RUSSIAN FASHION WEEK
According to Vogue the reason why there is a seperate Russian fashion week is because they are fighting their hardest to make it up to the top to become like New York, Londan, Milan and Paris. Alexander Shumsky is the founder of Russian fashion week who has become a regular sighting in the other big fashion cities. Russian fashion is becoming more and more popular and see through out the states so it looks like ALexander Shumskys work has been paying off going to the other cities and watching their run ways.
GISELE'S SECOND WAVE
Supermodel Gisele Bundchen clearly did it right last year. The Brazilian supermodel was given intensive training before turning up to wave the checkered flag at her home country's Grand Prix and she must have done something right, because she's been asked back again this year. But no matter how great the catwalker's flag-waving skills, she will receive yet more training before the race this year. Spokesman Marcio Fonseca admits that organisers are keen to avoid the fiasco of Pele's appearance in 2002, when he failed to notice Michael Schumacher crossing the line. "There's no great secret to waving the flag," race director Carlos Montagner told the Brazilian paper, Diario de S. Paulo. "It's enough to pay attention to how things are going."
BAGS, BOOTS AND BANGLES
You can never have enough accessories, and the latest international collections provided plenty more excuses to make every look its own with a new bag, a couple of bangles, or to die for heels. Pharrell Williams showed off his first sunglaess a result of his collaboration with Louis Vuitton, while Eley Kishmimoto and Christian Dior also made giant sunglasses the trend of the season. The Prada beanies were some of the most talked about hats of the collections, while the MIU MIU purses had a young, good tiem girl appeal. Must have heels came in on the red carpet from YSL River Gauchie and wedged up heels from Marc by Marc Jacobs. Everybody will be piling on the bangles next season a trend started by the likes of Anna Molinari and John Galliano at Dior.
