And So The Future Queen Wore McQueen…

29 Apr

… and she looked STUNNING!

I am so glad (and surprised) Catherine Middleton chose Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen to make her dress. Lee McQueen was a master of bespoke British Tailoring and Sarah Burton has managed to carry on this strong sense of craft whilst  adding her own subtle elements

But back to Kate’s gorgeous gown; I LOVED IT. I especially loved the ivory satin bodice and how it emphasized her tiny waist and the drama that was happening at the back (finished with 58 gazar and organza covered buttons fastened by Rouleau loops). I’m a flamboyant girl so I would have been disappointed if she had just shown up in a plain lacy A-line number… got’s to bring the drama! I like the contemporary and Victorian combination feel to it. Very Grace Kelly on her own big day, no?

I just found Sarah Burton’s official (I guess) statement on being commissioned to design Kate’s dress. Here’s bits of what she had to say… (Source via Fashionologie incl images)

“It was such an incredible honour to be asked, and I am so proud of what we and the Alexander McQueen team has created. I am delighted that the dress represents the best of British craftsmanship. Alexander McQueen’s designs are all about bringing contrasts together to create startling and beautiful clothes and I hope that by marrying traditional fabrics and lace work, with a modern structure and design we have created a beautiful dress for Catherine on her wedding day…”

O.K. my laptop is going to catch fire if I don’t switch it off soon… also my brain cells are officially fried from lack of sleep.

Congrats to the couple… Y’all better live happily ever after!


What Designer Shall The Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton) Wear?

29 Apr

QUICK… Last minute guesses!!!

I HOPE its Alexander McQueen (Sarah Burton) like a few fashion observers are predicting, but I’m not sure… I find Kate’s style to be way too understated and quite honestly BORING. I know I’m not going to win a lot of fans for saying that especially since everyone is trying to make her this century’s style icon.  To me, she has no sense of adventure… which is why I doubt it she’ll choose McQueen

Based on Kate Middleton’s previous sartorial choices she may pick a less avant-garde designer like Julien Macdonald, Catherine Walker or Bruce Oldfield… OR what if she decides on a couple of british designers instead of just  one  fashion house? For my own selfish reasons I do hope she has picked McQueen

S/N:  So Kate’s given names become non-existent as soon as she gets married and unless the queen gives her a name she will be called ‘Princess William of Wales?

Oh the Joys of Matrimony!


Kate’s mother is wearing a Catherine Walker suit so that cancels her out for the gown, no?…

Bubumatics Fashionomics…!

26 Apr

After I posted Halle Berry’s ‘Look for Less’ I got a few more requests to put up other celebrity looks for less. My cousin Gina especially has harassed me to put up a ‘look for less’ blog for Alicia Key’s Silver Rose Gala Outfit. I like the idea especially since I’ve helped my friends and family find gorgeous outfits and accessories for a steal. I’m going to name this category “Bubumatic’s Fashionomics” and I’ll feature it once a week or more depending on demand. If you have any requests please email me or leave a comment on one of the posts and I will happily oblige.

Now back to Alicia Key’s look.  Less than $470 to be exact…

For Canadian Fashionistas; You can find the Jewelry at Forever 21, Similar Shoes and the dress at WINNERS

Guess who just landed the Biggest Recording Deal In History..?

16 Mar


well, his estate did.. I don’t know how I feel about that.. (Why couldn’t SONY make these kinds of deals when MJ was alive and in need of the money)? It is apparently a $200 million guaranteed contract with Sony Music Entertainment for 10 projects over seven years One of the albums will be of never-before-released recordings (you know how he wrote like 100 songs every time he decided to put out an album) it will apparently come out in November.. My only prayer is that the people in his camp will actually use it to pay off the debt and the rest to his kiddies I miss you Michael and I hope you are happy, laughing hysterically and moonwalking wherever you are!


Doesn’t Michael look OH SO CHIC in this gold studded top, and jacket from the women’s Givenchy Fall 2007 collection?
