I Like Your Style…

Nina Dobrev in Alex Perry

Since 2010, Nina has been on my radar as the one to watch. And now, not only is she on a hit CW television series – Vampire Diaries – she is also making the lists for being a best dressed celebrity. Newly single and with the world ahead of her and her blossoming career, I am excited to see how far she’ll push the boundaries with her red carpet looks.

KCD Introduces Digital Fashion Shows

image courtesy of KCD

Leading public relations and production agency, KCD, announced this morning that they will be revealing a new fashion platform during New York’s Fashion Week this February. Buyers and press will be able to exclusively view fashion shows only online. In the past, we have seen shows that were available for livestream, but KCD will take this one step further by releasing shows that are previously taped and scheduled to air at later times. The best part is that they can be viewed long after Fashion Week even ends!

Those that are invited by KCD to view the fashion shows will be given a username and password, but if we’re lucky, maybe they’ll choose to share them with us by embedding videos to their blog.

The first show to air will be on February 15 staring with Prabal Gurung’s ICB Collection for Onward Kashiyama.

What I would do to be able to be a part of this exclusive list…So jealous!

The Battle For Fashion Week

[Source-Getty Images]

Fashion Week (or as like to call it – Fashion Month) is about to become much more pretentious than ever before. Fashion Month works because none of them overlap. First comes New York, then comes London. After that, we have Milan and Paris is last. Turns out, Milan is not happy with that arrangement.

Milan has reportedly decided to place their Fashion Week in dates that would conflict with both New York and London’s fashion weeks, which is going to send every fashion magazine into a frenzy. Milan is essentially giving them an ultimatum and trying to prove who is most powerful out of the fashion capitals.

Who will rise to the top? Only time will tell.

Here is the official trailer for Martha Marcy May Marlene starring Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s younger sister Elizabeth Olsen. This film has been receiving at ton of buzz in the news lately for Olsen’s performance. I think I got some chills just from watching the trailer. In the film, Olsen plays Martha, a schizophrenic girl who has trouble trying to live a normal life after escaping from a cult. [Source]

Fashion Week Essentials

I might just be the only one in my group of friends that looks forward to Fashion Week however many times a year it actually occurs. To those that actually attend, Fashion Week is serious business. Designers spend months sometimes up to a year+ creating collections for the right seasons. They envision the presentation, send out the invitations, and celebrate with the best parties. It’s exciting, but it’s no joke. Those that are invited don’t just attend one show a day, they attend multiple shows a day sometimes all across New York City.

So how do the attendees prepare for this marathon? They pack the essentials. In a post by Vogue Daily, The Coveteur has captured all of the necessities that the Fashion Week A-listers can’t leave home without.
