S4S: July 19th

AlexanderMcQueenArmadilloBootsIn a perfect world Alexander McQueen would still be with us and we’d all be wearing his armadillo boots. Alas, that was years ago, so this week I’m sighing for a resurrected pair of his iconic boots, which will be auctioned off this week at Christie’s to benefit Unicef. Sadly the boots aren’t in my budget, but one lucky fashionista will be reliving a piece of fashion history in this piece of art.

MMW: May 18th

julianne-moore-cannes-MMWAfter seeing Julianne Moore in this drop-dead Givenchy gown in Cannes a few days ago, I knew she had to be this week’s Monday’s Most Wanted. The natural beauty wows with every appearance on the red carpet, and is always put together everywhere else. At 54, Julianne is a role model for not being afraid to take chances with her wardrobe. Even in a fierce high-slit red dress with a croc-embossed leather bodice, she wears everything with grace and confidence. A friend of Tom Ford’s, she also appreciates the art of fashion, even appearing in his movie A Single Man (as a glamorously dressed woman of the 1960’s, of course). Having just won her first Oscar, it’s time she gets some more recognition for her artistic capabilities in the Style department as well!
