"Elegance is the balance between proportion, emotion and surprise" Valentino

Saturday, February 12, 2011


As I've said previously, during fashion weeks the real show takes place off the runways.

I know it's so easy to criticize being comfortably at home in front of your pc, but looking at certain pics I could't help but wonder what happened to a couple of once upon a time stylish girls.

The strange case of Mary-Kate Olsen: she keeps dressing like an Upper East Side witch. She should wear more from The Row or, at least, gets rid of that impossible fur.

Gaia Repossi: she used to be more inspired. First totally boring in a white suit at the amfAR Gala and then missing it in a curious Céline total-look front row at Altuzarra. The idea of large shirt- large trousers could be tempting, but somehow here it looks just wrong.

The Clarins' sister, a French version of Paris and Nicky Hilton. All of them heiress, all too blonde and too tanned, with an awful taste for clothes (okay, Nicky isn't so bad). If Virginie managed to look acceptable, Claire's passion for trousers with psychedelic prints makes her looking like a bad imitation of Willow Smith.

Last but not least, I would like to remind to Julian Restoin Roitfeld that with such a dress there's no need to show off your cute leg like a Crazy Horse dancer. Elisa Sednaoui could give her a lesson of red carpet pose (similar dress, very different effect).
