Paris Spring 2007 Couture

As the Academy Awards are just around the corner, big designers race to dress the ultra fabulous for one of the most prestigious nights of showbusiness. Intricate detailing, hand-painted silk gowns, designers debuted their haute couture lines in Paris a few days ago. Only a few fashion houses do couture as it is extremely expensive, and can be as long as six figures; the six houses so far are Christian Dior, Elie Saab, Givenchy, Chanel, Valentino and Christian Lacroix. Up soon is Armani Prive and Jean Paul Gaultier. Old fashion houses that have been running for generations and have built up a name as one of the best of haute couture.

Christian Dior
My favorite so far. I haven't seen all of them. (SO busy!!)
I think this collection speaks for itself. well done mr Galliano. (gosh it's so beautiful! i'm just in awe!)

And as the French say, au revoir!

Back to the future

So there's this new trend that I've been noticing lately, and I'm not really a big fan of it rather I think it 's kinda... hmm... strange, of course some pieces may be a work of art.. but I wonder what we are really going to wear in the future... Is the stereotypical image of us in all things shiny and metallic and aline geomatrical mini dresses really going to come true? well Pierre Cardin and Paco Rabanne seem to think so; well here are a few looks to get you to adapt to what you're gonna wear in 30 years time --

Jill Stuart spring runway -- shiny A-line minidress

Alberta Ferreti spring runway - metallic silver balloon dress

Fendi Spring runway - monochrome geomatric (yet another) minidress

that's it for now, ciao from me

Golden Globe Dresses!

I know it's a bit late, but I haven't found the time because there has been no stupid internet! Anyway to who watched the Golden Globes, wasn't it the bomb but sadly I didn't get to watch the red carpet bit at the beginning and I didn't see everyone who's anyone's dresses. But there were so many gorgeous dresses and I can't choose my favorite! so I'll just show all of them teeheeeheee...

Firstly I loved America's dress and I was so happy she won! Awww... I got so teary, anyway I like the jewel tone of her Brian Reyes dress.
I loved Reese's dress, when I saw it I was like that's so cute! She wore a vivid yellow Nina Ricci dress... I did think though that it was a different style for her as she always opts for demure vintage-inspired looks.
And my gosh was there an abundance of white gowns or what! Everyone from Kyra Sedgwick (whose white dress was my favorite) to Nicolette to Teri and Salma and Kate and Heidi to Ali Larter!

Some gorgeous black gowns...

Oh and worst dressed -- Beyonce is one of them, I mean there were millions of gold dresses from Elie Saab's spring pret-a-porter collection, but the one she chose was oh-so-unflattering, and even she did not look usually gorgeous that night... tsk tsk And Rinko Kikuchi's pom pom dress was just plain weird...

And before I go I also loved Hayden Panettiere's dress! It was all Grecian-esque! I love it but I can't find a picture of it sadly! I will post one up if i do!

Lookalike shoes!!

O me gawds, I was looking through net-a-porter and found these pair of Jimmy Choo's that uncannily resembles a new pair of Charles and Keith shoes I bought. Hmm I bet they copied it off Jimmy Choo teehee
But its really similar with the toe thong, and the white and gold, as well as a buckle fastening ankle strap! Ooo wow.

Wide legged wonders

Sorry I haven't blogged in like gazillion years but I've just been SOOOOO busy doing nothing!
Anyway I'm not really into the skinny jean thign anymore, I mean if it looks good on you I guess you can keep it around for a while longer, but i've moved on to wide legged jeans! I think they're super cute but still sophisticated i like the ones with suspenders. I've seen them all over the spring runways and here are some--
