Designer Daze: Alice & Olivia

Alice & Olivia
Fall 2011 Presentation
The Plaza Hotel

Located at the legendary Plaza Hotel, Alice & Olivia shared their Fall 2011 collection. On my way to the second floor, the elevator acted as a time machine and landed me back to the 1930s.. or was it the 70s? The doors slid open and instantly I was invited to an elegant ballroom party, filled with glamorous models dressed to the nines in popular period pieces like 1930s flapper inspired mini-dresses... to 1940/50s tweed jackets, sweetheart necklines and fur details... to 1970s inspired jumpsuits and platform heels. Along with this fashion flashback, I thoroughly enjoyed how the warm retro color combinations laid with the delicate beaded accents on a hem or sleeve. The music selection could only aide the time warp by playing everything from doo-wop tunes to Michael Jackson hits. 

The overall presentation lead me to believe that the woman who dons Alice & Olivia... 
is truly one 'Sophisticated Lady'.

Style Icon: Grace Kelly

Fendi, Spring 2011

Oscar de la Renta, Spring 2011

Grace Kelly will always be a personal favorite of mine. She lived the life every girl dreamed of... model... turned movie star... turned real-life princess. She was everything. She captivated audiences all over the world with her memorable acting, stunning beauty and down-to-earth charm. She held her own in the fashion world and with these Spring 2011 looks above, its as close as we can get to the real deal. Her infamous classic style will forever be remembered- as will her natural Grace.
