Emma Watson Slays The Elegant Look With Timeless Black Dress

With the premiere of the highly anticipated live-action Disney film “Beauty and the Beast” set to be released on March 17, Emma Watson has been keeping busy promoting her upcoming film.
The 26-year-old, who plays Disney Princess Belle in the film, has been making numerous red carpet appearances and we can’t deny that she always seems to outdo herself with every event!

We’ve seen the actress dress up in edgy looks to a more elegant style, and we’ve loved every look! Gracing the red carpet on Monday night in New York City for the screening of “Beauty and the Beast”, was Watson in an elegant Givenchy gown accessorized with Eva Fehren jewelry.

Looking ever so timeless, Watson’s gown had a high slit front sheer paneling, and a big bow and train.

As much as we cannot wait for “Beauty and the Beast” to hit theaters, we are enjoying every single minute of Watson’s press tour and red carpet appearances.

Looking to Copy Model Sarah Snyder’s Style? It Starts With the Denim

Sarah Snyder has had quite the year. The model and teenage social media star first came onto the scene thanks to a hot-and-heavy relationship with Jaden Smith and a kerfuffle with a Birkin bag, but she’s also made a name for herself courtesy of a double tap–worthy style comprised of vintage designer pieces and sold-out Supreme garb. But apart from the ever-expanding collection of Supreme hoodies and vintage Moschino, Snyder also has a covetable rotation of bad taste–meets–good taste denim. The social media personality effortlessly pulls off pieces like half-leopard-print skinnies, the celebrity-beloved lace-up jean as well as throwback low-slung grommeted pairs.

Want to get the denim-with-a-bite look? For those who dare, think about mixing and matching patterns like Snyder does, such as a pair of distressed animal-print skinny jeans with a cheeky track jacket. Those with a more subdued style could opt for a more monochromatic look, like black lace-up jeans and a plain black sweater. For a hint of downtown glamour, bedazzled white flares and a fur jacket is a stellar combo. And remember: A devil-may-care attitude à la Snyder is a great finishing touch for any ensemble.

5 of the Most Popular Spring Fashion Trends

Spring is upon us which means it’s time to store those knitted sweaters and down-filled coats and break out the lighter clothing.
To make sure that you’re looking best for the spring, we’ve compiled some of the most popular spring fashion trends from the fashion runways across the world. Here are 5 trends that we’re looking forward to rocking.

1. Floral Patterns

Nothing says spring like flowers! There’s a reason that floral patterns never go away, they always remain a style staple no matter the season. Fashion runways included dresses covered in flowery patterns so time for you to bring those dresses out of the closet.

2. Over-sized Trench Coat

The trench coat has remained a style staple in the closets of the fashionable for decades. If you’re looking to upgrade the state of your closet, time to upgrade the look of your trench to one that is over-sized, with the use of billowy sleeves or make use of asymmetry. Guard yourself from those spring showers in style!

3. Use of Neutral Tones

All winter long you’ve been rocking the all black everything look, but now that the sun is shining it’s time to switch that look for something else. Now you’re going to want to wear neutral tones of a lighter variety, such as off-white or cream. Embrace more color!

4. Sheer Tops

For those who love to layer up but hate the amount of warmth that brings in, worry not, that’s what sheer tops are for! Sheer tops help to add more range to your outfits, or even show off more skin. They’re a great way to experiment with the layering of different kinds of clothing without getting too hot.

5. Slip-on Shoes

Now that the snow has melted you can trade in those bulky boots for more comfortable footwear. No longer do you need to wear those multi faceted shoes, make life easier with shoes that you can easily slip on and off, that work great for the office and can still wear to those outings for drinks on the patio.

Emily Ratajkowski’s Jaw Dropping Wardrobe Malfunction

It’s a doozy alright.
You know that feeling when you put on a dress and it makes you feel so good you just want to dance around in it? Yes, we have all had it, albeit infrequently.
Well, it turns out that even celebrities are susceptible to the happy dress dance, however, not all gown are up for the two step jive.

In case you missed it, Emily Ratajkowski walked this year’s Golden Globes red carpet wearing the most beautiful floor-length, canary yellow Reem Acra gown and left a slew of dropped jaws in her wake.
But by the time Em made it to the after party she was keen to show off just how beautiful her dress was.
In between flipping the silky fabric this way and that, Em must have become a little too caught up in the moment because she accidentally flashed her underwear to everyone in sight.

Despite the awkward mishap, Em still managed to look absolutely incredible, proving that even an epic wardrobe malfunction isn’t necessarily the end of the world.

4 Fundamental Music Festival Style Tips

The sun is shining longer and the weather’s starting to warm up which means that the music festival season is upon us. You want to show up in style, but at the same time you want to be as comfortable as possible. Here are some style tips that we have compiled to help get you ready for the season.

Ensure Comfortability

Whether it’s dancing the night away or moving from stage to stage, you’re going to be on your feet for hours at a time without rest. Depending on which festival you’re going to the grounds are going to be huge, which means you’re going to be doing a lot of steps. As long as you’re wearing the right kind of shoes on your feet, this problem shouldn’t be too much trouble for you.
Try wearing footwear with the minimal amount of heel, or even sneakers of a low-top variety, trust us, it helps vastly.

Don’t Overdo It

Music festivals are all about their mellow vibes, so your outfit should try and reflect that. Don’t try too hard stacking layers on top of layers in your outfit, you’ll either have too much clothing, or look like too much of a try-hard, both things you want to avoid.
A great tip to keep in mind would be to scour thrift stores for anything cool and vintage looking. Experiment with going out of your comfort zone, that’s what it’s all about!

Don’t Forget to Accessorize!

You’re going to be outside for a majority of the time, which leaves you open to the weather changing at any moment, so you’ll want to be prepared. Throw in a hat to match with your outfit, you can use it for multiple functions like shielding you from the rays of the sun or even a momentary shower.
Backpacks and bags may seem unnecessary, but you’ll be thankful that you have something to store extra clothing and accessories in when you’re not using them. Alos, don’t forget those shades as well, you’re going to need them.

Have Fun With Your Outfit

Music festivals are the perfect occasion to switch up your style, so have fun with it and try out outfit combinations that you wouldn’t experiment with on a regular basis.

The Evolution of Style Icon Janelle Monae

Janelle Monáe is no stranger to red carpets. In her decade or so in the public eye, the singer’s red-carpet looks have been limited to black-and-white (with occasional red, yellow, or metallic accents), originally sticking to classic suiting. But with Monáe’s roles in both Moonlight and Hidden Figures making her an awards-season fixture, she and her longtime stylist Maeve Reilly have made some changes. As her career evolves, so too does her style, though the message she adhered to from the beginning remains as clear as her stark palette.
“I mean this in the most humble way possible: I think I have the hardest job of any stylist,” Reilly told Vanity Fair on a recent phone call, nodding to the season-by-season limitations of items that fit Monáe’s restrictions. Reilly has dressed the performer for every event she’s attended for the past four years, and when they started, Monáe was still only wearing suits.
“Now, it’s become easier with dresses and skirts and even just separates—like what she wore [to a recent Hidden Figures screening] in L.A.,” Reilly said, referring to the black-and-white, wide-legged pants she paired with a long-sleeve crop top. “She wouldn’t have worn that four years ago.”

Reilly explained that the palette she works so hard to stick to is an homage to Monáe’s family. “Her parents were blue-collar workers who wore uniforms, and so her tuxedo represented the uniforms that her family wore,” Reilly explained. “Janelle, too. She was a maid before she made music.”
The progression out of strictly menswear was never “a sit-down conversation,” according to Reilly. There was no “I’m going to wear a dress now” moment.
As awards season has progressed, though, from Moonlight’s film festival premieres to the Golden Globes, Monáe’s style has made a larger leap, partly because brands are now reaching out to her and Reilly directly. At the Golden Globes, Monáe will be wearing a custom dress that the pair began working on back in November (Reilly declined to say by whom). Monáe is also becoming more comfortable on the carpet alongside seasoned actors who’ve been doing this for 30 years.

“The music stuff goes edgier, and the acting stuff is still quirky. It’s still fun and interesting and young, but when this is all said and done and we look back at the photos, you’re going to be able to tell when she was at a music event as opposed to when she was at an acting event,” Reilly said.
Monáe’s hair, which has seen the addition of googly eyes, safety pins, and gold wires as of late, is an extension of that whimsy from her musical world, Reilly said, but it also means more by Monáe’s own admission. She captioned a photo of the beauty looks on Instagram, “From the eyes, to the gold wire, and then to the white safety pins . . . Can you guess what messages [Eye emoji] am sending and speaking through my hair?”
With safety pins finding new symbolism following the election of Donald Trump, one might guess a political intent. Her hair stylist, Nikki Nelms, however, recently said that they’re simply a reminder for everyone to “just try and keep it all together.”

Regardless of what specific signals are emanating from her head, Monáe has an entire career spent working within the same coded clothes. She’s found a way to expand and evolve while remaining firmly within her ideals she held from day one. It’s an acrobatic act of perspective that’s rare, and one that’s becoming more and more visible as awards season rolls along.

Victoria Beckham Writes Letter to Her 18 Year Old Self: ‘Celebrate What You’ve Got’

Victoria Beckham has went through a massive style evolution since her days as Posh in the Spice Girls.
Along the way she’s made some interesting choices — and she’s the first to admit some of her looks weren’t the best.
The singer-turned-fashion designer has penned a letter to her 18-year-old self for the latest issue of British Vogue. In the honest piece, Beckham talks about body image and marriage and warns her younger self about some of the more outlandish style choices she’ll make over time — the main one being breast enhancements.
“ … I should probably say, don’t mess with your boobs. All those years I denied it — stupid. A sign of insecurity. Just celebrate what you’ve got,” she wrote in the magazine.

Victoria walks the carpet at the 2007 MTV Movie Awards in Los Angeles.

Beckham, 42, also comforted her younger self about her insecurities.
“Your complexion will sort itself out (in fact you will launch your own make-up brand); as soon as the eighties are over, your perm will die down, and your weight will settle itself,” she wrote. “At school you eat Super Noodles and boxes of Frosties because they say they are fat free, and you will endure many other silly fad diets (including an addiction to green juices). Instead, learn to embrace your imperfections — that is what I want to tell you.”

Victoria, at the height of Spice Girls fame, arrives in Sydney for a 1997 Spiceworld screening.

The designer continued: “Let your skin breathe; wear less make-up. (And don’t ever let that make-up artist shave your eyebrows! The effects last forever.) You will always be addicted to Elnett hairspray but you will tone it down. Less of the ‘Hello! I just got stuck in a wind tunnel’, please.”

Beckham’s style evolution.

Despite her tongue-in-cheek warnings, Beckham added the dramatic looks during her evolution from pop star to fashion icon add “interest” to her life.
“You are going to have so much fun with your clothes — PVC catsuits; chokers that say absurd things; weird spiky blonde hair. It will never occur to you that you appear ridiculous,” she wrote. “You will turn up at awards ceremonies resembling a drag queen. But I look back at you and smile. It will add interest to your life to go from one extreme to another. I love the fact that you will feel free to express yourself.”

She told her younger self that even though she would go on to build a respected fashion empire, she should not become “stifled” by it.
“You will learn, as you mature, to swap heels for Stan Smith trainers, minidresses for crisp white shirts. And you will never be one of those people who just roll out of bed,” she wrote. “Wear sunglasses a lot. Even inside. Especially at airports. They turn a nothing-outfit into something quite pulled together and cool.”

Remembering the time she met her husband David Beckham in the Manchester United players’ lounge, she offered advice on their marriage.
“Have patience. Bite your tongue. Be supportive. And preserve a bit of mystique,” she wrote. “Never let yourself go completely (at least brush your hair, clean your teeth, have a bit of a brow going on because you will always want him to look at you and feel attracted).”

Kim Kardashian West Draws Inspiration From the 80s

It’s been a big week for Kim Kardashian West. After re-emerging on social media and refreshing her website and app, it appears that Mrs. West is changing up her look, too, with a return to girl-boss fashion, ’80s-style. Swapping out her Calabasas track pants for distressed denim, Kardashian West elevated her faded blues with a key piece of retro power dressing: the strong-shouldered jacket.

Taking cues from 1980s shoulder pads, she joins a recent resurgence of designers revisiting Dynasty-era tailoring, including Olivier Rousteing at Balmain and David Koma at Mugler. The retro silhouette was given a sleek, modern makeover thanks to a slim lapel, but it was Kardashian West’s fresh accessorizing—note the lip ring—that lifted the ensemble into the territory of 21st-century CEO chic.

New Unisex Collection From H&M Aims To Break Gender Barriers

Gender means nothing for H&M’s latest unisex denim collection. The clothing brand hopes to break down gender barriers with its Denim United collection.

The international fashion retailer goal through this collection is to create a sustainable and modern clothing line that everyone can wear. In doing so, the company will be blurring the borders that once categorized fashion into men’s fashion or women’s fashion by creating clothing that borrows fabrics and silhouettes from both genders.
Image 20
A spokesperson for the clothing brand, Marybeth Schmitt, stated in a press release that it was only natural that the company create a unisex collection since fashion is always “evolving and intersecting”. She goes on to say that in fashion, there is no boundaries and should be inclusive.
What kind of looks can you expect to see from the collection? From what we have seen so far, the unisex collection will include some oversized pieces, as well as some casual mix-and-match items like jackets, overalls and shorts. All items will be available to consumers in a variety of washes.

Another reason why you should buy clothing from this collection is that the clothing is also environmentally friendly! The materials are made out of organic and recycled cotton. Talk about innovation.
The collection will be made available March 23 with its launched, though for now the items can only be found online at the store’s shop.

Turkish Designer Jailed [BBC News]
Turkish fashion designer Barbaros Sansal, a vocal critic of Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development party, posted an angry video on Twitter on New Year’s Eve criticizing those out celebrating while there is “so much filth, vileness and poverty” in the world. The video was posted shortly before the attack at a Turkish nightclub that killed 39. Sansal, who was vacationing in Cyprus, was made to return to Istanbul, where he was attacked by a mob on the tarmac. He was jailed (at a facility which is also holding several journalists) upon his return for “inciting hatred among the public.” Sansal’s lawyer says he says he fears for his life.
