NYFW: Victoria Beckham – When Military-Met-Sporty

AW12VBWeb1 NYFW: Victoria Beckham   When Military Met Sporty %tag

Victoria Beckham has proved that she is a force to be reckoned with in the fashion industry with her latest collection – I just absolutely loved it all. This collection really showed how much the label has evolved, her trademark fitted dresses were still present and looking amazing, but they were joined by beautifully tailored coats, flirty skirts and lots of cute details such as baseball collars, as well as military epaulettes and buttons.

This was a capsule collection of 22 day dresses, or as Victoria put it ‘workwear’ featuring shorter cocktail and day dresses, which was just a taster of the autumn/winter 2012 line. I have to admit my first thought was that there wasn’t any formal eveningwear, which I am sure was worrying a few stylists, but apparently there are options in the showroom for buyers and celebrities to feast on for the Oscars.

I loved her use of colour against a mainly black palette, the pops of red and sky blue looked amazing against the autumnal olive and maroon tones. Her use of contrasting colourways worked well on the sporty dresses, as did the inclusion of the magic trick dress that makes you look slimmer with the centre panel in a different colour – but most of all I adored the baseball-style collars and the styling of football socks slouched down with motorbike boots.

Overall this collection had all of her touches with the figure-hugging silhouettes but with an added confidence with the addition of gorgeous tailored coats, and I just adored the added twists of flirty short sleeveless dresses with epaulettes but nothing to hang them onto, as well as the harness-style straps, gold military button details and the exposed zips down the back of the dresses.

There was also a nod to her family for autumn/winter with David snapping away on the front row to the beanies inspired by his favourite headgear, and the baseball style touches coming from their son Romeo, and there was even a bag named after baby girl Harper.

NYFW AW12: Monique Lhuillier Brings The Glamour

MoniqueReds NYFW AW12: Monique Lhuillier Brings The Glamour %tag

I am always a little hesitant on blogging too many New York Fashion Week shows especially as I am not there in person, but I couldn’t resist posting these gorgeous gowns from the Monique Lhuillier autumn/winter 2012 collection showcased yesterday. I think I was in the minority when I loved Sarah Michelle Gellar’s blue ink swirl gown worn to the Golden Globes, but one thing that no one can dispute is how absolutely striking Monique Lhuiller’s floor-length gowns are – and I am sure after yesterdays show a number of high-profile stylists are trying to pull these looks in for their clients for possible Oscar options.

Sticking to a colour palette of mainly red and black, apparently inspired by the fact that it is the year of the dragon, there were some gorgeous fiery prints mixed in that was inspired by lava and volcanic stones and I just loved the vibrant red lippy and sleeked back hair. The whole show was just exquisite and I just loved all the long and lean silhouettes and I hope that a couple of these beauties make the Oscars.

Black always features on the red carpet at major award ceremonies and this collection was full of elegant black floor-skimming gowns. I loved the mix of sheer chiffon skirts, sheer mesh panels, lace detailing, and sexy thigh-high splits. I could totally see Angelina Jolie, Reese Witherspoon, or even Emma Stone working these gorgeous gowns – classics with a sexy twist always gets my vote.

These two dresses are my outside bets for the red carpet, I just love the colours, the textures and the silhouette of the volcanic rock print is just divine – I love the leather corset belt nipping in the waist.

I was already so excited for the Oscar de la Renta autumn/winter 2011 show taking place during New York Fashion Week on Wednesday. But after seeing this amazing preview sketch – I so can’t wait. Entitled Voyage, it really does make me intrigued to see the rest of the collection.

NYFW AW11: Rebecca Minkoff Delievers Bohemian Chic

I do love it when designers have live bands playing during their shows, it really does add something a little special and Rebecca Minkoff got it just right with The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, they really did introduce a bohemian gypsy flavour to proceedings.

This was RM’s debut runway show at New York Fashion Week, she has presented before but hasn’t done the full scale catwalk before, and you certainly couldn’t tell as everything from the styling, the clothes to the gorgeous handbags which she is known for were amazing, and it even attracted a celebrity crowd to the front row. Of course her pal Agyness Deyn was present, as were a number of Gossip Girl and The Hills stars – each known for carrying her gorgeous handbags.

For autumn/winter 2011, Rebecca was inspired by model Charlotte Kemp Muhl, and girlfriend of Sean Lennon *one-half of TGoaSTT*, so basically this is a collection for cool girls who want to have a mixture of bohemian and luxury.

Highlights for me had to be the maxi skirts with amazing prints, the oversized sweaters – especially the black sparkly off-the-shoulder jumper teamed with a leopard print skirt with an asymmetrical hem, black cigarette pants with patches on the knees *oh how I wish I was skinny either to wear*, and the leopard print jumpsuit I can see hitting a red carpet for a premiere or an MTV-style awards.

These three gorgeous dresses I can totally see being picked up by celebrities for promo and photo calls, as they are edgy and sexy with a casual appeal to them. I particularly love the watercolour print effect on the middle body-con dress – this would be amazing on Leighton Meester.

I have to put it out there I am not a fan of fur, and there was a little of it in this show, mainly as trims to the trench coats and jumpers.

There was a lot to take though from this collection, I loved the bohemian casual vibes to the pieces, the slouchy jumpers and the boyfriend blazers, as well as the use of tweed, leather and layering, and then adding in the romantic feel with the dresses, it was certainly a collection for the cool girls *fingers crossed I’m one of them*.

The show’s finale however was simply stunning, a flowy floor-length v-neck gown in a sheer green and black print swept down the catwalk – this is certainly a red carpet dress for a premiere.

Simply a gorgeous end to a great collection.

Last week one of my favourite designers Oscar de la Renta showcased his pre-fall 2011 collection in New York, and he certainly didn’t disappoint.

I loved the romantic collection, full of ruffles, sequins, draping, full skirts and evening gowns that I can’t wait to see on the red carpet, all sent down the runway to Barry White’s Love Theme.

Here are my three favourite looks, especially loving the off-the-shoulder Barbie pink floor-skimming gown, with a thigh-high split and a silver detailing around the waist – gorgeous.
