Plastic Loving: Melissa Adds Jason Wu And Gareth Pugh

I have kind of gone a little crazy over the Jason Wu for Target collection that I totally forgot that the New York-based designer has also teamed up with Brazilian plastic shoe brand, Melissa. Both shoes are based on pre-existing Melissa bestsellers, my favourite the Ultragirl ballet flat, and the Lady Dragon peep-toe sling-back, with both coming with a Wu injection – the ballet flats with a Miss Wu owl logo bow and a sunburst design is adorned on the heels, which has come directly from Wu’s autumn/winter 2011 collection.

Both styles are available in black, merlot, and putty, with the flats also coming in a nude smoke design as well, and all feature lace printed lining, which looks cool on the wine coloured ‘merlot’.

The plastic candy-smelling brand is also continuing its collaboration with Vivienne Westwood with new colours for the iconic Lady Dragon heart adorned sling-backs; and new for spring is a graphic collection with British designer Gareth Pugh featuring his signature zig-zag print.

The Gareth Pugh collection comprises of two styles: a flat peep-toe Ultragirl adorned with his signature zig-zag print; and a gladiator sandal which comes in combinations of black, white and silver – both inspired by the designer’s spring/summer 2009 collection.

From the Melissa White collection – my favourite has to be these yellow printed Melissa Peace wedges – how cute are they!!

Music Video Loving: Beyonce – Run The World (Girls)

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBmMU_iwe6U&feature=player_embedded

Beyonce premiered her new song last week, Run The World (Girls), and as you would expect it is filled with fierce poses, dancing and an amazing selection of designer clobber. I counted eight looks, admittedly I may have missed a few as it does flash from one scene to the next quite quickly, but I spotted pieces from Lee McQueen’s last collection, Givenchy, Jean Paul Gaultier, Emilio Pucci, Brian Lichtenberg and Gareth Pugh.

One of the first looks (above) is a gorgeous Alexander McQueen red silk satin dress adorned with gold embroidery from the autumn/winter 2010 collection, teamed with McQueen thigh-high boots. Oh, and for added drama, Beyonce is standing tall next to a gorgeous lion.

Surrounded by her army Beyonce shows off her fab figure and incredible dance skills in these Norma Kamali fringe shorts with a black bustier, a Brian Lichtenberg patchwork fur vest from the autumn/winter 2011 collection and fringed Alexander Wang heels. This is a hot look!!

Amongst all the post-apocalyptic drama comes this gorgeous Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci dress from the spring/summer 2011 collection. The detailing in this dress looks stunning against the derilick scene.

But my favourite look has to be this stunning black Jean Paul Gaultier couture gown from the spring 2011 collection, its fabulous bold feathered shoulders and cut-out detailing to the bodice.

One of the most striking costume changes has to be this gold scale Gareth Pugh dress and heels. This is a very futuristic look and I love the dramatic shoulder and the flicky skirt, and how tiny is her waist!!

My least favourite look has to be this vibrant yellow Emilio Pucci gown with thigh-high splits on both sides and a plunging neckline. Makes perfect sense for her dance moves, but against all the other stunning pieces this one didn’t work as well for me. Out of the two Pucci dresses I prefer the racing green sequinned number below, with its cross-body slash.

For Beyonce’s second wear from Norma Kamali she looks amazing in her Aztec cut-out jumpsuit, which you can buy here for $575.

I am so glad that artists like Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Rihanna still make large production music videos. This video shot by Francis Lawrence really is spectacular, from the concept of Beyonce being a warrior chief and having her own army to the crazy dance scenes, this is a great video.
