Project Runway Finale- What a Shocker!!!


So guess what? Project Runway finale was last night… it was two hours, Jessica Simpson was the guest judge, and oh, shocker, Mondo did NOT win.

I was a surprised and shocked  when Heidi announced Gretchen was the winner. But I mean, weren’t we all!?!?

When they presented all their collections it was quite obvious that Mondo’s collection was the only one that could be described as a fashion show. He had the drama, the accessories, the colors, the prints… It was funky and yet wearable…

Gretchen’s on the other side was kind of  “blah”. Yes the jewelry was great, but she had it made for her. The colours were very earthy and a bit boring, and everything looked like a safari Barbie outfits…

It is interesting also to see Mondo’s reaction to the situation. He call’s Gretchen “mundane”… see for yourself on the Lifetime website where are designers’ videoblogs are posted.

What do you think? Was Micheal Kors right that Gretchen is what is coming up and trendy?

Halloween in Style


It is that time of the year when we are all opening our closets and trying to figure out the best possible outfit to use as a Halloween costume, without having to go to a party store and brave through the sea of polyester sequenced tackiness that they offer.

Here are some suggestions for gorgeous chic Halloween ideas:

Sexy Pixie

DIANE VON FURSTENBERG Yadira tulle wrap dress

 

Grecian Goddess

HALSTON HERITAGE  Asymmetric lamé gown

 

Lady is a Vamp

RICK OWENS Backless satin gown

 

All you need now is some killer shoes, amazing make up and good friends to share the night with!

Kanye’s New Visual Masterpiece


You have probably heard about Runaway in the past week or so. If you haven’t well, get ready to spend 30 minutes engulfed in a visually stimulating dreamlike video fantasy of a man who falls in love with a fallen phoenix. The cinematography is fabulous! The music a pure example of Kanye’s genius, and I am not even his biggest fan… but I can definitely see the art in it.

Runaway is definitely out there with other music and visual masterpieces such as Thriller and Purple Rain. It has a ton of references to pop-culture and the more you watch it, the greater it becomes.

The fallen phoenix is played by the former Victoria Secret Anged Selita Ebanks. The whole time she is in an incredible feather ensemble. The styling in the whole video is impressive from Kanye’s awesome blazers,  to the great dinner scene and the set up of the table. It is great to see artists pushing the boundaries of beauty.
