Isabeli Fontana Vogue Mexico September 2011
Or should I say Septiembre? Whatever language I say it in, this >Vogue Mexico cover is definitely my favourite of September 2011 (though it’s actually part of a three page gatefold). Fashion stylist Sarah Gore Reeves put top model Isabeli Fontana in one of my favourite dresses from Louis Vuitton‘s Fall/Winter 2011 collection. The killer compilation of talent was further loaded by Marcin Tyszka on lens and John Paul Tran on art direction.

Breakfast at Tiffanys
Fred, darling! Let us celebrate a film that has captured hearts for over fifty years with this edition of Look for Less, shall we? Wing out your eyeliner and settle down with your Audrey Hepburn poster for a Breakfast at Tiffany’s look that will make anyone believe you had been making several trips to the powder room.

  First things first, the LBD (little black dress). This simple LBD from Target for £17 is the perfect piece to kick things off! Structure, quality…bargain.

  One of Holly Golightly‘s many trademarks – kitten heels! <a href=”Styluxe’s Pointed Toe Kitten Heel is on sale for£8.

  As Miss Golightly would say, “You could always tell what kind of a person a man thinks you are by the earrings he gives you. I must say, the mind reels.” These Classic Black Cubic Zirconium Studs say style and savvy, obviously, as they are only £7!

  With a black-based look, it’s all about the statement jewellery! This multi-strand of black beads and pearls packs a glamourous punch and is only going to set you back £8.

Megan Fox Armani Raw Food

  • Ever wondered how Megan Fox got that body for her Armani ads? “For a year and a half, until about four months ago, I followed a strict vegan diet based on raw fruits and vegetables, no bread, sugar and coffee, but I had lost too much weight. So now I eat a bit of everything. I train three times a week doing circuit training with my trainer Harvey Pasternak.”
  • Brioni is ending its womenswear line! Quel horreur! Not only is Brioni’s Italian manufacturing plant shutting down in September, but their contract with the label’s creative director, Alessandro Dell’Acqua, is coming to a definite end.
  • Though it is still a “fashion rumour”, there is talk going around that Lady Gaga is going to collaborate on a fashion line with her younger sister, Natali Germanotta (Lady-in-Waiting Gaga?). Natali is currently a design student at the Fashion Institute of Technology – the mega-school that has helped developed such talents as Isabel Toledo, Calvin Klein, and Carolina Herrera. Their collection will be comprised of diva-worthy designs that could be categorized under ‘ladylike with a twist‘. Instead of meat dresses, think of a “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” wardrobe with innovative materials.
  • Nelson Mandela is launching a clothing line, too?! That is enough to pique anyone’s interest. Apparently, the former South African president’s charitable foundation has recently launched a clothing line that will donate all proceeds to fundraising efforts towards HIV research. The line, called 46664 (the number Mandela wore during his 27 years of imprisonment), is economic genius; made solely from South African-produced textiles, the four factories that make the apparel are all located in South Africa and employ over 1,500 people. Sartorial sustainability. Go, Mandela, go!
  • Kim Kardashian Wedding Dress

  • Kim Kardashian’s wedding – which was solely black & white in hue – was awesome. I may also be starting a new career as a wedding make-up psychic.

  • The rumour mill is a-whirl with thoughts that Marc Jacobs is going to be taking over at Dior. Strange choice, really. In that change, he would be leaving the handlebars of Louis Vuitton to Phoebe Philo (which is pure genius), though she would still be designing for Celine, as well.
  • According to Forbes, Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady are the world’s highest-paid celebrity couple in 2011. Bundchen earned $45 million between May 2010 and May 2011 and Brady signed a four-year, $72 million contract extension last September with the New England Patriots as well as bringing home $31 million. Oh hello, green-eyed Kanye West.
  • Since we’ve all been wondering what Filipa Fino will be working on after her departure as Vogue’s Senior Accessories Editor, her rep just revealed that she is going to “launch a new digital proposition that will have the world see fashion as a complement to accessories, as opposed to the conventional other way around.” O rly?
  • For the first time, Tory Burch is going to design tuxedos. They will be available exclusively at her Madison Avenue flagship, opening in September.

    “A great tuxedo is modern and timeless for evening. My mother often wore her Yves Saint Laurent le smoking, and my father was known for his dinner jackets lined with silk Hermès scarves. Always superchic.”
