Halle Berry takes a ride on the back of boyfriend Olivier Martinez’s motorcycle. The pair sped off together after grabbing lunch at Pizzicotto in Brentwood, CA. Although Halle has found herself engaged in a custody battle over daughter Nahla, she recently said, “I hope she’s proud of me. I’m sure she won’t like everything I’ve done, but I hope she will appreciate that I dared to be myself and always did what I believed in. I hope those are qualities that I pass on to her.”
Halle wore her Black Orchid jeans, a pink jacket and black motorcycle boots. I love how if you look back at photos of her wearing these jeans, you can see them gradually getting more worn in. I think they have worn really well! You can buy Black Orchid jeans at Singer22.com.

Nudie recently did a pop-up shop in Seattle, Washington at Deli Seattle. Inside the shop, was the theme “Meat Locker.” The interior was kept minimal, just like an actual meat locker. There were chains, steel tables, and concrete floor. There were also some unique detail that was placed on the floor, a painting of dripping blood going down a drain. I think it is a unique one, that some how worked because of the theme. Also the event showcased work by Seattle artist Justin Kane Elder and a back mural by Frankie Juarez.
Now for the denim, they showcased pairs containing hard worn washes, bleached down shades and countless variations of deep blue tone. Nudie also showed styles from their shirt line including music inspired tees and shirts developed in stripes, checks and twills. You can check out images of the pop-up shop below.
Colin Farrell was not too pleased to see the paparazzi as he was snapped filling his car with gas at the station in Los Feliz, California. I heard rumours that Colin and Rihanna have been close friends for a while after meeting on the Graham Norton Show over here in England. He’s reportedly taking her to Ireland to meet his family!
Colin was wearing a brand of jeans that we don’t often see on the celebs anymore, Rock & Republic. He chose a very understated pair with dark blue R’s with a slim fitting dark wash. They fit him really well and I think it’s time we saw some more celebs rocking the brand, I do miss seeing them out and about! You can buy both men’s and women’s Rock & Republic jeans on their website here.
Chanel has joined the Rock trend and has gone grunge this season. I’ve noticed though…Karl is getting very dark with his designs lately. Towards the end of the past spring season the looks got very dark and somber, in both color and vibe. Also, in the Fall Couture 2010, the models walked down with perfectly styled disheveled hair, if that makes sense. Something that I know Coco Chanel probably won’t approve of, but it is Karl’s collection now and Coco’s soul is still present in each of the looks. Whether it be made distressed, in denim, tweed, or not, I think Coco should be proud of what he has built.
Karl Lagerfeld sent down many of the looks distressed, from the jeans to the jackets, all covered with moth-holes. The jeans are also a lot more flattering, I think, this season. Some were super tight, legging styles and others kept baggy. One thing that I love about the jeans this season is that they mock the look of burnt-out suede. One thing that I did dislike was the skirts over the jeans. I hope that is one trend that will never comeback. Overall, I think this would have to be one of my favorite Chanel collections due to the more relaxed vibe, rather than pristine chic that is usually shown. The other favorite would have to be the Fall 2010 Couture show. You can check out some of the looks below.
