Mary-Kate And Ashley Olsen Twins Make’s ‘Vogue Magazines’ Best Dressed

10 Nov

As anyone who’s ever permanently “borrowed” a pair of ankle boots from her sister can attest, there’s no better partner-in-wardrobe-crime and closet collaborator than a sister–and this year, Vogue‘s best dressed list honors the stylish duos who share DNA with a list that consists strictly of sister acts.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen top the list, a choice that makes me giddy but I’m sure will cause a few raised eyebrows. The rest of the chic siblings?


- Dakota and Elle Fanning

- Claire, Virginie, Jenna and Prisca Courtin-Clarins (you probably haven’t heard of them yet, but you soon will–they are all over the Paris fashion scene and dressed to kill!)

- Ruby and Lily Aldridge

- Poppy and Cara Delevigne

- Bianca and Coco Brandolini

- Beyoncé and Solange Knowles

- Charlotte Gainsbourg and Lou Doillon

- Pippa and Kate Middleton

- Kate and Rooney Mara

Surprise, surprise, there’s not a Kardashian in sight! I also thought Sienna and Savannah Miller would make the list, but otherwise I think their choices are pretty spot-on. What do you ladies think? Check out all of the photos at Vogue.com, then tell us…could you and your sister land on a list like this? Are you guys known for being super-stylish siblings? Discuss! Read More Vogue…..

Jimmy Choo Re-Issuing ‘The Feather Shoe’ Worn In Sex In The City By Carrie Bradshaw

13 Oct Jimmy-Choos-Feathered-Shoe-100232

London-based luxury shoe brand Jimmy Choo are celebrating their 15th birthday by re-issuing a range of iconic shoes and a coffee table book, with proceeds from sales going to charity.

Amongst the range of 15 shoes from the Choo archives are ‘the Feather’, a pair which Carrie famously lost in the early episodes of Sex and the City, and ‘Fleur’, a pair of striped heels embellished with a large flower which Jimmy Choo co-founder Tamara Mellon wore when she received her OBE from the Queen. Mellon told WWD: “These are shoes that have a personal story for me, or resonate with the customer.”

Ten percent of proceeds from the ‘Icons’ shoes will go to the Jimmy Choo Foundation, a charity which tackles women’s issues such as sexism, domestic violence and the sex slave trade.

A coffee table book of Jimmy Choo’s history will accompany the classic shoes, as well as a mainly photographic book called ‘Jimmy Choo XV’ that tells the company’s history through 15 iconic shoes. 100 percent of the proceeds from the book will go to the Jimmy Choo Foundation.

The Icons collection and Jimmy Choo history books are set to hit stores in November.

Mother To Be Beyonce’s Pregnancy Has Inspired Her To Do A Maternity Line

13 Oct Beyonce-Pregnancy-Fashion-WeekA

Beyonce says her pregnancy has inspired her to do a maternity line.

The singer, who is expecting her first child with husband Jay-Z, told Harper’s Bazaar magazine that she’s working on a collection for her House of Dereon line.

“All I see now are clothes that are flattering on a pregnant woman,” she said in the interview. “It’s been so exciting for me! I love figuring out designs that still make me feel edgy and sexy while pregnant.”

“Flowy fabrics are always flattering,” she added, “but I still rock my stilettos.”

The singer also talked about revealing her pregnancy at the MTV Video Music Awards in August, calling it “the hardest red carpet I ever did.”

“I didn’t want a crazy picture or gossip story to break the news,” she said. “So I decided to say nothing and proudly show my baby bump. I felt it was more powerful to see the love and enthusiasm as opposed to saying anything.”

Beyonce recently told Australia’s “Sunday Night” news program that she’s due in February. That appearance also stirred speculation about her pregnancy – her dress appeared to fold in when she sat down on the show, leading some to question whether she was wearing a prosthetic baby bump while a surrogate carried her child. A rep for the singer told ABC News that the rumors are “stupid, ridiculous and fake.”

The Kardashian Sister’s Recently Collaborated On A ‘Kollection’ For US Store Sears

27 Sep Kim-Khloe-Kourtney-Kardashian-Sears-Kollection-Cerritos-200323A

The Kardashians are one clan who are closer than your average siblings. They share their lives, their jobs and now, their wardrobes. Is it time for a bit of sibling rivalry in the family?

Kim, Khloe and Kourtney recently collaborated on a ‘Kollection‘ for US store Sears, and it seems the sisters have decided the best way to gain publicity for the brand is to, well, wear it themselves.

All three socialite sisters have been seen out in at least two outfits from their new Kollection, the first being a lace look compromising a long-sleeved lace top with an oversized silky pussybow teamed with a silky lace-edged skirt.

Kourtney chose to wear the nude version to the launch party of the Kardashian Kollection in LA. Looking lady-like, she added black T-bar heels and swept her locks up. Khloe also went for the demure nude coloring, and also chose black heels, but left her locks natural and flowing and swapped the black bow for a slinky champagne color.

Kim was the odd one out here, opting for the dramatic ensemble in black and adding a dash of color with a green bag and snakeskin heels.

  • About Temperley

    Temperley London celebrates its 10th anniversary year in 2011 with its namesake creative director, Alice Temperley, MBE, heading up the House of Temperley with a design signature that has made her one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary British fashion.

    Alice Temperley’s timeless, feminine designs combine meticulous detail and embellishments with an English eccentricity and personality drawing on everything British; Temperley is the modern day ‘Cool Britannia’.

    Following the success of the launch collection in 2000 at London Fashion Week, the first Temperley London boutique opened in 2001 on Colville Mews in Notting Hill, London where the head office and design rooms are still situated.

    This year sees the first year anniversary of ALICE by Temperley, a contemporary sister line created to fulfill a need for an everyday Temperley look in a more accessible market.

  • Bridal has grown to be an important part of the Temperley offering after the first bridal dresses were created following Alice’s own wedding to Lars Von Bennigsen, the CEO of Temperley Ltd, in 2002. There are now exclusive Bridal Salons in the London Mews and Los Angeles, Melrose Avenue stores with a full bridal collection of bespoke, made-to-order and current collection pieces, for private appointments only.

    The House of Temperley has also expanded into lifestyle with Temperley scented candles and has plans to move into homewear, menswear and childrenswear.

    The House produces 13 collections a year including; Cruise and Pre-Fall across the Temperley London and diffusion ALICE by Temperley line and 2 made-to-order bridal collections a year and key collaborations with leading British names such as the launch of Barbour Gold Label by Temperley in 2011.

  • The company operates 3 stand alone stores in London, Los Angeles and Dubai, and online stores for both lines at: temperleylondon.com and alicebytemperley.com. The lines are also currently available in over 200 doors across 35 countries worldwide.

    The past ten years have earned the House of Temperley critical acclaim and devoted fans around the world, dressing Royalty to the red carpet. Amongst many others, Temperley London fans include; Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Pippa Middleton, Demi Moore, Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum, Reese Witherspoon and Claudia Schiffer. ALICE by Temperley has been worn by a range of fans including Emma Watson, Jessica Biel, Beyonce, Rihanna and Dakota Fanning.

  • While constantly being expanded in breadth, the House of Temperley always stays true to its philosophy; appreciating what women want with creations that exist outside of the trend of the moment and always flavoured with a sense of Alice’s individual ‘magpie’ style.

    The World of Temperley and its design philosophy is set to extend its influence, transforming it from one of Britain’s leading luxury brands to an all-encompassing lifestyle.

Fashion Show: Shop Dolce Gabbana Summer Collection 2012 Online ‘Must Haves’

23 Sep Dolce-Gabbana-SS12-Must-Haves-800515

Photos Dolce Gabbana


If you could distil the D&G SS12 Womens wear show what essence would you get? Foulard’s. These traditional, sometimes oldy-worldly accessories have been totally reinvented by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana and have become sexy and relevant once again.

The D&G collection for SS 12 is a real plethora of prints. From geometric to heraldic, from baroque to naïf, passing by polka dolts and stripes, the foulard, in its many forms has been adopted by the design duo and reinvented for 2012. With the idea of deconstructing the typically bourgeois silk handkerchief and challenging its traditional use, Dolce and Gabbana have created a significant collection with strong cultural overtones.

Taking the foulard in its purest form, (each swatch measures the traditional 70x70cm), as the foundation of the collection, the Italian design duo have created a visual feast. Unlike previous collections where mix and matching were at their centre, this season the effect is less like patchwork and more about actually tying together multiple handkerchiefs, lending it a more cerebral feel. Details like folds and knots take the collection away from the banal, giving it a fresh angle.

Worthy of particular mention are the sky-high platform wedges. The upper is made of an entire foulard; 70×70, which tied around the foot becomes a silky, light as a feather peep toe bootie. In contrast, the wedge is made of wood and is printed with a different style.  Dolce Gabbana.IT
