If there’s one trend that seems to be going strong long after its recent revitalization, it’s the use of leather. Not only is it appropriate for all seasons these days, it has also taken a colorful turn. This week, four stylish ladies took on leather in color and made our mouths water for more. First up was Rihanna in her gorgeous blue leather skirt which she paired with an equally colorful, printed blouse. Her A-line mini not only turned heads, it made sure all eyes stayed on the always sexy songstress.
Keeping with the sexy theme but adding a little edge to the mix was Heidi Klum in her motorcycle jacket inspired dress. The exquisite navy blue color is a must have and while she kept covered with long sleeves and a knee length cut, the zipper on top let her play with just showing a hint of skin.
Another notable look was Jessica Alba’s gorgeous yellow motorcycle jacket. The stylish star paired her Burberry jacket with a bold Dolce and Gabbana dress and completed her look with a chic purple tote.
If Heidi took rich color up a notch, George Clooney’s gal pal, Stacey Keibler took her leather sheath to another level. Sporting a rich plum hue and a semi-futuristic cut (check out the stitched panels and side flare), the sometimes wrestler looked elegant yet incredibly chic.
Who do you think wore the colored leather look best? Share your thoughts below.
The Grammy Awards can always be counted on to bring the weird, the wacky and definitely the inappropriate on the red carpet. A look back at Jennifer Lopez’s infamous Versace number and Lady Gaga’s meat dress is all we need as a mental jog. This year, CBS sent out a letter ahead of music’s biggest night appealing to the stars to be on their best behavior when it comes to fashion. In a letter leaked to several media outlets, CBS’ Standards and Practices department urged the presenters and performers on Sunday night to ”Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered”. The letter also stated, ”Thong type costumes are problematic. Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack…Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic. Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples. Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible ‘puffy’ bare skin exposure.”
On that note, let’s see if any of the night’s biggest names adhered to the rules. Here are all the hits and misses of the night.
Take a trip down memory lane and relive last year’s best and worst red carpet moments.
We recently covered the hottest color of the summer and today, we’re featuring something for the risk-takers. There’s nothing new about the art of color blocking. Who could forget Grace Coddington’s eye catching
work (experience is probably a much better description) in the pages of Vogue. What’s exciting about this art of dressing is that it gets more bold and more vibrant from year to year and never seems to lose it’s “freshness”. This style is most certainly not for the meek, it takes a certain level of confidence and audacity to walk in a color blocked piece. This past season, thanks to fashion houses like Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Designers like Sonia Rykiel, we’ve been re-introduced to a really bold alternative. So the morale is, for those who dare, remember people will stare, some may even sneer but you’ll probably be having too much fun to care! Here’s to taking a risk in color…
