Dior Haute Couture Fall 2018 - Sublime Cravings Illustration

I’m enamored with the direction that Maria Grazia Chiuri has taken Dior since she took the helm at the fashion house. This latest collection featured an array of ethereal chiffon and Chantilly lace dresses in nude and blush tones. Soft, beautiful and refined, the Dior Haute Couture Fall 2018 dress in this illustration features sunray pleated chiffon in the palest shade of pink. Dainty drop earrings embellished with colorful but delicate animal figurines lend a whimsical touch to the whole look.

Strong, bold and sexy. Jennifer Lopez was nothing short of divine in this Balmain dress, which was custom made to fit the “Heavenly Bodies” theme of this year’s Met Gala. The dress was embroidered with jewels and featured an ostrich feather train and a thigh high slit.

Zendaya in Giambattista Valli Couture is easily my favorite red carpet look from this year’s Oscars. This sumptuous one-shoulder dress features layers of draped chocolate brown chiffon. A shimmery brown smokey eye and elegant top knot complete the look. The overall effect is elegant and regal.

Runway Look: Giambattista Valli Couture Fall 2017

Current Cravings

At the Giambattista Valli Couture Fall 2017 show it was all about ruby lips and fancy frocks. There were so many divine dresses in this collection, but I decided to focus on 2 dresses for this illustration. I started with this lovely gown in a delicate shade of pink, with a bodice embellished with dainty bows and flower petals. The second runway look in this illustration features a deep wine-colored draped silk chiffon floor-length gown accessorized with vintage jewelry. I’m sure we’ll be seeing several dresses from this collection on the red carpet in the months to come.

Runway Look: Elie Saab Couture Spring 2017

Current Cravings

I love these two runway looks from Elie Saab’s Spring 2017 Couture collection because they are a modern take on retro ladylike glam. Both dresses feature a figure flattering silhouette rendered in sumptuous fabric and adorned with gold and jewel encrusted embellishments. To me, these dresses are every bit as sexy as body conscious designs.

Oscars 2017: Hailee Steinfeld in Ralph and Russo

Current Cravings

Stunning from head to toe, Hailee Steinfeld wore one of my favorite looks from the Oscars red carpet. I’m certain that the reason I like her overall look is because I am enamored by looks that epitomize an ethereal and edgy aesthetic. Taken alone, this Ralph and Russo dress, which features folds of translucent fabric covered in hand painted flowers, is gorgeous. I love that her styling team opted to leave the dress sheer, rather than line it. The sheerness keeps the dress from being too saccharine, in my opinion. In addition to the sheerness of the dress, a smoky eye and an almost sculptural updo gives the overall look a bit more edge. The result is an ethereal vibe that doesn’t risk resembling a fairy princess costume. Nothing short of styling alchemy.

Runway Look: Giambattista Valli Couture Spring 2017

Current Cravings

Giambattista Valli’s couture shows usually end with a series of voluminous and decadent tiered tulle gowns, and his Spring 2017 Couture show was no exception. And because I’m a dessert first, then dinner type of person, I couldn’t wait to see the ball gown confections that comprise the finale of the runway show. Don’t get me wrong, the show was filled with lovely pieces that I definitely want to illustrate, but I had to draw this exquisite tulle ball gown first.

Golden Globes 2017: Emma Stone in Valentino

Current Cravings

There were so many divine looks on the Golden Globes red carpet this year, so I had to draw another one (you can see the first one, featuring Lily Collins, here). Emma Stone looked amazing in this Valentino pale pink gown adorned with stars.

Below is my first attempt at creating an animated piece. I’ve been wanting to play with animation, and the celestial vibe of this gown inspired me to give it a try.
