Armadillo Feet

Kelis- From "My Milkshake Brings all the boys to the yard" fame has now pretty much scared all the boys from the yard. What the hell is she wearing? No words can describe the hilarity of the outfit she wore to the Data Awards yesterday. She paired controversial Alexander McQueen Armadillo Shoes with a pink leather catsuit, facial jewelry, Grey hair extensions, false eyelashes, Givenchy Spiked Headband and upper thigh sweat.

In the case of Kelis' outfit we should rename these Alexander McQueen Armadillo shoes, Alexander McQueen "Im-a Dildo" Shoes.Sorry, McQueen she did you no justice.

Lady Gaga wore and bedazzled in a pair of Armadillo's and matching outfit in her Bad Romance film clip and looked farkin hot in them.

Daphne Guinness, who was also seen in this pair, is a hailed style icon and collector of rare Haute Couture clothing. Through her journalistic work she has revealed her fetish for armour style materials used in creating designer fashions, thus the Armadillos were right up her ally.At least Lady Gaga and Daphne made them look far more desirable then aforementioned pink panther above.

Well i'd do anything for a Blonde-Dike

Kanye West and Amber Rose were seen hotting up the town in one-piece leather ensembles, leopard print scarves, skinny jeans and matching Air Jordan sneakers. Amber Rose was also seen wearing Vintage Alitalia Sport 550 sunglasses. These amazing aviator sunglasses were designed for sporting purposes in the 1980's, but now their merely used as stylish paparazzi blockers. As Kanye's Stronger lyrics professed, "well i'd do anything for a blonde-dike", that must have included sharing his sunglasses, as the frames Amber's sporting, actually belong to Kanye, who has been seen wearing them several times, but i guess he knows, sharing is caring, just like he like sharing microphones...

Nicole Richie and her Fashion Brand

Long gone are the days of Nicole Richie's trashy socialite lifestyle, where breast flashing and colored hair extensions were all the rage. These days, Nicole is raising two beautiful children and focusing all her extra energy on creating a fabulous fashion brand. Nicole, who has already had amazing success with her House of Harlow Jewelry and Accessories collection, is now moving onto bigger and better things by designing shoes, sunglasses and apparel for her savvy supporters.

The apparel line will be branded as the Winter Kate Collection and will feature lightweight cardigans, vests and dresses. Nicole Richie is seen here wearing a red scarf, grey Jet skinny jeans, a Balenciaga City bag, booties and a 'Lola' feather silk cardigan from the soon to be released Spring 2010 collection.

The preview of the collection is looking good so far, so hopefully the collection will be just as successful as her jewelry line.

And just for old times sake, here is a picture of Nicole Richie being all classy and flashing her goods early in the millennium. Now you'll appreciate just how far shes come...

Posh Peepers: Balenciaga 0067/S Sunglasses

Forget Ray Ban aviators, this is how the pros do an aviator frame. Balenciaga 0067S Sunglasses are a brand new addition to the carefully thought out Balenciaga eyewear collection and have already been seen on pop sensation Miley Cyrus and eccentric style icon Amber Rose.

These sunglasses feature an oversized tear drop aviator frame with contrasting bridge and bar detailing. The top steel bridge features crystals that are ever so cautiously placed to create a subtle sophistication, unlike other sunglasses on the market with tacky bling bling sporadically placed all over the frame. The colors this rock worthy style comes in are amazing too such as dark green cactus, honey horn, chocolate horn and classic black.
They are retailing for about US $250 online at Otticanet, which is a great price for Genuine Balenciaga.Get your pair HERE.

Posh Peepers: Alexander Wang Sunglasses

 When Alexander Wang decided to collaborate with Linda Farrow to develop his first eyewear collection, you know good things were going to unfold. Linda Farrow is known for creating high quality sunglasses that are so exclusive and one of a kind, that you won't be seeing them stocked at any tacky Sunglass Hut stores. 

After a much anticipated wait, Spring 2010 came along, and super cool models such as Freja Beha Erichsen and Natasha Poly trotted down the runway in sunglasses with exaggerated corners giving off that eccentric 1950's cat-eye look. And who better to test out these bold sunglasses than Lady Gaga? She has been seen wearing Alexander Wang's first pair of sunglasses appropriate titled, AW1.

 Nicky Hilton is another celebrity who was instantly wooed by Mr. Wang's designs. She has been toting around his studded Coco Duffel Bag for months and now she has Alexander Wang AW3 Wayfarer Sunglasses to match. The AW3 is an oversized wayfarer with zipper detailing, made of nickle, running all the way around the frame. Its a contradictory pair in that it is an understated, statement maker.

 If your loving the Wang, then you can get your very own pair online at Opening Ceremony. Prices start at US $325.

Sweet Feet: Lanvin Ballet Flats

Victoria Beckham has been quoted numerous times stating her dislike of Ballet Flats. She has referred to them in the past as looking like golfer shoes, clown feet and in a recent interview she said that "Unless they're on a ballet dancer doing ballet, I just don't get it." 

Yet, this week at Heathrow Airport Victoria contradicted her previous negative statements, by wearing a Victoria Beckham Collection Dress, Cutler and Gross oversized sunglasses, Hermes Birkin Bag and a pair of Lanvin Ballet FLATS!!!

This is probably the first time she has worn appropriate travel footwear and she didn't look remotely ridiculously in them, in fact she looked quiet chic. She probably just realized her style icon, Audrey Hepburn lived in Ballet Flats and now is trying to emulate Audrey's unmatchable grace and style.   

In regards to Lanvin Ballet Flats, Victoria Beckham is actually quiet behind on the trend. For years stylish celebrities such as Lindsay Lohan, Nicole Richie, Nicky Hilton, Daisy Lowe, Blake Lively, Katie Holmes, Jennifer Lopez, Paris Hilton, Reese Witherspoon and The Hills Cast have all been slipping their feet into these comfortable and stylish leather flats.

You can purchase your own pair of Lanvin Ballet Flats online at Net-a-Porter.

Here are Preview Shots from H & M's 'The Garden Collection' featuring supermodel Natasha Poly. The collection is uniquely different to past collections, in that it was developed with an environmental conscious. All the pieces featured in the collection were made from recycled products to help sustain the environment.

 The collection is not only smart, but it also features details that live up to its name with idyllic country garden prints in bright hues, ruched petal stitching and summer hats perfect for a garden picnic. Classic creams, beige and whites were also seen on shorts, butterfly tops and anoraks for those chillier nights.

It is a refreshing summer look that will have you swapping your winter blacks for summer florals in no time.

H & M Garden Collection will be launching late March, so make sure to keep an eye out!

Lily Allen's Festival Style

Lily Allen was in Australia performing at the Big Day Out Music festival over the weekend. On stage, Lily wore a brightly colored butterfly print top which she paired with roaring leopard print underwear in true Lily Allen style. Only problem with these photos is that some wanka decided to photoshop cellulite on to the back of Lily's legs. Clearly, judging from the photo below, Lily doesn't have the legs of a 70 year old.

Chanel Supersized

Late last year, Karl Lagerfeld was quoted as saying "No one wants to see curvy women". This controversial statement had many fuming at Karl's narrow minded yet somewhat true notion. In response to the retaliation, Karl Lagerfeld in conjunction with V Magazine, shot a burlesque inspired editorial featuring plus size model Miss Dirty Martini featuring Chanel jewelry and accessories.

Although many think that Karl has had a change of heart and is embracing the idea of larger women modeling for Chanel, I'm pretty sure this is Karl's way of saying "See, i told you skinny models look better".  

Kanye West: "I'm gonna let ya finish...getting dressed Amber Rose"

Kanye West and his glamor model Miss', Amber Rose, were once again invited to the hottest fashion shows of the season. Earlier this week, the undeniably confident duo heated up the Louis Vuitton Men's Fashion Show with matching fur coats and their fierce attitudes.Amber also covered her peepers in a pair of awesome Balenciaga Bal 0067/S aviator sunglasses in chocolate brown.

The day after they attended Junya Watanabe Men's fashion Show in Paris. Kanye wore a velvet blazer with tapered leather pants, Lanvin Wayshiner oversized wayfarer sunglasses and Christian Louboutin Studded Loafers. However, those studded shoes weren't enough to distract eyes from his girl, Amber Rose, who went from "Snow Bunny" at Louis Vuitton to "Playboy Bunny" at Watanabe. Far from being an English Rose, Amber wore Burberry Prorsum ankle boots with a Rick Owens' leather jacket and a shredded barely-there dress that left nothing to the imagination from bikini lines to thigh high paw print tattoos. Although she covered her face with Super Flat Top wayfarer sunglasses, she is far from remaining incognito.

Miu Miu sunglasses really hit the big time when they introduced a pair of oversized stain glass inspired sunglasses in one of the most unique shapes. These sunglasses were quickly snapped up by Kirsten Dunst, Gwen Stefani and Mischa Barton. Who can ignore or forget these Miu Miu 66HS sunglasses?

 If there's one person that knows glamor and good taste, it is Charlize Theron. As she trotted around Paris in her chic black ensemble, she wore Miu Miu 18gs aviator shield sunglasses, also seen on Jessica Biel, to try and remain incognito in the City of Lights.

If you want to embrace the new trend towards round sunglasses, then look no furthur than Miu Miu 13HS sunglasses. Worn by Vanessa Paradis and Jessica Alba, these sunglasses are a super cute nod to the 60s.

Miu Miu 17is frame is a beautiful one. A perfect fitting Jackie'O style frame with modern split temple design. It's not hard to see why gorgeous girls Jessica Alba and Ashley Olsen fell in love with the pair and have been wearing them everywhere lately.A truly posh design.

Ashley Olsen at the 2010 Golden Globe Awards

Ashley Olsen, arrived hand in hand with her Hangover star boyfriend, Justin Bartha for the 2010 Golden Globe Awards.

Justin looked dapper in a classic black suit, while Ashley Olsen offered that pop of color to the ensemble.

The mini fashionista was wearing an electric blue Erdem satin dress, with Chopard Jewels and a Fendi Clutch. Ashley complimented her dress with matching bright blue Manolo Blahnik heels.

Although some may feel that the blue on blue was a little over the top, i feel the look couldn't have been executed any better. Black pumps would have been so predictable no?

Those with a sharp eye, would have noticed that Ashley's Manolo's were the same ones featured on Carrie Bradshaw's stylish feet in the Sex and the City Movie.

It's always great to see the Olsen Twins attending mainstream events once in a while and congrats to the Hangover cast for taking home the Comedy award!

Nicole Richie at The Art of Elysium Gala 2010

On January 16th 2009, The Art of Elysium held their 3rd Annual Black Tie Gala. The Art of Elysium is a non-profit organisation which aims to bring celebrities and artists together to voluntarily dedicate their time to children suffering from some of the worst medical illnesses. Nicole Richie and partner Joel Madden have been avid supporters of the organization for years, and as parents to two beautiful children the organization must bare more meaning.

This year Nicole Richie chose to wear a wildly printed paisley maxi dress from Etro's 2010 collection, paired with cocktail rings, Christian Louboutin heels and a burgundy Gucci clutch purse. Her locks were darkened too which set off her beautiful brown eyes.
