This Christian Louboutin flats are sublime

I love Christian Louboutin and I love exotic skins. So, this Christian Louboutin Rosella Water Snake Ballerina Flats is a match made in heaven. I will wear them with every outfit, from a white dress to skinny jeans. The blush colour is perfect with every colour. Unfortunately, I can just admire them in front of my computer screen or in my dream because of the nearly 2000 ringgit price tag. I can buy at least 2 or 3 pairs of Repetto flats with 2000 ringgit. Adieu, Loubi flats..

Brian Atwood Rose Gold Maniac Pumps

Rose gold is my favourite metal colour. It is very hard to find any shoes or clothes in this colour except jewellery. I'm wearing a rose gold pendant and many people complimented on it. This pumps are collaboration of Victoria Beckham and Brian Atwood for her Spring 2011 collection. Actually she asked Brian Atwood to match colour of the pumps with her rose gold Rolex which is a present from her husband for her 36th birthday. She also wore them on her presentation day.

Just In : Carey Mulligan's Preen Dress

Four months ago, Carey Mulligan wore this tea length dress to the BAFTA Awards. The dress has a beaded taupe bodice and a black crepe full skirt. At first, I thought the dress has black panel at shoulder. It turns out that the back of the dress is a rib jersey back with a keyhole detail. The young starlet paired her dress with electric blue suede YSL Palais pumps. On the other hand, Net-a-porter styled the dress with a YSL statement cuff, black clutch and black sandals. I prefer the blue Palais pumps over the strappy sandals, what about you?

Kate Spade Essex Scout Flap Bag

'Less is more' is the perfect phrase to describe this candy-coloured Kate Spade Essex Scout Flap Bag. Some compared it with the Cambridge Satchel Company's satchel, but I think we should also compare it with Proenza Schouler PS11 too. Three of them have flap, front pocket, and buckles. Okay, stop beating around the bush. The Cambridge Satchel Company Satchel (long name, isn't it?) is preppy. Kate Spade Essex Scout Flap Bag is simple and sweet. And Proenza Schouler PS11 is edgy. Apart of that, this Kate Spade satchel's price strikes between the other two at $395. It costs 200 dollars more than the CSCS (you know, I'm lazy to type the name again and again), but it's only a quarter of the price of PS11 which is $1850. It was also featured in Vogue US recently.

Blake Lively shops with Straight-of-the-Runway Chanel Bag

Blake Lively is spotted buying toothbrushes in New York yesterday. She still dressed stylishly even though she was running errands. She wore a grey dress and a Smythe tweed blazer. Her casual outfit is paired with a printed scarf, burgundy tights, lace up ankle boots, cloche hat and a green Chanel Fall 2011 chain strap flap bag. Although this bag is not as classic as Chanel 2.55, but this is refreshing after the remake of Chanel classic bag every season. This colour is not presented on runway, so I think maybe there will be more options of colour during the press preview. Isn't she supposed to tote the new Mademoiselle Bag everywhere? Anyway, she's lucky to have a collection of Chanel bags in her closet.

Alexander 'Ice'Queen

As the title suggests, Ice Queen is in the mind of Sarah Burton when she designed this collection. In the hand of Sarah Burton, the brand gains a sense of serenity, but still maintains McQueen's dramatic aesthetic. The palette is mainly black, grey and white. Most of the pieces have fur trims and zipper details, and some looks have bondage over structured jackets and flowing dress. There was no handbags presented, so we'll just focus on shoes. Lace-up boots and fabulous heelless wedges with metal detail are shown. We'll soon see Daphne Guinness and Lady Gaga walking around in them. My favourites are two dresses with china sew on the bodice and wedges. There are rumours that Sarah Burton will be designing the wedding gown of Catherine Middleton. If it's true, she'll be the most fashion-forward bride in the history.

One Dolce & Gabbana Dress on Three Covers

Last spring, miu miu flower appliqu├ęd dress landed 3 covers, but it's not that serious as the dress has two colours, lilac and yellow. The real cover-crash-disaster happened last fall, when 9 magazines used the $30000 gold Balmain dress for their covers. Seem like Dolce & Gabbana white eyelet dress is the 'it' dress for spring 2011 as it has graced 3 covers, so far.
Vogue Paris's new editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt first cover features supermodel Gisele Bundchen, photographed by Dutch duo, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, at St. Barth. This cover is my favourite among the three covers. It makes me think of spring, the breeze, the warmth...
My favourite French model Constance Jablonski looks angelic gracing the February cover of Spain Vogue. But the font and colour overwhelm the dress.
