style is everything, comfort is nothing
We've said it before, and we'll say it again. Since THE cocs-snorting tornado incident not long ago, she seems to be busier than ever doing contract-signing, campaign-starring, and all sorts of other dollar rich activities. Take a look at the 'Scandaleuse Beaute' in this Roberto Cavalli campaign for instance, or the Longchamp images where she's looking better than ever.
Throughout this year, we've seen an overdose of chunky beaded necklaces, gold medallion pendants and ethnic Arabic princess bracelets. As such, it's a great relief to look at the forecast for accessories in 2006. Finally we're moving on! Yes, we can't wait to see cleaner, more simple lines, bold colours and the odd future-realistic piece of necklace. Pay attention, darlings; if you have to make a statement, make it BIG and romantic, and clean. But do not, by any means, get confused by the passed boho deluxe/hobo/so... (what the hell was it called anyway??) Take a cue from Chloe like this or Chanel's splendid way of turning a tweed dress into something quite magnificent. Whatever direction you choose, remember less is more. Oh by the way, if we see one more 'Gypsy Rose Lee impression' on the streets today, we're gonna be sick, we're telling you...
Reading Ozzie model Gemma Ward’s "Backstage Diary" has all been very interesting, but what's happened since her last update in October...? Come on Gemma - we want a glimpse of your current life!
There's something fascinating about this woman. At the sophisticated age of 47, Madonna is a real treat for both men and women, looking better than ever, showing no signs of slowing down. Fit as can be, her "Confessions On A Dance Floor"-album has become a real success, knocking down the usual dance-floor fillers. Some of the key elements to her ongoing success are her attitude, her willingness to deliver incomparable performance, and naturally her state-of-the-art dress. More importantly we'd love to know: Where does she get her energy? How can she look so utterly gorgeous all the time? How can a woman be a successful mother, wife, and maintain such stardom all at the same time?
Some say it’s dirty, crowded and totally stressful, others would say it’s the most amazing place they’ve ever been to. It’s likely that there are more opinions about this city, than there are places to stay. What we know for sure is that we absolutely love
What: The Q Bar
When: 8pm +
Dresscode: Stylish, classy, not too daring.
As the stores are getting busier with people doing their Crimbo shopping, the last thing we want to do, is to join in with this mad bunch. Mad? It's a RIOT here in Sydney... So we're particularly pleased to know that we can rely upon cyber space. Mimco is now introducing an online store, featuring their gorgeous bags, purses, hats, and jewellery. FYI Cyber Santa; we've been good girls this year...
We know you can all shop 'til you drop, there's nothing new about that... but if you, NYC coolchiqs, are sick of running round the shopping mall for a change, we suggest you head down to the National Design Museum, and check out the different fashion exhibitions lined up this season. One of them is the "Fashion In Colors" exhibition. As the name suggests, the theme is focused on colours and the different aspects a particular colour can signal.
Well it's that time of the year again. Wish lists, Christmas parties, New Year's Eve frocks, etc... But this year, it'll be somewhat different for us. Instead of looking for thick winter boots and warm sheep-skin coats, we'll be spending most of our days in gorgeous strappy sandals, peep toed heels, and God-knows-what to survive in the heat.
Take the most glamorous place you can think of. Multiply it by ten and you may not even be close to the richness of Reid’s Hotel in
What: The Tea Lounge at Reid’s Hotel
When: Tea is served between 3-5.30pm
Where: Estrada Monumental 139, Funchal,
Dress code: Their website suggests smart-causal in a humble way, though this expression is somewhat misleading. Think red carpet gowns, and you will not feel out of place.
Sometimes you gotta ask yourself a question; What on earth is going on? Take Dior's example of turning a pair of plain-looking pants into a totally bizarre piece of clothing. The see through paper-finish added to the end of the trousers makes this garment look like a big mistake. Add insult to injury, there's a matching trench too... (No, we're not on the waiting list for this).
