MILAN cheap nike air max lunar 90 WR , Italy, March 2 (Xinhua) -- Fashion experts called on women to become stylists of their own elegance at the fall-winter 2015-2016 women's fashion week which ended here on Monday.

What needs to be done in order to be elegant? "Elegance often does not go hand in hand with fashion," Lucia Del Pasqua, a fashion blogger author of the blog "The Fashion Politan", told Xinhua.

Gucci's floral romance, Alberta Ferretti's delicate lace cheap nike air max lunar 90 SP , Max Mara's pied-de-poule, Costume National's total black, Moschino's maxi frills and Prada's placid charm were just a few of the countless styles on stage these days in Milan.

"But elegance is something different from simply imitating or mixing styles," Del Pasqua went on saying. First of all, she pointed out, women should look themselves in the mirror and have an objective perception of their body and attitude.

"Take away" is a rule suitable for everyone cheap nike air max lunar 90 C3.0 , Del Pasqua added, as the "too much" look risks to transform women into "clowns." "Wear less things, start from simplicity," was her advice.

A good idea, as suggested by Emporio Armani's latest collection, would be choosing colors like black cheap nike air max lunar 90 JCRD , white or grey and adorn them with something that stands out, for example red buttons or an eccentric necklace.

"And you may always have a Paris style hat in your closet. It always works well," Del Pasqua said.

Matteo Bardi, a fashion trend consultant at the National Chamber for Italian Fashion, focused on a "double concept of feminine elegance" on the runways at the Milan fashion week: "an elegance made of harmonious decorations and another elegance made of technical sports-style materials."

"These days I saw lavish ruffles and glittering prints besides foam and rubber textures borrowed from the sports world," he told Xinhua.

Many brands cheap nike air max lunar 90 , he noted, have proposed both the looks, which in fact have been designed for women with different ages and lifestyles.

"On one hand, we have a career woman who does not need to amaze people, while on the other hand we have a teenager with a desire to be cool on social networks," Bardi elaborated.

Choosing a look not in line with one's age or lifestyle cheap nike air max 90 utility , though "trendy," could be not elegant at all, he warned.

"Fashion actually means building up one's own elegance," Leonor Cypriano, owner of the Leonor Cypriano Showroom in Milan, which has launched emerging brands that are now noted such as Piccione Piccione cheap nike air max 90 KJCRD ICE QS , agreed.

"Fashionable people are those able to look at the overall offer and pick what is most natural for their personality," she explained to Xinhua.

"In other words, if you dress and you like yourself, this is already fashion," she highlighted.

In today's fashion world, she underlined cheap nike air max 90 Zoom IT , there is "a desire for ideas, hints that women can use in a variety of different ways, without fixed patterns."

For this reason, Brazilian Cypriano has made of discovering new fashion talents her mission.

"Established fashion houses are very respected, but new stylists are often very good at interpreting the new need for personal elegance," she observed.

"The made-in-Italy fashion remains very attractive. Besides it there is space for all kinds of suggestions from the world cheap nike air max 90 ultra essential 2.0 ," said Cypriano, who so far has not launched Chinese stylists but told Xinhua she would be glad to enhance "their taste for a clean, pure feminine elegance."

BERLIN, Jan. 9 (Xinhua) -- Goalkeepers have it tough when it comes to the world's most important honor for individuals in football. They can only expect to be outsiders in the race for the ""FIFA Ballon d'Or"", which was known as the World Player of the Year until 2010.

When the 2014 result will be announced on January 12, Bayern Munich's Manuel Neuer therefore is just another outsider challenging the widespread opinion that goalkeepers are not ""real"" football players and are therefore not the right choice to become the world player of the year.

The 28-year-old is up against the globe's top two on-field players Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) and Lionel Messi (FC Barcelona). It appears odds on that Neuer will end up second at best even though he is the most up field oriented goalkeeper in soccer history due to his risky style which has him operating more like a defender at times.

The fact that Russian Lev Yashin (1963's winner) is the only goalkeeper to have won the prestigious honor is a clear indication that goalkeepers find it almost impossible to break through the phalanx of field players.

Besides goalkeepers cheap nike air max 90 master , it is similarly difficult for defenders get their hands on the trophy. Midfielders and strikers are always the most likely when it comes to winning the Ballon d'Or.

Neuer's supporters - like Argentine legend Diego Maradona and former winner Andrej Schewtschenko (Ukraine) - may praise Neuer for having revolutionized the goalkeeper's role in modern football, but in the mind of fans goal-scorers like Ronaldo and Messi seem to count more.

""He's not only a goalkeeper but the last man of his team - more of a defender trying to propel his team forwards,"" said Schewtschenko.

Dutch legend Johan Cruyff called Neuer an exceptional keeper and Michel Platini (President of UEFA - the European Football Federation) said a German footballer would deserve the award after the country's performance at the 2014 World Cup.

""He's like a present for us. Without him, we would not have won the World Cup,"" said German midfielder and Neuer's Bayern Munich teammate Bastian Schweinsteiger.

German head coach Joachim Loew says it can only be Neuer in 2014. Former Swiss coach Ottmar Hitzfeld said it would be about ""time to give the award to a goalkeeper. Neuer has taken the goalkeeping game into a new dimension. He's the prototype of the modern keeper.""
