Farah Angsana Fall 2009





Farah Angsana was the first of 3 shows I attended today. It was a 9am start, but I was glad to be awoken by this Fall 2009 collection of stunning pieces.

I expected to see fabulous gowns and couture designs, but I was absolutely blown away by what I saw.

The tailoring and attention to detail was exquisite, from the embroidery to the embellishments, which I really appreciated seeing the show live.

The colour palette consisted of golds, bright reds, purples and silvery blues.

I loved the poncho’s which were embellished with either with feathers or intricate silver embroidery. The collars were also decorated with either feathered or fur.

My pictures of the Swarovski embellished bodices really do not do Farah’s work justice, as they were spectacular. That red gown has to make the red carpet.

I hope Kellie Pickler, who was in the front row, was paying particular attention to the red carpet gowns. Everyone was more breath-taking the last. My favourite was the black, gold and red strapless gown, with a skirt that was inspired by dragon scales.

This was a truly magnificent collection, and I can’t wait to see them on the red carpet.


I will guess the Kellie Pickler has been reading my blog, because the ghostly make-up has disappeared, and today she was looking more like her usual beautiful self.

She wore a stunning navy blue strapless dress, with dual button detailing. She wore her dress with YSL Trib Two’s.

I also attended the Carolina Herrera show (♥♥) and the Carlos Miele show (♥♥) which I will blog about when I get back tonight.

Edition By Georges Chakra Fall 2009



I was lucky enough to attend Georges Chakra’s first RTW presention, and I was instantly struck by how the couturier’s Fall 2009 collection, had a couture feel to it, as the attention to detail was impeccable.

Carrie Underwood’s favourite designer presented plenty of party pieces, ranging from mini dresses, to strapless dress. A grey dress was presented with origami folds was exquisite, as was the strapless white dress, with a silver beaded skirt.

The gowns were also breath-taking, with especially the gold lame pleated gown, which had a magnificent train that billowed as the model walked down the runway. I wouldn’t be surprised if Carrie ticks this as a possible in her look book.

There were lots of liquidly and metallic pieces, which gave the collection a futuristic, space-age feel.


In the front row, I saw Jennifer Love-Hewitt being blinded by the photographers eager to take her picture. She look gorgeous this Valentine’s day, wearing a sexy L’Wren Scott figure hugging dress, which she wore with YSL Trib Two’s.

Kellie Pickler, so far a front row favourite – surprisingly – either needs to fire her make-up person, or hire one immediately and stop doing it herself.

42nd Annual CMA Awards Red Carpet

Taylor Swift, for me, was the Best Dressed at this event. LOVE it, Love it, adore it, want it.

Her sequin and crystal embellished Kaufman Franco gown is just amazing. Much improved from Monday’s Glamour Awards.

I loved the Jil Sander Spring 2009 collection which was full of fringed ensembles draped over stretch bodysuits.

I would not have thought Nicole Kidman would pick something from this collection, but as usual she wears it with both style and grace.

Reese Witherspoon is usually a devotee of Nina Ricci, but last night chose to wear this exquisite Marchsea Spring 2009 asymmetric gown.

The lace cut-out details adds a dramatic effect to the gown, and the bold red lips adds to the overall vampy seductive look.

Kellie Pickler sparkled in an off-the-shoulder silver beaded Zuhair Murad gown with a ruched bodice, which gives her a Jessica Rabbit silhouette. The dress also had a draped back.

Her stunning jewels were from Swarovski.

I am not at all crazy about Carrie Underwood’s yellow Roberto Cavalli gown. I am not sure if it is the colour or the dress itself, but something is not quite right.

The completed her look with a stunning gold Nancy Gonzalez clutch.

Miley Cyrus opted for colour over sparkle, wearing a white Roberto Cavalli halter neck gown with a colourful floral detail on the base of her gown, and black sequin detail on the waist and neckline.

Jewel’s yale blue halter Roberto Cavalli gown was embellished with a single gold detail on the empire waist. I love that she wore her wavy hair back in a loose bun.

She completes her look with multiple bracelets on both her arms and a gold box clutch.

Julianne Hough is perfect pink perfection.

Her gown was by Angel Sanchez and she sparkled with Daniel Swarovski bracelets and clutch.

Miranda Lambert wears many gold necklaces, to bring some life to her plain blue strapless satin gown.

Shania Twain opted for a black mini, with Giuseppe Zanotti floral heels, which are beautiful, but it’s her clutch which stands out for me. ♥

Michelle Branch goes was too casual for this event for my liking.
