New York Fashion Week has officially wrapped. Before we leave the city that never sleeps its time to look back at another show from NYFW. This time its a designer with luxurious and the most stunning gowns that I’m sure we would all love to have in our wardrobes. It is of course Marchesa. Known for their extravagant and beautiful gowns made perfect for any red carpet, this collection does not disappoint.
This collection had a very elegant and feminine feel with a vision of the 1920s running through it. The beaded and embellished gowns and tops would not look out of place in the 20s era and the looks definitely had the old Hollywood style glamour theme. The hair and makeup also matched with the models sporting a soft curled look and a sultry feminine dark berry lip.
Marchesa is known for their floral designs and their wide tulle silhouettes. These norms did not escape in this collection. There was a heavy focus on poppies throughout the show with many looks incorporating the embellished floral design as well as following a red and black agenda. In addition there was also no escaping of their usual fuller sized dresses with the odd couple of sizeable gowns but other than that the collection was primarly sleek and embellished to the nines. Well Done Georgina and Keren! Check out the rest of the collection here.

Before I head straight into the high fashion craziness that is fashion week I just wanted to say a big thank you to all my lovely wordpress followers as I have just reached 300 followers, so thank you so much 🙂
Anyway, February only means one thing. Nope not Valentines Day or Pancake Day, nope it is of course the start of fashion week! Fashion Week for Fall 2015 finally kicked off this week in New York and I will be sharing some of the highlights here. Now if I uttered the words ‘Herve Leger’ there is probably one thing you and most people are all thinking: the bandage dress. Herve Leger is famed for their figure-hugging bodycon dresses which were quite the thing a few years back with celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and pretty much everyone rocking one. Times have slightly moved on though as that trend slowly passed.
The bandage dress however still holds a place in the Herve Leger collection but with a slight twist and a much better one. Many dresses stuck to the similar bandage dress design with embellished features. The collection was quite varied from the biker embellished look to the full on prints. There were bold kaleidoscopic style prints and much more toned down monochrome and darker heavy embellished style dresses. Instead of the usual tight-fitting silhouette, this collection has a varied style with a-lines and peplum hemlines. The typical bandage dress may have had its day but full on prints and change are here to stay! Check out the rest of the collection here.

New York Fashion Week has just came to a stunning close but before we fast forward to London here is a look at the Nanette Lepore Spring 2014 collection that hit the runway on Wednesday. There was a clear sense of girly-ness in this collection with delicate shades and floral designs. Work-wear seemed a part in this collection with a modern take on suits for women with a pop of colour however there was a variety of pieces in the collection suited to everyday wear. The silhouettes were more relaxed in this collection with floaty A-line styles perfect for spring. Overall a beautiful show! Below are some pieces from the collection. What do you think of this collection? The rest of the collection can be viewed at Style.com.

You may be beginning to see hats, scarves and all winter accessories pile in to your favorite retail store however forgetting that, all eyes are focused on all the looks of next season. Thats right, Spring 2014 has begun (well on the runway anyway) as Fashion Week is well into force with flying starts in New York. I had recently taken quite an interest in Kate Spade after reality TV star and fashion designer Lauren Conrad had mentioned her a few times and after seeing this collection I can totally see what all the buzz is about! There is so much pop and energy in this collection and yet it holds so much simplicity which I love. The bold colours of corals, yellows and blues are enough to make this collection spark while the clothes hold simple patterns and designs making them highly wearable. This collection is very girly and sweet which I personally really like and its fair to say I would not mind one of those coral pink coats.. Below are some pieces from the collection.

Now its time for the best dressed… So here are my top 3 from the Met Ball 2013. What do you think ? Who was your Best Dressed ? Credit to bettyconfidential and Daily Mail (Getty,Startracks/Rex) for images.
Firstly, Cara Delevingne looked fantastic in Burberry. Cara has nailed on the punk theme here with this beautiful studded gown which features a plunging neckline. Cara has also went for a smoky eye look to add to the look and overall has successfully managed to look sensational with a bit of punk.
Next is Les Miserables star Anne Hathaway. First of all I must say Anne looks great with the blonde hair and suits her very well. The blonde hair and dark eyes looks great in achieving the rebellious punk look. Anne looked great in a black vintage Valentino gown with feathered sleeves and mesh panels showing a bit of skin. Anne has clearly stuck to the punk here and looks great.
Last but not least is Sienna Miller, Sienna rocked Burberry with a stunning white gown made complete with the killer gold studded biker jacket. Sienna has nailed the punk look complete with a studded silver headband, studded earrings and a small studded clutch. Overall Sienna owns the punk theme!
The Met Ball in New York is one of the most highly anticipated events of the year. Many A-list celebrities gathered in their couture gowns and some in their well interesting ensembles. This years theme was Punk a very popular trend around the 70s which was highly influenced from British designer Vivienne Westwood. Not everyone makes the best impression at these sort of events and many were very downhill in the fashion stakes this year. Here below are my 3 worst dressed celebrities from the Met Ball. Do you agree? Who was your Worst Dressed ? Credit to bettyconfidential, omg.yahoo and Daily Mail (Rex,David Fisher ) for images.
Firstly, Kate Upton makes the list. The model failed to impress in this very frumpy looking green dress by Diane Von Furstenberg. Her hair also looks very messy as if she hasn’t even styled it. Not to mention the theme of punk in this outfit; seems rather invisible here. While she is very pretty, this dress does her no favors what so ever and this dress is too plain for the Met Ball aswell as not suited to the theme either.
Next on the list, is mom-to-be Kim Kardashian. Kim wore a floral print Givenchy dress with a slit up the side, this dress is completely unflattering considering she is pregnant. The dress is tight to the figure and for someone who is pregnant that is a big mistake. There is no words to really describe this but she does look like she is wearing old curtains, the print is too much and for her figure not suited at all. And yet again were is the punk …
And last but not least Miley Cyrus. First of all I have to credit her for actually dressing to the theme but I cannot really credit her for doing it well .. The hair speaks for itself really – over the top a bit and complete with the Marc Jacobs fish net dress it all seemed a bit more like for a fancy dress party rather than high end fashion.
