Runway Rundown: Viktor & Rolf’s Spring 2015 Couture Collection!


Viktor & Rolf Spring 2015 Couture Collection.

During the latest Spring 2015 Couture shows, Viktor & Rolf made a splash with their amplified babydoll dresses with dramatic straw hats. The duo played with dimensions against gorgeous colorblocked floral prints built over silk organza petticoats, unexpected ruffles, & avant-garde architecture. Of course, these looks aren’t exactly red carpet-ready; however, there’s something to be said about artistry in fashion, especially when there’s inspiration to be sought from mixing prints & experiments in volume. Fans of the designers include the always flawless Diane Kruger, & actresses Jessica Alba & Jessica Chastain.

What do you think about Viktor & Rolf’s daring fashion statement? Do you ever play with volume in your day-to-day wardrobe? For more posts from Runway Rundown‘s Spring 2015 Couture Week, check out galleries featuring Elie Saab, Atelier Versace, Schiaparelli, & Christian Dior. Happy Styling!

Red Carpet Review: The Wild Looks From The MTV VMAs, Featuring Ciara, Selena Gomez, Katy Perry, & More!


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Music’s most popular & praised hit Brooklyn this weekend to celebrate the MTV VMAs. The ceremony featured a slew of performances that left audiences with their jaws on the floor & many heads scratched. I’m going to talk about talent here. I loved seeing Lady Gaga back in action, as well as the throwback to Justin Timberlake‘s career since his days in NSYNC & also, a memorable Bruno Mars who hit the stage with his new single, “Gorilla.”

However, we must consider the red carpet, which featured a lot of controversial looks, as well as elegant surprises. My favorites include sophisticated risk-takers like Selena Gomez showing her rock side in Atelier Versace, Katy Perry‘s leopard, leggy look by Emanuel Ungaro, Ciara in a Givenchy Couture, & Lady Gaga herself in a black Elvira-inspired look by Prabal Gurung. Of course, Taylor Swift looked stunning in Hérvé Leger & Naya Rivera‘s cut-out black gown was chic, but these girls need to learn to loosen up.

Which looks are your favorite? Which performance were you talking about the most on Monday morning? Do you think Miley Cyrus went too far during her performance?

Runway Rundown: Viktor & Rolf’s Fall 2013 Haute Couture Collection!

Seems like the all-white looks that we’re seeing are celebrities on & off the red carpets are going away in the fall, especially with a head-to-toe black line, as seen in my latest gallery for Viktor & Rolf‘s Fall 2013 Haute Couture Collection. Here we have a very minimalist approach, mixed with plenty of cloak shapes & dramatic structure. Of course it takes a daring fashionista to try one of these looks, but given the right occasion, I’m sure we’ll be seeing lots of black in the future.

I’m all packed & ready to hit the road tomorrow for a highly anticipated break from reality while attending a very intense, yet chic Writer’s Conference out in Southampton for the next eleven days… which means that posts may be sparse for the rest of the month. However, I wanted to leave readers with plenty of inspiration, including some of my favorite celebrity looks who are toting head-to-toe white, black & white ensembles, & fall-ready designer booties that I can’t wait to put on my own feet! My top picks include Salma Hayek Pinault in a printed Christopher Kane dress with seriously stylish Giuseppe Zanotti booties. Also, there’s much to talk about with the usually belly-baring Rihanna who couldn’t look cooler or more casual, as well as supermodel Karolina Kurkova in elegant menswear-inspired separates & Kristen Wiig in a Viktor & Rolf shift dress at an NYC screening for her new film, Girl Most Likely.

My gallery also includes Gwen Stefani working the printed pant trend, young actress Holland Roden in a pretty Naeem Khan frock, Kelly Rowland testing gravity in a flouncy dress & towering booties, tennis star Maria Sharapova in a Valentino shift dress, socialite Olivia Palermo continuing her stylish streak, & Vanessa Hudgens in a cropped sweater by Catherine Malandrino.

Red Carpet Review: Menswear Inspiration from Jennifer Aniston, Lady Gaga, & Evan Rachel Wood!


Menswear inspiration has made quite a comeback over the last few years & it looks like it’s not going away.  We have some amazing celebrity inspiration on how to recreate these looks, embracing the androgynous trend in the most chic & elegant way.  Evan Rachel Wood made a big splash this year in a Dolce & Gabbana suit with Salvatore Ferragamo heels at the Venice Film Festival & also a white Yves Saint Laurent suit with Neil Lane jewelry at the Ides of March premiere.  Fashionista Alexa Chung showed off some color-blocking & layering with a long-sleeved sweater, a button-down shirt, with gray skinny jeans & a red quilted Chanel crossbody bags.

Supermodel Kate Moss wore all-over gray in a slouchy top & trousers with cap toe heels for a Rimmel London event.  Naomi Watts sported her own interpretation of the vest & pants look in this all-white Stella McCartney design.  Jennifer Aniston shows a sultry black version in Dolce & Gabbana for the New York premiere of Five, with a peek-a-boo bra.  In a surprise turn of fashion, Lady Gaga showed up at New York City’s Beacon Theatre in this mustard Viktor & Rolf suit with a mini tube bra & plastic square sunglasses.

To shop for some menswear pieces like blazers, vests, trousers, & button down shirts, check out New York & Company, Express, Ann Taylor LOFT, & H&M.  For accessories to complete your look like belts, necklaces, bags, & shoes, check out some of my favorite stores like Payless, DSW, ALDO, & Steve Madden.

1/22/11 Darling of the Day: Natalie Portman at the Golden Globes!


At this year’s Golden Globes ceremony, Natalie Portman was the talk of the town as a favorite.  Her performance in Black Swan has earned her some serious Oscar buzz & her red carpet styles while promoting the film have offered up some glamorous fashoin cred.  After recently announcing her engagement & pregnancy, everyone in the world wanted a picture of the actress showing off her baby bump.  Here in a sweetly youthful, yet classic pink Viktor & Rolf strapless dress, a single red rose detail is carefully placed at the bustline.  Natalie glows like a joyful & elegant mother-to-be.  She’s decked out in a delicate string necklace & stud earrings, sporting a red Dior cluth, & hot red platform sandals.
