CelebrityStyle File: The 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show!

That time of year is upon us again, where some of the most beautiful women in the world hit the catwalk looking like total angels. No, really, they wear fabulous wings! Of course we are talking about the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show! This year was every bit as wonderful as before, and we were smitten by the heavenly looks! Our ears were also grateful for the musical guests, who kept the models smiling and dancing on the runway!

Oh, Karlie! How presh is Miss Kloss in her dragonfly wings?! We adore that corset and her cute-as-a-button expression!

How cute is this bestie moment between Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss?! The two talented ladies got to combine their professions for one fun evening! Oh, and Taylor totally brought down the house.

The pièce de résistance of the amazing event? The two million dollar “fantasy bras” worn by Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio. The stones on each bra were delicately hand-placed, and brilliant in blue and red tones that popped on the runway.

What motivated you to start your own business?

I was drawing for Disney and decided I wanted to work in fashion, so I combined my art and fashion and brought it all online.

 

What are three items you couldn’t leave home without?

Phone/camera/lifeline, planner, and black aviators.

 

What are the most beloved pieces in your wardrobe?

Vintage Chanel bags that I’ve been collecting from Rice and Beans Vintage, my grandmother’s necklace (that she gave me for my wedding before she passed away), and distressed denim.

 

What are a few staples that every girl should have in her closet?

Nude pointy toe heels, Chanel red lipstick, leather jacket, collection of white tees, trench coat, and a good watch.

 

What are some of your favorite trends at the moment?

Well it’s holiday, so jewel tones, embellishments, and metallics.

 

You are always donning a chic mani, what is your go-to look as of late?

Super minimalistic with nudes or blacks (or both). I’m really into shapes right now, but it might be something new next week, (stay tuned)!

 

What LuLu*s pieces would you style for a holiday, party-ready look?

The Lovers + Friends My Way Burgundy Jumpsuit, Luichiny Be Dazzled Gold Glitter and Lucite Floating Bow Heels, Pearl-fectionist Layered Pearl Necklace, You’re Two Kind Gold Ring, and the Claim to Femme Blush Pink Purse, topped off with a burgundy lip!

 

What is your go-to holiday cocktail?

I’m a Bellini girl!

 

What is on your holiday wishlist this year?

A Fujifilm INSTAX Share Printer (that prints pictures from your iPhone instantly), jewelry,  and an Exhale Spa and Soul Cycle membership (still trying to get motivated to hit the gym)!

 

How do you hope to ring in the New Year? Any resolutions?

I really hope to ring it in with my husband, Harold, in NYC; I rarely get to see him because of my job.  My resolution is to spend more time with my family, to work out more frequently, and to focus on technology.

 

CelebrityHilary Duff for Elle Canada December 2014

Hilary Duff is back, ladies and gents, and looking more fabulous than ever. She’s got a new album on the horizon, a TV show in the works, and she’s pretty much mother of the year! The former Disney star, our beloved Lizzie McGuire, opened up about motherhood (her son is just too cute), marriage, and that awkward Aaron Carter statement in the December issue of Elle Canada, and we were so taken by her maturity and honesty. Wearing furs and sequins, too-die-for thigh-high boots, and that fabulously-feathered hat, Duff is demure and stunning. If you didn’t love her before, well, you definitely do now.

FashionSteal Her Style: Beyoncé

Beyoncé

Queen Bey has outdone herself yet again with a jaw-dropping sequin number that we can’t help but feel is just SO party perfect! Don’t you agree?! The high rounded neck, and short sleeves keeps this look red carpet-classy, while the mini hem and chunky heel choice perfectly show off her toned stems! Recreate your own #flawless Beyoncé inspired look with one of our many sequin stunners. We love the low back of the Lovers + Friends Envy Sequin Dress, the bold sparkle of the Dress the Population Tabitha Sequin Dress, and the classic bodycon shape of the Into the Stardust Sequin Dress!
