Junya Watanabe Zebra Dress & Winner For Current/Elliot Giveaway

June 24th, 2009

Congrats to Thumbelina Fashionista, the winner for the Current Elliot Giveaway.  Thanks everyone for participating and hopefully we will have another giveaway sometime in the near future.

Even though I’m a big fan of black and white zebra print photography, I have never owned any animal print clothes in my wardrobe and this season I’m open to trying something new. I’m wearing this Junya Watanabe out to dinner with Loc. Zebra prints are fun to wear but they can look harsh if you don’t do it right. I keep the look really simple and make it pop with a bright red lipstick. I’m so excited about this zebra print piece because I can wear it in so many combination with any neutral things in my closet.







Wearing: Junya Watanabe top/dress, YSL tribute pumps, vintage clutch & earrings

Ninitip: When you wear any kind of animal print always keep your
accessories minimal and your finger nail color muted. That way your look is more
clean and glamor.

Have a nice day everyone!!!! xoxox Nini Nguyen

    So glad you decided to get the dress, Nini. It looks amazing on you. (Let me know if you want to borrow the matching top!–though that would be zebra overload!) I especially like the last photo–has a spontaneous, natural feel. :)

    Hi Nini-
    I’m glad to see your smile back. You have a beautiful smile darling. I have noticed the Ninitips lately and I think it’s very helpful. Thank you for a wonderful blog. Your outfit is stunning as always.

  35. June 25th, 2009 at 11:09 | #35

    Gorgeous dress! I love that you chose the background setting of the horse statue… how fitting! And I just saw that you purchased those Lanvin ballerinas in your last post. I just got similar ones yesterday, but with the darker leopard print. They’re gorgeous, aren’t they? Have a great day :)

  36. June 25th, 2009 at 11:10 | #36

    Congratulations to Thumbelina!!!

    Nini,I´m not sure what I love more:
    the amazing horse sculptures in the back
    or your zebra dress!
    How sweet you create “Ninitips”!!!:))) a constant column in every post!!!

    Wishing you a wonderful rest of the week!!
    Beautiful Blessings

    Two thumbs up for Thumbelina! CONGRATS!

    HEY YO WOW! This dress is amazing! I love all the pictures, this time more soft and more feminine. You’re so very versatile, Nini! JUST LOVELY!
    There is something magical and something mysterious in the last picture – and your smile is so fascinating…… It puts a bright smile on my face as well.
    Of course the background is epic!
    much love to you

    hi my sweet!
    how are you darling, you look absolutely beautiful dear! i love that black and white print on you. hubby and my familty are well my sweet so thank you for asking. we are enjoying the summer,ive been working hard.
    I love those bangs on you so much my sweet! you look so beautiful.

    my love thank you for your lovely comment on the jeans. it is so easy to do. get an old pair of jeans you would not miss, then splatter bleach. then when washed, rip it up to suit you.

    my love i dont do any exercise at all, which is bad. i walk alot though for all the styling, picking samples and appointments so thats the only physical thing I do my sweet. I walk so much so maybe thats were the stomach is from :)

    darling if you were in London we would so do dinner all the time. I hope Loc is well!
    big kiss

    this whole look really look great on you, classy and feminine and edgy and chic and sophisticated and… the tip is useful, could it be applied to floral dresses too??

  47. June 25th, 2009 at 17:36 | #47

    The dress is perfect on you, I love the asymmetric shoulder and
    and the offset zebra print, so flattering. The dress is really flattering on you. My favorite photo is the water one.
    Tell Loc I’m glad he likes my blog too, although I doubt he is interested in the fashion portion…haha

  48. June 25th, 2009 at 18:58 | #48

    these photos are great – the dress looks amazing on you, and the YSL shoes are my favorite!

  49. June 25th, 2009 at 20:12 | #49

    The zebra dress is so beautiful on you. You’re a stunning and I love the new hair cut. You should do a little profile about Loc so we all can get to know him 😉

  51. June 25th, 2009 at 21:04 | #51

    Nini, I love love love your Junya Watanabe zebra dress. Stunning pictures and definitely adoring the close ups! Loc always does a beautiful job with the photography. I hope you are doing fabulous and your summer is going well! Take care :)

    what a pretty stylish dress, it’s so clean and sexy at the same time.

  54. June 26th, 2009 at 12:08 | #54

    I think more people should take that tip into consideration! There are far too many times I see girls in cheetah print with red nails and gaudy accessories…

  55. June 26th, 2009 at 12:29 | #55

    the animal print looks great on you! i don’t know what it is – the bangs? the smile? the red lip? but you look so cute in these photos!

  56. June 26th, 2009 at 13:08 | #56

    That dress is beautiful!

  57. June 26th, 2009 at 13:25 | #57

    I really adore the so graceful way you play with the water, AND always astonished by the way your YSL Tribute “Fetishistically” sublimate your (Dizzy) Delicacy . . .
    ps: It Truly would be such a Pleasure to be attacked by a sparkling “Fashion Zebra” as You !!!!

    à Bientôt, Antoine

    Love this! The style and fabric is quite atypical for Junya Watanabe, but it is delightful nonetheless. You look like you stepped out of a Wong Kar Wai film!
