Morning Inspiration: White

ELLE-Czech-Republic-February-2013-kamila-model-white-suit-fashionIt is part of my perfect morning routine to wake up and find something creative or inspiriting on one of my favorite blogs. Usually tumblr is my source of beautiful things that always cheer me up in the morning and make me start fresh even though it’s only Wednesday. Add a cup of my favorite tea to that and it’s perfect!

I have always found the white layering in clothes a perfect expression of minimalist sophistication. Whether it is a suit or other ensemble, it reflects that airy refined beauty of style which is so desired for spring and summer.

2012 Elle Women in Hollywod – The Outfits

The event gathered a lot of household names from the film industry. From start I will say that a lot of them wore Calvin Klein ensembles since the event was sponsored by the American brand. Emma Watson, for example, chose a spring 2013 dress. Sarah Jessica Parker opted for an outfit from the same collection. Cate Blanchett wore a Proenza Schouler dress. Uma Thurman wore Calvin Klein as well.

Emma Stone chose a Valentino Resort 2013 dress. Kristen Wiig, Jaime King and Rashida Jones all opted from Calvin Klein dresses. Jaime also donned a Calvin Klein coat.

Elle Fanning wore a Calvin Klein dress. Nina Dobrev opted for a Vera Wang lace dress, while Lea Michele wore a Zimmerman ensemble. Krysten Ritter donned a Ramona Keveza dress.

“Mad Men” actress, Kiernan Shipka, wore a lovely Moschino outfit. Lake Bell opted for an Etro printed dress while Julianne Hough went with Calvin Klein . Anna Kendrick wore Badgley Mischka.(pictures via: zimbio.com)

Gatsby, what Gatsby?…

…Carey Mulligan’s character, Daisy Buchanan, asks softly in the newest trailer for the awaited “Great Gatsby” movie, starring household names such as Leonardo Dicaprio, Tobey Maguire or Joel Edgerton. Yet, I won’t talk about the movie, but the enchanting style inspired by the jazz era and culture. We have already seen it used by Gucci in their spring 2012 art deco inspired collection, and now Rodarte delights us with wonderful hairstyles for the Fall 2012 collection. Lovely barrettes lighten the heavy fall looks. If you want to recreate this feminine hairstyle you should check out this post on fashioning.com on how to do it yourself: fashionising.com

You can check out more backstage photos here: rafinery29.com or the entire collection on vogue.com .

Also, enjoy these pictures by photographer David Vasiljevic, for the May issue of Elle France. With the movie coming out this year, I expect to see more and more editorials of this kind.

Style: The deep plunging neckline!

A couple of days ago, Rihanna was spotted in a colourful deep plunging neckline jacket-dress while promoting her new movie “Battleship” in London. The printed jacket is part of Stella McCartney’s Evening 2012 Collection. Seeing her in this outfit, I remembered about some magazine photoshoots that I wanted to share with you. This style, although a little bit bold, is very stylish, glamorous and in the same time very feminine. Enjoy the pictures!
