I absolutely adore Kate Hudson.
I’ve been a fan of hers since Almost Famous, idolized her after How to Lose A Guy in Ten Days, and now just love seeing what she’s up to. I find her to be one of the most relatable stars, as well as one of the happiest. Her sleek sense of style, along with an eye for color, only enhances her natural beauty. Her absolute best accessory is, of course, her beaming smile. J’adore!
Femininity and the Fifties

Lingerie dresses were paired with tweed and boy-cut coats, creating the most chic walk of shame ensembles I have ever seen. As the models filed down the runway, there was a juxtaposition between a traditional notion of femininity and a non-conventional, borderline androgynous sense of it.
Below I included my favorite pieces for next season. The looks I posted pertain to the über feminine side of Marc Jacobs’ creations, which include soft, flattering tops and pencil skirts, as well as a fun halter number that shows a lighter side of the French fashion line.
What I loved about the show was the concept! The “grand hotel” theme was brilliant, with models coming out of different doors to march down the runway. American designer Jacobs added a cheeky final hurrah to the show; he came out of the “hotel room” door wearing his menswear line pajamas, as if he was a hotel guest with the models.
Since the arrival of my Englishman, I’ve become a big fan of Ralph Lauren. Vogue.com is one of my favorite sites, and I am SO happy I took a little break from my thesis work to check out their latest … Continue reading
