Anyone who knows me will know that New York Fashion Week is like my Christmas. I have been glued to every and any online outlet for the designs since the shows kicked off. One of these days I will get there and be witnessing it all first hand. One day…..
I couldn’t wait to see the Victoria Beckham show as I think her designs are amazing. Needless to say the catwalk did not disappoint. Diane von Furstenberg and Michael Kors are also firm favourites of mine. So here are some of my top picks from the shows so far, I hope you enjoy 🙂
Diane von Furstenberg
Oscar de la Renta
Herve Leger by Max Azria
I particularly admired Peter Copping’s designs for Oscar de la Renta, which did not disappoint despite the late namesake not being this year’s creator.
The FROW’s style was also particularly admirable as always. I will be doing more on some of their looks later in the week.
Lately I have been slightly obsessed with the newly wed Amal Alamuddin, when I say slightly I mean extremely obsessive over the beauty that is the new Mrs Clooney. It’s not enough that Oscar de la Renta designed her wedding dress, Anna Wintour was also a guest at the wedding. As much I love George Clooney, those factors alone outweigh the actual marriage to the former most eligible bachelor.
This woman radiates style, class and intelligence. Her style oozes a sense of elegance which is further reinforced by her choice of simplistic, chic clothing. It’s no wonder this woman can not only nab herself George Clooney as a hubby, but also put together a seriously stylish outfit.
Sorry George who? I think she may the first woman, nay person to outshine Mr George Clooney, who lets be honest is not easily out-shun! It’s no wonder she’s the one who finally got the eternal singleton to settle down and commit. Despite the law degree, Amal may not be the smartest one in this relationship, after all George was smart enough to put a ring on it!
Hope you enjoyed guys 🙂 Hopefully Amal will not suddenly become camera shy so that we can stay style stalking!
Situated in a small cove off the island of Capri, Dolce & Gabbanna welcomed guests to witness their incredible Alta Mode Couture Show. The 200 guests in attendance were requested to dress La Dolce Vita and were treated to a show that can only be described to us meer mortals as breath taking. From models arriving on boats adorned with roses, to the extravagant attire they were showcasing, I think it’s safe to say this was not a regular, run of the mill catwalk exhibition. The incredible and unique setting for the show paid homage to the designers’ beloved home country and a mediterranean fairy-tale atmosphere was created for those lucky enough to be present.
The Fashion power house that is D&G showcased hand painted, striped skirts, velvet bodices and beautiful ballgowns. The bright jewel colours and prints clashing against the picture-esque background of the show’s setting. Guests who were selected for the coveted position in the ‘FROW’ included Anna Wintour (of course) and Anna Dello Russo. Guests were treated to a theatrical firework display to signal the finale of the show, with the after party continuing for a further twenty four hours.
This really is how the other half live! For the rest of us we will have to settle for a glimpse into this lavish lifestyle through our trusty Vogue and of course the ever informative internet searches. I think however events like this can only be understood through experiencing them. It has me thinking, what exactly am I doing wrong?! Maybe this year my invite got lost in the post, so until next time D&G 🙂
