spring 2010 ready-to-wet-your-knickers

posted by:  audra

oh my god, how i’ve missed style.com!  seriously, i haven’t even been looking at stuff…that’s how pathetic i’ve been.  and today?  i went through all  the spring 2010 ready-to-wear collections.  some were way disappointing, like marchesa.  ugh.  and then i read that irving penn, one of my favorite-favorite photographers, and certainly one of the most well-respected fashion photogs EVER has bitten the dust at age 92. 

let’s take a moment of silence for mr. penn.

okay!  that’s enough…now onto the fashion.  there are a lot of limbs gone out on for spring, and i’m not sure which ones are good, and which ones are not so good…yet. 

alexander mcqueen spring 2010 ready-to-wear

i ALWAYS love, love alexander mcqueen.  this collection surprised me a bit; very reptilian-ethereal-alien-wrapped-in-ectoplasm.  i didn’t watch the show, but i can only pray to baby jesus that the church’s ‘reptile’ was the runway music!  and i looove the black pieces towards the end…i die for the very last black dress.

john galliano spring 2010 ready-to-wear

man, i looooove  me some john galliano.  i do.  i could eat him.  i’m not sure how i feel about this collection though….it’s sort of rummage-sale-secretary-costumey-chic had a baby with edie beale.  but i like it…?  kinda?  these were some of my favorites…

wunderkind spring 2010 ready-to-wear

i’ve never been crazy about wunderkind…i think it’s only the name that i don’t like.  i’ve never given it a chance, but it caught my eye this time.  style.com wasn’t wild about this collection, but i think designer wolfgang joop did a bang-up job in black & blue…

you know i have a weakness for anything black, but i think these are truly beautiful.  would maybe be better with some plain, old, opaque black tights or some wide-fenced fishnets…?  but, whatever…i totally feel better now!  sweet fashion dreams, my loves!

i realize everyone’s probably getting sick of fashion posts…even i am just a little bit…but sometimes it’s just too good to pass up, right?  anyway, i haven’t even been at home on the weekends long enough to turn on the oven.  what’s a girl to do?  i’m pulling a warhol:  it’s easy.  fashiony things are easy.  something food related next week.  i promise.  in the meantime…

christian dior spring 2009 couture collection.  so gorge.  bless john galliano!  he’s been the grands couturier for dior since 1996.  i love dior, & i’ve been obsessed with john galliano since i was about 12 after watching him on fashion televison.  my mom gave me an exquisite[ly big] book on christian dior’s early work for christmas, & this stuff galliano designed looks a lot like the young material dior was churning out in the late 1940s.  i love them.  so glamorous, regal…and prommy — in a good way.  there are belts cinched in at the (real) waist; i live for these.  there are yards & yards of silky, delicious fabrics.  and there are hats.  big, gaudy, glamorous hats…with crimped hair! a-fucking-men.  i’m heating up my crimper right this very second…

i love this one; very modern technicolor eye with the crimped hair, but sort of 1800’s victorian inspired gown.  so pretty:

if i had to get married over again & had an extra hundred grand or so lying about, dying to be spent, this is what i would wear:

loves this.  i wanna wear it to the orangette book signing:

i just love the color of this, even if the shape wasn’t as amazing at it is…someday i will have walls this color:

i’m not even that wild about blue, especially a blue this shade, but i think this is so lovely:

i want this; i’d totally wear it to work:

there.  i think i’m runway’d out for now(!).  food.  next week.  i promise.
