No, I don't think I'll be much influenced by these trends. Nothing there would fit our Pacific Northwest lifestyle - or go with a pair of Birkenstocks and fuzzy socks!

Heavenly Housewife said...

The one in the middle of the "unusual" category looks like a Thanksgiving turkey LOL. My favourite trend: wearable.
*kisses* HH

do NOT love the orange dress where the boobs look cut out - UGH!

Tracy said...

All I can say is I wish I had the figure to wear some of these fashions

Amanda said...

I think these trends will influence interior design/ styling quite a bit this year. I'm already visualizing some upholstery treatments, and window treatments based on these images!

Angela said...

Well there are definitely a few dresses that I would wear...As for trends..well I am learning NOT to throw out some of my favorites when they 'go out of style'..because I LEARNED..they come back!!

Judie said...

Nora, I can always count on you to tell me just what I am expected to wear to be IN STYLE!!!

Ha! Don't think I will be able to participate in many of these trends, however there are a few elegant looks interspersed that I wouldn't mind trying on. Thanks for give us the heads up!

Wow! I'm not sure that 2011 Dresses are going to be a big hit in Texas. However, a couple of them look like they have been drug through the tumbleweeds, and several others wouldn't last a minute in the Texas Wind and Sun...blown and burned right off those skinny gals. I think my choice for real wearablity goes to the Ralph Lauren and Oscar DeLaRenta dresses....altho, I do like that turquoise Versace.

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

Gorgeous clothes..I'm sort of a t shirt and jeans kind of girl, but it certainly is fun to look!

mle said...

Some are Doable, some are Daring & some are sorta Dumb {sorry}

Great D post!

Annesphamily said...

I love most all of them! Gucci, Oscar de la Renta and Paul Smith! I would take 'em all! Great D post! Thanks and I hope to see you around soon. Anne

Sorry, nothing here really speaks to me! The only thing that comes even close to my taste would be the 5th row up from the bottom. I would actually where those 3 dresses. I think the rest are all great for the runway but not practical for my life, and I just can't see them being too attractive on others either.

wncmountainliving said...

These dresses seem to be the extreme and look at the tiny girls wearing them. Not my style.

Berlin said...

I LOVE unusual!
Unfortunately, the Victor & Rolf middle photo looks like a pineapple mop or something, but I do like the black part :)

As for the rest they are just fab and stunning! Amazing designs!

Wow! What a terrific post-so much information and great pics! Can always bank on Lola for up to date styles & trends!

Holly said...

Fantastic post-as always!Fantastic images! :D

daylily777 said...

The models look so emaciated , it's hard to concentrate on looking at the dresses . Somebody needs to give them an IV , sandwich or something . Just my first impression .
I like some of the dresses .
Blessings,

Jan said...

Fabulous post-such great pics! My favorite? Chanel. Least favourite? The first "unusual" ones! Very "unusual!" 8-)

tania said...

My word veri's "Skinnye"!How appropriate for those models!:D

Mike said...

The models all look as if they could do with a square meal and a shake! Nice clothes though.

One Heart said...

Ooh, fun. You always get us thinking. I love fashion but rather classic and comfortable as Ive shared before. From these pictures I like the Oscar de la Renta brown dress with orange hat as well as his royal blue dress with red hat.

Jenny said...

If I was skinny and young I would be all over the Ungaro dress. With a great tan...high, high heels.

Sigh.

I really enjoyed your post today! Some of these clothes seemed actually like things I would see people wearing.

Which one would you wear? Or do you wear?

I always love stopping here. You transport me to a dreamworld that I find so fun and fascinating.
