Party Like a ROCK STAR~!

So a bit off topic, but well worth sharing are images from Vivienne Westwood's Spring 2009 London fashion show. Not only did models slink down the runway in avant guarde styled fashions, but the beauty palette was more like fall vs. spring. Dark stained lips and barely there make-up made the looks feel more vampire-ish than cherubic - but I loved it! Deconstructed knits, meticulously placed lace and sequence, and sicker than sick shoe options proved that you don't always have to go Alice in Wonderland for spring.

Menspiration was ever-present in the collection. Models graced the runway in vests draped over dresses, printed and khaki colored boy cut shorts, oversized blazers and what appeared to be stripped boxers shorts peaking out of khaki shorts -Androgyny at it's best.

The shoe game showed more of Westwood's point of view, feminine with a twist. Strapy heeled platforms some laced all the way up the leg, Jesus be Cool-esque sandals, muffin top closed heels with open toes and ruffle inspired heels provided an additional vision of fantasy and pleasure.

One of my favorite looks consisted of a multi-tiered skirt of grey and beige paired with a PVC sweetheart collared jacket, headband and killer lace-tied shoes. Another fantastic look paired a black trench (the main ode to spring in this collection) with lace up the leg platform sandals, khaki shorts and super chic shades. Can someone say incognito? If you want an edgy look, whether its rock n' roll or you just simply want to try something new, it just doesn't get any better than this!
