Lara Stone, Daphne Groeneveld, Kristen McMenamy and more for LOVE #6

After a full day of traveling, one lost suitcase and spending two hours trying to track it down, I finally arrived in Seattle exhausted.  To my surprise this morning though, I woke up to a treat from the magazine world, this spread for the already extremely anticipated LOVE Magazine is gorgeous and features Lara Stone, Daphne Groeneveld, Kristen McMenamy, Mariacarla Boscono, Katie Grand and Panos Yiapanis.  The beauty story was shot by Mert & Marcus and features all the models crying, which I am hoping they don't make every single picture like in the issue. Regardless, this is awesome, check it out!

LOVE Magazine Fall Covers

I am OBSESSED with these fall covers for LOVE Magazine shot by Mert and Marcus.  These are seriously gorgeous and have two of my (and apparently all of the fashion world's) favorite it girls Marc by Marc Jacobs campaign star Elle Fanning and Miu Miu's Hailee Steinfeld.  Not to mention Kick Ass star Chloe Moretz look amazing on her cover.  These are just the first three and five more covers will be released in September.  These are going to be hard September covers to beat, so which one is your favorite?

San Francisco Dreamin'

I was bored the other night and put this look together on Polyvore in honor of my trip to San Francisco and Seattle coming up.  I basically want everything or something like everything in the picture below, but what do you think?  Cute or not really?

Remembering Amy Winehouse through editorials

So as most of you probably know, Amy Winehouse passed away this weekend, and I think it's incredibly sad that such a young and talented person lost her life probably as a result of addiction.  Over the years, Winehouse has inspired a lot of editorials and her wing-tipped eye liner, bee hive hair do and rock 'n' roll style has greatly influenced fashion.  Here's a look at some healthy and happy pictures of Winehouse and the editorials she inspired.

LOVE: Lace Masks

I think this is the perfect trend for a costume party where you would rather look sexy and mysterious than wear a big mask on your face.  Sofia Coppola made use of them in "Marie Antoinette," and Karl Lagerfeld decked his models out with lace masks for the fall 2011 couture shows.  So what do you think, hot or not?

OBSESSED: We are Handsome Memoirs Swimwear

Oh the things I would do for that wolf bikini!  You can find these awesome swimsuits at farfetch.com and discothisfriday.com.  Who do you think does bathing suits with animals better?  While We are Handsome did it first, Wildfox is doing a pretty good job themselves.

LOVE: Daphne Groeneveld and Lindsey Wixson for W Magazine

Thank you W Magazine for combining two of my favorite models, Lindsey Wixson and Daphne Groeneveld, for this awesome shoot styled by Edward Enninful shot by Alesdair McLellan.

Jeffrey Campbell: Uptown Girls vs. Downtown Girls

While I am not totally crazy about the shoes in the Jeffrey Campbell fall 2011 lookbook, I am really loving the energy and the theme of uptown vs. downtown.  What do you think?

OBSESSED: Wildfox Couture Swimwear 2012

Ohhh my gosh.  Wildfox Couture is making swimwear.  These suits are to die for, and the printed ones remind me of the We are Handsome swimsuits, which I'll post about a little later.  I adore the florals in this collection and the skeleton one piece.  The only negative is that I have a feeling these might be a little on the pricey side though.  UPDATE: I also just realized these were shot by Mark Hunter, The Cobra Snake, and I have to say I am totally impressed, I would have never guessed!

Charlotte Free for Jeremy Scott x Adidas

Check out this awesome video showcasing Jeremy Scott's fall collection for Adidas featuring Charlotte Free and her pink hair, the infamous panda sneakers and some really cool black flats that I might just have to get my hands on!

Male models lip-syncing to Elvis Presley

Here's a little treat to start your morning right, enjoy this video by Justin Wu and Models.com featuring incredibly handsome and seemingly charismatic male models lip syncing to "A Little Less Conversation" by Elvis Presley.

Resort 2012: Prada

Resort 2012: Miu Miu

I adore this Miu Miu collection and the lightning bolt dresses are to die for.  My only issue with both the Miu Miu resort collection and the Prada resort collection is that these girls were photographed sitting down which makes me wonder how the clothes actually fit.  However, that aside, Miucca Prada has done it again!

Fall 2011 Couture: Jean Paul Gaultier

LOVE: Floral Crowns

A look that has always been used in editorials to give a sort of ethereal and feminine feel are floral crowns.  In the past few weeks, I have seen lots of people wearing them in photos online.  While I don't necessarily suggest making one and wearing it to lunch with your girlfriends, it's perfect for parties or in Kate Moss's case, weddings.  Here's some cute ways to wear them, and click here for a great mood board on them from The Stylish Wanderer's blog.

Fall 2011 Couture: Elie Saab

Elie Saab delivered a fairy tale couture collection full of red carpet dazzling gowns that I'm sure will be in demand and commonly seen come awards season.

Elle Fanning for Marc by Marc Jacobs

I am designating Elle Fanning as the coolest and prettiest 13-year-old girl.  I am totally obsessed with her in general and I think she is the perfect face to breathe some life into my favorite Marc by Marc Jacobs collection in awhile.  Enjoy!

Sarah Jessica Parker for Vogue

I adore this spread of Sarah Jessica Parker and her family shot by Mario Testino.  She really is fabulous at any age and her daughters are ADORABLE.

Neighborhood Watch - NAAG

Heading off to North Carolina for a long weekend!  Here's a great summer shoot from NAAG Magazine, anyone have any suggestions for cool places in Asheville?

Santigold and Spank Rock dance for T by Alexander Wang

For the Fall 2011 collection of T by Alexander Wang, the designer enlisted musicians Santigold and Spank Rock for his ad campaign.  Last season it was Ashley Smith and Diplo, so it seems that he is keeping with his theme of having DJ's represent his laid back brand.

Giambattista Valli Fall 2011 Couture: beauty and backstage photos

Fall 2011 Couture: Giambattista Valli

Top Campaigns: Hugo Boss Orange

There's been a lot of fall campaigns released recently and with the exception of Miu Miu, I found them all pretty lackluster, but I really enjoy Hugo Boss Orange's fall campaign starring Eniko Mihalik, Lily Donaldson and Dree Hemingway.  It's simple, laid-back, approachable and cute.  The adorable puppy makes up for the horrible furry boots, and I think this campaign has become my favorite for fall 2011.

Fall 2011 Couture: Azzedine Alaia

So some of you may know the talented designer Alaia as the man behind the infamous dress Cher Horowitz gets robbed in in Clueless... You know the scene:
Cher- "Oh no... you don't understand... this is an Alaia..."
Robber- "An a-what-a?"

All right now that I've got it out of my system here's the gorgeous return of Azzedine Alaia to the couture runway and yes, he makes more than body con red dresses.  In fact, his dresses are gorgeous with velvet and fur details.  Enjoy!

Totally Obsessed: Tavik Swimwear Summer 2011

I just bought the Sophia palm tree top and I can't be more excited.  I've wanted it for a really long time and I may be behind on this, but I haven't seen bathing suit tops like it before and I've become obsessed.  I tried on a Sophia top when I was shopping recently to gage what size I should order and it was actually super flattering, granted I wear about a 34B and don't know what it would look like on girls with bigger chests.  Here's a look at the awesome Tavik Swimwear summer 2011 collection and a few more Sophia tops from Free People.

What's your opinion on Sophia tops?  Weird or awesome?  I'm voting for awesome, obviously.

Valentino Fall 2011 Couture Beauty and Backstage

Fall 2011 Couture: Valentino

Leave it to Valentino to lift the level of beauty at Paris's couture fashion week.  I adore the gold ethereal headbands the models are wearing, and I can see celebrities like Diane Kruger, Elle Fanning, Anne Hathaway and Claire Danes strolling proudly down the red carpet in some of these gorgeous dresses.  I predict come awards season there's going to be some fierce competition if they haven't been snagged already. 

Fashion Evolution: Emma Watson from Sorcerer's Stone to Deathly Hallows

Emma Watson started playing Hermoine Granger when she was only 11 years old, and now ten years later, she is 21 and quite the gorgeous and fashionable woman.  Here's a look at her red carpet style evolution starting with the Sorcerer's Stone and ending with her beautiful display in Oscar de la Renta for the Deathly Hallows.
