ADDICT: Orlando Bloom and Aggy for Me & City

ADDICT: Orlando Bloom and Aggy for Me & City

Can you say – AWKWARD? Aggy and Orly are rather odd choices for stars of an ad campaign – especially one that’s for a Chinese label (Me & City) . I’ve actually been the store here in China and the clothes are rather lackluster. Not even a power couple like Miss Deyn and Orlando can make me want their clothes.  Well, its not like there’s any chemistry between them anyway…

COVER: Love Puts Eight Naked Models On Current Cover

COVER: Love Puts Eight Naked Models On Current Cover

First there was two, now there are eight. Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy, Lara Stone, Janeil Williams, Natalia Vodianova, Kristen McMenamy, and Amber Valletta are the naked girls featured on the cover of the latest issue of Love Magazine. Apparently, this was done to prove a point: that all these girls have very different bodies, which is why they also printed their measurements. First of all, comparing Lara Stone’s body to that of 40 year old Naomi Campbell just seems unfair. Second, these ladies are models for a reason, they are all similar in proportions, tall, slender, long legged, with smaller breasts. Third, I might need to get my eyes checked, but in the above covers the girls seem very similar in shape…

What do you guys think?

Fashion Gone Rogue

Why Models Shouldn’t Design. Coco Releases Rococo

Why Models Shouldnt Design. Coco Releases Rococo
Coco Rocha, who I think is awesome and all, decided to wear one of the pieces from her new collection Rococo to the Grammy’s. Big mistake. Love, and I do mean love, cause I really honestly think you’re awesome in so many ways, but please, please, please stick to modeling. More photos after the jump.

Has Celebrity Branding Gone Too Far?

Has Celebrity Branding Gone Too Far?

Celebrity branding is a marketing strategy as old as Julius Caesar’s stamped coins. Masses recognizing superstars catapulted sales of their preferred brands. This interweaving between fashion houses and celebrities is something we grew up with but is it still working? No, not like it used to. Today sophisticated, role modeled celebrities are respected and sought after over the superficial, self-centered ones.

Our world believes in limited resources. Opulence and extravagance are no longer a sign of prestige but seen as insensitive and arrogant. Are we praising Victoria Beckham’s $800,000 Italian shopping spree?  What counts today is the intrinsic value, social and environmental sustainability of our fashion choices. We are becoming responsible and selective. I call this fashion wisdom.

This decade is shifting our focus towards an ethical consumption. Gone is the ‘bling-bling’ era that held its crown for the past 18 years. It has been replaced with a discreet fashion. The logo mania of these past trends is now seen as an eye sore. Gucci, Louis Vuitton, YSL are a few who understand this and carefully designed subdued pieces in their past few collections. Superficial and ostentatious designs are out!

People now care about the small details. Where it is made, how it is made. Fashion wisdom is oozing into the mainstream and it is no longer exclusively about the celebrity. Consumers are taking a more active approach with their purchases. Some fashion houses still try their luck with these types of pretentious and insubstantial celebrities only to have media disasters. Let’s see what Kate Moss will come up with at Longchamp. Lindsay Lohan’s gag reflex fashion show debut for Emanuel Ungaro…

How this woman manages to never age shouldn’t be a mystery. Oh, the joys of the plastic surgeon and photoshop. It’s probably the best time to be entering the model industry, cause you know if you stick to it, you’re career won’t end until you’re 120!!!!
