Posted in Fashion, Marc Jacobs with tags , on March 25, 2011 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

We’re so excited to introduce to our reader our new guest editor Ryan Deleon from Portland, Oregon! Here is his fabulous report on his trip to New York Fashion Week at Marc Jacobs Fall-Winter 2011 collection!

Back in November, my company (Nordstrom) launched a contest for the manager that sold the most Marc Jacobs during the holidays. The winner got a round-trip flight to New York, 2 nights at the James Hotel and a ticket to his Fall/Winter 2011 runway show!!! As soon as I found out about it, I knew I HAD to win!!! After 6 weeks of hard work and countless hours of stressing, I found out that I won! Like beat everybody in the company. Me. From Portland, Oregon… I was elated!

When I landed in New York, I found out Marc had arranged a car service that came and whisked me away to my hotel! It felt like a scene from a movie… I arrived early in the afternoon, so I had plenty of time to shop! I hit up a few of my must-sees in SoHo, like the new Kardashian store, Dash! Amazing! The city was invigorating, but it all felt so right. It was like I was home. I knew right away that I was going to have an amazing trip!

The super stylish celebrity stylist and reality star Rachel Zoe always dressing her Hollywood star clients in famous designers like Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors to Vera Wang. With her very own unique style, her looks has been copied and emulated by many fashionistas.

In the September 2010 issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Rachel Zoe is in a stunning spread that features her with some seriously sought-after American designers. Harper’s Bazaar cleverly using the common use phrase that Rachel always use whenever she saw something super fabulous “I Die! ” and Fusing fashion and fantasy, images depict what would actually happen if the stylist to the stars really did “die” for fashion with the designers themselves going in for the kill!

Photographed by Douglas Friedman, my favorite one is the impeccably dressed Michael Kors digging Rachel’s fashionable grave, with the perfect accessories to murder! “To die for” fabulous Michael Kors high heels and handbags! (Click on the photo to see it in full size)

Michael Kors syas to the magazine: ” The perfect accessory can make the difference between looking blah and totally to die for
 

I also love the one of Vera Wang offering Rachel a cocktail and secretly pouring poison from her ring into the drink! haha. (Click on the photo to see it in full size)

Vera Wang tells the magazine: “I only want to kill Rachel when I don’t land one of her fabulous clients for the Oscars!”
 

How can we not love the photo of Marc Jacobs tied down Rachel on an electrocution chair, dipping her feet in a bucket of water and pretend to give her the “Perm” of her life! LOL (Click on the photo to see it in full size)

Marc Jacobs says to the magazine: “Rachel’s energy is electrifying…and often shocking! ”
 

Here is a video of behind the scene of this fabulous photoshoots!

You can check out more to-die-for photos below or go to HarpersBazaar.com  for the entire story.

Finally!! Marge Simpson has peeled off her tired green tube dress and cheap pearls for something just a little more FAB!! I love this Harper’s (August, 2007) spread. it’s beautifully ridiculous and so well done!

It was genius to include the ultimate supermodel
Linda Evangelista, as she is in my opinion, just as much an icon of the last decade as the hilariously jaundiced family. Watching these fabulous illustrations makes me say J’adore Bazaar! Here’s the spread itself, along with the garments the illustrations were based on from each designers.


VERSACE
& Donatella

Linda looks fierce as she does in the flesh and Donatella, well… Donatella kinda looks like a fleshed-out cartoon character anyway. Marge looks as fresh-faced as the day Homer married her.
CHANEL & Karl Lagerfeld

Lanvin & Elbaz
Jean Paul Gaultier

Viktor & Rolf

Louis Vuitton

& Marc Jacobs



Aren’t these illustrations fabulous!? ok, Me & Mei-Mei need to go now, ’cause Lacroix is waiting for me for the final fitting of the Couture gown I just got last week! Au revoir for now !! xoxo Alan + mei-mei the pug 🙂
