OK, so I have so many FashionHaps flying around in my life right now that things are getting a bit dicey in terms of what pics go where, so bear with me on this - I do have a better snap of Stephanie's outfit here and it will be forthcoming in the vey next post. Promise! In the meantime, suffice to say that it's a bell-sleeved top paired with a flared skirt with a side slit. We haven't sen styling like this much from Steph and I completely adore EVERYthing about this pairing. The bell sleeves are beautiful, on-trend and give a goddess-like vibe to this look, while the flared mini skirt bring elements of both power and femininity. I love the way the flared shape balances out the boxy top, defining her waist and creating a wonderful visual shape - just flawless! The only thing that puts a little hiccough in my thrillage is her choice of tan suede boots. They're a bit jarring, especially when I know she has a perfect pair of pointy-toed leather ones in black that she could have employed instead ;).
Maryse has begin to switch her look up from the bodysuit and OTKs which is awesome. There's no reason to get bored with fashion by doing too much of a good thing ;). This foray into different territory involved a red elbow-sleeved dress with a wonderful ballet neckline and a fun interplay of panelling in leather and knit. The tension between those two textures brings an attractive twist to this simple sheath. One caveat: I note that the leather seems to be challenging to design in and wants to pucker a bit, which would make me think that if you're buying a dress like and don't have Maryse's flawless figure, you'll want to be very careful about fit. Maryse finished the look with gooooooorgeous crossed-ankle-strap back leather pumps from Louboutin. Classic black pumps with a bit of a twist are always a welcome addition..to outfits, to closets, to gift boxes.. :)
Red also looked right to Renee, as we saw her wear it twice in October. The first outfit paired a trapeze-style halter in a bohemian paisley print with black denim and so-hot-right-now burgundy OTKs. The burgundy top with the matching boots is a dynamite combo and I love the halter styling! It's super important with a flowy top like this to have skinny pants on the bottom, as Renee did, to create definition, so be aware of that when styling looks that include the trapeze silhouette. I'm an even bigger fan of her second look, a fabulous mix of casual and luxe which combines a red silk shirt with a leather moto jacket and black denim. Her leather choker gives this a nice au courant vibe. I'm envisioning this outfit being finished with flat leather ankle booties (or pointy toe pumps for a slightly more elevated look).
This jumpsuit is one of my favorite recent looks from Sasha, as it starts to carry her Boss persona into her fashion, blending edginess with cool glam. The single-piece style is sleek and the stud accents give it that bit of attitude I've been hoping for from her. Her pointy black leather pumps finish the look with fierce chic. Her studded sunnies add just the right extra dose of over-the-top drama.
How about this for a change-up from Maryse: a bib-front sheath with a neck-tie detail, topped with a cape-style coat? Bet you didn't see that coming! This vintage-tinged styling is not a place we often see her venture into, but she makes it her own by bringing in other elements that bend the style to her fashion will. The envelope-pushing cape coat adds a fashion-foward feel, while her sleek patent boots lend modernity. Most crucial of all is her anything-but-sweet blackberry lip shade, which gives the look a distinctly edgy spin. Now, that seems totally like Maryse!
Drama was the order of the day for Summer as she attended the UNICEF Masquerade Ball. This whole look is amazing: luxe, beautiful and theatrical. She paired a cape-jumpsuit, done in a material with a wonderful flow and drape, with luscious burgundy suede pumps. The cape on this piece extends to floor, giving it tremendous impact and presence (and it was probably crazy fun to wear too! :) ) The plunge front jumps ramps up that drama with a big spike of sultriness, while the floral detail at the shoulders adds a pretty and elegant touch. But perhaps the most eye-catching piece of her look is that aaaaaaamazing laser cut mask! The artistry of the piece is incredible - it's so intricate and yet so delicate! And there's always something about a mask that feels clandestine and seductive. It's not an easy element to incorporate in a look (the most memorable example I've ever seen is Audrey Hepburn's use of one in How To Steal A Million), but there are certain occasions which warrant its use and Summer wins serious Fierce points for knowing both when and how to incorporate it! She flashes equal style chops at a Halloween Gatsby-themed party as she channels a glamorous flapper in this Tadashi Shoji dress and elegant headpiece. Can you just imagine some belle of the roaring Twenties stepping out on to Jay Gatsby's balcony with a needed glass of champagne after one too many tangos with arrogant millionaires, wondering to herself for a moment if there isn't a deeper way to live?
