First lady..in Red

Michelle Obama has attended a state reception wearing a beautifully patterned Alexander McQueen gown. 

The stunning creation in red tones would be very appropriate as with the Chinese, red symbolises luck.

Sarah Burton the Creative Director for Alexander McQueen has used a strong Russian Military feel for this Menswear range yesterday. 

The Models walked to music with a military and tribal mish mash feel in a gold guilded room that most flamboyant gentlement would use as a Dining or sitting room.

Many suits on show with this collection, tailoring taken in an unfinished way with a couple of the jacket sleeves not quite sewn to the shoulder.Beautiful long coats with oversized collars were a strong feature to this collection. 

A big role to fill with the passing of McQueen, This menswear collection is completely wearable and I think Sarah Burton is doing a wonderful job in keeping the label true to McQueen’s style. I do however ponder as I watch this video.. What would Alexander have really done?.

The Menswear collection from Vivienne Westwood came with 50’s style tailoring, vintage patterns and the male models all donning lipstick.. always one to give the boundary a nudge.. 

With a Royal Wedding coming up, Dame Vivienne Westwood has made mention of it in her notes for her current menswear collection.  Using the catwalk for girls to dream of their bridegroom and goes on to say..

"We’re going with the guy in the drop-crotch high waisted pants" ..

A Harry-high pants eh Vivienne with a low hanging crotch? hmmm.. there’s a thought! .. No I cant got there! 

I would go even as further to suggest that Dame Vivienne actually design the suits for Prince William when he weds in April this year. Westwoods tailoring has been a favourite of mine for many years. Saville Road may be considered the best in London and or the world but I would love to see a tailor-off with them and Westwood! .

Having seen the Vivienne Westwood collection in Canberra a few years back I was amazed at the detailing in all her work and surprisingly her jackets and suits were just as jaw dropping as her huge eccentric gowns that have glided down the catwalks on “The Stallions”- that are the Supermodels of the 90s..

Dolce & Gabbana Menswear show in Milan

This collection it seems the D&G boys Stefano and Dommenico have incorporated a “corporate” look .. by using two distinctive American icons in media and products today. Coca-Cola and Mickey Mouse (Disney) emblazened on T-shirts, (ever so slighted) puffa jackets and (hopefully fake) fur coats and fur lined hoodies. Casual, smart casual seems to dominate the collection..  Never have Mickey and Coke looked so appealing!.. well to me! Sell out or clever marketing?

 The timer is counting down the minutes till the live cross to Paris on www.vogue.fr
Hilary Alexander Fashion journo from the UK tweeting in the lead up.. mentioning the front row consisting of Jade Jagger and Daisy Lowe. I remember Alexander sitting next to Kylie Minogue at the Chanel show in 2006,  one of Kylie&#8217;s first public appearences since the completion of her treatment for breast cancer.
For the show in Paris , there will be approximately 52 cameras doing 360 degree photos and visuals for the live feed to iPad and iphone.
I am watching from my trusty iMac computer&#8230;.. via Australian journalist Patty Huntington (whom i greatly admire)  facebook page.
And they are LIVE!!!!!..My link kept dropping out and sent many bloggers and online users in meltdowns!!!!
This Collection so far..A Mish mash of Asian influence and african safari.Taxidermy tigers on the Slab/ Runway, many  flowy and structured pieces with zebra prints in metalics, varying in colour. I loved the white suit with the giraffes and a panda dress.Models walked a black slab of marble for their runway.  
Alot of Colour Blocking&#8230;Ultraviolet Pinks, blue, Purples,   Metallics, seemingly discs sewn on to the first couple of garments. Lace fans, high waisted shorts, japanese style influences, sleeveles tops and knee length pink kimono,  I loved the Shiny/metallic Blue tailored suit modelled by Ajak Deng.
