Moschino Spring 2012

I feel like I have travel to many faraway places this Fashion Week. On Friday the Moschino Spring 2012 collection took me to Mexico.

Models stormed the runway wearing matador-inspired embellished and embroidered boleros which were paired with toreador hats and leggings.

There were a lot of other fun pieces which were Mexican-inspired like the fringed ponchos, peasant dresses, sexy ruffled dresses and Frida-inspired headpieces.

On a colour palette of gold, black, yellow and beige, we saw ultra-short embellished dresses, smock tops, floral print peasant skirts and embroidered shorts.

Apart from the toreador hats, other key accessories included ankle-wrap wedges, crucifixes, cat-eye sunglasses, gold hooped earrings, beaded clutches, woven clutches and fringed bags.

The models without the fascinators or the toreador hats sported Frida-inspired braided hairstyles.

I love the mixture of high-impact pieces with romantic dresses and drop-waist gowns.

Favourites: Yellow ruffled dress and printed blouse paired with sunflower skirt

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Anna Dello Russo, Fan Bing Bing and Zoe Saldana

Britney Spears In Moschino – 2011 MTV Video Music Awards

“It’s Britney B*tch” Award
Britney Spears was the subject of tonight’s big tribute performance at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards which was held at the Nokia Theatre.

For her big night she opted to wear a black sequinned Moschino romper with a chevron print and low slung belt.

The look is typically short without much to get excited about.

She looks super uncomfortable (as always) to be on the red carpet.

Despite what Britney thinks, her legs are not her best feature so making them look even more stumpy with these Gina peep-toe calf boots was a big mistake.

For once I will give her kudos for her hair and makeup which are flawless.

It’s a shame the good work was undone by her poor shoe choice.

Zooey Deschanel In Moschino – “Our Idiot Brother” LA Premiere

The LA Premiere for “Our Idiot Brother” took place at the ArcLight Cinemas with Zooey Deschanel wearing a monochromatic look on the red carpet.

She boldly wore a Moschino two-tone dress from the Fall 2011 collection.

Her Moschino dress has a large oversized collar and ruffled detail at the waist.

According Net-A-Porter.com the collar is detachable, so kudos to Zooey for not taking the easy option.

Zooey’s typically quirky look was paired with black suede YSL Trib Too’s and a black clutch.

I love how she styled her hair into a wavy side swept bun.

Anna Dello Russo’s White Night @ Cannes Film Festival

We’ve seen Anna Dello Russo’s eccentric phase, she’s also had a fruit hat wearing phase, then a masculine phase; is a white phase next?

That looks to be the case, as the Vogue Nippon editor arrived at two events during the 2011 Cannes Film Festival last night wearing two white gowns.

The first was an Alberta Ferretti bridal-esqe gown with asymmetrical origami pleats and a full ruffled tiered silk tulle skirt which was custom-made for Anna.

She wore this to “The Tree Of Life” Premiere with a gold wheat, white rose accented fascinator with a black veil.

Later that same evening, Anna attended the “Fashion For Relief Japan Appeal 2011” wearing yet another custom-made dress.

This crepe dress with white camellia detail at the waist and draping on the hips was especially designed by Moschino.

The first gown reminds me a lot of the Alberta Ferretti gown Winona Ryder wore to the 2011 SAG Awards.

This gown is too bridal for my taste, plus her jewels are too much for such a delicate gown.

I much prefer the styling of the Moschino look.

Which do you prefer?

Moschino Fall 2011

The Moschino Fall 2011 collection was styled by Anna Dello Russo who was seated in the front row at the show this morning.

Usually Anna dresses in elaborate colourful looks, but when she’s working she dressed demure (for her) and opts out of wearing exuberant hats.

That honour went to Hanne Gaby Odiele who wore a cardboard cut out rose hat and Coco Rocha of course was handed the chicken hat.

Only Coco Rocha can work a chicken hat on the runway and make us think….hmmm “that’s a good look.”

The collection was typically Moschino fun yet still has a lot of authority, which is why Michelle Obama is such a huge fan.

The models walked the runway wearing menswear inspired looks with officer hats, replacing the cowboy hats of last season plus cummerbunds in various colours wrapped around the waist.

The playfulness continued as the lining of some of the menswear looks which was floral and keeping in tune with the theme of the collection.

Apart from the menswear inspired black and gold lame looks which dominated this collection, we also saw palazzo pants, classic skirt suits, satin dresses, floral mini dresses, dresses with ruffled peplum.

Key accessories included cat-eye glasses, clutches, bags and open-toe lace-up booties and gold jewelery.

Favourites: Floral print dress with ruffled neckline and peplum plus gold lame shirt and palazzo pants paired with navy sweater

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Anna Dello Russo, Katy Perry, Leighton Meester, AnnaLynne McCord, Fan Bing Bing, Diane Keaton, Zoe Saldana, Diane Kruger and Sophia Bush
