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.
Whitney Port was seen running some errands and paying a parking meter while wearing a pair of M2F Brand Denim jeans. Whitney chose the M2F Tigerlily orange skinny jeans for the day. Since I found out about the brand a while ago, I have been obsessed with the pastel shades they have on offer! I love the pink pair especially. We have done a post on the brand before, including an interview which you can see here.
M2F Brand Denim introduces eco-friendly, authentic, vintage denim available in an unlimited palette of colors. The spring collection consists of four buttery-soft, slim-fit stretch denim styles: straight leg, classic bootcut, skinny leg and a mini short. Together, these dynamic breakthroughs enabled the company to develop a different kind of denim brand, one committed to preserving the environment and the avant-garde. The color palette for spring includes beautiful pastel shades of yellow, orange, pink, blue, cream, green and lavender. M2F Brand Denims is available at E Street Denim, Fred Segal, Planet Blue, National Jean Company, Sofia and other fine specialty boutiques nationwide. The Skinny by M2F Brand Denims retails for $130.00 and is available at www.planetblue.com. Since they are stocked at Planet Blue, I am wondering if we will see Ashley Tisdale in a pair!
