You can’t do a fucking scroll and click these days without accidentally, or not, hitting an opinion or an angle about Beyonce’s new video that just dropped over the weekend – ‘Formation’. SHUT THE FRONT DOOR. The song is amazing, but don’t even get me started on the video, which is by far one of the best she’s ever done. Sartorial language mode on – I truly think Beyonce is slowly growing into a real fashion icon.

Yes, hate me all you want, but truth is, when it came down to style she never really owned it you know. She’s always been a walking billboard on the red carpet and not much of who she really was transpired in her off duty style. Her videos always showed her in what always felt as not-really-her-outfits. Until maybe her Partition period and her 2 videos – ‘Jealous’ and ‘Yonce’ that showed an insane style side to Bey.

beyonce-videos-fashion

With ‘Formation’ she not only continues her fashion journey but takes it to another level altogether. The song and the video are incredibly powerful and she stands as a spokesmen for both political and feminism issues, and does it in great statement outfits, hair, and makeup.

So yes, I definitely think she’s becoming more and more a real style icon not simply cause of what she wears, but cause she’s exploring fashion, and style, and clothes, and outfits, and she seems to have more fun with all these, taking herself less serious in the process. Yes, she might miss a few sartorial tunes here and there but practice makes perfect.

beyonce-formation-looks-2

‘Formation’ for me is a true definition of the great extent of fashion influence a pop star has on anyone. So here I go: ‘Hello my name is Dana-Cristina and I have a new obsession and addiction – Beyonce’s looks in Formation. With the side note I might actually go back to being blonde again. Sigh. Thank you.’

There comes a time in a woman’s life when her hair is a big mess. In my case it’s on a daily basis. I’ve gotten used to wild hair days, lifeless hair days, dull days, you know… anything the opposite of great hair day, which for me is a brief 10 seconds before I hop in the shower. To cure my bad hair days I am seriously considering including baseball hats into my #OOTD looks. Only thing is… I’m not ready to ditch the glam/smart/posh/sophisticated/feminine outfits and only wear sports.

Do I have to? After crying, and crying, and then crying some more, for days in a row due to my untameable mane and refusal to ditch my stilettos, I had an epiphany. I really don’t need to change a fucking thing about my #OOTD routine so to speak. I just need to slap a mofo baseball hat on, regardless of the poshness or chillness of my look and BAM!, hope to look like Rihanna. Of course that’s humanly impossible, but can a girl dream? Thank you.

And then I was intrigued and wanted to know more about this ability to wear anything with a baseball hat and look beyond insane. In a good way. So I got together with my gal pal Riri and she basically said it really has nothing to do with what you wear, it’s mostly how, and the tiny details that make it work. Of course all this happened in my head. She doesn’t know we’re friends. Well… actually she doesn’t know me, but I like to pretend we’re fashion besties.

Whatever.

Perhaps Rihanna wears babseball hats cause she loves them too much, perhaps she’s cold, perhaps that’s how she hides from the paparazzi. Perhaps she too has a bad hair day. Whatever the case the girl nails it 100%. From airport cool laid back sporty style that of course goes well with a baseball hat, to wearing stilettos and a sporty cap, OR get this: an evening dress, stilettos and a baseball cap. Wrong? Right actually.

rihanna-baseball-hats riri-baseball-hats

How to wear a baseball cap like Rihanna? So I looked, and looked, and looked, and then looked some more and it really has 0 to do with rules and more with swag and details.

When trying to make a baseball cap work into any outfit that is the opposite of sporty, it’s all about balance. A certain type of balance is born out of clashing styles, which eventually turns everything into sophistication.

Stilettos and jeans, pants, skirts of all sorts paired with a more relaxed top will look great with a baseball hat, mostly cause of the casual top, which is a link, and a key element in between styles. Play it all up with accessories and bold lips for a very urban glam vibe.

rihanna-style-baseball-cap-26

If however you go for a complete polished look you can still don a baseball cap as it will be the one element to give the whole look edge. Of course we’re not talking red carpet gowns here, nor tuxedo looks, but certain outfits that have a type of versatility and urban vibe to them.

rihanna-style-baseball-cap-3

I might be wrong of course, but d’you know what? It’s not even about what I think or what Rihanna does. At the end of the day it’s all about how it looks. And if YOU love it.

Cause this is my #1 current obsession I’ve picked out for you my fave baseball caps below:

Rihanna in baseball hats everywhere. Cause she’s Rihanna you know:

One more thing… THIS is not a new look. It actually used to be a trend a few years back. This year though, for reasons more of necessity rather than trendiness I’m going for it. No, I’m dead serious. Consider it a head’s up before you let your reactions… happen: laughing and eye rolling I suspect once I start popping my baseball adorned head everywhere.

Could I be wrong about the ‘anywhere with anything rule of thumb’? Ah, who the hell knows anymore. Maybe I just woke up in a too-happy-fun-mood for me to be able to handle it like a normal human being.

Who cares if the holidays are done, you know. Red Carpet season is here ladies and gents, and kicking off 2016 are the Golden Globes with some fab moments. There’s the winners, YAY to them all, there’s Leonardo DiCaprio‘s face when Lady Gaga passed by him (priceless), there’s the-capes-are-taking-over-the-world movement happening (almost every single star was wearing some sort of cape dress. whaaaaaaa?!), there’s the overhyped and incredibly stupid duo JLAw and Amy Schumer. Yes, I did just say that, and half of you will probably click away right now. I just have to speak my mind, and I’ve held it for quite a while on these two, hoping they’d drop the bloody crap. They didn’t. It just gets worse. Hence my shocking confession.

Moving on. I’ll take a deep breath now, and you’re more than welcome to just throw that info under the rug, so we can all talk red carpet fashion at the 2016 Golden Globes. 

leo

Well… it was amazing, that’s what I think. The stars brought drama into fashion, they brought jaw-dropping dresses, some over the top, some classic simple cuts. To me it all was finally red carpet worthy in every sense of the word. Hollywood is back on the red carpet and I just love that. Jennifer Lopez, my God she could sell me the worst dress. I hate capes, but she looked beautiful. Sure… very intricate design, steamy hot, but I loved it all, from the colour to the cut, to the whole look. Kate Bosworth shut the front door. LOVED that jewellery dress. Simplicity and glamour collided right there. Of course not all stars have woken up with a desire to nail the fashions – Cate Blanchet – seriously?!

Okay let’s put on the good hat first, and pretend we’re all bloody stylists, and praise the hell out of those stars whose dresses and looks we loved. And later, as you scroll down, I’ll let my bad mouth run wild, and pretend anyone gives a shit.

BEST DRESSED – 2016 Golden Globes Red Carpet

One of the biggest trends at 2016 Globes red carpet was the cape dresses, and let me tell you this: I adored them. And I hate capes. I was never too sold on Lupita’s cape in the past, nor on whoever wore it again. I guess it took the gorgeous Jennifer Lopez to make me love em. The women is beyond beautiful, hot, sexy, confident, she just nailed it. I adored the neckline of the dress, the high slit, the cape cut, the colour, her makeup. It was all simply stunning. Keeping the stunned face and gorgeous vibes happening was Giuliana Rancic. I loved loved loved her cobalt cape’ish (well more sleeve’ish look, but you get it, it’s dramatic in that high fashion sort of way). Simply beautiful.

golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed jennifer-lopez-golden-globes-red-carpet-2016

Alicia Vikander, she’s one of my faves newcomers, actress, style, beauty – all of it. I adore white dresses on the red carpet, and I think the secret to nailing it all the time is to keep it simple with just a slight twist. I loved her very natural look. Refined and fresh.

golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed

Rosie Huntington Whitely was one of my faves as well. I love the concept of slip dresses. And she just wore a simple and glamorous version of that. She looked so effortlessly elegant and very fashionable as if she just rolled and dipped herself in tiny little jewels.

golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed

Leslie Mann was so beautiful and very pink’ish ethereal. I’m a mermaid-dresses-and-hot-looks lover but I adored her dress, and Joanne Froggatt‘s lavender one. Very simple, no fuss, no frills, maybe too simple, but classic in a very right and safe way. The same classic safe approach I found in Maria Menounous’s dress. It was okay. Not my fave, but not worst in any case. Same meh vibes I got from America Fererra’s yellow gown. Okay… not mind-blowing through anything. Perhaps the yellow, but JLo beat her to it… so there’s that.

Carly Steel kept it very simple and just went overboard (in a good way) with that sequinned bejewelled fabric. LOVED that dress and her whole look, which I found dramatic, but clean and edgy, and cool, and very eclectic without being too much. The same is true for Kate Bosworth who truly looked like this beautiful exquisite piece of jewellery in that amazing dress. All of the rest was so simple and she looked beyond fabulous. Definitely breathtaking.

golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed-12

Simple to the core and beautiful was Emmy Rossum‘s red dress. Now that is the kind of dress and look you wear when you want to look simply beautiful and classy on the red carpet. I also loved Eva Green, and Jamie Alexander, who I thought looked like this stunning emerald jewellery in such a dramatic beautiful dress.

emily-rossum-golden-globes-red-carpet-2016 eva-green-golden-globes-red-carpet-2016 Lamie-Alexander-golden-globes-red-carpet-2016

Brie Larson was beautiful, her dress was very armour like, and I loved it, although I’m not a huge fan of cut-outs. Loved Laverne Cox, Kirsten Dunst… ah-mazing!!!! I might be the only one, but I just think that dress was so much more than an LBD. It was drama and sexy through and through. Zendaya brought the same drama, and while I’m such a hater of ruffles… she killed it. Damn she is so fashionable and beautiful and that colour looked amazing on her. Loved it.

Burgundy beauty #2 was Olivia Wilde. Simple. Liquid sequins. Beautiful.

golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed

Taraji Henson looked gorgeous, but then again I love her and I love white gowns. Loved Jenna Dewan Tatum, Amy Adams, Julia Louis Dreyfus, Helen Miren, Queen Latifa, Amber Heard, Kate Winslet… so so many Hollywood red carpet styles like in the old days.

Now… Lady Gaga. Oh my Gawd. Talk about a beautiful old Hollywood look, and dress, and hair, and makeup and all of it. LOVED. Uhm… then there was Kate Hudson. Imma put her into the best dressed because I think she looked fucking hot. And beautiful. Very risqué, maybe too desperado por attention, maybe to hawt, maybe maybe maybe. I liked it.

golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed-9

WORST DRESSED – 2016 Golden Globes Red Carpet

Emilia Clarke – what. the. fuck? (…) She looked horrendous, all buried under that horribly cut and designed dress for her tiny little figure. No. No. No. And the hair… poor thing she was probably trying to overdo. No, Emilia. In such cases under-do. Although to be honest, nothing could’ve made that dress work. Not a make up, or a hair, or a wig in the world.

golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed

If you think the Dragon Lady failed, well… you got another one coming. There were a few ladies out there who looked as if they just had a fight with a bunch of chickens and the chickens won. What the fuck is up with those quills dresses, that look less hot and romantic and more like some chicken underwater. Amanda Peet hello! Nice to see you, can you please go change. And Rooney Mara… I wasn’t a fan of that dress. It wasn’t that bad but she looked like a posh chicken. Sorry.

golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed-21

And then, just when you thought the bad could not get any worse… there came the ruffles. Jane Fonda decided to be a giant cake. Jada Pinket Smith looked nice… but too much going on. The ruffles, and the slit, and the green dress, and the green shoes, and please stop me anytime. Caitrione Balfe looked not in quills, and not in ruffles, but somehow in everything, and then all wrapped up in this posh nightgown’ish matronly dress. Ugh.

golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed-15 golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed-18

Same night gown approach was done by quite a few ladies. Unsuccessfully of course. I mean who the fuck wakes up and decides to wear a bridal night gown to the Golden Globes. Who in the right mind finds the idea amazing? Oh I know: Corrine Fox, Saoirse Ronan, Natalie Dormer, Lily James, Calista Flockheart, Georgiana Chapman, Zoe Kazan. Oh they took my breath away, and my heart skipped a beat, just when I thought I couldn’t anymore. NOT.

golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed-1 golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed-14 golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed-16 golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed-22 golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed-29 golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed-30

And then don’t even get me started of Melissa Mccarthy. Whhhhhhy? Or Cate Blanchet who looked like she plunged into jelly and then right into some shredding machine. And Maggie Gyllenhaal – was she wearing a posh tablecloth, with a puked ribbon on her shoulder? Oh, that was a dress. My bad. And then I cried when I saw the beautiful Rachel McAdams. The dress wasn’t that bad if you decide to wear nice curtains on the red carpet. Also the colours and the print did her no justice.

I know everybody was in awe with Katy Perry… but seriously the girl needs to come off her unicorn sometimes. She’s drop dead gorgeous and beautiful and her body is amazing, but she looked so sweet in not a very digestable way. Sorry. Not feeling that hair. the dress was just a last minute effort, and it was ok, but something overall was off.

golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed

Amy Schumer. Now I know there’s hype around her, and she’s nice and all, but I’m just not feeling this girl. I laugh at her jokes every now and then, but I also get bored with her character you know what I mean. Hey Amy, the 90’s prom police called, they want their dress back.

golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed

Julliane Moore was nice, but I’m not feeling that colour on her at all. Perhaps too harsh for the worst list, but not good enough for the best dressed list either. Taylor Schilling looked beautiful: hair, makeup, even the idea of that jumpsuit tuxedo style was nice, I just thought it was a little bit ill-fitted, and too casual somehow.

golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed-31

And last but not least… Jennifer Lawrece. Okay… I will get a lot of ‘shut-the-fuck-ups-bitch’ with this one, but I swear, for the love of me, I do not get all the hype around her either. Yes, talent wise, she rocks, but she’s just too caught up in herself if you ask me, and she’s trying too much to be this different version of a star, or actress off duty. But to each their own you know. Dress wise: I loved the colour. But I cannot stand cutouts and simply found her dress wrong, ill fitted, a bit of everything going on, and not much really. Nice neckline, nice colour, nice hair, but overall, I did not like it.

golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed-24

Not a big fan of these gowns either. Seriously Eva Longoria…girl you tryina be a school teacher who just sneaked up on the Golden Globes and is doing a version of the red carpet gown? Aww, that’s sweet.

golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed-3 golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed-4 golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed-5 golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed-6 golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed-7 golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed-10 golden-globes-2016-red-carpet-best-and-worst-dressed-11

So there’s that for my best and worst. Now please feel free to judge (me) away, and tell me which was you most and least fave dress, in the comments below.

‘How do you spend your Saturdays?’ should be the one thought triggering thousands of moments of bliss making up our weekends. IF, of course, there’s no major hangover happening, cause if that’s the case then we’re fucked. Perhaps the question we should address once Friday hits the calendars is ‘If anything were possible, how would you like to spend your Saturday?’

And then… the magic begins.

Of course it’s just a game I’m tempting you into playing, but what else have you gotta do? I know. A lot. But just in case your Friday and what follows got a bit of moody vibes all over them, then perhaps we’re more alike than you’d like to admit. I know, I know, nobody wants to be friends with a demented woman with a penchant for obsessions. But we’ll keep it a secret.

retro-mood-inspiration-39 retro-mood-inspiration-31retro-mood-inspiration-10

In a perfect world I’d live up and drink up my Saturdays in total lustful laziness with no hangover, after a 5 hour-sleep and a lot of liquor. Dressed in my gorgeous man’s sweaters or shirts, with dishevelled hair, because clearly we didn’t get enough sleep, reading the morning newspaper over strong black coffee, and taking black and white photos from our windows of strangers who pass by in their busy weekend lives. We usually like to laugh, listen to 60s and 70s music, smoke, kiss, and make up stories about people passing by our street.

I’d probably look like Brigitte Bardot, speak French if I feel like it, have big boobs, great hair, and that matte lipstick on all the time like those 90s supermodels. I sit by the window, as it rains, at my typing machine and write love letters I’ll never send.

I am of course loaded with dreams and ideas that will one day turn into some of the material stuff we sometimes crave for.

And I go to the cinema in the afternoon to watch my French films, dressed in my Burberry trench coat, with my dishevelled tucked in hair, and bare legs in cowboy boots in November. Of course, I’m not cold because I’m in love.

retro-mood-inspiration-41 retro-mood-inspiration-38 retro-mood-inspiration-34 retro-mood-inspiration-25 retro-mood-inspiration-14

I live in a retro world for a while now, and I confess that thanks to my work I can linger in it a bit longer than anybody else, and I do find a lot of inspiration these days from the past. Perhaps it has to do with my absolute love and lust over cinema and films, over 60s and 70s music that I listen to these days more than ever, and of course, of the 70s fashion trend. Whatever it is it makes my weekends perfect, when I spend hours in books I love, with music that gets me, quotes that make it into my Instagram, tiny bits of things that give me joy when I get moody.

Usually it’s coffee, and bright lips. Who am I kidding. It’s a bottle of wine and watching Seinfeld or Sex and the city, depending on my mood.

One thing I have to add to the list – wandering the streets with my camera. Oh how I long for those days, when my lust for black and white photos is greater than the laziness.

Okay, let’s get one thing straight here: I have by no means found the bloody secret to the world with this retrospection shit. The past has always been a major influence on everything, especially fashion.

I’m just using my moody mood excuse and retro obsession of everything really to linger a little bit more into my world. Who knows what’ll come out of it?

Have a weekend after your own heart!

I rarely do exclamation points, but when I do, damn I mean them. Holiday season is here and you may take that information as you wish, but however you take it, this year I promise you one thing: you will not be a headless chicken on a never-ending hopeless hunt for gifts. No-uh!

What I hate about the whole process of holiday season gifting is how exhausting it is, when in fact it’s supposed to be this fun day, when you take your girlfriends out and you have a blast shopping, having brunch & coffees. But it becomes a nightmare cause we never know WHAT to get WHO, and we panic.

What we forget is the essential – everybody loves 2 things: useful gifts, but fun & great looking. Good taste that is. I spent the entire morning drooling over the holiday gift shop at Redbubble, the brand that you all know I have a soft spot for. Oh, My, God, it’s like the story of my life – I go in to have a look and end up with everything. They’re that great.

If you love modern meets retro art, futuristic retro, quirky, fun prints and illustrations you will LOVE what these guys have —– T-shirts for both women and men, bags, pillows, coffee cups. It’s like Instragram feeds jumping in your lap IRL.

holiday-gifts-redbubble-6 holiday-gifts-redbubble-7 holiday-gifts-redbubble-8

My favourite picks are definitely the pillows, the mugs, and those pouches. I’m speechless you guys, like falling hard over these amazing printed day-to-day-pieces we use, which look like tiny bits that fell from a retro futuristic moment, a Lana del Rey music video, a great Instragam grid.

I have a pillow from Redbubble, a tee, a pair of leggings, and a bag, and they are exactly what you’d expect. Great quality, great shipping, so shop away and gift away this season.

And just cause I can’t help myself, I’ve give you a little peak into my favourite pieces that will make the best gifts this holiday season, for any of your work colleagues, your friends, you family.

Of course you have to click and check out their SHOP for more. No, seriously, you have to.

No, I did not just hit my head, nor am I writing this drunk. I’ve actually never been more serious, and sober for that matter. GREY HAIR is a thing these days, and GRANNY GLAM just became a massive hair trend in 2015. Whaaaaaaaaa?!

Are we loving it ladies? Yes, we are. Why? First of all cause it looks fabulous and second of all, for everything it actually stands for. For decades fashion has been throwing beauty stereotypes our way all centred around the idea of youth, as if being young is a choice and there are tons of immortals and beautiful vampires out there to whose looks we’re all dying to aspire.

To think youth is beauty is normal, but to limit beauty to this concept is ridiculous. Millions of women well beyond the age of 50 or 60 look more stunning than millions of other girls in their 20s. And viceversa. Beauty comes from within, from confidence, from brilliance, from happiness, from kindness, from strength, from love, from attitude, charisma and so much more that rarely has to do with just looks.

Of course as humans subjected to time passing and the oh-so-scary-getting-old-stage in our lives we try to keep ourselves young as much as we can. And yes, hair colouring is one gimmick billions of women of all ages are doing. 1) For the trend of it, and 2) for necessity – covering up those silver hairs.

beauty-trend-grey-hair glam-old-ladies-grey-hair granny-glam-hair-trend

The fact that fashion just put grey hair on a trend pedestal only comes to show us how stupid actually all these beauty-ideas are. Of course a lot can be said about this, and truth be told I’m not even sure if there’s a wrong or right.

The Granny Glam hair trend was started by young girls and beauty bloggers who made their locks silver and kept their makeup sassy: bold lips, perfectly applied eyeliner and lashes, long nails, contouring on point, while their mothers and grandmothers continue to dye their grey hair.

grey-hair-spring-hairstyle-trend-2015-8 grey-hair-spring-hairstyle-trend-2015-17

Still, there are loads of other woman out there, way before this became a trend, with natural silver hair that frankly don’t give a fuck about hair trends and colouring and wear their manes with the pride that only comes with time and self-confidence. And they look stunning.

grey-hair-spring-hairstyle-trend-2015-7 natural-grey-hair-looks

At the end of the day the grey hair trend could be just another fad, that may or may not liberate the idea of beauty for some women. Cause really it’s up to each and every one of us.

I don’t have any silver hairs yet, but I’d go granny glam if only I’d have a glam squad. Now… if I had a head full of grey hair… in all honesty I’m not sure I’d rock that shit. Cause I couldn’t. Of course, I can only hope time strengthens my self-confidence and I might be this posh lady with beautiful silver hair, perfect lips and groomed nails when the time comes.

I might have gotten a bit carried away here on the idea of beauty and youth, but I feel like fashion FINALLY does make a point, and this might just be one of the brilliant fashion movements we’ve all been waiting for. Beauty is after all so very subjective and limiting it to one or two ideas is a complete waste of… beauty itself.

Although the granny hair trend became a look right now, courtesy of young girls (who let’s be honest here, could do whatever they wanted with youth on their side)… some of us will perhaps overthink this in a good way. I mean why do we regard men with a few silver hairs as bloody hot? See my point?

The above rant aside, we are still faced with one question: can everyone do grey hair as a trend, and of so, are there any styling tips?

The thing about grey hair I think is it tends to wash you out, so finding the right shade (sounds silly, but Im guessing when dyeing your locks silver it does come down to more shades to pick from) is crucial. The granny glam hair trend comes in white hair, even a certain shade of platinum, grey, or greyish blue.

Makeup wise you need to go full on, if you ask me, in order to avoid the aforementioned washed-out effect. Bold lips look amazing!

grey-hair-trend street-style-grey-hair-3

Style wise: anything that clashes with the idea of grey hair works its magic. Edgy looks, over-the-top glamorous styles, a bit of rocknroll vibes all create a great style balance against silver hair.

So ladies if you dare to do this incredibly statement and fabulous look kudos to you. If you’ve already got a few silvers in your hair I think right now would be a great time to stop stressing about it.  And last but certainly not least, if you’re already rocking the natural silver mane you are fantastic.

Beauty is just an idea we all have in our minds and hearts and we owe it to ourselves to expand it, break its boundaries and ironically not focus it on looks but rather on what truly makes a woman beautiful. Age and hair have nothing to do with it. My money’s on kindness, love, true friendship, strength, and happiness.

Here’s to all the women out there! #youareallbeautiful

 

 

If the whole red carpet thing had been about nailing best and worst both in one look, a few of the actresses would have been in big trouble, I tell you. Not Marion Cotillard though. She did what I never thought could be done. She wore a dress so incredibly beautiful through its elegance and simplicity that I instantly said, right then and there, the very night of the Oscars 2015, ‘Dayum, she’s my favourite. Amen bitches!’ But then she turned. What in the name of God is that?

marion-cotillard-oscars-2015-red-carppet-best-worst-dressed

A bow wrapped beneath her butt? Oh wait a minute, the haute couture diaper look is in. Ohhhh I get it. Tssk, tssk, tssk, shame on you. I mean me.

marion-cotillard-oscars-red-carpet-2015-back-dress

Other than that I’m in a good mood today as I’m going through the photos and striving, YES striving for the last mean slash bitchy bone in my body, and honestly I can’t find it. For the sake of a funny but nonetheless accurate red carpet post.

On Sunday night I was very little impressed with all the gowns, as if at this point I’m jaded of all the glitz and glam that could leave an AH moment in my heart. Sad. So so sad. That’s what happens if you give an idiot a glamorous treatment for years. Thank God I’m neither rich nor famous, or you’d all have to take me down.

But then… I sat on the Oscars 2015 red carpet event for days in a row, and what do you say what do you know? With the exception of really just a few dresses, I actually think most of them were great. A few were out of this world AMAZING: Emma Stone!!! Everyone get up, sing, clap your hands and say your Amens. This was was beyond stunning! Jennifer Lopez is THE FUCKING QUEEN of red carpet and that’s that. Jamie Chung was beautiful. Rosamund Pike I liked, Giuliana Rancinc was STUNNING, and the rest… well they were gorgeous, but the talk about this red carpet is not really about best and worst, but rather about BEST and WORST ILL FITTED gowns. I mean, what?! Were they not aware the Oscars were happening this year, they had no time to sew and stitch? Looked like it.

emma-stone-best-dressed-oscars-2015emma-stone-hugs-jennifer-anniston-oscars-2015

Cause those I chose worse, were actually not that bad, but were incredibly ill fitted.

So let’s get out hands dirty and let the photos and comments roll.

OSCARS 2015 RED CARPET – BEST DRESSED 

Feels like each actress chose to do her thing and stick to her red carpet recipe. Jennifer Lopez went for an over the top, incredibly elegant and glamorous gown, so ethereal yet sexy and extravagant in a very refined way she made quite an appearance. Her hair I liked not so much, but she stunned. And stunned, and stunned in both her gowns. The one she wore at the Oscars Party was a serious case of Oh. My. God., resembling that over the top extravagant old Hollywood glam with the sequins, and the beads, and the low cut, and the fur. Perfection.

Rosamund Pike went for a classic design and made a statement with the red of the dress and the beautiful details. Jennifer Aniston chose a white-nude-pale gown, simple, classic and effortlessly sexy.

rosamund-pike-oscars-2015-red-carpet87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Sienna Miller was probably one of my favourites as well. I loved everything about that dress and look, and how easily she wears a glamorous elegant gown. Black, classic, and so very beautiful.

sienna-miller-oscars-2015-red-carpet

Giuliana Rancinc looked gorgeous. Flawless from her hair to her makeup to her insane dress. Loved the colour, loved the details, the cut, and she oozed such beauty and confidence it was crystal clear she loved the look herself.

giuliana-rancic-oscars-2015-red-carpet

Jamie Chung was a real-life-doll. In a good way. Loved her princessy style dress and how she chose to keep her hair and makeup natural. Simply beautiful. Naomi Watts ALWAYS nails it on the red carpet, cause she always keeps it simple. Simple cut, simple design, perfect natural hair and makeup, and just a tiny edge with the dress’s cut, and a bit of glam with its fabric. LOVE.

jamie-chung-oscars-2015-red-carpet87th Academy Awards, Oscars, Arrivals, Los Angeles, America - 22 Feb 2015

Margot Robbie chose a very dramatic look that screamed Angelia Jolie style, but she nailed it big. At least I like it. Actually it grew on me. I found it so stunning, and such a red carpet classic statement that I eventually fell in love with it. The low cut, the flawy fabric, the hair, the beautiful makeup were so old Hollywood with just a tad of 70s it was stunning.

margot-robbie-oscars-2015-red-carpet

Reese Witherspoon was… a very proper, but beautiful prom queen. I mean, I’m not sold on the dress, but she looks so good in it I can’t put it in worst, nor ill fitted. The hair I did not like at all. Nor those black stripes, nor the shoulder design. But she rocked it. Pure simplicity.

oscars-2015-red-carpet-reese-witherspoon

Jenna Dewan Tatum looked stunning in that white super glamorous dress. I mean she went for the glam-classic-recipe. Low cut, white gown, a bit of skin (well… a bit more) and nailed it. Great hair, great make up, great jewellery, great arm candy. Ka-Channing!

Jenna-Dewan-Tatum-Oscars-Red-Carpet-2015

Chrissy Teigen loves white a bit too much, but again why fix it if it ain’t broken. Low-cut, checked. High-slit, check, long beautiful hair, checked, white, actually very pale blue dress, checked, blingy and sparkly, and glamorous and hot, checked, checked, checked.

oscars-2015-red-carpet-chrissy-teigen

Dakota Johnnson and her mom, Melannie Griffith were simply beautiful. 50s shades of crap aside, one thing about Dakota that’s clear is that RED is her colour. The dress I loved, but wash’t too crazy on the one shoulder thing. Other than that I kinda liked her, and coming with her mom on the red carpet was such an Aww moment.

oscars-2015-red-carpet-dakota-johnsson

Lupita Nyong’o dress AT THE PARTY (attention) was stunning. That’s a simple but glamorous moment. LOVED it.

oscars-2015-red-carpet-lupita-nyongo

And now… you will kill me BUT I actually thought Rita Ora‘s dressES had such WOW qualities. Or maybe it’s just her new hair and makeup, but I am loving this girl’s over the top red carpet choices. Yes, the party dress, in which she was practically naked was an invitation to staring, and admiring, and hating, and loving at the same time, BUT, let’s just admit it, and choke on our hate, she was beautiful and damn HOT.

Zoe Saldana almost slipped my mind – while I wasn’t blown away by the dress, she’s one gorgeous woman who’d make a paper bag look great. The dress was beautiful but it could have used a bit more va-va-voom.

OSCARS 2015 RED CARPET – WORST/ILL FITTED DRESSED

While I am very much aware of Giuliana’s massive faux-pas-mean comment about Zendaya’s hair, which I thought looked fantastic, I cannot put her dress however into the best dressed, because it was simply not a great dress. Except for her beautiful makeup and hair, there was nothing great about that gown. Poor fabric, that looked cheap, the draping was unnecessary and did her amazing thin frame little justice. I mean if you’re gonna style a girl like Zendaya play up her fab gorgeous body with a stunning cut and design dress. Not a night gown. Not at the Oscars for God’s sake.

zendaya-2015-oscars-red-carpet-best-worst-dressed

America Ferrera… you are not ugly Betty, you are one beautiful woman, so stop choosing clothes that do you no justice. From the waist down the dress was great, but the ill-fitted upper part, was horrible, and I’m not even sure about that green on her, which is ridiculous cause she’s a woman that I think can pretty much get away with any dress colour, so choosing one that looks meh on her was such a long shot. But she did it.

oscars-2015-red-carpet-america-ferreira

Lady Gaga… was lady gaga all right. While the dress was not ugly, it’s not what I would have chosen for her. She seemed to get a bit lost in that gown. Robocop meets The Three Musketeers and both (or all four) go to the Oscars.

oscars-2015-red-carpet-lady-gaga

Wasn’t too crazy about Kelly Osbourne‘s dress and that made me really really really sad. Insert crying emoji here.

oscars-2015-red-carpet-kelly-osbourne

And signing my death sentence here… drumrolls please… Lupita Nyong’o‘s dress was a bit wrong. The beading was beautiful, the cut was amazing, her face was flawless as always, but I just thought it was ill fitted around her neck and her waist. Too bulgy, too beady. I would have loved the halter neck part to be more dainty and not so heavy, and the waist to look more defined.

oscars-2015-red-carpet-lupita-nyongo-beads-dress

Same goes for Julianne Moore. I mean from all the nights and red carpets she looked the least wow at the 2015 Oscars. Those 3 stripes were so so wrong on that dress, or at least the placement they had did her body little justice. Or maybe its just me, who the hell knows anymore.

oscars-2015-red-carpet-julianne-moore

Lorelay Linklater must have read the red carpet memo/dress code wrong. Seriously, was she going for a witchy look, for a boho chic? What the hell was she going for? The door. That’s what she should have gone for. Or a better dress. A simple red dress would have looked stunning on her.

lorelei-linklater-oscars-2015-red-carpet

Jessica Chastain looked so matronly. Beautiful, but so matronly and serious, not in a good way. What the fuck was up with the upper part of that dress? It’s like she couldn’t make up her mind: ‘I’ll go for a sequin dress, or maybe a draped one, or maybe a flowy one. Ah what the hell, I’ll do all of them, and while I’m at it, slap the ugliest pair of shoes on and make a mess out of the biggest red carpet event of the year. Yay!’ 

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Keyra Knightely... I’m not even gonna bother. I’d dress better with my eyes closed, and she continues to miss it with her eyes wide open, and all the best designers and stylists at her feet. But then again… maybe it was just me.

keyra-knightely-oscars-2015-red-carpet

I was also a bit disappointed in Kerry Washington‘s dress. Peplum? Please. Just stop already with the peplum. We’ve all had enough of this. We get it, it’s refined. (Personally I don’t get all the hype around peplum.) Also I thought it was a bit ill fitted and the upper part was too disproportionate from the lower part, but y’all love peplum so if you’ll excuse me, I’m just gonna go hit my head into the wall right now, and get some sense into me.

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

And then… there were the models at the Oscars Party. We get it. You are Goddesses with flawless skin, and legs, and bums, and arms, and faces, and thighs, and everything in between, but you might have as well showed up in your birthday suits. Actually it wasn’t even about showing up half naked and going commando, I mean I go naked on the streets all day and us girls have stopped using underwear since 1950’s so… You see what I mean?

oscars-2015-red-carpet-models-vanity-fair-party

Seriously though, Irina Shayk what the hell was going through your mind? Or those 3 other lassies for that matter? ‘Oh look we got invited to the Oscars!!! Yay, let’s jump into a circle and wear black witches uniforms. Wouldn’t that be cool?’ ‘Yessss!!!’ Giggled the other 2 in an overly excited chorus.

Irina-Shayk-oscars-2015-red-carpet

Gwyneth Paltrow probably tried a bit too much to look like a real-size chicken. At least she nailed that! yay. Patricia Arquette... what the fuck? I’m usually not a fan of 2 toned dresses, and never in black and white, cause I always think they look so waitress-attire, and penguin-on-a-loose. Well, I’m right.

gwyneth-paltrow-oscars-2015-red-carpet-gwyneth-paltrowoscars-2015-red-carpet-patricia-arquette

Felicity Jones, why didn’t you get the big one? (dress)

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Behati Prinsloo… not feeling that dress at all, while she looks stunning, that necklace killed it. In a bad way. It was a necklace that I thought ruined it for Scarlett Johannsen as well… or maybe that hair, or that colour. Don’t know what it was but she kinda looked like she swallowed a broom stick. In a bad colour.

behati-prinsloo-oscars-red-carpet-2015scarlettjohansson-oscars-2015-red-carpetSo maybe I’m wrong, although I always say I’m right. One thing’s certain though. Well more actually:

  1. I am usually more wrong than right.
  2. I might be overdosing on red carpets right now, cause I feel like I bumped my head and was left jaded of all that usually impresses people.
  3. It’s just clothes and dresses, and actors are just humans, who’s jobs are to act, not to please our eyes in overly expensive gowns.
  4. Thank God the red carpet season is done, otherwise I’d have gone off the rail. Legit off the rail.

Oh wait a minute. I’ve been off the rail for a long time… ah well… See ya!!!

 

 

After all this time, I still don’t know whether or not Fashion Month is the best or the worst of time in a fashion-person’s life. Of course it’s the best… but it’s also unbelievably hectic.

Imagine the traveling to 4 fashion capitals in just one month, and attending so many shows, you lose count off, each show lasting up to 20 minutes, and then rushing over to God knows which borough to attend the next. All this… done in supposedly amazing clothes, yes, but also in freezing temps, in towns which you’re not too familiar with… only so that at the end of the day you gotta get your ass to your room and write, instagram, tweet… and so on. Work, while all is still fresh in your mind, and interest to the particular shows still aroused.

Who am I kidding. Seriously. If you’re so lucky as to be invited to all fashion weeks, and can go, complaining is like so so so so so very inappropriate.

_A2X0033_A2X0083

Okay, now that that’s out of the way let’s get down to business. New York Fashion Week fall 2015 is almost coming to an end, which means, we’ve seen a bunch of pretty damn amazing collections, have had our crush-on-designers-not disappoint us and have made new crushes. I, for one, can’t keep track of them anymore. It figures though. I’m always the first to fall for something and the first to get bored with it.

_A2X0147_A2X0285

NY has pretty much given us an idea of what 2015 Fall will be about in terms of trends, and if there’s ONE thing ALL collections had in common that’s a certain coolness and sassiness to the looks.

A woman with an attitude. Take that as you may, bottom line is, regardless of style, designers were all smitten with a certain power and empowerment oozed by us girls, whether or no we’re rocknroll kids, grown-up professionals, bohemian goddesses, glamorous queens, there’s a bit of each in all of us and a bit of femme fatale we should all embrace and showcase, subtly or not.

Girls do rule the world people, and 2015 will be just about that! 

_A2X0475_AG002370Banana-Republic-16-1366marahoffman

Here are a few TRENDS and my favourite looks from NYFW 2015 fall:

1. FUR. Do not roll your eyes now. You might have gotten enough of this look, but it’s really far from over. Fur everything and anything is in.

alice-olivia-04-1366carherreraJAS_0067j-crew-021-1366MARC0031MARC0365MARC0569OSC_0631

2. 70s are still going strong, with turtlenecks, plunging necklines, Patti Smith inspired looks, leather, fur, over-the-knee-skirts, fluidity boho-styles.

_UMB6096_UMB6808j-crew-001-1366j-crew-011-1366JAS_0681

3. Boots will be massive in all designs and styles, from over the knee to under the knee, to ankle, to heels, to sporty.

_AG002020MARC0710VER_0356VER_0108

4. Long Coats.

dlalice-olivia-06-1366jpeckhamONP_0327

5. Monochromatic looks. A lot of designers went for the all-red looks, all-blue, all-green and there is a certain kind of glamour and muted elegance to dressing in just one colour.

_A2X0563_AG19067MARC0161ONP_0387ONP_0420MARC0627Banana-Republic-05-1366

6. High slits. Nobody’s yet getting over that Angelina leg.

VER_0065JAS_0201JAS_0443

7. Nudes, browns, camel. Again a prolongation and variation of those 70s, in both glamour as well as more bohemian music-festival kind of brown tones.

Before wrapping this shit up maybe I should address the elephant in the room: Kanye West’s collection for Adidas… Although my lack of falling-flat-on-my back here over his talent as a designer and as a God is biased by my gradual dislike for his person, I gotta be honest here – what he’s done for Adidas is great, but not in the least innovative. The models of all sizes? Done before. The deconstruction on some designs? Done.

He was trying to go for a bit of shocking, but not too much, a bit of fashion, but not too much, a bit of weirdness, again not too much as to not scare, but enough to kinda shock those fainted at heart… I don’t know, to be honest I wasn’t even looking at the shoes and don’t have a fucking clue if that’s good of bad.

Also, if I’m completely honest here, the show was okay, it’s just his constant rant and self sufficiency, his God complex and how he’s asked a question like: how are you, and he’ll start giving you the genesis, you know. That’s what pisses me off and triggers my bias-ness.

_AG18853 _AG18898 _AG19010 kanye

Oh, oh, oh, oh… and how about that front row? It’s the only thing he could have had 110% certainty on nailing. Yet… I can’t help the smirk on my face for the somehow staged spectacle. I mean, do you really expect us to believe Beyonce is besties with Kim? Or Anna Wintour?

Ahhh what the hell do I know. Sometimes things are exactly what they seem, and I’m might just having a case of waking up on the wrong side of the bed today.

Byyyye.

 

2014-NYFW-streetstyle-best-dressed-3This is a post on and for fashion addicts. Yes chicas this is STREET STYLE at New York Fashion Week. Cause why the hell not, right?

I mean seriously if I see one more thing about the inherent holiday frenzy (yes Valentine’s Day, I’m looking at you) I swear I’ll turn sick. There’s only so much pink, reds, hearts, forced (or not) love, one can take.

I know yesterday I was preaching this, but give a girl the right excuse and she’ll turn it into fashion. So anyway, on braking the routine of the quite predictable week (yes more Valentine’s Day posts are to follow. What?) why not give in into some ridiculously lustful extravagant, exaggerated, avatgarde, fashion frenzy the street styles at FWs hold? Ding2014-fall-FashionWeek-NY-ststreetstyleThough I haven’t yet seen all collections, I wonder if the trends on the streets match the ones preached by designers?

Not for this season, for the next. Cause you know, if the creme de la creme of the fashion world is not precocious, I don’t know who is. Well… when you’re rich and famous, or are the biggest editor/PR or fashion blogger, that’s not very difficult, more so, wearing the newest of the new comes with the job description. off-duty-models-NYFW-2014-f2014-NYFW-streetstyle2014-NYFW-streetstyle-20Trends ON & OFF Runways? 

  • Oversized seemed to be a huge look on the runways. Streets stuck to it.
  • Socks in sight with heels, sandals and any shoe will be massive, and the the gurus know it. And did it.
  • Extremes are still in, so basically ALL is still IN. Grungy black, dark looks live happily and side by side with an explosion of colors, prints, patters in the most wild, funky mixes ever.
  • Red lips rule man.
  • So do the details that make a look: bags, funky stilettos or weird shoes. Nails. Hats. Face Masks.
  • 90s accents, a bit of 70s. So yeah basically retro inspo is still a thing.

And now… let us marvel at how the gurus do it… :) 2014-NYFW-streetstyle-12014-NYFW-streetstyle-22014-NYFW-streetstyle-32014-NYFW-streetstyle-42014-NYFW-streetstyle-5 (2)2014-NYFW-streetstyle-52014-NYFW-streetstyle-62014-NYFW-streetstyle-72014-NYFW-streetstyle-82014-NYFW-streetstyle-112014-NYFW-streetstyle-12winter-street-style-Fashion-weekwhat-to-wear-to-FWmodels-off-duty-2014-NYFW-streetstylemiroslava-duma-2014-NYFW-streetstylemilitary-style-2014-NYFW-streetstyleblogger-2014-NYFW-streetstylechic-2014-NYFW-streetstylebloggers-2014-NYFW-streetstylebest-dressed-2014-NYFW-streetstyle-1best-dressed-2014-NYFW-streetstyle2014-NYFW-streetstyle-best-dressed-12014-NYFW-streetstyle-shoes2014-NYFW-streetstyle-172014-NYFW-streetstyle-editors2014-NYFW-streetstyle-222014-NYFW-streetstyle-132014-NYFW-streetstyle-142014-NYFW-streetstyle-best-dressed-52014-NYFW-streetstyle-242014-NYFW-streetstyle-best-dressed-322014-NYFW-streetstyle-bloggers2014-NYFW-streetstyle-detailsstreetstyle-2014fall-NYFWstreetstyle-at-NYFW-2014street-style-at-fashion-weeNYfashionWeek-streetstyleNYFW-streetstyle-best-dressFashion is simply getting better and better, dismissing all rules, effing all conformities and praising what actually matters: personal style. Show me your take on a certain trend. Or if you hate them all, do your own shit. Give a big fuck to all that’s not you and experiment, wear whatever the hell you love. Be vibrant and cool. And always, always have fun. That’s what it’s all about.

Enough rambling. Who the hell died and made me a preacher anyway?

NYFW-street-styleSeriously? Only an alien going around naked would not get this. FW street style is the ultimate expression of style, of clothes, creativity and lack of fear when donning the craziest thing ever. For the past week, New York streets are swirling with the coolest people, hipsters, bloggers, editors, photographers, writers, stylists, celebrities, models – who all have 2 things in common. 1. They adore fashion and 2. They own it out there style wise. It’s Spring/Summer 2014 Collections Time and fashion’s creme de la creme is in the Big Apple. Crazy colors, prints, mismatched trends or patters, textures, accessory abundance, crazy hair, makeup, vintage old wrinkled clothes alongside high-end brands, ripped jeans, posh heels or dirty old sneakers, caps, hats, bags, clutches… all adorn these hipsters and make us fashion-fantasize about clothes.

Sometimes it’s the opulence of colors, textures, prints or designer brands that captures the eye, but other times (and this is a massive lesson in progress for us all), it’s the most simple outfit, last decade jeans or old T-shirt that has us all stare in complete awe at these cool kids. It’s style. Beyond trends. Beyond catwalks. But made up of some unfulfilled love for a certain decade, for old pieces that bare some meaning to each wearer. Or it’s the lack of interest. Careless, un-studied outfits scream personality and raw attitudes, and that’s what we want. We’ve all had enough of those polished magazine faces and perfect clothes, of ads that well… look like ads that sell. Give us a quirky way of wearing that Marc Jacobs top or a funky approach to a Carolina Herrera skirt, and we’ll take it. Or better yet, who needs them when you’ve got imagination and a strong urge for braking the street visual monotony? street-style-new-yorknew-york-fashion-week-streefashion-week-streetstyleSomeone once said there’s a new Fashion Week going on outside the shows, each year. And I agree. It’s more relate-able , doable, more genuine. And it’s always a case of ‘‘all is in, nothing is out”. He/She who’s more unafraid to explore and get style creative lands the pic that will inspire millions at home. Oh… and build in us an unquenchable shopping urge, and the promise to get more creative with our looks starting with… Monday. Now I ask you again, how can we not love FW street style?
