I said before that the waxed trend wasn’t just for the ladies and of course Russell Brand would be one of the first men to be spotted in it. He was spotted at LAX Airport after being in New York filming his new movie Arthur for a couple months.
His jeans didn’t just have the trend of the moment but also another, distressed. I’ve always wondered what waxed denim would look like distressed. I actually don’t think it is that bad. Though I wouldn’t wear it myself. But they suit Russell’s style perfectly, I think he is the only one that can probably pull these off. What do you readers think of the waxed trend? Will you guys be jumping on it next season? Will you men be wearing them also?
Alexis Bledel looked gorgeous as she attended the Mulberry Spring/Summer 2011 collection for New York Fashion week. Mulberry also is releasing a collection of handbags for Target in October. The line previewed on Gilt Groupe last month and sold out in minutes! I can’t wait to see the full line at Target.
I think Alexis doesn’t get enough recognition for as beautiful and fashionable as she is! To the show’s preview, she wore dark wash jeans, a glittery tee and blazer. Her jeans are by MiH. You can buy MiH jeans at Boutiquetoyou.com.
Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria was seen arriving at her restaurant Beso in Los Angeles, California last night. I still forget that she actually owns this place! It’s nice she visits it all the time too. Eva looked very fresh and casual in her outfit, she chose a pair of J Brand Houlihan cargo pants with sandals, a sweater and a light grey snood.
I heard Eva has received the Medallion of Excellence from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute for her philanthropy and work in the Hispanic community. Congratulations! It does seem like the Houlihan hype is dying down a lot now, I’m definitely going to be wearing my cargos through Fall and Winter though! Buy these pants at Singer22 for $230 or you can buy these pants at Boutique to You for $230. You can read my review of these pants by clicking here.
G-Star’s collection also had many great pieces for the women. They had a variety of shorts, jeans, jackets and jumpsuits. There was even an evening dress, which they call the “Kalahari Dress.” It has a raw denim bodice with a very voluminous free-flowing bottom. The tailoring was amazing, especially on the structured denim pieces like the vest and jackets. I also thought the washes were great. They had some really amazing worn-in light washes. Something that I don’t usually associate with them.
Overall, I think this collection is going to be a big hit. I see the shorts in particular being a big one, the jacket above looks like it will be a favorite as well. I can see it on celebrities such as Liv Tyler and Jessica Alba. I also really liked the styling. It looks like it was inspired by G-Star fan, Gwen Stefani. I can see her rocking many of these pieces, especially the parachute pants and their boyfriend jeans. You can check out the women’s denim looks below from the desert inspired G-Star Raw collection.
