70S

WELCOME TO THE 70S
HALSTON IS BACK
Iconic 70s label Halston has been revived with the help of Harvey Weinstein, Tamara Mellon (of Jimmy Choo) and Rachel Zoe. Roy Halston Frowick "Halston" was the deisigner of the 70s, his dresses were worn at studio 54 by the likes of Bianca Jagger, Lizza Minnelli, Anjelica Houston, Elizabeth taylor, Jackie O as well as many others. In the early 80s he licensed himself to JC Penny, which was not taken to lightly. Back in the 80s making designer clothing the the masses as looked down upon and not appreciated like it is today. Halston got into heavy drug use and in 1984 he was fired from his own company. Unfortunately in 1990 he died from Lung cancer due to complications from AIDS.


TIDBITS

- Amanda's dog on Ugly Betty's name is Halston.

- Halston is the second biggest selling perfume of all time.

- In the Sex and the City episode Politically Erect, when Carrie starts dating politician Bill Kelley, she starts wearing vintage Halston as an homage to Jackie O.

IN KEEPING WITH THE 70S...

THE MOD SQUAD

MICHAEL COLE / CLARENCE WILLIAM III / PEGGY LIPTON


70S POWER COUPLE

QUINCY JONES & PEGGY LIPTON JONES
They married in 1974 and had two children Kidada Jones & Rashida Jones. They divorced amicably in 1990. If you want to read more in 2005 Peggy published her biography called "Breathing Out".

Quincy and his daughters.

Peggy Lipton is 61, almost 62 can't you believe it? I can't believe how amazing she still looks. I see some pictures of her and she honestly looks nearly half her age. The girls have good genes..

KIDADA
JONES AT DISNEY COUTURE

In 2005 Disney hired her to design a line of jewelry, cashmere throws and pillows. The line was inspired by Alice in Wonderland. She's also known for being Tupac's girlfriend at the time of his death.


KIDADA AND RASHIDA JONES


Rashida has been doing quite a bit of acting work see her IMDB here.

CFDA AWARDS

MAGGIE GYLLENHAAL


IN PROENZA SCHOULER RESORT
Wow this is probably the best Maggie has ever looked, I'm quite impressed.


ASHLEY OLSEN IN
CALVIN KLEIN RESORT
How does she manage to always look so polished? I use to love the twins so much on Full House, I would have never dreamed that I'd still be so interested in them now.


EVA LONGORIA PARKER
I've never seen Eva look so saucy. It's bordering trashy, but not quite. Well done.

HILARY DUFF
She's turned into such a glamour puss. Hilary is all grown up that's for sure.

L'IL KIM IN MARC JACOBS
Kimora Lee Simmons is that you? L'il Kim seriously loves Marc, they probably do their makeup together.


EVA MENDEZ
The earrings are putting me off, but the dress has a beautiful simplicity about it.

PDIDDY / DVF
Interesting suit Diddy is wearing! Hehe I said Diddy.


POSH & MARC JACOBS
I don't think Posh and Marc have ever looked so fierce. I love Marc with the extra hair, hot.


CHANEL IMAN / KIM CATTRALL & TOM FORD
Why didn't Kim wear something like this to one of the Sex and The City Premieres?


JOY GRYSON / BETSEY JOHNSON
Joy Gryson, yes the Target Gryson girl. Betsey, well she needs no introduction. Is it me or do her dresses not seem as popular as they use to be?


TORY BURCH / ERIN FETHERSTON
Tory is weairng her own design of course, I'm not sure about Erin, but I think it's safe to assume.


VOGUE'S ANNA WINTOUR
NAOMI CAMBELL AND VOGUE'S LEON TALLY

Is it me or does Leon try harder has the years go on? He's always bordering on ridiculous, but we love him regardless. On another note I can't believe how well Naomi is working those genie pants.

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


GLAMOUR WOMAN
OF THE YEAR AWARDS


LILY ALLEN



What's going on with this girl? Apparently she was falling down drunk all over the place. Lily get it together! Make music! Shop! Do something! Not to mention, this dress is appalling.


ALEXA CHUNG IN LUELLA
This is such a cute little dress, but it's super short. I don't think I'd have the balls to wear it that way, I'd be too scared of exposing myself somehow.


HAYDEN PANETTIERE


ANNIE LENNOX / KIMBO STEWART
Wow I'm pleasantly surprised, Annie is one of my favorites of the night. Didn't Sienna wear something similar by Burberry a couple of years ago? Ew Kimbo, I can't stand to see her cat face. She thinks she's all that, but she's really not. I liked her better when her hair was long, we didn't see her as much.


WTF: JUDE & KIMBO!

Jude has sunk to a new low. Wash your mouth with some Scope and get it together!

EMMA BUNTON

Cute as a button! I actually like her dress it's gorgeous. I would have prefered it if she wore her hair up, though it doesn't look bad this way. I love this dress, this would be one of my top choices if I was going to an event like this.


GERI / MEL B
Geri is a disaster, she normally dresses okay. This is some sort of sheer mermaid costume with a dead rabbit that probably should have been saved for halloween. Mel B on the other hand looks stunning.

KELLY OSBOURNE
Could it be Lily Allen & Kelly Osbourne are trading places? Kelly is becoming all posh why Lily is trashing it up more then ever!



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

STELLA MCCARTNEY
GARDEN PARTY


KATE HUDSON / STELLA

What can I say? They all look good! Wish I was invited, maybe next year when I'm rich beautiful and famous.



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



AN OLSEN IN ELLE



Why does she always have nude lips? Get some pink gloss on this girl! love this cover though, homegirl is fiiierrcee!

MK on whether she is she rich and famous:
“No, But it’s nobody’s business if I am or I’m not. I mean, if you want to have a discussion about fame and what does it really mean to be famous these days, what’s celebrity anymore, what’s media? That’s different.

MK on the controversy surrounding Heath Ledger’s death: “I’m not going to comment on that, I won’t give you a word about that in the nicest way possible. Let’s move on.”

MK on whether she is she rich and famous: “No, But it’s nobody’s business if I am or I’m not. I mean, if you want to have a discussion about fame and what does it really mean to be famous these days, what’s celebrity anymore, what’s media? That’s different.



Hmm... I really need to buy a good blazer.

PLEASE KEEP THE VOMIT IN YOUR MOUTH


SPEIDI 'CANDID' PHOTO OP
How many hats can these people wear? That's not even the half of them, my stomach was starting to gurgle after four pictures. They are shameless! SHAMELESS!


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


CELEB LOOKS

RACHEL BILSON I love loose dresses, I've been into this look for about a year now.


Something about the color combinations I just don't like.


POSH BECKHAM

Posh is seriously on her A game.


HILARY DUFF
She's seriously been rocking some great casual and evening wear lately. Love the cheetah bag, wonder where I could get one?


1/2 OF CHRIHANNA

PENNY CRUZ
I thought she was just hanging out on the beach, but then I saw it was a photoshoot. Love her short shorts and tank, she's certainly got the body for it.


K.K.K SISTERS
I know I've said this before, but I really think Kimi s a good dresser. Their show is stupid, but it's quite entertaining. The tall girl, Khloe, she's got style too, Kourtney though not so much.

LINDSAY LOHAN

Leggings, Leggings Leggings! I can't blame her, they are comfortable. I wear mine often too, I don't think I'll stop anytime soon. I won't wear the short ones though, yuk.


NICOLE RICHIE
Wow Nicole is slowly stepping back into her old style. I don't like the fact that she seems to be getting incredibly skinny again though. I'm surprised she can lift Harlow...


GWYNETH PALTROW
Latex leggings? Work it!

Cute family, but seriously Apple and Moses? Was this Chris' idea?


LAUREN CONRAD
I'm pretty sure that white dress is from her collection. I'm still needing to go to Holt Renfrew to check it out.

alexa chung looks fab, but quite skinny

lara said...

sara said...

I'm excited for Halston to come back, I remember Jennifer Aniston in that dress and she looked amazing.

x sara o

Caitlin said...

oh my i have so much to comment on:

1) not a fan of maggie's outfit: i think it makes her look like a 60-year-old

2) Lily posted an apology about her drunken night on her myspace if you want to check it out. I love the spontaneous pink hair, shes so fun

3) I agree with you about Emma's dress, she looks gorgeous. Same with Posh at CFDA she looks FIERCE

4) are there any more pictures of Kate Hudson from the Stella garden party? she looks gorgeous

5) where is that first pic of the olsen twins from (underneath MK's elle cover)? are there any more pictures from your source?

6) Lindsay needs a makeover intervention.. get rid of that blonde hair !!!

OKAY! i think thats it lol sorry

SKYLA said...

i can't believe you find time for these great posts every day.
it's annoying about the nina ricci/sjp thing, i see her point. i love SJP so much all of a sudden. actually, it can be explained-after watching SATC movie and seeing her on david letterman (via youtube)

carina said...

i love alexa + luella!!

Seraphine said...

I didn't know that about Amanda's dog! Now I can watch Ugly Betty and feel like I know inside information! Hugs.
Lily Allen's hair is awesome. I'm jealous.
Kelly Osbourne has really changed herself. It's fun seeing her mature and become her own style.

I saw the first two Living Lohan episodes. So far, absolutely *nothing* has happened. It's amazing how they can make a show about nothing at all.
(spoiler: it's not another seinfeld).

Secretista said...

Speidi, gross!

Whattt Peggy's how old??! DAMN... WOMAN LOOKS GOOD!!

Hilary and Posh<33

miss vintage love said...

I have to admit, I love Lily Allens pink hair!

Winnie said...

Mk on Elle...fabulous! Rachel Bilson always looks so lovely and Jennifer anniston looks gorgeous in Halston!!

alloftheabove said...

I need Alexa Chungs Luella dress! It's so cute. but yeah i do agree that its way short. She looks great in it though.

said...

Jelenie said...

All I can say is Jude Law is eeeww enough and he had to do that?

Imelda said...

Love the colors of the Halston collection and the dress Jennifer aniston is wearing.
Love how Hillary Duff is looking lately!

Maggie Gyllenhaal looks amazing!

glamour girly said...

I love MK on Elle!

Emma Bunton's dress is my fave!

In Yr Fshn said...

Jen Aniston looked amazing in the Halston. Also, people got on Maggie's case for that outfit, but I thought she looked really lovely. One of the few people who could pull it off.

LML said...

maggie's outfit looks great - i always love her 1920's silouhettes :)

Jennifer Stoddart said...

Love the Halston tribute.
