THIS MONTH’S FAVES
Monthly Archives: October 2010
This spread combines three things I love and dream about often: PARIS and flirtatious femme beauty, fashion’s best couture designers who celebrate the beauty of the little black dress and the well known photographer, Patrick Demarchelier.Â What a fabulous pair.
Chloe is by far one of my favorite designers. I always feel a 70s retro feminity transpired through their pieces.

Big hair -> Big bows ;)
Smokey eye, femme big hair and draped top paired with a sexy leather glove.
Photographer: Patrick Demarchelier
Patrick Demarchelier was born outside Paris in 1943 and has lived in the US since 1975. His photos regularly appear in Vogue, Vanity Fair, Harperâ€™s Bazaar, Rolling Stone, Newsweek and Elle. Beginning in 1989, he was the official photographer of Princess Diana of Wales, becoming the first non-Briton to become an official photographer for the Royal Family. In 2007, he became an Officer dans lâ€™ordre des Arts et Lettres, and his work was the subject of the retrospective Patrick Demarchelier: Images et Mode at the Petit Palais in Paris. (models.com)

The beauty of this trend, is the class and effortless beauty of such simplicity.Â It could be compared to the classic black dress, but it makes much more of a statement.Â RED came to focus this season, but primarily as a bright orange red rather then deep red.Â Dresses made with such bold color,Â are complimented well with a simple neckline and a touch of girliness – a bow, extended shoulders or an extended skirt line.Â Any way you do it, this trends saysÂ ‘confidence’, paired with ‘classic taste.’
With such a bold statement, there are some things to consider:
DONT go too tight
DON’T go too short
DO simple styling ( a belt, and simple or simple necklace)
DO add tights (but only sheer or black)
DO make it girly
Send me pictures or free feel to ask me any questions!

Is anyone else freaking out over this as much as me? While girls dream of wearing red carpet gowns, other maybe of their wedding dress, and then their are designers like Sophie Albou, who dream of wearing the perfect balance of color, high fashion, vintage, and a sexy chicness.
The colors hereÂ make me want to smile (or dance), as Style.com reports that all of Paul & Joe’s models were smiling down the runway.Â Who wouldn’t want to strut a huge smile and maybe even wink an eye in these clothes.Â The color was RISKY, yes, BOLD, most definitely, and KNOWS HOW TO HAVE A GOOD TIME, absolutely!
The brown, peach/orange and yellow give aÂ 70s vintage inspiration, and the styling with prescription glasses and long necklaces complete the look.
Paul & Joe have recently invaded Robertson Boulevard Los Angeles, with their first store in the United States. While I can’t image the entire store is as fun as this collection, the colors will be going bold for Spring, and jumpers such as these are ones to be adored.
