Chanel Fall / Winter 2014 - 15  REady To Wear Collection at Paris Fashion Week

It’s been another crazy week, both personally & professionally, but things are starting to look up. Thankfully, there’s Paris Fashion Week to keep this Style Darling a little bit perkier. The weekend red carpet wowed with stunning looks at this year’s Academy Awards, but what’s even bigger is the latest from Chanel that hit the runway across the pond.

Thanks to the above video from YouTube, courtesy of Chanel‘s very stylish channel, we’re able to gush & gasp at the lush looks, some of which have already been modeled by the likes of Rihanna & Keira Knightley. Aside from the waist-cinching, layered looks, fabulous faces like Cara Delevingne & Kendall Jenner were spotted strutting their stuff in support of Karl Lagerfeld‘s latest designs!

Which looks were your favorites from the collection? Have you been following any specific designers this season? What trends have you spotted on the runway? Happy Styling!

Cover Craze: Kerry Washington Is Flawless For Lucky’s December Issue!


Kerry Washington for Lucky December 2013

I can’t think of a better way to send off 2013 (in the magazine world) than with Kerry Washington on the cover of Lucky‘s December issue. Not only is the Emmy-nominated actress one of the most in-demand faces in fashion, but she’s also my current celebrity obsession & secretly, I want to be her best friend! She’s utter perfection on the red carpet, but also captivates audiences on the ABC drama Scandal, as the always stylish Olivia Pope.

In the magazine’s behind-the-scenes video, Kerry talks about her favorite looks from the shoot, including a sparkling red sequined number by Yves Saint Laurent & a sexy white mini dress from design house Versace. The much-gossiped-about cover shows a stunning Kerry with blunt bangs, frosted makeup, & a feminine frock by Dior.

However, it’s clear (as if it wasn’t before) that Kerry can wear anything & rock any look. She can don the glamorous Old Hollywood style, as well as strut in a super edgy rocker ensemble without even flinching.

Aside from her critical acclaim on both the small screen for Scandal & the big screen in the Oscar-winning film Django Unchained, Kerry has had a big year. She got married, is expecting her first child, & did a killer job hosting Saturday Night Live recently. It doesn’t look like the talented actress is slowing down any time soon & I know I can’t wait to see more & more of her on & off screen.

What do you think of Kerry’s photo shoot for Lucky? What’s your favorite look of hers?

Jennifer Lawrence for In Style December 2013

Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence can’t go a day without being photographed, and it makes sense, especially after catching this behind-the-scenes look during her recent photo shoot for In Style‘s December 2013 cover. Of course, we get to see the tall, leggy blonde with her longer, fuller hair, while still loving all the recent shots for her press tour of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

Dolce & Gabbana - The One, featuring Scarlett Johansson & Matthew McConaughey

Two of the biggest stars in Hollywood are lending their acting chops & model-worthy good looks to the fashion industry’s latest short film, Street of Dreams, directed by the one & only, Martin Scorsese. Dolce & Gabbana spokesmodel Scarlett Johansson & Southern heartthrob Matthew McConaughey join forces under Scorsese’s direction for this commercial / video, celebrating the Italian fashion house’s fragrance The One ($59.00 – $82.00), which can be purchased through the brand’s official website, Sephora, Macy’s, & Ulta.

In a recent press release, Domenico Dolce shared how pleased he was with the final result, as well as Scarlett’s performance: “Scarlett is the embodiment of ‘The One’ woman… She lives and breathes every womanly nuance. She exudes desire and innocence. She is both sobriety and sensuality. There is innocence in her eyes yet her smile is laced with mischief. She is a talented actress and a beautiful woman.

Below, check out the commercial of Scarlett, clad in the brand’s signature black lace & old Hollywood glamour, playing the role of ‘The One.’

Watch This Style: Behind The Exciting Season 3 Promo For ‘Revenge’!


August is almost over & I’m getting my DVR ready to start recording all of my favorite shows that are returning this fall. This includes Revenge, which ended last season with so many twists that left me on quite the cliff all summer long!

Revenge

In the recently released season 3 promo for the ABC drama, we get a 30-second look of all the thrills that will unfold when the show premieres on September 29th! In Style shared an interview with the show’s costume designer, Jill Ohanneson, who is behind Emily Thorne’s gorgeous & flowing wedding dress, pictured in the sketch above & video clip below!

After hearing about what would happen, the dress required so many elements that I knew we weren’t going to find any one piece that would do everything we needed, & since we had three weeks of prep time at the beginning, I found the fabric, did three or four sketches, and designed it myself,” says Ohanneson, adding, “I know Emily likes very slim silhouettes, but I also knew the producers and directors wanted the fabric to float around her when she fell into the water. To make that happen, I started with a slim silhouette & built around it with tulle, since it’s lightweight and floats well.”

We ended up making four gowns- we kept one perfect, we had to build one for a stunt girl, & we made two more that can take the blood hits. We saved the original since we’d have to shoot a wedding down the line,” explains Ohanneson.
