Inspiring Style: Top 5 Fashion Headlines3/03/2011
♥ It's official. Fashion designer John Galliano has finally been ousted as designer director at Christian Dior. This probably comes as a shock to none after his drunken, anti-Semitic tirade in Paris.
The controversial designer, who is known for his wild sense of style, has recently been compared to another fashion great, Alexander McQueen--but not necessarily for his fashion. Galliano plans to fight for his career.
♥♥ The 70s are back and in a big way! Women on the runways are donning flares and bell bottoms this season.
And although I love my skinny jeans, I would definitely rock the right pair of high-waisted, 70s-inspired style.
I mean, take a look at Katie Holmes over there. The combination of a new, shorter haircut and the flared jeans make for winning style.
The trick to wearing bell bottoms this season is to not rehash the flared jeans from the 90s, but instead to make sure you're wearing the high-waisted jeans with the extra, ultra flare!
♥♥♥ Some said the Oscars weren't really that memorable, but what I did find memorable were the 8 dresses that host Anne Hathaway wore that night.
And no, I wasn't in love with all of them, but I did go awe for a few. I'm assuming she was styled by Rachel Zoe, right?
Remember the Bryan Atwood heels she paired with the lady tux? Or how about that Oscar de la Renta fringe number?
But maybe James Franco gave her a run for her money in his dress, no?
Plus, if you are focusing on the great dresses from the Oscars, then you won't have to think about just how uninspiring the rest of the show was--I mean--so predictable, am I right?
♥♥♥♥ We all know that bright eyeshadow is a big trend for the Spring as it's been all over the runways recently. Orange is just one of the many colors that models have fashioned on their eyes, including the new Estee Lauder spring makeup line.
I think I might actually get bright and bold with my eye makeup this season as well; maybe try out some blue hues like this. I've wanted to get on the bright eyeshadow trend for some time now, as I believe I mentioned that last year. I promise to actually make good on that this spring.
♥♥♥♥♥ Honestly, is it really tacky for celebrities to show up at fashion shows? I mean, Blake Lively seems to think so--but what do you think? I think it's tacky that some celebs feel like they're so high and mighty that they can call out other celebs for going to support designers and models at shows--something that celebrities have been doing for a long time.
So although she's like the face of Chanel, Blake won't be attending the show. You know what else is tacky--Charlie Sheen--but that's another issue entirely. What do you think?
Apparently, she has either retracted that statement or is giving reason to why she is not attending the Chanel show.
