Fall Trend: Jump on over

Jumpsuits hit it big at the Versace Spring 2008 runway show, and many designers jumped on the jumpsuit bandwagon. Kate Moss, as always was first to embrace the look with her own Top Shop version.
This season jumpsuits replaced glamorous dresses for some at movie premiers. Maggie Gyllenhaal turned up for The Dark Knight premier wearing a simple Stella McCartney silk jumpsuit in a theme fitting black, whilst Selma Blair wore a tight fitting Marchesca.
Before Hollywood has a chance to catch on, London girls had already tired and tested the jumpsuit. However, as most Londoners, Stylist Sam Ranger chose a more radical approach to the jumpsuit trend teaming robotic Balenciaga ankle boots with 60's rounded sunglasses with the a black and white checkerboard style jumpsuit.Depending on fit and fabric, jumpsuits can be surprisingly versatile. London Fashion week saw jumpsuits worn casually during the day, whilst Beyonce rocked a golden Roberto Cavalli, during her performance at the Fashion Rocks event.
And when it comes to trends you can count on Victoria Beckham to stock her wardrobe with the latest trend-worthy items. She was recently seen going out for dinner in Manchester, England wearing a sleek Giambattista Valli jumpsuit. Girl has amazing fashion sense and always looks so darn good!

Who is Pucci Perfect?

This summer the house of Pucci caught the eyes of two of Britian's best known imports. Victoria Beckham and her all-of-a-sudden-chummy-buddy Naomi Campbell both chose to wear bright Pucci printed mini skirts.

Victoria kept hers classy by teaming her mini with a conservative baby pink sweater and demure cardigan, whilst Naomi Rage-a-thon, wore her mini really daggy. She wore it higher on the waist and attempted to match it to her bikini. The floppy hat, and bling watch just helped kill the whole look.

Victoria definitely did the Pucci mini justice with her ensemble in my opinion, but then again this post is full of bias because i frankly despise the way in which Naomi conducts herself and the way in which she treats others. So in all fairness who do you think wore the Pucci print better?

White and Bright: A Summer Delight

With summer's rear end fast approaching most continents of the world, it's time to make the most of your summer essentials.
Bright whites and brighter blues teamed together can only feel so right when the sun is shining and your in vacation mode. Both Eva Longoria and Kate Hudson teamed the blues with stark whites to create a fresh light look perfect for summer.
Everyone should have a white tunic to slip into on the beach. Kate Beckinsale takes the tunic that notch higher, teaming it with screaming red Jackie O sunglasses and strappy wedged heels. High heels appropriate for the sand? Probarbly not, but mummy Kate still looked damn good!
Halle Berry's baby doll dress is more than enough attire for our Australian summer which we're looking forward to come December. Halle chose to accessorize with a Versace handbag and Versace 4114 sunglasses which have been seen on the likes of Kate Moss, Jessica Alba, Charlize Theron, Leona Lewis, Melora Hardin and Megan Fox. Halle's love affair with Versace stems from the fact that she met her deliciously gorgeous partner slash baby daddy while she was modelling for a Versace campaign.
Finally, if your brave enough, do as Jennifer Garner does and have a white out. Jennifer went took her daughter Violet out for a day of shopping wearing a tank top, unbottoned shirt, cotton pants and Havaiana flip flops all in white. Her Yves Saint Laurent YSL 6183/S sunglasses were also black and semi-transparent white. However all that white looked quiet chic and understated.
Being drowned in a sea of black clad women, white dresses and slacks make me wish summer would come just that tad bit faster.

Victoria Beckham's Skin is blingin!

Damn! Victoria Beckham looked like quiet the sun-kissed babe as she had dinner at pal Eva Longoria's Beso Restaurant a few nights back.

Before you all start telling her to lay off the fake tan, lets remember FAKE TAN is better than a REAL tan!
