Classic Fran, in 3 Parts

Dior Pre-Fall 2009 from style.com

Every once in a while you happen upon a collection that is so straight forward Nanny that you almost don't even want to post it. I'm starting to realize that's a big mistake. This collection hits on all three nanny classics, the loud red skirt/suit, leopard print, and the evening gown. Coincidentally, the shots are taken on a staircase which one can imagine that that was the next landing in the Sheffield home before she takes her descent into the living room.

Moschino Cheap and Chic Spring 2010

Moschino Cheap and Chic Spring 2010 from style.com

Hi, welcome to Should Be On the Nanny. First rule of Should Be on the Nanny is Moschino is god. It is definitely getting to the point where I can't separate the two anymore. I think this collection is really well done. This is a good, fun, bright spring/summer collection. Moschino does fun/happy clothes better than anyone else. I can already think of a few lady bloggers who are going to go cray cray over this collection (and especially the shoes.) Is it just me? I don't know. I really like it!

A couple nights ago I got to meet some of my favorite internet ladies and (gentlemen). Some of them even got to be there in person for this Marc does Comme show. I really like this collection! My favorite since the mirrored hat collection (it's in a previous post). Anyways, this post is for you guys! Hope to see you all soon.

fave models....

So as I'm waiting for more Spring Summer 2010 images to pop up and hoping that styles, necklines, and skin tones will match Fran's, I figured I'd do another "behind Should be on the Nanny" post. Sometimes we all like to be a little self-indulgent.
First, I pick a collection that I would like to see Fran or CC wear. Secondly, I try to see if skin tones will match and if not I look for high necklines so that you don't see the difference as much. Lastly, there are certain models that just look really good for Fran or for CC. For Fran, Amanda Laine does really well. If I see she's in the collection, i'll usually go with her look. Imagine my panic when people started inquiring about her whereabouts and wondering if she had retired already. Because CC has short hair it's sometimes hard to photoshop images with the girls with mermaid hair. Asia Bugajska (my new favorite model and clearly Encens's as well. There's like some 30 page editorial in most recent issue just of her) is a good fit for CC. Thanks ladies!

Isabel Marant Fall 2009

Isabel Marant Fall 2009 from style.com

I guess I'm getting old but I'm getting really tired of clothes that people can't wear. Don't get me wrong, about two years ago I was still all about the difficult wear. If I ever saw clothes that weren't an assualt on the eye, I'd be like, "ugh, that's soooooo pedestrian." (thanks SAT prep.) Now, I actually recognize how hard it is to make pieces that people will want to wear in their daily lives. I guess I just stopped being a snob and started to recognize the importance and the difficulty of the everyday. That being said, I think Isabel Marant, does a really good job of making wearable pieces that also look luxe without trying too hard. Also, Emanuelle Alt does a great job of styling. (I prefer the work she does with Isabel Marant to what she does with Balmain.) ALSO, for this show she used one of my favorite songs of all time. Don't be scared by the Hitler stash.

I got the nicest comment from Nadia Hearts Music (I do too!!!) yesterday. "Fashion and the Nanny in one little package" is exactly what I'm going for. Thanks Nadia!
