Paris Couture Week F/w 12 has basically ended and it was as beautiful as ever! I really enjoyed most of the collections this season! This couture season was very exciting for several reasons. First off Kimye or Kim Kardashian and Kanye West showed up and showed out by causing mass hysteria and mini pandemonium during the three or four days they were in Paris. Apparently even a child got pushed around in the mayhem. They even pissed off some editors and the like for showing up to the Stephane Rolland show one hour late. They were so late that they barely made it to the finale. SMH! Then we saw an overabundance of V-necks and cape dresses on the runway. I think those are two trends I can live with.
This fall, October 4th, you will be able to buy an accessories collection from Vogue editor Anna Dello Russo at H&M. This is great news for those that think she is a fashion icon…which she is. I mean who doesn’t want affordable jewelry and accessories designed by someone like her?!?!? Anyway. This video from H&M is supposed to introduce us to her, her inspiration, and her enviable closet.
INC Editor at Large Anna Dello Russo shows us a behind the scenes look at the new INC International Concepts collection. This is a really cool video. I can’t wait to see what she does with this line since it has been one of my favorite Macy’s lines for a while now.
Now this is how you do a masquerade party. Check out Anna Dello Russo getting dressed for French Vogue’s 90th Anniversary Bal Masque on Tommy Ton’s site, Jak & Jil.
YESTERDAY ANNA DELLO RUSSO HAD ASKED ME IF I’D LIKE TO JOIN HER AT HER SUITE AT THE RITZ AS SHE GOT READY FOR THE MASQUERADE BALL CELEBRATING VOGUE PARIS’ 90TH ANNIVERSARY. I THOUGHT WHY NOT AND I COULD NEVER SAY NO TO ANNA OF COURSE. IT’S NO SURPRISE THAT WHEN ANNA HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO DRESS UP, SHE WILL GO ALL OUT. FUNNILY ENOUGH, INSTEAD OF THE TAKING THE PREDICTABLE BORING ROUTE LIKE MOST PEOPLE DO WHEN THEY’RE INVITED TO A MASQUERADE BALL, ANNA WENT TO HER FRIEND, PETER DUNDAS, AND ASKED HIM TO CUSTOM DESIGN HER AN EXTRAVAGANT PUCCI BALL GOWN TO WEAR. TO MAKE THINGS EVEN MORE OVER THE TOP, SHE REQUESTED THE FEATHERED HEADPIECE FROM GARETH PUGH TO TOP OFF HER LACE MASK AND WHITE WIG. SHE TOLD ME HER INSPIRATION WAS LADY GAGA FOR THIS LOOK. I JUST HAVE TO SAY THANK GOD ANNA HAS FUN WITH FASHION BECAUSE SERIOUSLY WHO STILL DOES? ADR FOREVER!!!
ADR styling can do no wrong in my eyes. She really knows how to dress a woman. This editorial from the September issue of Vogue Nippon is fabulous. I love the retro late 70s vibe that these pictures portray. Camel coat season is definitely approaching. Are you ready? Photos from Fashion Foie Gras.
