Shattered Pieces

My friend recently sent me a link where I saw this amazing dress.  It is from what I can tell made of smashed bits of china.  This for me is one of my favorite things, when fashion and art combine and create something amazing.

Same DNA totally different species

After watching Claire Danes glide down the red carpet this past week and learning she was sparkling in Armani Prive I remembered another celebrity who also made waves with the design house.  Lady Gaga wore the same designer to the 2010 Grammys.  Clearly the two women have immensely different styles and aesthetics.  This though is what I love about fashion.  These are two totally different women who can both not only wear but revel in this amazing designer.  The dresses are at first glance totally different but when you really look you can see the that clearly they are related...linked in a way to an ideal, one of glamour, luxury, refinement, and also blatant confidence.


Emmy Envy

Claire Danes in Armani Prive

Anna Paquin in Alexander McQueen
January Jones in Atelier Versace
I love awards show.  Plain and simple.  Women in gorgeous gowns, men in tuxes, and the inevitable fashion faux pas.  Personally I was wowed by the dresses shown this year at the Emmys.  Claire Danes tapped into my inner princess and showed up in a dazzling strapless Armani Prive gown, Anna Paquin showed off Alexander McQueen, and January Jones made waves in her blue Atelier Versace.  Some are being considered hits others questionable misses but I think we can all agree the Emmy's inspired some major dress envy.
