The Golden Night

It’s finally that time of the year once again. Award season is upon us and along with it the fashion that amuses us all. The first show of the year is the acclaimed Golden Globe Awards, which were held at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills. The location by itself screams glamour at the highest expression. The red carpet did not disappoint either it was full of that Hollywood air.

At least for me personally the styles strutting down the red carpet are way better than last year. On the other hand, there were also a couple of disappointments for example my expectations for Lupita were extremely high. Don’t get me wrong I don’t think she looked bad I just wanted more from her. It can definitely be said that metallics and pure white ruled. I mean if you’re a star it feels pretty practical to play the part and dress up.

From the long list of good-looking ensembles I have two that made me feel like I was on cloud nine. Both of the looks completely opposite but both so amazing. The Into the Woods actress Emily Blunt who wore a Michael Kors pleated white gown wowed me. Her look was simple but it made her look like a total goddess definitely my favorite. She paired it up with stunning Lorraine Schwartz turquoise earrings and bracelet.

Right up behind her is queen of the red carpet and well queen of everything really, Mrs. Jennifer Lopez. She wore a breathtaking Zuhair Murad gown that has me going crazy. The gorgeous beaded silver dress had a beautiful cape and frontal slit not to mention the perfect low V-neck cut. Not to mention her perfect hair or tan she was the personification of the word diva.

We just started this season so will be seeing much more from these gals plus all the others that have yet to amaze us with their style. So excited to see what they have in store for us next. They make us feel like Cinderella isn’t just a fairytale.

We usually strive to have an overall good look when we step out to play or work. Now isn’t that just being a conformist, a basic good look with no one to really impress. What if I told you that you could be an all star down the avenue and have anyone compliment you on how good you look?

It mostly depends on key items that we add to an overall look. Some of us have a special talent but others can acquire the ability to look good without any effort. Shoes are always hands down an accessory that transforms any outfit. Just give it a simple try.

Given the season fads come and go with some leaving a little something behind. Maybe your personal style is not all that funky but we can fix that right away. Just add on a really funky heel or flat that’s so in you will be remembered by it. This time it’s no so much about the shoe but more about the sole. White sole shoes are so back that not even being on the cast of Clueless would make you feel more fashionable.

All sorts of fashion bloggers are infusing their ensembles with this sort of style and giving it the funkiness that sometimes we may lack. Below are some examples on how you can wear them and some styles available for sale. Don’t go over to the boring side on 2015, just take the leap and be fearless.

Gladiator Heaven

Trends come and go, as we all know. Some of them tend to just have a tranquility phase in which some of us may forget about them. But the joy we feel when we see pieces come back in style and we can either get them out of our closets or buy our favorites. In this case it’s all about the gladiator sandal. It’s a remarkable accessory that makes an ensemble grand, even the simplest one.

Ever since they first came out I was astonished by how imposing they looked. For some reason I never got the chance to buy them. I never could find the one I loved in my size and so the trend started to wear off. When I saw that they came back I felt determined to find the perfect one. This time I wouldn’t let anything in the way of my fascinating sandal and myself. So the hunting began. I did find the perfect ones and I am utterly in love with them.

The thing about them is that they can be tricky to style. But no worries I’ll give you a few tips so nothing can stop you. You have to show a little or maybe a lot of leg in order to wear them correctly. You could style them with high-waist shorts or a pretty little dress. The style I like the most is a boho-chic kinda look that gives them the perfect exposure. Here are some pictures of how I like to wear them, how will you?

Pasarela en Cannes

El glamour se trasladó esta semana a la edición 67 del Festival de Cine de Cannes, en Francia, donde actrices como Blake Lively, Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett, Zhang Ziyi, Zoe Saldaña y Paz Vega se desplazaron con encanto y mucha elegancia tanto en la alfombra roja como en la sesión de fotos para la prensa.

Tanto el primer como el segundo día de la jornada cinematográfica, que dura 11 días, fue Lively quien capturó todas las miradas, por encima de la propia Kidman, quien ha lucido como la princesa que interpreta en la polémica cinta Grace of Monaco.

De Gucci Première, la “Serena” de Gossip Girl lució radiante el primer día en Cannes con un vestido de falda plisada color vino, para el cual se recogió el cabello en una larguísima trenza despeinada. Combinó su atuendo con unas sanadalias Casadei. 

Al siguiente día la espigada actriz se destacó con un Chanel Couture azul claro con detalles de brillo, que combinó con unos stilettos puntiagudos blancos con taco en escarcha, de Sophia Webster.

Durante el día, Lively fue captada, de camino a su aparición en el programa Le Grand Journal, con un traje corto floreado de Giambattista Valli, ocasión para la cual Saldaña también resaltó con un vestido corto que simula dos piezas, en encajes Chantilly blanco y negro, de la casa Valentino

A continuación, te presentamos a otras de las mejores vestidas en Cannes, en el inicio del festival y algunos modelos del calzado con que combinaron sus atuendos.

Dream Night

Every woman has special occasions throughout her lifetime that open or in some cases close certain chapters. One must enter or exit every situation with the outmost luxuriousness. It all starts with the commencement of interest in the way we look and the way we portray ourselves to the world. But there’s just two special occasions that came to my mind where I wanted to look flawless. My wedding day and of course PROM! I mean who isn’t excited for prom? Prom is the biggest event of your school years that you get to go all out. There’s the music, the date and of course the outfit which is the most important of all.

First, you need to pick up the dress that of course has to be one that will make heads turn. But then the real difficulty comes your way: finding the perfect pair shoes to match. This can be tricky since everyone is on the hunt. When you think you found “the one”, that pair that you can’t go to prom without , there comes the sales associate to tell you some other girl just bought the last size 7 they had in stock. Just like that your dreams are stolen and the perfect night has become the worst nightmare.

It may take time but with a little help the perfect prom outfit can be unraveled. I love looking at all the girls and how they put together the cutest of ensembles for that special night. Here are some options you can pick for that unforgettable moment. Remember this is a once in a lifetime shot you have to impress your peers so make it count and leave them breathless.

Explosión púrpura

Image

La primavera comenzó oficialmente el miércoles, 20 de marzo de 2014, y desde finales del año pasado podíamos anticipar que se trataría de una estación muy colorida, debido a la elección del violeta rosado como color del año.

Pantone Color Institute, la paleta de colores más reconocida en el mundo del diseño gráfico, designó al Pantone 3224 y le llamó “Radiant Orchid” (orquídea radiante) como el matiz que estará de moda este año. La selección de esta tonalidad, según ha expresado la empresa el instituto Pantone expresa el ánimo que se percibe en las industrias que influyen en las tendencias globales.

orchid 5El Radiant Orchid, es una mezcla vibrante de rosado, malva y violeta, y combinado con otros tonos de púrpura, fucsia y rosa puede dar un aire del exotismo y delicadeza que todos percibimos en las orquídeas. También es ideal para combinar con blanco, crema, negro, todos los metálicos, y hasta para crear efectos de “color block” con tonos igual de intensos como el verde esmeralda, jade, violeta y amarillo, entre otros.

Desde el 2000, Pantone Color Institute elige dentro de su carta de colores un tono que identificará al año en curso según sus observaciones en cuanto a las tendencias mundiales.

A continuación algunas combinaciones de zapatatos disponibles en Novus y Novushoes.com con piezas en color Radiant Orchid que te servirán de inspiración:

Dare to Bloom: Novus Spring 2014 Ad Campaign

NVS_LAT-MUJER-HELLO.FUN

Most of us are visual individuals. We feel more attracted towards something when we can see it. Colors have the potential to give meaning to anything this is why they play such an important part in our daily lives. Playing with them depending on the season can be so much fun, furthermore when you can take that message across to the consumer.

The established shoe store Novus has unveiled the new Spring 2014 campaign and the first thing that comes to mind when you see each ad is happiness. It’s colors and graphics take you to that place you see in the picture where everything is perfect. Focusing on the Spring 2014 Pantone color palette as the background and letting the product speak for itself the campaign is subtle yet clever. It gives you a sense of lightness and freshness while leaving wanting more. The colors are splendid and the mixture of graphic, texts and product gives a marvelous outcome.

Each ad has a short message that goes to the point and creates a harmony between what it says and what it shows.  To this you add the brilliant graphics and illustrations created by Puertorrican Gerardo Cloquell whom did a great job conceiving backgrounds that don’t compete with the focal point yet catch your attention and compliment the final product.

The name given to this new campaign is none other than: Dare to Bloom which goes perfectly with what it brings us. Once again they have impressed us (or at least I can talk for myself) by revealing an amazing campaign that not only exceeds expectation but also builds up excitement to what will be next. Playful, fun and dare I say with absolute refreshing styles that will blow you away so hold on!
