New York Fashion Week is underway, Nemo or no Nemo, & while fashion critics are braving the blizzard to see what’s going on for the ultra chic Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear Collections, I wanted to share some of the best Spring 2013 Haute Couture Collections, including Chanel. I’ve previously featured collections from the legendary French brand, including the Fall 2012 Haute Couture Collection & the latest Pre-Fall 2013 Collection, which continuously prove the decadence of the luxury behind the Chanel empire.
This latest line follows suit with classic tweeds in washed pastels, as well as floral details, lace accents, uber-high peep toe boot leggings, & a mix of leather & feathers. While the head-to-toe runway looks are perfect for editorials & perhaps a promotional appearance for Lady Gaga, there are so many pieces that will certainly scream out to stylish celebrities like Alexa Chung, Blake Lively, Keira Knightley, Clemence Poesy, & Diane Kruger.
When a celebrity says that they’re wearing a design by Lanvin, then you automatically known that it’s going to be glamorous. We’ve already seen some of the latest Pre-Fall 2013 Collection pieces at work on the red carpet, including Emma Stone‘s ravishing sweetheart look from the Gangster Squad premiere in Los Angeles, a featured in a Top 10 Celeb Sightings post! However, this collection includes stunning separates, ranging in a variety of styles- if you’re into that Katharine Hepburn menswear look, or love what Rooney Mara’s character, Lisbeth Salander, rocked in Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Not to mention there’s so much luxe style here with animal prints, fur trims, leather accents, belts, & edgy boots. The collection marks a progression since its Spring-Summer 2013 Collection, which featured a mix of light & dark tones, along with mod silhouettes. Other stars who love Lanvin include Claire Danes, Jennifer Garner, Blake Lively, Natalie Portman, Zoe Saldana, & more!
I’m excited to share with readers these sneak peek images of the latest & final season of Gossip Girl, which is currently in production. Not only has the show been in the news with buzz surrounding the fabulous fall fashions, but British style import Alexa Chung is reportedly making a cameo in an upcoming episode, possibly playing herself.
Of course print ads of celebs starring in campaigns for fragrances are always juicy to look at, especially when we’re talking about Savages star Blake Lively, however almost one month ago, I informed readers of Blake’s collaboration modeling for Gucci Premiere. While I was browsing through the web just recently, I found a short sneak peek at the Gossip Girl actress in motion in a clip from the film that supports the scent. Under the direction of Nicolas WindingRefn, this golden girl is clad in sequins overlooking the Los Angeles skyline, as well as in a flowing navy gown in the desert. Take a look at the commercial below & share with readers what you think about this campaign.
This new category, Top 10 Celeb Sightings, is just another way for us to enjoy some celebrity-inspiration. Of course, there’s no question that when celebrities get it right, there’s this fantastic moment of joy in the world of design & style. I’m always finding fabulous images of some of my favorite celebrities out & about or hitting up a red carpet for an event & just want to post the image so we can share in the glory. What better conversation starter is there than.. “Did you see fill-in-the-black in that fill-in-the-black?”
Blake Lively is everywhere! With the premiere of Savages, the Oliver Stone-directed action drama, as well as her latest campaign for the fragrance, Gucci Premiere. The bombshell shows off her Old Hollywood glamour with Veronica Lake-like waves, a long-sleeved embellished evening gown, & open back. The former Chanel-spokesmodel is high in-demand, especially since it’s been announced that this coming fall will see the farewell season of Gossip Girl.
In addition, a short film about the fragrance is set to premiere at the Venice Film Festival on September 1st, directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, starring Blake. Do you think the California-born actress is overexposed or do you want to see more of her? Happy Styling!
During this week’s episode of Gossip Girl, the show celebrated its 100th episode of upper East side luxury with a tribute to Marilyn Monroe‘s famous song “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend.” Serena, played by Blake Lively, starred in her own dream sequence, recreating the dance number, featuring the male cast, as well as a cameo from Blair herself, played by Leighton Meester, paying tribute to the more demure & classic style icon, Audrey Hepburn. It took a few days for me to finally find a video of the scene, but I have it here for my Style Darlings. Also, if you’d like to compare it to the original, there’s also video of Marilyn’s version, something every gal should see! Happy Styling!
I’ve been compiling a long list of my favorite looks during the 2011 calendar year & while there are still a few days left, I wanted to share the highs of the red carpet, press events, famous Style Darlings on the street, as well as the looks that have made the headlines. This is the ultimate gallery of the ensembles to wear for formal occasions, out & about on the street, to a cocktail party, or a date night, including the best descriptions that I could find of who wore what! For more looks that I’ve featured this year, check out Darling of the Day, Red Carpet Review, Magazine Must-Haves, Silver Screen Style, Style ABC’s (x3), & Watch This Style- all categories that thrive on celebrity-inspiration for your style on a budget. I hope all of you had a prosperous 2011 & continue to do good for those around you, as well as for your style! Happy Styling!
It’s been unseasonably mild so far this winter on Long Island, but it seems that stars all over the country, including Camilla Belle here in Hollywood with a Tolani scarf, are gearing up for the change in temperature. Wearing layered pieces like a leather jacket with a tunic top, scarf, skinny jeans, & knee boots creates a look with dimension, personality, & shows that you’re an on-trend Style Darling!
