Sneakers have always been limited to working out, running errands and going perfectly with mom jeans.  This fall 2014 that’s all changed, sneakers have taken an off the runway look that can be perfectly matched with any high end couture outfit of your choice. You can style up a suit or even match some wedges with an afterhour’s cocktail dress. Fashion icon Rihanna has made sneakers a versatile addition to her outfits. Rihanna wears Jordan sneakers with jeans and a t-shirt or Chanel  cap toe sneakers with a white Jefferson blazer and ALC lucas shorts. There are absolutely no rules to this new fashion trend.

It always starts on the runway. It’s only nearing the end of September and we already have a signature piece for the fall! Ever since supermodel Cara Delavigne strutted down the runway in this Burberry Monogram Block Cape during their fall 2014 show, celebrities and fashion icons alike have been making it their go to piece. From actress Sarah Jessica Parker who is a fashion icon in her own right to Victoria Secret Angel Rosie Huntington Whiteley, it seems like all of our favorite style icons are down with the trend. The piece was already a big hit among the stars, but it wasn’t until NYC’s favorite style star Olivia Polermo hit the New York streets with it that it became a staple piece for everyone famous or not. Now the color block Burberry coat is sold out almost everywhere! So what is it about this piece that makes it our signature fall trend? Is it that fact what we can’t tell if it’s a poncho, a blanket cape or a wrap jacket? Or is it the fact that we can get our initials on the front, adding our own unique flair? It would be too simple to say that the piece is chic. To be a signature trend, especially for fall, it has to possess something extra special and this definitely has that “it” factor.

Craziness at Alexander Wang’s SS14 Show #NYFW

Craziness-at-Alexander-Wang-s-SS14-Show--NYFW

 

It’s New York Fashion Week, and what show is better to start the craziness than Alexander Wang? It was a star studded event with the front row being filled by names like Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Die Antwood, Kim Gordon, Tyga and Miguel. Not only did Minaj come to support the event, she even went a step further to teach a class to the models backstage: How to Anaconda 101. Now that’s a class to sign up for. With her new video, the spotlight has been on Minaj’s assets now more than ever. Wang invited Minaj backstage to show the models, who ended up being looking more awkward and uncomfortable than sexy, how to do some of her moves from the video. They were clearly lacking what is needed to Anaconda, ahem, but A for effort anyways! Another face that appeared late that night at the after party was Miley Cyrus, who showed up in her most controversial outfit yet: ice cream pasties! She paired it with a pretty simple look, black pants, sneakers and a pair of Miley DIY cat eye sunglasses. It’ll be hard to top this one but we’ll be sure to look out more of her DIY outfit projects at Jeremy Scott’s show where they will be making a debut.

Sophia Bush Teams Up with Joe Fresh to Design a T-shirt, and It’s for a Good Cause!

ophia Bush Teams Up with Joe Fresh to Design a T-shirt, and It’s for a Good Cause!

 

Canadian retailer Joe Fresh opened his first flagship store in NYC just three years ago, and has since then made a name for him as a brand that is affordable and trendy. To celebrate the launch of his new e-commerce website in the USA, Fresh recruited Sophia Bush a loved actress and activist to design a t-shirt for the brand. Not long after Bush became the face of the #TurnColorOn campaign, a marketing campaign meant to focus on the color saturated collections. The actress, who is known for being a hard core activist, gave insight into what the people at Joe Fresh were thinking designing this t-shirt: “When [the people at Joe Fresh] were talking about launching this online experience, the general consensus was: ‘Look, that’s cool, but what don’t we launch for a reason. Why don’t we really do some good for the world.’” The end result? A Sophia Bush original with 100% of the proceeds going to the Human Rights Campaign, a civil rights organization fighting for the equality of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender Americans. “Everyone should be able to love who they love, and sadly, we’re still fighting legislation that’s trying to marginalize equality,” said the actress. “I hate that certain people are treated differently than others just because of who they love. In this world that is full of such strife and war and poverty, where we see people struggling, what is the point of wasting a moment criticizing who somebody loves?” The concept of Bush’s design is simple yet full of meaning, “all kisses are created equal, and love should never be divided.” Sophia Bush, you have done it again. #YouGoGirl!

VMA #FlashbackSunday: Katy Perry and Riff Raff vs. Amber Rose

August 25th, 2014   admin  Uncategorized   No Comments »

FlashbackSunday-Katy-Perry-and-Riff-Raff-vs-Amber-Rose

So it seems as if there was a #FlashbackSunday memo that we did not receive. Last night, for the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, Katy Perry, Riff Raff, and Amber Rose showed up in ensembles that were reminiscent of some of the most unforgettable moments in VMA fashion history. Back in 2001, a time when the most loved couple in pop music, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, was still together, they showed up at the Video Music Awards in matching denim outfits. They were honestly so cute we forgave them for the fashion faux pa immediately, but we never forget the outfits. It seems as if Katy Perry and Riff Raff didn’t either as they showed up last night wearing matching denim outfits as well. To top it off Riff Raff had bright pink braids in his hair. As if that wasn’t enough, let us go back even further to 1998 when Rose McGowan showed up to the VMA’s in the infamous barely there dress that left people speechless. Amber Rose, apparently never forgot the dress as she showed up last night in a 2014 version of the barely there dress herself. Although to Amber Rose’s credit, she is not showing as much skin as McGowan, it’s safe to say these stars weren’t trying to leave any room for the imagination.

Since her first appearance on the runway in 2010, Delevigne quickly became a fan favorite with her fun quirky personality and her amazing brows that pretty much started a revolution. The Brit model quickly gained fame, and now with her new fall campaign, she just made history. Topshop launched their new Autumn/Winter 2014 campaign with Cara as their first-ever solo star. The campaign was shot by photographer Alasdair McLellan and styled by Kate Phelan, who claims that Delevigne was the perfect fit for the brand. “Cara is a true Topshop girl. Her style is confident and playful and she can be sophisticated and chic as easily as she can be cool and casual.” As an added bonus, they even gave her a bunny! Adorably named Cecil Delevigne, he now has over 100,000 followers on Instagram with his very own account. Needless to say it was love at first sight for the both of them, and the rest is history.
