Lights, cameras, fashion!!! And what a week of fashion it was, from my own runway at NY fashion week to the Grammys, to the death of an icon, Whitney Houston.
The Grammys were high glamor and Adele, the favorite of the night, gave us classic Audrey Hepburn 60's. I adore the 1930's retro Joan Crawford look that Jessie J wore for the red carpet.
Swizz Beatz gave us the ultimate in men's style. This velvet tuxedo blazer was the epitome of male chic.
Jennifer Hudson, performing in the tribute to the great Whitney Houston looked strong, confident and, my beautiful darling, looked stunning.
It appears the 1930's are strong in fashion this season. As Katy Perry shows us in this redo of an Adrian Gilbert as once worn by Joan Crawford. A version of this dress was the best selling item at department stores in the 1930's when every woman in America aspired to look so chic. Perhaps it is true, fashion does go in cycles and this cycle is one of literal recreation. Perhaps the catwalks of NYC were the perfect example of a return to glamor, classic and chic, a time where Hollywood's silver screens were the catwalks of the world.
My show this season was the embodiment of classic James Bond style and Catherine Deneuve chic. With faces created in daring hues by Beauticontrol, even men found new ways to accentuate with jewelry, 13 Ost cuff-links gave men options to shine and sparkle for the new season. I have to say the fun part of any show is the accessories and the shoes and the United Nude shoe styles were the perfect compliment.
Vera Wang always exudes glamor on her runway and her audience never disappoints. Giving their most beautiful looks Anna Wintour, Viola Davis, and the stunning Renée Zellweger were the perfect examples of audience chic.
Well, we end the week with the BAFTA's and my favorite of the night, Meryl Streep. Brava!
By the way, what anime character did Katy Perry remind you of at the Grammys? Well darlings, until next week I wish you all love and glamour.
