Bring a little sparkle into the board room with small elements like a metallic clutch from Splash.
The bell sleeves balances the look of this plunging neckline top from MANGO. It does not hurt that the ruching at the waist emphasises the curves.
Dove Gray pencil skirt is very S/S 10 and the cut is a Ford Classic ( i just need a thigh high slit)
There is nothing like a snakeskin black ALDO pumps with thin steel heel to complete the minx look! hehehehe.

I dont have enough superlatives to define these two evening gowns! Again deep decolletes.

See the penetrating gazes of these models?!!! PAT McGrath, I HEART YOU!!!!

Paired the halter top with a White Pantsuit from New Look

Snake Skin Gladiators and a Cream Clutch from Splash

Sequined beige halter top was done by a local tailor in Manila back in 2003.

My take on plunging necklines. I call this my Bianca Jagger moment. :)

Plunging neclines, sequins and clean silhoutte.

A tight and classic LBD from Zara can go from Day to Night.

Wear it with a velvet coat from The Gap for a day in the office.

Open toed stilletos from ALDO always sexifies any outfit ( manicured toe nails are a MUST! )

Black and Gold Clutch from MANGO to carry a your must haves.

The tightest pencil skirts paired with cinched waisted coats and vertigo inducing heels are Tom Ford Classics

Smokey Bronze and Gold Eyes, Pale Glossy Lips and Luminescent Skin is a Gucci Girl Trademark done by none other than Pat McGrath.

Deep, side parted low chignon sprayed with gold by Hair Guru, Orlando Pita

What can better than a rose petal covered runway to usher in the last collection of perhaps one of the most influential designers of all time? Perhaps, the sight of 1,500 people cheering or the emotional people backstage who made the show possible, the teary models who had nothing but words of appreciation for Tom Ford.

Looking at the models clothed in the last collection of Tom Ford for Gucci was like walking down memory lane. 10 years of the best looks from Gucci. The silhoutte was as usual, hourglass complmented by structured coats in rich jewel toned velvets. Skinny pencils with vavavooooom slits paired with upturned neck coats and corset belts, plunging décolletés, and satin panels. These I guess are Ford Classics.

Among all the looks that graced the shows, according to Orlando Pita (Hair Stylist) Tom Ford chose this deep parted low chignon for the show and a smokey bronze and gold eye was created by Pat McGrath. This according to Tom Ford represented what a Gucci Girl is all about.

Here are some of my picks from the last collection and my interpretation of the looks.
