Lea Michele turns her gleek off for Candie’s

Keywords: lae michele, candies, kohls

Lea Michele is not looking so gleeky in the new Candie’s campaign! The Glee star is following in the footsteps of teen idols such as Britney Spears and Vanessa Hudgens as the new face for Candie’s. There is always some what of a riskay element to the campaigns, and Lea brought just the right amount of edge to the photos. According to Lea, “Candie’s is such an iconic brand and I am so happy to be working with them!” I think Lea was a great choice for the campaign and is positive influence for the teens that shop Candie’s. Visit Kohl’s to check out the rest of the campaign!



 

 

Love this Orange jacket, and might even find my way over to a Lacoste store and investing in one.  I have a million jackets, but I don’t have one that’s just a quick throw on to keep you dry and warm in the rain.    There are more pictures after the click for you guys.  I’ve always liked Lacoste clothing-  but it falls under a price range where, if I’m spending money like that at a store, I’m not spending it on Lacoste.  That’s not to say I’m not a supporter,  it just means I think their stuff is 30% more expensive than it should be.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions here ladies and gentleman.  Speaking of opinions-  Check out the stoner model after the click.  I love the sweater he’s wearing… but where the heck did Lacoste find these guys? Full Story »

Israel takes action against eating disorders and starts ban on underweight models.

Finally, a step in the right direction. Israel is one of the first countries in the world to set regulations to help prevent the use of underweight models. Parliament has issued a new law that requires models to submit health records in order to make sure that they are not malnourished. Parliament is also requiring magazines and advertisers to disclose to readers when a models image was altered in any way to make her look thinner. Hopefully the rest of the world will follow in Israel’s footsteps and help set the right example for young women!

What’s black, white, and red all over? The Alice + Olivia Fall 2012 collection that is! The stunning collection of bold prints on a base of neutrals, with splashes of kool-aid red, and punchy florals was a perfect match against the zebra hide rug. The presentation was all about statement pieces, the color-blocked dress and the wide leg printed pants were some of the more wearable statement pieces from the collection. This was another one of my favorite shows from this past week, what do you think of Alice + Olivia?



Chanel Fall 2012 Haute Couture, a “new vintage” inspired collection!

Keywords: chanel, couture, paris fashion week

As I type, Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris is wrapping up, and so far one of the most memorable collections has been Chanel, which showed on Monday. The collection was the perfect mixture of  classic and current.

According to Mr. Lagerfeld, ”Vintage is depressing, but ‘new vintage’ is something to come. It’s preparation for something that could last.”

The collection consists of both trendy and classic silhouettes; harem pants, swingy capes, and broad shoulders, with film noir-esque color palette of black, white, grey, and swirls of dusty rose. This collection exudes luxury and is the epitome of couture. Well done Mr. Lagerfeld, well done!
