CelebrityStyle File: 2014 MTV Movie Awards!

The MTV Movie Awards are always a riot that turns Hollywood on its ear with outlandish surprises and non-stop laughs, and this year was no different! Conan O’ Brien was our fearless leader for the evening, and the stars were pulling out all the stops (Zac Efron’s shirtless salute, anyone?)! And while the red carpet may not have been studded with the fanciest of gowns, our favorite starlets kept it fun and fabulous!

Rita Ora and Nicki Minaj captured the most elegant of looks in their floor-length, demure black gowns. Rita wore a plunging Barbara Casasola, while Nicki donned a fabulous Alexander McQueen!

Oh, Ellie! This stunning songstress looked like a dream in her flowing, cut-out, ivory dress!

minis

The mini was made fabulous by the lovely Shailene Woodley and Victoria Justice! Shailene wore an olive leather Balmain dress, and Victoria was pretty in a purple Atelier Versace!

We are OBSESSED with Jessica Alba’s too-cute separates on the red carpet! In a white bustier top and perfect yellow skirt, with a side-swept ‘do, she was ridiculously adorable!

These two wore patterns and prints right last night! Leslie Mann wore a polka-dot, asymmetrical Juan Carlos Obando, while Chrissy Teigen wore a baby pink Ulyana Sergeenko with a subtle bird pattern!

Our best dressed for the night? Lupita Nyong’o! Because, really, she is perfection in Chanel! The colors are bold, the shape is unique, and we are sure no one else could have pulled this off quite like our girl! A+, babe!

FashionBest of Pre-Fall 2012

Okay, so if you didn’t know, we just finished the pre-fall season for 2012. Below I  highlighted my 10 favorite collections from the pre-fall season, in no particular order. You can agree with me or not, it’s okay, it’s what make the world turn, you know? You can always comment with your thoughts (wink wink, nudge nudge). 
 




 


 

 



 
*So Chanel would totally make this list (it was one of my fav shows) but we already did a blog on it. So, don’t freak out, k?

FashionEast Meets West: Chanel Pre-Fall Collection 2012

With the release of Chanel’s Pre-Fall Collection for 2012, it seems that creative director, Karl Lagerfield, has developed a taste for Indian. Gilded tunics, sumptuous silks, and skinny British Empire leggings melted into slim booties and embellished sandals. Hair jewels, thong-like bracelets and printed fingerless gloves compiled a list of characteristically Indian adornment, while Chanel classics like tweed suits and pearls exported the looks to their Parisian home front.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

CelebrityLove It or Hate It: Blake Lively As the New Face of Chanel Mademoiselle Handbags

  
 
 Move over, Lily Allen: Blake Lively is upping the ante as the new face of Chanel’s Mademoiselle handbag line. 
 
Much darker and more serious than Lily Allen’s previous campaign, this shoot reveals an edgier side to the bleachy blonde persona we’re used to seeing from Miss Lively. It also brings a more pensive, alluring attitude to the bags than did the playful shoots of Lily Allen, shown below.
 
 
The Chanel brand has long been know as the epitome of timeless chic, and is also credited with the invention of the “Little Black Dress.” Simple, comfortable, and elegant are the staple designs that have made Chanel famous since Coco herself began designing in 1910.
 
  
 
Continuing in Ms. Chanel’s footsteps, the brand has been advertised by some truly beautiful actresses, athletes, and style icons, including Catherine Denevue, Estella Warren, Carole Bouquet, 
 
   
 
Nicole Kidman (who won the title of most money made per minute by an actor for this ad), Bar Refaeli,
 
   
 
Kate Moss, Kiera Knightly, Marilyn Monroe (who claimed that No.5 was her favorite thing to wear to bed!)
 
 
 
 Vanessa Paradis, and Claudia Schiffer.
Whew!
 
That’s a lot to live up to! 
 
Chanel pics from: herehere, and here.  
 
 
Here Blake is (above, wearing Chanel of course!) at a dinner celebrating her new ad campaign and (below) with Chanel photographer Karl Lagerfeld, and I can definitely see the makings of a Chanel girl. There is charm, elegance, beauty, and joy evident both in her demeanor and in her actions.
 
 
Yet I wonder: has she shed the traveling pants too recently to be in league with other Chanel icons, or does she have the makings of another true legend?
