The hair was left down or in a Natural, effortless ponytail, (depending on what look the model wore). The makeup was left very natural, and Beautiful with an Edgy zig-zag cat eye across the eye. Makeup Done by the Estée Lauder crew.

Derek Lam begins his collection, sending models down the runway in navy or black and white, not your tablecloth checkered printed ensembles. Some with a cloth tied around their head, for a very modern, Gypsy or African inspired look.

Models then come down the runway in Beautiful trench coats and shirts, paired over very feminine lace dresses, in your light, more pastel shades. Lam pairs the feminine and Girly ensembles with Gladiator sandals, very gypsy inspired. For an edge to the Sweet lace and pastels.

At the end of the show, Lam sends models down the runway in either black or white dresses, with the shoulders peeking through. Each with a Beautiful fringed neck scarf. The last few looks consisted of Beautiful monochromatic gowns, my favorite a strapless gown in the shade of Daffodil.

Looks of the Week Wednesday – Recycling Clothing like Cara Delevingne

For this week’s Look of the Week, many people like recycle the clothes that they wear, and over the past few days, Supermodel Cara Delevingne has been recycling pieces from her wardrobe in her Streetstyle. While keeping her Chic, edgy punk style in place.

Last week, Cara Delevingne wore a Chic navy blue and emerald plaid matching jacket, and baggy pant. With a nice, white button-down blouse. And then yesterday, Delevingne wore a similar baggy plaid pant, with a black cardigan, grey tank, and her signature black sneakers seen throughout many of her Streetstyle looks this past week. And over the weekend at a V Festival, Delevingne wore the floral print and black and white polka dotted baggy pant seen in my recent blog post, “Cara Delevingne, Chic? Or Not Chic?” With the same grey tank and the same Chic black cardigan and sneakers. And from my blog post metioned up above, Delevingne wears the same Chic pants, shoes, and the matching floral print and black and white polka dotted top. Last week, Delevingne wore a grey tweed printed baggy pant, matching jacket, and a Chic silk pink and neon purple button-down blouse. With of course the black leather sneakers and a multicolored swirl cap. While this past Sunday, Delevingne wore the same grey tweed printed baggy pant, jacket, and shoes BUT instead with a Chic white tee. Recycling many of her Chic, wardrobe staples. Remember, don’t be afraid to recycle your wardrobe staples, many celebs and models do it too!

image image image image image image image image image image

Models: Ashleigh Good, Antonia Wesseloh, Kremi, Mackenzie Drazen, and Hedivg Palm show off some of my favorite looks from the Bouchra Jarr Fall 2013 Haute Couture collection.

For Fall 2013 Haute Couture, Bouchra Jarrar played with many different textures, keeping one thing in balance, the neutral shades used. Black and white were key shades. Jarrar also played with many fabrics like silk, tweed, and leather. There were many outfits in a drapey material, that were either head to toe black, or head to toe white. Knits and furs were also used in the collection. And black and white plaid jackets in punk biker chick like style. There were also dresses, colorblocking in nude, black and white. All Very Chic and Beautiful.

Hedi Slimane Presents a Very Sexy and Dramtic Saint Laurent Resort 2014 Collection

Set in what appears to be an empty floor filled with windows in a building somewhere in New York City, Supermodel and Prada muse Sasha Pivovarova is photographed in black and white, showing off the Dramatic and Sexy Saint Laurent Resort 2014 collection.
Since the collection is photographed in black and white, it seems the many of the colors used were blacks, navy, browns, and maybe even some reds and blues. Pivovarova wears many Short, Sexy black and white dresses in many fabrics like leather and chiffon in many different styles. Each with a little Sexy, Edge added to it like Sexy cutouts around the sleeve, and a studded belt tied around a long flowy chiffon dress. Slimane also designed many leather jacket and short ensembles. The shorts, usually leather, and the top in a Chic black, sheer fabric. Very Dramtic, Sexy and Beautiful and of course, Chic.

At Vera Wang Resort 2014, Classy timeless pieces like a  baby blue checkered print blouse, and Classy pieces in Navy, kind of nautical like were given a Chic update with black vertical striped masculine suit style tailored pants, jackets, and vests. Classy black and white stripes were used in many styles: vertical, horizontal, big, or small. And of course lace. Black and White were key colors. And hints of baby blue were seen throughout the collection. The hair was left down, showing off effortlessly done waves, very causal just like the collection, and a statement purple lip, adding the extra color to the mostly neutral collection. Kind of like at the Vera Wang Fall 2013 collection. Very Classy Casual Chic.
