Happy Monday lovelies! Last night I was up late sketching some of my favorite looks from the Golden Globes as they walked the red carpet… there were definitely some gorgeous gowns! You should still be able to catch work-in-progress clips on my Snapchat (@JoannaLBaker) and Instagram Stories (@JoannaBaker) if you check by 7pm tonight! Here are close ups of some of my favorite dresses…
The couture shows last week did not disappoint! I got up early to watch some of the shows live stream from Paris and pick my favorites straight off the runways. It’s always hard to choose which looks to sketch as the inspiration is endless!
Last week I was in complete sketching heaven… couture week was upon us and my instafeed was overflowing with inspiration. It’s always exciting when you have so many things to draw that you can’t keep up!
Giambattista Valli was by far my favorite… the proportions, the colors, the styling… it was all just begging to be sketched!! Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad also didn’t disappoint in a plethora of sparkles and gowns fit for queens. The Valentino show was very dark but very beautiful. I wasn’t as inspired to draw any of those looks yet though… I think I’m still too much in a summer state of mind! =) A golden goddess from the Elie Saab show:
We had planned a visit to the country to see my family this past weekend but I knew I couldn’t leave my art supplies in New York. So I packed up everything and kept sketching on the go! Three sparkly looks from Zuhair Murad:
So many sparkles and so much tulle… it’s time for me to come back to reality but I just can’t get over these photos! Someday maybe Giambattista will be my everyday 😉 Have a fabulous week!
Watching all the coverage of the Cannes film festival pop up on social media has definitely been the fashion highlight of my week… there were so many sparkly dresses! And I’m obsessed with these column gowns with full side skirts from Zuhair Murad. Petra and Chanel looked absolutely stunning in theirs while Karlie made an entrance in blue Oscar de la Renta. I never tire of sketching gorgeous gowns!
I hope you have a wonderful long weekend! Relax, rest up, and enjoy some sunshine =)
