Remember the dramatic fall/winter 2011 finale of the Burberry Prorsum menswear fashion show? Here’s the video I took back in January.
Those transparent Burberry Prorsum rain coats are now available at Luisa Via Roma. At approximately US$1,500 a pop, the price tag is not for the faint of heart.
Well played Christopher, well played.

Yesterday was the Christian Dior fall/winter 2011 haute couture show in Paris. How do you feel about Bill Gaytten’s collection for Dior?
I personally thought it lacked the usual finesse and refinement of John Galliano’s previous collections for the House of Dior. There were too many ideas, too many concepts, but new beginnings for Dior nonetheless.
Bill, who worked for John for many, many years, was recently named as Creative Director of the John Galliano brand.
I know spring showers are coming to an end to pave way for summer sun but it’s never too early to start planning looks for fall. I love Jens’ collection of hand-made hats for Uncommon Creatures, a cool label based in Denmark. They are inspired by villages such as Viseu de Sus, situated in the Maramures mountains in Romania. I’m all for headgear and these chic creatures will surely punctuate any autumn outfit.

I am obsessed with this video featuring 3.1 Phillip Lim’s fall/winter 2011 menswear collection for Nowness.
I was watching it the other day and I couldn’t get it off my head. The music, the sheer simplicity and chicness of it all, and of course, the terrific location where it was shot.
Many of you have emailed me for more pictures of the sequined shoes I wore the other day. Again, they’re from Dolce & Gabbana’s fall/winter 2011 collection.
Shiny, shimmering, splendid!
This velvet tuxedo, a runway look from Dolce & Gabbana’s fall/winter 2011 collection, was my first option. It’s soo beautiful! It looks great, yes, however, I thought it was a little too warm here in New York to be wearing a velvet tuxedo. Also, the jacket was a wee bit on a small side — I’m wearing a runway sample. It’s sad that I could no longer fit most sample sizes because of my recent weight gain. I need to start eating healthily (in smaller servings and of course, in moderation) and get on with a new exercise program.

I hope someday I’ll have a closet filled with tuxedos and blazers and jackets! It’s never too late to start collecting them.
I’m going through some of the pictures I took at the Jil Sander fall/winter 2011 show in Milan and some of these images are too precious not to be shared. Many of the jacket and coats from his new collection are flattering for women of all ages and sizes. Terrific shapes and silhouettes aside, the fabrics that were used at the show made an indelible mark in my head. Let me ask you this — who needs the pomp and pretentiousness of embellishment when you have stunning fabric to begin with?

One of the most important things I’ve learned over time is that it’s better to be early rather than late. Yes, most shows DO start late but Prada is one of those shows where I’ll do anything AND everything to drop whatever it is I’m doing in order to be at the show venue an hour before the show time indicated on the invitation. Season after season, hundreds and hundreds of people queue and wait behind the massive gate at via Fogazzaro before they even open it.

There’s a reason why a Balmain dress is not for the faint of heart or wallet for that matter. I’m going through the photos I took at the fall winter 2011 Balmain show and this dress, worn by Anja Rubik, caught my eye. I can’t get over the amount of work involved! Just look at the sheer number of sequins, beads, crystals and embellishments.

Self Service magazine’s photographer caught me photographing my beloved Anna Wintour at the fall/winter 2011 show. So gracious and kind, that woman. And the look on Tim Blanks’ face? Priceless.
