White is the New Black
What do you wear when you have nothing to wear? The go-to, monochromatic, sartorial fallback of an all black look, of course. This season, designers (literally, almost all of them) have presented a “brighter” option for our old monochromatic standby, showing head to toe winter-ready white in the form of chic eveningwear, tailored pantsuits and everything in between. Lyn Devon goes super sweet and retro chic with a modest angora sweater and tea-length duchesse satin skirt. Cushnie et Ochs offer winter white separates as sleek tailored trousers paired with a sheer collared top make the trend as seductive as their curve-hugging dresses. Alexander Wang doesn’t disappoint with his edgy twist, detailed with pearlescent fringe and black fishnet stockings.
Baby Harper Seven has embarked on a memorable milestone. She is finally beginning to take her first steps but not without the help of her fashionista mother Victoria Beckham.
Mother and daughter were out recently in Dublin to promote and reveal Beckham's fall line at department store Brown Thomas.
The little fashionista in training looked thrilled to be making her first strut in public.
We're sure she'll be just as fashion forward as her mother!
The soccer-star, underwear designer/model and all-around style icon can now add history-making cover model to his fashionable resume. Last week, Beckham made history when posing before the lens for his cover shoot for the British Elle July Issue in Los Angeles; marking the first time in which a male will appear solo for a women’s glossy magazine.
It comes as no surprise that the British magazine and star have partnered for the milestone in fashion magazine and editorial history. 2012 marks an exciting time for the nation as all eyes will be on the city of London as it hosts the 30th Summer Olympic Games. Beckham, the true embodiment of UK style stardom and athleticism, seems quite the natural choice for the groundbreaking issue.
Elle UK Editor-In-Chief Lorraine Candy released the statement adding, “ David Beckham is a national hero, so we saw an opportunity to shoot a celebratory cover to support a historical and patriotic year...He is an icon and ELLE is known for featuring icons on its cover. This is a first for us on the newsstand and I believe he is loved by men and women alike.”
The 36-year-old Beckham has had plenty of experience flexing his muscles, both on the soccer field and in front of cameras, appearing on the covers of Vanity Fair, GQ, Arena, various editions of Men's Health, Wall Street Journal Magazine, and even W magazine with wife Victoria, to name a few. The former Manchester United and LA Galaxy star has also been featured in Emporio Armani and recently H&M underwear campaigns, but this issue, set to appear on newsstands May 30th will mark the first time in which a male will appear solo for a women's magazine cover.
We’ve all been there...one (ahem!)...a few too many after-work cocktails, exceptionally raucous neighbors, work deadlines that are forcing you to burn the midnight oil, or maybe you’ve fallen victim to the latest cold strain running rampant through the office.
No time (or energy) to wash your hair? Use a little dry shampoo to refresh your locks, banish excess oil and add volume. Whether you throw your hair back into a high ponytail, or quickly take a curling iron to a few random sections, (the more haphazard, the better) voila - the effect is instant glamour girl! We suggest you try:
Starting this September, get ready for The Bajan beauty and fashionista, Rihanna to hit a magazine stand near you. Emporio Armani has tapped Rihanna to front the fall-winter 2011-2012 Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans ad campaigns.
Rihanna is replacing actress Megan Fox, who was the spokes model for Armani for one season. The fashion line has worked with Victoria and David Beckham, and also Cristiano Ronaldo in the past. The singer was shot on location in New York by Steven Klein and the campaign will launch in September worldwide.
Rihanna has impeccable style, Armani made the right choice! We cant wait to see how the ads come out. We're sure they will be FIERCE!
A boy for a Betty and a girl for a Veronica!
(Alright, if you don't understand that Archie comics reference, may this editor suggest you pick up an issue and squeeze it into your nostalgic childhood list. But I digress.)
This past weekend has proved to be a memorable one for the two lovely ladies. Perhaps the brief but fabulous visit from Prince William and Kate Middleton to Hollywood was a good luck charm for everyone. Or maybe the babies just wanted to get a glimpse of the royal couple as well! Royal couple fever + baby fever = cue the oohs, the aahs, and most importantly - the awwwws.
Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham certainly hasn’t lost her posh sense of style. Expecting her fourth child soon with soccer star David Beckham, Victoria prepares to expand her clothing empire as well as her family. Victoria by Victoria Beckham, her second clothing line, will be available in stores in spring 2012 and will be slightly more affordable for fashion mavens, ranging from $500-$900. Still not a bargain by any means, the collection is a bit of a break on the wallet from the original Victoria Beckham collection, costing around $1,400 for one of her signature hip hugging dresses.
Tattoos have become over the years a way to express ourselves. Big, small, on the ankle or on the back, possibilities are almost infinite. But many celebrities seem to prefer one kind of tattoos. The ones with inspirational sayings. Because yes, sometimes, even celebrities need a few words of inspiration...
