GROCERY STORES & RETAIL

JOE FRESH

I never thought I'd be talking about Loblaws grocery store
on my blog. You may wonder how this is all related. Well let me explain. The founder of Club Monaco is a man called Joseph Mimran, he started the company in Toronto, Canada in 1985. He resigned as chairman and CEO in 1999 and sold the company to Polo Ralph Lauren. Now Joe is back, he was asked by Loblaws grocery store to design a low price line. That's just so Loblaws they are trying to dip their finger in all the markets, they think they are the next Costco here in Canada.

Prices range from 10$ to 50$CAD

CELEBS IN MAGAZINES

BEYONCE


I hope she really is going to marry Jay-Z finally. Knowing Beyonce she'll be wearing a fishtail wedding dress, strapless and heavily beaded.

MADONNA VANITY FAIR


MADONNA: ELLE MAGAZINE

THE REALITY Uh huh.


SOPHIE MONK:
MEN'S STYLE AUSTRALIA

She's showing Benji what's what. How could he have ever let go of that hotness for Paris? Shame.

Sophie and Kristen Cavillari? Odd.
,


GEORGE CLOONEY AND
RENNE ZELLWEGER DO MARIE CLAIR


I think these two belong together, I never realized until now what a cute couple they would make! George is so hot for his age, even I would jump his bones.

I don't know what he's doing with that Sarah Larson girl, especially when he belongs with Renee! *laughs* at that picture of them on the left.

AMERICA'S NEXT TOP NON-MODEL

Is it me or does Tyra get crazier as the season goes on? I liked her better when she was a model and kept her mouth shut. Anyway here are my two favorite pictures from last night, Whitney and Anya. Whitney looks like a fetus here, I think she's make an amazing plus size model. I didn't understand this photoshoot too much, the pictures just didn't seem to come out all that clear to me. I'm not sure if that was the intention? Anyway how crazy was Claire for jumping on that thing after they told her not to do it? I use to like her in the beginning, but I'm glad she's gone more room for Dominique to create more drama!

MAGAZINES DO LIE


I saw this on here and I just had to post about it. Thoughts?

CELEB LOOKS

JENNA JAMESON& AUDREY O'DAY
Our favorite ex porn star is out and about. I like her dress here, as for Audrey I can't stand her, she needs to scrub the orange off of her body and take Jenna with her.

WOULD BECKY APPROVE OF THIS?
CONFESSIONS OF A SHOP-A-HOLIC
ISLA FISHER
Ugh I hate to say this but I'm worried they might ruin one of my favorite books. I thought this was going to come out looking a little bit more like Sex And The City and less like a prostitute dressed up as a clown. I don't remember her character being that outlandish in the book except when she was having one of her moments but so far all I've seen is one style disaster after the other. Maybe they are changing her character a bit from the book?


TOCCARA JONES
AND HER TWO FAVORITE LADIES


Toccara is one of the girls who is still managing to do well after ANTM even thought she got eliminated pretty early on. She's lost heaps of weight, I think it's great she was able to find a swim suit to keep those puppies up cause lord knows I have a hard time and mine are not even nearly as big as hers!

SOON WE WILL BE CARRIED AWAY
SJP STYLE

GISELE BUNDCHEN
Oh God what is the concept of this photoshoot? :/

ELISE NEIL
I don't know much about this girl besides the fact that she's wearing a great dress and that she seems to be dating Rick Fox who is my lovely Vanessa Williams' ex husband.

KATE BOSWORTH

TRACEY EDMONDS
From Babyface, to Eddie and now Rocco Dispirito? She sure moves on quick. I use to love Rocco when he had his Kitchen show, he was always so stressed out and talking about his mama's meatballs. Anyway, Tracey is so hot for her age.


NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK ARE
COMING BACK

Interesting.

I wanted to find out about the Joe Fresh line. There is so much hype around it after all, with Coco. I want to see what the quality is like, though I'm not sure how much I will love shopping in Loblaws superstore's for clothes.

Belle said...

what the hell at gisele's photoshoot. eugh it's like a bad april fools joke. =/

jenna looks hot, i wouldn't have recognized her if she wasn't glowing orange!

also, NKOTB should be renamed to middle aged men on wall street. just sayin'.

Kaye said...

Oh. My. God. The Fendi ads are going to be sizzling hot! That last one right there with the double Fs!! I have a grin exactly like Karl's on my face right now- I LOVE it!

PS Don't you think the lighting for that ANTM photoshoot is just plain strange? I feel like they're trying for that artsy mysterious feel but (to quote Tyra) "not committing 100%"!

enc said...

I've never seen Karl look like that before. Giselle's photo shoot is the nadir of her career, I'd venture. Madonna's got some big-time delts in those photos.

Secret Agent said...

Hahaha...the Joe Fresh clothes look kinda tacky =P
Madonna's arms are too crazy. They're more toned than mine--and I hit the gym (sometimes...alright, fine, maybe not as much as I would like to).
Who is Sophie Monk? She's hot...and so is Gisele's ass. No ass is more perfect than Gisele's.

Imelda Matt said...

jeeeen, you're not have a crack at the madge are you? Has Karl just crept from the crypt?

good blog

LBIC said...

I didn't really like this week's episode, but I'm kind of glad Claire's gone as well. I feel the same way about her.

As for Isla Fisher, they're completely changing the character around, which sucks. First, she's not british. I think they're making her from connecticut and then moving to NYC or something. And Becky had amazing fashion sense in the book, whereas Isla's character, not so much.

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

^ it almost makes me want to cry because i fell so in love with this book they taking alway all the good things about becky!!! :P

anna. said...

i only like Lauren when she photographs, i think she has a lot of potential, but a LONG way to go.

I hate how magazines glamorize celebrites, that actually have no idea what looks good. And then, the ones in the "best dressed" sections, always have stylists. Its barely ever the ones with natural style! [like nicole, or rachel bilson]

And thanks for that thing about "Joe Fresh"
I MUST check that out.

p.s love the blog.

Fashion Tidbits said...

i am thinking the same thing about that shoot with gisele.....hmmm

Secretista said...

The outfit on confessions of a shopaholic is rather interesting...

Secretista said...

That shot of britney reiterated the fact that gossip magazines cannot be trusted!

Seraphine said...

I couldn't believe Claire fell like a mummy on the plexiglass like that. It *looked* painful. I liked the idea of the plexiglass and shooting from below, but I thought the photographer blew it by not backlighting from below. I think they were trying to photograph the form, and missed the incredible face shots that presented from the shoot.
How about Holly winning Make Me a Supermodel? I picked Ronnie. Perry was favorite almost until the end.

Rollergirl said...

Poor Naomi...or poor British Airways? God with all that brouhaha at Terminal 5 I bet the last person they needed was bloody Naomi Campbell turning up. Get a grip girl!

The Seeker said...

Well, looks like Karl is really enjoying...
George Clooney and Renne Zellweger look great together!


Thank you dear for your support on my blog.

xoxo

jayne said...

i'm getting sick of seeing madonna everything, actually i never wanted to see her anywhere in the firt place haha

oo renne & george would make a cute couple! they're nice contrasting personalities

the only moment becky bloomwood is supposed to be a fashion victim is when she maxes out her credit card, not this hurricaine of tackiness isla is sporting, yuck

The Vancouverista said...

LOL at the predictability of Naomi. Doesn't she know it's not the '80s anymore? You can't fuck with cops in 2008.

copperoranges said...

kristin cav looks really cute in those pictures. paris is definitely a downgrade from sophie monk!

i think i have a small crush on r. zimmerman.

discothequechic said...

Ha!
Naomii!
What a surprise..

jellofer said...

I like the Joe Fresh stuff from the Loblaws Superstore, I was actually at one last weekend! The only problem is that the website changes very slowly so often times you can't find stuff that's on the site in store and vice versa. Overall, the price is cheap and the quality is pretty good considering the price.

Kira Fashion said...

hello Jen!!!

i really love that madonna´s pics after the gym!
i am a gym addicted and she is really an inspiration for me, in fact, the she is my main inspiration...what a body! it´s no easy to get so great muscles!
but today i am a little bit sad, i can´t go to my gym today...

a kiss and a hug,
Kira

Fabi said...

hahahahah
you're so right about what beyonce would wear to her wedding!!

a side order of style said...

I do like the joe fresh line, but i'm a bit of a cheapo and think some of their items are not worth what they are priced at. but then again i think that just because its sold at lablaws. Oh man your post is chalk full of subjects i'd love to comment on but i can be here forever. Great stuff =)

The Clothes Horse said...

Ugh! Magazines are such liars. I would jump George too. And I don't think I've ever seen Karl so excited before!

Romany said...

xx

PS. Gotta love Giselle's derrière! :P

Make Do & Mend said...

Ok I like the look fo the two Joe Fresh dresses! Are they cheapie tho in flesh?
You are so right about George and Renee - lose the waitress get the kooky gal! And don't get me started on gossip girls - I loved the books and the script translation is not the fineness that the books were!
