This past Thursday, “The Ultimate Gold Collection,” Fashion Show premiered at the annual film festival in Cannes. Models such as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Karolina Kurkova, Karlie Kloss, Alessandra Ambrosio, and more, modeled gold gowns made by Tom Ford, Alexander McQueen, Dior, Givenchy, Burberry, Luis Vuitton, Versace, Prada, etc. down the runway. A complete total of 40 lovely models participated in the catwalk for this event which was created as a tribute to Elizabeth Taylor. Also included at the event were live performances from Elie Goulding, Hot Chelle Rae, Dame Shirley Bassey, and other surprise performances. The gowns and accessories worn down the catwalk were absolutely stunning, and there is no doubt that our beloved Elizabeth was proud.
I’m sure everyone has wished they were Beyonce at some point in their life, but correct me if I’m wrong! Anyway, the Queen B has decided to partner with the online website,“Rent the Runway.” The site gives people the opportunity to wear actual designer dresses/gowns for a fraction of the price, by simply renting. The 31 year old fashionista has selected her favorite pieces for her “Beyonce Boutique range,” which will include, sequined dresses, jumpsuits, mini skirts, patterned outfits, and more. “Making women feel confident and beautiful is something I’ve always been passionate about. That’s why joining forces with Rent the Runway was so organic.It’s more than just access to beautiful clothes; it’s about making women look and feel their best.”
This is the perfect site for us fashionistas who love Beyonce’s style, especially because she has personally selected the outfits for the site.
Now does that mean I can call Beyonce my stylist?
What do I love almost as much as I love fashion? Fancy little Café’s, of course! I have always been obsessed with Café’s, and the fact that Giorgio Armani is opening its very own Café has made my entire life. Now, let’s not confuse this one with the “Emporio Armani Caffe,” because the two can easily be mixed up. The Café opening tomorrow in Cannes, Croisette, will serve a variety of Armani branded food and drinks. The menu will include things such as, Armani/Dolci chocolate, tea, and sparkling water.
Just next door will be a small Giorgio Armani boutique for those interested in shopping, after enjoying a nice lunch at the fancy little Café. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to hop on a plane to Cannes, Croisette just to eat at this Café.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley may be a lingerie model for Victoria’s Secret, but this hottie has decided to launch her own line of sexy lingerie. Rosie partnered with M&S (Marks & Spencer) last Summer to begin this partnership for her vintage inspired autograph line.
“I was particularly drawn to the opulent elegance of the Twenties era which really shows in my designs from the sumptuous silks I chose to the intricate deco-inspired embroidery detailing on the garments. The palette was not only inspired by my favorite Twenties pieces, but also it was largely influenced by the rich colours of different types of roses. From the muted tones of dusky pink and green through to dramatic scarlet blooms, I wanted the palette to evoke the beauty of a gorgeous British garden in summer.”
For a little sneak peak of Rosie’s 2013 collection, take a look below of the photos she posted on her Instagram a few days ago. Do you love?!
Rosie explained that her line was thought of with women of all shapes and sizes in mind. This line is for anyone who just wants to look and feel sexy everyday. The line is made up of soft pastel colors for that girly feel. The soft bra cup is comfy and stylish, so it’s PERFECT for a relaxing Summer day when lounging around the house. I’m thinking of getting myself a pair of lingerie from her line just because I’ve always been a Rosie fan.

Since the re-launch of her fashion company in 2007, she has reinvented herself, and her designs. The print trend has been around for a while, but it seems to have skyrocketed to popularity this year. In which case, Diane knew it was the perfect idea to design her own prints for the swimsuit line. Everyone loves their prints, and the perfect time to bring them out is during bathing suit season.
Here is a little preview of the new swimwear line for 2013:

For Jimmy Choo’s 2013-2014 Fall/Winter campaign will star the lovely Nicole Kidman. “I’ve always loved fashion and often use it as a way to get into character. There is a lot of complexity, mystery, and femininity to the Jimmy Choo Woman.” Now that Kidman is the newest face, she will get the chance to show her version of the ideal Jimmy Choo woman. Kidman is such a mature and poised individual, and this campaign is absolutely perfect for her.
Jimmy Choo’s creative director, Sandra Choi shared, “Nicole is one of the finest actresses in the world, who I knew could convey the empowered glamour of the brand. But she is also nuanced and refined; she brings an attitude of defiance, strength, sensuality, and elegance.” I cannot wait to see the photographs that Kidman will grace us with. The world will get its first preview of the campaign this August, and will be shot by photographer, Mikael Jansson.
Model of the moment, Cara Delevingne poses nude for Marc Jacobs’ latest campaign against skin cancer.

Beginning June 15th, Condé Nast will be opening their very own version of a library for the Edinburgh Art Festival. This event will be called “Coming into Fashion: A Century Of Photography at Condé Nast.” Visitors will have the chance to view 100 year old iconic fashion photos, as well as an inside look into the Condé Nast archives. This sounds like Heaven for Fashionistas!
Exhibition curator, Nathalie Herschdorfer shared, “Mr. Condé Nast understood that a powerful cover would bring him more readers. The first Vogue covers are works of art. In the early twenties, he realized what the photographic medium could bring to his magazines. He was a man of his time and was looking ahead. He wanted to work with people who were talented artists and not necessarily good patricians. The vision of the photographer was recognized as a value, then the photographer was asked to adapt it to the magazine’s needs.” It is truly amazing to see how far the magazine has come through the years. There is so much history behind each photo that will be previewed during this event, and it is quite an opportunity to be given the chance to see all that Condé Nast has accomplished.
