Chanel Hits Dallas

Yeeeeeehaw!!!!!!!! Karl Lagerfeld presents Chanel‘s Pre-Fall 2014 collection in Dallas, bringing an array of Rodeo, Native American, and Cowgirl inspired ensembles. 56 years after Coco Chanel, herself, spent time in Dallas declaring that she will start designing Haute Couture again. In my opinion, Lagerfeld couldn’t have picked a better time to present a collection in Dallas, as fringe, animal prints and furs of all kinds, and Knee-high Equestrian boots have pretty much been dominating the runways. At Chanel, the theme was high fashion mixed with the fashions of Dallas. As tweed gets paired with fringe, feathers, Cowgirl hats, and Cowboy boots. Ponchos and bohemian inspired printed skirts and sweaters get paired with the Equestrian boot. Sheer and Sparkly evening gowns get a bohemian print, and are dressed down when paired with a denim jacket. While ruffles and frills also get dressed down with denim. Rodeo gal outfits leave me obsessed, (especially the blue Rodeo gal look that Sigrid Agren sported, which even Zac Posen swooned about last night on Instagram). And ponytails are finished off with Chanel feathered hairpieces. The outcome: Just one Stunning Chanel show.

Mixing Rich Staples at Fendi Pre-Fall 2014

As Thanksgiving Break has sadly come to an end, and the 25 Days of Christmas countdown is going on. Karl Lagerfeld decides to leave us all obsessed with Fendi‘s Pre-Fall 2014 collection. Like Lagerfeld has been doing lately at Fendi, the collection shows off a very artistic and structural twist to it. This time, mixing some of my favorite rich staples for Fall. Including tweed trenches, draped with graphically cut fabrics, a oxblood and white leather jacket, must-have fur and feather boots and accessories, striped fur jackets, leather pants, and Ski-inspired silhouettes. All, into a must-have collection. Making me wish I were in the Austrian Alps.

Best Dressed at Last Night’s Victoria’s Secret After Party

After all the hype and excitement from Last night’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, then came the after party. Where all the models sported their best and Sexiest party dresses for the night.
My 5 favorites last night were: Kasia Struss, Sigrid Agren, Josephine Skriver, Caroline Brasch Nielson, and Martha Hunt.
As a big fan of Versace‘s Fall 2012 collection, myself, I couldn’t help but just lust over the STUNNING black sequined evening gown, with a slit of course, that Kasia Struss sported. And with that natural, glowing makeup and Sexy Victoria’s Secret waves. What could look any better?
The Society’s Sigrid Agren, Josephine Skriver, and Caroline Brasch Nielson each sported Stunning dresses, each personalizing their style. Making all 3 of them top my Best Dressed list. With Agren wearing a draping pink silk gown, similar to the pieces from Chanel‘s Spring 2010 Haute Couture collection, but more Sexy and modern. While Brasch Nielson sported a more preppy, military inspired white dress, with golden buttons going all the way up to the neck. Very Chic, but not too preppy. And Josephine Skriver sported a Sexy LBD, taking the plunge and showing off a Chic and Sexy peplum. And showing off the glowing Victoria’s Secret waves and makeup, what could make any look look better?
As for Martha Hunt, I Love the lace top with the Balmain skirt with chains, such a great contrast of feminine mixed with edgy. Seen a lot throughout Balmain’s most recent collections.
