“Well, did I call it, or did I call it? Ah… yeah I did!” Check out my Oscar prediction post: “Iron Lady”
Congratulations to Meryl Streep, I can see why she won for Best Actress. Her speech was witty, emotional, and gracious. I cannot say I loved her dress, but who I am to say anything to a three-time Oscar winner. She may have had her own prediction by dressing in Oscar gold.
What I really liked about Streep’s win is that even after seventeen nominations, she was sincere with emotion. We all work so hard at everything we do, and in most cases our effort is overlook, so when we’re applauded for our tenacity it feels so deserving.
Here are some of my favourite “winning” looks during New York Fashion Week, Fall 2012. What I love about each of my fashion favourites is that their style is effortless. The clothing of each street-styleista is simple and achievable, but attitude and confidence is centre stage.
NYFW is all about having a good time, and wonderment of the latest collections, however crowd watching is also fun. Today was no exception. A horribly styled NY housewife, Alex McCord, was front row at Venexiana by Kati Stern; bonus, collection was amazing. When we edit the runway footage and backstage interview you will see why this designer is the show!
Then, Falguni and Shane Peacock gave us front row drool,Paul Johnson Calderon from canceled television show,”High Society,” the party did not end there as RCA executive gave us an exclusive interview with his new dance artist. Look out for that up-coming story.
Off to back stage madness–Ashanti. Elbowing back stage is always happening for a designer interview, but throw in a celebrity, and things get wild. I couldn’t get close enough to interview the R&B diva, but I grabbed some shots.
I must apologize for my sparse postings, but I have been very busy getting ready for Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week, booking shows and organizing production have left me a bit behind on my blog duties. I am ready for my exciting week, so join me for live tweet casting, street style, and interviews behind the scene during Fashion Week.
Thinking about up-coming trends, 70’s comes to mind. Spring was all about retro 70’s vibe, but a bit too literal. I took a look at some classic Jackie O shots from the 70’s, for style inspiration, I can’t wait to wear my Jackie inspired look. Style.com had great pre-fall preview collections for 2012, Alice+Olivia was one great example with sleek lady-like retro clothes.
The 70’s trend seems to be here to stay and it looks like designers raided Rachel Zoe’s closet, we all know she is the 70’s Boho queen.
