Hello, goodbye

Last day on my magazine today until two weeks of fashion work experience... Going to a big warehouse party tonight too so DOUBLE excited!! One last word of the day for Elie Saab's Spring 2010 Couture show. It's a full blown, ruffled-adorned love affair of romance that this year's couture designers are swooning over... And with aubergine punching through delicious ice-creams hues of summer yellow, mint green and blush, this is one of my favourite shows so far. SO pretty!

Read Dolly Jones from Vogue online's show report for Elie Saab* here:

"ELIE SAAB's show today was an array of flesh, cappuccino and shadowy grey shades and washed-out pastels – for a collection of the almost all full-length gowns which are really his forte: dresses for starry galas and weddings.

This collection majored in intricate lace creations and was a full-on, romantic, billowing display of what he does so well – wonderfully beautiful, feminine evening gowns. In the current climate his fans might like to see him develop in some other directions, perhaps using the couture techniques in different ways to try tailoring or daywear.

However, there is no doubt that women both like and trust his dresses – famously well-fitting, they are very light but have invisible structure. Held up by sexy shoe string straps they boast incredibly clever construction to give the superstar effect."

"I just love how Atlanta always combines colors, prints and textures in an outfit and makes it look so put together without trying too hard." {Francheska, Fashion Canvas} My sentiments exactly. I loooove this style!

I have a dress just like this leopard print one that I wore for new year's eve... Perhaps it's a little too ridiculously short for day time, but worn with a denim jacket, leather boots and a slew of bejewelled accessories at night, this could be the start of a beautiful relationship. (And hey, I’ll still look like a scruff bag but then at least then there will be a reason behind it!)

Ps. Party last night was ace, although I barely made it. Not even a free bar of champagne is appealing after 13 hours of constant brain whirring. Booo. (Although I did get my bum papped when I walked in! Ha. They were looking for Jamie Campbell Bower...)

Red head

I'm getting nostalgic for warm, light evenings. Rosé in the park, picnics, hand stands, daisy chains, bike rides, barbeques, and day trips to the beach... I reckon some multicoloured sunglasses like these would coax in the summer in no time. Non?

Couture Cometh

By Lauren Milligan 26 January 2010

“CHRISTIAN DIOR took centre stage at couture week yesterday, with a collection of dresses designed to make you sigh. Never content to languish in familiar sartorial surroundings, Galliano took his Dior girls to the horses this season with a dressage-inspired offering of jackets and skirts followed by an array of lace and satin, which as last season boasted just a hint of 1947's New Look.

GIORGIO ARMANI also showed his Privé collection yesterday, offering his usual brand of red carpet elegance bathed in sparkling moonlight. The lunar motif recurred throughout the show - in the palette, the jewellery and the oversized set - and shapes were sharp and streamlined.

JOSEPHUS THIMISTER’S Bloodshed And Opulence collection was, as the title suggests, more than just pretty dresses. Inspired by Russian military uniforms - and moved by society's greatest concerns - the collection challenged the very notion of couture itself in a palette of army green, shimmering red and bloodstained white.

ALEXIS MABILLE began his show in a schizophrenic colour palette, with each model half clad in sombre black and half in bright colour pop. The colour split soon moved in to panels - still in a palette of black, scarlet and fuchsia - and introduced more colour by way of electric blue and pineapple yellow later. High demure necklines and a scarcity of Mabille's signature bows made for a grown-up collection….”

Excited, excited, excited
