Kurt Geiger’s Starheel Supers

Yesterday afternoon I was at Kurt Geiger HQ to check out their Fall 2012 offerings.

The part of the studio which caught my eye the most was the Kurt Geiger Starheel Supers collection.

With ‘The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman’ and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ currently in cinemas, this couldn’t be a more apt time to release a superhero collection.

Each shoe has a special power.

Esme: Has the power platform with inhuman leg lengthening abilities for your sexiest silhouette imaginable

Iris: Paints the pavement as you fly skyscraper high over the rainbow

Elena’s alter-ego is downtime guardian of your universe, aka. the fierce flat

Elektra: Your chariot awaits with the wonder-wedge and need-for-speed go-faster spikes

Eris: Don’t be fooled by the playful peek-a-boo peep toe. This platform is your retroactive rocket shooting studs

Yesterday evening blogger Bip Ling arrived at the Warner Music Group Pre-Olympics Party in the Southern Tanks Gallery at the Tate Modern in London pairing her Kurt Geiger ‘Iris’ tri-colour slingbacks with an uber-cute blue-and-yellow mini mod dress.

Which super power do you wish to possess?

Rita Ora For ASOS September 2012

British singer Rita Ora covers the September issue of ASOS magazine wearing a bespoke bomber jacket designed by ASOS with an ASOS patchwork shirt.

Despite being dubbed “The Next Rihanna” by music insiders and “Fashion’s Next Big Thing” Rita seems to be taking things in her stride by not getting caught up in the hype.

The 21-year-old singer-songwriter shared that she would rather rock her collection of Air Jordans over stilettos any day of the week.

As you would expect, the editorial – shot by Tyrone Lebon – sees Rita wearing a captivating mix of sassy, sweet and edgy pieces with plenty of studs and spikes.

Should we be worried that Rita quotes her style crush as Kanye West?

See more extracts from her interview below.

On her favorite designer: “I’m really into Ashley Williams. She’s British, so young and fresh.” Read More…

Jessica Alba In Narciso Rodriguez – Narciso Rodriguez Fall 2012 Shoe Collection Luncheon

Jessica Alba was spotted on her way to co-host a luncheon at Fred’s at Barney’s New York, to celebrate the launch of the Narciso Rodriguez Fall 2012 shoe collection yesterday afternoon in New York City.

The actress, of course, wore a dress from the designer’s latest Resort 2013 collection.

Her sexy, yet chic and event-appropriate white dress with pink, black, red and taupe stripes was styled with blue Thierry Lasry sunglasses, black-and-white Narciso Rodriguez D’orsay pumps from the Fall 2012 collection and a black Narciso Rodriguez shoulder bag.

Jessica has worn many great looks this week, but this is by far the best.

She always glows in Narciso Rodriguez.

A simple chignon and rouge lip colour completed her look.

Victoria Beckham In Victoria, Victoria Beckham – 202 Restaurant

David and Victoria Beckham were spotted leaving the 202 Restaurant in London’s Notting Hill yesterday following David’s meeting with the Prime Minister at No 10 to thrash out plans designed to help starving people across the globe.

Many of you thought Victoria’s Parisian look was too heavy for summer, so I’m sure you will adore her Victoria, Victoria Beckham Fall 2012 dress.

Yes it’s a Fall look, but it’s the most spring-like look we have seen from her since her stunning orange dress from earlier this month.

Apart from her rose-coloured long-sleeved dress with a swan-print ivory collar, I love the styling.

She carried a stone-coloured bag from her own collection, the same way the models do on the runway, plus she added Lanvin ‘Cypher’ wedges – yay.

No pumps, no open-toe boots. Needless to say, I love this look from head-to-toe.

Who Wore Dsquared² Better? Anna Dello Russo or Selena Gomez

We all couldn’t help but notice Selena Gomez stun in her hot-pink fit-n-flare Dsquared² Resort 2013 dress at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards in Universal City, California on Sunday.

However, this wasn’t the first time this flirty little frock made its debut.

Anna Dello Russo was actually the one who spotted the feminine frock first and chose to wear it during Milan Menswear Fashion Week at the Dsquared² fashion show.

Anna paired this scooped neckline and flared skirt design with pink strappy YSL sandals and Olympia Le Tan’s book clutch.

The editor chose Oliver Goldsmith sunglasses to complete her look for a much more dressed-down, casual look than the pop diva.

Selena pulls off this hot-pink mini to a tee, accessorizing with Lana jewelry, star-burst earrings, and cream Herve Leger by Max Azria sandals for a more glamorous appeal on the pink carpet.

While the two both look pretty in pink, I can’t help but think this fit-n-flare number fits the young singer’s style better, plus I prefer her choice of accessories for a glitzier, glammed-up vibe.
