Priceless couture

hiroko-roger-vivier-bruno-frisoni-09 Days of fashion  couture, the  event that recently took place in Paris, the capital of  fashion, have defied the economic laws, have ignored the global crisis and once again celebrated femininity and sophistication.

Karl Lagerfeld set the tone of this new edition and the verdict of the new trend in haute couture. He declared that  he sees  the recession as a tool that will remove all those bad tastes and effects of bling bling. This fact was fully illustrated  on the podium in Paris, where Christian Lacroix, Christian Dior, Karl Lagerfeld, the House of Chanel and Givenchy were brilliant with conceit, opulence tempered and eccentric accents.

Special image  made the shoes couture house of Roger Vivier, designer Bruno Frisoni seemed not to know that the world is going through a delicate financial moment. The new collection of shoes is a tribute to luxury, glamor, artistic superiority and, last but not least, financial power. Several pairs of shoes, like those in the photo, have such an exorbitant price and so naturally in the same time if you consider the materials used: 45000 eur. 24 carats gold applications,  precious crystals, rare feathers and other details such as snake skin, silk and organza flowers, justify a sum that could save Iceland economy from bankruptcy.

Summer trends 2009 – What did you buy and what can you keep

For some ladies, summer is almost over, but for me is not. For more than a few years now, summer has extended its visit until October, and this is not the only good news. We can enjoy shopping at low prices  awesome summer outfits, because unfortunately for the stores sales don’t keep count of season and are usually beginning at the same date every year even the summer is still here.

So, as I said some of us can still go shopping for short skirts, long floral summer dresses, sandals and sunscreen.

I’ve recently read in the Cosmopolitan magazine an interesting article that helped me decide what shall I keep in my wardrobe for next summer and what I can still buy. I hope this article will be helpful for all ladies out there enjoying the summer and even for those who are getting ready for a new season because it’s always helpful to know what you can keep for the next season (you can never know when fashion returns).

BUY: Jewels in sea shades

Blue, green, turquoise, azure are among the hot colors of summer. So if you see anything in these colors that attracts your eye you have green light to buy it. Accessorize your outfit with bracelets, necklaces and earrings in the sea colors. They look gorgeous on your tanned skin and combined with fluid textures!

KEEP:  Over-sized Accessories

Big necklaces  with lots of  details and applications are trendy. For an exotic appearance create an oversize necklace by superimposing multiple thin necklaces.

Spectacular eye look- how to get it

Smokey eyes Eyeshadow applied generously around the eye, no matter the color, will accentuate your look. Play with the shade – don’t neglect the electric shades ( neon blue a la Proenza Schouler) – keeping in mind that the most en vogue are grey – cement ( Diane Von Fustenberg and Valentino), earthy shades (bleumarin, Vivienne Westwood and Moschino) and gold( Roberto Cavalli and Versace).

Lines Delicate line draw with black or brown eyeliner is very trendy this season ( from Dsquared2, Moschino or Bill Blass). Not even heavy lines, draw carefully on the superior eyelid,  can be called old fashioned, proof are daring makeups -inspired from the Gothic style- from Ermanno Scervino, Lanvin, Dior or Victor& Rolf fashion shows.

Up and away-new hair styles

Feel the breeze on the back of your neck with these new picks of the dreamiest summer up-dos inspired by the catwalk.

Pin-Up girl

Why it’s cool: Long hair haphazardly pinned into a bob was a huge hit at the Luella summer catwalk show. The beauty of this style is that as well as enjoying the look and feel of a short crop, you can tuck scraggy hair ends out of sight to protect them from sun damage.

How to do it: Start by spritzing a blow dry spray into your damp hair, such as Shu Uemura Art of Hair Liquid Fabric which gives volume as well as healthy shine. Let the spray dry naturally or roughly blow-dry your hair to create some texture. Now gather your hair at the ends and tie with a band. Gently start to roll hair under towards the nape and, when you reach the neck, fix it in place with some ribbed hair grips, like Boots Wavy Hair Pins for Thick Hair. Let a few wispy pieces escape for a soft effect and mist your finished style with an anti-humidity hairspray, like Therapi Frieze Fixx.
