{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.

This year, the Fall 2016 Couture collection celebrates the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death through Elizabethan period inspiration. There were puffed sleeves, lace up vests, high white ruffs, cleric’s robes, cinched bodices, doublets, brocades, and lattice work.

{Fall 16 Couture} Chanel

Karl Lagerfeld is known for creating dreamlike backdrops for his runway shows, and the Fall 16 Couture show was perhaps the apex for most Chanel fans who were there to witness it. Lagerfeld actually flew in the ateliers and their workshops in which the magic of Chanel is made, and gave Chanel coveteurs a chance to witness – during a live runway couture show – the actual process of making couture clothing. Apparently, there was nothing staged about it. He instructed the ateliers to continue their work just as they had back in their actual shop. Um, what?! What an incredible jaw-on-the-floor moment!

{Fall 16 Couture} Dior

Citing Dior’s 1947 New Look Bar jacket as principle inspiration for its Fall 16 couture collection, Lucie Meier and Serge Ruffieux, interim designers for the fashion house, chose the perfect note to exit on. If rumors are true then it’s Maria Grazia Chiuri of Valentino who is heading over to become the new artistic director of Dior. As for now, if this is in fact the duo’s last collection as interim head designers, what a way to go.

{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!

{Luxe Look for Less: Celeb Style Trend} Alessandra Ambrosio Suits Up

Fashion savant Alessandra Ambrosio stepped was in Paris this week to walk in the Balmain runway show. Of course, her street style was Balmain and on point, as she was working one of my favorite up and coming style trends – the minimalist suit.

Pair a sleek blazer over a tee, tank or bodysuit with a pair of skinny jeans, or like Alessandra wore, some ripped up cropped jeans. And seriously, how adorable is her daughter?!
