By Elisabeth Edvardsen on January 4th, 2013

If brains are the new sexy for men, curves are the new sexy for women. With the resurgence of 50s fashion, perfect for voluptuous, feminine shapes, it’s great to see more and more women embracing their hips, boobs and bums. Don’t hide under an unflattering oversized jumper. Invest in pencil skirts and wiggle dresses. If you don’t notice a difference in the way you look, be sure men will…

Should you need any more reminding of why you should celebrate your curves, just take a look at these curvaceous celebrities.

Superbowl XLVI: Madonna, Nicki Minaj and more

By Andrea Petrou on February 6th, 2012

It was hardly a glittering star studded red carpet event, but the celebrities who performed and attended last night’s Superbowl XLVI made it an A-list worthy sports event.

Madonna was our celebrity of the night, performing at half time alongside Nicki Minaj. However those hoping to see a little bit of flesh as has become tradition at this event – either purposely or by Janet Jackson accident- would have been disappointed with Madge choosing a short black dress and grey tights to perform.

Nicki Minaj also kept it safe with a patchwork cheerleader style dress and leopard print tights.

Kelly Clarkson added a classic black dress to the performing mix, while over at the stands Meg Ryan went for a leather jacket.

See the gallery below for all the  Superbowl star style. Read the rest of this entry »

Jessica Simpson’s fashion mistakes made her a better designer

By Andrea Petrou on November 21st, 2011

Jessica Simpson’s past fashion mistakes have helped her become a better designer.

The singer and actress cringes when she looks back on some of her previous fashion faux pas but says her mistakes have helped her to create the best clothing possible for her Jessica Simpson line of clothes and shoes.

She explained to People magazine: “There are a lot of things I’ve worn and look back on and think, ‘Oh, my’. When it comes to beauty, I think a big misconception is the tanner you are, the more beautiful you are. It’s not always true. I look back on a lot of pictures where I’m really tan, and I’m like, ‘Whoa!’

“I’m in all those meetings. I know the zipper pulls, I know what you’re going to be purchasing next spring. I know what’s going to be trending. It’s really fun to take all those meetings and try and play great guessing games of what the public’s going to buy.”

Jessica also revealed she hates spending too much money on cosmetic products which is why she has teamed up with skincare expert Nerida Joy to introduce BeautyMint, an affordable line sold on the internet.

The pregnant popstar said: “We go to department stores and we have no idea what these people are telling us. We just know to get the ‘it’ product because it’s working on this A-list celebrity. It’s kind of like you’re spending too much money on something you don’t really know.”

By Andrea Petrou on June 3rd, 2011

Jessica Simpson and Ashlee Simpson are teaming up for a new clothing line.

The singing sisters are to collaborate on a line of tween apparel featuring sportswear, denim and activewear in their first fashion venture together, which will be part of the Jessica Simpson Collection.

Jessica – whose fashion empire is set to be worth an estimated $1 billion this year – told WWD: “Creating a tween apparel collection was a natural extension for the brand. I’m excited to bring my sister, Ashlee, along as co-creative director of this division, because she brings a savvy rocker edge that defines today’s tweens.”?

Ashlee hopes her venture into fashion will be inspirational for young girls wanting to experiment with their personal style.

She said: “My goal as co-creative director will be to design clothes that will help inspire young girls to express their personalities and creativity through fashion.”

Jessica is set to see her empire expand further this year, with new ready-to-wear and career separates lines also planned.

When she launched the collection, she sold just handbags, shoes and boots, but gradually expanded to include watches, clothing, cosmetics, luggage, fragrances and swimwear, which is all sold in major department stores in the US.

Jessica Simpson can’t “top” the wedding of Prince William and Princess Catherine.

By Andrea Petrou on May 24th, 2011

Jessica Simpson doesn’t think she could “top” the wedding of Prince William and Princess Catherine.

The 30-year-old singer – who is engaged to marry former NFL player Eric Johnson – admired what the Duchess of Cambridge wore for her nuptials at London’s Westminster Abbey on April 29, but is not going to compete with her in the style stakes.

She said: “I absolutely adore Kate’s dress. I thought she looked absolutely beautiful, there’s no bride that can top a royal wedding.

“I’m not going to be wearing the same kind of thing, but it will be beautiful in its own right.”

Jessica, who was previously married to singer Nick Lachey, was also praised by her new partner Eric, who added he thought she was “beautiful”.

He told ‘Access Hollywood’: “She’s just a regular, grounded, down to earth person and I like it. Beautiful, beautiful.”

The blonde beauty recently revealed she wanted to lose some weight prior to her big day.

She said: “I have a date – I’m really excited!”

“I am going to dance around my bedroom and hopefully lose some weight – and lift some weights and do what I can!”

Jessica Simpson wants women of all ages to wear her clothes.

By Andrea Petrou on March 28th, 2011

The singer-and-actress – whose fashion empire is set to make $1 billion this year – says the clothes and accessories are aimed at a whole range of females as well as a variety of occasions.

She told WWD: “This will give the consumer something to dress up in, to feel like a lady, to feel sophisticated, yet it has some sort of funk and flair to it. It has a lot of style to it. It’s not your average suit or skirt. It has lots of fun details. We wanted to change things up for the everyday working girl who wants to feel her age. It could be for a girl’s first job, or an internship. She could be in her 20s, 30s, even 40s. My mom would wear it, and she’s over 50.”

Despite her busy career, the 30-year-old beauty says her fashion range will always come first because it has made her a role model.

She said: “It all works together. I really don’t look at myself as just one thing. I’m kind of scattered and like to have my hands in a lot of different projects. It makes me who I am. It’s what defines me. What I wear, what I sing, the songs I write, the projects I choose all have to represent Jessica Simpson.

I wouldn’t take certain jobs if they were to take away from the positive role model that the Jessica Simpson Collection has allowed me to establish.because this is my number-one priority.”

Vanity Fair Oscar 2010 after party trends: Asymmetric necklines

By Andrea Petrou on March 9th, 2010

There were a range of different trends at this year’s Oscars (metallic stood out for us here), but these also carried on into the after parties. We saw short, black and blue, as well as metaliic at many of these parties.

However one trend that really stuck out at the Vanity Fair after party was asymmetric necklines. These were sported by the likes of Victoria Beckham, who wore the same frock to Elton’s event and the Vanity Fair party, Kate Beckinsdale, who looked stunning in an on-trend silver long dress and Jessica Simpson who spice up anotherwise plain black dress with this neckline.

View out gallery to see who else was on-trend with this style.

One way fashion benefits from writers strike? More celebs in the front row

By Andrea Thatcher on January 29th, 2008

Ellen%20Pompeo.jpg

The Grey’s Anatomy stars seem to have been the first to confirm their fashion show attendance. We’ve already reported that Chandra Wilson and Sara Ramirez will be at the Angel Sanchez show, and now Ellen Pompeo is reported to be showing up for Y-3 after attending Giorgio Armani Prive in Paris last week. She is seen at the SAG awards at left in a Nina Ricci creation she supposedly picked from the pages of Vogue magazine.

It seems that many celebrities are looking to supplement incomes affected by the writer’s strike, either asking flat out for money, flights, and hotels in return for attending shows or even saying they’ll only attend if they can get a contract for an ad campaign.

“Gone are the days when celebrities came to the shows in exchange for a wardrobe,” Alison Brod, of Alison Brod Public Relations, said to WWD. “They want to make money.”

Lori Levine, of talent booking firm Flying Television, told WWD that Marc Jacobs, Zac Posen and Narciso Rodriguez are always popular with celebs. She expects stars with strong relationships with designers – like Jessica Simpson at Michael Kors, Claire Danes at Narciso Rodriguez and Teri Hatcher at Badgley Mischka, to be out en force.

ACE%20awards.jpg
At the 11th Annual Accessories Council Excellence Awards at Cipriani in Manhattan on Monday, Lucy Liu looked very stunning. Her dress might be big and ruffly with a large lacy bow on the front, but it works for her. Jessica Simpson was one of the presenters (shown above with president and CEO of Macy’s Inc. Terry Lundgren), but she doesn’t look too great in a too-tight leopard print dress. Continue over to the jump for more on the ACE Awards.
