Isabel Lucas: Hipster

I first didn't know who Isabel Lucas was, just that she took Megan Fox's part in Transformers 3.  I decided the other day to look this lady up! It turns out she is quite fashionable, beautiful, and talented!

Isabel is an Australian actress who has also starred in Daybreakers, The Pacific, and suprisingly enough The Cove.  The Cove I recommend to everyone. So go out and rent it if you have not seen it yet and are passionate about animals!

Besides from being a talented actress Isabel is fashionable.  Very down to earth, her style reminds me of laid-back hipster.  I have included some of the photos I liked the most of Isabel and I hope you guys like them too!!

Thank you all for reading, commenting and following! You guys make me smile :)

Movie Review: Black Swan

I went to the theatre to see Black Swan on Monday evening.  I went alone which was actually quite nice!  The movie is 1h50 min and stars Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Barbara Hershey and Winona Ryder.  At first I did not know what to expect...Natalie Portman is one of my favorite actresses, and when I heard that this was one of her more risky and provacative performances I had to go see it!

The movie is about a young ballerina in the New York City ballet who is names Nina (played by Natalie Portman) who is trying to finally get a lead role in a show.  She tries her very hardest to get the Swan Queen role in Swan Lake.  Swan Lake has two swans, a white and a black swan.  Nina had everything to be the white swan but was trying to be more "in touch" with her black swan.  This is where Mila Kunis comes into play, she is Nina's competition for the role as Lily (Mila Kunis) is already very much in touch with her dark side.   This phychological thriller is very dark, sexual, and ,in its own way, violent.

I would tell you to watch it for sure! I enjoyed it, and it was not at all what I was expecting! Natalie and Mila both did a terrific job in it!

I have included below the trailer for the film, photos, Natalie Portman's photos from Elle and Vogue, and Mila Kunis's photos from Nylon.

Enjoy :) Thank you for reading, commenting and following! xoxo

Fashion Muse: Elisa Sednaoui

Elisa Sednaoui, a stunningly beautiful twenty-something Italian model turned actress.  She is known as being Karl Lagerfeld's muse and just the fact that her Godfather is Christian Louboutin , the shoe designer famous for her red soled shoes, is enough to make people turn heads.

Elisa is a wonderful fashionista, no doubt because of her upbringing and career in the fashion industry as a well-known model.  Elisa has modelled for Coach, H&M, Betsey Johnson, DVF...and many more. She is currently the face of Diesel and DVF. Elisa also appeared in Karl Lagerfeld's short film "Remember Me"

Check out some of my favorite campaigns with Elisa in them, and some of her fashion choices I believe to be very stylish :) There is also a surprise video of her as well!!!

Enjoy!

Movies to watch for Fashion Inspiration

We all love sitting down with some sweets or something salty and delicious and watching a good chick flick.  Why not watch some movies and get some real Fashion Inspiration?  I found over the years that if i see a character in a movie wearing a certain trend or item, and it looks great, I am bound to want to try it out myself!

As the days get colder, and all you want to do is stay in with a hot chocolate and a blanket, why not watch a movie to inspire you?:)

Find your comfy spot on the couch ladies and gents, and watch some of these movies!! If you have seen them already then tell me what you think about them.  What did you like the best?

My Favorite Pieces from Lanvin for H&M

The fashion world has been waiting to see this delicious collaboration.  Lanvin and H&M!!  The womens line itself has more than 30 pieces and over a dozen accessories.  Lanvin and H&M hit H&M stores in late November and consists of tons of ruffled dresses, outerwear, shoes and accessories.  I do not have an H&M nearby that has the Lanvin for H&M line, which is very sad to me.  I hope that i can make a road trip somewhere so i can pick up that gorgeous yellow ruffled dress and the leopard heels!!

I am jealous of you readers if you have had a chance to visit the store and see the pieces in person!!  What did you like the best?  Did you buy any items?

I have some photos and a video of the line to show you, for those who have not had a chance to enjoy it yet!!

Thank you for your wonderful comments and please remember to follow me, and I will follow you you back :)

Much love

Model Behaviour: Kate Moss

Kate Moss was discovered at the ripe age of 14 at an airport in New York City, and went on to be a supermodel.  She is known for her modelling work and being a fashion icon.  She started the well known "Heroin Chic" trend we all know and love.  In recent years Kate has made denim cutoff shorts, uggs, ballet flats, skinny jeans and the iconic Alexander McQueen scarf legendary.  She recently brought blazers and ankle boots back into popularity.  Moss has modelled  in campaigns for Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, Versace, Calvin Klein, Chanel, Missoni, Dior, Burberry, Rimmel...and the list goes on and on.  She is definately someone to look up to for a unique sense of style!  There is a collection of clothes designed by Moss exclusively for the Topshop chain.  Moss is a fashion designer, model, and style icon. All I can say is wow... Check out some of my favorite photos of Moss and you will see why she is the talk of the fashion town. xoxo
