The Simply Luxurious Life®: Friday Favorites

Friday Favorites

This past week has been a busy week in the fashion world – from the latest collections being paraded down the catwalks in Paris, to the unveiling of many of the top fashion magazines’ August covers.

Here are a few of my favorite looks from this past week and links to view the entire collection, editorial, article, etc. 

Christian Dior – Haute Couture – Fall 2010

 Alexis Mabille – Haute Couture – fall 2010

 Valentino (Pier Paolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri) – Haute Couture – Fall 2010

 Gisele Bundchen for Muse Magazine

The annual Age Issue of Vogue pops with Gwyneth Paltrow, photographed Mario Testino, on the August cover.  Gwyneth, preparing to launch a cookbook she has written (released next spring) titled My Father’s Daughter, poses in her downtown Manhattan apartment.  In a handful of shots she is seen over the stove making one or two of the recipes from the aforementioned cookbook.  The light, white aesthetic of her home would be something I would be thrilled to come home to at the end of the day.  It just appears as if it would be a place to lift your burdens.  Have a look at all the images by clicking on the photo above.

For best presentation, Karl Lagerfeld does it again as the Chanel haute couture collection was presented this past week.


My absolute favorite from this week was Elie Saab’s Haute Couture Fall 2010 collection – elegant, rich and intoxicatingly gorgeous.

To be honest, I find myself taking less notice of fashion these days as I scramble to pull the house together. But, although I'd never wear it, I absolutely love that simple layered red dress.

Heather -- neither did I! Lovely post... *sigh* I get lost in looking at fashion, and most especially this kind...

I hope you have a fantastic weekend :)
