Hudson news – Red dress alert!


Jennifer Hudson shuts the red carpet down at the Women Doing Good Awards in New York City. Her simple, fiery red draped mini is so sexy, and she’s got just the right amount of bling. Even though the Oscar winner hasn’t entirely given up on her scary-tall- platform heels, this time they don’t seem so heavy. The Woman looking good, indeed..

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 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?

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.

Xoxo,

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.

Christian Dior Resort 2012


Coral Caftan Dress

The sixties flavor was in full focus at the Dior 2012 Resort Show. It’s not just in those Liz Taylor-worthy caftans but the collection was filled with crochet dresses and gamine drop-waist dresses with ruffled hems made slightly exotic with bands of sequins. I personally loved the his clean lines and fresh comfortable style. My favorite looks included a fitted jacket with pleated skirt, print pants, coral caftan dress and Poka-dot blouse. The footwear (latticed raffia flats) and accessories (big resin bracelets for stacking up the arm Nancy Cunard-style) did as much work as the clothes in conveying the collection’s message. And let’s not forget the hats. Lovely.

While some of us are fashion savvy, there are those who are to timid to take risks. A true fashionista can allow herself the freedom to step away from conformity. In diva style, celebrities are stepping out in belted gowns and cocktail dresses with contrasting trims. Here are some gorgeous ideas for your inner fashionista.

Style Star: Evan Rachel Woods Goes Hollywood Glam


Marilyn Manson’s ex flame and “True Blood” star, Evan Rachel Woods is making some fashion changes. We’ve seen her in chains, leather, even show girl inspired rhinestone nakedness. Now it looks like she’s reinvented herself in Hollywood style glam.

Evan Wood in Elie Saab

Evan Rachel Wood struts the red carpet in a Elie Saab Fall 2011 dress at the Mildred Pierce HBO miniseries premiere in New York City. Once again, I am seeing  old Hollywood glamor take over the runways. I personally adore the style and feel that it’s time to embrace not only a more glamorous look but a classic and timeless silhouette.
