I still have some difficulty in finding appropriate synonyms. Thank you very much for your previous post.

1) Since his murder, his sister Donatella has taken over (synonym) as the head of design and she has kept up (synonym) the flamboyant (??) nature of collections.
2) Penelope Cruz is a dream come true (synonym) for Mango. She not only designs clothes for celebrities but also jeans and knits (synonym) for more casual daywear (synonym).
3) The celebrity-fashion mix (synonym) is hot (??) right now with Kate Moss designing a capsule (?) collection for Topshop and Madonna enganged by H&M.
4) This was a first venture into (synonym) clothing for Penelope Cruz.
5)Her clothes are based on vintage pieces (synonym) from her own wardrobe and this year will include three distinctive themes: evening dresses for every occasion, retro-marine (??? Synonym) combined with romantic floral pieces, and a more “ad lib” (??) Californian line.

  1. The problem you're having with finding synonyms is that you're looking for synonyms for idioms or phrasal verbs, not for single words.

    Try finding alternate phrasing in these collections first. Then let me know if you are still having problems.

    For example, "take over" is a phrasal verb (a verb and a preposition or adverb that takes on an idiomatic meaning). Find it here, alphabetically, and then adjust your sentence:

    Let me know what you come up with.
