In an effusion of immodest satisfaction, Graydon Carter, the Vanity Fair editor, launches a semi-rhetorical question in regards of the longevity of Vanity Fair magazine which is launching its 100 Anniversary edition this month:
‘In an age when nothing seems to last—not convictions, not even cities—a centennial, like the one Vanity Fair celebrates this year, makes me marvel at the simple fact of longevity.’
On the cover of its special anniversary edition, Kate Upton holds a mini-cake with one candle and looks as glamorous as Marilyn Monroe did. Back in her 1962s Happy Birthday, Mr. President heydays. So yeah, Mr Carter: I totally approve and join you in marveling at the simple fact of reenacting past glories over and over again and still being published month after month after month (last month’s covergirl? Late Lady Diana!)

Why? No reason! Just because you were singing Pharrell songs all summer long so maybe you’d want to keep that vision with you for the cold months? Nah, just kidding. You remember Pharrell was involved with Moncler before and he put his sell-all name on a vest – well, now it’s time to amp up the fashion game and wear some Pharrell Moncler sunglasses.
Because in the end, it’s not about how the perfume smells, how a jacket looks like or how a pair of sunglasses protect you from the potentially damaging sunrays. It’s about the concept (after the jump, a picture from Moncler’s Fall Winter 2013 2014 ad campaign to give you a full grasp on Moncler’s conceptualization of fashion). And Pharrell is always maker and protector of hits. Of all kinds. In any combination. He is, truly, what he describes himself to be: an artist.

We’ve been waiting for this campaign to drop for so long now, it just feels like the new Brad Pitt for Chanel craze happening all over again. And it may be just that: Robert Pattinson, my dahlings, is the new Brad Pitt.
The Brad Pitt of the new generation. And since the original Brad Pitt fantastically erected like a legend among men and women equally just because of his jeans-behind in a movie about the so-called feminine emancipation, why wouldn’t Robert Pattinson be the epitome of the modern man after showing his victimized face and protective fangs in a movie about a vampire’s emancipation?
But back to Dior: Robert Pattinson is Dior Homme as you’ll see him perform after the jump, directed by Romain Gavras.

Carefully planning our Fall beauty references from this on as we officially mark the end of the summer with today’s Labor Day (also harmoniously blending together my passion for all things nails), I thought I’d let you know about this fall’s most sought-after fashion nail polishes!
As we’ve been already accustomed, season after the season, Chanel sets the tone for it-nail polishes and this fall it’s about blue, rose and black. Burberry, on the other hand, is completing its English charm palette with a gorgeous deep red polish they aptly named ‘Oxblood’. Somewhere at the intersection of Chanel’s fall polish trifecta and Burberry’s Oxblood red polish lays the upcoming season’s beauty equilibrium.

Today we’ll be briefly talking about Miss Indie Queen Chloe Sevigny, she who is so cool that she’s designing her own clothes thus chaining collections for Opening Ceremony season after season.
Clearly her style&panache target a special segment of the fashion population formerly known as hipsters who are highly mindful about what&where they’re shopping and less careful about how they’re wearing it. The proof below with Chloe Sevigny who was recently seen out and about in a casual denim on denim look finished with a pair of Opening Ceremony white Grunge Oxfords (priced at $390) worn with white socks.
After the jump, you’ll see a casual outfit inspired by Chloe Sevigny that you can either finish in fancy oxfords like miss fashionista here or in flatform sneakers. Your choice!

It’s been a while since we last talked about Sandra Bullock so it’s about time we made up for that with a peak at Sandy’s wardrobe!
Color blocking outfits have been around for ages but in the past two years, there’s been a serious frenzy of color block looks: either in two-pieces combinations or blended into a single statement bright item to wear all summer long. The latter goes for Sandra Bullock here who made a sunny appearance at the 2013 Venice Film Festival in Italy for Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity movie (in which she’s costarring with George Clooney) in a bright Alex Perry tangerine pink dress. (more after the jump!)

Did you know that Carine Roitfeld has her own movie-like documentary? An entire film about Carine Roitfeld and her fashion adventures. From her iconic Vogue Paris era to her CR Fashion Book days. I was really surprised by this move. The September Issue, anyone? Except it’s bigger. Better. And French. (wink)
Except… there’s something fishy here: not only does this new fashion film center around Carine’s life as a fashion magazine editor and fashion stylist but also around her life as a mother, grandmother, career woman and woman, in short. That hasn’t been done in the September Issue. Because Anna Wintour is a real professional and doesn’t expect nor desire that her personal private life to become public. Especially in fashion, where everyone is so judgmental.
Carine is a player. A high fashion teaser. Her fashion performance resembles so much to Miley’s VMAs act that I can hardly contain my amazement at the thought that nobody raised any eyebrows about Carine’s teasing until now. Not like they do with young Miley there…

Beyond the obvious self branding that a celebrity practices incessantly, we’re always curious to see what our famous ones are wearing. Because, you know, they’re coveted by so many brands, they have endless possibilities and affordability so what they wear must be good, right?
I’m not one to dress like the famous ones because I do like my own personal style to remain my own, but I do keep some references in mind when I’m considering this or that look, this or that brand. I know you must have read the title already (duh!) but try and pretend you haven’t: when you say ‘Gwen Stefani’s shoes’ what comes to mind?
(for me it’s edgy, unusual with a rock’n’roll twist, definitely wedges and very high platform heels)
