The 2014 Colour of Couture Earth Hour Challenge

Image

Image

Hi again lovelies!  So I am quite behind in my blogging assignments of late and it dawned on me that I am WAY overdue to share one of the most important ones of all!  Here is my styling for the “Earth Hour Challenge” in this years Colour of Couture Top Model Competition.  Can you tell I had a lot of fun with this one?  The Earth Hour show took place on March 22nd (see I’m only a month late), and was quite an event.  As you can see there were countless designers sponsoring the event, and it was the live runway debut of the Colour of Couture candidates.  Our challenge?  “FOR EARTH HOUR YOU WILL STYLE COSMO COUTURE. THIS WILL BE FUN AND WILD SO THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX HOWEVER; YOU WILL HAVE TO USE YOUR PRIMARY COLORS OF BLUE/GREEN TO REPRESENT THE EARTH.”  I hope you enjoy my interpretation.

Style Card:

Dress: Eshi Otawara “Deadly Kitten” in Blue
Jewelery Set: Finesmith “Walk Like an Egyptian”
Face Jewelery: Eshi Otawara “Shakti Face Jewelery”
Hair: Discord Designs “Bobbi” in Intense Unnaturals (Marine)

Skin: Deesses Skins “Amanda” in Cappucino
Lipstick: MUA “Bicolor” Gift in Silver/ Blue
Blush: Dead Apples “Contour Blush” in Peach Dark

 With this styling I tried to blend organic elements of the Earth with both cosmic and spiritual elements. I wanted my outfit to reflect the fantastic mysteries of the Universe and where we Earthlings fit into the grand scheme of things. I styled myself as a mystical goddess, balancing the Earth effortlessly on my crown as I dance through the galaxy. We see this dance of the Goddess in all things, cycles, and seasons, and the more in tune we are to these cosmic patterns, the better off our planet and all of its inhabitants will be.

Happy Sunday my loves, hope you all had beautiful (if not short) weekends.  Today I finally got the chance to visit Rico’s Tea House, an absolutely lovely new SIM created by decorator extraordinaire RicoRacer Flux.  Now open to the public, Rico’s Tea House is the perfect place to come and relax, take gorgeous photos, and people watch (you are sure to see some of SL’s most fashionable enjoying the tea and sunshine).  What could be better for Sunday brunch than Miamai’s new silk jumper, the Bianka, just released as part of the new “Luxe Collection”.  And luxe it is…available in several colors and patterns, Bianka includes a HUD with options to change the look of the belt, as well as “normal” and “high heel” options in pant length.  I could just feel the silk against my skin this morning as I enjoyed a cup of coffee and watched the ships sail by.  A perfect end to the weekend, indeed.

Colour of Couture 2nd Runway Challenge! (Inspired by Thom Browne’s Spring Collection)

ImageImage

Image

What is up my loveliiiiiiiies??  As most of you know, I have the great honor of competing this year in the Colour of Couture Top Model Competition.  It has been my most challenging endeavor to date in my Second Life and the stakes are getting higher!  Our second Runway Challenge for the 2014 Colour of Couture Top Model Competition was to style a look inspired by the Thom Browne Spring 2014 collection.

In what was considered possibly “the creepiest” show from NY Fashion Week yet, Browne’s RL designs were displayed on a runway as cold and sterile as a mental hospital complete with surreal “nurses” and “mental patients”. Browne mixed this macabre ambience with a one of a kind blend of Baroque (all white, ruffled collars, exaggerated shoulders) with an almost 1940’s sensibility (bobby socks, snoods, pencil skirts). These elements combined with Browne’s idea of putting a “clown” on the runway (he had never seen one in real life), inspired one of the most talked about collections of the season.

Image

While styling my interpretation of this collection, I focused on the themes of Baroque, tones of white, and the idea of being caged and somewhat deranged.  All 14 contestants excelled at this styling and it was a show to remember!
