Refinery29’s Annie Georgia Greenberg said it perfectly. “Lauren Moffatt’s flirty Spring ’12 line is sweet (but not sugary).”
From the peter pan collared dresses to the sweet one shouldered swimsuit to the scallop edged mini’s, this designer can do no wrong. Fashion photographer Daymion Mardel is always the talent behind the camera along with Miss Moffatt to create her lookbooks, and together the two make magic.

“If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.”
This advice goes hand in hand with the motto “rules are made to be broken.” First reading this badass quote, I think to myself, ‘you rock Katharine Hepburn, I will try to live my life with this attitude as well’.. But wait a second, I (sometimes to my chagrin, lol) can’t help but live by that motto, as any true artist shall. And let’s face it, any truly chic fashion “follower,” will entirely contradict that title, and as a result have all the fun.
Bold move for Vogue to put this young-en on the much anticipated February issue, but damn she looks good! Taylor Swift is clearly a beauty and I doubt she has the physical ability to look anything short of gorgeous, but stylistically speaking, not so sure. However, apparently on location for the shoot, after hours spent fussing over how to style her hair to make it look like Taylor has bangs, the county-pop star said to hell with it (probably something much sweeter) and had them just go for it. Though she’s not the first beauty to give in to the world renowned magazine when it’s come to drastically changing a hairstyle for the sake of fashion (ie: Natalie Portman and Selma Blair), Taylor Swift has earned a few (style) points in my book.
Then there’s the lovely Emmy Rossum, another drop dead beauty, covering the latest issue of Self magazine. Miss Rossum, however made it clear she’s not so laid back with her long brown locks. “It’s not like cutting your hair… you can always take the sweater off!” Granted this fashion shoot was for a magazine more focused on women’s health and wellness vs fashion, it appears she may not be so carefree with her style.
Vahram Muratyan is a Paris-based graphic designer who was experiencing his “midlife crisis” at the tender age of 30. Having spent time living between Paris (his homeland), and New York City, Muratyan noticed himself suffering from a bit of the “grass is always greener on the other side” syndrome and decided to put pen to paper noting his daily observations as a sort of art therapy. Turns out his way of coping did him some good. Debuting on February 2, Muratyan isbringing us “Paris versus New York: A Tally of Two Cities” (Penguin $20). “A friendly visual match between two cities told by a lover of Paris wandering through New York. Details, cliche’s, contradictions: This way please.”
“People always say there is never the time to read a book or to do something on your own. I just kept dreaming in my sketchbook, which is something I used to do a lot of. I always hoped people would see my work as art,” he said. “I decided to do an image per day on my blog as a way to keep that dream alive.”
“Classics with a surprise” is what Style.com’s Nicole Phelps had to say about newcomer Pedro Lourenco‘s Pre-fall 2012 collection. Frankly, I beg to differ. I don’t believe that description does this collection justice. See for yourself…
The first that comes to mind is London based designer Mary Katrantzou who in all her glory brought us a breathtaking Spring 2010 collection adorned with “photorealistism.” Her ability to be boldly innovative and ever so chic at the same time has been groundbreaking, thus paving the way for a major new (and very 21st century feeling) trend. And if you ask me, Pedro Lourenco has done a damn good job following her lead. With the use of asymmetrical patterns and the mix of ombre embellished designs, he does a brilliant job at making this collection his own. I give props to Mr. Lourenco and look forward to what he will bring us next.

The red carpet on last night’s Golden Globes was (unfortunately) pretty much what I had anticipated-tasteful overall, but a bit of a bore. It’s no fun when your favorite stars play it safe, but hey maybe some of them are saving it for the Oscars? Anyway, here were some of the nights best…
London based designer Roksanda Ilincic has only been showing at fashion week since 2008, but she’s certainly made a place for herself on the fashion front. What she showed us for Pre-fall 2012 was splendidly playful yet minimalist. The uncomplicated silhouettes have been infused with a strong dose of primary colors, creating a perfect balance of confined fun.
The second to last look is a fabulous updated version of what we can maybe say will be a Roksanda Ilincic classic.
