Oscar de la Renta Mullet

There're a lot of mullet gowns out there. But, I think the original idea of making the mullet gown so elegant and different from the other came from Oscar de la Renta's. Most people make them seems like removable skirt so it doesn't like a whole gown. Nevertheless, the Oscar de la Renta's version is make the front line just a little bit shorter than the back so it's still formal gown, but not too formal either.

Grace of Monaco: Wardrobe

After watched the Grace of Monaco movie, honestly I don't really like the story even I love Grace Kelly and Nicole Kidman much. One thing that I put attention on is the wardrobe. I think they put a lot of effort and (in my opinion) worth the next Oscar's or Cannes' for best wardrobe movie ever. They got the idea of timeless and elegant in every scene and every event, just like Grace Kelly was. Oh dear the Grace of Monaco wardrobe's stylist, you've got an A+ from me! ;)

 Above: the white V-Neckline ball gown with laces embellishments. Bottom: the signature style's of Grace Kelly, scarfs around the face and coats.



 Above: The Valentino bow version of Grace Kelly: with floral printed fabric! Bottom: White dresses and white top with wide leg pants.



Scarf around the neck as always.
