The important trick in working nude is to subtly contrast the look with your skin tone.If you choose to do nude in a shade close to your skin color, contrast it with black or go in for shimmer or embellishments as they make the look stand out.In case of doing plain vanilla nude, choose a shade at least two shades lighter than your skin tone, and make sure the dress has some detailing in the form of frills, origami folds, ruffles or layering.Still left wondering how to get your nude look right? Learn from the runways of Spring 2009 Ready-To-Wear, to play with nude in more ways than one!!
On my way back from the crafts class.
I'm a girl of sharp contrasts.
I gotta go swimming after the party.
I'm the definition of power dressing.
I'm the centre of the universe.
I'm all tied to myself.
Did I just step out of your dream?

Spotted Lara Bingle in Sydney at the recently held MTV Australian Awards show in what could be named as Louis Vuitton Spring fest.The star had donned a top, skirt, bag and shoes all from Louis Vuitton's Spring 2009 Ready-To-Wear collection.Agreed that the collection was the toast of Spring 2009, but a bit of mix and match can go a long way in showing that you have some original style, instead of making it seem like you had this event to attend and you discover at the last moment that you don't have anything to wear, rush into a nearby Louis Vuitton store and grab everything you need from there, certainly not the way to go for a red carpet event unless of course you are Louis Vuitton's brand ambassador, that too specifically for Spring 2009!!
On an aside, Lara's outfit looks a cheap imitation of the one seen on the runway(on the runway the colors are rich and vibrant as opposed to near dead colors on Lara's outfit).Is it that the runway photos are doctored to look great or that a photographer with an allergy to bright colors had covered the Australian MTV awards and decided to drain the colors off the outfit? I only hope its the latter for Marc's sake and as for Lara, Bingle girl you failed to jingle!!

Can you help me find the missing piece?
I'm the recessionista, who wears only the bare necessities.
Darn the crow that took off with my corset!!

'The Best Dressed of the Day' until she stood up when some ghastly black appendage to her dress made me strip her of the award!!
Both Jennifer Aniston and Drew Barrymore went the casual way, though Jen's face is still made up.Whose way would you go? I guess I would sway the Jen way, there is still some refinement in the casual look, something neat unlike the rugged look of Drew's.
Can we please have some sensible reviewing and stop peppering the review with mindless adjectives endlessly describing how perfect and flawless each creation is, especially phrases like "its very creative(come on its a designer's job to create), avant-garde, pop culture inspired or more often drawing references to obscure points in history or art without really bothering to explain the rhyme or reason behind the same.During a more recently held fashion show, a fashion critic from a reputed magazine had commented that the show was inspired by Dr.Zhivago's.While Dr.Zhivago is a splendid piece of work (both as a book and as a movie) explaining the travails of World War from the Russian aristocrats' point of view, it begs to be explained how exactly Dr.Zhivago fits into the scheme of things, when all one could comprehend was the usual fare of Fall clothes doing the parade.
So unless people stop riding the sycophancy wagon waiting for a fashion invite to drop in to their mailbox and start viewing fashion as an art form and not as a means of obtaining fanciful purses and clothes, that's the day that would see the birth of a true Fashion Critic as well as the emergence of Fashion As Art.Till then, patience my friend!!

Blow the trumpets and beat the drum for the best dressed lady in town i.e Martina Klein.She so beautifully worked the purple color and the sequined dress.The other ladies of interest who attended the Conde Nast Traveler 2009 Awards (below, clockwise from left) included Aitana Sanchez Gijon, Beatriz de Orleans, Paula Vazquez and Clara Lago.
For those of you accustomed to seeing Sarah Jessica Parker in the realm of Sex and the City, this might be difficult to take in, no glamorous hairdo, pointed stilettos and short dresses but SJP sure seems to be enjoying her stint in NY, shooting for the movie "Did you hear about the Morgans?". Given that Hugh Grant is the male lead of the movie, we can expect some lovey- dovey mushy affair during Christmas, when the movie is finally slated for release. On an aside, couldn't help wondering whether SJP's shoe rack got burgled or something, from Manolos and Jimmy Choos to this, she sure is a girl of extremes or is it that she is playing the wife of an i-banker who just got fired?
