Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel


Words cannot describe the influence Diana Vreeland had towards the fashion world. Her vision, her drive, her enthusiasm, her passion created something new and interesting. Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel is a new documentary created by her granddaughter-in-law Lisa Immordino Vreeland. With interviews with designers Vreeland founded, like Manolo Blahnik and Oscar De La Renta and icons she created like Anjelica Huston and Lauren Hutton it is well worth a watch. Not only do you get an inside look into her glamorous lifestyle, but also a sense of what she was like as a person, colleague and friend. Her unique wit makes it a comical experience. She is dearly missed and we cannot thank her enough for what she did to the fashion world.

Champagne at the ready it’s Oscar time! Like every year, it’s not about what movie will win or what actor will have the once in a lifetime chance (for some) and win an award. For many of us all we want to know is who and what the biggest celebs in town are wearing.

Here are my style predictions for this years Oscars:

Christian Dior Haute Couture

Alexander McQueen

Ralph Lauren

New York Fashion Week Spring 2012 – Top 5 Shows


Oscar De La Renta – Mr. De La Renta really went for the wow factor this season. Opening his couture-like show with yellow, green and red ball gowns was nothing but trés allure.

Rodarte – With Vincent Van Gough’s painting’s splashed across the dresses in print, it created quite a fascinating colour palette. And there is nothing more glamorous than that.

Proenza Schouler – For Spring, the Proenza Schouler show had quite a handmade feel to it. Each look better than the next, revealing simple silhouettes and styles in a wide range of toned down colours and prints.

Marc Jacobs – Western girls mixed with sportswear? I think I like it! Master showman Marc Jacobs did not dissappoint with his fringed edges, plastic and oversized sequined collection. So will the biggest fashion rumour come true? Will Marc Jacobs take over the helm of Dior? I certainly hope so.

Jason Wu – At Jason Wu, it felt like the models were stepping out of a ballerina’s boudoir and into the real world. With a great use of colour from candy floss pink to lime green, Wu impressed the fashion folk with another wonderfully wearable collection.

Roll on London!

Harry Potter Premiere


Emma Watson and J.K Rwoling both turned up in Oscar De La Renta ball gowns at the Harry Potter Premiere in London. Perfect for the FINAL premiere. What a fabulous end, to a fabulous decade.

Oscar De La Renta Resort 2012


A new era has emerged for Oscar De La Renta. After having quite a number of Shows in his church venue on Park Avenue, he has found a new spot to complement his collections.

Picasso was the inspiration taken for this Resort collection. With sharp prints, bright coloured sequins and paper flamenco hats, it was evident De la Renta was looking for a new approach to fashion without ruining his classical touch.
