The Fashion World’s Most Iconic Handbags

Fashion doesn’t just refer to clothing, but rather the whole look of your outfit from your hairstyle, jewellery, all the way down to the colour of your toenail polish! Handbags, for example, have become effective complementary accessories when creating designer dresses. Some bag styles and brands however, are considered iconic handbags as they help complete that enviable style that so many are chasing.

We decided to write this article featuring the big name brands of today because we here at Katies Fashion blog believe we’ve found another to add to the list in the next few years. A rapidly growing bag designer on the Gold Coast, famous for her fringe handbags that ooze bohemian style has been making waves across the fashion world. Lokoa Handbags, the boho brand created by Brie Shinn has been around since 2009, but in the last few months has blown up, being spotted over the shoulder of some of Australia’s most influential models and glitterati.

Her latest boho clothing and handbag collection features studded leather and what we believe to be the next iconic handbag pattern – an eye catching Aztec print which is a perfect match for the sun kissed customers gypsy wardrobes that Lokoa affiliates itself with.

There are not that many truly iconic handbags for girls. As such, those bags held in this regard currently are almost priceless. These are the bags sought after by many, not only because they are luxurious, but because they were designed to suit the varying moods of today’s fashion conscious women.

Topping the list of iconic handbags for girls is Louis Vuitton. Sometimes referred to as Speedy, the Louis Vuitton handbag was first designed in the 1930s but was not intended as a female accessory. They were originally meant as a holder for champagnes and only achieved fashion status when actress Audrey Hepburn began to use them in her show reel and day to day life.

 

The renowned logo and print became so prominent and so often counterfeited that the label

has an ongoing budget of 15 million euros per year to deal with counterfeiting matters to protect the $28.1 billion value of the luxury label.

Another celebrity who helped made the Louis Vuitton handbag attain international prominence was Princess Grace Kelly of Monaco. She said previously that Louis Vuitton was among her favourites even as she was proclaimed royal ambassador of another iconic handbag, the Hermes. (not a great investment by Hermes it would appear!)

The Louis Vuitton has that distinctive appeal that women find irresistible. This has allowed the bag to satisfy the varying tastes of women when it comes to fashion. Even more appealing is the LV model without the iconic logo in answer to those who prefer a logo-less Louis Vuitton handbag.

Chanel, meanwhile, is another iconic handbag considered by many to be in a class all by itself. Initially released in 1955, the Chanel handbag collection, including Chanel 2.55, is a highly-coveted fashion accessory having a wide range of patterns, colours, and sizes. The designer, Coco Chanel, is a believer in numerology with 5 as her favorite number; thus, all her collections were launched carrying the said number.

The popularity of our next bag choice; Fendi, has to be credited to actress Sarah Jessica Parker. Carrie Bradshaw, the character that Parker played in the TV series Sex and the City, always had the Fendi Baguette as part of her daily get-up.

The standard Fendi Baguette handbag is crafted in stylish leather and adorned with tribal beads, floral sequins, and a few other embellishments. Carrie Bradshaw often refers to the Fendi as her ‘IT’ bag and the tag has since caught on. The designs have grown more wild as seasons go by as the brand reinvents itself with patterns to match the latest outfit trends.

Another iconic handbag, the Hermes Birkin, boasts of a highly interesting story. Sometime during the 80s, Hermes CEO Jean-Louis Dumas was on a plane bound for Paris and seated next to then actress and supermodel Jane Birkin. To his surprise, Birkin started complaining to him about her problems with handbags and the things that she believes a good lady bag should actually have.

Dumas listened intently and as soon as he stepped out of the plane, he started working on a handbag that met the requirements that Birkin enumerated. The result is the Hermes Birkin handbag, an extremely popular female accessory carried by some of the more prominent personalities in the world, including Victoria Beckham, Lady Gaga, and Kim Kardashian, just to name a few.

The jewel in the handbag history crown comes in the form of Christian Dior. One of the very few iconic handbag designs that holds a special place in fashion history. This is because the bag was a gift given to the late Princess Diana during her visit to France. This gave the bag, officially known as the Lady Dior bag, regal significance, further heightened by its unmistakable design. The design patterns were inspired by chairs previously owned by Napoleon III.

In time, different brands, patterns and styles of handbags may be added to this distinguished list of purse royalty. For the moment though, these handbags are the must have items for every fashion conscious female across the globe.

Styling Your Bangs – Tame that fringe!

Have you got one of those fringes that just seems to get the best of you? Are you always feeling like your having a bad hair day because your bangs let you down? Fear not my unwieldy friend, for I have some easy to implement methods to style up your bangs with minimal effort!

“This is a common problem that heaps of our client’s battle with,” said Gabby from Jagged Hair Salon New Farm. “The trick to achieving that perfect looking fringe comes down to simply blow drying with the correct technique.”

straight bangsStraight Across Style Bangs

Get your comb and blow dryer ready and comb out your wet bangs. Start the heat at the top of the hair with your blow dryer (you may find this easier and more effective if you use the nozzle), and using a paddle brush, pull your fringe to the right for 5-7 seconds and then to the left. Keep doing this action until your fringe is completely dry. to catch any flyaway hairs, simply hold your paddle brush underneath with your blow dryer running on cool. Boom! Straight bangs sister!

side swept bangsSide Swept Style Bangs

As a hairdresser in New Farm, this is my number one request from ladies rocking the fringe.  Super easy to do too! Wrap your fringe around a fat round brush and pull it to your desired side. With your blow dryer with nozzle attached, start at the top and follow the hair out to your brush hand. Do this for around 10 to 15 seconds smoothing your hair as you go. Do this in 3cm sections for the easiest results and pin it in  place with a bobby pin as it cools to ensure it holds.

Aangel bangsngel Bangs

Angel Bangs or faint bangs are a little more delicate. Point your Blow dryer straight down over your fringe. Move it backwards and forwards and side to side while combing your fringe to ensure no hair sticks flat against your forehead. Just as the hair is almost dry, use your fingers to pull down the more rebellious hairs.

Other Things to Consider

A good blow dryer with nozzle is essential for achieving any of these looks. If your hair is particularly stubborn, a styling agent before you blow dry will be a huge benefit. A little hairspray will also go a long way to holding your hard work in place. If you allow the hair to dry of its’ own accord it will continue to fall back to its natural spot so make sure the hair is wet enough when you try this!

A big shout out goes to Gabby from the Jagged Hair Salon team in New Farm. She was kind enough to give us a few of her best tips to help write this piece. If you don’t have time to style your hair or would rather a professional stylist did it for you get in touch with Jagged Hair New Farm via their Google+ page and book an appointment.

Yacht Week Party Fashion Must Haves

Is your daily life boring? Do you find yourself constantly hanging out for your next weekend or  holiday break? Did your Christmas vacation come and go too soon?

Yacht Week in Croatia might be the answer.

Sailing around the beautiful islands of Croatia during the day and partying hard every night is an experience you’ll never forget. Drink, mingle, and party till you drop. This is also a great time for you to flaunt your bikini and outfits while you meet like-minded people from all around the globe with the same heart for fun and adventure. The week-long party offers a variety of activities: island hopping, meet and greets, dining on local foods and freshly caught seafood, drinking, socializing, sailing to secluded and wonderful coves and beaches and a lot more.

If you’re considering partying it up in Croatia this summer, you will want to prepare yourself before embarking in this journey. Here are the things you absolutely must not forget when you go island hopping and sailing around Croatia for Yacht Week!

For The Girls:

yachtpartyBikini Overload – this week-long party is all about the summer sun, the beach and the beautiful Croatian islands. This is the perfect time to flaunt you curves and legs. Pack a bikini for this week-long hedonistic yachting trip, and do not forget to bring an extra pair. Why? Because everyone will be wearing bikinis everyday and you might not want to wear the same bikini over and over again. You might even want to bring several pairs. It’s not like they weight much so if you have a number to choose from, why not bring them all? Choose bikinis that suits your body type and designs that stand out and wear them with confidence!

Draperies – showing off your sun-kissed skin is nice but sometimes you might want to cover part or all of your skin (especially after those days where you overdo the suntanning just a bit). Scarves, shawls, and some lightweight garments can be used to cover up your body until you’re ready to show off your bronzed (not red) skin once again.

Party Dresses – when the sun goes to sleep, it is the moon’s time to shine. You don’t want to party in your bikini 24/7. Glam it up with some sexy party dresses in the evening. Make sure not to forget to bring dresses with fresh and bright colors that stand out. It is summer after all! Choose dresses that complement your features and body proportion.

Appropriate footwear- you will be in and out of the water and sand daily, so make sure to pack your fashionable flip flops for during the day, and beach ready shoes and heels for night-time partying, wherever that may be.

For The Boys:

Linen shirts –  You’re not going to want to be in your board shorts all day. Pack some comfortable shorts for when you just want to relax. With the right colors and some accessories you can also wear them to some of the evening parties.

Board-shorts/swim shorts – You’ll never go wrong with branded board-shorts or some cotton swim shorts. Pack a few pairs if you feel the need to mix it up occasionally during the week.

Deck Shoes or Top-Siders- There are the traditional choices for footwear when sailing. They’re classy and match with almost any yachting apparel. Wear them when relaxing on the yacht during the day, and take them with you to the clubs and beach parties at night!

The above-mentioned items are the essential fashion must haves for you trip. For both the boys and the girls, a fashionable pair of designer sunglasses that suit your face will also make a welcome addition to your backpack.

And don’t forget to bring sunscreen! This is the number one must have. Having a sun tan can make you look healthier and skinnies/more defined, but being sun-baked is not a good look.

You can also bring along beach toys to keep you entertained in the water. Try not to pack too much though, as additional, unnecessary items will just weigh you down. Most of all, do not bring your work, just enjoy your summer break.

Yacht week in Croatia is the ultimate time to unwind and make new friends from all over the globe. Make sure you are  ready to dig in to the fun, unleash your insecurities, get happy, get loose and most of all, party like there’s no tomorrow. The team at Katie’s Fashion wish you and all your new friends all the best for a gorgeous summer in the sun!

Some of our team are going to travel to Ultra over to Split Croatia in 2015 year with www.sail2ultra.com. The journey will be a combination of partying and island hopping with accommodation on the yachts, So keep an eye out for the post about our adventures in Europe in their coming summer at Europe’s Ultra Music Festival!

This Year’s Leading Fashion Trends in the World of Designer Eyewear

Whether you’re sporting all that is geek-chic in your eyewear selection or simple sleek black frames, it does not matter, you are contributing to the world of eyewear and influencing the course of the newest and hottest fashion trends. Yes, it is true that the original and primary function of prescription eyeglasses is to help correct our vision so we can see properly. It is also true that original and primary function of sunglasses is ultimately to protect our eyes from the sun’s harsh and potentially damaging rays.

Though this is the main reason eyewear originated, it quickly evolved into something much more than a product to simply help us see and to protect our eyes from the sun. In our world today, eyewear is considered to be one of the most fashionable accessories you can own. In addition, we are no longer resigned to buying frames from our local eye-doctors. Thanks to technological advancements, we can now purchase eyeglasses online through various eyewear ecommerce websites like http://www.dharmaco.com that offer consumer-centric features like virtual-try-on software and home-try-on trials. The days of being stuck with just one pair of eyewear is long-gone, and this article today, we are going to discuss this year’s four leading trends in the fashionable world of eyewear. We hope this will help you select your next pair of fashionable frames!

Instagram-Inspired Frames

InstagramGlassesThis particular style of frame was inspired by the popular photo-sharing application Instagram, and contains strong fashion influences from the disco and flower-child era found in the 1970s. Sunglasses in this genre typically have rose-tinted lenses, that give each fashionista sporting this frame, a filtered perception of his or her surrounding world. You are also capable of finding lenses that are gold-tinted, which ultimately creates a sepie-inspired effect and view of the world. In the world of optic-wear as well as sunwear, each frame’s materials take us back to the 1970s. Many leading eyewear manufacturers are offering products with varying tinted-shades in elegant wooden frames. The Instagram-inspired look can also be found in soft and bubbly shaped frames and also in a rounded-out shape commonly referred to as a throwback design.

The Angular Frame

The angular frame which is also commonly called the mathematical look, can be easily distinguished from other frames due to its sleekly-cut angles and simplistic, more neutral colors. They can be found in triangular-shaped frames and hexagonal frames that place great emphasis on the angles and lines of the frame, as well as solid geometrical patterns. The use of geometric shapes in its design is the primary reason it is referred to as the mathematical look. A few leading eyewear producers place great emphasis on the frame’s eyebrow bar, making it more pronounced than other portions of the frame. They are also considered to contain an appeal that is super industrial and urban. Many major designers stated that they have created angular frames to allow wearers to make bold fashion statements when they worn as an accessory. The use of white and black patterns brings a sense of sophistication to any wearer sporting the angular frame. In addition, designers have focused on matte-finished frames to illustrate that elegance does not have to shine to be considered so.

The Oceanic Frame

As you can gather from the name of this style of frame, it was directly inspired by our Earth’s beautiful oceans, emphasizing its trendy features highlighting bright blues, vibrant teals, and glowing turquoises. A lot of designers have made the decision to turn to shades of blues and greens to create frames that remind wearers of summertime and the beauty of the oceans. In addition, the Oceanic styled frame can easily be distinguished by its blue and green hues, but also in its floating lenses, which are considered to be clean and minimalistic.

The Earth Frame

The Earth frame, which is the last seasonal trend we will discuss is much like the oceanic frame in the sense that it was directly inspired by our Earth and nature. This look embodies earth-like tones like greens and browns, as well as brilliant shades of pink, which is illustrated in the designs of many leading eyewear producers this year. Patterns are concerned with flower-like patterns that evoke feelings of summer and spring, and being outdoors. This look is considered to be designed in the name of earth’s modernism.

New Designer T Shirts Hit Australian Shores

Fly Peacock is synonymous with Fashion. Their new range of men’s t shirts and singlets have just landed and are a perfect example of their undulated, cutting edge style. Summer is ending but the weather is still warm up here on the sunny Gold Coast, and business is booming for the team from Queensland and their stylish, designer clothing company.

Market FashionWith the launch of their new store at Glebe in Sydney and also at My Cube in the Myer Centre in Brisbane, the future is looking bright for this young team of trendy fashionistas. Not only can you catch them at these stores, they are also regulars at markets all around the Eastern states of Australia. Those of us who wake up early enough on weekends to check out our local markets may recognize them from Burleigh, Paradise Point, and South Bank in Queensland or Glebe, Bondi Beach, The Rocks, and Rouse Hill Designer Markets in New South Wales.

Their new line of printed tees, singlets and shorts sport a plethora of bright imagery. Many of the striking designs include lucid photography or animated and detailed prints. Because they are only operating on a small scale, Fly Peacock don’t mass produce any of their designs so you’re not going to be constantly running into people wearing the same t shirts or singlets either. You know you can’t say the same thing about shirts you buy at Universal or the like!

The team at Fly Peacock have been leaking their new designs slowly on their Facebook page, so you can take a peek there to get an early look. So far we are extremely excited about the Endless Summer range with surf and beach inspired prints and designs.

SingletsThe entire range of t shirts, singlets and shorts will be listed on their website soon, so be sure to check them out over the coming weeks. Due to their limited runs on designs it is essential you get in early with your orders as popular styles are prone to selling out rather quickly.

If you live in South-East Queensland or Sydney be sure to check out Fly Peacock’s new fashion at their stores for the best experience when deciding on a purchase, or take a look online if you are not close to Brisbane or Sydney. The team here at Katie’s Fashion have been keeping a close eye on these bright young entrepreneurs ever since we first saw them at the Young Designer’s Markets last year, and we expect to see even more brilliant and cutting edge designs from this talented team in the future.

Ski Jacket By Marmot

Ski Jackets for Northern Hemisphere Season: Marmot Vs Betty Rides

The northern hemisphere ski season is in full swing. With thousands of Aussies heading to the slopes of Japan and North America to get celebrate a white Christmas, the team here at Katies fashion thought we would save you the hard work of selecting ski jackets to suit the colder climates. You may think the Jacket you wear on the Australian hills is suitable, but remember temperatures are a lot colder in the northern hemisphere so have a read and see how your jacket compares.

If you are looking for womens ski jackets, then there are two good options available in the market. These two options are Marmot Sling Shot down Jacket and Betty Rides 2014 TrippyCat Manic Jacket, This review aims to help you make a well-informed choice between the two options.

The Marmot Sling Shot down Jacket is a serious investment at $439.96. However, the features of the jacket prove that it is value for money. Some of the important features of this jacket include a waterproofing of 20,000mm and breathability of 20,000gm. The jacket provides you the required protection from cold and wind because of the high quality Goose down Fill and also because it is critically seam sealed.

In order to ensure that the jacket remains usable and convenient for you to wear, the Marmot Sling Shot comes with a removable 3-way adjustable hood. Depending on your requirements, you can adjust the hood to ensure that you get the maximum out of this jacket. Another feature in the same domain is the removable powder skirt. You can remove the powder skirt whenever you want. These two features ensure that the jacket remains useful to you in varying climates.  

Other features of the jackets include mesh lined underarm vents and two zippered front pockets. The cuffs are adjustable and the jacket also has media pockets allowing for easy access to your phone and music. Lastly, this jacket by Marmot is available in a rich blue color to suit all attires.

The other ski jacket we are looking at is Betty Rides 2014 TrippyCat Manic Jacket. This product is priced at a nominal price of $249. Key features of the jacket include a waterproofing of 10,000mm and breathability of 8,000gm. The jacket is critically seam sealed and also comes with a fixed 3-way adjustable hood. This allows you to use or remove the hood depending upon your requirement giving you the flexibility to use it in varying climates.

2014 Ski Jacket Betty Rides Marmot Ski Clos Up

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the features of this jacket is the fact that it uses a powder skirt with Betty Connection Technology. This is a patented technology by Betty Rides that gives the wearer a comfortable experience. In addition to this, the Betty Rides TrippyCat Jacket has mesh lined underarm vents and two zippered front pockets. In line with the Marmot Sling Shot down Jacket Blue, this jacket also entails adjustable cuffs, media pocket and pass pocket. The jacket is available in brown color.

The team at Katies Fashion really like The Marmot Sling Shot down Jacket which is surely a good, durable choice if you have the money to spend on it. The feature set of the jacket makes it nothing less than flawless. However, the only downside of the jacket is its high price and if that is within your reach, then there is no way you should give this jacket a miss. On the other hand, Betty Rides 2014 TrippyCat Manic Jacket is a perfect choice for people looking for an affordable jacket, in fact, at half the price of Marmot Sling Shot Down Jacket Blue, with features that are comparable. Depending on your requirements and budget, either one of these ski jackets is sure to do the trick, and keep you warm and dry in the northern hemisphere this season.

Surprise Wedding Cake from our Katie’s Fashion team!

Amarantos cake designs are absolutely breathtaking! The Katies Fashion team are all astounded at the beauty, and creativity that goes into making one of these cakes. They can be are wonderful, and wacky or elegant and refined, depending on what you are looking for.

wedding cake 2They are one of Melbourne’s oldest cake shops, and by far the most experienced that the Katies Fashion team have come across. While we were there on a recent visit we learned about their wide array of talents and phenomenal collection of previously made designs. They do cakes for any occasion, offering the finest selection of corporate, engagement, birthday, corporate and wedding cakes Melbourne has ever seen!

Our team paid the Amarantos Cakes website a visit last month in search of a large and exquisite cake that would stand out, in preparation to celebrate one of our favourite staff member’s upcoming wedding. We don’t do things in halves here at Katies Fashion so we really wanted to go all out with this one. We spent a long time searching for a suitable cake shop not too far from our Melbourne office where our special staff member, let’s call her Katie, works each day.

The website was really well designed and really easy to navigate. There are photos and videos of all their spectacular cakes and we were in awe at the beautiful images of past cake designs. As soon as we started perusing the extensive collection of photos we knew we were onto a winner!

What struck us most was the creativity that was obviously put into every cake at Amarantos. You can tell that a good bit of consideration and time is put into each and every tasty creation. When you choose a design from Amarantos, you know your guests will be talking about it for a long time after the event – which is exactly what we wanted!wedding cake

I would describe the Amarantos experience as fun, energetic, wacky, elegant, sophisticated, and so much more all rolled into one. The creators of these lovely cakes are more than just cake decorators; they are artists in every sense of the word. Because we needed something really standout we decided to get in touch with the staff at the Melbourne cake shop to run through the specifics in detail. The service there was exceptional they took great care in understanding what I was looking for and what I needed in our creation. They even pointed out things that we hadn’t even thought about. I felt as if they really cared about our special event, which can be uncommon in today’s consumeristic and profit-driven world. We were made to feel like our event was special, and that says a lot about the Amarantos team.

So we have ordered our surprise Wedding celebration cake for Katie’s work party, many of us will be going to her actual wedding as well, and we’re a bit worried that the cake we have chosen might show up the real wedding cake (which we didn’t organize!) Hopefully that’s not the case, but to be honest the design we’re getting is really something amazing! We’ll be sure to post up lots of photos from the party so you can all see how things went down. In the meantime we’re all waiting in anticipation, the cake will be arriving in just a few days! We can’t wait!

Have an amazing weekend everybody, well fill you all again with another update on Katie’s wedding party celebrations soon!

Arnhem Clothing New Range Launch at The Freedom State!

White Bohemian Dress

Arnhem the Label’s distinctive bohemian fashion has always been a favourite of ours at Katie’s Fashion. Season after season, we are always surprised and excited upon the launch of a new range, and never disappointed with the end products. The influences of Arnhem Bickley’s upbringing as a flower child with hippy parents are evident in her collections. Following them as they drifted through various communities, attending festivals, and living in tents or teepees with no running water or electricity helped foster an acute sense of creativity in Arnhem. This was evident even as young as age 4 when she was already sewing clothing for her dolls! The beautiful embroidery, fringing, crochet, tassels and stunning prints on her soft flow fabrics are exactly the styles we love and they perfectly compliment our gypsy spirits!

A boho theme echoes throughout every article of the latest release of Arnhem clothing. The range is characterized by earthy, vintage and floral designs, with many stunning, custom signature prints. Like us, you may have been impressed by Arnhem’s spectacular range that launched earlier this year, but the new styles and designs will impress you with their intricacies and pedantic attention to detail. The influences of the beautiful Byron Bay region, where Arnhem now lives, are evident across the new line of clothes, and they exude a style embodies the state of freedom and the spirit of the beautiful people of Northern Rivers region.

Arnhem ClothingThe elegant new collection exudes a glamorous feminine, yet playful style. Because none of the items are mass-produced, each article of clothing feels special and individual. As one of Byron’s fashion icons, Arnhem the Label has been showcased by many of its celebrity fans, including Isabel Lucas and the Veronicas twins. While still in its early days as a clothing label, because of her exquisite designs and standout appeal, Arnhem Clothing has kicked off with an incredible start. Things have been looking bright for the creative designs and star appeal of the gypsy kid from Byron Bay, and with the ongoing release of exquisite fashion like those showcased in the latest boho chic range, from Arnhem the Label, the future is only looking brighter.

Summer Hair Trends

With the change in seasons, as we revamp our wardrobe, it is equally important that we revamp our hairstyle too. Even if it means chopping your hair short for the upcoming summer fashion season – go ahead and experiment with your crowning glory. To break the monotony of your looks and to keep up with the latest trends, men and women need to alter their hairstyles from time to time. The team from Brisbane hair salon Unsurpassable (www.unsurpassable.com.au) have provided the following tips; they might come in handy.pixie cut

Have the confidence to carry a short haircut with ease. Do the names Anne Hathaway or the glamorous Emma Watson ring a bell? You too can go for a semi-bob/pixie style cut which can enhance your face – not to mention being hassle free! This easy-to-maintain and fashionable hairstyle suits most the facial shapes and can be worn with any outfit. Differentiate your style by having some of your fringe hang down; it especially suits women with a broader forehead. You can also experiment with your back and side hair shorter and front hair longer to give it a different shape. For that rocker-chick look, roll your front hair into spikes or upward roll, just like Rihanna does. This red carpet look suits all kind of hair- wavy, curly, straight or silky.

Rihanna with short hairDon’t want to chop off your long locks? Don’t. Just make this simple hairstyle of making a puff at the crown for a fuller look and making a side pony tail of the remaining hair. This easy DIY hairstyle will not only accentuate your face and outfit, be it a maxi dress or a skin tight piece for a bit night out on the town; it will also change your overall summer look. Try this – make two braids, one each starting from the back of your ear. Run one of them from ear through forehead to another ear and another one running from behind towards other ear. Pin them up and flaunt your long braids without having to touch them again for the evening. Another summer trend is a side, messy bun which gives you a polished look along with making it look casual and not too stuffy. A high bun looks equally chic as it is tidy, gives you height and volume to your hair. To keep it simple and never out of style, shine those long locks with a mousse and give them a layered cut. Leave them open and they never leave you disappointed.
Have fun with your hair color too to give extra character to your hairstyle. These beautiful styles are in and will make people follow you for the rest of the summer. Long live beachy days and stormy nights!

Pretty in Pink!

celebs soft pink colours

Let me acquaint you with the prettiest dresses we’ve seen on the red carpet in the last twelve months. Soft pink is now the most sophisticated and refreshing night gown choice. It’s as stylishness as black but has the supplementary impact of looking impossibly gentle and feminine. a strong combination. The lurid mix of chiffon, charmeuse, lace and embroidery with this impalpable hue makes this colour a growing trend on the red carpet.

Aussie Model Jessica Hart looks mythic in blush pink Valentino. It’s overmodest and cut to cover rather than reveal but she still looks lovely. She keeps the jewellery to a minimum but still nails a stellar look! Jessica Biel looks exquistite in a Dior pink 50’s style number. This style of strapless, structured dress can complement the bling. The outrageous necklace and sparkle earrings are to die for!

Does Gwyneth ever get it backwards? She looks astounding in this warmhearted pink Prada garment. Her retro smooth hairdo and the formidable red lipstick add the required bite to the softness of the dress. She is an absolute star. Kate Hudson in Versace and Naomi Watts in Marchesa know how to cause a stir on the red carpet. Both these soft lace dresses are unbelievably intricate – coloured in red and black the overall impact would be way too intense. In soft pink? You’ve got two show stopping gowns. Lastly there is Keira Knightly in an impressive Chanel Haute Couture mellow pink dress. Oh la la! This dress could be worn by Anna Karenina herself. It’s ostensibly from another more romantic time. Supernatural, innocent and fairy like with a breath of passion. Think Pink. Think Pastel. Cerebrate flawlessness.
