So in all fairness I will leave you with the brand spanking new Chanel No5 editorial video of Gisele Bundchen looking like a million dollars, in the ocean, down an alley looking sexy, sultry and positively radiant.

Enjoy the gorgeous that is Gisele!

Trend Report #NYFW Baby Pinks, Blues and Bolds #Day5 #Trend #SS2015

Thank god for Style.com and their runway reporting. They report every collection, designer and runway worldwide and those of us in the industry would be lost without them. Especially when we are on the wrong side of the country during NYFW. But business is business and while I hustle and shake in LA (new products, events and interviews coming up) I still have my eye on Fashion Week’s around the world. You, my faithful reader’s, need to be in the know Otherwise there will be mayhem and fashionistas wandering the streets assuming Crocs, and the Kardashian’s are fashionable (gag).

Let’s get started;

This fashion week has been a bluster of basics and classic, romantic notions bring out baby pinks and icy blue to the runway. Chic silhouettes we saw with a touch of mad men, have turned to classic romantics and A-Line sporty outfits with a dash of sex.

Flowing figures and classic summer sexy hit DVF, aka, Diane Von Furstenburg. Diane is a great go to for classy and clean career wear. I highly recommend if you want to look top-notch A list fabulous for a job interview or day time event investing. Her clothing is always perfection.

DVF came through again on the SS 2015 runway. Relying on stripes and checked material adding length and volume created a work worthy collection with a little extra leg, and flare that came as a sexy surprise to her normally subdued dresses.

Angeline Jolie has inspired a leggy look recently in gown’s and I completely approve.

Though many opted for orange this year DVF took to emerald bring and this stunning yellow on model Lais Ribeiro.

Ending the show in true runway fashion, model Naomi Campbell finished the spring collection in this flurry of tulle boasting orange, bright pink and white in an empire waist-lined, babydoll dress.

NaomiDVFWell played Dian Von Furstenbeg.

Moving on to a personal favorite, Zac Posen. His collections always bring me back to embracing my sexy side and make me feel like a woman. His designs create a perfect figure on any woman and his use of textile is genius!

We find that this Spring/Summer season Posen’s simple, classical, feminine beauty reigned free with minimalist black’s and white.

Adding the intensity of crimson orange to his collection Posen pair’s it with tight angle’s that create a thin and tall female form. Beauty fanatics, note the orange nail polish and lipstick Posen chose to feature on his models for dramatic flair.

ZacPosenOrangesuitAlekZac Posen continues to create the ideal of feminine grace in his collection by ending it with this beautiful gown fit for a queen in pure and simple white.

Over at another NYFW favorit BCBG Max Azria chose a more floral and romantic feel with in his collection for Spring/Summer 2015. Fading from barely-there neutral pink to the palest of blues and back to pink again. BCBG Max Azria touched on an almost art nouveau feel with yards of flowing fabric.

BCBGblancapdillaA dash of floral mixed pink’s and blue’s on Miho Mijaljcic create’s a perfect mix of elegant for this maxi dress.

And back to baby blue…

BCBGMijoMihaljcic bcbgTayaErmoshkinaBCBGStashaYatchukThis Spring maxi dresses have dominated the runway, leaving skin bare with a combination of sheer panels, deep V’s and off the shoulder or one shoulder pieces. Glowingly graceful is taking hold with career women boasting tight silhouette’s and deep slit’s in their skirt’s and suits.

It’s all about adding a dash of sexy to your daily routine so if you thought of slacking on exercise this winter, fuggedaboutit. Skin is in, and we’re going girly.

Time to start shopping for those skinny and sporty dresses and skirts for next season. Leave the pants at home and don’t forget to pair some gold greens, yellows, pink and my personal favorite ORANGE in with your shopping. If you aren’t sure how to do color try adding a hint to your nails, lip color or accessories.

I’ll keep updating as we travel the runways around the world. Keep checking back for updates!

@KarlLagerfeld Makes Everything Old New Again, Mod Inspired Shoot with @NumeroMagazine #French #KarlLagerfeld #Photography

Unkle Karl strikes again!

10551693_690028547748747_3876725206762386476_o

Taking Numero Magazine to new heights, Karl Lagerfeld went behind the lens and created 5 original ‘Mod’ magazine covers with ‘Pop Couture’.

With a sixties psychedelic background, Karl Lagerfeld gives us ‘joie de vivre’ Parisian style, including fashions by;

Jean Paul Gaultier, Dior, Armani Prive, Valentino and of course Chanel showcase a youthful and carefree side of couture – still elegant but completely in line with the way modern women dress.

I don’t know about youthful and carefree as much as devastating, gorgeous and scintillating sexy.

Bravissimo, Karl Lagerfeld! Your creativity knows no bounds. Check the other four masterpieces below.

Powerful Beauties in New Balmain Campaign #Rihanna #Naomi #Iman

Leave it to the french fashion house of Balmain to take three everlasting and powerful beauties to grace their new campaign. Partnering with W Magazine, Balmain presents one of the most striking covers of the year.

w-september-2014-cover-embed

The cover itself is stunning, but W mag and Olivier Rousteing, the new head of Balmain take things up a notch inside the pages of the magazine. Snagging the powerhouses that are Rihanna, Naomi Campbell and Iman, W magazine creates an overpowering editorial.

Olivier Rousteing proves without a doubt (pictured above), at 27, he is beyond brilliant as the new head designer and creative director of Balmain. We can’t wait to see what he comes up with next. Bring it Balmain!

Last Installment of #BeautyDefined with Shaun Ross by Jonas Akerlund, clothing by Bohemian Society (@ShaundRoss @Akerlund_Jonas)

This week I am meeting with the head of Bohemian Society, Victor. As I was researching him, his line and his daring and beautiful editorial’s, I noticed he worked with one of my favorite model’s du monde, Shaun Ross. If you haven’t heard of Shaun Ross, you will, NOW.

Shaun Ross in Bohemian Society

Shaun Ross in Bohemian Society

Shaun Ross is an amazing model who has worked runway, worked with Lana Del Rey, Katy Perry and appeared on a little show called ‘American Horror Story’. What makes him so distinct? He’s a black albino with white skin and natural blonde hair. Add the talent that is Jonas Akerlund, a Swedish (team Svenske) visionary of our time who has made video art again. The thought of the two of these talents alone is mind-blowing but all three?

Jonas Akerlund, with Bohemian society and Shaun Ross have created the final chapter of the amazing #DefineBeauty films.

Beyond the Skin

Here is an amazing editorial, with three if my favorite minds meeting, to make beautiful art.

God Save McQueen. Spring/Summer 2014 Collection #SS2014

mcqueenSS2014

As always the brilliance that is the house of McQueen dazzles us on the runway this year. A collection made of primary colors with a dash of monochromatic in mesh, which was reflected in many collections on the runway this year. Adding a flair of turn of the century designs, patterned mesh and the predominant use of boxy crop tops with plenty of skin, the house of McQueen has struck an artistic note in this years SS 2014 collection.

Well done, Sarah Burton. Carry one and be magnificent.

Watch below.

Chanel’s ‘Once Upon a Time’, Beautiful and Creative #Fashion #Video #KeiraKnightly

Since I am in the throes of viewing runway video, I thought I would bring you a Chanel treat.

Chanel

Me think Karl Lagerfeld aspires to be more of a director and less art director.

With ‘Once Upon a Time’ Lagerfeld shows a forgotten time splashed with idealism, the sweet hopes of a new business, high society vs. the everyday Parisienne, and dazzles with his collection of Chanel for men and women.

Step into the turn of the century with Keira Knightly as Coco Chanel and enjoy a delightful piece showcasing talent and fashion.

Mert & Marcus for Septembers ‘Interview’ Magazine #Sexy #Supermodels #MertMarcus

o-KATE-570

You cannot do better than hiring the geniuses that are Mert & Marcus in my book of people to shoot models. Their campaigns are brilliant, full of life, always sexy and trump the competition.

This September Mert & Marcus have taken over the cover of ‘Interview’ magazine to shoot the top supermodels in the industry. In a series of seven different covers depicting each model solo and in black & white the pictorial is striking. Inside you will find revealing confessionals from runway goddess featured. From Naomi to Daria to Linda you cannot miss buying ‘Interview’, even if it’s only for their covers.

‘Etro’ for What Ails you, 2013/14 Fall/Winter Collection

Etro Fall Winter by Mario Testino

ETRO Fall Winter 2013 by Mario Testino

After covering Chanel and giving the classic side of fashion for fall, it seemed appropriate to give you ladies and gents an eyeful of Fall madness as well.

The ETRO label has always had an eye for creativity in design. Giving us a taste of their brilliance for fall, their designs encompass color and print with angular edges and futuristic diva-tude. They are all about flair and dare and leave the conventional behind.

Helmed by Gimmo Etro, who started the label in 1968, these designs are an alternative to the sullen colors of fall we often see. Think of ETRO as the cure to all your fall blues, scarlet’s and blacks.

Think you can embrace the insanity? ETRO does too. Check out the runway below.

Not only is Paris the ‘City of Lights’ but to those of us who have spent time there, it is a city of fashion & architecture. And the people at Dior know that.

Hence, this lovely editorial of fabulous, lushly dressed models, Anastasia Ivanova, Daria Strokous, Iselin Steiro, Marie Piovesan and shot by the ever talented, Willy Vanderperre. It’s been out since May 29th, so in case you missed it’s release, here is your weekend dose of fashion elite!

For those readers hooked on the song in this video, the track is ‘Synrise’ by the Belgian band GOOSE. You can download it off iTunes and Amazon. Support good fashion, good music and good taste by doing just that.

‘United Scandinavia’ by Patrick Demarchelier in Scandinavia SSAW Magazine #Gorgeous #TeamSweden #Editorial

I am very proud to say I am Swedish. My Grandmother came over from Goteborg, Sweden (pronounced yotee-boree if you can believe it) in the 1920’s and passed on her heritage and awesome cheekbones to my mother and I. So when you see a mad genius like Patrick Demarchelier do a shoot for Scandinavia SSAW Magazine with our favorite Swedish supermodel, Frida Gustavsson, and super sexy Dane, Josephine Skriver, I HAVE TO share.

Louis Vuitton Campaign Ad/Video, Controversial? #ProstitueChic #Feminism #Model #Gorgeous #NSFW #Video

I have seen a million campaign ad’s for fashion houses. Some are well done and some, complete crap. Some have artistic quality and some are just lewd.

7March2013-Louis-Vuitton-AW-Womens-Fashion-Show

This campaign video, by Louis Vuitton, is beautiful, chic, naughty, sexual and deliciously done.

Supposedly, and hear this by proxy of the HuffPost, feminist’ are up in arms about it due to it ‘glamorizing prostitution’. Being a feminist and being a strong-willed little fire starter myself I don’t buy the hype. It is sex, sex with a side of sexy. It also mad me really want the lingerie collection for AW 2013.

Like now.
