Jaxepedia On Model Jessica Stem

“I have so many products—I’m constantly being sent things, and I’m constantly buying new ones. I’m very much into beauty, and I feel like I really know, after several years in the business, what works best for me. I have a lot of travel-sized products like Herbal Essences Hello Hydration—which is a great shampoo and conditioner combo, and I’ve used everything. I actually discovered it because my boyfriend uses it! I love it. I get compliments from hairdressers I’ve been working with for years, saying, ‘This is the best your hair has ever looked, what are you using?’ and I’m like, ‘Herbal Essences!’ [Laughs] Raw Botanicals Glistening Hair Balm is a great product too—it has real bananas in it! It’s great for the beach or running outside because it has UV protection. But I try not to put too much product in my hair unless it’s really dry from working a lot. I just feel like my shampoo and conditioner is enough. ”

Jaxepedia: Famous Vogue Photographer, Helmut Newton

This German born fashion photographer, was considered a major innovator in the industry. Helmut Newton introduced elaborate themes and subjects that still continue to influence fashion photography today. Newton creates implied or ambiguous narratives that often center on the themes of girl-power, which he records with a detached sense of amusement or irony. In his earlier work Helmut Newton favored settings of great luxury and wealth in Paris, while his more recent work he often uses harsher, more modern backdrops.

Jaxepedia On Sex In The City Style

I was watching a late night rerun of “Sex in the City” and looking at the fashion, I mentally noted how sometimes Hollywood really gets it right. With in one episode you get a healthy dose of classic, trendy, street and vintage fashion with all the “Rock the Look” attitude you can stand. These girls really know how to have fun with their style, plus they are a great example of wearing your look with confidence. Who was your favorite?

Kaizen Beauty Students Make-A-Wish Using Their Style & Talent

I have always embraced the idea that “STYLE” is all around us. It isn’t just about a magazine add. It’s in a smile, it’s in a laugh, or it’s in a group of inspired young artists donating their talents to a worthy cause. I was fortunate to experience all of these examples of style today while spending time with an unconventionally chic blend of raw talent being trained at the Kaizen Beauty Academy. President of the Pembroke Pines Florida school, Jackie Nepola, brought her brightest students together to raise funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation in their grand re-opening Kut-a-thon and I made sure I was there to bring you all the highlights of this fun event. Upon arriving, I was greeted by American Vocal Academy Music Community members, D.J Foxwell (Dani Navarro) and Pop Artist Tiffany Luna spinning his awesome mixes. Kaizen students like Steven and Mathieu, among many others were donating their creative talents to glamorize all those who came out for a festive day of face painting, pink hair extensions, posh manicures, fab facials, stylish cuts, and amazing messages by Dr. Ted Berger (Chiropractic Physician). A constant flow of fresh faces to beautify kept Kaizen Beauty Academy’s most promising talent inspired and I look forward to seeing more of their trend setting savvy skills in the near future.

All my best to my new friends! Thank you for showing me a wonderful time.

Jaxepedia Features Audry Hepburns Fashion History

Audrey Hepburn (born Audrey Kathleen Ruston; 4 May 1929 – 20 January 1993)

This stunning yet simple black cocktail dress which Audrey Hepburn wore in the 1954 romantic comedy Sabrina is – believe it or not – one of the most controversial frocks in cinema history. It helped to make Sabrina one of the most stylish films of the 1950s – and to establish its young star’s famous chic gamine look. It also marked her first collaboration with Hubert de Givenchy, the French couturier, with whom her style would be inextricably linked for the rest of her life.

Hollywoods Rare Moments

Ella Fitzgerald & Marilyn Monroe listening to jazz at Hollywood’s Tiffany Club in 1955 (via ellafitzgerald.com)

“I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt. It was because of her that I played the Mocambo, a very popular nightclub in the ’50s. She personally called the owner of the Mocambo (who had refused to book Fitzgerald because she was black), and told him she wanted me booked immediately, and if he would do it, she would take a front table every night. She told him – and it was true, due to Marilyn’s superstar status – that the press would go wild. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. The press went overboard… After that, I never had to play a small jazz club again. She was an unusual woman – a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it.”

Celebrity Spotlight with Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn with Grace Kelly

There were so many words used to describe Actress Audrey Hepburn- charming, beautiful, effervescent, waif like, glamorous, fashionable, magical and these words still don’t compare to the way she could light up the screen. The only way to experience the spell Audrey cast is to watch the wonderful films that she made. She seemed so effortlessly chic and sophisticated that you would never have guessed she would have been so modest within. “I’m not beautiful. My mother once called me an ugly duckling. But, listed separately, I have a few good features,” she said.
I hope you enjoy these rare photo’s featured today in my celebrity spotlight with Audrey Hepburn.

Chanel 2011 Fall Winter Paris Couture Collection Preview

Hello Truffles Girls,
It’s that time again and what better fashion review to do for fall than Chanel – The little black dress, the tweed suit, the quilted leather handbag, and the first-ever designer perfume—these are just some of Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel’s lasting contributions to fashion. Little did she know when she opened her small millinery shop in Paris in 1913 that she was laying the foundation for what would become one of the world’s most illustrious fashion houses in the world. Chanel quickly became the rage among upper-crust eager to don her modishly boyish dresses made of unfussy jersey.  In 1983, 12 years after Cocos passing, Karl Lagerfeld assumed creative control and the house was reborn into all its glory once again leaving us breathless year after year with fabulous creations that celebrate the magnificence of our iconic Coco.  So that brings us to the latest Chanel show for Fall 2011 in Paris. Lagerfeld recently acquired a full set of stills from 1927’s apocalyptic sci-fi classic Metropolis, signed by the film’s director Fritz Lang to its young star Brigitte Helm.  So I ask you, was it a sheer coincidence that there was a Metropolis feel to the set for his Paris Couture show? The backdrop for the presentation was right out of Lang’s mad scientist movie. The set was dark and glistening, like rain had just fallen. A perfect film noir atmosphere and Lagerfeld had the perfect script for it—Coco’s own life story- of coarse.. But, if the clothes themselves were any guide, he also wanted to preserve Coco’s mystery. The collection was dominated by shades of black, gray, and midnight blue with odd shots of fushia. Even when Lagerfeld used white, he defused it with a drizzle of dark beading or a shadowy veil or even a glittery black tank.  I was just crazy about the layered skirts that broke away from his usual slim knit silhouette. The rocker edged lace mixed with fingerless gloves and calf hugging boots. Karl may have cast a dark shadow over fall couture this year but he shows us that even dark times can be immensely seductive.

Falling Over For Thigh Highs

It’s not surprising that as the weather turns cooler, our toes go searching for a- little more coverage. But just when you thought that last years ankle boots were terribly cute,  the grand master designers are looking to keep our legs warm as well as the boots go knee and thigh high. To what do we owe this shocking extreme? To Fashion of coarse.. In the words of Coco Chanel herself, “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. ” … And I will definitely be happening in a pair of these boots this year. 🙂 Check out my top 5 favorites for Fall 2011.

Roberto Cavalli 2012 Resort Trend Preview

Hello Truffles Girls,
I’m back with a beautiful runway collection that will surely inspire your fun, playful side. Famed fashion designer Roberto Cavalli shared his acid-toned print resort collection with us and I’m hear to bring you a sneek peak of what’s coming up for 2012. In case you haven’t seen the memo, influences from the 70’s and 80’s are back with multi coloured floral bouquet prints in monochromatic colors. Playful hues in lemon, lime, red, rose and royal left jaws dropping and some in tears. Tie-dye prints and acid washes on a wide variety of fabrics and skins, from chiffon and crepe de chine, to printed knits and  leathers set the mood for a collection with pieces for everyone. I also even saw a new and unusual leopard print. As if our eyes hadn’t had enough, hand painted ivory, red and black completed the show in true cavalla style demonstrating that a younger more casual approach was on his mind. For the jewelery, reflective fabric with crystals and pearls, created a new techno iridescence. Fine bone porcelain was used to make floral chokers and bracelets with hand painted gold leaf detailing further accentuated the floral motifs. The classic Cavalli serpent this time was made from tiny engraved gold flowers arranged to form the shape of the snake. So what can we take for our own personal style from the sneek peak of what’s to come? Well even if you tend to wear a lot of black, mixing in some of the beautiful colors by adding a bold top or skirt is what I recommend. If you are more fashion forward, definitely go for the print pants and don’t be afraid to play with romantic skirt lengths and flirty layers of ruffles as well. Lace touches are always a must have in any wardrobe any time of year and they are terrific layered under jackets and suits for fall and winter. As a rule, don’t mix to many different prints together but have fun mixing the new styles in with your wardrobe basics.
