WHERE’S MY PRINCE CHARMING?!
Maybe if I buy these awesome perspex shoes from Marc Jacobs he’ll show up?
Soooooo much more comfortable than glass slippers – and you get a pair!
Once again, Marc Jacobs created another NYFW ‘moment’ but at this moment in time, apart from prolonging the rather tired 1990s grunge trend, we’re struggling how this one might translate to the high street as we can’t see the general public embracing giant furry hats.
Fashion writers have mulled over possible influences: The Cat in the Hat, buccaneers and pirates, Dionne from Clueless, Willy Wonka, Kurt Cobain, tramps, Jamiroquai and we can see them all – with a grungy edge.
There was also a flirtation with exaggerated retro shapes. Trying to strip away the more outlandish bits, pencil and lantern-shaped skirts in interesting textures were a recurrent theme as well as tricky cropped trousers and mid-length layers as well as grungy fur with the odd touch of pastel rave.
While I admire the creativity and Jacobs’ ability to be different, this show stuck out because it was more conceptual in a sea of ready-to-wear looks and *please don’t hate me* I prefer Marc Jacobs in his brighter and more easy-to-wear moments.
Honeysuckle pink was officially Pantone’s colour of 2011 and while we could wax lyrical about Kate Middleton in McQueen or Lady Gaga in very little (both influencing fashion in very different ways) we think that 2011 was Miss Piggy’s year! Let’s be honest – did anyone see that coming?
But why? Well there’s a new Muppets movie just released Stateside and the perky pig has in the past year, collaborated with Mac, got an InStyle editorial and sat FROW at Michael Kors’ show. Here are a few of our favourite Miss Piggy moments.
It was my birthday last weekend and despite being a year older (and wiser) I am unsurprisingly still addicted to many of the same blogs and as obsessed with fashion as ever.
So as I am a YouTube and blog ‘haul’ addict and I think you can tell a lot about someone from their sense of style…mine as you can see is slightly quirky…I thought I’d share some of my favourite presents with you (in a non-bragging way. I’m a seriously lucky girl!)

With close-fitting jumpers set to be even bigger news in SS12, a neat cashmere sweater is a must – and Marc Jacobs has come to the rescue!
According to Nylon magazine, Marc by Marc Jacobs boutiques (there’s one on Mount St in Mayfair, London) will sell the reasonable cashmere – mini cardigans, jumpers, gloves, scarves and hats – for under the equivalent of $100. We’ll be sure to drop in and see if this is the case for the UK!
Marc Jacobs was on fashion form with his sixties-inspired collection for Louis Vuitton. Playful as you might expect, it was also elegant with some seriously skilled bead work and crocheting (we also really liked the roundabout setting).
The highlight of the show was Kate Moss in a stunning white dress. Voila!

From now on you can rely on Snap Fashion to bring you the most stylish celebs spotted over the weekend!
First up- The Saturdays’ Mollie King rocking the tricky leather trend whilst still managing to look cute. Apparently the band has got a deal in the US to be the stars of a new reality TV series.
Cheryl Cole perfects ‘casual’ in hot New York with a panther print mini dress by Marc Jacobs and mini satchel by Ralph Lauren.
Rachel McAdams might have just finished filming Sherlock Holmes in London, but took a bit of British style back to LA with her in the form of this stylish trench coat and cute hat. We love the quirky leggings to freshen up a classic look.
Meanwhile Dannii Minogue showed us how to do glamour with a seriously sparkly gown from her Project D range.
