Fashion Spotlight: Kate's Wedding Dress

The greatly awaited dress has been revealed. Modest yet gorgeous. Love the lace and the neckline. The dress is designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. 

And the other anticipated outfit, for me at least, was Victoria's. Designed by her, was disappointing- tres sack-like.

Can't believe I forgot to include Julia when I originally posted this. Her fashion sense has been under fire this week. She is wearing a collection of Australian designers- Anthea Crawford skirt, Carla Zampatti camisole, Aurelio Costarella jacket. You know what I don't mind this outfit, like the navy. Not really loving the jacket with the outfit but still good job Julia.

Fashions on the field: Coachella 2011

Seeing  the line up for Coachella a couple of months ago made me so jealous that we don't have a similar equivalent. Plus it appears to be a star studded affair. Although not really a place of great fashion it is interesting to see what the celebrities are wearing.

Kelly Osborne: I'm always a fan of a blue polka dot dress and this is no exception. Totally cute retro outfit although the shoes and socks kind of throws the look a little. I would of paired it with some red flats.

Camilla Belle: I think this is a perfect festival outfit- simple and comfortable but still looks stylish. 

Fashion face-off: Vanessa Hudgens wore a pair of acid wash hotpants but Lady Victoria Hervey hit a bum note in a purple and turquoise dress

Vanessa Hudgens: I'm usually a fan of her style but don't like any part of this outfit- the 90s denims, the ugly crochet top and necklace. It looks like she was trying too hard to go for that hippie carefree look. That being said the diamontees or whatever they are under her eyes are fun. 

Katy Perry: This look does not fit at all at a music festival. From the neck up- cute festival vibe and then the dress kills it. 

Diane Kruger: Really loving the maxi skirt right now and she rocks this on trend piece perfectly.

LInks à la Mode: Fashion: Forever Evolving

Fashion: Forever Evolving
Edited by Collette Osuna of Statements in Fashion

Hello everyone! I'm super excited to be making my debut as an IFB Links a la Mode Editor this week. As I visited each link, I was reminded that each had the exact thing in common with the next, that Fashion is Forever Evolving.

From your Mothers fashion advice, a beauty "how to" video, or a legendary icons passing, fashion is always changing and taking form in a new shape. I am constantly thriving to acquaint myself with the "fashion unfamiliar." This weeks links did just that for me. I'm thrilled to be a new member of the IFB family and cannot wait to see everyone's posts throughout the upcoming year!

Links à la Mode: March 31st
