Velvet Vixen

84th Annual Academy Awards, Arrivals, Los Angeles, America - 26 Feb 2012
We all remember Angie’s Right leg sexy snap captured by every magazine, blog, fashion sites, news sites, Newspapers all across the word. It created such a flutter that media and the cyber world went crazy with  twitter handles & FB Pages being created. Why wouldn’t it be, she was looking drop dead gorgeous and we were captivated with the look for days to come. Now, if only we could get past that pose and the leg we would have noticed the fabric of the gown – Yes, it was Velvet.  It was probably  the sign of what’s gonna be big in the coming season. Not just the Leg silly… but the fabric as well.

Velvet like Leather is the fabric for the season. Almost every designer showcased this fabric on the Runway.

I have always associated Velvet with Emperors Gowns and Regals embellished with Jewels etc so its only befitting to see the Royalty wearing it as a latest trend.
I must say looking at models strutting down the runway wearing this fabric for all the major fashion houses surely makes me wanna try Velvet  at least once.

Velvet is a tricky fabric and can be slightly overwhelming unless you are Angelina Jolie :)) but If you still wish to try it out, mix it with some other fabric and try it on like Leighton Meester.

Our Indian designers use Velvet a lot in tandem with other fabrics & they use it very well.  It could be in Blouses, or as borders or even strips mixed with other fabric. It works really well with the look and makes the ensemble very rich and elegant like Deepika & Priyanka are wearing Velvet blouses
