Runway Notes Spring/Summer 2012 – Sheer Fashion

The sheer trend is not going away with 2011. Sheer blouses, pants, skirts, and dresses are present in many of the spring/summer 2012 runway shows. These are some of my favorite looks that feature this risque trend from the latest shows.

Fashion Icon – Annie Lennox

Annie Lennox is a great example of a strong woman who does what she thinks is right and who conquered the world with confidence and sheer talent. This season, with the popularity of menswear-inspired womenswear, Lennox is the perfect fashion muse to look to. The current trend of tuxedo jackets is something she has been doing since the eighties. Recently she has turned all her attention to activism, like her SING charity witch raises funds for HIV/AIDS education and treatment. She is also not the only Lennox in the fashion world anymore, her daughter Tali Lennox is now modeling and has already been in a Burberry campaign.

Best Eyewear 2011

Designers are turning out some beautiful shades and very cool eyeglasses this year, and the ad campaigns are not your boring old eyewear ads. Love it.

Elle Fanning for Marc Jacobs, new fashion darling

Freja Beha Erichsen for Tom Ford, girl looks so fierce, even with a crow about to bite her nipple

Freja Beha Erichsen for Karl Lagerfeld, she is EVERYWHERE

Ksubi Eyewear, love the thick frames

Daria Werbowy for Yves Saint Laurent, I’m a sucker for the Mia Wallace look

I am a huge lover of booties. These are my favorites from the fall 2011 collections, some of my favorites. I had to edit the post down to a reasonable number of images.

Iza Olak for Elle Spain

Love the other-worldly feel of the setting and the soft colors in this story. Model Iza Olak for Elle Spain July 2011. Great styling, amazing sheer and metallic pieces.


Edie Campbell – Numéro China May 2011

Edie Campbell is a really versatile model it seems, she can look like a school girl, all dolled up old-school glamorous, and apparently with the right make up, kind of Asian. The editorial was shot by Tiziano Magni for Numéro China May 2011 issue (#8) and styled by Joseph Carle. There are some great pieces in this spread, I love the really low crotch harem pants, and the mustard-colored embellished top. Once again the beige leather Gucci top has made it’s way into yet another editorial, I think this is the third one, maybe even fourth, that I’ve spotted it in, does that garment have it’s own marketing team?


Vogue Turkey – On The Morning of The Club

This editorial from the July 2011 issue of Vogue Turkey depicts some very fun girls the morning after a night of partying. The styling is that perfect disheveled sexy that is so intriguing even to those of us who are normally well-behaved and groomed to perfection.
