At the moment I find myself being immersed and lost in the sea of resort/cruise collections while listening to the likes of Patsy Cline, The Beatles, to Kelis and Goldfrapp. The eclectic mix of music is appropriate for the varieties of collections I have been studying. While fashion weeks tend to be Christmas to me, resort collections are essentially the pre-game to the whole extravaganza and gets me excited and fills my void until Spring or Fall fashion week comes around in the Fall and Spring respectively. Regardless how I fap to these presentations and jump like a schoolgirl, I believe I have created a list of my favorite so far into the season, even though after doing so I want to change a few. The list is my original list, but I feel I’d put Proenza higher with their amaze-ball bags and prints and I grow deeper in love with Stella McCartney with her rose, electric blue, and to-die-for florals. So here we go:
Diane, what can’t you love about this woman? Most know her from Inglourious Basterds, but many also know her through her keen fashions and superb sense of style that is unmatchable. She has such high tastes from Chanel – says Karl Lagerfeld is like a father – to Haute Couture and the most casual wear, yet is always so perfectly edited from top to bottom. Sometimes her style can raise questions, but there never is a question for taste. Recently she has really caught my attention, not to mention the whole fashion universe’s eye, with all of her exquisite numbers she wears on and off the runway.
We begin a few weeks ago in St. Tropez. The night before Chanel unveiled the resort collection, Diane sported a beautiful Chanel number paired with a hat to make it seem like the perfect casual ensemble. How relaxed yet cool does she look? During the actual runway show, Miss Kruger wowed in a Chanel Pre-Fall 2010 minidress adorned in black paillettes. The formal model is sexy as an obvious Chanel darling. I think her best accessory to date is her beau, Joshua Jackson, or Pacey if you will. He’s turned into such a GQ man as of late. Something is rubbing off and it’s something that I need to steal. Perfection is what it all is. Perfection.
Street style is something that is very interesting and different for everyone. Diane mastered it like it was effortless. What I’m sure is J.CREW, she pairs it with a hat again and Lanvin heels as she goes from shopping to wherever. The skirt is cute and the pop of purple makes the outfit exciting, while the heels bring a slight edge to the feminine and whimsy with the gold chain.
Now to the Cannes’s ensembles that got endless press. My first choice is the Jason Wu gown at Palme d’Or Award Closing Ceremony during Cannes Film Festival. The custom fuchsia gown is stunning and I don’t care to hear opinions stating otherwise. The black bodice is pretty with the lace and bead details, and this is definitely a gown to wear to make a statement. It comes across so strong, a bit quirky, and highly feminine. I love the gown on this woman! Moving on at Cannes, you can’t overlook the Giambattista Valli Fall 2010 dress. While the hair isn’t the best statement to make for any occasion, the dress is just absolutely beautiful and stunning. The bodice makes the whole dress with the beading and block flowers. Add the lower 60s pink half, and the look is so chic and wonderful. While most could not pull this off, instances like these excite me. Why just wear the same old boring dress? Have fun and play. This is what fashion is all about.
There is one more occasion that really caught my eye. This one other occasion is when she is wearing Lanvin Fall 2010. This is such a while dress, it’s ridiculous. Granted it’s not for everyone’s tastes, but it’s beautiful nonetheless. All of the detail and beading is fabulous and the fabric is interesting within itself. I love it. She pairs it with the same Lanvin shoes she wore shopping, yet this time they’re black. Stunning. Wow factor. Also, she pairs herself with the cutest little man. They look so good together. Makes you just jealous deep down inside.
