leave a comment »

The month of fashion weeks has just begun and I couldn’t be more excited.  The Cut, one of my favorite fashion blogs posted on 100 designer inspirations for their Spring 2011 Collections.  I can’t wait to go back to this link after the shows and figure out if you can truly match the inspiration boards/pictures to the collections.

Click HERE for the full slideshow.

Below are my favorites with the ultimate being Marchesa.  I always look forward to the detailed craftsmanship and with their Orientalist inspiration, the details should be stunning.

Look of the Week: Darling Diane

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! 

The Belle of Cannes

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.

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.  

Look of the Week: Keen on Kate

The offspring of Goldie Hawn and Bill Hudson, Kate Hudson, is our modern day version of Marylin Monroe in this LBD (little black dress) by Louis Vuitton.  Kate chose the old school movie siren look at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of The Killer Inside Me.  I love the stunning details of black leather lining, all over the dress, which give it a modern day feel despite its traditional shape.

Who doesn’t own a LBD?  It is a wardrobe staple first introduced in 1926 by none other than ‘Coco’ Chanel.  Please have a look HERE at my other post on the LBD for more on its history and ways to wear the ubiquitous staple.  BE INSPIRED.
