RESORT

MARC JACOBS RESORT
This collection is a little kooky, not to say that I don't like the color combinations and the way he incorporated hearts, bows and flowers. Some of the looks remind me of the early 90s. There are some good pieces, but I don't think it's wearable as a complete look.

RAISA GORBACHEV
FOUNDATION PARTY


EMILY BLUNT
Is she's still dating Michael Bublé? She's lucky that he can sing to her all night. I like her midnight blue dress here, but the train is a little weired.

KATE BECKINSALE
She looks refreshing in black and white. My favorite look of the night.

MARY J BLIGE
Her hair is looking a little better then before. She really needs to get that tattoo removed in my opinion.

PETRA NEMCOVA
That bun is a little strange to me. She looks okay, as much as I like her and her personality, there seems to always be something off about her outfits on the red carpet.

CAPRICE BOURRET
This is a very interesting dress. I wish she had not worn those earrings and chosen a clutch with no embellishments, this dress speaks volumes for itself no?

NATALIE PRESS
SJP, Paris and now she is trying to do the hat thing.

PREGGERS
PREGGERS


NICOLE KIDMAN

Cover your mouth, you might catch the pregnancy bug that's going around. Sometimes when I see pictures of Nicole Kidman, I ask myself, pregnant or pillow? She's apparently suppose to pop in a month or so...


TORY / CAMILLA / NICOLE
Matthew McConaughey's baby mama she is looking great! This girl always seems so peaceful, maybe it's just me.


GWEN STEFANI
I love her pregnancy style more then her normal style. Strange huh?

LISA MARIE PRESLEY
That dress is too long, the baby looks like it could just drop between her legs.


PREGNANT 'MAN' THOMAS BEATIE

Why do they keep calling him/her the worlds first pregnant man? He's not really a full blown man now is he?! I'd be scared of bringing a child in this world into this situation. How are they going to take all of this growing up? You can't get rid of those type of scars. I'm not against them or anything, they can do what they want, it's their life.


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

CELEB LOOKS


KATE HUDSON
I've been looking for a nice brown sling bag like this everywhere.


EVA LONGORIA PARKER
She looks like she just got married all over again. So glam!


NICOLE RICHIE
I've got the high top converses, but I don't feel like I get that much use out of them. Maybe I need to get a short pair like the ones Nicole is wearing.

LINDSAY LOHAN AND GIRLFRIEND
Those two really need to get their roots done together. In other news, Linsay's shoes are pretty hot.

Nice vest.


HALLE BERRY

When are we going to see her daughter? How long will she be in hiding for?


NATALIE PORTMAN AND BOYF
What a stylish duo. I've just realized that I've never dated a bearded guy, I wonder what that is like?

Simplicity is key.


SIENNA MILLER
This picture is a bit old, but I still can't get over her bag. So cute.


OLSENS


The anticipation of eating makes her glum. I'm kidding, errr...

Suzy from style bubble & Jennine from the coveted ask the same question...

Once again, a solid post. Well done.

I really liked Isacc's collection as well, the colors are really great, and I love the blue dress.

I think emily blunt rocks. Everyone's socks.

sara said...

Eeek I am not a fan of the marc jacobs resort but I am more than in love with the Issac Mizrahi, it is beautiful! And I really like the 80s chanel ads.
I have a pair of the low-top converse in navy and I get much use out of them, they're great.

-Giselle <3<3<3

Key said...

I´m SOOOOO worry about Agathe´s missing... and sad too :(

I´ll miss her.

Key said...

...ohh and i forgot to tell you I LOVEEE ISAAC MIZRAHI resort collection. It´s amazing.
I´m pretty surprised with this designer. :)

alloftheabove said...

Great post. So complete! I loveeeee Chanel. And I think the most recent Chanel adds are the best. They're the most dramatic.

Jennifer Stoddart said...

Love Kate Hudson's look there. I've also been looking for a bag like that.

I've been concerned about/missing Agathe and Style Bytes too...

kitty kate said...

WHAT A GREAT BLOG HERE.
CARE TO TRADE LINKS?

Belinda said...

Hahahaha....I was just on the Marc Jacobs website before visiting yours! Love his Marc for Marc Jacobs Fall 2008 collection.

And WOAAAAAH! I've not heard about the "pregnant man"....that's tooo weird! Must do some research!

coco said...

I really like the Marc Jacobs collection, I'm really into him again at the moment.
I am lusting after Lindsay's zip Balenciaga's - I WANT THEM BADLY!!!!
And I think Nicole looks amazing as usual. Have you got her issue of US Bazzaar? Doesn't she look adorable in the yellow Dior???

Times of Glory said...

Such a beautiful and comprehensive post! I understand that Marc Jacobs try to make the design more artistic, however the downside is that it is hard to wear for real women. On the other hand, Issac Mizrahi really let the simple cut focusing on the beautiful shape of different women!

The dress of Kate Beckinsale is sooooooo elegant and stunning! It is perfect! Totally love it xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Kaye said...

Mizrahi did really well for resort- my fav too! And Lilo's vest. I almost feel guilty for loving it (because its lilo- you know wt I mean?)!!

The Olsen caption made my day.
Thanks for a fab post, Jen!

penelope said...

i loving Issac Mizrahi's collection! god; it's the epitome of chic. although it is~ colorful.

however; i;m loving Natalie Press's head piece though! it's gorgeous!

jayne said...

woah not feeling the Marc at all, odd, he's usually God in my book...hmm

but Mizrahi is finally out of the cluthces of Target and therefore amazing! color! color! color! yay! it's all good!

hmm chanel ads, I'm partial to the 2000s b/c the 80s/90s feel really really dated

emily blunt looks gorgeous, as usual haha, I think they are still dating, People magazine did some weird feature w/ buble's mom and she said how much she loved emily so...

woah nic, is due this month, scary....

haha the comment you wrote about the olsens was great, and sadly likely true

In Yr Fshn said...

Wow, that Mizrahi collection is outstanding. Really simple and beautiful.
Natalie has such great style and I love how she keeps picking up indie rock bf's....

Mimi said...

Oh I haven't been here so long because I moved to another PC.Sorry!But I see here nothing really changed.Your posts are still great :).

The MJ adds remind me a lot to my mum's old clothes.I don't like it.But the white version of Posh's dress is very pretty.

alis said...

WOah. SO many great stuff you got here today.

Kate and Sienna's bags are to die for.
Everybody looks fabulous.

Gwen looks nice but is that a double chin I see? If I ever get pregnant I'd like to look like Nicole Kidman.

What's this pregnant man thing??? Is he actually pregnant??? Somebody enlighten me, because if this is possible it certainly won't be me who will be giving birth to our future baby.

Nicole Richie's outfit with the black skirt is so cute.

Trying to kiss a long-ish bearded man like the one here is nasty. A stubble looks very sexy, and nice to rub your hand against, but hurts the face like hell and gives me rashes.

Vain and Vapid said...

The MJ Resort is a bit kooky, I totally agree but there are some really cool pieces there like that satin smoking jacket.

Love those vintage Chanel ads, it's too hard to choose 1 favorite decade though but the TV commercials from the 90's were really great.

Tala said...

all in favor of lindsay lo dumping samanthan ronson and going back to being a redhead say aye... AYEEEE!!!!

and chanel, no matter the decade, is always the best :)

Jill said...

Isaac Mizrahi's collection is very good I like the juxtaposition of the structured peices and the loos flowing dresses. I really like that jacket dress in the Marc Jacobs Collection.
Definetly way too many pregnant women in Hollywood right now.
