Feather Fashion From The 2019 Venice Film Festival

We really love it when our movie stars and models show up wearing feathers.

So of course I was happy to see this article from “The Hollywood Reporter”.

Is it not obvious to everyone that if you are going to call an article anything with the words “best looks” you are sure to see at least a few pictures of feathers. Ok ok I know I am being just a little bit biased. 

Any ways lets just jump right into it and see who was wearing what feathers to the show, or I mean the festival. 

Peneope Cruz dazzled the crowd wearing a weight tierer Ralph and Russo gown with a slightly feather decorated torso.         

The supermodel Iman really took the feathers to the extreme by showing up on the red carpet in a head to toe Valentino haute couture feather gown. 

French actress Catherine Deveuve really impressed me with her fiery red vest with a feathery hem, by Jean Paul. 

I always get this feeling that the French just do fashion right.  

Martha Hunt is the last on our list of feather fashion stars for today. Martha wore this sizzling hot gown and I just must quote the article from the website here.

“Martha Hunt
The model (who also got the feather trend memo) donned a strapless, custom Alberta Ferretti gown with a bodice decked out in plumage and a sheer black skirt with a train that trailed regally behind her at the La Vérité (The Truth) screening.”

Prabal Gurung Feather Fashion

Whenever I come across a new designer I check the blog to make sure that I have not already written about them and forgotten. For the most part if they seem new to me I can't find them even mentioned previously, but that was not the case with Prabal Gurung. 

I had mentioned them in two posts in the past, one in 2013 and another in 2014, but I guess that's more than five years ago so I can forgive myself for not remembering. 

So what I am going to do is show five feather designs by Prabal Gurung, one for every year since I last wrote about them. 

Here we have our first dress from their Spring 2015 Ready-To-Wear collection. 

Next up for our 2016 Prabal Gurung design, we fond Cate Blanchett in one of their feather  skirts.

For 2017 they brought us this simple yet stunning off the shoulder, feather decorated sweater.

Last but not least in 2018 they created this magical silver dress with feather trim.

Feathers And Positivity - New York Fashion Week

For those of us who live in the parts of the world that change colors in the fall, the stunning show of nature is about to begin. 

I grew up in Miami and didn't see this wonder until we happened to be in New York visiting family one year during the fall. The fun of diving into huge piles of leaves was a true novelty for me. 

While some of us might be loathing the coming of winter, but the New York Fashion Week is all about Springtime joy, positivity and of course feathers.

I was personally touched by Marc Jacobs words “This show, like that show, is a celebration of life, joy, equality, individuality, optimism, happiness, indulgence, dreams, and a future unwritten as we continue to learn from the history of fashion,”.

Some people love the winter, the cold and the snow. While others can not wait for the winter to end. 

So for those of you who hate the winter, just know that the New York Fashion Week is already talking Spring. 

Now for the line up of which designers put feathers out on the catwalk for their Spring 2020 styles.

 Marc Jacobs brought out a real head to toe feather design with the colors of spring flowers.

Prabal Gurung displayed these two elegant feather dresses, they make me think of a cocktail party, or maybe that is just because I would like a cocktail. 

This silky silver beauty with a feathered upper is the creation of Jason Wu.

Ralph Lauren amazed us by showing a tight black dress with feather trim neckline that flowed with their business suits. 

Hope I didn't miss anything. Today is the last day of the New York Fashion Week, so maybe we'll see more.
