Gwyneth Paltrow - "Boss Nuit" Madrid Photocall

I was hoping to see Gwyneth on the red carpet as I miss her head-to-toe perfect event-like style.
So you can image how excited I was to catch Gwyneth promoting Boss Nuit scent in Madrid.
You can't go wrong  wearing a classy black  Hugo Boss dress, especially with the leather one:)
Love how she kept it simple by adding just a pair of chic pumps!
Classy Gwyneth:)

Top 4 Fall/Winter 2012.2013 Coat Trends

 As the weather gets cooler, it is a perfect time to take out of a closet coat.
The thing about this piece of clothing  is that it had to be both perfectly fitting so that you would look chic and  make you feel warm and comfy.
There are four main trends this season:

1. Military - perfect for both tomboy kind of girls as well as those stricktly girly. Wear it with fierce and boots and a belt and you will look drop dead gorgeous:) Found a gorgeous one in Zara, picture below:)

2. Cocoon - this is a tricky one. You complete the whole look depending on you height. If you are tall you can easily wear it with a flat shoes (ballet, or loafers), if not high heels/boots necessary:)

3. School Girl - Loving Oxford-like look? You just need a chic woolen coat, loafers and a fedora - and than back to school:)

4. Tweed -very classy, very chic, very Chanel...

Cameron Diaz - Rag&Bone Los Angeles Store Opening

Write now as I'm writing this post it is snowing here in Poland (yes SNOWING!),  so to see Cameron wearing  this summerish look makes me wanna  cry (of jealousy of course:)).
Totally love the short-sleeved printed dress that she wore for the opening of a brand new Rag&Bone Los Angeles store - it makes her look so young and fresh:)
The way she added those cowboy boots and a classy tote was just a perfect way to finish the whole look:)

Matthew Williamson's Anniversary Film

FASHION dreams do come true - just ask Matthew Williamson, who celebrated 15 years in the industry this year and made a short film to commemorate the event.
"It's about the dreams of my 15-year-old self imagining this ethereal universe full of beautiful girls in these amazing dresses," explains the designer who enlisted the help of friends Sienna MillerPoppy Delevingne and Valentine Fillol Cordier to make it. "I was also really thrilled to work with the amazing Andrea Riseborough too who plays my mum."
While Riseborough makes for a great cameo, don't expect to see her in this on the big screen - it's a small screen celebration in conjunction with Swarovksi and Net-A-Porter, which is where you can catch it next week when it launches online.
So, dreamy dresses aside, what advice stands out over the past 15 years and what he might tell his 15-year-old self now?
"Confidence and belief in yourself and your vision is absolutely paramount. The fashion industry is tough - be prepared to take advice and criticism along the way, but have unwavering belief in your vision," says Williamson.
And what's up for the big 2-0 when that hits?
"This is the next incredibly exciting time for the brand and we hope to take it to the next level. So ideally the big 2-0 will be bigger and better. I'm looking forward to now adding new layers to the DNA of our brand as we begin the next chapter in our story," he says. 
P.S. What a brilliant idea!! I find Matthew a very talented designer and so I'm extremely excited for the project:)

Kristen Stewart - "Breaking Dawn Part 2" Tokyo Fan Event

A much as I do not like her personality and her casual style, I think Kristen's stylist is making an amazing job as for the red carpet/ event looks.
I so wished to see someone rocking some look from Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2012 RTW Collection and here it is!
The checkerboard playsuit looked amazing on Kristen and you can see that she felt comfortable in it.
The whole look was completed with a pair of edgy Brian Atwood sandals and a classic Cartier bracelet.
I'm very curious for the rest of the looks during promo tour of "Breaking Dawn Part 2" - so far so good:)

Vogue Netherlands November 2012 - Anna De Rijk

Ever since the first issue of Vogue Netherlands came out, there wasn't any issue that I would hate.
There is something about scandinavian models that make them so special!:)
Anna looks lovely in this Victorian-like lace blouse which was accessorised with an oversized emerald necklace.
Love the way the whole look was completed with this sexy red lipstick and smoky make-up  - so sophisticated!:)

Rice Paper Boots By Sergio Rossi

SERGIO ROSSI has collaborated with Chinese artist Peng Wei on a collection of boots made out of rice paper. Not designed to be worn, the pieces pay homage to one of China's time-honoured art forms.
Taking the designer's signature Chelsea boot as a starting point, Wei has created eight unique designs - all hand-painted with traditional Chinese symbols and patterns. The artworks will be on display in the Sergio Rossi Paris boutique from today until October 21 to coincide with the FIAC - Foire Internationale d'Art Contemporain -  Paris' annual contemporary art festival.
The store is celebrating the artistic collaboration with an in-store cocktail reception tonight, hosted by Wei; Francesco Russo, creative director or Sergio Rossi; and Christophe Melard, Sergio Rossi's CEO and President.
Sergio Rossi's Paris store can be found on Rue du Faubourg Sant Honore. Click through the gallery on the left for a preview.

P.S. Most definately a piece of art!:)

Vogue US November 2012 - "Night Moves" by Craig McDean

I was just browsing through the November issue of American Vogue when this very editorial entitled "Night Moves" caught my attention.
The photoshoot featuring models such as:Karlie Kloss,Arizona Muse, Daria Strokaus or Xio Wen gave me many inspirations toward evening wear.
There is this cute pink Valentino ensemble ideal for not so official art festival, mini 60's inspired embellished dresses by Gucci ( perfect pick for a boutique opening), sassy sequined Nina Ricci coat which along with some rockish accessories would be a great look for a music festival or the very futuristic-like ruffled Balenciaga ballet dress.

Victoria Beckham For Elle France

Back in July, Karl Lagerfeld photographed Victoria Beckham and her flawless figure in Coco Chanel’s apartment for an Elle France cover. Beckham tweeted behind the scenes photos from the shoot then, not because she was bragging, but because she was genuinely just as excited as anyone would be to be in Coco Chanel’s apartment being photographed by Karl Lagerfeld.
That she couldn’t wait to share the final result is just as endearing, if not also a bit jealousy-inducing. She looks pretty amazing as she shows off her perfect stems in two chic pants-less looks on that famous spiral staircase. “First pictures from my @ELLEfrance cover shoot with Karl Lagerfeld, a dream come true! X VB” she wrote. In one of the two black and white images she Tweeted today, she’s even accompanied by Lagerfeld, whose face seems to have been subject to some fairly aggressive photoshopping.
P.S Can't  wait to see the whole photoshoot!:)

Sarah Jessica Parker - Elle Women In Hollywood Celebration

I may not be a devoted "Sex And The City" fan but I do love Sarah Jessica Parker - both as an actress and style muse.
Her ensemble choices are often compared to those of Carrie Bradshaw (no wonder as this character will always remain in the history of fashion) but this dress is far from one which we would see the New York socialite it.
It is a pure simplicity and chic that I so admire about this greyish strapless dress from Calvin Klein Spring 2013 Collection.
 It fits Sarah perfectly making her look incredibly sassy, sophisticated and sexy!
As for the rest of the look - just a pair of classy  pumps,minimal jewellery (gorgeous emerald  ring hard not to notice) and sleeked hair- it was just perfect!:)

Vogue Paris November 2013 - Lauren Hutton,Stephanie Seymour and Daria Werbowy by Inez & Vinoodh

I have just one word to descrobe this cover - flawless!!
Totally admire the simplicity of it, this minimal 90's styling with each model wearing just a classy white shirt with jeans.
Each model represents different age group but they all look equally amazing !:)
 P.S. I have to mention that I love Daria in shorter hair!:) It makes her look even more young!

Rosie Huntington Whiteley - Chateau Marmont Visit

As much as I'm not a big fan of fur, I really like this striped jacket on Rosie.

All together a very rockish glam look.
How not to love model's street style?:)

Alexa Chung - 80th Anniversary Of The "Bijoux De Diamants"

As much as I love both Blake Lively and Diane Kruger (who also attended the event), I think Alexa was the one that shined!
She looked fabolous in a white A-line dress with floral embelishments from Chanel's memorable " Resort 2013 Collection.
Alexa kept the whole look simple by adding a pair of cute silver pumps and matching earings.

What a fabolous cover!!!
Emily looks beyond gorgeous in a very intimate picture taken for Australian issue of Harper's Bazaar.
The way it captures  this amazing smokey make-up and sleeked hair - just gah!!
Since I saw for the first time "The Devil Wears Prada" featuring Emily as the memorable assistant of Miranda Priestly I immediately fell in love her! Witty,smart and beautiful - she was a perfect model choice for the cover:)

Dior's Jacketdress

RAF SIMONS is finding it "difficult to define" one of the most important items from his debut Dior ready-to-wear collection - the jacketdress. If you're not sure what that is yet, the creative director is trying his best to help.
"It's kind of like a new jacket, one could say, or it's kind of like a jacket-dress, or is it a dress, or is it a jacket-coat? One cannot really say it," he said. "And I have a lot of reaction backstage on that, because they all find it new, and they want to define it, but you can't define it, and that was exactly my aim - to try to find a new piece for the house. If it needs to be defined, I like the word jacketdress, but it's one piece. I offer the freedom to wear it as a dress, without any other piece, but you can as well wear it with long pants or shorts or a long skirt or short skirt - so then you create a deux pièces look."
The jacketdress appeared in many forms on the label's Paris catwalk earlier this week; in slim-fitting double-breasted styles; in white with flared skirts; and single-breasted with shimmering pleats. We can expect to see the easy-to-wear piece in plenty future Dior collections.
"I think it's a very interesting item to build on in the future for this house - to create a code and to create a kind of aesthetic that will be recognisable in the streets," Simons explained. "I really wanted them all like jackets so they closein the front and you easily take it [off] and on, and you can also wear them open. There was a new look I think."
P.S. Another new word to a fashion dictionary:)

I'm so glad that despite the Fall season there are still several editions of Vogue that serve a very vibrant and summerish styling.
This is the thing with Australian issue of the magazine which feature its native model Catherine McNeil wearing a fabolous baby pink Chanel jacket worn over a sexy white bikini.

Alexa To Write A Book

 Want to dress like Alexa? Soon you'll be able to get the lowdown on how to do just that - and from the woman herself. The model, presenter, style icon and ELLE cover girl is due to augment her already lengthy CV with the announcement that she is planning to write a yet-to-be-titled book.
We’re told it will feature writing, drawings and photographs – and – yes! – tips on getting dressed as well as details of Alexa’s own style influences, personal pictures and fashion tips. 
Having been voted the winner of the British Style Award by the public two years in a row at the British Fashion Awards, and nominated for a third time this year, it's clear that Alexa remains our favourite fashion inspiration, and the army of Alexa fans who can’t get enough of her stylish tomboy outfits will be flocking to buy the book. 
Sadly we still have almost a year to wait – the book will be released next September. Eleven months. Forty-eight weeks. Three-hundred and thirty-seven days… 

P.S. I'm so going to buy this book!!:)

Poppy Delevigne - Chanel S/S 2013 RTW Fashion Show

I so missed Poppy's street style during Paris Fashion Week!
Who does not love the way she is mixing new trends with classics?!
I mean common!
Just look at the way she combined classy tweet cardi with the edgy tweed-detailed shorts and accessorised it with so fallish maroon fedora and a pair of studded suede boots - amazing isn't it?
The whole look was completed with her always glowing blond locks and a simple natural make-up.
