Vogue is a pioneer in more ways than one. This time, it’s beyond fashion as we’d expect it with Conde Nast moving to their One World Trade Center Headquarters. A groundbreaking decision which could amp up the commercial value of the 104-stories building lacking serious renting appeal due to its Twin Towers proximity karma.
We’re setting everything aside, focusing on Vogue’s new digs, particularly on Anna Wintour’s office. She is, after all, a woman of extraordinary fashion influence, who else is better for a home fashion inspiration moment? Starting with:

When you’re going to see a Nolan movie, the least expected detail you’re likely to notice is something fashion-related. Especially when the said flick is titled ‘Interstellar’ and you’re crying for half of the 3 hours-long projection!
However, when you’ll hear that the costumes for Interstellar were supervised by Mary Zophres who was also responsible for Big Lebowski, Fargo, True Grit, Catch me if you can or Iron Man 2, your interest might take an unexpected twist! We’re talking iconic movies, thus fashion plays a defining role for the portrayal and remembrance of characters & overall atmosphere! What do you remember from Interstellar’s costumes?

Halfway through November most of us already know how the end of the year is going to look like! On the slopes, under the discoball lights or in the cold streets watching the fireworks, pretty much everyone wants to kick off the new year in style!
How is fashion helping us? With ideas and hints about the style and trends, the overall atmosphere you should be adopting for a successful Winter season festive season! Starting with Topshop’s Holiday 2014 campaign fronted by Cara Delevingne.The picture of fun and playfulness, Cara shows her too-cool-to-party face in the latest advertising campaign for UK’s giant fashion retailer Topshop as photographed by Alasdair McLellan.

For years, the fashion world has us all daydreaming about Hunter boots. For those who went beyond that blind spot and came to really understand the truth about the ‘legendary’ Hunter wellies, it’s time we all moved on and dream about… the new Hunter boots!
Also, if you really want to buy a pair of ankle boots this season, make it a lace-up with stiletto heels and no platforms whatsoever! These beauties right here deserve every praise and every passionate applause for they are not only stylish, beautiful and really versatile, but they’re also far from being mainstream, haute, pretentious money making machines.

In a world where we wouldn’t all first judge on appearance, this headline (and following story) wouldn’t have been possible. However, trying to bend the rules demands a swift play and twist on the rules. Today we look beyond covers and ad campaigns. Let’s go to the source of Kerry Washington’s new Allure cover and Karlie Kloss’s Nike advertorial.
Allure November 2014 has a special cover girl: Kerry Washington. Known (lately) as Olivia Pope in her new TV hit show Scandal, Kerry is one of today’s most appreciated actresses, thus a potential role model. Bringing her on a magazine cover with the ‘no-makeup’ label has a heavy impact on the audience. Makeup and photo-retouching have been around in fashion and beauty for longer than we remember, so it’s always major to have someone breaching that ground rule.

Granted, we may not have a six-page pictorial in Vogue magazine like Karlie did, but a change of hairdo makes for many Vogue pages in our day-to-day lives as we end up feeling like a star (in the best hair case scenario) or like a rebel (when our hair is fighting the cut).
Today we learn that two of the world’s most appreciated models have changed their hairdo and we’re now left with the inevitable dilemma: ‘to change or not to change, that is the question!’. Hopefully the following lines will help you get a clearer perspective on the hair matter before the Holidays festive season!

It’s time for the Weekend Fashion Story! The piece you’re about to read contains personal opinions from personal experience, thus making it a very authentic approach to style and fashion.
We’ve all heard, time and time again, that fashion is what you wear and style is how you wear it. And that a unique personality defines that unique personal style. But – guess what? We’re all unique! So all our style is our own, unique expression of fashion. Make it natural and authentic, that’s what I always think it’s best!
Naomi Campbell Without Makeup Will Leave You Speechless! 14 Stars Join Unicef’s Wakeupcall Challenge
November 1st, 2014 by kpriss
When the ice bucket challenge hit the world, there was hardly any way to go around it. More or less cubes, everyone was getting their fair share of cold water in the name of charity and raising awareness.
Now there’s another movement, less icy, less honest. The ‘Wake Up Call’ challenge demands a makeup-free shot posted on the social media account. Not just any makeup-free, though, the very first after waking up in the morning! All that to raise awareness & donations for Syria and the Syrian Children (through Unicef). People get to nominate three others, just like in the ice bucket challenge. All sounds lovely and very fashion-y, but wait until you see Naomi Campbell!
