Paula Fabulous In Louis Verdad & Dior


This spring we saw some of fashion’s biggest, boldest and loudest trends on the catwalk. With electric colour, graphic prints, maxi lengths and bright white were some of the key looks to emerge this season. One of the biggest trends we saw was the Colour Block from Gucci. Paula stepped out on stage in a mix of hot pink, red and cobalt blue from designer Louis Verdad for a maximum glamorous impact with blue patent pumps from Christian Dior that made viewers eyes pop.  Los Angeles designer Louis Verdad returned to the fashion scene for the first time this year in two years. Known for sexy tailoring which earned him a reputation with the likes of other celebs most notably Madonna and Cate Blanchett when he first burst on the fashion scene nearly a decade ago. His spring/summer 2012 collection that Paula selected to wear was a mix of everything I love about fashion – glamour, sophistication, bold, colour and sexy shapes. This look is a loud and proud colour combination for Paula and makes for a dynamic and confident look on the final show. This is a look that gained a mixed reaction from fans and viewers some loving and recognizing the fashion forward bold look while others were surprised at her choice and thought the outfit was slightly overkill and’ try hard’. I love the hot pink silk top against Paula’s skin tone and hair colour and love the combo of red and pink together with statement jewelled earrings which is hot. I thought she looked amazing as she stepped out on stage and loved that she was trying something new and bang on trend. I’m not mad on the front slit on the skirt with the aqua fabric and matching Dior shoes, I would have stuck with red but that’s a small detail and completely subjective. Overall I prefer the black mesh dress on Paula but adore Louis Verdad as a massive talent and can see why Paula wore this outfit on the final rather than the black. What do you think? Do you love or hate the colour block trend on Paula?

  1. I love it , Paula look gallant and beautiful in these colors maybe the pockets decoration is too much.

  2. Thanks for your comment Rita! Hope you like the blog x

  3. It took me a while to get used to that look – because it is certainly something different! – but i have totally come to appreciate it! It makes a statement and is, as you already said, “loud and proud”. And what better night to wear something like that than the finale? I would have prefered the golden mini dress by nanaz couture though.

  4. I like this dress. It’s bold and bright and Paula looks fab in it. I agree about wearing different color shoes though. But I’m very impressed with this look. Not many people could carry this off, but Paula manages to not only look gorgeous in anything she wears but also makes the outfit look gorgeous ion her. :)

  5. I love your blog! when are you gonna put some new looks???
