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 =)
Did you watch the Oscars on Sunday night? The show seemed to last forever… and I only half paid attention because I was busy drawing pretty dresses! Metallics were definitely a theme and Naomi Watts’ dress was absolutely stunning. Jessica Chastain looked glamourous and I can never say no to an Oscar de la Renta confection!
p.s. How awesome were the vintage costume illustrations lining the red carpet?! It’s so exciting to see a seemingly lost art celebrated at a major event =)
Finally, I’m back in business… It was a month ago yesterday that my DF (dear fiancé!) popped the question and since then, all my free time has been spent wedding planning. I’m fully absorbed in choosing a venue and booking a date. Once that’s settled, I figure I can breathe a bit easier…
On Friday evening, I stopped by Bergdorf Goodman’s bridal salon to have a peek at Oscar de la Renta’s Fall 2013 bridal trunk show. I was able to see the gorgeous lace, layers, and beading up close and personal! The gowns were breathtaking and just as ethereal in real life… a girl can certainly dream =)
Have a great start to your week!
P.S. – If you’re in the New York area, be sure to check out Bergdorf’s windows… they’re Instagram worthy!
I can always count on the Oscar de la Renta show for some illustration inspiration! The details were stunning and I cannot get enough of his girly girl frocks. Usually it’s all sweet but this time around he got a little edgy, well edgy for Oscar… latex suits anyone? Neon streaks in the models’ hair didn’t hurt either =)
Hope you’re having a relaxing Sunday… the weather in NYC is going to be beautiful and I just might have to go out and enjoy it!
