Actress, Mila Kunis has been setting the red carpet on fire on the promotional tour for her new movie “Friends with Benefits”. She was pictured at the New York  premiere in a stunning Lanvin red dress from the Resort 2012 Collection.

Mila is definitely one to watch!


Marchesa Resort 2012

I absolutely LOVE Marchesa. Its one of the first designers I run up to see whenever I am in Harrods. The Resort collection from Marchesa is fit for a princess – a mixture of refinement and restraint with femininity and poise. Soft pastels and citrus colours, coral and peppermint and white provide a myriad of colour whilst a pop of deep teal silks and the odd pop of fuschia complete the collection.

While Marchesa reached absolute high notes in their romance with floor-length chiffon for the Resort collection, they didn’t leave the cocktail hour unaccounted for. A metallic mini and some knee-length versions of their sweeping gowns are statements that are youthful, but without forsaking their Princessly grace. Absolutely stunning!

BCBG Max Axria Resort 2012

The Resort collection for 2012 from BCBG Max Azria takes inspiration from seventies muses including Marisa Berenson and Margaux Hemingway. This is evident in the free-flowing silhouettes and intricate hand embroidery of the pieces in the collection, yet it is still modern and beautiful. Think free spirit and ethereal styles and that’s what you get. A fashionable dream.

Reem Acra Resort 2012

Reem Acra’s Resort collection for 2012 takes inspiration from her love of nature by offering a garden of vibrant evening dresses. Voluminous, tiered silk and organza gowns in yellow daffodil, red rose, and purple iris resemble flower petals unfolding. Reem has adorned many of them with crystal-encrusted rose brooches, a layer of netting decked with tulle rosettes, or papier mâché-esque buds.

A collection fit for a princess.

Emilio Pucci Resort 2012

Pucci is one of the brands that I admire for delivering a certain “WOW” factor every season. Under Peter Dundas’ hand, the brand has become sultrier and sexier than ever, but the Resort collection for 2012 is slightly more relaxed and much more day-wearable.

The collection sees the launch of the denim line which features super-skinny, brightly colored jeans. There is also a lot of focus of on tailoring; specifically shrunken schoolboy pantsuits shown with sweet Peter Pan-collared cotton voile shirts. A jacket in a zebra pattern updated from the archives worn with blue jeans is also one of my favourite pieces.

Sheer kaftans, lace and plenty of colour make up this gorgeous collection. Roll on 2012. The fashion we are seeing so far is amazing!

Erin Fetherston Resort 2012

Erin Fetherston Resort 2012
Erin Fetherston’s first resort collection for her recently launched, ERIN line, is a plethora of delicate party dresses. Ethereal and romantic, it is a collection that leaves me feeling all girly and giddy. The set that the look book was shot at complements the clothing’s effervescence, with model Wang Xiao blowing bubbles and playing with dozens of jumbo-sized balloons.

My favourite piece is the strapless “petal dress”. With tiers of pleated ruffles, this is a similar dress to the one created for her namesake line a few seasons back, but tweaked the materials to accommodate her new, lower price point. And with the majority of pieces hitting at around $375 and under, these gorgeous dresses are priced to sell out fast!

Don’t forget that Erin’s collection is available to purchase in Dubai at one of our favourite boutiques, Symphony.

Missoni Resort 2012

Patterns and a kaleidoscope of colours. It’s what Missoni does best season after season and the Resort Collection for 2012 is just that! This entire collection makes me want to fast forward through fall so I can shop some of the gorgeous pieces it has to offer. It literally has everything; from coloured trousers to maxi dresses, shorts to knitwear, jackets to jumpsuits! I just wish I could carry off a turban as well as the models!
