House of Harlow – we cannot wait to see Nic’s style expressed!

October 25, 2008

Nicole Richie’s Bling … “The collection is targeted at girls in their teens to women in their 30s who admire her and the prices range from $30 to $150. Mouawad is aiming to put Richie’s pieces, which feature fabric, leather, silk strings, chains, rivets, feathers and gold-plated metals.” The jewelry is said to be influenced by Nicole’s love of the 60s and 70s.  (Wonder if her previous stylist – Rachel Zoe – had anything to do with that as she loves that era) The collection will debut in the new Kitson store on Melrose when it opens in November and on ShopKitson.com. This gold-plated sundial ring with leather (pictured) was inspired by “African jewelry”, which is super beautiful and bang on trend for this seasons look. Can’t wait for more and to start shopping and wearing.

We love Orlan Double Platform T-Strap Louboutin’s!

August 27, 2008

I just love Heidi Klum’s outfit and most of all I love the way she contrasts her white frock with black Louboutin pumps. These pumps are super hot and luxurious. (Orlan Double Platform T-Strap Louboutin’s in red suede $885.00 available at Saks.com).

They are kind of gladiator meets shoe bootie. The cut is elegant and graceful with a thicker than usual ankle strap for Louboutin and sweet peep-toe.

Both are priced in the £900 price range ouch!! 

Wanted super large Chanel quilted bag!

August 14, 2008

Lauren Conrad is a very polished fashionista, she’s always well heeled and tailored to perfection and she like the other fashionista’s love the super large Chanel quilted bag. The Olsen twins, Nicole Richie and the rest of young Hollywood all sport the most wanted bag.

Minimalism is under-rated!

August 14, 2008

Hi all, I’ve been posting all my goodies (that I never wear but still have tags attached) on Ebay and the whole thing is so time consuming. Just today I have received 5 questions such as – do you post to Bulgaria and how much would postage be then?, Can I buy it now?, what are the measurements of the jacket etc. etc. I love faux fur and I have loads that I don’t wear so I loaded it.

I just really need some space as it feels as if the whole apartment has become overrun with clothing and shoes and my boyfriend jokes that he’ll need to move out soon. The second bedroom has become my walk in wardrobe and then I also have a dressing room next to my bedroom so I can understand how we might want to use the space more constructively.

What is a fashionista to do?

What I find really interesting is how I love clothing but when it comes to decorating the apartment I am very into minimalist looks and then I stumbled across this article on Carine Roitfeld’s home and we both have similar minimalistic loves in terms of home decorating. However I would have gone for more white and more of a retro feel with quirky and showcase items to attract attention.

Carine Roitfeld’s home is featured in New Paris Interiors which features a seven page look at the apartment she shares with her partner Christian Restoin and has used as a backdrop for a few of her editorials. The space is clean and light colored which is in contrast to all the black she usually wears.

Fashion Irony!

Mary Kate & Nicole Richie Fashion Sisters?

August 11, 2008

These two ‘it’ girls have soo many fashion accessories in common and I find it really interesting how they manage to  pull completely different outfits together – they look so unique.

Folksy Vibe – Bring it on!!

August 10, 2008

I completely heart this folksy trend and my favorite items is everything and if I had to absolutely choose I would take the boots number 8, the Gucci dress number 9, the two high street dresses number 3 and 1 and the black and white blouse number 4 which is also high street so better on the old budget (what’s that?) and all others also, cause they’re just essential for my happiness!!

W Mag recreates September 1994 Harper’s Bazaar Cover

August 9, 2008

Kate Hudson knocks her girl not door image to the ground with the new W Cover.

The inspiration for the September 2008 W magazine cover seems to be the recreation of the iconic September 1994 Harper’s Bazaar cover featuring Nadia Auermann and photographed by Patrick Demarchelier.

The resemblance is apparent, the dark eyes with dramatic eyeliner that turns up combined with dark lush lipstick make the blue eyes piecing…

The make- up is inspiring and makes me want to do a make-up course and indulge in lotions, potions and all things pretty!!

Photographs by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Hudson is styled by Alex White and wears Gareth Plug, Chanel and Balmain.

Kate Moss Looks Unpretty on the Cover of Vogue!

August 8, 2008

Kate Moss Looks Un-pretty!

Kate Moss Looks Un-pretty!

The August edition is the Ageless edition which profiles stylish and/or aspirational women of all ages. But what got my attention is how haggard Kate Moss looks without her hair in her face and harsh make up! Kate ends up looking tired and old which is quiet ironic since it’s suppose to be the Ageless Edition!

The most exciting part of this edition is the editors’ personal style:“it’s perhaps the most instructive portfolio we’ve ever put together… (it’s about) looking on-trend and beyond trend and totally themselves”. Forget “timeless classics every woman must have that she can wear for ever and a day” we want to be “on trend” yet “beyond trend” while still being clued into our own style!

 

Numero’s first August Edition in Korea!

The magazine’s first August issue in Korea

The magazine’s first August issue in Korea

 

Brunette’s may end up marrying more billionaires than blondes but the latest issue of Numero Korea shows that blondes still give brunettes a run for their money as far as the Icy Cool Blonde image is concerned. Model Sasha Pivovarova rocks their August cover. I heart the dark black eyeliner worn with  black tube dress, it’s simply minimalistic perfection for a blonde. This cover makes me yearn for my inner blonde!

 So back to the magazine, this is the magazine’s first August issue and to celebrate they recruited world renown photographer Camille Vivier to shoot the fashion editorial featuring Yoon Eun Hye (actress and model) and jetted off to France’s L’ Hotel, St. Germain, where the famous writer Oscar Wilde once resided.

Yoon Eun Hye (actress and model) looks stunning!

J –Lo Vs. Bee Shaffer – dress in between the lines!

August 6, 2008

J –Lo Vs. Bee Shaffer!

 It’s all about the Oscar De Le Renta summer frock….

J-Lo found it difficult to fit into this Oscar De Le Renta summer dress and during her Elle Shoot assistants closed the dress with some help from tape and rope. While the wispy Bee Shaffer, daughter of American Vogue editor (Anna Wintour) seemed to have no trouble fitting into the Oscar De Le Renta frock and coincidently wore the dress just weeks after J – Lo had so much trouble squeezing into it  …

What are your thoughts was Anna Wintour proving a point by sourcing the dress for her daughter to show rival Elle Mag that she the Vogue gals are the most chic of all, or was it just a coincident?

When Vanities Collide!

August 6, 2008

Paris Rival Lydia Hearst - Shaw

Paris Rival Lydia Hearst - Shaw

Politics and celebrity collide as Paris Hilton calls McCain and Obama ‘Bitches’. McCain started this collision of vanities when he called her a useless celeb. Paris hit back at McCain by making a vid calling McCain an old white guy from the olden days…

This whole debate is completely Yuk and so is Paris who sounds like an Ageist nasty in her vid. however she does manage to pretend to know about global environmental issues which is kinda funny but not really! To see the Video click here!

The blonde heiress needs to do something to get attention as she is left in the shadows of Nicole Richie who has evolved into the fashionista and even her rival Lydia Hearst-Shaw is landing more modeling contracts than her. (Lydia landed the luxury lingerie brand Myla, she will be the new face and body for the brand) So when this protocelebrity opportunity came along Paris jumped for joy and started her PR spin and the girls a pro. 

 It’s really strange the way people tend to hate people that are similar to them and Paris and Lydia have a lot in common, both blonde, both fame hungry, both heiresses, both attention seekers.

Nicole Richie wears a flowing tea dress very reminiscent of something Kate Moss would wear. Nicole teamed her dress with Azzedine Alaia sandals and a string of beads. It looks as though she’s wearing a short fitted black stretchy skirt underneath.

Keira Knightly wears YSL platforms and Glossy Leggings!

Yves Saint Laurent platforms and The Row leggings

Yves Saint Laurent platforms and The Row leggings

 

Keira Knightly poses in Yves Saint Laurent platforms and glossy stretchy leggings (they’re not from Lindsay’s new range) she looks beautiful with just the right combination of making an effort and not giving a damn. She has recently embraced her flat chest saying that she does not want to be airbrushed for her new movie The Duchess. The actress has been air brushed bigger breasts for previous movies and commercials.

So what’s up with you?

It's all about the New New Face!

Madge has the perfect face it’s called the New New Face see your friendly cosmetic surgeon for details, the Olsen twins also have the new face but Mary Kate has other things on her mind, no it’s not the new Mui Mui coat, she’s hiding out from the feds cause she doesn’t wanna talk, she’s looking for immunity before she spills the beans. Tyra wants to be Michelle Obama as she dresses up imitating the first lady in waiting for Harpers Bazaar. While Alex Wek is not bothered cause she thinks the likes of Claudia and Naomi look boring and Katie takes it all in her stride as she goes for a page boy cut….

So what’s up with you?
