Leave it to Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence to pick Odeon restaurant for her interview. The fries are the best there at the infamous Tribeca haunt notorious for its late night dinner scene in the 90s.
Whats HOT in the September issue besides a Jimmy Choo ad featuring Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lawrence photographed by Mario Testino, one piece wonders feature on the comeback of the one-piece jumpsuit, Ruzwana Bashir globe trotts all over the world with her travel blog, Elder Statesman designer ( first seen in JCrew catalogue) talks family and design, and Adam Driver gets Supermodel with a fashion feature with Daria Werbowy, and Ragged glory gets hippie grunge. Models get their names in print, and ads get better and better.
My favorite all time page is of course, LAST LOOK, which features a waterproof tweed bag of a mere, $4.495.
Happy end of August.
In order to look like a European, you have to shop like a European. And that means pick key items that will be smoking hot from September all the way until next March. My advice is to get a uniform or a vision of an icon in your head, and stick with it every day to have fun with fashion, and not be afraid.
This Fall 2013, a few of my favorite things are biker and moll inspired. As I was walking up Madison Avenue I started to dream, If I could have a few key items this season what would they be. Heres my list: cape coat, black dress, thigh high boots, chic bracelets, statement ring, silk jogging pants, and an awesome BALLY tote, and a fun biker hat.
I’m handbag obsessed and I really love the Hermes reversible tote for its understated, yet it has two side so you can change it up from day to night.
I also love the BALLY “DANA” which is made of metal lead colored python and chocolate calf. This looks like you are carrying a piece of art. I wore mine with balck and white and a sky high heel with green for a more sophisticated look, I couldn’t wait to wear it!
Im also obsessed with mommy to be Margherita Missoni’s line of bags she created for Missoni. I love the Missoni fabric handbag for its pairs great with fall’s rich black, and I’m also a Missoni soldier and have been in love with the brand and the color schemes.
Another accessory I love for Fall is the Chloe enamel bracelet. Its the sweet and charming moment while you are walking to work in your cape coat.
Speaking of amazing jewelry, Katy Rodriguez has and incredible line of jewelry with bold stones to pair with the satin jogger trouser by Vince, or even the split neck sheer trim dress I’m dying over ( plus their cashmere sweaters are a great price and they come in yummy white, baby grey, and black.)
And for those shoe obsessed lovers, Im literally dying over the two toned Jimmy Choo yellow and black sky high pumps. They are hot sexy and make a statement since well all be wearing all black this fall.
And if you are an H&M enthusiast like I am, get your closet ready for thigh high boots and a leather cap for this season is hot, sexy, and cool. Pair your oversized angora sweaters with leather leggings and thigh high boots, and a biker hat ( try harley davidson if you want to be authentic), and you can go anywhere anytime. Nice girls are sweet, but bad girls go everywhere at H&M.
Philip Lim thigh high boots are making me creasy for this season. They modernize the black dress and make leather leggings uber HOT. I also love the teeshirt over the oversized shirt.
And for skirt lengths, go knee length. Personally, the jean skirt can be just as hot as any knee length. Add a tight motorcycle jacket, and you are ready for anything.
The one thing I’m reminded of throughout the holiday season is to stand up for those who are less fortunate.
Since the age of 15, I’ve volunteered at the Salvation Army, and today, I’m lucky enough to work with organizations like the Food Bank for New York City, Generosity Water and MSG’s Garden of Dreams Foundation.
Which is why, this holiday season, I find myself dressing in an understated yet chic way. I do this to show thanks to all of the local heroes who go beyond their comfort zone to do something special for those less fortunate. Like Angelina Jolie, I’ve recently opted for suits because they embody sophistication. I’m loving dark blue and white versions by Rogan, chic Chloe tops and ’50s-inspired Marc Jacobs sweaters.
For this year’s Holiday Rock & Roll Bash, hosted by James Dolan of Cablevision (amNewYork’s parent company), not only was $1.7 million raised for the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, but the party drew an amazing crowd with Jim at the helm of his band, JD & the Straight Shot. This week, I also took a group of children from the Garden of Dreams Foundation to see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, and it was a delight to watch them enjoy the show.
And for those who love fashion and philanthropy (my favorite combo), I recently put a pair of worn-once Jimmy Choos up for auction on eBay, with 100% of the profits being donated to Generosity Water to provide clean water wells in Ghana.
I wore these Jimmy Choo’s to the FIFi awards and they stole the show. At 4 inches, even Fergie loved them. They only been worn once and 100% proceeds from the shoes are going to my Generosity account to build a clean water well in Ghana.
Check them out on my ebay account.
Help me help others. Love, Kelly
Sunglass shopping is made easier at Solstice. Lets be honest, it’s a one stop shop and you can get everything from Tom Ford to Jimmy Choo, even Ray Ban. After I met Kellan Lutz, who grabbed me so tight I felt like the world was going to see my Victoria Secret boyshorts, I immediately found a cool pair of Jimmy Choo retro glasses. I kind of regret the Carerra’s. Thank you Kellan and Solstice for a fun event.
