Couture High Notes

Alexandre Vauthier

Fashion month is slowly but surely crawling up on our calendars. Scrumptious appetizers have been already served in the form of exquisite haute couture looks.  An array of frothy tulles, swift silks, and glinting embellishments were amongst the ambrosial hors d’ouevres. I am leaving you with with a brief recap of what have been my top looks so far.

Countryside Cabin

A friend of mine owns a small house that clings to one of the sides of San Salvador’s volcano. It is a very cozy cabin that houses a garden double its size, with striking views of the city. Last week, for a change, I burrowed the place and went over to catch a breath of clean air. Here are a few shots we took from our visit to the place.

Punch it Off!

As promised, here is another of the sporty looks I worked on with Simán. My trainer knows me too well, and he is very much aware of my hate relationship with cardio, however it is inevitable that I should dedicate some time every day to it. This is why, he is always trying to find alternatives to the typical 20 minute treadmill runs. Kickboxing has proven to be amongst my favorite options, it is a great way to release energy and get my heartbeat up.

Top 5: 2017 Golden Globes

I know, I know this post comes a bit late, but hey, better later than never! Award season has started. Back when I was living in London, as a fashion assistant to a celebrity stylist, I particularly remember this time of the year as one of the most hectic, nail-biting moments of them all. Now that I am on the other side of the lens, it all seems easier, more effortless, and definitely more glamorous. So with the tranquility of one who is only a spectator, but with the eye of one who is aware of what happens behind closed curtains, here are my top 5 looks from this year’s Golden Globes.

Let’s begin with Emily Ratajkowski. This Reem Acra look was perfection. The colour, the hair, the Hollywood glam, it was a flawlessly concocted attire. I am always searching for that one outfit that harmonizes sexiness and elegance, and to me, this was it. Allow me to say that it was Gold!
