YSL Reboot: Yves Saint Laurent to Become Saint Laurent Paris

Credit: Pretaporter

Yves Saint Laurent, the founding father of the renowned fashion house of the same name died in 2008 and now the powers that remain at the helm of the brand have announced that YSL will soon be known simply as SLP, Saint Laurent Paris. This is a very bold and not to mention risky move, changing the name of a successfully established and legendary brand.

What do you think?

Cutesy Couture Front Row at the Jean-Paul Gaultier Spring/Summer 2012 Haute Couture collection show in Paris

VERY CUTE STYLE

Shy'm

Sonam Kapoor

Noemie Lenoir

I didn’t even bother to check the dictionary to see if “cutesy” is an actual word or slang, these ladies were seriously styling front-row at the JPG S/S 2012 show that I had to run and report it, so please pardon any jargon. 🙂

Sonam Kapoor & Freida Pinto Take Paris by Storm in Chanel at the Grand Palais Chanel Paris-Bombay Show

BOLLYWOOD OR BUST

Okay, so technically Freida Pinto is not a Bollywood actress but that has never stopped the media from pegging her as a one despite the fact that she has never appeared in a Bollywood film thus far, so I’m just going to jump on that bandwagon for the sake of this post. I would be more politically correct and say “Indian Actress” but that does not rhyme with my catch phrase. 

More importantly, just how tall is Sonam Kapoor? Just look at how she towers  above Freida Pinto like a supermodel. Even in what looks like at least three or four-inch heels on Pinto.

Both Pinto and Kapoor were beautifully draped in Chanel at the Paris-Bombay show by Chanel in Paris on Tuesday night, each woman sporting a design from the Spring 2012 Collection.

Gorgeous!

What We Saw & Loved from the Versace For H&M Fashion Collection – Fashion Show + Verdict

FASHIONWIDGET’S TOP PICKS

FRONT ROW GUESTS↓

Emma Roberts & Jessica Alba

Selma Blair & Jennifer Hudson

Chace Crawford, Jessica Alba, and Abbie Cornish

Blake Lively & Helena Christensen

Trends we loved: The Black scarves on the heads of the models looked utterly tres chic, absolutely loved the waist-length extensions which gave the outfits a very urban-club feel, the black and gold theme, the gold studs and gold accenting, the fringe tassel dresses, the raccoon eye makeup, ankle length lace-up boots (especially the teal and black ones) and the skin-tight LBDs.

Teal and Black Lace-up boots

Trends we would pass on: The Choker necklaces seemed a bit overdone and the sequin mini dresses looked a bit ill-fitted on the models (maybe it had something to do with the lining or lack there-of).

Sequin Mini Dress

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: The Versace for H&M Collection earns an A+ for presentation, simply loving the fact that they did an actual fashionweek-esque runway show displaying the ensembles which go on sale November, 19th 2011 at participating H&M stores everywhere. Though the final grade for the actual products will be determined once the items reach store shelves and racks, when we are actually able to inspect, select & buy them.  Hopefully, this does not turn out to be another Missoni for Target event.
