Monique Lhuillier gave me a little Art Deco/ Golden Age of Hollywood feel when I looked at her clothes. They were beautiful. I can definitely see them on the red carpet at some function, but the styling of the accessories threw me off. The shoes were great but the fedora just seemed completely out of place.
Vena Cava was a great collection for that edgy Rihanna type girl. You could definitely see a lot of influences mixed up in the collection. I saw 80s bodcon shapes mixed with 20s resort wear. I also saw dark and colorful touches mixed with graphic patterns, African tribal color schemes and safety pin camisoles.
Is Prabal Gurung fashion’s next superstar? Some say so and I can see why. The fabrics and draping were amazing. The pictures made me wish I was there so I could touch the clothes. The oversized bow was a common accent on his pieces, too. I think a lot of his pieces could be swapped between Ms. Uptown and her little sister Miss Downtown. The question is, who is willing to share?
Gwen Stefani is my girl. I have been in love with No Doubt since their first cd, which I may or may not have had on cassette. SMH! Anyway! L.A.M.B. aka Love Angel Music Baby is always a fantastic and surprising collection to me because you know it is going to be very Gwen-like, and you never know what she is in to at the time. I can’t keep up with her looks. Is she a 40s pin-up blond or a Japanese Barbie doll. Who knows or cares as long as the clothes look good, right? I loved the fact that she used a lot of ethnic models, and I totally want those gray harem pants with the pockets on the side. Another thing I loved was the fact that this was the first collection I saw that looked distinctly Spring-like.
