Dior’s couture show was – no surprise – luxe and, I thought, a little edgy in some ways, different. The look above, for example: the general silhouette is very classic and refined, then you look at the jacket and you get a deep V and a floppy collar. So maybe not edgy per se, but just… with a little twist. Definitely vamp-y.
Same concept here. Traditional (I guess) skirt – which I love, the pleats have great motion – paired with an orange top with blocky shoulders. The shoulders take away from the elegance of the silhouette and are juxtaposed to your first impression.
This is a ridiculous fur – exaggerated, over the top… but I bet it’d be ridiculously warm as well.
Lindsey Wixson. Kind of a 40s silhouette on this one, a slightly more typical. I think the fabric has a lot to do with the feel of the look, if that makes sense. The grey has a lightness, a shimmer, and a volume to it that seems a bit unexpected. To me, anyway. Everyone interprets fashion in their own way.
Daphne Groeneveld. This dress feels like spring and Easter to me. I like the cut of the top.
Yulia Kharlaponova. Gorgeous, elegance, glamour at its best. Classic… just beautiful. Those black sweeping streaks – what are they? They remind me of either eyelashes or horse tails, or pony tails. And if you watch the video (how great is Style.com’s new feature? Love it!), you can see the shimmery dots that are scattered all over it. Just subtle enough to catch in the light, no disco themes here.
Georgina Stojilkovic with the closing look – again, just pure elegance and glamour. I love the muted purple and almost a tinge of grey in this dress.
And of course – the shoes!
