Mink Pink Swimwear

I have to say i was really disappointed in Mink Pink‘s Bike Gang &   LA LA Land (Venice beach Shoot) Campaigns. I found them unoriginal, over the top and completely contrived. I didn’t get that feeling of caution-to-the-wind-youth that i knew the photographer was trying to express, IMO it just didn’t make it.

Fortunately for me their newly released swimwear look-book has completely redeemed the label for me. The shoot isn’t over the top, the photography is great and the pieces are nothing less than stunning. Check it out HERE.

Met Gala 2013 – Best & Worst Dressed

IMO,  no one hit  ‘Style’ on its proverbial head this year.  In fact i spend most of the time horrified. i believe they all missed the memo stating that standing out isn’t necessarily the same as standing out, if you know what i mean.

Anyway, here are my picks for best dressed…



Proof that spikes are still trending..


Cam shows us how to be different with out going over the top.


Miranda doing cut-outs like a boss, although ever so slightly underweight.


Mrs Timberlake joins the punk craze without going overboard. Love it.


I think this is the best i have ever seen Kristen look, she may have actually put some effort in to this one.


This one will get mixed reviews i’m sure, but i like it.  Her hair and make up work perfectly to let the dress do all the talking.


Giselle rocks out in this metal mini


Unsure how i feel about this one, i love the hair and the edgy look Anne is channeling, it’s just the feathered sleeves that are throwing me…


And my picks for worst dressed…


I LOVE SJP as much as the next gal but i believe this headpiece to be hideous.


Pink overload..


I’m sure you have all seen this pic by now. Talk about your matchy matchy. A bit of a neckline may have helped break this up a little.


Where to begin? Was this a costume party and i wasn’t aware?


Mads has stepped into a time warp and thinks it the 80’s again.


Kelly Osborne is said to be an authority on fashion these days… um…


Well, that’s everyone  i believed to be noteworthy this year. Each for their own reasons.

 In a way celebs are like  catwalk models, their outfits are overly elaborate to expose the style of the season, but are not wearable for us normal humans.  Safe to say, punk is in, but lets tone it down a little, yeah?
