Mindy Kaling Loves…Bright Colours

Mindy Kaling Loves Bright Colours

Mindy Kaling is the kind of girl we all want to be BFFs with; I do personally because of her humour, charm and quick wit, but also because she shares my love for colour.

While promoting the new season of ‘The Mindy Project’ she made quite a splash colour-wise, opting for preppy, playful pieces in standout hues.

Smart and sexy at the SXSW Film and Music Festival, who could miss her wearing this bold-hued Trina Turk top-and-trouser set, which she styled with mauve heels and a gorgeous statement necklace?

She sparkled while on her way to Jimmy Kimmel wearing a Moods of Norway emerald-green tank top paired with lemon-hued pants, adding blue sandals and Jennifer Meyer jewels for a touch more bling.

While purple might be the colour we crave when fall comes around, the light shade and polka dots give this SiriusXM look a bright and breezy feel. The actress worked the colour in several shades from head-to-toe, including a magenta lip.

Which look do you favour? I have to go with the Kimmel look.

I just love the way the green and yellow complement each other.

Diane Kruger Loves Her…Jil Sander ‘JIL’ Bag

Diane Kruger Shop Her Look3

Diane Kruger’s off-duty style has one common feature: her white Jil Sander ‘JIL’ bag.

The pure, sophisticated design is simple, yet it packs a punch as a powerful statement bag.

Featuring flat brass hardware, a shoulder strap, soft leather lining and hand-painted edges, and crafted in signature French box calf for its high quality and smooth surface, the German actress was recently spotted carrying the bag with her MiH ‘The Patch’ pocket dress as well as on three other occasions which all, coincidentally, featured denim.

Hopefully she’s not a klutz like me, who ends up getting denim dye all over her bag; that’s how I ruined my canvas Celine ‘Boston’ bag.

Lady Gaga Loves Saint Laurent

Lady Gaga Loves Saint Laurent

Lady Gaga is back in action promoting her new single, ‘Applause,’ and so, too, is her make-you-look style. In just the past few days, the chameleonic, newly blondish entertainer has made nearly too many costume (and beauty) changes to count.

Even so, Mother Monster could not hide her recent sartorial love fest with Saint Laurent, which found her in four looks from the label last week. Creative director Hedi Slimane has imparted grunge appeal and a tough edge to the collections, also relying on one of his top muses: music. It’s no wonder the songstress is going gaga for his dark, moody entrances.

She kicked off her Saint Laurent streak with a black tuxedo jacket with metal piping, paired with a crepe de chine blouse and leather-and-silk georgette pleated skirt. It could all seem a bit safe for the likes of Lady Gaga, but towering platform boots, splattered multicolour ‘Applause’ makeup and wet-look hair break the rules enough.

Again not washing off the face paint, the singer wore a toned-down black silk gown with lace sleeves from the Spring 2013 collection.

She left her newfound restraint at home for her third Saint Laurent outing. Showing that her standard shock factor is still in order, her Fall 2013 crystal, sheer lace jumpsuit is the body-bearing, boundaries-pushing outrageousness that has Gaga branded all over it. An Alexander McQueen studded ‘Heroine’ bag proved a worthy companion, even if no one was looking at it. You may remember that Kate Moss wore a slightly more conservative rendition of the glittery catsuit.

Finishing out her Saint Laurent style file, she put on a Pre-Fall 2013 black leather studded tube dress with black ‘Janis’ lace-up boots, finished off with long, straight locks and funky, circular shades.

Do you like Lady Gaga’s semi-goth, raven-haired run last week?

Jennifer Lopez Loves…The Blonds

Jennifer Lopez Loves The Blonds

Jennifer Lopez is having a blond moment. The Latin songstress has lately been having even more fun, turning to The Blonds for her glittery, over-the-top stage statements. Design duo David and Phillipe Blond have an obsession with outrageous flair, so it’s no surprise that their flashy, splashy custom looks are taking Jenny way outside the block.

First up, J. Lo played the ultimate lady in red while performing at the Billboard Music Awards back in May in Las Vegas, Nevada. With a shiny leotard, fuzzy flamenco sleeves and seriously studded thigh-high boots, all manifested in that hot crimson hue, it doesn’t get more fierce than this. She also brought The Blonds to ‘Britain’s Got Talent,’ turning up the talent-show heat while there.

Cooling off from her sizzling, fire-engine red run, Jennifer recently made an embellished entrance during her British Summer Time performance at London’s Hyde Park Festival. She strutted her stuff in a silvery, patterned contraption that was fully decked out in piles of chain at the shoulders and on the waist-cinching belt. Fishnet tights and black lace-up booties completed the glam-grunge edge.

Lucky look number three was yet another high-wattage bodysuit, this time an intense, fiery number that was dripping in gold chains, which she just flaunted a few weeks ago during the Premios Juventud 2013 in Miami, Florida. Nude, sparkling tights and shoe-boots created an even sexier, curve-bearing spin on her sultry stage appeal.

Are J. Lo’s shades of ‘Blond’ on the platinum order, or too over-processed?
