With Ellen as host, and a list of nominees so impressive, Oscar night 2014 was set to be a fabulous affair, and it did not disapoint. Filled with all the right amounts of laughter, sap, and pizza, the show pulled on our heartstrings, inspired us, and even whet our appetites.
As always, Glam Damn It kept a watchful eye on the fashion, noting all the successes and cringing at the failures. Although there were hundreds of contenders, here are our top and bottom choices from the night.
As you'd suspect from any fashion it-girl, Olivia Palermo j’adores Dior. It’s always one of her Paris Fashion Week highlights, with the Spring/Summer 2013 show being no different, as Olivia shared on her blog before jetting to Africa.
We can't get enough of Olivia's navy Dior peplum dress, Giuseppe Zanotti navy pointed toe pumps, a furry clutched sized purse by Dior and sunglasses a la Westward Leaning.
Always in style, Olivia nailed the of-the-moment mixed fabric trend. We at Joonbug, love, love, love!
We love sunglasses. And parties. And beautiful bubbly entrepreneurs. So when we heard about the opening reception for a new one-of-a-kind eyewear boutique in the Upper East Side founded by the adorable Jaclyn Edelstein, we had to check it out. Ultimate Spectacle, located at 789 Lexington, is the new go-to spot for fashion savvy shoppers looking for high fashion, hard-to-find frames as well as specialized eye care. Not only can you find the hottest new styles, you can also get a comprehensive eye exam onsite, while eyewear experts fit you with ideal frames suited to your facial structure. And they know what they're doing! After glancing at me for a mere 5 seconds, they were able to instantly pick out two frames that fit my face perfectly.
For the city that never sleeps, there is always a fashion celebration going down on the island of Manhattan. From sample sales, to new designer launches, to top of the line fashion shows, New York never fails to provide us fashion hungry individuals with an infinite number of options to fill our agendas. Here is a list of upcoming fashion events that will surely leave you fully booked by the end of the month.
The Pinnacle Day Party Holiday Toy Drive
New Stuart Weitzman Boutique at Bloomingdale’s.
This Fall is all about smoky eyes, thick brows, and bold lips. Don't worry, the colors and styles won't be that overwhelming. Here are our tips on getting the look:
For starters, invest in a very good concealer, foundation, and setting powder. A high quality canvas is key!
- Concealer: Cover up those dark spots. We love this concealer because of it's Matte finish: Make Up Forever's Full Cover Concealer
- Foundation: Blend, blend, blend. No caking please! We love this foundation by Dior because it's long-lasting: DiorSkin Forever Extreme Wear with SPF 25
- Setting Powder: More like, "I'm not going anywhere" powder. We love this finishing powder because it can be worn alone of over your foundation: Makeup Forever HD Microfinish Powder
Remember a few years ago, Christian Dior attempted to have their own "DiorPhone?" Well it somewhat worked. Not really. Christian Dior is back again with the latest Dior mobile phone.
For a luxury branded mobile phone, it is not too shabby! The phone is your everyday chic and sleek touch-screen. The operating system on the phone uses Android. Therefore we can assume the phone has 3G, camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Google Maps.
Here is where the twist comes in, the phone comes in Glamorous Black, Dazzling Red, Pure White, and Shanghai Blue. And it is chiseled with sapphire crystals. You can find the phone at Colette. for €3900 or $5,000USD. Pretty cheap, huh?
WWD has informed us that Marc Jacobs may be stepping in as Dior's new Creative Director; the position has remained un-filled since Galliano was sacked due to allegations that he may have made anti-semantic remarks.
Not only are we anxiously awaiting a confirmation on whether or not Jacobs will actually take the new position, but we are besides ourselves wondering if he will really leave Louis Vuitton?! If both questions are answered with a yes, that means that Phoebe Philo will be the first choice as Jacobs' replacement at LV. However, she will remain at Celine regardless if she takes the new position or not.
Keith Urban, majorly successful country singer and husband of Nicole Kidman, has announced that he is launching Phoenix, his new men's scent, next month. As if his CV weren't impressive enough already.
Last Friday, Urban gave WWD an exclusive interview, where he dished all about his upcoming fragrance. Urban says that he chose the name Phoenix for his scent because that word holds a lot of symbolism and meaning for him. On his left forearm, Urban bares a tattoo of a phoenix, which he uses as a daily reminder that even if one "succumbs to the challenges and burns in the fire" he will eventually rise up even stronger than before.
