FashionFashion Around the Globe: Shanghai Fashion Week

Shanghai was once known as the “Pearl of the Orient” and it is clear that the same holds true with their very talented designers. China’s most creative minds came together to show their Fall/Winter collections at Shanghai Fashion Week and did they ever impress! Let’s take a look at some of these rising fashion stars!
 Helen Lee
 
Retro cool was definitely the theme for Helen Lee with colorful knit pieces that were all about the pockets. The all over kaleidoscope print was surprisingly chic!
Zix Guan
Guan’s collection entitled “Killers” was inspired by the one and only Angelina Jolie and the power she exudes while still be sexy. Yeah, I’d say they achieved that! Loving the leather Victorian-inspired jackets!
Oasis
The ultra feminine shapes and colors on Oasis’ runway were all about girls just wanting to have fun wherever they go. We’re definitely going to need those print dresses in our closets ASAP.
EY
A mixture of hard leather and soft flowing fabrics were a treat for the eyes at EY. Who knew tie-dye could look so hot? 
Kong
What would a fashion week be without a truly extravagant show? Well, Kong gave us what we wanted with structured dresses straight out of a sci-fi movie that were still so beautiful without being gimmicky. A light up dress? What a bright idea!

CelebritySupermodel Crystal Renn Goes Blonde!

Crystal Renn has definitely achieved supermodel status and has easily become one of the most recognizeable faces in fashion. She also happens to be one of my favorite models, because she owns her look no matter what.
So, when this traditionally dark haired vixen recently bleached her locks, it was a shock. She looks very different, but her drastic change seems to be serving her well in this month’s issue of Schön magazine! Look at her work it!
While I love this change, I’m still very much in love with her dark locks. Here’s a just a sample of her photos during her pre-blonde years:
Are you digging Crystal Renn’s new ‘do?

FashionModel Pick of the Week: Night Brights

If you hadn’t noticed, one of favorite LuLu*s models, Olivia, is back after a semester in Spain. Meanwhile, we’ve been stocking up the cute party and cocktail dresses as usual. Olivia (above) and Wase (pictured below) both picked the Twice Enticed Black Dress as one of their favorite new items. Have you ever seen a neckline like that?!!
 
Our second pick from Olivia was this fantastic neon orange dress, which is a perfect example of all the cool brights we’ve been getting in lately. This one in particular is called the Glow with the Flow Neon Orange Dress and it glows even brighter in real life! 

FashionNoah Does Frida

 
This Frida Kahlo-inspired shoot shows off the young Dutch model, Noah Steenbruggen, like never before. Her darkened eyebrows add a new dimension to flashbulb-whitened skin, while the colorful frocks, fringe and floral crowns pop against a sensual Spanish backdrop. I’m in love with the carefree foreign style channeled to life by stylist Patrycja Juraszcyk and photographed by Anouk Nitsche.
 
 

FashionModel Pick of the Week: Utterly Irresistible Strapless Ivory Dress


Here at Lulus.com we love to let you in behind-the-scenes. This week I decided to talk to our lovely model, Alyssa, to find out her favorite new item. Naturally, Alyssa picked the Utterly Irresistible Strapless Dress. Besides the fact that the lace design is flattering and not over-the-top, Alyssa loves the snug fit and the strapless silhouette. Lookin’ good Alyssa!
