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.

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.

Grammys 2018: SZA in Atelier Versace

Current Cravings

One of my favorite red carpet looks from this year’s Grammys was SZA in Atelier Versace. SZA definitely has a signature style, and I love that she looked like a glammed up version of herself instead of someone who received a complete red carpet style overhaul.

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.

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.

Grammys 2017: Beyoncé in Peter Dundas 

Current Cravings

Grammys 2017 Beyoncé - Sublime Cravings“Your mother is a woman. And women like her can not be contained”

-Excerpt of Warsaw Shire’s poetry, which was used in Beyoncé’s Lemonade

That’s what I aspire to. I aspire to be a woman who can not be contained. I want to be a  woman that constantly strives to know herself, and moves through the world in a way that is true to how she defines herself.

I was so inspired by Beyoncé’s Grammys performance. Anytime I watch her perform, I’m in awe of her talent and all the hard work she puts into her craft. This particular performance not only showcased her talent, but was also a celebration of who she is right now in this season of her life. She did not try to minimize or draw attention away from her pregnant belly. It was not a performance by a talented performer who just happened to be pregnant. Instead this was a performance that reveled in the magic and power of a woman in the midst of her pregnancy. This beautiful gown, designed by Peter Dundas, didn’t serve to hide her pregnant belly. Instead it highlighted it. It was a celebration of the female form, without objectification. It was beautiful, strong, and vulnerable. Uncontained.

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.
