Peace Love & Sneaks: Air Jordan V “Cool Greys”

2011 is going to be a big year for Jordan Brand releases.  One of those releases will be this all new Light Graphite / White-Wolf Grey based Air Jordan V Retro 5’s pictured above, which has also been refereed to as the “Cool Greys”.  I’m a huge fan of the 5′s, and trust me as a female, these sneakers are DOPE!! They would go perfect in my closet. The colors will go great with most of my wardrobe, being that the color grey is one of my favorite colors to wear. I feel comfortable when I wear this color. It just suits me you know?

We now have exclusive detail images of what the sneaker looks like at every angle. A soft light grey textured nubuck covers the upper, while hits of wolf grey contrast cleanly throughout the upper. A look inside reveals a white sock liner, as well as a burgundy insole. Down below sits an icy translucent outsole, always a nice touch on any grey-based Air Jordan. Many have mentioned these to be apart of the “Bin 23 Collection”, however there is no “Bin 23” branding anywhere on these.

Below you will see more pictures of the sneaker in full detail courtesy of Modern-Notoriety (in case you couldn’t already tell from their tagged photos…LOL).

Look out Lady Gaga, there’s another musician rocking out in custom-made Giorgio Armani outfits—Alicia Keys! The soulful songstress, who was dressed in head-to-toe Armani for her 2008 As I Am tour, will rock four dazzling, one-of-a-kind costumes from the Italian designer for her current tour, The Element of Freedom. The first look, a sparkling crocodile-printed military jacket, features crystals and sequins, and is paired with silk leggings and tone-on-tone Swarovski crystals. Other highlights include a one-shoulder silk top with embroidery detailing and crystal-encrusted leather boots. A sexy one-shouldered silk chiffon gown in dark gray–paired with black sandals–completes the third look, while a flirty mini-dress with strong shoulders and cascade ruffles finishes off the assortment. With so many daring looks for her latest tour, we cannot wait to see Alicia work them in concert! For more information on her tour dates, check out AliciaKeys.com.

All On The Cover: Rihanna Covers W

Rihanna Covers ‘W Magazine’ February 2010

MAGAZINE: W
NEWSTANDS: February 2010
MODELS: Rihanna
PHOTOGRAPHER: Craig McDean, styled by Lori Goldstein

WEBSITE: www.WMagazine.com
NOTES: Pop Princess proves looking hot is the best revenge! 

As her fourth album, Rated R, receives accolades and she gets ready to kick off her international tour, Rihanna is only getting hotter. Here, she sizzles in Gucci’s cotton dress with sexy cut-outs on the February 2010 cover of W Magazine, as captured by Craig McDean and styled by Lori Goldstein. Less than a year ago Rihanna was virtually in hiding. But now, with a hit record and a new sense of bravery, she’s ready to show the world who she really is.

Here are some highlights from her interview. 

On the best part of her day: “When I’m with my glam team getting my hair and makeup done—we talk so much s—!”

On her fashion sense: “My stylist Mariel Haenn and I always try to do something sexy but never too girly—we always try to put a little toughness in there.” 

On never once wishing herself back in Barbados, living a quiet life: “Oh no, I never fantasize about that. Because if I were back there, I know I’d be fantasizing about all this.”

All On The Cover: Jennifer Lopez Covers Elle US

MAGAZINE: ELLE
NEWSTANDS: February 2010
MODELS: Jennifer Lopez
PHOTOGRAPHER: Tom Munro, styled by Joe Zee

WEBSITE: www.elle.com
NOTES: Jennifer Lopez is soooo back!

American singer and actress Jennifer Lopez graces the cover page of fashion magazine Elle US for the month of February 2010. J-Lo talks about on motherhood, heartbreak, and the future of her career, and revealed that she never considered in vitro fertilization because she’s a traditional woman. 

Here are some highlights from her interview. 

On why she never considered in vitro fertilization, like her character in The Back-Up Plan: “When it comes to family and relationships, I’m quite traditional. Just because of the way I was raised. And I also believe in God and I have a lot of faith in that, so I just felt like you don’t mess with things like that. And I guess deep down I really felt like either this is not going to happen for me or it is. You know what I mean? And if it is, it will. And if it’s not, it’s not going to.”

On the merit of her romantic comedies:  “I think Maid in Manhattan and Monster-in-Law are very layered movies. And that’s why they’re so successful. People don’t like shitty romantic comedies. Nothing that’s shitty is going to make $100 million.” 

On hosting a dinner for Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor: “She didn’t realize what she was going to symbolize. And it’s always scary to be thrown into it–that’s what I felt like when I did Selena. You’re thrown out there, and all of a sudden you’re not anonymous. You are now known. And that’s a lot to handle. It’s scary at first. Then you get used to it. And so she was in that moment of her life where it’s just like, What the hell? Everybody’s clapping for me. People are writing about me, talking about me, I’m on TV. She was just a judge in New York.”

On competing with twenty-something pop idols as a 40-year-old mom: “This is what I do—what, because I have kids and a husband now I’m not supposed to be me? I’m a more heightened me if anything. Hyper J.Lo. Everything I wanted before, I want twice as much now. And that doesn’t mean material things; it means to explore more, to think more. Being an artist doesn’t start because you’re 21, and it doesn’t end because you’re 51. You are who you are until the day you die.”

On betrayal: “This is something I haven’t been through once in my life. This is something I’ve been through a few times in my life. Where you really have your eggs in one basket and that breach happens and you know you should go but you’re still in love and you just don’t know what to do. It hits you because it’s not like you’re a cheater, and a liar, and I hate you, and you’re no good, and I’m leaving. It’s not that. It’s like, I’m tormented. Even though you’ve done this and I know it, I still don’t know what to do. I know I should go, but I don’t want to. And that’s why it’s such a fucked-up thing.”

All On The Cover: Kate Winslet Covers Harper’s Bazaar

Harper’s Bazaar August 2009 issue is covered by Oscar winner, Kate Winslet, photographed by Peter Lindbergh in New York City.

That’s not her first pics for this magazine. During her fashion life she has booked more than 5 various Harper’s Bazaar covers. This is her 6th cover girl photosession for this magazine.

On the cover pic she wears a white wool crepe dress, $1,795, by Michael Kors, Chopard earrings. In the pics where Kate is on the tower above NY she wears Ralph Lauren Collection silk dress $8,000, Cartier Bracelet (left), $3,850, Chopard Bracelet (right).

In the interview she speaks about her parents, Oscar winning, about her weight and style.

About her body:

“I’ve heard, ‘Oh, she’s toned and she’s lost weight,’ but I am exactly the same as I’ve always been. The one thing that had to go during awards season was exercise. People would say to me, ‘Oh, come on …’ like I was lying about it!”

“Some may find it hard to believe it, but I don’t care about that stuff.”

About her favorite beauty products:

Renergie is really, really fantastic. Resolution eye cream — excellent for puffiness! Pink Parfait Magic Blush, which I just love … and Absolute Rouge is spectacular. Sam and I went out to the theater one night, and I double kissed everyone and it didn’t come off!” Pause. “Actually, I don’t double kiss. Just one will do, thank you.”

About being Lancome face:

I really thought, me?” she says. Lest she seem disingenuous, she insists, “Seriously. Because I think what you feel like as a teenager never really goes away. If you were teased for being fat or thin or having bad teeth, you’re always insecure about that particular area of yourself. So I’ve never thought of myself as any kind of beauty, iconic or otherwise.”

About growing up:

The growing-up-fast part weirdly happened between the ages of 15 and 22. When everyone was out getting plastered, I didn’t do all of that. I was working. I was doing life. Now that I look back, I feel very lucky. I’ve never taken drugs, never been offered cocaine. And I’ve done a heck of a lot
of traveling: India, Australia, Morocco, New Zealand. You have to rely on your resources when you’re away; you have to think quickly [and] grow up quickly.”

“What do you think?”

All On The Cover: Vanessa Hudgens Covers InStyle Makeover

Vanessa Hudgens strikes a pose on the cover of InStyle’s special makeover issue wearing a Salvatore Ferragamo dress and Tom Binns necklace. 

Check out this interview Vanessa Hudgens did with InStyle to find out about her style icons, hair horrors, and more! 

How has your style changed since you’ve been in the spotlight?
When I was younger I wasn’t into fashion or taking big risks. Then I started paying attention to Nicole Richie and Mary-Kate Olsen and all their different looks. That inspired me. And also you learn about your body; it takes a while to know what looks good on you.

Most important lesson?
I’ve learned that short-short skirts are not the way to go. I went through that phase at 13, so I never need to go there again! I did my Hollister bell-bottom thing; then I couldn’t live without my Frankie B. jeans, little ballet flats, and T-shirts. That was cute, fun and easy.

Does Zac [Efron, Hudgens’s boyfriend] have any opinions about what you wear?
Well, truthfully, I wear what I want. It’s not about a guy, really — no disrespect — I’m just saying that I dress for myself. My style has evolved into something I’m proud of. Of course, I’m still changing and my style will too. That’s the fun of fashion!

The “Bandslam” star looks cute and casual in a Forever 21 tank.

Let me guess: Drawer full of hair tools?
Oh yeah. I’ve got a Chi ceramic flattening iron, four curling irons in different sizes, and at least two blow-dryers. One stays in the suitcase.

So if this Hollywood thing doesn’t work out, you could always be a stylist…
I’m pretty good, but my hair is always better when someone else does it! My arms get tired, and I don’t have the patience.

When you straighten your hair, you look so different.
I know! It’s weird. I’ll walk into a room and my friends don’t recognize me. It’s fun to feel so transformed by changing something so simple.

Have you always had long hair?
I had short hair only once in my life. When I was 7, I cut it myself, which I think every girl does — once. I gave myself a bob and bangs. It was really sad. I looked like I had worms on my head.

Vanessa goes glam in a Emanuel Ungaro silk top.

Any other hair disasters?
I went through a stage where I had burgundy hair, which was frightening. And I had light brown hair with light blond highlights. My friend said it looked like I’d dipped my hair in ashes. It looked so bad.

When it comes to beauty, who do you look up to?
Jennifer Lopez is downright gorgeous. She’s mastered her glow. I got kind of lucky with the glow too. It’s the Filipino in me from my mom, who has got the most amazing skin. I’m crossing my fingers that I’ll take after her.

Is the gym part of your morning routine?
It changes constantly, but recently I’ve been working out with a trainer at home. I’m doing an action movie called “Sucker Punch,” which is going to be a lot of hard work, so I have to be ready for it. We do weights and a lot of cardio. She makes me run up and down my stairs 10 times. I have a three-story house, so it’s definitely tiring.
