Guess what? I’ve officially graduated!My school does things a little differently and we get our certificates at Valedictory before we sit our final exams since we’ve passed our School Assessed Course work we’ve all technically passed (also we’ve theorised it’s partly so we’re not distracted by the hard to ignore thought of “what do I wear?”). It was a gorgeous night where we all reflected on the years past and celebrated!With my mumConfused a lot of people with my dress who thought the front of my dress was just glued on. HeheDress: My own design
Shoes: Sogui Eli Giorgia
Belt: My own design
Jewelry: ASOS, Swarovski and eBay
To class of 2011,You are all amazing, thank you for the memories and from the wise wise mouth of Taylor Swift:
Long live all the mountains we moved
I had the time of my life fighting dragons with you
I was screaming, long live the look on your face
And bring on all the pretenders, one day we will be remembered
Hold on to spinning around
Confetti falls to the ground
May these memories break or fall
And you take a moment
Promise me this
That you’ll stand by me forever
But if God forbid fate should step in
And force us into a goodbye
If you have children someday
When they point to the pictures
Please tell them my name
Tell them how the crowds went wild
Tell them how I hope they shine

It’s that time of year again, my favourite gathering of all of my favourite designers and muses! This year’s gala honoured Alexander McQueen with Florence and the Machine performing. Really couldn’t get better!This year was the year of young’ns, the Fanning sisters, Emily Browning, glee girls, and Taylor Swift were just some of the young Hollywood crop in attendance. I really shouldn’t be but I was surprised that beige/neutral was the colour for the night.
Blake Lively in ChanelTaylor Swift in J. Mendel(love the bodice, hate the skirt) Sarah Burton in her own McQueen designDakota Fanning in ValentinoMichelle Williams in Miu MiuBest Dressed: Diane Kruger in Jason WuMost breathtaking: Shalom Harlow in MarchesaBest make up look: Emma Stone in Lanvin and bright fuchsia lips Most Dramatic: Christina Ricci in Zac Posen Worst Dressed: Madonna in Stella McCartney, unflattering and wrinkledMost shocking: Anna Dello Russo in McQueen, yep I know, J’ADR her normally but nop, from the knee down it was a disaster. Flares, like that, just no… Cutest couple: Anna Wintour + Bee Shaffer, they were almost worst dressed but nawww the mother and daughter pair just look so cute together. Who were your favourites from the ball?

So, NYFW is off to a kickin’ start according to all the tweets! And I can’t wait to jump in and review them but everything on style.com is fairly blah right now (Yeah I know there are more websites to look at other than style.com but we’ve become so close, I feel like a trader whenever I’m on the other vogue websites). I’m sure those who are following me on twitter would have heard/seen the crazy storm that hit Melbourne (and Sydney), I was completely drenched, even with an umbrella! I had to buy a pair of thongs/flip flops because my school shoes and socks were soaked, first time I’ve worn thongs off the beach in a good 2-3 years. Check out these twitpics:
Lauren, standing in streetfilth!
Brave soul that Imelda captured.
Luckily the weather has settled to a nice 25 degrees celsius, perfect for today’s outfit:
Lace top: Lovelygirl
Silver foil skirt: My own design
Bracelet: My own design
Headband: My own design
Oh and look what Lauren gave me after a day of listening to me complain about how I couldn’t go to the Taylor Swift concert?
