Yes, I am in a "fashionisto" state of mind at the moment thanks to Project Runway, SNL and Christian Siriano. Looking through Style and British Vogue, this Fall/Winter '08/'09 is all about the black...with hits of some red, white, and silver. Kendall said it best, "Black is the new Black!" If we all take regard they will be glamorous seasons indeed. Though we'll need those pops of red and silver sparkle to prevent us from collectively looking a bit dour. Overall, some amazing artistry took to the runways for the various fashion weeks around the globe and it looks like Mister Christian was right on target. These are some of my favorite picks.

Introduced to me through Melissa at Ruby Press, Jenny Packham's collection is absolutely breathtaking and a distinctly modern homage to retro glamour. She is most definitely on my top list this year.
