Look of the Week: Darling Diane

leave a comment »

 

Diane Kruger in J. Crew, Hermes bag, and Lanvin shoes

 

Diane Kruger is by far one of my favorite fashionistas.  This week, just back from St. Tropez, Diane is taking New York, New York style; sporting none other than one of THE American retail brands, J. Crew.   She mixed two colors that I never thought of putting together, a bright purple sweater cardigan with a chrome green tweed skirt.  She accessorized with a black Hermes across-the-shoulder bag, Lanvin nude pumps with black ankle straps and gold chain details, and a straw fedora.  The whole outfit is UNEXPECTED, stuff I would never think of putting together, but it WORKS.  She looks amazing.

Having a guy like that by your side sure helps your look!

Kate Moss for TopShop

leave a comment »

 

The Kate Moss for Topshop summer collection has finally been launched!  Above is a video of Kate Moss modeling the collection.  I love the soft lighting continuously used in ads this season.  For those of you who have been waiting in anticipation, the collection is light and breezy with a lot of high-waisted feminine shorts.  The collection consists of more than 80 pieces. She played with fabrics such as lace, suede, silk and more.  Below I created 3 outfits from the collection.  What do you think?  Are you as excited as I am?

The Belle of Cannes

leave a comment »

I have always loved Kate Beckinsale’s red carpet look.  This year at Cannes, Kate has my vote for the belle of the Cannes 2010 Film Festival.  She wore Marchesa, Gucci, and Balmain with each dress completely different from the other.  

Kate started her Cannes red carpet appearances with the premiere of Robin Hood in a gorgeous wedding-like Marchesa.  The tulle train and embellished corset are exceptional Marchesa details.

She later donned a fabulous shiny off-white off-the-shoulder Gucci gown with silver bows.  The dress is flattering and simple yet all the SHINE makes it Cannes worthy.

Then came serious change, the Balmain rocker dress.  The dress flaunts Kate’s toned body, looks glam and edgy, all at the same time.  The studded gold and black belt creates a really nice break to the all sequined dress.

Look of the Week: Dashing David

David Beckham's Airport Style

 

In an immaculate airport outfit, David Beckham looks dashing.  The practicality of his outfit while remaining to look stylish is what makes this outfit truly exceptional.  He layered a grey sweatshirt on top of a navy blazer and a white v-neck tee, useful when on a cold airplane.  Ladies, take a cue from David, you can look chic when traveling and not at the expense of comfort.  I am not sure what the maroon beanie is for, maybe to avoid paparazzi or maybe to keep him warm.  The dark camel braided belt is awesome but what truly is phenomenal is forest green doctor bag.  The bag is uncommon yet hip and can fit a lot of the personal belongings we lug around when traveling.  Be inspired. 

Springing into Summer

(Forever 21 dress, Zara cropped cardigan, Miu Miu bag, and Christian Louboutin pumps, jewelry from all over)

Spring is almost over and the summer is kicking in, full power.  Taking on prints this summer season is a huge hit.  My Forever 21 dress is a couple of seasons old but the colors and the print look on trend.  The cream cardigan is my favorite Zara purchase of the season so far, actually that and a pair of shoes which I will wear soon.  I love the femininity of the cardigan with its delicate sleeve details.  Then I accessorized my outfit with gold earnings, bangles from all over the place, a beige Miu Miu bag and camel Christian Louboutin heels.  My cardigan is the only item of this whole outfit purchased this season.  So dig through your closets and I am sure you’ll find different items to wear that are stylish and on trend this season.  

The Chanel Resort 2011 Collection

with one comment

If you’re a fashion fanatic you wait for the Chanel Resort collection held in St. Tropez this year.  With more than 80 outfits to choose from your bound to find something you’d fall in love with.  Karl Lagerfeld has done it again; BRAVO!  The setting was gorgeous with models coming onto the runway in speed boats and Georgia May Jagger was escorted on a motorbike by Sébastien Jondeau.

The extensive collection constisted of pastel printed resort wear, pastel colorblocks, white romantic dresses, hippie rocker chic outfits and more.  The collection tailored, in my opinion, to everyone.  What do you think?  Be inspired.

I am simply in love with these upcoming items.  The one piece is so Chanel yet modern and perfect for the riveria.  The maxi printed silk dress looks like a cool cover-up, maybe perfect for Nikki Beach.  The blue jumpsuit, I imagine wearing it to dinner at the Andrea beach.

The internet and almost every fashion blog is buzzing about the Chanel Resort 2011 fashion show in St. Tropez.  The festivities began with a screening of Remember Now, a short film by none other than Karl, then later dinner at Le Café on the Place des Lices and a game of bocca.  Below are some pictures of the pre-show festivities.  I’ll definitely be posting post-show as soon as I get my eyes on the collection.  It will no doubt be fabulous and I can’t wait.
