Utilitarian Sandals (Birkenstock), The New Fashionable Sandals

Downscaling high fashion or upscaling regular wear? I will be drawing a general conclusion as to what we’re expecting from the Spring Summer 2014 season in terms of main trends and style directions. However, until then, I am, malgre moi, in a witch hunt on the New York Fashion Week’s catwalks.

What I am chasing after? Sandals. Why? Because I’m simply trying to determine who’s who and who’s replica is better when it comes to the new utilitarian sandals walking up and down the catwalks of the next season. Models should be happy as these sandals do offer comfort before anything. But are we? How will we know which are the utilitarian sandals we knew and loved and which are the haute fashion utilitarian sandals?

I signaled the appearance of such footwear in the Trina Turk Spring 2014 collection presentation. Here I am again, on a case study talking about the Edun Spring 2014 runway.

Top 3 Spring Summer Nails From The Spring Summer 2014 Fashion Week {Tutorials}

If you want to know what nail polish you need for your nails next spring and what nail art you have to wear, take notes! Part of the unexpected beauty of fashion is that you never know what to think and how to act. Its unpredictability is dictated by commercial reasons that are usually way above the fashion-loving crowd’s reach and understanding: do you remember when they tried to convince us that nail art was dead?

Lo and behold, the Spring Summer 2014 New York Fashion Week’s shows put on a gorgeous display of nail art we already love and wear. So if that’s what they say our nails should be wearing next year, I’m proud to announce all nails loving ladies out there that we’re oh-so-avantgarde! Let’s take a look at my NYFW nail selection so far and choose our avant-fashion nails with their respective nail tutorials!

{1} bright (BLUE) nails like the kind we’ve seen in the Whit Spring 2014 collection, the Peter Som Spring 2014 collection, the Veronica Beard Spring 2014 collection. Don’t be afraid to make your nails pop, ladies! Even it’s just for two weekend days or a quick getaway, make them nails shine bright with vivid neon colors in shades that hint at the beautiful ocean! (since I doubt you need any tutorial for solid color nails, I thought I’d leave this one out and focus on the following two – just hit the jump to see them!)

Prestige For Two: No Blurred Lines Between Thicke, Wife Paula Patton

If you have not danced to Robin Thicke and Pharrell hit song this summer, then you must have something against dancing. If you haven’t heard Blurred Lines on the radio or seen it on the TV this summer then you must be having something against turning on your radio or watching music on TV. Because Blurred Lines was everywhere this summer! And I mean literally everywhere!

Came fall, nothing really changed as Miley Cyrus chose to do Blurred Lines her own way at MTV’s Video Music Awards, setting everyone on fire about her behavior and Robin Thicke’s song (incidentally generating over 350k tweets per second). Again! So really, in all justice, it makes one ask about how Thicke’s wife is taking all this. But Paula Patton is pretty serene and supportive about her husband’s music/work. And here they are, doing their first magazine cover as a couple: Prestige.

2013 Woman Of The Year According To GQ: Emma Watson

Emma Watson and GQ happened before, but this time it’s different (sounds like a cliché, I’m aware of that, but a single look at Emma Watson’s new GQ October 2013 cover is enough to convince us that something may have changed…)

It may be only the stylist’s doing, but whatever the reason, I’m just thankful for this ‘Woman of the Year’ elegant and feminine pictorial in which Emma Watson is wearing looks from Jason Wu, Vionnet, Boss and Emilio Pucci.

(several covers are available for this special issue, among which Michael Douglas as GQ’s Legend of the Year, Arctic Monkeys and Tom Ford who was interviewed by David Walliams for the occasion)

3 Easy DIY Boots: Saint Laurent Grunge, Boho Cowboy, Balmain Chic

There’s no escape from it: the fall season is officially started and in just a matter of hours, we’ll be enjoying the debut of the new Fashion Week (dealing with the upcoming Spring season, but who’s looking at that? wink). I gathered and assembled for your creative inspiration 3 boots you can easily turn into DIY projects. Grunge boots, boho boots and fancy boots. As you well know, the main fashion trend of this year’s fall is grunge. Scratch your head and search your closet for anything and everything you used to wear in the 90s for lo and behold, it’s all coming back now, more fashionable than ever!

But as all reinventions come at a certain price, like these gorgeous Saint Laurent boots from the fall winter 2013 2014 collection that go around for $8,000. Pricey much? Totally agree. So if you haven’t yet located your former army boots, consider a visit to your nearest affordable fashion boutique for they’re surely stocking on some kind of flat laced boots and then start one of the DIY fashion projects:

Gisele Bundchen Releasing First Song With H&M

As you may remember it, Cara Delevingne is aiming at a musical career outside her fashion reign. With her latest dusty adventures, though, her fashion reign may as well be over – temporarily at least. Gisele Bundchen could very well claim back her crown and get the entire fashion population at her feet, in complete and utter admiration about her physical flawlessness and myriad of talents.

Among which we’re starting to discover her singing talents! In her spokesperson quality for H&M’s latest ad campaign (from which you’re seeing pictures below), Gisele was filmed in a backstage video singing her heart out. A cover nevertheless, but singing. Nicely and melodically. The Kinks’ ‘All Day and All of the Night’ is the tune, listen to Gisele’s rendition after the jump as well as the original version.
