coquet coquette

Coquet coquette, you know I won’t forget
How you kissed me strange to prove you were mythical
– “Coquet, Coquette“, Of Montreal

If there were ever a band designed to make you throw on something lacy and swing your hips around the office, it would be Of Montreal. I can never sit still when I put their music on (and I suggest you follow suit!).

What I Wore: Black peplum mini dress with lacy sleeves from China, black caged heels from Siam Square, a multi-string necklace of vintage pearls, and “16 Rouge Roxane” from YSL Rouge Pur Couture.

Rachel Zoe Luggage

Rachel Zoe's Luggage

  • Yesterday, celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe took to Twitter to show us just how overwhelming the travel process is for her. Holy hell. A gorgeous new baby boy, husband, and handfuls of clients to dress sure cause some baggage fees.

  • Supermodel entrepreneur Kate Moss has collaborated with French company ‘Fred’ to design a jewellery collection! The collection, for the LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy)-owned designer label, will include 22 exclusive pieces that have been inspired by her tattoos (there will be anchor, heart, star and crescent moon tattoo motifs).

    The collection will go on sale in Fred stores and online at Www.Fred.com starting October 1st. Prices will range from 350 euros to 35,000 euros (appropriate enough for a diamond and ruby encrusted scarf necklace!)

  • Rumours have been flying around that Raf Simons is taking over Yves Saint Laurent. It was started by the style editor of the International Herald Tribune online, Jessica Michault, who tweeted claiming that Suzy Menkes had confirmed it in a blog for the New York Times.

    It spread like wildfire, though no-one seemed to fact check the article which actually read:

    If Raf Simons ultimately takes over the helm at Yves Saint Laurent — as those familiar with the situation in Paris suggest — the designer will have found a sweet spot for his meticulous modernism.

    Although the designer was traveling back to his native Belgium and could not be reached for comment on the subject of YSL, he certainly has earned an audition for that position.

    It’s simply not happening. Stefano Pilati’s contract with YSL has already been renewed.

  • “I’m very much a cookie-cutter hipster. So, I feel a little bit bad about the fact that, essentially, I’m a hipster but I’m the only one that the rest of the world said, ‘Hey you’ve got really great style!’ But literally everyone in Williamsburg and East London has this. But you want to plunder this? Then that’s fine!” – Alexa Chung

  • Though it is four years in the making, Lauryn Hill is being sued for allegedly failing to return “an entire wardrobe of high fashion items” which were lent to her for a tour in 2007.

  • According to Page Six, Anna Wintour (editor of Vogue) has enlisted Mario Testino (super photographer) to entice Duchess Catherine (Mrs Kate Middleton) into shooting the cover of Vogue. Since Testino shot the infamously beautiful official engagement photos of Will and Kate, and attended the royal wedding as a friend of the family, this is a pretty good move from the Devil Wearing Prada. A source said:

    “Every magazine has been trying to get Kate, and many assume it will eventually be Vogue. But even with the Mario Testino relationship, it is not clear when this will happen. The Palace must approve it, and they are very protective of Kate.”

  • Model Lindsey Wixson fell at Versace, and The Daily Mail were kind enough to rehash old ‘runway falls in celebration.
  • Secreto Bosque Ymre Stiekema
    Do werk, Ymre Stiekema! For Harper’s Bazaar España‘s issue for September 2011, they Bazaar Gods (photographer Gonzalo Machado and fashion stylist Leticia Riestra) brought the beautiful model in for an ethereal photo shoot titled “Secreto en el bosque”. It’s beyond beautiful, and checking all of my clothes-lust boxes; YSL cape coat and an absolute abundance of Dior. Tick tick. View Post

    Dianna Agron 'The Late Show with David Letterman'
    Though I can’t commend her for the seasonality of it all (black velvet in August?!), I am dying over the ensemble Dianna Agron wore on the “Late Show with David Letterman” yesterday. The gorgeous sweetheart-bodiced and peplum-flounced Rosalia bonded dress is by Stella McCartney. A chic, striking look paired with the go-to appearance shoe, YSL’s Tribtoo pumps.

    My favourite thing about her ‘look’ has to be the building departure from her Glee character, Quinn Fabray. From the start of Season One/the start of Dianna’s fame, we’ve seen her in outfits that could be interchangeable with her high-school-aged character. After cutting her hair off at the end of Season Two (AESTHETIC LIBERATION!), Dianna’s personal style has been more edgy, playful, and appealing overall. You can see it in her confidence.

    Also, hot pink lipstick gets me everytime. Oh, Dianna.

    Leighton Meester LOfficiel
    IBJUBIERJNGIEJFGNE. I love seeing Leighton Meester in spreads that aren’t Photoshopped to the heavens or injected with plasti-smiles (looking at you, teen ‘magazines’). The Gossip Girl left Blair Waldorf behind for L’Officiel Lithuania‘s March issue, channeling Hepburn 2011 in a neon pink Lanvin S/S 2011 top, emerald green Jil Sander S/S 2011 skirt, pink stilettos and slick mane. The rest of the looks are a compilation of MaxMara, YSL, Gucci and Fendi: masters of la séduction facile. View Post
