My life is pretty hectic right
now so I feel that wearing something fun helps my mood. What I also found is
that wearing a short skirt moves things along faster sometimes. And because I
know you have dirty minds, let me just clarify: I’m talking about people being
nicer than usual.
I wanted this hat for ages but I
postponed ordering it due to my preconception it wouldn’t look good on me. I
also have a big head (I suspect that it has to be like that for all my brain to fit
in :)))) and that was a worry too.
That being said, I love it and
feel it looks cool with a huge pair of chandelier earrings. No worries, my ears
weren’t harmed in the process although this is officially the biggest pair of
chandelier earrings I own. It's going to be hard to top these!:)
As for the spiked hoodie, I had
to have it – we’re talking white tiger here that’s like my spirit animal.
sister said I should ask you for suggestions of what I could have added to make
this look even more hipster(ish) ? :))) She lives to lovingly mock me!:)))
Cara Delevingne is the British
model that everyone is talking about right now. In recent months I have heard
and seen more and more of her as she is making her way to the top of the
fashion world. Besides at least 50% of all Tumblr photos are photos of her.:)))
I remembered Cara from her days
as an Asos model - even then she caught my eye. She has one of those unforgettable
faces – a natural blonde with incredible, light green eyes and dark caterpillar
eyebrows, the perfect contrasts – a strange, almost hypnotizing beauty. And, as
it turns out, important designers agree as she is now strutting her stuff on
every big runway out there.
She began her modeling career
when she was 17 and she’s now 20 years old. Her debut runway show was for
Clements Ribeiro during spring 2012 at London Fashion Week. After that it was the
Burberry show in New York and they liked her so much that she ended up as the
new face of the fashion house.
That's why Cara Delevingne walked almost exclusively for Burberry and Burberry Prorsum
for spring summer 2012 but the next season she was everywhere from Chanel,
Stella McCartney, Cacharel to Sonia Rykiel, DKNY, Dolce & Gabbana and more.
You may also
remember Cara being part of Victoria's
Secret fashion show in 2012. And all of this work didn’t go unnoticed as British
Vogue described her as the "star face" of the autumn/winter 2012-2013
show season. She was also ranked #25 on models.com's 50 Top Models and won
Model Of The Year 2012 at the British Fashion Awards.
And let’s not
forget about the small part she played inAnna Karenina, as Princess Sorokina,
the marriage interest of Count Vronsky who was played by the amazing Aaron
Taylor-Johnson whom I love.
It’s also rumored she almost got the role of
Éponine in Les Misérables but in the end Samantha Barks landed the
Right now Cara
Delevingne is the face of Chanel's Resort 2013 campaign and is booked for every
major show in the Fashion Week Circuit.
Besides modeling and acting Cara Delevingne
is interested in music as well and it’s been said Simon Fueller (the "Pop
Idol"/"American Idol" creator) it’s set on transforming her into
a pop sensation.
This last year she also graced
the cover of some of the most prestigious fashion magazines: Vogue, Love, British
Vogue, Harper's Bazaar's, Numero.
was a busy bee and I’m sure that’s going to escalade, the fashion world always
ends up going crazy for some girl and this is pretty much the case now.
It helps that
she is a London socialite. Cara Delevingne is the youngest of three sisters (Cara is 20, Poppy is 26 and Chloe is 28) and was born in rich British family.
Her sister Poppy Delevingne is also a famous British
model and the duo is often seen on red carpets, at music festivals and fashion
weeks and is frequently featured on the party pages of British Vogue and The Telegraph.
In fact the Delevingne sisters are rich, blue- blooded and can compete with the
Middleton sisters as far as the media coverage goes – the gossip columnists
live to write about them.
Cara Delevingne and Poppy Delevingne together in a photoshoot!
Cara is the
granddaughters of former English Heritage boss, Sir Jocelyn Stevens, who also
founded the Caroline radio station, was the director of the London Evening
Standard and later the Daily Express and the proprietor-editor of The Queen
magazine. His first wife Janie Sheffield was lady-in-waiting to Princess
and her sisters had a privileged life from birth living in London's Mayfair
and are friends with the Jaggers and Lily Allen's family. Cara’s godmother, Joan
Collins, even come up with a clever nickname for this three: the ‘Dynasty
Sisters’. Catchy, right?
Apparently they know everybody
and their mother, from royalty to movie and music stars. Chloe has a degree in
biomedical sciences, she is a nightclub entrepreneur and is almost always
included in Britain's most powerful lists, Cara is friends with Princess
Beatrice, Alexa Chung,
Azealia Banks and Poppy used to live with Sienna Miller.
Although they never officially confirmed
(or denied) it Cara Delevingne and One Direction's Harry Styles were causally
dating for a few months last year (they were photographed on a number of dates between
July and September 2012). It’s rumored that she dumped him because her agency/management
team considered this relationship made her an even bigger tabloid target and Styles
was too “low rent” for Cara. I do agree she can do better than Harry Styles (who’s
famously getting over anybody in 5 seconds and can always find a cougar to comfort
him if needed).
I’m not trying to make her seem like an angel here as she has a
reputation for being a party animal and has been see intoxicated in public before (just note she is of legal drinking age in Britain).
She also seem very funny and goofy!
There is no doubt that she has a
great career in front of her, I’m sure her profile is going to rise even higher
this year and her famous entourage is only going to help her get anything she
Cara has her fair share of haters
who think the only reason she made it as a model is herrich family who bought her way into fashion
using either money or all the connections and friendships they have with famous
people. Maybe she started like that (cause let’s be honest thinks do work that way
many times) and got her foot in the door via her parents, but there’s no
denying Cara Delevingne is extremely beautiful and has that special quality
that makes a great model.
And let’s face it- right now Cara Delevingne has it all - she is young, beautiful and rich. She’s the
girl who’s life every teenager out there wants to live. She is the next big thing!
I have nothing interesting to
report so you’ll have to do without my usual words to live by and precious
wisdom snippets. I honestly don’t know how you’re going to make it this week,
but I do have faith in you guys! Hang in there! :)))
As you can see I’m wearing a green
jumpsuit with a brown leather jacket and a loud gold belt! Nothing new under
But what I really love about this
outfit are the metallic toe orange boots! Those are pretty cool!
Oh, yes – the huge
brown bag is not bad either - I can fit a lot of stuff in there and I made a
couple of small images with my favorite Old Hollywood actresses that I’m
changing every time I use it.
This awful winter day I had Miss Ava Gardner to
keep me company ‘cause that’s how I roll! Entourage is everything and I do like to keep the best company!
Our favorite street style muse, Ulyana Sergeenko, has just sent her second
couture collection down the runway. Although slightly off-schedule, her Paris
show held at Theatre Marigny (January 22nd 2013) had astar studded front row: Carine Roitfeld,
Natalia Vodianova, Derek Blasberg, Dita von Teese, Hamish Bowles and an array
of less known Russian socialites and personalities sporting her designs head to
toe and showing their support.
All her collections including this one have a constant
fairytale/royalty feel that’s actually a wholesome extension of Ulyana’s own
style. And while many have said this is going to get old soon, I feel the exact
opposite – her being so true to her own brand and visual identity only shows
how much she believes in it and how she’s in this business of fashion for the
The models turned princesses for a day were literally
stepping out of a life-sized fairytale book down a glittery yellow brick road
inspired runway which perfectly embodied the feel of the entire collection:
Scarlett O’Hara via Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz meets a heroine of eclectic
descent – we had Russian off course, but also British, Mexican, French, Spanish
and even 19th century American influences mixed in.
In fact, this American
princess exploring the prairie was the main thing polishing off every look as
far as I’m concerned. Ulyana Sergeenko Couture Show even had a bit of Salem witches, puritan wives flare
here and there.
this green silk number the most beautiful homage to Scarlett O’Hara’s famous
I don’t know if I’m the only one, but this is the thing that
does it for me when it comes to Ulyana’s collections: the original mix of
regalia elements with national costume details.
I imagine this spoiled princess
bored out of her mind with her overly rich/complicated dresses who decides to
borrow some things from her chamber maid wardrobe to transform herself and go
mix in with the commoners.
The wasp-waisted silhouette with peplum details is again
highlighted and, as in real life, it’s becoming a trademark of Ulyana’s fashion
sensibilities. The floor length skirts have wonderful volumes due to delicate
layers of lace and even beautifully done frills trailing down the runway so
that every modern heroin can feel royal and empowered.
The looks are finished
off with wide brimmed straw hats, fingerless lace gloves, Mexican style knit
shawls and ponchos, lace parasols, small box clutches, head scarves and cute aprons.
I love the Old World nostalgic vibe of everything, the
subdued color palette with eccentric pops of green and red, the mix of sheer
fabrics, silks and heavier tweeds, the subtle prints and the demure bare shoulders – it’s like all of the characters I loved
reading about as a child and teenager have just landed in modern times. And I say "Welcome" to them all and "Can, I please borrow what your wearing?"!
