Le Carnival in Paris


If the pope was a woman by Vivienne Westwood

Today was a carnival in Paris, specifically painted eyebrow day. It was quite amusing to see what fun ideas the designers came up with. Aside from that Christian Dior pulled off an AMAZING show with very dreamy clothing. All images courtesy of Style.com.

Le Geekiness in Paris


Beauty and the Geek

I have discovered the best bad show ever. EVER. It's called Beauty and the Geek, executive produced by Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg, the guys behind punk'd. It's about 8 'geeky' boys who have to live in a house with 8 'beautiful' women. They are then paired up and have to complete challenges together. The geeks learn not to be afraid of women and the beauties learn how to read. Each week one team is eliminated until one team wins 250,000 dollars. It. Is. Awesome. Click above to watch an episode. I take no responsibility if you get hooked.

Geekiness was the running theme on the runways in Paris today as Martin Margiela's rendition of Star Wars faced off against Undercover's inner Trekkie. It was pretty heated and both designers were spectacular, however it was Viktor & Rolf who took the cake with...like head gear or something. The day was not in vain though, since I found a blanket, perfectly cosy for the fall. All images courtesy of Style.com.

Le Disco in Paris


Disco by Balmain


If I could I would always wear flared pants. They are just so much more flattering on women with hips than skinny jeans. And maybe my wish will come true thanks to Balmain's disco fever on the runway, including a series of neat low-cut black flared pants. Sigh. Paris is definitely off to a good start.

Le End of MRTWF2007FW


Hot by Versace


A very sleek week (hehe) has come to end in Milan. Next week we are off to Belle Paris and I cannot wait to go home and see what all the designers there have to offer for Fall. On the last day in Milan I picked up a couple of bits and pieces from the last shows and discovered Luisa Beccaria who I really liked. All images courtesy of Style.com.

Le Vogue-Control Issue


Runway shot of the Dolce & Gabbana show


I was really excited this month when I received my issue of Vogue because there was a headline called "I'm Worth It: Taking Control of Your Look and Life" on the cover. I thought it would be an interesting in-depth article on taking control of your life, all philosophical and stuff. It wasn't. It was just a photo spread on dresses and anoraks at a construction site. So that you look like you are in control while in reality you are like, dieing inside. That's okay though, I still love my Vogue and they had other smart articles to make up for it. French Vogue is offering desktop pictures on its website for those interested (http://www.vogue.fr/fond_ecran). I love the pink fluffy dress, it is very much in the spirit of spring.

Anyhoo, time to put the spotlight back on Milan. I love love loved Emporio Armani's fall collection, it was just a feast for the eyes. All images courtesy of Style.com.

PS.
Sigh, so Studio 60 has probably been cancelled, but at this point it is for the better. They changed the story and it became predictable and painful rather than the excellent show it once was. And on Britney...I just feel really sorry for her. Does anyone else think she should get back together with KFed? He's taking care of the kids now, went to visit her in rehab today and seems to be the only one who can kind of control her. I don't know, maybe everyone was wrong about him the whole time? What do you think, y'all?

Le Milan RTW Fall 2007 Fashion Week


Fabulous pink trench by D&G

Oh Milano, Milano! Italian Fashion Week has begun and how. I was a glutton when it came to Alberta Ferretti, Bottega Veneta and Giorgio Armani. Everything on the runways over the past two days was so smooth and shiny, almost fluid in materials and cuts. Bottega Veneta seemed paid tribute to Audrey Hepburn with his classy collection.
