The Prettiest Channel No. 5 Ad

I don't like the current advertisement campaign for Chanel No. 5. I just think the lady in the current campaign is a little plain looking. Who is she anyway? I love the last ad campaign where they had Nicole Kidman. There is nobody in the world, other than Nicole Kidman, who can represent the class and elegance that immortalize Chanel No. 5.

Fashionable Cross Dressing

Knowing that I'm obsessed with suits during my workdays, my friends told me that I could get some really stylish tailored suits from Rag and Bone. I had never heard of this label before so I was curious to check it out. I was told that this label was hot and was faved by lots of celebrities. Looking at the entire 2010 spring collection, I feel that the clothes are too saggy for me and somewhat too masculine. I don't see what tailoring my friends were telling me about. All I see from the collection are pieces that I can easily find in men's clothing stores, and I seriously don't see what special craftsmanship they have...they seem to be pretty ordinary to my naked eyes. Maybe they just don't show well in the pictures. Maybe I will be very impressed if only I can actually have the clothing in my hand....Anyway, I do find two ensembles that I like. I'm a feminine girly girl, so unisex clothing, which seems to be the trademark of this label, isn't really something I frequently put on. I like wearing suits during my workdays but only suits that have lots of feminine details and tailoring..... But I can definitely see myself happy wearing these two ensembles. After all, cross dressing every now and then will just make my workday look such a chic contrast to my usual girly image.

Miley Cyrus's Choice Of Dress

Photo Source:

Miley Cyrus did it again. On her LA premier of her new movie "The Last Song", she showed up in a black one shoulder dress that is elegant, and stylish, but only for women in their 30s.. I don't understand, Miley Cyrus is only a teenager, why her choice of dresses is always so matured beyond her years????

Halle Berry's Plain Jane Look

Without make-up and gorgeous designer dresses, Halle Barry looks just like one of the plain Janes who shop at Wal-Mart... which means the 90% of us :)

Balenciaga 2010 Spring Collection

I admire the workmanship the designer put in the leather work and tailoring details. No doubt there is a lot of creativity in the design and the cutting. But is the enthusiasum of keeping the Balenciaga tradition of forward creativity somehow pushing the designer to overlook Cristobal Balenciaga's sensitivity to feminine beauty? I feel that the collection is way too masculine for me. Besides, both the color palette and the fabric of the clothes seem to make the collection more fitting for the fall / winter season than the spring / summer... What do you think?
