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

Christian Dior Fall 2011 Couture Collection : The Sad Clown?

Sending in the clowns at Dior?! Who is next? We knew the party was over for John Galliano, and now it looks like the festivities might be dying down at the legendary house – at least for the moment. Though I didn’t have very high expectations for the Dior Couture show without Galliano at the … Continue reading Christian Dior Fall 2011 Couture Collection : The Sad Clown?

Dior Fall 2011 Bags

I know Galliano did not foresee his public meltdown or that this collection would be his swan song at Dior but I still can’t help being slightly disappointed by the lack of new bag styles. Dior’s Fall 2011 bag collection was mostly a re-issuing of past season styles in different colors – cherry brown, dark … Continue reading Dior Fall 2011 Bags

Natalie Portman in Dior Panarea Bag

Considering she’s the face of the new Miss Dior Cherie fragrance, it really should come as no surprise that Natalie Portman sports the French label’s accessories when out and about. Natalie’s a pretty laid back young lady, so it’s nice to see that her accessories, while decidedly luxe, aren’t all bells-and-whistles stuffy. Take, for example, … Continue reading Natalie Portman in Dior Panarea Bag
