Tony Ward for Selected Fall 2011

I really cannot wait for the fall season. Along with fall comes the layering, heavy coats, rain boots, hot cocoa, and the holidays. It's practically my favorite season of the year. Selected's fall campaign, which features the scrumptious Tony Ward, reminds me how chic and effortless a blazer+rocker/vintage tee+jeans can look or a khaki trench (which i still need to get)+a plain white tee+jeans can look. Selected is all about easy going looks, which they do well with their separates. I think the last photo of Tony wearing denim on denim is so badass, I need to grow some balls and try that look out. And may I ask, where has Irina Lazareanu been?

Kellan Lutz & Anne Vyalitsyna for Abbot + Main FW11

Ummm, if you knew me and/or follow my blog, you know Kellan Lutz is my baby daddy. Here he is posing along side Victoria Secret model, Anne Vyalitsyna (also current gf to Maroon 5's lead singer, Adam Levine) for Abbot + Main's Fall/Winter 2011 collection. Lutz also had the opportunity to collaborate on the FW 11 denim collection, which is pretty interesting given that I never thought of him as a fashion type person, then again we have Justin Timberlake and his denim line, William Rast. I guess it's cool with me. Especially if he gets to pose in his own ad's...shirtless. =)

Freida Pinto for Interview August 2011

I remember seeing Frieda's cover for Interview magazine, and I remember telling myself that I had to keep a look out, because I had a feeling the editorial was going to be bananas; and it is. In a weird way she kind of reminds me of Cheryl Cole in these photos, but they're absolutely stunning nonetheless. She can definitely work it and give us good face, and judging from the editorial, it seems more of a beauty shoot than fashion.

R.I.P Amy Winehouse

“She is a beautiful, gifted artist. And I very much like her hairdo. I took it as an inspiration. Because, in fact, it was also Brigitte Bardot’s hairdo in the late Fifties and Sixties. And now Amy has made it her own style. So, when I saw her, I knew it was the right moment. Amy… she is the new Brigitte.”
- Karl Lagerfeld

After breaking news this morning reporting Amy Winehouse's death, I was a bit unsure about how I felt. I wasn't too sure if I felt surprised or not of her death given her past, but what I did feel was complete sadness; that a true talent like herself, was not able to rise and make her comeback despite all her troubles. Out of all the concerts i've been too, I am sad to say that I wasn't able to see her perform. These videos of her performing some of my favorites songs from her Back To Black album, showcase how truly gifted she was. Besides her music, she surprisingly impacted the fashion world by inspiring many high fashion editorials such as Vogue Paris and Numero. Plus, who could forget the bee-hives that walked Karl Lagerfeld's CHANEL collection at the Pre-Fall 2008 show? You will truly be missed, Amy. Rest In Paradise.

Jamming To...

Adele ft. Kanye West - Melt My Heart to Stone. LOVE Adele, and I also love Kanye West. So hearing this remix was like heaven to my ears. I never imagined what it would be like to hear the two of them on the same record, but it's complete awesomeness. I would love to hear more of them...together.

Armin Van Buuren ft. Nadia Ali - Feels So Good. This Armin Van Buuren feautring Nadia Ali song has a bit of a 90's feel to it, but I love it. It was on repeat for me a few days ago and so far I haven't gotten tired of it. I also like how I can hear this beat that's awfully similar, if not the same beat as The XX's crystalized song. Do you hear that too or is it only me? Either way, I love this song.

Jay Z & Kanye West - Otis. Jay Z & Kanye's album, Watch The Throne, needs to come out already. The recently leaked record titled, Otis, is cleverly catchy from it's beat to it's lyrics. I'm dying to here what the rest of the album sounds like, especially those tracks that feature Beyonce and Frank Ocean.

Timothy Bloom ft. V. Bozeman - Till The End of Time. I love a good sex song and for awhile, I've been listening to The Weeknd (and still do), but Timothy Bloom's Till The End of Time is super sexy and a perfect song to smoosh too (I apologize for the Jersey Shore vocabulary). The song also features the incredibly talented V. Bozeman. I highly recommend watching their slightly NSFW video to the song. It'll def put you in the mood. ;)

Vacation: Lake Tahoe

I'm in desperate need of a vacation with my BFF's. The last time I got to see a majority of them was in June during my grad party, but for some reason I have this urge to be with them. I think this whole "living away from home to work," is making me miss home a bit, but I guess that goes with the territory of having a really good job. One of my BFF's is planning her 23rd birthday and she's narrowed her decisions to either Lake Tahoe or Los Angeles. From Lulu's photos of her recent vacay, I've obviously chosen which place I'd like her to chose. I haven't been to Tahoe at all this year, and my family snowboards every winter season, so I'm itching to visit the lake during it's summer season. I've heard a ton about Emerald Bay, and the photos of Lulu's friend's jumping off the cliff's into the water looks like so much fun! I NEED TO GO TO TAHOE STAT. tahoecolelulu1

Kings of Milan

Director and photographer, Luca Finotti shot some of my favorite male models including Sebastian, Sam, Francisco, Paolo, and Max. Fresh from the Milan shows this past season, Finotti shot my fav's doing what they do best, "raising your temperature while looking sultry in next to nothing." Can you see why they are some of my favs?
Sebastian Suave in my opinion is the new and younger version of Adam Senn. Those eyes, those lips, that glare... definitely makes me weak in the knees.
I don't like Orlando Bloom, but for some reason Sam Webb reminds me of him. I love his signature goatee. The British model is currently the face of many ad campaigns including Seven for All Man Kind and Dolce & Gabbana. You know you're hot when you're the face of Dolce & Gabbana.
Out of this whole group, I've probably grown the most addicted to Francisco Lachowski. He's practically the Joseph Gordon-Levitt of modeling. He's super cute, but I don't know his youthful qualities are what makes him attractive or makes me a pedophile. The twenty year-old Brazilian is currently signed with Ford Models and for good reason; He's practically everywhere!! There's even a tumblr dedicated to him... but can you blame us for being so addicted?
The blonde curly haired Brazilian (I officially want to be reincarnated as a Brazilian supermodel in my next life) that is Max Motta is just another one of my many male model crushes. Despite the fact that's he's practically nude in my Vogue magazines in his ad campaigns for Tom Ford's new scent, Neroli Portofino, he's slowly becoming a rising super model. What other male model has incredible blonde jerry-curl like hair like his?!
I may be a bit biased with Paolo Roldan because he's practically the only FIlipino male model that has made it big in the fashion industry. The fact that he's also one of Ricardo Tisci's muses for Givenchy makes me even more of a fan, because Ricardo alway's picks out the most sexy, exotic, yet strikingly different models to pose and walk his shows.

Givenchy Spring 2012 Mens Collection

I've been meaning to post how awesome and how much I am in love with Givenchy's mens collection for spring summer 2012. Givenchy's creative director and one of my personal favorite designers, Ricardo Tisci was inspired by his recent trip to Rio when designing the ss pieces, which translated into a more tropical exoticism collection. The tropically abstract print (a completely different print than his Fall collection) had me yearning for more. The numbers that paraded down the runway included a wide range of impeccably sharp separates such as sweaters, skirts, paints, suits, button ups, and more, all exploding with that incredible tropical print. And I think it's fair to say that a Givenchy mens collection fashion show always includes the hottest, most exotic male models, which coincidently matches how hot the collections always are.

Emma Stone at the ‘Friends with Benefits’ Premiere

Gahhh this girl is on fire!! Actress Emma Stone showed up to the New York premiere of Friends with Benefits rocking a Giambattista Valli Fall 2011 dress. And might I add, j'adore!! Despite the fact that she's unpredictable when it comes to her red carpet looks, whatever they may be, she always seems to get it right, which is WHY I LOVE HER. The 22 year old manages to surprise everyone no matter what red carpet event she's at by making unexpected yet well executed outfits. LOVE. I cannot wait to see her in her new movie with hunk, Ryan Gosling as her love interest.

Ryan: "Will you ask me something personal about my life?" Emma: "Hmmm, k fine. I'll do it, then we bang."
Ryan: "YES!"

Anja Rubik & Sasha Knezevic Wedding

There has been a ton of weddings recently; we had Kate & Jamie and the Royals, William and his Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine Middleton. Between Anja, Kate, and Kate #2, Anja's custom Emilio Pucci wedding gown designed by friend and creative director of Pucci, Peter Dundas, was the most sexy. With legs like Anjas', your obligated to show them off and she did with her much shorter version of the traditional wedding dress. Her ensemble for the big day included a large train and a long veil to match. The supermodel couple wed over this past weekend at a church in Deia on the Spanish island of Mallorca. I've always loved Sasha and Anja together and am incredibly happy for the two since they've been dating for years. I've been a huge fan of theirs and blog about them religiously, because I love them so much. They're definitely a match made in heaven.

Angelina Jolie's Journey to Cambodia for Louis Vuitton

I thought this video Angelina Jolie did for Louis Vuitton's "Core Values" about her journey to Cambodia was remarkably enlightening. I enjoyed the "A Journey..." annotations throughout the video and found them insightful. I really would like to experience what it's like to be part of a 3rd world country and understand their journey of life..
The "Core Values" ads are set to run for 18 months and will feature other celeb-humanitarians such as Bono. According to the Huffington Post, the logo tote slung over Jolie's arm, Louis Vuitton's Alto bag, is a discontinued style. But Vuitton's executive vice president Pietro Beccari told WWD, "We are considering to re-edit it." Smart move. From the looks of it, it seems like the actress sure does love her Alto bag.

Leigh Lezark

I don't know what it is about this pale skinned, black haired, New Jersey beauty, but she definitely got me infatuated. Leigh Lezark, (ex?) CHANEL Brand Ambassador and infamous DJ definitely knows how to dress for a runway show. I love her in her Giambattista Valli feathered frocks. I remember researching her and trying to figure out who she was when I first stumbled on her photo from Scott's blog. Despite her numerous cameos on the ever so popular, Who What Wear, Lezark is well known as a member of her band, The Misshapes and creating music for various runway shows including: CHANEL, Calvin Klein, LAMB, House of Holland, and manyy manyy more. Aren't those cheek bones incredible?
