Kendall Jenner Lands Her First Campaign with Givenchy

Kim K needs to watch it because she’s obviously not keeping up with little sister Kendall Jenner. The 18-year-old has been dipping her toes in the modeling world, and it looks like it’s all working in her favor. So far she’s walked the runway for the likes of Chanel and Marc Jacobs and has most recently landed her first serious fashion campaign for Givenchy. Along many other well-known models, Kendall will be appearing in the Fall 2014 campaign. The picture released of the campaign thus far showing the Kardashian’s baby sis was shot by famous photographer duo Mert & Marcus. The picture contains a very dark and sultry feel to it and includes Kendall as well as Mariacarla Boscono, Jamie Bouchert and Peter Brant II.

Looks like Kendall Jenner is definitely one of young Hollywood’s brightest stars at the moment….

The Highly Anticipated ‘Kimye’ Wedding Finally Arrived

enhanced-16781-1401200573-11

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West finally said their ‘I Do’s’ on Saturday in their multi-million dollar wedding ceremony in Florence, Italy. The internationally acclaimed rapper and reality super star created a stir in the media, hosting the most talked about wedding this year, and yet managed to keep it pretty nicely under wraps. Who knew the Kardashians could keep such a big secret and make details of the event as low key as possible?

Ever since Kanye put a ring on it, the most highly anticipated moment was which designer Kim would choose to wear on her big day. The 33-year-old bride stunned us all in a gorgeous custom-made Givenchy Haute Couture gown designed by Riccardo Tisci as the couple tied the knot earlier this weekend at the Forte Di Belvedere in Florence in front of a 200-person crowd of close family and friends.

We here at Annex send the newly weds much luck and love in their marriage. And may this one fully last them their lifetimes.

The Wow Moments of Paris Fashion Week

Paris Fashion Week this year was aaaaaaaaamazing. Between the designers, the new collections, the fabulous models and the new trends to look out for, it’s so much to take in. So here’s a list of Paris Fashion Week’s top WOW moments.

Kendall Jenner walked for Chanel in their supermarket themed show, showing that the Keeping up with the Kardashians starlet is more than just a pretty face. This comes as a bit of a shock since Chanel’s designer, Karl Lagerfeld, had some not so nice words to say about the family last year, but it seems Kendall has changed his mind. The tall brunette beauty also graced the Givenchy runway with her, very talked about, bleached eyebrows.

Anna Wintour sat second row at Valentino’s fall 2014 show today which caused a decent amount of buzz. Though some believe it had to do with possible drama, the truth is seating was limited and the talented designer gave up her seat so one of her editors could sit in the front. Talk about a class act.

Cara Delevingne has made yet another BIG impression on the fashion world with her quirky attitude and hilarious personality. While walking down the catwalk at the Stella McCartney show in Paris, Cara decided that for the finale she  would ditch the serious model walk and, instead, shimmy/skip her way down instead.

Is Kim Kardashian a “Modern Marilyn”?

24 February, 2014 All, Exclusives 410 comments

If you’re the creative director of super high-end designer label, chances are people value your taste and opinion.

So when Riccardo Tisci compared Kim Kardashion to Marilyn Monroe in a recent interview with The Sunday Times, the world is forced to pay attention.

“I met her as the girlfriend of a good friend,” Tisci said (referring to Kanye). “I just wanted a moment with her to understand— and I fell in love. She’s the Monroe of our age. People think she’s like a doll, but actually she’s tough and clever.”

There are certainly similarities between the two: the paparazzi, the fascination, the curves, the fame…It’s impossible not to see the comparison. But does that mean Kim K will be a cultural icon for generations to come? Only time will tell.

Erykah Badu + Givenchy = Fashion GENIUS

Riccardo Tisci, creative director for Givenchy, has released news declaring R&B singer Erykah Badu as the face of the spring/summer 2014 collection for the company. The new collection will portray Badu’s eccentric style and helps Givenchy rectify the belief that runway models are mainly white models. The company is thoroughly excited about the collaboration and states that they love the creative style and unique ideas Badu has brought to the table.

I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait to see the rest of the collection as soon as it’s released.

#OBSESSED || GIVENCHY FALL/WINTER 2013 CAMPAIGN

  ”I always go to the Givenchy archives. By accident I was in the room with all my stuff, and I found things I did when I was younger that I did here in different ways. It’s eight years this season that I’ve been at the house. I was like a gypsy—you know, gypsies are always recycling old clothes. It was really one of the most fun collections I’ve done in my career.” -Riccardo Tisci (Style.com)

Fashion World Applauds Industry Contributors at The 2013 CFDA Awards

The stars were out last night at the 2013 CFDA Awards from Oscar de la Renta receiving the Founders Award from none other than Hillary Clinton, to Ralph Lauren presenting Vera Wang with the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement. The annual show, hosted by Bravo’s Andy Cohen, took place at Lincoln Center in New York City, embracing the most talented fashion contributors of the year. Some of the highlights include:

Womenswear Designer of The Year: Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez for Proenza Schouler

Menswear Designer of The Year: Thom Browne

Accessories Designer of The Year: Phillip Lim

Tim Blanks of Style.com also won the Media Award stating one of my favorite quotes of the night, “We all play a roll in Fashion, and if I can communicate my unholy enthusiasm for what I do, than I’m winning.”

Among all of the award winners, they were quick to thank Diane Von Furstenberg and Steven Kolb of the CFDA. Andy Cohen did a fabulous job adding light and humor to what can be known as a somewhat “uptight” crowd- but making sure to wisely thank Anna Wintour at the end of his opening monologue. Call the fashion enthusiasts whatever you want, but you have to give it to them. Working tirelessly throughout the year, to ensure that our favorite celebrities and fashionistas are dressed in the most stylish get-ups for us to drool over calls for a moment to shine- and that they did! Check out some of the most glamorous looks from the Oscars of Fashion.

Punk to Perfection: The Top Five Looks at the Met Gala

Every year, the world’s top fashionable socialites gather together to welcome the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute. It is not only one of the chicest events of the year, but one of the most exciting nights for the fashion world, as followers stalk live streaming videos, websites, and instagram accounts to get a glimpse of the red carpet. With this year’s theme being a rebellious one, “Punk: Chaos to Couture,” I was particularly thrilled to see how dangerous attendees were willing to go (especially with the more reserved dressers like Jessica Biel and Jennifer Lawrence). Boy did they deliver! In no special order, here are my top five favorite picks of the night.

Rooney Mara

Rooney Mara looked absolutely STUNNING in this white Givenchy gown. The lace embellishments, gold zippers, plunging neckline, and shoulder detailing made this one of the most elegantly edgy silhouettes of the night. As a co-chair for this year’s benefit, Mara did her position justice.

Anja Rubik

As expected, supermodel Anja Rubik killed it in this Anthony Vaccarello leather dress. Taking a Cruella De Vil-meets-punk look, Rubik completed the ensemble with cat eyes, cool slicked back hair, and a bold deep red lip. She was effortless yet put together, making punk sexier than ever.

Anne Hathaway

Academy Award winner Anne Hathway looked absolutely amazing in none other than Valentino. Showing off her envy-worthy figure while complimenting her new blonde pixie hairdo, Anne gave us a look into her rebellious side with this vintage gown. She was dark, mysterious, and revealing without showing too much. Just perfect.

Madonna

“Punk is about not caring what anybody thinks,” the megastar is quoted in saying. And that is exactly what she went with. Madonna, who was rocking a Givenchy coat, chains and jewelry, and fishnet stockings fully committed to the punk theme… and it was good. She was fashionably reckless, which we were all thankful for, since it made Madonna one of the night’s highlights.

Sarah Jessica Parker


The list would not be complete without the big SJP. Wearing a custom Giles dress AND custom Christian Louboutin shoes, Sarah Jessica Parker gave punk a high-fashion, couture twist. Oh, and we couldn’t forget about her faux mohawk, also known as her Philip Treacy headpiece… adding on to her elegant take to the evening.

It was interesting to see how each celeb tackled this tricky theme, which in its core goes against the mainstream. Some were bland, others daring, but as anticipated, each icon brought something special to the red carpet, making it a fashionably exciting night.

PS- We were also loving Miley Cyrus, Dee Hilfiger, Liu Wen, Coco Rocha, and Sienna Miller!

#THATFASHIONTHING: Let’s Hear It For The Boys

Lately, I’ve found myself surprisingly more intrigued by Menswear than ever before- and not just for the sake of hunky models. I think it’s an area of fashion that needs more praise, so I’m here to blow some menswear smoke up the male species you know what. The fashion this season was like nothing I’ve every seen; my absolute favorite collections include, Louis Vuitton, Viktor & Rolf, and Gucci! Coats on steroids, somber colors, and missing neck ties were some of the many trends forecasted for Fall 2013.  I’m dying over the fur accents and classic tailoring that Frida Giannini brought to the catwalk as well. The shock of colors that streamed through the otherwise muted blacks and grays were the perfect pop of energy. Sophisticated, layers upon layers will keep your guy properly playful, yet cozy for the Fall 2013 season. Here are my top picks!

As for Spring 2013 you’re going to definitely need a baseball bomber jacket guys! The look was seen on almost every runway, and is a great topper for the upcoming season.
