Summer 2017 LFW collection, an avant-garde, grandiose, even theatrical show. Like something out of a Lady Gaga video, this dark and dramatic 3D sculptural masterpiece strut onto the runway. Speaking of which, I can see her, Beyoncé, and Katy Perry in Pugh, and feel as…

Moschino Spring/Summer 2017

Jeremy Scott’s nostalgic pop culture, animated, and fashion referencing designs always have us reliving our childhood…now through paper dolls. Tabs on the sides of garments, all about teddy backpacks, and even on faux caps created this magical runway show full of paper barbies…a continuation from seasons past and, given I didn’t like the last shows,…

Fendi Spring/Summer 2017

Laser cuts, stripes galore, intricately gorgeous bags, the Fendi Spring/Summer 2016 runway show was full of utilitarian pockets, voluminous sleeves, truly wearable takes on the PJ’s movement, and how Karl can anything be without shade(s)? There was something odd about those aprons…err- slip dress mutations, and I can only see them serving as a cover…
