Kate Moss was caught on vacation/The Kills tour in St. Tropez with daughter Lila Grace. She was wearing a pair of side lace Balmain leather shorts from a few seasons ago. It seems a little hot to be wearing a pair of leather shorts during the summer, especially in St. Tropez.
Ohh…it must be so nice to be at the beach. The weather here is killer. It has been so hot the past few days here in California. It just seems like it would be so lovely. You can click here to purchase Balmain at Net-A-Porter.

Charlize Theron was spotted after having lunch in Hollywood, California early last month. I wonder what took
so long for Charlize to get caught in some Balmain? She was wearing a pair of the cropped black motorcycle jeans from the Spring 2011 collection. I like that she kept the vibe of the Spring 2011 show in her look here. The studded Louboutin flats are just amazing. Those are just some really amazing shoes.
I cannot wait for the new lower priced Balmain line to be available. I’m sure that it will have some amazing jeans. I just hope that it is actually affordable in the sense that it is like Current/Elliott and J Brand. But I’m sure that the brand will still sell out quickly like the higher-end one.
Erin Wasson did a spread for the June 2011 issue of Elle France. Se was styled in casual, country woodman looks. She wore a pair of the pinned and stapled denim shorts by Balmain. She also donned a pair of Zadig and Voltaire sequined shorts and some really cool quilted leather shorts.
I think Erin has some great style. Her jewelry line is great too. I have a few pieces from her jewelry line that are staples for everyday. Sometimes I wonder if she styles herself in some of her shoots. They are usually casual in most of them. You can check out the looks below.
Keeping with the thoughts of using music as the inspiration, Olivier Rousteing chose Elvis in Vegas for the Balmain Resort collection. He chose Kasia Stuss to be the model for his first jab at womenswear since gaining the title of Creative Director.
The collection had a huge amount of detail put into it. Looking at the dresses it is just impeccable how much is in it. For example, the mini dress with the tribal print. That whole print has been embroidered on the dress itself. Just amazing.
One thing that I do have to say is that, I get McQueen a lot looking through the collection. With all the gold combined with the prints and white…it is just reminiscent of the fashion house. Though with that aside, the collection is still great. I love that they did trouser cuts this season. Those would have to be my favorite. They feature ankle zips and hidden pocket zippers at the hip. Olivier also brought back the leather hot pants with the multiple hip zippers, but cleaned them up for this collection. A new feature this season is also in the motorcycle jeans. The pleating on those are cut different and placed different than what is usual for Balmain. The line also features a pink pair and an amazing shirt with suede panels (image 15).
