spring 2012 RTW – dreamy drama

All images from vogue.com.  ooooo some of the heavy hitters on the blog today to spruce up your sunday!  all going for high drama, theatrics and above all else, drop-dead gorgeous style!

sarah burton at alexander mcqueen has been in the headlines for designing kate middleton’s wedding dress, but pictured below is what she does best.  like from out of a dream, burton’s creations are whimsical, other-worldly and take risks – truly the essence of what alexander mcqueen is.  i felt as though the dress kate middleton wore could have been designed by anyone, though it was very beautiful and classic – but i didn’t really see anything mcqueen in it at all (but maybe that’s just my ignorant eye?) – if you’re going to wear a mcqueen as a wedding dress, why wouldn’t you pick the second runway look pictured below? or even the first with the golden trim bodice?! i sure would if i could wear a mcqueen!!marc jacobs at louis vuitton captured the prim and proper and effortless elaborate elegance that we’ve come to expect from the luxury brand.  The models walked off of a dreamy white carousel looking polished and sweet.  I’m loving the laser-cut tear-drop detaling, the head-to-toe styling (hairpiece, clothes, bag, shoes) and interesting shapes that he came up with this season – who knew a boxy white dress could look so cute and flattering?ooooooooo and chanel! karl lagerfeld never scrimps on the dramatic show – one year giant gold lion, the next a roll in the hay from a barn, giant icebergs, and this year – florence welch serenading an “under-the-sea” themed show complete with giant white corals, sting-rays and corals! ooooooo what i would have given to have been there!
video source: style on youtube.  i looooove the creamy, pastel colour palette, the structured fitted blazers over the frothy skirts, the iridescent aquatic-skinned dresses and the urchin jewelry and pearly mollusk shell inspired clutches!!
only a few more fashion week posts – i promise 🙂 i just can’t get enough though!
