Happy Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day Dress List

In celebration of Saint Valentine’s Day tomorrow and the beautiful New York Fashion Week collections being shown right now, here are some of my favourite looks which would be just perfect for this romantic occasion.

With a couple of days remaining during New York Fashion Week, it appears red will play an important role for the upcoming Fall season.

From Diane von Furstenberg to Victoria Beckham, Monique Lhuillier, Thakoon, DKNY and more, many have caught a little scarlet fever.

Paint The Town Red… not a colour for the faint of heart, red can give that unmistakable va-va-voom.

The colour of love, passion and seduction – red is the prefect choice for a romantic date this Valentine’s Day.

Some red hot inspiration…

Happy Valentine’s Day for tomorrow xx

NY Fashion Week

My Dream Fall Wardrobe…

 

New York Fashion Week has come and gone… tear! Luckily there is still London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks to look forward to (including my favourite Chanel!).

New York Fashion Week left us with so many delectable looks it is almost impossible to ingest them all!  From Michael Kors (who is celebrating his 30th Anniversary) to Marchesa, Oscar De La Renta, Rodarte, Anna Sui, Jil Stuart and more – there are so many extraordinary collections to devour.

The too-die-for white feather skirt, delicate top with silver sequins and fur head piece by Oscar De La Renta (pictured line 2, 4th image) is elegance and sweet seduction personified! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the head piece!  And how adorable are the animal prints at Jil Stuart – especially the foxes below (pictured line 3, 2nd image)? Not to mention, how exactly does Anna Sui always seem to create the perfect balance of feminine charm with an ‘i’m with the band’, effortless, cool aesthetic? Michael Kors, Erin Fethertson and Alice & Olivia also captured my heart with some exquisite pieces I cannot wait to see next Fall.

Some of my favourite looks from NY Fashion Wk…

P.S. Coincidentally, every one of my favourite looks from New York Fashion Week are dresses! Dresses are my absolute fashion true love! So I guess I will be investing in tights… xx

Best Dressed List

The Screen Actors Guild Awards

And The Best Dressed Goes To…

Hailee Steinfeld! The young starlet was exquisitely fresh, fun and feminine in a gown from Prada’s Spring / Summer 2011 collection.

In a look that many would have found difficult to wear – vibrant pink, orange and black horizontal stripes – Steinfeld pulled it off in a spectacular fashion. André Leon Talley, of Vogue US, agreed declaring Steinfeld as his best dressed of the night. Of her look he said: “What made it so right for the teenager was the just-out-of-bed tousled hair (the style of the evening) looking so natural on her, deft makeup, and no bling. She didn’t try too hard.”
