Feast your eyes on this: CHANEL Paris-Bombay Métiers d'Art 2011/12

I'm so excited Fashion Week starts next week and I can't stop watching fashion videos. I came across the Chanel Paris-Bombay show, which debuted in Paris last month at the Grand Palais. Every piece set my senses off,  sight, smell, taste and feel.  What a magnificent display. Whats more amazing is that Karl Lagerfeld has never been to India, after the show he stated, "it is much more inspiring not to got to places then to go."

Here's a a trailer from the show and a few of my favorite looks.

Back En Vogue 1920's: Meet Desha Butler

A couple of weeks ago  I styled a 1920's type photoshoot with my favorite photographer Jeffrey Fowler. Meet model Desha Butler a 5'8 beauty with cheekbones, that would make Tyra go "fierce". Lets not forgot her legs are to die for. Desha has been making a splash across the DMV appearing in local Ads, runway shows, magazines and promoting energy drinks. I loved how she got into character, playing the irreverent flapper of the 20's, a new liberated woman with sex appeal. 

Look at those cheekbones

And the Award goes to Gucci

Last night was the 2012 Golden Globe awards. As glamorous as the actors looked in their ensemble I usually pay attention to the designers behind the gowns. My  award for designer of the evening goes to Gucci. The majority of the dresses came from the Gucci Première collection, which fabrics and construction behind each piece are just mind blowing. These are my crème de la crème...

Sleek and sexy, Evan Rachel wood took a refreshing plunge in this scaled mermaid look,  pulled off with sequins and feathers...all my favorite things. This midnight green dress is embroidered with overlapping fish scale paillettes and ostrich plumes, flowing into a full skirt of iridescent feathers.

Jessica Alba presented wearing a Gucci pale lilac Première silk charmeuse embroidered evening gown. The dress features crystal encrusted organza petals, light crystal drops and a high-waisted sash that drapes into a pleated train.
