Victoria Secret’s 2015 Fashion Show!

  
Last night, CBS hosted the Victoria Secret’s 2015 Fashion Show where angels such as Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge and Lais Ribeiro graced the runway in some fiery, colourful and sexy lingerie.

I’m still hopeful that one day, average size women will have the opportunity to strut this prestigious runway. No shade to any of these beautiful VS models but I’m sure Toccara Jones and Kristen Madison could also make VS look amazing. #justsaying

This annual event held in New York included performances by Ellie Goulding, Selena Gomez and The Weeknd. 

Here are some of my fave looks…

Red Carpet: 2015 Cannes Film Festival!

 The Cannes Film Festival is an annual festival held at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in Cannes, France, which previews new films of all genres, including international documentaries. Since 1946, this film festival has grown to be considered one of the most prestigious and most publicized in the world. 

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.

Jourdan Dunn looked stunning in a gorgeous Vera Wang gown and Chopard jewels.  

Kendall Jenner showed some skin in this Calvin Klein Collection gown and Chopard jewels. 

Lara Stone sizzled in a high slit gold dress.  

Mary J. Blige looked dazzling in a beaded dress. 

Sienna Miller shines bright in a Ralph Lauren Collection gown. 

Irina Shayk stunned in an emerald sweetheart shaped gown and Harry Winston jewels. 

Chanel Iman looked gorgeous in a Zuhair Murad Couture masterpiece, an Edie Parker clutch and Ileana Makri jewels. 

Cate Blanchett rocked all black in Armani Privé.  

Emily Blunt glittered in a Stella McCartney gown.

Adriana Lima looked amazing in a Ulyana Sergeenko gown and Chopard jewels.  

Andie MacDowell looked radiant in Elie Saab. 

Eva Longoria looked fierce in a Gabriela Cadena gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. 

Lily Donaldson rocked a black beaded gown.  

Salma Hayek popped (literally) in Gucci.  

Camila Alves looked gorge in a Gabriela Cadena gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry (although this gown could have done without this stunning piece of jewelry).

Diane Kruger dazzled in Prada.

Charlize Theron looked radiant in a yellow Christian Dior Couture and Chopard jewels. 

Bar Refaeli rocked a simple yet elegant Roland Mouret gown.  

Who rocked your fave look?

Hello November!

IMG_3835.JPG
November’s here already! Although this means that it’s almost hibernation time for me (since I am allergic to cold weather), there are still some great things happening this month that will force get me out of the house…

In film:
1- Beyond The Lights (premieres November 14th). This film is about a music superstar, Noni (played by Gugu Mbatha-Raw), who struggles with the pressures of fame and success to the point where she contemplates suicide…I’m hoping this movie can shed some light on this issue and help those with suicidal thoughts to speak up and reach out.

2- Mocking jay – Part 1 (premieres November 21st). If you’re a Hunger Games fan like me then you have been anxiously awaiting the last (well part 1 of 2) of this trilogy. Can’t wait! “May the odds be ever in your favour.”

In fashion:
I’m loving the November covers this year…
1- Zoe Saldana, soon to be mom of twins, graces the cover of Elle (US) and looks amazing while doing so.
2- I am loving Anne Hathaway‘s lip colour choice on the cover of Elle (UK). That dark lip is perfect for Fall.
3- Gugu Mbatha-Raw covers Elle magazine’s Women In Hollywood issue and she is simply flawless with her bold lip and hair slicked back. Love the ring and ear jewelry too!
4- Adriana Lima covers VOGUE PARIS this month in this gorgeous bejewelled headpiece. I’m loving the smokey-all-over-face makeup too. It really makes her eyes pop!
5- You know I love me some Queen Latifah. She’s covering this month’s Essence issue and looks fearless in this gorgeous dress.

In entertainment:
1- Catch Usher on his UR Experience tour featuring August Alsina. This is sure to be an entertaining ‘experience’ filled with hot choreography and great vocals. I would love to see another one of his shows, he does not disappoint.

2- Stevie Wonder is also headlining his Songs in the Key of Life Performance Tour across North America this month. I’m sure this will be an amazing show as well. He is a legend!

Also, don’t forget to turn your clocks back this Sunday. It’s almost time for us to Fall Back! (I love having the opportunity to sleep an extra hour!)

Last but not least, let us remember and honour our heroes on 11.11.14 “Remembrance Day”. Lest we forget!

Happy November!
