Gaga for Versace

I had to take a double take when casting my eye upon the latest Spring/Summer 2014 images for Versace featuring Lady Gaga. I initially thought I was looking at a younger Donatella Versace and Lady Gaga, looks different than normal, although poor soul, she rarely looks normal. I actually quite like her appearance in the campaign, its refreshing, feminine, no weird or wacky pieces to look silly; and for a person who is not too fond (to say the least) of her or her general style, that is saying A LOT. Wearing minimal makeup and sporting Donatella’s sleek blonde tresses and wearing beautiful gowns she looks almost like a young Donatella has been cloned and is reliving the glory days of her youth. LADY GAGA FOR VERSACE (1)

Dontatella and Lady Gaga seem to be good friends…

“I am honoured that my friend Lady Gaga is the face of our new Versace campaign. I wanted to capture her true beauty and spirit in images that are elegant and alluring. She is like family to me, the embodiment of the Versace DNA.”

Well, Gaga certainly seems to be Donatella’s doppelganger, not too sure about family, but who knows the plot may thicken!

The images were lensed by Mert and Marcus at the location in London and so far only these two have been released.LADY GAGA FOR VERSACE (2)

Victoria Beckham Launches Capsule Collection

Hiya Poutlings! ❤

Victoria Beckham is to launch a capsule collection called Icon featuring the selected reworked designs from her archive collections starting from Spring/Summer 2009 season. The line of seven Beckham dresses coveted by fashionistas around the world will start at £1,000 or roughly R14,000.

Together with my personal edit of the spring/summer 2013 collections, I wanted to be able to offer an exclusive product on the site that was in keeping with the signature aesthetic that’s very special to me, I introduced Icon in response to requests for designs from as far back as my first collection from customers, and I wanted to find a way to offer them key dresses from the archive, but in newly-reworked colours and fabrics.. I hope these updated styles will become unique, limited edition pieces and am excited to revisit other archive designs as the Icon collection continues to grow.NEW ICON RANGE - VICTORIA

The dress that was unveiled as the broke is this navy and spearmint frock inspired by Victoria’s Spring/Summer collection. It will be interested to see what other dress will make it to the Icon collection… are you feeling this one? I don’t know if I like it or not. It may grow on me… maybe?

VICTORIA BECKHAM - NYFW

Meanwhile Victoria showed both her collection at NYFW. The main line textures and colour blocks while Victoria, Victoria Beckham collection is about layers and versatile pieces, which I think I prefer to the first Icon collection piece…

I’m really excited about this collection, it’s effortlessly cool and easy and we’ve developed a lot of textures, it looks like there’s a lot of layers. The idea is that you don’t have to think about it. It looks like two pieces – jumpers and skirts – but it’s just one piece and you can just zip yourself up and off you go.

Be sure to check out Vicky’s website for the new ecommerce website and new pieces of Icon collection.

Shoe Porn : Shoes fit for a Princess

Hey Pouters!

Do you have a dream to one day own a pair of Louboutin’s and live happily ever after? Well you better get counting all those coins in your piggy banks!!

Christian Louboutin has unveiled his new interpretation of Cinderella’s glass slipper in celebration of Disney’s re-release of the famous story on DVD and Blu-ray in Autumn in the states (our spring). News of this collaboration was first announced in April.

Cinderella is not only an iconic character when it comes to beauty, grace and fairytale love, but also shoes. Her character and her story dictacted the design to me, it was all there in the pages and words of this tale.”

The princess worthy design features heels covered in crystals, two delicate, shimmering butterfly embellishments and naturally, any Louboutin lover would know, his signature red soles.

The slipper is a magic wand of transformation, which cojures confidence, beauty and love. The dream is a major factor in my language of design. There are no limits in the world of fantasy and there is always a happily ever after.”

Aw, isn’t that so artsy-fartsy of him to say, he should of added “REMORTGATE YOUR HOMES IF YOU WANT TO WEAR THESE, MWAHAHAHA!” Haha, bad Fi, Now, I am not sure what I was expecting from Louboutin on this project, but I don’t think it was this – however, the shoes are wow! I’d hate to lose one, wouldn’t you?

This unique powder blush lends itself to multiple effects: blended together, the harmony is ideal for sculpting and accentuating the natural contours of the face.
