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.

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…

Chanel Couture FW1516

The Chanel Couture Fall/Winter 2015/2016 show featured a star studded cast of gamblers, including Julianne Moore, Rita Ora, Kristen Stewart, and more.  Sheer, black, quilted, black leather, luxe metallic tweeds.  It seems the future of Chanel met a spunky grandma.  The layers were beautifuul, as were the beaded appliques.  It was an overall great show…

Grammy’s Best & Worst

Katy Perry’s hair and dress were stunning. Miley Cyrus took a good risk. Beyonce’s carpet Dolce was ok… I didn’t mind Taylor Swift’s pretty mullet dress- but hated the pairing of those shoes with it. Rihanna looked dually pregnant in Giambattista Valli Couture, but Kim Kardashian’s Krazy Gaultier dress just might take the cake with…
