Glamour's Sweet Ode To Summer

This summer it's all about sweet sugary shades - so sweet, in fact, it could give you a tooth ache. Glamour UK perfectly defines this candy coated trend with an enchanting editorial in their June 2013 issue. Captured by photographer Pamela Hanson, US model Sharon Kavijian delightfully displays several summery looks, swirled in a confection of daintiness & femininity.


Sharon is endearingly dressed in a cherry blossom pink strapless satin dress with bejeweled flower skirt by Moschino Cheap & Chic. Her striking cerise and mint green ankle-strap leather sandals are by Charlottle Olympia.


Sharon is elegantly wrapped in a metallic powder blue satin and organza dress with drape-folded bodice and flaired out skirt from Christian Dior's Spring/Summer 2013 collection. 
I much prefer the structure of this dress in the editorial over the runway.

Keeping the trend youthful, Emporio Armani presents a rose water pink charmeuse & lamé playsuit with wide-shouldered silhouette. It has been styled with stunning red and pink Fleur heels by Charlotte Olympia and a Jennifer Behr crystal headband.

Left: Girlish allure is displayed in a vanilla cream silk and satin bustier dress by Rochas, with strappy iced strawberry sandals by Sophia Webster.
Right: Blurring the line between the high street and designer avenue, Sharon wears a menthe blue cotton lace dress by Miss Selfridge, with a tulle, chiffon and organza skirt by Johan Rocha. Her flower topped heels are by Charlotte Olympia.

Sharon is veiled in a petal pink dress with sheer specked tulle overlay by Red Valentino.

Combining cut-outs, sheerness and chiffon is a pastel pink floral printed dress with bow-trimmed bands by Christopher Kane.

Showing off a more dressed down side to the cotton candy trend, Sharon is styled in a silk and chiffon peach melba top with sheer detail and matching shorts, which is by Cacharel. She also wears a fascinating blue, pink and yellow frilled satin sandal by Charlotte Olympia.

One of my favourite looks from the photo shoot is this lemon meringue leaf crepe tiered dress with frilled skirt by Alexander McQueen. It is interestingly contrasted by red peep-toe Christian Louboutin sandals and pink rubber necklaces.

Erdem Moralioglu is to be admired for this fizzy creation of a pink, lilac and yellow jacquard Damascus-printed silk dress with sheer organza overlay studded with yellow rhinestones. 
A crystal head piece by Jennifer Behr competes this beguiling look.

Is this sugary, sorbet sweet trend something you would try out?

Hi Sam! I havent seen the editorial yet and it is utterly sweet indeed:) I like the choices of all the looks, plus also of the model since it is look like a child! I'm pretty stunned by all the dresses, in particular the Moschino Cheap & Chic and the Red Valentino are my favorite ones. Beautiful feature dear, at least it gives me some spring in this dull and rainy day!:) Kisses! xo

I would so wear this trend, I especially love the fifth dress! Some of those runway models look really sickly and it's throwing me off!

Denise said...

Oh, so sweet! Jet lag is finally nearly over - I said nearly, because this morning I found myself still sleeping late :) I love the pictures and they made me realize what I have just missed - the new monthly magazines in the UK! I like how sweet the clothes look and I loved the Red Valentino dress!!! I need to lose some kilos to be able to wear such a sweet dress, though!

Vannessa@Luxuria said...

I love all the colors, but maybe am a tad to old to try out the designs ;-) The first dress is gorgeous though x

I'm so happy about going into summer, it feels it should be that way for the whole world lol, and it makes it hard to remember that it's going into winter in other parts of the world!

Oooh, these candy pastels are gorgeous, I'm particularly loving the lemon dress, so cute! And I'm so pleased you're feeling inspired re the pinboards - have replied with some ideas on my blog. Hope you're week's going well Sam!

Trenchcoats to Tiaras said...

These are all such cute outfits - my favorite is definitely that Alexander McQueen dress. Something about petticoats... I'm not really a girl for pastels, but I have been trying to find a couple of accessories for the trend, though it's unlikely I'll ever have more than a (very) few clothing pieces in my closet. Preteen ballet recital trauma at work.

Good luck with trying out a non-meat version of the pepperoni bread - I hope it works well! I'm always up for finding new dessert recipes, even if I'm technically trying (and only sorta succeeding) to find more dinner-lunch ideas. I'd never actually heard of MS MR before you mentioned them, but they're definitely addictive! I really like Head Is Not My Home and BTSK, though I definitely like the others I've listened to as well! Also yeahhhh a little too late, unfortunately... The video for Hurricane was pretty much the first thing I saw. At least I've already seen weirder and creepier? ...that's probably not a good thing, actually, but. What are your favorite songs from MS MR?

woah. I also like the lemon meringue leaf crepe tiered dress with frilled skirt by Alexander McQueen. I find Alexander McQueen outfits are always amazing. Maybe that's the reason why Kate Middleton carry this brand occasionally.

I adore the sweetness of pastels so I would be all over this trend. The warmer weather is all about lighter colors after all :) The Miss Selfridge paired with the Johan Rocha tulle skirt is my fave look here.
