DREAMING ON WITH MARC JACOBS

Debating on whether MJ’s show was spiritual or haunting would be a trial of sorts. With jet setting audience sitting under puffy clouds and Jessica Lange whispering “Happy days are here again” hypnotically, the atmosphere was reminiscent of the forthcoming spring while being strangely soothing.

Models sporting bleached eyebrows and pale makeup entered the runway dressed in tunic and pants shaded in variations of oatmeal colors. A line dresses with deep necklines adorned in sequins and gradient ruffles of which particularly black sequined one caught our eye, boxy jackets paired with trousers, following which Marc started piling on layers and furs over long skirts and color blocked leggings. How could we forget the sheer top worn by, hold your breath – Kendall Jenner, definitely made heads turn all the way round, ouch that must hurt.

With the NYFW drawing to a close, despite being fancy stuck by couple of over the knee boots by Marc we decide to let them be, for wearing them only to step onto a pile of slushy mush on Manhattan streets would be sacrilegious.


SCORE FOR BECKHAM

With her entire family turned out to support her as she showcased her fall 2014 collection, Victoria Beckham pulled off a rather splendid show at Cafe Rouge on Sunday in Big Apple.

The season collection has a beautiful blend of masculine and feminine elements to them while retaining the VB look. On a cashmere coat instead of button closure, a discrete gold chain added a femme touch, ruffles edging along a black tunic, gold detailing on a cowl knit top, graphic prints and flat pointy brogues all have the 360 degree spin resulting in a svelte outcome.

From drool worthy red carpet gowns to the classic grunge VB has upped the ante while cementing her status as a designer with a flagship store set to open this year in London’s Dover street.


OSCAR GOWNS FROM MARCHESA

The Oscars are barely two weeks from now and Marchesa provided the ‘oh my god’ jaw dropping gowns to perfection. The pop of color on the ornate embroidered gowns gave quite a nice jolt to the eyes, it was like seeing the drawings of young lasses wandering on Scottish highlands come to life.

Off course there was no tartans of plaids but rather the mood, drama, bonfires and weather of the Scottish moors was brought alive through the ethereal frocks. Probably to counter the drama, models sported the cornrows style. Bright burst of saffron and teal gave way to softer dreamier shades. We saw a confection of draped lace, smooth silks in jewel tones and stunning embroidery on gowns. Cocktail dresses studded with crystals, beads and made from wool seemed to float on models giving them an ethereal look while flashing sexy glimpses of the leg.

The show stopping piece de resistance gown at Marchesa was a saffron gold silk ball gown ruched up at the waist with the neckline set off shoulder reminiscent of the old world charm and grace.

Perhaps best actress nominee Amy Adams would choose the label for her Oscar moment.
