Penelope Cruz Designed For Loewe&Posed For The Fall 2013 Ad Campaign

When you’re famous it almost sounds easy to be a working mom, doesn’t it? Just look at Penelope Cruz (and her sister Monica Cruz): they’ve done so many things together, at least fashion-wise, and I can’t notice a single stress wrinkle on their face… As we speak, the two Cruz sisters joined their creative efforts to design a collection of bags for Loewe.

The fashion house’s Fall Winter 2013 2014 ad campaign features Penelope Cruz as photographed by Mert and Marcus, showcasing the said designs on the rooftop of the Casino de Madrid on a cloudy day. It’s all lovely and colorful, despite the gloomy skies as Penelope wears some bright accents (be it the leather gloves or the patterned coat) and I’m certain it will make for a very successful campaign.

Santana Black Magic Woman Gipsy Queen Oye Como Va Medley

Instant classic. We even have a kiddies guitar playing Oye Como Va. You can’t get more classic than that. When your music is so melodic and so recognizable that you can put it on a kiddies toy, you just reached the peak of recognition. And Santana is there for years, still going strong.

For this week, I thought about something epic. Something familiar yet always charming, always strong, always close to one’s heart. The Black Magic Woman/Gypsy Queen/Oye Como Va medley performed live by Carlos Santana in 1992 is just so epic, there’s so much music there that your feet would want to dance on their own!

What You Need For The Ultimate Girly Party!

You know me and my gadgety ways: once I get started, it’s hard to contain my curiosity for all things cute and lovely, girly and useful, smart and witty, helping us make every day prettier, more practical.

So here’s another one of those stylish gadgets I came across and thought a lovely Saturday would be a perfect day to share: the ‘Dapper Bottle Stopper’. It’s a bow, dahlings! A bow to cap your unfinished bottle and preserve all its goodies within until you find the perfect occasion to pop it open again!

Love Your Bag? Save Your Bag!

How do you keep your dear bags while driving around and doing errands? I happen to like to keep my bag close by, just in case I need anything from it – you never know, if you think of all that’s packed in?!

But even when it’s not scorching hot like it is right now, I still like to keep my car windows open – I admit, it bugs me because I like to play my music loud, but A/C bothers me more, so I choose to keep my windows open. But then comes the trick: if I like to keep my windows open, how do I secure my belongings? With the safety belt, duh! I put the safety belt on my bag! Because I care. Because I want to keep it. Save it from harm.

Scandal’s Kerry Washington In Vanity Fair August 2013

Kerry Washington is, undoubtedly a gorgeous woman. Her gentle eyes compliment her beautiful physical features and her acting success only comes to confirm her many qualities (Kerry is now the star of the new successful TV series ‘Scandal’).

However, seeing her pictorial from Vanity Fair’s August 2013 issue, although signed by the great Norman Jean Roy, got me thinking at how ridiculously gauche the media still is with black women. It’s like they’re walking on thin ice and trying to put the best foot forward and looking for the most delicate step. But lo and behold, the ice still cracks. Why? Because we’re too afraid. Because in our obsession for equality we’re juggling too much and we’re losing the naturalness, the coolness and the easiness.

Kerry Washington’s Vanity Fair had enormous potential. Instead we got a distorted perspective on Kerry’s body because of the pool water in the cover picture and…(hit the jump to read the rest!)

Minimal Wardrobe: Spring Summer 15 Looks With 13 Pieces

I may keep a low profile when it comes to my own personal style but I tried to pick as many evocative topics as to tell you about the minimalistic approach I preach and practice when it comes to my wardrobe or the entire Frizz household fashion. Less is more. You doubt it? I walked both ends of the wardrobe spectrum and came to the conclusion that my fashion and my personal style are way more creative and more inspired when I’m only juggling with basics.

Long story short: this is how you build a minimal wardrobe with just 13 pieces that you can switch back and forth in 15 looks. I’m certain that more is possible and that you have your own minimal mix so if you care to share, I’m all eyes! (I came across this on the vast and inspiring alleys of Pinterest and it was originally created by shopbop dot com)

Kate Upton From Vogue Brazil To Redemption Choppers Campaign

Kate Upton continues her ascension on the fashion’s ladder one Vogue cover at the time. After Anna Wintour named her the world’s hottest supermodel, Vogue Brazil put some nice clothes on the 21-year-old American model and announced the end of the skinny dictatorship.

Whether that will prove to be real, only time will tell. Crystal Renn tried to pull a similar stunt on the fashion industry a couple of years ago and instead of changing the standard fashion body, she changed her own body by dieting/exercising and losing weight again. Will Kate Upton succumb to the same pressure and diminish her voluptuous frame?
