Going Vogue. Living Vogue. Being Vogue.

As a 16 year old living outside of Washington, D.C., I am eager to express myself in a world of emerging fashion and conservative style. “Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.” – Yves Saint Laurent

2011 VMAs: Best Dressed

On Sunday night many celebrities walked the black carpet as they arrived at the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles. On the far left, a pregnant, glowing Beyonce stole the show in this orange Lanvin dress. I love the contrast of her large emerald ring against her vibrant dress. Zoe Salanda rocked her black, beaded Barbara Bui mini, while Victoria Justice looked very age appropriate in silver Thayer mini dress. Katie Holmes made an unexpected appearance, looking fabulous in her eye-catching Azzedine Alaia woven dress.

 

Wish List

I have always wanted an Alaia dress and I am determined to own one in my lifetime. Azzedine Alaia opended his first atelier in Paris in the 1970s. He is known for his body con dresses, which involve intricate fabric weaving, and his ability to highlight women’s bodies – he has earned the title, “King of Cling” . His creations have been worn by celebrities and fashionistas such as Victoria Beckham, Mariah Carey, Michelle Obama, and Kim Kardashian.
