The Amazing Style of Marilyn Monroe!

Classical style that has passed through generations. Marilyn Monroe’s style still inspires many today. The glamour of her outfits filled with glitz and glam are everlasting and beautiful creations in varying colours. She always coordinated her make-up and shoes so well with her stunning outfits. Let’s take a trip down vintage fashion lane and look back at some of her stunning style:

The Amazing Style of Bessie Smith!

Bessie Smith had a stunning sense of style. Her 1920s fashion sense is still as popular today. Her outifits were timeless and beautiful and are works of art. The headpieces she wore in particular are stunning and so well-crafted. Her outfits were fun, showtime and glamourous and who doesn’t like clothes which are fun, showtime and glamourous?

Bessie’s make-up was also beautiful and very classical.

Let’s take a look at some of Smith’s beautiful hairstyles and get some hair inspiration!

 

Andreja Pejic Lands First Fashion Magazine Cover With Marie Claire Spain Following Her Gender Reassignment Surgery

Andreja Pejic has landed her first magazine cover with Marie Claire Spain following her gender reassignment surgery. The 24-year-old model appears on the magazine’s cover for their March 2016 edition looking very beautiful in a sheer crocheted dress with the headline next to her reading “Romper El Tabú” (“Breaking the Taboo”). Pejic appears in an eight-page spread and four-page cover story entitled, “Fuera De La Crisálida” (“Out of the Chrysalis.”)

Andreja was also named Marie Claire Spain’s Model of the Year. Past winners of the prestigious accolade include Saskia de Brauw, Irina Shayk, Gemma Ward, Arizona Muse, Doutzen Kroes, Linda Evangelista and Anja Rubik.

Speaking of her win, Andreja said,

“Receiving the ‘Model Of The Year’ award from Marie Claire Spain with previous title-holders – which include some of my favorite models like Saskia, Anja, Arizona, Gemma and Linda – I mean, need I really explain!? It feels beyond to have my name follow and gives me hope in showing that girls like us are girls that are just as good!”

She also recently spoke at the Time To THRIVE Conference, which took place on Valentine’s Day in Texas, about growing up, her journey to realising she was a transgender woman and her inspiring campaign with Kenneth Cole. The part where she said she was a loner in school and read a lot reminded me of my own experiences. She gave a really interesting and articulate speech at the conference which you can view below:

I loved Viola’s Davis’ red gown on the night. I love the sparkles at the top and the fabric is wonderfully luxurious.

Alicia Vikander

Lupita Nyong’o

I have always loved Lupita Nyong’o’s style and her outfit on the night was yet another fashion success. There is a wonderful hippie quality to the dress which is always brilliant and her bag matches beautifully with her dress. One of my three favourite outfits on the night.

Saoirse Ronan

Our very own Saoirse Ronan was nominated on the night for Best Actress for her role in Brooklyn and like Alicia Vikander chose a beautiful understated white gown with a stunning trail.

Emma Stone

Winner of Best Supporting Actor in a series, mini-series or TV movie for his role in The Normal Heart, Matt Bomer looked amazing in his very classic blue suit and matched his dickey bow brilliantly to his shoes which made me smile because the shoes reminded me of the type of shoes my dad loved and of course my dad was a very stylish man so clearly Matt Bomer is too.

The Amazing Photography Of Damon Baker!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Fashion photographer Damon Baker hails from a small town in Worcestershire in England and like many people from small towns the 25-year-old photographer is making a big mark in his chosen creative field of fashion photography. He has already photographed Jared Leto, Shannon Leto, James Franco, Courtney Love, Michelle Williams, Ellie Goulding, Mark Ronson, Jonathan Groff, Mr Hudson, Candice Huffine, Jourdan Dunn, Cara Delevingne, George Shelley, Agyness Deyn, Jessie J, David Gandy, Paris Hilton and Fearne Cotton amongst many more and has three very regular muses that he photographs Andreja Pejic, Rita Ora and Taylor Swift.

tumblr_ncmi25psfo1ryiyrho1_500

tumblr_n9uhvqrhqj1ryiyrho1_400

The three things that hit you instantly about Baker’s photography or at least hit me instantly are the naturalness he seems to bring out of his subjects, the retro feel and the sense that there is a narrative to the photographs. It’s all very well taking pictures that look visually brilliant which Baker does but if there’s no sense of story that drags you into the photograph well there’s not much point, is there? And Baker in his work certainly doesn’t overlook this aspect. Possibly it’s the writer in me that loves a sense of narrative in everything.

But Miss Pejic doesn’t just excel in the fashion stakes when it comes to her look. She has also created her own set of eyeshadows with Make Up For Ever when she became the first transgender model to be the face of a major cosmetics brand after been the first transgender model to be profiled by Vogue also.
