COUTURE MAKE-UP STORIES


Hello my dear fashion friends! I have always loved make up. It is the best and easiest way to glam up your look. Who could resist red blodded lips in the middle of a day or that perfect eyeliner game on the eyes at the night. In today´s post I will say few characteristic topics when it comes to haute couture make-up.

Like in haute couture in general, where everything is possible in expression sense, make-up is not different in any kind of a way. I really love to watch haute couture runway shows just to see all the magic going on the models´ faces. And that beauty magic is glorious, you have to admit.

Everything is so over proportions, big and dramatic reds´ sensations on the lips and eyelids. Or bold eyeliners creating the perfect geometric shapes. If  a make-up designer is even more inspired he uses small pieces of lace on the eyelashes making that perfect couture eye swing. Glitter is also very often used texture on the eyes or lips too. As you can see, even in the case of make-up sky is the limit. And that is one more reason why I adore haute couture.

What do you think about make-up of haute couture? Do you like it?

Thank you for the attention!

SUMMER COUTURE VIBES


Hello my fashion people! As summer is knocking on the door I have decided in today´s post to say few impressions about summer inspirations in haute couture. Haute couture is perfect mode to channel the most elegant and romantic ensembles inspired by summer. And I think there is no better combination than high fashion expression incorporated in hot, vibrant summery whisp.

When talking about summer in haute couture we can see that the choice of materials and textures is very important. A flowy and airy flare is a must, so the light silky dresses are perfect incoropration of summer sense in haute couture.

When talking about appliques there are innumoerous details that can be showed at the materials; big flowery prints, or big and bigger drafts of butterflies, dots or finest embroidery..all of that is so delicate and gentle perfectly reminding us on the most beautiful summer nights.

Colorations are important too. No heavy and dark shades, just pastel and warm tones to set up the perfect round up or any haute couture summer gear. Any fashionista would enjoy in them. So that is why I am giving you some inspirations to "couturize" your summer outfits to bring haute couture in your life for best summer of your life!

What do you think about summer vibes in haute couture? Do you find them interesting? thank you for your attention!

HAUTE COUTURE, AVANTGARDE!


Hello my fashion friends! In today´s post I will share some of my impressions about connection between haute couture and avantgarde. Avantgarde is known like a decade in culture and art history but we can reffer it also like a style indicator. When artistic expression is a head from it´s time then we can talk about avantgarde influences or tendecies.

Haute couture is perfect mode to experiment with avantgarde and all of what it presents. Because haute couture has very artistic vibe there are lots of space for experiments in that kind of direction. In that case haute couture looks more like an art piece, with more depth in visual sense, so many of these design we can for sure observe like an exponents in museum of art.

The imagination is only limit when talking about avantgarde influences in haute couture. To craft that kind of design you don´t need expensive materials, you can use plastic or metal for example, forming the most decadent but gorgeous ensembles.

For me personally this segment of haute couture is the most stunning way to design. When expression is so strong, a head from our time, making our fashion horizons even more wide and open, I can´t imagine anything more beautiful than that. So, haute couture avantgarde!! Just keep walking in unknown spaces of aesthetic fields making them glorious pieces of our time!

What do you think about avantgarde expression i9n haute couture? Do you like it or you like more wearable designs?

Thank you for your attention!

HAUTE COUTURE IN EVERYDAY LIFE


Hello my fashion people! In today´s post I will talk about ways how we fashionistas can incorporate haute couture in everyday life. I know this sounds like a big oxymoron but if you take an inspiration from couture you will have extravagant and elegant look, no doubt.

Of course we all know haute couture ensembles are very, very expensive. Even Hollywood stars can´t afford it, that´s why they rent them and at the same time they promote the designer which gown they wear, so you have win-win situation. We all, who are that (un)lucky not to be famous A-celebrities and don´t have opportunity to pose on the red carpets, we can be star of our own street walk if we take an inspiration from couture looks. So here are few of my suggestions!

1.) There is no better way to get dramatic couture vibe if you wear voluminous dress with thousands of chiffon layers. You can combine it with ordinary t-shirt and you will have great everyday look instantly.

2.) Or you can reach for delicate and rich textures like silk, organza featured in form of elegant top. To low-down the combination wear your favorite jeans and stilletos and there you go, you have perfectly glamorous everyday look.

3.) The right color can be a perfect haute couture booster in everyday life. Choose vibrant yellow or deep blodded red and be the star of the dull day.

4.) If you don`t want to experiment too much, that´s ok! Go for a glamorous piece of jewellry; statement pieces like necklace or amazing earrings can give a couture taste to any outfit.

5.) If you are make up lover you can be haute couture goddess if you play with your make up look. A little drama on the eyes in form of bold eyeshadow with strong eyeliner game, and you are set to go and be an instant couture lady.

6.) For those you are more braver, hair can be a great way to channel your inner everyday couture queen. Unusual hair cut, chic but feminine at the right time, and you are couture diva for sure. If you add to that an extraordinary color that better!

So as you can see my beautiful fashionistas, we all can incorporate a little whisp of couture crisp! :)
We just have to let ourselves to be inspired and have fun! Because fashion is all about that!

Please tell me, what do you think about getting inspired by haute couture in your everyday outfits? Do you like that idea and what are your suggestions on that topic?

Thank you for your attention!

HAUTE COUTURE INSPIRED BY BAROQUE


Hello my beautiful fashion fans! Hope you are doing great! Welcome to my new post! Today I will say few words about haute couture which has been inspired by baroque. Baroque is cultural and style period in west culture worldwide, which is known for its decadency and opulent style, with boosted ornaments in every artistic field you can imagine from poetry, painting, sculpture, architecture. There for baroque has been a constant inspiration for haute couture of our time.

When talking about the couture inspired by baroque, you can see drama all the way, in visual sense, exaggerations in so many fields like form (very wide and strongly accentuated down part featured by inevitable bustiers a.k.a corsets in upper part), colors (gold, black, red), texture (very heavy materials giving the sense of rich opulence). It is the festivity of couture for sure, giving it the historical input interpreted in modern way.


So many great designers of our time has created this themed couture, from Alexander McQueen giving it the dark, introspective crisp celebrating the "savage beauty".. Elie Saab who is known for making the most beautiful haute couture ensembles featured in "belle couture" range, has designed in baroque inspired spirit too, making the most glorious wedding dresses with very heavy but gorgeously outstanding expressions in design sense. As you can see, the range of designers is wide and even today baroque is big source of inspiration.

Tell me what do you think about haute couture inspired by baroque? Do you like it or you prefer more simple couture expressions?

Thank you for the attention!
