Mrs Trump redeems her look with a McQueen dress.

Recently I’ve written with horror about the fuchsia Delpozo dress Melania Trump wore for her UN speech, today she rectifies that, and & redeems herself, wearing the closest dress to our heart from the McQueen Autumn/Winter 2018 collection. Hosting the PM of Thailand and his first lady.

Those who follows mahashouse fashion blog will know our bias to the McQueen house. They can’t go wrong in our eyes.

Bravo Melania, great choice that ideally suits you, I would choose McQueen as your prime designer.

Melania Trump Fashion Faux Pas!

Quite rarely does Melania Trump fails at her fashion choices, fact is so far I’ve been an admirer of her outfits, I think they specifically suit her post as a first lady, after all if you copy Jackie Onassis, how can you go wrong. Yesterday sadly though, she wore that pink thing at her UN speech. Not sure who was her stylist but whoever it is, gets a big fat 0 from mahashouse.

Here’s a perfect example of why we shouldn’t always follow trends, the dress Melania chose to wear here is by Deplozo, possibly fitting for a young, trendy model, but definitely not for a 47 year old lady, making a UN speech.

Believe me we like to stay positive here and only post nice fashion blogs, but sometimes you have to warn readers of exactly what not to wear, especially if you are the USA first lady that’s being watched by the world.

Melania I guess everyone is entitled to a fashion faux pas, so remember now you’ve had yours, we’re watching you….Lol x

Florence Wedding Best Dressed!

I’ve recently attended a beautiful marriage ceremony in Florence/Italy. The wedding was a blast, we had so much fun, from the fresh Tuscan foods, to the beautiful flower decorations, the extravaganza lasted 3 days of celebrations, but moving on to the most important part…FASHION.

Along side the Gorgeous bride, I could have sincerely picked up so many young ladies as a best dressed, but unfortunately only one princess can be crowned.

19554061_1374365359348185_8900903403408973054_n

The Bride Farida El Sabh wore the most beautiful Couture embroidered lace gown, and for me that was the wedding dress of this season.

I have 2 nights to rate, the night before the wedding and the Wedding day.

Drum drum…  For the pre-wedding night, the winner was, a young lady by the name of Hafiza Younes.

She wore a beautiful Fendi Apron style dress from their Spring/Summer 2017 collection, and if I may add, she wore it far better than the original model.

The wedding Night bar the bride, THE BEST DRESSED for me was the Bride’s sister in law Hana Hammouda, who carried off an amazing Tule couture dress, she accessorised it with long pearl earrings which complimented it to the T. Bravo Hana, great figure and perfect style. IMG_0719

Yours truly wore a 2016 Spring/Summer Emilio Pucci dress, as worn by Emily Blunt at George Clooney’s wedding.

She Stole My Look :)

I don’t mind, its not everyday that Victoria Beckham wears the exact same style you wore last year, so I’m truly flattered, wish I had her figure though.

In this week’s Hello, Victoria Beckham is featured with her son in this look, I wore this with my other half last year to a Luncheon @Corrigan’s Mayfair. The exact date was 26th of June @ 14:24 thank God for iPhone. 🙂 🙂

7 Top Evening Dresses For This Season

My featured image is a dress by Erdem.

Erdem Moralioglu is arguably one the most talented British designers of this century. No one does print or demure better in my mind.

Established in London in 2005 the designer ready-to-wear label, ERDEM, has come to be synonymous with versatile yet powerful femininity. Known for his use of experimental textiles, vibrant prints, and detailed craftsmanship, Erdem has created a beautiful world of the delicate mixed with the bold. I chose 3 of my favourite Autumn/Winter evening Erdem dresses.

McQueen Autumn Winter 2017 Show!

Yes, right here watch the amazing Autumn/Winter preview collection,

The collection is inspired by pagan landscapes, creative communities and ancient traditions of Cornwall particularly the “Cloutie” Trees. These spiritual trees are places of pilgrimage, their branches and twigs adorned with colourful ribbons and personal treasures representing the hopes and dreams of those who tied them.

A final sequence of silk tulle evening dresses crafted in four different embroideries includes a bullion lattice pattern with satin-stitched medieval flora and fauna motifs within and a dove lace encrusted with scattered tiny beads and sequins. This is followed by an embroidery inspired by old alchemy illustrations, druid symbols and Cornish wildlife rendered in black and silver beads and glass stones, and finally, a ‘Tree-of-Life’ embellished with glass beads, micro bugle beads and stones. They are all finished with fringes and loose threads with feathers or a metal charm at the end, evoking the magic and mysticism of the treasures of a pagan Wishing Tree.

Hats off to Sarah Burton…Lee would be proud.

7 Top Shoe Picks For This Season

Shoes!!! need I say more, along with Diamonds, they are a girl’s best friend, I cherish mine so much, they have their own place in Mahashouse, where I visit once a day 🙂

Unless you’re blessed with nice toes, I would steer away from open toe sandals/shoes, also consider comfort before you splash out ‘note to self’, I’ve often spent a ridiculous amount of money on high heels uncomfortable shoes, that I ended up wearing just the once, high heels is not necessarily uncomfortable, but indeed the way they are made, so think twice, or better yet, when shopping, take a friend with you to help you decide, specially if they are an expensive piece, make sure too that they are an investment piece, that you can dig them out any time  you need them, and that they won’t just be for one season and then go out of fashion.

So here are my top 7 picks for this season.alaiaa

  1. At number one Alaïa’s sandals have been crafted from black suede and finished with button-like straps that mimic the label’s signature laser-cut patterns. They’re interspersed with polished gunmetal pyramid studs to add a hint of shine. Style yours with a cocktail dress or sharp tailoring.

gianvitto-rossi

2. At number 2, are these sexy Mules, I love Mules and will wear one whenever I’m on a date night with my other half, Gianvito Rossi’s crimson satin mules are one of my favorite styles from the Resort ’17 collection. Embodying effortless evening glamour, this lustrous pair is set on a pin-thin heel and detailed with frothy frayed trims at the crossover front. Showcase yours with a cropped hem.

docle-et-gabbana

3. Dolce & Gabbana’s opulent ‘Bianca’ sandals have a sculptural crystal-embellished block heel and buckle. Crafted from supple black suede and lined in leather, this pair has crossover straps and an elegant peep toe. Keep them in focus with midi hemlines. This is an investment piece.

the-row

4. The Row is synonymous with modern sophistication. A sleek take on the classic loafer, this ‘Noelle’ version is crafted from the softest suede and complete with a low heel and padded insole to ensure around-the-clock comfort. Wear yours with everything from tailoring to jeans. Blessed to own this one, they are on the smaller size though, The Row have enovated the round heal.

5. Givenchy’s boots have been meticulously crafted from smooth stretch-leather – the sleek over-the-knee silhouette is a must-have this season. Set on a slight heel, they’re trimmed with the label’s signature silver chain. Showcase yours with midi hemlines.

Prada Mule.jpg

6. I told you ‘I love Mules’. Prada’s mules have been beautifully made and hand-finished from smooth black suede with an elegant ‘V’-shaped front – love how it creates a flattering leg-lengthening effect. Wear this timelessly chic pair with everything from tailored pants to midi skirts and dresses.

Alaia.jpg

7. Last but not least by any means, Alaïa’s sandals are expertly crafted from soft black suede that’s laser-cut in a signature geometric pattern. Set on a slender 90mm heel, they’re designed with two wide straps that elegantly frame and flatter the foot and a slim ankle one for extra support. Keep yours in focus with cropped pants and midi dresses.

Alaïa is another pride for Arabic fashion designers, although his fashion house operates from France, Azzedine Alaïa is originally Tunisian.
