Here are some great looks for this autumn. Nothing gets us in the mood for a new season then new fashions. And the Fall 2012 season puts us in a very good mood indeed. It appears that tight pants, boots, and loose tops are all the rage. I guess that means the horsey riding look is back with a vengence. Also the very floral dress is back to warm the chilly days, like this dress by Valentino.
And let's not forget the vintage prom dress is all the thing for evening and grand social events.I never thought I'd see a resurgance of this classic 40s and 50s look again. But here it is in all it's glory as lovely as ever. Shades of Grace Kelley dance in my head as I see these long full gowns swirling about the showrooms.
Only the french could whip up something this ornate and lovely. A vintage looking bodice gown that is a throw back to the court if the Sun King, LouisVIIII. Visions of dancing at Versailles came to mind when I saw this. Still, it is fench couture at it's finest!
VIDAL SASSOON (1928–2012)
Vidal Sassoon, the legendary hairstylist whose "wash-and-wear" cuts revolutionized women's hair care and fashion in the 1960s, died Wednesday at 84. With his geometric creations—most notably the "five-point cut"—the British-born Sassoon liberated women from the tyranny of bedtime rollers and towering beehives piled high with spray. "My idea was to cut shape into the hair, to use it like fabric and take away everything that was superfluous," Sassoon told the Los Angeles Times in 1993. "Women were going back to work, they were assuming their own power. They didn't have time to sit under the dryer anymore." He eventually expanded his empire to include salons and an eponymous product line in the United States with the famous slogan, "If you don't look good, we don't look good."
