SHOES SHOES SHOES

HOW DO YOU WEAR
YOUR GLADIATORS?





So as you know my Internet died last week, this is what happens when you siphon your wireless Internet connection off someone you don't know for 7 months for free. I don't know what happened, maybe they packed up and moved? So here I am legit again, and paying for it :) I have to say it's amazing the things you start doing when you no longer have access, I started reading a book I've been meaning to get to for a while (Sophie Kinsella - Remember Me) and I cleaned my apartment to a sparkle!

Back to fashion: Truth is, most of us know gladiator/ Grecian style sandals have been around for a long time. Balenciaga has managed to bring them back, and present them in a creative way that we haven't seen before.

CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN


LAST YEARS IT SHOE


THIS YEARS IT SHOE

I love the zippers, I think they are much more doable then the studded boots. I hope this style hits mainstream really soon, you know, like before summer is over!

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


3.1 PHILIP LIM RESORT


This is my second favorite resort collection, after Issac Mizrahi one we saw a few weeks ago. He's one of my favorite designers, but what is with the models? They look like they'd rather be sitting on the toilet relieving themselves. (Especially the one in the middle, top)



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


GET CARRIE'S FLOWER
AT ASOS.COM


I love the flower the model is wearing, it's much softer.

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


VANESSA PARADIS FOR
MIU MIU: FIRST LOOK



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


CELEB STYLE: RHIANNA

I haven't done a celeb style in an age, but Rhianna has inspired me.


RIRI'S TUTU COLLECTION



I'm not sure I quite understand her obsession, but she does look good in them due to her tall stature.


OTHER RIRI LOOKS
Only Riri would wear the full leg Balenciaga's! This girl is genuinely edgy.

She should wear red more often.

I like this reddish color hair on her, it's less harsh and compliments her skin tone.


IN PPQ

I don't like the way her hair is styled here, it's shaped like a mushroom.


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


SOLANGE
KNOWLES

22 BIRTHDAY


BEYONCE
& SOLANGE

It's nice to see these two together.


LALA
LOHAN AND HER GIRLFRIEND

I like Lindsay's hair pulled back like that.


JOJO / MAMA KNOWLES
There's something I never liked about Papa and Mama Knowles. There's just something sort of strange about them, I can't put my finger on it. I remember Beyonce saying once how he would make her run and sing at the same time to build her stamina.


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


THE EDGE OF LOVE STUFF

Sienna's dress is horrible, it looks like a Halloween costume. Keira on the other hand worked it out, that sparkly jacket is genius. She looks like her old casual self, but just a step up.


Sienna's outfit here looks like something I'd wear to work. Wish she would have looked a bit more polished. Keira on the other hand, major points again.


Much improvement here, maybe she heard all the bad press about her previous outfits?



IN ERDEM


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


IT'S MILAN FASHION WEEK


VERSACE


JANET JACKSON
I love this color on her, much improved from what she normally wears. Her boobs still looks strange though.

She's looking so good, Janet must be drinking from the fountain of youth.


CLAUDIA SCHIFFER IN VERSACE


TILDA SWINTON IN YSL


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


THE DAYTIME EMMYS


WTF: TYRA BANKS
I don't get it, why does Tyra match from head to toe? Oh wait I do get it, It's Tyra. Go ahead, smile with your eyes girlfriend.


MEGAN WARD

These chunky necklaces make the outfit, bravo to the stylist.


ANTM WINNER: EVA MARCILLE (PIGFORD)
To me this girl has gotten even more gorgeous since she left the show.


KRISTOFF ST JOHN & DAUGHTER
You may not know this, okay you don't, but I'm a huge fan of The Young and the Restless, I've been watching it since I was old enough to understand. I just had to post this picture of Kristoff, besides the fact that he's hot, his daughter is the cutest thing I've seen in ages. I love her dress too, I'd totally wear it in my size.

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


TRUMP HOTEL PARTY


NAOMI WATTS
I like it, but at the same time, there's so much going on!


DEMI MOORE
I guess the rumors are false again, she doesn't look very pregnant to me.


HEIDI KLUM
Heidi can do no wrong, you hear me? hahah


THE TRUMPS (AND IVANKA)

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


BET AWARDS PRE-PARTY


TOCCARA / TAMERA MOWRY / EVA MARCILLE

I can't believe how skinny Toccara is now, and Eva she's gorgeous. She's really matured since the ANTM days.


ASHANTI AND HER MAN NELLY
Finally, they are public!


EVA MARCILLE
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


PEOPLE FROM THE HILLS


SPEIDI
Oh how I've missed my favorite 'Candid' couple. What can I say, I'm obsessed with their stupidity.


LAUREN CONARD

I've got the same leggings as she does ( I think, mine are AA) I've really got to wear them sometime!

I love Lauren's high waisted skirts, but I'm starting to get a little tired of seeing her in them nearly everyday.

The print of Stephanie's dress is nice, tribal prints are so this season. haha.

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


NICOLE RICHIE & MARY-KATE PARTY








God this looks like the type of stuff I would do in high school, it all just seems a little trashy to me. MK, get it together like your sister! She's still young I guess, at 22. I'm 23 and I'm pretty much over that stuff. I'll still party or go out drinking, but I guess things are more posh and classy now.

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

CELEB LOOKS


KATE MOSS

Her daughter is in fur already? Yuk! Let's pray to the animal Gods and hope it's fake! Somewhere out there, there might be a raccoon wanting it's coat back.


Cute I guess.



WTF: KATE MOSS
Omg, why would she wear something sheer like that with her daughter around? I dunno, I've lost some respect for Kate after this one.


NICOLE RICHIE

Awwwww, my gosh Harlow looks like Joel! Love Nicole's Fedora here, note to self, must find one the same.


CAMILLA ALVES
She's almost ready to pop! Why doesn't this girl have a wikipedia page? She is dating Matthew after all!

I hope he wasn't really cheating on her in Nicaragua.


KELLY OSBOURNE
The glasses the bow...speechless.

Much better.

IN MATTHEW WILLIAMSON


ANNE HATHAWAY
PROMOTING GET SMART

IN DI MILO

I really like her hair styled this way, makes me want to cut mine in a bob. I really should. I'm still working the bangs though.


Like a tulip!


MARY-KATE OLSEN
She use to be my favorite Olsen, after all she seemed more human. Lately though, I dunno....



KATHERINE HEIGL

Are you going to be wearing a metallic swimsuit this summer? Somehow Katherine manages to keep it from looking trashy.


WTF: COURNTEY LOVE
I don't know why I'm whatthefucking, this is so natural for her!



PARIS HILTON
This is how Paris wears flowers in her hair. *sigh* somebody get her a clue.


MISCHA BARTON
Eeek, I'm not sure about those leggings. At least she's embracing her new curves.


KIKI DRUNKST

Love the pants! She's back!


BILSON
What's with all the fedora's lately? They are going through a revival.


NIA LONG
She's one of my favorite actresses, the camera just loves her!


SAM RONSON & GIRLFRIEND LALA LOHAN
Sam looks like a little grunge saint in her white outfit.


KATE HUDSON
I still can't believe she's dating Lance. Poor Owen, I hope he can keep it together this time.

woww that was one heck of a post! haha thank you :] i enjoyed it.

and i am finally re-doing my blogroll, and you are the first to be on it

Belinda said...

HUGE post Jen, full of lovely tid bits :o)

Philip Lim Resort - gimme gimme....please!

Jennifer Stoddart said...

I don't normally like metallic bikinis...in fact, I usually mock the people who wear them at the beach, hehe...but Katherin Heigl looks hot in that one!

Anne Hathaway is totally cute.

Fab post, Jen (as always...)

Savvy Gal said...

I don't understand Kate Moss at all. What is she thinking letting her daughter wear fur and she herself is nake with that transparent dress. That is leading by example for you. Love all the fashion pieces.

copperoranges said...

in regards to the last post: OMG rachel b looks so gorgeous at the herve leger / bcbg party!

beyonce's parents always reminded me of the simpson girls' parents. stage obsessed and pushy.

it took rumer willis to make me realize how not so bad looking kelly osbourne is.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Jen-welcome back!! Excellent post, as usual! I love the be jewelled glads and Rhianna can do no wrong for me-I adore all her outfits!!

Fashion Tidbits said...

Keira Knightley is looking super good lately with her new movie out

coco said...

This so makes up for the time you haven't been able to post.
I think Nicole looks so cute with Harlow, and I love her in the white dress, she looks so pretty.
The Carrie style flower is really cute, although it look like it might break easily, though I guess it isn't something you would wear everyday.

Maybelline Jones said...

Yay! You're back!

pimprenelle said...

ohhh so glad to finally be back to the real life with internet in my new flat so I can read blogs like yours yay
Love Rihanna with the Balanciaga gladiators they're sooo gorgeous I want them, gotta admit they make an outfit, don't need to work too much on the rest with them!
Didn't recognize Toccara with the weight loss, thought she was the best of ANTM's plus size models. (still can't believe I cried when Whitney whined about being bullied because of being bigger and it's all apparently fake....)

deexdeexdreamer said...

making up for lost time! though some things never change- paris's terrible styling of the flower crown. Admittedly,i'd be more bummed if she got it right though!

The Kate Moss thing was a lil creepy. I hope her daughter doesnt see a lot of men coming and going at her age...

Kat said...

I am loving rhianna's hair at the moment - looks very cool. As are the balenciaga shoes!

That vanessa miu miu ad is a bit yawn.

Keira looks stunning in all her promotion looks especially the purple dress. Sienna is a little less polished but i love the cream dress.

Why does anne hathaway insist on wearing hideous red dresses when she carries off black ones so well?

loving this super long post btw!

Make Do & Mend said...

You are funny with your internet heist!
Oh I like teh Miu Miu ads - Vanessa looks amazing.
god yeah KM put your t*ts away - yuk!

(R)evolver74 said...

How's the Sophie Kinsella book? I got burnt out on her after the Shopaholic series.

Fashion Fleur said...

super fun to read!!! xx

Silvana* said...

i cant stan speidi and their always matching hats.
but i looooove rachel bilsons look!

Lauren said...

Loved this post! I like bejeweled gladiators personally. Ew to Kate Moss and Katherine Heigls' bikini, and yay for Kirsten Dunst and Anne Hathaway.

Emily said...

oh where to even begin...first of all, if you haven't seen the video of keira and sienna playing a fun trivia game, you should find it, it's so cute to see them interact! also, i'm now obsessing hard over nicole's white dress with the little scalloped bottom!

Barret said...

Can you identify where the gladiator sandals are from? I love the lace up ones!

Neekoh said...

Ahh! So much to comment on!
First of all, I know exactly what you mean about being offline. I've been reading too! The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime. Highly recommended.
Love Rihanna. Her style, her music, everything. I want her to be my BFF :)
I like LC's high-waisted skirts too... I even bought a couple at F21. Pictures coming soon.
And I totally agree with MK's trashy high-school style party. 23 is not that much older, but it makes a helluva difference.
Anne Hathaway is channeling Posh, it seems.
DO NOT WANT Heigl. I have so much resentment for her that everything she does is fug in my eyes.
That's all for now! I've missed you... but I understand sometimes real life kicks in too ;)

jellofer said...

Yay! Another great post Jen! Glad to see you're back!

And gladiators...how I love them, but my bf ALWAYS makes silly comments when I wear them. "Are you going to fight the battle of Troy?" "Are you going to join American Gladiators?" LOL

oSoJanatical said...

THAT ISN'T NIA LONG, IT'S SANAA LATHAN, TOTALLY MY FAVE ACTRESS LOL TRUST ME!!

& I want Rachel Bilson's outfit! Absolutely adorable, I can never manage to wear my skinny belts just right like she always does

iñaki said...

I want gladiators for men!!
and OMG, you're such a bloody pro when it comes to putting together a post! good effort!

xx

stilettostetico said...

And "Riri"'s HOTissime presence sublimates all that She wears !!!!!
Even if many stylish choices are rather "Baroque" . . .
And Heidi K is simply Perfect . Point . . .

A Bientôt, Antoine

CoutureCarrie said...

Wow, you should publish this post in book form. I am going to be enjoying it for days! My Q is: Is Anne Hathaway trying to channel (or become) Vicky Beckham? Love everything you have here, BRAVO! xoxo CC

Fashion Is Poison said...

ah i'm so confused. the post seems to be endless which i love but don't know if i'm even posting in the right place. anyway, thanks for posting all those pictures!

RASPBERRY said...

Aw, I love gladiotor heels!

Harlow is Joel all over, I can't see Nicole ^^

Mia said...

This book is amazing : Remember Me !!

anyways i liked everything, i am not Rihanna's fan but she is okay- and regarding courtney love she is awesome and so is kate moss, and sienna and keira, i love both of them !!
ummmmm, lidsay lohan and nicole richie, do i even have to say anything about them ?? they are just way too awesome !

* Sienna and Kate, they are my Fashion Icon *

Blessed Be!
