Armani Privé Page 1
It’s rare to see stars wear anything from last season, which is why Cate Blanchett looked so refreshing (and not to mention va-va-voom) in Armani Privé from the designer’s spring 2009 collection at the AACTA Awards in Sydney, Australia on Tuesday.
Following in the well-heeled footsteps of Marion Cotillard and Rachel Weisz, Jessica Biel is the third person to wear a Christian Dior couture dress from Raf Simons‘s debut show. The future Mrs. Timberlake donned a pink strapless creation (with pockets!) at the west coast premiere of Total Recall. Naturally, we have thoughts.
For a red carpet that we would characterize as fairly vanilla, there were still some looks from last night’s Emmy Awards that we found sartorially offensive.
Beyoncé, Beyoncé, Beyoncé. We want your pipes, we want your moves, we want your husband — and now we want your necklace.
Who wears short skirts? Not us, especially not after Paris Haute Couture Week‘s overwhelming display of below-the-knee silhouettes. From Jean Paul Gaultier to Armani Prive to Chanel, shrouded legs ran amuck. With the maxi dress’ epic rise to becoming this summer’s most coveted item, longer hemlines are here to stay, making the midi-skirt a trend that has inevitably followed suit.
We’re smack dab in the middle of Paris Haute Couture Week, a fashion phenomenon that happens twice a year and spawns a lot of jokes in which the word “haute” replaces the word “hot.” And even though it’s quite haute in France right now (see what we did there?) editors and stylists are looking at the clothes their very wealthy clients will be wearing once fall’s chill returns to the air.
Yesterday, Charlene Wittstock wed Prince Albert of Monaco in a civil ceremony while wearing a custom, Karl Lagerfeld-designed, robin’s egg blue pantsuit. Today, the bride brought out the big guns for a religious ceremony, walking down the aisle in an ivory Armani Privé gown embroidered with gold-tinted Swarovski crystals and white mother of pearl teardrops.
Another day, another fashion porn couture post. Today’s tasty treat comes to us courtesy of Giorgio Armani. If Galliano‘s Dior show was a throwback to a glamourous past, Armani’s Privé collection was a look toward a shiny future.
