Blogosphere: Introducing mode d'amour

I did a little interview with the lovely Annemiek from mode d'amour. She has a great sense of style which is in my opinion getting better and better everyday so you should check out her blog. Here's just a little sneak peak of her looks for those who don't know her yet.

London FW: Christopher Bailley's guests

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Yesterday London's 25th FW ended with the show of Burberry Prorsum and when Christopher Bailey is calling, the stars are always in a hurry. Ok I think I'd beat them but that's not the issue right now so let's talk about their clothes. I wrote a little comment for each lady:

Emma looked just breathtaking. With every pic of her I'm loving her more and more. The dress
and the shoes (of course both from the presented collection) were made for her plus her
hair and make up was spot-on. Emma, you're my favorite!

Frida's dress was also fairly nice but a little boring. The color looked though great with her skin and her face was shiny as always. She always seems so nice and honest to me. On top she did an amazing job in 'Slumdog Millionaire'.

Alexa is one of my personal fashion icons of the 21st century but I've to admit that this trench+dark dress combination is starting to get a little unspectacular even if it looks always great. Anyway the black booties are awesome.

Agyness - I just want her to get back to her blonde pixie, it's her trademark and looked so good on her. Is it just me or did she also dress better before?! Well I think her grey jacket and the shoes are very cool but I hate the rest especially this trashy bag.

Mary-Kate - There's not much to say about her look. Actually it's nothing special but I like it anway and her Burberry boots...I want them so bad. She should do her hair more often like this it's cute.

Posh - I'm neither a lover nor a hater but she looks always the same. Of course her look is timelessly chic and classy but after seeing it in similar ways about 100 times it's starting to get annoying. And then I also wonder how she walks on these heels...

She showed everybody how to make a real statement on the red carpet. You've guessed it of course I'm talking about our beloved "off-screen Queen B." Leighton Meester in her white Bottega Veneta gown and gold Cathy Waterman jewels.

Didn't see many shows yet but if every collection is like Phillip Lim's I'm sure New York Fashionweek is an entire hit. Chapeau Mister Lim!

P.S. Tuesday was my birthday. The sequin blazer would be a great belated present so don't
hesitate ☺
