As you may have guessed fashion is a great passion of mine and I love pouring over the latest fashion offerings, by the Top International Designers.
I have always said that one day when I grow up(hopefully sometime soon) I will own a Elie Saab creation!
These are My Top fashion Designers:
He is definitely my favourite designer, I love his dreamy almost fairytale style of designing. Elie Saab’s signature has to be his exquisite beadwork and his use of lace and tulle. He named his Spring 2013 collection “An Ode to Delicateness”, with illusion necklines and sheer sleeves, his creations seem to almost float down the runway.
Marchesa’s 2013 RTW(Ready To Wear) collection has a definite exotic Indian flavour with hints of Bollywood - elaborate threadwork, sari draping and fringe are front and centre. The collection features rich tones such as Chartreuse, peacock, bordeaux, or eggplant tones tipped with gold. The structured sari gown below is my favourite – I love the rich tones and stunningly sexy lines of the dress.
The name Oscar de la Renta has always been synonymous with high fashion and his 2013 RTW collection delivers on all fashion fronts. The collection has something for everyone, from day suits in doily lace and the unusual use of fuchsia Astrakhan, to party dresses in feather-embroidered tulle. Super feminine and so pretty!
Zac Posen’s 2013 RTW Collection has a definite Vintage feel to it with 1940 Skirt-suits and old school floral day dresses but my favourite part of the collection are the exquisite gowns! I particularly love his use of satin and tulle to create a dramatic contrasting silhouette.

Fashion Friday is all about glitz, glamour and the red carpet! Featuring my favourite Red Carpet look from this years SAG Awards and the gorgeous Naomi Watts! Looking absolutely radiant in a ornately beaded Marchesa gown, diamond Fabergé earrings and glittery box clutch, Naomi typifies old-world Hollywood glamour. She adds just a few punches of colour to her ice-white look, with a bright ruby lip, an emerald-green mani and topped off with a chunky emerald ring, also by Fabergé. Not to forget her beautifully styled golden locks! STUNNING!
Have a fabulous Fashion Friday!

The 2013 Red Carpet did not disappoint with plunging necklines, low-backs and leg revealing side slits being the order of the day! One of favourites was Jessica Alba(yet again) in a gorgeous soft coral Oscar de la Renta gown, as I have said before she looks great in most anything!
Both Halle Berry and Jennifer Lopez, who are well known for their ability to shock with body-baring fashion looked amazing! Many of the dresses were more understated and elegant. Although colour is still very popular, there was a big trend of white or off-white gowns, with lots of shimmer and texture.
There were many more amazing gowns but these are my favourites!

Today’s Fashion Friday is reminiscent of the 50′s style Rock ñ Roll fashion, which brings back memories of the movie Grease, with flirty swing skirts, figure sculpting fitted bodices and a classic bob to complete the look.
These images were taken backstage at a Dior Show early last year, I simply love the drama that the photographer has managed to capture!
My look of the week this week features an outfit from the Zac Posen Resort 2013 Collection. A collection featuring such grace and elegance, beautiful fabrics and understated glamour. I especially love the sleek and rather sexy skirt-suits that have become a big trend this season and a popular look in his Resort collection. The beautiful detail on the jacket neckline and sleeves bring this figure-hugging look to a new level. The sassy hour-glass styled skirt brings a bit of femininity and fun to the outfit. The magnificent beaded necklace completes the look amazingly and adds that necessary touch of drama!
