They are constantly traveling with her movie star husband, George Clooney. The couple has homes in New York, London and Los Angeles.

Amal's style is usually on a classy side, but on Monday the Lebanese-British lawyer appeared in a chic, modern ensemble by Stella McCartney and we loved it.

"The dress must follow the body of a woman, not the body following the shape of the dress" Hubert de Givenchy once said. #Givenchy

His are the only clothes in which I am myself. He is far more than a couturier, he is a creator of personality
— Hubert de Givenchy's muse Audrey Hepburn

Hubert'sfirst impression on Audrey Hepburn.
"There are hundreds of memories. In 1953, they needed dresses for “Sabrina.” Audrey asked me to see her and she arrived in the studio. It’s not that I was disappointed to not meet Katherine Hepburn. She was ravishing. But she was dressed in a way that surprised me: small pants, ballerina flats. I asked myself ‘Who is this young lady?’ We liked each other immediately. I was in the middle of making the collection, so I couldn’t make dresses for “Sabrina” rapidly enough. I didn’t have the time. We spoke and I said “Unfortunately, I cannot do dresses for you. It’s not possible.” She said, “Can I see the dresses?” I said “Sure.” We showed them to her. There were fifteen or so dresses for her to try on very quickly. She saw the first and said, “This is exactly what I need.” We made the dresses. The film came out. It won an Oscar for the dresses but I didn’t get any credit. She was furious. She demanded “Each time I’m in a film, Givenchy dresses me.”

Givenchy was clearly platonically in love with the "fresh, unique, loyal, wonderful" Hepburn, but it's not hard to see what a charming friend he would have made in return. His manners are quietly impeccable. His way of making fashion and life seem like a dreamily beautiful affair is outstanding.

Vintage - Always in Style #Vintage

Vintage - a style that does not leave anyone indifferent. For some it is the standard of beauty and elegance. Others do not recognize wearing things that others already wore. But clearly vintage style is very interesting and always in style.
Fashion is windy. Today what may be ultra-popular no one will wear the following year, but vintage clothes, not all, but the ones that has stood the test of time, return into our wardrobe.

You can find vintage clothing in special shops, flea markets, online stores,  even your grandmother's attic. The period from the twenties to the eighties - is the period of vintage. Anything that was sewn or made before is retro. Although designers are still arguing over this concept. Take for example Max Mara. Coats of this brand were considered the best since the 50s. In Russia, they appeared in the stores at the end of the 1980's. 25 years is considered a vintage style. And if you your mother or grandmother was the owner of the suit coat or jacket, then make a visit to inspect their closet. You will be surprised what you may suddenly find hanging there.

Keep in mind you should not combine things from different periods, it would look ridiculous. For example, patent leather boots, stockings on the platform will not fit in with a jacket that you see above. It will make a bad combination.

You also should not put the entire wardrobe of vintage items. It will look better if one or two items are of modern nature. It will then create a perfect look. For example  a costume from the late 50's  and pointed toe shoes from the same era will look appropriate.

It is necessary to be careful when shopping for vintage items. It's best to buy the right size since alteration of the vintage item is not always easy. Pay attention to cleanliness of the item. Often stains created with age of the item are virtually impossible to remove without damaging it.  Replacing a button is easy since buttons can be bought in stores.

For those who do not know where to start when creating an image in vintage style, pay attention to the shoes or jewelry. Jewellery of this period is not always made of precious metal, a lot of jewelry made from plastic. Accessories can be used in business attire as well as for the evening.

Vintage  handbags are  trendy.  Fashion accessories change almost every decade. Today we find bags as seen years ago.  Combining these handbags you should follow the same rule you follow with the modern bag.

Vintage items can be put together from three items adding an original accessories from present period. Please note  that all things must be of one era.

For those who like vintage style  but does not want to carry things from someone else's shoulder, there are a number of shops that sew clothes for old clothing patterns. Just make sure you pick a fabric as close as possible to the original.


Vintage things carry a soul. While selecting vintage item pay attention as the item may choose you.

Dior models in Former USSR - Moscow 1959 #Fashion #Vintage

One weekend in June 1959 a real furor was made. Muscovites who wandered into GUM, the USSR’s premier department store, were treated to an extraordinary scene: French models, dressed in vibrantly colored Dior suits. The models paraded through Moscow for five nights while there for a Christian Dior fashion show. Let's dive back into the history and to that special day.

Flashback: Marc Jacobs #MarcJacobs

Because you're awesome! Fans send messages to designer Marc Jacobs on his Instagram post of the link to his work back in 1987. Check out that hair and that voice! Oh Marc!

I mean the ideal girl would just sort of like roll out of bed after some nap, put on a slip and go out to some club dancing. And she’ll be dressed but she’ll still be kind of undressed
— Marc Jacobs

Are these shoes made for walking? #AlexanderMcQueen #LadyGaga

Lady Gaga certainly thinks so.  Lady Gaga's main squeeze Taylor Kinney had purchased three pairs of Alexander McQueen Armadillo boots at Christie's New York for the combined $295,000 .

What We Loved About Miami Swim Week #MiamiSwimWeek

Let just say we’re happy with what we saw this past week, as presentations of the latest resort collections, left us with a hankering to hit the closest beach. A change of pace from the traditional runway made the event all the more exclusive as presentations and trunk shows were spread all across different venues in beautiful Miami.
With longtime organizer IMG announcing that it would longer be a part of this year’s Miami Swim Week, PR agencies and long-time supporters banded together to make sure that the show went on without a hitch.
A few of our personal favorites came from the house of Tori Praver, whose collection provided us with a plethora of amazing cuts, and a romantic color palette. The proportions of the swimsuits were strong, yet feminine, proving that femininity doesn’t always have to be dainty.  Acacia blew it out of the water with swimwear that looked comfortable, and fresh, with subtle nautical hints.

Julian Chang made us swoon with his use of flowy fabrics, body hugging swimsuits, and his stunningly romantic lace jumpsuit.

Overall, the shows were a raging success! We can’t wait to see what is in store for Miami Swim Week next year now that IMG will be back organizing the event.
