French fetishist and purely vintage. Gone is the 70s trend and here are the first images from the new Louis Vuitton Fall 2011 ad campaign. The set is missing two models, one of them being the fabulous Fei Fei Sun, but the rest will come out in time. I think this campaign would have been better with all of these models behind Kate and Jessica. Yes?

Jon K will always have the ultimate hair goal for myself, but there are styles I am ready and willing to try out.
1) The Topman AAA model’s hair. For the past few years, my hair has slowly been evolving into this. My hair length on top is ridiculous, the bangs area reaches my lips, so I can fully take advantage of these edgier hairstyles that I’ve been fantasizing about. I have been frightened to go all of the way with this style, but I believe it’s about time that I can do it. What is there to worry about? It’s only hair, right?
2) For this summer, I really want to try out these chic braids. The thought of men wearing a braid on short hair is such masculine take on a generally feminine hairstyle. Luckily, with the previous hairstyle I chose, I’ll be able to take advantage of this if I can somehow master it. The blond braid caught my attention last summer and it has been one of my favorite photos ever since for hair inspiration. The second photo, I came across on a blog and it’s absolutely perfect. I’m crossing my fingers on this one.
The sunglasses photo has been my iPhone’s wallpaper for the past week and a half. I’m in love. The fluorescent coloring is wonderful and there’s something fresh with this small editorial. Can you spot it? There’s a lack of Photoshop and airbrushing. Her hair and “imperfections” are fairly visible, and it makes me love this simple set of photos.

It’s about to get hot in here. Rolling around tropical beaches of the Canary Islands in Cavalli and Emilio Pucci, Daria Werbowy is the perfect bronzed siren. Not the most creative shoots, as it reminds me of several she’s done and several of Kate Moss’s from last year, but her beauty is breathtaking nonetheless.

I want to embody this minimalist styling: the clean suits, the chunky knits, the neutrals with a pop of bright color, and even the hair. That and Jesper is adorable. The models are styled in YSL, Burberry, Stella McCartnely, and others, and are extremely chic. I need to go to my campus Barnes & Noble to search for this latest copy.

Such a delicate beauty. Natalia Vodianova covers Vogue China in the June 2011 issue.

Angela Lindvall in Andrew Gn Pre Fall 2011 and Karlie Kloss in Christian Dior were captured together at the Met Ball. While Lindvall looks forever youthful, we have to hand it to Kloss for bringing out her beauty and maturity. The cropped hair is also fresh.
Supermodel, Raquel Zimmermann, was ravishing in black, feathered Alexander McQueen with a McQueen clutch to match. If everyone stuck to the theme like Raquel, the night would have been that much more exciting and interesting.
Lily Donaldson wore a blue lace Erdem Spring 2011 dress and looked super chic. Many were worried about the gown, but she looked sexy with a touch of delicate beauty.
Last but not least on my model watch, Jessica Stam. I was surprised to see Jessica so prim and sweet in a dressed made for her by Tommy Hilfiger. She paired the saccharine tulle with a Chopard 50-carot diamond necklace. I found this unexpected for her, since she usually adorns herself in this street fashion, rock girl and it was definitely a lovely surprise.
*Doutzen, Natalia, and Gisele looked fabulous too, but everybody knows that already.
Not surprising at all, but the models looked infinitely better than many of the actresses that showed up to last night’s event and the randoms that you question how they got invited or if they just somehow broke security (I’m looking at you Ciara. Some muse you are to Tisci. I just wanted to yell out, “she doesn’t even go here!”).
First model in point, my favorite, Lara Stone. Is someone setting up a really great joke by placing Lauren Hutton next to Lara? Gap-toothed beauties working it on the red carpet. Speaking of which, her gap does look incrementally smaller. If rumors are true, I hope she doesn’t close the gap all of the way. Now, back on topic. We all know Lara has an exclusive with Calvin Klein, so naturally she’s going to show up in Costa’s minimalistic efforts. She looks beyond sexy, but they couldn’t have chosen something a little more for the event or even allowed her to show up in McQueen?
Coco Rocha also gifted the world through a Tweet of Lara Stone, Dree Hemingway, and an Olsen in the ladies room. Silly ladies.
While the night was devoted to the late, great McQueen, two lovely ladies caught my eye in Riccardo Tisci’s creations for Givenchy. I may be slightly biased and Givenchy Haute Couture can easily win any best dressed in my eyes, but I am shrieking at these stunning beauties. First up: Liv Tyler. Liv is wearing Spring 2011 haute couture and it is fabulous. Just to simply see the gown was exciting for me.
What truly had me on the floor was Mariacarla Boscono in Fall 2010 haute couture. It was my favorite gown when Natasha Poly wore it for the presentation and it is my favorite gown still when Mariacarla killed it on the red carpet here. The skeletal-ornamentation of crystals and marabou feathers still stun me.
I don’t generally care for Mr. Pleskun, and maybe it’s the pop of pink in the floral arrangement, but he does look rather dapper and adorable. I just want to pinch him. I can’t figure out who he’s wearing, but wrapping of the fabric and the oversized bow tie is so chic, yet edgy.
