Celebrities Love Miss Wu

Jason Wu’s diffusion line Miss Wu may be only in its second season, but it’s already a hit with celebrities on the red carpet.

The collection may have been aimed at a much younger audience, but as you can see from above, it has a wide appeal.

You can now buy the Fall 2013 collection exclusively from

Celebrities Love…Printed Maxi Skirts

Celebrities Love Printed Maxi Skirts copy

Forget the ‘X’ factor, and make way for the ‘maxi’ factor.

A trend that will never fall short, the printed maxi skirt has breezed back with a vengeance. Boldly patterned versions of the floor-grazing looks are sweeping through the chic set, going to great lengths to prove that minis aren’t the only must for summer.

Model Miranda Kerr recently floored us in an Isabel Marant sidewalk-scraping silhouette, as she floated through New York City with her son, Flynn. Who would have thought sheer, leopard-print could be so cool.

With a more boho bent, Katie Holmes dressed down in a multi-coloured Tsumori Chisato pleated skirt, splashed with an artsy, illustrated print and a zig-zag panel at the waistband. A loose white tee, Coach sunglasses and red Chloé ‘Lauren’ scalloped-edge, ballet flats completed her casual outing.

Singer-starlet Selena Gomez took her look to the max with a hippie-luxe Free People ‘Maracana’ silk skirt with lace detail at the top, paired with a simple black tank. Free People’s distressed, brown ‘Spellbound’ ankle boots and the label’s round ‘Pladium’ metallic-tinted, tortoise sunnies brought some funky festival-inspired flair to her street style. Dolce & Gabbana’s white ‘Sicily’ tote was a sleek finish.

Also skirting the issue, Jessica Alba embraced the longer hemline and the fine print with her off-duty look. Awash in blue-green hues, tempered by a beige jumper, this effortless exit could easily have taken the actress-mom from the playground to a backyard party.

Celebrities Love…Sophia Webster Shoes

Celebrities Love Sophia Webster Shoes

Style-obsessed sole-searchers have found solace with punchy pairs of shoes by Sophia Webster, Nicholas Kirkwood’s protégé, who has us seeing spots with her festive take on footwear.

The trendsetting, young British designer has been churning out smile-inducing looks, such as her ‘Yayoi’ leather and patent dot sandals with metal bead-effect heels. They’re a graphic statement piece, just like visionary artist Yayoi Kusama’s spotted oeuvre, to which they pay tribute.

Last fall, young starlet Chloe Moretz first connected the dots with her black-and-white ‘Yayois,’ proving yet again she’s equal parts fun and fashion-forward—and a style-girl in the making.

Kourtney Kardashian flirted with the spunkier, candy-coloured variety of the sandals, wearing the bright pink, orange and yellow circle cutouts with a sherbet Saunder frock.

Our reigning princess of prints, Solange Knowles, showed that her love of pattern extends to her feet, as she looked spot-on in the monochromatic shoes just last week at Art Basel.

Meanwhile, on Monday, an overalls-clad Rihanna didn’t walk the dotted line. But she did debut her own namesake pair of Sophia Webster’s ‘Riri’ pastel and black leather sandals with a similarly beaded heel. Don’t let the sorbet shades fool you—just like the boundaries-pushing songstress, these edgy, geometric lace-up shoes are equal parts playful and provocative.

Are you ready to step into Sophia’s circle?

Celebrities Love…The Balmain ‘Pierre’ Bag

Celebs Love Balmain Pierre Bag

Meet ‘Pierre’—the plus-one that’s on the arm of all the fashion femmes.

The debut handbag from the house of Balmain, this classy companion is the result of a collaboration between Balmain’s creative director Olivier Rousteing and French jeweler Aurélie Bidermann.

And what an entrance the timeless yet trendy ‘Pierre’ has made, what with its lush suede—in Anthracite Grey, Camel and Cherry colours—its roomy interior, and the edgy faux-ivory tooth that coolly hangs from the handle.

Initially spotted in the stylish hands of Kate Moss, the purse received a few extra perks with her custom monogram and furry Fendi keychain that added some fluff to the front.

Unsurprisingly, Gwen Stefani gravitated towards the crimson version—it’s the perfect match to her poppy-red pout and her rocker-chic standard.

Proving the ‘Pierre’ is literally a model accessory, the bag has also been seen with runway royalty like Miranda Kerr and Rosie Huntington Whiteley, who made the sidewalk her catwalk when she strutted out the camel carryall. Model-cum-actress and fashion-girl Diane Kruger is obviously also a fan, going for the sophisticated shade of grey.

Do you have a crush on ‘Pierre,’ too?

Celebrities Love…Denim Overalls

Celebrities Love Denim Overalls

Overalls: Just call them the comeback kid. This blast-from-the-past may not conjure visions of sartorial splendor. But, like it or not, the denim dungarees are staking another claim on the fashion farm.

Designers like 3.1 Phillip Lim and Isabel Marant, even MM6 Maison Martin Margiela, have recently elevated the lowly one-piece, taking it from fashion outcast to front-row status, with their own unique interpretations.

No longer a relic of the wonky, rebellious 90s, this riff on rural workwear has once again traipsed into the street-style vocabulary—and the closets—of some of today’s hottest starlets.

Keira Knightley recently indulged her inner tomboy in a cool and comfortable look featuring ” target=”_blank”>Citizens of Humanity’s ‘Quincy’ rolled-up overalls and sneakers, worn with the ultimate contradiction—a Chanel quilted, cross-body bag.

Also going for a low-key and luxe mix, Alexa Chung strapped on a simple black denim pair over a plain white tee, to which she added ballet flats and a Louis Vuitton carryall.

Naturally, Selena Gomez served up a sexy edge with her baggy coveralls, flaunting them over a lace bra. With the pants haphazardly rolled at the bottom and accessorized with a gigantic, nubby scarf and an unzipped black tote, this look gave new meaning to sloppy-chic with its trendster appeal.

Love or loathe?


Celebrities Love…Chanel Lego Clutches

Celebrities Love Chanel Logo Clutches

Karl Lagerfeld knows what the fashion kids want, and the designer took us to an ultra-luxe Lego-land with the Chanel logo ‘Lego’ clutch.

The pint-sized Perspex purse debuted on Chanel’s Spring 2013 runway. Now the playful charmer, with its Crayola colours, has become an ‘it’ bag, punching up celeb looks at every turn. After all, the quirky, nostalgic logo clutches may be all fun and games, but they still wield the power of those interlocking double-Cs splashed across the side.

Up-and-coming starlet Hailee Steinfeld showed her style cred by clutching a lemon-drop yellow version at the Chanel Spring 2013 Couture show in Paris earlier this year. Also carrying off that sunny shade, DJ Leigh Lezark used the geometric bag to brighten her block-star dress at the Chanel Tribeca Film Festival Artists Dinner last week.

Taking her monochromatic ensemble to the next level, Diane Kruger recently went for a brick-red variation, worn with the iconic chain-link purse strap. And, just two nights ago, British songstress Rita Ora matched her hot-red lippie to her logo bag, which she crossed over a see-through trench. She completed the white-haute look with embellished, thigh-high Chanel Spring 2013 boots.

Other lovelies who won’t ‘lego’ of this logo clutch? British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley; ‘Vogue Japan’ editrix Anna Dello Russo; and French actress Elodie Bouchez.

Just think of the stylish fort you could build with these luxe Legos…

Celebrities Love…Number Tees

Celebrities Love Number Tees

No longer relegated to the football field, the jersey shirt has moved from the stadium to the style arena. The newest number crunchers on the scene include a group of bold beauties, who are playing their own fashion game with the number tee.

British TV presenter Caroline Flack took her red ’73’ Topshop version on vacation, using an oversized variation as a beach coverup.

Singer Brandy wore a different spin on the athletic Topshop shirt, parading out her double digits as a minidress and adding a pop edge with finger gloves, shoe boots and a blunt fringe bang.

Counting on a lucky 22, Ciara put a sporty edge on her live performance in Atlantic CIty last month with a black jersey paired with skinny jeans and trainers. The songstress also showed us her washboard abs with a second less-is-more approach to numerals. She cut it short with a cropped ‘1991’ sweater from Topshop to which she brought some grunge appeal with ripped denim and rugged work boots.

Does the number-tee trend add up, in your opinion?
