FAB Friday! Couture Chanel

This magnificent piece of artwork by the Chanel Fall 2010 Haute Couture Collection completely stole the show for our Fab Friday post. The basic texture alone makes this dress beautiful but the key elements is what makes it Fabulous!

Now I think it is safe to say that many of us wouldn’t consider wearing this on a basic weekday. With that being said, all of these key elements can be used separately as your daily accessory. So, let’s break this Fabulous piece down to reality.

As shown, the stacked imperial beading around the shoulder and neckline continue around the upper part of the back. This is a gorgeous feature that can transform any average top or blouse pop with attention. Forget those oversized earrings or long necklace for your big night out. Try an eye-drawing beaded or sequence neckline like this one and own it!

Let’s move on to the stunning pearl drapes. Many times us women admire these dresses that are a bit oversized or have a little extra fabric in the right spot for our areas of concern. This is the perfectly elegant alternative without adding any extra fabric creating that ‘wing’ look. Yes, it would be difficult to replicate this image however, try applying this drape effect overtop of a beautiful textured blouse. This extracts any negative attention from our more sensitive area, the waist line. As you can see, the texture of the dress along with the draping creates a complimentary combination.

Lastly, my favorite piece… the ever-so-stunning bracelet. This piece is so versatile. You could wear it as shown or with your favorite pair of jeans and a white tee with heels or flats. The plethora of individualized wraps and stones are breathtaking. This is the show-stopper in my opinion as we are close to speechless. Amazing!

xxo!
