Bella Donna

So my first actual, legitimate fashion show where I didn’t have to help models into their shoes or seat the fabulous attendees was DKNY.  I would count myself pretty lucky.  I was seated in the third row and had a perfectly lovely view of both the Vogue, Elle, and Harper’s Bazaar editors.  And, yes, Leigh Lezark, Estelle, and the Veronica’s.

My heart skipped a beat when I saw the all-American model turned editor, Tonne Goodman, now Fashion Director of Vogue standing on line with me to get into the show.  She, along with Grace, Anna, and Andre are why I am so obsessed with this industry.  Ms. Goodman was seated two seats in front of me with Virginia Smith, Market Director at Vogue.

The show itself was very girly and flirty with a slight French attitude in the air.  I need to own all of the ruffle trimmed bathing suits, blazers, and blouses.  And I really loved the jumpsuits, both camel and navy, they were very classy and looked unbelievably comfortable.

These were my favorite looks from the collection:

The Marriage of Fashion and Politics

President Obama was in town last night (NYC that is) for a little fundraising dinner hosted by Anna Wintour.  I love this.  I really do.  The whole fashion industry really got behind Obama, designing shirts, reusable tote bags, putting Michelle on the cover of Vogue and creating more eco-friendly clothing.

The dinner cost $30,400 per person and was attended by some of America’s finest, most prominent designers, such as Calvin Klein, Vera Wang, and Donna Karan.

It has also been announced that after much consideration, Chelsea Clinton has decided on a gown designed by Vera Wang to wear during her much anticipated wedding to Marc Mezvinsky.

I actually think fashion and politics have more in common than they would like to admit.  Both have a foundation in money, relationships, who you know and they are both deeply seeded in change.  Fashions change just as much as who is in power.

Fashion Puppet Pals

They are absolutely everywhere. All over the internet, featured on the Vogue UK blog and Refinery 29.  On the manicured hands of Tim Gunn and potentially pinned to the jackets of everyone at Fashion Week.

These are, of course, the fashion finger puppets, of which I hope to be a collector.  They are adorable and quirky and actually match the likeness quite well.

Some of these puppets are sold individually, and others in sets like the ones created for the various Fashion Weeks.  There is a New York group, London, Milan, and Paris group.  Though they are a bit expensive, $120 for a set, they might be worth it when you have an insanely fashion knowledgeable child one day.
