ETERNAL BLACK REVIVAL

black rocks this year’s runway

Style is somebody’s cumulative choices of what they decided to wear everyday. Mood swings, events, and purpose of the day are basically what effects their decision.

So when somebody decided to put on black on black attire for the day, or for the rest of their lives, what could their message be? Was it just plain their favorites, or was it something more?

the girl who kick ass in black

Before going to places, a person choose how to get dress. Colors, fabrics, patterns and eventually it became their style for the day.

Many of them are always have signature things, such as bracelets, cuffs, or even piercings. No matter what, the look that we choose, relying the feelings we were having that time.

It is powerful how one look can affect how you feel for the rest of the day. Take example in “the girl with the dragon tatoo: the girl who kicked the hornet’s nest” when Lisbeth Salander -played by Noomi Rapace- decided to go all out black on black and put all the punk attire for her trial. The image is strong looking, fearless, and even challenging.

She basically said, “You have got nothing on me, and i am stronger than ever!”

The rough life of lisbeth doesn’t make her weak, infact its getting her more stronger. So when you look at the movie, you will see how she dressed and how she personafied the look.

for me black is…

Strong. That’s what i always get and aim when i wear black and all kinds of black with all its shades for my outfit of the day.

Not only suits me, but i feel really comfortable and it gives me an extra confidence to do anything for the rest of the day. Whether it’s formal or informal occassion, i always fall for black attire (with twists of its shades, like grey and white)

Where the black stands

“Notice me, but do not disturb me.” Is what black gives a message. In more elaborate interpretation, a sense of mystery, inconspicous and gives protection from invinsibility. Meanwhile, as a gem stone, crystal-cure.com said black symbolizes resilience and self control.

Among the events like black tie, and cocktail parties, black becomes the main choices for elegance. but on the other hand, black blends well with punk style. as it said earlier, rebellious black marks a perfect message to what the punk community delivers.

There are many conflicting ideas what the black is all about. as if it always mysterious, and no one can fathom what really it stands. eventually, versatility become the primary status -in the sense of its function- in the fashion world.

ONCE UPON THE STARS AT GOLDEN GLOBE 2010 AWARDS

Alas, the 2010 Golden Globe awards revealed their winners!

Congratulations for Robert Downey Jr., Sandra Bullock, Merryl Streep, my-favourite-villain-ever Christopher Waltz, and Martin Scorsese for the Cecil B. DeMille award, to name a few.

Now let’s review back to the red carpet moments.

The gents were presenting their best appearances at the red carpet with different tux style.

Mickey Rourke may be titled for the worst dressed in various media. Yet i found his character are exceptionally immersed into that Croco collar tux.

As for my favorite director ever, Mr. Quentin Tarantino, i have to say that maybe he better stick to directing a film, and trusting the red carpet moments to his partner, or stylist.

The cape made him looked like a Jedi from Star Wars. Nevertheless, he is a one unique brilliant gentleman.

As i have reviewed before, i have high hopes for the red carpet stars to take a fresh look for their golden moments, especially the new ones.

Supported by the gloomy and showery weather in Hollywood, Penelope Cruz, Julia Roberts, Jeniffer Aniston, Mariah Carey, Meryl Streep, Lea Michelle from Glee, and January Jones from Mad Men chose to wear solid black.

Black is often to be judged for the safest choice you can decide the red carpet.

Though it would be stunning and wise if you just had the right reason and charisma for it.

So who wise enough to wear the classic black gown?

If i think of Penelope Cruz, surely it will not take a lot of effort for dressing her.

She has a natural beauty.

But then again, when she put a black gown with sequined lace details and mermaid tail of a vintage Armani like that, it hit the right character for her.

A sexy talented Spanish actress that struck the American soil.

Jeniffer Aniston and Mariah Carey were consistently presented their true character.

Meanwhile Mariah Carey clearly shown the classic side of her, but truthfully it would be great to see her on a more demure and suit her curves elegantly.

For that point, among Jeniffer Aniston, and Mariah Carey, i had to say that she were embracing Cruz’s character wisely enough.

Young actresses like Lea, and January, i found it less interesting.

Not that Lea’s gown is not amazing, that Oscar De La Renta gown was gorgeous, but too save for her looks.

Meanwhile for January, I just found it too safe. The details were not enough to help it.

As for Meryl Streep, the gown was not that great for the colour. But the shape were suitable for her figure.

Last but not least, Julia Roberts’s little black dress were saved by her million dollar smile and big chunk gold necklace.

The Sheer and Dazzles

Now let’s voted for the best dressed artists.

If you have read the previous post for 2010 red carpet events, you must have seen the Versace gown that i chose for the options.

Turned out, Christina Aguilera worn it to the Golden Globe award!

It absolutely fitted her perfectly!

A tamed pink one for Christina, but the model of the gown were the one that kept her edgy and sexy like she always does, but better!

Came from the same colour, but more peachy, and the same label, Drew Barrymore look stunning and sheer with that Versace.

Nevertheless, I already chose 3 dresses that had what it takes for the best dressed award!

Stella McCartney’s gown was definitely the hero of the red carpet! Anna paquin worn it perfectly. The cutting is simple but the gold metallic embellishment, wow!

Next to Anna was the sheer queen-of-drama, and winner of the best performance by an actress in a mini series or motion picture made for television, Drew Barrymore in Grey Gardens, with her Versace unique sparkling embellishment gown.

Last but not least, Christian Lacroix gown was the black horse at the Golden Globe 2010. Worn by Diane Kruger, who had often to reveal her edgy side of her. At the Golden Globe, she embraced her romantic side to the max.

KARL LAGERFELD ON TALK ASIA, CNN



His quotes:
“sometimes ideas came when i woke up, or in my dreams.. you have to work on the garbage ones to make it the best idea..”

“some people say appetite is growing when you eat.. new ideas came and i get inspired when i work… for me, the one that says they wait for inspiration to come first, is just their excuse for lazyness..”

“competition is not always bad, it’s healthy and makes you be better..”

A great designer, and a great thinker and person as well..

When he was asked whether he’s constantly having new inspirations or viewing from designer’s blogs,

he said that “of course, i’m like a tv antena you know, i catch everything and do it my way”

LOVELY DECEMBER

Nevertheless, the top designers and brands like Burberry and Karl Lagerfeld maintain its creativity and still presents the best Ready-to-Wear collections.

This month, i will review 12 TOP STYLE ITEMS that consecutively i love! and that is rare.. so that’s why i said that 2009 is the best year for fashion trends.
