Temperley London | Spring 2011

Designer Alice Temperley imagined an “era of courtly love” when designing her Spring 2011 collection, specifically the courting of King Arthur and his wife Guinevere. However, Temperely’s Guinevere is no meek maiden. Many of her looks were worn with metal “armor,” giving a hard edge to the romantic looks. Printed jumpsuits and ruffled dresses were held […]

Kanye West | Twitter’s Lipstick Guru

I literally “lol” when I read this tweet on my timeline. Who wouldn’t take makeup advice from someone who refers to makeup artists as lipdressers?!

Cynthia Steffe | Spring 2011

Boy, am I glad I made it! The Central St. Martin’s graduate was behind the beautiful gold gown that Miley Cyrus wore […]

Vassilios Kostesos | Spring 2011

A modern take on ancient Greece came marching down the runway at the Vassilios Kostetsos Spring 2011 show.  Metallics, structure and buoyancy, things that are very Greek, were the themes of the show.  Although the two latter descriptions may contradict the other, Kostetsos was able to marry the two to present a cohesive collection. The […]
