What ties Ozzy Osbourne to basketball? A pair of Converse sneakers, of course! Mark your calendars for this is the year when Converse is selling an epic edition of All Stars sneakers: Black Sabbath Converse!
When I think of Black Sabbath, the image of Ozzy Osbourne, the high-heeled Prince of Darkness pops in my mind! I actually had troubles relating that to the flat soled sneakers… But did you know that this is the second collaboration between the Nike-owned footwear company and the legendary heavy metal band Black Sabbath?

For two days, Disney got us all wondering how their new Dream Portrait looks like! With Jessica Chastain as the Brave Scottish redhead Princess, it was all really promising!
This very morning, Annie Leibovitz’s vision of Jessica Chastain as Merida from Disney/Pixar’s 2012 movie, Brave, was released on the Internet for the world wide audience to love and buzz about! And it really took me by surprise because although I like and admire Jessica, I wasn’t too pleased with her in her new Disney role!

I’ve been on a fashion magazines hiatus for too long as now I’m trying to make up for the lack of covers and advertising pictorials talk with yet another story revolving around the printed glam press.
This time I’m keen on showing that real women can be cover or marketing materials just as well (or even better) than professional models can. Of course, as far as fashion is concerned, ‘real’ translates with silver screen most of the times! Especially when the 2014 Awards Season is officially started (the 2014 People’s Choice Awards just happened – back to that later, though!)

Perusing through magazine pictorials, my eyes were distraught with yet another fashion magazine’s spread. It felt strangely familiar!
So I decided I’d subject my comparison to you, perhaps trigger your comparative analysis and get you feelings on the matter as well. Long introduction short: here’s Nadeja Savcova, a model photographed by Xavi Gordo for Elle Spain January 2014. Doesn’t it remind you of Daria Werbovy’s H&M winter 2012 ad campaign? A little? Too much? (click through for even more images!)

Going through the latest editorials, I was surprised to see Julia Restoin Roitfeld’s retro charm in the latest issue of Glamour UK! At a closer inspection, though, the model in question proved to be a lookalike!
Estelle Yves is her name, she’s a French model, just like Julia, except she’s 20. 13 years younger than Carine Roitfeld’s daughter and for the last 3 years she kept climbing the fashion ladder.

Among the many glamorous things I did to celebrate the arrival of new year (Happy New Year everyone!), liking and following on Instagram a considerable number of designers and models was one of the funniest.
And most interesting, as from my chair, drowned in the infinite perspective offered by my old, trusted smartphone via the interwebs, I came to find out, in real time, what some of the most famous fashpeople were doing for New Year’s and after! As I hope everyone is ready for the first Monday of 2014, here’s what some of the models and the designers active on Instagram were doing this weekend:
Gisele Bundchen’s family home paradise
I’m starting with perfect Gisele because her Sunday was more or less like mine. Except our kids are significantly older and we have our handsful (count 4 kiddos and a dog, unlike Gisele and Tom’s two kiddos and a dog).

As today everyone is getting ready to party and welcome the New Year with glitz, glam and lots of fun, I’d like to wish you all to have a joyful, wonderful celebration!
We’re growing stronger, smarter and kinder each year and 2013 was no different! And regardless of how hard 2013 may have been, the only thing on my mind is that 2014 will be better. More inspired and creative, more loving, loveful and accomplishing!
My New Year’s Resolutions? I want to be better. Each day. I want to be more helpful. Every day. I want to be closer, more positive and essentially wiser. Each and every day! Regardless of your resolutions, be joyful, have faith and keep strong! It will happen! Just like the New Year is happening! May 2014 be everything you hope and wish for and more! (Patrick Canler brilliantly captured the sparkling effervescence of fireworks)

Just a couple of days left to steal inspiration and ideas for the big party between the years! New Year’s Eve is closing in, and it’s closing in sooooo fast! What will you be wearing? How about the shoes? the nails? The eyes?
I’m particularly minimalistic about makeup (for someone who has a passion for fashion – wink) but I do pay extra attention to my eyes! Whenever I wear makeup (or extra special makeup), it’s all about the eyes.
