Project Runway’s Dom Streater Designs

Standard

Dom Streater may have just presented her first collection at New York Fashion Week, but the Philadelphia native is definitely used to having her designs sized up by the fashion elite.

She’s the reigning winner of “Project Runway” and has proven herself worthy of the spotlight. But now the 25-year-old designer, who is the show’s first-ever African-American winner, is looking to secure her place amongst the biggest designers in the industry — and if her Fall/Winter 2014 collection is any indication of that campaign then she’s on the right track.

As NYFW came to a close with some of the heavy hitters showing their fall collections, Ralph Lauren sent some of his best work down the runway.

Feeling Valentino

Valentino Spring/Summer 2014

It’s Valentine’s Day, so why not go Valentino! Valentino sent a multitude of looks down the runway for Spring/Summer 2014, so it’s no surprise that their new ad campaign for the collection is just as grandiose.

The ornate embellishments and patterns in the garments give a worldly, well-traveled appearance, all of which is highlighted by the outdoor landscape around them. I love the juxtaposition between the clothes and the scenery on this shoot!

Donna Karan Resort 2014 Collection

Standard

When asked about the inspiration for her Resort 2014 Collection, Donna Karan was quoted to say that it was all about the “L” word – and then listed several: long, lean, languid, luxurious, light. These adjectives definitely sum up the collection well.

Aside from the occasional stripe and polka dot, solid colors dominated, mostly in neutral shades with pops of red. Bare shoulders, boxy blazers, effortless and gorgeous draping were key characteristics as well. I personally am looking forward to Spring. Do you have any favorites? Enjoy!

Lupita Nyong’o is Fun & Edgy for Vogue Italia’s February 2014 Issue

Standard

I absolutely love me some Lupita Nyong’o (Actress, “12 Years a Slave”)! Her ascent to the top of the sartorial sphere has been an amazing transition to watch. Check out her latest spread for the February issue of Vogue Italia, shot by Tony Munro. In it Nyong’o sizzles in some of Spring 2014′s hottest looks. And in case you’re not on the Lupi-train yet, maybe this fun and edgy editorial for Vogue Italia Magazine would convince you.

Showing her excited yet edgy side, Lupita has been featured in the issues’ February 2014 fashion editorial styled by Patti Wilson. If for some bizarre and very unlikely reason acting doesn’t pan out for Lupita, modeling is so her forté.
