I Love that Lavender Blonde

By Amanda Del Duca


Yes! Yes! YES! Here we go, the Chanel Spring 2010 Couture runway show in Paris is on YouTube and this pastel and silver fantasy has me completely star-struck. So many things:

1. GAGA hair. YEP. Karl’s models walked with giant hair bows and lavender purple streaks through the bangs.

2. There is ONE look that involves black (the silk tuxedo dress, interesting, no?) and Mr. Lagerfeld wears gray. Shock, gasp!!!

3.The space age rococo-heeled silver booties, neeeeedddd them.

4. Gianbaptist in a head-to-toe metallic gold. Faboosh!!

5. Note Kanye and Amber Rose front row, you know Mr.West is vying for those metallic shoes stat.

Kate Hudson in Emilio Pucci and Cartier Diamonds at the 16th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards and in a Marchesa strapless silk crepe gown with Casadei’s signature 3504 triple platform pump.

FYI, Rachel Zoe is Kate’s stylist. OBVS.

“I love all clothes so much. It’s like the best part of the morning, getting dressed. I kind of like all clothes. I just put on what I feel like. Some days I feel really girly, but sometimes I feel masculine. Today I just woke up and was like ‘I want to wear a suit.’  It’s Bottega Venetta, by the way,” Kate Hudson to Nylon Magazine December 2009.

Just for Kicks

By Amanda Del Duca

Collaborations between sneaker brands and high fashion houses is one of my new favs and lately there have been some exciting pairings. Missoni designed a pair of Chuck Taylors with prints from their men’s fall winter 2010 collection and the new model will go on sale in April for 200 euros. Emporio Armani collaborates with Rebok to create the  EA7 which will be sold only in Emporio Armani boutiques and select Reebok concept stores starting  July 2010.

 D&G released the 2010 Clean and High sneakers that were inspired by the style of Japanese designer Ato Matsumoto. The hi-top model will sell for$513. Also very exciting is the re-release of the Adidas’s high conductor model. The sneaker dates back to 1986, and now it’s back in new color combinations – my favorite the black and brown.

Givenchy 2010 sneakers are a serious metallic gold  authentic hi-top sneaker with various straps and lots of bling. Nicolas Ghesquiere for Balenciaga’s sneakers for the spring season combines crocodile skin with suede, JEUJ.

Puma and Alexander McQueen team up to make an Air Jordan for $434 and Christian Louboutin gives his take on men’s shoes with the Freddy Flat ‘Las Vegas’ for $1200 which features patent leather with silver toned spikes and the signature red bottom.
