Wednesday Candy: Kit Harington for Jimmy Choo

Kit Harington for Jimmy Choo Fall Winter 2014

It’s been a weird week. Since Canada Day fell on a Tuesday this year, today feels more like a Monday rather than a Wednesday. Luckily, it’s not a Monday, and we only have a few days to go until it’s Friday again. And to celebrate, we have these new shots of Kit Harington’s latest campaign for Jimmy Choo. Jon Snow may not know much, but he sure does know how to look hot and moody. Frankly, I couldn’t care less about the shoes on his feet, so I don’t know if this is effective advertising, but I am certainly not going to complain!

Have a great Wednesday and enjoy some more Kit Harington hotness after the jump!

Lupita Nyong’o Covers American VOGUE

lupita-nyongo-vogue-cover

Finally an American VOGUE cover I can get excited about! After the disaster that was Kimye cover, I was so pleased to see the gorgeous Lupita Nyong’o on the cover of the July 2014 issue. And while the styling of the cover itself is pretty blah, her beauty radiates and improves it tenfold. Luckily, the rest of the photos are much better. Set in Marrakech, this shoot really inspired me to look into packing my bags and jetting off to Morocco for a week – to explore the bazaars, chill at the hammam, and just lounge around looking drop-dead-gorgeous and Lupita-like. I mean…that photo of her on the couch…she looks incredible!

So there you have it…first VOGUE puts a reality TV famewhore on the cover, and then follows up with an uber-talented loveliest and smartest actress around…Colour me confused. But since an American VOGUE cover is till a huge deal (sorry, Victoria Beckham), this is yet another win for Lupita, who’s already had a pretty kick-ass year so far. You go, girl!

Style Fille: Emily Blunt

Emily-Blunt-Osman-edge-of-tomorrow

Last week, I was invited to attend the Toronto premiere of Edge of Tomorrow – the latest Tom Cruise action flick set in the dystopian future. I went to the screening, not expecting anything extraordinary, and was actually wowed by two things…

1. Tom Cruise…actual Tom Cruise showed up at the theater, gave a little speech, and took a “selfie” with the audience (yours truly included). So random, but also pretty cool.

2. How much I actually loved the movie. While I won’t spoil it for you, I have to say that the premise – Groundhog Day meets the Matrix – was mind-blowingly good, and Emily Blunt was even better. I simply can’t get enough of strong female protagonists and Blunt as “Full Metal Bitch” was perfection. Strong, smart, beautiful, and not at all Cruise’s “spear-carrier”. If you’re looking for a thrilling summer blockbuster, this is it. I actually want to see it again, that’s how fun it was.

But let’s look at Emily Blunt’s just as thrilling wardrobe choices that she selected for her 24-hour London/Paris/New York whirlwind premiere circuit. First up, she wore a sweet, printed Osman dress to the London premiere, leaving her hair and makeup soft, and looking like the antithesis of “Full Metal Bitch”. Next up, she leathered-up in a David Koma skirt and top combo at the Paris screening. And while I actually loved this edgy combo (though maybe not those shoes), my favourite of the three was the glam Prada gown that she wore in New York. It was classic, and sexy, and just perfect for her. I also loved the fuchsia lip colour, and the pink pair of shoes that she chose to wear with her scarlet frock. Red and pink look so fresh together, and much better than the boring/expected red and black.

So what about you? Did you like Emily’s three red carpet looks? Which of the three is your fave? Share in the comments.

Style Fille: Cate Blanchett in Cannes 2014

cate-blanchett-delpozo-cannes-2014

The moment I saw that Delpozo outfit that Cate Blanchett wore at Cannes this year, I knew I had to post about it. I am freaking IN LOVE with this entire look, but if I could just get my hands on that top, I would wear it all the time…ALL THE TIME! So after my initial OMFGINEEDTHISSHELOOKSSOGOOD freakout was over, I decided to see what else Cate The Great wore at Cannes, and here it is…or rather here they are – three looks from one festival – all perfect.

Apart from the casual-ish Delpozo look, Cate also wore a stunning Givenchy gown that stole my heart away, and an elaborate Valentino creation that I suppose could look a bit boring and been-there-done-that, but not on Cate. Somehow, whatever this woman wears ends up looking better, more regal, more expensive… And thus, I love all three looks. Do you? Tell me which Cannes outfit is your fave in the comments, and if you see that scalloped Delpozo top on sale (or a similar one), please give me a shout. I NEED IT IN MY LIFE!
