Trend Spotting: New Romantics

Tapestry prints, baroque glamour, fine lace, over the top embellishment - Botticelli would surely weep this season if he saw what masterpieces designer's were serving up!

It all started with the UK Elle's September cover, staring Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, which you can see here.

My desire then bloomed into a full on love affair when I spotted the Vogue Brazil September cover yesterday - yet more baroque from Dolce & Gabanna - which you can see here.

My wish list is below (wish being the operative word) and to sum up if I could afford to wear this trend head to toe I'd be rocking Rosie's blouse, teaming it with a tapestry skirt, carrying a crucifix and shading my eyes under dramatic shades. Too OTT do you think ?
