Fendi by Karl Lagerfeld

Resort 2012 for Fendi, photographed by Karl Lagerfeld – one of my favourites thus far. Natasha Poly, being the blonde bombshell that she is, is the perfect choice for this shoot, combining attitude with elegance. The clashing contrast between the bright background and the marble statues is what elevates these shots from just another Resort Campaign.

Summer does NYLON

Even though she hasn’t been Summer since The O.C. wrapped yonks ago now, it’s the role we will always associate her with. After the teen drama came to an end, Rachel Bilson withdrew from the limelight and has been carving out a career as an indie-loving actress ever since, as well as being cast in the role of muse to Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld.

In a rare editorial, Rachel looks amazing on the cover of Nylon’s November issue. The styling is great as – cue cliché – she is wearing the clothes and not the other way around. I especially like the behind-the-scenes photos, all the more inviting.

Free People’s roaring twenties

In continuation from an earlier post, I bring you Free People’s depiction of the roaring twenties from their soon-to-be released compilation ‘Through the Decades’. Shot by David Bellemere once again, these photos are gorgeous, capturing the essence of the twenties completely. Elsa Hosk & Zuzanna and Julia Bijoch epitomise the waif-like ethereal beauty that was all the rage in the twenties.

I love the styling by Free People’s in-house crowd. The fact that the looks are so wearable, I fully believe I too could carry off a drop waist flapper dress and drape myself across a Parisian-chic tavern.

Free People in the seventies

These absolutely gorgeous photos are all in the name of Free People’s upcoming book, ‘Through the Decades’, to be launched in November. Shot by David Bellemere, this shoot is dedicated to the decadent era that was the seventies. This is one of the most gorgeous shoots I’ve seen in a long time. I’m a big fan of the seventies anyway, so anything involving the age of disco was always going to go down well with me. These photos are just so ethereal and beautiful, and the styling is amazing!

Velveteen dreams

twenty8twelve Fall 2010

Calvin Klein Resort 2011

Asos Marketplace

I just love when winter comes around because then I have an actual legitimate reason to break out the velvet. Velvet, epitomising the winter months, and dare I say it – Christmas – is the necessary luxe factor in your winter wardrobe. While I have always loved velvet, it has only become ‘trendy’ again recently, moreso among street style enthusiasts and those willing to step outside the box and funk up their look. Velvet works for both night-time and daytime in rich colours such as burgundy and violet. Black also works too, but can sometimes be a little bit flat. I love Calvin Klein’s take on the trend with their neon maxi dress – definitely a look I will trying in the coming months. Savannah Miller’s label, twenty8twelve, also do some great pieces aimed at a more urban clientele. Her long-sleeved textured dress is the perfect way to do black velvet without it looking flat. The turban is also a cool twist on the look. Lookbook.nu is a treasure trove of velvet-loving ladies, such as Lua P, who makes it her own with Creepers and galaxy print.
