Style of the Week: Diane Kruger

Diane Kruger looks simply breathtaking in a stunning gown from Elie Saab’s Couture Collection for 2011. Stepping out on the red carpet at ‘The Ides of March’ movie premiere at the 68th Annual Venice Film Festival, Diane lets the dress do all the talking by keeping accessories to a minimum and keeping her makeup clean and simple. Love this!


Lusting After Lace!

Remember the Mango lace dress I have been lusting after for months!? Well its almost in stores and I honestly can’t contain my excitement at getting my hands on it. But I really hope I’m not jinxing myself and that it sells out before I can get my hands on it. So here’s a note to all my blog readers; please if you see it in stores, let me know!!

The dress is part of Mango’s stunning Fall Collection which is modeled by the gorgeous Isabeli Fontana. She replaces Scarlett Johansson as the face of the brand. Photographed by Terry Richardson, these seductive shots taken in Paris are full on glamour and by far one of the best highstreet campaigns I’ve seen yet.

Dior’s Blue Tie Collection

Dior’s latest “Blue Tie” collection for Fall has gotten me in the mood for some seriously sexy smokey eye makeup and an urge to hot foot it to the nearest club to dance until my feet hurt. Introducing two new shades of Nail Vernis in Blue Denim and Tuxedo, as well as eye palettes and evening essentials, this is the collection I can see myself using all the way through til New Years! Bring on the party!

Available at all Dior Beauty concessions now.

Rachel Weisz for Bulgari

There is something incredibly beautiful about Rachel Weisz and her latest advertising campaign for Bulgari captures her beauty exquisitely. Rachel takes over from Kirsten Dunst and Julianne Moore as the face of the new Bulgari Fall Winter campaign lensed by Mert & Marcus.

Wearing nothing but the goods she’s advertising, there’s a certain elegance to these shots that some up Bulgari perfectly for me. But I have to admit that lion is scaring the bejesus out of me!!

Lauren Conrad launches Paper Crown

Reality TV star, Lauren Conrad, has just launched her new clothing line Paper Crown. The youthful collection is for those who like to play dress up in a grown up world. Lauren’s designs are a modern take on classic style, with an emphasis on fit and fabric quality to create staples for the contemporary woman’s closet.

The collection is composed of romantic maxis, chic cocktail attire, menswear-inspired pieces and tailored basics. The result – an understated elegance that is both effortless and wearable.

Juicy Couture Look Book A/W 2011

You hear the words ‘Juicy Couture’ and usually the image of chavs in velour sweats is conjured up. You know the kind that carry a miniature puppy in a bright pink bag whilst they strut down the street with their G-string hanging out! Well be prepared for a shock. The Juicy Couture A/W 2011 Look Book contains no velour!!

Models Frida Gustavsson and Shannan Click are captured by photographers, Claudia Knoepfel and Stefan Indlekofer, in a collection full of girly ensembles including casual stripes, textured coats and capes, skinny jeans, tailored blazers and subtly printed dresses – a perfect transition for the season ahead.

The collection is rounded off with a range of accessories such as eyewear, bags and jewellery that will keep you smiling and looking ever-so-stylish through the colder months!

p.s. I have nothing against Juicy velours sweats. I actually like them, but there has been some SERIOUS over kill with them over the past few years.
