IMG_2975

Have you ever known a girl who seems to have it all? Gorgeous, witty, funny, smart, big blue eyes and um… a british accent? Ugh!!! You’re hating a little aren’t you? Well stop right now, because this IT girl of the moment is all of the above and get this… She’s adorable!

with Rihanna, and having Rita Ora call her “wifey” isn’t enough, this girl is jetting around the globe for today’s biggest fashion houses such as Chanel, Oscar de la Renta, and Dolce and Gabana. She made her debut as an “angel” at the 2012 Victoria Secret Fashion Show which catapulted her star even more. Her older sister Poppy was already in the modeling business, and with that kind of bone structure, Cara had to follow. She’s often been referred to as the “next” Kate Moss. This girl has been the face of DKNY, H&M, Burberry and most recently Mulberry.

All of those amazing credentials aside, this model has crept steadily into social media, and is now followed millions. How can a model become such a mainstream success? It’s all in her personality. She’s not afraid to post pictures of herself in giant hot dog costumes and letting her ugly side show. She’s therefore a lot more relatable then all of those unattainable beauties, who seem to never EVER have a bad day. Cara we can’t wait to see where your very bright future takes you!

Do you have what it takes to be an “It” girl? 😉

Met Gala 2013 “PUNK: From Chaos to Couture”

With a different theme every year, and hosted by fashion magazine Vogue in New York City, the Met Ball or Met Gala is the fashion world’s best red carpet event with an exclusive guest lists of stars, models, designers, and Hollywood’s A-list.

JLawrence&SJP

This year, the theme Punk: from Chaos to Couture added more edge to the gala event with celebrities wowing us with leather, lace, studs and even punk hairdo and make-up. This is what happens when Punk meets Couture … Can anybody say AWESOME?!

THE BEST DRESSED:

Nina Dobrev looked stunning in a black Monique Lhuillier gown.

Rooney Mara, breathtaking in this Ricardo Tisci for Givenchy. The combination of lace and zipper gave it the perfect sexy edge twist.

Emma Watson looking impeccable as always in Prabal Gurung. Hermione who?

It girl of the moment Cara Delevingne in an also plunging V-neck studded dress from Burberry.

THE DECEPTION:

Gwyneth Paltrow in a hot pink gown by Valentino. I think she could be a little sexier, especially after that great fighting scene in iron man 3. Her abs were rock solid, so she can pull off wearing less.

Kerry Washington in Vera Wang. The leather glove is very sexy but the combination of gloves, lace, and floral print dress is a little too much.

Elle Fanning in Rodarte. Not a big fan of the full Tye-die skirt … Like other critics have said, it looks like she just came back from summer camp.

ElleFanning_Rodarte

Chloe Sevigny in Proenza Schouler. A bit deceiving and boring for a fashionista.

The Olsen twins.

Ashley Olsen in Vintage Dior and Mary-Kate Olsen in Vintage Chanel. Girls, we all know your styles are very different and unique, but what is up with that orange parachute and fur kimono ?

THE SHOW-STOPPERS:

We added this category to highlight some of the celebrities that managed to catch our full attention, whether it be good or not so fabulous.

Beyonce in Givenchy. This may not be her best dress but Queen Bee looks literally like she’s on FIRE!

Katy Perry was definitely out there from her crown, to her cross-shaped earrings to the thousands of beads featured in her Dolce & Gabanna dress making up a religious design from the mosaics of Sicily’s cathedral.

Madonna in Givenchy. With just fishnet stockings and no pants on, Madonna arrived on the red carpet leaving us all in astonishment as usual.

And of course style icon Sarah Jessica Parker in a gorgeous abstract print gown by  Giles Deacon and with PhillipTracy head piece that had us all stop and stare.

WTF moment:
KIM!!!!! I wish I didn’t have to be rude, but come on! There was nothing remotely okay about this dress. Pregnant women glow, but even that couldn’t save this travesty. Guess it’s another way for this sister to steal the spotlight …

PUNK BEAUTY:

ROONEY MARA pulled her hair slick back with a clear complexion, big strong brows and bold dark lips.
JENIFER LOPEZ looking fierce with her pompadour hair style, smokey eyes, and natural glowing skin.

KRISTEN STEWART looked stunning in dark red smokey eyes.
NICOLE RICHIE pulled of her snowy bouffant hair do.

RED

I remember as a little girl on family occasions, I would get a red marks on my cheeks from older family members who would leave their lipstick mark when kissing me. Growing up as a young teenager I avoided red shades and anything too bright due to the fear of looking like “ma tante Clémence” and concentrated more on lip gloss as they were “the cool thing to wear” at the time.

Looking back, I asked myself what was I thinking? I am not a fan of lip gloss at all especially the clear ones. In my opinion they make you look like you were eating spaghetti or any greasy food and did not clean your mouth after.

The truth is there is something empowering when a woman wears a nice lipstick. Doesn’t have to be red necessarily any shades of pinks or beige will do but many of us girls hesitate at times when it comes to wearing red lipstick. But I personally love red lipstick and anyone who knows me, knows it’s my signature.

The key to choosing the right shade of red is all in the tone of your skin. If you have a warm tone choose a red with a orange undertones, and if you have a cool tone to your skin, red shades with blue undertones are best. Now if you’re lucky enough to have neutral skin tone, you can go for whatever shades you love.

Some of my favorites shades I own:

Sephora Lipstain, Deborah Milano Mat Red, L'Oreal Infallible Refined Ruby #337,  Chanel Rouge Allure Passion #14, Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss, Dior Addict Red Desire #959, MAC Russian Red, and Bourjois So Rouge

“I started to sketch in St. Tropez over the summer and it was so hot I wanted some fresh air.” And so Karl Lagerfeld once again let his imagination take over and this time, transformed the catwalk into a solar panel with gigantic wind turbines.

Last Week’s Favorite

Twenty-2 jewelry designer Coraline Bennett Acra was spotted wearing a vintage skeleton T-shirt with basic satin cream trousers. For accessories, the Fashionista opted for a Chanel quilted bag, Tod’s navy blue sandals and was wearing her own creation of sea green necklace with a gold chain.

Her sense of fashion is not only reflected in her outfit, but in that of her adorable son Reza. He wore a plain white Tee, 7 Jeans and red Tod’s Gommino Suede Driving Moccasins.
