Will you be my Valentino?

13 Oct

Few things make me really jump out of my seat. Fashionably speaking.

And this time, it was Valentino.

At the Paris Fashion Week, Valentino’s SS 2012 collection was beyond ethereal. Typically, I’m not into those ultra feminine styles and silhouettes (think floral/lace dresses, chiffons and pastels). But this was something else. Maybe it was the elegant patterns so intricately woven, the gorgeous fabrics or those clean flowing lines. Whatever it is, I’m sold! =)

Here are some of my picks:

From Milan, With Love

6 Mar

In case you missed it, here are some highlights of the latest trends and insider perspectives from Milan’s Fall 2011 fashion week. Feel inspired.

My personal favorites were the Emilio Pucci and Prabal Gurung collections. Both very feminine, but strong and sexy at the same time. Love!

Did you know? Gurung was raised in Nepal but started his fashion design career in New Delhi, India as an apprentice with Indian designer, Manish Arora.

That’s quite a career graph and judging by his presence on the international fashion scene, he’s only going to get bigger and better. Go Prabal! =)

And the Oscar goes to…

3 Mar

Sandra Bullock and Halle Berry!!

I am ofcourse referring to the Oscar for the best red carpet look (if there ever was such a thing!)  ;–)

Admittedly, I’m not really into the whole red carpet glamour or the extravagant evening gowns that are synonymous with it. Too artificial and effortful for my general liking. =)

But hey, these two women do look flawless and breathtakingly gorgeous on their big night (Oscars ’11). I mean that’s what movie stars should look like, right? Well done ladies!

Sandra Bullock, Halle Berry

Okay if I had to pick one, it has to be Halle Berry. Would you just look at her!? WOW.
