maribel verdú in maxmara

The young Rachel Bilsons and the Mischa Bartons of Hollywood have been spotted wearing FW06 MaxMara, but I've never seen this on an older woman. Maribel Verdú (of Y Tu Mama También fame) wore sequined MaxMara to the LA Screening of Pan's Labyrinth.

Yes, it's so two seasons ago. Yes, so many other girls have worn it, but it's just interesting seeing a woman looking so elegantly covered-up when in contrast, a lot of her films feature her wearing the skimpiest of outfits or nothing at all.

Besides, I'm just excited for Milan! I'll be sad though, because I'll be in school again while all y'all who got the dough to fly to Italy will be there!

Late, late, late again:

Thursday, Feb 8: At Badgley Mischka, you just have to stay till the end for all the gorgeous dresses! Adored the icy nude lips, precise cuts, and astounding, exquisite simplicity Calvin Klein. You know it'll be stunning when it's Francisco Costa. Purple is everywhere! I thought Zac Posen's Spring 2007 collection was a letdown but he really took it all the way this time! Finishing his shows of course are those dramatic gowns, a Zac trademark.

Friday, Feb 9: The jersey boys are starting to embrace accessories and separates. Yesterday's Costello Tagliapietra woman wore those beautifully-draped creations with heels. Today's Costello Tagliapietra woman wears gloves and considers incorporating a skirt, well-cut pants, or a coat into her outfit. It was an unusually dark palette for the designers who usually work with brights and pastels even in the fall, but I liked it anyway. I was a bit puzzled at Chado Ralph Rucci. The show was a bit long. That said, there were some standout outfits like the ruffled dress Nataliya Gotsii was wearing and the ensemble on Alexandra Tomlinson. There were also some puzzling ones like the jumbled heap of fur that was close to smothering Katia Kokoreva and the Yeti overload on Élise Crombez.

February 17 is when all the surprises begin. Are you excited?
