Irina Shayk was also a guest attendee of the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, an annual dinner held to raise money for WHCA scholarships and honor the professional recipients of the WHCA’s journalism awards.

The Russian supermodel showcased her incredible figure in a classy Yves Saint Laurent Fall 2011 number.

I don’t exactly know why I’m such a sucker for white on the red carpet, but  … doesn’t it look perfect?

Blake Lively – February On Gossip Girl Set

Thanks to the Gossip Girl On Set pictures, we got the chance to see the lovely Blake Lively at work, and considering the fact that over the past month she enjoyed an off the radar phase, this is pretty nice.

Spotted in New York City, on the last day of February, the beautiful actress was facing the cold days of winter, keeping it warm and stylish at the same time.

To style the black pair of skinny jeans, Blake wore a double breasted Kaelen Ombre wool coat, featuring a notched collar, a 2-button closure and lightly padded shoulders.

A pair of Ecco Hobart Buckle 25 MM boots and a Yves Saint Laurent ChYc Cabas tote in blue, from the Fall 2011 collection, complemented the smart city look.

The finishing touches were given by a printed scarf and black leather gloves. Life on set must be great !

Essentials : Episode 02 – Black Leather Leggings

I know, I know, black leather leggins are not exactly an essential piece in our wardrobe, but somehow this season I begin to think they are. I must say I still don’t own anything leathery, I practically don’t even know why, maybe because it wasn’t my style up until now, but I’m slowly falling into this trend and I think I might try them very soon :D.

To be prepared when that moment comes and also for all of you who do own a pair of leather leggins, the next three looks may come in handy.

The first almost all-black look, gives a little bit of edge to our “on-the-go” pieces and it is Rock&Roll meets Biker Chick inspired but on a softer level. I couldn’t decide on the t-shirt as I found two adorable ones : I Love Cats ( I’m a cat person, yes) and the cute Kate Mouse Tee.

01.Black-Leather-Leggings---Edgy

I used : The Row – Occayne stretch-leather leggings; Simeon Farrar For Japan – Kate Mouse cotton T-shirt; Vince – Quilted leather motocross jacket; Alexander McQueen – Swarovski crystal double-skull ring; Zoe Karssen – I Heart Cats cotton and modal-blend T-shirt; Marc Jacobs – Cooper quilted leather shoulder bag; Belstaff – Barkmaster leather boot.

 

The second look is more urban, more feminine, it’s all about the sheer materials and the high heels :

02.Black-Leather-Leggings---Sexy

I used : The Row – Occayne stretch-leather leggings; Equipment – Signature leopard-print silk-chiffon shirt; Stella McCartney – Faux suede high-cut pumps; Giles & Brother – Archer 10-karat gold-plated cuff; Karl Donoghue – Shearling gilet; Miu Miu – Madras leather clutch.

 

Sequined top, high heels, sparkly earrings and of course the final look is perfect for a night out:

03.Black-Leather-Leggings---Party

I used : The Row – Occayne stretch-leather leggings; Milly – Victoria suede and leather clutch; Yves Saint Laurent – Studded suede platform sandals; Dannijo – Cambria silver-plated Swarovski crystal earrings; Anna Sui – Sequined mesh top.
