Alaia in the flesh, well nearly

My regular readers will know that i am a huge fan of Mr Azzedine Alaia, him of the "sucky in i no longer have a tum" dress!  The most flattering, form fitting pieces of fabulousness - when i saw this spread for Remix i realised that it was predominantly styled with Alaia pieces.  And they have been shot and styled beautifully - so no brainer - here is my mid week offering for all my fellow fashion fans x





Who else loves the hair???

    J'adore Mr Alaia- and not just for his clothes, but for everything he stands for. One of the last true coutiriers left
