Gorgeous In Gucci…

Glamorous, Striking, Powerful, Sexy = Gucci 

Lara Stone looks spectacular in Gucci as she graces the cover of Vogue Paris February 2011 issue…

Wearing my favourite dress from the Gucci Spring / Summer 2011 collection; Lara Stone was photographed by Mario Sorrenti posing in front of a gorgeous flower garden. With popping purple eye shadow, pouting red lips and her tousled blonde hair; Stone looks the epitome of Spring goddess. The dress; Stone; and cover design; are simply divine! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS COVER!

Gucci Spring / Summer 2011

Opening with an electric bolt of colour (in the form of an orange blazer, violet strapless top, gold belt and green trousers); Gucci’s S/S11 collection saw a return to high voltage glamour. The collection exuded a spirit reminiscent of Yves Saint Laurent.“I pushed the accelerator on the provocation“, said Frida Giannini of the collection.

Splitting the collection into three distinct segments, it featured jewel colour combinations, camel and black before finishing with bright tribal inspired cocktail dresses. Dresses were woven with leather while jewels and feathers added a spectacular dash of detailing. It was glamorous tribal energy at its best! Dark orange, gold, emerald and black made for an impressive ending statement to the collection.

A Sunday Dose Of Chanel…

Indulge Your Sunday With Some Stunning Chanel Perfection…

Embellished, intense and exquisitely beautiful; Chanel is pure luxury in its most decedent form.

Tonight is the Golden Globes and as celebrities frantically prepare themselves to dazzle on the red carpet, I have chosen a selection of my favourite Chanel evening gowns to celebrate.  I would happily (ok, make that ecstatically) wear any of these divine creations to this event… and I am particularly partial to Carmen Kass’ billowing apricot dress composed entirely of feathers (pictured above centre). Now that would be a red carpet moment!

The Chanel Spring / Summer 2011 collection took its inspiration from the Last Year at Marienbad, a film from the early sixties in which Chanel herself originally designed the costumes for Delphine Seyrig (the leading lady). From feathers to sequins; ribbon to lace; the detail, shape and innate beauty was simply extraordinary.
