Alexander McQueen

As someone who dresses a little more simply on a day-to-day basis, details are really important to me. For example, I love it when pants are lined with a bright color or when a collar is decorated with studs. The Spring 2012 runways were full of details but the gold adornments were the ones that caught and nestled in my eye. I mean, who doesn’t love a little gold bling in their everyday wear?

To put my art history major to good use, let me just say that Balmain’s collection was like Art Deco meets Byzantium with its angular lines decked out in gold. And then there’s Valentino with those perfect gold studs that seem to be the brand’s new defining factor. Jill Stuart may have been an Easter egg in fabric and colors but the nails were bedazzled in gold dots that I’m officially dubbing my next DIY. Dries Van Noten dabbled in the metallic hue with hints of copper on their shoes and Gucci had an Art Deco 1920s collection that I’d give my first child for. But if I had to choose a single gold embellishment for my Spring 2012 wardrobe, I’d have to go with Yves Saint Laurent’s gold-plated pepto bismol pink loafers that I hope to buy the second they hit stores.

Drunk At Vogue

I admittedly bought these Manolo Blahnik‘s after watching that episode of Sex and the City (for the umpteenth time) where Carrie gets drunk at Vogue and falls in love with these patent leather mary janes. Yes, I’m in a serious relationship with Sex and the City (see here for proof) but I’m also madly in love with these shoes and I don’t think it’s only because of the show.

I’ve worn them numerous amounts of times (see here and here for a mere glimpse), and when I received an invitation to have brunch at Vogue with QVC last Friday, there was no way I was going without my “drunk at vogue” shoes strapped to my feet. While I didn’t actually get drunk at Vogue a la Carrie Bradshaw, I did enjoy a delicious pain au chocolat and some coffee before venturing out into the cold with Emily for a walk around Bryant Park.

**I realize I look absolutely exhausted in these photos…hoping this past weekend of rest has changed that.

Pose & Shoot

August 9, 2010

Let’s be honest, half the fun of flipping through fashion magazines is for that glossy 8-10 page fashion spread featuring an A-list model wearing deliciously expensive designer clothing photographed by a high-profile photographer. From the pages of Vogue and Elle to Jalouse and i-D, there will without a doubt always be a fantastic fashion forward spread gracing its many pages.

Although I am constantly discovering new and different photographers,  there’s nothing like the famous, well-known fashion photographers that never fail to produce phenomenal pictures. Like a good ol’ all American cheeseburger, I can always count on photographers like Patrick Demarchelier, Annie Leibovitz, Steven Meisel, and Juergen Teller to satiate my fashion photography appetite. Below are some of my favorite photographs by each of them, although I must admit I had one hell of a time narrowing them down.
