The Italian Job. Forget the fact that Margareth Made (pronounced Mah-Day) is so beautiful that you literally stop thinking for a moment. Really, forget that and pay attention! And never mind that she portrayed a young Sophia Loren who herself, at age seventy-five, plays her own moher in a biopic filmed in 2009. Keep your eyes peeled for this young talented actress in the very near future. Oh, and she's Sicilian too! Just listen to her speak in this interview and try not to be too mesmerized. Ciao!

I am a big fan of this collection. Prada, along with handful of other designers has indeed decided that Fashion for Spring, and hopefully fashion period, should and wil be fun! The bold prints and Curious George motifs really evoke freshness and sophisticated whimsey. But's it's not all monkeys and bananas. Miuccia Prada has made sure to mix up the daytime walk around town look with cool, beautiful suits that feature strong but not overpowering colors. And lets pray that we see women rocking those Prada shoes too. They are spectacular.
In summation: PRADA ROCKS!

I hate to use the term "classic" to described Ralph Lauren's Spring 2011 RTW collection but what eles can one say? Lauren's ability to redeifne American nostalgia and put it's best foot forward is his signature. He makes us long for a time when the country had gotten it's legs under it and was running full steam ahead. It's top hat and tails, William Powell and Myrna Loy, dog eared copies of Henry Fielding ,old school college fraternities and all things preppy and privileged. Idealized for sure. But we love it nonetheless.
So for me Lauren's clothes never get old. They are are expertly designed, flawlessly presented and absolutely beautiful. His collection here featured elements not of the old West but boomtown, oil rich ,cattle baron West. And who else can pull of Victorian lace without looking dated and a bit corny? It's Annie Get Your Gun but show up for cocktails later. Hats off to Ralph Lauren for another exceptional line. www. thehypearound.blogspot.com
