Sarah Jessica Parker made a appearance at her new movie for “I Don’t Know How She Does It,” in a floor-length red Giambattista Valli Red strapless dress with a matching cape on Sunda in Moscow, Russia.

The dress was super dramatic and had a Little Red Riding Hood look which she paired with Fred Leighton Jewels and Large Gold Hoop earrings and a gold necklace.

Behind the designs…get to know Halston

Halston 1932-90. Designer born Roy Halson Frowick in Des Moines, Iowa, USA. Halston attended the University of Indiana and the Chicago Institute. In 1953 he opened a millinery salon in a Chicago hotel where he had clients such as Gloria Swanson and Deborah Kerr. In 1958 he joined a company in New York called Lilly Dache. Moving on up he next was employed at a millinery salon of Bergdorf Goodman’s New York department store. Halston designed many hats for Jacqueline Kennedy (Onassis), including a beige felt pillbox that was widely copied. In 1966 he began designing ready-to-wear garments, leaving Bergdorf Goodman to open his own business. Most importantly during the late 1960’s and 1970’s Halston established a reputation as a designer of knitwear, sweaters and wide-legged jersey trousers, turtlenecks, long slinky halter neck dresses , cashmere dresses for day and evening, sweater sets and boxy, square jackets and coats. Halston was an amazing designer who left a legacy and a brand name that is now recognizable around the world.

Tribute to a great…Alexander McQueen

I think this is really cool and well deserved. The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York is going to pay tribute to the late fashion designer Alexander McQueen with a 2011 exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume institute. The exhibition will feature the best of McQueen’s Iconic cult like dresses. The exhibit will run from May 4th-July 30th. If your in New York you should definitely see it. McQueen was a one of a kind genius who will be missed from the fashion world.
