Marvellous, Mediocre & Meh at the 2014 Golden Globes

Although I might be a bit late with an update of the Golden Globes that were held this past weekend, I did laugh seeing Mnet broadcasting messages throughout the weekend to watch them live at 3am on MONDAY morning (late afternoon/evening in Beverley Hills)…. I can think of better things to do at a time like that, sleep is most definitely the best option and that is what I was doing.

I can’t bring myself to watch these award shows they are always so long winded but I do take a guilty pleasure in looking at the beautiful people, some wearing attire with a certain ‘it’ factor and others wearing things that look like they got dressed in the dark…

Marvellous

Kate Beckinsale

Kate Beckinsale Golden Globes

This lady literally radiates from the red carpet, shining bright in her dress which has a gorgeous silver bustier top and thigh skimming maxi skirt with a mermaid tail which was adorned with rhinestones and which resulted in the dress glowing in the lights of the carpet. Kate’s face was left fairly toned down which complimented a messy-but-perfect updo and her look was finished off with Jimmy Choo shoes and an Edie Parker clutch in black.

Taylor Swift Taylor Swift Golden Globes

I cannot believe it, but Taylor Swift looks amazing to me. Normally I don’t pay a second glance to her but she ticked all the boxes for the Golden Globes ceremony from  her toned down makeup with a bright red lip or her simple but striking Carolina Herrera dress, paired with Christian Louboutin shoes, Jimmy Choo clutch and Lorraine Schwartz jewellery I cannot fault her look.

Guest Contribution : 5 Great Sunglasses brands

What makes a sunglasses brand great? First of all, it’s the quality of their products. This includes the materials used and the craftsmanship. Then, there’s design, which to some is even more important than quality. Last, but not least, it’s all about business. Taking the right decision at the right time means a successful label. Below are five famous sunglasses models, all created by brands who knew when it was time to enter the field, and how to do it. Click here for amazing brands that have defined what sunglasses are.

5 GREAT SUNGLASS BRANDS

1. Ray Ban Wayfarer. The brand was founded in 1937 with the purpose of making goggles for pilots. They branched out into eyewear for the masses, and to great success. The Wayfarers are one of the most popular sunglasses models of our times, although they’ve been previously adored in the 50s and 80s. Click here for more Ray Ban models on GlassesOnWeb.com.

2. Prada 27 NS. What began as a leathergoods shop in 1913’s Italy evolved slowly, but steadily. They launched a ready-to-wear line for the first time in 1989, and one year later they started designing eyewear. The past few years have been huge for Prada sunglasses, most of their collections immediately becoming popular with the fashion crowd.

3. Persol 0649. Similar to Ray Ban, the brand started early on (1917) to provide eyewear for a specific demographics (tram drivers). Their most famous model was popularized by Steve McQueen in the 60s, and it was revived in the past few years by both male and female celebrities.

4. Tom Ford Nikita. The designer launched his namesake brand in 2006, complete with menswear, beauty, eyewear and accessories. Already experienced from Gucci and YSL, Tom Ford knew what he wanted. Just a few years later, his sunglasses are worn by virtually any famous face and are coveted worldwide.

5. Miu Miu 10 NS. The sister brand of Prada, Miu Miu was founded in 1993. The brand soon launched an eyewear line, which became successful in no time. Along with their pentagonal frames, these are the most popular of recent seasons, especially in their glitter version.

Say What? : 3D Printed Shoes

Hiya Poutlings

Can you remember back to 2010 when 3D-printed shoes started to emerge (EHMERGED) as the young designers began embracing the technology.  If not, these shoes you may have seen online – all over the show, as they are to my knowledge the most pinned pair of shoes, ever. ha ha. Thanx lovely ladies that I follow on Pintrest 😉

Melonia Shoe

Melonia Shoe

This above pair designed by Naim Josefi and Souzan Youssouf and called Melonia shoe, which was nominated for Brit Insurance Design Award of the Year 2011 and was printed using powder nylon. the shoe was made out of a continuous loop, which made for an entirely different look.

3D printing is quickly on the rise and of course, within the fashion industry its being embraced by fashion designers. Its yet to have reached a point of being a widespread alternative to traditionally made shoes.

As the wearability is generally not practical when it comes to designer 3D printed shoes, some designers like Victoria Spruce has used which has generated lots of interest toward the technology still since her shoes don’t look at all like conventional shoes. Here are some rad 3D printed design shoes. hi-tech-fashion-3d-printed-shoes-andreia-chaves-invisible-shoes

Shoes by Rapidform The pros of both approaches is that it can combine classic shoe shapes with intricate printed heels, reduced cost of production as well as minimal to no waste.

I’m all for comfort when it comes to shoes, so if they can make them look funky but also comfortable, then count me in but until they can get this right I’m not going to running to the mall to get me some. What do you think?
