Behind the Scenes

wut is it? Backstage snapshots I came across from V
Magazine of great collections from the Spring 2011 shows.

Lanvin 

Rick Owens

More of a Fall fan for Rick Owens... his leather jackets
are insane
Balmain

They have killed it season after season lately. This
collection comes close to Euro-Trash territory, but the
details and amazing fit keep it in couture status... this is
why I have to love them, for daring to go there and pulling
it off. 
Alexander McQueen... the first collection without the man
behind the name, may he rest in peace.

Sarah Burton was appointed the new Artistic Director, and
a job well done. She embodied the McQueen aesthetic, and
gave it a fresh spin, much-needed after the dark fall designs
(the last collection the late McQueen designed.) Sarah was
the best for the job, she has worked as the late McQueen's
assistant since 1996.

Life Footage: Black Tie Evening

wut was it? My dad was honored as man of the year for the 
charity organization which raises money for cancer and Aids 
research, The City of Hope. I was blown  away by how much 
my money my Dad was able to raise for them this year. It hit 
me how much this man does while I am away at in nyc doing 
the college grind. I hope my success follows in his 
footsteps, so I can make a difference like this one day.  
Here are snapshots from my disposable of the Black Tie Gala 
at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills. 

The Dress was a 1930's vintage dress from What Goes Around 
Comes Around, NYC.... If I can't design it, I have to go 
vintage.

Steph was my date... her dress is from H&M, they have awesome 
affordable party dresses out right now, if you need a New 
Years Dress, go there, there are tons

The well deserved Honoree
