Lacroix, Sweetie....Lacroix!

We're feeling all nostalgic today as the world of Couture has gone on but has left one of the greats in the dust.
Like Eddy & Patsy, we're crying into our glasses of wine or whatever we can get our hands on.  :(

This time last year, Christian Lacroix showed his very last Spring Couture line. 
We're all sad but let's look back at that Spring 2009 Couture show....maybe a trip down memory lane will help us forgive the fashion world.  Sigh.

Christian Lacroix
Spring 2009 Couture
Location: The Pompidou Centre, Paris

Most of these trends are just starting to get hot for Spring 2010. Couture is always the leader.

Bows, bows and more bows.....

Polka Dots......

Stripes/Nautical look...

He'll be missed.  However, in the time that we're living in, how much is Couture really needed?
Sure, it's wonderful to sit and watch the shows and critique each and every thread but designers don't get paid for that.  They get paid by selling their creations.
The big question in the Couture world is: Who's buying?

GQ's Most Stylish Men In The World, 2010--We Disagree

Well, looks like Johnny Depp is taking this title home.
In the February issue of GQ magazine, they are announcing the most stylish man in the world for 2010 and his name is Johnny Depp.

Here’s the list of guys that Johnny beat out:

Robert Pattinson   (whatever)
Andre Benjamin    (He's not on our list but maybe should be?)
Russell Brand        (gross)
Tom Brady            (Who?)
Ryan Gosling         (He's on our list, too! <3 )
Paul Simonon        (Some old rocker dude-we don't care)
L.A Reid               (A $ suit doesn't make you a better person)
Spike Jonze           (We likey but he didn't make the cut for us)
David Byrne           (Finding it hard to care)
Lapo Elkann           (we're researching this guy)
David Beckham      (zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz)
Ichiro Suzuki          (Who?)
Daniel Day-Lewis   (We love him but his track record is bad)
Clint Eastwood       (What?)
Parrell Williams       (He's on our list, too!)
Christiano Ronaldo  (Whatever)
Pete Doherty           (Is it him or the heroin?)
LeBron James          (Who?)
Ed Westwick           (We refuse to acknowledge Gossip Girl)
Brad Pitt                  (We get it, he's good looking. Next!)
Justin Townes Earl   (Who?)
Jude Law                 (Oh yeah, baby! He's on our list!)
Jay-Z                       (He almost made our list)
Anderson Cooper    (He's on our list, too! We <3 him)

Here at Fashion Autopsy, we love our Johnny D. He’s quite charming and does have a certain ‘je ne ce quoi’ style about him.
However, we disagree with this list.


Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
We’re in love with EVERYTHING about him.

If you’ve seen (500) Days of Summer, you’re probably in love with him, too.
To our surprise, this little cutie pie not only can act, he can dress which makes us all swoon and want to undress him. How could GQ leave him off their list?

We're a bit pissed off so we compiled our own list of the most stylish men around—hope you agree! And if you don't, that's just part of the fun, isn't it?

We’ll stick to the Top 10 because really, we could be here all day, drooling.

FA's Top 10 Most Stylish Men 2010 

10. Ewan McGreggor
Cute doesn't begin to describe Ewan.  He's adorable, funny and actually quite stylish.  He's too underrated!  We hate that.
He tends to mix his very dressy suit jackets with jeans and tees.  We like how he uses the hanky pocket!  See what we mean?  Adorable.


9. Roger Federer
  He has a cool elegance to him both on the court and off.

8. Jason Bateman

He’s grown up on television and used to be rather nerdy. Not anymore. He’s so good looking and very talented which makes him even more desirable. He’s like good old fashioned American apple pie! We need a fork.

He sports the scruffy look better than just about any of our guys on this list. Plus, we love a guy that can accessorize.

7. Johnny Depp
We may not particularly like his style but he has one, an interesting one.  I'm sure he's told many a stylist to go fuck themselves.

His hotness oozes out of him

6.  Tom Ford
We want to be his friend.  He's just so bloody cool!  The best word to describe Ford?  FABULOUS.
He reminds us a lot of Halston; a charm and elegance that is difficult to explain.

How many people can look hot while giving us the finger?  Not many.

5. Anderson Cooper

Andy is hot. In a suit or one of those fitted T’s he sports in disaster, he’s just yummy. We hear he likes the boys but we don’t care.

We would like to be the filling in this sandwich:

4. Pharrell

We love Pharell Williams because it looks like he really thinks about each outfit he wears. He seems to pay very close attention to every detail and has a great love for fashion.

He’s impeccable. Every time.

3. Ryan Gosling
Ryan has this whole casual yet funky style to him.  He seems to know when to wear the suit and when to go casual.  He's quite the little 'mix-it-up' artist.  Wonder if he has a stylist....hmmmm.....

Love this look

Looking hot in a basic white tee. 
Very rock star

2. Joseph Gordon-Levitt
This Heath Ledger look-a-like seems to be turning heads in Hollywood lately, coming off his highly acclaimed movie (500) Days of Summer.  Let's just hope Hollywood is reading this:  PLEASE MAKE A DECENT ROMCOM AND PLEASE HAVE IT STAR JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT
God, we love this look on him.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE

He looks so much like Heath Ledger--especially in this photo

He looks like Heath here, too!  Freaky.
We're not happy about the fag hanging out of his mouth but everything else is fine by us!

1. Jude Law
Dripping with sex appeal and looks that could kill, Jude Law is phenomenal. He also knows how to put a look together—he never looks styled. That’s what we love about him the most. That and he can be unpredictable. That's why he's our #1 Most Stylish Man for 2010.

He has this James Dean thing about him

See what we mean about 'unpredictable'? Check out the shoes

It really should be illegal to look this good while running errands and blabbing on the phone

So, what do you think of our list?  Agree/Disagree??

The 2010 Golden Globes: Hits & Misses

The Golden Globes' red carpet was rather boring last night. Maybe because it was raining on Hollywood. Maybe because everyone was thinking how pointless awards shows are in the face of the current crisis in Haiti. Whatever the reasoning, we saw a lot of black last night and even though we love black, we wanted to see more colour.
We deserved some colour after some of the shit movies Hollywood gave us this year.

The biggest trend on the red carpet, other than black, was Ruffles. They were everywhere and some women got them right. Most got them wrong.

This Hits:
One of the best last night: Julia Roberts.
She wore a simple, short YSL dress but accompanied it with major glow. She looked stunning and so happy.

Maybe she’s knocked up again.

Emily Blunt: a great colour, great silhouette and the ruffles were just right.
Now, if she would just smile a bit more, perhaps the media would warm up to her. She always wears this bitchy expression on her face.
Designer: Dolce & Gabbana

Sandra Bullock in Bottega Veneta: the colour was glorious!
The best black dress: Lanvin worn by January Jones
The dress itself is cut beautifully and the ruffle around the neckline works.
Unfortunately, January wasn’t a perfect 10 last night because of that unfortunate headband choice. It wasn’t necessary and overpowered her overall look.

Another gorgeous Lanvin dress on Rose Byrne.
She looked very old Hollywood glam last night. The little hair clip was a nice touch with the soft waves in her hair. Very Veronice Lake.
When are celebs EVER going to realize that going old Hollywood is the best thing you can do when you’re clueless about fashion?

Pulling off the short dress on the red carpet is never easy but Ginnifer Goodwin did it last night.
Here she is in a cobalt blue Vionnet dress. STUNNING.

And so is her face. Her skin is like a baby’s bottom!

Carrey Mulligan in a navy blue Nina Ricci.
Love her! Major crush on Carrey these days. She looks gorgeous with her little pixie cut.

Sookie Stackhouse in Stella McCartney
Gold was another big trend last night and surprisingly, a lot of people got the look down right. Anna Paquin is one of them.

The other great Gold look: Toni Collette in Elie Saab.

She was also wearing some serious diamonds—yummy!
Fashion Autopsy wants to know if Toni would be our BFF. We love our Toni!!!

Cameron Diaz typically disappoints on the red carpet. However, she did it right last night in probably one of the hardest colours to pull off: RED!
The cut is very 1930’s glam.
Designer: Alexander McQueen

Awhile back, we posted the ‘dos & donts’ of the red dress. Cameron is a ‘Do’ because she chose a simple silhouette and didn’t show too much skin. Also, she chose very simple accessories which is key to wearing a red dress well.

Julianne get’s it right, every year. She’s fabulous.
Designer: Balenciaga
AND her face is the best accessory. She’s just ridiculously stunning. It’s not fair.

Surprise of the night: Christina Aguilera showered.
She looked lovely last night. The hair, the dress, the makeup—everything. As close to perfection as she will ever get, most likely.
Designer: Versace

The Misses:

It pains me to do this. I wanted her to be on the ‘hit list’ but Christina Hendricks looked like she was going to the prom last night. All the wrong ruffles in all the wrong places.
Her hair and makeup looked great, though. She’s gorgeous.
Designer responsible for this big, peach mess: Christian Siriano

Kristen Bell = zzzzzzzzzzzzz
She’s on her way to becoming the Jennifer Aniston of Hollywood: boring and predictable.
Designer: Jasmine Di Milo

Putting Mariah Carey on the ‘hit list’ was a long shot but I really did think she would step it up this year since she’s had great reviews of her performance in Precious.
Here she is, hanging out on the red carpet. Literally.
The sad part is, she was close. Move the neckline up and lose the Mystic Tan & greasy skin and she could almost pass as a ‘Hit’. Let’s stress almost.
Designer: Herve Leger by Max Azria

Heidi Klum: a gorgeous woman in a tragic dress. Makes her look old and frumpy and we all know, Heidi is anything but. The ruffles did her in. And the colour didn't help.
Designer: Roberto Cavalli

Halle Berry in some skimpy black dress by some designer I don’t even care to Google. Halle rarely get’s it right. She seems to lose herself when it comes to the red carpet. She dresses well on her own so I don’t understand what happens to her when she decides to buy a gown.
She has great tits, though.

Kate Hudson looked like a bride last night. She’s yet another gorgeous woman who has pretty good personal style but all hell breaks loose on the red carpet.
If she has a stylist, she should fire him/her immediately.
Designer: Marchesa

Jennifer Morrison in Louis Antonia.
Ruffles, ruffles and more ruffles. The colour is terrible on her, too. Just bad from head to toe.

Tea Leoni giving up on the red carpet, entirely.
What’s with the pearl lariat? Bleh. She can do better that.
I’m talking about her outfit and her husband.

Rita Wilson: a flowery mess

Finally, Chloe Sevigny. When she claimed her award last night, Twitter was a flutter with some VERY negative comments about her dress and her attitude. Maybe it was because the Gleeks wanted Jane Lynch to win so they took their frustrations out on poor Chloe?
Again, ruffles! Oy!
The dress is very flowing and the colour is soft and lovely. Chloe is kind of in the middle. She’s not exactly a ‘Miss’ per se but she’s definitely not a ‘Hit’ in this one.
Designer: Valentino

However, for the GG after party, she wore a very yummy black dress by Christian Lacroix.
Perhaps this one should have been her red carpet choice.
Do you forgive her for the ruffles yet? We do.

It was funny to see some of the red carpet headlines today. For instance, one website called their red carpet re-cap ‘Wet & Wild’. Yes, the red carpet was ‘wet’ but it was hardly ‘wild’.
