Look Of The Day: Chanel Iman

Happy Monday Readers, I’m back with another “Look Of The Day”. I’m changing things up a little since I’ve only given you my favorite celeb looks. Chanel Iman (my favorite model by the way) was recently featured in Vogue China for a beautiful high fashion spread. We all know Chanel is a familiar face of the Vogue pages but with this spread we see a more sophisticated Chanel. Less glam more chic! Thats what I like to call it, although the two goes hand in hand. I love the familar colors in this ensemble…When June Ambrose created “Effortless Style” this is probably what she had in mind. With the current humid temperatures style addicts have done a closet overload with loose/free staples. Chanel looks so CHIC in this shot… “The Chic Report” approves.

Check out Chanel Iman in Vogue China.

She will also be doing a meet and greet tomorrow 12noon – 1pm at the Victoria Secret in SOHO.

Look Of The Day: Fabolous

Hi Readers, Happy St Patricks Day! Its that time again, so I’m here to post my favorite celeb “Look Of The Day”. It was really difficult this time around so I decided to think outside of the box for a bit. I’ve never featured a male celebrity for my “Look Of The Day” post so I thought that Fab would be the best fit since hisnew photoshoot with Signature Magazine. There were two looks which I spotted on theybf.com but this one won me over. I just felt the whole “hip-hop” look was too i come from the hood and now i have new clothes  overrated until I skipped under the cut and saw this pic. Love it! I appreciate a rapper or any hip hop artist who is clean, well groomed and still execute their art without fullfilling the sterotypes. Fab is wearing a vertical strip button down under a colared blazer, that paired with black slacks and a neat pair of tux topped with a clear framed pair of shades to add elegence.

Chanel Iman: Spanish Vogue

Yet another Vogue appearance for Chanel Iman which is my favorite runway and editorial model of this time. I recently posted a blog on Chanel in Vogue Germany’s “Minnie in Wonderland” shoot where the the young model starlet channelled her inner Minnie with some fun sultry shots. I must say that Chanel looks uber fab in this shoot with fun, adorable staples in an array of rich hue colored pattern pieces glammed up with bold jewelry to add edge. Chanel is at the peak of her modelling career and I’m super excited for where her career is heading.
Stay Chic Chanel!

Curves Ahead: The Size Issue

She’s gorgeous, she’s glamorous, she’s sexy but the only obstacles in her way of success are the socially-acceptable prejudices that a curvy woman isn’t as industrial as a size “barely” 0 model. Even with a toned body, perfect posture, skin, and unique features, it is still so difficult for a plus size/curvy model to find work in this industry. “Who wants to see a fat women on the cover of a magazine” the very words of papa fashion Karl Lagerfield and I totally agree. So now show me the jobs for the ladies above size 2 with flawless bodies, a little meat on their bones and is uber talented ready and willing to rock the spreads and stand on the forefront of our ad campaigns?; Because last I checked “fat” and “curvy” are two different aspects of size. In my opinion size doesn’t matter and if the selection of clothing is as versatile as designers claim then fashion can flatter a multiple of figures. So with the recent raves and rants of plus size models do you really think the demand for curvy girls in the industry is improving? Well V magazine is taking a stand and will be featuring plus size models in their latest issue hitting stands later this month. Photographed by Solve Sundsbo, the models Candice Huffine, Marquita Pring, Michelle Olson, Tara Lynn, and Kasia P., Designers Gucci and Guess. An entire issue devoted to curvy women…Now isn’t that interesting? Thoughts? Comment!

Vogue Jan 2010: Already Famous

Browsing through the January issue of American Vogue this spread caught my attention (so did every other shoot in the magazine).Creative genius Steven Meisel, and gifted Grace Coddington (didnt you watch the September Issue???) are the master minds behind this rock/roll inspired shoot ft our favorite designers. I heart Vogue!
