Breaking out of the Project Runway title, Christian Siriano’s Fall 2011 collection at Lincoln Center during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week was an ode to petals, flower petals that is. A dark collection, some beautiful colors mixed in. Jackets, trousers, beautiful dresses and romantic prom gowns were super impressed. Today we would like to focus on prom dresses of this fantasy show.
Fantasy Prom Dresses
The collection was reminiscent of a dream, filled with floaty fabrics and feathered edges. The talented designer did not disappoint with his collection that was at once dark, moody, elegant and fierce all at once. Christian Siriano fall 2011 prom dressing were dreamy and lady like. It included a moody-hued orchid-print organza cocktail dress with a pretty swirling drape that ended in a rosette on one shoulder, a flowing green printed strapless gown and a long-sleeved, embellished mini. There was everything a fashionista can ask for like jackets, skirts, pants, as well as beautiful dresses and fantasy gowns. Confections of orchids ornately adorned short prom dress while the same theme carried on throughout the second half of the collection in a multi-tier one shoulder gown with sheer chiffon connection connecting two ruffle orchid hemlines, one at the knee and the other grazing the floor, his finale was a pink petal ball skirt paired with a sheer grey chiffon top.
Ruffled and Tulled Ball Gowns
As always, black was the main color used and the silhouettes were powerful and feminine. The palette was mostly black but anything but boring on account of the incredible detail, impeccable fit, fabulous fabrics and amazing textures used in each look, from tailored modern takes on the suit to jaw dropping ball gowns. Looks like a long tulip skirt with a lean black turtleneck, suit with a portrait collar and awkward ruffled skirt, massive petal-pink ball skirt paired with a simple gray silk tee looked chic. Christian upped the ante with some ruffles and tulle showed up inth ball gowns.
Stylish Cocktail Dresses
Aside from the over the fantasy gowns, Siriano sent out beautiful cocktail dresses in moss greens, blacks and a subdued honeysuckle pink color. He also sent out a some suits and coats appropriate for daytime, showing that he can create both out of this world fantasy gowns and everyday pieces for the woman who wants to have it all.

Plus size wedding gowns
It is every woman’s dream to look her best on her wedding day. Most women spend months looking for the perfect wedding gown but, if you wear a size over 14, if you are curvy, or overweight, the task of looking for the perfect wedding gown can easily transform into a nightmare. You look into wedding magazines and bridal shops and all you see are slim models wearing dream dresses. What about some -real shape- brides? Surely not all brides fit into a size 12 or under dress, and surely not all brides feel like starving themselves before their big day. So what to do? Where to look?
Here you will find some tips on how to choose the best wedding dress for your shape, some places where you can buy them or order them made to measure and lots of photos to bring inspiration for your dream dress.
Tips to buy a plus size wedding dress:
Start your search as early as possible. The more time you have to look for your dress, the less stressed for time that you will be.
Instead of checking on wedding magazines, check on professional photographer’s portfolios. They do have photos of brides of all shapes with all types of dresses so you can have a better idea of what would suit your shape.
Do not buy a dress in the hope that you will lose weight. That will only stress you and ruin the fun of preparing for your wedding day.
Try your wedding dress with the underwear that you are going to wear on the day. A made to measure corset can make a dramatic difference to your shape. Having said that, do not try anything too drastic. If you are not used to wearing a corset then shrinking your waist 2 inches is acceptable but squeezing yourself to make your waist 6 inches smaller can end up with you bruising or even fainting during the wedding ceremony.
When you try your dress don’t just try it standing up in front of a mirror try also to sit down with it to check that it is both comfortable when sitting and does not bulge in an unsightly way. Can you move properly? Can you dance with your dress? Does it look nice from the back?
Informal wedding dresses look wonderful in plus size women. They are simpler in style, fabric and detail than traditional wedding gowns. They are perfect for garden and beach weddings, although they can also be worn for more formal ceremonies.
You might also want to consider wearing a less harsh coloured wedding dress. An all white dress in a full figured woman is not always flattering. You might want to consider a combination of colours like the Scottish tartan wedding dresses, or -medieval combinations-. If you prefer a more traditional look, you can always try shades of cream and ivory instead of a stark white.
Plus size wedding dresses made to measure:
At curvety.com dresses are custom made to your measurements ensuring the perfect fit. Made to measure means you can have your perfect dress whatever your clothes size and with the perfect fit comes perfect accentuation of your glorious curves.
Problem area: Arms.
If you have thick chubby arms, or if you have lost lots of weight and your arms are saggy, it is preferable to choose a dress with sleeves. There are plenty of lovely long sleeved wedding gowns that will help disguise thick arms. Loose sleeves made in flowing transparent material would be perfect.
If you don’t want to wear long sleeves or if you are getting married in the height of summer and want to wear a sleeveless dress, the best option is to wear a cover up over your arms. You can still wear even a strapless dress if you team it up with a lace shawl over your shoulders. It will look classy and will disguise your problem area without making you overly hot.
A 3/4 sleeve lace bolero can also be a good cover up for saggy arms. Just make sure that the sleeves are not tight and the bolero does not have extra decorations such as sequin, embroidered pearls, plumes or stones. A simple cut bolero is better to draw attention away from your arms.
Avoid spaghetti straps. A strapless dress or a thick strapped dress is much better to disguise thick arms.
Avoid very large pouf sleeves extending from shoulder to elbow.
Avoid very short fitted sleeves that just cover the shoulders.Problem area: A big bust
If you are heavy at the bust a plunging neckline will ease your silhouette.
Wedding gowns that are simple, without a lot of frills, decorations and extra fluff, on the top area, are often good choices.
Make sure you have the support you need under your wedding gown by wearing the right undergarments.
Avoid shiny fabrics on the top of your dress.
Problem area: Tummy
Empire style dresses are perfect to disguise a bulging tummy. The waist just skims over your tummy area and the slim skirt elongates your silhouette.
A-line dresses are also very flattering if you do not have a small waist.
Avoid dresses that are too tight or figure hugging.
Problem area: Hips
If you are heavy at the hips but with a small waist, a full skirt might disguise your hips and enhance your small waist.
If you have a slim top you can benefit from wearing a Princess style dress. Enhance your top slim part and disguise your heavy bottom part with a full skirt.
Mermaid style dresses can also work for your shape if you are curvy as in an -hourglass shape- and not too heavy on the hips.
If you are under 1.60m. and overweight you might want to consider wearing a short dress. You can choose different lengths to flatter your size, anything from under the knee to a ballerina ankle length dress.
Wearing a short wedding dress does not mean that you cannot wear a long train to elongate your silhouette and wedding dress.

Today, fashion for girls has become a very important part of their lives. Whether they are in need of a new dress or not, they will surely be tempted to buy those newly designed dresses which are displayed in the local shopping malls. It is true that fashion helps improve one’s overall beauty and personality, but there are certain things that you need to be aware of when deciding which fashion to go with. There are certain basic rules which need to be followed so that you can improve your physical beauty and not damage it.Here are some wonderful fashion tips for girls which they cannot go wrong with.1. One of the first rules of fashion is that you must dress according to the type of body you have. Do not imitate fashion blindly because you definitely don’t want to commit what is called as a “fashion disaster.” Even the most gorgeous women in the world may have certain flaws and these women are smart enough to hide these flaws with appropriate dressing. When buying a new dress, always keep the flaws of your body and your body type in mind. The dress you choose should not only hide your flaws, but at the same time, they should bring out the striking and attractive features in you.2. Girls who have broad shoulders or a heavy bust must wear clothing that will not draw attention to these areas of the body. For those girls who have a heavy top should try wearing tops and blouses with horizontal lines, ‘V’ cut neck and small collars. On the other hand, girls with heavy bottoms should avoid wearing tight dresses. Loose paints that come with low waist are suitable. Loose skirts which have a straight pattern will also work.3. One of the other important fashion tips for girls is the choice of bras. Bras are essential inner wears and you should make the effort not to show those straps. If you choose to wear spaghetti tops, make sure you go with a strapless bra because showing your bra straps as part of your look is not fashionable at all.Other quick fashion tips for girls:- Make up is quite popular as they help enhance the overall physical beauty. When wearing make up, keep it as natural as possible. Avoid using colors like purple, blue and green because they only look good on ramps.- Add some hair glitter or glitter body gel as they add a touch of cuteness- Use small hair accessories that sparkle- Tops and blouses with a little bit of frill will work just fine
