Wowza!! I must say this starlet has been impressing everyone lately with her wardrobe choices and I , myself, cannot help but do double takes. From the fashion blogs, red carpets, magazine covers to television commercials, promos to the fierce streets, Drew just simply exudes radiance. Her quirky personality yet charming sense of humor shines through and through. Or could it be that golden ombre 'do she can pull off so well? The repeat use of those gray and taupe YSL pumps? All the while, Drew still manages to consistently keep her signature romantic-vintage to boho, rebel-chic styles her own. Whatever it may be, this sweet lady is most definitely getting her kudos from the hard to please fashion police!

walk, walk, fashion baby

(I DIE. My fave!)

(Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2010 Collection)

As I indulge into my now Tuesday night tradition, which consist of my late night sashimi & a new Rachel Zoe Project episode, I can't help but tear up. Last night's episode was truly an emotional one. The episode was merely an homeage to celebrate Mr. Lee McQueen also known to everyone as Alexander McQueen. One of history's most epic visionaries is gone forever. But, this post is not meant to be a somber one. Just another to add to the many collections of millions celebrating the legacy this unforgettable designer left behind.

 After that heart-wrenching episode, I then glanced to the corner of my bedroom floor and spot my Christian Siriano's out the corner of my eye. Instantly I caught myself smiling. Suddenly a huge rush comes over and I make a mad dash to my computer. You know that feeling when you spot that amazing shoe in a shoe store and find out the last pair in stock is your size which then determines that the purchase was meant to be? Exactly. A fashion-gasm! As, I'm pulling up his last collection, here it came again and again. Waves of fashion-gasms just kept coming over me.

I've posted just some my faves above and below from his Pre-Fall and Ready to Wear Fall 2010 Collection. Where does he get his inspiration? The rich, luxurious colors. It's like every garment was purposely meant to be poetry in motion. The depth and dimension the opulent metallic threading along with the intricate placements of draping is nothing less than BRILLIANT! And that might even still be an understatement.

R.I.P. Lee Alexander McQueen
You will be forever loved and missed.

I Like it Rough.

I don't know about anyone else but personally,  nothing screams "S-E-X-Y" on the female form than having that perfect balance between feminine structure and strong, masculine-like details.
Metal hardware + lace + frills galore...oh my!

These two models most definitely did these lingerie-inspired frocks justice. Who says you can't look uber-glam while frolicking through the desert sands?
