“What’s Lily Wearing?” Wednesday John Galliano Fall/Winter 2009 RTW White Christmas?  If anyone could change the weather and make it happen it would be John Galliano.  His brilliant, creative, genius mind is the closest thing I know to magic.  At his fall/winter 2009 runway show in Paris, snowflakes fell from above the runway.  The models were […]


“What’s Lily Wearing?” Wednesday Carolina Herrera Fall/Winter 2009 RTW “Trendy” is not a word typically used to describe Carolina Herrera.  The mother-daughter designers maintain red carpet presence by consistently reinterpreting old hollywood glamour.  Oscar attendees will no doubt love the luxe textured fabrics and one-shoulder gowns in this seasons collection.  It’s no surprise that partnered […]


“What’s Lily Wearing?” Wednesday Ralph Lauren Fall/Winter 2009 RTW Lets play a word association game.  What comes to mind when I say Ralph Lauren?  All-American.  Equestrian.  Romantic.  English Country.  Little House on the Prarie.  Polo-playing WASP’s.  the Old West.  So what does his heroine wear?  She is natural of course, with skin glowing and bronzed […]

“What’s Lily Wearing?” Wednesday Versace Fall/Winter 2009 RTW The Eighties were referenced all over the fall/winter collections, and what represents the decade of excess more than blue eyeshadow?  But a funny thing happened on the Versace runway.  Models came out in neon dresses, big fluffy hair, and blue shadow to the brows. . . and […]


“What’s Lily Wearing?” Wednesday Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 2009 RTW Full disclosure:  I have a bias toward a red lip.  Red lips say confidence, power, glamour, sex.  When you have thirty seconds to create a makeup look, a swipe of red on the lips looks instantly pulled-together.  A red lip can be paired with any […]
