jason wu is the prince of pretty and polished ladylike looks, and this season he does not disappoint! my favourite is the show-stopping chartreuse ball-gown with the black-bowed waist belt (reminds me of oscar de la renta’s spring 2004 RTW pink dress with the black belt that AlekSANdr Petrovsky gave to Carrie in Season 6 Episode 14 “The Ick Factor”) – i’m loving the bold red lipstick with the soft spring colours:**update** felt i HAD to include this backstage photo of the “crown-of-thorn” headpiece worn at the jason wu show (image from vogue.com) now THAT would be a challenging DIY project**:
nina ricci’s peter copping produced a romantic, dreamy, ladylike collection for spring. I would have never guessed it, but i’m loving the spanish high comb or peineta inspired hair pieces that were used to style the looks (and cute little thin waist-belts seem to be the favourite accessory)!even the name “Preen” suggests the delicate action of a beautiful bird tidying its feathers – it makes me picture a canary gingerly arranging the barbs of its feathers with its beak in order to be smooth and streamlined again. this spring 2012 Preen collection is beautiful in its simplicity and cut, soft and fresh in its colour palette:hope everyone has a great weekend! i’m off to the Sunshine Coast!
