Les Khakis de Chanel

Last Fashion Night Out (FNO) it was Jade and this year it is Les Khakis de Chanel.  Does Chanel really have to make me feel like I missing out any more than I already do?  I am dreaming of being in NYC for FNO and now I am jealous of every girl in the big apple that will get her hands on one of these beyond fabulous nail polishes.  My survival is solely based on the slightest hope that they will be sold internationally a month later and hopefully not exclusively in Paris, which is a rumor I have heard.

The collection, which includes Khaki Brun, Khaki Rose, and Khaki Vert, is dead-on fall 2010.  With a monochromatic fall season, what better than a monochromatic nail polish collection by the beyond amazing Chanel.  Thanks to Peter Phillips, creative make-up director, we have a fall beauty obsession!

Everyone has picked a favorite shade, as for me, I want them all! BE INSPIRED.

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!

Lauren Remington Platt at Saks & Whitney Museum Cocktail Event

White outfits are elegant, dazzling, and classic.  One of New York City’s socialites, Lauren Remington Platt, wore an all white outfit to a Saks & Whitney Museum cocktail event.  I loved how she plays with materials, such as the chiffon top worn with a stretchy silk skirt.  Then she accessorizes her outfit with fabulous silver accents.  Her heavy silver necklace, embroidered evening bag, and bedazzled shoes add an amazing richness to her outfit.  Be inspired.

The Metropolitan Constume Institute Gala 2010

with one comment

The Oscars of the east coast, the Metropolitan Costume Institute Gala, is THE fashion event of the year in my opinion.  I always wait in anticipation to see what everyone is wearing and when I head to NYC, I make it a point to check out the halls of the exhibition.  Last year’s Model as a Muse was one of my favorite themes ever.  This year, the theme is American Women: Fashioning a National Identity.  The hosts of the night were Oprah Winfrey, Patrick Robinson of the GAP, and Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue.  GAP is part of the American heritage and is a perfect match in my opinion for this year’s gala but how could GAP dress women for the red carpet?  I didn’t buy the high-end designers creating dresses for GAP.  Actually, I didn’t like the collaborations at all, maybe it was because I didn’t feel it was GAP enough.

I was impressed by the dresses this year, they truly defined American fashion which is simple, elegant, and modern.  Below are some of my favorite dresses.  The Calvin Klein clad ladies looked the absolute best, with my utlimate favorite being Dree Hemingway.

Look of the week: Refined Rachel

Rachel Bilson in Preen and Brian Atwood

 

Rachel Bilson, the actress and big time fashion enthusiast, is my best friend’s favorite fashionista because she never ceases to amaze.  At the N.Y.C. premiere of Waiting for Forever, Rachel donned a peek-a-boo cream Preen bustier dress with nude Brian Atwood pumps and a Cecelia clutch.  Who doesn’t love Preen and Brian Atwood?  Then the both of them together…on Rachel Bilson!  She looks refined yet sexy with the peek-a-boo and the pumps are simply perfect, very useful for the spring season.  Click HERE to preorder them on Intermix online.  What do you think?

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Carine Roitfeld’s daughter and one of NYC’s socialites, sports the latest spring trends with an ultimate utilitarian cool.  Her neutral dress, which is the first spring trend, is draped, trend two, and topped with a military jacket, trend three.  On top of this practical yet stylish outfit she accessorizes with classic Chanel quilted bag, sky-high chunky platforms and simple gold jewelry.  I love how the contrasting outfit works perfectly.  She is trendy yet classy, feminine yet androgynous.  Be inspired.
