Jason Wu Pre-Fall 2012

It seems like we just met Jason Wu and yet he has been hustlin hard in the fashion game for most of his 29 years. Yes, the man is only 29, yet he has become a household name since dressing Mrs. Obama at the Inauguration 3 years ago. What's wonderful about Wu is his impeccable ability to just know what women want. Ladies, am I right? Wouldn't you love to wear these fabulous clothes to work, a cocktail party, an inauguration? Mmmhmm, that's what I thought.

Chanel Pre-Fall 2012

It's technically still 2011, yet here we are, enjoying the 2012 Pre-Fall collections.  Karl Lagerfeld has apparently never been to India yet his latest collection for Chanel is heavily influenced by India. Still, there is a distinct European ambiance to it. I feel as though the clothes tell the story of a Parisian woman vacationing in India trying to blend in while wearing a $5000 white silk blouse. I adore it. I thought the styling was absolutely stunning and really enjoyed the jewelry/head pieces and dark eye makeup. The clothes were also spectacular and had a luxe feel to them that was harmoniously accompanied by the lavish display of fruits, flowers and candles on the runway. All in all, another gorgeous collection that keeps me satisfied until February when the Fall Fashion Week frenzy begins!

The Other Fabulous Olsen in Valentino

First of all, I'd like to apologize for being MIA for the past few months. I've been quite busy with residency applications, interviews, moving to LA, etc. I actually went through and watched every single fashion show during the Spring 2012 Fashion Weeks in September but I never had time to blog about it. Le sigh. Well I'm still super busy but found a pocket of time and some much needed inspiration to blog again!

I think it's pretty safe to say that the name Olsen is here to stay in the fashion world. Of course, we immediately think of MK and Ash, the designing duo behind multiple clothing lines, including the very fabulous The Row. But there is another trendy Olsen in the family proving that their genes are indeed FABULOUS. Elizabeth Olsen is the twins' younger sis and while her style is distinctly different than her older sibs, it's still very Olsen.

The younger Olsen was never really anyone I paid attention to until I recently saw the movie Martha Marcy May Marlene, which by the way is terrific. She is definitely on my radar now, especially after seeing her recent red carpet appearances. Here she is at the Gotham Independent Film Award last week looking absolutely glamorous in a Valentino Resort 2012 gown. The amount of detail in the beading is stunning and I love the nude tone of the dress with the crystal embellishment. I am officially a fan, Ms. Olsen!
