Best of Emmys

Sofia Vergara in Carolina Herrera

Maria Menounos in Ralph & Russo

Lea Michele in Oscar de la Renta

January Jones in Armani

Eva Longoria in Robert Rodriguez

It's funny.... I was looking around for Emmy looks and I found in many blogs opinions very different from mine. The worst dresses for many people are the best for me, like the blue Armani gown that January Jones wore. Here are my favourites, feel free to disagree!

Little Red Dress

Although red is a strong tendence this year (as I showed before, Valentino is one of the best examples of that), red will never be the new black. But I advice all fashion lovers to have a red dress this season. Forget the idea that red should be used only for parties... You can use for work, go out for dinner or just hang out with friends. Don't be affraid of using it! You can find the two examples above at Farfetch, including the Anastase one with 50% discount.

CHARLES ANASTASE - Silk cocktail dress

HALSTON HERITAGE - Ruched front dress

And about the face... I've been saying this since the spring: forget the strong eye make up and put some red in your mouth. Combined with a nude make up you'll look like a princess charming.

Sex & the City? Never Mind!!!!

(picture credits: Just Jared, Star Style inc, Celebrity Gossip)

If Sex & the City was once the guide book for every fashionist now you have GG: Gossip Girl. It's also in New York, but instead of 4 girlfriends in the 40's and their relations we have a bunch of 18/20 years old living glamorously in the Upper East Side, dressing Haute Couture every episode and living the adventures of... a book imagined for someone very creative because the scripts are simply improbable... But we love it the same... The 4th season will start at September 13th. Here is the trailer and some photos from the sets.... Don't they look great???

King McQueen

White and Black Scarf from Mr. Alexander McQueen. One of the last pieces he might have designed for his brand. I bought, first because I like it, I can see myself in a white doll dress and this scarf. Second, because I wanted something that will last from this big fashion Genius.
The scarf arrived today! I love it, don't you?
Thank you Mr. Mq.Queen. May the angels dressed in little skulls be with you.

Woman and Smoking

I hate see woman smoking. Always did. Even if I like to have a smoke once in a laaaaaarge while. But things that gave us pleasure are normally nice to see.
This Blog: http://lesmokingimage.blogspot.com/ is all about pictures of woman smoking. I posted some of my fav pics I've seen there. Go there and enjoy the rest, It's worth it!

Oui c'est Chanel Mademoiselle

The Chanel AW10 collection just rocked me. It's so beautiful, so confortable. Fur, knit wear and yet... So CHIC! Remember what Coco Chanel said? "Luxury must be confortable, otherwise it is not luxury". Madame et Monsieurs ça c'est Chanel.

Le Silla in wonderland

Ao trabalhar na Farfetch.com todos os dias aprendo mais sobre moda, designers e tendências. Hoje chegaram directamente da Biondini, uma loja super sofisticada em Paris, vários sapatos, sandálias e botas de perder a cabeça. Hoje conheci uma nova marca: Le Silla, usada em Red Carpets por estrelas como Victoria Beckham, Eva Longoria e Paris Hilton. A marca italiana define o seu conceito da seguinte forma:

"The elegant woman, who selects the most chic and eccentric fashion trends, loves showing off her own style through what she wears and is inclined towards luxury. She is inevitably struck by Le Silla creations that are surrounded with beauty and charm.
A sophisticated and seductive style distinguishes this shoe collection because of its strong and determined themes.
Add to their charm a stylised and lengthened silhouette which recalls feminine shapes on the feet. The thin stiletto heels and tapering wedges, together with a wide neckline give women a light, sensuous step making them ethereal and unreachable creatures."

Esta bota branca chegou hoje cá e deixou a todos deslumbrados. Em breve poderão vê-la melhor ou comprá-la em Farfetch.com ;)

Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini

Dear all, my adorable foreign flollowers. Most of you must be curious about what does "bikini pequenino às bolinhas amarelas" means. Here is the answer. Remember this song? In the 80's we had it in a portuguese version so is a very common expression. In 2010 I still think this is a very cool song. I love it! Love it yourself now:

Balmain Fall/Winter 2010: To live and die for!!!!

I saw today some items of this collection. They are AMAZING! It's a very expensive brand but the touch, the detais, the originality.... Totally worth it. This is the video of the full fashion show in Paris Fashion Week. I'm sure you are going to love!

Early 80's/ late 70's ???? Forget about it, we are back to the 90's!!!

Last year we could see in catwalks and later in stores the punk looks, short dresses and skirts, all the colors mixed, bohemian chic tunics with shine skin leggings, dresses with jeans in the bottom, etc. The hair and make up was just similar to the super stars from the 70's early 80's: Crazy hair cuts and nail colors. Basically, everything was valid... and wild! This A/W season the designers cut tottaly with these tendences and we are back to classy "late 80's early 90's" with a bit of the sensuality and curves of the 50's that can see in transparencies and laces. We still have bohemian and hippy looks, but they are cleaner. Tweed is one of the most important fabrics, and they are back in force just like the tailleurs. Set pairs are very common this season, as well as the large jackets, not banded and with broad shoulders (M/W). The leather is back for good also, with pair sets or just skirts or jackets even though we are not going to see the typical motorcyclist style much. With leather it comes the fur (fake or original) just in collars or in the entire piece. Monocolor in strong colors like red is a tendence that already started in the summer and continues for A/W. Also back are the woods, knits and cotton (tailleurs and cardigans). Ready to remember Beverly Hills 90210, Melrose place or Goodfellas and Pulp Fiction? Here it goes some pictures from the main fashion weeks in the world:

Always remember: Although the fashion is cyclic, year to year, season to season, we can see innovations in designs and styles. And these are some examples of that. Enjoy!

Last season everybody talked about the "be stupid" Diesel spring campaign. From bad to good reviews, the important thing is that the brand made a statement of originality and creativity. It doesn't matter if I agree with the messages they posted in the adds, I just consider the final product of advertising is absolutely amazing: shocking, funny and controversial. As Andy Wharol said:

"Don't pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches".

This is the new fall campaign from Be Stupid:
