Sure Jourdan Dunn is a model, and yes it’s kind of her job to look great. But the newest face of Maybelline New York outdid herself at amfAR’s 21st Cinema Against AIDS Gala, completely owning the ‘red’ carpet in Balmain Fall 2014 ready-to-wear.
Jourdan chose a mustard colored dress from the Balmain collection, a midi-length number that featured ropes of a braid-like material that was intricately woven throughout.
The direction of the weaving combined with the obvious heft of the fabric create quite the hourglass silhouette for Jourdan.
Side-swept loose curls, and a deep matte red lip serve to further strengthen the ‘Contemporary meets Old Hollywood’ image Jourdan is serving.
Love them or hate them, but the Kardashian/Jenner clan is here to stay. And they’re multiplying.
No longer are sisters Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe Kardashian the only headline makers in the family; younger siblings Kendall and Kylie Jenner have been steadily establishing themselves in the industry, too.
Kendall’s on track to becoming quite the runway model having walked some major shows last season including Givenchy and Chanel.
With such high profile gigs comes a high profile, jet-setting lifestyle that Kendall’s taking to like a fish to water.
After attending the opening ceremony of the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival, Kendall took in the city wearing a chic summer ensemble.
Kendall wore a linen playsuit from the Longchamp Spring 2014 collection paired with Chanel lace-up espadrilles, a bright red lip, and oversized sunglasses.
It’s a perfect summer look that’s both casual and stylish, and there are several wallet friendly alternatives to Kendall’s pieces that make her outfit accessible to almost anyone.
Whether X-Men: Days of Future Past proves to be a creative hit (because we know it will be a financial one) or not, we can be grateful to the cinematic franchise for giving us an excuse to obsess over actress Fan Bingbing and her impeccable sense of style.
For the world premiere of X-Men: Days of Future Past at the Jacob Javits Center in New York, Chinese actress Fan Bingbing pulled out all the stops, choosing a dramatic creation from the Georges Chakra Fall 2012 Couture collection befitting a true superhero.
Featuring a classic column silhouette, Fan’s Georges Chakra gown earns its couture credentials in its sleeves.
Gracefully falling the length of the dress to pool at the floor, the sleeves are detailed at the shoulders in layers upon layers of delicately placed feathers, the kind of attention seen only in couture garments.
Premiering Days of Future Past on her home turf of Beijing, China, Fan opted for a Zac Posen gown that was as different in style from her Georges Chakra number as possible, although no less stunning.
From the Zac Posen Fall 2014 Collection, Fan’s strapless dress was another decisive choice for the actress, with its winged neckline reminiscent of many a super heroine costume.
That’s where the comic book comparisons end though, as the remainder of Fan’s dress was classic ballgown featuring a full skirt with a high-low hemline.
Don’t be fooled by the rocks that she’s got, Jennifer Lopez is still just Jenny from the block, and to prove it she took to the American Idol stage wearing a budget friendly frock from everyone’s favorite e-tailer ASOS.
Jennifer Lopez has made the most of her spot on the American Idol judges panel.
Not only has La Lopez parlayed the gig into a career rebounding move, but she’s also managed to use the Idol platform to introduce a new generation to her signature flashy style.
But for every high fashion moment, there’s always a “Jenny from the block” counter-moment to remind us that it’s the attitude that makes J.Lo, J.Lo. Even when she’s wearing Topshop or the like, Jennifer serves like no other.
Jennifer wore the neon hued ASOS dress ($86) to a recent Idol taping, and between her styling choices and the batch!tastic attitude she’s serving, one would be hard pressed to believe there was any part of the diva’s ‘fit that cost less than $100.
Call them the ladies in red. Kat Graham from The Vampire Diaries and fellow actress/celebrity offspring Zoe Kravitz both recently stepped out wearing the same T by Alexander Wang ensemble. But who wore it best?
Kat, who’s known for her bold and out there ensembles, kept things relatively tame on this occasion as she made her arrival at the Sprint Sound Sessions in NYC.
Leaving the extensions at home, Kat styled her chin length hair into a sleek style that showcased a flawless face done in a neutral palette.
It has to be difficult living the celebrity life sometimes. With paparazzi shots a Hollywood reality of life, if you’re a celeb that cares anything about your image you have to always be dressed for a photo op, even if you’re running errands.
It’s these candid moments that separate the celebs who have great stylists from the ones who have great style.
But we’ve never seen stripes elevated to such a premiere worthy level.
Taraji’s Charlotte Ronson frock featured a long-sleeve sheer striped overlay with a solid black lining beneath.
The dress was eye catching enough on it’s own, but Taraji completed her ensemble with a couple of boldly hued Jimmy Choo accessories including a pair of ‘Lance’ heeled sandals ($725) and a matching ‘Reese’ clutch ($650).
There’s no denying the beauty (both inner and outer) of Academy Award winning actress Lupita Nyong’o, but it’s refreshing to see a beauty like hers celebrated on an international stage.
For their annual Most Beautiful issue, People Magazine has named Lupita Nyong’o this year’s most beautiful woman in the world.
On receiving the accolade from People, Lupita said:
“It was exciting and just a major, major compliment,” adding, “I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen.”
We’re only four months into the year, but 2014 is already Lupita’s to own. With an Academy Award win under her belt, ad campaigns with both Miu Miu and Lancôme Paris, Lupita is changing the way the Hollywood game is played one major achievement at a time.
Now if only we knew what was next on the big screen for this certified star.
Until then check out this behind the scenes video from Lupita’s People cover shoot, and be sure to pick up the mag when it hits newsstands this Friday.
Think of it as holiday season for budget conscious fashionistas. There comes a time every year when retailers offer customers the discounts they typically reserve for the friends and families of employees.
It’s always exciting when Shopbop.com holds their annual event, as the e-tailer of celebrity fave brands like Alice + Olivia and Clover Canyon rarely offers discounts of any kind.
