Using Clothing and Accessories as a canvas brings Fashion to the next level

I loved the Dolce & Gabbana painted organza gown Rose McGowan wore at the amFar event the other night.

I love the Clothing and Accessories as a canvas. I’ve always thought of Clothing as Art but this is taking it to a new level by mixing what people consider “real” art with Fashion to create Fashion2. It reminded me of the Prada line for Spring/Summer 2008 that mixed Art with Prada’s usual beautiful clothes. Below are some of my favorite items from that line.

You know how I love statement jewelry…Ok the few of you who read this blog know;). Well Fabsugar had a post about a ring that I think is a statement piece for spring. It was a post on the line of splurge vs steal. I would take either one of these rings. What about you?
