Floppy Felt Fedora

Our must have accessory continuing into FALL is a new wave of floppy and felt fedoras. The look comes courtesy of fashionistas on the streets of LA! They have perfected and transitioned the accessory from summer sun shield to fall. It is a wide-brimmed hat, but also floppy and femme. It is a fedora, but bigger and wider. It is a '60s sun hat, but sturdier. Really..it resembles a Stetson, but also not. I love magic and this little accessory is exactly that - it can transform your outfit into much more.

Tom Ford as usual..drama and exclusivity - we ♥ it regardless!






Unimaginable as it may seem although we all seem obsessed with the guy..most have not seen his movie, “A Single Man”. SPOILER ALERT!! The ending is terrible and I absolutely hate sad endings. I'mI'm a bit flustered as this is what stories of Tom Ford does to me.

Anyway, Tom is being Tom and he has maniacally plotted his inescapable well- received return down to the last celebrity he has chosen to walk the runway. The show is reminiscence of an old couture Chanel show, where he describes the outfit as the celeb-model twirls. Everything old is new?! 

Ford’s extraordinary was held in his men’s store on Madison Avenue before an audience of perhaps 100 editors. He had thought out every detail of the clothes and accessories, not least the kind of women whose glamour and personalities would express his ideas about dressing.

As said he narrated the show, with a touch of camp, calling out the name of each woman and then giving a lively, detailed description of her outfit. Though there had been rumors that Julianne Moore and some other well-known women would be in the show, I don’t think anyone in the audience expected such a dazzling cast. In addition to Ms. Moore, he had Beyoncé Knowles, Emmanuelle Seigner, Lauren Hutton, Rita Wilson, Rachel Feinstein, Marisa Berenson, Daphne Guinness, Lisa Eisner, Farida Khelfa, Lou Doillon, as well as quite a few supers, including Joan Smalls, Liya Kebede, Amber Valletta, Daria Werbowy, and Stella Tennant. 

Apparently each looked breathtaking..we wouldn't know. Only Editors were invited - EPIC!!! Pics are not out until December. Obviously Tom will try to debut this as a mini movie (as he also moonlights as a Director). The New York Times reported that the outfits were the height of glamour — sharp pantsuits in black silk or a leopard pattern, gorgeous black evening clothes with sheer blouses, corsets and maybe a shrug in shredded tulle, impeccable details like hammered gold jewellery, stilettos with ankle ties and seamed black stockings. The technique was perceptibly Tom Ford, statuesque, feminine, elegant and with that big-time sense of fashion.
