Would you wear this dress?

Jun16

 

I am in love with this dress from the Fall '09 Chanel runway show in Paris! I'm not sure how I feel about this headdress though. The look was inspired by Moscow, and  I get that fashion shows are supposed to be all about fantasy and grandeouir, but I think the headdress completely detracts from this awesome, amazing sparkly dress! What do you think? Would you wear this dress?

Miley Cyrus and Max Azaria Team Up for Wal-Mart Fashion Line

Jun10

In a statement, Wal-Mart said the line will reflect the "rock-n-roll roots" of 16-year-old Cyrus, who is most well-known for her starring role in Disney's hit TV show Hannah Montanna and the accompyning albums.

 "I love creating looks that are all about personal expression and individuality," Cyrus said in a statement.

Let's hope that Azaria, who has dressed the pop star for several recent red carpet events, does most of the designing while Cyrus is just the muse.

The line is expected to hit Wal-Mart stores in August, just in time for back-to-school shopping, and Wal-Mart also is sponsoring Cyrus' North America concert tour that starts in September. A match made in total branding heaven!

I'm totally for using faux fur in fashion, but there's a line. What do you think...would you wear these fur-decorated shoes that were seen on the runway at the Miu Miu Fall 2009 show?


Check Out This Website: Hel-Looks

May30

Hel-Looks is based on a simple idea: Find people wearing interesting outfits on the street and photograph them. A simple yet ingenious idea. Liisa Jokinen and Sampo Karjalainen of Helenski, Finland had just that idea, and since then their website has gotten international attention. From the conservatively dressed to the totally off-kilter and out-there fashions, Hel-looks is an addicting site that you can easily get lost in. Some of my favorite (and more tame) looks are pictured above. Check it out here: http://www.hel-looks.com/

Celebrating Barbie's 50th Anniversary: Half a Century of Inspiration and Controversy

May30

"Over the course of 50 years, Barbie has enraged feminists, beguiled little girls, and built an empire," according to The Boston Globe. Barbie has undergone numerous transformations since she was first introduced in 1959, many of them controversial. From her teenage-looking pregnant friend Midge to early '90's Teen Talk Barbie who told girls that "math is hard" and that she loved to shop, Barbie has both inspired and discouraged little girls to be the best versions of themselves that they can be.

If you want to know more, The Boston Globe wrote a great article on March 5th about the empire of Barbie that asks the question: "Does Barbie Still Matter?" It can be found here http://www.boston.com/lifestyle/fashion/articles/2009/03/05/forever_young/.
