Models And Their Children Advertise Born Free Africa Designers Collection

I know it’s a special time, and along with my warm ‘Happy Easter!’ wishes, hoping you’re getting plenty of love, peace and smiles, I’d like to take this opportunity and bring awareness to a very special campaign: Born Free Africa!

Fashion is giving a helping hand in raising awareness (and, hopefully, more) about preventing the mother-to-baby HIV transmission! Designers (23 women designers who are also mothers), models (women models who are also mothers) and more fashion luminaries (fashion magazines editors, retailers) have joined the Born Free Africa movement: will you?

Pierce Brosnan Watches Identified: A Long Way Down

After a day of research, I finally tracked down the watches worn by Pierce Brosnan in one of his latest movies, A Long Way Down: Jaeger LeCoultre and Ponerai are the two brands of his two watches he’s seen wearing!

I recently discovered that I’m not the only one who enjoys movies not just for the cinematic thrills of the story and the enthralling beauty of the directorial perspective but also because I like tracking down and identifying bits and pieces of the character’s wardrobe. Every week, I’ll do my best to serve you yet another Film Fashion episode and today it’s about ‘A Long Way Down’ and Pierce Brosnan!

Freja Beha Erichsen For Zadig & Voltaire Capsule Collection

After seeing Kate Moss for Topshop, finding out about Alexander Wang for H&M and Roland Mouret for Banana Republic, how about Freja Beha Erichsen for Zadig & Voltaire?

Kristen Stewart Vs. Vanessa Paradis In Chanel Pre Fall 2014 Photographed By Lagerfeld

Remember when Chanel announced that the next spokesperson of the French fashion house will be none the other but Kristen Stewart? She who repeatedly made columnists worldwide exclaim how frozen her expression was and, therefore, how limited her range of interpretation? How could she be a fashion model? How could she interpret fashion when she only has one expression?

With a little help from Karl Lagerfeld and his vision, Kristen turned into a wonderful model for Chanel’s Cowboys and Indians pre – fall 2014 collection! When I saw the images, I admit I was impressed with the styling!

How To Wear Summer Outfit Essentials: Linen

Linen is my fabric of choice for Spring and Summer. Hopefully it will become yours too, after reading this story! While writing about my favorite pieces from Kate Moss & Topshop new collection, it occurred to me I never talked about something that’s of capital importance to me: linen.

For Spring and Summer, I could wear linen (and actually do wear it) 24/7. Because it’s natural, because it looks amazing and because it’s so versatile! How many fabrics have you seen worn in and out of office, on the bed or hanging at the windows with the same perfect elegance and easiness?

A new Topshop collection designed in collaboration with Kate Moss is clearly any fashionista’s dream. Out of the many items presented, I narrowed down a selection of 15 pieces I would love to personally own and wear in more than one occasions!

The names you need to remember so you can follow their faces – you’ll be seeing more and more of these beautiful ladies around: Lupita N’Yongo, Zoe Saldana and Joan Smalls!

Year after year, the fashion industry (and any entertainment industry) is struggling with ethnicity. How hard it is to have a diverse representation of reality on the small screen, in social media and any other conventional field is no secret. Just days ago, Vogue UK wrapped up the 2014 edition of their ‘Vogue Festival’ where Naomi Campbell and Vogue Italia’s editor in chief Franca Sozzani made yet another call for diversity in fashion. So many efforts, so many people ask for diversity and yet, in 2014 we only have 3 black beauties fronting fashion/beauty campaigns!
