Look-books: Christian Louboutin, Prabal Gurung and J.Crew

One of my favorite new discoveries is the website, Fashion Gone Rouge - a site that collects the latest in look-book campaigns, editorials and runway photos. Its a great way to keep up with whats new from all kinds of designers - big names, small names, ready-to-wear and couture. This week I came across two amazing look-books from Christian Louboutin and Prabal Gurung for J.Crew (that's a mouthful of fashion right there) - check them out, they are absolutely stunning!

For their fall 2011 look-book, Christian Louboutin collaborated with Peter Lippmann for a series of images combining the label's fall-winter collection with portraits that were inspired by classic paintings - its such an original idea to combine fashion - its own form of artistry - and true masterpieces of art.

They both seem to be looking so longingly at the shoes...seems about right.

Each shoe is so perfectly coordinated to the look of each painting - you can almost imagine the ladies wearing them under their gowns.

If I didn't know better, I would think that bag belongs in that picture.

Recently, CFDA winner Prabal Gurung got together with J.Crew to create a capsule collection - some of which are available on the J.Crew website now, and its simply amazing. The folds, ruffles, bows and piping are so well-proportioned and sculptural.

I have a crush on the pink top with the bow and black piping - not to mention the white suit. Not surprising he won a CFDA award!

Which look-book do you like better?
