MDS-BD/80- CHANEL VS. DIOR

i think there will always be a competition between dior and chanel- who has the best collection? the best show? the best event? the best clients? this weeks MDS best dressed list sets the stage- let’s see who wins.

last week Dior showed it’s resort collection in oxfordshire at Bienheim palace. the guests arrived via a vintage train (Doirient express) from london’s victoria station. then across the pond Chanel hosted a fine jewelry Dinner at the new york public library. both events were chic and beautiful. which one was better? i’ll let you decide.

i can weigh in on the winner, the the best dressed that is. For me it was lauren santo domingo in chanel, however, what made her chanel look the best was not necessarily her dress but the high pony tail and the Rochas silver ballet flats.

MAKING A SPLASH

a few weeks ago michael and i went to see the movie a bigger splash. i had no idea what the movie was about, but michael said tilda swinton was in it and the movie’s director was the same director from i am love, i love tilda, so i said “let’s go”.

the movie was about a rock star played by tilda who is on a italian get away with her new lover and her old love, the story is a little complex and over my head, but the fashion was sensational. tilda wears dior throughout the entire movie. the proportions, details and silhouettes are divine…a very simple wardrobe, but very elegant.

the movie was good, the clothes even better. tilda makes a splash in dior- worth seeing!

Update- I was just informed by a comment on post that this was a remake of the movie la piscine. ironically i just did a post on la piscine a few weeks ago- see post here.

MAINE MY WAY

you know i love a blue and white room, who doesn’t? when i saw the new july AD cover i think i literally made a noise of glee. the cover featured a picture of a blue and white indoor/outdoor room. even better, once i did a little more reading i realized it was a room by my friend suzanne kasler.

the vacation home in maine is pretty much all blue and white. get a tour here, and you must pick up the issue, there are so many more pictures in the magazine- more blue and white.

suzanne had decorated the young families home in georgia. the architecture is by cole & cole and the gardens by stephen mohr.

i always say “blue and white forever” and i mean it. i have never seen a blue and white room i didn’t love. if i was going to do maine, this is how i’d want to do it- maine my way!
