Diane Kruger's Mixed Media Chanel

My No. 5 pick is Diane Kruger's Chanel. This dress was a fashion gem. After Sunday night's dresses, I realized I'm partial to halters. My favorite part of this dress is the combinatin of textures. The pleated, halter bodice meshed beautifully with the sheered tulle center. Then the hem was slightly fishtailed into the pleated fabric again. The black ribbons separating each texture was unique, if not typical Chanel. Another good choice.

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.
