Sonia & GaGa

Greetings readers, it’s bloggy-blog time!

So I watched the Sonia Rykiel pour H&M fashion show, and the verdict is: it was a decent effort. The venue was quite nice and the set design was quite cartoony. Whether or not that’s a bad thing is for the public to decide. It got a lot of good reviews from the people that were in attendance, but that’s only because they decided to go to that and not the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. I don’t know whether it was a smart move to air the show on the same day as the VS show, but it was a definitely a big risk. At any rate, the line launches this Saturday.

Now, let’s talk about the Lady herself, that’s right GaGa. She shot a really awesome cover for Elle Magazine. She’s looking ever so pretty, going for a subtle glamour. It’s a breath of fresh air from her normal day-to-day GaGa eccentricities. I think she looks quite beautiful. Anyway, enough talk! Here are the pictures:

Hola readers of the world, or maybe just readers of my class! Bloggy-blog time again. What shall we talk about today? Let’s commence with fashion shows.

I know I was talking about the Sonia Rykiel pour H&M fashion show and I was really excited to see it, the venue was massive! However, other things had to be taken care of and I wasn’t able to see it. I could’ve seen the last bits of it, but those who know me, know that I must see these things in its entirety. So, sadly I missed it. If I can get a hold of some video footage and see it before it launches on Saturday, I will be happy.


I did see the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, though. I got home in time for that. I thought it was quite exciting, but do we expect anything less from the VS Angels?

From the amazing maison light show, the inflatable PINK dog, and the Black Eyed Peas (yes, they performed), it was all amazing. It always amazes me how those models walk with wings n’ things. One model had what seemed to be a golden torture device, fabulous and fierce, but dangerous nonetheless. Heidi Klum was looking ever so German when she walked out (gosh, I love her). Also, a new Angel was added to the pantheon of heavenly bodies as selected by the masses of America. Overall, I think it was a successful show. I don’t have anything to compare it with, but once I see the Sonia Rykiel show, I’ll get back to you.

In other news, New York Fashion Week’s last run in Bryant Park is this upcoming February. It will then make the move to Damrosch Park. So long Bryant Park, we shall miss you [:

Anything blogworthy today? Why yes, there is!

First up, Madame Rykiel's H&M line, let's talk about that, shall we? I, for one, have been très très excited for it; not that I would be wearing the line, but one can appreciate aesthetically pleasing qualities, can't they? Anyway, the line is set to launch this Saturday, December 5, 2009. Along with the launch is a super stellar, Alice in Wonderland inspired fashion show, which is happening today. A preview video has been released, and I'm here to share it with you. Enjoy!

The fashion show will be streaming live on the h&m website, today at 5:00P Eastern time. (here's the link)

On a more, or maybe less exciting note; but fun, nevertheless. Have you all seen the Bad Romance video? I'm only going to refer to the beginning of the video. The surreal, gaga macabre family portrait at the beginning? Remember her nails? It just so happens that the mesh on her nails is from Jo-Ann fabrics. I know! Crazy right? Jo-Ann's is useful, even for high profile music videos. Anyway, I thought that was exciting [:

Alice in Wonderland is great inspiration, but let’s talk cinema. Are you excited for the Tim Burton reimagining of the classic story? If you haven’t done any research on it, you should. I, as well as the majority of my friends are quite excited for it.

p.s. Victoria's Secret Fashion Show tonight on CBS!
