Glamour for Fall '08

I am so pleased to see classic glamour working it's way back into the collections this season! Baby Phat's Fall '08 line is inspired by art deco, flappers and Old Hollwood Glamour.

From Fashion Week Daily:
Kimora Lee Simmons whipped Roseland Ballroom into an art-deco frenzy, with modern-day flappers emerging in fringe, cloche hats, and plumed skirts. "Annabel Tollman did the styling," said Nylon's Dani Stahl, "which elevated it to a different level." The stylist's touch was evident in the Marlene Dietrich-esque lingerie--a new moment for Baby Phat. "Retro glam can go from the red carpet to the boudoir."

Gal in a Bowler? Yes please! White ruffled tuxedo shirt and dark talons. Chic and sharp.

Polka dot ascot and a tuxedo jacket. The epitome of suave.

Femine topper, masculine vest and garters. Delectable!

Ultra glam in a high neck sheer lace blouse. Bell cuffs add drama.

A bright color modernizes the classic fishnet, while geometric patterns make an Art Deco look.

The perfect flapper look! Bobbed hair, shift dress, swinging accessories and dark nails.

Check out the marcel waves!

The details are striking~ sequin applique, beaded cap, smokey ringed eyes and stained lips.

Dapper formal wear in dove grey.

Newsies! Love the tucked in sweater and high waisted trousers. Braces complete the look.

The bias cut of the gown, the draping at the waist is right off the silver screen. Film siren, yes?

A mosaic patterned clutch is definately art deco inspired.

It doesn't get better than a beautiful velvet smoking jacket with satin lapels.

The huge art deco earrings offset her cropped hair and the tweed shorts allow garters to peek through~ so cheeky!

Romantic waved hair, dark nails, big cocktail ring and a tortois shell cigarette holder. Vamp!

Top hat and bow tie.

A little peek of lingerie adds a twist to classic menswear.

The pinnacle of femme fatale. Smokey dark eyes and lips! My favorite.
