Today, the best fashion scenes are not the catwalks but the streets where people are dressed with style, look uniquely and sexy.
Alexander McQueen (British, 1969–2010) “Oyster” Dress Irere , spring/summer 2003 Ivory silk organza, georgette, and chiffon Courtesy of Alexander McQueen Photograph © Sølve Sundsbø / Art + Commerce Andrew Bolton : One of the highlights in this gallery is a dress called the “Oyster” Dress, which is made up of hundreds and hundreds of layers of silk organza, almost like a mille-feuille pastry. And the collection told the story of a shipwreck at sea and the subsequent landfall in the Amazon, and it was peopled with pirates, conquistadors, and Amazonian Indians. And I think that what’s interesting about this particular dress is you see how McQueen evolved as a designer in terms of the fact that he was always well known as a tailor. With this particular dress, you see a much softer approach. As Sarah Burton explains:

Things are picking up and getting better, but it's a slow process. Thank you all again so much for your support and encouragement (both through comments and emails) over the past two weeks.
Although “perfect” is a relative term, this method for curling hair is pretty much perfect by my standards, mostly because it isn’t fussy. While I’m a sucker for both ringlets and Californian waves, I like my own curls somewhere in between: relaxed but bouncy. Mermaid-like.
When Cleopatra bathed with milk, she had a reason for this. Milk has alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), making it one of the best homemade facial cleansers . It makes your skin supple and baby soft. Apart from milk, AHAs are present in vinegar, grapes, lemon juice, oranges, tomatoes, blackberries, and apple juice. They help to break down the bonds of dead skin cells on your face, thereby removing them easily and leaving your face clean and fresh.
