It was the maestro of the Russian fashion, Vyacheslav Zaitsev, who traditionally was the first to present his new Fall-Winter collection 2015-2016 Nocturne. The first block of the show featured female demi season coats that became the signature garments of the Fashion House. Principal core of the collection made the formal suits, slim fit jackets and straight dresses accomplished with massive accessories. There were silk wine-coloured skirts with mixed textures, combination of graphic and floral prints on the evening gowns, plenty of adornment - which still left the collection in harmony with the calm and compete colour palette and the choice of silhouettes. Little black dress with the asymmetric collar and bright insets performed in stained-glass technique was according to designer the major highlight of the collection. As for the male line - classic coats, straight-cut suits and shirts with prints made personally by hand of Vyacheslav Zaitsev took the catwalk.

A Fashionable Icon: Audrey Hepburn

On Sunday 4th May 2014, Audrey Hepburn would have turned 85 years old. A talented actress, keen humanitarian worker, mother and fashion icon who sadly is no longer here with us will always be remembered not only for her box office movies but for her chic, understated sense of style which has been copied by stylists, designers, artists and generally women the world over.

From her critically acclaimed portrayal of Holly Golightly in 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' to her controversial role in 'My Fair Lady,' Hepburn's on-screen style has always mesmerised and delighted audiences and fashion lovers alike as her slender, athletic frame carried even the most tricky trends with ease and elegance.

With her petite, beautiful looks and chic sense of style, Hepburn differed from her other female contemporaries like the curvy Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren, yet offered women another approach to stylish dressing. Her black Capri pants, short pixie fringe and cats-eyes sunglasses, established that a new icon was born in she shape of Audrey Hepburn.

Throughout her career, Hepburn remained firm friends with respected fashion designer, Hubert de Givenchy who designed some of her most iconic gowns, most notably the gorgeous dress she wore while collecting her best actress Oscar for 'Roman Holiday' in 1953. Her little black dress she wore in 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' has remained a style staple for women's wardrobes and an instant option for party dressing, while the graceful hats Hepburn wore in the famous Cecil Beaton photographs have been images associated with high fashionable glamour and beauty.

Throughout her later years, Hepburn stepped back from the Hollywood spotlight and dedicated her time and effort to charity work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, as she helped children in impoverished areas. Nevertheless, her impeccable sense of style and vast movie history has been an everlasting vision of the 60's and no doubt will continue on into the near future. Happy birthday to a fashion icon, a wonderful lady and a talent which we will never forget: Audrey Hepburn.

What To wear On a Night out In a Casino

If you are lucky enough to be going on a night out in a casino, you’ll want to make sure you look the part. That old comfy t-shirt was fine for when you were playing on Lucky Nugget, found at LuckyNuggetCasino.com, or on another online casino site but this simply won't work for the real thing. A visit to the casino makes for the perfect excuse to get glammed up, so why not have some fun and go all out.

And it isn't only the women who can have some fun with fashion. These suits show how men can look smart and suave but can also funky up their fashion with bright bold colours and modern tailoring, perfect for a night out in a casino.

First, the Paul Smith indigo suit is £970, in the middle we have two picks from Topman, the yellow skinny suit would certainly make you stand out from the crowd and is a bargain at just £109, the grey flannel suit, is also a bit of a bargain at £195 but is slightly more understated. Both are skinny cut, giving them a modern edge which is perfect for the younger gambler. And, the Calvert three-piece suit from Reiss, £785 combines smart sophistication with quirky detailing.

These picks are fantastic for a night out in a casino and are sure to have you looking the part and feeling confident when it comes to those casino games.
