Anna Wintour Front Row Seat at Donna Karan Collection Fashion Show
Born in 1980, David Gandy was at university studying marketing when his housemate suggested he entered a modelling competition on ITV’s This Morning. He thought they were joking - but they entered it for him behind his back and he went on to win, bagging himself a contract with Select Models.
He want to promote great dressing for men that, he says, “shouldn’t be difficult”. “Men are still quite scared of the connotations of looking gay, even in 2010,” he says. “But dressing well can be easy. You don’t have to buy a suit from the most expensive labels - you can pick one up from Zara or Marks & Spencer and for an extra $30 or $50 you could have it tailored to fit you perfectly - and nothing really looks better than a tailored suit. And because we’re limited to jeans, T-shirts and suits, it’s important to be confident with accessories to look good.”
That’s all for now, catch you later!
I WOULD EAT THESE IN A HEART-BEAT! :D No, not really, I don’t like pastries like that. Actually, not at all! Maybe my triple-chocolate cake but just because it looks really fancy and fashionable! Don’t ask how a cake can be fashionable because it can be if you try just hard enough! ;)
I have to clean my room, ugh! Have to clean it one more time so that in 10 days when I get my new issue of Vogue I will have to rearrange everything AGAIN so I can fit more pictures on my walls and shelf’s! LOL

How is orange for you? With Spring right around the corner, what will you wear? How will you exhibit yourself, and give your prospective about this year’s orange trend’s? Also, stripes have always been essential of any given spring season, but it seems that this year — stripes will be the essential focal point of many outfits!
4 Main Points to look at when you are getting ready to compose your outfits for Spring 2011:
- 70’s Glamour
Remember the waist-high pants, and the flowing bohemian’s? When it comes down to it remember dresses that fall like shimmering water. It is all about the waist so ladies that means belts, which you can pair up or combine them two to three at a time. This can turn a simple white boyfriend shirt with a flowing skirt into an outfit to remember and to impress. Also, lace clothing as less allover, but with more unique takes, think of it as not an accessory but as the piece itself like lace skirts and dresses. The idea behind the lace is to be romantic but not over-girly and to be sensual but not over-suggestive!

- Biker Clothing
From Military 2000-2010 to Biker 2010-???? to when? A century with Biker clothing and accesories? In my opinion Biker can only be stretched out so long, and then it will diminish into accessories only. It’s been good having you military, but it is now to move on and let that trend living in your shadow shine! It’s all about the coat now! Bring it on! We can already hear those biker motors raving and roaring!

- Punk Fashion
This essential would be carried over from last year, this year’s Punk Fashion will not be the focal point, but an element or an influence to your look. Having said that the Punk look is something you can’t afford to get wrong or to get confused on in the morning. The zippers, the pins, the safety pins, all contribute to the look, but don’t wear it as your main ‘course’ wear it as a side ‘dish’! Have the influence be on the shirt or the coat, but never both like we saw last year! Take the example below, from Balmain Spring/Summer 2011, you can see the safety pins on the shirt, and the zippers on the pants which looks great! Notice that the coat softens the look; furthermore, the heels make it again look softer and more feminine.
- The 60’s Ladylike
The Hour-Glass design? Remember the feminine lady-like curves and silhouettes of the 50’s and 60’s, well there back and with a strong return. For Spring 2011, the 60’s means fresh colours, such as orange, prints and light summery fabrics.
