Celine Has Unveiled the First Part of its Fall/Winter 2019-2020 Campaign

How about a little sneak peek of Hedi Slimane’s marvelously minimalistic world? Indeed, for the French Maison’s Fall/Winter 2019-2020 Campaign, Slimane reimagined femininity through Celine’s laid-back French Bourgeoisie lens. And so, he captured the collection’s fabulously relaxed separates in a series of shots that could only be described as a mirror to his codes and values.

And it’s with practicality and elegance that he styled the campaign, elevating the Celine woman into an everyday-kind-of-gal. Photographed by Hedi Slimane himself, the campaign features models against a sleek backdrop, looking as meticulously blazé as ever. Jeans, shearling boots, high-collared shirts, blazers and delicate accessories were all part of the mix and played in favor of Slimane’s exceptional vision.

Rockin’ A Bodysuit

The name itself is as sultry as a piece of clothing can get. A bodysuit is perhaps one of the most controversial numbers out there – some people might say it traces their body ever-so elegantly, why others might just claim they suffocate by the mere sound of it.

If you’ve been asking yourself if bodysuits are still a thing, then you probably already know the answer: yes, of course they are. We won’t want to drop names, but just look at Saint Laurent’s Spring 19 collection and you’ll understand what we’re saying. The tentative comeback that kick-started a few years back, was as successful as a comeback could get. The trend proliferated so bad that even the people in the “no bodysuits here” category were affected by the fashionable epidemic. And can you blame them really? Bodysuits look good on literally anyone, they put into sight a woman’s curves ever-so elegantly and feature a lot of styles. With Balmain, Alexandre Vauthier, Saint Laurent and Attico at the top of this game, one could only expect nothing less than pure fabulousness. See our favorite picks right here!

Over the TOP

You know that one little detail that can make or break an outfit? Well more often than not, said “thing” is your top. Of course, shoes, bags and bottoms are equally important, but there’s something about a good statement top that can really bring out the best in you, in terms of beauty and confidence.

That said, this season in particular has welcomed a ton of tops that can make any person go “Wow”. So what’s the “Wow” factor, might you ask? It can be anything really, from statement sleeves to asymmetrical proportions or even pop colors. If it’s statement-worthy, it’s over the top. While some people weren’t really convinced of the effect a top can have on a whole outfit, the streets were the perfect show and tell of its success. Indeed, during the latest fashion weeks, the streets were crawling with fabulous tops and a certain je ne sais quoi that could make any fashion lover go nuts. The trick here is to always live the extravagance with your head held high.

Now we ask you: how will you show your inimitable fashion sense? No need to break out in hives ladies, just scroll through our own pick of glamorous tops!

A Dress for Every Body Type

Cover Photo Courtesy of Moda Operandi

If you’re a huge fan of dresses, this article is just for you. Sometimes, we women tend to overlook some of the basics when it comes to fashion, such as the type of clothes that suit us and more importantly, our body type. And while there are no rules engraved in stone, there’s one thing we know for sure: body types do matter and can elevate our look in no time if we give them the right attention.

How many times have you seen a dress on a rack and thought to yourself “oh that looks cute”, only to have it look utterly horrible on you? I, for one, have had this problem one too many times, and have always wished I could find a solution for it. Turns out it’s not that hard to figure out once you lay down all your options. So first things first, look at yourself in the mirror and figure out what body type you have. Scroll belong to find out more:

Apple Body Shape
If you have an apple-shaped body, odds are you probably have a thicker waist and a larger upper body part. And so your best option here is to draw less attention to your upper body and highlight your legs with a swing mini-dress.

Pear Body Shape
If your derriere and thighs are substantially larger than your upper body, then you have a pear-shaped body type just like Kim K. So if you want to bring out your best features and highlight your tiny waist, you should probably go for a fit-and-flare dress to create proportion between your upper and lower part.

Hourglass Body Shape
If you have a balanced body shape with proportionate upper and lower body parts with a tiny and very well-defined waistline, then you’re one of the lucky ones. Wear whatever it is you want to wear, but we suggest you highlight your body with a bodycon dress.

Rectangle Body Shape
If you don’t have a well-defined waistline and have more of an athletic figure, then what you need here is a dress that creates the illusion of curves, such as a cinched or a ruched dress. Whatever you do though, don’t wear a straight-cut and shapeless dress.

Shorts – Anywhere, Everywhere

When it’s hot and you can barely breathe from the heat, all you need to wear is your swimsuit and your flip-flops. But since social norms don’t condone such behavior – unfortunately – we found ourselves looking for clothes that minimize the impact of the writhing sun. One of said clothes is a good old pair of shorts that you can match with pretty much anything, a fancy blouse, a standard logo tee, sneakers, sandals, kitten heels, etc…

But the kind of shorts we’re talking about here is not your average denim shorts. No. It’s much more than that. We’re talking about the tailored shorts that can make you look classy and elegant even if you’re not wearing classic trousers. The kind of shorts that can refresh your wardrobe with ease and glamor. Thankfully, this season has brought upon high-waisted tailored shorts that can be easily matched with cropped top and matching sets.

From floral shorts to more classic patterns, we’ve rounded up the tailored styles you will definitely be needing right now.

It’s a Wonderful Birthday – Celebrating Charlize Theron

She’s tall, she’s blonde, she’s got the eyes of a tiger – yes, we said it – and she’s Hollywood’s little sweetheart. But beyond these obvious facts, there’s something about Charlize Theron that makes everyone go gaga about her. Could it be her immense success? Or is it her charming allure? Either way, the South-African actress is quite the iconic figure in the entertainment industry and has consequently collected quite a few awards from an Academy Award to a Golden Globe Award – amongst others.

And if there’s anything we love more than her exceptional role in the movie Snow White and the Huntsman, it’s her inimitable sense of style. Yes, she’s just not an incredible actress, but she also flaunts a fabulous flair for style – something we’ve come to notice on her countless red carpet appearances and of course, off the red carpet. Of course, her model-like features helped a lot, but we can’t say we’re not head over heels for her fashionable appearances at movie premieres, elitist events and international festivals.

So, care to celebrate this wonderful actress’ birthday with us? Join us as we take you on a lovely journey through her stylish looks.
