JEWELRY

BIRDS AND FEATHERS






My latest obsession, birds! I know this is kind of an old trend, but I still think they look sweet. I'm even thinking of getting a swallow tattooed on my shoulder blade, but I haven't decided for sure yet. I still don't have a feather necklace, I'm browsing on eBay for one right now.

MIXING PRINTS & TEXTURES

I'm particularly fond of the Sonia Rykiel skirt, nautical never goes out of style!

FIT FOR A WEDDING
This isn't the best picture, I'm not sure what's going on with my camera :/ I have a couple of weddings to attend soon so I bought this Chloe dress. Yes I'm not responsible, look how wrinkled it is already. I'm still debating in the shoe department, at first I thought black, then I was suggested red, now I'm leaning towards silver.

MONUMENTAL!

ITALIAN VOGUE JULY 2008

THE ALL BLACK MODELS ISSUE



As you may have heard it was announced late last week, that this issue will be hitting news stands shortly. Rumor is British model Jourdan Dunn will be the cover girl (She was the first Black model to walk for Prada since '97) and other sources say it's Liya Kedebe. I hope it's Liya, she has such a grace and elegance about her.
I applaud Italian Vogue for taking this big step, I will definitely be picking it up because who knows when this will happen again. At lot of people are surprised that the Italians did it before America, but I'm not. Viva Italia!

"
Cathy Horyn spoke to Italian Vogue editor Franca Sozzani and photographer Steven Meisel about the project; Sozzani was inspired by Barack Obama's campaign and the lack of diversity on the runways, while Meisel has been frustrated by the industry's rejection of black models for quite some time"

Some of the featured models will be:
Jourdan Dunn, Liya kedebe, Naomi Cambell, Tyra Banks, Sessilee Lopez, Veronica Webb and Toccara Jones.

DAVID BECKHAM IS

ON A BILLBOARD


As hot has his body is, the way his hair is cropped is really putting me off. Congrats to Victoria though for getting to sag this hot piece of meat.


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


DOLCE AND GABBANA FALL ADS

FEATURING: CAROLINE TRENTINI, LILY DONALDSON AND JESSICA STAM





Their ads have definitely improved in the last year, it's not as trashy instead they are strong and bold. Way to go.



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


VOGUE PARTY

MONICA CRUZ

Why does Monica always wear this nude shade of lipstick? It makes her look old, actually she looks older then Penelope.


CLAUDIA SCHIFFER

She is everywhere lately.


PAULINA RUBIO
Yellow is so in for this summer. Paulina is wack though, I've seen her interviews a few times on TV and she's always so hyper, she doesn't even let the interviewer get a word in.


LOUIS VUITTON PARTY


JOLEY RICHARDSON
In Louis Vuitton. She's definitely had some work done, what is going on with her face? It looks kinda crooked and frozen at the same time.


CLAUDIA SCHIFFER


LILY DONALDSON

ugh, the whole shoes and socks have got to go, she's not a porcelain doll.


TRINNY WOODALL

ELTON JOHN'S
10TH ANNUAL BLACK TIE PARTY


ELIZABETH HURLEY
What's with the tiara? is it prom? She looks so good though for her age.


MISCHA BARTON / THE SMITHS
Mischa is looking great, is she losing the weight? I liked her curvier!! As for Jada, I don't like her dress, shiny black dresses always remid me of garbage bags.


NELSON MANDELA'S
90TH BIRTHDAY


THE SMITHS / NICOLE SHERZIGNER
This dress is much better on Jada! And Nicole, her belly is covered!


CLASSY VS TRASHY
NAOMI CAMPBELL / LEONA LEWIS

Wow I can't believe Naomi wore that, kinda skimpy for an older persons party isn't it?


OPRAH / UMA THURMAN
Ugh Oprah can do much better then that, this outfit is terrible. White belle sleeves? This isn't the early 90s and the peasant skirt is so two years ago! Fire the stylist!


KIM CATTRALL
Perfect.


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


STYLE EXAMINATION:
DELTA GOODREM

This Aussie beauty is one of my favorite signers, she doesn't annoy me like most people do and that's rare. She does have an erratic sense of style, but I can appreciate that she's comfortable enough to wear what she wants.


Oh honey...


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


THIS MAKES SENSE....

AUDRINA PARTRIGE AND MARIO LOPEZ
They may all have hot bodies, but their brains must be on starvation mode! These three idiots belong together.
Famewhore. I liked you once. Shame.


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

CELEB LOOKS

NICOLE RICHIE

I can't get enough of them, they are the cutest family.




Oh I love these printed light tops, I must find one somewhere!


CAMERON DIAZ

Another beautiful printed top.


MARY-KATE OLSEN
How many Kimono dresses can one person own?

OMG I haven't gone this gaga over a dress in maybe a week? I love it to pieces!! the color, the print, it's wonderful. It makes me wat to go vintage shopping.


MANDY MOORE
I love Mandy's voice, it's too bad she keeps putting out crappy albums. I admire her for trying to do it her way, but maybe she needs to go back to the people that gave her hits? I'm only thinking of her career!!


THE WENTZS

Something about those shoes I just don't like. I don't mind the nude color though.

CHRIS BROWN
I've seen this look on Rhianna's face many times, she's not happy. I guess Chris want's her to 'Get off his dick"


JESSICA ALBA IS OUT

I still don't like her one bit.



CAMILLA BELLE
Her style reminds me of Diane Kruger, they always get it right.


BEYONCE
That Chanel bag is something else.


KATE MOSS
I love this look so much, it's fierce all over, but I think she needs some nipple stickers. Don't they sell those?


CHRISTEL KHALIL
At the Emmys. I'm a big fan of her character on Y & R, she always has good story lines.


HEIDI KLUM
That yellow is sensational, it's truly the color of the summer. Heidi is the hottest mom around, no matter what anybody says!


PAULA PATTON
She's married to one of the smoothest singers around, Robin Thick. I didn't know she also had cute style!

alis said...

I didn't stop by your blog for 2 days and now I've been reading for an hour! You are truly the fashionblog master!!

-I LOVE your mixing prints collage!
-I think silver or black would be better with the pretty Chloe dress, with red it could look too costume-y.
-I never understood Beckham's appeal..now I do!! Abs yum.
-GJ D&G, great ads!
-What have all those ppl got to do with Nelson Mandela??
-Stupid Heidi is making that "AAHH I didn't know you'd be here" surprised horse-face smile again.
-Is Cam wearing vintage? Love her outfit.
-I thought I was the only person who thought J. Alba is annoying.
-Kate Moss' outfit is amazinnggg the boots are to die for.

Great post as always!

cotton candy said...

my gosh, havent been to your blog for ages. i just love reading your comments on the people and the fashion. it's hilarious and makes me laugh. and i can't wait to get my hands on italian vogue too!!!

Make Do & Mend said...

Love your dress for wedding - I'd go silver or even grey or a light sky blue - the dress needs shoes of a muted colour tone.
I'm hearting the birds too although no to a swallow tatoo but I'm a complete no tatoo person.
Yes I might personally deliver KM some nipple petals! Also stomach slightly distended - is that malnutrition, drugs (aka Amy Winehouse) or baby on way?? Take a peek again at your pics!

Rebel Chic said...

this post is awesome!! and btw, i think black shoes look amazing under that Chloe dress. Maybe some black patent heels...or something like this:

2. the dolce and gabanna ads are getting better, you are right!
3. hahaa nicee. comparing jada pinkett smith's dress to a garbage bag! madeeee my day.

Lust for Fashion said...

I'm planning on getting a tattoo of a silhouette of a bird :D
Thanks for comforting me!! I really appreciate it. I actually got back from my college orientation and I just went to a BBQ. Some freedom, yay!!!

Nay'Chelle said...

I used to like Audrina too....

Seraphine said...

I saw Mary-Kate on a talk show the other day, and decided she's definitely strange.

Ediot said...

hey! i love them birdies. especially swallowbirds, thanks for your lovely blogcomments. ive missed you. take care

Cate said...

JEN!
i like tattoos, even though i wouldn't like to have it forever. have you heard about the so-called "biological" tattoos? they are pretty expensive, but the tattoo only stays four or five years, wouldn't that be just perfect for you? then you wouldn't have the tattoo still when you're 70 ^^
-i really like the matthew williamson shirt!
-your chloe dress is really gorgeous, perfect for weddings! i wouldn't wear black shoes, that is a bit too "sad" for a wedding. red would be a great choice, silver isn't bad either but i would choose a COLOUR, like red!
-wow, i have to get that issue of italian vogue! an all black models issue sounds great and i will even understand the text because i'm half italian!
-hm, i love billboards - with ANYTHING on them ^^
-i always love dolce&gabbana ads, though i don't want to think about fall and winter right now ^^ i loved their ads for spring/summer.
-ISN'T monica older than penélope? oh. i agree, she should try another shade of lipstick. red looks great on penélope, so it will look great on her.
-haha i'd love to see an interview with paulina, must be fun ^^
-you know, lately i have the feeling that lily cole IS a porcelain doll.
-yeah, delta goodrem is one of my favourite singers too!
-i. love. nicole. richie's. style.
-that print dress of mary-kate's is wonderful too!!!
-i think the thing about ashlee's shoes is that the plateau heel has a weird shape ^^
-kate's look is COOOOOOOLLLL!!!! i love the ankle boots!
xxxxxxxxxxxxx

coco said...

I love Sonia Rykiel too. The collections are always great!
I know what you mean about Jessica Alba, there is something not so likable about her but I have never seen a film of her's or anything and I know nothing about her, but I have never been inspired to find out. She is probably ok.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi jen-fabulous post, as usual!! I love your Chloe dress and I think for a wedding silver shoes would be lovely! Loving your bird picks too!! Kim is perfection here, I agree!! The sonia rykiel skirt is ace!!

RASPBERRY said...

That can't be Lily Donaldson :o

Yeah, I don't like Jessica Alba either...

And I adore Camilla Belle, she always looks gorgeous!

Amazing blog, such a great work!

SET said...

LOL u ae funny, agree with naomi choice, oprah was appropriate now it was a old guy's party, jessica alba seems mean, lol agree with u. d$g is hot hot, lily looks funny weair facial expressions all the time. still like adrian she seems sweet, jada's dress is awful,ur chloe dress is fab, i wish i had it

saray said...

-I have a bird necklace - I actually have the one on the right in the first row..
-the Sonia Rykiel skirt is stuning!
-Lily Donaldson looks bad! the outfit is bad and her hair is bad!!!

Aretha said...

The D&G ads are lovely, loven them all

JuliAM said...

i love the d&g campaign. although i love d&g period. to be honest, a lot of the italian houses really brought it for fall08. love.

enc said...

Jen, I don't believe it. I've been reading your posts through Google Reader forever, and I finally realized that it wasn't updating them; all this time I thought you weren't posting! OHNO!!!!!

That's why you haven't heard from me.

Anyway, brilliant post, as usual.

The Clothes Horse said...

Lily Cole is a porcelain doll--though you have her listed as Lily Donaldson.

K.Line said...

So glad to learn that you haven't stopped posting! I love the Chloe dress, fyi. I think it would look great with a really modern patent sandle in rich royal blue. I profiled one a while ago (from 9West) which I have worn extensively with everything from prim clothing to formal wear to shorts: http://line4line.blogspot.com/2008/03/shoe-3-exciting-one.html. It looks really dark here but it's actually a shiny, fantastic blue...

Potato chips? For real?
