Never Quench Your Thirst While Blogging...

It's very dangerous to experience an unexplained absence when your part of the blogging world. So I figured I'd use these 5 minutes I have to explain my particular (particularly unfortunate) absence.
A few days ago, almost a week I think, I spilled water on my laptop. From now on, whenever anyone looks up the word stupid in the dictionary, there will be a picture of me right there staring at them.
It was a complete accident, of course. I think I had a glass of water on my desk, right next to my laptop, and I reached over to grab something happened. It wasn't too much, but it was enough to disable my computer, for now at least.
Rest assured (well, I'm assuring myself, really. Lol), I'm sending it to be fixed, and my blog should be back and up and running in no time at all.
I'm so sorry for being out of commission for so long - it really pained me not even being able to say anything, or to explain the situation. I hope I've mended things, even if just a little, with this post. So unfortunately it still means a few more days, maybe even weeks, before regular posting will return.
Just out of curiosity ( and reassurance that I'm not the only one, lol) - has this indescribably annoying situation ever happened to any of you?

To finish off this post, I thought I'd share my thoughts on my personal Best Dressed at this year's much anticipated Academy Awards.
Marion Cotillard -- Heidi Klum
Marion - oh she really is turning into a style icon, isn't she? I don't feel that this picture really does her look justice, because when she got up on stage to accept her Oscar ( whoops, sorry spoiler to anyone who hasn't seen the ceremony yet) she looked positively stunning. Heidi - and of course, the perpetual Best Dressed List topper. Heidi and her shrinking frame outshone even the Hollywood heavyweights, this year. Amongst a sea of black gowns, Heidi Klum emerges draped in shocking red - dressed to kill.

London - Fall 08 Ready-to-Wear

So I figured, now that it's over, it was high time I did a post on London Fashion Week, right? I've gathered enough looks together to blog about, over the whole course of London FW. There was only four shows that really stood out in my eyes. Not that the others weren't good - of course they were - but these were the ones that really caught my eyes.
Allegra Hicks
Oh, I always knew I would like the Allegra Hicks show, pretty much because I just love the name Allegra. Lol. But onto the fashion - some really gorgeous coats here, these two on the left being the standouts. Especially the one on the far left. Have you ever seen a more gorgeous trench? I can't really say the same for the makeup, though. It was a bit scary, but no matter. (right) Allegra's take on the classic LBD. I can just see this becoming the next big thing. I've said it before and I'll say it again - I love belts, don't get me wrong, and sometimes they are really pivotal to the success of a collection, but to be honest, right now I'm just so sick of them, lol. Am I the only one?

Oh, the use of colour is just inspiring! Honestly, some of the pattern work for this collection is worthy of a 'haute couture' label. But for all the gorgeous, colourful, patterned gowns there was a simple, but bold-in-its-own-way coat. My favourite? The dark magenta of course. But the ruched/flower detail on the taupe trench (second from the right) is really interesting and original.

And, of course, everyone's favourite - Luella. There's a picture making its way around the fashion blogs of Alexa Chung (here from Coco's Tea Party) in an adorable pink Luella dress, which most are positively raving about. Having seen this dress, I thought I'd check out what good ol' Luella is up to these days. I can't understand how it's the same designer. Don't get me wrong, this most recent Luella collection was highly original, and very interesting to look at (practicality is a bit of an issue, though. Lol) But I was very shocked to learn it was designed by the same team.
Anyway - onto this collection. As I said, some highly original looks, as usual. E.g. the first model came out dressed head-to-toe in a modernized version of a witch's costume, hat included. Can't see this trend catching on...It was an entertaining collection, for sure - I love the aesthetics involved in a Luella show.

Vivienne Westwood
Ah, Ms. Westwood. One of the most creative and experimental female designer's of our time. It's always lovely to see Ms. Westwood's collections - a visual feast of creativity, as I like to call it. This season was no disappointment. I got a slight preppy feel from some of the looks (second from the left), which was quite nice to see (I'm always up for a bit of prep). And of course, being a winter collection, there were coats galore. My two favourites here on the far right and far left.
Altogether a very delightful (but with a somewhat absence of colour), yet surprisingly safe collection.

Oh dear, we're already off to Milan. Ah, there is simply not enough time to cover these fashion weeks.
Can't wait for Paris - I just received a free documentary on Karl Lagerfeld with this month's Vogue Australia, but I haven't had a chance to watch it yet. I'm excited.

Pretty in Plaid

Lauren Conrad - always on top of the trends.

Plaid was a trend that began popping up in a few major shows during New York Fashion Week. I think this is something we can expect to be seeing a lot more of this winter - as LC has shown us, it's already catching on.
I'm a little on-the-fence with plaid. It's always a bit of a Hit or Miss situation, really, especially when it comes to coats. As Rihanna has demonstrated, yellow plaid has the potential to be super hot! But if we look at Peter Som's plaid on the left, which is basically just an oversized pyjama top, well I can't really say I'll be rushing out to by anything like that, anytime soon...
What do you all think? Plaid: hot or not?

Alice in Wonderland...

As you've probably noticed by now, London Fashion Week updates seem to be lacking a bit over here in 16 Diaries land...This is only because, entering a new (and more difficult) year of school has tightened my schedule - I love London Fashion Week (well, I love all Fashion Weeks) I really do, London probably has some of the most artsy, eclectic designers around and it's a real pleasure viewing their collections. I have still been looking at all the collections, and will definitely blog about any particular one that really catches my eye.
So far, the only thing I've really noticed is another appearance by my new favourite Australian runway model (I never used to like her - I think I do now because I'm not watching her complaining on AusNTM every week anymore. Lol) Alice Burdeu. I couldn't give you an exact run-down of all the shows she's appeared in so far, but as far as I know it's been...
I'm so happy that she's finally making a name for herself internationally. Maybe she'll become the Next Big Thing, maybe she won't - but at least she's finally modelling. I think she's good for runway because she's one of those blank-face models - this type of model doesn't always translate so well to the editorial world, but that's ok, like I said, at least it's all happening, now.
Mini trend update: as we can see from Giles (also shown at other shows such as Oscar de la Renta etc), leopard-print heels are looking to be pretty hot this winter. I like the look of that.

Never underestimate the power of Polaroid...

So remember back when I had put a Polaroid camera on my Christmas Wishlist? Well, I forgot to let you all know - my wish came true! How exciting, right? Keeping in devoted-Polaroid-owner tradition, I've already started a mini photo collection - sticking all the photos I've taken (which is only 11, so far) on a designated area of my wall.
So, keeping all this in mind, you can imagine my excitement to come across this cool little feature on Polaroid snapshots of starlets backstage at NY Fashion Week! There's some really amazing shots here - that's the power of Polaroid...
Anne Hathaway - screening of 'Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton' documentary.

Eva Longoria Parker - backstage at Michael Kors.

Ashley Olsen - amfAR gala.

Sophia Bush - Rock and Republic.

Tyra Banks - backstage at Baby Phat.

Chloe Sevigny, Milla Jovovich, Paula Patton and Anne Hathaway - Miss Sixty.

Oh I feel absolutely inspired, now!

Hit or Miss?

It's double whammy this time. Boy, I sure hope Rihanna hasn't hit her peak, making two fashion faux pas (as far as I'm concerned) in the same week.
(left) Rihanna at the InStyle and Grammy Salute to Fashion. You know what? The one thing that makes this outfit a miss? The haircut. I don't think it looks good at all. Don't get me wrong, I usually really like this haircut, it can and does look great on lots of people. I just don't like it on Rihanna. She would have totally pulled this off with her signature asymmetrical bob, now no longer.
(right) Rihanna at the Grammys. Again, it's the haircut. But, even with the bob, I still don't think she would have looked too hot. It's just the wrong dress for her, in general. The colour looks great, but the cut and overall shape are just wrong for Rihanna.
But what do you think? Did the umbrella-toting-high-noting-singer get it right? Or oh so wrong?

Fall 2008 Ready-to-Wear Day 9

Well, well, well...It was certainly an interesting day for fashion, that's for sure. I don't know that you could say NY Fashion Week went out with a bang, exactly, because to be honest there was nothing particular ground-breaking about any of these collections. There were some surprises, that's for sure.
Marc Jacobs
Fashionistas all over the world are scratching their heads in confusion, right now. What to make of the Marc Jacobs collection...? Well, it may as well have been a menswear collection as far as I'm concerned. I don't want to sound offensive, I'm just trying to make sense of it. It was very masculine, which surprised me because to begin with there were some very soft, feminine colours being used - but this collection was all about shapes, I suppose.
Even Marc Jacobs himself admitted that he "really wasn't very inspired this season. I just live my life." But when pressed further, conceded that it was about glamour and beautiful women. Well, I didn't see it that's for sure. But to turn all this positive, it was a very original collection, that is for damn sure, lol. Even if I don't like it, I know there will be lots of women out there dying to get their hands on some of these pieces. That's the power of Marc Jacobs...

Donna Karan
Another fairly surprising collection. In the beginning Donna Karan was all about the 'bodysuit' and power dressing for women. This time around, it was all about loose flowing materials, and luxurious colours. At first I didn't really like it (I'm probably not Donna Karan's target consumer, lol), but it's sort of growing on me. I did like this Gatsby-inspired outfit on the left.
A gold runway and a palette to match. It was all about luxury at Donna Karan...

L'Wren Scott
By default, my favourite collection of the day. Lol. But I did genuinely, really like it. It was all about loose-body-con fits - and all the clothes look nice against pale skin. That's a bonus. Lol. There were some interesting corporate-chic looks, with unusually tailored shirts, and cropped jackets (far right), that were very pretty.

I am in love with this look on the left. If I could, I would wear it right now, around the city. As much as I love black tights, it's quite nice to see a change. Even though you wouldn't think so, these white tights (left) are very winter appropriate, too. They bring a softer edge to winter fashion.

Ralph Lauren
Well, we always knew there would be a lot to write about when it comes to Ralph Lauren. He is definitely one of my favourite designers, consistently coming up with beautiful, chic, classic collections that wow me every time. Mainly working with a palette of reds, greens, blacks, purples, and golds, this collection was very Life-on-the-Ranch that could be easily translated to city chic.

I'm pretty sure there wasn't a single look that I didn't like. The trouble was, condensing it down to 7 at the least (mission accomplished, lol). I think this red and black outfit on the left is my favourite - it's so casual, one could wear it anywhere.
What have we learned from Ralph Lauren? Plaid. Is. Huge. From jackets, to skirts, and even dresses (middle), plaid is back.

Well that's it for New York Fashion Week. But don't worry, we're off to Europe for the shows now!
I don't think I will cover the rest of the shows in the same way I covered New York. It's a bit too much work to squeeze into my schedule right now. I'll figure something out, though, don't worry. Lol. So tell me, which was your favourite collection from New York Fashion Week?

Fall 2008 Ready-to-Wear Day 8

Oh dear, just one more day to go. The final collections of New York Fashion Week Fall 08 are being presented right now as I'm writing this, and I would love to check them out, so my 'reviews' will be kept to a minimum. Lol.
Zac Posen
This collection certainly impressed me more than Zac Posen's past works. So I'm pleased to announce that I've just invited myself into the Zac Posen fan club, if you'll have me, of course.
I especially love the LBD in the middle - it's very Kate Bosworth and Rachel Bilson (maybe even me, too, one day? Lol). But seriously, what's with the Mickey Mouse hair?

Love, love, love this. It's innocent and flirty, with a naughty, sexy twist. Once again, the Mickey Mouse hair is a little distracting.

Bill Blass
I almost didn't include Bill Blass's collection - I only checked it out at the last minute and I'm pretty glad that I did. There were some truly beautiful pieces being presented here. Both of Cat McNeil's dresses (left and right) are simply gorgeous. And the middle outfit is so impeccably styled and the simplicity of the colours is genius, I just fell in love it.

Calvin Klein
I never expect bold colours, or crazy designs from Calvin Klein, which I believe is a good system because it means he never lets me down. Lol. Without treading unsafe waters, Calvin Klein keeps coming up with smart, simple and chic collections, ever perfect for the office, or that smart-casual party which no one knows what to wear to. Boring? You'd think so, but I like to think of it as...traditional.

Naeem Khan
Beautiful, just beautiful. Not necessarily the whole way through. But when it mattered the most, at least...
I adore the shapely dress on the left...

Another meh collection - which is disappointing because I usually really like Phi. Ever since I saw America Ferrera wearing one of their gowns, I've been an avid fan. But this collection was, like I said, a bit...whatever. Is anyone else getting sick of black skinny belts? Lol.

Vera Wang
I've said it before and I'll say it again - I'm not the hugest fan of Vera Wang's Ready-to-Wear. Her bridal creations, on the other hand...Having said that, though, I'm really loving these two looks. I guess they both show the versatility of this collection (that was one plus). The darker more edgy Vera Wang woman, then the softer yet eccentric fashion-conscious woman.

Don't go anywhere. Final NY Fashion Week day coverage coming right up!

Quote of the Week

"Let's face it. I have small boobs, cellulite and stretch marks. I'm lazy. I don't even work out. I eat. I'd rather be lumpy and heavy than skinny and miserable."
Sienna Miller, on her body image.

Ok...There are two ways we could look at this -
1. Hello? Does Sienna Miller own a mirror? She's one of the skinniest women in Hollywood! I really hope she's not insinuating that she's "lumpy and heavy". If Sienna Miller is fat, then us other females have no chance.
2. It's quite admirable that she's being so frank about her faults, and she's obviously happy with who she is. That's always nice to see...

Interpret this how you want to, I suppose.

Wardrobe Envy: Eva Longoria Parker

These probably aren't the clearest photos, but you get the basic gist of the outfit - namely the boots (hot, hot, hot), the sunnies (the bigger, the better) and of course the pink Birkin bag (although, is that python? My gosh, that is one trend I will never understand). Eva has always been a fashion conscious one, but it seems these days that this consciousness is translating to her street choices. Me like. Lol.

Fall 2008 Ready-to-Wear Day 7

Wow, there has just been so much to cover this season. It's so exhausting! Lol. I can't think of anything of funny or even remotely interesting to begin this post with because I'm completely witty-ed-out. I'll try my best to review the collections with as much gusto as I can muster, but no promises. Lol.
This collection was very Versace circa Spring 08. It seems the styles and hair/makeup inspirations for that season have been whole-heartedly repeated here and there this season. Not that it's bad - Spring 08 was a very gorgeous season. What I really loved about this collection (besides the use of colour - really, it's just a blur of beautiful patterns and bright colours. Oh and black belts - yes more belts. Lol) is the somewhat grunge aspect...

...almost every piece in this collection can be paired with leather boots. And even though the clothes themselves are rather feminine and soft, all the models look downright fierce - it's a really interesting contrast.

3.1 Phillip Lim
I've heard lots of criticism about this collection -mainly that it's very old lady like. I get this - but, in my opinion, it worked. When I first viewed this collection, I didn't like it at all. But the more I look at it, the more I like it. It's really wonderfully styled (one outfit in particular, which I didn't actually put up here, for some reason) with accessories, the clothes are very wearable - that's always a plus. The only thing that really needed to go was the makeup. He probably could've avoided the whole old lady debacle by choosing different makeup, I think.

Isaac Mizrahi
Ever since the whole ScarJo chest-grabbing at the Golden Globes incident, I haven't really been able to take Isaac Mizrahi seriously as a designer. But now I realised, I don't really have to because his designs just aren't really my style. I did like these four pieces, though. I thought the waist-cinching ribbons were cute.
But as whole, his collection didn't really wow me. Maybe I'm just having an off-day?

I'm usually a huge Marchesa fan. But this collection, to be honest, was a bit meh. These four looks were quite lovely, but as far as I'm concerned, not really up to regular Marchesa standards. I see Jennifer Lopez as the somewhat poster-girl for Marchesa, so sometimes I judge their collections on whether or not I could see J.Lo wearing one of their looks - well, I'm afraid I can't see J.Lo wearing anything from here. But I could be wrong.
Oh well, everybody has their dud seasons, don't they?

Michael Kors
Michael Kors - I really love his name. It's very classy, I believe. I really, really loved these three looks. The brown dress on the right is just gorgeous - very New York socialite. Middle dress is cute - I can see someone like Kirsten Dunst wearing this. And the gown on the right is just to die for.

Bits and Pieces
These were some looks that I simply adored. They're from certain collections that I didn't necessarily like as a whole, and therefore couldn't really include in the post, but I loved these outfits so much I couldn't bring myself to not include them. I couldn't even pick a favourite because they're all too gorgeous (well, the VPL isn't exactly gorgeous, but there's something about that draws me in - it's something I wish I could wear, but believe me, it would be unflattering).

There we go. That wasn't too bad was it? Lol.

Fall 2008 Ready-to-Wear Day 6

The end is drawing ever closer. For NY Fashion Week, at least. But don't worry, fashion week lovers, there are still 3 more cities of impeccable style to praise.
Day 6 was an up and down day for fashion. Some collections were the best I've ever seen. Some the opposite (oh, isn't that awful?). I deliberately tried to choose as less pictures as I could, with the excepetion of Monique and B&M, because (as per usual, this year) I'm quite tight for time.
Monique Lhullier
Honestly, did anyone view this collection and not fall in love with it. I'm usually not a fan of Monique's Ready-to-Wear (whereas, her bridal creations are some of the most gorgeous things to grace the Earth), but this was a whole new side of her talent that I haven't seen. The colours, the jewels, the hairstyles (I'm not crazy for the makeup, but hey, that's a whole other post), and of course the clothes, namely the evening gowns - it was perfect.

I've always thought of Rodarte as a very feminine brand (correct me if I'm wrong), with a somewhat Gothic twist. Well this collection was no exception, just replace the Gothic twist with an element of fairy-like delicacy. Keeping with a palette of a mostly pastel colours, it was very soft on the eye, and the materials look like they're so light they would just float. Beautiful, beautiful stuff.

Badgley Mischka
See this is why I don't understand why some weren't so crazy about Teri Hatcher's SAG dress. Badgley and Mischka. Are. Fashion. Geniuses. It's that simple, really. Lol, whoops how patronising did that sound?
I loved everything about this collection - these top three outfits, in particular. It's chic-street-style at it's best. Oh, I can't wait to get my hands on some of that.

My only hang up was that the evening gowns were less than impressive this time around. But hey, floor length just wasn't they're strength this season, there's nothing wrong with that at all. Lurex striped dresses (left), who would have thought of something so genius? Badgley and Mischka, of course.
Loving the big hats. Told you they'd catch on. Lol.

J. Mendel
This collection was a bit meh. Loved this look, though. I can see Angelina Jolie wearing this.

Karen Walker
I've always really liked Karen Walker's fashions. She's got this quirkiness, that's just so original and non-pretentious, I just can't help but love her. This season was no exception - Karen moved away from 70s/80s inspiration and replaced her big-on-yellow palette with a more varied combination of colours. It was very naval, to say the least. Gotta love that.

Marc by Marc
I love Marc Jacobs. I will defend him with my life. But I didn't like this collection. This outfit was the only one I even remotely liked, and even having said that, I'm not that crazy about it. Actually, yes I do like the outfit, it's just the model's expression and the fact that the flashbulb has made her look as white as a ghost that's annoying me.
I can't wait for the main Marc Jacobs collection to be presented tomorrow. It's supposed to be a huge deal...

Hit or Miss?

You know I usually don't like to comment on celebrities' street style, because who am I to judge what they wear in their personal time? But I'm not judging Mischa's outfit, I'm just questioning it, really. I'm confused. A few years ago, not even that long ago, she was a style icon. What happened? Perhaps it's the fired-the-stylist case? Maybe this is is just the real Mischa? Either way, just wanted to know what everyone thought.
What do you think? Did the obviously-former-style-icon get it right? Or oh so wrong?

I See Red...

Last Friday was National Wear Red Day, in America. Every year on the first Friday in February, people all around the USA wear red to raise awareness of women's heart disease. The Heart Truth is a national awareness campaign for women about heart disease, who introduced the Red Dress as the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness. An annual fashion show was held featuring models and celebrities wearing red dresses.
Just the basics, for you there...Sara Ramirez is a real inspiration to all the curvy girls out there. You go, girl! Lol.

Camryn Manheim seems like such a fun person. It would be great to hang out with her for a day, I reckon.

Maria Menounos, Ashanti and Heidi Klum strut their stuff for a good cause.

I really just wanted to show how much I love Sara R. She's one of my curvy girl idols.

Fall 2008 Ready-to-Wear Day 5

Well, to think I thought Day 4 was huge...
Scratch Day 4 being my favourite, the collections from Day 5 have taken that place of my heart.
Proenza Schouler
Hold on a that? Yes it is! It's Alice Burdeu on the left there! Awesome outfit, she looks amazing. I think runway is definitely more her element, over photo shoots. Well it's good to see she's finally starting to make a name for herself, internationally.
Anyway...I don't think I've been this confused in a long time - before Spring 08 Ready-to-Wear I was a pretty big non-fan of Proenza Schouler. But something has changed. Something must have changed, because I simply loved this collection. I really liked the white outfits, they were really lovely, but unfortunately most of them got washed out by the white runway.

Even I would wear this around town (only Paris, of course). To and from a fashion show, a romantic dinner, a cocktail party in winter - this cute outfit is very practical. So what's changed? Is it them (Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough, right)? it me?

Lol. I had to do some minor editing on the picture second from the left - it was a tad see-through! I thought it might be a bit inappropriate.
Onto the fashion - Sheaths. Are. Hot. Well, according to Harvey Weinstein anyway. I really liked this collection. I think that might have something to do with the fact that, with Halston being relaunched, new team members have been recruited - Rachel Zoe included. I don't know about you guys, but I have extremely similar taste to Ms. Zoe. I think if she ever designed a fashion collection, I would adore it.

Oscar de la Renta
Loved it, loved it, loved it. One problem, though - of course, these being autumn/winter styles, it's fur galore. I'm a vegetarian (well, vege-quarian, technically), and am quite strongly opposed to fur as fashion. But fur aside, this purple and grey outfit on the right is to die for! Impeccably styled - it's casual chic with an air of effortless class about it.

Ordinarily, I would probably think these shoes are tacky. But, Oscar de la Renta being the epitome of elegance and sophistication manages to change my mind. They're very cute, but would probably only work with black tights. I can definitely see this green dress on the right making an appearance on a red carpet sometime soon.

And of course, the evening gowns. There two were my favourite, and positively flawless. If I were Flavia (left) or Liya (right) I know I would certainly be smiling if I was sporting one of those gowns.

Peter Som
This collection didn't really do anything for me (except for the rather lovely dark red dress on the right). I mainly posted these because it's a rather obvious showcase of a new trend, it seems. Flannel. I had no idea that high school trends could translate to runway trends. But it seems it has - flannel has been popping up at a few different shows, Peter Som being one of them.

This was a collection that I forgot to (aka, didn't even think to) write about yesterday. I was flipping through it, and I quite liked it. It was artistic, well-styled and abundant in black. This outfit was my favourite, and the pattern of the skirt pretty much backs up my flannel-is-hot-for-some-reason theory. Lol.

Betsey Johnson
Oh, how can you not like Betsey? She's so wild and individual - a real flair for original fashion. I've seen better Betsey Johnson collections, to be honest, but that doesn't mean that this one wasn't impressive. There were some rather interesting sunnies (far right) that weaved they're way through the collection - similar to those at Dior's Spring 08 Ready-to-Wear collection.

I really love this outfit on the left. It's French chic with a hint of rock. I love this middle outfit as well. It's so 80s, in a good way, but 80s has been back for ages now, so it's no surprise. I would totally wear this pink outfit on the right, but as a top, I don't really have the legs to wear it as dress like the model - the boots are cute too.

Doo. Ri
I loved Doo. Ri's last collection and I love this new one too. She has a very distinctive style - it's very New York. Just the way I like it. Lol. Lots of black, lots of layering, some cute knit hats for the new season and all paired with hot black tights.

Apparently, Doo. Ri Chung designed all the accessories - shoes, hats, gloves, jewellery - herself. Wow that's a pretty amazing effort for a fairly 'new' designer. All the accessories were just as cute and stylish as the clothes themselves. Perhaps she'll release an accessories line of her own to showcase this even more? Here's hoping.

Wow, that was very tiring. Lol.
Only a few more days of NY Fashion Week to go, unfortunately. Looks like we're in for some pretty impressive style this autumn and winter.
