Journey McLaglen, the designer for Prism Haute Couture, has just released a new gown called “Fierce.” Unlike the image you get from this name, the gown is nothing but stunning, amazing, eye-catching AND one of the most elegant gowns I have seen.
Yes it is “fierce” in that the texture pattern is of a zebra and panther, all in black and white. The zebra pattern is used on the left of the entire gown while the panther is used on the right and the two mesh with each other in the center in what is like a zig–zag form. Then gown itself has a very simple silhouette with the hem of the skirt being longer on one side.
This is a gown that looks awesome standing still as well as with movement as you see the soft flexi prims of the skirt bounce and twirl as you move. Since I have worn this, I have had two people IM me about the gown in just an hour, which does not happen that often, and also had a photographer comment how gorgeous the gown was.
I can simply say, you get noticed in this gown!
I used this hair from a Japanese hair designer, ADKing Aeon of ‘Glitter’, called Lala. This was one updo that was similarly both fierce as well as elegant that matched the image of this gown so perfectly. I just could not see myself wearing a regular updo as the gown had so much impact that any regular updo will just be too boring.
On the other hand, I didn’t wear much jewelry with this as both the whole texture and the zig–zag pattern in the front and back had enough impact that adding anything more to this would be an insult to this great design. So I simply added some drop type pearl earrings and that was enough.
Black and white outfits usually can look quite stunning when a little bit of ‘red’ is added. So here I wore a new Candace Skin with deep red lips from Genesis and also a pair of black high heels from Digit Darkes that has bright red soles. This is quite effective as you can see glimpse of red through the skirt as you walk. A subtle but elegant way of adding red without spoiling the design. Needless to say, nails should be red too.
