a little bit of je ne sais quoi

Lan_nic_2Lan_diane_1Lan_nat_1>> Mon dieu!  Alber Elbaz has been doing wonderful things at Lanvin -- the Spring/Summer 2005 collection alone has outfitted the likes of Nicole Kidman, Diane Kruger, and Natalie Portman (looks worn by each to the left, respectively).  And Lanvin's booming popularity doesn't just stop at the dresses -- his accessories are just as coveted.  The tulle-swathed pearls that everyone wanted back inNlan_neck_1 2004, anyone?  Don't worry if you didn't get yours last time around -- the pearls are back with a vengeance for Fall 2005, this time more sumptuously decorated and wrapped in orange or black velvet Lan_bandribbon.

While pearls are all good and well, the Lanvin Fall 2005 runway accessory that I really wanted to spotlight is the headband.  Nearly every model wore one, and coming after a flurry of headbands on the Spring/Summer 2005 runways, I wouldn't be surprised to see them popping up on heads everywhere.  Whether that is the case or not so much, it's still a great look -- so inexpensive and streamlined.  Go with a simple wide black band, or add a brooch left over from lastSui_band  season for a sleek look.  Or fold a scarf and tie it behind your head, Chan_band for an Anna Sui/hippy-inspired version (right).  If you prefer classic Chanel, braid three strips of cloth and then tie those back (left).  Whichever you prefer, try it, even if you haven't worn a hairband since the second grade.  If Mr. Elbaz knows one thing, it's what looks good.
