Solange Knowles for Glamour France July 2012

I have been excited to learn that many of you are crushing on Solange Knowles’ style too.

She showcases her quirky and individual style for Glamour France for their July 2012 issue.

The DJ rocks her signature larger-than-life afro in her 80s-influenced editorial where we also get to see her wearing a Louis Vuitton scarf as a turban.

In her editorial we see Solange sports statement sunglasses, a tailored Just Cavalli blazer, a tie-dye Ralph Lauren denim jacket, a printed DVF jumpsuit, a Diesel Black Gold metallic jacket, the pink Acne dress I have been crushing on for a long while, a paisley-print Jil Sander skirt, and many other brightly coloured pieces. A boombox is also added into the mix.

Check out the amazing editorial below.

Here are some translated extracts from her interview.

On the secret to her style: [My style is] very eclectic as I like to take risks, but I always cling to glamourous touches and classic details. I’m not necessarily inspired by magazines or fashion. I surf a lot on blogs and find it cool to see real style from real people. My travels also influence me. I always take lots of pictures, and then inject all those inspirations into my wardrobe, my home decor, or my makeup. And we can’t forget the icons: Diana Ross, Erykah Badu, Bjork, and Lauryn Hill.

Eva Longoria In Versus – 52nd Monte Carlo TV Festival – ‘Desperate Housewives’ Photocall

Last month the season finale for last ever Desperate Housewives episode was shown in the US.

With that in mind, US readers may find it strange that Eva Longoria is still promoting the TV series during the 52nd Monte Carlo TV Festival in Monaco earlier today.

Personally I’m just happy to see a lovely summery look on the red carpet for a refreshing change.

Sporting her third look in two days, Eva wore a Versus Spring 2012 dress.

Her seam foam green dress with a tri-colour print and two front black zippers details was teamed with yet another pair of Brian Atwood pumps.

Just how many does this woman own? 100?

The fuchsia pink ‘Zenith Lux’ ankle strap pumps with a jewel heel detail were the perfect way to add an extra punch to her look.

A quiffed ponytail and studded earrings completed her look.

Celebrities Love…Givenchy Sandals

Summer is just beginning, but it seems as though we already have our shoe of the season.

Celebrities everywhere have been spotted wearing strappy Givenchy sandals.

Diane Kruger first sported the heels last month at the Cannes Film Festival, pairing the simple white heels with a girly coral Calvin Klein dress.

Proving their astonishing versatility, Cassie wore the very same pair the next day with a wildly different look.

Decked out in an exotic printed Salvatore Ferragamo jumpsuit, the simple sandals are a perfect balance to the bold look.

Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Connelly and Amanda Seyfried have all recently worn the sandals on the red carpet, while Fergie took the shoes in a casual direction for a flight to LAX wearing a sporty Alexander Wang ensemble.

In both black and white, these two-strap heels are the perfect subtle shoes to match pretty much any outfit.

Metallic accents give off a luxe feel, while the minimal coverage complements each ensemble without overpowering.

We expect to see many more Givenchy sandals stomp down the carpet in the coming months.

You can buy these Givenchy in black sandals from Selfridges.

Eva Longoria In Vivienne Westwood – 52nd Monte Carlo Television Festival

Eva Longoria arrived at Nice Airport yesterday headed to Monte Carlo, Monaco.

She wore a beautiful summery look which included a yellow collarless blazer, a simple white silk top and white jeans.

She accessorized with Brian Atwood ‘Encanta’ sandals, a tan Hermes Birkin bag, stylish shades and a white  Hermes belt.

Later that same day she was spotted outside the Hotel de Paris in Monaco, en route to the 52nd Monte Carlo Television Festival.

The actress, who has been wearing Victoria Beckham almost exclusively for the last few outings, wore a Vivienne Westwood dress on this occasion.

Her crisp white dress with puffy (overwhelming) sleeves was styled with black ‘Zenith Lux’ ankle-strap heels from her favourite shoe designer Brian Atwood.

The only things I like here are her dress, hair and makeup.

Her choice of accessories with this white dress is baffling to say the least.

I much prefer the airport look.
