Rihanna was awarded with the 2014 Fashion Icon distinction by the Council of Fashion Designers of America.

She holds the cover of Jalouse France June/July 2014 and Harper’s Bazaar Arabia July 2014. Fast-forwarding to fall, Linda Evangelista covers Vogue Japan September 2014!

Like a downplay of the colorful infusion of the FIFA World Cup 2014 which takes place in beautiful Brazil, the classic timeless quality of the world’s most prestigious and longstanding tennis championships, Wimbledon is ongoing in England as we write these lines.
Since 1877, the London grass has seen all and every tennis stars the world had offered and one of the main particularities of this tournament is the all-white clothing for the athletes playing at Wimbledon. The ball boys and girls and the officials are currently wearing cream and blue uniforms from Ralph Lauren, a contract with the designer’s Polo Ralph Laurent label that will end in 2015. Honoring that Wimbledon tradition, here are 14 all-white dresses for your summer consideration (if you’re having doubts, just look at how many celebrities and fashion people chose to wear white in the last couple of days!)

Owning a New York apartment seems like the norm if you can afford it. And Gisele Bundchen, world’s highest paid supermodel and her husband, NFL’s 10th highest paid athlete make the world’s highest paid couple (unlikely, yet true).
Their much buzzed-about mansion in Boston was acquired for $40Million by Dr Dre, days after he inked a $3Billion deal with Apple (selling his ‘beats by Dre’ headphones & more label). Why did they give up the Mansion of their Dreams they spent 4 years in building? Because they plan to make Massachusetts their headquarters from now on (scroll down if you want to see how their upcoming residence looks like on paper). Back to New York and the $14Million apartment Gisele & Tom have in the One Madison building!

Do you make your living as a vlogger (video-blogger)? Then Google Glass might smooth things out for you! DIY-ers, journalists, athletes and explorers might benefit from this revolutionary gadget proposed by Google.
But since Diane von Furstenberg is backing up the tech project, we asked ourselves repeatedly if fashion can do without the $1,800 eyewear! Can it? It can be wonderful for documenting and interacting, but how beneficial would it be for the general and individual privacy of each and all of us? Fashion doesn’t really need privacy and an over-expensive item such as the Google Glass might be the new range of fashion cool we didn’t see coming! Diane von Furstenberg is not only backing the idea, but also making a series of designs for the Google Glass.

The US Vogue had everyone talking about their July 2014 issue! And rightfully so since it has Lupita Nyong’o on the cover! The absolute sensation of this year’s Academy Awards, Lupita made her breakthrough in the very emotional movie ’12 Years a Slave’ for which she has received numerous nominations and awards.

Weddings are always different but oddly identical in their true essence. What can really be done differently? The place, the colors, the arrangements, the theme, the dress! Oh, the dress! One of the most exciting and agonizing moments in a wedding’s road to reality, the wedding gown is one of the most interesting and contradictory items.
Many brides want to keep their wedding low-key and discrete while a large number of future brides really want to look like princesses that ‘big day’. Get it? The Big day – the big dress? (I started this story with a brief infographic about the mythical white wedding dress, I hope you enjoy it!)

Take a moment and think about what you’re after when you’re buying a hair product which reads ‘Beach Waves’. Because Kirsten Dunst is proposing an entire package through L’Oreal’s latest ad campaign.
Super tanned, super luscious, super curved, beautiful Kirsten Dunst appeared to have gained a few extra inches of hair over night (not to mention the tousled waves). Since she’s been named the first spokesperson for L’Oreal Professionel, this is Kirsten’s second campaign for the cosmetics giant and although she’s been appointed in her new mission for who she is, the marketing team behind her campaigns is keen on transforming her into someone else…

One of the most anticipated movies of 2014, Maleficent delivered beyond the expectations both at the box-office level and in the viewers’ hearts (out of the $170Millions used to make the movie, $70Millions were recovered in the very first weekend in theaters).
Once more, Angelina Jolie proves not only that she can take a motion picture beyond its wildest cashing in points but also that she can really act. She has her own commercial appeal, abundantly seasoned with action and thoroughly dipped in a love-hate indecisive blend. Maleficent is a very visual mix. And Angelina is a huge (successful) part of that.
