Gucci Gucci Goo

November 11, 2015

When Gucci’s new creative director Alessandro Michele debuted his collection last fall, I admit I was a little puzzled. The much heralded departure from the sleek, sexy look that the label had been known for under the direction of Tom Ford and later Frida Gianinni had been replaced by a more eclectic, dare we say frumpy chic look? The first collection erred on the side of ill fitting, and unflattering. Despite the obvious, the fashion flock hailed Mr. Michele the second coming, reminding us of a modern twist on the Emperor’s New Clothes. While that might make for some interesting street style from everyone’s favorite fashion victims, the question remained whether or not we would see it”in real life.” or on the red carpet. That burning question was answered last weekend, when the star-studded LACMA event took place and Gucci seemed to be the label of choice.

( Full disclosure: In my opinion, the second collection, while playing to the same theme, felt more wearable, appeared to be better cut than it’s predecessor, and is serving to provide a much needed shift in the world of fashion.)

Without further ado, here are some celebs sporting Gucci on the red carpet. What do you think?

On a similar, yet unrelated note, do you think Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy secretly hates Kim Kardashian? Some of her absolute worst looks, including her Met Gala disaster during her last pregnancy were designed especially for her by her supposedly dear friend Riccardo. Here is what she wore to the LACMA party:

Well it certainly isn't what I might call matronly! Is Riccardo Tischi off giggling somewhere at his latest Joke?

Well it certainly isn’t what I might call matronly! Is Riccardo Tisci off giggling somewhere at his latest joke? Real friends don’t let their friends go out looking like this! Or upholster them like a lumpy sofa as he did in the past.

Let us know what you think of these looks in the comments. Sometimes it takes a little while for our eye to adjust to new proportions, but if I was walking the red carpet, I know I would want to be in something a little more flattering than these!

Pretty in Punk

May 9, 2013

Monday night marked the annual “Met Ball,” honoring the opening of the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s latest exhibition entitled Punk: From Chaos to Couture.

Much speculation lead up to the event, as to how the theme would be handled by the revelers, hand selected by Vogue’s high priestess herself, Anna Wintour.

Well, today we have the answer, and in most cases, it was handled poorly.

While a few went all out, (Madonna you go girl!) many opted for odd choices that left them looking awkward and uncomfortable. Below are some of our favorites, who embraced the movement and looked pretty in punk:

And after couture came utter chaos. What made these attractive young women embrace old age, instead of punk?

The grande dame of the evening may have inadvertently been the most punk of all. While others tried to conform to societal expectations, Ms.Wintour bucked the norm, and showed up in a demure floral Chanel gown. What looked the least in keeping with the theme,may just have out- punked everyone.

The Match Game

July 4, 2012

As the men’s fashion shows come to a close across Europe, some new trends are emerging for Spring 2013.

One of the most prevalent themes is matching, in a much more literal way than we’ve previously seen.

Here are just a few of the ways designers are playing the Match Game:

Riccardo Tisci is tickled pink to cut his impeccably tailored pieces in all one hue at Givenchy:

Artful layers are completely aligned, also at Givenchy:

Acne takes a directional approach to stripes:

Henry Guillaume cuts his checks on the bias for a short suit, matching shirt and shoes at Carven:

Roberto Cavalli likes head to toe aqua:


Salvatore Ferragamo matches the shirt,sweater and jacket, but chooses a contrasting tone for the pants:

Monochromatic dressing took the catwalks by a storm this season. All we can say is, “Game, set MATCH!”
