Reem Acra Spring 2010 Ready-to-Wear

Oui, je suis prêt à porter. I couldn't keep my eyes off this dress. I'm a stickler for the powerful woman look but isn't this the cutest thing you've ever seen?

Talk Amongst Yourselves

"A Sudanese woman was found guilty of indecency and fined for wearing trousers in a case that has attracted worldwide attention, but she will be spared lashes, an official who attended the trial said. The woman was arrested at a party in July with 12 other women and had faced the possibility of 40 lashes for wearing trousers, deemed indecent." - Financial Times, September 2009

On another note, here are some Spring 2010 looks that appeared on the runway this week. One of my favorite designers, Donna Karan, used mainly beige colors this season with a pop of red right in the middle of the show. As for fabrics they seemed light and movable making her vision of an "atmospheric expression of a wind blowing" come across.

The woman she's dressing is one with a "breeze and ease but strong and sophisticated."

Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton

Two thumbs up! This is a documentary I only recently discovered. I can now say, Marc Jacobs is my idol. He's a genius, which he repeatedly denies. To some, his work may seem scrambled, while those in tune understand the schematic of the genius. There's nothing short of inspiration here.

Chanel Iman

Any person named after a designer and supermodel, is bound to find themselves caught up in fashion. Fortunately, Chanel Iman, welcomed the destiny that her name has given her. She's the face you've seen gracing the covers of magazines and catwalking on runways models would want to be on.
Wondering what the big deal was, when her name was mentioned why there would always be an "I love her." following. I wondered no more when I literally ran into her during fashion week. I, myself, got caught in the trance. Chanel's not just a model but that 19 year old with youth & vitality.
Let's face it when Vogue's right, they're right. Chanel Iman is one of the "World's Top Models."
