Glam Damn It
Today's motto is that if you tie a shiny (yet slightly grimey) leather belt around anything - black, white or brown - in your wardrobe, you'd fit right into Aqauscutum's Fall 2010 look.
The great news is that Aqauscutum is Jourdan Dunn's post-baby runway debut - which, in the modeling world, should have happened about two weeks after delivery - although she looks a bit more old mature, and ready to be a talk show host. Tyra Banks, is that you?
All in all, Aquascutum showed classic British looks, with silver pointed flats in tow. Many are calling the oversized silhouettes the modern tradition of Aquascutum - disguising its loose-fitting garments with words like "sensible English Outdoorwear."
But, I beg to differ. At least until the Queen speaks.
When Anja Rubik opens and closes a show, does anyone remember the clothing in between?
You would if you were an avid fan of stellar outerwear paired with lingerie-inspired apparel. But, that's just if you're an avid fan.
PETA definitely has their work cut out for them this season.

When I think of LA, images of divine beauty and glamour come to mind. So, it is only fitting that the city of angels has its own makeup show. The people at the Powder Group and Metropolitan Events must have thought the same as they bring The Makeup Show LA to downtown for the second year. An annual event, the makeup show is a "pro-artist event for everyone in every area of the makeup industry".
Typically, Matthew Williamson is a breath of creative and free-spirited air. His days at Emilio Pucci were ground-breaking, whilst his signature line brought young, fun ideas to fashion week that nobody cared to show. With his recent collaborations and rise in fame, Matthew's Fall 2010 bevy failed to capture the essence of what many have identified him by. Perhaps, that may have been his intentions - to work outside of the box - but, in a time of economical needs and London's history of impressive designers, Matthew's mainstream collection showed as a bit under par. We've put together 5 things we think could have suited the designer we once admired.
Audigier is best known for the metallic, bedazzled, and tattoo designed clothes of Ed Hardy, which have become synonymous with the likes of Jon Gosselin, the boys of Jersey Shore, and every other juiced up party boy who thinks that girls go nuts for shirts covered in shiny silver cobras. Now, Audigier has promised a new logo and graphic-free line. Say what?
And when First Lady Michelle Obama dons a McQueen transparent neck-tied blouse to speak to students in England, we suppose that very much seals the deal.
The Gucci Group and PPR recently announced the company's efforts to continue the McQueen label and intentions to show the Fall 2010 bevy [that McQueen completed before his death] next month during Paris Fashion Week.
Georgia born Sean O'pry needs no introduction; his career speaks for itself. Now the second most successful male model in the world, O'pry has been dominating the world of male modeling and doesn’t intend on stopping.
O'pry’s road to success is a testament to the fact that we really are in a digital age where the internet can make or break you. In Sean O'pry’s case, it was Myspace that "made" him after his online pics were discovered by Nolè Marin of Elle Magazine. He was then signed by VNY Model Management in New York City.
P - Prints. Prints. Prints. Well, duh.
R - Remarkable black dresses disappeared into the background, allowing Prova accessories to do all the talking.
O - Only if we had the idea of layering fringe-end scarves with jewelry.
V - Volume and stability. We've never been able to wrap our scarves so well.
A - Absoulutely divine footwear complemented the Prova scarves.
