Nuit Blanche

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, founders of the glamorous, classic, and now 25-year-old brand celebrated their quarter-decade with a fashion show in Milan centered around the color of new beginnings and paths untrod, white. The dynamic duo said "I do" with a showing of bridalwear-inspired ensembles. The collection appeared to be inspired by the post-nuptial events rather than the beautiful and romantic exchange of vows most would predict. Corseted knee-length dresses with lace detailing at the hems, virginal pleated dress bottoms and sheer blouses with bustiers,  and flowing raven-black nightgown-style dresses glided across the runway. Perhaps the wedding theme was representative of the devotion Dolce and Gabbana has to bringing the most cutting-edge, uber-stylish, and utterly classic fashion. It's hard to believe that the influence of Dolce and Gabbana has spread now across three generations of consumers and all will agree that the famous D and G spoke of luxury back then just as much as it does now.

What You Can Learn From These Men

Long gone are the days when a man could only have a stylish wardrobe if he was a Wall Street tycoon. Now men have adopted a similar consciousness as their female counterparts when contemplating what they wear. Although men's fashion hasn't changed too much over the 20th century, innovation in the menswear industry is beginning to take place. For men, fashion has crawled out of the cage of function and is roaming free on the plain of form. And now Esquire Magazine is devoting an annual contest that showcases men of exceptional style and taste who are real men working as realtors to college admissions counselors. So if you're a guy who's looking to step up your swagger, then take a look at this year's finalists and what inspires their sartorial status.

"Italian men in general, I'm so intrigued and astonished with their art of dressing. It's so effortless and normal for them to continuously look stylish and elegant, with such a touch of nonchalance." - Angel Ramos, Realtor

"My grandmother is and has been the biggest influence on my style. She worked at a dry cleaner for 35 years. It was her message to me of always having your clothes cleaned and pressed. She made sure my clothes fit properly, too." -Sabir Peele, College Admissions Counselor

Brand of the Week - Marchesa

Few other fashion brands have made quite the splash so quickly than the supremely elegant brand of Marchesa.Created by the ingenious duo Georgina and Keren, it's astounding that for a collection only started in 2004, Marchesa's beauty and attention to detail makes it right at home with collections almost 6 times older. The brand is determined to make every moment an experience, from the fashion shows, the sheer breathtaking designs, and even visiting the website. Taking a look at the founders, Georgina, a Wimbledon School of Art alumni, and Keren, a Brighton Art College grad, you might think that these young upstarts couldn't possibly grasp the eye for aesthetics that glam gods such as Valentino, Oscar de la Renta, and Karl Lagerfeld mastered but just reviewing the Egyptian-goddess inspired Resort 2011 showing  they aced in June makes you think twice. Young Hollywood certainly has no problem taking a shine to the brand with television shows like Gossip Girl using much of their apparel in tapings. But just who is the Marchesa girl? She is the beautiful girl who thrives in contemporary society but understands the unchanging power of the classic; her sensibilities do not lie in the transient fads but she remembers the swans who came before her.

Hail to the Queen

Absolutely no one in the history of American fashion as well as international fashion has possessed quite the influence or power of Anna Wintour. Editor-in-chief of the fashion journalism giant Vogue, Wintour is responsible for being the igniting force behind many presently famous designers today. For a woman inundated daily by all things fashion and glamour, she herself has maintained a consistent and conservative image. With her blond pageboy bob and her ubiquitous dark large sunglasses, she is a constant fixture in all of the fashion shows and fashion weeks that occur around the world. Seen by some as an "ice queen", others respect Anna Wintour's continuous rational, objective, and driven nature which has obviously produced the great fruits of Vogue Magazine we see today. We've got some of the best Anna Wintour quotes lined up today in homage to the woman whose raison d'etre has inspired a generation of fashion enthusiasts and fostered creativity.
