The Oscars 2012 – Red Carpet Glamour

March 7, 2012

After watching the Oscars I decided to illustrate my favorite looks on the red carpet this year. First up is American TV/movie star Maria Menounos. I adored her romantic feminine Reem Acra gown. The dress had a very soft grecian drape and I love how the chiffon just seemed to mould itself around her body creating an extremley flattering look. The pistachio green colour was a very unique choice but she totally rocked it and it was very pretty against her golden complextion. Next is someone who hardly fails to dissapoint in the style stakes – Penelope Cruz. Like Maria, […]

More Fashion Week Illustrations Here are some more of my favorite looks from various shows at Fashion Week this year. Ellie Saab stole the show creating an extremely feminine collection.

Hello out there art aficionados!!!   This is my first blog post on illustrations and this week I decided to illustrate what’s on the catwalk in Paris. I have been keeping my eye on the collections during Fashion Week, and so far my favorite show had to be the Dior show. It was all about femme fatale 1950′s glamour, with alluring silhouettes cinched at the waist, prom style full skirts to floor sweeping evening gowns. The fabrics were sheer and diaphanous tone-on-tone shades of grey,soft black with nude that gave an element of sensuality and mystery. Transparent layers were piled […]
