What A spectacle
"Uhhh, wow!" Was pretty much the first thought in my head on seeing this... wonder of a dress. People who live in, or have visited London will be familar with the street entertainers in Covent Garden. With the amount of bronze on show here, Tyra reminds me of one the metallic 'statues' that are often posing around Covent Garden, but...I'm actually rather liking it! Don't get me wrong, I still think Roberto Cavalli is the Jordan of fashion, but its so blingtastic, I love it!
I'm anticipating this will recieve some very strong reactions! Also, what are your thoughts on her new fringe? I was too young to witness Tyra in her "prime", but for you 'older' bloggers (!) I want to know, did it ever happen? Because the way I see it, is that she was never a very classy model (Victoria's Secrets, anyone?) and was generally always second best to Naomi, who actually walked in top shows and that really it's now that she's raised more awareness of her ex 'model status' purely through ANTM...
Onto some other dresses that have caught my eye this week...
I've never seen Demi Moore as style icon material (and I'm not about to declare that she is now..) but she looks so fantastic, and so damn good for her age in this picture taken on Thursday. The YSL dress is genius, though whether she does it justice is still to be proven, but this is undoubtedly the best I've seen her looking of late.
Click here for a little peek (from Stylish Thought) at some of the other pieces from the YSL collection. Perhaps the 1980's paint splattered dunagrees (that my mum is always talking about...) are reviving themselves in a somewhat more acceptable form...
As much as I love Wayfarers, they've always come second place to Linda Farrows, in my opinion (so much so, that theres a LF post coming soon, so keep your eyes peeled...) so a picture of Sienna donning hers will trump a picture of Lindsay, Mary Kate, Kirsten, Nicole, Kate or Ashley (and quite frankly everyone else) in their Raybans anyday. What I particularly love about Sienna's get-up in these shots is that she seems to be relaxing back to her laidback summer look, which is what got everyone noticing her back in '04, yet this time, she's mixing things up with some modern touches, and so looses the folk (yawwwn) edge. The hair colour is looking so great on her at the moment, too.
I do, however feel sorry for Ms Miller, as she looks rather vulnerable and unhappy, and like she's running away from the paps and dashing to take shelter in her house. A big cheesy smile would have made the outfit so much sunnier, no?
>>So much more interesting than Wayfarers (which we're being told will be 'the' sunglasses of the summer. Yeah, whatever.) these square frames are also a lot more complimentary and generally more modern, I'm getting tired of the same trends and designs getting recycled every few years. If I see nautical or the fifties coming back anytime soon, I think I might just check myself into Promises.
