Our Designer Spotlight continues. This time we're spotlighting the iconic Ralph Lauren. We know him for his jeans, but of course Ralph Lauren does much more than that. Have you seen his September Collection? It's filled with lots of items with handmade and crochet detail which we love. The looks range from tribal prints to delicately elegant silk gowns. Dress prices range from $1490 to $4990 so you've got to have some deep pockets. But if you're like us and those prices just don't fall in your budget, simply look, admire, hope , wish, and use it as inspiration for your next project.
Do you have your Halloween costume yet? We found a free pattern from Fleece Fun and we're using it to work on a Game Of Thrones costume. We're creating a costume similar to the Jaqen H'ghar character. You can check out our Instagram for pics of our Work In Progress. The pattern calls for fleece fabric which can be purchased at any fabric store like Jo Ann's. But we'll let you in on a little tip for those on a tight budget. We simply purchased a fleece blanket for about $1.99 at the 99 Cent Store. After assembling the pattern, turns out we'll need to get another blanket to create it. Speaking of tips, do you have any tips and tricks you'd like to share? If so, share it with us in the comments. We love to hear from you.
But in the meantime, we thought we'd help out and leave you with a list of free Halloween Costume Ideas you could try. That is if you don't have one in mind yet. So with no further ado, here is our list.
Did you happen to catch Michelle Obama's dress that she wore to the Final State Dinner? We did and it was fabulous! We did some research and found out it was none other than the iconic Versace. Seems you can't go wrong on any red carpet wearing a Versace gown. Disagree? Shout out an example in the comments. We'll take you up on that argument. It could make for some interesting commentary.
Photo used has no association with Gucci or Alessandro Michele
When asked the question "what are you wearing?" to many millennials at any red carpet event, Gucci is likely to be a response. Why you ask? Because the legendary design house is courting these youngsters in an effort to remain relevant. This according to a recent Hollywood Reporter style article. Under the creative direction of Alessandro Michele, Gucci seems to be doing just that. In an interview posted on the Gucci website, he says "I love working with the ‘pop symbols’ of the company: the GG logo, the green-red-green Web stripe, the Horsebit. These are precious things—relics—and I want to give them a very contemporary attitude."
In ourlook back at Emmys 2016 Best Dressed, it came to our attention that we didn't mention any of the awards for costume design. In fact, the HBO show Game of Thrones won an Emmy for Outstanding Costumes For A Period/Fantasy Series, Limited Series Or Movie. Costume Designers Michelle Clapton, Chloe Aubry, and Sheena Wichary are part of the group of designers that led the show to victory.
Did you happen to pick up the September 30th 2016 issue of the Hollywood Reporter? We got a real treat after going to the mailbox and finding the issue with Kerry Washington and Christian Louboutin posed on the cover. Perfect inspiration to do another Red Carpet Designers Spotlight. The issue is full of style goodies, including a spread of fabulous full length photos of Red Carpet dresses worn at the recent Emmy Awards. Style Editors Carol McColgin, Booth Moore, and Jane Carlson really outdid themselves with their style articles, which included a Top 25 Red Carpet Designers list.
Designer crochet? Yes please. Who knew there was such a thing? We sure didn't. That is until we stumbled upon Lupita Nyongo's Instagram post. The acclaimed actress posted a photo of herself in a brightly colored rainbow crochet dress with the caption "Considering Balmain." She wore the dress to a premiere of the movie Queen Of Katwe. Upon further investigation, turns out the dress was seen on the runway of the Balmain Resort 2017 Fashion Show/Collection.
