Best of Paris Fashion Week- Fall 2011 from Balenciaga, Chloe, Miu Miu, Rick Owens, Carven

Best of Paris Fashion Week- Fall 2011. Runway Review Snippets: Our top 5 from Paris are Balenciaga, Chloe, Miu Miu, Rick Owens, Carven. Paris Fashion Week, as always is the most directional of cities when it comes to silhouettes and attitudes.This season, without exception, the Parisian runways offers a dramatic shift in form to a more oversized, almost cocoon shape and many with strong exaggerated shoulders. A shape that is strikingly visual on the runway and may need some modifying for the everyday woman not to appear bulky.There's a very distinct shift in shapes that you should note, both for next fall, and what you can scout on on the racks now. Did you notice that Chloe made it on our list again? Yes, it's a favorite collection here.Our VagabondNyc's share the Top Five Best of Paris Fashion Week for you… videos too. — S.H.

Most Stylish Blogger Award and 7 Things You Didn’t Know About Me

Award Season Starts Early Thanks to Jewels from the Roving Stove . Plus, my picks for The Most Stylish Bloggers!Thank you, thank you to the gorgeous and talented Julie Anne Rhodes, aka Jewels from The Roving Stove for the Most Stylish Blogger Nomination!I'm more than flattered to get the thumbs up for constantly amusing you with the Impromptu Madness videos that Brad Boles and I have so much fun working on. If we had our own TV talk show (hint, hint out there), we would love to have YOU as our resident cooking expert!In lieu of an acceptance speech, part of the the Most Stylish Blogger nomination is to reveal seven things that you did not know about the stylish blogger. The other part of the award is to nominate seven other stylish bloggers.In no particular order, here are my nominations for the Most Stylish Bloggers:1. VagabondNycVintage clothing gurus Andrea Perrini & Naveed Hussain are the real deal when it comes to spot on fashion assessments. The two are like a walking fashion history book with a very stylized edge, and that's what makes editorialized vintage clothing shop and blog so distinctive. The VagabondNyc's are part of our Contributor team. 2. EyePreferParisRichard Nahem left New York for Paris and decided to do what he does best, go to the most divinely unique places and tell you about it! His customized walking tours of Paris are brought live to his blog. Richard is my oldest friend and a team Contributor. Oh, he also stretches a mean pair of shoes but that should have gone under things that you don't know about me. 3. IWantToBeHerAndrea Linnet does what we all secretly do. She sizes up a fab outfit, fantasizes about being that girl for a moment, but then she tells you where to get the goods. If Sybil was chic, she would live on I Want To Be Her! Andrea is the co-founder and former creative director of Lucky Magazine. 4. Humor ChicaleXsandro Palombo's daily society portrait blog is about as tongue in chic as an illustrated cartoon about fashion, style and all it's glamourous players could ever be! Highly addictive satire and very on the mark. 5. Marie ForleoI thought Marie was so spunky from taking her fitness classes at Crunch & find her upbeat, down-to-earth, girl power motivation to make each woman live rich, happy and hot totally inspiring!6. RedCarpet-FashionAwards.comCatherine Kallon has an outstanding photographic fashion memory, bar none! Do you want to know which celebrity wore what and where to get much of it, she's your girl!7. DoIHaveLipstickOnMyTeeth.comKim White is a make up artist who knows how to put the fun in beauty. Whether it's Mugshot Monday where beauty violators are brought to justice or her Bathroom Beauty videos, you'll get your gorgeous on and leave with a smile… and that's the best beauty bonus around.Honorary 7+. Julie Anne Rhodes, Jewels from The Roving Stove so shoot me, I'm nominating Julie Anne back! No only is she gorgeous, glam and totally the real deal but she's the downtown girl's Nigella Lawson without the finger licking.

Fashion Week Roundup- Best of New York, Spring 2011

Naveed Hussain has been taking a breathe and pondering New York Fashion Week- not as piece by piece show, but what stood out above the NYFW fray and complexities of the week. — S.H.We’ve been doing a lot of whining at the pace and scale of fashion in this day and age of globalism and an unsteady economy.Fashion today has become a world-wide beast, it’s everywhere, and isn’t that a good thing? Shouldn’t this mean we are all sitting at home with a closet full of the best we can buy? Okay well, that is possible, but we think it’s coming at a great cost in the long run.Most importantly, there is too much fashion too fast.Fashion is now rotating on a two month scale and frankly, by the time the items hit the shelves, we cannot even remember them. There was a time when we could spot something a mile away and tell you it’s label.Today, we look at the calenders each season and cannot pronounce half of the names on it, and now you can supposedly buy fashion on the Home Shopping Network & at J.Crew. This was not possible ten years ago and it is still not today.>> MORE: Fashion Shows and Runway Reviews

Best of Resort Fashion- A Season Ahead, Just In Time

A girl could lose her head. Or at least spin it around so many times that it will catapult her neck and land in a frisson of colliding fashion seasons that all ineditably fall into one: What looks right on YOU now! A girl could lose her head. Or at least spin it around so many times that it will catapult her neck and land in a frisson of colliding fashion seasons that all ineditably fall into one: What looks right on YOU now! Spring is shown in late summer (at least by the scroching temps merely a week before NYFW). Fall in early winter. Then, there’s resort… resort? You have yet to think about autumn leaves!In this insane goggle-muggle where fashion is shown in the time frame of when retailers need to place their orders for the following season and magazines need to pull for their three-month lead times, Fashion Week has taken a life of its own and is reported the nano-second that the model’s Louboutin hits the catwalk. What human with a robust life outside of the business could keep track of it all?Since the smaller, more gentle fashion season of resort can be the first taste of what’s on trend for spring or a healthy mix of fall transending into a more nuanced state, we bring you resort runway 2010 from around the globe. Not in store just yet, but a heady update of what you may see on the Spring catwalks next week. Get inspired to create your own trendsetting season morph.

Best of Haute Couture Fall 2010 – The Glamour, The Fantasy, The Allure

“As we prepare for the Spring 11 Fashion Weeks, we reflect the unimaginable beauty of what was Haute Couture Fall 2010. Naveed Hussain has spent some time digesting the magnificence of all that is available for only a privileged few.Haute Couture has been a tireless subject of debate. While many like to continually point out it’s weak sales across the board and diminishing relevance in society. Although that may be the case, wasn’t it always?Isn’t couture about that unattainable and highly elusive luxury item we all like to dream of having? Hasn’t globalism made “luxury” too readily attainable?The nine designers who showed for Haute Couture Fall 2010 clearly understand the craft beautifully. However, there were four contributions whose focus and edit were so precise that we want to take a moment and applaud them.These designers respectively pay homage to the past with their own distinctive signatures while moving things forward with the kind of youthful gusto couture could thrive on.John Galliano at Christian Dior, Ricardo Tisci at Givenchy, Jean Paul Gaultier, Maria Grazia Chiuri & Pier Paolo Piccioli at Valentino seem determined to energize Haute Couture with troves of tasty options.”
