So, as I juggle my pre-calculus homework, I am watching the Oscars, and the fashion is lovely. I know everyone is droning on and on about old hollywood glamour, but I think it's imperative to say that the stars and the star's stylist were influenced by, well, old hollywood glamour. I'll be continually posting new pictures as the night wears on so, and Oh WOW, Andre Leon Talley is covering Oscar fashion for ABC.

The editorial in W magazine, "Welcome to my World", shot by Mert and Marcus features Coco Rocha (elite), Snejana(DNA), Kinée Diouf (NYM) , and Denisa Dvorakova (elite paris) and the wonderful, wonderful world of pretentiousness. Chainsmoking and cocktails, masquerade balls and tiaras, oh my. and Oooh and I like the stark black and white contrast of the photography.
This exclusive collection is only selling at MAC boutiques starting February 15.
And if Andre Leon Talley is so estatic about this dreamgirl, so am I. I bet Beyonce is seething about all this atencion taken away from her. Take that Beyonce, you ain't nothing but common (in the movie.)
Wonder why we never ever see pictures of models coking it up or drinking gallons of wine backstage or puking up the grape they had for breakfest during fashion week? Because cameras are everywhere. Backstage photos at New York Fashion Week.

Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig have made, I believe, THE collection of NY fashion week. Even with those Rachel Zoe gals doushing themselves in Marchesa, their sophomore collection consisted of pure class and elegance. This has definitely been a sophisticated version of their premiere collection, with all the intricate details meticulously refined. These dresses are guaranteed to be on red carpets, and sadly on Lindsay Lohan, but still, Georgina and Keren are paving their spot in la moda.

So, the shows I anticipated the most, were EXUBERANT.
now, ohlalaFirst up is Marc Jacobs, and even without the grunge and the punk, his Fall 07 collection screamed MARC. Not only were the pieces tailored to a tee and red carpet friendly, there was definitely a theme of Parisian chic looming through the models. And jewel tones are so in right.
Phillip Lim 3.1-You know that feeling when you see some so beautiful and you just want to skip in a valley of tulips? Well, anyways, this colelction gives me that feeling.
Diane Von Furstenburg- The prints, the rustling fabrics, the volume, me love long time.
I think my favorite show so far was the Lela Rose show. Fresh, fun and made for the young girl.

As Fall fashions are unveiled in New York right now, I came upon the chance to view the collections myself. Turn out that NY fashion week is coming to San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas, and Houston. with the infamous Naomi Campbell and Gemma Ward taking hosting duties. Flocks of IMG models and champagne are going to flow on the runway and the after party. Downside is that the tickets are at the lowest, 500 dollars for backrow seats. Sophie's choice here for me: Should I go and see Gemma and Naomi and Freja and Lily Donaldson in a once in a lifetime opportunity, or save that cash and watch it on Youtube instead with a box of hohos to accompany me? This is difficult.
