Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld is shopping around a new trend. It is inspired by the look of the Middle East. On paper, this sounds fine. Yet, once on runways, it is scandalously turning heads. And not entirely in a good way.
It's called The Murban.
That's an abbreviation for the male turban. Once common headgear for beautiful goddesses in a David Selznick movie from the 1940s (think Gone with the Wind), the look is now being touted for men. The look entails a swath of white ivory fabric wrapped around the man's head and dotted with a diamond gem. The Murban evokes the style of Middle Eastern princes. Modeling the murban is Karl Lagefeld's young boyfriend and his fave male model, Baptise Gabiconi.
The newest trend in handbags for spring 2013 may look like an oversized coin purse but these unexpected new mini bag shape are essential to any fashionista’s handbag arsenal.

Brad Pitt is the new face of Chanel No. 5 and there has been a lot of buzz over the respective ads as Pitt's the first male to represent the iconic brand's No. 5 scent.
Joining Marilyn Monroe, Nicole Kidman and Keira Knightley, as a spokesperson, Pitt brings an air of mystery and smolder to the black and white commercials. "It's not a journey. Every journey ends, but we go on," Pitt says in a voice-over as a nature scene is depicted on screen with a pretty woman, then a city scene. "The world turns, and we turn with it. Plans disappear, dreams take over."
Taking home a rumored paycheck of over six-million dollars for the ads, Brad Pitt, at 48, shows us "sexy" has no boundaries. With over 4-million hits on you-tube, his Chanel ad has both the fashion set and the world at large taking notice. "But wherever I go, there you are," he says. "My luck, my fate, my fortune. Chanel No. 5, inevitable."
Some say that George Clooney would have made a better choice. What do you think?! Is there ever such a thing as too much Brad Pitt?
Our first Resort 2013 Roundup highlighted just some of our favorite trends from summer’s debut of the Resort 2013 season. The designers who offered up covetable collections to appease our fashion appetites in between major seasons seemed to have all been on the same page when it came to energizing prints and jet-set-worthy frocks. To sum up part one of our trend roundup, stripes and florals covered everything from mini skirts to wide-leg pajama pants. However, the pre-season Resort collections were just too good not to take notice—there’s still more great fashion we can’t help but talk about.
With her stunning green eyes, trademark full brows, and eclectic style, up-and-coming model Cara Delevingne is quickly becoming the one to watch. The younger sister of established model Poppy, Delevingne knows a thing or two about the fashion world.

Voluptuous red pouts made their classic marks on seasons past, but they are definitely (and devilishly) here to stay. Luckily, for the spring and upcoming summer season, the perfect red pout doesn't show up to the party alone; she's invited three hot friends: fuchsia, melon, and orange. Because these colors are all so hot this season, we’re going to point you in the right direction of all the kissable hues you just have to get your hands on!

Big bangles are the latest fun accessories hitting the streets for this spring and summer. We saw them on the runways during SS ’12 FW, as designers everywhere decorated their models with big, bold, bulky bangles. From Fendi, to Yves Saint Laurent, to Chanel and Donna Karan, big bangles were a themed accessory. Chanel opted for gold gemmed cuffs, while Donna Karan chose bulky wooden bangles.
As the weather warms, bangles are appearing everywhere. This accessory really makes a bold statement with striking colors and daring patterns. Wear them alone, or pile them up to create a fierce look.
