The Royal Wedding Dress

As everyone should know by now, the spectacular Royal Wedding took place this morning. As some obsessed over flowers and vows, all of us fashion lovers just wanted to see how amazing Kate Middleton looked in her unknown wedding dress. The dress was kept a secret from the public until she revealed herself this morning at the ceremony. Kate looked absolutely stunning in her white dress designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. It's been said that her dress design was inspired by Grace Kelly's wedding dress from 1956.

The detailing on the dress was exquisite. The train was nearly 9 feet in length and the dress was made of different types of lace. The details were so important that the workers who were working with the lace were required to wash their hands every 30 minutes to keep the threads immaculate. The needles that were being used were also replaced every three hours in order to keep the points clean and sharp. The dress cost around $47,000. At the big event, it's said that she put extra padding near her hips in order to make her waist look smaller. I love this innovative idea and it definitely looked great.

I absolutely loved Kate in this dress. The newlywed looked dazzling and pristine. The lace sleeves made the dress look elegant, while the bodice gave the dress a modern feel. What did you think of Kate's dress?

Daring or Dreadful: Bright Eyeliner

From runways to magazines, bright eyeliner has been making a break-out lately and I'm not so sure how I feel about it. I personally use liquid black eyeliner every day, and occasionally change it up with a purple or blue eyeliner. Makeup artists have been breaking boundries recently though. Reds, oranges, and yellows and everything in between have been seen on runways like Derek Lam and Peter Som. Eyeliner can be found in any color possible and usually it's as easy to find as going to your local convient store, but can this bright-eyed look be translated from runway to every day in a tasteful way.

What do you think? Daring or Dreadful?

Rihanna doesn't shy away from a bold look. She's been spotted numerous times wearing fierce colors, like the red, purple, and pink seen above.

Things I Love: Feather Earrings

Feather earrings have definitely been coming back in style this season. They've been spotted on tons of celebrities and they look great when they're mixed in subtly with your hair! The usual brown, peacock, and neutral colored feathers are great for a natural boho chic look, but don't be afraid to try a pair that have an unusual color like teal, or pink as seen on Gwyneth Paltrow below. Although I do love feather earrings, there are always those who take it one step too far. I'm not the biggest fan of Vanessa Hudgen's one-sided feather earring. It just looks so heavy. What's your take on these boho inspired accessories?

Dreaming of...D&G Spring 2011 RTW Collection

At the end of September in 2010, Dolce and Gabbana released their Spring 2011 ready-to-wear collection in Milan. I fell in love. I'm such a sucker for lace in the spring and I'm a total jelly belly towards anyone who is rocking anything from this collection for the spring. The collection is mostly white lace, but there are also accents of black, a few embellishments, and a couple patterns also. To see the whole collection, click here.

What Were They Thinking #1

If you can afford to have a professional stylist, fashion mistakes this bad should never happen. I don't know what these ladies were thinking when they left the house, but they definitely turned a bad way. And Aubrey O'Day landed on the list twice. Would you wear any of these outfits?
