Couture Part 2…

I shouldn’t have gotten my hopes up…
After last night’s disasters, I thought- prayed that Armani Prive would restore my faith back into the idea of “haute couture.” I was wrong. What is usually glamourous, delicate and effortless has turned into forced, “trying to be edgy”, and most of all kind of tacky. The greens didn’t bother me, nor the prints, nor this idea of an electric reptile of some sorts… My biggest problem with Armani Prive was the lack of beauty. 


These were my three favorite looks from Armani Prive’s SPRING 2012 Couture Collection.

GIVENCHY… They really are always quite on it.
Their S&M meets sexual bull pen, meets divine goddess screamed couture.
It was lavish and well made, and the models looked perfect. What i love about Givenchy’s couture collections:
1. THey are always photographed front and back
and… my favorite: They are always photographed as a group.

PS. Love the basketball + hoop

And then there was Chanel… Think Pan Am meets Jungle Frenzy Frump…
Let down. again. The blacks, the whites, the baby blues, it was just all kind of ugly.
This Couture Season has been awful.

The first look I posted, I did love. I thought that it was kind of amazing, and I needed one- like yesterday, as for the rest, it was all just kind of mediocre and not really thought out. The embellished wide hems I thought were just too much, and it made the girls look bottom heavy, and wide.

I PRAY TO GOOD ELIE SAAB’S SHOW IS BEAUTIFUL- IT USUALLY IS…. LETS PRAY.

THE INLAND EMPIRE’S ALMOST FABULOUS

The Inland Empire’s Almost Fabulous
As Told by Me: a Gaysian.
It isn’t like we are the cast of the “A List” but we are surely a part of something great. It is the combination of dedication, drive and exceptional talent that has brought us this far. Every person has played their part in SOCIAL CULTURE IE. It wasn’t like I woke up one day and had this fabulous life, or even half the talent that I have now. It has taken years of grooming, etiquette and life experiences to create me. So, on days like yesterday- when I get to work with the extremely talented group of SOCIAL CULTURE IE artists, I realize how lucky I am.
