Another day, another day at New York Fashion Week! Rebecca Taylor's collection was full of ladylike separates in pink, blue and soft grey. These combine a classic ladylike tailored look for a young sassy fashionista. If you ever pondered on how to make your work attire a little more colourful, the look on the left is your answer! Paired with a grey blouse and sweater jacket, it looks like grey is becoming the new black. The middle look is how I like to look when out on the town during the winter, a sugar 'n' spice cocktail dress with a chic fur coat over it. It's the way to cozy up when the temperature goes down. The last look shows how to add a little flair to a monochromatic look, add ruffles and a little texture. Now no one can ask why your outfit is so blue.
He had his first break when he dressed Michelle Obama and has had oodles of success since then. His latest collection was inspired by the Baroque Period and the historic Chateau de Versailles, which created a beautiful collection for the chic princesses in all of us (I am talking to you Blair Waldorf!). High collars and crew necks seemed to be the shirt style of choice with this gorgeous black lace sleeveless blouse contrasted with a mustard yellow silk pleated skirt in the look to the left. This is how you do leather and lace as elegantly shown in the middle look, with the sunglasses adding an air of mystery to the outfit. The look to the right, is perfect for any cocktail parties you may have listed in your fashion calendars. The feather ruffles add a playful touch with the hint of red adding a dose of glamour! Bravo, Monsieur Wu!
My favourite Jason Wu looks didn't end with his above the knee looks up top, they also include these beautiful gowns that he had plenty of in his Fall 2011 collection. The gown to the left is Chinoiserie-inspired and very vintage-looking with the delicate flower pattern and small hints of gold. Shimmery and stunning. If you read Amanda's Fashion Spot, you know I love a red dress and this one on the right is no exception. With lightweight chiffon and satin that lightly floated down the runway, the black lace mask made a nod to the lace loving Baroque period and the look that I plan on wearing at my next masquerade party!
