drew barrymore and haute couture glamour


~ Dior Haute Couture ~

When it is 79 degrees outside and the sun is shining on Thanksgiving weekend (here in Canada) there is only one thing to do........spend the afternoon on the veranda and look at fashion magazines, specifically the October issue of Harper's Bazaar. We had our turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie yesterday and more today so a peek of glamour always reminds me to hold down the portions a bit for the next week or so.You had to know I would feature this fashion shoot especially when it features a chartreuse organza dress by Givency Haute Couture. My favourite colour. And in organza. Really, how often do you see a chartreuse dress that looks this gorgeous? I think you will agree with me that Drew Barrymore as photographed by Mark Seliger is looking more than svelte and ultra- glam in all this fabulous haute couture and on the HB cover this month. In fact, I would have to say she is looking better than ever, maturing nicely isn't she?

  14. Chartreuse is a colour that actually looks good on me and I love it - not sure I could pull off a dress like that though! And Drew Barrymore is a favourite of mine - I have always pulled for her and love to see how how she has come along. Great post! And Happy Thanksgiving from a fellow Canadian.

  26. She looks amazing but what made me laugh out loud was this:
    "I feel like some of my baby fat is going away, and that s not just not physically, it's psychologically. If things are going better, I just think you look better." DB

    Her baby fat at 35 going away??? come one!!! who is she kidding? LOL she should've thanked her plastic surgeon instead. That's more believable.
