in this case an oversized-flower-print silk top, that exact christopher kane dress, billowy-sleeved chiffonness, that whole last outfit including the giant purple flower, and red. deep red. blood red. beet red. lots of red.
I'm not exactly sure why I'm so enthralled by this Marie Claire Italia August 2010 spread..
Maybe its the composition or the coloring or the tightly braided wet locks or that beautiful wide-brimmed black hat oh man its gotta be the hat I love hats or it could be the luxuriously textured and lush monochrome black looks she's rocking or the clay red lipstick or the scenery or her perfectly almond shape blue eyes.
Completely charmed by full-skirted fifties cocktail and party dresses lately.
And usually I hate poofy dresses (aka this dress that all the gurlz wore to your high school prom), but I am so smitten with this new silhouette. It's so its womanly rather than girly and playful rather than silly.
