Spring/Summer Ad Campaigns 2012

It's the time of year again when the ad campaigns slowly get leaked out and I slowly wait to see who is getting shot and where. I could not wait to see Valentino's because I knew the red dresses would be flaunted. So of course I had to put that first. Ad campaigns to me are all about the wait the models are posed. I love seeing the geometric shapes within the bodies to see how the clothes are presented. I absolutely love the Versace campaign with Gisele, the colors all work magnificently together. So here are some previews, and you know as soon as more Valentino shots get released I'll be sure to post...

Ahh I have literally been waiting for the first one! Bette Franke, Maud Welzen, Fei Fei Sun, Zuzanna Bijoch, posed for the Valentino Spring/Summer 2012 Ad campaign shot in Pozos, Mexico!

Vogue Timeline with Amber Valletta and Shalom Harlow

It has almost been a decade since that two have been shown together in Vogue, and to celebrate I wanted to show you a flashback of what the two best friends have done for Vogue.

In February 1993 the two did spreads photographed by Arthur Elgort

In September 1995 they took the cover to show what was new for fall fashion

In March 1997 they appeared again to show the hot new spring fashion

In April 1997 the two joined Carolyn Murphy 

In 2011 at age 38 and 37 (Amber), they make a comeback to show the multidimensional female persona through New York designers. Photographed by Stephan Klein

Doing Sequins the Right Way For NYE

With New Years Eve partying coming up I know everyone is searching for the right wear. Whether you're going out clubbing or going to a work party, there is always a level of sequins that can be right for you.
Nasty Gal Caged Sequin Dress $64
Add some beautiful bangles and some nude pumps for a more elegant 
My favorite~Wasteland Sequin Night Stalker Jacket $82
*Put on a sexy low cut black dress under and some pumps and you got the Rock Star look I adore 

Thread Sence Time Square Sequin Mini Dress $54
Shoes (LOVE) Bacio 61 $160
This is definitely more risky, club attire
I DON'T like those heels she's wearing but the dress is sexy and sophisticated all at the same time...

RED is the new BLACK

This winter I can't help but notice that red is everywhere... and not just for the holidays. I actually have never been a huge fan of reds but it is strangely growing on me. A lot of people say they have a hard time making red look good on them (myself included) so here are some different look to go with
 A slight touch of red lipstick or nail polish...

Ready to go bold with red on red?
Crocheted red sweater for a day in the office...
Or my favorite red lip and red shoe...

Young Olsen on the Rise

I can honestly say 5 years ago I didn't even know the Olsen twins had a younger sister, and now I am seeing Elizabeth everywhere making a name for herself. She never steps out into public without a jaw dropping outfit on! At 22 years old she has grown into a woman and is a huge icon in the fashion industry.
In McQueen! At the New York Film Festival in October... LOVE

Chloe Grace Moretz on Teen Vogue Cover

It is always weird to see the young Hollywood stars start to grow up, but taking on Teen Vogue's cover is nothing less than a huge step. The last film I saw her in was 500 Days of Summer (which is one of my favorite movies) and she was just absolute adorable. But taking a look at these pictures you can see at 14 she certainly is growing up.

Starting November 19th, Versace will finally have their line in select H&M stores! I previously posted about my excitement for this and just to my expectations there are some really great pieces.

Here are some dresses that have great cuts that I love!

Nicki Minaj on the Cover of W Magazine

On the most recent issue for W magazine Nicki Minaj was the cover story. I was shocked but I think it was a great pick! It was the art and fashion issue, hence the 18th century portrait look that Francesco Vezzoli created. They dressed her in Christian Dior Haute Couture, Vera Wang, and dress from the Western Costume Company! So go ahead and take a look...
