Those who got it right at MTV Video Music Awards

After reading Didem Antebi's post about those who got MTV's Video Music Awards (VMA) so horribly wrong, I wanted to see if anyone actually got it right. I think it was no coincidence that it was the models who rocked the right attitude. After all, they are constantly dressed in the flamboyant couture attires and thus, do not care for them much. So, they'd much rather rock the red carpet.

My favorite is Coca Rocha in Fausto Puglisi with her awesome new hair cut, followed by Joan Smalls who has accessorized that cool Viktor&Rolf dress with Casadei gladiator sandals and the right amount of gold . Erin Wasson on the other gets poins for provocation, though I had totally pictured this Alexandre Vauthier dress on Rihanna for the night.

Future Classic: Grid - Windowpane Print

Grid, or windowpane print, whatever you call it, has been strong for the past two seasons. It's a fresh clean and photography friendly look and I think it is here to stay as a future classic just like sailor stripes and polka-dots because it can be interpreted in so many different ways, colors, sizes, etc.  Below are some of my  favorites from various street style sources around the net. What do you think about this trend, is a future classic or already a passe?

Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2013

I have shared my adoration for Alexandre Vauthier's creations here before. He has once again hit my soft spot with his couture collection for Fall 2013. To me, most of his designs are timeless pieces that you can hang in a museum. While his dresses are ultra provocative and sexy, his sleek pants and pantsuits are just as so. I love the confidence that comes from the well-placed "slashes" in the most strategic places. Although there were some blue gowns with way too much embellishment on them, reimnding me of Balmain knock-offs, the clean lines of the rest of his collection make me overlook those few pieces. My favorite looks are below. I especially love the pantsuit in the second photo and the dresses in the fifth (my absolute favorite as it looks amazingly fresh) and the very last dresses.

Your Daily Horoscope from Valentino Fall 2013 Couture Collection

When it comes to Couture, Valentino is the epitome of craftsmanship with luxurious materials and meticulous processes. His latest Couture collection was no exception. While I was looking at the details, the miniadiueres (the mini evening clutches) were the pieces that striked me the most, so before the collection itself, I give you these beautiful mother of pearl clutches with gold Zodiac details. It's a shame I could not spot the Scorpio one. Did you see your sign?





Aquarius maybe?



There was also this one that I loved with red coral (I'm hoping it's fake, it must be fake as it would to be too fragile)
