Azure Thing

Cerulean skies, aquamarine waters, ravishing royals . . . CC loves blue, and designers do, too! And darlings, most of these catwalk images are from the Fall 2009 Collections, so alluring azures are not reserved for warmer climes!

I had a cobalt blue satin blouse in the mid '90s that made me feel so Gucci. I wore it to death. I think it was from Ann Taylor.

LOVE...the only word to describe the alluring color. I am a sucker for anything blue!

Givenchy Blog said...

Before I go on any firther, that Valentino Couture pump is jus to die for! Blue really is a special color, becasue I can see someone wearing it both in Fall and Spring. Like Gucci last season, Jason Wu this season. I never realized that too much before. Once again..AMAZING!
