Last on the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week roaster but certainly not least. I had the privilege of working with The Blonds team for their Spring 2011 show and let me just say mission well executed. A fun and exciting show is always my NYFW icing on the cake! So with the tornado at its peak and pouring rain in the NYC streets I made my way to Milk Studios in the Meat Packing District (directly across the DVF store) to work The Blonds. This post may be somewhat biased but I’m pretty sure that you would agree with me when I say that these corsets are too die for! Here is The Chic Report’s long overdue “Chic Pick” post. Jewels, sequins, pearls are just a few gommettes used to create a dazzling embellished pieces as seen in the photos.
Selita ripped that runway! (Oh and did I mention we rode the elevator together? Such a sweetheart)
This is my look and the model that I worked with. p.s… I really didn’t think her breasts would show! She’s wearing a black sheer turtle neck underneath. And ofcourse black patent leather Louboutins. Just imagine the storm of orgasmic sighs backstage…
Phillipe Blond on the runway.
What an exciting show!

If you don’t know these designers by now, then get familiar. The Blonds are currently house hold names in the fashion industry and their spiky, dazzling designs are customary chic. For those of you who haven’t seen Sex and the City 2 this is not a review but what I am going to say is this; despite the mixed reviews, if you’re reading this post then you should go to see the movie. Who cares if critics are raving about the story line? We’ve seen season upon seasons of this polished upscale New York City life, estranged relationships, gay/ straight sex scenes and we’ve all been yearning for the fireworks between Carrie and Mr Big, it happened. The materialism aka the fashion has a huge part to play in the success of Sex and The City and it was undeniably well executed. Kudos to Patricia Fields (wardrobe designer) and her team. Sparky harem pants, louboutins, vintage trains/ turbans? SATC2 is a fashionistas fairytale worth seeing. So in the film the four girlfriends went away to Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) and if you look below Samantha is wearing a red dress with a plunging neckline as well as the signature statement spiky shoulder made by Phillipe and David designers of the “The Blonds”. I had the pleasure of working The Ecco Domani show last season where this designer’s work was featured and I must say his runway pieces weigh tons! Very glamourous eye candy.
