Oscar fantasy dresses

Oscars are only one day ahead and I can hardly wait the red carpet parade (and so is the rest of the fashion world). I guess you've already seen this but I couldn't resist posting it. Style.com asked 10 fashion designers to draw their dream dress for each of the Oscar nominated ladies. It's quite likely that this fashion fantasy will not match up the real Oscar red carpet but it's interesting to see how designers' and actresses' personalities join in to create the perfect dress.

Pantone Fashion Color Reports

The world-renowned authority on color, Pantone Inc., has published its fashion color report for fall 2008. Fall 2008 is described as the "season of change" defined by rich, elegant and vibrant hues.

Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute states that "fall is traditionally a time for subdued, quiet colors, but this season we are seeing a shift toward cool hues with bright, exciting undertones".
