- What We’re Loving: Gucci’s Love Parade Show
The new collection by Alessandro Michele was presented live in a grand outdoor catwalk on Hollywood Blvd in Los Angeles on Tuesday, Nov. 2.
The Creative Director’s second collection in the centenary year of the House was star-studded, giving us bright, bold, and luxurious fashion moments for the ages at the brand’s pre-fall 2022 show.
This collection emphasized velvet suits, houndstooth tailoring, elaborate camp floor-sweeping boas, and bags to perfectly complement the hand of the person wearing it. Get out your fur, silk, velvet, sunnies, revamped lace, costume gloves, and glitzy accessories because in 2022, that’s what you need in your closet
2. What’s Stealing The Show: Lady Gaga’s purple dress and Bimini Bon Boulash at the House of Gucci Premiere in London
Lady Gaga proved that only one can dramatically fashion the way she does at the House of Gucci Premiere in London. Wearing a valorous tulle Gucci dress on the red carpet, she strutted with a queenly purple wave of sheer fabric trailing behind. Accessorized with mesh-knit fishnet thigh-high tights and platform black edgy boots, she set the bar for red carpet fashion, and the bar is as high as the platform boots she wore.
However, Bimini Bon Boulash seemingly met Gaga on the fashion front wearing a high fashion number resembling the Matrix if the Matrix were created by Gucci. The one-shoulder black velvet dress, along with bulky black leather gloves and sky-high boots, reminded us that simplicity and drama can go hand-in-hand if done well.
3. Ariana Grande’s The Voice Looks
Ariana Grande’s fashion has been as impressionable as her voice on the hit show, The Voice. Week after week, she shows off not one but many different styles influenced by fashion moments in history, lavish beading, fashion icons, and now the movie Thirteen Going on 30. Wearing the dress inspired by the character “Jenna Rink” played by Jennifer Garner in the 2000’s classic 13 Going on 30, Grande made the designer Donatella Versace proud as she flaunted the multi-colored dress with ease while judging at her first live show of The Voice.
4. CFDA highlights
Emily Blunt hosted the 2021 Council of Fashion Designers or CFDA fashion awards. Fashion highlights included Anya Taylor-Joy, winner of the CFDA Awards, Zendaya, Kid Cudi, Karrueche Tran, Dove Cameron, Aubrey Plaza, Drew Berrymore, and of course, Vera Wang. Over the top, sexy, playful, or sweet- the eyes were entertained at CFDA this year thanks to these fashion risk-takers.
5. Theme of 2021 Winter Fashion: Mood Booster
After the chaotic Covid depressing last two years, it’s no wonder designers are setting the tone for 2021 fashion trends with an emphasis on happiness.

Recent runways have given us a glimpse into this winter’s closet, and it reveals nothing but optimism. Dress for the mood you want, not the mood you have this winter, and get inspired by 2021’s winter fashion.
