Best Dresses at the 2013 Emmys

I have to say I am very excited about this post, because it has been a while since I have seen so many gorgeous dresses at an awards ceremony. And since I could not decide which gowns I like more, I figured a "Top 10" would not suffice, so I made a selection based on colors or prints. 

This kind of top is new for me, so I hope most of you like it. For details on the actresses and the designers they wore go to the blog's Facebook page, where I updated every outfit as soon as the celebrities hit the red carpet. Oh, and for better quality photos, just click on the photo. 

Enjoy and have a great week!

Lady Gaga wears Maison Martin Margiela Couture in her new video

So, I'm sure you've seen Lady Gaga's new video, Applause, by now. As usual, regular does not come in mind when thinking about her or describing her outfits. While I was watching said new video, I couldn't help but notice the striking clothes and accessories, but the one that blew my mind was the green, white and black embelished jacket. 

I instantly knew where I had seen it and I thought it would be nice to let you guys know too (that is if you aren't already a fan of the brand, which would mean you've already recognized it as well). Well, it wears the signature of none other that Maison Martin Margiela and it's from the Fall 2013 Couture collection. 

The weird thing is that just a week ago I posted this photo of a Margiela look on the blog's Facebook page and you can actually see the outfit that has this jacket in the corner of that photo. Freaky coincidence, I know!

So, here are the photos with the jacket on the runway and all the moments that Gaga wears it in her new video! Enjoy!

The singer wore the Margiela jacket with a mirror and pins costume made by her sister, Natali Germanotta.

And here is the photo with the whole Maison Martin Margiela look:

Music meets high-fashion, Daft Punk meet Carine Roitfeld and Milla Jovovich

The Daft Punk guys are making quite the comeback. And they're more stylish than ever. The famous electronic duo has graced the pages of many magazines this year, clad in their brand new and sparkly Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane suits, proving they have that French fashion style within them. 

After a few photos taken by Mathieu César appeared in May in a digital spread of Carine Roitfeld's fashion magazine, CR Fashion Book, we now have the chance to peek at another set from the same photoshoot.  But there’s nothing boring about them, even if you can clearly tell the background is the same. The new snaps feature a very glamorous Milla Jovovich, also dressed in Saint Laurent (shocker!).

Here are the photos, I’ll let you check the awesomeness that comes when high-fashion meets electronic music!

PRADA has excellent taste in men

The Prada menswear campaigns are quickly becoming my favorites. After casting actors like Gary Oldman, Willem Dafoe, Jamie Bell or Garret Hedlund for last year's campaign, this season they chose other talented eye candies like Christoph Waltz, Ezra Miller and Ben Whishaw. 

Don't drool too much on the photos below!

H&M announces collaboration with Isabel Marant

A few hours ago, H&M announced its latest collaboration with a designer. The Isabel Marant for H&M Collection is set to launch on November 14, in about 250 H&M stores worldwide and online and it will feature clothes and accessories for women and teenagers, but also for men (this will be Marant's first collection for men). 

Fashionistas all over the world must be thrilled right now, as Isabel Marant is one of the coolest and most influential brands nowadays. It's highly likely you've seen her creations even though you may not realize it. There's no doubt you've seen more than once a girl in Isabel Marant wedge sneakers, Dicker ankle boots or the Cowboy boots. 

Here's the statement the designer gave regarding the colaboration and the collection, along with the first official photos and a short video.

I am flattered by this collaboration. H&M works with the best designers, and this invitation is an exciting honor. I aim at creating something real — something women want to wear in their everyday lives — with a certain carefree style. I think this is very Parisian: you dress up but don't pay too much attention to it, and you still look sexy. The collection is infused with this kind of easiness and attitude.

Fashion Face-off: The Valentino Jumpsuit

I've loved this jumpsuit ever since I saw it on Lena Dunham, back in January, at the premiere of the second season of "Girls". Although many might say it doesn't fit her weight or body type, I believe she is courageous and has the right attitude for wearing something like this. 
Today, a few months later, I saw it on none other than Miley Cyrus and it got my attention again. I'm not really a fan of Miley's, but I think she, as well, really owns this outfit. 

So, do you think both girls look gorgeous in the bow jumpsuit or would you have styled it differently?

And for those who are interested in buying it, you can find it on Moda Operandi.

Hot New Trend: Christian Louboutin 'Pivichic' Pumps

In this past week, while admiring the latest New York Fashion Week looks, I couldn't help but notice a gorgeous pair of patent leather and PVC stripe pumps on Sarah Jessica Parker. 

I admired them, then moved on. Then, two days ago I saw pictures of Katy Perry wearing a black version of the shoes, but since I don't really like her style or the outfit she was wearing, I didn't pay that much attention. But after seeing them today on Chloe Moretz I absolutely fell in love with the Louboutin heels. Girl sure knows how to dress-up and she's only 16 years old!

So, in true fashionista behaviour, I did a little research. It seems that the hot new shoes are called the "Pivichic" pumps and come in two colors: black and the amazing shade of coral that SJP is wearing. They're not for sale yet, but I'm sure as soon as they hit the shelves they'll be sold out. 

And if these 4 stars all wore the Pivichic pumps this week, imagine the craziness that's about to start once stylists and celebrities all over the world see or find out about them! It will be Pigalle or Un Bout mania all over again!

Here's how these ladies wore the Pivichic shoes. Which outfit do you enjoy the most?

Chloe Moretz at the Elle UK Style Awards 2013. She picked up the award for Next Future Icon while wearing a Stella McCartney dress and the Christian Louboutin Pivichic pumps.

Sarah Jessica Parker wore the pumps with a L'Agence fitted dress and a striking blue Misha Nonoo fur coat for NYFW.

Kerry Washington at the ABC Studios. Kerry wore a Fendi sleeveless dress and a camel  Max Mara coat.

Katy Perry at a Hollywood pre-Grammy party. She paired the shoes with a Oscar de la Renta dress and  an Eddie Parker Jean clutch.

Remembering Lee Alexander McQueen

Today we're remembering l'enfant terrible, the pink sheep of fashion, the "romantic schizophrenic". 

The late Lee Alexander McQueen as we've known and understood him through his rare portraits and exquisite creations. 

 Like I've kept saying for the past 3 years, he will never be forgotten and will always be above all artists and fashion designers for me.
