Street Style: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Stella McCartney dress @ New York City

Before attending the premiere of her boyfriend’s latest action flick “Safe”, Rosie was spotted out in New York City wearing a Stella McCartney Spring 2012 printed dress and Alexander Wang Resort 2012 Platform Sandals. Surprisingly the outfit looks very nice, thanks to Rosie, I suppose, who knows how to wear it. It’s really not one of my favorite Stella McCartney items but it looks good on Rosie. She completed the look with a Jason Wu bag. (pictures via: celebrity-gossip.net/credit: Getty Images)

You can find the dress at mytheresa.com  and the Alexander Wang Sandals at shopbop.com. The sandals come in different colors.

Arrivals @ Salvatore Ferragamo’s Signorina Fragrance Launch, NYC

Most of the public figures that attended the launch of the newest Salvatore Ferragamo fragrance wore outfits from the Spring/Summer 2012 Collection. Therefore, the pink carpet was filled with colourful and wild prints from various blue hues to orange or pink. Kate Mara, Bianca Balti and Annasophia Robb wore lovely summery dresses while Eugenia Silva chose a pair of Salvatore Ferragamo high-waisted printed trousers and Piper Perabo a blue-hued top and printed skirt.

Street Style: Green Prints in Spring

 When it comes to nature, its palette of inspirational elements is so wide in fashion that I don’t even know what to start with: big flowers, small flowers, leaves, palm tree leaves, birds, butterflies etc. Yet, today, I want to focus on green and green prints respectively, because it’s spring and spring means revitalisation, something that this colour is associated with. There is no secret for anyone that prints have been thriving and thriving, more and more, to where there is no boundary anymore in styling the printed items and combining them with what else than… other prints. The more the better seems to be the perfect  guideline these days. And the designers have confirmed it with their Spring/Summer 2012 Collections.

What to know about green: Colors have their individual characteristics — affecting our moods and emotions. Even though, sometimes we do understand the effect of colors on us, we are yet to consciously learn to use colors to our advantage.

The color green has a very calming and relaxing effect. It is associated with healing, and is popularly used in hospitals, clinics, and green rooms. In many cultures, green color denotes growth, learning, healing, abundance, fertility, and prosperity. It is believed to augur great success in any new venture. In ancient Greece, green color symbolized victory. In the highlands of Scotland, people wore green as a mark of honor. (source)
