Yesterday was the annual fashion event of the year and it did for sure not dissapoint! Even though the styles and themes of the night were a bit split, the red carpet was filled with gorgeous looking ladies and gentlemen. I just love all these kinds of events, when you get to see both TV-, movie- and music stars together attending the same event, with loads of beautiful dresses and amazing hair and make-up.
Pictures say more than words, so take a look below!
These first 2 collages are of my favourite outfits from the night:
Left to right: Anne Hathaway, Cara Delevingne, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, Diane Kruger,
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, Gisele Bunchen, Anna Kendrick
Left to right: Joan Smalls, Kendall Jenner, Suki Waterhouse, Lily Aldridge,
If you've followed my blog for a while, you might know that this is my all time favourite designer when it comes to dresses and gowns. If I ever have the honour of attending a red carpet, this will be the designer I will turn to for help. It would be so incredible to walk down the carpet, with a gorgeous creations like these below on my body.
The dresses below are my favourites from this year's Elie Saab Spring Couture collection.
...it would be a real dream come true! Ever since my interest in celebrities and fashion started that one day in sixth grade, Coachella has been one of the major topics on my "To-do-before-I-die-list". It's everything you could ever want from a festival, gorgeous fashion, great music, warm weather and famous beautiful people.
Because the festival is the topic on everyone's mouth right now, I've put together a few outfits similar to what I would be wearing if I went to Coachella.
Miley Cyrus new campaign for Marc Jacobs was released the previous weekend. The photos, taken by David Sims, shows Milet toegther with other models on an abandoned beach with post-apocalyptic feelings.
Personally, I really don't like the photos. I don't think that Miley is approriate as a model and I'm actually a bit dissapointed with Marc Jacobs for choosing her. She has the same facial expression on every picture, pouting those lips and looking like a sad and grumpy little kid that didn't get it's candy.
This campaign get a big thumbs down from me, even though the setting and the background otherwise is very impressive and a bit surrealistic a la Dalí.
Yesterday it was time for the 86th Academy Awards, or more commonly known as the Oscars. This is the absolute hightlight of all the award shows, for all kinds of entertainment people. It's the most prestige award you can get as an actor, a director or anything that has to do with the movie business.
For me, this whole event is as much about fashion and celebrities as it is about the actual meaning of the awards. Therefore, there will be a bit of both. Below I've listed all of the categories and the winners. After that, it's time for some fashion!

Here are my favourite looks from the night
Amy Adams in a gorgeous dark blue dress that suits her skin and hair perfectly!
Anne Hathaway in a glamorous bejeweled black dress that is quite simple, but with that little extra!
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, the never aging couple. They never seem to dissapoint when it comes to red carpet looks!
Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan looked absolutely gorgeous last night! Quickly back in shape after giving birth to their first child and showing off her success in this completely mindblowing creation.
Emma Watson is of course super stylish as always. Smokey eyes and red lips can never go wrong on a red carpet and Emma pulls it off perfectly pairing it with a black dress with some subtle sparkle to make everything a bit more interesting.
Jennifer Lawrence looks beyond gorgeous, beautiful and everything in between in this orange red dress. This look takes my mind back to her first Oscar appearance and shows in a great way the development this amazing actress has had these last three years.
Naomi Watts looks angel-like in this beautiful modern white creation. White was a really popular colour among the celebrities' dresses this year.
Sandra Bullock is someone whom you wouldn't expect to be one who's that interested in fashion, but she impresses me every time there's an award show with her impecable dress choices.
Below you can watch the full Marc Jacobs Fall 2014 Ready To Wear collection which was the last and closing show of the New York Fashion Week.
Personally, I wasn't too impressed by the clothes, not really my sense of style. I did however think that it was really interesting with the clouds hanging above the viewers and the extremely long runway. Some of the pieces, once the more sparkly and wearable ones begin to come, are actually really nice. But as always, for me at least, I rarely find complete clothing pieces that I like. More often it's about colors and patterns, or maybe a kind of fabric. This collection is unfortenately no exception.
Also, if you look really closely, you can also make out Kendall Jenner from one of the models.
Afternoon everyone! Today the Valentine topic is going to circle about my very favourite subject... fashion!
Regardless of your relationship status, Valentine's Day is the perfect time to bring out the girly you. While I may not be the person with the most Valentine's Day experience (a comfy night in front of a romantic movie with cookies is perfect for me), I'm for sure a big fan of pink, red and the overall girliness that comes from a perfect Valentine's Day combination.
Below are some ideas to help you through this years most romantic holiday!
Your closet has seen trends come and go, but the basics - that perfectly worn-in white tee, your trusty blue jeans, and go-to nude flats - are forever. You can rest assured that these key pieces will never go out of style or lose their street-chic appeal. Simply put: they’re the building blocks to the perfect wardrobe. So whether you’re looking to start over or simply wish to update an old favorite, shop these picks now.
Perfect White Tee
It doesn’t get any more classic than a white t-shirt. The best styles are super soft and have a relaxed, lived-in fit. A crewneck cut is a no-brainer, but I also like a V-neck style because it’s a little sexier and the perfect canvas for layering necklaces.
During the more brisk months of fall and spring, a lightweight knit is your best friend. Layer it over a collared blouse during the week, then swap in a pair of boyfriend jeans for the weekend. My advice? Have several in different colors.
The good news about the pencil skirt is that it’s moving out of office-only territory. I love the piece after-hours paired with a slinky silk cami or t-shirt.This piece looks best in more calm colors, but if you're a color freak a bright one works as good.
Go ahead and splurge for this outerwear essential: I promise the investment will be worth it. For one, you can wear it year round, and two, leather jackets only get better with age. Go for a classic black or be more daring with a white or red one.
Diane von Furstenberg is celebrating 40 years of her emblematic wrap dress - you can see the “Journey of a Dress” exhibition at LACMA in Los Angeles now (if you're lucky to be there) - so you can be sure this is a silhouette that will stand the test of time.
When you need a break from your heels, a nude flat serves as the ideal substitute. Straddling the line between dressy and casual, this functional footwear style is just at home with a pair of tailored trousers as it is a floral sundress. Choose a bit more interesting model to take your style to the next level, with a pair of scalloped flats like the ones below.
The suede ankle boot has been a must-have ever since Isabel Marant released the now infamous Dicker boot. With countless versions available, finding a heel height, cut, and color that suits your style is easy.
Yesterday was the last day of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week here in Stockholm. The ones I really looked forward to were Filippa K and Tiger of Sweden, but was actually a bit dissapointed by the collections. I had expected a bit more... But there were some good stuff aswell, as you'll see below.
This last day, in my opinion, was the least exciting when it comes to fashion. Nothing really special about the collections and as I mentioned, not many outfit I liked either. My favourite day must have been yesterday. I became aware of quite many new designers that I really liked and was positively surprised by many collections, with many favourite looks.
However, here's the summary of yesterday!
All the pictures were taken from the MBFW Stockholm's website.
Love the combination of these colors, though I find it more spring then autumn/winter. The pieces itself is not really something you're able to take directly from the runway, but my favourites from this line.
Beckmans College of Design
This dress is quite revealing, being both short and having multiple cutouts, but it still made a bigger impression to me than the rest of the looks.
Now this is an outfit that you could actually wear! I really like the combination of the pieces and both the colors and the fabrics are well suitable for the season.
This was my favourite designer from yesterday. I had a bit difficult time choosing the outfit to post here, since I had multipe favourites. But I decided to go with this one because it's a perfect casual outfit for a hot late summer/early fall day, both for work and after.
The color of this outfit, camel/mustard, has been coming back season after season and from what it looks like, it will this year aswell. It's a bit of a difficult color to pull of, so make sure that it looks good on you. Otherwise, I think the design of this top.
The male outfit of the day! This outfit is really classy and stylish, which I think is really important when dressing a guy. I think this also was the only look with regular long pants and since I'm not a big fan of ankle pants, it wasn't hard to choose the right outfit.
Rookies - Swedish Fashion Talents
This show was the only one with a bit of Haute Couture inspired dresses, which of course I love. Especially this creation caught my eye, because of it's beautiful colors and fabric. A real fluffy dream dress!
Tiger of Sweden
Tiger of Sweden was one of the brands I really looked forward to seeing, but dissapointed me a bit. This outfit though, was definately no dissapointment! Classic "calm" palette for the season, a beautiful dress and a jacket in an interesting fabric makes a great combination!
This Brazilian supermodel never fails so surprise. The gorgeous Adriana Lima looks like a complete bronze goddess in the latest campaign from Donna Karan. Wearing exotic drapey print dresses and leather necklaces she looks absolutely stunning.
Day 2 of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week here in Stockholm was yesterday, and of course I'll give you the latest updates. Since I personally don't have a pass to go and see the shows myself, these summarys come a day later. But hopefully that's okey and still interesting to all you fashion geeks like me.
Enough said, here's my favourites from yesterday!
All the pictures were taken from the MBFW Stockholm's website.
Love the fact that tey're playing a bit with different cuts of the hem of their skirts. The color is beautiful aswell!
The bow-thing on the head I'm not so sure of, but otherwise I think the dress is simple yet beautiful. The scarf adds a little twist to the otherwise classic outfit.
This designer used "regular" women as her models, which also is visible in the pieces of the collection. This outfit though I think is wearable for multiple age groups.
H&M Design Awards
This creation is absolutely gorgeous, how every color is highlighted thanks to the surrounding. The top part has beautiful shoulders, that gives this outfit a more elegant look.
House of Dagmar
The leather is, as previously mentioned, very popular the upcoming season and definately something you should think about investing in. This time it's a leather skirt combined with a top that kind of melts in to the skirt, while being beautifully contrasting to the material of the skirt.
Unfortunately I didn't like much of this designer's creations this season. But what I did like was the pattern of this skirt and the combination of these colors. It's not a traditional kind of combination, which may be one of the reasons why I like it. Also I'm a big fan of the warm palette, so this suits my personal preferences perfectly!
I'm not so sure about the combination of socks and pumps, but otherwise this outfit is gorgeous! A black lace party dress paired with red heels taht add a bit of color to the outfit. And let's not forget the amazing long coat with fur collar. Perfect for winter!
This was my favourite brand this far through the fashion week. Almost every outfit is wearable and just my taste, so no wonder that it was extrememly hard for me to pic a favourite! I chose this one because it's perfect both for day and night, perfect outfit for a Friday if you're heading out afterwards.
This coat is gorgeous aswell, the color is perfect for fall and one of my favourites for that season. Even though the combination of the pieces is not the very best in my opinion, I love the fabric of the upper piece, it adds something special to this outfit and makes it stand out among the others.
This collection of jewellery is something a bit different for a fashion week, which is mostly about clothes. But I think it's really good to mix it up and add something out of the ordinary. These rings ain the picture above are the favourite pieces from her collection. They're simple, yet adds something special to both your everyday-outfit as the one for an event.
Yesterday was the start to three days of the newest fashion, hottest celebrities and loads of street style inspiration. Swedish designers have work hard to get a spot in this gorgeos fashion week and only the best of the best have made it. The main locations for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week A/W 2014 is at the well-renowned Berns in central Stockholm and at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Pavilion. I've walked past there numerous times before, trying to catch a glimpse of the gorgeous outfits and eye-locking designs. But, only la crème de la crème are invited and us mortals have no chance of entering.
Fortunately, that doesn't stop me from getting you the latest updates! Here below you can see my personal favourites from yesterday's shows.
All the pictures were taken from the MBFW Stockholm's website.
Stylish work outfit, directly from the runway!
LOVE the jacket and the contrast to the bright red skirt
The fabric of both the blouse and the pants are amazing
The silhouette of this dress is gorgeous
This is my favourite outfit of all of what I've seen, could definately see myself wearing that!
Leather with leather was a popular combination this year
This top is beyond my imagination, gorgeous!
This coat/jacket is perfect for the autumn/winter season, an investment to look forward to
ARMY OF ME
Even a bit of men fashion, this is a bit of a rockier look
This gorgeous fashionista is always on top of my best dresed list. This time it's no different. Looking both stylish and being warm at the same time, this girl really knows how to work it. Matching a fluffy lavender colored jumper with a pretty black skirt and platform heels to die for, she's definately nailing one of my favourite spring looks!
I'm just about to head to the gym (again) for a quick Zumba class, but before that I thought I'd share with you some of the things on my spring to buy-list. These gorgeous pieces both mix well together and adds some of the cuteness and freshness that comes with spring.
Here's comes a little style inspiration from one of my favourite style bloggers Scent Of Obsession. This is a really casual outfit, apropriate for work, school or just running some errands. Feel comfy and look absolutely stylish, all at the same time!
The first impression, or the overall picture, is very important when it comes to work. People tend to respect those who dress appropriatly more than those who come in sweats and hoodies (are there evebn any of you out there?). But let’s be clear: I'm not saying a standout blazer or a killer pair of heels will directly translate to a bump in your pay scale. However, I do think that the right workplace wardrobe will increase your confidence, elevate how others see you, and make you look the part of upper management. And it can’t hurt, right?
It is allowed to experiment with prints, just keep the color palette limited to ensure a professional effect and not make anyone angry because of your love of daring colors.
Anne-Laure Mais of Adenorah
When it comes to patterns, a grid print feels fresher than plaid, yet is still workplace-appropriate. For a classic look, go for a black/navy and white mix.
Sara of Collage Vintage
Red exudes confidence and power—never a bad thing in the workplace. But if you're going to a job interview and meeting the people there for the first time, I'd go for a blue color, since blue often means that you're put together, responsible and trustworthy.
Kate Davidson Hudson
You can get away with wearing a sleeveless blouse in a conservative office environment by topping it with a classic blazer. It's super stylish aswell, and perfect for warmer days, when a coffee with friends after work is common.
Beautiful model Cara Delevingne has gotten a lot of attention this last year and has been rated as one of the most desirable and asked for models. This time she's starring in Mulberry's Spring/Summer campaign, looking absolutely gorgeous. All the bags are to die for, and I would for sure get many of them if I got the money.
The campaign has a romantic/Alice in Wonderland theme, love it!
The last post was dedicated to the Golden Globes in general, with winners and fashion in lots. Now it's time for my 6 favourite looks from this year's awards!
Emma Roberts looks flawless in this beautiful and classic black gown. Keeping the hair and make-up simple, the dress really gets to make the impression, with a pair of beautiful light blue earrings to top off the outfit.
Jennifer Lawrence in Dior, do I have to say anything else? The dress is simple, yet outstanding, with a very interesting design that can make anyone yealous of miss Jennifer's figure. In my personal opinion, the eye make-up is a tiny bit to heavy, but otherwise a gorgeous outfit!
Lousie Roe in an incredible red dress that matches her hair and skintone flawlessly. You may or may not remember this beautiful Bristish fashionista that's appeared in the second season of "The City", hosted her own show called "Plain Jane" and written tons of fashion articles for Vogue UK, Elle UK and so on. I think that this look is one of my absolute favourites this year, I mean just look at her!
Mila Kunis looks like a goddess in Guci Premiére's silvery gown. She's keeping everything else simple, focusing on the amazing work on the top part of the dress, with some gorgeous flowers and a bit of sparkle!
Olivia Wilde was also wearing a Gucci Premiére dress, pulling this look off even more glamorously than Mila Kunis. This gorgeous bottle green dress is the perfect choice for Olivia, highlighting her tall figure, beautiful hair and that amazing bone structure of hers that anyone can get jealous of. And of course, the baby bump. This is my other absolute favourite look of this year. Have you ever seen a more beautiful and glowing woman?
Sarah Hyland in Georges Hobeika is going for a more natural and soft look this year. The beautiful pink color really accentuates her beautiful hairdo, keeping it simple yet gorgeous braid. Even though I don't really agree with her stylists' chioce of make-up, I think she pulls it off quite well.
