Paris Fashion Week Day 3: Balmain

The Balmain army consisting the most famous models of today and the A-list Kardashian clan had its ‘armour shed’ in the words of the creative director Olivier Rousteing, who has made the fashion house such a success. The materials used were light and the silhouette relaxed compared to the skin-tight and heavily embellished bodycon we are used to seeing. The colours reflected the stripped-down theme with tones of khaki and copper. Reptile skin belts wrapped around the waists of the softer Balmain dresses and as usual, gold dominates the accessories. The collection ultimately reflects the celebration of the success of the brand and the reign of Olivier Rousteing.

✨ MTV VMA’s Best Dressed ✨

One of the music industry’s most talked about awards shows, the MTV VMAs, was held last night at Madison Square Garden in New York. 

Previous years have seen much controversy including the beginning of the Kanye West vs Taylor Swift drama and Nicki Minaj asking Miley Cyrus, “what’s good?”. 

This year however, was rather pleasant: Beyoncé topped Madonna’s record and became the most awarded VMA artist of all time, Kanye West used his 4 minute window to showcase his video for Fade, featuring Teyana Taylor and as well as winning the Michael Jacksom Video Vanguard Award, Rihanna performed 4 times and sang virtually all of her songs and Drake gushed about his love for her. 

However, I’m sure there’s still a question that comes to mind. Who was the best dressed? That’s what we want to know. See the red carpet royalty below:

Hilarious Fashion Brand Defintions


Monday evening blog-post research for Molicia, often means losing myself through Tumblr, infinitely scrolling and thinking, ‘what was I supposed to be doing again?’. Today, however, my content-digging, okay… procrastination, lead me to Internet gold. Like one of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs discovering the jewels in the mine, I came across a hidden gem. 

‘How I see fashion brands’ by lizthefangirl.tumbr.com is Tumblr treasure. If this doesn’t cure any high-fashion fan’s Monday blues, I don’t know what will…

Valentino: so we want to channel royalty with some gilded details –

Dolce and Gabbana: [covered in gold foil] DID SOMEONE SAY GILDED

Elie Saab: [embroidering at super human speed] MORE SWAROVSKI CRYSTALS AND DETAILED-ASS PATTERNS

Zuhair Murad: YES BITCH LIKE BORDERLINE TACKY 

Balmain: [from halfway up the Kardashians’ asses] WHO THE FUCK JUST MENTIONED DETAILED-ASS PATTERNS AND BORDERLINE TACKINESS

Ralph & Russo: Oh my god stop

Giambastatuatsa Valala (Giambattista Valli): [deadpan] more tulle

Marchesa: More feminine

Gucci: More ruffles

Versace: Shut the fuck up Gucci no one likes ruffles they like sharp lines 

Armani Privé: [mouthing] yaaaasss

Dior: Patterns are in

Chanel: [smoking a cigarette, thick French accent] this is correct. Onto the dress we put one thousand very small Karl Lagerfeld faces, it is good, it is chic

Alexander McQueen: [sewing quietly, giving side-eye]

Jean Paul Gaultier: [snaps fingers] A HUMAN LAMP

Moschino: A HUMAN STAIRCASE FEATURING A NAME BRAND

Alexander Wang: [softly] a human

Stella Mcartney: stfu my dad is a Beatle all y’all bow down

Please note: These are not my true views, it’s just a humour post!
