LaraStone1 CFDA Arrivals: Lara, Ana, DVF, Gwyneth, SJP, Iman....

Arrivals at CFDA were looking phenomenal. Across the board it was hard to find anyone who looked overly predictable or just flat-out wrong. Surely this is in large part because it’s a fashion event and many of the attendess are experts (designers, models, stylists), but perhaps we’re seeing signs of the design focal point moving away from shoes and shifting to dresses and accessories (specifically necklaces), making for a visually more compelling red carpet image. One can hope anyway. Dress length ranged from very short to trains, but white played against black and flowerful prints were two big color trends. Sheen was also a theme, as was relaxed fabrics. HighSnobette favorites included Allison Pill, Hana Soukupova, DVF and Lara Stone (but only because she is currently in the can-do-no-wrong category).

Many more looks after the flip.

Gucci: Frida & Elle Put It Down!

18 February 2008, 20.38 | Posted in Books, Fashion | No comments »

Elle magazine has been killing it for a while now. That it’s not considered to be the premiere mainstream U.S. fashion mag–hands down over Vogue–is something I do not get at all. Or maybe Ms. Wintour is working some mojo that is beyond my realm of understanding. Heh, B prolly sold her damn soul to the devil is what it is.

Anyway, great feature on the new sheriffette at Gucci, Frida Giannini. ‘Member not very long ago when folks were freaking OUT when Tom Ford left, predicting all sorts of doom and gloom? Well, they aint sweating his departure any more are they? In fact, what in the hell is he doing these days anyway? Fine as ole Tom may be, shoot, Santino’s getting more play than him these days.

Here’s a sampling of some images from the Gucci shoot I liked. (Though, on a side note, fashion-smashion, let it be known that the VAST majority of $$$ this company makes is from bag sales. The clothing isn’t a significant money maker.)

^^Say hello to Frida. She says: “The Gucci woman now can wear high heels but she doesn’t want to die in them.” Whatever that means!
