In Her Closet: Chrissy Teigen!

 Anyone close to me knows that I have a very sane thing for closets…Yes, my wardrobe closet is categorically organized meaning there’s a section for dresses, skirts, denim, tops, sweaters, hoodies, sweatpants, trousers, cardigans and t-shirts. Yes, everything is colour coordinated. Yes, all of my hangers are facing the same direction and yes, I would know if someone went in there. Ok, so I have a serious thing for closets hence why I was instantly drawn when The Coveteur gave a glimpse of Chrissy Teigen’s closet at her home in the Hollywood Hills…that is what I call la-la land. See for yourself. Here are some of my fave snaps.

              

Check out the remainder of the pics here.

So what do you think of Chrissy’s closet? You already know how I feel about it…love love love it!

This year, the festival began on May 13th and it is soon coming to an end on May 24th. To wrap up the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival, I thought I’d share some of my fave looks from the multitude of celebrities that came out to the invitation-only festival.

Olivia Munn In Mary Katrantzou!

  

Olivia Munn was spotted in West Hollywood, California earlier this week in a playful printed Mary Katrantzou romper. I’m not one to rock rompers but this colourful pattern reads easy elegance and fun. She expertly paired her playsuit with a scarlet suede clutch and nude sandals to ensure the focus is kept up top. Her makeup was kept minimal with a pop of berry red lips and her hair slicked back into a loose ponytail to complement her ensemble. She accessorized with a few bronze bangles to complete her look. I’m loving this flirty floral one-piece. Get this look here or for more budget-friendly options here or here.

Elizabeth Olsen in Galvan & Sarah Jessica Parker in Theory!

Elizabeth Olsen attended the Avengers: Age of Ultron premiere earlier this week in a sophisticated two-toned Galvan t-shirt dress featuring a chic, short-sleeved white silk gazar top and navy crepe skirt. I’m loving the details of this ribbed skirt with the thigh-high slit and flowing train. She kept her accessories to a minimum with a gold Sidney Garber statement necklace that complemented her ensemble very well and wore black ankle-strap open-toe heels. Love the crimson lipstick colour too!

Sarah Jessica Parker made her appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman earlier this week in a mint-hued moss blazer layered over an olive green Theory ‘Vintan’ jumpsuit from the Spring 2015 collection. She accessorized with several necklaces of alternating lengths, bracelets and a silver watch. She heeled it off in her eponymous SJP embellished peep-toe heels. Im also loving her metallic polish!

JLo in Elie Saab & Jessica Alba in Max Mara!

Jennifer Lopez sparkled in one of her stunner looks on American Idol last week wearing a midnight blue Elie Saab romper featuring a deep plunge, slivers of sheer fabric, sequins throughout and a thin belt cinching her waist. She accessorized her look with Endless Jewelry and heeled it off with nude suede Casadei pumps. I’m absolutely loving this look!

Jessica Alba attended the Independent School Alliance for Minority Affairs Impact Awards Dinner in an origami-draped cream & black short-sleeved Max Mara jumpsuit. She complemented her look with Melissa Kaye earrings, a Rachel Katz cuff, a gorgeous studded clutch and heeled it off in black pumps. I’m loving her hair length, colour and overall look.

Shailene Woodley in Ralph Lauren Collection & Suki Waterhouse in Reem Acra! 

Insurgent stars, Shailene Woodley and Suki Waterhouse, have been making their promo rounds to premiere the second instalment of the Divergent series and have done so with style and glamour.


Suki Waterhouse graced the red carpet at the New York premiere in a blush deep plunging Reem Acra creation featuring cut-outs, gorgeous embroidery and exquisite beadwork. I’m loving blush these days!



Shailene Woodley radiated elegance in an open back Ralph Lauren Collection gown at the London premiere. I’m loving the sleeve and back details of this ivory silk cady gown which features over 100 silk cream organza strips on silk tulle. Nice finishing touch with Casadei shoes.

Camilla Belle in Preen!



Camilla Belle attended the Moët & Chandon event honouring Brand Ambassador Roger Federer‘s history making 1000th career match win at the Four Seasons Hotel last Saturday (March 7) in Beverly Hills, California. She showcased such flair in a beautiful printed Preen Pre-Fall 2015 wrap dress. The British designer duo have caught my attention with this wonderful piece that plays with layers, prints and colours. Belle accessorized with a white box Lee Savage ‘East Stack’ clutch and heeled it off with black strappy Brian Atwood sandals. Her makeup was kept minimal for a soft yet natural look and she completed her overall vibrant look with the perfect black mani/pedi.

Victoria Beckham kept it simple in all-black while attending the memorial service for the fashion design expert, Professor Louise Wilson. The late fashion design professor was highly respected & admired by many and has tutored top designers such as Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen. The service was held last Friday at St Paul’s Cathedral in London. 

Mrs. Posh wore her own design featuring a chain-embellished coat, slim-fitting trousers and classic pumps. She accessorized with a matching chain-link clutch (which complemented her ensemble perfectly) and a pair of black shades. She kept her look stylish as always though appropriate for the occasion.
