So after this week, I’m addicted to runway shows. And yesterday I discovered two things. First and most importantly I broke the cardinal rule for being a photographer. MAKE SURE YOU CHARGE YOUR BATTERY BEFOOOORE AN EVENT! Lesson learned, and thank you to the kind (insert sarcasm here) words of advice to carry around an extra battery pack. Also, I discovered a new found love for haute couture.
So I was pretty bummed when I found out I missed the official Style Week LA runway show on Thursday. LA is about an hour or so drive away from me (with traffic so it’s not really that bad.) But for gas purposes I had to choose my shows wisely. Thus my finale was Runway Magazines, “Rock That Fashion” post Style Week party.
Granted the press release had stated there would be a slew of celebrities there, but the only stars I saw were on the runway in the form of haute couture and bedazzled swim suits. It was love at first sparkle. The runway featured everything I could have ever hoped to witness on a catwalk. Drama, sparkle, fluff, a Madonna impersonation annd a tribute to legends of fashion including McQueen. If I had a drink in hand I would have raised a glass to the late and great designer.
Ugh, so incredibly annoyed my camera only lasted 3 shows in. But the memories will last a life time. Such an incredible end to such a fun week! I found it incredibly fitting that almost everywhere I went last night Britney’s new song “Work Bitch” was playing. She’s right if you want something in life, ya gotta work bitch.
What trends did I spot during this season?
In LA, anything really goes (except to the lady who showed up in a poncho. Just, no.) All the bandage dresses were boring. I loved the girls taking risks! Black is always chic and classic. I loved all the pleated leather skirts! To the girl wearing the fuschia bedazzled Jimmy Choos, you win the best shoe award. Surprisingly I LOVE LOVE LOVE the hipsters chic use of denim. And braids are perhaps the hottest trend in hairstyles.
Until next season Style Week!
