Look for Less: House of Harlow Necklace


Celebs such as Vanessa Minilo, Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian are just some of the fans of Nicole Richie's House of Harlow line. They've all been spotted wearing this plated resin necklace from the collection, which retails for $125. If you're looking for the look for less, then you're in luck. Nicole Richie recently launched an exclusive line for Bebe. One of the items is a very similar plated resin necklace, which retails for almost half the price of her House of Harlow line at just $69.Here's where you can get it:

Hello Kitty for MAC!



As you know I am slightly obsessed with Hello Kitty.. and she is super cute in her new MAC Cosmetics! It's been out for some time now but I couldn't help to post again ;)

Sci-Fi-Themed Victoria’s Secret Show 09'


Alessandra Ambrosio will open the next Victoria's Secret fashion show, which tapes this Thursday in New York and airs next month on CBS. She'll wear a neon bra with matching neon panties and wings by designer Alexander Koutny, a Central Saint Martins alum who says his mother was a "closet Trekkie."
The clean lines are a departure from shows past, in which the models appeared to have been loaded up with as many shrugs, leg warmers, arm warmers, metal corsets, and belts as possible without diminishing the naked effect. This year's show is sci-fi-themed and includes six sections: Magical Journey, All Aboard, Pink Planet, Enchanted Forest, Romantic Journey, and Star Trooper. So sexy lingerie-clad space cadets are in our future :) oh-lala


Beyoncé looks UBER Hot! (In new Music Video...)


Lady Gaga kinda freaks me out... but in a good way.
I like her ballsy style, vids, and personality... she could care less what we all think and just does her thing, kudos to her! Anyway Beyonce and Lady did a vid together (Video Phone) and I have to say Beyonce is smoking! Loving her whole deal... too bad sony took it off You Tube (leaked)! I will put it up when it's out! :)

Kardashian Jewelry Collection


Not only will the Kardashian sisters’ clothing line for Bebe hit stores this spring, but Kim, Kourtney and Khloe will also be launching a jewelry collection for hip L.A. brand Virgin Saints and Angels. “The collection embraces our unique style…. Romantic, edgy, and classic vintage… of at least we hope so :) . Our Armenian culture is very important to us and we tried to incorporate that in the jewelry also,” Kim writes on her official website. The Kardashians’ collection will hit stores like Santa Barbara’s Blue Bee, Sparkle Fred Segal and Nordstrom on April 15, 2010.

W Showroom in WWD! Yay!


W Showroom has been on the road for almost 1 month... yes, we want to lose our minds but we are meeting tons of peeps and even having some fun along the way! We see slews of brands, tons of buyer, and we love it. We have 12+ brands in our showroom and bring them all over the USA. Right now we are in Texas.. Dallas Ya'll! We got a shout out in a popular Fashion Industry mag, WWD.

"In other DMC news, Scene has grown to 80 booths, including eight for W Showroom, whose labels include Gold Tag Denim, Parasuco, Civil Society and RPGene.

The venue also has 500 permanent showrooms and Temporaries on 12, with 150 booths including young contemporary resources, cowboy boots and novelties."

When W Showroom comes to a show we come strong!

Forever 21 “Twist”!



Forever 21 put out their newest collection “Twist”.
It’s inspired by ballet babes. Check out the entire collection on their site. Next Wednesday, October 28th it launches the limited edition label, so snatch it up while you can!
I'm really digging it!

Nicole Richie Designs New Contemporary Line!


Yay my fav Nicole Richie is starting a line!

Nicole Richie is a new mom again, but that's not stopping her from expanding her fashion empire. Along with House of Harlow 1960 and a maternity line for A Pea in the Pod, she is designing a women's contemporary line called Winter Kate (Harlow's middle names). The 37-piece collection, which was inspired by peacocks and other birds, includes tops, vests, bed jackets, and dresses — mini, long slip-style, and kimono-sleeve maxis.

"Fashion should be accessible. That was my philosophy when designing House of Harlow 1960 and it remains my philosophy for Winter Kate," she said. Prices start at $35 and go up to $598 for leather pieces. Look out for the line in February at stores like Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s, Intermix, and Kitson.


You’ll See It Everywhere


Every summer has its wardrobe: a few pieces that catch on and suddenly define the season (gladiator sandals, anybody?). We’ve sifted through the trends and determined what we’ll all be seeing, in some form, for the next four months.

Round Sunglasses
Bangles
Studs
Plaid Shirts
Sparkles

I'm rocking pretty much all of those now! Except for the round Sunglasses...my head is too small for that look!

ATM’s D-List Judges

Excepting the often-random front rows at New York Fashion Week, we generally don't expect to see Kim Kardashian rubbing shoulders with beloved noted fashion photographer Nigel Barker, unless perhaps they are both attending a Hot People on Reality Shows convention. But there she was, sitting at the judging panel on last night's America's Next Top Model, even though her actual professional modeling experience is just about equal to theirs. Kim is the latest in an increasingly random selection of guest judges to appear on the five-seven-and-under cycle of ANTM, and in the vein of Carrie Bradshaw, we can't help but wonder: Is Tyra screwing with us?

What a muppet!

It's official - Lady Gaga is a muppet.

Although some might genuinely think this of the wacky songstress, I can't think of anyone more suitable to wear Jean-Charles de Castelbajac's autumn/winter 2009-10 collection. While in Germany this weekend, Gaga donned a fuzzy monster-style dress and a cape created from dead Kermits during a TV interview. But it was this complete tent ensemble that has left us most speechless. Has Gaga gone too far this time?

Megan Fox for Armani


We should have known something was up when Megan Fox appeared on the front row next to Cate Blanchett at the Armani Privecouture show in July. Now it has been confirmed that theTransformers star is Giorgio Armani's newest recruit.

Following in the footsteps of the Beckhams, Fox will front the ad campaigns forEmporio Armani Underwear, as well as Armani Jeans. She has been picked, along with soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo (yay!) who will represent men's Emporio Armani Underwear, to be the label's new ambassadors.

Photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott last weekend, we will first get to see the ads when they are unveiled in January next year. With her look-a-like now in, I guess Angelina Jolie is definitely out then?

Look who has landed in Manhattan...

I never thought I'd see the day when Samantha Jones would be cavorting with the likes of a Disney starlet, but I guess that's show business for a powerhouse publicist like Miss Jones.

Spotted on set this week during the filming of Sex and the City 2, was Kim Cattrall and Miley Cyrus, who makes a cameo as herself. Not only were the duo happily posing for the paps, they were also wearing the exact, same thing (what the?!). They were dressed in identical sparkly Mathew Williamson mini dresses and matching brown boots. Curiouser and curiouser..

Mark Fast Does Topshoph


That rumor we spread about Mark Fast doing a line for Topshop?

It’s true. And it’s in last week’s Sunday Telegraphmagazine which means it was true before I even said anything.

The article about the Canadian “prairie boy” fills the reader in on his rise to design fame, pre-plus-size models, and how he left Canada for a coveted spot at Central Saint Martins under Louise Wilson’s tutelage. He’s since worked with Alber Elbaz and landed repeated NewGen sponsorship from Topshop.

Apparently the high street brand approached him before his SS10 show regarding a design collaboration. So those still wondering if the plus-size girls were just a press ploy can stop, because he obviously doesn’t need it.

Vanessa Abrams...Kick ass Wardrobe!


The juxtaposition between boho girl and rocker chick is perfect for a day of fashionable studying..I love it!

Beyonce Too Sexy For Malaysia


Beyonce won't be showing off her, um, leotards anytime soon in Malaysia. The singer has canceled her upcoming show in the predominately Muslim country because it has upset conservative Muslims who think her show is immoral. Although Beyonce is not subject to the country's Sharia courts and cannot be tried for moral offenses, her sexy dances and costumes would nevertheless cause some outrage. The country's Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party called for the cancellation because it would promote "Western sexy performances." Well they're right about that — Beyonce definitely puts on a sexy show. Considering a 32-year-old Malaysian model was recently sentenced to be caned for drinking a beer in a hotel nightclub, I'm not so surprised some people there aren'tready for Beyonce's jelly.

Scarlett Shows Off Mango's Newest Goodies


I can see why Scarlett Johansson's been busy jet-setting around the world to promote her latest ad campaign for Mango.The sexy actress looks sizzling hot showing off the Spanish retailer's array of minidresses, tailored blazers, perfectly ripped sweaters (my fave), and funky tunics. ScarJo's messy short bob has major ferosh factor and works in perfectly with Mango's hip offerings. I can't wait for that jewel-embellished miniskirt to hit stores!

Naomi and LV Show Off Their Charitable Side


Naomi Campbell might have had issues with anger management in the past, but she's putting all of that aside for charity. In support of The White Ribbon Alliance, a foundation dedicated to reducing maternal mortality, the Super collaborated with Louis Vuitton to sell this hunter green monogrammed Louis Vuitton bag ($2,800) — proceeds from sales will go to the foundation. People say fashion people don’t do anything. "We do a lot," said Campbell, who is the global ambassador for the foundation. The handbag will be available in March 2010.

Sonia Rykiel For H&M!


Just in time for Christmas, H&M has announced its latest designer collaboration: Sonia Rykiel for H&M. And for the first time, this collection will be lead by lingerie. The lingerie collection will launch in H&M stores Dec. 5 and — another first — will be available in Sonia Rykiel boutiques around the world. The "Queen of Knits" will then release a second collection featuring an iconic knitwear collection for women and girls as well as playful accessories on Feb. 20, 2010.

"It is a hallmark of Sonia Rykiel to think of all women because fashion is about a certain spirit more than a question of means. This collaboration fits perfectly with our philosophy. The Sonia Rykiel pour H&M lingerie collection is the ideal way to offer the essence of Rykiel to a great number of women around the world, and a beautiful way to close the year. The knitwear collection is perfect for welcoming a colourful new season,” says Nathalie Rykiel, president and artistic director of Sonia Rykiel, in a recent news release. Something to look forward to!

2010 Spring Milan Fashion Week: Dolce & Gabbana


It was all about passion and romance at Dolce & Gabbana's Spring showing at Milan Fashion Week. Showing utmost creative capability, the designers made a heavenly mix of sexy menswear-inspired suits, lace dresses, floral-printed separates, blouson shorts, and tiered frocks. "[The collection] is sexy, but not too sexy. . . . We're talking about sensuality," said Domenico Dolce. And that they did via bold, leopard prints, scintillating corsets, and a slick play on see-through dressing via black netting and mesh.

FASHION NIGHT OUT at Victoria Secret's

Looking ravishing in a bright color block combo, Miranda Kerr lit up the room at Victoria's Secret Lexington Store during Fashion's Night Out on September 10 in NYC.
MK hosted VS's event in a fiery red bandage skirt and loose plum tank with nude peeptoes (to nab the contrasting look try Black Halo's Colorblock Michelle Mini Dress in Poppy/Ocean or Suzabelle's Sutton Pencil Skirt in Midnight Blue with Rebecca Taylor's Rosette Cami in Amethyst). Miranda completed the look with perfect glossy curls, light make-up and a skinny silver bangle (try Erica Anenberg's Love At First Sight Cuff in Sterling Silver).
What do you think of MK's attire? Personaly I think it rocks!

Sartorial queen Anna Wintour is the force behind Fashion's Night Out, a collaboration between Vogue and the CFDA to unite retailers in 12 majors cities worldwide to open their doors until 11pm to give shoppers a taste of new fall arrivals. In New York alone there were over 700 events drawing hordes of fashionistas, celebs, and curious shoppers to venues boasting live music, exotic apps and special events like Chanel's first-time-ever offer to create your own personalized classic quilted bag, with lambskin, lining, hardware and chain colors of your choice, and your monogram making it official.
Were any of you able to make it to these events in LA, NY or London?

LAUREN CONRAD FOR KOHL'S

Personally I don't dig Kohl's...If I need discount shopping I usually had over to my trusted Forever 21 , Joyce Lesile, or Target... but whatever floats your boat... so anyway Lauren Conrad was photographed at the Kate Somerville Emmy Gifting Suite Event in Los Angeles, September 18, mingling with skin expert Somerville while scooping up her luxe products. Lauren, looking polished as always, started with a loose golden tunic (for two similar frocks, try Juicy Couture's Jackie Ruffle Dress in Beausoleil or Ingwa Melero's intricate Charmeause Lotus Mini Dress in Chartreuse - or for similar silhouettes in different shades, check out Velvet's comfortable Charonna Dress in Brown or 12th Street by Cynthia Vincent's absolutely beautiful Beaded Neck Dress in Grey) that she belted (similar to Julie K Handbags' Tess Belt in Golden) and paired with delicate heels, a gold bangle (take a look at Rachel Leigh Jewelry's Sweet Tooth Bangle in Gold) and her signature single hair braid. What are your thoughts on Lauren's look here - basic, yes... but pretty, no?
Lauren was spotted earlier in Santa Monica participating in a Kohl's Department Store-sponsored beach clean up, and I can only assume she was there for one of two reasons. The first, that she actually cares about keeping our beaches clean (she did grow up on the beach in Laguna, after all) - and the second, that she was contractually obliged to be there, due to the fact that she just released her new clothing line at Kohl's.

Lauren tells Us Weekly that her new line is "a little more casual... trying to take that California style and make it accessible everywhere." A rep from the department store added in "We are confident the LC Lauren Conrad collection brings customers both the contemporary style and the world-class brand." While the collection contains mostly skinny jeans, flowy tops, and pretty dresses, do you have any interest in checking it out? Meaning venture into a Kohl's?

Agent Provocateur Spring 2010


With the larger Spring 2010 catwalks consuming much of our day, it's quite easy to forget about the more intimate affairs of a fashion week that quite often present the work from equally talented, yet less funded, designers. With Agent Provocateur's Spring 2010 catwalk, however, the word intimate may definitely apply but scant clothing is to be found. I love!!

AUDRINA PATRIDGE IN DIVINE RIGHTS OF DENIM


Audrina Patridge was present in Vegas at the Magic Marketplace tradeshow promoting the Divine Rights of Denim line. Retailers are hoping for a turnaround in the recession as this years tradeshow is busier than last. The Hills and Sorority Row "actress" stood alongside designer Rokhsan Enanoria (Patridge is the face, not the designer of the brand) wearing what else but Divine Rights of Denim.

ALINA JEANS

After a year of development the new premium denim women's line Alina Jeans recently launched at Project Las Vegas with their Dirty Summer 2010 collection.
Alina Jeans are made from premium Italian denim and each pair is handmade in downtown L.A.! Inspired by Venice Beach, the collection's creative designer Alina Stefanescu says: "This is a collection you could be shipwrecked in and still look sexy. Lots of distressing, gorgeous bleaches and a 'dirty' feel." Which I adore! I love the hot mess look... with a side of rocker appeal...
