Full Circle: the Resistance Will Be Trendy

The revolution may not be televised, but the resistance will be trendy. Some say that the political and social climate are shaping how people dress, however, knowing that fashion was headed into the 70’s regardless of and before the election, I feel as if its only a part of the cyclical nature of fashion.  Yes,…

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…

Givenchy Couture FW16 Fall/Winter 2016

The Givenchy Couture FW16 Fall/Winter 2016 collection was a mix of the unwearable and originality met with attention to detail. Ill-fitting party streamer and fringe dresses added volume to the natural waistline and did nothing for the models. The mirror mosaic reveal beneath black beaded zipper paneled blazer was a unique twist on blazers similar…

Fendi Couture FW16 Fall/Winter 2016

Romantic, feminine, with flowing embellished and embroidered dresses and coats seemingly inspired by Asian trends and mixed with story book illustrations, the Fendi Couture FW16 Fall/Winter 2016 collection was ornate and delicate, and rather graphic as well.  While I didn’t like the blue cape I loved the art nouveau illustrations on it. **Warning- Graphic description:  I…

Converse-ation

Let’s have the Converse-ation about Converse…you may hate them, you may love them, and yes, they may be on-trend for a while longer.  Fashion is just about ready to move from the 90’s into the 70’s, and that means that you can expect to continue to see 90’s influenced fashion for 3-6 months past that…

May I? May Mags

Jennifer Lopez serves up some blank model gaze on the cover of W Magazine’s May issue, with an illegible “One & Only” title matching the logo in pastel rainbow gradation. She wears a black bra beneath a  white lace buttonup and an open-front black cardigan with white trip.  The makeup is a nude lip, subtly…

Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2016 Paris Fashion Week PFW FW16 AH16

The Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2016 Paris Fashion Week runway show melded high fashion with athletic inspiration, made evident in the sleeves and cut of dresses and pullovers. Leather pants, jackets and coats were paired with silk dresses and skirts, fur, and cropped jackets. Remember the halfsie fingerless gloves from SS16? They’ve seemingly inspired leather finger-wrap…

Valentino Fall/Winter 2016 Paris Fashion Week PFW FW16 AH16

The Valentino Fall/Winter 2016 Paris Fashion Week runway show was romantic, delicate, and feminine with light flowing and frilly looks in tulle, silk and chiffon contrasting the heavier or hard-edged- leather and metal plating, patent leather, velvet, and wool.  Valentino PFW FW16 AH16 embodied this ballerina princess warrior, who is leather and armor clad one…

Granny Globetrotter: Chanel Fall/Winter 2016 Paris Fashion Week PFW FW16 AH16

The Chanel Fall/Winter 2016 Paris Fashion Week runway show was oh so old…I wouldn’t be surprised if that was mother of mother of pearl honey. It looks so dated, boring, period…they should make a perfume called “Moth Ball.”  Tweed, season after season, decade after decade…it will soon have a 100th anniversary! Switch it up Chanel!   Chanel…
