Resort 2013: Givenchy Bring Us The Modern Gypsy

Resort2013Givenchy2 Resort 2013: Givenchy Bring Us The Modern Gypsy %tag

Scarf prints that we saw in D&G’s last ever collection and that are embracing the high street for spring/summer 2012 aren’t going anywhere as Riccardo Tisci brought his gypsy vibe to the streets of New York for his resort collection. The gorgeous collection is filled with the striking scarf motifs of paisley printed patchworks on silk satin, twill and jersey, mixed with geometric blocks in colours of black, white and red, creating divine eye-catching statement pieces.

It seems that the modern nomadic travelling woman is all about mixing and matching and likes a clean-cut architectural silhouette, I think this is the best ‘urban couture’ I have ever seen. I loved the mix of the long-flowing belted eveningwear dresses, which featured long-sleeves slit all the way to the shoulders, creating a cape-like effect, which continued on the tops and outerwear, alongside slouchy billowing sarouel pants that were teamed with Givenchy’s signature tailored pieces such as the boxy jacket and shirts.

The collection was complemented with strong accessories from boxy shaped handbags to small clutches, and the footwear featured everything from open-toe high gladiator boots to high-heeled loafers and ankle-strap sandals that I am sure will be gracing the red carpet soon.

I also loved the large geometric belts, the sculptural rings, and of course the New York street-style shoot, how cute is that fluffy dog!!!Resort2013Givenchy1 Resort 2013: Givenchy Bring Us The Modern Gypsy %tag

Cannes 2012: Diane Kruger Looking Girlie In Calvin Klein

DianeCalvinKlein Cannes 2012: Diane Kruger Looking Girlie In Calvin Klein %tag
Who: Actress & 2012 Cannes Film Festival Juror Diane Kruger

Where: At Calvin Klein’s women in film event in Cannes

Wearing: A coral textured midi Calvin Klein Collection dress with a plunging neckline, that was modified from the autumn/winter 2012 collection it was presented in black; finishing her look were white Givenchy strappy heels and a metallic box clutch

Verdict: The first thing I noticed and I am sure everyone else did as well has to be her boobs they look incredible in this dress without making her look tacky, which is hard to do when they are completely on show like this. I love the colour, I love the midi length on her, the silhouette is sweet, and her heels are insane and work perfectly with the dress, but it doesn’t feel enough for Cannes.

Don’t get me wrong she does look stunning, and I am loving her slick ponytail, but this dress is just nice, and nice just isn’t enough for Cannes. Am I being extra picky? I feel that if this was any other party, photocall, or premiere I probably would have loved it but something is holding me back – what do you think is this look a winner?

Met Gala 2012: Beyonce In Givenchy Haute Couture

Beyonce Met Gala 2012: Beyonce In Givenchy Haute Couture %tag

Who: Beyoncé

Where: At the Met Gala 2012 in New York

Wearing: A Givenchy Haute Couture gown by Riccardo Tisci, featuring a beaded corseted bodysuit with sheer fabric and a ombre black and purple cascading feathered train

Verdict: Wow, what a way to make your post-baby red carpet appearance by wearing a dramatic gown that leaves little to the imagination. It is such a shame that she was so late to the red carpet as I would have loved to have seen this gown in motion, but hey she wanted a dramatic entrance I am sure to show off her amazing body.

I like that the fact that she was daring with this gown, but there is something stopping me from loving it,  the train is insane but I can’t put my finger on why I am not feeling it, maybe it is a little more revealing than I would have wanted from her.

What do you think? Do you love this racy look from Beyoncé?

Met Gala 2012: Hottest Couple – Gisele and Tom Brady

gisele2 Met Gala 2012: Hottest Couple   Gisele and Tom Brady %tag

There were a couple of trends at last night’s Met Gala, high shine shimmery gowns, pops of oranges and lemons, feathered beauties and then there were the classic black gowns from the likes of Rihanna, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Liv Tyler, and Mary-Kate Olsen, but one that stood out the most had to be Gisele’s Givenchy Haute Couture gown by Riccardo Tisci.

She has a head start on most on the red carpet with her model looks, incredibly long legs, which she worked in an Angelina Jolie kind of way, and then she has a hunky husband to accompany her, how is this fair???

There weren’t that many thigh-high splits last night, maybe they knew that they couldn’t compete with Gisele, but she really does look amazing in this sparkly gown.

Met Gala 2012: Coco Rocha Goes Vintage Givenchy

coco1 Met Gala 2012: Coco Rocha Goes Vintage Givenchy %tag

Who: Coco Rocha

Where: At the 2012 Met Gala in New York

Wearing: A vintage yellow and fuchsia Givenchy jumpsuit, paired with Sergio Rossi pink heels and a gold clutch

Verdict: Well Coco bought this vintage Givenchy beauty at auction and as it once belong to Elizabeth Taylor the biggest fashion event of the year was the perfect place to show it off. What I love about Coco is that she went all out for this look even dying her hair pink at the tips to make this one standout outfit.

I am not sure if it wows as much as all the gorgeous gowns, but I do appreciate it when people try different things on the red carpet.

Coco has tweeted that this jumpsuit is now going into storage, I suppose she is right where else could you wear something as bold as this?

84th Oscars: Rooney Mara In Givenchy Couture

RooneyGivenchy 84th Oscars: Rooney Mara In Givenchy Couture %tag

Who: Rooney Mara

Where: At the 84th Academy Awards held at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: A a panelled cream coloured Givenchy couture gown with mixed laces with multi-layered chiffon lining

Verdict: The buzz about Twitter before I had even seen a picture of Rooney was that she wasn’t wearing black, I think that kind of says how much she wears black. OK so cream isn’t quite a stretch in the colourful department, but it is a start, no matter what colour she wears though she always looks stunning. I can’t believe that she only picked out this gorgeous gown this morning – crazy – but with a figure like hers I am sure she can fit into anything.

Superbowl: Madonna In Givenchy Haute Couture

madonnagivenchy8 Superbowl: Madonna In Givenchy Haute Couture %tag

Madonna really knows how to make an entrance, I absolutely loved her halftime show at the Super Bowl XLVI match between the New York Giants and The Patriots last night. From the word go with her coming on flanked by dancers dressed as gladiators, to the fab performance of ‘Vogue’ – and her amazing wardrobe created exclusively for her by Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci – this was a spectacular 12 minute set.

As well as ‘Vogue’, Madonna also delved into her massive archive and sang some of her other hits including ‘Music’ and ‘Like a Prayer’, as well as her new song ‘Give Me All Your Lurvin’, which I have to say isn’t growing on me – yet.

Some people on Twitter were saying that she looked tired and didn’t move great – come on people let’s not forget she is 53-years-old – I thought she worked the performance really well – especially loved her shuffling with LMFAO.

My favourite of the Givenchy Haute Couture looks by Riccardo Tisci had to be the hand-embroidered gold cape that Madonna wore for the performance opener, which was worn over a black mini dress accessories with a hand-studded belt and an exquisite Philip Treacy headpiece.

I also adored this gorgeous embellished black coat with sequins and micro pearls for her divine performance of ‘Like A Prayer’.
