You may have noticed a new silhouette crop up over the past few seasons, with billowing pant legs, shirt sleeves that balloon at the elbow and backless prom dresses that have strings hanging off in a haphazard manner. Simply put, these are clothing fit for a life of leisure, one where the stress of child care and commuting is absent.

Such was the feel at the Hellessy show today, where designer Sylvie Millstein proved her prowess at reinventing that aforementioned silhouette, season after season. Her Spring/Summer 2016 iteration included a memorable red silk dress with a fiery ruffle, a vivid green skirt paired with a voluminous–albeit string laden–white blouse and some complicated pant/skirt combinations. Her models teetered across aqua rugs (clearly from ABC Home & Carpet) on Christian Louboutin heels, though some donned suede Adidas with their sweeping hemlines. But regardless, these were outfits that would make even the most banal task seem difficult. Driving a car with sleeves that extend well past your fingertips is not an option, so Uber is the only way.

Hellessy is a favorite among jewelry designer Jennifer Fisher and Eye Swoon blogger Athena Calderone. While yes, these are working women, they are also members of the upper crust. But so is Millstein, who had gigs in buying at Chanel and marketing at Givenchy before striking out on her own as a designer. Sheoften invites press into her sprawling Soho apartment, which she shares with her financier husband, Lee Millstein, and their two children.

A ruffled confection from Brock Collection

Other designs on the runway that is fit for the life of a rich lady were seen at Brock Collection. A white leather military-style dress was one signifier of this, as were purple knee-high crocodile boots and a white skirt with a distended ruffle down the side. The styles were refined, yes, should there be any type of staining matter around, say, red wine, these pieces would be goners. Tom Ford‘s exuberant dinner show had some pieces that could be grouped into this category, but that comes as little surprise. A louche patchwork fur coat will cost you nearly $20,000 while a leather top and skirt outfit will run you $5,300. Though if you’re interested (and your bank account will allow it) all of those pieces can be purchased now.

Keep in mind, rich lady fashion is not necessarily bad. These styles don’t recall ladies who lunch in boring pastel suits and hairspray helmet hair, but rather modern women who are unencumbered by daily chores. They are women with perfectly tousled hair, impossibly high heels, a career and, of course, money. Consider this is a new form of aspirational backless evening dresses, but one that’s not too far out of reach. Sure, your kids might trip over your billowing trousers and you may accidentally drag your excess sleeves through a bowl of hummus, but if you look good–and rich–what’s the harm?

Listen, we report on talent beauty vloggers transforming themselves into famous celebrities all of the time, but it truly takes a lot to impress us. So when PONY Makeup decided to tackle a Kylie Jenner makeover, we took notice. I mean this is the same woman he transformed herself into Taylor Swift in the most epic way.

What we really love about PONY Makeup's tutorial is that she includes the name of every singe product she is using as she uses it, like Benefit's High Brow Pencil, Urban Decay's Naked Palette, and Clio Concealer, among others.

This is the closest we've seen any vlogger come to replicating Jenner's perfectly pouty look. But we're game for any challengers to enter the ring for a transformation matchup.

Not long ago Formaldressaustralia sponsored an activity to support the Rio Olympic Games and to enjoy the happy time with its customers. This time, Formaldressaustralia announces the promotion of its new collection –Formal backless prom dresses Adelaide.

marieprom evening dresses

Maybe most of you have heard of Formaldressaustralia, or even you are a fan of it. However, there are still some young girls who have known little about Formaldressaustralia. So let’s just use some minutes to introduce it. As seen from the name, Formaldressaustralia is an Australia based formal dress online store, pretty professional and reliable one to many ladies. It does not offer local dress store service or pick-up. But because of the whole online shopping process and lack of local store decoration and rent charges, all the dresses at Formaldressaustralia are really cheap, normally at the price of only 30% of the same dress you see at the local store. But still the dresses are in good quality. There is a Style Gallery at the top of its website where customers show out their prom look or party look. If you have not prepared for the coming event yet, why not give it a try?

Most ladies may get confused by the name of the category. A lot of collections may be searched online by colour, size or style such as champagne formal dresses, plus size formal dresses and mermaid formal dresses but seldom one store will divide their products according to the area.

Adelaide is the capital of the South Australia with a Mediterranean climate. Based on the local conditions of hot and warm weather and customs, Formaldressaustralia produces this collection especially for the local fashion ladies. The design team has learnt from the local fashion trends. Added with the local characteristics and new fashion trends, this array comes out. The dresses there are made of easy breezy chiffon, elegant satin and refined tulle with exquisite lace. Although they are in usually silhouettes like mermaid and column, they are still different from the normal collection. Higher waist, bead work pattern or some other special designs show the unique status of the new local collection, maybe a milestone for Formaldressaustralia. Besides the local Adelaide style, Formaldressaustralia plans to create some other ones in cities like Brisbane, Sydney and Canberra. Besides the design thing, Formaldressaustralia CEO also said that they are planning to set some Formal Dress Shops Brisbane because some of their supporters hope to see more and try more on. However, it seems hard to carry the plan out. Once the local store is established, Formaldressaustralia might lose its competitive advantage. So it may lose the price war and goes on another luxe way.

No matter what way Formaldressaustralia will go on, its high quality low price products are still flattering among the ladies at Australia now. And more and more charming formal dresses are welcomed.

Milan is widely known as one of the world’s great fashion capitals, and its main annual Fashion Week in two weeks (there are four Milan fashion weeks annually!) vies with Paris as the industry’s most important.

But fashion lovers come to Milan to shop all year round, and there are few if any neighborhoods in the entire world as densely packed with top stores as the city’s famed “Golden Quadrilateral,” a rough square of four boutique-lined retail fantasy streets, all within easy strolling distance, near the Piazza Duomo in the very heart of the city.

Milan has several standout luxury hotels, and I’ve been to a few, but in a business where location can be everything, none rival the spot occupied by the Four Seasons. Approaching a quarter century, it was just the legendary brand’s second hotel in all of Europe after London, converted from a historic convent. It is the perfect mix of old world charm and modernity, urban full service and urban oasis. In the past three years the hotel has undergone significant improvements, adding a courtyard garden dining option to its fine dining restaurant for a purely Italian country escape in the middle of the business-focused city, a lavish and well executed new full service spa and pool, and new rooms and suites, including a few with private outdoor garden seating. There are also over 100 standout stores (think Hermes, Prada, Gucci, Brioni) within a short walk of the front door.

With a perfect combination of luxury, warmth, comfort and white glove remember-your-name-service, it’s no surprise that the Who’s Who of the fashion world, such as Vogue editor Anna Wintour and designer Karl Lagerfield, have been staying here during Fashion Week for two decades, and the hotel is also the regular home away from home for many top Formula One drivers and teams during the city’s annual race, held this past weekend.

In partnership with its equally impressive sister hotel in Florence, Four Seasons’ Italy collection has recently unveiled a slate of new, unique and insider experiences to further set its hotels apart in the top tier of accommodation options. The newest such program, launched in honor of Fashion Week, is “Taste & Shine.” Many of the models and attendees need to multi-task during the hectic time while looking good, and the Four Seasons Hotel Milan has taken a custom offering from the fashion set and extended it to all its women guests. The program combines a room service breakfast featuring healthy delicacies with in-room beauty care to start the day in style. A Spa Specialist can do hair styling, an express manicure, or make up – while you eat. Designed for those on the go, express beauty options include a nail polish that dries in just 7 minutes, or for those in high heels all day, a 25-minute foot massage during breakfast. Other choices include a face mask by Sarah Chapman to make skin immediately look rested and radiant, an eye mask, or hairstyling with express blow dry. All packages include in-room breakfast and range from €70-190. The program will launch during Milan Fashion Week later this month.

It's safe to say Fleur Verhoeven is well and truly over her short-lived reality TV romance.

The 26-year-old Bachelor NZ winner has teamed up with photographer boyfriend Richard Wood, to launch a bespoke wedding photography service.

The couple, operating under the name Weddings with Fleur and Richard, offer tailored wedding photography packages priced between $6,500 and $8,900.

Fleur and Jordan - before things turned sour.

"With our wedding packages you do not have one photographer recording your day... you have two," the duo's new website reads.

"Whilst Richard loves to shoot creative pieces of art, Fleur enjoys the candid fun and emotional moments of the day."

Verhoeven announced the new business venture via Instagram on Sunday night.

"I'm actually in the process right now of having someone pay me to talk about [my new relationship] right now, so unfortunately, I can't say much," she said at the time.

The former bachelorette made headlines in May after season two Bachelor Jordan Mauger called time on the short-lived reality TV romance - a mere 72 hours after the final episode aired around the country.

Verhoeven broke the news to the Kiwi public during a last minute interview on TV3's Story.

"I think that's a case of miscommunication, to be honest. I remember texting him beforehand saying 'I'm going to do an interview' and he understood," she said after the interview aired.

"Maybe he didn't realise that it was going to be a television interview."

At the time, Verhoeven said she and Mauger "were not really in contact".

"We don't really talk. No, it is what it is. There's no hard feelings there. I'm grateful he [broke it off] two days later rather than lead me on when feelings have started to really develop."

Nowadays, Verhoeven and new boyfriend Wood are too busy concentrating on capturing real life Kiwi romances.
