Gigi Hadid To Walk for The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2015

Fashion

In an adorable surprise, 20-year-old Gigi Hadid received the news of a lifetime. The model thought she was in for an everyday casting for the upcoming Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2015, but she didn’t know the news that awaited her. Gigi Hadid’s lifelong dream of walking a Victoria’s Secret show has been confirmed, and what better debut stage than the 20th anniversary show?

Gigi Hadid for Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2015

Victoria’s Secret shared a short video clip on Twitter, showing this moment and the gorgeous model’s reaction was priceless. You could clearly see the excitement in her reaction, and the fact that her dream was actually coming true is a beautiful thing for anyone to see. Along with the video clip, the lingerie brand posted a cohesive sweet tweet: “We [love] surprises so here’s a BIG one for @GiGiHadid at the #VSFashionShow castings! See you on the runway, Gigi.”

To show her appreciation and joy for the announcement, Hadid lit up her Instagram. She posted a photo of her crying from the casting, with the post, “Couldn’t keep back my tears!!!! Anyone that grew up with me knows that getting this show has been a dream of mine forever!” You don’t even need to see the photo to hear the absolute joy she was experiencing at this time – and we’re all alight with excitement, too, knowing the VS anniversary show is just around the corner. And now that we know Gigi Hadid will be a part of it, everything is even better. “One of the greatest moments of my life,” she said, thanking Ed Razek for her new role in the show.

Granted, the spot in the VS fashion show doesn’t give Hadid her Angel wings, but it sure is a step in the right direction. I think I speak for us all when I say Gigi Hadid is a no brainer to become a Victoria’s Secret Angel. Her passion, not to mention her killer body, is perfect for the brand, and there is no doubt the model would fit in with the other Angels, and stand out in all the right ways.

Now we’re going to dip into the rumor mill a little bit. While this news may not be confirmed, it would certainly add a delicious layer of fun for Gigi, and for her whole family. Yolanda Foster, Hadid’s mother, posted a childhood picture of Gigi with her sister Bella on Instagram, saying, “You are in this together since day one…” She tagged her two daughters, and ended the post with #MyBabyAngels, and this ambiguity has us reeling. Gigi and Bella Hadid may be sharing the huge anniversary stage on December 8, alongside the beloved VS angels, such as Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Behati Prinsloo, and Lily Aldridge, as well as the 10 new Angels that were added to the roster for the upcoming show.

Gigi Hadid is a true role model for girls and women everywhere. When she was initially rejected by Victoria’s Secret in last year’s casting, she was upset, but took that motivation to continue hitting the gym and really boosted her self-esteem. This makes her casting even more monumental, since she came from rejection, pushed herself even harder, and has now made it to where she’s always dreamed of being. I think we can all stand to have a bit of this mentality in our lives. And to Gigi Hadid – We’ll see you on the runway!

Victoria’s Secret Halloween 2015 Lookbook Featuring Elsa Hosk

Fashion

Besides the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, one the most awaited milestones of the year is Victoria’s Secret Halloween lookbook, which this year features one of thebrand’s newest Angels – Elsa Hosk. The 26-year-old Swedish model officially became one of Victoria’s Secret Angels this April, following the brand’s announcement of its newest Angels’ lineup. Elsa Hosk, who seems to particularly enjoy her brand new role as one of the most admired models in the fashion industry, has previously made a name for herself as one of the brand’s younger brand ambassadors, PINK, where she proudly showed her toned body and explosive charisma.

Victoria's Secret Halloween 2015 Lookbook Featuring Elsa Hosk

Although Halloween is only two weeks away, those who take this holiday seriously know two weeks are not that great amount of time, when you have to buy or create a costume out of nothing. However, if you currently lack ideas, Victoria’s Secret has something for you to help get into the Halloween spirit, and it features some sultry costumes that are great both for a risqué party and your bedroom.

As you may imagine, since we are about to present the Victoria’s Secret Halloween 2015 lookbook, its costumes show more bare skin than what the average Halloween costumes offer, and are basically meant to seduce, which someone may rightly consider not the most appropriate thing to do during a Halloween party. However, these costumes are all-year-round great ideas and are meant to be worn at any time in your bedroom. Not for nothing, there’s also a Santa Claus sexy costume, which features a lot of ruffles and lace appliqués.

The collection features seven different looks, which are all able to mix any woman’s sexy mood with her more childish inner self, who definitely loves to play and dare at the same times. This time around, Victoria’s Secret opted for five (un)conventional Halloween costumes, which include a Sexy Ice Angel costume with white embroidered bustier and lace gown that looks ultimately ethereal in comparison with the other looks; a Sexy Catwoman costume with a cat-ear headband included; the lovely Santa Claus costume and the Sexy Devil costume, the audacity of which equals the collection’s latest creation, namely the Sexy French Maid costume. Besides the costumes, this lookbook features some funny lace-waist panties and a tangled bodysuit, which has probably been made by Spiderman himself.

All the costumes work as curve-hugging lingerie pieces with sleek fabrics that have been adorned with delicate lace and sparkling embellishments, often interrupted by black bows, buttons and symmetrical cut-outs (which also help the silhouette look more slender). Each line is specifically made to enhance the woman’s body, wherever it is a curvy type of figure or a thinner one.

As for the prices of the collection, these costumes retail for price tags ranging from more than 100$ to less than 90$, and are totally in line with Victoria’s Secret usual prices. Although many of you may not be enthusiasts about Victoria’s Secret way of rocking Halloween, its undeniable sensual energy, channeled by Elsa Hosk, is almost addictive.

H&M Launches a Capsule Collection by Ximon Lee In October

Fashion

Ximon Lee has been awarded the H&M design award for his androgynous apparel and his prospect as a designer. Ximon was the first menswear designer to receive this award in 2015, and this marks his second consecutive H&M design award recognition. If you like his quirky designs, you’ll be happy to get a piece from the Ximon Lee for H&M 2015 capsule collection that’s to get launched later in October.

Ximon Lee for H&M 2015 Lookbook

Ximon offers a fresh, new perspective as a designer, since he so recently graduated from Parson’s in 2014. In his time with H&M, the designer has shown his eye for unique silhouettes. As a proclaimed menswear designer, Ximon Lee has already shown that he can create a new bridge between men’s and women’s fashion. Since androgyny is already huge on the 2016 runway, there is no surprise H&M would create a line to celebrate it. In doing so, Ximon was given the perfect outlet to showcase his creative talent, while also playing to his strengths in menswear.

There’s no doubt the choice of this designer as the recipient of H&M’s reward was thought out and well-established. He has proved that his voice is strong enough to be heard in the fashion industry, and we know we’ll soon be seeing his looks on the streets, on men and women alike.

October 22nd marks the release date for the young designer’s eight-piece unisex collection. While many “androgynous” clothing lines tend to lean to one gender or the other (either showing masculine pieces with feminine aspects, or vice versa), Ximon has achieved a level of balance many designers haven’t quite been able to reach yet.

That is how the H&M award was given so precisely. With the goal of choosing a lesser-known designer who displays clear direction in his or her own fashion aesthetic, the brand’s choice was clear. Ximon is a young, new designer who has a head full of ideas and the technique to bring them to life.

In the past, he has demonstrated his talent when working with exaggerated shapes. He uses a variety of techniques to achieve these unique shapes, such as manipulating the volume or layering oversized garments on top of one another, and all while making sure not to lose the form of the garments. Working with oversized clothing can prove challenging, because as the garments become larger and larger than the model’s frame, it is difficult to maintain a coherent shape.

Ximon Lee for H&M 2015 Lookbook

But Ximon Lee has clearly pulled it off in his past work, and H&M has recognized him for his accomplishments. It takes a cool-headed designer to create something so structured yet laidback for a person of any gender, so Ximon has earned his prestige.

There is a clear market in the fashion industry today for his abstract way of thinking. It’s uncommon to see a designer who identifies as a menswear designer to delve into androgyny on such a balanced level, because it is a trend most often seen in the middle of a feminine-dominated runway show.

Zadig & Voltaire Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – Paris Fashion Week

Fashion

Skulls, angel wings, wolves, butterflies and goodness knows what else Zadig & Voltaire’s creative director Cecilia Bonstrom would contrive to add to their rock ’n’ roll inspired cutting edge garments that could so masterfully synthesize casualness and luxury to bring about a brand new “casual luxury” style that was soon to become the best-loved pieces of many young ladies. The creative director of the French fashion house has recently presented the Zadig & Voltaire spring/summer 2016 collection that again feels pretty feminine and masculine at the same time, the exact pieces to slip into as you get out of bed and head to run your everyday errands.

Zadig & Voltaire Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

Several seasons in a row Cecilia Bonstrom has been zealously playing with vivid colors, trying to marry the brand’s signature black, white and brown colors with racy shades of yellow, blue and pink. Frankly speaking, we were quite contended to see our favorite brand being showered by a colorful rain. However, to all appearances the gothic colors proved to be uncompromising and the new Zadig & Voltaire spring 2016 collection features only one particular saturated color – a brink pink pantsuit with tiny star-like motifs on it. The rest of the separates are purely and in toto Zadig & Voltaire.

Over and over again we are in anticipation to feel those natural and cushy cashmere, leather, cotton and washed silk on our bodies. White cotton shirts with puffed sleeves and the same material baby doll dresses look ideal when paired with the brand’s signature fringed brown leather jackets or brown casual blazers. One of the white shirts paired with leopard leggings could have caught many leopard-python-fancier girls’ attention if not Cecilia’s fresh new offering to cast aside those slinky leggings and pay attention to those scandalous brown-white leather panty-style shorts with shoulder straps and crisscross laces that are being twins with the same texture ankle boots.

These new style boots with tiny square heels are really effective complements to the brand’s whole bunch of biker boots. Some military vibes are wondering through Zadig & Voltaire’s rock ’n’ roll style getting in shape through a camo print boxer jacket or an olive green one tied nonchalantly at the model’s waist over a brown handkerchief dress. Denim pieces are in full swing with tattered hems and unique embroideries on them.

The brown leather dungarees and the lovely ice-cream patches used on the denim pieces forcefully bring back childish memories featuring one of the most typical samples of urban life, and if there is the sun burning, your head is sure to be protected and styled with those fedora, derby hats and Gavroche caps that our favorite Zadig & Voltaire is proposing to us. Round-shaped clutches with multiple fringes cascading down, especially the vermillion one could become a part of this season’s must-haves despite being too micro to lodge anything essential. Last but not least, for spring Zadig & Voltaire has a fruitful message to you – keep peace, love and let your angel wings grow freely!

Paris Fashion Week Spring 2016 Best Street Style Looks

Fashion

The Paris Fashion Week spring 2016 has also been edging close to an end and we have to say that we are going to miss all these awesome shows happening once they are fully done! We adore seeing all the latest from our favourite designers, catching up on the latest celebrity gossip, checking out the talents behind the Houses and really getting to know the up and coming budding designers who have the ability to rock our worlds with their creative minds. From New York to Milan, London to Paris, we have watched the styles happening and we have fallen in love with the street styles often more than the actual trends displayed on the runways. When it comes to the Paris Fashion Week spring 2016 street style, we knew that we would be expecting something crazier, in line with the totally French look and that is exactly what we got.

Paris Fashion Week Spring 2016 Street Style Looks

The gods of fashion were good to us and the first three days have been stellar in terms of the looks, the bohemian and otherwise that take over the sidewalks and everything about it. It may be October already but Paris is a sunny city, albeit the cool winds have set in. Most all have opted to add layers to their ensembles as they attend the shows, though some still think we are in the throes of summer it seems.

It is the cashmere coat that grabs our attention for it is perfect for the autumn crisp air. They come in wraparound styles, belted at the waist, in cape coat designs with the billowing sleeves and the gorgeous double buttoned style, matched up with laced up knee high boots. They come in ensembles of high waist side button trousers and ruffled white shirts, looks reminiscent of old Europe, though there are those who switch up the cashmere with a nice drench that falls to below the knees.

Some of the looks we see on the streets include corded knit sweaters, both short and in the guise of dresses. We see pleated skirts that are either of tougher material or gauzy and fluttering in the wind, falling higher against the knees or lower to wrap around the calves. We see gorgeous boyish looks with ties to amplify the professional attire, while prints in animal and floral make their way into skirts and tops in order to add a burst of color to often otherwise dark outfits. We are particularly fond of the snakeskin and the leopard, while the more subtle flowery appeal on pants and skirts is much more fitting to our tastes.

Long sleeved bodysuits come into play as well, while we are generally in love with the high waists on everything from denim to skinny pants. It is the ‘70s that come out to play with the suede and the cowgirl shirts, while we see touches of traditional Japanese looks peeking through here and there. Large rounded sunglasses and pretty little handled handbags appear on the streets with gusto, while wacky looking clutches are a common enough sight. Add fringe to everything from handbags to the clothing and you have the Paris Street looks captured to the tee.

The ‘70s reigned stronger here on the Paris streets than anywhere else to date. This included leather miniskirts and leather bomber jackets. It included suede pants and suede sweaters. There were lace up boots and nude colored stiletto sandals. We saw a whole lot of fringe as well on the clutches and the jackets, while furry additions to the bags themselves caught our attention. We have rounded sunglasses as well as cat eyes, but it was the high waist denim that did us in. Between the cashmere coats and corded knit sweaters, we were in for a treat. Add a few ponchos here and there, suede skirts and culottes appearing with ankle boots and we have ourselves one of the better more fashionable street style collections yet!
