Though I’m not usually Gisele fan, I am making an exception for her Vogue Brazil cover, which is especially brilliant. It’s inspired by street art, and I imagine it’s close to the Brazilian model’s heart. Her pregnancy sure isn’t slowing her down.
‘Slumdog Millionaire’ beauty covered the August issue of Flaunt Magazine, and she can be seen in the picture below wearing Parasuco Jeans. I’m told that the fall line for the Canadian based brand “will be influenced by a contemporary take on underground London street life combined with metropolitan chic influences.” No word yet on who made the oil for her shot, but she sure looks shiny.
Though I realize the ridiculousness of a teenage-engagement, my love for fashion made me delighted to get an email with sketch ideas for Miley Cyrus’ wedding dress. See the dresses below, combined with quotes from each designer explaining the inspiration.
“This gown that I created complements the more whimsical and bohemian style that match her casual country aesthetic while mixing in elements like cut-outs and lace that reflect the more sophisticated style she has been rocking lately on the red carpet.”
“Miley has a personal approach to fashion which is bold and I wanted to reflect that. She has transitioned into a beautiful young woman and this silhouette is perfect for her. The vintage style of the beadwork paired with the modern application of the skirt gives the gown a youthful yet romantic tone”. —ANNE BARGE
“Miley Cyrus style has evolved. We have seen her grow on the red carpet. We were inspired by her new sophisticated confidence. We think she’ll want to continue her sexy style but with classic touches. Peplums are huge right now. This silhouette is borrowed from the couture runways, they add structure and shape to the dress. Agua Dulce silk sweetheart neckline dress with structured peplum bodice. Soft Chantilly lace details with pearl and sequin embroidery throughout. Mermaid skirt.” — designer MARIANA AGUIRRE of Agua Dulce
‘Miley is so fresh and young with a bubbly personality—this gown will highlight her curves yet give her a modern air of sophistication and elegance on her wedding day.’ —JUNKO YOSHIOKA
“Miley has always chosen elegant and classic gowns for her red carpet appearances. I see her choosing a style that expresses her personal style and fashionable taste but still keeping it elegant and tasteful. “ –Ines Di Santo
‘Since Miley is a young bride, I could see her wanting a fairytale ball gown style dress. The look I sketched for her is bold and extravagant leaving no detail overlooked.’ –ANGEL RIVERA
It’s not possible to explain in words how sick I am of Marilyn Monroe. She’s become the party guest that you can’t escape. In fact, I wonder if her spirit is dancing to Gotye’s “Somebody I Used to Know” in celebration of over-exposure. Seriously, Vanity Fair — please get more creative the next time around. This is the third time in five years she’s been on your cover.
Kate Moss is one of my favorite models. And Vogue is one of my favorite magazines. Click here to see their full collaboration, and look below to see, “Jamie and Kate channel a modern-day Mick and Bianca Jagger, re-creating the couple’s 1971 backseat wedding portrait by royal photographer Lord Lichfield.”
Isabel Toledo appeared on The View to promote her new collection, and she hit it out of the park. She shot to super-stardom when she dressed Michelle Obama for President Obama’s inauguration and she certainly has the design-chops for a long-sustaining career. She doesn’t really need my promotion, but I have to give credit where credit is due. Watch below.
I love curvy women. In fact, all of my celebrity girl-crushes have curves (see Selma Hayek & Jennifer Lopez). And though I walk out of the room backwards when there’s a man in my bed, the Plus Model Magazine images below have certainly helped with my process. Look below to see America’s Next Top Model contestant, Katya Zharkova, posing naked in heels, and click here to read some startling statistics about the modeling industry.
There’s something fundamentally cheesy about celebrities who model their own clothing. And when that clothing is lingerie — it’s even worse. To top it off, the Kardashian girls are practically unrecognizable in their ad. They are so heavily airbrushed they border on cartoon characters. Did I mention they’re orange? I realize this is how it’s done now, but it’s ridiculous.
