Luxe. What, exactly, do I mean? I’m talking opulence, regality, excess, luxury. Gold, brocade, velvet, pearls, intricate embroidery, jewels; textures fit for a queen. It’s all about Baroque. Dolce & Gabbana got me started on this kick, then Balmain vied for my affection, and Valentino! Gorgeous! Now, I’m in love, I’m in love, and I don’t care who knows it!
I mean, how gorgeous was Jessica Chastain at the Oscars in Alexander McQueen? The gold embroidery was to-die-for!
The thing is, I’m smitten, and here’s why:
