i was seriously skeptical of the new designers who took over such an iconic design house as Valentino, especially after watching this. But this collaboration is new, youthful, and respectful of the Valentino culture and romantic aesthetic at the same time. I like the use of leather and chiffon together- a cool play on hard and soft. there is also a cool transparency thing going on with lace. and the shoes are stunning.

^^^ check out the crazy artistry of the heels in the video

Karl Lagerfeld really knows how to put on a show!

at first i did not know how i felt about this collection, then i was mesmerized by it. its something about the contrast of both the colors and the patterns. and the head pieces i think are really pretty in an organic, disheveled way. enjoy

Dior’s Spring 2010 collection fascinated me… very inspired by film noir and transparency/lingerie. the hair and makeup is so stunning.

this collection is so beautiful, so romantic, so wearable. LOVE.

Spring 2010. BEAUTIFUL.

i remember loving the artistry of this eye-makeup at the Chanel Fall 2009 runway…they did these really cool white/blackĀ  appliques on the bottom lash line…. i have been experimenting in a more subtle way with a great white kajal eye pencil i got from Rimmel London (i like it a lot!), lining the inner corner of my eye and using a trick i learned from Kandee Johnson to make eyes look whiter, brighter, and bigger (I have notoriously bloodshot eyes that need extra precautions ha) by lining the bottom rim of your eye in the white pencil…it works!
