Padma Lakshmi: More Than Gorgeous








Padma Lakshmi is just a day away from turning forty. Just look at her – drop dead gorgeous, dynamic and successful. She now has an Emmy tucked under her belt for the reality cookery show she hosts on TV, ‘Top Chef’.

For women, 40 is a fabulous age.

At the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, Padma Lakshmi looked radiant in a strapless navy chiffon Carolina Herrera gown. Complementing the gown was a somewhat unusual necklace for a red carpet appearance. The statement piece is from her eponymous jewelery collection.

The Padma Jewelry Collection by Padma Lakshmi.

The Indian American TV host, author, actor, model and mom looks set to rock the forties. A novelty in the glamour world, Padma Lakshmi is among the few Indian models to have had a career in Paris, Milan and New York. Top designers such as Emanuel Ungaro, Ralph Lauren, and Alberta Ferretti have featured her.

Moving and motion

Hi guys,

I have an outfit post with a difference today. My first animated post. I hope you will get the feel of my rock and roll mood. I was excited to learn how to do this on photoshop and really excited because it works. Cool!



Nice weather today, one of the last chances to wear the mini shorts this year, although it was lovely and sunny, the summer has officially gone and tights are required. The ones I am wearing today by Wolford are perfect because they do adapt to the weather and you can always feel comfortable.
Mixed up with some leather and black nails, the look was rock and roll with a casual attitude.

The Mikey Mouse t-shirt, which I love, an old buy from Ebay. I wanted a cool vintage looking Mikey Mouse tee, I can't really remember how much it was but let's say it was about a fiver, we're talking a few years ago. Anyways a couple of week after I had bought mine, I saw a picture of Rihanna wearing something very similar. It's quite an old photo, but do you guys remember?


I swear, I bought mine first!

Emmy Fashion 2010: The Night’s Best and Worst Dressed




















It was television’s biggest night Sunday evening, and the ladies dressed to impress. Black and navy gowns dominated the red carpet, with jewel tones, neutrals and bold brights helping a few actresses stand out from the crowd.

Kelly Osbourne looked fabulous in her black Tony Ward Emmy dress! (Though I’m not sure I’m sold on the hair.) Still the dress deserves major bonus points – Simple. Elegant. Amazing. It’s a good thing too. Kelly spent her time on the red carpet critiquing other actor’s looks for E!

Unfortunately Edie Falco and Anna Paquin didn’t fare as well in the black dress department. We thought Edie’s made her look too boxy and boring, while Anna’s was a little too over the top. We like the warrior inspired look, but we’d prefer to have seen Anna rock it a little more subtly, and leave the full chest-plate at home. (Plus what is with that seem going right across her waist?!)

Lo Bosworth and Stephanie Pratt were apparently also invited to the Emmy’s but failed to rise to the occasion. Lo looked like she was auditioning for a secretarial role on Mad Men, and Steph seemed to have purchased her snoozeworthy mini-dress from the sale rack of Forever 21. Why were these to there again?

If You Don't Own One, Its Time to Get Yourself A Ladies Cardigan









































Every woman has an article of clothing that they cannot live without--for me it is my simple black ladies cardigan. No matter your age, style, or body type there is a cardigan that will be flattering to your appearance without a doubt. This is the most versatile piece of clothing I own; on any given day of the week I could pair it with a vibrant solid colored collared shirt and a pencil skirt and be off to work with an air of confidence. If when the weekend rolls around I’m feeling lackadaisical, I can dress the same ladies cardigan down by wearing it over a loosely fitted embellished tank top with a pair of fitted jeans.

Red carpet catastrophes at the Emmys





















The red carpet outside the Nokia Theater Sunday evening for the 62nd annual Emmy Awards featured a harem of Grecian goddesses in white, a bevy of midnight blue ballgowns and way too many dresses that make you go "ugh."

While all of Hollywood made the effort to get dressed up, the fashion police could have handed out plenty of tickets for style violations.

Kudos to the cast of "Mad Men" for taking home the Emmy for outstanding drama series, but I have to ask if the ladies in the cast were insane when they chose those unflattering frocks for the evening’s festivities. Red carpet watchers debated all evening long about January Jones’ shiny blue Versace gown. It featured a strapless, sweetheart neckline and full, short hemline in front with a long fishtail in back. While the bodice fit like a glove, the skirt looked too much like a blue UFO hovering around her tiny waistline.

And shame on Donna Karan for tying Elizabeth Moss up in pale lilac knots, while Zac Posen might as well have tarred and feathered Christina Hendricks. The marabou that trimmed Hendricks’ shoulders and full hemline was a disaster.

Fashion Trends - How Fashion Trends Are Started

If you have ever watched any part of the fashion shows that go on each year, you see clothes that will never make it to your local store. In fact, you may never see these things again. As the average consumer, you could never afford any of those things, even if you want to get them. What you can learn from these shows, however, is what may be indeed trickling down in the stores.

You may never find anything that looks remotely like what you see on the runway, or at least that is what you might think. The elements of those designs, however, are going to be everywhere. They take parts and pieces, and usually the general feel of an item from high fashion and then they turn them into clothes that most of us can wear. Things like the line of a skirt, a type of hat, and even a color will dictate the latest fashion trends.

You don't have to look to the runways to find out about the latest fashion trends, however. All you have to do is watch television. What you see on your favorite actors and actresses is what will be coming along very soon. Those who choose the wardrobes for various shows are keeping up with the latest fashion trends, and at times, setting them. You can find a lot of information and inspiration when you watch soap operas, as they always dress nicely, and they are aired very shortly after the episodes are shot.

You can also find out more about the latest fashion trends by looking around the stores. When you see something you have never seen before, it is likely that someone designed this hoping it would catch on. New colors and shapes are often signs that new things are coming around. You only have to decide what you like and what you want to skip. You are going to find that many of the latest fashion trends are not to your liking, but there will always be something there that you do like. This is why we follow the trends, but we all look good in a different way. There are plenty of options, all you have to do is go with what you like and what looks good on you.

Emmy Awards 2010 fashion: Black and white all over the red carpet

The 2010 Emmy Awards will not make any headlines on the front fashion, unless you count all the ladies who went the black and white route. Sometimes it worked -- Tina Fey either tries too hard or not at all, but we thought her beaded Oscar de la Renta struck the right note, interesting but not over the top. Sometimes it didn't -- did anyone else get an urge to go out for a black-and-white cookie after seeing Lauren Graham's oddly-cut number?

My heart is locked

Hi guys,

Today an outfit, which I was wearing the other day. I don't wear black head to toe very often but I was feeling very monochrome, one of my ninja moments! Or maybe it's because I just wanted the star of the show to be my new Disney Couture necklace. This amazing Heart Lock necklace, for the Alice in Wonderland collection.

I totally fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. For me it's has a slightly punk appeal to it because it's a padlock, yet very romantic because it's a heart! Together with a few chains and a key, which is ohhh the cutest!

This fabulous necklace was also kindly sent to me, by Made in Wonderland. Thanks so much guys, I am really chuffed with this gorgeous gift! I have been wearing it now for days in a row and got loads of compliments.

That is why I love Disney Couture jewellery, it's so much fun, so cute and really get you noticed.
