Victoria Beckham shows off her new haircut at Fashion Week
She's launced a limited edition (400 pieces/10 styles) dress collection! Yum. Something about these--and every Black Halo* dress, and every sheath for sale nowadays--just smacks of Roland Mouret! I know that she is a fan, as am I--except I cannot yet justify a RM purchase--(I love clothes in general, but covet Roland Mouret's galaxy dress like nothing else. I think if I were given the choice of picking one item of clothing to be worn forever, I would pick this dress.) and wears Roland's dresses frequently...but sheesh. This is definitely a step up from DVB Jeans though!
Interestingly enough, Roland Mouret was recently interviewed by the very new Wall Street Journal magazine (yes, they're following in the foot steps of the Financial Times and New York Times--now I can get in a bit of fashion reading while fulfilling my professional reading requirement!) and launched a thinly veiled attack on those who dumb down fashion by making cheaper version of his, and every major designer's, high-end wares. He couldn't have been referring to Vix becuase her dresses are almost as expensive as his, starting at £650--that's a little more than $1,000 USD. Check out the pieces from Victoria Beckham's collection here.

* I had an old store credit that I had to use today, so I gave in and went for a Roland Mouret knockoff (one would think that anything that costs in excess of $300.00 would not be considered knockoff, but I digress)! This will have to tide me over until I start ballin'.
