Looks I Love: Jennifer Hudson

This past week was the premiere of the season finale for the 10th season of Project Runway. Even though this was filmed about a month ago at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, fans of Project Runway got their first look into the remaining 4 finalists collections on Thursday (October 18). 

Even though I loved all the collections that the designers presented, I couldn't stop staring at guest judge Jennifer Hudson every time the camera panned over to the judges! I'm usually not the biggest fan on jumpsuits, but this teal ensemble was to die for! At first glance, I thought it was a pant suit, but once she walked the runway, I realized it was actually a jumpsuit. Everything from the teal blazer, to her coral lips, and effortless braid was just perfect.

She stole the show from the Project Runway finalists, and I was more interested in where I could get something as chic and cool as that instead of who was going to win season 10! With a little research, I discovered that it's actually a piece from Michael Kors' Resort 2013 Collection (which was also gorgeous - click here to see for yourself).

She definitely showed up the other judges too. I always love Nina Garcia's choices, but Heidi Klum went a little overboard with her nude, sparkly, cut-out, cleavage-plunging dress. It just seemed like she was trying way to hard. 

Were you in love with Jennifer's look as much as I was? Can you rock the jumpsuit trend?

Fall Color Obsession: Burgundy

Even though I feel like Florida doesn't really follow color fashion trends because the weather is always so warm, my favorite color to wear in the fall is burgundy, otherwise known as maroon. The dark crimson-wine color is perfect for the dark palettes of the cooler months of the year.

It's definitely been a popular color in stores and I can't get enough of it! Recently, I bought two burgundy pieces from Lauren Conrad's collection at Kohl's: a blazer and a sheer button-up with black polka dots. I also bought a teardrop burgundy statement necklace from Francesca's. Whether it's a blouse, skirt, blazer, jeans or a dress, burgundy will definitely be a key hue in my fall wardrobe.

Some of my favorite looks:

Elie Saab Spring RTW 2013

Elie Saab has done it again. He continues to put beautiful collections down the runway season after season. His whimsical style and effortless looks are what makes me fall in love. 

His Spring Ready-to-Wear 2013 collection was presented at Paris Fashion Week on October 3rd. It contained a color palette of reds, whites, blues, and blacks. I'm in love with the color cobalt blue, and he opened up the collection with a  few looks in head-to-toe cobalt blue. Some pieces were fitted and silhoutette skimming, while others were soft and flowy. The lace pieces are innovative and are great showstoppers for any event. 

I could go on and on about how much I love this designer, but I'll save you the reading and you can see for yourself. Click here to see his full collection, and previous collections from other seasons.

What were your favorite collections from this season? Do you love Elie Saab as much as I do?
