HAUTE COUTURE 2012 : V A L E N T I N O

These breathtaking figures reveal just what makes the haute couture so special—but it is the hands of Valentino’s skilled Roman atelier staff that really spin magic into material that is, of course, far from base, and bring the Chiuri and Piccioli vision so beautifully to life.

DROOL OVER DRESSES!

“If you are to buy a piece, buy a dress, at least you’re dressed” – Marc Jacobs

On that note, given to us by one of my favorite designers, I decided to dig into the internet looking for those dresses that can make your mouth feel all watery, and make your heart eat itself out! No matter what we buy every season and how funky we try to be with the panks, skirts, overalls etc… The truth remains that nothing can make us feel and look as feminine and beautiful as a dress can.
Its true, there are numerous styles and shapes for dresses, some of us like the long maxi dresses and others will not wear one unless forced to by a wedding card that says “Dress code: MAXI”. Regardless, a dress is all woman, and boy don’t we all love feel all woman. So heres a tribute to the one piece that will always remain in our closet, the one piece that will always have our backs, and the one piece we will always run to when we have some serious impressing to do. As a matter of fact, forget impressing anyone, a dress can make you feel good for you, and thats what this blog is all about anyways!
Enjoy the pics, and for some of you , HAPPY SHOPPING!

“The Hunger Games” Screams Fashion

March 23 will mark worldwide release for the film adaptation of Suzanne Collin’s young adult novelThe Hunger Games.” However, for us fashionably driven girls, we have had our eyes on all the bits and pieces happening anywhere close to the red carpets. I must say, weather I talk of Elizabeth Banks or Jennifer Lawrence, I simply cant make up my mind as to which wore it best at the ‘The Hunger Games’ promo tour. But wait, bear with me, I can explain why!

Starting with Elizabeth Banks.

The actress wore a citrus hue opting for tangy lemon Bill Blass Spring 2012 dress. Her look here can definitely brighten up any occasion.

She matched her lovely dress with matching Judith Leiber ‘East/West’ crocodile clutch and Irene Neuwirth pearl-drop earrings.

I personally love her choice of wavy locks and simple pink shaded makeup. On this occasion I’d prefer Elizabeth’s dress over just about anybody!

I love sequins! I love floral embellishments and I with no doubt love Marc Jacobs, but I just could not love this outfit. To be fair though,the Marc Jacobs Fall 2012 collection is quite tough to wear on the red carpet, and Banks’ did choose probably the most red carpet ready piece.

She also did quite well by not letting her hair down (this dress has enough going on already!) I still feel she looks a little dull.

Elizabeth looked stunning as she wore a fully embellished Elie Saab Spring 2012 orange gown to the Berlin premiere. Embracing color as she did at the London Premiere, adding more perfection with lovely glossy waves and makeup.

I know many prefer Jennifer, but with this dress, I would pick Elizabeth any day…

OH MY VERSACE! How could we not fall in love with this look! The Color, the design, the details … she is glowing. Elizabeth, with no doubt again, looked spectacular with this Atelier Versace bright orange structured one-shoulder mini dress (don’t forget to examine all the cut-out detail and gold accents – WOW)

The Jimmy Choo wedges are a good pick as they don’t attempt to upstage the dress. The Gold jewels were a nice completion to the look. I like her half up and straight hairstyle, but i think for added sexy appeal she might have wanted to go with a pony tail.

There you have it, Elizabeth Banks and her Hunger Games Premiere looks. In my next blog i will discuss Jennifer Lawrence and then maybe along the way I could actually make a decision regarding who I believe was the Best Dressed. You can help!
