1. Getting more out of the trench coat, as this can be worn everywhere...office, going out, travel.

I find most pants or jeans have that standard, medium width loop. This doesn't always work well with skinny belts because they don't' fill up all the space and end up sitting too low with a big gap unfilled on your pants. Solution? More designers should make pants with shorter width loops such as Nicolas Ghesquiere for Balenciaga.

The cool people at Iron Army have introduced a new pair of what I would call the 21st century overall pant with straight/skinny leg. Instead of the tacky high patch that regular overalls have, this pair has a smaller patch which is much lower and aesthetically pleasing. Also, this allows for your top to be seen much, much better. Then, they have adopted the skinny fever of suspenders that has been going for a while and attached them in denim to the patch. Result: unwanted classic turned into a hot new denim item.

I am a very big contrast person, so you've guessed that I was in pure joy when I saw these two editorials. Also, rich, vibrant and playful color is much needed since I haven't seen this much intense color for some time. There has been lots of green these couple of last seasons and change is more than welcomed.
Therefore, how about some lemon yellow from Jil Sander? It is such a refreshing color and makes any metallics look wearable for daytime. Perhaps Medici dark red courtesy of Miu Miu? And no, red does not only look best with black and white. How about marine blue? The combinations are endless. What gets attention is playing with non-traditional and new colors. I hope you enjoy it.
We all know that Elbaz is a genious. Season after season, he presents us something new, utterly chic and quite memorable. In this case, how could I ever forget his pvc charged collection for spring?? I absolutely loved it, and this was reconfirmed when I saw the lovely Caroline wearing one of his trench coats. Everything from the make up to how the hair slighly is blown and her soft-core yet very strong stare, makes me excited for the season. I enjoyed many of the collections in the fall, and looking forward to wonderful and inspiring editorials during this new season.

I have been waiting for quite some time new material from Ms.Rhoda. Hilary is magical and captures your attention with that brunettes-only stare. Her dark features and little thicker than average eyebrows brings a much needed personality among today's alien/kiddy looking models. She reminds me of the early to mid 90's craze about girls looking healthy, energetic and American. Although, I would not classify her beauty as purely American, she definitely embodies that spirit.
Note to editors: Hire Hilary more and all those complaints about anorexic models might stop.

This is what happens to beautiful clothes when bad lighting is applied. To me, this just looks weird. Look at that light on her arms and most importantly the dress...can you really see the dress? Yes, maybe?? If one has not seen it on the runway, then determining how it actually looks might be hard. I am totally understanding the entire romanticism idea behind this, but has it gone little too far. Too bright...and it looks as a June or July issue instead of January and introduction to the new collections. Oh, the beauty of it...
