Drama is an understatement when it comes to the Dolce & Gabbana A/W 2009 show at Milan Fashion Week. The collection featured lots and lots of shoulders (yes they are back!), all kinds of fur, ruffles, tuxedos and even a ballgown with Marilyn Monroe photo prints. While black and white dominated the luxe collection of belted dresses and coats, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana added in a pop of color with a few pieces and accessories in hot pink, blue and red. My favorites are the red corseted dress, the ruffled dresses and those gigantic suede platform wedges (how can you not love them?!) What about you ladies?

Estée Lauder‘s new summer collection, Vivid Garden, is so girly and pretty!


Drawing inspiration from the lively bright shades of a fully blooming summer garden and the delectable treats of an afternoon tea, Estée Lauder introduces Vivid Garden – a fairytale-like limited edition color collection for summer 2009. With pops of floral bright colors for a look of youthful vibrancy, graphic elements and shades of teal, lime, and aquamarine complement vivid pinks and playful purples for eyes, while cheeks blush with a luminous sheer glow and lips tantalize with saturated pigments in creamy textures and sheer glazes.

At , designers Dean and Dan Caten gave us a glam grunge/rock ‘n roll collection that is obviously targeted towards the young. Pieces included plaid shirts, preppy button-down shirts, slouchy cargo pants, miniskirts, boyfriend blazers, leather jackets and more. Plus models even strutted down the runway with huge shades, knit caps, a Starbucks coffee in hand, leather bags which are all so typical of what we see among the young Hollywood stars nowadays. Loves it!
