a-HEAD of His Time- Karl Lagerfeld

12:33 PM / Posted by Nicole C / comments (1)

*UPDATE* Diane von Furstenberg's spring ROCK GODDESS 09 Collection is now available for pre-order online! Even if you don't plan on spending any money...there are very beautiful looking pieces just to check out...especially her sun dresses!

Karl Largerfeld is the head designer at the house of CHANEL premiered his 2009 Fall collection Tuesday at Paris Fashion Week and the head pieces on the models were amazing. Reportedly they are all made of paper...how resourceful!






Even if we are going through some hard times and don't have the funds to actually buy these clothes, at least fashion always provides some form of artwork for us to look at and admire...

Guilty Pleasure

9:59 PM / Posted by Nicole C / comments (0)

OKAY...so I know it is some rough times going on with the economy and all...and I SWEAR I thought about the recession the whole time I was considering buying these Dolce&Gabbana satin pumps, BUT they were 50% off from the original 415 plus tax price and they had them in MY SIZE...one of only two sizes LEFT! I just had to! I really did! It was meant to be! Definitely very retro chic that can be dressed up or down. Looks great with skinny jeans and a tuxedo blazer OR add UUUMPH to an all black ensemble! =D

The SAG Awards: The Winners

1:23 PM / Posted by Nicole C / comments (0)

The SAG Awards was last night on TBS and it looks like most of the stars got it RIGHT this time around when it came to their gowns...MANY of the HITS decided to wear white and although white has always been kind of bland to me especially on a big red carpet awards show, the gowns were surprisingly very elegant! There were some misses, but not anything so terrible that I should post. So enjoy the night's winner's in the fashion department!

The Best Dressed Ladies....


Evan Rachel Wood stunning in a Monique Lhuillier one shoulder gown! My top best dressed pick!


Anne Hathaway in Azzaro


Viola Davis in a gorgeous yellow canary off shoulder gown



Taraji P. Henson in Herve Leroux...she looked amazing!

More from the best dressed men once I get a chance!

Misses the Bull's Eye: Take one

9:58 PM / Posted by Nicole C / comments (1)





Rihanna at the RIAA'S INAUGURATION BALL. The canary dress is by Jasmine de Milo and studded shoes are from Guiseppe Zanotti. Hmm...there is a little too much fabric going on in the dress which makes her look a bit big around the waist area. And she has a very svelt figure so imagine US NORMAL SIZED girls in the adress like that. We'd just all like look twinkies. I'm not really feeling her hair either...its going back to that 'mushroom' style...ehh. The best looking thing was her earrings and flaw-less make-up. What do you think?

YES WE CAN!

7:05 PM / Posted by Nicole C / comments (0)

So today marks a very important day in history of the US of A. It was the inauguration of the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama! Its really amazing to see how far we've come to have the first black President in office and one that so many people admire when years ago we had racism and segregation of colored people and minorities that existed. We have DEFINITELY come a looong way! So here a photograph of Barack and Michelle Obama and the Inaugural Ball. Michelle looked stunning in all white one shoulder JASON WU GOWN and Barack looked sharp in his tux! More pics when they are available! In the mean time, hope everyone will be watching the INAUGURAL BALL!

POP THE TRUNK

11:38 AM / Posted by Nicole C / comments (1)

*Attention* IMG who is the main sponsor of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week has pulled the plug for LA Fashion Week. It will no longer hold the 5 day event at Smashbox Studios. But Fashion Week in NYC will still be on in February. So unless I have the funds and the time to fly over there to volunteer in the east coast, it looks like there won't be any pictures of exciting news to report if there was an LA Fashion Week =[

But in better news, the Diane von Furstenberg store on Melrose will be having a trunk show for a preview of her spring collection. I remember one of the sales associate said it would be next Wednesday, January the 21st. I'm not sure what time because she said I would be receiving a call so I will update you guys as soon as I can. I have been waiting for her spring collection for MONTHS NOW and it would be great to preview it before it hits actual retail on FEBRUARY 15TH. BUT since I am low on funds and get too excited about the clothes I might just BUY a piece right there and then. So I may consider just waiting until march (my birthday) to buy something. But I would want to go to the trunk show and take pictures if possible to post them and give you guys a preview in person. But it is not until Wednesday so here are some of my favorite looks from her spring collection. Since I've talked a mouthful in this entry I will post bunch of pictures to make up for my blabbing mouth or in this case words. Enjoy!























The Belgian beauty herself...DVF and behind her is the creactive director of the label NATHAN JENDEN

Ahhh....in Rachel Zoe's words "I'D DIE!" and TRUST I've definitely been a fan of DVF way before THE CITY. Hopefully Whitney is actually working A REAL JOB there! Which I know girls would KILL for a position at DVF including me!!!!
Her show will be on Feb. 15 2009 at Bryant Park NYC at the Main Tent
Some of my other favorite designers will be showcasing their fall collection including Philip Lim, J. Mendel, and Zac Posen! I am definitely disappointed I can't make it!
For more DVF Spring Looks check out her site at www.dvf.com or nymag.com

Miu Miu Meeooww

3:11 PM / Posted by Nicole C / comments (1)

Here Katie Holmes is the new 'model' for Miu Miu clothing line. And here are her photos for the campaign. I wouldn't expect Katie Holmes to be the spokesmodel, I've never looked at her as a true FASHION ICON but I guess? She does look very chic in these photos. Stiff, but that it is definitely Miu Miu's signature 'look' in their campaigns and advertisements. These photos is reminiscent of old Roman Time/300 movie type of thing with the backdrop and colors.









In case you have never heard of Miu Miu, it is a diffusion line from Miuccia Prada, head designer and entrepreneur of the famous Italian fashion line Prada. Miu Miu is Miuccia's nickname and it is the "more affordable" line. More affordable as in 500 dollar pair of shoes as opposed to 800 dollars. *blank stare* But Miu Miu does have some very unique looking shoes and handbags...definitely an investment.

The Golden Globes: Hit or Miss

9:55 PM / Posted by Nicole C / comments (0)

The Golden Globes were last night and of course no one was really paying attention to the actual awards...well maybe SOME OF US ;D but everyone was definitely checking out what the stars were wearing.

Below are the HITS of the night (in my opinion)...



Beyonce looked gorgeous in Eli Saab. It wasn't anything out of the ordinary, but she looked really nice nonetheless.


Eva Longoria in Reem Acra (a red carpet favorite). She looked great! Hair, make-up, everything was on point to me! Looks like she got back her petite figure after putting on some pounds for Desperate Housewives.



Megan Fox. I'm not sure where her dress is from and it really isn't all that but just wanted to show how SICK her body is. Her makeup was nice and LIGHT, but man WTHECK is her diet and workout regime?

There was ONLY a couple more HITS in my book last night which included Eva Mendes and Olivia Wilde. The rest were either just "whatever" looking or just nice, but TOO SAFE. And of course there is always the MISSES, which I've posted below

And the ones that totally MISSED THE BULL'S EYE....



Jennifer Lopez in Marchesa. Ummm ok...Usually Marchesa makes some of the most gorgeous gowns. This doesn't even seem like it would fit in with their collection. And this dress definitely reminds of the infamous Versaces dress Jennifer wore to the Grammys back in the day. She looked pretty nice from the head up though...


Taraji P Henson in idk what. If the dress was just in all black and less of the frills it woulda been very nice.

To be honest...there were more MISSES than HITS and a bunch of in betweens. But if you want to check out more check out www.eonline.com

Eva and Ciara

4:25 PM / Posted by Nicole C / comments (1)

So the Critics Choice Awards were last night and Eva Longoria rocked the Monique Lhuillier dress that I posted on the last blog. Here she is...did she do the dress any justice?






I LIKE the dress on her, but something is definitely missing to me. She didn't totally rock the H E DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS out of it. But she looks nice. Maybe it was the makeup and hair?




AND at the NOTORIOUS Movie Premiere Ciara looked FERR-O-CIOUSSS in her all black leather ensemble. She added even more fierrrceness with the leopard mary-jane CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTINS! What do you think?
