when in: Rome

Rooney Mara in Balenciaga


The Rome Film Festival is still pretty young, but already it has more success than me and knows plenty of celebrities. This year's red carpet was beautiful but there's one look that blew me off my feet.

There's nothing more exciting than seeing one of these looks walking down a red carpet. Everything from the shoes and the stunning sheerness of the dress to matching the lips to the carpet and the simple hair do is breathtaking in a very soothing way. In other words, it's hopeful. It makes me believe there's a better world out there when it comes to fashion and styling, there is a future and we're witnessing it first hand. You should all be really happy about this. I sure am.

Rooney Mara, that's one to follow.

See you all soon, xo.

PS: Sorry for my lack of blogging but I'm back now so let's roll.

must-have: Alexa Chung // It





The forever it-girl, and style icon, and tv host, and editor and one of my favourite girls in the fashion world launches her new book, appropriately entitled "It". Another appropriate title would be "Bible" but I heard that was taken.
There is no self-called fashionista, fashion blogger, fashion lover in this universe that doesn't want this book more than anything right now. I can't stop thinking about it, it's always on my mind, I see it everywhere I go, it's the best thing I don't own yet, "what do you mean I forgot to eat, I feel fine".
Anyway, what I mean is we all have a lot to learn from this woman so obviously you all need to get this book, right now. We should have an online book reading sometime, don't forget to bring the cookies.

eye candy: Robert Pattinson for Dior Homme


 Robert Pattinson for Dior Homme from VOGUE on Vimeo.


Robert looks absolutely breathtaking in this film, I don't even have words to describe it, and that is not good on my image as a blogger.
The mistery in his eyes, the way he carries himself, his attitude, the styling, I mean, I cannot even begin to explain the effect it has on me. Haven't felt like this since I watched Bel Ami *post inappropriate comment here*.
This is what I really wanna say: it was definitely worth the wait.
PS: If you look closely you can see there's a blonde girl in there too, she seems lovely.

The video has already +2M on youtube and I am not surprised, this man knows how to attract a crowd.

eye candy: Isn't She Lovely, Isn't She Wonderful

Amanda Seyfried - Ed Sullivan Theatre in New York City

Amanda Seyfried

Balmain Resort 2014

Amanda Seyfried shows up in an amazing Balmain ensemble for her guest appearance on Late Show with David Letterman (July 30, 2013) as a second stop on promoting her latest movie 'Lovelace'.
She looks stunning as always but what I really like about this look is the way it was styled with the nude shoes, the light accessories and the simple 'with a twist' hairstyle. There was a possibility of this look washing her out because of her skin tone, but that makeup, specially that bright lip gloss, really puts it all together as if it's meant to be. The runway look is a bit more rebellious, younger with an edge, and Amanda made it classier, softer and really fun, it's always good to see a versatile outfit that can be styled in many ways and still look original, unique. I absolutely love it.
PS: She did a really fun trick with her dog Finn during the interview, check out it out here.

must-have: Gold moustache watches


Jane Moustache Watch

Sally Moustache Watch

I just love this watches. I saw them on boohoo.com and I couldn't get over them. I'm still very indecisive about which one I should get though, so give me a hint on what you think of them, they both look lovely.
I mean just look at them, can you blame me?
Price: €12
Where to buy: boohoo.

high-street style: Nicole Richie




Absolutely love this black and white look on Nicole Richie. The edge with the leather pants contrasting the 'flowiness' of the white blouse, the hard and soft engage perfectly into a chic and cool "accessory-free" ensemble. And the hairstyle just puts it all together as if it's closing a cycle.
I heard someone say these kind of pants were designed for tall people and I couldn't disagree more. Nicole proves yet once again that short girls can rock a killer look too, fashion's not only for 5´7" and over.

vma's: Misstep

Naya Rivera in Paco Rabanne
 
Ellie Goulding in Amato Couture by Furne One
       
Allison Williams in Valentino

Coco Rocha in Fausto Puglisi Leather Jacket



Miriam and Olivia Nervo



The media coverage of the VMA's must have missed some steps when walking down the stairs at the red carpet because they obviously did not notice these amazing looks.

Anyway, I thought I'd let you know about them. Enjoy it, pass the word, post a comment on what you think of them, be happy, xo.
