ZOE SALDANA IS THE NEW FACE OF CALVIN KLEIN'S FALL 2010 UNDERWEAR CAMPAIGN


Shot by photographer,Mikael jansson in new york city,these Ads will debut in october 2010 magazines.

TREND ALERT-GRRR..!! ANIMAL PRINTS.

Seems to me like animal prints are warming their way into the hearts of celebrities and individuals alike.


I caught the fever and expressed it with my 80's inspired D.I.Y. headband,meanwhile Domenico dolce and Stefano Gabbana caught theirs and designed leopard print dresses worn by kylie minogue,keri hilson and rihanna.


Keri hilson showed up to the essence music festival in new orleans,wearing a blue D & G strapless leopard print dress. im so loving her hair,even though its rihanna-inspred.

Kylie minogue wore a teal below-the-knee dress while making an appearance in london on july 2nd.

Rihanna put a new twist as usual,and wore the print in red and tan to a restaurant in dublin,ireland.

grrr...!!!

"p.s.--- who wore the leopard-print dress better..??  KERI,KYLIE OR RIHANNA"

PHOTO-PHRENIA-DAPHNE GUINNESS FOR NARS.

So i pondered and figured i should add another segment to this blog. i named it "Photo-phRenia". cheeky yeah..?? no..?? ok..!!
its gonna be about photographs,both new and old,photoshoot,ad campaigns,models etc.

 

When i saw this picture,i wondered who this porcelain face belonged to.. i was shocked when i found out that it belonged to 43 year-old Daphne Guinness.
Apparently its an Ad campaign for a purple eyeshadow named after her by Francois nars.

FLAWLESSLY CHIC..!!

FASHION IN LAGOS;STUDIO 53 LAUNCH

Yesterday,the skies grew dark and all fashionable socialites,media personalities and celebs sashayed,strutted and swayed to Rehab lounge,Victoria island for the launch of Mnet's studio 53.
as usual,i ran to Bella naija to see what they were wearing and i picked my fave looks.

MELLOW YELLOW.
Yellow is one of my fave colour and i feel it takes guts to wear yellow,due to its ability to attract and shed lights on all features of your body. these ladies rocked yellow on a red black carpet and pulled it off.


love how she paired the red shoes with her yellow dress and a neon and gray bag.


CHIC AND CLASSY
Love her ciggarette jeans and how it suits her frame and elongates her legs.
i adore her zebra patternned clutch.
uber fab-tastic.

DOUBLE DELIGHT
 This couple pulled the same colour theme. when i saw the picture,i went blank and sighed,but figured it looked cute and obviously gets a pass mark. maybe another colour would have been better.. Red..?? purple.?? no..? OK..!!

WERK IT,FASHION BABY.



I love her colour theme;black. though Black is a drab colour,she is working it,as though there is no tomorrow. love her clutch and how it served as a pop of colour to her outfit.

SHOE-ORGASM;SOLANGE SHOES.

To those who know me or probably follow up this blog,you will know i love SHOES.. SHOES.. SHOES. i feel with hot pairs of shoes,you cant go wrong with your outfit. give me rags and a pair of louboutins and im strutting my way.
 I knew Solange is Beyonce's sister,with whom  they share the same gorgeous look and sultry voice,but i never went past that till i saw her post today on the link0-refiinery 29,talking about her style and her SHOES..!!
Golly gosh,she had amazing shoes on the photoshoot,so i took out time to find each of the shoes and its naira equivalent.

YVES SAINT LAURENT TRIBUTE STILETTOS- N118500

CHRISTAIN LOUBOUTIN FREDDY STUDDED FLATS-N149250

CHRISTAIN LOUBOUTIN PLATFORM-N149250

ELIZABETH AND JAMES HEELS-N52500

In addition,i have got really hot shoes that celebrities cant seem to get enough of.

these Brian atwood loca studded lilac suede sure makes my heart beat faster. with its unique design and studs.
these babies are sure versatile on any outfit.

Sam Edelman lorissa spiked suede peeptoe pumps also take a space in my heart.going for 30,000in naira equivalent,its a splurge,but totally worth it.

i realized im fast falling in love with wedges and booties. what if i had the two options in one shoe. chloe leather lace up wedge booties gives both.
after leighton meester wore them in an episode of gossip girl,i fell in love with it.Moreso,i see myself in this wedge boots,but its price,going for N104250,aint easy on me.
wear with a miniskirt or shorts with a tanktop and cardigan for a casual but sexy look.

DESIGNER REVIEW;JENNIFER LEVENSTON.

A new week,new expectations.. i also wish you a successful week..
last week,while going through the web,i saw beautiful pictures of a collection.. breathtaking collection,beautiful pictures.
i sent the designer an email and she replied with more pictures and a broader view on her collection.



Her name is jennifer levenston,who designs under the name,"PRODIGA".
she said the word,"prodiga" stands for "lavish" in italian,which is exactly how she wants her clothing line to reflect,but with the ability to be worn in everyday life.
the collection is made of beautiful fabrics to generate stunning garments with a high practicality element.



Prodiga's clothing range has been borne out of societal change. soaring numbers of women in high powered jobs has led to the increase in the demand for high quality fashionable work attire.

beautiful designs.. the mix of vintage fabrics such as laces,alongside ruffled elements make the clothes exquiste.
