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.

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?

Beyonce Knowles Loves…Her Gucci Bamboo Shopper Jaguar Tote

Beyonce Knowles Loves Her Gucci’s Bamboo Shopper Jaguar Tote

Spotted: A fierce new accessory that makes it easy to walk on the wild side. Gucci’s Fall 2013 large bamboo shopper in gold and black animalier jaguar-printed leather has Beyonce Knowles’ name written all over it.

The songstress first toted the Gucci carryall straight into trendster territory while out in New York City last month, introducing a feline note into her lighthearted Proenza Schouler printed dress and Dolce & Gabbana sandals, all topped off with Topshop porkie hat and quirky Quay Eyeware Australia sunglasses

Beyonce worked her Gucci tote and porkie hat combo again, as she waved to fans while exiting Cafe Nervosa in Toronto, Canada yesterday afternoon.

Opting for yet more print, Bey wore a Dagmar Fall 2013 harem jumpsuit lugging her Longchamp expandable Le Pliage travel bag, while Jay-Z got the easy job of holding the baby.

As for her sunnies, again they were quirky, this time hailing from the House of Holland collection.

Rihanna, Rita Ora and Pixie Geldof have all been spotted wearing these same sunglasses.

Rihanna Loves…Sunglasses

Rihanna's Shade

Sunglasses have a primary use, but more importantly for Rihanna she works them as a cool accessory suggesting power, prestige and mystique.

By covering those green eyes, she makes it easier to pull off a truly cool demeanour.

Here’s a look at a range of shades she’s been throwing at us lately.

Starting with Zanzan ‘Erzulie’ cat-eye sunglasses; the contrasting black-and-white marble-print and tortoiseshell-print frame add some spice to her heavily blinged-out look.

Next up, her Lanvin crystallized snake-trimmed square-cut sunglasses put the B in Bad Girl.

Quirky Opening Ceremony seafoam cat-eye gingham sunglasses with an exaggerated pointed temple were the perfect day-on-the-beach accessory in Poland; and finally, you can’t go wrong with a classic pair of black Rayban Wayfarers.

Beyonce Knowles Loves…Topshop

Beyonce Knowles Loves Topshop

We can always count on Beyoncé Knowles to rock her distinct glamazon edge, as she’s shown during her ‘Mrs. Carter Show World Tour,’ where her tour companions have been high-wattage looks from the likes of Emilio Pucci, Ralph & Russo and Roberto Cavalli.

But when she’s not taking the stage by fashion storm, Bey can just as easily embrace high-street style—whilst still injecting her off-duty entrances with plenty of ‘haute’ appeal.

Her accessible, fast-fashion obsession of the minute? Just call it ‘Love on Topshop.’

While recently whirling about New York City, we’ve seen the songstress play a numbers game with a casual Topshop Number 92 crop tee and denim cutoffs. She’s also channeled her prints-passionate sister, Solange, with a Topshop Aztec crop top and exploded chevron-print tube skirt.

Flaunting her style stripes, Bey took Topshop to the next level at a birthday bash last month for Kanye West, pairing her monochromatic two-piece set—another midriff-baring top and high-waist skirt—with neon-orange pumps, a Kurt Geiger ‘Dash’ rucksack and Karen Walker ´Blue Moon´ sunglasses.

(She’s obviously having a sartorial love affair with the cropped top, too.)

In June, the entertainer also sang a Topshop tune at Kanye’s ‘Yeezus’ listening party with an abstracted daisy-print, side-split coat.

And her high-street streak again showed up with another cool-girl Topshop mini tee, this time a tribal triangle-emblazoned version, worn with cutoffs, a red bandana and tortoiseshell shades.

Sadly, most of these pieces sold-out after Bey had worn them, so check out what’s new at Topshop US and Topshop UK.
