The Blonds Spring/Summer 2015 Fashion Show at NYFW

When fashion week rolls around each year, there is only one show I am GAGGING to see and that is The Blonds. I have always been inspired by the colours, the glitter and the imagination that emulates from The Blonds collections each year. There is something magical about the way Phillipe Blond & David Blond work together. It’s as if the goddesses themselves formed this unholy union of fierceness! Each year the due outdo themselves and their Spring/Summer 2015 show for New York Fashion week was some of their most innovative & impressive work yet.

One of the most exciting aspects of The Blonds S/S 2015 show was the beautifully long, braided hair. The hair inspiration was what i’d like to refer to as Ghetto Rapunzel! A mixture of Chola and Barbie elements to create a high fashion hair style, that only The Blonds could pull off with ease.

The Blonds clothing is always dream like and their shows make you feel like you are watching moving art work. In this S/S collection, the tartan fabric, sacred hearts and praying hands that featured on some of the clothing flowed beautifully with the jeweled embellishments, which are a trademark for The Blonds. The contrast between purity and hoochie is comical in that typical Blonds fashion, which gives a middle finger to the norm and makes fashion fun again.

The accessories featured in the show where fantastically gaudy, statement pieces that completed the looks perfectly. Chunky door knocker earrings and bold sparkling necklaces worn by the models glinted against the couture as they stomped down that runway.

The guests who attended The Blonds S/S 2015 fashion show were FABULOUS!

The Blonds sure know how to put on a fashion extravaganza! They never fail to impress me and make me yearn to own some of their amazing designs. Their clothing takes me to a place of mystery and possibilities. The Blonds are fashion pioneers who aren’t afraid to take risks, they laugh in the face of social norms and create beautiful illusions that excite and ignite imaginations across the world to be adventurous, fearless and fierce.

Kendall Jenner & Gigi Hadid go bare faced for Marc Jacobs at NYFW!

Yesterday at the Marc Jacobs fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2015 at Park Avenue, Kendall Jenner & Gigi Hadid posed barefaced backstage for this picture. I think they look GORGEOUS! I really love the juxtaposition that Marc Jacobs created at NYFW by keeping his models faces clean and fresh, to show off their youthful skin. Head make up artist Francois Nars (founder and creative director of NARS Cosmetics) must have had the easiest job at fashion week!

Francois stated “The look for the show features no makeup, we only applied moisturizer.”gigi-hadid-and-kendall-jenner-nyfw-backstage-getty

I love the fact that Marc Jacobs took the risk by using no make up on his models for the show. I think it makes a bold statement that you don’t need make up to look and feel beautiful.

But hey, lets face it. If anyone can look flawfree without make on, it’s Kendall & Gigi!

OOTD: Fashion Al Fresco!

 

fafThe weather is beginning to cool down and the evenings are getting shorter. Summer is almost over. But that doesn’t mean that I am feeling glum! I am feeling very inspired by French cinema today, romance and art. My outfit consists of a simple black leotard from Lipsy, paired with a beautiful laced skirt and black flats from Dunnes Stores. To accessorize, I wore my trusty bowler hat from H&M and a Harry Potter inspired bracelet from Etsy.
