ONE SIZE FITS ALL

V magazine has chosen to do an exclusive preview of their size issue in collaboration with models.com . I think this spread is absolutely genius! Both models have similar looks but very different body shapes that are beautiful in their own way. Terry Richardson did a fantastic job to show that beauty can come in all shapes and sizes. I think this issue is going to knock down the barrier between plus size models and high fashion.

Alternative

Everyone seem's to want a fang necklace and most people's first choice would be the PAM necklace, BUT there is a not so bad alternative for a much more reasonable price. In fact I'm starting to like the dramatic daggers over the cautious rounded PAM fangs... (what do you think?)

Shop for a Cause::

Last night I interned for Niki Shadrow celebrity stylist at a charity event that started on Dec 3rd and will continue until Dec 24th. Shop for a Cause is full of Designer brands for women, children, and men at discounted prices. A portion of the proceeds go towards benefiting Cambodian Children who are suffering from either health problems or living conditions. The event itself was very much enjoyable, including a live DJ, open bar, 3D photo booth, yogurt stand, and a comfortable, cool shopping experience.

Trend Forecasting

+ Hemlines will drop 

+ Flats will make a comfortable come back.

+ Headbands will a make a sneaky entrance as will the flowy, romantic style of the 70's.

I  think  were headed for a decade mixture of the 70's and the 80's...

It's ironic that the majority of my image choices featured studs. I'm so up and down with them I should just learn to accept that they're here to stay; and embrace them while they are.

Revisiting MK for NYLON

I know this video is really out dated from several years ago, but i just love it. From the soundtrack to MK's heroin chic presence; It pulls me in. I think this was one of NYLON's better covers because it featured someone with an original sense of style. Someone who wasn't trying to be something else, and who was doing their own thing while inspiring at the same time.

Stud Sickness

I can't seem to make up my mind about how I feel towards studs, so I'm going to remain neutral on this subject. One day I've seen enough, and then there's this amazing peice held together so strongly by studs.

I feel like once studs they could make you stand out, now they just help you fit in.

...........................................................................

As said by Style.com fashion critic Nicole Phelps, "Marc Jacobs is tired of seeing young girls wearing black and studs."

 "It's not such an individual expression," Marc said after his spring show.

Have a Balmain New Year!

Balmain's last two shows have really portrayed what women want. He has designed a handful of fun, sexy, edgy, dresses that barely cover the crotch. I mean who wouldn't want to rock one of these numbers?! I know I would, and theres no better night than New Years Eve to sport a  little dress like this!

If your not into dresses try a sequin or silk pant with a strong shouldered blazer.

Spring Brows

Whether your blonde or brunette, bleached out brows are a hot new trend for Spring 2010; as seen in runway shows from Chloe to Alexander Wang. But don't be fooled, fuller, darker brows are tagging along with this bleached out trend. This season its all about dramatic eyes, including outlandish eye make up. Stand out, let this be an excuse to go crazy!

Bare Exposure

Lingerie has been a major trend on the spring runways shown by designers such as Albert Kriemler, Stella McCartney, Dolce & Gabbana, John Galliano, and Jean Paul Gaultier. You have to be careful when wearing innerwear as outerwear. If your going to rock this baring look, make sure it looks chic and not trashy.

VINTAGE By Kate Moss

Photobucket

Kate Moss developed her very first perfume fragrance, VINTAGE. It is a blend of floriental and fruity scents.


"I am fascinated by vintage pieces because they not only have a remarkable beauty but also an innate sense of history. I love the fact that each object has its own story to tell. And yet vintage items can be reinvented with a modern twist to make them very fresh and relevant today. That's why vintage looks have inspired my personal style, my work as a fashion designer and, now, my fragrance." - Kate Moss
