JOVOVICH HAWK / LA FASHION WEEK

Photobucket

JOVOVICH-
HAWK FALL 2008




They've stepped a bit away from the boho chic clothes that made them famous, but yet have still managed to retain the essence of Jovovich-Hawk. I absolutely adore this collection there isn't a single piece I would not wear. I like that the clothes are flattering for many body types. What I also like is that their collection isn't ridiculously expensive, but yes you certainly have to save. I could not believe when I heard that they were coming out with a collection for Tarrrgeet Boutique. We don't have Target here in Canada which is unfortunate. I heard they tried to buy out Zellers, I'm glad they didn't, because it's one of the few truly Canadian companies left. I made myself better, buy scoring a dress on eBay. (pictured below)

I don't think all the pieces worked, they probably should have left the t-shirts out I didn't find them all that cute. To each their own...



I'm wanting to score that last dress on eBay too.


The dress I bought ^ it still hasn't arrived yet.

MERCEDES BENZ FASHION WEEK
THE LA EDITION

AS HEIDI WOULD SAY:
LET'S START THE SHOW

LAUREN CONRAD
I'm really happy for this girl. I know a lot of people dog her, but I believe she really loves fashion. her style maybe on the safe side, but maybe she just likes being classic. I'm glad wide leg jeans are back, Lauren is totally working it.


10 STEPS TO A FASHION SHOW


STEP 1: GETTING READY

Whitney: Lauren are you ready for this?


Lauren: No Whitney, I'm going to barf


Whitney: Just don't do it on your new dress, Lisa love's got spies everywhere.


Lauren: I know right? She still won't let go that I turned down Paris! And now look, Jason is engaged to that Kashu tennis chick.


Whitney: It's Kaaasiiaaa


STEP 2: SELF PRAISE


STEP 3: PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!


STEP 3: WORK THE CAMERA

STEP 4: MAKE NICE WITH YOUR ENEMIEPhotobucket

STEP 5: HAVE MY FRIENDS SIT IN THE FRONT ROW

SMILE / POSELo: Do you think this is going to be any good?


Audrina: Errr I'm not sure.

STEP 6: LOOK BLOWN AWAY


STEP 7: PRESENT

STEP 8: TEARS OF JOY Lauren: I can't believe these suckers let me do this!

STEP 9: PARTAYYY

Lauren's collection was of no surprise to me since I saw it online ages ago, but I think the runway looks were well put together. In comparison to the other collections I saw at LA fashion week, Lauren's was one of the better ones. You can't deny that her clothes are wearable.

STEP 10: INVITE YOUR EX WHO DOESN'T LOOK SO HOT ANYMORE.

What happened to Stephen? Didn't he use to be good looking? These cropped pictures don't do the fugness justice. He's one of those people that looks okay for from far or on tv, but up close it could use some work. Maybe Hayden sucked the hot right out of him.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MERCEDES BENZ FASHION WEEK :

NICHOLAI

BEFORE I GET INTO HER COLLECTION I'D LIKE TO PRESENT:The amazing shrinking Nicky Hilton. Maybe it's just me, but she looks like she could use a few burgers.

ALWAYS A HOT MESS
I thought Paris was getting better for a while...


ONE IS 'CLASSY' THE OTHER IS TRASHY

WORKING THE FRONT ROW
Paris: Are the camera's on me?


RICK AND KATHY HILTON

I'm not sure if Kathy Hilton has had anything done, cause girl is looking good.
Whomever her doctor is he or she is doing a good job, her face looks natural to me. Maybe it's just the picture...

PRESENT: NICHOLAI
This is almost worse then the Chick by Nicky Hilton collection. The clothes look soooo cheap and poorly fabricated. I would not even attach my name to this...is she blind? Has she been to a Paris, London or Milan fashion show?

The pants in the first picture look really poorly constructed and the red top looks like something you could get at Wal-Mart, not even Target is worthy of this. The only item I liked when looking at the whole collection is this black and white dress in the last picture. I also have to say, a few of the models look beat.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


SOME OF THE OTHER DESIGNERS

IMASU BY KELLY NISHIMOTO
This look using velvet reminds me of something Christopher Kane would do. I thought all the collections were pretty average, but that's usually the way with MB fashion week.

FALGUNI & SHANE PEACOCK

I thought this was one of the better executed collections, they actually put work into it. It's refreshing considering a lot of the collections at MB fashion week look so thrown together.

JULIA CLANCEY

The presentation is very very weak.

WHITLEY KROS
The over all look was well put together, and some of their clothes I would wear. The entire collection wasn't good though, there were some pieces that definitely had to go.

ALEXIS LAMONTAGNA

I like the structure of the clothes, she's on the right path.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

RANDOM CELEBRITIES

CINDY CRAWFORD: LOOK AT MY HOT FAMILY
This kid is going to give the Sweedish guy a run for his money in a few years.

MILEY CYRUS
Is it halloween? I'm not sure if that jumper is orange or red, but it looks orange so I'll go with the latter. I hate orange and black together, reminds me too much of that time of the year. Ps. Somebody needs to tell Miley that Lalala Lohan did the peace sign already.


SAMANTHA MUMBA IS THAT YOU?
Where has my little Irish beauty been all this time? I still love that "Baby come on over tonight" song! Anyway since this is about fashion I have to say, I don't mind the cheetah print top, but the jeans and shoes have got to go! Maybe she can exchange them with Britney for a cheeto.

CHARLIZE THERON IS NOW AMERICAN

She got her American citizenship a few days ago. I think it's kinda sad that in America you can't have duel citizenship and you have to 'renounce' your old one. So not hot. First Mischa now her? What's wrong with your homelands? Yeah I get a little fired up about these subjects.

ANNE HATHAWAY
Whomever her stylist is, her or she is doing a great job. What a transformation!

GISELE AND TOM BRADY LOOK ALIKE
Don't these two look like they could be brother and sister? I don't get it. It reminds me of that German couple who are brother and sister that had 4 kids together and two of them are now handicapped. So wrong. Read here.

KATE BOSWORTH TRIES TOO HARD


Lose the gloves and get a job. x

Nicky Hilton...All I have to say is "oh dear"

I love the FALGUNI & SHANE PEACOCK collection. It stands out, looks flattering, and has really cool shapes/draping/fabric.

by the way, we're updating our link lists (hopefully up by tonight) and you're on it! I love your blog

Jelenie said...

The LC collection boring with a capital BBB. And I wish Target Aus had the Jovovich-Hawk account instead of the Zac Posen one. I love the quirky designs of their clothes.

The Clothes Horse said...

I am super psyched about the new season of the Hills (its my guilty pleasure television), but I don't like LC or think she deserves a collection! Then again, maybe I'm just jealous...

Wendy said...

Lauren's collection wasn't bad at all, not really interesting though. But compared to Nikki Hilton's, it was amazing!

Aisha said...

I love LC too! and you're so right, Stephen colletti used to be soo cute and now he doesn't look very pretty at all. Kristin Cavallari is so trashy, errrrr, anyway, i always liked LC better :)

Imelda Matt said...

What's the GO with those Balenciaga-esque riding hats in the Nikki Hilton show?!?!?!?! Am I right in recalling she was on PR S1 and claimed one of the designers had made a dress that was similar to a Chloe dress she'd already worn?. WTF. kettle-black!

Jill said...

Nicky Hilton looks fairly scary in some of the pictures, she's dressing pretty well but health and body wise it's creepy.

Secret Agent said...

Kristin wore that to a fashion show? What the hell. There was more drama about "Kristin and Lauren getting back together" than LC's line itself.
Nicky Hilton...has she not learned? I have no words to describe how she looks right now. Stick thin--come on, that's so 3 years ago.
Cindy Crawford's...son looks like a daughter.
Samantha Mumba's still looking hot. Damn, I can't believe I used to watch her music videos. Did you ever watch Hit List? It was on YTV...ridiculous.

Kool Thing said...

The Lauren Conrad collection was not a collection! There was no concept behind it; it was bland and uninspired! And I doubt she was responsible for any of it! You're blog is a good one. I like.

Emma said...

great post luved the hole laren skit

the_kitten said...

Ooh, I wish Jovovich-Hawk had incorporated several of their newer looks into the Target collection. Namely the blue striped dress. I def would have bought it! I did buy several items, nonetheless, though. Also a T-shirt. I think it's cute!

Lauren Conrad has not really style, all she can do is throw over a "cute" dress and match her shoes with it. That's not much of any achievement. So looks her "collection".

OMG, Cindy Crawford's little boy has inherited all of his mother's incredible gorgeous attributes. He looks like a mini-adonis. And his hair!!!

penelope said...

LOVE JOVOVICH HAWK TO BITS!!!!
it's so whimsical!! i love his stuff!

and LC!!! i cant look at her! cos she just stirs up my lust for a 2.55 of my own. haha

her collection is wearable but just not fashion week worthy enough. but she's got guts(((:

Ediot said...

well- i love the jov0vich hawk. really nice clothes. and i like the rest of the post. -paris.

Curiosity Killer said...

I was most entertained by your commentary. You're hilarious!

punky said...

eww..Kristen cant dress!

Neekoh said...

Jovivich-Hawk: very ok, in my opinion. Nothing really struck me as a must-have. And those models look sickly. I don't say that often, but these pictures did it to me :/
Lauren Conrad: Love her! There's something about her, I can't quite pinpoint it, but she's just so real. And humble.
Citizenship: I have two citizenships. Yeah, you "renounce" your old country, but that doesn't mean they take away your passport or anything. You just pledge allegiance to the US, wave your little cheap American flag around and call it a day. I don't think you can have 3 though.

Anyway, I love your all-inclusive posts! I just have a hard time commenting because by the time I'm done reading, I forget half the things I wanted to say :)

enc said...

I could comment all day on this one. First, the Jovovich-Hawk pieces are finally getting to a place where I could maybe wear them. They were too boho (may I use your word?) for me before. Cindy Crawford's family are staggeringly beautiful, and that blond boy is surreally gorgeous. I'm wondering why Anne Hathaway has developed this stork/flamingo stance with her leg, but I love her anyway. Kate Bosworth seems to be making an attempt to become a "style arbiter." I wonder if she has a stylist, or if she's making all her clothing choices on her own.

The Divinitus said...

nay, you can have duel, in most cases renounce in US wont change anything for another country, so you still keep your 'old' identity.

aizat.cinta.goddess said...

i love NICHOLAI..it is very me..

saray said...

i have to admit Lauren's collection was nice..
too safe, but nice... i don't mine owning some of her clothes.

loved NICHOLAI.love nicky.
but paris is super trashy!!

Kira Fashion said...

hello dear,

you are so right, Paris style is even worse lately...

i hate to see her clothes!

hehehe


a kiss and hug,

Kira

jayne said...

i actually wasn't a big fan of jovitch hawk for target, but w/e- to each her own :)

love what you wrote about kate bosworth "lose the gloves & get a job" haha!

bronwyn said...

That is one beautiful child, he even has his mother's famous beauty spot. He is going to be beating back the girls with a stick!

Miss Woo said...

Love the new Jovovich-Hawk collection, so mod!

Make Do & Mend said...

I was so shocked by Nicky hilton's legs that the collection almost looked normal - not! Gawd awful tat - why? Jovovich Hawk is a revelation and a great step away from thier past collections.
Loved the Gisele comment!
But.. I have to be a complete mom and say that BOY the young Crawford is blessed with the most outstanding genes!

Tala said...

omg is k cav always obligated to wear bongo jeans because she does their ads...? hahahahahaha suckerrrrrrrrrrrrrr :)

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

^ haha, bongo is terrible their clothes are so cheap!!

jadorevogue said...

ugh I thought Lauren Conrad's collection was just plain bad. I just didn't find anything stylish about it. Too much jersey and I just hate the leggings. I would definitely not buy a single piece from the collection, especially for that much money.

Key said...

hi!!
i love the jovovich-hawk collection! it�s so simple but so chic.
about paris... poor girl! She looks horrible with anything she wear! She just don�t get "it".
Why nobody ever tell her!??
She has a lot of money but no style at all...

Fashion's Darling said...

I'm so shocked at Nicky Hilton. Her collection last season was amazing. This looked...bad

U said...

OMG, Cindy's son is so pretty... and looks exactly like his mom! :O

Anne yay for Anne H... she's doing so great fashion-wise these days! Love her. <3

Seraphine said...

Umm... Stephen looks hot to me. He was hotter before?
I loved the Jovovich-Hawk sets, except for the pink (personal preference). Love the black tights too.
Loved the 10 steps of a fashion show. You nailed it. The tension and energy is amazing, and the concentration needed. Sometimes after, I'm too tired to party.
Anne Hathaway is gonzo pretty.
Kate Bosworth should share a burger with Nicky. Vegetarian of course, with lots of cheese.

Romeika said...

Oh, I have missed a lot on your blog, and there are always things I see here first, like Cindy and her family, her son looks so cute, jeez, imagine when he grows up..modeling? Wow, he got the mother's expressive eyes and the little brown spot, cute!!!

Gisele and her b/f look indeed siblings, so weird!

Fashion Tidbits said...

the H&M collection looks rather pucci-ish, nice.

atelier said...

I love stripes in Jovovich-Hawk collection, they are so cool! Nicky Hilton is so thin... I think she must be ill or something because she was better before. Paris... no comment, she would never change, I guess.

alis said...

if I were 8 i would totally have the hots for cindy crawford's kid.

jen, are you sure about having to give up your original citizenship in order to become american? because i know ppl with double passports, but it may just be because they were born in america to non-american(imigrant) parents.
