trussardi's dramatic cool

i really liked these presentation photos of trussardi's fall/winter collection for 2011 where the dramatic poses and mood is enhanced by the rich and simplistic color palette of black, red and camel. quite a few bold, dramatic pieces that showcase clean lines, furs and a hint of vintage 1960s flair. and this collection has some of my favorite accessories, the large, wide-brim hats that give such a glam touch to each look, a season must-have for any budding fashionista.

^ i need that hat
^ love this skirt

live: oscar arrivals

since i'm watching the oscars arrivals now i've decided to post up some photos of the red carpet arrivals. i'll be updating the photos as i can find them. how many of you will be watching tonight? EDIT: well it was pretty magical but i was a tad disappointed that most of the choices on the red carpet were safer than usual. my favorites from the night include mila's gorgeous lavender gown along with the slinky yet elegance dress worn by gywneth. which ones were your favorites?

^ my favorite so far, mila kunis in elie saab
^ mandy moore wearing monique lhuillier
^ anne hathaway rocks red in a valentino gown
 ^ scarlett johansson in a plum-colored dolce & gabbana gown
^ i love this! gywneth paltrow looking gorgeous in calvin klein
 ^ adorable hailee steinfeld in a marchesa creation
 ^ goddess cate blanchett in givenchy

fashion week: backstage beauties

i love backstage photos just as much as i love the runway ones. having been backstage only once (and hopefully again for paris fashion week), all i can gather is that it's a very hectic, micro-environment where there's a lot of clothes, a lot of running around and a lot of gorgeous models. here are some lovely backstage photos i found of some of the hottest models this season. / j'aime autant les photos backstage que les photos des défilés. ayant été en backstage qu'une seule fois (et j'espère une autre fois pour la paris fashion week), tout ce que je sais c'est que c'est très mouvementé, espace confiné avec beaucoup de vêtements, beaucoup d'activité autour de mannequins sublimes. voici quelques photos backstage que j'ai trouvées de quelque mannequins les plus en vogue cette saison.

gorgeous girls nimue smit & patricia van der vilet
sun feifei
forever my girlcrush, constance jablonski
abbey lee kershaw
frida gustavsson
the lovely lindsey wixson
 melissa tammerjin

etro's elegance

veronica etro's latest fall/winter collection for 2011 showcases some of her traditional gorgeous patterns with an added elegance through draping layers and fuzzy furs. continuing a current trend of the masculine-cut slacks and furry sleeves, she adds a bit of shine and sheer to her fabrics. you could almost see hints of indian,  mexican, scottish and nepalese influences in her pieces, giving an organic and worldly feel and paying homage to the treasures of ancient civilizations. / la dernière collection automne/hiver de veronica etro de 2011 montre ses motifs superbes traditionnels avec l'élégance en plus dans les couches drapées et des fourrures fuzzy. en repenant la mode des pantalons masculins et des manches à fourrure, elle ajoute du brillant et transparent. on devine des influences l'indiennes, mexicaines, écossaises et népalaises dans ses pièces, leur donnant un feeling organique and ''world'', en hommage aux trésors des anciennes civilisations.

^ i need this in my life
^ bright colored pants continue their reign
^ shaggy gorgeousness

nyfw favs: meet matchie...

hello lovelies. today i have a different sort of post... i wanted to introduce you all to matchie, my personal always fashionable, sometimes spaced-out muse. she likes to ''match'' her favorite looks from the runways and on her favorite style icons plus she's a strong believer that imitation is the highest form of flattery. for her debut, she's wearing one of my favorites from new york fashion week, a gorgeous red gown from the lovely designer monique lhuillier. / salut mes chéries. aujourd'hui j'ai un nouveau style de post... je voulais vous présenter matchie, ma muse personnelle toujours stylée et parfois à l'ouest. elle aime imiter ses looks préférés des défilés et de ses icônes, de plus elle croit en l'imitation comme la plus haute forme de flatterie. pour ses débuts, elle porte un de mes looks favoris de la fashion week new york, une magnifique robe rouge de l'adorable designer monique lhuillier.

paul smith's boyfriend trend

paul smith takes the boyfriend trend up a notch with his autumn/winter 2011 collection. doing what he does best, paul dresses women the way he would dress his men, albeit with some feminine flair included. the collection includes boyish blazers, oversized coats and and rolled up mens-style slacks - all in flattering tones and styles for women. the casual and modern look of these pieces exude a certain confidence, perhaps of a girlfriend/wife who doesn't mind rummaging through her boyfriend/husband's side of the closet and still come out looking good. / paul smith passe la mode boyfriend au niveau supérieur avec sa collection automne/hiver 2011. en faisant ce qu'il fait le mieux, paul habille les femmes comme il habillerait ses hommes, bien qu'avec une touche féminine en plus. la collection est faite de blazers "mecs", des mantaux larges et pantalons d'hommes enroulés - tout ça dans des couleurs et styles pour femmes. le look casual et moderne de ces pièces dégage une ceraine confiance, peut-être celle d'une copine/femme que ça ne dérange pas de fouiller dans le placard de son copain/mari et en ressortir superbe.

^ harry potter/ absent-minded professor chic
^ if i ever saw someone wearing this i'm immediately girlcrush them
^ i love this
