YASSSSSSSSSSSSS: Tilda Swinton for NARS Spring 2015

NARS Eye-Opening-Act-Campaign-Tilda-Swinton-Image

Forgive my immature post title, but I just couldn’t help it. NARS has just announced Tilda “Glorious” Swinton as the face of the brand’s Spring 2015 campaign, and I love this SO hard! Also, I can’t stop staring at this first of four portraits of Tilda, shot by NARS Founder and Creative Director, François Nars. Doesn’t she look FIERCE? I try not to use that word often, but she looks fierce and striking, and I’m all over this collab.

Here’s what Tilda had to say about this exciting news:  “I met François only recently when he asked to photograph me for his book, having long been an admirer of his from afar for many years. I liked him immensely and immediately and we were eager, from that first session, to do more things together. I could not be more proud to call him my colleague. Now I understand why his work is so fresh and original, because he is so bright and has such a sweet heart.”

More details will be released in the coming months, but I’m already on board. I don’t need to know what she’s selling, because I’m buying it…whatever IT is. What about you? Are you excited about Tilda x NARS? Share in the comments.

What I Wore: It’s a Cape, It’s a Coat!

I am conflicted about fall. There’s a number of things I dislike about it (waking up in the dark, cold weather, rainy days), but sometimes the stars align and you get such a perfect autumn day that it makes you forget all about the negatives (and the inevitable winter).

On one of those perfect fall days (cool, but sunny) I finally got to wear my beloved H&M Studio Fall 2014 cape jacket, and it was lovely. The coat kept me warm, while those cape sleeves let my body breathe without feeling like I’m being roasted alive. It’s a keeper, I tells you! I also got to wear my knee-high boots for the first time this season…I didn’t wear them nearly enough last year. And there you have it…just a couple of weeks ago, I was all about summery dresses, and now I am fully into fuzzy, furry, warm outerwear. Isn’t Canadian weather fun? And by fun, I mean unpredictable and completely nuts.

What They Wore: Chanel No. 5 “The One That I Want” Party

Chanel-No5-Crystal-Renn

Speaking of amazing parties…What I wouldn’t give to be a fly on the wall at this CHANEL bash! Earlier this week, the brand celebrated the release of the latest CHANEL No 5 “The One That I Want” ad campaign, shot by Baz Luhrmann, and starring Gisele Bundchen. And while the short film is definitely mesmerizing, this time, I couldn’t take my eyes off the stylish attendees instead. Just look at Crystal Renn! That gown! That hair! That makeup! So damn beautiful! And Poppy Delevingne! I’m in love with her kaleidoscopic dress and bright clutch. Granted, I’m not as obsessed with Poppy as I am with Crystal, but finally seeing pieces from the CHANEL Dubai Cruise 2015 collection outside of the context of a fashion show is definitely making my heart beat faster. Here’s hoping more celebs will wear these stunners to red carpet premieres and such – SO much potential here.

As for the belle of the ball – Gisele – well, she looked beautiful, of course, as she always does, but my heart belongs to Crystal Renn and her starry gown, and her fierce eyebrows, and her flawless face. Dear Karl, I nominate Crystal for the next CHANEL campaign. Please and thank you.

Hermès Masculine Spirit Party in Toronto

As I learned a couple of years ago, the folks at Hermès sure do know how to throw a party. Last week, despite the torrential downpour, over 600 stylish Torontonians showed up to the brand’s Masculine Spirit party at the Distillery District to celebrate Hermès Men’s Universe Autumn/Winter 2014. Guests were invited to view a leather jacket retrospective, walk through a Leandro Erlich-designed mazelike fitting room installation, watch a curious performance by two twins, check out the exquisite pieces from the new collection, and pose for a photo gif booth.

We feasted on delicious nibbles and cocktails, admired the very attractive male models circling the room, and simply had a blast…as one does at an Hermès bash. And while there were no unicorn tattoos this time around, the amount of fun we had planning our poses for the gif booth more than made up for it. How do you spell fun? H-E-R-M-E-S!
