My favorite photo from miss kerr's amazing shoot with vogue italia!
Kate Moss is a fabulous model who knows fashion well. But designing is quite a different field. Even if Kate has tried hard and her collection sell well that doesn’t mean this will last forever. Unlike real fashion designers Kate couldn’t have enough inspiration for all that work she wanted to do. And now, after 14 collections for the high street store, Kate Moss loses her job with Topshop.
Miss Moore's ads have been officially banned in Venice, Italy. The Bulgari ads, featuring a naked Moore covered in animals and strategically placed items have been taken down and have been deemed offensive.
Style bloggers hearts’ have been all aflutter today over the announcement of Brian Atwood’s diffusion line with the Jones Apparel Group, which will be available next fall. But no one seems to be concerned that the shoes might cost too much money.
The collection, which will be called B Brian Atwood, features shoes priced between $200 and $400, and its boots start at $600. It’s a lot less expensive than Atwood’s self-branded collection, whose shoes go for over $500 and whose boots can cost as much as $1,600.
But the lower-priced shoes still aren’t low-priced enough to make much of a difference for women who couldn’t afford Brian Atwood shoes to begin with, which is what we thought was the point of a diffusion line. When Jimmy Choo made a diffusion collection for H&M last year, it only charged between $60 and $200 for those shoes. At full price, Choos normally run between $350 and $900.
So I have to ask: Who is this diffusion collection being made for? Because what’s happening is the same company that makes $90 platform heels for Nine West is offering $350 pumps of a similar quality. And in doing that, Brian Atwood isn’t really opening up its brand to anyone who can’t afford it now, and it’s not enticing the women who already know about it and can afford it to spend a little less for the same sparkling brand name. Really — why would they? If the brand and its backer really want to spread the Brian Atwood name around, they’ll find a way to make these shoes cost less before they show up in stores.
Rolling Stone — arbiter of all that is cool and, in all likelihood, naked – shot the cast of AMC’s “Mad Men” for their special television issue. The cover image, which features Elisabeth Moss, January Jones, Jon Hamm, and Christina Hendricks, would be amazing if it didn’t have so many post-photoshopping flaws.
LOVE IT OR HATE IT, MISS JANUARY JONES ROCKED THIS DRESS!! (HER POOR HAIR NEEDED SOME HELP THOUGH)
HER NAVY GOWN WAS AS SPECTACULAR AS HER GLEEFUL VOICE
Little bit of sex, little bit of lace, lots of beauty!
Definitely not a plain Jane---navy did well on the carpet this year!
Doogie Did Dapper!

Mary-Louise Parker isn’t America’s sweetheart. She isn’t Julia Roberts or Drew Barrymore. She isn’t bubbly and effusive and adorable. She’s rough around the edges and a little surly, the kind of woman who could probably handle herself in a bar fight. (A real bar fight, not the movie kind with breakaway bottles.) And she isn’t just like that in real life. On her Showtime series Weeds – currently in its sixth season, which you can watch on HBO – she plays a widow named Nancy Botwin who sells marijuana to support her family and is involved in a messy relationship with a Mexican drug lord who shares her enthusiasm for rough sex. It’s a role she reportedly took over a plum gig on Desperate Housewives (which eventually went to Teri Hatcher), choosing Weeds because, in her words, “it was uglier.” Mary-Louise Parker is one of my favorite actresses and this show is revolutionary. Words cannot describe my loyalty to this show & how sad I will be when the last epsiode debuts someday. The photograph above is taken from H Magazine...and it's amazing!
One of my favorite editorial photography images...she was a wondeful photographer!
Bye-bye brunette! After eight months of rocking raven locks, Nicole Richie took to Twitter yesterday to share a totally new look. Tweeting, “Let’s Do A Makeover!”, the star shared this self-portrait twitpic of her new honey blonde, tousled bob. Never one to shy from changing up her style, Nicole regularly shifts from red carpet elegance to boho cool. And when it comes to trying out new hair colors, she’s always taken a laid-back approach, joking in December, “I feel smarter already,” when she traded blonde for brunette
Corinne Day, the British fashion photographer who is largely credited with launching Kate Moss’s career, is rumored to have died, according to Racked, Elite London and other blogs.
Day has been battling a brain tumor since late last year. Vogue UK reported in February that treatment for it was unsuccessful, and that the Victoria and Albert Museum was planning a retrospective of her work.
Day, who taught herself photography, is best known for her impact on the fashion industry in the early 1990s. She photographed Kate Moss’s first cover of British Vogue, and her image are considerably more documentary and biographical than the highly produced images that other photographers created. The style eventually earned the name grunge.
Until recently, Day had been an active photographer. Her work appeared in Italian, Japanese and British Vogue and has been exhibited at the Tate Modern, the Saatchi Gallery and the Whitney Museum
Buela the mannequin’s LOVE cover comes as surprise to me. Frankly speaking I don’t know who she is, if she is a living person or just a doll. But the photo looks nice anyway.
It's been a grey, long kind of day so far for me today, so a huge and crazy splash of color is exactly what I want now to improve my mood. And it seems that Lara Stone and her photoshoot for W Magazine September 2010 issue named Color Me Beautiful is the best to serve the purpose.
Pleasant news for us, fashionistas! LBD abbreviation has been included into the latest edition of Oxford English Dictionary. LBD, that means Little Black Dress, has been known and used for long in the fashion incdustry and now it has become official for everyone else in the world.
LBD is an item that each of us owns because it is a fashion staple, something that we can wear at almost any event, something that will be in vogue forever.
It is surprising to see a plus-size model Crystal Renn in an ad campaign for Chanel after infamous Karl Lagerfeld’s statement that fashion doesn’t want curvy women. But as it turns out Karl had to eat his words and go a safer way by photographing Crystal for the label’s grand reopening on Spring Street this September 2010.
Of course this is not the Chanel Fall/ Winter 2010/ 2011 Campaign but it is a big step towards making fashion good for everyone. Nevertheless, Karl didn’t go far and Crystal Renn is only shot from her shoulders up. By contrast her male partner in the ad, Baptiste Giabriconi, is shown with his beautiful torso clearly visible.
Still it is a great victory for Crystal!!!
Fashion world is usually associated with glamour and skinny anorexic girls. But time passes and views change. Now curvy women like Crystal Renn, Beyonce and Lara Stone are fighting for the right to be named fashion icons. And they do have success because womanly curves are so attractive. Christina Hendricks isn’t from vogue industry but just like any real woman she loves beautiful clothes. This explains why she stars in Fall 2010 Ad Campaign of London Fog.
London Fog is the world-known U.S. rainwear label that has been producing waterproof garments for over 87 years. To promote their Fall 2010 collection they invited Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks who seems to be the embodiment of beauty and femininity. The choice of the model for the campaign can be explained by the fact the brand has embraced the retro image this seaon. And who can do retro better than Christina Hendricks?
Christina Hendricks follows in the footsteps of Gisele Bundchen who was the face of London Fog last year but she definitely pictured a different image.
On the photographs Christina Hendricks looks perfect – so stylish, pretty and luxurious. Behind-the-scenes pictures show how her make-up and the beehive-style up-do were created.
What I like Emma Watson for is that she doesn’t take everything for granted. She understands that she has to pay back. And she does. Even now when her new collection for People Tree fashion line has been launched she doesn’t want to enjoy resting on her laurels. Instead, she goes to Bangladesh to visit those people who produce the clothing she promotes.
Emma Watson doesn’t say she designed People Tree Fall 2010 collection. She participated in choosing the Fair Trade textiles used including cable knits and the first Fair Trade hand-woven brushed check. And now she does her best to make the range popular with customers. With this purpose in mind Emma posed for a number of photos for People Tree Ad Campaign. Looking pretty and stylish, Emma is wearing pieces from the Fall 2010 collection for her People Tree line. The little black dress is cute and the white super-warm cardigan is nice to look at.
What do you think about the collection?
Georgia May Jagger fronts the Fall/ Winter 2010/ 2011 Ad Campaign for Hudson Jeans. And does that perfectly. Those denim pieces look wonderful on her. And though not the jeans but Georgia’s smooth skin is what the adverts are mostly focused on, Georgia does her best to attact attention of customers to the product.
Photographed by Mario Sorrenti in black and white Georgia May Jagger looks very pretty and hot in Hudson jeans from the new Fall/ Winter 2010/ 2011 collection.
Deep blood-red like a ruby, garnet is said to protect the wearer during travel. So if you’re afraid to fly, wear a piece of garnet jewelry with your Saint Christopher’s medal…
The name for this gorgeous purple birthstone comes from the Greek word, amethystos, which means “sober.” In ancient Greek times, it was thought to protect the wearer from intoxication… and only royalty could wear it. Now amethyst is thought to enhance personal relationships and give the wearer courage.
The birthstone for March was once thought to protect sailors from the ocean’s wrath, and also to treat stomach ailments by drinking water that had an aquamarine soaking in it. Now, it’s just a lovely pale-blue stone… but some still think it treats stomach, liver, and kidney disease.
We all know already that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and that they symbolize eternal, undying love and devotion. So if you’re lucky enough to have been born in April, it’s the perfect excuse to buy a special diamond for yourself. It’s an investment, right?
Did you know that Cleopatra loved emeralds, and that they used to symbolize fertility? Now the deep green stone represents wisdom and patience.
June: Alexandrite or Pearl
I love the color changes in Alexandrite, but the Pearl is really the first birthstone for June. Legend says pearls are actually Aphrodite’s tears of joy, and they’ve often represented purity, which is why brides wear them on their wedding days.
Red hot passion and love! That’s what the ruby symbolizes now, but in the past, Hindus believed the ruby protected the wearer from evil.
If you set a pale-green peridot in gold, it will protect you from nightmares. Historically, since peridot can be found near volcanoes, legend says that the stones are actually the frozen tears of the volcano goddess, Pele.
In ancient times, sapphires were thought to protect the wearer from poison, and it was a favorite of priests and kings for this reason.
If you’re having a hard time finding pink tourmaline, no worries – opal is an alternate stone for October. It’s a very soft stone, and it shatters easily, so wear it with great care. It symbolizes faithfulness and the word itself comes from the Latin word “opalus,” meaning “precious jewel.”
Citrine looks exactly like what it sounds like — bright, vibrant yellow! And topaz comes in more colors than you can imagine. Topaz used to be very popular in engagement rings, too, since it symbolizes love and affection.
I wish I had a December birthday, because I love both topaz and turquoise! Turquoise used to be thought of as a very potent love charm and turquoise rings in particular used to be worn to protect the wearer from harm.
