So one post just was not enough.

Last night Taraji looked absolutely amazing on the red carpet; before later taking to the stage with her cast mates, winning (in every aspect) and giving a memorable, emotional and inspiring acceptance speech! Wearing a powder pink Reem Acra, New York original, Taraji looked stunning as she had a strong and sassy ora about her, a radiant glow and showed off her new hair cut at the SAG Awards. Complete with minimal jewellery and what looks like, no accessories; Ms Henson rocked the see-through, hand embellished gown with more than just a touch of class.

Inspired by ancient traditions and the Sicilian Cart, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have created a special Sicilian Carretto eyewear collection. With only 100 numbered pieces, the mixture of both optical and sun glasses have been individually crafted by hand; representing the definition of “One of a Kind”; as no two glasses have been decorated the same – making each one completely unique!

Made from canaletto walnut, each frame has been delicately hand-painted with images, symbols and iconography of Sicilian folk culture and history of the Italian island’s famous artistic mode of transport; the Sicilian Cart! Just like the original Sicilian Carretto, every one of the 100 limited edition pieces in the special eyewear collection, reflects Sicily’s tradition and culture through the ample use of of bright colours, multiple layers of paint, Carretto motifs and a great attention to detail!

Personally, I think this is amazing! Dolce and Gabbana have out done themselves in terms of creative inspiration, but on this occasion I have to compliment  the artists/decorators for the precision, time consumption and delicate craftsmanship. The results are truly beautiful. I only wish I could afford a pair and be one of the lucky 100! The pieces from this special eyewear collection are definitely collectable pieces, worth treasuring. Like any high-end limited edition fashion piece, I’m sure these glasses will increase in value and be considered a stylish investment!

…I love, love, love, this Chanel quilted lambskin backpack in classic black. These days I’ve been obsessed with backpacks and this Chanel checks all the boxes. Granted, it is a little on the large side, but I’m not complaining- I mean how can you not love it?!

The perfect combination of streetwear and high fashion, this is not your average drawstring bag; this is where sportswear meets fashion and I cannot get enough!

The lambskin leather backpack is designed in reflection of your traditional drawstring bag, featuring a quilted leather flap, finished with Chanel’s signature CC closure clasp and classic gold chain straps. There are also two open pockets on the back and the inside is lined with black fabric! I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again; how can you not love it?

 

 

…Last night’s 73rd Golden Globes Awards saw many celebrities take the red carpet in an array of fabulous designers. The females in particular stole the show and looked amazing in their various gowns. It seems white was pretty popular and came in a handful of styles, cuts and and necklines.

Lily James and Saoirse Ronan looked oh so elegant as they glided across the red carpet in their flowy floor length gowns with nipped in high-waists. James wore Marchesa while Ronan wore Yves Saint Laurent. Also in couture Saint Laurent, Jane Fonda looked fabulous in an all white (accessories included) figure hugging long sleeved gown, finished off with some questionable ruffles. Alicia Vikander also flaunted some ruffles;  but in a much smaller degree; as they delicately embellished the neckline of her Louis Vuitton apron gown. Last but not least, and the sexiest of them all; both Eva Longoria and Taraji kept it simple and stylish in sexy-sophisticated, figure hugging floor length gowns. Taraji wore all Stella McCartney (teeny tiny Falabella bag included) with a boob-tube cut and classy cape. Whereas, Longoria wore a Georges Hobeika conservative dress, hand embellished at the hips/ neckline and finished with an elegant front slit.

Capes are certainly in this season and were seen worn by many women last night in colours beyond white. However out of the gorgeous white gowns below, half of them were accompanied by matching capes; completing each look and making the women all the more stunning! #Capes

I think we can all agree that Jennifer Lopez looked amazing last night at this year’s Golden Globes. I wouldn’t naturally consider yellow for an evening gown, however Jlo certainly proved me wrong, as she pulled it off!

Wearing a caped Giambattista Valli haute couture gown and 200 carats of diamonds in accessories, Lopez looked absolutely stunning. As well as her choice of wardrobe, Jlo’s hair and makeup was on point; simple, elegant and drop-dead-gorgeous!

Amongst those trending across the runway at New York Fashion Week is the pencil cut skirt with a split. Remaining at a respectable hight, the split works. Going for the chic casual look, AW15/16 ready-to-wear is defiantly something I can get on board with. Naturally, I love the orange skirt by ICB (guilty); not only because obviously its orange but the off-centre split is much more appealing, plus the mini skirt under layer, come-lining adds a certain depth to the skirt as a whole. Worn by the model quite casually, the structured skirt can also be dressed up with a change in top, shoes and accessories. #Love

Tibi and CC Chris Gelinas also went with the more casual look compare to both Altuzarra and Brandon Sun who went for slightly dressier alternatives. For me, Tibi’s cream/nude emsemble was a close second contender after ICB. Pairing the off-white leather skirt with a cream wooly jumper is definitely a look I can’t wait to see hit the streets come AW 15/16. The thick collar that borders on ‘polo neck’ is what stands out most for me. The Gelinas skirt in light khaki is also favourable. Its a slightly less fitted cut compare to the others nevertheless, it works. Personally, I wouldn’t have paired it with those socks or shoes and perhaps a cream blouse instead; but simply as a pencil skirt with a split; I like it. The latter however, I can not say the same for.  To me, the styling behind both the Brandon Sun and Altuzarra designs could have been executed better.

 

Observant to all things fashion and even more so to all things Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld; I spotted this random, unique and somewhat quirky representation of Lagerfeld in Harrods. However, due to his distinctive look and signature trademarks (white hair, huge black sunglasses, a dark suit and high-neck structured white collar) i’m sure most people noticed and were equally intrigued by the furry bubblehead on a chain. As unusual as it is, I quite like it -so of course I had to snap it. For such a strong, stern and almost scary (well, intimidating) fashion icon, this keyring/ handbag chain is rather cute and perhaps if it was slightly bigger, it might just boarder cuddly too!
