Pantone S/S 2016

Colortopia- Pantone’s 2016 Spring Summer Colors

The experts at Pantone just announced the annual Color of the Year and SURPRISE it is not one color but two! Indeed, the color authority chose the combo of soft blue Serenity and the blush pink Rose Quartz. By selecting two relaxing, soft & airy pastels, Pantone has a message for us all: Chill out.

“With our hectic lives and the frenzy around us, there is an increasing demand for tranquility,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone Color Institute’s executive director. That’s just what these hues deliver: Rose Quartz evokes a sunset, budding flower, or flushed cheek, while Serenity conjures an expanse of bleached blue sky. Worn separately, they don’t have the same power of calmness as they do when worn together. “Wearing both of these hues at once is like returning to the weightlessness of your youth,” says Eiseman. “The combination of a cool and a warm color brings a sense of balance.”

Pantone not only released the relaxing color duo but they also released the Fashion Color Report for this year as well. Giving this years new trendy colorway “A transporting and Transformative Canvas.” Pantone introduced, Buttercup, Fiesta, Green Flash, Iced Coffee, Lilac Gray, Limpet Shell, Peach Echo, Rose Quartz, Serenity, and Snorkel Blue. The colors this season transcend cultural and gender norms. Vivid brights give way to excitement and optimism, though quiet stability prevails in this season’s palette. “Colors this season transport us to a happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves,” says Leatrice Eiseman Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute.

Beyonce’s Win’s The Icon Award

The Council of Fashion Designers of America kept it quite hush on who would be the recipient of this year’s icon award. That is until Jay-z and Blu Ivy slipped into the ballroom to take their seats. The global superstar, on a quick break from her Formation World Tour, showed up unexpectedly to accept the award in front of an A-list fashion crowd of designers and actors gathered to celebrate the industry’s top talent. Knowles wore a sparkly, striped Givenchy suit, a wide-brimmed black hat and an Icon-appropriate amount of Lorraine Schwartz jewelry: an over 100-carat diamond necklace (a value of $7 million), two 25-carat diamond stud earrings and a collection of diamond rings. She was introduced by CFDA Chairman Diane von Furstenberg, and gave a speech that would drive anyone in her presence to tears.

Beyonce’s sparkly ensemble quickly flooded social media and with that she couldn’t help but to be acknowledged for both recreating and paying tribute to both the late Michael Jackson and David Bowie. Check out the inspired looks for Beyonce’s award winning red carpet fashion!

Shoetopia-U Lesson On Stacked Heels

A Stacked Heel. n.

A chunky shoe heel made of several layers of material. Usually wooden but can be leather too. It is usually subtle and can only be noticed from up close.


School is still in session & this summer we’ve made it a goal to educate our shoe lovers on the top trends this season. So grab a seat and get some much need knowledge on this summer’s rising contemporary style the stacked heel!

So what is a stacked heel?

A stacked heel, also known as built heels and stack heels, gives the illusion of thin layers of wood or other materials that have been stacked up to create the heel. Stacked heels are most recognizable in women’s heels, but they can also appear in wedges, boots, and ankle booties.,vh

Are they comfortable?

The heels have the feminine lines and sophistication of stilettos, but they’re much more comfortable and a lot easier to walk in, making them an appropriate choice for everyday wear. A chunky heel is a great alternative to a stiletto. If you have a hard time walking in heels, you might find a stacked heel to be a lot less wobbly. Stacked high heels are the perfect option for a night out when you want height, but don’t want to sacrifice comfort, or if you spend most of your day on your feet.

What’s the difference between a chunky heel and a stacked heel?

The main difference between a chunky heel and a stiletto is the size of the heel: a stacked heel is wider and covers more surface area, while a stiletto is thin and covers very little surface area.

How do I wear them?

Stacked heel boots are perfect for all types of weather. A pair of stacked heel sandals made out of a natural material like wood denotes a casual look and is appropriate for warm weather outfits. These kinds of shoes evoke a summery, resort style, and look great paired with maxi dresses shorts and skirts.  Wear them with a midi skirt, shift dress, or jeans in the daytime and dress them up with a simple cocktail dress for night. Stacked heels can also work in any season, from a fall/winter ankle booties to the dress sandals we’re seeing this spring. The bonus is that they’re comfortable, stable, and easy to trot in.

Trendtopia-All Choked Up

 

They’re back! A new and updated look since the outdated throat-clinging chokers from the ’90’s. Adding a hint of ’90’s flair to any outfit, the necklaces — whether a thin slice of fabric or heavier piece of hardware — seem to represent a broader fashion shift from overly Bohemian trends to something slightly edgier. It’s a trend that’s been creeping back thanks to an overall ’90’s resurgence. The choker, of the velvet, metal, rhinestone or leather variety, has been seen on the necks of models-off-duty, everyday cool girls. There’s a good reason your favorite 90’s staple has somehow gotten huge again. It’s delicate, it’s different, and it adds a little bit of an edgy vibe to even the simplest of looks. Your favorite stars, bloggers, and fashion houses have been taking on this not-so-new necklace.  Choose to give your style a fashion-forward boost and choose a style that fits you best!

Glitz & Vegas Glam At The Billboard Music Awards 2016

PIIMonday night kicked off the 2016 Billboard awards at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. It aired live on ABC with hosts Ludacris and Ciara. With Celine Dion receiving the Billboard Icon Award, Brittney Spears winning the Millennium Icon Award, & Madonna’s Prince Tribute, this awards show was an event to not be missed. The hostess Ciara herself sported the leggiest looks of the night. Hey, if you got them FLAUNT them. She did just that! Armed with an arsenal of outfit changes Ciara left nothing to the imagination. From sequins to deep plunging velvet & through a full 7 outfit changes every outfit was complemented by her gorgeous legs, which she wasn’t hesitant in showing off! These are a few of our fave looks for the night.

 

At the start of the night Ciara graced the pink carpet wearing a risqué silver chainmail Philipp Plein gown paired with strappy silver heels, showing off pure side boob without a care in sight! The gorgeous dress sparkled in the Las Vegas sun as she posed for pictures on the pink carpet. Our 2nd favorite look was silver gown by Naeem Khan, the long-sleeved ensemble was both sexy and chic and the metallic hue worked so well on her body. Last but not least the statuesque stunner rocked a stunning burgundy plunging velvet wrap high slit gown by Michael Costello. Which look is your favorite?

Contributing once again to the already popular braided styles we have seen earlier this year, Lucy Hale rocked the perfect hybrid hairstyle to the event. This pretty little liar has been well known to rock the most stylish hairstyles for women with “LOBS.” Monday night Lucy rocked a mini mohawk-inspired braid running down the back of her head, sitting atop a low ponytail to the awards. Sleek, sexy, and simple this “faux-hawk braid,” is a showstopper, and a completely easy trend to try on your own this season in the warmer weather!

Zendaya stepped out on the red carpet looking absolutely flawless. With her Aaliyah/Rihanna-esque vibes its always a chic time when she steps out on the carpet. Last year she showed up with friends Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez, standing out in her 2-piece printed Fausto Puglisi that clearly showed a perfect display of her style prowess and love for bold patterns. This year she stunned in one a nude bra and skirt by the Calvin Klein Collection, minimal jewelry, and bone straight tresses. Showing off her sleek effortless beauty in one of Pantone’s SS16 colors Rose Quartz.

2016 CFDA Awards

CFDAJust when you thought you had a break from awards shows, next up on this year’s glamorous agenda is is the CFDA Fashion Awards, an evening presented by the Council of Fashion Designers of America to celebrate outstanding contributions to the industry. Not sure what we’re talking about? Let us take you back 2 years ago to 2014 when Rihanna stopped the show before it even began! The singer, who was there to collect her Fashion Icon award, left very little to the imagination with her custom Josephine Baker inspired Adam Selman dress, which she accessorized with a fur throw. Her look was completed with a crystal encrusted headscarf and matching pair of gloves which were both embellished with over 216,000 Swarovski crystals.

On June 6, 2016 this year’s show will be hosted by none other than the satirical comedian Joel McHale. Now although his resume doesn’t typically scream fashion, his comedic humor from longtime roles on the hit shows Community & The Soup, is exactly what the CFDA executives believe will mesh well and add humor to the style-oriented night. “His experience as a host, an actor, a comedian and someone who comes from outside the fashion industry will keep the night lively, topical, and unexpected,” Steven Kolb, President and Chief Executive Officer of the CFDA, said in a statement.

Among the already star-studded guest list this year’s lineup of announcers is intriguing enough to grab anyone’s attention. From Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson from Broad City who will be presenting the Accessory Designer of the Year award, to Alexander Skarsgård who will be presenting the Menswear Designer of the Year award, and  Claire Danes will who will be presenting the Women’s wear Designer of the Year award. While he was known for decades of chart-topping music, David Bowie’s will also be honored for his stylistic prowess at the annual event with the Board of Directors’ Tribute Award—an accolade that will be accepted by Oscar winner, Tilda Swinton, who previously acted as his wife in the music video for his 2013 track “The Stars (Are Out Tonight).

But don’t be fooled the CFDA is not just an awards show that recognizes celebrities for their fashion. It recognizes extraordinary design and the outstanding contributions made to American fashion by individuals from all areas of the industry and related arts. The ceremony spotlights the top tier talent in the industry to date and supports scholarships aimed at young designers.

Presenting the gorgeous and the youngest Depp member, Lily-Rose Depp as the new face of Chanel’s Fall 2015 eyewear ads! Daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis has blessed the world with recently released ads from Chanel new eyewear line, looking effortlessly cool.

I guess it runs in the Depp family to always look so cool without trying, actor/father Johnny Depp has been in the public forever and manages to always look cool. We also cannot forget the model/mother of our young Depp, Vanessa Paradis, or should I say the Chanel ambassador since 1990! Paradis also starred in Chanel’s Spring handbag campaign, it’s no secret that Lily-Rose Depp is following the footsteps of her very famous parents while still presenting herself as an individual at the young age of sixteen, winning our hearts by her grace and beauty.

Chanel designer, Karl Lagerfeld shot the Fall 2015 eyewear ads stating, “Lily-Rose is stunning, she’s a young girl from a new generation with all the qualities of a star.” There is no doubt that Lily-Rose Depp will rise to top and continue to follow the steps of her parents and make a name for herself. At this young of an age, there is no telling what Lily-Rose accomplish, but I know that we are all so excited to see her around more and to watch her grow as we did with Papa Depp from the age 21 and Mama Paradis from the age of 13.

Lily-Rose Depp was born a star and will continue to grow into a brighter star becoming her own woman.
