1 Beautiful Fashion Moment…
A Volcanic Catwalk At Chanel
As many of you may know, Chanel is my fashion true love. It is perfection in the form of a delicate evening gown; immaculately tailored suit or one of the astonishingly beautiful 2.55 quilted handbags. Chanel always surpasses my wildest fashion dreams.
From a giant lion to striking iceberg in previous shows, the Chanel set can be just as intoxicating as the collection itself. However, the Fall 2011/12 show took this to a new high. A volcanic catwalk! Models emerged from the smoke, and walked amongst volcanic rocks. The charcoal toned tweed and darker mood to the collection, were perfectly accentuated by the brooding surrounds. Chanel perfection at its finest! A selection of looks from the Chanel Fall collection are featured below…

NOT YET CONFIRMED: Galliano’s Dior Replacement
There is still much speculation over who will replace John Galliano at Dior. While Harper’s Bazaar Editor-At-Large Derek Blasberg “confirmed” Riccardo Tisci’s appointment as Creative Director for Christian Dior; it’s still an official “no comment” from the LVMH Group. But Tisci does have Anna Dello Russo’s vote, who said: “I think Riccardo deserves the [Dior] position. He’s becoming a very mature artist. For me, Givenchy was the best show of the season so far.”
Meanwhile, other speculation includes, Alber Elbaz of Lanvin taking the Dior position, while Jason Wu would replace him at Lanvin. Marc Jacobs has taken himself out of the running at the Louis Vuitton show, by saying “No! I haven’t been asked”. Only time will tell who will become the Creative Director for Christian Dior, but I cannot wait to hear!
Kate Moss Smokin’ Hot (Literally!) at Louis Vuitton
When Kate Moss took to the catwalk at Louis Vuitton in Paris under the helm of Marc Jacobs, something dramatic was bound to occur. Moss walked the catwalk with a cigarette in hand, dramatically blowing smoke as she closed the runway. The collection which had themes of fetishism, crimes and scandals, certainly lived up to its concept! There were lots of leather, bustiers and handcuffs swinging off handbags for this collection. Also returning to the Louis Vuitton runway: Naomi Campbell, Amber Valetta and Carolyn Murphy.
McQueen For The Royal-Wedding?
Kate Middleton’s wedding dress designer has had the world’s media in a flurry. Who will the designer be? If current rumours are true, Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen may have the top honour. US Elle magazine’s Creative Director Joe Zee, tweeted: “Kate Middleton, I love you but if you don’t have Sarah Burton design your wedding dress, you’re making a big mistake. HUGE.” The new Fall McQueen collection does look perfect for a Princess! Devine shapes, texture and embroidery make this collection soar like a fairytale coming to life.
Blake Lively For Chanel
Blake Lively’s beautiful Chanel ads are slowly being released to the media. As the face of Chanel’s Mademoiselle Handbag line, Lively looks devine with some of the essential pieces for Spring.
