You got to know Jael Paris in January, and she wrote a dream birthday gift post for me.
We love McQueen and his Spring 2010 show still has us drooling, but while Jael and I loved his Target collection were less impressed with how the collection was released.
Project Runway finally came back to us this year, but left us wanting more. We've added a tag to all the Project Runway posts so you can keep track each week.
Jael Paris gave Extreme Beauty an excellent book review.
We covered more fashion shows that we can count. This summary post has a recap of all our Spring 2010 shows, and we are especially found of this Fall 2009 Couture round-up. While scanning through all the runway shows, Jael kept an eye out for exciting outfit choices for Oscar nominees to shake up the red carpet. Inspired by runway makeup, I tried to achieve black lips that looked chic rather than goth.
At the suggestion of a reader, Jael Paris started an art series featuring outfit sets based on a particular artist's work. Her favorites are Salvador Dali with Klimt second. Also for our readers, Jael made this Anti-Valentine's Day look and she wrote one of my favorite posts of all time, the search for Maria's dress from West Side Story.
Here are some of our favorites in each of the weekly categories:
