Celebrity Look of the Week

This picture defines everything that is trending this season and I’m not only talking about the clothing. I’m talking about curvy body, luscious lips, big chest, and skinny legs that are sure to make any outfit wow the crowd. The first piece that catches our eyes is the big, chunky belt that helps hold up her leather miniskirt. A white tank and vintage-style jacket help create a more casual look. To top it off, we get Yeezy calf-high boots that scream 2016. Natural makeup and beachy waves add to the sophisticated yet easygoing vibe. The way that the outfit is put together causes the viewer to see every piece on its own and then put it all together. There is a perfect balance between the pieces and the jean jacket connects them all. The top, skirt, and shoes are items that can be worn over and over by simply changing the accessories or jacket to either dress yourself up or down. The styles we are seeing the most of these days are simple, versatile outfits with pieces that hug and show off our bodies. Let’s call them investment pieces; a neutral pair of classic boots with a twist, a simple tank or bodysuit, and a leather mini that is perfect for year round fashion statements.

You’d be darned to find a day of the year as prestigious as the first Monday of May. First held in 1948, the Met Gala, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, was founded to encourage donations from New York’s high society and today the most recognisable faces from fashion, art, music and film gather to raise money for the Met’s Costume Institute and commemorate the opening of the museums latest exhibition. Founded by Eleanor Lambert, Anna Wintour has taken reign of the event since 1995, raising almost $175 million and enlisting the most prominent names to co-chair the events including the likes of Beyonce, Pharrell Williams, Marc Jacobs and Gisele Bundchen. The 2018 Met Gala, which also marks the 70th anniversary of the soiree will be co-chaired by Amal Clooney, Rihanna and Donatella Versace and sponsors include Apple, Condé Nast, Farfetch, H&M, Maison Valentino and Warner Bros.

The 80s were a fabulous time in fashion. Across the fashion capitals, structured shoulders, bodysuits and sequins were amongst some of the biggest and wildest trends commanding centre stage. While all of that was happening, somewhere, under the warm Californian sun, Shawn Stüssy was somewhere printing t shirts with the same signature that appeared on his surfboards. Probably little did he know that decades later his printed trademark signature on simple graphic tees would decades later play a part in streetwear becoming one of the most lucrative fashion business models of the 21st century. 

When rumours began swirling on the internet earlier this year that Rihanna was to expand her empire by adding a lingerie line, things just haven’t been the same since. Rihanna in typical fashion teased her upcoming lingerie line Savage x Fenty (coincidently national lingerie day, who could have guessed?!) on Instagram captioning ‘Errrday #NationalLingeRIHday! Getchur coins ready for May 11th! #SavageXFenty drops worldwide Xclusively on!’ and quite frankly our coins have never been more ready.
