Rodrigo Santoro and Alessandra Ambrosio for Vogue Brazil

The brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio and the gorgeous actor Rodrigo Santoro teamed up for the December editorial of Vogue Brazil and this is the result. A sexy couple taking a walk on the city park.

Birthday mood

My birthday is just around the corner so I’ve decided to do a mood board. Can you guess what I will be wearing for my birthday party tomorrow? 🙂

Fall Fashion from A to Sequins (#4): Fetish

This trend can speak for itself. Imagine yourself wearing your most deepest and sexy fantasy dress while you walk the streets of your city.

Marc Jacobs was the most daring designer at Louis Vuitton, but the trend was present in several fashion shows.

Cotton Club

As promised, here is a set of pictures from my first concert with the band – Cotton Club. It was great singing with these three guys, I had lots of fun!

In the mood…for all that jazz!

 I’ve been feeling very excited these past few days! Next Friday I’ll have my first concert with the new band and the guys decided I will be in charge of wardrobe.

I’m trying to gather the pictures that better reflect the mood of the band so I can translate that to the clothes we will be wearing. I’m really looking forward to sing again and who knows? Maybe I can post some pictures from the outfits after the concert.

Picture This! – Me

I noticed I post a lot of pictures, but I’m only in few of them and when I am, you can barely see my face, therefore, I though this would make sense! 🙂

All eyes on: Gareth Pugh and Matthew Williamson

GARETH PUGH

Fall/Winter 2011:

Black, gold and cobalt blue were the colours for a fashion show characterized by asymmetrical looks and gothic inspiration. Silk dresses and high-midi skirts, leather bold pieces, long gloves and lots of sequins were the must of the show.

Spring/Summer 2012:

For the next season, the designer opted for the duality black/white with only four metallic looks in the end of the show. The cage-esque constructions were inspired in insects.

Celebrities can’t resist his designs. Tell it to BeyoncĂ©, who’s been wearing his clothes time after time, as we’ve already seen here.

MATTHEW WILLIAMSON

Fall/Winter 2011:

Francisco Infante-Arana, a Russian photographer who photographs mirrored sculptures (see picture below) was Matthew’s inspiration for the Fall/Winter collection, hence the large quantity of geometric prints and patchworks all over the clothes.

Colorful, but balanced, my favorite piece was the dress with in the first picture. Although, I didn’t like the footwear.

Spring/Summer 2012:

Orange is the color that comes to my mind when I think about this show.

I think the styling of this collection is much well done than the previous one. Very minimal but youthful. According to the designer “It’s loosely based on the Japanese influences that I worked on quite heavily for my pre-collection”. You could clearly find this influence on the floral and feminine patterns.

*I really think these are two designers we should keep an eye on in the future.

Chanel’s designer Karl Lagerfeld and Sephora teamed up and the result was this great set of beauty products. With my anniversary almost here, I think I already found my birthday gift for myself. The problem (even though my favorite is the snow globe) is… I want it all! 🙂

Fall Fashion from A to Sequins (#3): Cocoon

 

We haven’t seen so many cocoon silhouettes since 1957, when Cristobal Balenciaga designed the first cocoon coat. Initially created to accentuate and draw the attention of men to the assets of women’s bodies – “Often with age comes thick waists or necks, but the wrist is the last to go” – it now appears as a statement and an updated version, which can be worn by every modern woman.

The concept is still the same:  bracelets (or 7/8 length sleeves) are supposed to make the wrist look more delicate and the waist is lower in the back to accentuate the curves.

Designers such as Burberry Prorsum and Loewe (first two pictures above) decided to recreate it in the form of a coat, Stella McCartney and Jil Sander preferred dresses and Balenciaga created a tunic and paired it with trousers.

What do you think about this silhouette? Hit or miss? Would you wear it? How?
