Clement Chabernaud & Aymeline Valade for Vogue Paris

I miss Paris everyday, there really is no city like it. Vogue Paris's Emanuelle Alt styled two of my favorite Parisians Clement Chabernaud and Aymeline Valade in an editorial titled, Paris Mon Amour, and the two look absolutely divine. With looks from Chanel, Ralph Lauren, Diesel Black Gold, Salvatore Ferregamo, and Oscar De La Renta, the two definitely illustrate the many moments of love while frolicking around the city of lights. Ugh, bring me back! J'adore Paris, mais j'aime trop de New York!

Kenzo x Vans part deux

I seriously missed out on these the first time and totally regretted it. I walked into OC on Howard a few weeks ago and the guy told me that they had sold out on the 2nd day. -__-" So, when Kenzo announced that they were rereleasing the collaboration with Vans again mid August in new prints, I was ecstatic. Best believe I won't miss out on these guys! I really like the Yellow and Navy floral print. What do you guys think?

Obsession: Rebel Wilson

Pitch Perfect
Actress/Com├ędienne extraordinaire, Rebel Wilson first caught people's attention in her first breakout role in the hilarious film, Bridesmaids, and it seems like she's not stopping there. She's got back to back films being released this year, and I cannot wait to see a lot of them. From Perfect Pitch to Bachelorettes, Rebel is definitely the new Melissa McCarthy. I seriously have watched these trailers 327598269 times, she's so funny!

Mila Kunis for Interview Magazine August 2012

Mila's got a lot going for her these days, she continues to be the face for Dior, stars in the new Wizard of Oz adaptation, and covers Interview's latest August Issue looking all oiled up and sexy. I just saw Ted last night and while the movie was so so, I was amazed by Mila's beauty (let's be real, Mark Wahlberg's body also caught my attention). While this editorial looks a bit meeh, girlfriend does look good to me.

River Viiperi for And Men Magazine

I've literally become obsessed with Soul Artist model, River Viiperi. I really don't know what it is, I mean, he is good looking don't get me wrong. Maybe it's the fact that I feel closer to him, because I follow him on instagram? LOL Either way, he's one talented model and he seems like such a sweet heart. I've always dubbed him as a commercial type model because of his ads with Versace, American Eagle, Macys, and a few others, but judging from these photos, he's quite a chameleon. Yummy. ;)

A Conversation: How Street Style Blogs Affect Retail and Design

I can't believe I missed this! I found this awesome presentation/conversation with All The Pretty Birds blogger, Tamu McPherson, Style Director of Elle Magazine, Kate Lanphear, Senior Fashion Market Editor of Harper's Bazaar, Joanne Hillman, and Features/Special Projects Director of Harper's Bazaar, Laura Brown, and I found it so refreshingly interesting and quite relatable. For all us fashion lovers and bloggers, I highly recommend watching this. Kate always shuts it down, doesn't she look fab in The Row?

Backstage: Givenchy Menswear SS 13

I'm always excited to see what kind of facial jewelry Ricardo incorporates into his next collection for the house of Givenchy, and like his FW 12 collection, he did not disappoint. How interesting is that nose jewel sitting on the nose bridge of the models? I liked the religious motifs incorporated into the SS 13 season with the color palette ranging from pale pinks to classic whites, blacks and reds. The runway was clean and fresh, complimenting the strong ensembles and looks of the collection. I think it's also fantastic that the designer incorporated females models (like Saskia De Brauw and supermodel, Stella Tennant) into his menswear shows like he has done in recent shows prior.

The Coveteur: Whitney Port

Whitney_Port-031-full Whitney_Port-001-full
Since her time on MTV's The Hills and The City, Whit has always been my fav! Her personality and her style go hand in hand, fun, flirty, funky, and cool. Let's take some time to be uber jells of her amazeballs closet. Talk about shoes galore, she has got everything from Manolo, Louboutin, Chanel, Balenciaga to converse and Dr.Martens. I love how eclectic her taste is from colors and prints to textures and fabrics. I'm personally a little to scared to mix and match, but clearly it works for her. Besides her amazing wardrobe, she sure does have beautiful furniture.

Emma Stone for Vogue UK

As you can tell, I've become obsessed with all and everything Emma Stone. After nabbing the July cover of American Vogue, the actress has found herself the cover girl for the magazine's British version. And once again, she nails it. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

Hermes // Running the helm of Hermes, creative director, Veronique Nichan­ian gave one hell of a punch of ultimate luxury when it came to the fashion houses's SS 13 season. While the collection was colorfully laid back, the cuts and fabrics were nothing shy of chic from crocs to leathers. How amazeball is that croc embossed black tee?! So prettttttttyyy. View the full collection here.

Kenzo // KENZO KENZO KENZO! I'm still obsessed with Humberto and Carol and of course, their latest collection for Kenzo. Taking on back to Kenzo's jungle, the designers take us on a Eastern Asia safari playing with layers, colors, and embellishments. I enjoyed the play on shapes and volume from the wide baggy shorts, slouchy pants, to the slim and refined trousers. I need a KENZO sweater, don't you?! View the full collection here.

Dries Van Noten // I love camouflage and lately I've had an affinity with neon orange and mixing it with navy and the print, so I was ecstatic when I saw the combination open up Dries' SS 13 collection. Modern, relaxed, cool chic, and classic DVN, what's not to love. View the full collection here.

Junya Watanabe // LOVED this show from start to end. The perfect suit with pretty much....suits me. I loved the variation of pant and short suits ranging from classic navy, khaki, and classic Watanabe plaid. I also enjoyed the pairing of the striped tees with the suits to downplay the outfits, making them ensembles casually chic. Clearly it's all about the sneaker next spring! I'm excited!!

Balmain // I'm not really a fan of Balmain, but I will admit that since Olivier's success, I've been keeping a close on the house's collection. His results for the fashion house's SS 13 season, was pretty much everything I imagine him wearing, but is that bad? NO. I loved the rock roll ease and chicness of the collection. These days, who doesn't want to look cool. Surely a Balmain double breasted coat and some skinnies will do, but seriously? How major are the total looks from this collection? From the coats, jackets, to the pants and shoes. GIMMIE GIMMIE GIMMIE! View the full collection here.
