Jean Paul Gaultier

So it was all “montagnard” inspired (going back to the mountains) with more wintery colours and some classic element like the “chemise canadienne” but reinvented in a “robe du soir”. As always Jean Paul does amazing striking looks.

But what really loved in his collection, was the colour palette. There were beautiful prints, very ethereal light forest inspired with very autumnal colours and this awesome silver tree print at the end that was just so special. The colours worked especially well on the redheaded girls.

His shows are always so much fun and full of humour, and with a little 80’s vibe thrown in (those sheer tights were so 80’s!). I also love that he allows each girl to be herself and express herself and he does not have a bunch all the same models. Each model is beautiful in her own unique way, that is what love about Gaultier. It’s about personality and being yourself.

He is having so much fun this what it is all about!

I also loved the make up, I particularly enjoyed those incredible dark glossy burgundy red lips! With this warm eyeshadow to warm up the whole face. I loved the crinkled “gauffré” hair on some the girl !!!! I love the whole look so much I might even recreate some of it on my self! Who knows…Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 06.47.44 Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 06.51.14Photos from Vogue Runway.com

Jean Paul Gaultier

Jean Paul Gaulthier has done it again! All inspired on Le Palace a famous club house, it has a bit of the 80’s vibe the girls look so cool, it genuinely looks like its a fun night! I love that all the girls can have their own look, and be individual, some are even holding a drink and some smoking and one is even bare foot holding her heels… I mean it’s wild night and we want to be part of it!

But don’t you worry Carnaval is about to start here in Brazil and I will enjoy it fully and taking lots of inspirations.

dreaming on Couture and New York reality

08-fall-2015-couture-street-style-10

So Couture is in full swing, and aside for what’s it is currently known (amazing craftsmanship, amazing clothes…) it is the collections I like the most as it makes you dream. It allows you to conjure up a look, and even some elements are transpositional into your own wardrobe. See here this model (and absolutely gorgeous girl!) she stands out not of what she’s wearing but before of her strong make up. Her face stands out because of her defined red lips, and her beautifully drawn eyebrows. What she is wearing isn’t that important, it’s what she exudes and that’s what makes her stand out. She stand strong and confident.

What I am learning here since I am in New York and with the knowledge of my wonderful cousin here is that make up can be such a powerful tool. She know so much that I don’t on applying make up and what it can do to transform you. We are having so much fun together on our make up tutorials and sharing our make up routine. She also gave me SO much make up and I will soon (after my New York moving, long story..) share it with you guys.

I am enjoying so much New York, I feel now that I am a little more settled into a New York state of living (although not with the flat situation but now it’s all resolving itself thanks god!!) I am going away this weekend to Chester, and will also definitely share this experience with you. In a few weekends I will also go to the Hampton’s, so excited about that too!

So going back to couture, I have selected a few looks that I love..

_ARM0145 _ARM0655-1

Armani Fall Couture 2015, Love those feathers.. (kind of have an obsession with feathers… probably steaming from my love of old hollywood and glamour…)

Maison Margiela2 Maison Margiela5 Maison Margiela6 Maison Margiela4Galiano for Maison Margiela Fall Couture 2015, weirdly I am not such a fan of Galiano, but I like this show, I especially love the coat in the brown (potatoes or coffee sack?) fabric all embroidered, it’s such a beautiful contrast. And I kind of like the craziness of that bridal dress from a duvet?_MAR0661

Alexandre Vauthier  Alexandre Vauthier Couture Fall 2015 

Some of you know, I have an obsession with Lindsey Wixson, it all started when someone told me I looked a bit like her (biggest compliment, made my day!) and since I can’t help it to look at the shows and marvel at her beauty and quirkiness, and try and hope I can steal an ounce of her beauty….Alexandre Vauthier2This look here is so simple but wearing that maxi statement earring makes the look stand out, that’s something we can do without buying out of this world expensive couture. Alexandre Vauthier3

Jean Paul Gaultier Fall Couture 2015,his shows always fascinates me and I love that they always have a strong identity and personality with humour.

So this show is all about my natal land, Brittany, where the stripped top, the “Breton” top originated. I love too many thing to say it all here, but the hats that we call “coiffe” are amazing!! They make the girls so majestic and elegant, it almost transform into something with an oriental vibe non? All the gold details and sheer elements makes all those “breton” elements wearable and so modern.

61 facons de dire Oui

61 facons de dire Oui! Or in English 61 ways to say Yes, a bridal with a twist, or how to feel special each day dressing up and having fun. Jean Paul shows are always light fun and full of life and makes you laugh. With him you can be yourself and embrace life with a big smile, and this show was no different. I mean look at Naomi she looks so good as the bouquet! So genius and so Gaultier!

My dearest Jean Paul, I so love him, and it is the end of an era, no more pret-a-porter… At least we still have Haute Couture. So for his farewell he was at the rex, (my favourite club back in the days!) and he did some kind of greatest hits, beauty pageant, hommage to editors, (you will Grace and Suzie of course..) and his classic smoking mixing women and men so well, so sad, but now need to seriously invest in this last pret a porter collection, it’s pieces for posterity.. Love him!
