XXII Couture.

twenty two haute things to love about fashion.

Yesterday I raved about how FIERCE Marie Claire’s November issue with Victoria Beckham on the cover looked, but once again Marie Claire has brought the fierceness to another level: Glee’s Lea Michele. I love this girl. Never have I seen such a petite woman look so sophisticated, fierce and structured in designer upscale couture. Lea looks amazing (as usual!) on the cover of Britain’s Marie Claire and her pics inside are amazing as well.

Sarah Burton gets a MAJOR two thumbs up for her collection for Alexander McQueen. After McQueen’s tragic passing in February, fans like myself were worried about the future of his line. A major concern I had at the time was is there anyone else in the fashion world that  is as creatively genius as McQueen was with art, esthetic and fashion and luckily for us there is: Sarah Burton. She debuted her McQueen collection this week and it is fabulous, fierce and on fire.

So model Crystal Renn did a photoshoot with Terry Richardson in Vogue Paris’ October issue. I’m not too sure what direction Terry Richardson was going for with these photos but I find something a bit odd about a controversial plus-size model binging on tons of food. Seriously, what message are they really trying to send here?

The fashion week train has moved to London and while us Americans got a taste of the upcoming spring trends, the British are making the most of their fashion week.

To kick off their ode to fashion, Anna Wintor, Naomi Campbell, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Moss and many other fashionable celebs payed tribute to the late-great Alexander McQueen by attending a private memorial service for him. Miss Wintor led the service and offered a compelling speech about McQueen’s work but this sentenced captured my attention about him when she described McQueen as:

“a complex and gifted young man.”

I couldn’t agree with her more. Anna Wintor knows fashion and talent; and talent is exactly what McQueen had. There’s absoutely no better way to mark the beginning of fashion week in London by celebriting the life of one of the best British designers. Well done, London.

I frickin’ love Solange Knowles. Like, seriously this chick has a style of her own. She’s electic, bohemian and urban but with a little rock star edginess. She’s always seems to amaze me with her clothing choices, her shoe styles and of course her nails. Girl, is a true fashionista and she’s using her good taste to cover FashIzBlack this month.

absolutely cool.

So the 2010 MTV VMA’s were last night and although I was flickering my T.V. from the show to True Blood, I did enjoy the “white” carpet and all the outrageous outfits that walk amongst it. I wasn’t too crazy about alot of the looks on the carpet but I did enjoy a select few. Here is my best-dressed list:

Katy Perry


Selena Gomez

Audrina Patridge

Ashley Greene

I think it’s safe to say I’m a little biased with it comes to fashion (hence: all my favorite looks are similar) but Katy Perry looked the most amazing last night. Then again, when doesn’t she?
