ILLUSTRATION: The Dutchess of Sussex

Watched the most awaited event of 2018 and I was in awe! 

This was actually my first time watching a royal wedding and I was not disappointed; it was grand, elegant, luxurious and so much more! The most anticipated aspect of the wedding was obviously the dress and upon revelation, I really liked it. The dress itself was a creation of Clare Waight Keller (a brit herself), who's currently the fashion director of Givenchy. The gown, although simple, suited the now Dutchess to a tee. It was a plain off-the shoulder floor-length gown, minimal, elegant and very modest.

Then came the second dress that stunned, and there was no two ways about it. This gown came from wedding guest and British designer Stella McCartney and was a sleeveless halterneck that flared from the knee downwards. Do you guys have a preference between the two? What did you guys think of the dresses?
Above is my illustration of the Dutchess, I just could not help but. I adored the makeup, veil, jewellery and dresses so I had to do my version. As all of my recent illustrations, this one was a mixture of pencil and digital. It was one of the most challenging so far as it was one of the cleanest, most simplistic look I have ever tried to replicate.

I found a fantastic article on GoodHousekeeping on 10 facts about the wedding outfit. I didn't want to pinch them so give it a click and a read, some'll definitely surprise you.

FASHION IN FOCUS: Versace Tribute

Since I had been looking at Versace from the recent Met Gala, I came across the Tribute collection from the brand. As you can see this consists on boldly silk-printed gold and and black pieces, heavy gold hardware in the form of jewellery or fastening and jet-black smooth leather. 

Within the Tribute collection, the brand has brought out collections amongst; one being Tresor De La Mer. This is described as Stars, shells and Medusa's - the creatures of the depths of the Mediterranean sea: Gianni Versace's inspiration. This gorgeous collection features some unique pieces, such as a starfish shaped crystal ring in gold and a cropped stark-white denim jacket fully printed with treasures from under the sea...in gold. 

The Medusa Madness collection is the one featured below. *This regal collection is said to be bound by the Medusa - with gold or leather, the medusa curse is forever. With a simple three-colour palette, the collection is anything but simple. I obviously adore this collection, hence the feature, but I want to know, what do you think of it?

*(please don't quote me on this, as far as I am aware all the images below are from this collection. Apologies if I'm wrong but please PLEASE leave me a comment giving me a good telling off and feel free to correct me!)

FASHION IN FOCUS: Met Gala 2018 x Versace

Do we even need to mention the Met Gala just gone? Because personally I feel like you cannot miss it, even if you're trying to. I do not fall under that category as one of the first things I did on Tuesday morning (prior to opening both eyelids) was to check my phone for the Met Gala pictures. My main focus...the gowns. 

 This years's theme was aptly named 'Fashion and the Catholic Imagination' and designers showcased their finest work among decadent gold jewellery, crosses and crucifixes and over-the-top headpieces. This year Versace captured my attention more than anyone other designers and these are the reasons why...









Above feature some of my favourite looks from the brand, however there was PLENTY to choose from. Do you guys have any favourites from the Met Gala this year? Let me know and comment down below!
