Why Do We Give So Much Shit About Brad & Angelina’s Divorce?

Because after everything cools down, Brad will finally come to his senses and marry me. If, of course he actually came to his senses, and I were not married already. Since that ship has sailed let’s talk about this #brangelina phenomenon that makes it impossible for me to go online these days without being bombarded by strangers’ heartbreaks over their split. What. The. Fuck.

Divorce or no divorce there has always been a mass obsession with both Angelina & Brad, first separately when each of them existed prior to each other, and Angie was this wild cat who made out with her brother and showed up with Billy Bob on the red carpet in leather pans and a tee, while he was grabbing her boobs, and he – Brad Pitt that is – lead a very pretty and beautiful-couple-next-door kinda life with Jennifer Ansiton – America’s sweetheart.

The obsession with the 2 sky rocketed when Brad Pitt left Jennifer to be with Angelina and then the most beautiful people in the world were together, with a classic story to back them up, giving a lot of emotional support for all home wreckers and love triangle victims.

A billion years after and millions of kids later (yes I am being sarcastic!) Angelina files for divorce cause of maybe another woman. Ha! talk about a bloody karma. Even if it ain’t so, the word wide web is having a blast with Jennifer Aniston’s memes about the divorce.

I admit I love watching those, and no, it will not make me a lesser feminist if I laugh. It is the irony of life, and we’d do the same were it 2 men, trust me. And again I say, like I did here, we need to get our fucking noses out of our asses and stop labelling everything with anti-feminism and politically correct bullshit. We’ll soon start living so correctly and lifelessly as if we’re fucking walking on eggshells.

Angelina divorced Pitt cause of whatever reasons, and as much as the media speculates we’ll never know. And THAT is OK people. It’s her prerogative, as well as Brad’s to do whatever the hell he pleases now.

The reason we give so much shit is because of their story, how they met, the odds of them not remaining together, and then oops they got married, and then what do you know… they split.

If I were to not be so politically correct here I’d say she pisses me off a little bit, for trying to come out smelling of roses from this one, when in fact she was bathed in shit a few years back. What with that love triangle. And the other reason is cause I do find it kinda funny how she so suddenly and secretly drops the bomb divorce on Mr. Pitt who sounds as if he was as shocked as we were. Sort of.

And d’you know what? Assuming these things about her does not immediately place me in any team or anti-feminism movement. In fact, I’m quite the advocate of women and our rights, but just to be clear on one thing – being so, does not mean we gotta stick by something we don’t feel right in our hearts just because it’s spoken or done by and for another woman. Really now. Can we for a second live and see everything with no hidden agenda, and other than in terms of gender and sex? Thank you.

This is just a love story, and marriage. And it’s a big deal for US TOO cause they are one of the most beautiful people alive, in whose fairytale some believed.

Let’s indulge now in some pics of the 2, and then just let it go, stop with the bloody nonsese of love is dead and we’re so crushed and all that. Next time know better than to trust fairytales. Life is one helluva a ride, it ain’t a fairy tale that’s true, but it’s bloody great as it is.

10 Trends For Spring 2017 At New York Fashion Week

Some things are better left untouched and undisclosed until the right time comes along. Yeah, not the trends case though. Not when it’s Fashion Week frenzy and my brain seems to only work in terms of sartorial criticism and trend spotting. So there’s that.

Yesterday I did a brief report on best runway looks so far from New York Fashion Week 2017, and man had I wish I’d waited a day longer so I’d include Anna Sui, Michael Kors, and Ralph Lauren. I am crying right now. I literally just wish to be a runway girl draped in Ralph Lauren SS2017 clothes.

That’s not gonna happen anytime soon, so I might as well stick to my guns here and disclose you my Eureka moment of the trends we could keep an eye on for Spring 2017. If we’re into that sort of shit you know.

1. Sports-mania

I’ll shout an amen for this one while squatting as low as I can and hope the sporty-athelisure-gym-inspiried-trend never never ever ever ever dies. Like ever. What’s new for next year: perhaps a bit more masculine inspired with a dash of scuba diving and swimming mood going on.

New York Fashion Week TrendsNew York Fashion Week Trends

2. The 80s Comeback

Well… it ain’t as obvious as I’d hoped, nor as powerful but it is slowly making a comeback. Sequins, broad shoulders, cinged waists, pencil skirts in midi length, massive kitsch earrings… 80s alright.

New York Fashion Week Trends

3. Time Traveling to the 40s

To be honest it’s a pure speculative thought, but I really had glimpses of the post world war fashion: reinvented, uber feminine, but incredibly powerful and sexy, in high waists, cinged, belts, pencil skirts, midi length, beautiful exquisite classic hourglass designs.

4. Baby Blues

Never in my life have I seen so many blue outfits. You know what? I think each year all designers have a common sartorial craving which they all secretly decide to give into and make us all mortals follow them. For spring 2017 it’s blue.

blue-ss2017blue-trend

5. Black & White

Overall Spring 2017 is less a mess of chaotic prints and colours, and more a structured, powerful, sexy, feminine, slightly sporty, slightly retro season. There is a lot of all white looks and all black looks, and then, there’s a combo of the 2 and I love it. It’s clean but sophisticated and very refined in a not so serious way. It’s quite welcoming after seasons of too much bloom and prints that were thrown up on all the outfits in the world.

black-and-white-trendwhite-lookswhite-trendblack-looksblack-trend-2017

6. Tamed Prints

Well halle-fucking-lujah for this. Spring 2017 is all about tamed bloom inspired prints, little flowers, bigger flowers, but nothing too crazy or wild. And then some designers who also dab into the gypsy-ethnic-hobo-cowboy looks use geomatric prints and ethnic inspired patterns.

prints-2017prints-trend

7. Trench Coats

Wait what?! And with trench-coats come quite a significant number of furs, and jackets, and invasion of outwear that first left me speechless and outcasted: ‘Like, what the fuck is happening, am I watching the spring summer collection?!’, but then it hit me, well… it is spring, which tends to be less hot than summer, and in places like London you do need quite a significant outwear during the day. We can’t all wear dresses, tank tops, and bras now can we? Temperature wise it’s just not possible.

8. Power Suits

Dayumn. They’re strong, empowering, yet feminine and sophisticated. Some designers have slouchy power suits, a la 80s, some have a more retro 40s version of a pant-suit, some are uber sexy a la 90s done in 2017. All in all they look fab and I love their massive comeback.

power-suitspower-suits-trend

 

9. Hobo Queen

Think of all the romantic colours and dainty dresses, and lace and granny inspired fabrics and wear them all as if you’re this rocknrol queen with either an edgy alter ego or a shy one, a difference in attitude that gives different vibes to the same trend. This trend is pure perfection, it’s new, and such a breath of fresh air.

boho-queenboho-chiccool-queenhobo-chic

10. Bras Are the New Tops

Yep. Better start working on that six-pack. Or not. Actually this trend as risqué as it may appear, it’s basically just another version of the crop top meets the bralette. I like it. And like the sports thing, I’m glad it ligers for yet another season.

bras-tops

One more day to breath in and breath out, and then London FW begins. Until then we can still talk about NYFW in the Facebook comments.

The BEST RUNWAY LOOKS From New York Fashion Week Spring 2017

Think of all the best bits in fashion for the past years, now toss ’em all in some magical machine, and ta-daaa: take a step back, sip that latte (or wine, why the hell not) and watch the most beautiful looks ever roll out in front of you. It’s gonna be a great spring/summer 2017.

After watching some collections straight off the runway at NYFW Spring 2017 I gotta say a few thinks aka trends stand out for next year: a lot of white, trench-coats (or bath robes), bras as tops, athleisure or sports-mania still strong, a lot of blue, some 50s silhouettes, 80s accents, slouchiness, romanticism, garbage-grunge.

You might have thought I fell off the face of the earth, but nah-ha, I was just absorbed into the sartorial world of next year, and I can tell you this much. I am obsessed with some looks from designers I never thought I’d love so much: hello DKNY, and Lacoste.

I guess all my gym life is rubbing off on my fashion life.

New York Fashion Week Spring 2017

Things I loved about NYFW Spring 2017: that sports in fashion trend is not dead, in fact it’s quite strong and Alexander Wang’s & Adidas collab stand testimony to that. Amen! And his collection was absolutely amazing. I loved Lacoste for all the same reasons and all the long trenches inspired by long retro masculine bath-robes. Shut the front door.

I loved the mix of masculine with romantic vibes from Zimmerman, all those white shades of white and lace and see-through. So all-white looks will be a massive trend. Can I also speculate on summer nude thigh-high boots?!

If you think crop tops are passé think again. We’ll be baring just a little more than our midriffs: bras are the new tops. Probably by 2020 we’ll all go topless or something.

Slouchy is the new sexy. So maay power suits with a bit of grunge meets 80s Detective Colombo vibe. With a dash of sporty.

Ultra feminine and hot as fuck was Altuzarra’s collection. If I could choose one set of clothes to die in or live in for eternity that’d be it. Maybe a bit of DKNY here and there, and I’m done.

Of course I will have to keep some room for Marc Jacobs, and Michael Kors par example. But we’ll see.

Things I liked less about this NYFW Spring 2017: that I missed the Kanye wave, so I can’t really articulate much on that. And THAT I hate. But, from what I’ve seen the clothes, as bland as some might say they were – I LOVED. I’m just really into all this laid back sports sexy hobo chic with a dash of urban fashion right now. You know, fashion that’s suppose to look like £100 when in fact you’re splurging at least one or two zeros on top of that.

I wasn’t too impressed with designers’ collections I used to adore in the past, like DVF, or Victoria Beckham. Zac Posen didn’t do much for me either. But what the fuck do I know.  My sartorial barometer work by how much my heart stops or skips a beat at the sight of a collection. Yeah. Didn’t really happen to the ones above.

Of course I don’t have the best and most functional emotional system aka heart out there, but I always kinda followed it. My brain tags along sometimes but more often than not it’s quite a few steps behind.

Whatever.

So here are my fave looks from NYFW Spring 2017. So far.

Why Is Everyone Obsessed With Drake’s Sweater In ‘Hotline Bling’?

Do we really need to have this conversation?! Okay, no need to pull my hand here. We’ll talk Drake. God knows everyone else is, with the www blowing up these days over whatever the hell this fucking gorgeous man is doing. Yesterday he dropped the video for ‘Hotline Bling’ and the world picked at it inch by inch, from his way way way way too funny dance moves (how can you not love him seriously?!), to the music (he talented ok!), to his sartorial choices.

But who gives a shit about his ‘dancing-like-a-drunk-dad-at-a-wedding’-moves – oh, oh, oh, oh, I’m sorry the Cha-cha-cha, my bad, my bad – when the song is so good and he looks beyond hot in his boots, and knits, and hoodies. Casual, cool, cozy – it’s like the man is a walking good-time-invitation. Netflix, chill, white wine. Fucking forget Netflix at this point.

drake-sweater-hotline-bling-11 drake-sweater-hotline-bling-21 drake-sweater-hotline-bling-123

But the ‘WHY’ lingers on.

Why are we all talking about his mock-turtleneck sweater? Or are we just fooling ourselves we’re talking Drake’s sweater in ‘Hotline Bling’, instead of Drake alone? Both. YES, we might as well come clean on this one. Drake is very appealing to the eyes, and we’re always on and on about him. How could we not? He’s got a song for every situation. Lyrics for every mood. And that smile. And he a real man too.

“Drake would never treat me like this.” is the ubiquitous meme that’s become the death of basically every male human being on the face of this earth who’s not treating his lady right.

You add this on top of his brilliant talented ass, of course the man will break the internet with or without a fucking sweater. Still… he in a sweater and he killing it. The cozy man sweater – turtleneck or mock-turtleneck to be more precise – will 100% be the trendiest and most coveted piece of clothing in menswear history. Mark my words.

When last fall it was a parade of turtlenecks courtesy of the 70s fashion happening, I got a little carried away and named the trend unisex – went further on actually, as I so often do (usually resulting into a complete embarrassment and total fool of myself) and made a post about how men should wear turtlenecks. Of course nobody gave the slightest fuck about it, and all the men in my life laughed in my face when I showed up with this trend on the table.

Well… who’s laughing now motherfuckers? All running to the stores like headless chickens to get the Drake’s Acne Studios sweater?

I live up to my reputation of walking-embarssament and exaggeration though, so again I am stating – the quite obvious now – TURTLENECKS are the new IT sweaters in menswear for 2015 autumn. If I stood no chance last season with this trend-calling, Drake came to my aid, pulled one turtleneck over his head-and-body and he’s got you round his little finger. I don’t blame you, the man could sell sand in plain desert.

drake-sweater-hotline-bling-3 drake-sweater-hotline-bling-5 drake-sweater-hotline-bling-7 drake-sweater-hotline-bling-14 drake-sweater-hotline-bling-18

How do male human beings wear men turtlenecks? Listen to a lot Drake, perhaps his manliness and sexiness and good ol’ wholeness will rub off on you. Learn the cha-cha a la Drake. Get some of those sweatpants we can see your religion through. What?!

Get the badass boots. Practice that smile. And talk to us in Drake language please. Otherwise, move along.

The Drake ‘Hotline Bling’ look below.

drake-sweater-hotline-bling-8

The sweater obsession is real though, but it’s not really about the sweater is it? It’s about all the above, and all Drake stands for really, as pretentious as that sounds. Yes, women love Drake. So what? In this very pop-culture-crush lies the whole obsession explanation: we want the real thing, sensitive real man, who can hold us in their cozy sweaters, kiss and cuddle, fuck with no restraints, love with no boundaries, cry when they fucked up, throw a fist when necessary, stand up to and by us, support us, don’t get chicken shit scared, admit when they do, be a good man to us and a bad boy to the rest. You know… Levelling up to THAT ain’t such a walk in the park, but I guess nicking a sweater from a style icon who stands for all the above will perpetuate the illusion of being somewhat similar. One can only hope, right guys?

 Regarding the sweater in Hotline Bling, stop fussing will ya’?! I got your back with a bunch of Drake sweaters below.

*

And now if you’ll excuse me I’ll go fall in love some more, with a man who will never disappoint me from any point of view, cause he’s a fantasy. But that’s not the point. Ugh.

VICTORIA’S SECRET SHOW 2013! What’s The Secret Behind Perfect Bodies & Hotness?

models-at-victoria-secret-showOnce a year, right before the winter holidays we get a dose of jealousy & sighing, courtesy of Victoria’s Secret Show! All topped with the promise of changing our lifestyles in an undying hope to look as fabulous as the hottest angles and models on earth, a delusion that ends right before the show’s over but lingers on as we gift ourselves with the sexiest lingerie out there. Hence prolonging the same hope. runway-victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013models-victorias-secret-fashion-show-20132013 Victoria’s Secret Show had 6 themes all filled with glitter, feathers, spectacular lingerie and whatnot – The British Invasion, Birds Of Paradise, Pink Network, Parisian Nights, Shipwrecked, Snow Angles and the show was opened by none other than the stunning Candice Swanepoel in the most beautiful, most expensive bra. candice-swanepoel-victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013backstage-models-victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013candice-swanepoel-backstage-VS-2013While all models looked beyond humanly perfect my favorites have always been and will always be: Candice Swanepoel, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima. They make it all look so easy, effortless and sexy. Yet, as all models have confessed the close-to-perfection bodies they have, may be a thing of great genes & fast metabolism, but above all, it’s massive hard work, that as Candice says, given it’s their job, turned into their lifestyle. On her Instagram account she posted a few holiday pics of her showing a skinny body, no boobs and a bit of cellulite on her bum!!! What? The caption said: remember nobody’s perfect. So many women and girls thanked her for that.  adriana-lima-victoria-secret-2013adriana-lima-victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-22victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-25victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-21victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-28victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-adrianaLimaThose abs, fab legs and perfect bums are the result of hard work, but when there’s a show such as Victoria’s Secret it’s also a tone of makeup, great lightning and marketing.

Truth is VS is about this dream world where everyone is beautiful, sexy, confident, happy in the most opulent luxurious and seductive atmosphere ever. Best models, best bodies, luscious hair, infinite legs, perfect bums, great music, la creme de la creme of the entertainment world – it’s an insight into a magical universe that makes everyone feel prettier. Every year the show is packed with the finest pieces and the most exquisite wings making the girls appear like perfect goddesses as they strut their hotness on powerful music, throwing kisses at us. 2013-victorias-secret-fashion-show2013-VS-fashion-showbackstage-victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013beauty-looks-victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013For us it’s pure entertainment whether from the comfort of our homes or from there, if we’re lucky enough to score a ticket. But for the models it’s a continuous and harsh battle of making the shortlist. These perfect angles, are not just models, they’re girls with attitude and great bodies. Skinny, but healthy looking, exuding beauty, classic sexiness, and seduction.victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-1victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-4victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-5Then it’s the music. Bands and artists are always hoping to make it as the headliners for this show. The music is always strong, in tune with what’s happening out there and empowering. Loved Rihanna & Maroon 5 in the past. Can’t say the same thing about Taylor Swift. But that’s just pure personal dislike in her for no actual reason. Wasn’t  too sold on Cara Delevingne & Karlie Kloss as model choices for the show. I love them, they’re amazing models and girls, but I think they’re a bit too edgy/editorial for VS. Just cause when you think Victoria Secret you think about that classic mysterious incredibly sexy beauty a woman has. british-invasion-victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013taylor-swift-performing-victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013taylor-swift-victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013karlie-kloss-victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-32Until December 10th, when the show airs, we’ll just have to do with a few pics, and videos from 2013 VS Show and call it like it is: one of the biggest & hottest lingerie and fashion events out there. Let’s have a look at what it was like this year: doutzen-victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013hair-makeup-victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013hair-victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013makeup-victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013victoriasecret-fashion-show-2013victoria-secret-modelsvictoriasecret-show-2013victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-3victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-7victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-8victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-10victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-11victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-12victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-13victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-16victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-17victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-20victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-24VS-fashion0showvictorias-secret-fashion-show-201331victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-modelsvictorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-34victorias-secret-fashion-show-2013-28 (2)What’s the SECRET?

On what makes a woman sexy, hot and incredibly seductive in the most natural way possible, all models agreed: CONFIDENCE. 😉
