Elie Saab Spring Fashion Colllection


It was back to the seventies at Elie Saab, as on so many other runways this season. The designer name-checked Bianca, Lauren, and Diane, and he attempted to conjure the wild nights of Studio 54 with a lineup that was long on jersey, chiffon, sequins, and the decade’s requisite platform sandals. If it felt like a tepid reimagining of that heady era, especially in light of the disco-y decadence of Louis Vuitton a few hours later, that may be partly explained by the fact that Saab does such a big business with the Hollywood crowd. No actress wants to land on the worst-dressed list, which means today’s red-carpet dressing only pushes the boundaries so far.



Saab’s formula for Spring was best summed up by the closing dress, a blush-peach asymmetrical gown embroidered in tiny squares of sequins: a little bit of shine and a little bit of shoulder, with a glossy mane and lids lined in yellow shadow to match. Michel Gaubert’s soundtrack of Rolling Stones, Blondie, and Diana Ross tunes worked hard to add some sizzle to the proceedings, but the green chartreuse, apricot, slate blue, and smoky white palette didn’t want to comply. A close-fitting column gown ruched on the torso and a cocktail dress with the same draped detail down its back provided a couple of pulse-quickening moments. But you left wanting more of them.

Yves Saint Laurent Spring Collection


It was inevitable that the epic Designer Clothes Saint Laurent exhibition, which recently closed after a six-month run in Paris, would make its presence felt in fashion this season. It certainly put the man who holds the reins at the house that Yves built in a reflective mood. In a blazingly focused, tightly edited show, Stefano Pilati revisited the Yves Saint Laurent codes one by one: beginning with a trenchcoat and building naturally to Le Smoking, in crepe de soir. In between came bowed blouses, blasts of color, cabans, paysanne  ruffles, clouds of marabou, long forties lines, exotica, erotica, and more. It was a comprehensive guided tour of the YSL universe. And the location—a Rothschild hôtel particulier in the eighth—was a simpatico venue, its gilded, frescoed salons instantly creating a more appropriate, intimate mood than the cavernous glory of the Grand Palais, where Pilati had been showing for a while.

Speaking of simpatico, the clothes Pilati offered to an audience that ran the gamut from Janet Jackson to Florence Welch (minus her Machine for a fashion night out) underscored his instinctive connection to the fundamental ethos of the house. You could pose it as a face-off: restraint versus release. The specter of Belle de Jour hovers over such a notion, but here it was as simple as black and white, if you considered the pristine glare of that opening trench versus the inky blackness of the last jumpsuit. But Pilati also proposed a blouse that was proper bordering on prim, bar the fact that it was completely sheer, and a jumpsuit that turned out to be backless. The subtle baring of skin was something of a leitmotif, with the slit skirt or the exposed midriff. It fitted with the tribalism Pilati was talking about afterward: how fashion is a way for women to identify themselves, just as members of a tribe do. He made the connection explicit with a print that was literally thumbprints, or a texture that looked a little like scarified skin. The sophisticated, the primitive again, restraint and release. It added up to a collection that should resonate loud and long for Pilati.

Designer clothes: Sex and the City 2


Another Hits and fashionable for the stars of Sex and the City 2. The ladies stepped out for the red carpet primere of their movies in New York last night.

It’s been four years since audiences last heard from the ladies of Sex and the City, but they’ll get their chance to catch up when the female Fab Four hits the big screen in this week’s Sex and the City: The Movie. Attending the highly anticipated premiere were stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon,

Cynthia Nixon aks Miranda Hobbes

Cynthia Nixon confessed that she took the safe route with her black Carolina Herrera dress. “I think if fans expect me to be this dressed up in my everyday life, they’re going to be very disappointed. I own a lot of flats,” she joked.

CK 2010


Today’s Calvin Klein Collection show began with a musical composition and light show by Alva Noto (a.k.a. Carsten Nicolai) specially conceived for the occasion. The room went dark and spotlights that looked vaguely like stacked vertebrae pulsated to the rhythm of the soundtrack. It was a fittingly conceptual beginning for Francisco Costa’s Fall lineup, which was pared down in the extreme.

The designer opened with a streamlined collarless coat in lustrous black cupro. Its molded, rounded shoulders and full sleeves turned up later in a double faced wool suit jacket worn with a wrap skirt, as well as in an ivory crepe and leather long sleeve T-shirt teamed with matching high-waisted, cropped pants. If the stiff, sculptural shapes of these pieces weren’t the most flattering, Costa’s two other areas of interest this season regimented tailoring and shift dresses paid more careful attention to the lines and curves of the female body.

A midnight blue trench in stretch technical wool had a commanding presence. (The fact that Stella Tennant wore it probably helped; along with Kirsty Hume and Kristen McMenamy, the nineties supe was there to represent the golden era of minimalism.) A hammered cashmere cape, two curving arches cut away from its hem, was equally dramatic. As for Costa’s sleeveless shifts, what made them compelling was their glossy, liquid-mercury fabrics or, alternately, their calla-lily-inspired draped shapes. Evening was represented by a trio of silver silk Lurex columns with subtle gridlike embroideries. They aren’t exactly red carpet friendly (sorry, front-row attendees Kerry Washington, Kate Bosworth, Isabel Lucas, and Naomi Watts). But in their spare simplicity like the best pieces in this collection they’re undeniably cool.

Spring Fashion by Ralph Lauren


“Spectator at its most modern” is how Ralph Lauren defined Spring 2001. Lauren’s collection built upon the polished, well-heeled aesthetic that dominated the New York runways last season, but his new interpretation is graphic and geometric.
Ralph Lauren
Black and white and brown and white served as the leitmotif for mod shift leather dresses, blazers with generous trimmed lapels and pockets and sexy two-tone jeans. The season’s essential crepe de chine skirt pleated, to the knee, and paired with a casual cashmere and silk tank was a laid back alternative to a sinful white crocodile minisuit. Chevron skirts, pinstriped jackets and a glen plaid pantsuit were all worn with the same strings of pearls that were a Fall favorite.

The evening looks were also ladylike and controlled Lauren gave lace camisoles and georgette pants lift with a touch of beading, and closed his presentation with three impressive floor-length striped gowns.

Necklines in Evening dress


Evening dresses for women come in a wide variety of colors, fabrics, hemlines and necklines. The seemingly endless choices allow women to find a style that works best for their personality and body type. Popular necklines include V-neck, strapless and halter.

V Necklines

V-shaped necklines became increasingly popular in the 60’s, as women wore less structured clothing. Wearing an evening dress with a V-neck is a great way to elongate the neck and display your collarbones. The depth of a V-neck can vary, ranging from a short v-shape to a deep plunge, so if you’re concerned about revealing too much cleavage, be sure to try on the dress prior to purchasing. V-necklines are universally flattering and work well with any body type.

A strapless neckline is a great way to showcase your neck, shoulders and collarbones. A strapless neckline on an evening gown looks elegant and instantly dressed-up. The shape of a strapless neckline can vary, and popular strapless shapes include sweetheart and straight-across cuts. A sweetheart cut on a strapless dress is shaped like the top of a heart and can show a little more cleavage than a straight cut. A straight-across line on a strapless evening gown can provide more coverage on top and still look sexy and flattering.

Having a halter neckline on your evening gown displays your neck, arms, shoulder, and the amount of cleavage you desire. In a halter neckline, the fabric wraps up from the underarm and around the neck. Halter necklines on evening gowns can have very thin to very thick fabric straps around the necks. Because this neckline pulls up before tying or clasping around the back of the neck, this gives your chest an added boost. A halter neckline on an evening gown could be a great choice for women with larger breasts who want added support, or for women with smaller breasts who wish to create cleavage and look a bit perkier.

Women fashion accessories


In today’s world, we are often judged by how we dress, how we look, and how we carry ourselves. Fashion is on the front and is it easy to get left behind. The smallest fashion accessories can bring out an outfit. Even though things change each season, there are some essential and easy to get fashion accessories that stand the test of time.

Ralph Lauren

If you don’t have one, get a little black dress. Having a little black dress spans all in fashion. You can incorporate black with any color and at any time.

handbag

Get a hand bag. This can set your fashion accessories chart out of this world. Having a hand bag cannot only add spice to a dull outfit, it is handy for caring your personal, everyday things around as well. When choosing a hand bag, choose a hand bag that you can interchange with different outfits.

jewelry

Spring 2010


Hard times. The Great Recession we’re all living through got Ralph Lauren thinking about American resiliency. “I am inspired by the character of the worker, the farmer, the cowboy, the pioneer women of the prairies,” he wrote in his program notes. So in place of the polo fields or any of his other tony stomping grounds, Ralph Lauren took us back to the dust bowl for Spring.00010Models in newsboy caps wore faded and torn oversize jeans with blue work shirts; patchwork overalls; nightshirts in mattress-ticking stripes; or sweet calico print dresses with white ankle socks and oxfords with heels.

It was cinematic, like most of Lauren’s collections. And it goes without saying that his vision is a romanticized one: Henry Fonda’s character in The Grapes of Wrath didn’t carry a lizard-skin bag. In fact, the show played like a rags-to-riches tale, a story line dear to the designer’s heart. After a few white cotton organdy dresses and some thirties-esque suits—think pinstriped three-pieces with cropped and gathered pants or a boxy d.b. with fuller trousers—the work jackets and carpenter pants reappeared in blue ombré silk charmeuse, the nightshirts came striped with beads, and the overalls were transformed into a floor-grazing lamé dress. A pair of evening jeans, completely covered in silvery beads save for the fraying holes, took the concept to the limit.

When Lauren came out for his bow, it was to the tune of Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone.” He’ll see the other side of this recession—no one works harder than he does; he’s the great American brand.
