Glam Editorial: January issue of Harper’s Bazaar China

23 Dec

Combining high fashion with the striking scenery of Seoul makes for mind blowing editorials.

Featuring Chinese actress Gao Yuanyuan, this editorial was shot on location in Seoul and styled by Harper’s Bazaar China’s fashion editor Li Hui.

It brings words like elegant, graceful, resplendent, breath taking to mind. Once again, fashion is an art form.

Victoria Beckham Bag sells out in minutes

22 Dec

I’m the biggest fan of Victoria Beckham, style wise and fashion label wise. She recently launched the beautiful bag collection and two of the designs hit Net-a-porter today.

Apparently, this one here sold out in minutes.

Why am I not surprised? Viva VB!

Love-Want-Need: Michael Kors stretch-wool dress

22 Dec

The soft draping,  light taupe colour, cinched waist and asymmetric hem just makes this an instant TDF (to die for) piece. With a dress like this, Michael Kors is fast becoming a permanent favourite.

The fit is perfection. And as always, great styling by Net-a-porter, the coral Mulberry bag gives the look a pop of colour.

I thought of one more way to style it, dialled up the glam a bit, with a python bag and Lanvin bracelet.

Whichever way it’s styled, it’s a stunning dress and it’s available on Net-a-porter

Style Snack: Statement Necklaces a la Cocosa

21 Dec

Chic designer outlet and flash sale sites are no longer a secret, they’re exclusive but they’re open to everyone. Pardon the oxymoron, lol.

Our darlings at The Outnet, Gilt Groupe, Cocosa and the many other fab sites give us unending bouts of excitement, with dozens of outrageous price slashes on designer ware every week.

These gorgeous Dannijo pieces via Cocosa caught my eye, they’re all the drama you need for your LBD, basic tee + blazer or to dress up a plain outfit. At almost 70% off, this is more than a bargain.

It is such a beautiful thing to find a designer who makes what you love exceptionally well, leaving you with limitless options of beautiful pieces to choose from.

In this case, it’s Jeffrey Campbell wedges. And these wedges? Speak for themselves. They are the most A-M-A-Z-I-N-G shoes at unbelievable prices. I am literally drooling over them.

Carine Roitfeld: Rounding off a decade of Style

17 Dec

Carine Roitfeld is one of the leading ladies on my style icon wall of fame. Love her bold, eclectic and sometimes eccentric style; she can pull off a Tee and denim skirt and still look as fabulous as when she’s under a massive fur coat.

My biggest attraction is that very down-to-earth, vivacious personality; the polar opposite of Anna Wintour. She’s giggling, laughing, hugging, kissing people at fashion week. She’s a dedicated family woman, always seen hanging out with her son and daughter and is so energetic and full of life. And wow, does she live and breathe that effortless Parisian chic or what? She personifies the i-just-dropped-out-of-bed-looking-fabulous.

She’s literally synonymous with French Vogue, think French Vogue and Parisian Chic, think Carine Roitfeld.

So I definitely share the shock of the fashion world to hear that she’s resigned from French Vogue (after 10 years) to concentrate on personal projects. All hope is not lost though, i know the fashion world hasn’t heard the last of Carine. And of course the speculation is on about  her replacement, as if it’s not already been decided, i think it just might be her right hand chic and loyal fashion director, Emmanuelle Alt.

I had always wanted to do a blog post on Carine Roitfeld as my Style icon, so i guess here goes. Check out the stunning style of the outgoing French Vogue editor.

French Vogue will miss Carine sorely but we, we’ll be on the look out for her because we know she’ll be around.

Pre Fall 2011: The elegance of Monique Lhuillier

17 Dec

Monique Lhuillier has my heart on a string for Pre fall 2011. The collection ticks all the right boxes of chic, flatters the feminine form, those cinched waists, generous draping, jewel tones, high waisted pants, and perfectly versatile range of the collection. Love Love Love
