I worship the Summer/Pre-Fall 2011 lookbook for Tory Burch. It is the brand, from the casually colourful clothing to the always amazing accessories (alliteration, alliteration!). Heather Marks and Ali Stephens work really well together, and Ali’s ever-present Megan Fox snarl actually works against this ‘Kate Middleton style‘ makeover. View Full Post
Sun Fei Fei looks absolutely incredible on the June 2011 cover of Harper’s Bazaar Singapore. With sartorial Swan Queen stylist results courtesy of Kenneth Goh, Gan has captured one of my favourite covers of the past few months.
These are going to be some of the most recycled photos of the year, I’m sure. Both Michelle and Barack Obama visited Buckingham Palace today per The Queen’s invite to a two day State Visit. Michelle was wearing a lavender-pink cropped jacket over her a-line Barbara Tfank Resort 2011 dress. Sticking to her style formula, Kate Middleton dressed in the “Shola” bandage dress by high-street retailer Reiss. And yes, it is already sold out.
Fashion TV just made my dreams come true by combining two of my favourite things – travel and fashion. You guessed it; the world’s first Fashion Hotel. Last Friday, the network signed an agreement with Mohammed Al Habtoor, Vice Chairman/CEO of the Al Habtoor Group, to establish a fashion-dedicated escape in Dubai.
Though more hotels are set to follow, the first Fashion Hotel will be 30 storeys tall with a modular exterior displaying 24 hour Fashion TV highlights on the world’s largest 100 metre LED screen. On the interior, it was have 200 rooms equipped with the most sophisticated climate control, lighting, 3D and audio-video technologies. In addition a 50,000 itemed Fashion DVD Library will be on offer, also making it the biggest in the world.
Amenities include a 60-storey retail shopping area, nightclub, spa, gym, studio for photo and movie shoots, hair parlor, and a theme restaurant called “Cathedral of Shoes“. I’m in.
“For years, we have wanted to create the ultimate fashion-themed hotel, aimed at providing Fashion TV viewers, models and businessmen and women with a memorable fashion experience. It’s a great pleasure to sign an agreement with Mohammed Al Habtoor, to share this vision and make this fantastic, global project a reality. Hotel experiences will no longer be the same. It’s an exceptional project and one which is likely to have a massive impact on Dubai, making it the future fashion capital of the world. The city will certainly never be the same again.”
– Michael Adam, President of Fashion TV
As soon as Cannes wraps, we have yet another (entirely different) ‘red carpet‘ to break down: last night’s 2011 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. Six ladies really stood out for me.
First, Taylor Swift in a luminous, embellished nude Elie Saab gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. Practically perfect in every way.
