Spring 2014 ready-to-wear Dolce and Gabbana
The last few years I'm getting more and more into Dolce and Gabbana. I'm attracted by their feminine sensuality. Their ability to make a woman sexy without making it vulgar, while still getting a very glamorous result. Don't get me wrong, I also love rather minimalistic silhouettes, but sometimes a good dose of glamorous gets me drooling.
I'll show you why, by my favourites of their latest collections, starting backwards chronological with the Spring 2014 collection.
This collection was very enchanting. A very playful and light way to view spring. Despite the chunky added flowers, the collection still looks flowy and light. With a magical atmosphere, in which the models are replaced by nymphs. Reminder for springtime: Try on some lilac eyeshadow, combined with tons of highliter and a sweet pink blush.
The collection contains three recurring themes. The first one I just described, an ancient Greece/Rome inspired part and one with a lot gold and embellishment.
And I know the pictures aren't that large (you can always click on them to enlarge), but a tip for viewing a collection of Dolce & Gabbana is to pay attention to the details. Check how amazing they are!

Fall 2013 ready-to-wear Dolce and Gabbana
This collection of Dolce & Gabbana must be my favourite ever! Is there anything not to love about it? It contains amazing make up, history, gemstones, shoes and last but not least, clothes!
Fall 2013, it ain't gonna be more accurate! This season's collection has a large dose of glamour, with some royal influences. Or rather a lot royal influences. It starts with highlighting one of the greatest ancient cultures, that once had an important role in Italy: the Byzantine empire. On the clothing we see a literal translation of the famous Byzantic mosaics, guided by a numerous gemstones. Add a gold background colour, some majestic dresses and you become an instant godess.
Secondly there is a way more modest part, containing mainly greys and black. The silhouettes and fabric are in the middle of attention here. I think it is about the Italian woman, showing her typical class and style.
In the end we go back to the Byzantic glamour, but one a more femme fatale way. The patterns and gems remain, but all translated in red dresses this time. Together with crowns and fierce make up, they're creating true queens.
Coming to the make up, this is also a big reason why I love this collection so much! The models have dark red lips, a trend where I've completely fallen for since last year. Finishing of with a simple eyeliner, a healthy sleek dark haircut and saying goodbye to bushy brows, this makes a perfect look.
Oh and just one thing, look a those shoes. They've got caged heels, surrounded by roses. CAGED HEELS SURROUNDED BY ROSES!
