"WOW" was the first word that came to mind when I first perused the shots of the Fall/Winter 2011 Collection by Jason Wu! It was love at first sight...
In order for you guys to get a better idea as to what captivated me the most I will go through each outfit that I liked and explain why I loved it so much!
First stop is...the Lustrous Red Ball Gown
[Model: Jourdan Dunn]
This lovely gown equals "perfect beauty". I love that it's strapless because I'm a sucker for those dresses. In addition the simple gold details at the bust and waist give this dress elegance without going really extravagant! The fabric is also lovely I love that it flows so that when you walk across a room you would catch the attention of those surrounding you instantly. And lets not forget the stunning red color. It pops and gives so much more attention to this dress. I must say the dress really enchanted me! If only I could have a dress like this for Prom - I would definitely feel like a Prom Queen if I did. I love you Jason Wu!!! <3
Followed by the look I call...Androgyny Chic
As many of you guys know I'm also a fan of androgyny women's wear. This look was simple, chic and full of that sexy man-appeal. Hahahaha that might have sounded weird but some of you understand what I mean - Its like in the movies when they show a woman wearing her boyfriend shirt around the house, thats the type of sexiness I'm referring to. I love the details on the sides of the sweater and the trousers have that timeless design that never goes out of style so it completes the whole look perfectly. I couldn't see the bag very well but it looked gorgeous too.
Up next is the look that shouted chicness! I call it...James Bond Female
Out of all of the androgynous looks in the Jason Wu Fall/Winter 2011 collection this one was my ultimate favorite. I immediately thought of James Bond when I saw this look. Usually - for those who know JB - one associates elegance, mystery and sexiness when one hears the name James Bond. And that was exactly what this look said to me when I first saw it. Jason amazes me every time; he can make a woman look so good in manly and feminine pieces and that its so amazing! I love the look from head to toe. One again its so simple yet so chic. I love the detail in the jacket because although the cut is typical of a blazer its that detail in the front that adds that feminineness to the outfit. And the shirt with the bow is perfect so I would 't see a problem in wearing it without the jacket at all.
Back to feminine...Simple White Dress
This dress was another example of simple elegance in Jason Wu's collection. I love the design because once again its SIMPLE and the "dead Winter flowers" print on it adds to the elegance in it. I really like the bottom of the dress because I'm also a sucker for bell bottom dresses and this one is pretty so its great.
And the last three that caught my attention I call them...The Three Timeless Gowns
Once again the flow of these three dresses I loved. And yes the second one is not actually a dress but a top and a long "flowy" skirt. I loved all three of the for their gold and lace details. Jason Wu you deserve five stars for this lovely Fall and Winter collection! You're truly amazing and I would love to wear one of your gowns someday. Best of luck for Jason Wu!!

P.S: Did you wonder who the model on the Red Gown is? Well its Jourdan Dunn! The British sensation supermodel of the moment. I'll feature her some other time but if you want to see her latest project go visit the Burberry website (www.burberry.com) and see her in the Fall/Winter 2011 ads. I guarantee that you will love it! Also is it me or did Jason's collection allude to Black Swan as well? Loved it!
Until next time...
