Looking for the dream wedding look? Look no further. Here are the cutting edge looks for 2013, off the runways.Elie Saab designed a confectionery collection of regal lacy dresses that would suit a princess in Spain. There were also pastels that could deck out Mia Farrow circa 1968. Frankly, it was ephemeral and beautiful. They weren't hippie though. The dresses were well bred and grown up. You won't have to worry about looking immature at your own bash. The gowns glowed with his virtuoso design and fitted the models perfectly. Christopher Josse went the restricted route, with somewhat controlled sleeveless gowns that need only a simple headband to decorate with. George Chakra sent a model down the runway with a veil covered in frothy white lace pieces. Jennifer Lawrence recently shocked in her short Dior veil and hat, similar to the looks he sent down the runway at his bold wedding collection.
Just when you thought models and musicians could finally have a happily-ever-after aside from David Bowie & Iman...tsk tsk.
One of the entertainment industry's most beautiful couples have called it quits after two years of dating. Maroon 5 frontman & The Voice judge Adam Levine, 33, and 8-time Sports Illustrated and Victoria's Secret model Anne Vyalitsyna, 26, have split according to her rep confirming with People magazine.
The solution to Adam's break-up blues? Perhaps a little rebound with another Anne...a writer of some sorts, with lots of witty pop culture commentary experience & talent...alright, never mind.
After a full-fledged week of fashion, we were inspired to recognize those who put it all together. What we like to call "The Magicians of Fashion." It sounds fun, but styling is no easy task. In fact, it's an art form. Some can style themselves at the snap of a finger, and others require a little help. Consider this a shout out to all of those stylists who have put together memorable looks, grew from nothing to some of the best in the biz, and even had an influence on trends heard around the world.
The first is Rachel Zoe. We know, no-brainer, right? This fashionista is most well-known for her celeb clientele and her passion for costume jewelry, boho-chic style, and large and in charge dark shades. She has become an inspiration to many where her background lies in New Jersey and her success in the limelight of L.A. With no formal training in styling, she has shown us that anything is possible when you have the drive and hard work in your grasp!
The Carrie Bradshaw fairytale has come to an end. Author, Candace Bushnell, 53, famous for Sex and the City, has filed for divorce from her husband Charles Askegard, 43, after 9 years of marriage. This is probably pretty disappointing news for all the Sex and the City fans who dream of worldwide success and finding love forever with their perfect "Mr. Big" in NYC.
We wonder if Carrie Bradshaw will follow suit in a dramatized 3rd movie installment of Sex and the City? Plot: Carrie files divorce from Big and goes to India to "find herself." In the end, she realizes that love is for suckers, buys 20 pairs of Manolo Blahnik's and drowns her sorrows in a sea of cosmopolitans while listening to Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" on repeat. Ugh, that sounds worse than the 2nd one.
Anyway, Candace is still pretty hot and ridiculously successful, so we're sure she'll be just fine.
When Marilyn Monroe danced across movie screens and proclaimed “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend!”, it was one of the most iconic moments in cinema history. The song became a highlight not only for Marilyn’s career, but for many of the jeweler’s mentioned. They garnered mainstream attention --and with good reason. Finally, women had a counterpart to the oft-repeated “dog is man’s best friend." Who needs to play fetch when you could play dress up?
Laying claim to one of the largest diamonds ever discovered, the Tiffany Yellow Diamond, the company set the bar high for excellence in jewelry design early on. At 287.42 carats in the rough, 128.54 carats with 90 facets after it was cut, the massive rock has only been known to have been worn twice since its 1878 discovery in South Africa (one of those women was, of course, Audrey Hepburn while promoting Breakfast at Tiffany’s).
Although Jimmy Choo has been designing and making shoes for over three decades now, the iconic brand, co-founded with British Vogue accessories editor Tamara Mellon, wasn't officially started until 1996. In honor of the its past 15 years, Jimmy Choo Ltd held an exhibition featuring 15 of its best selling shoe designs in a pop-up store inside Paris retailer Le Bon Marché.
The exhibit, which opened Wednesday, has the vintage shoe designs on display safely in glass cases. In addition to the 15 commemorated designs, customers can also view a capsule collection dubbed "Icons" that was inspired by the vintage pieces. "Icons" includes famous designs like the Sex and the City "Feather" shoe that Carrie famously lost in an early episode, and ‘Fleur’, a pair of striped heels Tamara Mellon wore when she met the queen. Customers will also be able to flip through electronic copies of the commemorative book "Jimmy Choo XV," that tells the companies history through the featured 15 on iPads.
The pop-up exhibit will be available for viewing until December 31st this year.
Rumors have been swirling that a Sex and the City prequel might be in the works.
But now, Michael Patrick King, who directed the four ladies in the two S&TC blockbusters, and who was an executive producer on the HBO series, has put the rumors to rest.
He told reporters during the Television Critics Association press tour, “My Carrie started at 33, and I took her to 43. I didn’t even want to know who her parents were. The idea of going back in time…and making her less evolved — the idea of going backward — is not something I’m interested in doing.”
Could it be? Imagine how Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte, & Samantha were in their high-school/college years?
Mum's the word on a possible reboot of the Sex & the City franchise. Rumors and talks have been going on (for what seems like forever) of a new film, but this time, it will supposedly serve as a flashback piece that documents the early days of our favorite NYC ladies. The alleged plotlines would come from the prequel novels of writer/creator Candace Bushnell: "The Carrie Diaries," and "Summer in the City."
Blessed with a whirlwind movie career, an unbelievable business swagger, and a sense of style so iconic she'll go down in fashion history among the likes of Coco Chanel and Jackie O, Sarah Jessica Parker can do it all. An accomplished actress from a young age, Parker is best known for her role as "Carrie Bradshaw" on Sex and the City, the hit TV series turned movie sequel, where she also served as executive producer.
Former president and chief creative officer for Halston Heritage (reports just surfaced that she will no longer be associated with the company), Golden Globe winner, Emmy winner, UNICEF representative, and former Gap spokeswoman make up a mere fraction of her credentials list. She also has a fragrance brand that grosses seven-figures a year as well as a clothing brand. If that weren't enough, Monolo Blahnik has named a shoe after her, the SJP.
