Spring Runway Looks 2011

Leafing through my multiple folders on the computer, I stumbled across a folder containing spring runway photos. :) You can imagine how happy I was, since I know can post my favorites on this little blog. What a sweet surprise! Thank you, God. :) Here are those long belated photos! Enjoy! :)
(All photos are from Vogue.com)
The glittery cardigan is so cute, and those
pants are what I would call modest. What
do you all think? :) Diane Von Furstenburg
D&G were really fantastic this season... as
shown by this gorgeous and modest lace dress!
Wouldn't you LOVE to have it? :)
I love her make-up and hair... and the dress
is really cute. :) Ralph Lauren
I heart these spectacular pants! It is SO hard
to find modest pants, but those are really nice!
(And yes, I think the turban is just plain cool. :)
Giorgio Armani
D&G were really high on my list this season!
Just look at all that pink!!
Another beautiful dress from D&G
I actually like something from... Alexander
McQueen?? *Gasp* But, this dress is gorgeous!
I almost screamed when I saw this!!!!! I LOVE
it! So classy and chic. *Sigh* It surely has a price
tag to match. :P This is by my favorite designer of
all time (drumroll, please) Oscar de la Renta!!!! 
That hat is sooooo cute! And the dress would
be nice, if it were on a different person. :)
Oscar de la Renta
Gorgeous. Oscar de la Renta
I love this maxi! And the shirt would be really
chic, if it were miles higher on the neckline. ;)
Can you guess? Oscar de la Renta
So classy and modest!
Oscar de la Renta 
This is one of the only jumpsuits I have seen
and like. Pink and ruffles score high on my list!
Oscar de la Renta 
Seriously, the person who buys this dress
and wears it will feel like a princess!
Oscar de la Renta
He just made black lace classy. This man
is a genius! Oscar de la Renta
*sob* I really want this dress! (anyone know
how to get a dress exactly like this for... less? ;)

The print is a little weird, I admit. But, it has
gloves and a dress!!!! (the top part is NOT modest,
just to clear things up ;) Oscar de la Renta
Beautiful!!!!! Same thing for the top part :)
Oscar de la Renta

So pretty! Oscar de la Renta
GORGEOUS. Yes, with capitals ;)

Ralph Lauren. I love that dress!!!!
Some of you do not share my style, so I will
show you a photos of something modest that
I would never wear. ;) So, maybe that is a bit
better for you? ;)
Who is your favorite designer? :)

My Style Paragon

The woman who inspires my style may surprise you. Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, and Jackie Kennedy all have lovely style, but my creativity is immediately sparked whenever I see a picture of this woman. Her name is Vivien Leigh. Although I don't endorse all of her films, she was a very classy woman, who was rarely seen without a pair of gloves and perfectly matching clothing. (All the rage back then! :) There is a faraway look in her eyes, a melancholy sweetness that touches my heart. Sadly, Vivien Leigh suffered from Manic Depression, and did not experience the peace and hope that comes from trusting in Jesus as her savior. I find sheer genius in her style, and I would love to share with you a few of my favorite photos of her. Well, maybe a lot. All right, a TON! :) This lady has class and style. God bless!

From a movie, I believe :)
So happy!
Gardening, while gorgeous!

They are so cute together! With Olivier, of course :)
So gorgeous!
She is sooooo stylish!
This is so beautifully modest!
A funeral look? Anyway, she looks spectacular!
What simple, quiet beauty!
What a beautiful dress... (although immodest :/ )
This girl is uberchic!
Traveling in style, with husband Olivier :)
So chic... :)
I love this photo of Vivian! She looks soooo
beautiful! :)
Quite immodest, but I love this style!
So casually stylish!
I love the dress, though it is fairly immodest :(
After winning an Oscar!
In "Gone with the Wind" (she really did have the MOST amazing eyes!)

A gorgeous lace scarf.... *bliss*
This was for a movie!

Don't judge me. I like fur :)
With husband Olivier. Oh, don't you just love those gloves??
She is so pretty! AND she is wearing a head scarf!
I love her style!!!
I love, love, love, love her hair! And I love this
casual look!!! :)
With husband
How ladylike!
She has amazing eyes!!!
I LOVE her smile!
With husband Olivier
With her husband
Laurence Olivier
Beautiful Vivian :)
The angle of her head is
weird, but I love color photos
of her, as there are so few :(
Another gorgeous smile :)
She has very defined cheekbones ;)

*Sigh* Vivian Leigh truly is my style paragon. She embodied grace, class, and poise, although she had a very tragic life. At home and in the public, her style was classic and dramatic... pure gorgeousness. I hope that you were inspired by Miss Leigh's exquisite style. :)
God bless, my dear readers! :)
