Probably my favourite look from Leighton Meester as of late was the ensemble she wore to attend a screening of ‘The Woman Dress’. The film was a short, directed by Giada Colagrande, that was part of a series of films that explore women’s love affair with Miu Miu. Leighton’s Prada Spring/Summer 2012 dress was a divine choice for her shape, and an unexpected choice for a Miu Miu event.
The version she wore had a deeper plunge and an altered print to the runway version, but the lemon-coloured skirt was untouched. I think I actually prefer this bodice to the runway version.
For the beginning of Fashion Week, Leighton attended the amfAR New York Gala wearing a Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2012 dress. This dress was one of my favourites of the season, so I am ecstatic that Leighton ended up wearing it on the red carpet. Critics, however, seem to have quite a problem with her hair at this event.
A garment perhaps a little too fashion-forward for such soft, feminine curls? The Louis Vuitton sequined bag she carried was gorgeous, but I may have to agree, the hair and shoes weren’t as edgy as I would hope for with the styling of this dress.
On her way to Vera Wang’s show for Autumn/Winter 2012, Leighton wore a Stella McCartney A/W 2010 Coat, green printed Vera Wang V-Neck Dress, yellow Giuseppe Zanotti Cutout Suede Sandals, and the Bvlgari Serpenti handag. Street style at it’s best – the ‘girly curls’ really work here.
Oddly enough, the same day I made a note to draft a “Cruella de Vil-inspired fashion post”, this beautiful shooot from Tatler Russia ended up in my inbox! Using Monica Bellucci as a modern Cruella of sorts, Francesco Escalar‘s photos for “Итальянка в законе“perfectly outline the fiction brought to reality. A hint of danger mixed with major excess (thanks in large part to the fashion styling of Anya Ziourova).
It is rare to find impeccable fashion shown with a sense of humour, which is why I have fallen in love with “Remake Couture” in L’Officiel October 2011. Definitely one of my favourite spreads of the year. Marie José Jalou‘s fashion styling is magnificent, and Jean-Daniel Lorieux was the perfect choice to snap up Tanya Dziahileva‘s – supremely underrated – beauty. “Emma W, Carmen, and Charlotte” also feature in diverse, Ugly Stepsister-esque roles with perfection. Right-click, set as background.
While model-on-white can be incredibly boring, photographer Zee Nunes has managed to ‘capture the light’ (ooh, the light!) so well that the photos on offer for the November 2011 issue of Harper’s Bazaar Brasil have become extraordinarily dynamic. Thanks, in large part, to the fashion styling of Renata Correa, I simply can’t take my eyes off of Shirley Mallmann. Fashion power. View Post
Jessica Wright - In Love With Fashion
It seems pretty strange that though I don’t watch The Only Way Is Essex
, as soon as I had received the invitation the Jessica Wright
‘s boutique launch, I knew who she was. As one of the more fashion-forward
and sweet-natured cast members of ‘TOWIE’ (as judged by her media representation), I was very intrigued to see what her boutique ‘With Love, Jessica
‘ had in store.
It was Jessica to a tee. The lingerie boutique not only features some of the girliest, sweetly seductive undergarments around (from Caprice, Melissa Odabash, Alexis Smith, etc), but it also showcased her brand new clothing capsule collection with LOVE.
There are seven pieces for Jessica Wright for Love; two bodices, three dresses, and two skirts. All glamorous enough to please the Essex crowd, without going over the top. (I think the nude bodice is a must-have, for me, after seeing it on Jessica herself).
So, enjoy the TOWIE-tastic photos from the launch (including my gorgeous assistant, Yeshna, with Arg – her dream man!) and head down to ‘With Love’ (at 148 Loughton High Road, Loughton, Essex, IG10 4BE) if you’re looking for lusciously lady-friendly shopping!
