Love’s in Need of Love Today

Love's in Need of Love Today

Good morn or evening friends
Here’s your friendly announcer
I have serious news to pass on to every-body
What I’m about to say
Could mean the world’s disaster
Could change your joy and laughter to tears and pain

It’s that
Love’s in need of love today
Don’t delay
Send yours in right away
Hate’s goin’ round
Breaking many hearts
Stop it please
Before it’s gone too far

~ “Love’s in Need of Love Today” by Stevie Wonder

Love's in Need of Love Today

Heard this on KCRW this morning and thought it was a great reminder cased in a beautiful song and luscious voice. And I felt love, true love, when Zaara Kohime came out with this dress today. In this dress you see great design and beauty combined. First start with the colors and texture—rich, textured, glorious. I can feel a million little silkworms working their magic to make the fine threads that were woven. I can feel the weight and quality of this fabric and the labor of the finest Indian artisans who wove it. I can detect the scent of the dressmaker’s perfume, the designer’s first sketch leading to this gorgeous piece. Wear it with materials turned on and you just go, “Wow!”

Lest you think I am waxing poetic over nothing here, let me point out the design. Zaara did her own mesh and did it wonderfully. She has cleverly made the silhouette of a lady with a perfect peek-a-boo at the calf, a nice simple wraparound at the bust and a form-fitting mesh that moves gracefully with the avatar. Combining the perfect alpha with great rigging is the secret here. There is no bump in the hip as it transitions from waist to hip (which I see a lot in mesh dresses) or a weirdly shaped rear-end. She even gets the transition of the fabric as is wraps around built into the mesh. I feel as exhilarated wearing this as I do driving my friend’s Audi—fine engineering and beauty give me chills.

This is why I had to style this dress with Truth Hawk’s newest hair, also a piece of beauty and fine engineering. He has finally got his HUD, his vendors, his textures down pat. Now he can send out pretty things for us to enjoy. I really have to hand it to Truth—he has never sat back on his success and let himself become obsolete as a result. H’es always seeking ways to make things better for his customers.

Izzie Button’s beautiful new skin at the Liaison Collaborative was my choice today. With several brow options, cleavage, eye makeups and lipsticks all in one pack, it’s a bargain and perfect for this elegant look. And I had to don AvaGardnerKungler’s gorgeous work again because nothing suits a beautiful dress as much as elegant and well-done jewelry. Finally, shoes with a lace overlay from Eboni Khan for Siddean Munro’s feet from Collabor88  pull it all together.

It’s a perfect moment with this look to tell you all about Harper Ganesvoort’s 5th Annual Oscar Fashion Photo Contest has started and runs until March 2. Harper funds the prizes herself and not with income from SL, so I think you would all agree the 28,500L in prizes promised so far is incredibly generous. This gown *hint*hint* would be an ideal choice for a photo.
