Singer-songwriter, Taylor Swift, announced that she will be working with Elizabeth Arden to release her very first signature fragrance. Swift says in a press release:
Last night at the London premiere of her new movie The Kids Are Alright, Julianne Moore wore a questionable dress. The Lanvin get up she donned looks like she is wearing one dress with robe sort of thing wore on one side of her body and kept on with a middle belt. She completed the look with a cute Bulgari clutch and ankle-cuffed black heels. I think I like the outfit as a whole, but the more I stare at the dress, the more unusual it gets in my eyes. Therefore, I am labeling it as “bad”.
What do you think of Julianne’s “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” ensemble?
One of my favorite things to do is compare celebrities when they wear the same outfit, it’s like a fashion showdown! So for this post I am calling out Rosci from BET’s 106 & Park and Kim Kardashian. On Friday, both ladies wore a burgundy Bebe dress; Rosci as she sat down with Kanye West and Kim as she attended a party at Amnesia NYC. As you will see the dress is pretty simple and both of the women wore it in very different ways.
Rosci – the BET hostess kept it pretty simple, choosing to go with a pair of nude platform pumps, a few pieces of statement jewelry, chicly tousled locks and non-fussy makeup.
Kim – While Kim’s hair and makeup approach are pretty similar to Rosci’s, the way she dressed up the dress couldn’t have been more different. Ms. Kardashian went with a FAUX fur vest over the burgundy dress and rocked a pair of leopard print booties; a stark contrast to Rosci’s barely there pumps/necklace combo.
As for who I think wore it better…it’s tricky; I think both celeb fashionistas look great! And while I like the simplicity of Rosci’s ensemble, I admire the fashion risk that Kim is taking by making her outfit kind of busy. If she lost the vest, this would definitely be a Kardashian win in my book because I LOVE those booties. However I am going to have to proclaim Rosci the winner of this fashion throw-down on the basis that Kim’s fur was a bit too much for my taste.
Congrats, Rosci! Sometimes less really is more.
A few weeks ago I posted about Nicole by OPI releasing a collection of nail polishes centered around Justin Bieber’s My World album. While it has been revealed that the Biebs will have nothing to do with the creation of this line, it has been announced that he has been collaborating with Etoile Nation Beauty for another beauty product – perfume. The tween pop sensation has teamed up with Etoile to release his on line of unisex scents and they will be packaged in a very unusual manner.
Opting out of using the tradition glass or plastic bottles, Bieber has gone with housing his scents in wristbands and dog tags. Yup, that’s right. The trinkets are made from resin technology that will deliver the scent and are said to last up to a year. I am very interested to see and smell the fragrances; the packaging is definitely unique to say the least.
While I am a huge fan of Helena Bonham Carter’s acting and her quirky personality that translates into her eccentric fashion sense, the look she donned at The King’s Speech movie promotion photocall just makes me go “ehh”. I was very tempted to dub this look as “ugly” but I like the boots and factored in Bonham Carter’s usual kitsch so I decided that the outfit was just a “bad” choice on her part.
I think that if the skirt was a bit shorter, maybe if it hit just above the knee, it would have done it some justice. I think Helena just got lost somewhere in the fabric and I find it unfortunate.
