Edition by Georges Chakra Fall 2010

I always look forward to Georges Chakra’s presentation during Fashion Week, as I expect many red carpet looks.

On this occasion the looks weren’t as dramatic as usual. It wasn’t until half way through the collection that I saw a single embellishment or sequin. So is Chakra toning down the drama?

No, because the last few gowns really had a lot of wow factor.

From the blood red gowns with thigh-high splits to the shimmering silver gowns with stunning star details cut into the back, high-end red carpet glamour is still Chakra’s focus.

I loved the back-to-front tuxedo dress, which was more sophisticated than the one Celine Dion wore the 1999 Oscars.

I’m not sure if it was because it was a Fall collection, but I was baffled by the tights paired with the thigh-high split gowns.

It wasn’t all about gowns. Cocktail dress, off-the-shoulder tops, lace pant suits and day dresses were presented in this collection.

2010 SAG Awards – Dianna Agron In Edition by Georges Chakra

Nice Dress, Shame About The Lipstick Award
“Glee” actress Dianna Agron looked so cute on the red carpet giving us old Hollywood glamour wearing a white (the colour of the night) Edition by Georges Chakra Spring 2010 gown.

The strapless draped gown with silver stone embellished trimmings was an interesting choice, but she completely throws me off the look with the deep berry lip shade.

It kinda feels too dark for such a light coloured gown.

Anyone agree?

Queen Latifah Hosts The 2010 People’s Choice Awards Wearing Edition by Georges Chakra

When it was announced that Queen Latifah would be hosting the People’s Choice Awards for the second year running I was very excited to see what she was going to wear.

She makes great choices like this stunning angelic Edition by Georges Chakra Spring 2010 gown.

The white strapless crepe gown with chiffon draped gathering at front was accented with a gold and silver crystal striped waistband.

Gold accessories perfect this look.

Unfortunately I was only excited about the Chakra look. Her other two looks were a bit bland by her standards.

The one shoulder dress with the Valentino bow front black heels was a cute look, but a host is meant to dazzle and neither of these looks do that.

Editions by Georges Chakra Spring 2010



Renowned couturier Georges Chakra presented his “Edition by Georges Chakra” Spring 2010 collection at New York Fashion Week, which was his second showing in the tents.

His 46 evening looks will have celebrity fans such as Carrie Underwood and Kellie Pickler gasping with delight at the many red carpet ready possibilities on display.

Colourful gown after gown was embellished with bedazzling jeweled necklines, tiers, pleating and wrap around silver belts tied with a coloured ribbon which either matched or was a contrasted to the dress.

The cocktail dresses and gowns had varying silhouettes from flowing gowns which glided gown the runway, to fitted dresses which would accentuate a tiny waist.

The Real Housewives of New York’s Jill Zarin was in the front row. I was baffled at how many times I saw these reality women in the front row.

Where is Sophia Bush when you need her?

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.
