Coming this fall at a store near you, wide leg & bell-bottom jeans that will suit you up! This is what will be this fall’s trend though on second look, these jeans bear a similar style and look to what our grandparents used to wear. It’s not shameful but amusing and fashionable that the wide leg jeans with bell-bottom are back. Grandmas would love it as well as mums all over.
If you were or are a fan of John Travolta’s look in Saturday Night’s Fever movie then you definitely will fall for these pants. The wide leg and bell-bottom jeans will bring back the classic memories of Ali McGraw in the seventies.
What’s even best with these jeans is that not only will it suit you but it will also suit your mum and your daughter. It looks really good with anything on top. A flowery blouse or a sports singlet is perfect to fit on top.
The Obamas are like America’s new obsession since winning the presidential election; everything they do makes the news, taking a new dog: breaking news. Some time back, a late night show mocked how President Obama dressed for the ‘throwing of the ball’ at the beginning of the football season. They nicknamed his jeans “the O-Mama Jeans”, thankfully afterwards the president dressed better when attending such events.
Most recently, the first lady, Michelle Obama was in Maryland to promote the “Let’s Move” initiative at Camden Yards in Baltimore. And the first lady decided to play a little baseball. Certainly not dressed for the occasion, Michelle Obama still is a sport by hopping on the court in her white jeans and nice blue-white blouse and playing catch.
The Obamas are known to be friendly people so it was no surprise to see the First Lady getting down and dirty with her high heels on. Afterwards, Michelle Obama took the time to meet up with the kids and the MLB players.

As much as this show is provocative, Taylor too has been receiving lots of flak for her weird fashion style and music. Also a singer, this girl is set to make a world of her own in Hollywood. As a matter of fact, many saw a young Madonna in Taylor as Madonna too was wild and provocative in her young days.
Taylor is all set to be the new face of Madonna’s and her daughter, Lourdes, new fashion line. The new fashion line consists of clothes, shoes, jewelry and handbags.

In case you have never heard of Audrina, well worry not as only those familiar with MTV’s The Hills, which is a reality show, will know about this girl. Come to think of it, we only heard about Audrina when catfights broke on the show and the show gained a much needed publicity. Now that the show is over, one of its casts, Miss Patridge got herself another job as the new face of Bongo jeans.
Audrina Patridge is now the face of Bongo Jeans and the former ‘Hills’ star will appear in the ad campaigns starting autumn. Patridge is excited stating that she has never ventured into something like this before. Patridge was very pleased with the photoshoot with renowned photographer, Tony Duran.
Audrina claims that even though she’s the new face of this face, she loves skinny jeans and boot-cut. To go with the new Bongo jeans, Audrina will choose a pair of little flats or heels and not forgetting, an appropriate top.
For women, we tend to have everything for every situation. For example, we would buy the perfect to wear to work. We would buy the perfect dress for summer. We would buy the perfect shoes for a night out. The same goes for shopping. When women shop, they feel it is important to carry the right accessories including the perfect bag, wearing the perfect shoes etc.
Yves Saint Laurent seemed to have notice this need of women as the brand has taken the pain to make a Large Shopping Tote just for the ladies to bring with them when they go shopping.
We think the bag is not only perfect for shopping but it looks good for other activities to like taking your kids to school and many more that you can think of. It’s a very attractive bag and many have said that they find themselves too hard to not buy it even though it’s not made of leather and doesn’t come cheap.
Creating and doing a charity event is like a trend in Hollywood these days. Don’t get us wrong, not that we are opposed the idea, it seems every celebrity wants to show how much they care for the world and its people or for the environment.

Debbie Gibson is not alone in this. As a matter of fact, a couple of her celebrities have come forward to offer a helping hand for this auction. The Only In My Jeans auction will have jeans that are signed by her celebrities friends consisting of the Desperate Housewives and Glee casts members, Ryan Seacrest, Rob Thomas, Hilary Duff, Rick Fox, Lance Bass, Chris Angel and many more.
If you fancy or admire Scarlett Johansson then you would be happy to know that D&G has chosen the well-known actress to be the model of their new makeup kit. Apparently, the new makeup kit is inspired by the actress herself. She does look magnificent in these ads and in the picture above.
You must be living under a rock if you have never heard of Scarlett. Scarlett Johansson, affectionately known as ScarJo, happens to be the bad girl in Iron Man 2 and is most notably known for her role in Woody Allen’s Match Point. She started out in classic roles in ancient-based movies like ‘The Girl with the Pearl Earring’ and ‘The Other Boleyn Girl’. Her most recent movie was ‘Vicky Cristina Barcelona’, ‘He’s just not that into you’ and most recently, ‘Iron Man 2’.
More on the new D&G makeup kit, what D&G wants Scarlett to portray in these campaigns is meant to “capture classic feminine rituals and expose one of the most intimate and personal of feminine moments: a woman applying make up in the privacy of her bedroom or sanctuary.” Very classy indeed. What we see ScarJo use in the campaigns are listed as the eyeshadow quad Petal, the eyeshadow duo Mystery, the eyeliner Nude, the shine lipstick Precious, the lip gloss Innocence, the blush Apricot, and the nail lacquer Petal for the Intimate Sensuality Collection.
Literally if Belle d’Opium were to be translated in English, it would be Good Drug or Marijuana but nevertheless, this is not what Yves Saint Laurent is launching. The famous fashion house from France launched its new fragrance called ‘Belle D’Opium’. The renowned French brand decided to throw a multi-sensorial soiree just for the launch of this fragrance. It must smell phenomenal.
Since it’s YSL and a multi-sensorial soiree, many celebrities didn’t want to miss this night. Those who attended included the famous twin sister, Ashley Olsen, Alexis Bledel, Whitney Port, Tinsley Mortimer, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Mark Hunter “The Cobrasnake.”
Enough of the celebrities, let’s talk more about the fragrance that is set to blow your mind away. YSL’s Belle D’Opium is known as the next generation of YSL’s original Opium fragrance. For now, it’s actress Mélanie Thierry who’s the spokesperson of Belle D’Opium. The perfume is created by Honorine Blanc and Alberto Morillas who are professional perfumers. Yves Saint Laurent’s Belle d’Opium will be out in 30, 50 and 90 ml Eau de Parfum in September.
This fashion show presented Prada’s ready to wear Spring 2011 collection which saw a re-birth of the three-button suit created by none other than Miuccia Prada. The difference from this collection and other styles was that these were slim-fitted, thus making it appealing to the young men of this generation. Time will tell us how true this will be.
The suits were complemented by ties and shirts and the runway had a look of young men on their way to work. Not only that, these young men sported reflective athletic sunglasses, waist pouches and clunky shoes that have a sneaker sole amalgamated to a rope sole, combined to a wingtip.
Some models also appeared in a work wear of dark denim, wavy sweaters with flamboyant, Lifesaver stripes. The collection showcased culottes, boat-neck sweaters and shirts with dazzlingly colored plackets and collars. This Spring 2011 collection depicted innovative ideas.
Pencil skirt will always remain fashionable year in and year out. It may stand out on its own, is part of a woman’s suit or may be paired with jackets of any length. The length of a pencil skirt depends on the fashion within that year, but most of the time it is a little bit above the knee, on the knee or a little bit below the knee. However any length that is much above the knee would not be considered as a pencil skirt, but rather a mini-skirt. Some pencil skirts also come with slits on the side to facilitate walking.
Many women think that pencil skirt is only for the very slim, well wrong guess. Voluptuous women with curves may feel that the pencil skirt will portrait them in an unflattering way. If the skirt is too tight, it will definitely look like that but a good fitting pencil skirt may accentuate feminine curves without showing any figure flaws. Women with some weight may choose loose clothing to conceal the ‘extras’, however they only succeed in making themselves look ‘big’. Whereas a fitted pencil skirt is more satisfying than a bulkier or looser fitting skirt.
A pencil skirt is quite handy and with the right accessories its look can vary from business to something more chic. And the best is that they can be matched with most types of tops and shoes, especially the black pencil skirt which can be worn to go to a party or to an office just change the tops and the shoes.
