Florence Welsh To Design For Topshop

Since Kate Moss and Topshop separated their fashion ways there have been quite a few other women who wanted to design for the high street store. Among the latest is the singer Florence Welsh. The 24-year-old is planning to create an inexpensive collection inspired by her own quirky style. (Just like Kate Moss did.)

Oooh La La: Sparkles! Dolce & Gabbana 2011

Lace has never looked lovelier! Dolce & Gabbana's Spring 2011 Collection paid homage to the beautiful Sicilian white lace. Lace dresses embellished with sparkling, beaded embroideries of crystals and rhinestones, never looked so exquisite. (thanks Vogue for the photos!)

In Remembrance: Chanel Honors Amy Winehouse, 2007

Karl Lagerfeld once called her his muse, Roberto Cavalli went crazy for her, and Louis Vuitton reported paid her $1m for a single appearance at a show during 2008 Paris Fashion Week. Jonathan Kelsey designed his ‘Amy’ shoe, and PPQ teamed up with her on a capsule collection.

The new Brigitte Bardot : Karl Lagerfeld paid direct homage to her at the 2007 London Chanel show. Models strutted down the runway wearing impressively vertiginous up-dos and heavily kohl-rimmed eyes. When asked about his muse, the designer announced that Winehouse is ”the new Brigitte Bardot”: gap-toothed, boundary breaking and most importantly beehived.

I truly loved her music and the sultry-smooth voice that made her a star. But the troubled life she lead was no joke, and she sadly became famous more for her faults than her talent. It's sad when people make decisions that eventually end up killing them. She had family and friends who tried to help her, but with most addicts, she chose not to listen. RIP Amy. You will be missed.

Is Wet Hair Becoming a Trend ?

Recently I have seen countless photos of celebrities, including Mary-Kate and Ashley, running about the cities doing who knows with an extremely wet head. If you are on your way to a hair appointment, ok, I get that, but I'm wondering if it's going to become something greater later? Do you all hop out of the shower and right to your car? Or do you make sure your hair is dry and shiny?

Alexander McQueen Resort 2012

The new collection of Alexander McQueen for this upcoming fall is simply like none other that you have ever seen. The designs of the clothing make you think of a young woman that lived sometime during the 1930’s when there were wars happening in the Middle East. The collection consists of various khaki type outfits including chestnut, navy and black.

The pants are the boyfriend cut style or dress type pants that you could wear to work or a casual party. Several of the pants sets come along with a dress coat or jacket of some sort. Lace skirts, leather, and thin silky blouses are also included in this collection.

The tops and skirts would go great matched along with a coat or some khaki pants. Studded curved high heels will just give the outfits in this collection the finishing touch. Wide belts with several buckles are also included as well. You will find various colors to match; the majority of the belts are made of just regular leather or patent leather to give the outfits that nice pop which will be sure to turn heads!

Chanel Fall 2011 Collection Is Just A Little Bizarre

Ok. So when I think of Chanel, I think of the brand as timeless, classy, and versatile with sophistication and a touch of chic. However, after viewing the photos from the Chanel show, I just find the entire collection bizarre, weird, and I don't understand what Karl Lagerfeld was thinking. I'm not an expert by any means, but I just wish the clothing would have been a little more tasteful for women, instead of sad, dark and weird. However, I think a lot of the clothes are definitely wearable. Tweed and velvet skirt suits trimmed with fur, embroidered and embellished with beads looked a bit dull but they had that attractive vintage feel that I really liked. Besides, they are classic and can be perfect for many occasions.

(my favorite "look" from the show: Wednesday Addams and Taylor Momson's love child)
