The Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton

It was truly a fairytale wedding, and if you could only see me now: a messy nest of red hair, bleary eyed and delirious as I drag my sleepy self back to bed because I had some crazy idea to stay up all night and watch the Royal Wedding (which was super fun by the way). Despite currently speaking only gibberish because my tongue is fast asleep, I still have some magic energy left in my excited fingers to write and post some amazing photos of today's epic occasion, courtesy of Dailymail UK and What we now know? Alexander McQueen's Sarah Burton is the official designer of Kate Middleton's absolutely beautiful lace Grace Kelly inspired dress, the worst crimes of fashion today were committed by Royal cousins Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and their aunt Princess Anne, Victoria Beckham's 10 inch heels could've been a tad higher, the PM's wife Samantha Cameron wore Burberry and her HAT was apparently out sick, Prince Harry is absolutely charming and adorably disheveled, and Prince William never looked handsomer than when he kissed his bride twice on the Royal balcony...

"I Royally Do"

Unless you're still hibernating deep in the forest of winter or you live in a time capsule beneath the earth's surface, you are most likely holding your breath for the most anticipated Royal nuptials of the decade taking place this very Friday! Yes, the countdown is almost over for British balding royal Prince William and fresh-faced commoner Kate Middleton who will say their 'I Royally Do's' at Westminster Abbey on April 29th. The U.K. is in fact my own royal birthplace, and anglophile is high on my list of character descriptions. As a wee girl I fondly remember watching the original Royal wedding on my grandmother's telly, mesmerized, as Lady Diana Spencer and Prince Charles' royal coach made its crowd besieged way from St. Paul's Cathedral. William and Kate's big day is definitely the stuff of pomp and excitement, I mean you could just swoon with envy over the long and tender love story of these two college sweethearts; and you could cry your eyes out in bitter jealousy for the very same reason. Most amazing to me, however, is just how besotted we Americans have become with British wedding fever, from the never ending coverage of who designed Kate's wedding dress, to those lucky beasts who made the exclusive guest list, to what flavour of biscuits (US=cookies) Wills has commissioned for the big occasion... And what about all those sweet ladies who will be watching the big day from their television sets, wearing nothing but an enormous flowered Hat? In fact at the end of the day it could all just make one feel a little vomitous, so I'm thankful for Lydia Leith's Official Wedding Sick Bags...for those of us who've had it up to our nasal passages with Royal wedding chatter.  
You'll want to keep one handy on April 29th....!

Spring 2011 by Jil Sander

The bold color palette and graphic silhouettes of Jil Sander's Spring 2011 collection was a massive hit when it featured on the runways last September. In fact practically every Spring fashion spread features a color blocked ensemble by the label's Belgian designer, Raf Simons, and it's safe to say the collection remains unequivocally the essence of the colorful Spring season...
