Green Gucci Envy

January 12, 2012

I don’t normally do posts like this, but new year, new ideas, new posts. You feel me?

Anyways, I didn’t watch the People’s Choice Awards last night (I’m not a big TV person) but upon browsing through my usual morning reads I blacked out while falling in love with Emma Stone’s look last night. I’m pretty convinced this girl can do no wrong (I think I went a little lesbian when she wore that peach Calvin Klein gown to last year’s Golden Globes), and this tuxedo inspired ensemble is my epitome of outfit perfection. The cropped green Gucci jacket with the tailored trousers is so waiter-chic I can’t stand it. I just searched the internet in the hopes of finding this jacket but had no luck. Any insights would be greatly appreciated. But actual jacket or not, you can expect to see me replicating this outfit in the very near future.

What do you think of it?

Style Icon: Daisy Lowe

April 7, 2011

Daisy Lowe has been one of my style inspirations for a few years now. While I immediately fell in love with her doe eyes and shaggy fringe haircut, my obsession and love for her style followed soon there after. I relate a lot to Daisy’s style actually, because I don’t think she really has a style that can be categorized and/or labeled. One day she looks elegant and feminine, another she looks like she just stepped off the back of a Harley Davidson. While there’s always a bit of an edge to Daisy’s look, she’s entirely unpredictable and you really get the vibe that when she gets dressed in the morning it’s all about what she feels like wearing and what she feels confident in. From the red carpet to Glastonbury, she always impresses me with her sartorial choices. And she definitely has me considering a shaggier haircut…

Style Icon: Isabel Lucas

While now quite famous for her role in Transformers 2 and as a past love interest of Adrien Grenier, Isabel Lucas has been one of my style icons for quite some time. Much like Isabel I am a lover of vintage dresses but I often find their hemlines to be frumpy and unflattering, so I shorten them like nobodies business. Isabel however, manages to pull off that Little House on the Prairie look and manages to make it look both feminine and chic. When roaming the streets you’ll rarely see her wearing anything but billowy skirts and long dresses, but once she hits the red carpet she glams things up with tighter silhouettes by some of fashion’s most noteworthy designers like Marchesa, Pucci, and Chanel.

While there are some people whose wardrobes I would like to raid and others whom I’d like to go shopping with, it’s only with Isabel Lucas that I’d like to take on flea markets, thrift stores, and vintage shops. She certainly knows how to scour the racks for those one in a million pieces and you just know she has a couple of secret vintage shops where she finds only the best of the best second hand items.

But what I love most about Isabel’s style is that it’s one that I can really get behind/relate to. It’s not overly girly, it’s relaxed and comfortable, and it’s a look that transitions throughout each season just by adding or removing layers! A California girl’s dream come true!

Léa Seydoux va à Cannes

Runway Hippie “It-Girl”/favorite Léa Seydoux is dominating the red carpet this year at Cannes Film Festival. She’s there promoting her latest film Robin Hood, but like most Cannes participants, she’s managed to keep a busy schedule, attending a variety of screenings and parties, which for the likes of you and me means, MORE FASHION!

I have always loved Léa Seydoux’s style; she’s quirky, sexy, and elegant - a rare mix these days - but I think I have fallen even more in love with it since seeing her latest looks on the Cannes red carpets. I’m not sure if she has a stylist, but let me be the first to say that whomever is behind her dress choices this year has a little bit of genius in them. From a Jean-Paul Gaultier corseted cupcake dress to a dazzling, straight-from-the-runway Louis Vuitton to an ethereal emerald green Gucci gown, Léa has not only dabbled in a number of different A-List designers, but she’s also shown off her style diversity.

I can’t wait to see what else she has in store.

Style Icon: Georgia May Jagger

I have been a fan of Georgia Jagger’s style for quite some time, but since her recent participation in the 2011 Chanel Resort Show, I have fallen in love with it even more.

With lips almost always painted a brilliant crimson red, Georgia’s style is as equally sensual as it is fashion forward. She understands how to mix red carpet glamor with 1960s/70s bohemian chic, which in the end creates an effortless, elegant, and youthful look. At only 19 years old, Georgia’s managed to step out of her father Mick Jagger and mother Jerry Hall’s spotlight, and made a name for herself as model, muse, and fashion icon.

I love her subtle make-up and how she uses color and patterns in almost every single one of her outfits. I definitely wouldn’t mind raiding her closet to say the least.

It’s difficult to put a label on her style because it seems to be changing constantly. From stunning designer dresses like a Vivienne Westwood she borrowed from her sister Lizzie to a giant scarf she turned into a dress to a ripped up tunic over leggings, Georgia falls into practically every fashion category.

Here are some of her looks that I use as style inspiration:
