When it comes to store takeovers Harrods has the competition beat, last year they allowed Dior to move onto the fourth floor of its Knightsbridge department store, the year before that it was Chanel, and this month is Pradasphere, dedicated to the diverse passions of Miuccia Prada and her amazing Prada collections.
Who: Lupita Nyong’o
Where: At the Vanity Fair Oscar Party 2014 in West Hollywood, California
Wearing: A seafoam green Miu Miu belted silk gown with green beaded fringe along the neckline, teamed with matching peep-toe heels and the same Fred Leighton headband from the main event, oh and carrying her Oscar statue
Verdict: I loved the pale blue Prada gown and it was perfect for Lupita to float up the stairs to collect her Best Supporting Actress Oscar, but this cute column gown was the fun party frock that the Vanity Fair party needs and kind of reminds me of the change Jennifer Lawrence made last year in its silhouette.
I love the green beading on the bodice, it really does make this dress shine, and I love that she kept that cute Fred Leighton headband on – it was such a hit on the Oscars red carpet.
Which look do you prefer – her blue Prada gown or this Miu Miu beauty?
I know we haven’t even got through the brunt of autumn/winter yet but the spring/summer 2012 campaigns are already hitting the Internet and the first to catch my eye had to be this Prada 1950’s inspired shoot snapped by Steven Meisel.
Miuccia Prada is known for her bright colours and retro prints, both feature quite heavily in this campaign and I love it, especially against the bright blue backdrop!!
I think anyone other than Miuccia would find it hard making a gas station look fashionable but by adding Natasha Poly, Meghan Collison, Elise Crombez, Ymre Stiekema, and Katryn Kruger into the mix this is one sexy campaign. I don’t know why but as soon as I saw these images my mind went back to that amazing vintage-inspired shoot that Vogue Hombre Mexico did – maybe it is because it had Prada styling.
But what I do love about this campaign other than the amazing hot rod cars, has to be the low angle the campaign is shot in, it really does showcase the amazing collection and styling in the best possible light – flirty, sexy, ladylike and very colourful. The accessories really do stand out for me, I have already added that yellow tote to my 2012 wish list!!!
