I prefer not to kill things for fashion, but I could not get enough of these textured coats at Emilio Pucci. Do kinda hate the boots though. What else do you wear with leather short-shorts if not brown suede thigh-high boots? Obviously, right?
Karl loosely referenced Rajasthan in a surprisingly rich and full Pre-Fall Collection for Chanel. Filled with wearable suits and new proportions for day, lux fabrics, and interesting beading, this show wasn’t filled with leftovers. It did what a Pre-Fall Collection should do: hint at a fresh direction.Floaty and ephemeral at moments, dark, mysterious, and layered at others…
…with occasional moments of red and pink.Congratulations Mr. Lagerfeld on one of the best collections of the season.

The face for this spring starts with a translucent sheer foundation finished with little to no powder. Berry-stained lips provide interest as shown at Carolina Herrera. As beauty strategies go, emphasizing one feature isn’t a revelation, but most get it wrong. Perfect execution requires an extremely subtle hand. Brows play an essential part in framing an otherwise mostly unadorned face. The most forward-thinking interpretation serves a super strong, darker sculpted brow with impeccable skin and modest color. The finish on lips and cheeks reciprocate each other – think color wash – a single shade layered for various levels of intensity. Eye smokers, you don’t have to give up the liner, but please exercise some restraint. See Wang – Vera or Alexander – for different ways to smoke it out.
Unfortunately, the Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear presentations haven’t been that thrilling so far. Prabal Gurung rose to the top with a particularly clever collection. Pink pants popped up across several runways, and each time it was a delicious treat. A variety of silhouettes provide options for those who favor wide or skinny. Experiment with long layered draping to keep skinny fresh.
