Looking away from the newsstand may bring out the best in you and the worse in the newsstand in question. Esquire Magazine has gone out and proclaimed Penelope Cruz as the Sexiest Woman Alive.
When did that happen? How? Let’s see Esquire’s standards for crowning this Spanish actress with their highest honors! By dictionary definitions, sexy implies that the person with that attribute is provocative, tempting, interesting, stimulating, passionate, intriguing and so on. However, modern times have plastered the sexy label on a number of things that aren’t humans – cars, shoes, bags, and so on.
Basically, sexy has become the verbal cliché for people trying hard to sound interesting. The word’s essence has diluted so much that is almost no impact at all – middle schoolers generously flatter each-other with that word!

You think you know Pharrell just because you know Happy? Read these lines and think again! Pharrell has been producing, writing, composing, singing music and got involved into so many side projects that he’s totally entitled to write lines like ‘My life is so amazing, I don’t know how it got this way’ (Pretty Girls).
Pharrell’s genius doesn’t lie in ‘Happy’. Or in his music alone. While the aforementioned single sold in more than 10 million copies wordlwide, Pharrell continued to sign more projects in his name. Like this Adidas collection: jackets and sneakers with Pharrell Williams’ name on the three-striped label!

Come November 2014, you will be able to buy pieces designed by Alexander Wang in selected H&M stores worldwide. Who is Wang and why is he so fashion-relevant as to queue up in front of your nearest H&M door in a month from now?
At just 30, Alexander Wang, although a famous dropout of Parsons after just two years, he took New York Fashion Week’s catwalks by storm with his first collection in 2007 while in 2013 he was dressing the United States of America’s First Lady for the Inauguration Ball! He designs for his namesake brand (and an additional, more affordable, casual label T by Alexander Wang) and the Balenciaga house since 2012. Impressive curriculum so far! Statistically, he’s the youngest guest-designer in H&M’s history of collaborations, thus relatively unknown for the wider audiences.

Not long ago, we mentioned a handful of tattoos everyone should try by the end of summer. And ‘try’ is a good word since they were temporary tattoos in the form of decals. A pretty smart options for those who don’t feel committed to a lifetime skin mark.
Now we get serious with fabulous feminine tattoos – a far cry from the usual black-to-blue monocolored skin-deep symbols or drawings we’re used to commonly refer to as ‘permanent ink’. Do you remember playing with watercolors when you were kids? Well, this is the grown-up version of the watercolors game!

You’ve been searching high and low for good fall shoes for your young, active ones? The Maze Runner, the first chapter from a series of books adapted into movies can be the very answer to your torments. Young characters, simple wardrobe, role models perfect for a ready to follow audience!
The movie’s costumes department worked under Christine Bieselin Clark and Simonetta Mariano who were previous engaged in projects such as 300 or Riddick to name just a few. Clearly used with the action genre, the costume and wardrobe team put together a special set of clothing for the young actors that would be best described as ‘uniforms’, finished with Palladium boots (tongue-in-cheek as the name ‘Palladium’ itself represents a protective symbol).

The moment we’ve all been waiting for: Gemma Ward is back on the catwalk! This is the most spectacular, significant news from this season’s Fashion Weeks (which are now to their third installment, Milan, after New York and London).
Speculations have been heard and written, about the Australian model’s comeback, but when her daughter (Naia) was born, everyone suspected Gemma would definitely keep the runway far and the nappies close. We couldn’t be more wrong as September 18 2014 is a day that will go down in Fashion History as the day Gemma Ward came back in fashion!
