Zac is Back


After a few seasons with a hit of the recession, Zac Posen has finally climbed back to the top with his Resort 2012 collection. When this collection enters stores, he is sure to be back on his feet  so we can see what Mr. Posen does best.

If there is one thing common in each and every one of Posen’s collections, it would be drama. With over sized gowns, over layered sleeves and over the top in everything else, Zac sure is a show stopper.

Coco Rocha

For Resort the color palette did not go crazy. Very soft colors followed throughout the collection. The gowns were more outragous then ever. Gowns you could barely walk in, but isn’t that what a Fabulous gown does anyway? Remember, Beauty is pain!

The Met Ball


Last Night the fashion crowd glitzed and glamoured themselves for one of the most important events in the fashion calender, The Met Ball. With a preview of the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition and a performance from Florence and the Machine, it seems like the night added up to its expectations. Here are some of the photos.
