I went to Buenos Aires and it was about having fun and relaxing a little. I saw these women who were all made-up and really took the effort to dress-up. Then I saw their daughters who were in jeans and a t-shirt. I was thinking ‘When did we lose it? When did we stop making the effort to look good?

Lanvin’s New Porcelain Dolls

Pictures of the newest porcelain Lanvin dolls have been released and I must say that they’ve taken a very different turn this season. The first doll pictured is obviously inspired by the Steven Meisel-lensed ad campaign featuring Jamie Bochert, but the look on the doll’s face is more scared than dramatic. The bridal doll is almost an exact replica of how the model was styled at the Resort 2010 show, and in my opinion, the best out of this collection. The remaining dolls are just not cutting it for me; I don’t like the black tights on the fifth doll and the make-up on the last one is a little too garish.

They’re certainly not as charming as the some of the previously released dolls so I’ve got my fingers crossed for the ones that will be inspired by the Fall 2010 collection. According to Luxury Haven, these dolls are going to be released in late October, which gives them some time to grow on me!

What do you think of the newest Lanvin dolls?

Jessica Alba, Gwyneth Paltrow & Cameron Diaz ♥ Lanvin

Yay! We’re finally getting to see the amazing Fall/Winter 2010 collection on the red carpet! I couldn’t be happier because that collection will go down as one of my favorites ever - along with Spring/Summer 2008 and Spring/Summer 2010 of course. The black Cleopatra-style wigs and smoky eyes are definitely something I would love to recreate myself for a night out. These celebrities chose to keep their hair and make-up looks more relaxed and less runway, but still looked super stylish nonetheless.

Jessica Alba at ‘The Killer Inside Me’ Paris Premiere - Fall/Winter 2010

Alba went for a head-to-toe Lanvin look - minus the huge chunky pendant that was shown on the runway. She switched up the shoes too and wore wedges instead of the bandage-style heels the dress was worn with. I much prefer the dress with the pendant and on this occasion, I don’t think the wedges were a better choice over the heels.

Gwyneth Paltrow at Diane Von Furstenberg’s Claridges Party - Fall/Winter 2010

Since the dresses in the collection are so amazing, it’s understandable why the celebrities (or their stylists) in this post chose to pair them without the jewelry they were matched with on the runway. In both Alba’s and Paltrow’s case however, I miss the addition of the huge, chunky pieces or any piece of jewelry period. I think both outfits would have been a lot more ‘Wow!’ with a statement necklace, ring or earrings. I think Paltrow chose to make her shoes the statement here, but I would have loved a piece of jewelry that could have doubled as a weapon on her!

Cameron Diaz at the ‘Knight and Day’ Premiere - Spring/Summer 2010

Cameron Diaz wore a pretty LBD from the Spring/Summer 2010 collection and those ankle strap shoes with a gold chain to the premiere of her movie ‘Knight and Day.’ There’s not a great deal to say about this, other than she looks lovely!

Lanvin Spring 2010 Women’s Ad Campaign

Shot by Steven Meisel with model Jamie Bochert, I thought this ad campaign was genius and I love how much movement is portrayed in the photographs. The two different images are a great contrast too. The first image has the short, black and white, more structured looks and the second image has the long, nude-coloured, draped silk outfits. The ads definitely showcase the wide range of looks from the Spring/Summer 2010 collection! How great does the jewelry look in that second image too?! Those necklaces are insane! 

P.S. Just found this ad too:
