DVF Breaks All The Rules

So what New York designers featured on whites, pale nudes for Spring 2011. Diane von Furstenberg clearly didn't get that memo. And that's Okay. My favorite designer - the creator of the wrap dress - presented her Goddess collection to a tent full of glitzy fashion insiders Sunday afternoon. The who's who included Sarah Jessica Parker, Anderson Cooper, Vogue's Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington, Desiree Rogers, Barry Diller. But let's get back to the clothes. One might say this collection was among the season's most potent stars. Von Furstenberg's goddesses are super bold. Her signature one of a kind prints included scrolls and suns. The color palette included mustard yellows, turquoises and purples. Von Furstenberg's Goddeses didn't drip with classic column-like drapes, they wore rompers and gold lame gowns - with hoods. But there was at least some white, a glorious crepe, silk dress ankle length halter gown I know the love goddess Aphrodite take Queen Hera down for. Wouldn't you?

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
