Bananarama – Venus

Well, I’ve been absent from my blog quite for a long time. But now here I am!
The first time I heard this song it was because of an epilator advertising on tv about ten years ago, I think.
I rediscovered it today! Crazy song. It remembers me summer. This is a cover of the Shocking Blue’s one, great as this.
In this period I’m so in love with Seventies fashion such as psychedelic prints and tie and dye t.shirts.
Maybe I’ll post some photos of vintage dresses of that period I found in my parents’ wardrobe.

Hope you like it!

Worst Dressed – Oscar 2013 and Vanity Fair Party

I was looking the last photos of the Academy Awards and thinking about the looks of the stars and I found that too often more space is given to those who wore a beautiful high fashion embroided gown with precious jewelry and luxury accessories, with a great make up and hair. But what about those poor women who completely went wrong in choosing their outfit?

Well, let’s talk about it! I’ve chosen five looks that in my opinion are entirely amiss.

Image

She’s Solange Knowles, the younger sister of Beyoncé, wearing Emilio Pucci. It seems a bad taste revival of eighties. At any moment she could start singing “I will survive!”. Yellow is a very difficult color to wear, only people who are really sure that it won’t cover their personality can wear it. I’m not sure if Solange is in this condition. Wrong gown. Wrong hair. Wrong accessories. No.

Image

Here is Olivia Munn wearing her Atelier Versace gown. The slit is too much high, it risks to be vulgar. The breast is really going to say “Hello everybody!” to the audience. And the back is too uncovered. Please stop.

Image

Well, Kristen Stewart is Kristen Stewart. No matter. But in this picture seems to be more a girl bad wrapped in a grandma’s quilt. And the tulle is overcoming from the back of the gown so approwimately. The gown is by Reem Acra, but the face is from a just woken up girl.

Image

Let’s focus the attention on the girl in the centre of the picture. Yes, she’s a gilr, not a huge carnivorous flower from South America. More precisely she’s Fan Bing Bing wearing a Marchesa gown. Image

The faboulos actress Helena Boham Carter wearing Vivienne Westwood. In this picture she remembers me of Bellatrix Lestrange in Harry Potter. Maybe the messy ensemble of fabric that seems more appropriate for a wicked reunion than for the Oscars.

Ermanno Scervino Fall Winter 2013 Womenswear Collection

Ermanno Scervino presented the fall winter 2013 collection this morning in Palazzo Serbelloni’s garden during Milan fashion week. The main colors he used were gray, mauve, white, black, blue and bordeaux. Scervino is worldwide known for the precious materials he used, such as pure silk, swarovski embroidery and fur. In his last collection he confirms the elements that have made him famous. When I saw the first look of the runway I immediately thought to Sarajevo in the war’s time. Maybe because the model was wearing a little fur as a foulard on her head in a very old fashioned way. But now it is already actual and fashionable! How designers can change things in such an easy way.I think that this theme remains also in some other collections of famous brands, but lets the fashion weeks end and I’ll let you know all. With fur he also made some stoles used as scarf. We could say that Scevino wanted to protect his women from cold of the hard journeys on a van, trying to escape from enemy soldiers and reach an ally country. Another trend he followed was the animal print such as the leopard, also proposed by Versace.

He also inserted some double-breasted coats and jackets made up in angora and flannel and he followed one of the main checked trends for the next winter, that is to say transparencies, using black and dark gray organza in geometric patterns.

The shoes reminded me of Galliano’s style, but the evening gown were exquisite, as always. Good collection, but, as concerning the other collection presented till now, I found nothing special.
