Would You Wear This Trend?

Bow BlouseBow Blouse: The bow blouse is one of the biggest trends of the new season. Amira Casar wore hers with a graphic skirt. What do you think?

 

LaceLace: Maggie Gyllenhaal donned a lacy orange (orange lace!) dress from Jean Paul Gaultier for one of the raciest incarnations of lace this season. Is that a look you would wear?

 

Bold NecklaceBold Necklace: Jennifer Missoni paired an earthy, bold necklace with a neutral top and simple hair: very chic! But are you ready to wear an statement necklace like this?

Best Dressed For Golden Globes

The Golden Globe Awards are presented annually by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) to recognize outstanding achievements in the entertainment industry and to focus wide public attention upon the best in motion pictures and television. The formal ceremony and dinner at which the awards are presented is a major part of the film industry’s “awards season”, which culminates each year with the Academy Awards.

While the awards are extremely important, the fashion plays an enormous role in the Golden Globes. Everyone wonders who will wear what. This year was especially important because, in 2008, due to the writers strike, the 65th Golden Globe Awards was not telecasted live. So all of the fashion-lovers were all excited to see all of the fashion for the year, the 66th Golden Globe Awards.

Here are a few of what I call the Best Dressed:

66th Golden Globes
Amy Adams looked stunning in this beautiful Oscar de la Renta dress. It brought out her fiery red hair and she stood out on the red carpet.66th Golden Globes
Kate Beckinsale styled a J. Mendel gown with Fred Leighton jewels.66th Golden Globes

Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton Collection

Marc Jacobs’s collection for Louis Vuitton was a dazzling shot of adrenaline to the season. Just when it seemed an uneasy fashion world had given up on thrillingMarc Jacobs and collectively decided to “softball it for spring”, Marc Jacobs sent out a Louis Vuitton collection that in any season would have been great. But in contrast to what came before—forays into luxury, safe plays on classics—it was pulse-quickening. In this Paris fashion week, Jacobs continued what he’d started with his collection in New York: crazy fabric mash-ups, layers of references, and snugly sashed waists. Yet now these varied elements cohered into a more urban and highly designed collection, infused with an abundance of ideas and offering infinite wardrobe possibilities. Short, snappy skirts, sequins, and studded suede mixed with perky shouldered jackets—all topped off by a large number of tribal-inspired accessories. With an eye to Paris in the forties, Jacobs seemed to be advocating an entirely different, carpe-diem approach to general malaise: Throw caution to the wind, have fun getting dressed, and by all means, pile it on!

Most Un-Fabulous Looks of Spring 2009 Shows

There were so many beautiful, new and fresh looks from New York’s fashion week last fall. Every designer works so hard on each piece of clothing that gets presented on the runway during fashion week. However, there were a few looks that were…pretty out there.Hideous Look on the runway Here are a few:

Is this even considered a piece of clothing? How can the model see down the runway?

Pretty in Pink?

 

This garment looks like an Elle Woods Re-mix! There are way too many different colors of pink on this model! And maybe, next time, the fabric could be a little more modest.

This. is. scary.

Would you want your boyfriend wearing this? Or even your girlfriend?? I know that mixing patterns are in style, but I think this is just too much. I mean, look at his face! Even he is embarrassed to style this look.

Wow

It looks as if this model stepped out of Star Trek or Star Wars. Right down to the shoes and gloves.

 

Nun?

I give credit to the color and the modernization, but I personally would not wear this even if I were a nun. There is way too much fabric on the pleated bottom half and the “foot-cuffs” don’t appeal to me much.

In these tough economic times, will she choose an off the rack fashion design or will she follow the precedent set by many previous first ladies and wear fashion couture created by an American clothing designer? A few of the world’s most prominent designers have sketched out their own ideas for the future First Lady on her big night. (Hold your pointer over the sketches to find out who they are!)Michael KorsReem Acraoscar-de-la-rentaPeter SomTuleh

Through the Decades Fashion

Designers are looking back to the past for fashion today. They are very influenced and inspired from the history of our past fashions. Runways are slowly containing more and more 20s, 50s, and 80s fashion. Fashion designers and even everday people get inspired by looking at the fashion icons from way back when and they try to build up their wardrobe to look like Jackie O. or Audrey Hepburn. It seems as though history is repeating itself in a more modern way!Inspired by the 20sInspired by the 50sInspired by the 80s

Anna Wintour

Anna Wintour at a Fashion ShowSome think of her as the devil of fashion. Others respect her for her abundance of high-fashion knowledge. Anna Wintour is the editor-in-chief of Vogue, a position that she has held since 1988. She has become a world-wide known fashion icon in today’s world. She is known for her pageboy bob haircut and trademark sunglasses, always sitting in the front row of almost every fashion show. Away from the cameras, Wintour has become as much an institution in the fashion world as her magazine. Universally hailed for her keen eye for fashion trends and support for younger designers, her aloof and demanding persona has earned her the nickname of “Nuclear Wintour”. A former personal assistant, Lauren Weisberger wrote the bestseller The Devil Wears Prada in 2003. It was later turned into a hit film, starring Meryl Streep as Miranda Priestly, a fashion editor widely believed to portray Anna Wintour.

 Anna Wintour, through the years, has become one of the most powerful people in fashion, setting trends and anointing new designers. She has worked behind the scenes to encourage fashion houses to hire younger, fresher designers such as John Galliano, who owes his position at Christian Dior to her intervention. She persuaded Donald Trump to let Marc Jacobs use a ballroom at the Plaza Hotel for a show when he and his partner were short of cash. That is mostly how Marc Jacobs became widely known throughout the world. She is also said to have helped Alexander McQueen rise to be a famous designer. Wintour helped raise money for the Twin Towers fund after the September 11th terror attacks. With the Council of Fashion Designers of America, she helped create a new fund to encourage and support up-and-coming designers.

Like her image, Wintour’s daily regime is legendary. She wakes up at 5:45 am every morning, plays tennis for an hour before being professionally made-up, coiffed and chauffeured to the offices of Vogue in New York City. Though one of New York’s most prolific party throwers, she never stays at any one event for more than twenty minutes, preferring to be in bed by 10:00 pm.

 Anna Wintour announced in 2006 plans to allow a documentary film to be made of the behind-the-scenes work on Vogue’s September issue. Perhaps for the first time, audiences will get a glimpse of the real Anna Wintour in action. But no matter what her reputation becomes, she will always be known as an influential force in the world of fashion.Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada
