This is the description of this video…
The Dolce & Gabbana collection Fall/winter 2009. Tradition is always in mind as the starting point, but experimentation and innovation in the fashion of Dolce & Gabbana is always evolving.
The style is “wraps to stay warm”. Tailored jackets, double-layered with organza with exposed finish.

Trousers are looser and more voluminous. Special brushed shearling from the farmers with details of unfinished fabric and wool. Crocodile or patchwork leather jackets or nylon jackets lined with lambskin. Tailored jackets with exposed stitching and patchwork lapels. Day suits single or double-breasted layered with organza. Pin-striped or worn velvet suits. Jogging pants made of cashmere and low rise trousers with a dropped crotch. Chunky handmade sweaters layered with tulle. Shirts with collars and cuffs layered with organza or hand-painted naïve art. For the evening, three-piece suits are black, single or doublebreasted jackets are layered with blue, black or brown organza, with black satin lapels.

Some of the T-shirt of the Fall/Winter 2008/2009 collection are made exclusively for Dolce & Gabbana by Alessandro Pezzati, a young artist who attends Academy of Fine Arts in Milan. Check out more high fashion news.

The 1980’s leggings reborn is definately not my favorite look, but it seems 1980 style has been on the runway of high fashion around the world this last year

Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Aastha Bahl. A very fashionable collection inspired by the fabulously fashionable style icon Audrey Hepburn. I love this photo below.

This looks more NY than Bombay, but the outfit is stunning

Search for the perfect prom dress

prom-dress-1.jpegWith school ending and summer just around the corner… we head into prom season and the teenage girls mad dash to Macy’s in search of the perfect prom dress.

Wow, I am glad I am past that, but for thousands of American girls, the fashion fun is just beginning.

I must say, I have to wonder how many prom dresses the typical girl tries on before she says “this is it!”. 5…10..100?

So whats hot this prom season? I hear …

This season’s biggest trends include:

• Silky and slinky gowns

• Bold color — orange, yellow, pink

• Goddess-style draping

• Ruching

• Black-and-white combos

• Low-cut backs

• Subtle sequins — too much bling is a bad thing

• Subtle ruffles

• Halter-style tops

too boney to model?

So I run across this pic, love the fashion but the first thing to catch my gaze  are the bones sticking out of her chest. This pic reminds me of something out of the Alien movie, creature poking out. It may just be the angle, but this models upper chest is gross, skinny is in, skeleton poking through skin is not. I just heard about a show sending models away for being too thin, I guess they do not like the “please feed me or I may die this second” look either.

Someone stick a cheeseburger in that lovely ladies mouth. I really just think clothes look better on a model when she does not look ill. The bags under the eyes do not help the starved look either.

3 short skirts that I could live without. 2 remind me of a cocktail waitress uniform and the plaid one is a bit dowdy.
