Fall ’08 Proenza Schouler

February 23, 2008

Construction, construction, execution. Yes. That was the name of the game for Proenza Schouler’s latest offerings. Menswear was given a spin that featured ultra-slouchy trousers that was held up with black leather belts. The construction of the garments showed super interesting cuts and the folds and shaggy look was seen in so many of the looks.


The look was very strong – an element of strength can be seen through the double-breasted coats, tweed and fierce trousers. Mustard, browns and purples reigned supreme. The gorgeous shaggy blouses, trousers and jackets brought an almost airy feel to the entire look. This collection has many little cocktail dresses with different colours and were adorned with sequins that added some shine into it.


My absolute favourite looks are  the double breasted coat-with-tights look, and the large bow white blouse with oversized trousers look.

Fall ’08 Herve Leger by Max Azria

February 23, 2008

Bondage just got a little more mainstream. For many many seasons, I’ve come to appreciate the bondage dresses that have been ‘spray painted’ onto many celebrities’ bodies. This collection of bondage dresses was adorned with beads, feather, applique and colour panels. Also seen on the catwalk were gorgeous knee and full length dresses that had loads of volume in it. Fabulous touches of romantic teal and amethyst stood out among the darker, sexier colour palette.  The refreshing take on the corseted pants added a touch of freshness and newness to the collection. Touches of flowers were added to the fabulous dresses, like the red rose one on the dark violet dress, among others. One of the most gorgeous dresseswas the off-white dress with organza skirt and the silver bands down the neckline. The colour is fresh and unexpected for Fall, but yet so muted and wearable at the same time. The hair and make-up for this show was just so minimalistic. The skin was kept natural and glowy. Looks like this time round, make-up was kept to a minimal touch of just tinted moisturizer after a moisturizing mask to boost the dewy-ness and overall look of the skin. The hair was kept straight and well-groomed. Headpieces with feathers also crowned the models’ straight hair.    00320m.jpg 00010f.jpg00340m.jpg00140m.jpg00360m.jpg


The Return

February 23, 2008

Hi guys. I’m so sorry for the lack of posts. I’ve been incredibly busy this month – Chinese New Year, taking over someone else at work (meaning my national duty), and so much more. Anyways, I’m back to give you some of my favourites shows and stuff from the recent Fall ’08 Ready-to-wear shows. It’ll be spread over several posts, so do visit back often! 


MAC Blot Powder

January 29, 2008

m530_261.jpgcredit: maccosmetics.comThis blot powder (mine’s medium dark) is not only like it’s colourless, it helps to suck up extra oil and sebum! This doesn’t add any extra colour or texture at all. What helps to soak up the extra oils is mica and silica. The puff that comes with it isn’t that fantastic and I much rather apply this with a huge brush from Shu Uemura.Simply sweep this all over your face to keep your facial shine at bay!! You would have to touch up throughout the day though.  


Victoria Beckham’s Purple Ostrich Birkin

January 24, 2008

Check out Victoria Beckham’s fabulous looking Hermes Birkin in Purple (maybe violine or raisin) Ostrich. We all know how difficult it is to get a Birkin, what more a purple ostrich one! It’s a great exotic and a great quirky colour that looks absolutely posh. Pun intended.
All of these 3 fabulous looking women look so different. Let me disect their style!
Dita von Tesse: Obviously the fairest of them all (skin colour wise, of course), and her navy blue moon dress by the designer himself really stands out. I love how she’s carrying a book-like clutch and accessorizing with a great cocktail ring, a brooch and louboutins.
Claudia Schiffer: Clearly the tallest of them all. Her look is just so quirky!! That smile, that tousled blonde hair, the leopard print YSL belt and clutch, and that gold bracelet and shoes just look so together! Note how her skirt is the same one as Victoria Beckham’s, only in a different colour and not a dress.
Victoria Beckham: As usual, looking posh and dressed to the nines. Her fur (most probably faux) looks great with the Roland Mouret dress she’s donning, and doesn’t she look great and just like a snow bunny with her trademark tan? Girl has also matched her purple Birkin with violet Louboutins. The dress looks great on her figure as it fits well and looks great!
These 3 were undoubtedly the most stylish and fashionable for Paris Fashion Week!

  I’m sad to share with you guys that Heath Ledger, the star of Brokeback Mountain and the upcoming Batman movie has passed away. :(This is extremely sad news as he was a great person and actor. What a loss.

My sister just gave me a great trio pack of MAC products today as an early Birthday present as she’s heading back to Perth end of Feb. I got the Blot powder, blotting paper and strobe cream. As you might already tell, I’ve got pretty oily skin! And the great thing is that the MAC lady told her to get the blot powder as it’s just as effective or even more effective than any oil control lotion.I can’t wait to try these products out and review them for you guys!
