A fashion underworld

OMG I can only imagine the tension that built before the start of this show. Whoever the set designer is should get like an award or something because this is incredible. It almost looks like the world has come to an end but Karl shows that there is still beauty even amongst devastation.  As Coco once said "fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening." Its not just about the clothes, fashion can be seen anywhere even amongst what can look like 
nothing. To me the set of a show is almost as important as the collection as it says what the clothes represent and the ideas behind them at the same time making the show more memorable.

 My favourite items of the A/W 11 have to be the two little coloured blazers as they are just classic and the boots in the third picture. Oh the idea of owning Chanel boots.. well we can dream.  P.S make the pictures bigger by clicking on them as they look so much better blown up! xoxo

A few looks that really stood out to me...

Emma Roberts was by far my best dressed guest of the night. This Chanel dress looks beautiful on her. The fresh icy blue really contrasts with the black coal covered surrounding, only making her stand out more in all that amazing-ness. However she was totally flirting with my boyfriend Chace Crawford (or soon to be/imaginary boyfriend). I even read that at a different event recently her dress accidentally became a little revealing so he went and got her some special tape off his female friend to save the day. Pfft never done that for me Chace... ;)
