Fashion is Everywhere - Check you Neighborhood

Stay tune for those of you following me! Once again fashion week is just around the corner, or should I say next week (February 7). I am so excited to see what New York is going to offer this season. By the way, they are presenting their Fall/Winter 2013-2014 collections. Also, as designers are showing their collection, several of them will start displaying their recent Spring/Summer 2013 collection for regular buyers to purchase them; you know, since were not celebrities, who have already worn them since seasons ago. This will be my first time writing full-time reviews and editing pictures to format collages, since I don't want to make my posts three pages long full of pictures, or cause the blog to crash. On the side note, I am still learning how to manage different photo editing tools. I am not that great handling those tools yet.  SMEKDB2DNSZ7

Don't forget to follow, because I will constantly be updating new reviews for the whole month of fashion week. I will try my hardest to be on task, making sure reviews are fresh from the oven, as they would say. 


Where's Your Gold Capri's Girl?

Fashion Collage - Printed Pants

As you know, Fashion week is almost here! As everyone is getting their invitations ready, having your best outfit shot by photographers is a must. Getting a picture taken has to be inspirational and eye catching. There are two things you should have in mind when packing up: prints and vibrant colors should become your best friend when it comes to fashion.

When choosing what to pair with prints, make it enjoyable! Remind yourself you’re a young child when it comes to dressing up. Don’t stress out too much over an outfit, because people will notice you’re trying too hard to impress. The more you have fun with what you decide to combine, the more intriguing it’ll be. Strive for the “Eye Candy of the Day,” as Wendy Williams would state .SMEKDB2DNSZ7

You could take for example the gold printed pants from J.Crew. The nude shoes with neon straps became the color scheme of our outfit. Why? Simply, the pants had enough statement to speak about – it was a matter of playing around with another scheme. Color doesn’t have to be your only alternative. Opting for different fabrics and textures gives uplift to your style.

Remember: Set your mind as a young child who’s experimenting with what she’ll wear, and work it!

Model Kitchen by Cesar Casier - This Healthy Tips May be What You Were Looking For?

Cesar Casier Model Kitchen Book

Model Kitchen sounds interesting, no? I mean, who doesn't want to look slim and built, and overall feel like a model? I do! This book has very tasteful images of various healthy foods you can prepare. They seem like the food you would think most models would eat to stay fit. It does look very informative, easy, and healthy. I'd have to read it completely to find out if it's just one of those other regular cooking books who simply tweak small things to make it sound fascinating. I'm sorry, but I do believe you won't get the looks of model Cesar Casier, who wrote the book.If this book made both of this miracles, I doubt publishers would have a brake from printing out millions of copies (I may have exaggerated a tiny bit).

Anyhow, I'm actually going to try cooking meals from this book, and writing down my progress. Yes, I will also exercise more. My main goal is to get leaner this year before I start college, compared to how I am right now - fat.

Meegs Fashion is Part of Run-way to Style

For some that may have been following the first domain blog, you are in the correct place. It was once Meegs Fashion, but changed recently to From:Run-way To:Style.

Being a Computer Geek Deserves Respect

The sunset is never to late to finish what you were doing

Hello everyone!

I hope you had a happy Tuesday. Today wasn't such a terrible day. I have to say I spent most of the hours trying to search for ways to change around the font size and links to connect to my menu bar. It was a pain in the butt, for I am not a computer geek. I literally spent about four hours trying to make sure all the links worked well, and overall change the "Read More" thing to what I had in my mind. It took some hard work (well, at least for me), but my blog is working how I had wanted it to work before.

 I still have some tweaks I need to make, for my bitchy computer gets an attitude every once in a while (Stupid Bitch). This is a main reason I have decided to possibly switch to an iMac, which I guess will be more convenient. I'm still in debate, whilst my camera seems to be malfunctioning too. Canon is in my list. I'm going to blame it on the camera for taking bad photos, but maybe its just me who doesn't know shit about it. 

Stay tune. I will be begin posting pictures about my outfits soon. I just have to research some more to learn how to edit professionally my shots. Honestly, I may be behind updating my posts, but I have to briefly master photo editor (Gimp). Why? Well, I have less than a week to get prepared for New York Fashion Week! By this time, I should be able to ball my editing skills. I Hope So!

P.S.: I have wanted to have a section of inspired street style looks, but I want them to be original (about you). If you would like to participate, you could send me your outfit of the day (men or women) to my e-mail so that I could post your looks to inspire others who visit. I adore creativity! If you have any other ideas you would like to see on my blog, contact me, and I'll be please to provide you with an answer.

Jennifer's Lawrence Wardrobe Malfunction. Was It Done on Purpose?

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Spring 2013 Haute Couture
Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Spring 2013 Haute Couture

Jennifer Lawrence struck us in this navy Dior Spring 2013 Couture piece. We could tell she had her game on, wearing a couture piece fresh off the runway (literally - the presentation was just last week). Rachel Zoe, who we believe is her stylist, did an excellent job dressing Lawrence on a last minute schedule. Apparently, Jennifer wasn't planning on attending the awards. A curious note is is that for the past few awards she's become very loyal to Dior. The dress seemed to be altered differently with a tail running longer from the original dress, but it was not a huge difference to not know who she was wearing. She took away the night with her supposedly wardrobe malfunction, which was not really a malfunction. It was part of the design the dress came with. The split called for more attention not only for Jennifer Lawrence, but for the brand itself (Dior and Raf Simons). The make-up and jewelry chosen to pair with this beauty gave life to the dress. Jennifer Lawrence, as usual, was wearing the dress, whilst Raf Simons should be enjoying his triumphs he’s been bringing to the “New and Modern” Dior. Cheers for both (three with stylist included).

Oscar de la Renta's Spring 2013 Ad Campaign: A small slit does not harm a lady

Oscar de la Renta Spring/Summer 2013 Ad
Oscar de la Renta Spring/Summer 2013 Ad Campaign

Oscar de la Renta, who is known for designing dresses for very refined political women, turned spring into a flirtatious lady full of colors and laces. If anyone wants to feel respected and filthy powerful, Mr. de la Renta is your best choice to go after. Perhaps, this would be the main reason why such respected political women, to even Anna Wintour are loyal followers of this gentleman. Its spring 2013 campaign captures a more youthful yet classical (chic) lady we'd see at a coffee shop with her friends. But who knows, maybe it's just her secret weapon from her other provocative side.

Christian Dior's Spring 2013 Couture: Who Is the Princess of Nature Now?

Christian Dior's Spring 2013 Couture Presentation
Christian Dior's Spring 2013 Couture Presentation

If Raf Simons’ element last couture season were flowers, he showed us just how powerful of a weapon his nature theme could be de nouveau for Dior’s spring 2013 Haute Couture presentation. I fell so connected to this collection, that it gave me goose bumps (in the best of ways though). 

The setting at Dior, and the music made me plunge into a deep dream that reminded me of the more mature, seductive side of Alice in Wonderland. The beauty of the clothes spoke for themselves, for they even took away the unexpected life of the decaying trees set along their paths, to be injected into every single one of those treasures. It all seemed masterfully minded, such as embroidery pieces which were crafted luxuriously well from the tree’s stems and vibrant flowers to be bloomed on coats, dresses, and tops. The pastel colored numbers incorporated with the Anne Hathaway haircut, elevated the passionate mood swing of the Dior lady I’ve been fond of. Shoes also had a prevailing metallic touch that felt needed for this collection, which looked of high standards with those neon colored leggings. There were dresses that could have been an effortless top for many, but for me it was part of the mood swing Simons was portraying. I felt everything was intended to be part of this wonderful story I experienced.

For a couture show, pieces appeared appropriate for a modern clientele. Now that the Oscar’s ceremony is around the corner, I wouldn't be shocked if someone were to wear a dress from Raf Simons’ Dior couture collection. I am really curious to know if there is any actress who has a surprise waiting for us, because you do know this is "couture."

John Galliano's Return to the Fashion World

John Galliano, who was once the head designer for Dior, is set to return back to the industry he belongs – fashion of course. In the mid of 2011, he was fired for a racial comment he had made at a French café. Many believed he wouldn’t ever make it back to the fashion industry, but Friday morning there was a surprise for everyone. Oscar de la Renta announced he would have John Galliano assisting him in his studio for the next few weeks that are left of his New York Fashion Week preparations. We are thrilled to see Galliano’s comeback, which we hope is for a long time.

A black and white campaign couldn’t be any better for Balenciaga to say goodbye to Nicholas Ghesquière's last collection. Perfection was shown throughout the ads. It doesn’t take long to recognize the luxurious textures and patterns that set life to this devoted collection we’ll keep as a memory of Ghesquière’s final work at the house. Alexander Wang has skin tight shoes to fill up in this upcoming position he’ll be presenting at Balenciaga’s Fall/Winter 2013-2014 collection next month.

Best Dressed List at The Critic's Choice Awards 2013 Ceremony

There were some who quite didn't know what they were doing, and there were others who knew their secret weapon. From patterns, colors, and deep v-neck cuts, there were lots to talk about. Below we give you some of the women (stars) who brightened the red carpet.

Stars Who Didn't Shine at The Critic's Choice Awards Red Carpet

The People’s Choice Awards red carpet yesterday was full of statement trenders and well……horrible mistakes. As usual, not everyone is pleased as what celebrities wear when walking a red carpet. There’s always got to be that person who really didn’t make it to the best dressed list. Below, we give you some of the stars who didn’t shine at all. Poor Them.

Hedi Slimane's Saint Laurent Paris Mystical Hats

Saint Laurent Paris Spring/Summer 2013 Brimmed Hat Shown in Runway

Hedi Slimane’s reinvention of the Yves Saint Laurent house (or Saint Laurent Paris as it is called now) was probably one the most debated runways of the entire season. We could say it was the most talked about than Mr. Raf Simons’ debut for Christian Dior. For a fashionista who is fully devoted to fashion ought to know Hedi presented elements of the true Saint Laurent it once was. Stefano Pilati didn’t bring a horrible taste to the brand, but there were some magic touches needed; maybe it was those small detailed codes. Besides Slimane’s clothes, accessories (witch hats as we could simple refer to), inundated major fashion magazines. These hats may not be your cup of tea, but were very well fit for editorials. Take a look at some of Saint Laurent Paris pieces used in editorials.

Gucci's Pre-Fall 2013 50's Forecast. A Contemporary Femme Fatale.

Gucci Pre-Fall 2013 Femme Fatale
Gucci Pre-Fall 2013
 Frida Giannini was one of the first to present her new pre-fall 2013 collection for Gucci. Pure luxury, for which Gucci is symbolic of, was well stated here.  Silhouettes fit close to the body embraced the femme fatale Giannini was indulging. A passionate teal dress paired with a belt simply couldn’t be any more luxurious coming from Gucci.  Colors spoke intensely. Small doses of cheetah prints were about the most provocative we saw in this passionate collection. We even experienced an oversized gray coat we weren't expecting here from. Perhaps upcoming mother Giannini wanted to portray her tender feelings through this presentation. 70s took a break to be replaced by the romantic 50s. We are eager to see if Frida Giannini will take along her femme fatale interpretation into Gucci’s Fall/Winter 2013-2014 collection next month.

Spring/Summer 2013 Trends - 10. Digital Prints de Nouveau

Prabal Gurung Spring/Summer 2013 bloody widow dress
Prabal Gurung Spring/Summer 2013

Digital Prints are a subject of major concern for women. Would I look heavy? Would I look like a clown? Those are some questions many ask to themselves, restraining them from purchasing a statement item. Yes, prints are a subject you should wear with precaution. A print dress says enough, so why add more accessories? Here we present you some of dresses designers introduced for their spring/summer 2013 collection.

Designers brought digital prints to a whole different level this season. We could state to the max in what matters concern. Prabal Gurung’s bloody widow prints presented a dark atmosphere we weren’t familiar with when it came to prints. Delicate flowers dripping ink symbolized that inspiration Prabal was seeking towards. Peter Pilotto has become one of the best print designer brands in the fashion industry. Celebrities are always caught wearing one of their designs, and for spring it was obvious it would get even better. Ruffles, peplum, and fabric choice made the most ultra forward fashion piece one should have in their wardrobe. Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough at Proenza Schouler offered one of their finest digital photoprints ever. They made sure to stay at the top of the season with these images of crowd scenes detailed with colored studs and silver grommets at the hem. Is there any other designer who introduced this as well, because we can’t remember any one else? Mary Katrantzou also took the crème de la fleur (or however you say it) with her Asian inspired stamps. We thought it was an appealing play on prints. We would have wished there were some naughty prints as well. Do you have any comments on these designer prints?

Spring/Summer 2013 Trends - 9. Naughty Sheer

Emilio Pucci Spring/Summer 2013
Emilio Pucci Spring/Summer 2013

Sheer is one of the most worn fabrics around our city in the summer, but as clear and transparent as the runway, we yet to seek for one. Designers proved how naughty sheer can become if used correctly. Sheer was all about seduction, authority, and femininity for the spring collections. As you may have remembered from our past posts, spring/summer 2013 should be all about seduction. Emilio Pucci, an Italian house known for prints, presented various designs of sheer. Pants, dresses, and tops were all present in this collection. Prints, which were what we expected, were seen very rarely, as Peter Dundas decided to take an unusual route like other designers. The collection was not as bad as we thought it may have been. Franciso Costa at Calvin Klein gave us one of the most sexual collections the brand had presented. Each dress brought attention at the bust with kinky designs. The play of construction and lengths were the main elements. Stella McCartney’s athletic dresses could not have been left behind as well. Her dresses marked attitude and style. Valentino’s black sheer sleeve and lace embroidered dress below was a remarkable treasure we couldn’t let go of. Akris presented a collection that should be in the minds of several street style ladies preparing for next months fashion shows. If anyone wanted to play with sheer, Akris took the crown in their ninety-one piece collection. We have a question. Would you be willing to wear an item from the Akris spring/summer 2013 collection?

Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2013 Ad - How Lustful Can Miu Miu Become?

Miu Miu Spring 2013 Ad Campaign
Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2013 Advertisement Campaign

Miu Miu’s Spring/Summer 2013 ad campaign was no doubt pure eroticism. Every shot provoked lust and temptation. Adriana Lima and Doutzen Kroes were two supermodels booked for the story, but model Bette Franke was the protagonist in this voluptuous campaign. Miuccia knew how to choose the perfect fabrics and cuts to give life to this well deserved setting. The silk bed lining and chromatic colors of the clothes spoke for themselves, not forgetting the models poses which gave away the whole inspiration. The gloves, taffeta outfits, denim skirt, and slipper dresses were perfect. It was all a tactic game that even on Miu Miu’s runway was already thought of. In my opinion, I believe this is one of the best stories told so far for a spring/summer 2013 collection advertisement. We’ll have to wait to see if other important brands can beat this lustful campaign. What are your thoughts towards these ads?
