Spring 2012 Wishlist

Today it finally felt like Spring ! I cannot tell how excited it makes me feel, watching a sunny sky, feeling a warmer breeze, dropping a layer of clothes … it’s just wonderful. Mostly I’m excited for the part, where this Spring, I’ll pump up the volume in my wardrobe. I feel like trying new things.

I could say it’s almost a new beginning, as I’m switching from all the blacks and the greys and …let’s say neutrals, to COLORS …finally, I cannot way to put on colors and more colors …

For that, I’m thinking a pastel (or bright colored) pair of skinny jeans, pumps or stilettos covered in citron or bright orange, and cute color-block clutches and bags.

I might be slightly late on some trends, but hey … I guess everything happens right when it’s supposed to. Besides colors, this Spring I’m developing a mild crush on Peter Pan collars, as they look so sweet and girlie, that’s the nerdy me talking, and also on jewelry with tribal accents and motifs … I guess that’s the boho part of me reaching out.

To all this, add gold large cuffs, statement necklaces and maybe a slightly more casual Little Black Playsuit … and the result, is my also written in paper, Spring 2012 Wishlist. To get an idea of what I’m imagining, I put up a mix of cute and affordable items, that strongly resemble the picture inside my head :

Brands : Topshop – Leather Rhinestone Collar; Tall MOTO – Jamie Jeans; ShoeMint – Veronique pumps in citron; Topshop – Patterned Arm cuff; ALDO – Virga Clutch Bag; Topshop – Full Skirted Playsuit with Cut Out; Topshop – Mask Stud Earrings.

For more inspiration I turned to Pinterest and here’s what I found:

Michelle Williams – Tonight Show with Jay Leno In Jason Wu

On January 5, Michelle Williams paid a visit to the Tonight Show studios for a chat with Jay Leno about her latest movie, My Week with Marilyn, the Golden Globe nomination and her latest vacation in Mexico. For this occasion, the beautiful actress wore a Jason Wu Spring 2012 RTW Peplum Dress, and it looked both sweet and chic.

The playful sleeveless peplum dress was paired with the black version of the Fendi Grosgrain Bow-Front Pumps. Michelle made a simplicity statement for this appearance, wearing no jewelry and letting the splattered Swarovski Elements on the dress do all the sparkle.

An orange nail color and the super cute blonde pixie cut finished the look.

I’m just sad I couldn’t find any pictures with Michelle standing as I’m sure the dress would have looked even better, not that I’m complaining. Having the Jason Wu Spring 2012 collection amongst my favorites, I can only hope I’ll get to see more of it this year.

Coco Rocha – Glamorous In Zac Posen

Being the image of Zac Posen’s Resort 2012 collection and a big fan of the brand (Zac Posen made her wedding dress too), it’s no wonder that Coco Rocha – The Queen of Posing – opted for a gown from the designer’s Spring 2012 collection, for the Letters To Haiti Premiere in NYC.

From a multitude of “Old Hollywood Glam” inspired dresses, Coco chose to wear this beautiful dark blue, black belted tulle gown.

She accessorized the floor length gown with a statement necklace, maybe the runway served as inspiration, perfect smokey eyes and side swept soft curls.

The dress looks impeccable on her and the styling served his purpose on this occasion.

Jessica Biel – Dreamy In Valentino

With the New Years Eve Premiere in NYC, I was given the opportunity to see a beautiful Jessica Biel, wearing a dress from the amazing Valentino Spring 2012 collection, an interesting combination and an exciting appearance for Jessica.

The maxi sparkly crystal beaded gown, was sophisticated with a hint of bohemian (love) and would have been just perfect had a few more inches in lenght.

The long-sleeve, drop-waist romantic dress was paired with gold “Anna” sandals by Christian Louboutin, a snakeskin clutch and of course Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

I much prefer the model’s hair style from the runway for this particular dress, but overall this is the best I have seen Jessica looking in a while now.

Katy Perry – Loving The New Blonde Haircut

It’s true. Everybody (including me) seems to be loving the fact that Katy left both the blue and the pink hair days behind, focusing on a slightly more natural color : blonde with a bit of twist hiding in the lavender highlights.

The chic short bob she debuted on Saturday at the David Lynch Foundation’s Change Begins Within benefit celebration in Los Angeles, seems to be the long awaited change of style I was hoping for. The brunette era was my favorite but look at how beautiful she looks now.

Katy New Look

Katy was wearing a Versace Spring 2012 dress, Barbara Bui golden pumps and a Stella & Dot bracelet.

Katy’s new look was featured On E!News, watch the video below :

Jessica Alba – Bronze Chic in Thakoon

Staying  true to her recently developed ladylike Red Carpet style, Jessica Alba chose golden for the March of Dimes 6th Annual Celebration of Babies Luncheon, that took place last weekend, in Beverly Hills.

Wearing a sleeveless, knee-length dress with bronze accents, Jessica looked beautiful in this simplified Thakoon Spring 2012 version.

Pairing this perfect holiday outfit with a golden Giles & Brother necklace and a pair of Brian Atwood ‘Pois’ pumps, Jessica look both sweet and edgy.

I personally like this simplified version of the runway dress, but that printed version looked pretty cool too.

Taylor Swift – Red Hot In Oscar de la Renta

Oscar de la Renta showcased such an amazing collection at this fall’s New York Fashion Week for Spring 2012, that I was very excited to see how most of the looks will turn on the Red Carpet.

If last month Nicki Minaj donned an amazing gown from the same collection at the 2011 American Music Awards, this week Taylor Swift attended the Billboard’s Women in Music event at Capitale, in New York City, looking elegant in a red ODLR tulle dress.

Leaving behind the sparkly gowns and the curly hair-styles, Taylor looked fresh and feminine in this form-fitting red-belted dress that she chose to pair with nude Prada pumps.

Red Hot lips and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry complemented her ladylike appearance. I have got to mention the hair as the country pop singer switched to a super straight, front bangs, new and shiny hairdo.
