Recently Swarovski commissioned several leading designers to create looks incorporating their famous crystals, for the “Runway Rocks Project”. Normally I would say, “O.K., that’s kinda cool, I dig their shiny crystals, whatever.”, but it was the futuristic extravaganza pictured above) that made me take notice. The outfit is titled “It’s a Beautiful Life” and is made by none other than the fabulous Manish Arora. Keeping true to his style the outfit is bold and colorful, with this one being slightly….um….phallic in nature!

Here are a few more noteworthy designs that graced the catwalk…..

Love All Around,
Cara Mia

Corto Moltido
Collado Garcia
Erickson Beamon
Farah Khan

    These really are amazing. The last one makes me think of an old Gloria Swanson costume. Very cool.

    Sistren CaraMia,

    I’ll take the Farah Khan, if for no other reason than to re-use the beads to make more jewelry.

    Thanks for introducing me to Manish Arora. I spent waaaayyy too much time on his website.

    The Jimi Hendrix poster on your side bar used to hang on my living room wall more than a few years ago. I was priviledged to see him once in concert!

    Bless Up,
