MFW: Gucci AW15 RTW

Gucci Autumn/Winter 2015 Ready to Wear at Milan Fashion Week

News broke only a month ago that Alessandro Michele would be replacing Frida Giannini as creative director at Gucci. And the drama aside, I'm still not sure how I feel.
Pros: this collection is really beautiful and beautifully done. I love the long silhouettes and the loose ruffles, embroidery, and fur coats. The suited looks were gorgeous and strong. 
Cons: I wasn't blown away as I expected to be. Maybe my expectations were too high; but if this collection was from Frida, I'd say it was still beautiful but definitely not her best. Yes, I will compare Alessandro to Frida, as they come from the same Gucci culture in the first place - he worked under her for long enough to have her signature stick to him. 

Guys, I would love to hear your thoughts!
How do you feel about this choice of creative director? Do you like this collection?

Burberry Prorsum Autumn/Winter 2015 Ready to Wear at London Fashion Week

You all know me by now... I obsess over these Burberry shows to the point where they become an actual highlight from all fashion weeks combined.
Yet again, Burberry transformed it's Hyde Park show location into something special - this season it's Woodstock mixed with the early '70s boho spirit. The 1970s: so trendy right now, it's unreal. But I admire each and every designer's take on it. 
Christopher Bailey gave us many flowy dresses in traditional paisley prints, along with fridges suede in burgundy, teal, navy, natural browns. This was a autumn collection with a surprisingly little amount of black pieces, such as outerwear and frocks; a refreshing turn for Burberry. 
Ponchos continue to be everything, but now, instead of having out initials on them, we'll get a poncho which looks properly vintaged and almost like it came straight from the (very chic) prairie. The tapestry-like and heavily embroidered coats and dresses with the mirror details - also loved. 

Now, a mention regarding the front row. Naomi came late, Patrick had a laugh at that with Kate. Oh, we could all be friends. But my favorite was how during the show, and especially during the finale, the audience was swaying with the music and were properly singing along with Clare Maguire to the tunes 'House of the Rising Sun' and 'My Sweet Lord'. Sensational. xx

LFW: Preen by Thornton Bregazzi AW15 RTW

Preen by Thornton Bregazzi Autumn/Winter 2015 Ready to Wear at London Fashion Week

When you de-construct the first about 10 or so pieces you'll find stellar coats, sweaters, etc. in the most beautiful colors and plaid prints. And then, as the collection continues, we end up with stunning floral dresses which would be perfect for any season.
Each model seemed to float, even though all of the layers. Preen is the one in London who would make cold weather dressing this light and airy. xx

Tom Ford Autumn/Winter 2015 Ready to Wear - Backstage Beauty

In a collection of bombshell frocks and Tom's signature chic, it was the makeup which really caught my attention. I think this lightly lined bronzed eye and nude lip are absolutely gorgeous, very fresh, and just what I want right now. Here's how I'm going to be creating this look, drug-store-beauty-brand friendly:
