Little Jenny Steps Up

Looks like Serena and Blair, a.k.a. Blake Lively and Leighton Meester, aren't the only ones to land campaigns for brands Chanel and Missoni.
Taylor Momsen is now the new face of John Galliano's new fragrance, Parlez-Moi d’Amour.
The song in the video is also one of Taylor's own songs called "You."
I like the video itself and I have to admit that Taylor's song is actually quite good, compared to her usual songs from her band The Pretty Reckless that have more of a "hard-rockish" feel.

B & S Are At It Again

As in, Blair Waldorf--Leighton Meester, and Serena van der Woodsen--Blake Lively, have landed the faces of two different high fashion campaigns.
After re-watching the last of the fourth season of Gossip Girl and once again becoming familiar with their fashion, it's no surprise that these two talented women are the faces of Chanel (Blake Lively) and Missoni (Leighton Meester).
The ad campaign running early next year for Chanel, Blake Lively will be promoting the brand's handbags. Also starring in Green Lantern, premiering June 17, and recently receiving the spot on Vogue's Best Dressed list, Lively definitely has the style for Karl Lagerfeld's designs.

Previously landing Vera Wang's newest fragrance launching next summer as well as acting in an upcoming movie called Country Strong (in theaters January 7), Leighton Meester has become the new face of the Missoni campaign, also launching early next year.

Both these beautiful ladies have incredible talent and I am looking forward to seeing their sure-to-be amazing campaign advertisements for these two great brands.

A Clash of Shoes

UGG and Jimmy Choo collaborated on footwear: UGG & Jimmy Choo Limited Edition boots.
Pairing together a casual, comfortable footwear company and a high-style footwear company, the result is high-style boots.
Tamara Mellon, the found and Chief Creative Officer of Jimmy Choo states that "Other than Jimmy Choo, UGG Australia is the only other footwear I have in my wardrobe." I really don't blame her.
The collection's price range is from $595 to $795 and consists of five stylish boots complete with studs, animal prints, and comfort.

Angels

The glitter, the lingerie, the wings. The three make up the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show which aired on CBS Tuesday night.
With performances by Katy Perry and Akon, Adriana Lima strutting down the glitter SOMETHING runway wearing the $2 million Bombshell Fantasy Bra encrusted with diamonds and sapphire designed by Damiani, and more wings than ever, The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show definitely was a firework (a.k.a the song which Katy Perry opened with). Akon also performed his new single, very fitting for the fashion show, called Angel. The fashion show offered a little dose of behind-the-scenes action that featured the models talking their VS "family" and getting ready for the runway.
The theme for the show, "A Night of 1000 Fantasies," the fashion show was broken up into 5 sections:
1. Tough Love
2. Game On
3. Country Girl
4. Wild Things
5. Pink

Just a peek into some of the outfits at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show:


Katy Perry


One of my favorite outfits from the whole show. Behati Prinsloo in the "Game On" portion of the fashion show. Loved it.


Also from the Game On portion, Isabeli Fontana. Definitely just proves that these girls work out heavily to get into the amazing shape they're in.


Adriana Lima wearing the Damiani $2 million bra.


Also one of my favorites. Erin Heatherton from the "Wild Things" segment.



For the Pink portion, Chanel Iman came out with both bubble wings and a bubble gun. Though I never saw her a Victoria's Secret model, she seems to fit well with the Victoria's Secret Pink; too sweet.

Also, if you're a fan of Victoria's Secret Pink, you can check out their limited edition collection of clothing seen on the fashion show!
If you prefer clothing from Victoria's Secret instead, check out their "Fashion Show: Supermodel Essentials."

Ten-Year-Old Designer?

Really so amazing to watch. When I read that this ten-year-old girl, Cecilia Cassini, designed a "fitted sequin tunic dress" just for Miley Cyrus, I didn't believe she could have been ten-years-old. So I checked her out and found this video that I thought I would share. It's seriously unbelievable. Up-and-coming designer? I think so.
