Rihanna’s new fragrance, Reb’l Fleur has been described as “an intense and daring fruity chypre, composed of sophisticated floral notes: tuberose, violet and hibiscus, – with a splash of coconut water, – over the light and smooth base, the combination of the final notes evokes the impression of warm skin. The perfume was created by Caroline Sabas and Marypierre Julien of Givaudan.

Looking at the outfit that she wore for the launch some would say she looked more like the monster from Disney’s Monsters Inc, instead of the normal fashionista we all love. It only goes to show, that even the best can also get it wrong.

David Beckham For H&M

From next year February, H&M will carry a men’s bodywear range designed by LA Galaxy and footballer David Beckham.

This isn’t the usual collaborations we’ve come to expect from H&M, instead it will be a long-term distribution partnership, that will be launched on February 2 2012 worldwide, in time for Valentine’s Day.

Beckham has since made a comment that choosing H&M to retail the new underwear was “the final piece in a jigsaw” of developing the range. “In H&M we have found the perfect partner to collaborate with going forward”.

Beckham was previously the face of Armani, where his four year stint as the face of its underwear line saw the designer label’s turnover double.

This is something we hope to see in H&M’s annual turnover after its launch.
As with past collaborations, such as last novembers Lanvin range which sold out within hours, after fans camped outside the high street chain for hours just to be the first to grab an outfit.

Fashion weekly update

Hey, my fashion junkies are you ready for another weeks update on the world of fashion. Well here goes.

Gossip!!!!!

20110716-101814.jpg

If the fashion rumour mill last week should be believed, John Galliano next gig could be designing for Topshop. According to Vogue UK reports that Sir Philip Green and Galliano, where in early stages of the discussion while attended their mutual friend Kate Moss’s wedding. Unfortunately Sir Philip Green himself has now commented: “I saw John Galliano at Kate’s wedding last Friday. I did not discuss any business with him then, nor have I since.”
Well that sure stops that rumour. Now on to the next!!!

Rihanna the new face of Emporio Armani Underwear!

Rihanna takes over as the new face of Emporio Armani Underwear replacing Megan Fox, who replaced Victoria Beckham as the face of Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans in October 2009. Graciously though Megan is now stepping down to make way for new Armani face Rihanna, who was spotted meeting with Roberta Armani in Milan in May.
Apparently her first campaign for the brand has already been shot on location in New York and is set to launch worldwide in September.

Model of the moment: Raquel Zimmerman

Love, love, love Raquel Zimmerman and this Fall she seems to have taken over all the campaigns. Doing Lanvin’s Fall 2011 ad campaign with Karen Elson with images shot by Steven Meisel, sporting floppy hats and capes. [Models.com Facebook]

Alexander Wang’s second ad,Gritty Fall 2011 Campaign, where Fabien Baron shot Zimmermann in an abandoned grain factory from the ’20s in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
Karl Templer, was at the shoot and talks about Wangs direction for the scene as “something really gritty and raw to contrast with the polished richness of what we showed on fall runway.”

The accompanying campaign video, set to a soundtrack of SebastiAn’s “CTFO” featuring MIA, was projected at several locations around Manhattan (Houston and McDougal, 14th and University, 14th Street and 8th Avenue) on Wednesday through to Friday this week.

For those of us not in New York this week here’s the full video.

Oooh I bet you thought I forgot Berlin fashion week will put that up next been really busy this week, work and getting sick. I’m going through my pictures and video’s right now so shouldn’t be long. :0) !!!


Dare to bare…

Ladies, it’s time to tone up those tummies because the crop top trend is here to stay. Featured in the Spring/ Summer ’11 collections by Haakan, Chanel and Rachel Comey, the designers made the look their own in very different ways; Haakan in tough long-sleeved leather, Chanel with sheer panels and minimalist monochrome for Rachel Comey. So you better start those sit-ups girls if you want to be in with the fashion ‘it’ crowd this summer…

The A- listers have also been putting their very own style stamp on the trend, with some going all out and  flashing the flesh, whilst others keep it subtle.

 

 

Ever the body confident Rihanna dared to bare both her midriff and perfect pins at the launch of her perfume waaay back in February. She paired the look with elongating nude platforms-see the never-ending legs are probably just an illusion, bet she’s got stumps like the rest of us…

 

On any normal person I’m sure this get-up would look frankly, well ridiculous, but on Daisy Lowe, it just works. It maybe the Versace credentials that makes this Aztec Print crop top and colourful high-waisted skirt combo look great, it maybe Daisy’s quirky style that pulls it off but it’s probably just the fact that she’s a gorgeous model.

Kelly Rowland flaunts her fab abs at the X Factor auditions in this colour pop crop top by Twenty8Twelve, and who can blame her with the hours she must have put in at the gym for a tummy as toned as that!

 

For us mere mortals that may not be as body confident as some of our favourite celebs, a great way to get the look and still keep covered up is by teaming your crop top with a high-waisted knee-length skirt like Daisy’s or trousers. Why not head over to Tellusfashion and check out this Baby Pink Crop Top. Don’t let the cute name fool you, this sexy leather crop top is anything but rainbows and butterflies. Designed by Flik Hall, her work “embodies contemporary luxury, synonymous with edgy restraint” by combining interesting and contrasting fabrics – check her out today!

 


A whiter shade of pale…

The fashion runways were awash with more white than a Daz advert this spring/summer season. Featured on the catwalk of Christian Cota, Haakan and Gianfranco Ferré the models stunned in the clean, crisp look that turned even the darkest angels into erethral, whiter than white goddesses…

Wanting to get a piece of the fashion action, the celebs soon followed suit and white washed their own looks. Here’s a round-up of the best dressed women in white:

Before Cheryl Cole went into the hiding after the whole X Factor palava, she was spotted looking sensational in this white Stephane Rolland number at Cannes this year. The plunging neckline, gold accessories and sleek hair all amounted to a very sophisticated and sexy look.

Kim Kardashian simply oozes glamour in this halter Lanvin dress. The Grecian style and cinched in waist emphasise Kim’s fabulous curves and the flowing romantic look of the dress makes a refreshing change from her beloved body-con!

As always, Rihanna puts her own edgy twist on the latest trends, this time choosing to work her white look in androgynous chic. She keeps her Max Azria suit sexy with a daring neckline, feminine make-up and gorgeously tousled hair.
