Trend Report: Fall Luxe Gold

After seeing all of the luxurious fur that was on the Fall runways, we only had to expect that more luxe was to come.  In slight relation to all of the beige that popped out on the runway, gold has also been making its own bold statement, and mainly in metallic fabrics.  (Metallic fabrics were also big this past spring and will continue through the 2011 resort trends).  However, gold is just happening everywhere from designers, Jason Wu, Diane von Furstenberg, Dries Van Noten, Marco Zanini for Rochas, Michael Kors, Alexander McQueen, Peter Som, Christopher Decarnin for Balmain, and more.  Other designers added gold accessories into the mix, which is perfect for those unwilling to whip out a pair of shocking gold pants, or a metallic gold dress.  But, there were also some minimal takes on the gold approach as well.  Check out some of the designs below!

Christopher Decarnin for Balmain reigned supreme for gold, it was everywhere in his collection, fabulous!

Fashion Updates!!

Kardashian Sisters launching another fashion line!
Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney have teamed up with Australian designer Bruno Shiavi's Jupi Corp. to design a line of clothes, accessories, lingerie, swimwear, and shoes.  Kim said, "We obviously waited on a big partnership like this for a long time because we've had so many different offers and we wanted to make sure that we had a huge say in the design and that our personalities would come through."  The line will debut sometime in 2011 and be sold in 17 different countries.  The line is supposed to be flattering of all body types because, as Khloe says, they all have different body shapes, "I am tall, Kim is curvy, and Kourtney is petite."  So watch out for this new line!

Check out this behind the scenes video of the stunning (and pregnant!) Miranda Kerr's Vogue Italia Vision of Femininity photo shoot for the September 2010 issue.  Here are some final photos as well.

Fashion Updates!!

Lindsay Lohan's purse line is due out this October.  The purses come under her 6126 (idol Marilyn Monroe's birthday) clothing line, which is also due for an exceptional (from what I've seen so far) comeback.  Her purses range from $265-$595, but she will also be releasing a lower-end line of bags from her 7286 (Lohan's birthday) line where prices will be a more affordable range from $60-$170.

6126 Handbags
The Gaynor- as in Mitzi Gaynor.  Check out the gold sequined lining!

Trend Report: Bandeau Top

A bandeau bra is the newest "top".  After exposed lingerie was on all of the Fall 2010 runways, the bandeau top was bound to come our way.  Bandeaus are just simple straight across bras with no straps or underwires.  It looks best paired with a jacket, under a loose tank, with a high-waisted skirt or pants, underneath a low-cut dress or any type of sheer top.
