Two words: Lupita Nyong’o. How absolutely stunning was she?! She looked like a goddess in her pale pastel blue Prada gown and plunging neckline. All award season she’s been nailing red carpet looks and quite frankly putting many of her comrades to shame. What I love about her style is the bold color! It’s so easy to go the traditional route with black or navy, but I like that Lupita choses to make a statement and stand out from the crowd!
Now that I’ve given Lupita the attention she well deserved, I can’t help but gush about the GUYS’ style on the red carpet. Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor winners Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto (swoon) killed it at the oscars in their white tuxedo blazers. Whites and nudes proved to be a popular trend for both men and women alike. Ryan Seacrest was seen sporting the all white trend and Best Actress Winner Kate Blanchett stunned in a nude Armani Prive number. This Oscar palette of pale blues, nudes and whites are sure to be favorites with the spring season fast approaching!
So in case you weren’t aware, last week was Milan Fashion Week, and if there’s one thing I can take away, is that the Italians know what’s up. They present fashion in an absolutely stunning artistic way; it’s hard not to be anything but impressed. Roberto Cavalli surprised fashion goers at his Fall 2014 Fashion Show (photo below) Saturday February 22nd. Models strutted around a circular water pool surrounded by flames. If that doesn’t grab your attention, the beautiful white and black ornamented gowns, blouses, and coats will. His beige, black and white palette uniquely showcases the design and aesthetic of the brand. Beaded details, along with fringe and sheer peekaboos are sure to be Fall favorites!
So it’s no secret that leather is HUGE this season (go check out my post from a few weeks ago, “Leather Weather”). It’s classic, comfortable, and goes with everything, BUT it can also expensive. And if you’re like me, and a broke college student, then buying leather apparel isn’t exactly ideal. I mean there’s rent, books, gas, and bar money, so let’s face it, not many of us can afford that soft italian leather jacket we’ve secretly been eyeing. In my opinion, it’s all about the details and how you accessorize! Try finding a jacket, like my BDG camo jacket (Urban Outfitters), that has subtle leather details on the zippers, pockets, and shoulder. Also, leather jewelry like my BP black, studded wrap bracelet from Nordstrom is great accessory if you’re looking to add a little edge. And finally, if you can find some money in your budget, consider splurging on a leather purse. My black and white Kate Spade is my go-to-bag. It’s classic and is perfect for any season!
