To Cool For School.

Sportswear is having a big moment in fashion. Whether it’s Chanel’s Boxerinas or the launch of Net-a-Sporter it seems that comfort and functionality are the new LBD. This has made almost any and every fashion house incorporate a luxury backpack into their accessory repertoire, since women want a practical bag that is elegant at the same time. Here are a few of our favorite luxury backpacks, we wouldn’t be surprised if you decide to trade your trapeze for a comfier model.

Golden Globes Fashion

And so award season has begun, tis the season to celebrate that talented group of actors and actresses who have started in the most noteworthy films of the year. If like me, you watch these award shows exclusively for the red carpet then more power to you! After all, only one person can win an award per category, while absolutely everyone can sport a ravishing look to these events.

Here are my top picks for this year’s Golden Globes:

Kate-Hudson-Black-Golden-Globes-2013

Kate Hudson in Alexander McQueen

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards - ArrivalsNicole Kidman also in McQueen

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards - ArrivalsMarion Cotillard in Dior, proving once again that when it comes to elegance, less is more.

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards - ArrivalsI decided to include Anne Hathaway, not only because of her beautiful Chanel gown, but because of her heartwarming speech where she says her Golden Globe is her new weapon against self doubt. As if anyone doubted of the former Princess of Genovia’s talent!

 

 

 

 

Newsflash

Since I was gone for the most part of May, lets have a little recap about what happened last month.

– Fashion Icon Anna Dello Russo will be designing for HM

-Vogue finally decides to bend its arm and creates a policy, or more like a ban on models that are below their ideal weight (in other words anorexic looking models). Lets see how much they actually stick to their policy.

– Chanel picked a new cover girl. But guess what? Its a boy!

-The Met Ball took place on May 10th in order to inaugurate the Costume Institute’s latest exhibition: Schiaparelli vs. Prada: Impossible Conversations . However I can’t decide what was more worthy of attention, the exhibition itself or the delicious outfits the guest celebrities wore to the event. Here are a few of my top picks.

Currently Craving Vol II

These beautiful Pierre Balmain jeans. I saw them at Scoop and it was love.

 

a Cut 25 two tone Blue Leather Jacket. Cut 25 is Israeli designers Yigal Azrouel’s more affordable diffusion line.

Funky printed Harem Pants!! With the arrival of warmer weather they’re a nice way to add color to your outfits.

These YSL shoes enamored me since I saw them on the runways of Paris Fashion Week. Plus pretty much every publication available decided to include them in their March editorials making me lust after them even more.

An Alexander McQueen clutch…

… Or clutches, I want them all!!

A beach vacay

Actually forget about the beach vacay  and take me to Miami instead!!

Currently Craving

The bad thing about being so obsessed with fashion is the fact that my mind is constantly dreaming about what will be my next purchase. At the moment I am craving…

a Yigal Azrouel Lambskin Jacket

Skulls on my feet

Both shoes are from Alexander McQueen

A pair of leather shorts. I have no preference of brand but those are from Alexander Wang.

Pastel colored jeans.

A pair of python boots. Again I have no preference in brand but those are Christian Louboutin.

Never stop wishing!!

Fashion’s Campaign Trail

It seems like fashion advertisers are more creative than ever with this year’s spring campaigns. From Alexander McQueen’s surrealist campaign to Prada’s grace Kelly inspired ads, one could conclude that marketing experts went the extra mile so that no one could say their campaigns were “repetitive.”

However there is one spring campaign that is creating even more of buzz in the fashion world. Diane Von Furstenberg’s spring campaign may be a little hard to understand, yet it has people all over the world talking. It is inspired by Salvador Dali’s surrealist paintings and features a faceless model that has a mirror for a face. Von Furstenberg says the whole reason behind the mirror is so that the person looking at the campaign could envision herself in the dress, instead of the model wearing it. The brand also has a new slogan to go with the new approach to advertising itself, which is: “be the woman you want to be.”  This is a truly inspirational campaign that takes on an innovative approach that has never been seen before.
