All in the Details

Some of my favorites from Marchesa's Fall '10 collection:

I'm fascinated with this sort of texturing, especially when it is in tight rounds (not in this example, obviously). I think this is what Marchesa does best. I really, really want to get my hands on an example to see how they form the ruffles! 

I think I love this one the best. I just know it's going to end up on Kristen Stewert, or some teen, but my secret desire is that it will somehow make its way to Anne Hathaway. The top would look amazing on her shoulders! Although it is a little shorter than she usually goes but it would be nice to see her in something a little more playful (maybe for some Alice in Wonderland promotion?) 
This is one is just fun! Wouldn't it look a-freaking-dorable on Dakota Fanning? It's a little similar to a black unicorn dress from last year, but the volume and texture of the skirt saves it from being too repetitive. 

Anne Hathaway will actually end up wearing this (she will fill it out better than that poor model,too!) . I'm sure somewhere in the world right now Brad from  Rachel Zoe's office is convulsively sucking down some Starbucks and crying to someone at the label about it. The lace detailing is just amazing. I especially like that the pattern isn't symmetrical.  The only thing I'm not sure about is the color. I just can't make it out. It would be nice in black, but if it is ink blue I think I would like it twice as much. What do you think?

One More Thing

I feel like this post might push my J.Lo level over the edge on this paltry little blog, but I feel like lately she is messing with me.  So, I've decided to steal a little idea from Gawker's Brian Moylan and give Jenny power rankings so she can see where she is going horribly wrong.


Jennifer Lopez:
J.Lo Bonus: You are Jennifer Lopez: + 50
The Fams : You are married: +2. To that guy: -1. You have twins: + 2! They don't look like divas: -1.
Projects: Released a new perfume in October: +2. Meh -1. New single about shoes in time for SITC2: +3. You ruined it by dressing like an awkward boxer and dancing in a giant shoe: -5. Executive Producer for new T.V. show based on Maid in Manhattan. Has Lifetime potential: +2. Three movies coming up: +0. They will keep Netflix busy: +3.  Wait, I thought you were trying to be a singer again: -7. You just really like money: +5.
Power Plays: Hung out with Rihanna a few days ago: +2. You wore mom jeans: -3. Chosen to introduce to the world Green Day's new musical American Idiot: +2. When you got to the words " American Idiot" on the teleprompter you clearly scoffed like you've never heard of that album: -5. Oh, God. You haven't: -15. Have some guest spots coming up on crazy popular shows: + 3. J.Lo as a cafeteria lady? I'd rather see a diva diva like Babs or Bette: -2.
Fashion: New Years Eve jumpsuit -1. Grammy dress: - 3. You wore that fleshsuit again: -10! Really:  -10.
Diva Points = 12.
Worse off than if you just sat on your couch this year.

What Lopez  should have done was get herself a cirque du show and head over to Vegas like Celine. She is returning to Caesars for another three years and $100 million. Nice power play, Mrs. Angelil.

Well, I Hope You're Happy.

Look what you did.
After seasons of playing around with 80s trends it finally came back.          90s fashion.

It started out with one or two things, but it was already out of hand.

First I hear about editors at Marie Clare fighting over Doc Martin print boots, then Gap threw chanting, dancing flannel people in our faces. Then it was everywhere. Magazines, my Anthropologie catalog, Topshop ( where I pulled most of these images, btw) . . . haphazard layers, muted colors ( hello return of nude pink!), florals, pleated pants, chunky heels & light denim :


When will it end? Hmm?

Don't you people remember the crochet at all? The belly shirts? The velvet?




Is this what you want? Is it?
Sure, it may seem like good times at first but let me remind you how easily sipping coffee and dancing in fountains with your friends can turn to THIS :

 Use sparingly. You have been warned.

No.


Jennifer Lopez. You have been in this business too long to let some stylist bully you into something that would have landed in your reject pile in 2001. I understand you are trying to remind us of the diva you once were, but you are trying too hard. Now scrub your face, give Beyonce her weave back and rejoin us in 2010 where dresses come in colors.  

Oh . . .  and I'm back.
