    Balmain, oh, Balmain! (2)

    Remember my previous post about Balmain: Lily Donaldson in Balmain? Well, I decided to turn it into a Balmain, oh, Balmain! series and this post's going to be number two in the series. Turns out that this floor length sequin gown , in both black and gold, from the Balmain A/W 2010 collection is the favorite of magazine editors, models, and many more (hehe, hint: the person who's writing this). So I've been following where this gown's been showing up. So here it is, the same black floor length sequin gown that Lily Donaldson was wearing in Elle UK, spotted in a spread for Harper's Bazaar Spain and Vogue Russia.

    Worn by Tanga Moreau and photographed by Nico for the December 2010 issue of the Harper's Bazaar Spain for a spread titled Yo Soy la Fiesta. Strong, beautiful, and feminine!

    Porcelain Dress

    Hellooo! Sorry about the extremely long hiatus. Has it been a month? It's seriously felt like forever though. School work has really caught up and now I'm past the semester's assignments and time for exams! Nonetheless, I've found some pretty fashion pieces and pictures to share. I first noticed this really pretty porcelain, blue and white china dress in Roberto Cavalli’s 40th anniversary book. Julia Stegner's wearing Roberto Cavalli's F/W 2005 dress and photographed by Mert & Marcus. Then I noticed it in an article on about Bergdorf Goodman store window displays. It's a such interesting interpretation of porcelain vases, with an Asian vibe (note the dragon on the dress), and so beautifully fitted. Amazing.
