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?

A Culture Chic Affair!

I was happy to attend the RSVP Presents A Culture Chic Affair this past weekend and I had such a fabulous time meeting some amazingly talented people from artists to fashion designers to makeup artists to entrepreneurs. It was such an enriching experience filled with Afro-Caribbean culture, live entertainment, creative artisans and designers. In fact, there were so many great moments (that I was able to capture on camera), it’s only right that I share them with you. Experience a Culture Chic Affair through my eyes and camera lens. Enjoy!

Jana & Emilia Fashion Design Tufafi Fashion  Sidow Designs AMM Line Productions  Custom made bead designs from Beads Eleganza. Curly Hair Design products for the “curls of the world”. Veronica looked lovely with her ready to wear, ready to shine Kuwala design. Love it! Tanyta Boldon’s apron design from Aquilla Design Company worn by a fashionista. Antonia Bejide, makeup artist, looked flawless with her piercing eyes and beautiful glow (follow her YouTube channel @Toni3luv). Sarah A. Onyango (Rogers Television host, CHUO 89.1FM Radio host & producer) hosted the event with such grace. Nancita Kapi sang her heart out and strutted the catwalk for AMM Line Productions. The lovely Divine (I love her name!), Event Specialist, RSVP Events Canada, along with her team really worked their magic to ensure an elegant and flawlessly executed event. Tribal Threat entertained the crowd with great music. Cheryl Sandiford, Certified reflexologist, Sabrah’s Reflexology, restored my balance & harmony through my soles and I must say her hands are pure bliss. Wonderful artwork display.

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.

Kerry Washington in Boss by Jason Wu!

2015/01/img_4403.jpg
Kerry Washington kept it sexy in patterns at the inaugural Daily Front Row Fashion Awards held at Sunset Tower last Thursday in West Hollywood, California. She mixed prints like a pro in a Boss by Jason Wu chevron-print skirt and a graphic black & white long-sleeve top. Love how she boldly paired the two. She accessorized with Dana Rebecca Designs earrings, rings by EF Collection and Melissa Kaye and a black Christian Louboutin clutch. She heeled it off perfectly with some red bottoms. Love her look from head to toe.

What are your thoughts? Who else is excited for the Scandal premiere tomorrow night?

Happy Wednesday!

Accessories: Statement Necklaces!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/d2f/36340188/files/2014/12/img_9914.jpg
With New Year’s Eve being just a few days away, I’m sure many of you are still trying to figure out what to wear for the end of 2014 and the beginning of 2015. Whether you’re planning to wear a little not-so-little black dress or a structured sweater with denim or even a blouse with a skirt, what better way to accessories your outfit than with a statement necklace.
They are the perfect accessory to make ANY ensemble stand out. This statement jewelry is meant to be the focus of the overall look and the ultimate conversation starter. You can certainly keep the rest of the outfit simple with such an eye-grabber piece. Chic yet effortless! All you need is this one piece (or a couple pieces if you decide to stack a few necklaces to get the look). Here are some of my face looks featuring statement necklaces.

Accessories: “Mise en Dior” Earrings!

IMG_4136.JPG
Accessories that I never rarely leave home without are my earrings and watch (otherwise I feel ‘somewhat’ naked…you know that feeling, right?). My go-to earrings are either studs or pearls so when I first laid eyes on these “Mise en Dior” earrings, I instantly fell in love. How gorgeous are these double ended pearl earrings?! It’s the perfect statement piece that graciously frames any face. I’m loving the bold asymmetric effect. The small pearl rests on the ear while the large pearl peers out behind the lobe. You can even opt to wear it alone, which gives you 2 different sizes to choose from, or as a pair. Who doesn’t love versatility?

Bonus: You are not limited to these cream resin beads. There are many different sets and colours to choose from.

Solange in Christian Siriano!

IMG_4055.JPG
Solange Knowles made her first appearance since her glam New Orleans wedding and lit up Art Basel in Miami Beach on Wednesday (December 3) in her favourite colour (mine too!)yellow! She arrived in style in this bold two-piece ensemble which consisted of an evening bustier with a ruffled cape and cropped Christian Siriano trousers. She accessorized her look with Jennifer Fisher jewelry and golden ankle-strap sandals. The newlywed kept her makeup minimal and her natural curls free flowing. What a great way to follow up post NOLA.

I’m so glad that the one statement cape wasn’t enough! Solange has a way of making the superhero accessory trend look so elegant. She was absolutely gorgeous in her plunging ivory stunner caped wedding dress by Kenzo. Simply elegant!

Beyoncé in Rails Clothing!

Lately I’ve been all over plaid anything so when I saw Beyoncé rocking this plaid Rails Hunter button-down shirt, it immediately grabbed my attention (especially in that colour combo…LOVE!). Bee paired it with a stone gray leather pencil skirt but could have easily paired it with “faux” leather pants or dark denim and looked just as great. She accessorized with a Dior purse, a gold Mr. Kate feather ring and heeled it off with buckled black Giuseppe Zanotti ankle boots.

What are your thoughts on this look? Yay or nay!?

Happy Monday!

Olivia Burton Watches!

Olivia Burton

Lesa Bennett and Jemma Fennings, the duo behind the Olivia Burton London brand, created their own style of watches inspired by vintage styles and catwalk trends. The collection is distinctive as they are all made with obsessive attention to detail. The watches come in many wearable styles such as wonderland, woodland, colour crush, animal motifs, modern vintage and my favourite, big dial (the ‘fab’ watch). They are fun, affordable (ranging from $105 to $200) and full of British style.

I’m definitely adding the big dial watch to my wishlist. Do you have a favourite OB watch style?

Happy Monday!

Jessica Alba in Max Mara & Alice + Olivia!

Earlier this week, Jessica Alba graced the streets of New York City wearing a simple white and blue collared Alice + Olivia blouse tucked into some gorgeous ivory high waisted wide-leg Max Mara pants. She accessorized her look with a chic black & white print “Farida” Christian Louboutin tote (valued at $2,300…yikes!), neutral wedges and Jennifer Fisher jewelry.

I thought she looked effortlessly sophisticated (as always…if you haven’t noticed by now, I love her style!). I’m particularly loving the high waistline. What do you think of her look?

Happy Friday!

I’m loving: Sincerely Jules’ tees!

I previously blogged about Julie Sariñana’s screen print “Célfie” tee here. Well, the founder of Sincerely Jules designed many other fun & quirky tees emblazoned with inspiring mottos and images that I’m sure you’ll love.

20140525-231252-83572269.jpg

20140525-231251-83571916.jpg
Most of these tees are unisex and feature a more open neckline and a looser fitting body for extra comfort.

I also love these cute totes (conscious alternative to plastic bags) and these perfectly dainty hand made rings.
