Models of the Moment | Current Favorites

Being busy and not knowing what to post to my blog is a horrible combination. I got up quite late this morning and sat wondering what I should publish today and at one point I just didn’t think I should post anything. But… after browsing the web for a bit, I decided I would give to you a round-up of 5 of my favorite models, both male and female.  With number 1 standing on their own, the other four of each category are in no particular order and of course it was hard to put this together since they’re so much great models out there whom I respect and love.

A Moment to Think

Without a doubt, I know that I have a lot of great things to look forward to in life, but for this past week, in my distance I felt as though I didn’t. I mean, we all have those times when we feel as though everything around us is coming down, but I felt as though everything that I was doing, or not doing, was making me confused or stressed. It may sound weird, since I’m usually accustomed to fun, laughter and love; however, this feeling was very unlike me, and it made me rethink tons of things, including whether I should go to New York this summer, or not. Knowing that I’m moving into the second year of blogging this month, I believe that all the hard work I’ve been up to, both online and physically, will pay off. As for relationships, I still have lots of great people to meet just like I did in my first year. In my opinion, fashion is an industry which allows me to enjoy everything I do, whether it’s writing articles, shopping or sitting at 15 minute fashion shows around the world. So no matter what happens now, this phase is definitely on its way out!! Although I’ve considered giving up on ‘everything’ a couple times, I won’t!  Why?  Because I’ve got a great life in the making, with amazing friends and family, and more importantly God, who has been incredibly good to me.

I definitely won’t let all of this go to waste, but for now, I think I’ll just re-focus, and plan for year-end. With these words of truth and in some way inspiration, let’s all remember quitting is for losers. No matter how hard it seems, never give up!

And so I’ll make it through…

Armani Privé Haute Couture | Paris Fall 2011 Couture

In my opinion, Armani Privé brings the best haute couture collections each and every season, and this season, he doesn’t fail to stun me. With Japanese traditional prints and patterns everywhere, Giorgio’s interpretation of the modern-day Geisha came to life on the runway. With classic female silhouettes, strong tailoring in jackets, skirts and gowns, as well as a great use of color, Armani brought edgy designs full of shape and femininity to the plate. Models came out in exquisite pieces, with incredibly designed hair-fascinators in place, bold yet subtle makeup, and clutching chic bags and purses. Simply magnificent is all I can say, as Giorgio’s homage to Japan was paid. Check out my favorites from the collection, along with all the show looks below.

Alexis Mabille Haute Couture | Paris Fall 2011 Couture

After a questionable yet inspiring collection from Dior, Alexis Mabille, who I had been looking forward to, presented another one of his great haute couture collections. One could easily describe this as the best collection from the label, but with pure glamour, sophistication and the most amazing and gorgeous pieces one could find today, Alexis Mabille left us all in awe. I could not take my eyes from the large billowing dresses which were worn by beautiful models who carried minimal makeup, hair slicked back, along with some being accessorized with feathers.  The variety of luxurious dresses were made from materials like velvet and animal print, with some carrying fur and lace detailing and one with interesting spikes going down the sleeves. I was nothing but impressed by the stunning collection, so check out my favorite looks, as well as the entire collection below.

Christian Dior Haute Couture | Paris Fall 2011 Couture

After seeing this collection, which is being classed as confusing and horrible by most voices in the fashion world, I can surely say that Dior is in need of John Galliano badly!  I can’t say straight up that it was a bad collection, because some interesting elements such as the architectural inspiration definitely worked in a futuristic sense. However, where styling is concerned, the layers were piled in such a comical and displeasing manner. Nevertheless… let’s get down to my review.

Filled with pastel colors, whimsical and mosaic patterns, architectural inspiration, shapes and both edgy and girly designs, fashion house Christian Dior, currently headed by Susanna Venegas and Bill Gaytten, presented some confusing haute couture today in Paris. Seemingly inspired by clowns, (lol) the makeup was as always bold, and the clothes and shoes were filled with lots of color, patterns and shapes. Organza along shiny, shimmery fabrics all sauntered down the runway made into the over-exaggerated pieces. Check out my favorite (if any) pieces below, and then take a look at the entire collection.

Although the final piece worn by Karlie Kloss was my favorite gown of the show, the accessory which was worn around her neck solidified the clownish factor in the show.

São Paulo Fashion Week Spring 2012 | Cavalera

Large, youthful and festive were all the themes blowing out at me, as the third day of  São Paulo Fashion Week began with the Cavalera show.  With their usual fusion of fashion and music, pieces ranged from futuristic yet stylish superhero masks nodding to the Traditional Mexican Fighter, to lovely colored skirts and jackets. Mexican artist Frida Khalo motivates Cavalera in portraying “The day of the Dead.” Influenced by a vibrant color palette, this was a collection that was distinct and vibrant in Sao Paulo. No matter what walked the ‘runway’, they all screamed summer with a blast of culture and style. As fashion enthusiasts and media personnel lined the street, female and male models strutted pass them wearing the exaggerated collection. This is definitely one of the most creative shows I’ve ever seen, and being the first São Paulo Fashion Week that I’m covering, Cavalera as a brand will not be forgotten. Check out my few favorites, then the show photos below.

Kaleidoscope Color | Interview May 2011 Issue

For this Spring 2011 season, one cannot begin to get enough of the amazing color block trend which plays in my mind every time I see it.  Appearing for nearly every major magazine, it captures the full essence of summer and now for Interview Magazine’s May 2011 issue, models Merethe Hopland and Monica Sawicka set the trend ablaze once again. The power duo shot by Gregory Harris appear rocking the likes of Jil Sander and Versace, along with tons of other labels. Being edited for Interview by Sarah Ellison along with their electric hair which  was done by Brent Lawler, makes this campaign top the list thus far as we look forward to bigger and better color blocks.
