Dolce & Gabbana Channel 1940s Inspired Sillouhettes for Spring

For Spring, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana take inspiration from Ancient Rome, while using 1940s inspired Silhouettes; while giving the collection it’s Glamorous Dolce & Gabbana magic.

Throughout the beginning of the collection, models are seen wearing Beautiful dresses, printed with images of Ancient Roman Ruins. Towards the middle of the collection though, it switches to Golden Cocktail dresses, many with the Ancient Roman coins printed on them. But besides the Ancient Roman theme scene throughout the collection, Dolce & Gabbana also include a more Feminine side to the collection with Beautiful Cherry Blossoms. Looking almost oeuvre, many models channel Beautiful Cherry Blossomed gowns. Perfect for a Spring or Summer wedding.

The silhouettes though, were very 1940s inspired. With Peplum, Lace, Polka Dots, The Fur, and the Iconic Hourglass figure. A style which has always been a favorite of mine. As seen at many of the Fall shows, many of the looks were belted at the waist, creating that very Ladylike Hourglass figure. Dolce & Gabbana interpret that trend, using Gold belts with a Roman coin in the center. Elements of Polka Dots and Fur were also seen throughout many parts of the collection, either paired with an Ancient Roman printed pencil skirt, and paired with an ancient coined full skirt. Each way, Oh-So-Chic and very Dolce & Gabbana.

And the finale, just STUNNING. Filled with an array of Golden Cocktail dresses. Each perfect for a night out, or even to a Wedding.

The collection, overall was extremely Feminine, Sexy, and Modern. I always love how Dolce & Gabbana take inspiration from something totally different each season, making it look Sexy and Flatter just about any Women’s figure. A Sexy Black Lace Dolce & Gabbana dress for Spring? Yes Please!!!!

House of Holland Spring 2014

The first thing I thought when I saw photos of Henry Holland‘s latest collection was, “I NEED Every Piece from this Collection!”

Henry Holland’s ‘Home Girl’ theme took a ladylike turn this season with, the models walking pink and purple fluffy clouds. Showing off Stunning Ladylike looks with a bit of an edge. The collection makes me think of Cara Delevingne‘s Style, but with a more feminine twist. With Holland including elements, of Floral print and lace baseball caps, Plaid ensembles, and pieces with many Graphics on them, really bringing a reminscene of Cara Delevingne.

Henry Holland’s ladylike ‘Homegirl’ theme is definitely the perfect collection for any Women who likes to dress feminine and wants edgy separates, OR any Women who likes to dress egdy but wants feminine separates.

Holland uses lots of plaid checkered printed pieces, and pairs them with lace and nicely tailored jackets, for a really fun and feminine vibe.

Ralph Lauren was inspired by life for his Beautiful Spring 2014 collection, as he explained to Harrod’s Marigay McKee at the show. Explaining many of the bursts of brights, and the Beautiful floral and checkered prints. The collection really brings such a Chic Mod 60s vibe with the Monichromatic bright shifts, Round sunglasses a favorite of mine, and the Beautiful preppy Black and White checkers and floral printed get-ups paired with black knee high socks.

Models: Nastya Kusakina, Carolina Thaler, and Vika Falieva show off their Beautiful looks at the Zuhair Murad Fall 2013 Haute Couture collection.

Zuhair Murad designed a Beautiful Haute Couture collection. Using many styles from mermaid to short to cutouts to long and flowy to some even with a Chic peplum. Each dress had one thing in common: they all flatter the waist, and the body of a women. Murad also used many colors: Cream, Emerald, Oxblood, Navy, Sky Blue, Gold, Charcoal, and Indiago. Murad also used many different fabrics from lace to velvet to silk, and even sparkles. I adored the lace and velvet contrast on Nastya Kusakina’s oxblood dress, and fell in love with the feathers on some of the dresses. After the last model made her exit, The Zuhair Murad bride came out wearing a Beautiful lace white gown with a gracious gown. The veil, very puffy, and Beautiful in front of the face, but long and gracious in the back. Such a Beautiful ending to Fall 2013 Haute Couture Fashion Week. Sooooo Chic, can’t wait to see what creations Jennifer Lopez and Sofia Vegara wear from this Beautiful Zuhair Murad Haute Couture collection.
