Do YOU have Kardashian Kurves?

Kim, Kourtney and Khloe have launched a contest to find a plussize model for their new denim line. Probably they will choose some gorgeous inbetweenie models, working already in the fashion industry. Choosing the sister of Kims ex, Kris Humphries, a plus-size model that is signed by Ford modeling agency, will probably not be a good idea… Enter the KARDASHIAN KURVES contest before 30 July.


WHIT(n)E(y) label

GO GLAM autumn winter 2012/13 white label collection launching 2nd August with Whitney Thompson. This photoshoot was before she went BLOND again… Beautiful prints and shapes. I already worked with this collection in february, during the Curves On the Catwalk.


Do you like sporty?

When I think about sporty style, curvy women or inbetweenies are the last thing that come to mind. When you’re talking about sporty, I think it’s more like a derivative of sportswear. So sporty influences in garments. Like a dress with influences from the tennis scene. Or a skirt with a hint of hockey. Even sporty chic is something I can relate to. But sportswear is something I’ll wear only when I’m going to the gym. It’s not a style you’ll see in my wardrobe!
Sporty and fuller or curvy don’t really go together, in my opinion. They’re often baggy items that do nothing for the curvy body. So watch out that you don’t go overboard by going sporty all the way. You’ll end up looking like an American tourist or trailertrash. What you wear in the comfort of your own home, that’s up to you of course! Even if it’s sweatpants with a square fleece jumper!

So be inspired by the sport scene, but don’t wear it head to toe. A way to go, for instance, is a nice simple shirt on some tight jeans with heels.

Do:
1.Look for sporty derivative items
2.Shape is everything, so don’t go for square
3.Dress it up with stylish accessories and heels
4.The simpler the more stylish
5.Mix up sporty with edgy or go feminine

TIP! Go for an item made out of a sporty fabric, that can be cute. Totally ripped out of context because of the choice of material.

Don’t:
1.Literally wear sportswear
2.Baggy items (oversized)
3.Watch out with ‘downdressing’ there’s a risk of looking sloppy and frumpy
4.Don’t overexaggerate with sporty elements
5.Follow the trend without staying true to your own style

TIP! This trend can make you look bigger than you actually are, so be careful for that!

Problem areas
1.Large chest area: T-shirts tend to have a very high neckline. Look for a shirt that has a wider neckline or V-neck.
2.Bigger upper arms: pick a jacket made of, for instance, jersey. This creates the sporty effect because of the material. It’s often stretchy, which works wonders for your upper arms.
3.Tummy: Watch out with tops that are too wide around your tummy and have an elasticated waistband on your hips. This accentuates your tummy! Also don’t wear tapered shirts.
4.Wide hips: Wear a top that goes out a little. Wear a slighty longer shirt on a skinny jeans in a light colour. Style it with heels or wedges. A dress is the ultimate garment and hides your hips very well! Of course these dresses also exist in a sporty style, especially when they are made from jersey. Comfy and cute.

ULTIMATE TIP! Sneakers with invisible wedges are HOT (Isabel Marant started with this shape and there are a lot of cheaper copies around now). So if you’re not that tall and you want to wear sneakers, it’s best to go with these ones. You’ll look taller, and slimmer. But watch out, it can also look very plump. Think about what you’re going to wear it with. It looks best under a skinny jeans! Personally I am going to skip this trend!


1 year ago…

It’s been a year today… Amy Winehouse passed away. And she’s still in my mind… great music and loved her style.

Gok Wan’s bra advice…

On reveal.co.uk: Gok Wan gives bra advice! And what should every woman have in her underwear collection? “Two bras, definitely a minimum of two bras! One body, one slip, one pair of French knickers, one G-string or thong for the right dress. Control underwear throughout. And a gorgeous smile!” I must say: I love the prints on the shape wear from Gok for simplybe.co.uk


Style has no age, color, race…

Lanvin Features 82-Year-Old Jacquie Tajah Murdock in Fall/Winter Campaign 2012/13
Jacquie told advancedstyle: “This campaign is a dream come true. I grew up in Harlem always wanting to be a model, but in my day there were very little opportunities for women of color to work in fashion. At 18 I went from agent to agent looking for jobs, even as a hand model. I have finally made it and I will never give up. Hopefully some day I will get to Paris!”
Nice that Lanvin shows different kind of models, age, color, race… only SIZE is missing. Maybe next season?

Photographer for this campaign is Steven Meisel.
