Christmas Fantasy World by Dior

All big department stores are preparing their windows for Christmas and no effort is too big for this special time of the year.

Printemps in Paris really went the extra mile by collaborating with Christian Dior, who created an amazingly little fantasy world for the 11 windows of the department store. The ateliers of the fashion house created 74 dolls dressed in iconic Dior outfits especially for this occasion. Marion Cotillard, Dior Ambassador, was there to reveal the Xmas windows for the public earlier this week. Time to book your city trip to Paris, even if it is just to do some window shopping.

In the windows of London department store Harrods, you can admire the female Disney characters in beautiful princess gowns created by Versace, Oscar de la Renta, Valentino and many more. Check out the video below highlighting all the dresses.  Of course the Louboutin Cinderella shoe is also on display in London.

Anyone knows what is happening at Saks Fifth Avenue in NYC?

Angels descending from heaven

Yesterday, New York was the city of angels… Victoria’s Secret Angels! Even the forces of Sandy could not hold them back. The show was as sexy and glamorous as ever with musical performances from Bruno Mars, Rihana and Justin Bieber. It’s the biggest fashion show on earth starring the most beautiful women. This show is clearly more about the models/angels than the lingerie.

Highlights: Adriana Lima hit the catwalk only 8 weeks after giving birth to her baby daughter! Alessandra Ambrosio got the honors of wearing the $2.5 million jewelled fantasy bra this year.

Being a Victoria’s Secret Angel is a dream for lots of girls. Not only comes it with a great pay check, but these girls have a super-natural model status.  Which comes at a price of course. They are super healthy and practically live in the gym. But for 7.3 million USD earnings per year, one can suffer a bit…


The full show will be broadcasted on December 4th, but you can already have a “taste” of it with this clip:
