From Victoria Secret Angel to the Mad Hatter. The now 21-year old Chanel Iman appears on the cover of WSJ Magazine‘s December 2011 issue lensed by Hans Feurer and styled by Sabina Schreder. Draped in luxurious furs and baubles with her Lady Gaga-esque hats being the focus, the model evokes the spirit of an Italian socialite. Hmmm, ADR is that you?
It perplexes me that a person who was born male can not only capture the essence of femininity, but do it better than some of those who were born with it. Wearing Givenchy, Lea T appears on the cover of Elle Brasil December 2011 shot by Fábio Bartelt. I’ll never forget when the controversial model appeared on Oprah. I’m sure that episode was a little too much for America, but for me it gave me a great understanding of the issue. It took me only a few minutes into the show to believe that this is who she was born to be.
I need you all to grasp the magnitude of this look right here. Joan Smalls in head to toe Tom Ford. No, let me say that again in case you didn’t catch it the first time. Joan Smalls attended the MOMA film benefit honoring Pedro Almodóvar wearing a lace dress, strappy heels, and clutch all by Tom Ford. By now you should know how much I gag over his designs, just check out Chanel Iman for Wonderland Magazine and Beyonce paying homage in his women’s collection debut. As if the life of a model was not already glamorous enough, you get to wear one of the most exclusive designers of our time.
What could easily be deemed just a simple little black dress is punctuated to the extreme with intricate detailing. You have your full lace composition, sheer sleeves, side peplum puckering, all neatly tied up into an elegant velvet black bow. When I wear a LBD, I want to garner this type of attention. Nothing about this look says boring or run of the mill. Ladies, this is how you want to look for a holiday party. Classic and sophisticated. Tom Ford is untouchable, but you can try to create this look with one of the selections below.
In the fashion organization’s 8th year, The CFDA Vogue Fashion Awards was presented Monday night at the Skylight Soho in New York City. The lucky recipient of the generous $300,000 fund and business mentor was none other than Joseph Altuzarra. The designer who runs in circles with the likes of Alexander Wang is known for his cool downtown aesthetic. Altuzarra found himself up against the designers of Cushnie et Ochs, Carlie Cushnie and Michelle Ochs, jewelry designer Pamela Love, and Shane Gabier and Chris Peters of Creatures of the Wind. Aside from the huge announcement the highlight of the evening was the red carpet or in this case, green shrubbery arrivals. Designers, actresses, models and socialites posed in their finest alongside an earthy green background.
Lala Anthony arrived in a bright aqua blue Zac Posen dress that seemed to hug her every curve. I love how she accessorized with purple strappy heels and a fun clutch.
Amanda Seyfried showed up in a feathery white frock by Prabal Gurung.
Olivia Wilde supported the ladies of Cushnie et Ochs wearing a fun black dress with interesting peek-a-boo detailing.
Always one to go against the grain, Rachel Roy was dramatic as ever wearing a snow white fur vest and a long black skirt.
I loved Joan Smalls’ entire look including the makeup. She really went for it in Altuzarra.
I love Zoe Kravitz in this leather Alexander Wang dress. I guess the pointy toe is making a comeback.
Coco Rocha got her Carmen Sandiego on in this grey floral dress and floppy hat.
Liya Kibede shut it down in this head to toe shocking yellow look by Cushnie et Ochs.
Miranda Kerr’s hi-tops have got me itching for kicks! Seeing the model out and about with the little one in tow, rocking the infamous Isabel Marant Perkins Suede and Leather Wedge Sneakers has got me craving a rubber sole. The new mommy dons the sold-out sneakers with liquid leather leggings and a matching navy jacket. Love this look! She looks so relaxed, yet still stylish.
You might also remember these sneakers in black worn by Beyonce in the “Love on Top” music video. If you’re lucky enough to find them the price tag on these babies runs about $600. Yeah, not in my budget. I found some cool alternatives for less. If you want to give your pumps a rest then take a gander at the styles below.
