This past week, all of our favorite fashionistas migrated to Paris to attend the White Fairy Tale Love Ball at the Chateau de Valentino (proving that the fashion set live like royalty in real life… ). The ball was hosted by Russian supermodel Natalia Vodianova to raise money for her organization, the Naked Heart Foundation.
While the guests provided plenty of eye candy(they were in town for the couture shows, after all), the highlight of the event was the much anticipated fashion show of 45 dresses, created specifically for the foundation by just about all our favorite fashion houses, from Lanvin to Oscar to Yves Saint Laurent… The gallery below will give you an idea of this winter-themed wonderland. If you ask me, the perfect salve for this sticky malaise of a Summer we’re having.
OAKNYC can do no wrong in my book, so it’s little surprise that in trolling the web for a suitable solution to one of my client’s dress dilemmas, I found the perfect piece on their site. And OH, and HOW. So perfectly askew, this asymmetry.
If I caught you walking down the street in such an ensemble, you just might be accosted by a marriage proposal. Don’t worry, ladyfriends, we can see other people… I’m accommodating that way.

Note: the next thing I fall in love with probably involve feathers, some form of goat fur, leather straps, grommets, spikes, and I will insist on PVC, just to be safe. To fall in love with something so perfectly tame, though perfectly GOOD, inspires in me a minor identity crisis…
