Yesterday was the Chanel SS09 Couture show, and ofcourse Karl never disappoint us (or me at least). Every time I look at the collection I think, he is repeating himself, the famous Chanel suit, the black and white contrasts , the pastel colors, the Camellia's and so on, but every time I look at the details and see the collection again and again,I realize how much I Love it!

The more I see the details, the little details,I love it more, and this happens all the time! for every collection! :) first look I think...mmm.. its nice, but then I compleletly change my mind! :)

Maybe I like Chanel because , I'm a person who likes original, classical yet timeless designs, and ofcourse Chanel is a big example about this. I like the fact that sometimes people say about my designs "oh its very Chanel..."

Anyway, I liked the fact that this collection was all white, almost.
As Sarah Mower from put it: Karl said he'd cleared everything away and "started with a clean sheet of paper." For more about the show and pictures please click here.

Alexandra Tomlinson almost fell on the runway, and a member of the front row helped her up.

As the shows takes place now, The Sartorialist is back to work! Not that he is only active during the fashion weeks, but usually there are more pics during fashion weeks.

The Sartorialist is one of my favorite blogs, he basically takes pics for stylish people all over the world, whenever he is traveling, and I also love The Sartorialist's section on GQ.

The Blog has a collection of great pics from Paris, Milan, London to Rio and Moscow.
I find such pics so great, because you never know what to expect from people, some shocking, weired yet fantastic styles!

The Sartorialist Just announced that he is now working on a book that will be published in September of this year that will have around 500 pages of images.
I can not wait to have my own copy, Congrats Mr. Scott! :)

I'm personaly looking forward for the Paris Haute Couture SS09 shows (Jan 26th-29th '09). I cant wait to see what Karl Lagerfeld & Chanel has in store for us this season! :) will update about that in a week (btw, this time the show will not be at the Grand Palais!).

PARIS... Je t'aime!

This post is dedicated to my favorite city in the world, Paris!
Since I am a Fashion/style-holic, Paris has always been the place to be, the place where fashion dreams can come true. I've always dreamt of visiting this magical city, and last July I had the luck and great chance to visit this city.

All the time before I got there, I felt, this can not be true, is it real? am I really going to Paris? that easy? as simple as that? because for so long going there was almost... Not impossible, but very very out of reach. And I was at the Airport in Pisa Italy, waiting for boarding, and looking at all the people around me thinking, "how can they be so cool" and I am very close to jump over the seats from excitement! :P

well anyway I arrived at around noon, and headed directly to my friends house where I was going to stay, didnt see the Eiffel tower on the way, I got there, fell asleep at around 5, thinking, what am I doing sleeping in Paris, I got up, got dressed and went out directly! :)
I got the Bir Hakim ( Tour Eiffel) station, and I was walking towards the tower, and there it was, La Tour Eiffel! I was over the moon happy! and for a second I told my friend " we are in Paris , do you understand what this means" :D
and I stayed out, roamind the streets till 2 am that night! it was an out of this world feeling.

Well, The reason why I love Paris because its home of Coco Chanel, YSL, Christian Dior, Lacroix, and many many others. Reading magazines ever since I was a kid, and reading about "Paris Fashion week" made everything I love, associated to Paris. And that's how the love affair started! :)

When I was there, I passed by the Grand Palais , where Chanel have their Fashion shows, One Chanel show made the Grand Palais famous for me, was their SS 06 Haute Couture collection, with the amazing staircase in the middle, the show was magical.

So I looked inside the window and looked at the exact space where Chanel models, Chanel creations and the Master mind himself, Karl Lagerfeld walked, the place I've always only seen in magazines and on the web. That was fantastic!

Late 2007, I had ran into Giambattista Valli in Amman, Jordan (what are the chances? I KNOW!) I went over , introduced myself and talked to him for a while( it was weired, talking to him so cool!) and he gave me his email& the studio phone no. and said "whenever you are in Paris, let me know, try to make it in January, during the fashion week" and I was like thats FANTASTIC! :D so I call them later to tell them that I'll be coming to Paris during the summer and they were very nice and suggessted I got see them , the design studio , the workshop, and I was hoping to land me an intership there, now that would have been ... simply unreal! but unfortunatly, I couldnt make it, I tried to call several times, Mr. Valli was travelling for meetings , and they were off the whole month of August.

I also wanted to visit Chanel's famous workshops at the Rue Cambon, and maybe send a message to Chanel's Studio Manager Virginie Viard, telling her how much I'm in love with Chanel and maybe take me for a tour, sounds a bit crazy, no? :P but anyway I didnt, but I'm still hoping for Next time! :D

I know it is so hard to find a job in Paris, esp. in the Fashion field, BUT I'm still hoping that one day I will travel to Paris and work there, and make this dream come true!

I will be obssessing more about Chanel later on, and talk about a documentary for the brand called Signé Chanel.

Bride Wars

Yesterday I went to see the new Comdy, Bride Wars, and I LOVED it!
Its a light Movie about two in separable girlfriends, who's been planning for their perfect wedding since they were kids.

20 years later, they face the problem of having someone book their wedding dates on the same Date and Venue, and how this turns into a war, literally! :)
Its from the directors of The Devil Wears Prada, an all time favorite movie as well.

Anyhow, I also Loved Kate Hudson's wedding dress! not just LOVED it, im even obssessing a little bit about it! :P well the dress is by Vera Wang, from her Spring 2007 Collection with few changes that included different fabric for the bodice and more layers of tulle.
Well Anne Hathaway's dress was also from a previous collection by Vera Wang as well.

Those were the only pics I found for the dress from the Movie and from the Runway.

let me know what you think!
