My absolute fashion icon... forever (by vogue.com)

“I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and. . . I believe in miracles.”
Audrey Hepburn

If we could choose a miracle, it would be to see the actress herself—perfectly turned out and happily here to celebrate today. On what would have been her 83rd birthday, for this installment of Dress the Part, we honor her legacy as a practically unparalleled fashion icon by highlighting a trio of her signature looks from her classic films. Whether in the guise of Holly Golightly in Givenchy—the dress that launched the LBD—window-shopping for jewels and gallivanting around an idealized version of New York City in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, an incognito princess exploring Italy in Roman Holiday, or an intellectual turned high-fashion model in Funny Face, Hepburn’s onscreen style never misses the mark. Offscreen she was just as chic as her characters, keeping it simple with clean lines and silhouettes that highlighted her famously slim physique. Capri pants, ballet flats, men’s button-down shirts, a classic trench were her off-duty go-tos—all synonymous with the Audrey Hepburn aesthetic that lives on to this day.



Raf Simons for Dior

Well, after long long months keeping all fashionistas in suspense, it was the big news this month: officially, Galliano’s 

successor will be Raf Simons, the Belgian designer. Artistic director for Jil Sander, since 2005 and for his own brand I’ve 

always liked his minimalist style, he is famous for it in the fashion world.

But what is gonna happen with Dior? 4 collections a year, ready to wear plus cruise, I’m pretty afraid we are going to come 

back to the genuine Dior codes, 50’s style and everything.

Yes, economically for Dior it’s a good thing during those crisis times but I regret John’s creativity, irreplaceable.

First show in July for F/W 12-13, we’ll see. For the meantime, some pics Raf Simons designs for Jil Sander 50’s style S/S12 




Oscars review

Ok, shame on me, more than one month without a post... too busy I am


I don't like a lot red carpet style, and especially the American one, with these evening gowns and with

 bun with too much hairspray, and this anti-nude make up

So here, The best, the worst, the I-really-don't-know, my notes and your opinion...

The three winners

Nathalie Portman in Vintage Christian Dior Haute Couture

Ok, red on red carpet can be a big deal but this polka dots gown is beautiful even if i hate that necklace 

definitely, it's too big

Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford

gorgeous but what about the cape?

Angelina Jolie in Armani Prive

Ok I haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaate velvet, I can't stand it, ok the shape is nice, she is gorgeous like always 

but that pose? no comments

Berenice Bejo in Elie Saab

I love this aqua green, trendy for next ss12 and the delicate pearl embroideries 

Rose Byrne in Vivienne Westwood

Well, I don't know if love it or I hate it

But, one of the most beautiful make up & hairstyle

Kristen Wiig wears a J. Mendel gown

The shape is nice with veils and I appreciate now that nude hue

Milla Jovovich wears an Elie Saab 

20's atmosphere with her hairstyle & make up

Louise Roe wears a Black Halo

Lovely pale pink

Rooney Mara wears a Givenchy gown

Cameron Diaz in Gucci 

Stacy Keibler wearing Marchesa 

Too much coopery 

Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli

No no no, bad choice

Jessica Chastain in Alexander McQueen

McQueen I love you but here it doesn't work, not at all

Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton

Is it possible to be too lovely? Yes, bows are childish on red carpet, sorry

Ellie Kemper in an Armani Prive gown

No... that's it

Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad

The worst (and not just for me) but at least she matches the shape of Oscars awards...

Just for the French Touch

Alexandra Lamy in Azzaro, gorgeous
