Mach and Mach

So besides New York, Paris, London and Milan Fashion Week there are actually so many other fashion weeks including Russia and there was one show in particular that really caught my eye and that is Mach and Mach.

This collection is for the fearless for sure, now please don’t forget what I am always saying try not to focus on the wildness of it all zoom in on the pieces because they are exactly what you long for in your wardrobe. 

 
This collection is for the empowered woman who fears nothing and has no boundaries or limits and it shows in all that she does or wears in this case.

If this duo keeps this momentum up with their designs this is a label who we will see at the bigger fashion weeks!

Dior AW Campaign!

She has helped make the brand relevant again in this รผber cool era since she became a brand ambassador for over 5 years now.
Since she accepted her Oscar wearing Dior but first falling in Dior she injected life back into the fashion house and so to is the new Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri.
 With her strong bold message that she has portrayed in this collection there really was only one lady to front this campaign and that was the ultimate modern girl who refuses to conform to Hollywoods ideology of a woman and that of course is the stunning Jennifer Lawrence.
Here are relaxed images from the new campaign.


All of a sudden as if out of nowhere Dior is relevant once again.

Chanel Fall ’17

We all need a good laugh sometimes and Karl never fails to deliver as he showcased very large rocket!

I mean who doesn’t love a rocket ๐Ÿš€ And the fashion wasn’t too bad either. Now usually I’m obsessed with every piece from the Chanel collections, unfortunately it wasn’t the case this time. With that being said I’m just simply not going to show you the ensembles that are not my taste.

For me it’s always about the white, the pearls and the tweed ๐Ÿ˜ and it still amazes me how he can reinvent the Chanel “stapled” look, I mean it’s the DNA and we would be lost without it.

Karl reminds us that his collection is “other worldly or out of this world” with the theme!

Always remember focus on the pieces to get the full appreciation for the garments.
More importantly the Frow was sick, we had my fav duo Pharrel Williams and Cara Delevingne were sitting side by side.

Loving Cara’s hair it’s the exact way I had mine this time 2 years ago … so jealous ๐Ÿ˜’ Sitting with the dynamic duo was Lily Rose Depp, one of my fav muses.

Also in attendance was Rita Ora and Lily Allen.

Kisses for Karl ๐Ÿ˜˜

Saint Laurent Fall 2017

The day Saint Laurent blew my mind!!! (Although it was a few days ago now ๐Ÿ˜‚)
This is what it I live for .. dramatically exquisite details ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ Pounding the runway, one stride greater than the next in rhinestone boots!! 

For me it’s only when we get up close we see the true we see the impact this show will have on Fall.

When looking at this collection I picture champagne guzzling, cigarette smoking girls in a tres chic bar in central Paris having uber sophisticated conversations about their wild, unrealistic lives.

It is only when we get up close and personal with the collection we truly see the depth and beauty of the material and use of deep and lustrous colours.

Saint Laurent has transported me to a time where rules don’t apply and if your not on the guest list then you really don’t matter.

Sass and Bide Fall 2017

This collection is most indicative of Sass and Bides essence. They drew inspiration from the Hotel Okura in Tokyo, and this is evident in the flowing silk prints. There is something very fresh and clean about the white silks with the added delicate prints.

Sass and Bide have always had a fun party feel to their designs and this collection has just those elements in it especially in their black pieces by adding these gold elements, which brings the garments to life. This was a collection of 2 definite vibes both of which were executed well.

The Oscars 2017

What an interesting night, from Emma Stone winning Best Actress to the LaLa Land being called out for best picture maybe the fashion was reflecting the night.
When we saw this years stars take to the Red Carpet for the globes the lack of imagination or gold lace was every where, now fast forward to the Oscars and we saw a lot more originality. 

I will start by adding Jessica Biel, I adored her in this Kaufman Franco gown but it’s the Tiffany & co necklace that really made the look come together .


And of course we must give a nod to the winner of the Best actress Emma Stone in this 1920’s flapper style gown.


And keeping on that theme Olivia Cupla killed it in this Marchesa gown.

The girl who stole the night for me both at the Oscars and at the Vanity Fair party was Emma Roberts and as for that firey red hair she looked every inch the Hollywood Star and to that is what the Oscars are about.

When it comes to award season there is always one lady who stands out and nails it every time and I really thought it was going to be Michelle Williams but I wasn’t overly wowed by here although her and Bizzy Philips were the most adorable pair over this award season.

Now back to my point of the overall Award season best dressed has to go to Taraji P Henson!! I thought she oozed glamour and was spot on every time and her Oscar look in this navy velvet Alberta Ferretti gown … just wow!

Some of the gowns were on the sexy side for the Oscars .. Jennifer I’m looking at you โ˜บ๏ธ

And speaking of unusual Oscar looks, I loved this Calvin Klein gown Naomi Harris wore and those shoes ๐Ÿ˜. She then slipped into a Grecian style gown for the Vanity fair party.

And of course the Vanity Fair party was where the real fashion came alive such stars as Kate Hudson really earned their fashion stripes last night. 



There was one lady that I was really impressed with and that was Lily Collins, I really feel that sometimes she’s made look older than she is by some of the choices she has gone with in the past but this look is fun, sexy and very polished and big thumbs up for me.

Until next year folks ๐Ÿฅ‚

Sag Awards 2017

Dior was certainly a favourite with the celebs last night at the Sag awards as 3 of my top 9 (I know an odd number) were wearing Dior.
Let’s kick off with Kirsten Dunst who would never normally wow me on the red carpet but she looked so angelic and graceful in this sheer white Dior gown.


From one blonde to the next, Kate Hudson looked ravishing in this black Dior with her hair swept back Kate for me always understands what it takes to walk a red carpet I am rarely disappointed and this time she knocks it outside of the park by finishing her look with the dark lip.


My last Dior pick of the night goes to Natalie Portman. Maternity wear is so tricky and can end up being a complete disaster but I feel Dior got it right with this very regal gown. Natalie recently played the part of the quintessential lady Jackie O and I feel she is doing her character justice my wearing such a gown.


I was really shocked to see Salma Hayek on a worst dressed list in this calming yellow Gucci gown. Salma of course would support her husband and wear a Gucci gown and I think this colour looks incredible with her dark hair and skin tone and what really makes it very special is the dusty pink finishes.

This lady is very rarely not on my best dressed and that is Giuliana Rancic and here is why… she respects the red carpet! Giuliana has been reporting for E! News and the Fashion Police for years and she understands and respects what the red carpet stands for and she is always immaculately turned out and so she is again in this Yousef Aljasmi gown. She finished her look with her blonde hair with a slight wave.


Michelle Williams has become the “Darling” of Hollywood she is just so sweet and when she became the muse of Louis Vuitton I knew she would never have a bad red carpet moment. In saying that Michelle always delighted before joining forces with LV.


Kerry Washington made it onto my best dressed and I’m still looking at the image going but do I love it? I’m not normally a fan of Roberto Cavalli but Kerry just looks so beautiful and I’m not sure if it’s just her beauty that has made me out her on the list or if I actually like the gown either way she made the cut and she is by far one of the most beautiful women in the world.


Ok so this is my number 1 best dressed lady by far. I salute you Taraji P Henson in this Reem Acra gown. I mean come on girl you are killing it!! This has the right amount of demure with a pitch of sexy and a whole lot of elegance. You can truly tell that Taraji feels empowered in this Reem Acra gown and rightly so, there were women half her age on that carpet who weren’t half as beautiful or fierce as she was. She deserves a standing ovation ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

It was all about the couples last night we saw Chrissy Teigan (wearing Dion Lee) and John legend killing it, but not to be out shun we saw Sofia and her handsome husband loving make their way inside.


But it was all about girl power as we saw the girls support each other on the red carpet.


To find out more about my best dressed designer Reem Acra check out my article I posted this morning where I gave you a more in depth look at the designer.

Ralph and Russo

There are mixed feelings about this English brand for various reason none of which I care about. I like what I like and I like this Couture collection.

In an interview co-founder Tamara Ralph said “Often we get orders via Whatโ€™s App before models have even left the catwalk.” This is a brand that are taking into consideration their clients super busy lifestyles which we all know in the luxury industry that if you don’t go above and beyond there is no hope for your brand lasting especially through adversity.

Once again we are seeing a beautiful dreamy palette and ruffles galore but I still adore this trend because who doesn’t want to feel like a queen for a night.

Chanel Haute Couture ’17

Paris was alive this morning as the ultimate couture label show cased their latest collection. Chanel is Couture when it is not even trying, so it comes as no surprise when Karl puts together this dreamy collection of ostrich feather, belts and sequins who knew such a combination would be so in sync. 

With major side partings and simple makeup this was a real nod to the 20’s.


It was all kinds of fresh and crisp with the bright mirrored back drop that only enhances the collection which is always so meticulously thought out that the surroundings themselves are a how in itself.


And what would a Chanel show be without the classic Chanel tweed suit this will and can be remade time and time again and we would still be in love with it.



Of course the grand finale is what everyone talks about because Karl appears out to greet his Muse of the moment and it is lovely to see that his old Muse Vanessa Paradis daughter has now taken over that title Lily Rose Depp. 
He took great pride in parading the young beauty around in the extravagant pink gown.
