Respect The Runway: DC Fashion Week.

DCFW

DC Fashion Week is right around the corner… literally. Starting this coming Monday, the District’s largest fashion exhibition will be kicking off its 11th year with a bang. Founded by Ean Williams, the week brings designers from all around the world. According to DCFW:

                  DC Fashion Week is the largest exhibition of fashion apparel in the District of Columbia. The designers of DC Fashion Week are an eclectic group of designing talent who come from around the globe. From the high fashion capitol of New York City, to the exotic coasts of New Zealand, to the exquisite city life of Belgium, they’re taking the nation’s capital by storm.

Additionally, yours truly is an intern volunteer this year, and I would love it if you all came out and supported me, Mr. Williams, and the entire team who work to ensure the week is a major success. For more information about next week’s events, be sure to visit the official website.

Come out and have a great time! (Or don’t come, and be a total LAME!)

I’ll see you all there!!!

Stay Classick!

Couture Cars: Fresh Out of Crewe

Mulsanne 5

Since the introduction of the Bentley Continental/Flying Spur/GTC, my interest in Bentleys have declined, although if someone were to give me one, I’d gladly take it off their hands (besides, who’d be foolish enough to not do so?!?) However, I feel that the guys out in Crewe (England) have heard my cry. Enter, the 2010 Bentley Mulsanne.

Mulsanne 1 

 

Mulsanne 2

Mulsanne 4

The all new Mulsanne- named after the famous straight on the Le Mans circuit where racers reach their highest speeds- marks the first vehicle designed independently by Bentley Motors since 1930. Additionally, it revives the nameplate that was utilized from 1980-1992. Although official power figures haven’t been released, the Mulsanne will featured a redesigned version of the iconic Bentley V-8. My only guess is that power should be north of 400-450 English horses- this is a Bentley.

Slotted to replaced the aged Arnage, the Mulsanne, upon its release in 2010 for model year 2011, will be pitted against the Rolls-Royce Phantom and Maybach’s 57 and 62 variants. Expect a sticker price upwards of $400,000.

Mulsanne 6

This car has totally restored my faith in Bentleys, although it was never lost; let’s just say it was put to the side. I’m so looking forward to seeing this somewhere. It has that classic style with a modern twist, a staple for anyone’s garage… Well, those who can afford to place this lovely vehicle in their garage(s).

Do we have a winner?!?

Stay Classick!

How Do I…Smell??

kors-ad

In today’s society, looking good is not our only prerogative; we must also smell the part. Here are a few new fragrances that could make anyone stand out in a crowd, or should I say “smell” out…boy was that corny.

First up we have Very Hollywood, by Michael Kors, which is a new fragrance for women inspired by the glamour of the red carpet. Designer Michael Kors says, “Very Hollywood is the indulgence. This is the gold dress!” The ad campaign shot by Mario Testino, which is partially shown above, features Carmen Kass wearing “the gold dress,” and being escorted by Noah Mills to a red carpet event.

The sophisticated floral scent features top notes of mandarin and iced bergamot, the heart is of wet jasmine, ylang-ylang, raspberry and gardenia, and the bottom is of Italian orris, creamy amber, soft white moss and vetiver. The glass bottle is made to resemble flashbulbs and the outer packaging is a rich coral with a gold border, the Very Hollywood label features a font inspired by the Beverly Hills Hotel. Very Hollywood is slated to launch in September 2009, select products are currently available at www.michaelkors.com.
