Colcci - Sao Paulo Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013

While we’re not sure why Ashton was a no-show this time around, we all know that Alessandra just gave birth recently to a baby boy.
Candice Swanepoel took their place by leading the pack as the opening model. The South African beauty, even with her blonde hair and noticeable tan (she obviously doesn’t have olive skin) seemed to fit right in a cute print peplum and crop top from the brand.

Euro 2012: Esotiq Presents Fashion Loves Football
If you’re a lover of football (soccer), you’ve surely been tuned into the Euro championships with teams like England, Spain, and Portugal competing to see who has the best soccer team in Europe. Fashion doesn’t often mix with football, but it did with this event held in Warsaw, Poland right after the Poland and Russia match. The event at the National Opera House was hosted by TV Actress/Presenter Hofit Golan and British designer Scott Henshall.
There was a fashion show featuring designs from Jean Paul Gaultier, Eva Minge, Georges Hobeika and more. Guests included French football players and more. There were performances from French singer Patricia Kaas and Polish pop singer Natalia Lesz. The exclusive sponsor for the event was Dictador Rum. For more on this event, check out this article.
Alexander McQueen for Givenchy Fall/Winter 1997/1998 Haute Couture
The late, great Alexander McQueen was at Givenchy from 1996 to 2001 before founding his own label. McQueen caused a stir when he was appointed by LVMH president Bernard Arnault, soon after John Galliano because he insulted the founder, calling him “irrelevant.”
McQueen certainly was a genius, but his first collection was unsuccessful and even McQueen told Vogue the collection was “crap.” This one looked to be promising, however, and the genius that is Alexander McQueen can be seen, particularly with controversial moves, though toned down. This show featured models like Naomi Campbell.
