Terry Richardson’s Tom Ford Spring 2011 Show Photos Are Out

Terry Richardson’s Tom Ford Spring 2011 Show Photos Are Out

Tom Ford's Spring 2011 Show was under a total media blackout. Only the who-and-who of fashion print world and celebrities were invited. And Terry Richardson was the only one with a camera covering the coveted show.

Terry Richardson's photos of Tom Ford's Spring 2011 show are now published for the first time in Harper's Bazaar UK January 2011 issue. In the photos we get a look at the collection as guests at the show saw it. Tom Ford's Spring 2011 collection was modeled on a runway by the likes of Lauren Hutton, Beyonce, Liya Kebede, Stella Tennant, Daphne Guinness and Joan Smalls. Real women - as Tom Ford perceives them.

We first got a taste of the collection earlier this month ...

McQ Pre-Fall 2011: Back In McQueen’s Reign But Not Better

McQ Pre-Fall 2011: Back In McQueen’s Reign But Not Better

I was kind of shocked to see the McQ Pre-fall 2011 lookbook this morning. About a month ago, we learned that Alexander McQueen's diffusion line -McQ - that up until now was produced by licensees, will from now on be fully controlled and designed by Alexander McQueen's team of designers.

With the last McQ Fall 2010 collection looking like an odd 90's denim and patches mess, I thought we were in for an upgrade. Seems I was hoping for too much.

The new McQ Pre-Fall 2011 collection is also odd. I suppose it is meant to be preppy, but somehow it looks like a poor man's version of preppy. We also get a bizarre geeky goth look consisting of front-corset ...

January Jones Is The New Face Of Versace For Spring 2011

January Jones Is The New Face Of Versace For Spring 2011

I suppose we should have seen it coming after seeing January Jones rocking an electric blue Versace dress at the Emmys back in August and then sitting front row while wearing Versace at the Versace Spring 2011 runway show in Milan. Clearly, January Jones is into Versace and now she'll be the face and star of Versace's Spring 2011 campaign.

If it means we'll be seeing even more Versace worn to events then I'm totally down with it!

Jakarta Fashion Week: Tex Saverio Spring 2011 “La Glacon” Collection

Jakarta Fashion Week: Tex Saverio Spring 2011 “La Glacon” Collection

UPDATE: FL Q&A Interview: Tex Saverio, Indonesian fashion designer extraordinaire

I'm just going to say it. Tex Saverio is the Indonesian Alexander McQueen.

A couple of weeks ago Tex Saverio sent his Spring 2011 collection down Indonesia's Jakarta Fashion Week runway. Using tulle, organza and laser-cut leather in greys and silver Saverio created a truly marvelous collection he appropriately dubbed "La Glacon" (icicle). Judging by his past collections, Saverio's style is dramatic, to say the least, and very couture oriented.

Tex Saverio is a natural talent. He is only 26 and already has a prestigious Mercedes-Benz Asia Fashion Award to his name. That award he got back in 2005 when he was 21.

Jac Langheim Spring 2011 Lookbook: High-Fashion Latex

Jac Langheim Spring 2011 Lookbook: High-Fashion Latex

While browsing a new blog on the block Lowefactor I discovered a new New York designer - Jac Langheim and with her came a wearable high-fashion latex collection (can you imagine?).

Jac Langheim created her debut Spring 2011 collection mainly out of latex with a bit of the more mainstream cotton. What makes Langheim's debut collection great is that she doesn't fixate on latex as a fetish object. In fact, she steered clear of anything that could be perceived as fetish wear and amazingly put out a strong ready-to-wear collection of dresses, jackets and separates. All in black and white and nothing that could, even remotely, be associated with Katy Perry or Lady Gaga.

Tom Ford Spring 2011 Preview In Vogue December 2010

Tom Ford Spring 2011 Preview In Vogue December 2010

Tom Ford hates fashion democracy. That much is clear to me. Only 100 chosen lucky ones got to see the Tom Ford Spring 2011 runway show. No cameras were allowed but one - Terry Richardson's. The collection will officially debut for us mere mortals next month on Tom Ford's website.

Clearly, even Tom Ford could not beat Anna Wintour's freezing look and Vogue got to preview the Tom Ford Spring 2011 before everyone else. Hey, if it means we'll be spared from another Prada/Louis Vuitton editorial - I'm in.

From the images so far? The collection looks like Alice + Olivia meets Gucci.

Best Dressed: Eva Mendes In Prada Spring 2011 Bananas Dress

Best Dressed: Eva Mendes In Prada Spring 2011 Bananas Dress

Eva Mendes wore this monkeys and bananas dress from the Prada Spring 2011 forthcoming collection to yesterday's 'The Other Guys' event in Madrid. I didn't like most of that collection because of the unflattering silhouettes in stiff fabrics. This particular dress is playful, cute and certainly leaves an impression. It's also very appropriate for a comedy movie event!

Faster By Mark Fast Spring 2011 Pre-Collection Lookbook

Faster By Mark Fast Spring 2011 Pre-Collection Lookbook

Faster By Mark Fast is Mark Fast's more affordable diffusion line, or as he dubs it - luxury basics line. It's quite literally - a basic, scaled down, version of Mark Fast.

While Mark Fast's signature line retail prices reach as high as $2,500, Faster by Mark Fast retails for a more reasonable price range of $25 to $400.

While I would never even consider buying Mark Fast's signature line, some of the basics in Fast By Mark Fast actually look reasonable for their price.

The diffusion line, Faster By Mark Fast, is sold in Selfridges (London), Collete (Paris. But ships internationally), Corso Como (Milan), Des Kohan (LA) and Seven (NY).

Easy Breezy: Elizabeth & James Spring 2011 Lookbook

Easy Breezy: Elizabeth & James Spring 2011 Lookbook

Elizabeth & James Spring 2011 lookbook is out and it is filled with summery goodies. It offers an incredibly wide range of basics and necessities - shoes, sunglasses, jewelry and tons of separates. It's amazing to me that Elizabeth & James and The Row are a brain child of the same 20 something mind.

The first item I was drawn to in the Elizabeth & James Spring 2011 lookbook was the black duster coat. You don't see a lot of light maxi coats these days, so it is definitely an item my wallet is looking forward to! Then there are the ultra-cool sunglasses, the blazers and the wedge heels. If I keep counting the staple items worth getting for next spring, ...

Nostalgic Vibe: Cecilia Hammarborg Spring 2011 Presentation

Nostalgic Vibe: Cecilia Hammarborg Spring 2011 Presentation

In the U.S, we first got a taste of Cecilia Hammarborg as part of Topshop's EDIT collection last fall. This year she doesn't retail anywhere in the U.S, but her clothes are available in plenty of U.K stores, like Swanfield on Tour, Equa, Beyond The Valley and Urban Outfitters.

Cecilia Hammarborg's Spring 2011 collection consists of playful retro-feel separates and body-con dresses. Especially cute is the bird pattern print blouse. And although the collection is mostly daywear, some of the pieces can be easily upgraded to a-night-out-on-the-town with the right pair of heels.

With Hammarborg being picked up by the likes of Topshop and Urban Outfitters I'm sure we'll get to see her soon in the U.S.

You can shop for Cecilia Hammarborg ...
