A Bit About: Jeremy Scott

You may know Jeremy Scott for his recent work as Creative Director at Moschino like his McDonalds & Sponge Bob Square pants designs, which have been splattered all over the fashion blogs, heres a quick reminder..

C. R. A. Z. Y !!
Before he became C.D of Moschino, Jeremy Scott (Born in Kansas City, Missouri, U.S) studied Fashion Design at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York.
In 2004 Jeremy designed the futuristic flight attendant costume worn by Britney Spears in her 'Toxic' video and in 2011 he designed the denim two piece worn by Rihanna in her 'We Found Love' video

Then in February of this year he designed 4 costumes for Katy Perrys' half time performance at the Pepsi Super Bowl XLIX
Katy Perry Superbowl 1  If you would like to read about the 4 outfots in more depth, then its all here for you on   www.redcarpet-fashionawrds.com  ♚
I liked his collaboration with the French luxe brand Longchamp, where by he injected his unusual iconic style into the classic Le Pilage tote bag.
The ghouls bags where a favorite with celebs, stylists and fashion bloggers the world over.
Personally I like the Postcard bags

In 2008 Jeremy Scott Collaborated with Adidas, the most famous piece in this collab was his wingtop trainers worn by Nicki Minaj & Cara Delevingne,  (Love her! Nutter!)
There was some controversy over some of his designs, which I believe ended his relationship with Adidas, so there will be no more :(
However, Desdemona style is auctioning off a (very rare) Jeremy Scott x Adidas piece
its his Superstar Peplum jacket as worn by Gwen Stefani (another one I love! she is so inspiring, and I may have had a small girl crush on her since my indie days in the 90s)

I hope you have enjoyed reading my piece on Jeremy Scott, what do you think of his designs?
I would definitely wear that red dress Rihanna has on above
Thanks for reading....

Trend Alert: "Don't Pull The Short Straw" you do not want to miss out on this Summer trend: Straw hand bags

Straw hand bags are often made of plaited raffia, cane, dried grass or rushes.
In the mid 1950s straw hand bags appeared on the arms of all the fashion movie elite, in the south of France such as Brigitte Bardot, Elizabeth Taylor & Jane Birkin.



Elizabeth Arden went on to create a high-fashion take on a shrimp basket in 1956, outfitted with a compass!!


By 1958 woven basket bags were staples of high fashion magazines, and still as stylish today as they were then,




With designers such as Kate Spade, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Lulu Guinness & Bottega Veneta have all designed their own take on this classic bag










Here's how some of you fashionistas rock yours....

The Secret to Wearing High Heels Without Pain

 
So this a repost from Fashion Stylist Leslie Christen I will definitely be trying this out...
 
If you've ever hobbled home after a long day or night in heels, this is the tip for you!
Tape your third and forth toes (counting from the big toe) together - We recommend nude medical tape for a low-profile look, but Scotch tape works in a pinch- to alleviate pain in the ball of your foot.
Sound crazy?
Here's the reasoning:
There's a nerve that splits between those two toes, which causes pain when pressure is put upon it, (a.k.a. when you wear heels). The tape removes the strain on the nerve, allowing you to dance the night away.
You're Welcome!
 
Let me know if any of you try this out and if it works for you, or have you already tried this? what do you think?

Hair Competition (part 2) 1940’s Autumn hair

So,
My last post was about the Christmas hair Competition, so I thought I’d just let you know about our latest competition,
the theme was “The Seasons”. I chose Autumn, I must admit Summer is my favorite month by a mile, but I do love the Autumn sun, and the colours of the leaves in Autumn
I also chose to put my spin on the hairstyle ;) and went for a Vintage 1940s style with Victory Rolls at the front and designed a cute row of vertical rolls at the back and then added a hair slide I made with some decorative acorns, toadstools, feathers etc
Aaaaaaaand…………….. I won 1st Prize!!

image-1image (2)

I created this look by curling all the hair first with tongs, the two front sections that created the victory rolls were curled back away from the face, and the back all curled in the same direction with the tong held vertically, which helped create the rolls at the back
The rolls were created by twisting them around my index finger and rolling them in towards the scalp, then securing with grips and hairspray
Hope you like it! :)

oh and before I finish, here’s the mood board I had to do first, to present my inspirations and materials I was going to use.



Thanks for reading!!
Have a lovely weekend

Rochester Vintage Wedding Fair

Heya! Readers,
Well, I was asked recently to help out with the hair at The Rochester Vintage Wedding Fair last Saturday
 I spent some of my Friday night perfecting my Victory Rolls and wedding hair / updos, hoping this is what I would get a chance to do..


But....... some of the models pulled out at the last minute or just didn't show up on the day
so friends and family were pulled into strut their stuff in a wedding dress
unfortunately for me, a lot of them had too shorter hair for victory rolls and up dos, or didn't want their hair up (headache!)
Still, it all went smoothly and I have a couple of photos to share with you.....


They all looked beautiful
