Chanel Resort Saint -Tropez 2011

This collection took place in Saint-Tropez at the famous cafe Senequier, what a better way to represent a resort collection! hmmm Jealous!
I'm definitely not a Chanel girl cause i find the look to girlie, ladylike and mature and i believe i'm non of the above :)
but the Resort collection was full of youth and a lot of different looks were gracing the show,such as the denim look, the ladylike look, the red carpet look and so on. ....I loooooooved the fact that most of the models were barefoot and for me that is what summer should be, BAREFOOT all the way! with regular pedicure sessions!!!
Some looks were graced with beautiful Grecian golden or leather sandals , tre chic!
The collection is extremely wearable and easy , not complicated fabrics and textures, and what i found very interesting is that Lagerfeld is bringing back the matchy matchy look!!!
Which i can't get used to as i love not to match things, i find it pretty boring when the clothes are matching the shoes , the bag and the hairband!!!!
The way he presented the matchy matchy look , in fact, it appeared beautiful , full of elegance and grace......
He is a genius and he knows how to twist things around without following trends.
On the photos below ,i chose my favourite outfits from his collection to share with you.......

                                                                          En voila!!!

Au revoir! xxx

Braided Hairstyle!

2010 hair styles for women

Love the braided look so much! I'm one of these women that  can't really spend hours in front of the mirror styling my hair, it's just doesn't do it for me, i want to do something easy, fast, and looking not to polished! Having your hair with a loose plait is the best way for this summer and not only, it gives an air of freshness and youthfulness without trying to hard.

The popularity of milkmaid braid in 2009 evolves into the braided hairstyle trend in 2010.  Particularly prominent on Alexander Wang's Spring 2010 runway, we also spotted them at Miuccia Prada's Miu Miu Spring 2010 and, increasingly, amongst street style pictures.

There are two braided hairstyle , the long side braid and the fish plait as seen on Missoni 2010 looks  .

A braid or a plait, it's an easy way to a beautiful, relaxed, messy  sexy look!!!

Rule number one , need to have quite long hair ! :)

Petrovsky & Ramone for Blend Magazine Spring 2010.

Another black and white shoot that i love is by Petrovsky & Ramone for Blend magazine.
I recently discovered their work and i LOVE their photography , their concept, the movement and the message they are putting out there,  very inspiring and influential!
"Have used Arabia, Africa, Europe and the United States as decor for their staged work, which captures a unique, raw and eccentric yet elegant world full of atmosphere that is caught in a participating and almost documentary style. http://newindustryarts.com/index.html 

Morena Westerik  and Petra van Bennekum  met while assisting the same photographer, traveling the world they started to create concepts and ideas for shoots and realizing them.
In 2005 P&R entered a competition and were invited to shoot a story for a Dutch fashion magazine. Soon after they started shooting editorials for both national and international magazines.
Their search for adventure, culture, emotions and experiences drives them to travel the world and shoot.

I wanna pierce all over my face!!!! lol

                          Amazing how beautiful can someone  look with all that piercing! so punk chic!
