Best of the Runway: S/S 17

It’s safe to say that next Spring is very… very, far away. But in the world of fashion – we are already preparing! Per usual, warmer weather brings out flawless whites, lace, and vibrant reds. The ongoing trend here is just that, and a classic, mature, (covered) look. Less crop tops and more elegance – it wouldn’t be  a new season of runway without a total change in trend! I know you’re probably (definitely) not thinking this far ahead, but, we must stay up to date with the world of high fashion! Who says you really can’t wear white after labor day?

Met Gala 2015…

The Met Gala calls for big, elegant, timeless classic gowns. This years was China themed. It’s one of my favourite red carpet events because of the beautiful classic sophisticated looks. The chances of you seeing Miley Cyrus half naked with a blunt in her hand are just extremely unlikely (this, is a good thing my friends). I’m all about tastefulness and so is this night. Here are some of my favourite looks from the carpet that you’ll definitely want to see…

There were a lot of great dresses at the Met Gala this year, but these are the ones that I thought were not only beautiful, but embraced the classic Met Gala red carpet look and class!
