January 22, 2010



My dear readers, given all the horrors and shock and
awe of the last post (you know what I mean!) which
gave me nightmares (how can anyone go out looking look so freakish?), I thought you might like to soothe your eyes by having a look at some more Catwalk Trends for 2010. Please do let me know which one(s) you like best or least!

CREDITS (respectively):
POWER SHOULDERS - Balmain (+ close-up)
FLOWER POWER - Nicole Farhi
M. Williamson; Burberry; J Saunders
RACHEL McADAMS - in that sooo revealing Pucci number!
DIANE KRUGER - Vuitton; Versace; Balmain & Louboutins

Dear readers, do let me know which trend(s) you like best or least!
And thank you so much for all the comments and visits this week!
As you know, I’m sorry I can’t get out to your sites as often as I used
to ‘cos of my P.A. Nora’s work commitments. But I do love hearing
from you and reading each comment!

NB Because of Blogger problems (we have no Followers lists!),
I find I’m blocked from accessing several sites (inc. A Vintage
Cottage Home Information is Everything, My Enchanted Home,
La Boheme, A Plethora of Postcards etc). My apologies to all these
bloggers and also if I’m unable to visit your wonderful site too!

Wow!Lola,you've done it again! So many exquisiite fashions for us.But what to choose?If I'm feeling brave,i'd choose the Pucci number, otherwise the flower power one is so flattering.xx

Georgia said...

Just adore all the Diane Kruger designs! Fabulous post, Lola!You've excelled yourself especially after all that horror before in last post!!

xxx Georgia

paul said...

sylvia said...

Ok...ummmm that first outfit is a bit disturbing. If I wore something like that, I'd be sure to stay away from crossing the street. That is too much green, I think I'd run myself over if I wore something like that. hehehehe

Heavenly Housewife said...

The green outfit is ever so slightly leprechaun LOL, but for some reason I like it. It would take a rare beauty like yourself to pull it off though daaaahling.
Hope you and Nora have a marvelous weekend.
*kisses* HH

I love the purple frock with the black waist sash.

Elegance to be found for whomever wears this beauty.

dana said...

I'm 60. I'm a retired flower child. I was wasp skinny with hair to my waist. We wore "butterfly" blouses and flowing skirts and original Earth Shoes. It was hard to tell how well we were built due to all the flowing clothing. BUT, we WERE built! These models are definitely being worn BY the clothes and most of them look extremely uncomfortable to wear.

But like I said, hippies went for comfort. Now I'm wearing orthopaedic everything.

Gingeyginge said...

Thank you sweet lady for your comment...Love the colour of that green, and that black floral dress!

tania said...

Liked all the Diane Kruger designs but I'm really glad power shoulders are back! So Dynasty & Joan Collins!

Have a good weekend xx

Snowbrush said...

The one with flowers and no one in it looks nice. I would have to say that most of the rest are either slutty, infantile, or like something a disturbed street person might favor.

Jenny said...

Oh my. This reminds me of Project Runway almost. I cannot imagine how they create such interesting clothing from nothing but an idea!


The new version of power shoulders are quite fab! Lovely weekend darling...Thank you so much for your kind words, I've survived the horrible flooding! xo as always*

laterg8r said...

blech to the vulcan-like shoulders !!!

RNSANE said...

I like the black with the sexy back.

Jessica Cangiano said...

Truthfully, I don't think I'd wear any of those looks - save for the dark, classically tailored coat (worn over a lovely dress) on the middle gal in the trio of shots. My vintage loving soul just can't get behind the futuristic elements of so many of these looks, but appreciate the skill behind their creation and am sure they'll appeal to many.

Wishing you both a blissful Friday & weekend ahead!
♥ Jessica

I love the plum dress with the black sash. Very elegant and understated. The rest? Maybe on a runway model, but definitely not for me! Kathy

Maggi said...

Although I'm not crazy about the first look, I do love that knitting and crochet seem to be taking a place in fashion these days!

Got your message, are you using this link to get to Myrna's blog?


That's the one that works for me!

Dustjacket Attic said...

Mmmm after careful consideration lol... I think I'll go for dress no2, it's so elegant and understated.

Lovely weekend to you girls,

Jo said...

love the second dress ... but the shoulder on the third outfit terrify me

Gingeyginge said...

Thank you for your lovely comments, strangely I was writing the post on Jean when I received your comment!

Looking Fab in your forties said...

Love that sparkly backless dress, if only I could wear that!

Gingeyginge said...

Thank you for stopping by...It rained heavy during the week(in England) now it's just soooooooo darn cold!

Coralie Cederna Johnson said...

So sorry you are having trouble with blogger! Hope a solution presents soon! At any rate, I'm wishing you a wonderful day! Enjoy! Coralie

Beth Niquette said...

Egad--that first model's eyes are so heavy with makeup it is nearly unbelievable!!!

Happy PFF!

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Lola and Nora,

I adore the colour green of the first outfit, but do not think I would wear it though.
Sorry you are having trouble with blogger and I hope that you can get it sorted.

Have a wonderful weekend

maryt/theteach said...

Nora, thanks for your comment on my blog. I really appreciate it! I can't say I like any of these models walking the catwalk - they are too d___ skinny. I LOVE Lola!! :)

trishie said...
