One of the most unconventional, yet buzzed about collections that hit the runway during Couture Fashion Week in Paris was Versace‘s new Spring 2015 Couture line. While, it’s risky in nature, playing up the curves of the female form with swirls & twists on transparent paneling- all over- the true couture-ness isn’t as evident. Nonetheless, designer Donatella Versace wowed critics, especially when A-listers like Amy Adams, Jessica Chastain, & Kate Hudson showed up in support; the latter of which donned the same red design as above (in a pencil version) while sitting front row beside mom, Goldie Hawn. However, this collection arrives just in time for the upcoming Grammy’s, which makes me believe that nominees & presenters are likely to don some of these runway looks, including Iggy Azalea, Taylor Swift, Jessie J, & Lady Gaga.
It’s been a crazy year for my magazine collection & I’m guilty of maintaining a pretty high stack of fashionable pages. However, it’s nearly the end of August & the mountain is getting higher, especially since there are so many amazing September issues hitting stands & arriving in mailboxes all over the country. I’ve included a whopping 21 covers in this post, also featuring links to the coordinating articles / cover shoot details online.
During this week’s Grammy ceremony, there were dozens of tributes to the recently passed Whitney Houston, but also the artists were showing off their full-fledged glamour while celebrating the evening’s festivities. Some of my favorites include Taylor Swift, Adele, & Jessie J, all in shimmering metallics & sparkling elegance. Of course, there were a few flops like Fergie & Nicki Minaj, but every red carpet has their risk-takers. Take a look at the gallery below & share your thoughts on all the couture craziness! Happy Styling!
