The future has now arrived and Tron: Legacy seems to have launched fashion into a video game where clothing looks more and more surreal. The Armani Privé spring 2011 couture show seems to be embracing a new sentiment, that we have to embrace ourselves for space travel in the near future.
It seems as though the metallic threads woven into these organza garments bent light at super speeds as the models floated down the runway.
Don’t these hats remind you of the discs that the programs of Tron:Legacy use to defend themselves? Odd reference for a couture show, I know, but I couldn’t help notice that they have a strikingly similar appearance!
Luckily there was a bit of color (teal, red, and fuchsia) thrown into the mix of gun metal silvers.
At least, as the years go by, we know that we’re already equipped with some pretty sweet futuristic clothes. And, as technology advances we’ll be able to create high heeled functioning moon boots and anti-gravity defiant gowns by the time we’re forced to use them!
Are you ready to move to the moon?
I also found out I share a birthday with Neil Diamond and the discovery of gold in California. Yippee!
Is the concept of Valentine’s Day giving you wardrobe anxiety? Have you already ransacked your closet with the hopes of making an old dress work for your special night? I have just the solution for you my friends! Whether you have a special someone or are hanging out with your favorite friends this V-Day, I have just the thing for you! To make things simple I have broken it down to three styles: The Sweetheart, The Vixen, and The Nonconformist. Which one are you? Or are you like me and a little bit of all three? Let’s take a look at our first beauty, The Sweetheart. If this definitely isn’t you, visit us again on Wednesday and Friday for our other two looks!
We all know the sweetheart. She is a good girl with a good heart and dresses just the part. Often the girl next door, the beauty queen, the animal lover, the future school teacher, the Pep Squad leader, this girl is feminine and happy to be! Pink is a not a problem but other girly colors will do just as well. Smart and beautiful, the sweetheart knows how to be friends with everyone and to have the courage to dream big. Let’s look at some fabulous options if you are indeed The Sweetheart!
Two beautiful options shown here would make any sweetheart proud. On the left we have the Glance of Flower Strapless Pink Dress. This elegant, light pink dress looks like fresh cut flowers! On the right we have the La Vie en Rose Pink Dress which would be perfect for twirling the night away!
Here we have 2 examples of truly sweet shoes! On the left we have a gorgeous pair called the Qupid Gaze Patent and Chiffon Slingbacks. I am obsessed with the smooth patent and the pretty chiffon on these heels! For something more understated the Go Max Ashland Natural Patent Pumps are perfect to wear not only for Valentine’s Day but with their super neutral color they will work year round.
When it come to accessories make sure to stay just as sweet! Try the Oh la Bow on for size in your choice of silver or gold. To tote all your necessities try the Powder Puff Purse in Black! I love the rosette-style look of this ruffled bag.
Whatever you end up wearing make sure to have fun! Check back in on Wednesday and Friday for more Valentine’s Day ideas!
The doors have opened for Paris Fashion Week Spring 2011 Couture season and we’re already swooning with excitement. So far, from what I have seen at my desk on Style.com, Galliano has struck a goldmine with his collection for Christian Dior.
The collection looks back to the “New Look” and upholds a lady like demeanor fit for a queen. The models seem to be statues of socialite elegance strutting down the runway in the fullest skirts ever seen and wrapped in gowns containing enough fabric for all of Paris to fit under.
The color story isn’t too sophisticated and if it weren’t for the pale blue that seems to have been misted over some of the garments I would even venture to say that it was quite boring!
What seems to hold this collection together is the stoic and timeless elegance of the “Dior” woman. Galiano knows who his customers are and this collection will offer them some great red carpet, gala worthy pieces to choose from.
