{Fall 16 Couture} Zuhair Murad

When Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody is playing, you know the energy of the collection is going to be high. Infused with the ’70’s vibe, Zuhair Murad‘s Fall 2016 Couture collection broke out of the princess shimmer gown stereotype and went a little rocker, a little hippie chic, and a little Gustav Klimt art piece.

The base looks were very much house Murad, with sheer skintight embroidered body silhouette gowns, jumpsuits, a caftan, mini dresses, and a stunning bridal gown to close the show. The vintage 70’s vibe was infused with ruffled hemlines over thigh high boots, velvet capes, dipped down cartwheel hats, and intricate macrame embroideries.

{Fall 16 Couture} Valentino

With Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri as the dynamic duo at the helm of the Valentino fashion house, the runway shows have always been a bit magical. Not so much because of lavish settings or props, but because of the high culture for the inspirations of their collections. You are immersed in the society that Piccioli and Chiuri have either dreamed up, or are emulating through their designs, and with their strict and exacting detail coupled with their romantic aesthetic, the result is intoxicating.

{Fall 2016 Couture} Atelier Versace

An incredible departure from Donatella Versace’s house signatures of ultra sexy, amped up embroideries, and logos, the Atelier Fall 16 Couture collection showed powerful pieces that showed off the house’s softer side, with draping, tailoring, and sculpting. The show opened in stellar drama, with Karen Elson in a cinched waist blush cashmere coat lined in mint, with one lapel falling off the shoulder, revealing a scarlet bustier gown underneath.

Versace started with rich and unusual color combinations in crimson, blush, lavendar, grey, and sky blue with mostly long silhouettes, building sculptural and draping details to create long, arcing shapes around the female form.

{Luxe Holiday Style} 20 Amazing Last Minute Looks For July 4th

Wondering what to wear to the July 4th parties this weekend? My go-to place for the best last minute designer looks has always been RTR. No, this isn’t a collab post – they have no idea I’m writing this! I discovered them several years ago, tried them out, and have been addicted ever since. Especially since I’m a last minute planner.

So if you still don’t have a dress for a party this weekend, take a look. Their really quick shipping is a lifesaver. Another bonus: A lot of the dresses come with a free second size just in case the first one isn’t the right fit. A totally necessity for in-between sizers like me!

After 35 years in the designing business, this year is a bit of a milestone for her, and the collection definitely feels a bit nostalgic for heritage Herrera. Perfect for the current fashion clime that can’t seem to get enough of the vintage-inspired.
