altuzarra-for-target-fall-2014

Huge news! Target has just announced their latest designer collaboration, and this time it’s with Joseph Altuzarra! Altuzarra for Target collection will be launching on September 14, 2014, and will include more than 30 items, ranging in price from $17.99 to $89.99 for apparel, and $29.99 to $79.99 for shoes and accessories. The collection will be sold at most Target stores in the United States and Canada, with an edited assortment available globally at NET-A-PORTER.COM.

“As a designer, I believe firmly in the transformative power of fashion. It has the ability to not only change how you look, but also how you feel,” said Joseph Altuzarra, the brand’s designer and creative director. “I’ve admired the elegance that Target brings to fast fashion. By working together on this capsule collection, we hope to instill a sense of power, confidence and beauty in women everywhere.”

Fans of the brand include celebs like Lady Mary (aka Michelle Dockery), Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Cameron Diaz, among many others, and I am really looking forward to seeing what the collab will actually look like. I’ve wanted to buy a pair of Altuzarra heels for a while now, and perhaps now, I can get a pair on the cheap! Are you excited about this collab? 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!

Wednesday Candy: Joel Kinnaman

joel-kinnaman-hm-fall-wintere-2012-13-ad-campaign-glamour-boys-inc-1

Last week, le bf and I watched RoboCop, and surprisingly, it was pretty good! It was entertaining, with a not-too-cray-cray plot, and most importantly, with Joel Kinnaman as RoboCop. If you’re not familiar with this tall and hunky Swede, perhaps the name Stephen Holder might ring a bell. As in Detective Holder of The Killing series? I don’t know about you, but I didn’t even realize that the two were the same person until I saw the credits, because in The Killing, Kinnaman plays Holder as this sharp-tongued scruffy man-child, while in RoboCop he’s all heat and brawn, and he doesn’t even look like the same person! And while I still found The Killing’s dirty unshaven Kinnaman hot, when he wears a suit, well…the man cleans up quite nicely.

Most recently, Kinnaman made headlines because of his split from longtime girlfriend Olivia Munn, and while I do think that the two made quite a hot couple, I wouldn’t mind a little Holder/Linden action especially since season 4 filming just wrapped (even if Mireille Enos is already taken).

For the rest of the week, I’ll be catching up on some older Joel Kinnaman films, both to feed my obsession and…well, to gawk at how good-looking he is. Don’t judge!

So tell me, are you a Joel Kinnaman fan? Do you watch The Killing? Share in the comments!

What They Wore: Celeb Looks from Met Gala 2014

liu-wen-zac-posen-met-gala-dress-2014

What’s more important – adhering to a dress code or bringing something fresh to the red carpet? Last night at the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, some celebs decided to pay homage to the celebrated American designer Charles James, while others chose to wear something exciting instead. No shade to James, but after seeing one too many taffeta-clad celebs, I cheered when I glimpsed Lupita Nyong’o’s Prada amazingness. Sure, it wasn’t exactly inspired by Charles James, but it was fun to look at, and if anyone could pull off the bejeweled net dress with feathers, it’s Lupita. Same goes for Kirsten Dunst’s Rodarte Star Wars gown – amazing, and probably not the most appropriate for that particular theme, but still…so cool! Another look I couldn’t resist last night was Chloe Sevigny in Kenzo, which was probably much too modern for last night’s theme, but I loved it all the same.

But it wasn’t solely the rebels that caught my eye, I absolutely adored Liu Wen in a Zac Posen stunner (which I just got to see at Holts last week!), Emmy Rossum in a floral Carolina Herrera gown, Giovanna Battaglia in an 0ff-the-shoulder Dolce & Gabbana, and Hailee Steinfeld in a very theme-(and age)-appropriate black, white, and pink Prabal Gurung gown.

Mostly though, I was underwhelmed with last night’s red carpet looks. My favourite Style Fille Diane Kruger looked washed out in pale blue (though Joshua more than made up for it!), SJP disappointed in a messy Oscar de la Renta, Johnny Depp came dressed as Colonel Sanders, Kate Upton, who isn’t exactly a high-fashion darling, looked frumpy in a Dolce & Gabbana gown, and the rest of the lot just looked…been-there-wore-that.

What do you think of last night’s Met Gala red carpet? Which celebs got it right in your opinion? Share in the comments!

Lupita Nyong’o is Most Beautiful!

lupita-nyongo-people-magazine-most-beautiful-woman

Lupita Nyong’o has had quite a year so far! She bagged an Oscar, landed a Lancôme campaign, and now, she gets to reign as People Magazine’s Most Beautiful Woman. What an incredible run for this inspiring woman. What I find most compelling about Lupita is how truly grateful she seems about every single bit of recognition. I love that she chooses to project a very positive and encouraging message every time she speaks. And I love how smart this woman is. Of course, she’s gorgeous and stylish to boot, but it’s her inner beauty that captured the adoration of both Hollywood and the world. Here’s hoping that she gets some great roles worthy of her talent soon. Come on, Hollywood!

Alexander Wang x H&M Collection To Launch in November 2014!

alexander-wang-h&m-collection-coachella-2

Happy Monday, lovelies! And it’s a happy one indeed, because this weekend it was announced that the next H&M designer collaboration will be with none other than Alexander Wang! Launching on November 6, 2014, the Alexander Wang x H&M collection will feature apparel and accessories for men and women and will be available at 250 stores worldwide! The announcement party at Coachella looked like a blast, with celebs like Alexander Skarsgard, Kate Bosworth, Iggy Azalea, Fergie and Katy Perry in attendance.

As the first American designer to ever team up with H&M for a designer collaboration, Alexander Wang says, “I am honoured to be a part of H&M’s designer collaborations. The work with their team is an exciting, fun process. They are very open to pushing boundaries and to setting a platform for creativity. This will be a great way for a wider audience to experience elements of the Alexander Wang brand and lifestyle.”

To me, this collab makes a lot of sense, because of Wang’s cool, youthful aesthetic, which will certainly appeal to the majority of H&M’s clientelle, and I can’t wait to see which direction this collection will take. Here’s hoping for some cool leather bags, fun sunglasses, body-con dresses with strategically-placed cut-outs and draping, and of course some hot heels too!

Michelle Williams for Louis Vuitton Spring 2014 Ad Campaign

Michelle-Williams-Spring-2014-Louis-Vuitton-Handbag-Campaign (13)

As you may or may not know, I was OBSESSED with Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2013 ads featuring Michelle Williams. She looked so beautiful, that I was a bit worried that she might steal all of the attention away from the bags with those perfect brows, chic hair, and red lips. But I was wrong! Apparently sales were so good that Louis Vuitton asked Michelle to appear in their spring campaign as well. And boy is it a great follow-up! Styled by Carine Roitfeld and photographed by Peter Lindbergh, Michelle looks like spring personified with bold lips in various shades of pink, her hair lightly tousled, and those gorge Louis Vuitton bags (Lockit, Capucines, and Alma) on prominent display.

And while I am still as obsessed with Michelle’s beauty as I was back in July, this time around, she did manage to inspire me to put a pair of colourful LV luggage cases on my dream wishlist. If only to arrange them as the chicest seat in my house.

Wednesday Candy: Theo James

Theo-James-Vanity-Fair

I don’t know if I should be embarrassed by this or not, but I watched Divergent…and I liked it. Having read the books a while back, my expectations for the movie were pretty low. While the first book was good, the rest of the trilogy left me pretty cold, but after watching the movie, it really doesn’t matter, because I’ll still be tuning in for the next two (or three) Divergent movies, mostly because…Theo James.

Four was not my favourite character, but after seeing Theo as Four, I am sold. Theo is super hot, yes, but you can just tell that underneath the brawn, there’s a sense of humour there…and depth too. Also, I just started watching Downton Abbey, and was really excited to see him pop up in the series too…alas for a very brief, but memorable stint.

So there you have it…my new Brit obsession – Theo James. Are you as into him as I am? Share in the comments, and happy Wednesday!

First Look at Kristen Stewart for CHANEL Ads

kristen-stewart-braids-chanel-dallas-ad

Late last year, it was announced that Kristen Stewart was the next actress and beautiful face to work with the iconic house of CHANEL. And now we have the first sneak peek images of Stewart as the face of CHANEL’s Paris-Dallas collection. I have to admit to feeling a bit skeptical when the news was first announced, but now, after seeing these gorgeous (if kind of blurry) photos, I am drinking the Kool-Aid! From the kick-ass hair and makeup, to the awesome styling, to Stewart’s “don’t give a f***” face, I am all over this campaign, and am definitely looking forward to seeing higher res versions of these photos. Also…who do I sell my soul to in order to get my hands on that starry dress?! Le sigh.

But what about you? Are you down with Stewart working with CHANEL? Share in the comments.
