The 80's ruled the runway at Saint Laurent. The collection was elegant and chic, I would expect no less from Saint Laurent. Some say it was a nod to Yves Saint Laurent, the man. I see it. But I also see other 80's references like an army of Robert Palmer women. The loudest reference I see, especially with the exaggerated ruffled looks and short-short skirts that border on tacky, come from one of the biggest TV dramas in the 80's. Remember Sammy Jo Dean Carrington? Cattiness aside, it is rumored that Hedi Slimane is leaving YSL as its creative director. Could this collection serve as clue? Vogue Runway suggested Slimane might assume the YSL couture helm. I guess we'll just have to brace ourselves with those larger-than-life shoulder pads and wait.
I grew up on shows like Charlie's Angels, The Love Boat, Dynasty and 90210. My top 10 television shows are probably all Aaron Spelling productions so you can imagine my excitement knowing that I get to meet Candy Spelling this week! She's in Atlanta promoting her new, best selling book titled Candy At Last. I'll be interviewing Candy for fashionadoTV and I can't wait. We have lots to talk about. I read her book in a matter of days. With stories about Dean Martin, Liz Taylor and her own daughter, Tori, I just couldn't put the book down.
[You too can meet Candy!] She'll be reading an excerpt from Candy at Last and signing books at the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta - MJCCA on May 7th at 7 pm (5342 Tilly Mill Rd.) and again on May 8th at 7 pm at the Barnes & Noble at 2900 Peachtree Rd. NE.
