Could we say that Jeremy Scott‘s FW11 collection poked fun at Prada’s well-received SS11 collection? I think it’s safe to say, yes; even down to the stripes. Assuming Mr. Scott’s furry accessories are faux, they are deliciously kitsch. They won’t bear a price tag relatively close to the near $5,000 tag a là Prada. Therefore, could J.Scott have a hit on his hands (ultimately, thanks to Miuccia)?
Let me cut right to the chase: This week, in addition to regular posts, I’ll be sharing with you highlights, in my opinion, from this years annual Golden Globes; those that took me to orgasm, and those that left me limp, permanently.
Top 4 – The Winners, minus Olivia Wilde in Marchesa. Frankly, it was too prom-like. Also, the straight hair wasn’t working for me (ahem, Sandra, ahem). Anyways, on to those who nailed it:
Leave it to the queen (king?) of androgyny to bring editorial delights a la red carpet. At first, I was expecting her to roll up in a Lanvin frock, up-staging Ms. Moore, tenfold. Knowing that Tilda is one to keep up with the seasons, Lanvin SS11 was too colorful + feminine for her sense of style. To no real surprise, she dons the epitome of an androgynous dress: a man-inspired white shirt on top, and a gorgeous champagne column skirt on the bottom. Little to no accessories; less is way more, in this case.
A lot of you will argue with me on this one, but f#%k you. The only thing I could see as an issue with Leighton in this Burberrry frock, is if she was nominated. For our Queen B, this is totally muting what we normally expect to see her in. I think it was a smart for her to go in subtly (but fabulously), as she+the show were not nominated. It’s simple and perfectly accessorized. Winna winna, chicken dinna.
(Top 2 after the jump!)
I’m sorry, but fuck all the other housewives nationwide (Bethenny, I still love you). The Real Housewives of Atlanta are it! Season 3. Let’s do it. In addition to our veterans (Kim, Shereé, and NeNe♥), Kandi’s back, and we welcome model Cynthia Bailey, and attorney Phaedra Parks. I cannot get enough of these women (can you blame me?).
Some words for the ladies…
