Versace joins once again the few select fashion houses able to bring their runway show LIVE to a world wide audience. Versace made a stream of their show available to more than 200,000 fans on Facebook. Hopefully a lot of designers took notes, since Donatella gave quite a lesson with her Spring/Summer 2011 Womenswear collection, in a stylish and playful game of proportions under Opposites Attract motto. It all went from short vs. long, high vs. low, plain vs. patterned, dull vs. bright, and fabric vs. flesh, platforms were vanished for stiletto heels 6 inches high and Versace Greek fret motif got an original pattern treatment.
Fashion week has come to an end in LA this past week. With final shows from Anthony Franco, Skingraft, Ashton Michael, Ximena Valero and many more, LA made its mark. Going through the many LA designers and shows, I came across White Trash Beautiful. The collection consisted of light flowing sheer fabrics, with soothing pastels and floral prints. Youthful and chick and perfect for the LA fashion week.
One look stood out in particular that spoke to me. A romantic opaque eggplant colored, flowing long sleeved top. Flowing sheer fabric that nicely hugs the body, long Juliette flowing sleeves, paired off with a pair of leather pants. Although the top says soothing and girly, the leather pants give it that LA edge that LA is known for. Rocker meets Romantic. Awesome look and great piece for White Trash Beautiful. Viva La Fashion Week.
October 7th Fashion week Paris featured Jean Paul Gaultier’s final line with Hermes. After 7 years as artistic designer for French line Hermes, Gaultier has stepped down to focus on his line. Christophe Lama ire who served as artist director at Lacoste since 2001 will be replacing Gaultier at Hermes. Although Hermes is sad to see Gaultiers leave the relationship between the two is not completely over.
Gaultier’s made heads turn with his final line with Hermes. Gaultier featured a chic equestrian line in buttery suede’s and calfskin. Horseback riding in style! His lines and silhouettes were beautiful and genius. Like the rest of the fashion world, I am sad to see Gaultier leave Hermes, but I am excited to see what Gaultier comes out with his own line. Gaultier we’re ready for you!!!
On September 29, 2010 Robert Cavalli brought to Milan his new 2011 spring summer collection. Different from all the other shows in Milan Roberto Cavalli showcased a Chick Hippy look lined with fringe. He also showcased a new line of handbags with long shoulder stapes and even longer hemlines. The new line is defiantly a move from his tight fitting animal print lines, he moved his new line into dresses, skirts, muted tones and sheer fabrics. This was defiantly a very high talked about show.
Roberto Cavalli defiantly out did himself this time around, and I must admit that I love the new line. A fresh new feel for the long time loved 67′ Hippie look. The use of fabric and color in each look had me excited to see what was coming next down the runway. My favorite look of the show was the crème colored pants lined with fringe, and see a throw long sleeve crème top also lined with fringe down the front. All in all this is my favorite show in Milan Fashion Week. I will defiantly be looking forward to recreating this look.
For years I have struggled to find bikini bottoms that fit me right. They always seem to fit me loosely in the butt area and being a skinny girl, that doesn’t seem to look right. Once I started Go-go dancing, I discovered the amazing scrunchy butt bottoms. Scrunched in the middle of the bottom to fit everyone behinds nicely and make your butt look amazing. Life was even better when I found a shop that provided the cutest bikinis with scrunchy butts. I know, spit it out already. What’s the name of this amazing store? Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce you to Chynna Dolls located in Buena Park, CA right around the corner from Knott’s Berry Farm. Chynna Dolls is a leading provider of exotic swimwear, dancewear and accessories. They got it all; including Go-go boots, exotic shoes, dresses, Halloween costumes, and all other kinds of goodies.

Come check out me and my girls in our one of a kind Chynna Doll costumes and enjoy some amazing house beats. Please be sure to check out Chynna dolls at www.chynnadolls.com for their latest line. Scrunchy butts are the new wave people, let’s all climb aboard!!
Parsons dropout Alexander Wang launched his first full women’s collection in 2007. The label embodies casually cool downtown style, drawing inspiration from the eighties, French chic, and rock grunge—always finished with a slouchy rolled-out-of-bed edge. Wang launched a diffusion line of pre-weathered cotton tees, tanks, and T-shirt dresses in spring 2009, T by Alexander Wang, as well as a footwear collection of towering platform sandals. He won the CFDA/VogueFashion Fund in 2008, an honor accompanied by a $20,000 award to expand one’s business. Megan Fox, Mary-Kate Olsen, Nicole Richie and Gwyneth Paltrow are just a few of Alexander Wangs distinguished clients.
The only label to have designed wedding dresses for both Jackie O. and J. Lo, Valentino is synonymous with opulence, extravagance, and drama. In business since 1960, Valentino Garavani made his mark early with intricately detailed, luxurious gowns and tastefully body-conscious silhouettes—even perfecting his own shade of Valentino Red. The year 1968 introduced the groundbreaking White collection as well as the now-iconic V label. Thanks in part to the entrepreneurial skill of Giancarlo Giammetti, Valentino’s longtime business partner and ex-boyfriend, the brand is still manna among European royalty, American socialites, and celebrities craving a touch of class. Though his new creations get a great deal of attention—and requests, especially around red-carpet time—his vintage dresses continue commanding attention (remember the black gown with white piping Julia Roberts wore to accept her Oscar in 2001? So do we). To the horror of loyal fans across the globe, Valentino announced his retirement in 2007. Since he hadn’t groomed an heir, the label is still trying to find its footing: Former Gucci designer Alessandra Facchinetti took over as head designer until being unceremoniously fired after her spring 2009 collection. Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, who had previously designed accessories for the label, were then named creative directors.
