If I had gone to the Royal Wedding…

I would have worn this…

(With something to cover my shoulders, of course. I don’t think the Queen would think it to be proper otherwise.)

It’s from the Spring 2011 RTW collection by Proenza Schouler. I believe Kristen Stewart wore this dress for a photo-shoot for Vogue (?), but I could be mistaken. Nonetheless, I adore this dress!

Proenza Schouler Releases FIRST Ad Campaign

Proenza Schouler finally has released their first ad campaign, featuring models, Tati Cotliar, Ann and Kirby Kenny. (All three models walked the runway for Proenza this year.) The ads are simple with a white backdrop and the rainbow “Proenza Schouler” logo in the center. Tati, Ann and Kirby looks fabulous with messy hair and red lips.

A lot of people and critics are disappointed in the overall look of the advertisement. And sadly enough, I have to agree. The add is very lifeless. The poses are awkward, making the girls abnormally skinny. Also, the cropping is bizarre since some of their feet are cutoff. With what we have seen from Proenza Schouler, I expected a much higher quality of print.

New Trends: Hairy Fringe and Tie-Dye

With Paris’s Fashion Week now over, there are a lot of new trends that are emerging. The most prevalent of the them are hairy fringe and tie dye.

Hairy Fringe

The fringe seen on the runways is super expensive because of its high quality; Supposedly, it is human-hair-fine. This hair was seen at Dior (pictured right), Givenchy, and Jean-Paul Gaultier (pictured left). A few seasons ago on Project Runway, designer Chris March tried to make human hair happen, but people were disturbed by it.


Ports 1961, Calvin Klein, Blumarine, and Proenza Schouler showcased this look in their Spring/Summer 2009-2010 collections. Since then, this trend has taken off and can be seen in everything from bags, scarves, dresses, to even leggings!
