Christian Dior Spring 2009

I can't believe I didn't think of Dior sooner. Kind of perfect, right? The first of many Dior posts.

You can't really see the headbands so well in these photos but I really want one. At $350, I'm going to have to figure out how to Macgyver one.

Can I be reincarnated as Lauren Lane and just wear Jil Sander all the time?

Prada Spring 2007

This reminds me of the episode with the kibbutz in Israel.
I'm thinking Givenchy leather chaps and chambray for tomorrow. If there's a collection that you'd really like to see, just let me know.

Emanuel Ungaro Fall 2009

I'm kind of obsessed with the second look. I think it's perfect cocktail attire (which I don't really do so much. I'm more of a grungy office attire type. Do with that what you will.) I think it's kind of the perfect foil to those satin jewel-tone strapless knee length dresses that everyone and their mother wear. No really, your mother is wearing that. me-oow.

Jen Brill

photos from the fashion spot

I think the first photo with Terry Richardson might be one of my favorites so far. Jen Brill is another girl whose closet I would love to raid. Apparently, the way to my fashion heart is some christopher kane and some YSL heels. I wouldn't have guessed (no, seriously.)

Often the Hos Go For....

Moschino Spring 2009! Bad bad joke. The Nanny was my favorite show when it aired the first time round back in the 90s. I think I was in junior high. I got back into the Nanny around 4 years ago, when I got Lifetime along with Golden Girls and Golden Palace (hellooo, Don Cheadle.) Somehow I stumbled across the fact that they usually dressed Fran in Moschino, and I think some of the it overlaps with when Franco Moschino was at Moschino.

I kind of haven't been keeping up with Moschino but I'm kind of excited to go through their collections now. I love a good harlequin ruffly look and that look is just made for Fran Drescher. Speaking of Moschino and Fran Fine, how amazing is THIS?!

The Costume Institute Edition

Just a quick clarification. I very sincerely love the tv show the Nanny and the clothes that Fran Drescher wore in the series. Honestly, I would not put so much energy into something that was a snarky joke. Positive energy, you guys! You might think it's funny, but you can't deny how fashion forward that show was. To prove my point, my second piece of evidence (the first was Miss Julia Restoin Roitfeld) is the Costume Institute "Model as Muse" gala. Also, note the hair in some of the before photos. THAT IS FRAN FINE HAIR!

Julia Restoin Roitfeld

I just heard today that Julia Restoin Roitfeld is going to be the face of the new Jil Sander perfume called Jil. First off, I think she's STUNNING. I would absolutely love to look like her, and I would also love to raid her closet. Maybe I like her style because it makes me think of Fran Fine? She knows the benefits of a little formfitting dress and how opaque black tights with black shoes goes a long way in elongating a lady's legs. So for those of you who are not familiar with her, I posted her before and after the fran fine transformation. Thoughts?

Marios Schwab Fall 2009

Marios Schwab is one of my all time favorite designers. I'm also really into his grungy, dark circled countenance. (see. you can be a guy that's into fashion that doesn't look like Bruno or Tom Ford, not that I don't love Bruno or Tom Ford but the male fashion stereotypes are getting a bit out of hand.) My favorite collection of his is Spring 2008. I would just wear every single piece and never buy anything else ever again. I saw one his dresses at Barneys and the inside of it was soooooo good. All this really clever rigging to give structure to a draped jersey dress that by nature is structureless. I love him. Anyways, I got an e-mail from Dream Sequins recommending Marios Schwab Fall 2009 and she couldn't be more right. The fur chubbies at the end of the show remind me a lot of my favorite Fran Fine outfit of all time. The episode is a Valentine's day episode where fran rents out a billboard to tell Maxwell that she loves him thinking that he's her secret admirer. Then she finds out it's really a friend of Brighton's and she and Val go up to the billboard to try to cover it up Lucy and Ethel style. oh yeah, spoiler alert. The outfit is white sneakers, white painters jumpsuit, and to top it all off a fluorescent orange chubby fur that looks like she just skinned a muppet. So so good. Fran could wear that to a party at Collette! If I find a video of it, I will post.

Chastity Claire Babcock

I heard that Lauren Lane based her performance of C.C. Babcock on Don Knotts. After hearing that, I have a special place in my heart for C.C. Babcock. (Sidenote, do you remember the episode where Fran is dating Brighton's French tutor and he calls C.C. "Caca"?) As much as I love Fran, I'm probably more of a C.C. than a Fran. Which one are you?

He said he loved me and THEN HE TOOK IT BACK.

Do you remember THE incident where Maxwell told Fran that he loved her on a plane ride from Paris and then HE TOOK IT BACK? If you've seen any episodes from season 4 on, you definitely know what I'm talking about. I like to think of Fran after THE incident as coming back stronger, fiercer, and even more fashion forward. I hate sentiments such as "looking good is the best revenge" (cringe), but I think the perfect collection for the episode when Maxwell takes it back is Louis Vuitton Spring 2009. (he says he loves her on the season finale of season 3 and then takes it back in the opener of season 4.)
