Florence Welch stepped out for last night’s Museum of Natural History gala in NYC wearing a museum-worthy Valentino gown. The singer is often seen in designs from the Italian fashion house, and it’s no wonder why. Her luxe boho aesthetic fits in perfectly with Maria Grazia and Pierpaolo’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection, one inspired appropriately enough by opera.
The Spring 2014 runways were coated with jewels – at least the leg wear was! The sparkle came in all shapes and sizes from Simone Rocha’s pearl-embellished knee-highs to Tom Ford’s full-body crystallization. Admittedly, these are looks that require a grand forum, so I’ve picked out some pieces that are less editorial and more everyday.
Calling all my Dallas-based Snobs! This Friday, two of my favorite people are coming together at one of my favorite stores. The lovely China Chow is co-hosting a champagne-filled soiree at Forty Five Ten honoring the equally lovely Derek Lam.
Out with the pure white lace and in with myriad color! While the elements of intricate lace still abound, Valentino has traveled to faraway lands (at least, metaphorically speaking) and has come back with the urge to channel an exotic opera diva, timeless and transcendent.
Some of us never really leave high school, or at least never shed the nostalgia that sticks around long after. But when Viktor & Rolf think back to post-elementary education, it takes on new meaning altogether.
