The Color of the Season: Seeing Red

Red, the color of prosperity and happiness in Chinese culture (traditional Chinese brides wear red, not white!), has lit up the fashion world. The bright pigment has been splashed across celeb style, street style, and even menswear. It was the most popular shade on the red carpet at the Golden Globes, and I’m not talking … Continue reading The Color of the Season: Seeing Red

Christian Dior Spring 2013 Collection: Raf Raises the Bar

It certainly didn’t take long for Raf Simons to find his groove at Christian Dior – and who in fashion can say they’re surprised? With equal measures of modernist creativity and respect for the brand and its old master, Raf is the man to usher in an invigorating new era at Dior. The new Bar … Continue reading Christian Dior Spring 2013 Collection: Raf Raises the Bar

The Golden Globes: Roger Vivier Soiree

From Jessica Alba‘s whimsical “poodle” clutch (favorite!) to Anne Hathaway‘s sophisticated satin, it’s clear that no Hollywood A-lister dared to appear without a Vivier dangling from their manicured hands. The gown of the night was definitely Julianne Moore, though, if merely for the fact that she rang “Tom” (you know, as in Ford) and asked … Continue reading The Golden Globes: Roger Vivier Soiree

Primetime Emmy 2012 Awards Trend: Year of Yellow

Forget any ladies in red. At this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards, stars lit up in yellow ignited the red carpet. Seriously, I have never seen so many yellow dresses! The sometime-quirky, always-perky hue is clearly having a major moment in the sun. Julianne Moore looked chic and stunning in Dior Couture; with long sleeves and a full … Continue reading Primetime Emmy 2012 Awards Trend: Year of Yellow

Olsenmania: It Takes Two to Make a Thing Go Right

They have been spurring and standing up to trends for years now (despite the fact they’re only 25), and I am currently major style-crushing on the Olsen twins. Their look is effortlessly laidback yet calculated to accentuate their petite frames (yes, I do feel kinship due to our mutual height – or lack thereof!). I … Continue reading Olsenmania: It Takes Two to Make a Thing Go Right

The New Look: The Sleeker Shape of Things to Come

After many seasons of floppy-schloppy chic, I’m excited to see the commitment to sleek structure from the Parisian houses. The French understand the power of subtlety (perhaps more so than any other breed), and Fall 2012 is going to be one of refinement if they have any say in it! Céline toys with the triangle … Continue reading The New Look: The Sleeker Shape of Things to Come

Paris Mens Fashion Week: Days 3 & 4 (Au Revoir, Mon Petit Ami)

So for my final piece on the third and fourth full days of Paris Fashion Week for men, I figured I’d take a stab at stronger collections. Overall, it was a great season, with a lot of hits, a few poorly-aimed misses, and a need for even more outerwear (not at these shows, but in … Continue reading Paris Mens Fashion Week: Days 3 & 4 (Au Revoir, Mon Petit Ami)

Charlize Theron in Christian Dior: J’Adore Charlize

Just call her Miss Dior. At the premiere of her new film, “Young Adult,” in New York City last week, Charlize Theron stayed dedicated to her tried and true label. If you were the couture fashion house, wouldn’t you want to dress her for every occasion, too? This just goes to show there is nothing … Continue reading Charlize Theron in Christian Dior: J’Adore Charlize

Paris Fashion Week Runway Bags: Part One

A sexy and utterly feminine collection at Nina Ricci. I attended the intimate show on Ave Foch the day I arrived and was immediately taken by the new bags. Ribbon and lace details gorgeously juxtaposed with exotic skins and satins that retained the Nina Ricci ladylike flavor while injecting a much needed modern exuberance.  The … Continue reading Paris Fashion Week Runway Bags: Part One
