Gown-gous.

February 8, 2009

I am sooo infascinated with the gowns that flowed down the runway for spring 2009. I know inauguration season is past but there are always a million and a half reasons to wear a gown.

Long gowns for the spring, are flowy, flashy, and flowery.

blumarine blumarine – I heart the “belt”

diane-von-furstenberg Diane Von Furstenberg. The color palette is to DIE for here. It’s so funky-fresh.

giorgio-armani Giorgio Armani- **jumps up and down** I want it! I need it! I crave it!

narciso-rodriguez Narcisco Rodriguez- The bodice is the best one I’ve seen all season. I like the complicated top and the simple bottom. Gives people something to stare at.

robertocavalli Roberto Cavalli- the bottom speaks for itself. This is a work of art.

In undergrad a lot of the sororities and fraternies had balls and I was never one to wear the long flowy gowns but I loved short beauiful dresses and I like to think of how it distinguishes one from the norm!

louis-vuitton Louis Vuitton- Not exactly ball worthy but dammit if it doesn’ tmake a statement! This is one of those dresses where you find a place to go to.

verawang Vera Wang- My favorite! It’s both classic and innovative. Sexy and Demure. Fabulous and Fantastic.

Until next time.

Magazine P(l)aythings…

So I’m going to doublepost today to make up for my many months of abscence…

It’s Ad Season!

One of the best parts of buying Vogue is not the editorials but rather the pages upon pages upon pages of beautiful ads teasing this little Muse with purses, sweaters, shoes, dress, jewelry… Seasonal ads are like the Picassos of the advertising world and the Mona Lisa’s of magazine pages. Without further adieu- Muses favorites…

Gucci- Winter ’09

In addition to the hippie style that I am SO feeling for the spring (peasant dresses and knee high gladiators anyone?), I like the creepy doll like poses and most importantly I like the fur. She looks like a Russian Heiress and they are just so darn glamorous.

Gucci- Spring ’09

At this very moment I am refusing to buy food in hopes that I can afford the purple dress and the killer stilettos. Well I’ll buy dog food for Jaasper but the spending stops there…

Alberta Ferretti got me with the cool girls in the bar ad… Everybody loves a fly girl with a drink in her hand. Especially if she she bought it herself.

STOP THE PRESSES. Not only do I love the “peepshow” tone of this photo but that dress needs to be plastered onto my body with the Gucci heels (see above) and onto some fabulous party. Like Yesterday.

I’m not really a Missoni girl but… School Pictures! Genius!

Prada has done it again. Not only do I want nearly everything in these ads but they make me want to study ad-chitecture because these are fabulous. And then more fabulous.

Finally Roberto Cavalli has managed to combine my love for the 1950’s as well as my favorite actress Marilyn Monroe. Many Cheers Cavalli. You win my best of Spring ’09.
