Sparkle Me Good

It seems that Ginnifer Goodwin wanted to ensure that she wouldn’t be out shined by the diamonds and sparkly jewelry when she attended one of Bulgari’s events, as she chose to attend in a short tiered black Azzaro dress with a jewel encrusted collar, ruffles, and sleeves.  She even slipped into a pair of black peep toe heels with crystal embellishment.  I’m glad she kept her accessories to a minimum to let the dress shine on its own.

The Azzaro dress is now available at AlOthman.

Color in Stormy Weather

Le Cirque, was the theme of Temperley‘s Spring 2010 collection, and as the rain poured outside the ceiling high windows of the magnificent Parisian apartment showroom, it remained bright and fun. With pearl buttons found on collars and vest, black and white bold stripes flowing down a kaftan, or tattoo sleeves on a lace gown, the Temperley girls put together a very entertaining collection to look forward to!

We even took a look at Alice, Temperley‘s new diffusion line. It had great wrap front jumpsuits in bold fuchsia, silky soft cotton vests with pink tigers emblazoned on the front, and easy jersey knotted dresses. It is a younger look of the Temperley brand, and with both Alice and Mary toting their beautiful boys on their hips- we can tell its been a very busy but successful past six months for them.

We continued on to the feminine and frilly showroom of Luisa Beccaria. With the aroma of girlishness and three bright beautiful smiling Italian women greeting us, I always love entering the world of Beccaria. She has been in the press a lot recently with her collaboration with Davidoff, runway show in Dubai, and her designed Citroen; and we can tell why she is so hot- her pieces are simply divine. She created dresses and gown with tucked taffeta folds on the front, flower appliques made of frayed organza, and her signature crimped layers of tulle were all present. Luisa herself was there discussing with us prospects of a very exciting project- will definitely fill you in on it as soon as everything is finalized!

And on my way out of the revolving doors of the Ritz where she was showing I pass Kate Moss trotting in, who is absolutely stunning!

We also went to view the Devi Kroell collection at the Bristol. As soon as I entered I was taken aback by the vibrant colors that filled the space. From brazen teals and daffodil yellows to aubergine purple and lipstick reds, with even a few notes in metallic pewter and platinum; the collection was fresh for the upcoming Summer. I particularly fell mad for her apple print, which as you see below, is an organic multicolored brushed apple with funky appliques added on top.

She even designed these amazing bright colored flat espadrilles in python with ribbon ankle ties that I just cant wait to wear on my beach vacation next year!
