Paris Fashion Week Round-up

Hello all,

It’s been a little while since we have spoken so I thought it would be great to do another round-up.

Paris Fashion Week was an amazing way to end this vibrant, politically charged, creative, thought-provoking season.

On my Instagram, I have been posting about my Paris Fashion Week Favourites but for this Round-Up, Let’s just start from the beginning!

Lanvin provided a visual feast that was palatable for all. Nothing too shocking or too out-there but so beautiful and classy. Classy and debonaire clothing is what Lanvin seems to do best.

Paco Rabanne – Usually my favourite for fragrance – dominating Fashion week!

2013 was the year that Chainmail died… well when creative director Julien Dossena did it, he brought it back. With asymmetrical cuts, off the shoulders, mid-lengths and draped material, Dossena breathed new life into this once old fad. The whole collection had a cohesive fun yet sophisticated look running throughout.

Up next: BALMAIN

Olivier Rousteing did it again. I can’t wait to see this collection at Red Carpets as well.

With dark patterns and prints, this collection has quickly become one that cannot be forgotten. The striking shapes and animal prints resemble that of a warrior woman. This whole collection draws from the beautiful strength of women and I have to say it is one of my favourite Balmain Collections to date.

Mugler maintained his trademark Angel-Bottle Star shape throughout his various designs.

The concept of deconstrcuted constellations ran throughout the whole collection whether that was in print, structure or design.

Now to one of my favourite designers of all time (As I always reiterate) Elie Saab!

This collection deserves the name Poetry In Motion. The beautifully exquisite dark romantisist theme brings the whole collection together making it wearable for the highstreet but still the brilliant and beautiful couture vibe that we all know and Love from Elie Saab.

H&M Studio put on a brilliant show feature The Weeknd performing and releasing his new line with H&M.

A show all about love, with interesting shapes and colours on the runway. A very fun runway show to watch and I’ sure it would have been fun to take part in too!

And lastly, we will end with something truly interstellar, Chanel!

So many amazing details at this show and what better way to end a show than having a rocket launch?

And that’s my Paris Fashion Week Round-up, I hope you enjoyed reading it and for more head to my social to find out my absolute favourites.

Victoryforu’s top 10 – American Music Awards

Here is a rundown of my favourite AMA looks:

10

Gigi in an off the shoulder lace dress from Roberto Cavalli

This is one of my least favourite of Gigi Hadid’s looks of the night, however, this Roberto Cavalli dress was definitely a brilliant start to a night of amazing outfits from Gigi Hadid.

9

Shawn Mendes always looks cool on the red carpet. This is not the best I have seen him look but I think that they outfit suits his relaxed personality. And besides, he has a whole music career ahead of him to experiment with different shades and textures. Shawn always wears darker colours well, I would just like to see him branch out a bit more.

8

This short and sweet number from Rocsi was an excellent style choice which was also easy for her to move around in and to do what she does best; Present!

7

Gigi in Embellished two-piece from Julien Macdonald - Hailey Baldwin also wore this in his spring 2017 show

Both Julien Macdonald looks were some of my favourites from his Spring 2017 show earlier this year and Gigi absolutely slayed both outfits.

6

Lady Gaga’s simple yet striking white outfit was truly brilliant but nothing in comparison to her voice. Her prior work with Tony Bennett really showcases the power and beauty of her voice.

5

This was the dress that everyone left remembering Gigi Hadid in. Why? Because it is so striking. From the colour to the cut, this is a dress that seriously brought the house down.

4

The ever beautiful Karlie Kloss looked effortlessly exquisite. And the hair flick in this video… This is why we call Karlie Kloss a Super Model!

3

I couldn’t decide with these two, I love their outfits from Zuhair Murad equally.

2

Her speech touched my heart and her dress made me smile. Even though this is a simple dress, She wore it with such elegance and such grace that she completely deserves this spot.

And my favourite outfit of the night was…

Hailee Steinfield

Elie Saab has done it again with another sensational design. I love everything about this romper, The colour, The sparkle, The shape, Everything!


Those are my top 10! Do you agree or disagree? Let me know below.

Stylish Christmas Jumpers and More

I was trawling through different fashion websites when I came across this article in Harper’s Bazaar UK – http://www.harpersbazaar.co.uk/christmas/news/g37307/christmas-jumpers-for-women-2016/ and I was inspired by a few of them so much that I had to write something.

Let’s start with Ladies’ Christmas Fashion:

Look 1

Found on Harper’s Bazaar UK Cable-knit sequinned jumper, £1,280, Emilio Pucci at Net-A-Porter

I love the embellishment on this Jumper. This could be worn with pretty much anything! All of the Jumpers could be worn with almost anything. I would style this Caable-knit jumper with Pink Tailored Cigarette trousers, A Leopard Print Coat and Navy Boot from Topshop.

London Fashion Week Videos

Disclaimer: All videos found on Youtube – I do not own them!

Enjoy!

When London Opened, it opened with an explosion of creativity. I will not lie, not everything was beautiful, unique or artistic in my eyes but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Please accept my opinions for what they are opinions and please feel free to share your thoughts below as well.

On day one, nothing really grabbed my attention. The designs were nice and there is no denying that, it just wasn’t something that interested me even though I appreciate the time, effort and technique that went into creating these designs.

Day two, for me, is when it all began to get interesting. My favourite designers were Julien Macdonald, Versus Versace and Gareth Pugh. Some of their designs will be featuring later on in my Victoryforu Picks segment.

Day three! The brilliant design of the runway for Anya Hindmarsh’s show was inspired. Topshop Unique has truly done it again creating something that is wearable and still very runway appropriate.  Definitely my favourite day.

Day four had some amazing designers. Huishan Zhang, Burberry and Sophia Webster. I loved the shoes so much!

And finally day five, A brilliant way to end a great fashion week.

I love these looks. Especially the print, it looks great anywhere. I wonder if it would still look great as trousers or a jacket? #pattern #VictoryforuFashion #mystyleideas #womenstyle #VictoryforuInspiration #GodLovesYou #Victorious #LoveGod #LoveLife #LoveStyle #LoveFashion #styleblog #Fashionblogger #BeautifulWomen #Victoryforu #VictoriousEveryday
