Meet me in Saint-Tropez

Ah, Karl.

You made my heart skip a beat - yet again - with your beautiful Cruise collection.

What an ingenious idea it was of you to have the models walk as if they were wandering around Saint-Tropez on their private holiday.

Some in their Chanel bikinis, having just left the beach to get a menthe-à-l'eau, others leaving their yacht on their way to a dinnerparty in the sunset where they enjoy Ricard with their friends.

You also continued the mood you set in 'Remember now', the lovely short film you directed, starring Elisa Sednaoui, Pascal Gregory, Heidi Mount and Abbey Lee Kershaw among others. It was a great choice to let the true actors of the group have the leading roles and let the models have a smaller part. And yes, we will remember 'now', as you've shown in your film that icons like Bardot and Birkin are irreplaceable, but the present will provide us with new ones. And what a perfect setting for all this. Saint-Tropez. Where legends live and parties are 24/7.

Oh, and I also loved those sweet little cocktail dresses you showed! Hitting all the right curves on Crystal Renn, fitting perfectly on the tiny frame of pretty Hanne Gaby Odiele, you've showed that yes, Chanel dresses ARE for everyone!

And no Karl, I wouldn't mind being caught in one of them. So feel free to send over one or more items from your Cruise Collection. Or, you know what, all of them would be fine as well. I would be happy to provide a decent home for them. Especially the last one below, one that is similar to a blue and white Chanel dress worn by Keira Knightley, another one of your favorites, during her Atonement press tour. It's not hard to know why the model wearing this oh-so-pretty dress is beaming with joy. I know I would too...

Sorry for my lack of posts lately, I don't have internet at the moment (sigh), but that will be resolved shortly!

A Golden Bride

Congratulations to Lara Stone and her new husband David Walliams!

The couple tied the knot this weekend in London after a short engagement. The model and comedian looked utterly happy on their big day with their friends and family present.

Lucky them, as they got to feast on a jummy wedding breakfast that includes lobster salad. Surrounded by tons of white roses, Lara said yes to David whilst wearing a gorgeous one-of-a-kind wedding gown that was designed for her by Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci.
Leaving everything conventional aside, she chose to wear a very sexy gold dress, that put a lot of emphasis on her legs and unignorable bust. She finished her look with soft waves and a smokey eye. Most of us would wear a dress like this for a party, but good for Lara for going all out and wearing something that makes her feel great! After all, it's her day and if she wants to look like a golden goddess, then yes, yes she can.
I wish them the best of luck!

A closet full of Louboutin and leather

She is the newest fashion darling and the current sweetheart of Karl Lagerfeld and Diane Von Furstenberg (who wrote a great article about her for V magazine).
Her name is Elisa Sednaoui and she is a force to be reckoned with.
Born in Italy in 1987, this stunner has quite the international flair. She's lived in Italy, France, New York and has traveled the world since taking the modeling world by storm. She's also taking small steps into the acting scene and has just finished a french movie titled 'Neither before nor after'. You can also see her in some of Christian Louboutin's short films. She was a given choice for Mr. Louboutin as he is her Godfather. Yes. You heard me. Her GODFATHER! You're thinking 'Oh-My-God-Her-Closet-Must-Be-Filled-With-Gorgeous-Shoes-With-To-Die-For-Red-Soles' right? And yes. Yes it is. If you are dying with envy, but cannot resist to take a little peek into her (minimalistic downtown) wardrobe, go ahead and check the Youtube video I've linked.
After Karl's approval (she was his 'date' to the Met) and the personality that matches those looks, I have no doubt we'll hear so much more from her in the near future.

When the first pictures of the Met's Gala popped up online, I was instantly captivated by Anne Hathaway's dress. She looks so sparkly, happy, romantic! She looked like a princess.
A princess adorned in Valentino clothes. What a perfect combination. Valentino always works for Anne. Maybe she could have put a little bit more effort into her hair, but this is just a minor comment. I love her entire look, glammed up hair or no glammed up hair.
To me, Camilla Belle in a spectacular red Jason Wu dress was a great runner up, followed closely by Kate Bosworth, also in Valentino. Kate always manages to pull off a great old hollywood hairdo.
All three girls were appropriately dressed to the American Woman theme and I thought Diane Kruger (not pictured) did an excellent job of doing so in Calvin Klein as well.

Who was your favorite at the Met?

Miss Bowler

How fantastic is gorgeous Miss Donaldson looking in this picture!
I love how minimalist chic her outfit is.
She is a great example of how to only buy about ten key pieces and be able to put them all together in different outfits.
Am still envious of her great utility jacket and don't know where she got it. I am guessing Stella McCartney or Burberry, but I'm really not sure.
Love her little bowler hat with her soft, undone hair. For an everyday look that anyone could wear, change the high heels for black patent flats.
