Chic, Chic, Chic!!!! There really isn’t anything more chic than Celine. Phoebe Philo Is a genius!
I haven’t had much time to review all the shows, but I always make time for my favorites. And if I had to pick, I’d say New York and Paris are my can’t misses of the cities that host our beloved fashion week. See the full collection here Style.com. (All pictures via style.com)
The Dries Van Noten ss15 Paris show was like being lost in a midsummer night’s dream pajama party. The silky colors all contrasting perfectly together and the draping of the most perfect trousers. These were just some of the magical looks from the show to see more go to Style.com.
Donna Karan’s spring/summer 2015 fashion show was one for the books, exploding with scribbles, strokes, splashes and sequins. The theme of this year’s show was The Art Of The Street, spontaneous, spirited and encouraged you to show your individual colors and paint the town chic. Donna quoted “the bra, is the new bodysuit– sexy, structured, day to night.” — and she’s never wrong!
I swooned so hard sitting at the show, having the chance to be apart of the extraordinary team and knowing I had a place in this show coming to life was a moment, in my life, where I was literally hyperventilating because that was a dream come true. Getting to see & meet idols of mine in person, talking to celebrities, coordinating and placing all the name cards (Anna Wintour and the Vogue teams) and helping supermodels like Karlie Kloss, I had to pinch myself. I don’t know what the future holds… but I know it’s going to be impressive!
“New York is my palette, my passion, my fuel — A culture that empowers creativity. Explore your imagination — and share it with the world.” Donna Karan
The 66th Annual Emmy Awards took place this past Sunday and the red carpet was flowing with beautiful and some not so beautiful dresses.
The biggest trend was the color red, everyone from Claire Danes to Heidi Klum were rocking this fierce color. With the sea of red dresses that overcrowded the red carpet it was nice to see stars like Julie Bowen and Kerry Washington taking chances. Lizzy Caplan in Donna Karan Atelier was best dressed of the night for me. She hands down epitomized a Hollywood star with this ultra chic statement dress.
One of the best New York experiences is to spend a day at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. I made a beeline towards The Anna Wintour Costume Center to see the Charles James: Beyond Fashion exhibit. I took as many pictures (on my iPhone) as I could before the big, scary security guard brought that to a stop.
This exhibit will allow your mind to escape to another realm of dressing. Where the women believed in dressing like a lady and where feeling beautiful meant wearing James’s designs. His use of craftsmanship, innovative tailoring and sculptural construction are only a few qualities that make him the genius we still love today.
