Paris Spring 2009 Couture

Here's a litle roundup of Paris Fashion Week.I thought it would be best to write a little statement to every collection.Enjoy!

Stéphane Rolland:I like the straightness and purism of this collection but there's is missing something that gives this 'WOW'-effect.

Valentino:Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli,the new designers of Valentino show that they know what Haute Couture means.The collection is breathtaking and full of elegance. I love this cute red dress and the white ruffled coat. Oh how great would it be to own them?!

Martin Margiela Artisinal:Martin Margiela's style is always a bit strange to me but I like the Couture collection more than the RTW one. Nude bodies are a great statement. I wouldn't buy it but the colorful fringe dress would make a perfect eyecatcher plus it looks funky.

Marco de Vincenzo:It must has been horrible for the models to walk on these murder heels,even if they totally rock.The outfits are very clean and unspectacular but I am a fan of the cutouts.The black dress is so simple but good-looking. Reminds me to the one Ashley Olsen wore once.

Jean Paul Gaultier:Gaultier's collection is very artistic and I enjoyed watching it but I am not thrilled.

Givenchy:Ahh again such a great collection. There are tons of great stuff and I heart how they decorated the catwalk with blossoms.Wonderful!

Felipe Oliveira Baptista:What I really like on this collection are the various leggings and the booties. The black leggings with the sheer cutouts please me a lot.Smells like DYI huh?

Elie Saab:Elie Saab Couture dresses are always a dream. This year his couture collection takes me to heaven again, especially the 2nd dress. The bold shoes are a perfect change in style and so adorable.
Christian Lacroix:A great mix between grown-up and frisky looks.The dotted coat is too cute and this round gold bag super fly.

Christian Dior:Kind of lady chic style anyway Galliano did in my opinion a good job. The white dress on the right is a favorite and the shoes really caught my eyes.

Chanel:As always really classy and damn good.The two first looks from the left were faultless. Chapo karl!

Cathy Pill:By chosing a clean backround the designer made a good job otherwise these magical dresses wouldn't have shown their full advantage and prettiness.

Avalon Vega:The sheer booties are definately a hit but all in all I don't like the collection. It reminds me to candy floss.

Armani Privé:Armani seems quite adrogynous to me and I'm unsure wheter I like the collection or not. Yet I think the yellow jacket over the black dress is a great contrast. Furthermore I loved this special formed dress. I used to have a similar one for my barbie when I was younger.
Anne Valérie Hash:Is there somebody who's getting married soon? Then chose this white dress.I can visually imagine a bride wearing it at her secret garden wedding, awww...

Alexis Mabille: Feminine, cute, elegant - I think these adjectives describe Mabille's collection best. It wasn't my favorite but I definately liked it and would wear the clothes.

Alexander Vauthier:Sharp shoulders and statement collars in black - that's how Vauthier sees us in spring. Except the shoulder pads not bad thinking at all. Between the footwear (1st/last) is to die for.

Well then I told you what I think. It's your turn: Which collections did you like and which not? Was Paris Couture 2009 a miss or rather a miss?

See you soon

SAG Awards 2009

Teri Hatcher - Rosario Dawson - Taraji P. Henson - Anne Hathaway
Angelina Jolie - Mindy Kaling - Kate Winslet - Freida Pinto
Claire Danes - Eva Longoria - Marisa Tomei

America Ferrera - Katie Holmes - Marcia Cross - Tina Fey

Christina Applegate - Jenna Fischer - Evan Rachel Wood - Emily Blunt

What? 15th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards
When? Saturday, 25th January 2009
Where? Shrine Auditorium L.A.
Who? Stars and starlets from the showbiz'

After clearing the main facts of the SAG Awards above now to the most interesting questions: Who was best dressed and who worst? If there was an award for 'Best Look' I'd split it in two: Anne Hathaway would get one half for making a discreet but chic statement in her white Azzaro gown and Freida Pinto the other one. No wonder that I loved her angelic dress which looked breathtaking to her dark teint -it's Marchesa! Katie Holmes would get definately the one for worst dressed of the entire evening. Besides the aweful color of her Jil Sander dress it looked fairly deformed and boring on her. Her look was absolutely unfitting for the occasion in my opinion. Did she wear even a bra? Doesn't seem so.
What do you think of Katie's dress and the looks in general? Any favorites?

Awaiting your comments.

So long

Plaid Outerwear

1.) How the celebs wore it:

2.) How it was presented at the Fall '08 RTW shows:
Plaid is not really something new but beside the classy lumberjack chemises there's also great outerwear in various colors and shapes. At the Fall 2008 RTW Shows many designers showed how interesting a coat or jacket with a plaid pattern could be.

Since I saw Alexa Chung wearing a tartan coat a few months ago I want one like hers. Unexpectedly I spotted a similar one like Alexa's at Zara when I visited my sister last time in Hannover. It was even on sale so I was very glad but when I tried it on it was ( of course) too big and strangely cut.

I think plaid coats make an awesome alternative to unicolored ones if they aren't that bright (as seen on Rihanna). Anyway I prefer a simple grey or black coat because it goes with everything and looks always good.

Now here's the turn: I saw another one which would be perfect for the transition period. I'm still thinking about getting it. Actually it's a bit too big but it has anyway a very wide cut. Still unsure and hope it will be on sale soon since this would make my decision a lot easier ☺.
Here in Germany you can't have enough coats. Last week we had snow and -8°C...!

Should I get it? And what do you think in general about plaid coats?

P.S. Thanks for your advices about getting the patent shopper or not. I did not - even if I love it and still think about it - because it was so huge that it looked already absurd. That's the con of pics: You can never say how big the bag really is in reality!

Have a nice weekend
