My top 5:

1. JOHN GALLIANO :luv: - This man is a genius. No one will come close to his designs for Dior. His haute couture pieces are art, plain and simple. Love how over-the-top even his RTW designs are. He was perfect for Dior.



2. Alexander McQueen (RIP) - Another fashion genius. Had so much potential. His attention to detail in his designs is amazing.



3. Elie Saab - Can create beautiful gowns that look elegant and not tacky at all. :luv:



4. Jason Wu - One of the most promising young fashion designers IMO :) Definitely deserving of the Future of Fashion award.



5. Domenico Dolce + Stefano Gabbana - Love the sexy Italian vibe their clothes have.

Karlie Kloss fan? Me too.

And my favourite designer is Elie Saab, he's not trendy or gimmicky, he just produces absolutely beautiful clothes. His couture collections are some of the most exquisite things I have ever seen, I would love to have one of his dresses for my own someday.

I like Alber Elbaz for Lanvin, perfectly structured clothing and clever draping. I like the colour palettes he uses, they are subdued yet vibrant at the same time. Elbaz makes his women look fierce and powerful and he has a great sense of humour too.

I like what Dolce and Gabbana have been doing with their Sicilian lace look for the last couple of seasons. Many say its getting old now but I still love it.

A few Chanel pieces ( 2.55, glasses, necklace) and I'm a happy bunny, Alexander Wang does some awesome stuff with leather pieces too . Gotta agree with Dolce and Gabbana's use of sicilian lace . Classy and edgy are great combinations :)

I absolutely adore Chloe. I think when I reach my UGW my present to myself is going to be a pair of Chloe sunglasses and a Chloe bag. Expensive sunglasses and purses only look chic on thin women, otherwise they just look tacky.

Will I ever be able to afford one of his lovely hot cotours? I think not :(

I have many favorites, but here are ten because I can't cram all my favorites in a 5 list (NOT in order):
1. Coco Chanel
Class, Style, Elegance. From the little black dresses to the quilted handbags to the pearl necklaces to the adorable buttons. Everything she did was elegance itself.

2. Christian Dior
I dream of owning vintage Dior so much... The only Dior I own is my signature scent Miss Dior Chérie haha. Anyway, I love his elegant and feminine gowns...

3. Hubert de Givenchy
Who can forget his glorious designs for the lovely waif-ish and delicate Audrey Hepburn?

4. Alber Elbaz for Lanvin
I love those short, fun and colorful yet tasteful dresses. And I love even more when he danced to Pitbull next to Karen and Raquel!

5. Jasun Wu
Modern but ladylike, his clothes are very gamine and charming.

6. Burberry
Preppy, classic, invented the trench coat and I love the nerdy-chic Burberry skirt. It is so... nerdy yet fashionable at the same time. And when I mean Burberry, I mean both Christopher Bailey AND Thomas Burberry.

7. Stacey Bendet (Alice + Olivia)
Girly, modern, tasteful and classy. A perfect mixture.

8. Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel
I adore everything about him. His designs, his outspoken personality, his courage to express himself and his CAT!

9. Kate Spade
Fun and color come in a ladylike package.

10. Elie Saab
The look is a fantasy. It is ethereal. It is something the Queen of Fairies would wear. It is out of this world!

Oh drat. Didn't know I would have more. I'll add some more later!

11. Vera Wang
I swear, my wedding dress will be Vera Wang, yes or yes!

12. Oscar de la Renta
He dressed Jackie O. He is amazing.

13. Valentino
Red, red and more red!

14. Nina Ricci
Very whimsical and, well, cute!

15. Carolina Herrera
The woman herself is so ladylike and carries herself with such grace... She's an inspiration! And you can see it on the runway!

Have I bored you already??? hahaha too bad. Here I'll mention some more:
Diane von Furstenberg, Salvatore Ferragamo, Miuccia Prada, Chloé, Nanette Lepore Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs, Max Azria, Donna Karan, Phillip Lim, Mulberry, Juicy Couture (can be tacky, but the handbags are lovely), Christian Louboutin and Salvatore Ferragamo! And so many more!!!

Who are your favorite designers? For me, I love Michael Kors. I don't know why. Ever since I was little and watched Project Runway with my mum and he was a judge, I loved him. He makes the most beautiful bags and shoes!;)
