How To Meet Anna Wintour

If meeting Anna Wintour and touring the very HQ of Vogue US is the dream of your entire fashion life, then this is your chance! There’s a special auction, estimated at $30,000 ending at 12pm EST, Monday August 26 for a high profile fashion package.

2 lucky people will get to sit down and talk to Anna Wintour at the NY offices of the American Vogue. They’d also get 2 NY Fashion Week tickets and a $2,500 shopping spree at Oscar de la Renta! Wait, there’s more! 3 Irene Neuwirth yellow gold&diamonds rings, a day at the John Barrett NY Salon for one person (hair&nails) and a bag from Ralph Lauren. I’m so excited, I’m drooling glitter!

The current bid, at one day before the auction’s end is $7,500. Should you enter the right amount, you’ll get all the honors above. 7 bidders have so far joined the auction and, most probably, one of them will get to meet the grand Anna Wintour in person and all the other advantages of this special fashion auction lot. Fancy some fashion bidding? (in case you do, here’s where you need to place your fashionable bid!)

Dreamgirls Jennifer Hudson Is Princess Tiana In New Disney Dream Portrait

This year, Disney released a new portrait in their series of Disney Dream Portraits, masterfully executed by Annie Leibovitz, as always. Starring Princess Tiana is the very talented Jennifer Hudson.

You may or may not remember but Tiana, although Disney’s 9th Princess, is the first African American Princess in their portfolio so far. Before settling for Anika Noni Rose, the producers have auditioned Jennifer Hudson, Beyonce Knowles (even Tyra Banks). Also a singer and an actress, Rose has co-starred with Hudson and Beyonce in Dreamgirls. But despite of her high profile colleagues having auditioned for Tiana, Anika Noni Rose got to voice the legendary Princess kissing the Frog.

What intrigues me now, upon seeing Disney new Dream Portrait, is that not Anika Noni Rose is Tiana but Jennifer Hudson. Isn’t it surprising… a little bit? (wait, there’s more! Hit the jump!)

3 Reasons To Watch Rihanna’s Styled To Rock TV Show!

This is how the Fashion world turns: one day you’re hot, the next you’re ice cold and nobody cares about you and your vision anymore. The dust started settling on Rachel Zoe’s Project show ending news and as we’re getting ready for the Fashion Week, might as well throw in a spicy TV show coming up this fall on your small but fashionable TV screens!

Below 3 reasons to convince you to watch this new TV show starting November 5:

{1} Rihanna, my dahlings, is part of the jury of a new fashion competition show called ‘Styled To Rock’. Her participation is enough to tune in for her show, just out of curiosity if nothing else. FIY, she’s the Executive Producer of the show! (click through to see two more surprising reasons to watch Style To Rock!)

Dare To Wear Inez And Vinoodh TTT Necklace, Byredo 1996 Perfume?

I could’ve just let this be a mainstream story but I wanted it to feel special. Because it is. Special. Ten Thousand Things jewelry sound and look like something else. They’ve pioneered so many times and tweaked and turned the classic jewelry design into so many simple yet incredibly catchy ways that you need to get to know them better!

They’ve made the cover of Vogue, the pages of Elle, the pictorials and advertorials of so many brands and magazines and still they’re relatively unknown to the large masses. But Ten Thousand Things have been around since 1991 and they’ve hanged on Kate Moss’s ear in her first Calvin Klein ad print! Fast forward to 2013 when TTT has worked on a special jewelry collection with Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin (as promoted by Leigh Lezark in a promotional campaign photographed by – you guessed it! – Inez and Vinoodh)!

Helena Christensen Fall Fashion Projects: Kipling Bags And Pirelli Calendar

A while back I found out about Helena Christensen collaborating with Kipling for a collection of luggage and large bags. Before getting to further investigate the bag matter, I caught word about yet another impressive collaboration Helena is involved in this fall: the Pirelli calendar!

Like always, the Pirelli Calendar is all about gorgeous models month after month. This year, however, is pretty special as the calendar in question is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Gathering the world’s most impressive models was de rigueur and keeping an aura of mystery around the shooting and the photographer is also part of the marketing strategy of this oh-so-special edition.

Helena Christensen, Alessandra Ambrosio, Alek Wek, Isabeli Fontana, Karolina Kurkova, Miranda Kerr – a flawless lineup for what I think would be one of the most impressive editions of the Pirelli calendar. We only got until November – as revealed, to find out more details about it.

3 Major Fashion Social Media Accounts You Need To Follow!

If you already have a social media account – two, three – you know what I’m talking about when I say that moderation is advised for a healthy handling of the social situation. And just before you got into new social grounds, a quick, shameless reminder of your must-follow fashion accounts: Stylefrizz on Instagram, Stylefrizz on Pinterest and Stylefrizz on Facebook.

Now: how can we ever keep it at a sane level when Anna Wintour has taken to Instagram to show her support for Vogue’s September issue? – are the sales so low that the grand Wintour had to lend a supporting hand? Isn’t Jennifer Lawrence Hollywood aura not enough to make a bestseller out of this September 2013 issue? You see, a lot of question sparkle from just a simple photo! Like my Adored Husband says: ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ or questions in our case…

Either way, this was published on Vogue Magazine’s Instagram account in a challenge-sort-of-initiative to get everyone showing how they read their Vogue’s #TheSeptemberIssue…

Short Fall Fashion Guide With 6 Vogue September 2013 Issues

With the Fashion Week less than a month away, Vogue September issues should be the quintessential teasers to put us in the mood for fall. I thought that instead of treating them one by one, we could enjoy a larger perspective and gather 6 Vogue international editions with their respective September issues for a comprehensive appreciation of fall novelties in Vogue’s head.

From Vogue Paris in Grunge and Vogue US in Hollywood, the September Issues are not too clear on what cap is our fall fashion’s boat taking. Surely, we do appreciate Emmanuelle Alt’s edgy take on Saskia de Brauw and we love Jennifer Lawrence to pieces, even despite her dull Vogue US pictorial, but where should we look for real fall fashion inspiration?

Vogue Netherlands September 2013 takes tanned beauty Doutzen Kroes out in a seemingly wild&unfriendly nature, Vogue Spain September 2013 keeps Doutzen Kroes inside the studio, betting it all on her gorgeous body, summer glow and dark clothes, Vogue Australia September 2013 highlights Victoria Beckham and her fashion secrets and (my favorite) Vogue Russia September 2013 redlights Sasha Pivovarova and her fringed wig. What to choose? What to wear?
