Miranda Kerr in 3D For Vogue Italia

Miranda Kerr is an unavoidable fashion presence these days. Not only is she mainstream glossy tabloid fodder for her recently-announced pregnancy (the father is Orlando Bloom , if you seriously haven’t heard), she’s leading the pack of Victoria’s Secret models making the move to more editorial work. So what…

LIKE A VIRGIN: OUR LITTLE ROCK AND ROLL QUEEN LOURDES LEON

LIKE A VIRGIN: OUR LITTLE ROCK AND ROLL QUEEN LOURDES LEON

By what I can remember at the age of thirteen my biggest fashion statement was seductively living through my very boy-crazy school uniforms… times we do not speak of… but now thanks to thirteen year olds such as Lourdes Leon who also vicariously lives through her alter ego’s name LOLA, and who has already snagged her first magazine cover for Quality June 2010, she has forever changed tweeny style, but as Madonna’s daughter how could you not expect such sweet things in her young life. Her twistedly wicked style has lead her to become another blogger to add to the list… this is what assures us that the wonderous world of blogging is still getting a bit more bizzare. Leon’s blog ironically began with the idea for Macy’s department store line Material Girl, perhaps no punn intended but I highly doubt that. Her blog is witty, hilarious, and a bit on the gothic side… with her every so often My Chemical Romance love letters. Though the very best part of it all, is all of her fashion inspirations wrapped up in one. This girl from my point of view is going to be beyond the definition of “when superstar’s children go wild”… perhaps expecting this child to let my party girl Lindsey retire peacefully from all tabloid fronts. You could say Leon’s style can be described as a mixture of a young Cory Kennedy, with a twist of her mother’s glam genes. Until further notice the world of fashion is creepishly keeping their eyes on this golden child… as we all expect even more baby gaga inspired duds to addictivly hit.

Courtney Love Is Mom Of The Year

Courtney Love Is Mom Of The Year

While it’s not explicitly or all that implicitly stated, Courtney Love had some sort of kooky diatribe about her daughter whose 18th birthday is less than a week away, revealing details of a life that must be hard enough without a father but harder still with a sudden fashionista mom who’s pretty well known for showing her cooter:

“…A 17 year-old getting $40,000 a month is outrageous to me…She lives with her nanny, and Grandma Wendy and Kim Kurt Cobain’s mother and sister live two doors down, but there’s no drug testing going on…It’s enough money to kill her, if she is doing drugs, enough money to be gone by the time she’s 22.”

Love’s gott know, based on experience, but still, really? Hopefully the quote is out of context because otherwise it’s more than a little kooky. Let the girl enjoy her birthday in peace. Bring out the dirt for Thanksgiving or Christmas like other families.

Paris Street Fashion Stuff #6

The Lady and the Bag…by: Benjamin Kanarek

Paris Street Fashion Stuff #6

A sunny calm and perfect day in Paris. Just wanted to take a walk and as I was just turning left towards Place Abbesses in the 18th District, I spot two girls and an older more sophisticated woman with
them. As it turns out the girl featured in this shot was her daughter.
I told them about my little feature and asked if I could take a snap
shot. I forgot to get her name, but hope she e-mails me and tell me,
so I can add it later to this post. Her total look including her boots
is all Sandro Paris. Her black shoulder bag is Givenchy.

Decorate Your Space: Paper Lanterns

I’ve always adored all types of paper lanterns, and I’ve been trying to find the perfect spot in my apartment to hang some. I’ve been going back and forth between over my head or in my workspace. This morning I saw this girl’s workspace and instantly fell in love. The use of the vintage Chinese lanterns makes her desk area look extra dreamy and filled with so much inspiration. I’d absolutely love to do something similar, but I think I’m still leaning towards hanging them over my bed. I guess we shall see. . .

Tall Shoes for All Occcasions…

Tall Shoes for All Occcasions... It does not matter if you’re meeting a friend for lunch or walking around the streets going to work. 10 out of 10 girls will get more of a reaction from the He’s of the world if you wear heels/wedges with some height. This statistic is based upon a research project recently conducted by He. The evidence is clear, “The higher the heel, the hotter the girl.” The science proves it. He will not listen to arguments proving otherwise.

Here’s my mannequin from the Charlotte Russe Mannequin Style-off

charlotte russe mannequin style-off event with Lela Luxe, Micah Jesse, Teen Vogue, Nylon, the daily fashionista,  poshglam, ask melissa, PS I Made This
Me in front of the nude mannequins, which are about to be tackled by some fierce stylist bloggers

It was an amazing day on Wednesday, when Lela Luxe competed against other celebrity fashion bloggers from New York City and California in the Charlotte Russe Mannequin Style-Off.  We each got to style our mannequin in less than 10 minutes after having ravaged through Charlotte Russe's Fall 2010 closet for another 7.  The entire event was hosted by the oh-so fabulous celebrity stylist Derek Warburton of Derek Loves Shopping. He helped us forget how hot it was, kept catty fights at bay and the atmosphere fun and “wow.”

We were each given a specific theme and we used that as a guide when going through the clothes at 100 mph.  Mine was “THE FIRST CLASS TRAVELER.”

here is Lela Luxe look from charlotte russe mannequin style-off event with PoshGlam, the daily fashionista, Micah Jesse, Teen Vogue, Nylon

So it's the fall, and my girl has to hop on a plane first class in a comfy, layered look.  I believe that just because you're travelling, there's no need to look like you just woke up.  So my girl sported a soft red plaid shirt, a green military inspired skirt, and sexy (and comfy) brown strappy heels (these aren't stilettos), they are cute short 1 1/2″ heels everyone will be raving about this fall.

The entire look came together with a soft olive hat and a grey handbag which has a brown handle and the chicest feminine ruffles which ties in perfectly with the jacket.

This look has one of my favorite color combinations, red and green. It also incorporates one of the most fun rules in styling–combining two different patterns (plaid and florals, in this case) while matching the color (reds).

This girl represents style.  She doesn't like to look back 5 or 10 years from now and look dated.  She loves timeless, classic fashion that will embrace her style and not fads. You'll get to see the full image on CharlotteRusse.com.  Hope you love it!

Lela Luxe is going up against some big names and would really love your support.  If you want Lela Luxe to win, please head over to CharlotteRusse.com and vote for Lela Luxe!  Not only will you be representing the classiest of fashion looks, but you'll be supporting one of your favorite blogs! Thank you to everyone who tuned into the live streaming of the mannequin face-off !
