Lily-Rose Depp in CHANEL Pearl Eyewear Collection Campaign

lily-rose-depp-chanel-pearl-eyewear-collection-sunglasses-2015
Lily-Rose Depp has just landed her first CHANEL Campaign, so it’s safe to say that if you didn’t know who she was before, you will now. With parents like the forever-chic Vanessa Paradis and once-upon-a-time heartthrob Johnny Depp, this is certainly not the last we’ll see of the beautiful young actress, but what a campaign to debut with!

Karl Lagerfeld had this to say about choosing the newest CHANEL ambassador for the Pearl eyewear collection campaign: “Lily-Rose is stunning, she’s a young girl from a new generation with all the qualities of a star”. She certainly is. Some actors just have that je ne sais quoi, and Lily-Rose has it in spades – the looks, the charisma, and now, that coveted CHANEL campaign!

Speaking of CHANEL…the Pearl eyewear pieces are just stunning! Round frames embellished with pearls and finished with rose-coloured tint – I’m already obsessed!

So what do you think of Lily-Rose as the face of CHANEL Pearl eyewear collection? Are you loving the sunnies? Share in the comments.

What They Wore: Cannes 2015 Best Dressed

Cannes-2015-Poppy-Delevingne
I love Cannes fashion. Most of the time celebs aren’t afraid to make style statements on the croisette, and we get to feast our eyes on over-the-top gowns, as well as the more subdued, real-life-appropriate day outfits. It’s a win-win!

This year, I found the fashions particularly inspiring, with some of the world’s most stylish leading ladies all over the red carpet, I had a tough time picking my faves. Diane Kruger, Cate Blanchett, Julianne Moore, Sienna Miller, Lupita Nyong’o, and many others brought their A-game to Cannes, and it was glorious.

I know that the festival isn’t over just yet, and I’ll update this post as more photographs become available, but in the meantime, let’s enjoy Poppy Delevingne in her exquisite CHANEL gown, the always regal Cate Blanchett in an otherworldly Giles creation, Diane Kruger in the most adorable Dolce and Gabbana dress, and many more.

Share your faves in comments and stay tuned for more beautiful looks from Cannes 2015!

What They Wore: Met Gala 2015 Recap

Robert-Pattinson-FKA-Twigs-Met-Gala-2015
Ok, so first things first – to me, The Met Gala is all about taking risks, embracing the theme, and going all out. This event is not the time to pull out your LBD, your prom dress (I’m looking at you, Elizabeth Banks!), or your ice-skating get up (unless the theme is ice-skating, that is). With that said, I don’t think Beyonce, who so many consider the Best Dressed of the evening, brought her A-game. She wore a gown that revealed a lot of skin, not unlike JLo, and completely failed at embracing the night’s theme – “China: Through the Looking Glass”, and while my top picks are probably not going to be crowd-pleasers, I firmly stand by my choices.

My top looks of the night included FKA Twigs in a crazy-cool Christopher Kane dress (yes that’s a penis, and no, Robert Pattinson does not deserve her hotness), Georgia May Jagger in an Asian-inspired Gucci robe, Solange in a Giles Deacon flying saucer amazingness, which totally did not adhere to the dress code, but was so bonkers I loved it, Chloe Sevigny in a very theme-appropriate JW Anderson creation that is sure to land her on some Worst Dressed lists, but I thought she pulled off flawlessly…I also loved Grace Coddington in silk pajamas. I know, it’s pajamas…but it’s Grace effing Coddington, and she had a flight right after…and she looks awesome and comfy.

In other Met Gala news, SJP wore a dress designed by H&M (!!!), and Emily Ratajkowski wore a pretty Topshop frock…fast fashion on the Met Gala red carpet? I never thought I’d see the day. I loved Dakota Johnson’s CHANEL handbag, which was super cute…and while her disco-ball dress did look smashing on her, perhaps she should’ve opted for something a little more fancy. I have to say that I didn’t love Rihanna’s “omelet” gown, but I’ll take it over what Kanye West’s wife wore any day…Also, there’s a photo I can’t find right now, one where Rihanna’s going up the red stairs and it looks like an image from a fairy tale. Points to RiRi for taking a risk.

I also thought Anne Hathaway, Miley Cyrus, Carey Mulligan, Diane Kruger, and Keri Russell deserve shout-outs for their awesome outfits last night…they weren’t my faves for the occasion, but were notable nonetheless. Lastly, Emily Blunt looked lovely in a caped Prada…but there’s something about this look that’s just not doing it for me…perhaps if it was in a different colour?

So here you have it, my recap of the Met Gala 2015…Share your faves after the jump!

Style Fille: Olivia Wilde in H&M Conscious Exclusive Collection

olivia-wilde-white-cape-jacket-h&m-conscious-2015-3
H&M’s latest Conscious Exclusive collection hits the stores today, and while I already got to shop it yesterday at the brand’s pre-shop in Toronto, I wish this cream cape blazer that Olivia Wilde is wearing here was available too. I ended up picking up the black version, which is also pretty amazing…but I was really hoping to steal this entire look, seeing how I already own a similar Led Zeppelin tee. Oh well, I guess I’ll settle for the black blazer with a white tee instead…should be just as good.

Are you planning on shopping this collection today? Check out the lookbook and be prepared for crowds! Let me know which pieces you picked up, and whether you love Olivia’s look as much as I do.

Shopping: H&M’s Conscious Exclusive Collection Spring 2015 Lookbook

1155_102_PR
Every spring, I look forward to checking out H&M’s newest Conscious Exclusive collection, and this year’s is finally here! Fronted by Olivia Wilde as the face of this season’s campaign, the collection is full of timeless pieces that I love. Take the cape blazer for example…how sick does it look on Olivia?! It’s a perfect blend of masculine and feminine and frankly, I need it in my life. Same can be said about the rest of the collection, rendered in neutral colours, and classic silhouettes.

“I love the Conscious Exclusive collection at H&M, both for the look, and also for its ethics. This is how all fashion should be: great style that’s naturally more sustainable,” says Olivia Wilde.

H&M’s new Conscious Exclusive collection was created using sustainable materials like hemp, organic linen and organic leather, and will be available worldwide on April 16. Are you loving this year’s collection? Share in the comments!

Paris Fashion Week: H&M Studio Fall 2015 Runway Collection

h&m-studio-aw-2015-collection-pfw
Paris Fashion Week is upon us, and as in the past few years, my fave fast-fashion brand H&M presented their Fall 2015 Studio collection in Paris. With a studded front row, that included Audrey Tautou, Solange Knowles, Mark Ronson, and Olga Kurylenko, and a slew of the most in-demand models strutting their stuff on the runway, this was definitely one of the hottest tickets of the season.

Once again, I tuned in to watch the show live online, while making my wishlist for next fall. After all, even though this was a Paris Fashion Week runway show, the major appeal is that the clothes shown will be affordable. No need to break the bank.

Unlike in the past, however, this year’s wishlist was shorter than I had expected. There were several standouts like the psychedelic sequinned top that my closet seriously needs, the green chevron-printed tunic that I’d happily wear as a dress, a couple of patent leather jackets perfect for fall, an orange beaded sweater of my dreams, and a furry topper that I fell in love with. But the rest of it just wasn’t my cup of tea. Perhaps because I don’t love wide trousers, or because the colours weren’t vibrant enough for this magpie…but most looks from the collection left me a little underwhelmed. Hopefully when the pieces hit the stores, I’ll feel differently, but even if I don’t, there are plenty of looks from this collection that I’m going to be coveting next fall.

H&M Studio is H&M’s limited-edition collection of key seasonal pieces, with its own dedicated design team. The Fall 2015 collection will be available in 200 stores worldwide, as well as online (sadly not in Canada), from September 10. So tell me, did you love H&M Fall 2015 Studio Collection? Share your faves in the comments.

3 Bags and 3 Muses in CHANEL’s Latest Ad Campaign

vanessa-paradis-chanel-girl-bag-campaign-2015
If you’ve been waiting for that promised ad campaign, featuring Kristen Stewart, Vanessa Paradis, and Alice Dellal, your patience has finally been rewarded, because CHANEL released these images of the new (and not so new) CHANEL handbag muses, wearing three iconic bags from the brand. Shot by Karl Lagerfeld, these images feature some of the coolest it-girls around, and I have to say that I’m obsessed with Vanessa’s photo, especially since she’s not a twenty-something ingenue. I love that Karl continues to work with her, and that she continues to be the face of CHANEL many years later.

The idea behind the campaign was to feature each woman with a CHANEL bag that best embodies her – Vanessa with the Girl, Alice with the Boy, and Kristen with the 11.12. As a huge fan of the brand, I do find all three bags dreamy, but if I had to choose one, it would be the Boy. Besides the romantic story behind the name of the bag, I love how easy that bag is…how it can be dressed up or down, with a comfy strap that can be worn cross-body, or on the shoulder…CHANEL Boy Bag is definitely a fave of mine.

kristen-stewart-chanel-11-12-bag-campaign
If you were curious about what the three muses had to say about their bag choices, here’s a little insight into their faves!

Dellal on the Boy: “Since discovering the Boy, I have found it a permanent fixture in my wardrobe. It’s a ‘fuss-free’ bag; it is very modern! The Boy bag was my first job with Chanel, it was the beginning of a unique journey.”
Kristen Stewart on 11.12: “For me, the iconic handbag (the 11.12) is just like the house of Chanel, fundamental and modern, two qualities not usually shared.”
Vanessa Paradis on the Girl: “I like the fact that it blends in with clothes or against the skin with infinite gentleness.”

And there you have it…three CHANEL muses, with three stunning CHANEL handbags. Which one is your fave? Share in the comments.

Oscars 2015: Best Dressed

Marion-Cotillard-Dress-Oscars-2015
If you tuned in to my #YorkdaleOscars live-tweet session, you already know that I thought that this year’s Oscars were a bit of a snoozefest. NPH’s jokes fell flat, the red carpet wasn’t very exciting, and the show felt like it lasted FOREVER. But despite all that, once I started going through my best-dressed picks, I came up with quite a few faves. A little disclaimer…not all of these looks are 100% amazing in my books…but they were the best of the bunch – the most exciting, most beautiful, most elaborate. There were also some bad ones…like Anna Kendrick’s bridesmaid dress, or Karolina Kurkova’s rumpled duvet gown…but we won’t go there. Instead, let’s see who brought their A (and A-) game to Dolby this year.

Marion Cotillard’s Christian Dior Couture was one of the faves…not only because of the unusual construction and exquisite detailing, but because it was Marion who was wearing it. On anyone else this would not have been a win. But she really sold it.

Laura-Dern-Oscar-2015-Best-Dressed
As I mentioned on Twitter, Laura Dern isn’t usually a fashion girl, but she BROUGHT IT this year in a silver Alberta Ferretti gown. Bow down!

Julianne-Moore-oscar-2015
Julianne Moore was the clear winner this year…not only taking home the coveted Best Actress award, but rocking a custom CHANEL Couture gown like it was made for her…because it was.

Style Fille: Solange Knowles on Her Wedding Day

Image by Rog Walker

Guys, can we talk about Solange’s wedding, please?! I mean, how amazing did she look?! So damn good! First, in a Stephane Rolland cream caped jumpsuit, riding a white bicycle to her NOLA nuptials with her Lanvin-clad fiance Alan Ferguson, and then in that siiiiiick white gown designed by Kenzo’s Humberto Leon…she was a vision. Beyonce was there too, obviously, but even she couldn’t take the focus away from the bride. Not that she tried…I’m definitely not implying that, but 9 times out of 10, I bet Bey is the center of attention…but not this time. All eyes on Solange, please and thank you.

And then these wedding portraits, shot by Rog Walker – not what you’d expect as far as wedding photography goes, but so fitting…and so cool. Now, why couldn’t Solange and her fiance grace the cover of Vogue instead of the two whom we shall not name? Solange is infinitely more stylish, and infinitely cooler…and yet, less popular. Just baffling.

But back to her wedding…what do you think of Solange’s wedding attire? Do you love, or do you LOOOOOOOVE? Share in the comments.

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.
