Well.. she’s done it again! What was I saying about the girly looks on Jessica Biel? Showing up at the premiere of Total Recall in New York, Jessica wore a white lace dress from Elie Saab (the Spring 2012 Couture collection).
(although I admit it way prettier than that pink-ish Dior thing and clearly more tastefully accessorized than with the white shoes at the previously discussed Red Carpet event) I just have a message for Justin Timberlake (Jessica’s famous fiancé): marry the girl already! So we can all move on and get so some serious dresses, other than these bridal thingies!

Just as we thought the United Kingdom couldn’t get anymore patriotic we’ve been hit by Topshop’s latest ‘Topshop for Opening Ceremony’ collection. The collaboration with US brand ‘Opening Ceremony’ couldn’t have arrived at a more perfect time, as we ourselves have begun to wave our British flag in support of Team GB for the London 2012 Olympics.
We’re absolutely loving the red, white and blue theme and shall be picking up a few key pieces ourselves to integrate into our wardrobes. This limited edition collection features items that will not only act as your new “go-to” pieces, but are sure to create a statement with their fresh, modern cuts and simplistic shapes. Sticking to the sport luxe Spring/Summer trend, you can’t go wrong with this sporty, minimal collection.
Looking for that crisp white dress or retro crop top, this is where to turn to find your next wardrobe essential as Topshop embraces the next few Olympic filled weeks with their zip detailing and use of neoprene to keep the clothing cool and sporty. Stay patriotic with a piece from this limited edition collection and don’t say we told you so!
This is the first of three F/W 12 videos from Silver Jeans Co. This F/W 12 video is a behind the scenes look at the ad campaign shoot, done in Topanga Canyon, California. The F/W’12 campaign shoot also welcomes a new friend into the Silver Jeans Co. family, Annelise Adams from The CW’s hit show, Remodeled!!
Didn’t see much of the jeans here, but what really called my attention was that the photographers seem to be models. Or are they models that also are photographers?! A video full of beautiful people and jeans – I am so curious about the other videos, Silver!
Along with mosquitos and not being able to find a rental car in NYC on summer weekends, being sweaty is one of the unpleasant side effects of what is generally a very agreeable season. Sweatiness can then of course lead to stinkiness, which then leads to talking behind your co-worker’s back about how ripe s/he is, which is ultimately quite horrible for morale and teamwork. Instead of lighting incense at your desk and hoping your offensive colleague doesn’t stop by for a chat, a natural beauty company has a kinder solution: the Deodorgram.
G.B. Proudfoot [Ed. note: Fantastic hobbit name.] is an Arizona-based natural beauty products company that’s been around for about three years. One of the founders, Cam Proudfoot, took several years to develop the line’s “natural” deodorant (which he tested on rugby players in Arizona–that must have been a stinky bunch), called “For Pit’s Sake!” So right there it’s obvious that the Proudfoots (Proudfeet?) have a sense of humor.
He told us his challenge was getting people to try it, since a lot of people are skeptical of so-called natural deodorants. “Everyone assumes that if it’s natural it doesn’t work,” he said. “No one wants to stink.” Indeed. But what about those who stink and don’t seem to realize it?
Let’s get away from fashion news. Somewhat… Are you with me? Let’s enrich the weekend’s menu (you know, I was trying to take it in the family & such zone) with some gossip. Stylish gossip, biensur!
Kate Beckinsale is doing the inauguration honors for that gossip thingie with her amazing sneak –y Armani Prive dress (Spring 2012 Couture) from the Total Recall premiere. As I can’t wait to see the movie that premiered on August 1st in Hollywood, let’s judge Kate Beckinsale’s fashion move on the premiere’s Red Carpet. (don’t be surprised if I won’t criticize her, Kate is one of my favorite actresses and style – wise she’s always been consistent and coherent with her looks) – cast your vote after the picture!
In some parts of the country, summer can bring triple-digit heat. With sweltering temperatures and frizz-inducing humidity, what’s a fashion-forward college student to do to stay stylish and comfortable?
I spotted Daria walking in Memphis, beating the heat with her eye-catching dress from the Urban Outfitters sale rack. Daria’s effortless and cool style is what first caught my interest, but it’s the unique details of her outfit that make her look truly special. Meet Daria, fashion-savvy bargain-hunter extraordinaire, hairdo wizard, and pretty southern belle!
