let's be fashion foward and make a broad statement.
"together the shoulders and slinky skirt looked like a suit. a strong suit. a fortiesish suit, not an eightisish suit. i ferreted out my black patent Alaia platforms. this really did look OK. then i chickened out. i shed the shoulders and fled to report on the Armani Prive show. the piquant regret i experienced on leaving the Margiela on the bed might be more understood by what happened next. a seat opposite stayed empty until the last dramatic moment before the lights went down. then Cate Blanchett walked along and sat in it. and what was she wearing? a black, wide-shouldered, slinky-skirted fortiesish suit, custom-made for her by Mr. Armani. damn, damn, damn."-shrug it on by Sarah Mower APR07 Vogue-
i love perfectly tailored, structured clothing and when i spotted the broad shoulder look at the Balenciaga spring07 show, i was very excited that such a trend had been reintroduced. i love its silhouette and its ability to change one's look entirely. it gives a look so much more power and impact, you're bound to stand out from the rest of the crowd and there's no doubt you'll look cool, sexy and fabulous doing it. this just might be my favorite new trend.
