1. Kristen Stewart’s Silver Graphic Work and Knotted Mess

The Twilight girl Kristen Stewart brought not one iota of her previous auburn-haired demure girl visage onto the Met Gala 2016 red carpet but totally oozing out punky vibes. Her platinum bob with dark roots was secured into a messy half-up, half-down knot, while the eyelids were futuristically shining with graphical metallic silver strokes.

2. Poppy Delevingne’s Platinum Stand and Wine-Spiced Lips

Poppy Delevingne’s bejeweled dress was not the only limelight. There was still much stuff to marvel at, starting from her platinum long tresses side-parted and kept in perfectly straight stand to her soft cat-eye accents and wine red pout.

3. Lupita Nyong’o’s Sky-Scraping Hairstyle

Lupita Nyong’o was seemingly paying homage to iconic Nina Simone wearing a sky-scraping towering hairstyle making all and sundry constantly lay eyes on her. As opposed to her topmost hair, Lupita kept her makeup minimalistic and natural.

With our eyes already trained to see Taylor Swift’s platinum bob, which she kept in effortless helter-skelter state the previous evening, it was her deep cherry lips that brought her to a new technology-chic level, while her flawless skin was sweetly showing tender blush.

6. Rita Ora’s Silver Sparkles and Reflections

Rita Ora’s silver feathered gown was just screaming to be matched with silver shadow at the inner corners of the eyes and some mirror diamond-shaped particles on sleek center-parted updo, while her tender lips were all in natural shine.

7. Beyonce’s Nonstop Sleek Hair and Jade Eyes

Fashion

Not that long time ago It-girl, model and designer Olivia Palermounveiled her very first Chelsea28 collection for Nordstrom to the pleasure of those, who look up to the fashionista for some sources of inspiration for building up one-of-a-kind day-to-day looks. The collection arrived at the stores in February, and the 23 pieces it featured did not disappoint us. If you weren’t able to get your hand on any of those pieces, or you actually managed to but would really like to repeat the experience, rejoice! Olivia Palermo’s second Chelsea28 collection for Nordstrom is finally here! Available for purchase online and set to debut in bricks-and-mortar stores on May 9, Palermo’s second Chelsea28 line-up for summer 2016 is all about breezy staples and, of course, her signature ladylike aesthetics, reaffirming her passion for geometrical cuts and minimalistic modern style.

Olivia Palermo's Summer 2016 Chelsea28 Collection for Nordstrom

With price tags that range from $68 to $198, the Olivia Palermo x Chelsea28 summer 2016 collection focuses on ensembles that can be interchangeable indeed, and aim at being worn either to the office, university and for any other more formal occasion, or during a day/night out with a friend either in town or outdoors. Each piece preserves Palermo’s undisputed elegance, and features some of the summer 2016 hottest trends. The line-up could be described as all that this summer offers us in terms of fashion, and is filled with iconic must-haves.

The collection’s key pieces are the delicate shirtdresses, wide-leg cropped denim trousers, off-shoulder tops and, of course, mannish blazers, to which the designer added golden marine buttons and clean-cut hems. In general, the marine theme is strong in this collection, and brings in slightly sleek printed fabrics, loads of denim ensembles and light blue colors, which get at times interrupted by some delicate floral prints, suede fabrics and off-white hues.

Other must-haves include the universally flattering denim overalls with bell-bottom trousers, off-white wide-leg jumpsuits and tie-neck peasant midi frocks, which will satisfy both the most glamorous and hippy girls in you. Long, dark-green military vests create a good contrast with the line-up’s pencil and wrapped skirts, while bell skirts with pleats along with some thick midi A-line denim skirts function as the yin and yang of all gowns.

A long sleeveless long vest reminds us that this collection was designed by Olivia Palermo indeed, while some cute, yet ‘plain simple’ tank tops, along with a few equally cute Oxford shirts in cotton give us something to show off on a daily basis. Each one of the pieces is meant to be mixed and matched based off of your personal tastes, so if you are looking for some head-to-toe outfits checking out the Olivia Palermo x Chelsea28 collection at Nordstrom might definitely be the right thing to do now.

Madonna Taps Pia Mia as First Fashion Director for Material Girl

Fashion

Another day, another chance to see a singer, It-girl and social media personality add ‘creative director’ to her CV, with the only difference that this time she hasMadonna’s seal of approval. Pia Mia, whose full name is Pia Mia Perez, has been tapped by Madonna as Material Girl’s first ever fashion director, leaving both Pia’s and Madonna’s fans entranced by the news. Founded almost six years ago, Material Girl has a long history of tapping musical talents as the label’s brand ambassadors, including Rita Ora, Taylor Momsen, Sofia Richie and Zendaya, connecting each time with its aficionados on a deeper level. Given the fact that Material Girl was inspired by Madonna’s 19-year-old daughter, Lourdes Leon, one can’t really be surprised about Madonna and her manager Guy OSeary’s choice to pick one of the most influential socialites on the Internet to spice up the label’s style.

Madonna Taps Pia Mia as First Fashion Director for Material Girl

With her four-million follower base on Instagram, Pia will surely lessen the distances between her peers and Madonna’s iconic brand, adding a more contemporary touch to the Eighties-inspired attitude of the brand’s creations. She will utilize her funky street style aesthetics for the Material Girl SS 2017 collection, and it does not even end there.

Material Girl, which was founded under parent MG Icon (a partnership between Iconix Brand Group Inc.), is also going to team up with StyleHaul, releasing a series of videos inspired by Madonna’s “Truth or Dare” documentary from 1991. Each video will, of course, feature Pia Mia all dressed up in some of the collection’s staples, and will be promoted all over the social media starting from May 10. StyleHaul’s chief content officer Mia Goldwyn knew she had to think about something fresh to better approach the partnership and make things even more interesting, as “rather than shooting a more traditional branded content campaign, we wanted to do something more engaging and emotional, to track her and not only glimpse the clothing but also who she is as an artist and how clothing is integrated into her world.”

“Her creativity, confidence and unique sense of style make her a perfect addition to the brand,” Madonna told WWD, making us wonder what it might feel like to be fully endorsed by one of the XX century’s ultimate stars. “The fact that Madonna chose me to do this literally makes me die,” answered Pia Mia, who called WWD too from the set of her first ever Material Girl advertisement campaign, set to be released in July. As for her perspective on both music and the social media, Pia proved to have an open mindset and to value humbleness more than anything: in contrast to most of her fellow colleagues, she does personally answer her followers whenever she can.

“Music is my way to get out what I’m feeling, and so is fashion. Those are the two ways I express myself exactly how I want to. When I’m onstage, you’re getting 100 percent of my life story. I’m not afraid to share things, good or bad. […] I run all my socials and I’m very interactive with everyone; it’s really me helping my fans take selfies or pick clothes. I never had that many friends growing up, so my fans are my friends. They always make me feel better.”

Mango Gets Into the Bohemian Spirit for Spring 2016

Fashion

Tie-dye prints, relaxed lines and billowy gowns… Mango unveils its Bohemian Spirit April 2016 lookbook, alternating casual-chic proposals with more sensual, yet always hippy-chic and exquisitely embroidered ensembles. Mango’s Bohemian Spirit spring 2016 lookbook took Dutch model Esti van Balen to Cadaqués, a precious coastal town in Costa Brava, in the province of Girona, Spain, along with Belgium-born Barcelona/Paris-based fashion photographer Quentin de Briey, who perfectly captured the whole bohemian essence of the Spanish brand translating it into an even more relaxed, sun-soaked mood.

De Briey also gave this lookbook an artistic, one-of-a-kind turn, thanks to his attention to details, passion for uncontaminated landscapes and vintage-looking pictures that are one of his hallmarks. Besides working in and out of his studios for many international labels, De Briey has a long-time collaboration with Vogue Spain, where you can get acquainted with his exquisite work. Like most of Quentin de Briey’s editorial campaigns, this Mango pictorial also deals more with art rather than being mere advertising means, as the landscape, the models and the outfits look like shots from another, glamorous era.

This has, of course, to do with Mango’s choice to focus on easy-to-wear garments in vibrant, color-blocking and ton-sur-ton earthy colors as well, as they quickly change their appearance becoming haute couture kind of pieces, especially thanks to the loads of frills, intricate crochet embroideries and lovely openwork detailing that decorate most of the proposals. Aside from the vast array of colorful ensembles, Mango came up also with some dreamlike total white proposals that could be worn either at the seaside or at one of these upcoming summery parties, ranging from short late-Sixties-inspired models to airy A-line dresses.

Decorative embroideries, cutouts and lace appliqués flirtatiously get along pretty well with the collection’s casual denim jackets and feminine accessories, among which it will be very hard to choose the metallic golden or the silver ones. Aside from the bracelets, this Bohemian Spirit lookbook doesn’t rely that much on a boho-approved accessory line, denoting the label’s willingness to prove ‘less is more’ indeed especially when it comes to summer boho looks. That’s also the case for the clothing line itself, wherein lightweight fabrics almost solely cover the models’ bodies acting as elegant ladylike frocks or waist-hugging strap dresses. As for the latter, it’s indeed with the strappy dresses that Mango fully goes into its sexiest mode, yet always choosing to bare either the upper parts with large, plunging sleeveless sides, or the legs with short hems.

Button-up denim skirts emphasize the campaign’s playful atmosphere, while the back-stitched leather strap sandals complete most of the looks accentuating their boho-chic appeal. Cropped silhouettes, along with zigzagged navy sweaters, crop style wide-leg trousers and skirts with ruffled hems add a marine vibe to the entire collection, making it possible for those who prefer cozier pieces when it comes to summer, to combine easiness with a Sixties-inspired, Provence-based glamorous style.
