Recently I’ve been seen LOTS of runway pictures, and I thought I could share them with you. The spring 2013 collections were very intricate, some were hot, some where not.
When you think of the word ‘runway’ with all the big names, you instantly think… Elegant? Refined? Posh? But is it really the case with Donatella Versace? I think the collection says it all.
I saw lots of golds, blacks, some neutrals, and some neon. Who would’ve guessed? Not me.
Versace said that she had been inspired by Le Centorial, the glass, iron and steel domed building in the heart of Paris.
Probably my favourite out of the whole collection!
The white mink coat (above), which, reworked with mirror, python and crystal embroidery, took 500 hours to construct. But 500 hours for a single jacket? That sounds museum-worthy rather than real fashion. But Versace insists there are no plans to open a Versace museum. “We keep one of every item for our archives, ” she says, ” but while I love museums, I prefer to see my clothes on living bodies”.
‘It’s all about gold,’ said Donatella Versace immediately before her Atelier Versace show kicked off the spring/summer haute couture collections in Paris. And indeed it was – from the 24-carat pinstripe patch-worked into narrow–waisted, strong-shouldered jackets and cigarette-leg trousers, to the talon heels of shoes. More precious metal came in the form of gleaming oversized epaulettes and exaggerated cuffs that were part must-have accessory, part weaponry, and the house’s signature metal mesh. It’s safe to say that Versace chainmail is as razzle-dazzle spectacular now as it ever was.
ON THE MAKEUP:
“Donatella was really obsessed with a neon green metallic that’s in the shoes and in the clothing – really lime, hot green metallic,” explained McGrath Sunday night backstage. “So we added just a little strip of eyeliner to the outside of the eyes as a line and a little bit on the inner corners.”
So I did like the detailing, but is it something I’d wear? Hahaha no. Do tell me guys what you think about Versace newest collection!
As you may all know, I am entirely obsessed with the TV show ‘Gossip Girl’. It was my favourite, is my favourite, will always be my favourite. Apart from the drama, I love the styling of characters, mostly in events. So, I’ve gathered pictures of my favourite dresses/outfits of the entire series!
So, this is a dress by Peter Pilotto, Fall 2012. I love the embellishment of the dress and the neck detailing. I honestly, fell in love with it before the episode was even aired!
This dress was worn by Blair, in the season where they had to go to Paris. It’s a Red Valentino pink animal print chiffon dress. However, may I also include that, I did not like the Pink+Red combo choice, but the dress is so Old Hollywood glam.
Most of you probably haven’t seen this dress yet, you wanna know why? This episode hasn’t aired yet! Hahaha. Anyways, it’s an embellished powder blue Elie Saab Couture dress.
This dress looks waaay better than the actually picture! This is a Jenny Packham Spring 2012. It was on the first episode of Season 6 (I think).
This outfit really caught my attention. I loved the colours, loved the detailing of it. The gold Emilio Pucci Spring 2010 cropped blazer is AH-MAZINNG! Don’t you agree? How ever, the hairstyle? nu-uh.
This is WOW. Serena (Blake Lively) looks incredibly stunning! The lace detailing is incredibly elegant. It is a no-brainer that this dress is designed by Zuhair Murad for the Ready-to-Wear Fall-winter 2010-2011.
This dress is by Oscar De La Rent for the pre-fall 2012 collection. As always, Oscar de la rent never fails to amaze us. However, the heels? ummm. no.
LOVE this one. I’ve always had a thing for Marchesa’s dresses. Always different, and never the less, elegant. This is by Marchesa for spring 2009.
Hope you enjoyed this little fun post, and do tell me what are your favourite outfits/dresses on gossip girl!
I’m sure you guys heard the name ‘Dita Von Teese’ somewhere. I mean, I sure did. But I never took the chance to actually know who she is. As far as I concerned she was a lady who made makeup! Only to find out today that, that’s not all that is to her.
Apart from her makeup, she also designs lingerie, is a burlesque dancer, a pin-up model, and a fashion icon!
After watching a LOT of her interviews, I realised how down-to-earth she is. Basically she does her own makeup, hair and outfits for all her shows! When asked about the secret of her skin-care routine, she said, ‘No sun, no cigarettes.’
Her entire life is based on old Hollywood glamour, which I have to admit is extravagant.
She was inspired by starlets like Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, etc. She is all about creating this picture of glamour and creation and creating an image that is larger than life.
Her figure is more of an hourglass shape, which I find absolutely beautiful by all means!
She is never spotted outside her house without her signature red pout,winged eyeliner, and a vintage item.
I have no idea about you guys, but she’s pretty amazing. I think that she’s one of those rare people who don’t belong to 2012, and she deserves more than what she gets as a lady making it in this tough and fake world. Truly inspiring.
True sexiness has many facets. The elements include things like confidence, strength, intelligence, and humor. – Dita Von Teese.
