Victoria’s Secret Model, Miranda Kerr, Named the New Face of H&M

Girl crush much? The gorgeous, stunning Miranda Kerr has been named the new face of H&M for their Spring/Summer 2014 campaign. They revealed the news on H&M’s Twitter posting a picture of Kerr with her face mostly covered up stating they would soon reveal the new face of H&M. A few hours later, they posted a full picture revealing Kerr. Then they took to Instagram and posted again on their profile a short video in which Kerr herself states, “Hi H&M followers, I’m Miranda Kerr and I’m the new face of H&M spring campaign. Stayed tuned for more.”

Previously having worked for Mango, Kerr is no newbie to being the face of a massive company. The sweet Aussie, who split from Orlando Bloom a few months ago, has been busy shooting for the campaign for a couple of months which means we cannot wait to see the official campaign pictures, rumored to be released in March. Either way, the hottie seems to be doing pretty well solo.

Maybe I’ll Instagram her as my #WomanCrushWednesday for tomorrow…..

Lady Gaga definitely lives for the applause, isn’t that right? Today, we were all able to take a look at Versace’s most recent  campaign, and yes, we loved it. The pop icon looks stunning wearing a long hair wig and a purple cut-away gown that make her seem just like the always stylish Donatella. Photographed by by Mert Alas, Gaga will be Versace’s face for summer and spring 2014.
We cannot wait to see the other ads that are about to be released. Music, Italian fashion, luxury and pop culture come all together to become one of the most successful campaigns of the upcoming seasons!

Men Take Over Magic Trade Show in Las Vegas

20 August, 2013 All, Shows, Top News 6 comments

This week at the Magic Trade Show hosted in Las Vegas, the men’s market has come a long way and frankly, it’s about time . The industry has exploded in recent years, as said by Senior Trend Analysis, Tim Bess, there are rapid changes in technology. We are seeing performance fabrics and active wear in the designer market. Well tailored merchandise is taking the limelight and men consumers are under the impact of this powerful attraction. We see slim fits, classic seasonal fabrics, and a dark saturated color palette. The Doneger Group’s Mobility in Menswear presentation prior to the Magic/Project Trade Show on Monday conveys this overriding theme of tailored clothing and technology for the Spring season. Each look in the presentation comes together and embodies the quintessence of class. We are looking forward to more innovating influences menswear can bring while staying true to their simplistic nature.

#THATFASHIONTHING: Crazy Prints

Celebrities are shaking things up a bit this Spring, by embracing the sunny season with crazy prints- and we’re not talking pretty little floral dresses. After a surge of pastel gowns, and one safe red carpet look after another, I think it’s okay to state that we’re ready for some sartorial drama. Say goodbye to monochromatic pieces, and hello to geometric, kaleidoscope prints- a trend that has taken over the wardrobes of hollywoods top fashionista’s. From mix-matched fun, to downright insane, check out our roundup of trippy celebrity prints!

RiRi nails it in this Mary Katrantzou dress, and thigh-highs to match. She is definitely on top of her style game lately!

Jaime King looks stunning in this Peter Pilotto knee-length dress. The colors look flawless on her skin-tone, and add great volume to her shape.

#THATFASHIONTHING: Summer Essentials

As we enter the month of May, I’d like to think it’s safe to assume that we made it through the wrath of Winter (you can never be so sure with Mother Nature). And although the saying, “April flowers, brings May showers” could still hold some truth, that’s not to say we shouldn’t be prepared for those scorching hot Summer days that are peaking through the storms. Here are a few Summer Essentials to get you prepared!

The Bright Bag: With so many different bags on the market, there is often the inquisitive questions of what kind to get, each season. This Spring/Summer the answer is easy: you need a bright bag. Weather it’s PVC, neon, or studded, just make sure you’re carrying something in a stand-out shade! (Orange Satchel: nastygal.com)

Classic Eyewear: Having the proper sunnies per season is so crucial to proving ones style. But why not invest a small chunk of your wallet into shades that will last you forever? Save the funky glasses for a cheap price at Urban Outfitters, and splurge on a pair of classic Ray-Bans that never go out of style! You’ll totally get your money’s worth.

Swinging Fringe: This boho-chic bikini is making major moves onto the pool party scene. So be sure to get your shimmy detailing on this Summer! (Yellow Bikini: nelly.com)

Crop-top/Maxi: I’m never totally sure whether or not I like crop-tops. I guess it’s the notion of college girls slicing their shirts in half, and pairing them with tight, black, mini’s that has me thrown. But thanks to OscarPRGirl, I finally found the light when I saw her pair a polished mid-riff, with a floor-length maxi-skirt. The combination is flawless, and perfect for a BBQ with friends!

Turbonator: We’ve seen the ever-so-chic head piece make it’s way through the years now, but 2013 is bringing the ancient turban to new heights. Fancy cut-outs, and saturated tones are adding a fresh take on the hair accessory this summer, and I’m totally digging it. Thoughts? (nastygal.com) 

 P.S. An amazing  way to protect your skin, while hanging on tight to your sun-kissed glow is with the Dior Bronze Sun Protection Body Care! The product offers unique SPF30 protection, combined with a faster tan!

So for all the east-coasters out there, dust off your open-toed shoes, and update your wardrobe this season with these fresh new pieces! Summer is just around the corner.

 

Great Big World

A GREAT BIG WORLD TO RELEASE THREE SONG EP MAY 21
First Single Is Fan-Fueled Hit “This Is the New Year”
 
SPRING TOUR KICKS OFF ON DAY OF EP RELEASE
12 City Club Tour Begins In Cleveland
 
“THIS IS THE NEW YEAR” COVERED ON GLEE
A Great Big World Gets A Great Big Boost from Film and Television Placement
When they asked their fans to help them create a tweet-by tweet lyric video for the song, their fans went above and beyond. Not only did they tweet lines from “This is The New Year,” they illustrated them with photos and videos. The video perfectly captured both the feeling and the spirit of the song, much more an expression of a fan driven community than a crowd-sourced clip.
It was no surprise that A Great Big World engaged their audience to the extent that they did.  Last summer, when they launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their endeavors, their fans rallied, and A Great Big World raised much more money than they were looking for.
That’s the kind of effect Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino — otherwise known as A Great Big World — has upon listeners. With a pop sensibility and a whole lot of heart, A Great Big World creates the kind of music that people connect with.  ”It’s optimistic, hopeful pop music,” Chad says. “There are fewer songs about heartbreak and more about the meaning of life. But even the most painful of our songs are hopeful.”
Music supervisors were amongst the first to realize the impact of A Great Big World’s music.   The music supervisor for Glee chose “This Is The New Year” for the cast to cover on the hit show, and the song was used as the title track for the film New Year’s Eve and the theme for MTV’s I Used To Be Fat.  Additionally, the song was featured on theAmazing Race, One Tree Hill, ESPN, and Good Morning America.
Ian and Chad met while they were attending NYU, following their passion for writing and performing while sensibly studying the music business.  When they first got together, Chad was managing Ian, but Ian also recognized Chad’s potential as a musician, and their business relationship was transformed into a musical partnership.   They began playing together in New York venues and set the pattern that’s now their M.O.:  A Great Big World perform, and people respond.  “Writing is our therapy,” Ian says.  “And when we can connect with people through our music, it’s transformational. We’re not alone. Our songs are your songs. And that’s what it’s all about.”

#ThatFashionThing: The Skirt & Crop Top

One of my favorite Spring fashion trends that we have seen up and down the runway is the classic crop top with a skirt. Personally, I prefer the a long, ankle length skirt, because it gives it that beach-y, Summer feel, but this trend looks great with any type of skirt, or even shorts! Top the look off with a cute pair of wedges if wearing something short, or a stylish pair of sandals or flats if wearing something a little longer.

I am absolutely obsessed with the outfit by Emilio Pucci in the photo above. The black crop top paired with, not only a long skirt, but a high waisted long skirt! Now that is perfection.

Here are a few #StreetStyle looks:

This trend is loved by many, and is a trend that many Coachella-goers are obsessed with! I may not have been at Coachella this weekend, but if I were to have gone, this is definitely a trend I would have been sporting the entire weekend. This style can be dressed up or dressed down. The street style photo above is a perfect example of a dressed up version of it. Pairing it with a set of heels, a blazer, and the pulled back hair in a bun, the outfit was given a classy look with a hint of sass.

(Excuse me while I shop online for replicas of these outfits.)
