paris fashion week street style part 2

here's some more street style photos i snapped during paris fashion week, at one of my favorite locations, les tuileries. one of the best places for people watching, fashionistas and photographers abound in hopes of catching celebrities, fashion editors and models on their way in and out of the shows. the weather was surprisingly kind and although we're seeing a bit less of the color block trend, there was still some vibrant hues scattered about. / voici d'autres photos street style que j'ai prises pendant la fashion week paris, à un de mes lieux préférés, les tuileries. un des meilleurs endroits pour regarder les gens, fashionistas et photographes viennent dans l'espoir de voir les célébrités, rédacteurs de mode et mannequins arrivant et partant des shows. le temps à été clément, et même si l'on voit moins de la tendances des patch de couleurs, il y avait tout de même de vibrantes teintes un peu partout.

a touch of versace for h&m

jimmy choo, sonia rykiel, lanvin and now versace... it looks like h&m is plotting to get ladies everywhere to brave the cold weather to camp outside their stores once again! they couldn't have picked a prettier model for their campaign, abbey lee takes center stage for versace x h&m's lookbook. i love, love, love the silver mesh dress, which sadly is retailing for 199 euros, so perhaps i'll settle for the vibrant pink mini-dress or its elegant black version, both at 149 euros. the collection will be available from november 17th in select stores. which pieces do you fancy? / jimmy choo, sonia rykiel, lanvin et maintenant versace... on dirait que h&m complote de faire que les filles bravent le froid pour camper devant leurs magasins encore une fois! ils n'auraient pu choisir de plus magnifique mannequin pour leur nouvelle campagne; abbey lee est au centre de la scène pour le lookbook versace x h&m. j'aime beaucoup la robe filet, qui malheureusement est à 199 euros, donc je vais peut-être me contenter de la vibrante mini-robe rose ou de son élégante version noire, toutes deux à 149 euros. la collection sera disonible à partir du 17 novembre. laquelle vous préférez?

^ definitely my fav
^ gorgeous booties
^ floral pants? yes please

pfw: issey miyake spring/summer 2012

my first time in the massive constructed venue that sits nestled in a corner of the tuilerie gardens in paris, one of the most buzzed-around locations for fashion shows during paris fashion week. at issey miyake, i was pleasantly surprised that they opened their doors right before the show, letting in the hopefuls who didn't have invitations. the sweltering heat of the inside was alleviated somewhat with the little round fans they passed out. the collection began and ended with a fluttering laser show, where models in orchid ruffles strutted down the runway in a variety of soft fabrics, completing their looks with organic shaped headpieces and android-esque hair tulips sprayed with pastel shades. / ma première fois dans le gigantesque lieu niché dans un coin du jardin des tuileries à paris, un des lieux les plus discutés pour les défilés lors de la paris fashion week. à issey miyake, j'ai été agréablement surprise lorsqu'ils ont ouvert les portes juste avant le show, laissant entrer ceux sans invitation. la chaleur torride à l'intérieur était amoindrie par les évantails ronds distribués. la collection à commencée par un show laser, où les mannequins en jabot orchidée défilaient dans une variété de tissus doux, complétant leur looks avec des chapeaux organiques et cheveux tulipes androides agrémentés de tons pastels.

all that glitters

a beautiful make-up editorial brought to us by photographer, stanley patzold. luscious, over-the-top eyelashes, glittery eyelids, and a generous application of eye shadow complements the model's porcelain complexion and nude lips. an extravagant flourish to create an almost decadent and dramatic look. a little halloween inspiration, perhaps? / un magnifique édito de maquillage par le photographe stanley patzold. cils pulpeux et excessifs, paupières scintillantes, et une généreuse application de fard à paupières complimente le teint porcelaine et les lèvres nues du modèle. un geste extravagant qui crée un look théâtrale presque décadent. une petite inspiration d'halloween peut-être?

^ perfectly peachy
^ channeling ice queen
^ feather lashes
