Summer Kind Of Wonderful

All the bad weather, the rain, the wind and the cold days, ended up being a little bit useful considering the fact that by not going out as often as I wished, I managed to eventually catch up on some of my favorite indoor activities. With summer officially starting yesterday, I could not help but dream about the warm weather, the sun and the comfortable, easy and light clothes waiting patiently to be worn.

One of my favorite ways to relax, while also doing some much needed “research”, is by browsing tens of celebrity pictures, caught during their off-hours; the perfect way to spot the trends, get lots of inspiration and find new favorites. I could do it for hours !

In the last couple of days, I came across with three different looks that celebrities rocked in May and I thought I’d share my personal thoughts on them, with all of you. I plan on doing this more often!

Oteea's-PicksFor months now, I have been admiring Ali Larter’s new style, that’s so clean, so chic and so effortless. I can’t wait to pair my new white shorts with an oxford style shirt – something that is yet missing in my wardrobe. I love how Ali accessorized with just a bright colored necklace, sand heels/ bag and cool sunnies. Her happiness, much like her stylish look, is contagious

Yes, as previously mentioned, I’m all for white this summer ! And Eva Longoria proves how this is a great choice, looking picture perfect in her white Victoria Beckham Collection mini-dress. I’m already thinking of the many more ways I could style that kind of a simple, yet effective dress. Good thing Eva’s accessories never let down – a brown Hermes bag, a pair of edgy Giuseppe Zanotti Women’s E10191 Open-Toe Ankle Boots and a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses is all it takes to look flawless on a sunny day.

If I could, I would. I would definitely build my new style based on retro-chic inspired pieces only – femininity at its best. Wanna guess who inspires me? Of course it’s Taylor Swift, can you think of a more girlier-girl than her? A loose white shirt and a pair of denim shorts, both by Joe’s, seem like the comfortable way to take on the streets on a hot summer day. Taylor completed her look with Elizabeth and James Benedict sunglasses, a Coach purse and ballet flats. The red lipstick and blue nails look great too.

See you soon, I’m off adding the oxford style shirt to my shopping wish-list ! XO

Charlize Theron – 2012 CinemaCon Awards Gala

I still don’t know how she does it, but every time Charlize Theron puts on a little black dress, her looks never feel dated or boring.

For the 2012 CinemaCon Awards Gala, held in Las Vegas on April 26, during which the actress also received the Distinguished Decade of Achievement in Film Award, Charlize opted to wear a Dion Lee Fall 2012 dress.

Charlize-Theron---Dion-Lee-Fall-2012The black body-con dress signed by the 24 year old Australian designer, featured sexy cut-outs and sheer panels and was paired with black Giuseppe Zanotti ankle strap sandals.

Charlize Theron wore her hair in smooth layers and completed her appearance with a dark metallic eye-shadow.

Jennifer Lopez – American Idol Top 10 Performances

I’m not sure how many of you watch American Idol, I know I didn’t used to, up until Jennifer Lopez became a judge on the show last season and I was pretty much trapped.

I intended to write about all of the amazing outfits Jennifer wears on the show, but I guess I haven’t really found the time to concentrate on that. Whilst watching the show the other night I got really excited when I saw how wonderful Jennifer looked, again, donning an all black outfit and rocking a beautiful leather skirt ( I still love everything leather) …Jennifer-Lopez---Maria-Lucia-Hohan

The best part about all this, was finding out that Jennifer’s amazing look was designed by Maria Lucia Hohan, as the star was wearing a flattering MLH bodysuit, teamed with a black MLH sexy leather pencil skirt. Now this is another breakthrough for one of my favorite designers !

The look was finished with black Giuseppe Zanotti Double Platform pumps, Norman Silverman hoop earrings, a Carrera y Carrera ring and a cuff by Hermes.

Beauty wise, Jennifer sported soft curls and a dark red lip gloss.

Jessica Alba – Deborah Lloyd And Kate Spade New York Host Dinner

After a much needed break and a 4 day short family gathering trip, I’m back, fully recharged and it seems that Spring decided to join us too. With such an amazing weather outside, it’s getting difficult to focus on anything that doesn’t include summer plans, but somehow I’ll manage to do whatever needs to be done, whilst the birds keep on singing outside my window.

On the 4 days spent away from everything internet related (Supernatural doesn’t count), I missed on some outfits I loved, I missed some Red Carpet events worth mentioning ( The Hunger Games Premieres), I postponed some blog ideas I had before leaving, but I’m OK with all this, I need to learn to relax more and really understand that I can’t be in two places at once.

On March 14, Jessica Alba attended the Deborah Lloyd And Kate Spade New York Host Dinner and since I’m so into color this Spring, I couldn’t miss on this particular outfit. And, it’s Jessica we’re talking about.

Jessica-Alba---Kate-Spade-New-York-Fall-2012

The elegant pair of Kate Spade Fall 2012 orange pants, was teamed with a light blue sweater from the same collection and a cool black leather jacket.

Another pop of color was added by the yellow Chambers Street Carly Croc Shoulder bag. Black and white Giuseppe Zanotti Cap Toe pumps from the Fall 2011 collection, complemented the appearance.

Jessica styled her look using a statement ring, red lipstick and a relaxed straight hair do. Nothing out of the ordinary, but how cute is this outfit ? I bet it is pretty inspiring too !

Ginnifer Goodwin – Extra Set at Grove

If this is not your very first time reading this blog, you already now by know that last winter , or should I say this winter … no … let’s stick to last winter, I have developed a crush on anything leathery.

This passion, that still feels actual, is enough reason for me to LOVE the black leather dress Ginnifer Goodwin rocked during her appearance on Extra, on March 2. She is promoting her current series, Once Upon a Time, and looked amazing in the Shoshanna dress.

Ginnifer-Goodwin---Shoshanna

The black leather sleeveless dress, featuring a full pleated skirt and side pockets (cute) will become available once the Shoshanna’s Fall 2012 collection will be released.

To brighten up the look, Ginnifer wore this amazing pair of orange Giuseppe Zanotti sandals, and a statement color block bracelet, mixing cream and orange.

The edgy look was completed by the adorable pixie cut, the gold studs and the sexy sweeps of black liquid liner. *Sigh*

Jessica Alba – V-Day Cocktails and Conversation

Returning to her flirty ladylike style, the beautiful Jessica Alba, attended the V-Day Cocktails and Conversation with Eve Ensler event this week, donning a custom Carolina Herrera creation.

Jessica-Alba---Carolina-Herrera

Her tomato red CH duchess satin cocktail dress, had a sleeveless fitted bodice and a voluminous skirt with pleated details, that resembles a party dress from the glamorous 1960s.

White Giuseppe Zanotti soft ruched satin peep-toe Court shoes and a Stark box hooker creek printed clutch, accessorized the lovely look, together with a GRAY Gallery Vintage bike chain bracelet.

Beauty wise, Jessica opted for straight hair, with a sweet side part ending in a soft wave, smokey eyes and pink glossy lips. Picture perfect, can’t you just adore her ?

Diane Kruger – 62nd Berlin International Film Festival

In terms of fashion, you never know what to expect from Diane Kruger, as she is far from ever choosing safe or boring looks. On the contrary, even without a stylist, she manages to enjoy fashion, in a way that is always fresh, daring and provocative.

During the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival, Diane attended both a photocall and the premiere of Farewell, My Queen (Les Adieux De La Reine), her latest movie, in which she stars as Marie Antoinette, during the final days of the French Revolution.

As she joined her co-stars, french actresses Léa Seydoux and Virginie Ledoyen at the Berlin Photocall, Diane opted for a 10 Crosby Derek Lam Spring 2012 look.

Diane-Kruger---10-Crosby-Derek-Lam-Spring-2012

The springy green flower print dress, worn under a black and white stripped mid-length skirt, was definitely fashion forward and quite unusual. I find that this dress under the skirt trend is slowly taking over Spring fashion, as more stars are giving it a try (remember Blake Lively in Valentino ?).

Pushing it even further, Diane teamed the Derek Lam design, with a pair of yellow Giuseppe Zanotti Spring 2012 embellished sandals. Soft curls and natural make-up finished the look.

10-CROSBY-DEREK-LAM-SPRING-2012

For the Red Carpet movie premiere, Diane Kruger opted for a more glamorous approach, choosing a showstopping gown, part of the Giambattista Valli Spring 2012 Couture collection, presented back in January, during Paris Haute Couture.

Diane-Kruger---Giambattista-Valli-Spring-2012-Couture

The full-length polka dot sequin gown, embellished by a huge bow, had a metallic belt accentuating the waistline. A Judith Leiber Wildcat crystal-embellished clutch, a sleek classic bun and cuffed Repossi ear ornaments, completed the opulent appearance.

With so much detailing going on, someone could have easily gotten lost, but not Diane. She was purely majestic.
