I already did a celeb style on Diane Kruger a few months back, but she's so stylish and has been talked about so much lately that I felt she need a re-post.

She's probably the most stylish woman to come out of Germany (Sorry Heidi) and I believe she's mainly famous for what she wears and being Joshua Jackson's girlfriend.


Venus Williams was voted one of the 10 best dressed women of the year by Vogue. Who knew she was so stylish and so into fashion? Venus just graduated with an associate’s degree in Fashion Design from The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale and has started her own clothing line Ele Ven by Venus Williams. Venus joins Kate Bosworth, Kathryn Neale, Astrid Munoz, Georgina Chapman, Kelly Wearstler, Amy Greenspoon, Caroline Sieber, Huma Abedin and Agyness Deyn in Vogue this month.



This much anticipated collection that debuted on the spring 2008 Louis Vuitton catwalk. Richard Prince is an American painter born in a US-Panama controlled zone (Now Panama). Trained as a figure painter, Prince began creating collages containing photographs in 1975. At first I wasn't sure what to think of the Louis Vuitton bags, I thought they looked a little obnoxious and I much preferred the older ones, but now it's really grown on me. Though they are not all my cup of tea some of the vibrant colored monogram ones I really like. What do you think?


I was given this Think blogger award by Jayne of Plain Jayne which made me smile after a pretty tiring start to the day.

Like Jayne I'm not exactly sure of it's significance but I will try to pass it along the best I can.


If you get tagged you have to write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think and then you have to put a link to THIS post so people can find out where it all started. Finally, just in case you want (optional), you can display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote in one of your sidebars.

I'm suppose to pass this on to 5 blogs that make me think, it's really hard to pick because I think all the blogs out there bring a unique and special point of view and I enjoy them all in different ways.

As I have to choose I'll pass this Award onto The Clothes horse, it's sad that I don't know her name even though I visit her blog quite often, she takes the most wonderful and creative pictures as well as wonderful wardrobe ideas.

Coco from Coco's Tea Party because her posts always make me laugh and she always brings a new and fresh perspective on celebrity style.

Mer from El fashionista, I can't read her blog because it's in another language, but I always enjoy her pictures and can understand what she's writing about so that says a lot.

I also give this award to Jay from Jay Cam, he has a humour blog, but he always manages to make me laugh so much and he seems like a good natured person.

And finally Stevie from Discotheque Confusion because, like her counterpart Coco, I really love her take on fashion, she makes it fun to sit back and enjoy her blog.

The Second Half

What's the story behind the name of your blog and your nickname? I've always been Obsessed with exotic places, mainly islands and beaches so I decided to use a Hawaiian word for my blog because they look and sound cool. Mahalo means thank you, therefore "Thank you fashion", which I think is pretty self explanatory.

Why did you started blogging in the first place? I found a love for blogging after I discovered Suzanne from Style Bubble through MSD and Agathe from Style bytes. Looking at their blogs made me really want to start mine, especially after I saw how successful they had both become.

What has been your best blogging experience? What about the worst? Getting to know all these wonderful fashion bloggers online and making new connections is definitely the best part. Oh and the free Lipsticks I got mailed to me from Lipstick Queen (Poppy) not to mention discounts from time to time. The worst is getting hateful or angry feedback or comments, but that doesn't happen often.

What do you think will happen to your blog in 2008? I'm hoping to start posting more about my personal style and my creative ideas. Hopefully Mahalo Fashion continues to gain momentum and I'm able to continue posting.

Mahalo fashion,

WendyB said...

I agree that Diane Kruger is very stylish. And she mixes up her looks too. It's not too much of the same thing all the time.

Wendy said...

Beautiful woman, amazing wardrobe! I must stalk her style starting right about nice. Great post!

Heather said...

Diane Kruger is so gorgeous!

Anonymous said...

Great post! In your last post I love the last two outfits though! Paris looks skanky but still chic and I guess I was the only one who thought J Hudson's jacket was hot - and I don't even like her!

As for this post, I LOVE those LV bags... the best I have ever seen.

I think Diane looks like a ho in that pic with Joshua. Too much exposure, especially when he is so covered up.

Anonymous said...

I can´t decide which outfit like me more... the girl rules!!! she has an amazing style! and i didnñt knew that she was Joshua Jackson´s girlfriend!
they look so cute together!

i really like this post! she´s so stylish!

ashley said...

Eli said...

I dont know, but those Louis Vuitton totes look like an idea you can make yourself with some fake Louis and spray paint!

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

^ some of them are cute but others not so hot it's 50/50 with me.

ashley - She really does!

Key - they've been together for a while I think, really cute couple.

Héloïse J. said...

luved diane in this yellow dress and studded shoes!

Cool Urbanite. said...

Now that I know your blogname means Thank You Fashion I'm coming more!! :P Haha just kidding, but really nice name in honour of fashion :D.

I like Krugers outfit where she wears the scarf. So unclassy, but she makes it classy. And I def see a signature style. Very good Diane!

And Venus best dressed women? I always found her and her sisters it bit manly. Because of their mascules. But in that photo on the right she actually looks like a model! And graduated from a Fashion school, way to go!

Mash said...

diana is gorgeous as usual :) and i dont know what to think about the LV bags because when i see them i think about Juicy couture a little (because of the colors)....
congrats for your award :)

Daphné said...

I love Diane Kruger,she has such a great personal style,she is not afraid to wear bright colors(which suit her really well).That Chanel dress she wore for the Festival de Cannes was the most beautiful dress ever.

Miss Woo said...

Diane Kruger has such a beautiful face, she looks so classic. Plus she wears a lots of scarves, which is always a good thing in my book, haha.

Yolande Sourcils said...

Diane Kruger, so gorgeous, I love her style !
Happy new year !!! xoxo

PrincessPolly said...

diane kruger is absolutely stunning isnt she? her clothes are great, but then I suppose she probably gets all the best designers wanting to give her clothes all the time! as for the louis vuitton stuff, i actually hate the original designs so these new designs look much funkier! P x

fashionconfession said...

i like diane, her style is amazing
have a great new year
x Carina

Mer said...

Ohhh Jen!!! Thank you so much!!! I´m graphic designer, so what you said, well is pretty exciting! Even I write in spanish (with "my style" I do also in english)is more like a visual blog, so I´m glad that you apreciate it!

Kira Fashion said...

Patent Shoes && Rants said...

She is stylish! I may have to list her as one of my new favorite style icons <3


The Seeker said...

T think this post is very well donne, diane kruger is stylish, and for the LV bags I like them, different from the older ones.
congrats for your award :)
Happy New Year!!!!!!!!

Jackie said...

Good job! I congratulate you =]

I do have one question however, your celebrity photos, are you just REALLY tuned in to all these events and go on a bunch of sites to find the pics and stuff?

How do you find the pictures etc etc?

Jill said...

I'm not a huge fan of the LV bags, but I agree that Diane Kruger makes some amazing outfit choices.

hannah said...

oh! i simply adore diane! she is the epitome of the chic french woman.

Jackie said...

Aha, thanks. I was wondering for a long time, because well, I don't think I'd want to spend a bajillion hours each day searching photo after photo of celebrities =]

Natalie said...

I love that first Louis Vuitton picture!

Happy new year! :)

vonnie said...

sara said...

Yes, and so happy to be back. Diane has a wonderful taste in style. The Louis Vuitton bags - I like the bery bright pink one, but the rest I'm not really into. And congrats on the award!
