For those of you have been following the story of the rise and fall of John Galliano, then you know this history of it all. His work has been praised throughout the years for design houses such as Givenchy, Dior and his own label John Galliano. If Galliano intends to make a comeback, he will have a lot to prove to the world and the fashion industry.

In this lovely world of fashion, yes, there are only a select few of people that can truly, truly understand how you feel about fashion. Before I started blogging, I never really had that connection with anyone, but then, as I started to meet more and more friends in the blogging world, I’ve found my connections!
So my whole point to this is that, if you love fashion and your friends just don’t quite get how you feel about it, join a fashion group or club where there are other girls just like you!
P.S. This goes out to Katja Nyquist!

Wow, Wow, Gucci has finally launched it’s own line of cosmetics, which has been long overdue. The Italian designer celebrated the launch of Gucci Cosmetics back on in June which took place at The Carlyle Hotel. There was a private cocktail party in honor of Charlotte Casiraghi and it was hosted by Frida Giannini.
This long awaited collection has everything to make your makeup collection complete that includes Gucci Eye, Gucci Face, Gucci Lip, Gucci Nail and preparation products for the skin. With other major designer labels launching their own collection of cosmetics, it was inevitable for Gucci to launch their own.
The eyeshadows are of vibrant hues that include teals, purples, blues and a gold that has that perfect hint of iridescent. The lipsticks look to be of intense colors from a rich satin to a matte feel. The price range varies from $39 for a lipstick to $37 for a single shadow which is very comparable other cosmetics brands such as Chanel, Dior or Burberry.

Leave to Jeremy Scott, the brains behind Moschino, to make quite a stir for Milan Fashion Week. There was an excellent article on the very fashionable Barbie themed show by Nicole Phelps from Style.com. In the article it states “It took a good 20 minutes to get past the throng at the door, the standing section was three rows deep, and the crowd whooped and hollered as the lights dimmed.” That piece clearly shows that this show was highly anticipated and expected to knock our socks off. But what else can you expect from such an eccentric designer? He came and hit the industry hard for fall 2014 with McDonalds and Budweiser. A Barbie themed collection is the next plausible step.
In the article it also states that ‘“Hiya, Barbie!” rang out from the loudspeakers, and delivering on the promise of the giant plastic comb that was included in the invitation, the first model emerged in a huge platinum blond wig, bubblegum pink lipstick, shrunken fuchsia leather jacket and miniskirt, and (what else?) mules.’ A most perfect show, showcasing life like barbie dolls.

If you’ve been following my blog for some time, then you’ll be excited for the last chapter in the series of short films chronicling the life of Coco Chanel. The last chapter was just released today titled “Paris by Chanel” We’ve seen Chapter 1 starting with No 5, the iconic and perfume that still, to this day is the favorite perfume of all time, to the infamous Chanel Jacket, the jacket that is lusted after by so many women.
The tale of a young woman who born to parents of a modest background and through several struggles made a triumphant return to the couture fashion world. The woman who made being a woman a fabulous thing.
The world of fashion can be quite brutal at times, with vanity being making a huge impact on the lives of the models. It can make or break a model and if she isn’t strong enough to combat the negativity, well, then, she is broken. Gemma Ward has defied those odds and has made a comeback. Read the posting on her return here.

Whether you’re already married, have been married or are just now planning that special day, it’s important to find the right Bridal Store. Not all Bridal stores are the same, and thats where David’s Bridal comes in. They provide every soon to be bride with all the necessary tools to help make that wedding day that ultimate special day. I had the great pleasure of attending the grand opening of the prototype store for David’s Bridal in Sacramento. This is the first store of its kind for the bridal chain and Sacramento was the city of choice. I was able to view the store the day before the grand opening, get a private tour and to hear all about who David’s Bridal is and what they’re all about. When I first walked in, I was already impressed with just the way the front check in area looked. It reminded me of a swank boutique in Los Angeles with the stark white walls, the lighting and the bright green, boxed in ground cover with the words “Today Is Your Day” written in the middle. If that alone doesn’t excite a bride, then I don’t know what else would. I was greeted by Charly Rok, VP of Public Relations for David’s Bridal, Rebecca Gannon, the store manager, and they’re senior stylist Brittany Spears. They started the tour by showing me their social occasion area called DB Studio, it’s a section of the store that is a little more affordable for the bride that is looking for something a little more casual, say, for a courthouse wedding or even for their engagement party. What makes it even more appealing is that the prices start at $99 up to $249. Although this section could be worn by brides to be, but a vast selection of their dresses from their DB Studio and throughout the store can be worn for any special occasion as well. I was just amazed because I would never have thought to check out David’s Bridal for special occasion dresses for military balls, homecoming, pageants and more. We moved on to their large selection of formal mother of the bride gowns, grandmother or special guests gowns, which are so different than what you are used to seeing. The bridesmaid selection was just fabulous and David’s Bridal has a design team in New York City that travels all over the world to inspired by trends. Their bridesmaids dress are all made and designed in house to be kept up to date. They like to think that they can predict the trends when it comes to bridesmaids gowns. They have every style imaginable for the special girls a bride a chosen to stand in her bridal party. Every bride and bridesmaid needs accessories right? And isn’t it important to be able to find all of your bridal needs from one place instead of having to shop around from place to place? Well, after you’ve found your wedding gown or bridesmaids gowns, all you need to do walk a few steps into the wonderful accessories room. This room is full of everything you need to complete that special day look. From gorgeous shoes to clutches to bracelets and more, this is definitely a room to die for. What I was most excited for was to see the magnificent wedding gowns and boy was I in for a surprise. The lighting in the designer section just displayed the dresses in such a manner that made them look so glorious. They have a section just for the designer collection gowns which are all exclusive to David’s Bridal, so that means, when you buy a designer gown from David’s Bridal, you know it’s not going to be at any other bridal store. Designer Zac Posen has chosen to house his exclusive collection of wedding gowns and shoes with David’s Bridal. This is the only place you can find a Zac Posen wedding gown. In addition to Zac Posen, they also carry a wide collection of Vera Wang, which again, can not only be found in her bridal boutiques and David’s Bridal. Their collection of designer gowns do not stop with just Zac and Vera, but also Melissa Sweet. A very successful, couture designer that has a bohemian aesthetic to her gowns. She and David’s Bridal have a special arrangement in which she does all of the sketching and designing, while David’s Bridal takes care of all the hard work. Oleg Cassini is another designer that houses it’s collection with David’s Bridal. This famous, American Royalty designer has been amongst the Hollywood elite for a very long time so you know when you purchase your gown you’re getting a quality, iconic designer gown. Veils are an essential and important finishing touch to any wedding gown David’s Bridal had a large, wonderful, various styles of veils to match your special gown. It really is just amazing to know that everything is carried at this store, from a room that is filled stacks and stacks of bras, shoes, bra inserts, slips and more. They even have a dye room for that bride that still would like to have her shoes match the color of dresses. Another section of this massive store has rows and rows of dresses that under $800 and in various sizes from size 0 to plus sizes. I was able to view the alterations room where all alterations are done in house. Nothing is ever sent out, so there is never a wait or worry for your special dress. All you get is a guarantee that your dress is going to be perfect. What most impressed me about this store were not only Rebecca, Charly and Britney, but just the entire esthetic of the store, their selection of dresses, accessories, but most of all the prices, the pricing is phenomenal. You just cannot go wrong with a store in which socialites from New York and Los Angeles buy their designer gowns, and say their wearing designer, but don’t pay the designer price.

For those of us TOPSHOP lovers, they unveiled their new show space, which is an urban warehouse complete with a Beauty Pit Stop. They invited show attendees to get a little “freshened” up for complimentary mini make over! Cara Delevingne opened up the show that was geared more towards the bold sporty bright looks. There was the retro vibe of jerseys in red, bordweaux and blues that complimented stark white A-line skirts (which resembled a tennis skirt).
There were also a few dresses that gave the 20′s vibe decorated with Swarovski crystals. I personally love the collection, although a few pieces are definitely geared toward more of the younger girls. Below are a few of my favorite pieces and the video from the runway show. Enjoy!
As New York Fashion Week 2015 came to a close, we have yet another start of London Fashion Week 2015.

From Ralph Lauren, Oscar De La Renta to Marc Jacobs and more, they all gave us a glimpse of what we can look forward to seeing on the racks come spring.
But, the runway shows themselves were not the only scene stealers, the backstage was also where all the magic happened. In going through my Instagram feed Herfashionpassion, I couldn’t help but feel the need to share my favorite moments from NYFW2015. From the collection pieces to backstage to the awesome street style, you’ll find my favorite moments below:
