The Latest Buzz

The Bee’s Knees

Nicole – The Queen Bee

Everyone’s been a-buzz this week with red carpet fashion reviews and we wouldn’t be The Buzz without mentioning the gorgeous custom Alexander McQueen dress Nicole Kidman wore at the Golden Globes.  The ultra-fitted, corseted black gown had a more demure neckline decorated with a bevy of golden bees and was much more wearable then most of the outfits that Sarah Burton presented on the runway last fall.

Spring Loveliness

Influenced by McQueen’s love of feminine silhouettes, romantic crinolines and accessories that are like pieces of art, Sarah’s spring 2013 collection is definitely the bee’s knees.  Mesh headpieces like beekeepers’ hats, honeycomb patterned jackets, bee studded cuffs and chokers were inspired by all that is apiary.

Corset and Crinoline

Crazy Clutch

The pregnant designer (due any day now!) doesn’t really know where this all started but it may be because that her studio is filled with female worker bees.  In any event, the collection is beautiful and worth all the buzz it’s getting!

    Love the bevy of bees on the black dress! And the clutch. But have to say the last photo titled golden honey bees is a bit frightening!

    I had not looked closely at Nicole’s dress at the GGs. I actually like how she looks there more than the Oscars! Love how you find all these bees!

    Hope your day is buzzing along!
