SWIMWEAR

URBAN OUTFITTERS SWIMWEAR
The one piece swimsuit is back, yeah I remember also saying that last summer. The one piece has been looking so good that I find myself more attracted to it then a regular two piece. You can do a lot more with a full swimsuit, and the swimwear from Urban Outfitters is a great example.


I really love the black one in the middle. It would definitely would be a contender for me, it's got a great 40s feel about it.

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


BALENCIAGA RESORT

The first thing I noticed about this collection were the amazing cuts, but then again it is Balenciaga how could they not be? The collection is nice, but I'm not overly impressed. so far it's one of my least favorite resort lines, maybe it's the color palette...


What do you think of the new twist on the oh so famous Balenciaga bag?

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

THE SIMPSONS

They've changed so much since their Conservative church going days haven't they? Pete and Ashlee were apparently just leaving from a doctors visit in the above picture, that's quite a fancy dress for an appointment isn't it?

Just because your pregnant doesn't mean we want to see your nips.

I like the bag and the cut of this dress on Jessica, but the color seriously washes her out. She just looks so...yellow?


PETE WENTZ CLOTHING LINE

I thought I recognized that last sweater (See below on Ashlee)

It's quite nice isn't it? The collection is nothing great, but I'll give him credit for some good causal pieces.

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

MAGAZINES


PREITY ZINTA DOES VOGUE INDIA
I'm so glad India got their own Vogue, they have such an incredible sense of unique fashion and taste.



KIMORA LEE SIMMONS DOES 'GIANT'
I have to admit I watch her show "Fabulosity" or whatever it's called. It's kinda fun to see her rant and rave, congrats on her for making it the way she has.



WENDY BRANDES IN MARIE CLAIRE
I don't usually buy Marie Claire in fact I don't think I've ever bought it in my life, but when Wendy wrote on her blog that she was featured in the magazine I had to pick up an issue. The page is now covered in stains since I was eating my lunch white reading it at work, but the article was very touching. I won't ruin it, just go out and buy it. On another note I have to say I was very impressed by the content of this magazine, I didn't know they had so much fashion coverage! I will definitely pick up next month's issue.


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


GOLDEN NYMPH AWARDS

I've always had this obsession with forest green, I think it's such a rich color that is not worn enough. So needless so say, I'm obsessed with Beckie's dress, and I love the creativeness of it. I wish I had worn something this sophisticated to Prom back in the day.


KK
MINUS A K
Where is the other sister Khloe? I'm assuming she's probably working away at DASH while her wicked sisters get to have all the fun because they are pretty and skinny. Harsh, but true! TEAM KHLOE!


LAURA PREPON
Oh I miss That' 70s show. Hey, now that I think about it, what happened to That 80s show? I guess it didn't rate well.

MELANIE BROWN
Wow this is probably the best dress she's worn as of yet.

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

SATINE
BOUTIQUE OPENING


NICOLE RICHIE
She's so petite again, I really thought she was going to keep the baby weight but I guess not. On the plus side she does look great in that dress. I see her slipping back more and more into her pre-pregnancy style.


ALEXANDER WANG
So young and so much talent. Lucky.


TRACEE ELLIS ROSS
Here she is with the Satine Boutique owner.


ERIN WASSON
Well now, she won't let something like a leg in a cast keep her from a good party.


ERIKA CHRISTENSEN

I quite enjoy the combination of primary colors.


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


LOVE GURU PREMIERE


MEGAN GOOD
I didn't like this dress from far away, but up close the print is quite pretty.


TILA TEQUILA
This is probably the only thing she's worn that I've actually liked. I really need to get something hot pink, it's so trendy right now.


MARISKA HARGITAY

I think the cut of this dress is a little too high, there's something off about it.


JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE
I use to be a fan of his when he was in Nsync, but ever since he went solo he's become so cocky. I have to say he's amazing live (I saw him in Australia), so credits for that.

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


THE HAPPENING PREMIERE


ZOOEY
DESCHANEL
This girl is the queen of the cutsey dresses.


MISCHA BARTON
God she's just shamelessly promoting herself, the girl isn't even in this movie. She must attend more events then any other celebrity.


IN MARCHESA


ERIN FETHERSTON

I remember when she was the designer of the moment, what ever happened to that? She seems to be spending time trying to be a celebrity instead of working on her line. I could be wrong, but that's the impression I'm getting.

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

MISCHA BARTON IS
POCAHONTAS OR SOMETHING...


Not a good look.

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

CELEB LOOKS

NICOLE RICHIE

This reminds me of the H & M tribute to Marimekko collection.


PEOPLE FROM THE HILLS


LAUREN CONRAD
This outfit is well put together, I love red on her. Why can't she look like this at events instead of boring and safe?


LAUREN & AUDRINA TOGETHER FINALLY
Love love the color of Lauren's top, I've been meaning to get something in that shade, but I haven't yet. As for Audrina, I don't like the vest with nothing under look. Cheesy.

Has she had her boobs done? They look giganormous here.


WHITNEY PROT
Someway, somehow I need to be blessed with this blue skirt.


SPEIDI, NOT SO CUTE AFTERALL?

She could be Rumer's sister!



ZOOEY DESCHANEL


IN MONIQUE LHUILLIER



KATE MOSS


IN ALEXANDER MCQUEEN
I've seen this dress on a couple of celebrities, but I have to say I appreciate it much more without the red belt.


AGYNESS DEYN
Does this girl ever stop partying? I'm tired of her, but I wonder how long till the fashion industry is?


IN CHANEL


KEISHA COLE IN DVF

I'm still in love with these pieces from the Diane Von Furstenberg collection, I hope I can find somethign similar for the summer. Normally I don't like Kimono style wraps, but this is a fresh and modern take on it.


DITA VON TEESE OR HEATHER SWEET
I think she should shock us, but changing back to her old self. Now that would be interesting.


CLAIRE DANES
What can I say I'm not a fan of hers, ever since her fake performance and Romeo + Juliette years ago. It's not to say that I don't love the movie, Leo was great, in fact everyone was great, but her. I didn't believe in their love, I felt like she and Leo didn't have any chemistry and she really could not deliver shakespear with authenticity.


HILARY DUFF
This is just proof that a good scarf can work wonders.


ANTM WINNER EVA MARCILLE
(FORMERY PIGFORD)

I love her new look, she looks a lot more mature then her ANTM days.


TIMBO AND MANIEL

I never liked this girl, maybe it's cause she played an annoying character on 7th heaven. Ever after that she seemed like a bitch, maybe that's why she and Justin get along so well. Anyway she needs to learn to do her makeup, or at least put gloss on because her face is looking tired.


RACHEL ZOE
Ever since she got her face smoothed out, I can stand to look at pictures of her a little longer. LOVE the dress.


ZOE KRAVITZ
Yay! She's got hair again! I didn't mind the short do, but I definitely prefer my Zoe with more hair.


SARAH LARSON
She's looking good for getting dumped by one of the world's most eligible bachelors. She's really starting to grow on me, style wise.

Wendy said...

Great post, so entertaining and now I feel enlightened. I'm sick of Agyness too, she needs a new image.

M said...

WOW! AMAZING POST! *CraZy applause*

1234 said...

everytime i see pics of zoe kravitz, shes often with her dad. and i always think that hes her boyfriend of something. AHH. about the glosses, i really like the juicy tubes too, but i find the maybelline shinyliscious gloss works really well, and its cheap!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Jen-excellent post, as usual!! The Balenciaga bag is to die for-I adore it!! Keisha looks lovely, doesn't she!!

prettygeeky.com said...

I'm really finding one piece swimsuits more appealing as well...I tried one on and haven't been able to stop thinking about it. ahah

aizat.cinta.goddess said...

i love the one piece swimwear!!

and lol to the simpson sisters!!
sent them to church back!!

WendyB said...

That comment on the Kardashians made me laugh.

WendyB said...

And while I was laughing over the Kardashians, my eye skipped over your mention of me in Marie Claire. Thanks!

Old.soul.in.the.city said...

over agyness blah! I have the UO black bathing suit you want and I love it seriously get so many compliments on it! and it has cups to support which is rare.
:)

The Stylish Wanderer said...

I think that, although they have cute suits, Urban Outfitters is way to expensive to buy for swimwear. But thats just me

ღ M ♥¨`*•.¸¸.•*´¨♥ღ said...

as usual, a great post!

kisses sweet lovely outfits (almost all)

Savvy Gal said...

I tried on the red Chanel Ankle purse Agyness had on her arm and it was just hideous. I don't know what I am supposed to do with the bag and it's $1400, why???

Carolina Lange said...

Beautiful swimsuits! Great choices!

The Balenciaga Resort Collections is really amazing! Love it!

I love that dress Nicole R. is wearing! So cute!

And I never really liked Agyness!

* Fashion Dreamer * said...

Wow....super amazing post!! I'm also sick of old Agy, she's just everywhere at the moment. And her dress sense is totally overrated.

Jennifer Stoddart said...

I LOVE those one pieces. I'm so going to Urban Outfitters this weekend and praying that they still have lots.

I need to be blessed with that blue skirt that Miss Port is wearing too.

And I'm so loving Hilary's look lately, the scarf and bag pull that casual outfit together to perfection.

As always, awesome post!!

miss hautttefashion said...

i. love. alexander wang.

Kaye said...

the balen is fab all on its own but it's not so much resort. I was getting an urban city chic vibe from it. The cutting really is excellent.

I'm glad Nicole's style is getting back to her pre-pregnancy days! Haven't been too inspired by her recent outfits...

Emily said...

such a fun read! so funny to see the pictures of lauren and audrina together, but was it really necessary for them to run around holding hands? come on. i'm also disappointed that nicole richie is back to her skeletal self. she looked so great right after the pregnancy.

fashion herald said...

oh, damn, Kate in that McQueen is amazing. great group of pics, and I totally agree about duff's scarf. LOVE a great scarf.

terren said...

wow! there is so so much goodness in this post! i love all the zooey stuff and i want a one piece too. i love the floral one.

(R)evolver74 said...

The Alexander McQueen dress is gorgeous!
As for JT, he could totally make a living as a comedian. That ad where he gets dragged around by the girl sipping pepsi through a straw? Brilliant! I couldn't stop laughing the first time I saw it.

Jill said...

I'm loving the vintage options for one piece bathing suits that have been coming out of the woodworks. I think they can be much more flattering than some two pieces depending on the cut.

Lust for Fashion said...

that was an amazing post! i loved all the pictures and it was just very inspirational! i would love to exchange links with you :)

Key said...

Kate Moss rocks that McQueen dress!
She looks stunnning. Maybe she was on a photoshot or something ´cause she´s using a lot of make-up!. That´s not something she does daily :S

Nay'Chelle said...

Great post! I like the Urban Outfitters swimsuits. And I could actually see myself wearing that last Pete Wentzjacket.

Miss Woo said...

O_0 Mischa Barton has some, ahem, interesting outfits these days..

frankie-lou&tallulah said...

great post.
loved nicoles outfit at the boutique opening.
shes getting so tiny again.
x.

Make Do & Mend said...

Loved the Rumer comment that slipped in! The DVF tunic is wondeful.

jayne said...

oo that floral 1 peice is great, it would be nice if they're coming back, sometimes bikinis aren't attractive and can be demeaning

Isn't marie claire full of such wonderful little gems such as Wendy's article!? I picked the magazine up a few months ago and like the odd mix of celeb, beauty, culture, fashion, and some fascinating articles.

ewww one mn ashlee is all "i'm not preggers" and now she's going all out yuck

aggie looks good, punky in chanel

Balenciaga has some nice lines, but too muted for summer, though the noveau bag is cool

Cate said...

JEN thanks for commenting again!
- ilove the black swimsuit (the one with the 40s feel) too - generally i like swim suits - for example there's no danger your top or bottom could fall down without you noticing.
- you're right, the cuts of the balenciaga collection are really amazing - hey, it's balenciaga! but i also agree on the colours, they should have chosen more colourful colours! but yeah, i like the new variation of the balenciaga bag!
-ashlee was going to the doctors? in that shiny jumpsuit? hm. i bet she wouldn't have done that in her conservative church days.
-i don't quite agree on jessica. she doesn't look yellow, more... beige?
-the sweater ashlee is wearing from the pete wentz line is nice. everyone seems to have their own collection now don't they?
-gosh i HAVE to tell my friend about preity zinta and indian vogue! she adores preity zinta and india and bollywood!
-gosh, i still can't tell the kkk sisters apart.
- That 70s show... i have to youtube it.
- oh noooooonicole keep the baby weight!!!!!
- zooey deschanel is so amazing in the hot pink dress. i can't believe she's 28!!! and in the backless monique lhuillier dress she is beautiful too!
- the second one of mischa barton's pocahontas looks is probably the most horrible. but i like the first one.
- but i love nicole's marimekko-ish dress!!!
- well, the vest with nothing under look works for some people, meaning super skinny people like kate moss (who doN't exist in real life). talking of my favourite model, she in alexander mcqueen....wOOOOOOw. glad she left out the belt.
-i'm tired of agyness too (ok, how could i not? i'm a kate moss fan!), burberry already dropped her. though i have to admit she wears the chanel dress better than the model.
- YEAH, that's an idea!!!! dita von teese changing back to her old self!!! (by the way, she was on germany's next topmodel teaching the girl how to pose burlesque)
-rachel zoe's head looks so big in comparison to her size zero body.

ciao jen, have a nice weekend!

fashionpuppy said...

LOL, i guess u had a lot of time when u wrote that xDDD. The black swimsuit is amazing!! And the cuts are adoreable, too. wow. hmm.. kate moess does really not look good in these blazer. but i dont really like her at all..

Imelda said...

Claire Danes looks really good and I really love the dress!

The Clothes Horse said...

Seriously, Ashlee needs to put the girls away. That was my first thought when I saw that photo.

saray said...

- I love all the swimsuits that you posted!
-the Balenciaga big black miniskirt is stuning!
-OMG Ashlee was so ugly! Jessica looked the same.. I actially like that dress on het.. and her bag is fab!
-Nicole looks amazing.. it's a great little black dress.
-thats a classic Erin wasson look! she looks good.
-Tila tequila hot pink dress is hot! I think it could look even better with a diffrent pair of shoes..
-I think Justin looks Bad clothes wise.. his jacket is really ugly!
-Mischa need a stylist! ASAP!
-Lauren and Whitney look fab! I really like whitney's skirt!
-I hate that outfit on aggy..

thanks for the great post!

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...
