Trends | The Devil Wears Prada Sequel is Coming and its Title is…

I’m so excited to share this with you! If you loved The Devil Wears Prada- both the book and the movie- then get ready to fall in love all over again! Lauren Weisberger who penned the first book is coming out with part 2 of the much loved fashionable story.




The upcoming sequel entitled “Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns”, picks up almost 10 years after the original book was released. Here is an excerpt from Good Reads detailing the plot:

“Revenge Wears Prada picks up eight years after Andy parted ways with Miranda on bad terms. Andy is now editing The Plunge, the hottest bridal magazine around, alongside Emily, her one-time Runway nemesis turned current BFF. While Andy is planning her own wedding to Max, a handsome media scion, she remains haunted by her impeccably heeled former boss — and the magazine world being as small as it is, it’s only a matter of time before she hears the dreaded syllables “Ahn-dre-ah!” again.”


The devil


Revenge Wears Prada is to be released on June 4th in the US, and hopefully it won’t be long before the book is available in Lebanon so we can enjoy it as well. It’s also a matter of months before Hollywood comes knocking to adapt the story into a multi-million dollar big screen movie!

Fashion Fails | Worst Dressed at the MET Gala

We’ve seen the good, and now it’s time to unveil the ugly! While some celebrities nailed the punk theme, others just took it a little too far! Here they are:

Anne Hathaway in vintage Valentino: We know you’re trying to show off your new platinum do’ Anne, but it’s so hard to concentrate on your hair because all we can see are those distracting sheer panels and furry cuffs from your dress!


Anne H


Elizabeth Banks in Atelier Versace and custom “Elizabeth” by Brian Atwood sandals: While this look could have worked for her role as Effie Trinket in “The Hunger Games”, the shinny gold tux proved to be too much for the MET red carpet!


Elizabeth Banks


Kristin Stewart in Stella McCartney: There are so many things wrong with this jumpsuit; from the maroon color to the volumes, KStew looks lost somewhere in this outfit. Also not helping her look was her choice of eyeshadow!




Karlie Kloss in Louis Vuitton: Maybe the Victoria’s Secret angel should have went for a punk inspired bikini instead of this awful and unflattering Louis Vuitton dress!


Karlie Kloss


Katy Perry in Dolce & Gabanna: While Katy Perry’s outfit choices are usually interesting, this was just too much. From the jewel encrusted dress to the crown (yes crown!), Perry should have known that if the characters on “Game of Thrones” wouldn’t wear this, then neither should she!


Katy Perry


Ashley Olsen: While it remains unclear who designed Ashley’s dress, what’s for sure is that she looked like the little angel statue my family uses for the manger at Christmas time!


Ahley Olsen


Madonna in custom-made Givenchy by Ricardo Tisci: Seriously Madonna! You’re 54! If you’re not going to start putting pants on now, when will you?!




Beyoncé in custom-made Givenchy by Ricardo Tisci: Looking like she was doing a dress rehearsal for her music video for “Bow Down B*****s” (especially in the shoe department), Beyoncé was a walking disaster in this matchy-matchy outfit- a far cry from her winning look at last year’s MET Gala.




Kelly Osbourne in Marc Jacobs: I don’t have the words to describe this look, but I will say that while I am a huge fan of Marc Jacobs, this dress just did not work!


Kelly Osbourne


Kim Kardashian in custom-made Givenchy by Ricardo Tisci: Having been publicly banned from the MET Gala over the years by Anna Wintour , Kim reportedly only received an invite for being Kanye West’s gf. I was actually looking forward to seeing what she would wear following so many fashion faux pas throughout her pregnancy. Instead, she looked like a big pile of flowers that needed to be watered. (gloves included!) Let’s hope Kimye stay together until next year so she can try to redeem herself!

Red Carpet | Memorable Gowns from the MET Gala!

The annual Costume Institute Gala- also known as the Met Gala- is upon us again! Fashion’s major social event takes place annually at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

This year’s event will take place on May 6th, and in anticipation of the big day, here are the top 10 most memorable gowns from the Gala!

Camilla Belle hit the 2012 ceremony in a Ralph Lauren Spring/Summer 2012 gown. While I’m not so sure about the hot chocolate lip color, Belle’s ivory tulle beaded dress was stunning and her Ralph Lauren art- deco jewels helped her nail the look!

Never the one to shy away from showing some skin, Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively slipped into this Versace gown for the 2009 Met Gala. The actress flaunted her cleavage and put her legs on full display in this chiffon teal gown. Crystal detailed Versace sandals completed her look.

Diane Kruger chose this Jason Wu two toned gown for the 2011 Gala. Her dress consisted of an embellished long sleeve bodice and black skirt with a hip high slit. Side parted waves and a red lip completed her glamorous look.

Fashion’s IT girl Emma Stone wore this Lanvin creation for the 2012 MET Gala in NYC. The over the knee hemline and fun details were enough to land her on the best dressed list last year. If only Emma skipped the boring black pumps and went for some killer sandals!

Kate Beckinsale is always stunning on the red carpet, so it’s no surprise that she was just that at the 2010 event. Beckinsale wore a Marchesa tulle ball gown with a steel sparkling bodice and a full skirt. Adding even more glamour to her extravagant look? Her foot long train!

Inspired by her role in The Princess Diaries, Anne Hathaway wore a glamorous Valentino gown for the 2010 Met Gala. The sparkling champagne color created a great contrast with her skin and the full skirt added more drama to the look.

Anne H Valentino5

Zoe Saldana was a vision of simplicity and class at the 2010 Met Ball. The actress sparkled in this one sleeved navy gown courtesy of Calvin Klein. A classic updo and natural makeup completed her look!

A few months after welcoming baby Blue, Beyonce emerged on the 2012 Met Gala red carpet in this custom made Givenchy gown. From the sheer bodice, to the playful details, and not forgetting the purple feathered train, there are few other ladies in the world who can pull off Queen B’s look!

People magazine’s Most Beautiful Woman in the world knows that Stella McCartney‘s creations are made for the MET Ball. Gwyneth Paltrow stunned in this sequined nude gown by the British designer. Details included a thigh high slit that served as a reminder of the actress’ fabulous figure!

If there’s anyone who keeps getting it right year after year at the MET Ball, that person is non other than supermodel Gisele Bundchen! For the 2008 event, the Brazilian beauty sizzled in a soft pink Versace gown that showed plenty of skin. Two years later, Gisele went for a fierce look in a fringed Jason Wu mini that put her curves on full display.


The following year, Gisele was a vision of class and glamour in a voluminous Alexander McQueen scarlet gown and full skirt with raw edges. (check out her glossy hair!). She put on a skin tight Givenchy black dress with strappy in 2012 sandals proving that no one ever does it better than her at the MET Gala!



Let’s Talk Memorable Celebrity Wedding Gowns on LBC SAT’s “B Beirut”!

It was my pleasure to be a guest on “B Beirut” yesterday night, a lifestyle show that is broadcast live on LBC SAT daily at 7:30PM.

The topic I covered with the show’s very fashionable host Bilal Al Arabi was memorable celebrity wedding dresses. As you all know, wedding season is just around the corner and you beautiful ladies may want to get some inspiration from the gowns your favorite stars wore for their walk down the aisle. Check out the gowns that were showcased on “B Beirut” below!

Kicking it off with Anne Hathaway who wore a stunning custom made Valentino couture gown for her nuptials to Adam Shulman in Big Sur, CA late last year. The Les Miserables star’s gown was inspired by the 20s and even featured a head band that covered her short tresses (thank God!). Additionally, the gown was hand painted on the bottom in pink which added a girly touch to the otherwise very feminine look.

The Black Eyed Peas’ frontwoman Fergie wore custom made Dolce & Gabbana for her wedding to Josh Duhamel. The dress featured a fitted corset, tulle train, and a collection of tulle flowers that were knitted on the back with Swarovsky crystals placed in the center. Take a look at that amazing diamond necklace in her hair!


Fergie in Dolce and Gabbana



Gwen Stefani knows a thing or two about being rocker chic! For her wedding to Gavin Rossdale more than 10 years ago, Stefani wore a Couture Dior gown that was white, but featured a hot pink hue towards the hem. Gwen knew how to inject some punk rock into her gown while keeping it classy and is widely credited today as the celebrity who inspired pink wedding gowns!


Gwen Stefani in Christian Dior



Hillary Duff, known to many as Lizzy McGuirre wore a custom made Vera Wang mermaid gown for her wedding to Hockey player Mike Comrie. The petite star looked stunning in this strapless dress that featured loads of ruffles below the knee. Tip! Mermaid gowns look good on almost every body shape; this style adds some height if you need an extra few inches and covers problem areas where you might appear to be fuller.

One of my favorite celebrity gowns belongs to Jenna Dewan who married the very sexy Channing Tatum in a charming outdoor ceremony. The stunning actress wore a Couture gown by Lebanese American designer Reem Acra that featured a full skirt, beading on the bodice, and whimsical feathers all over. Love it!

How else would you expect Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake to pose on the cover of People magazine on their wedding day? The beautiful actress slipped into a pink Giambattista Valli couture gown for her Italian wedding to the popular pop star. Biel kept her makeup to a minimum and had her hair in a simple updo , which kept the focus on the dress!


Jessica Biel in Giambattista Valli



British supermodel Kate Moss married Jamie Hince in England in a village like ceremony. The groom wore a blue grey retro suit while the blond bride wore a dress by her friend John Galliano. Moss’ gown was inspired by 20s icon Zelda Fitzgerald and was lightly sequined with sheer panels here and there. The model’s bridal party (including her daughter who served as her maid of honor) were all dressed by her close friend and designer Stella McCartney.


Kate Moss in John Galliano



When Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise got married, it was a match made in tabloid heaven for months to come! Holmes asked Giorgio Armani to create her gown for the big day (as well as Cruise’s tux) who designed this off-the-shoulder beaded dress with a tulle trimmed veil for their big wedding in an Italian castle!


Katie Holmes in Armani


When Kim Kardashian announced that she was marrying Basketball player Kris Humphries, everyone knew she was going to go all out for her wedding. But no one expected her to wear three custom made gowns- that reportedly cost $75,000- by Vera Wang! For the ceremony, the reality star wore a Cinderella like strapless gown which featured a full skirt. (Check out the diamonds on her forehead!). After, Kim K slipped into a mermaid tulle gown for the reception and later on changed into a champagne colored satin number to cut the cake. Notice how in each look, the reality star wears different jewels and changes her hair and makeup!

Everyone expected Mariah Carey to go all out for her wedding to Nick Cannon a few years ago. However, the diva surprised everyone by wearing a simple Nile Cymlo gown to her big day in the Bahamas. Her dress was reportedly the same color as the island’s sand! It doesn’t stop their though- following the ceremony, guests gathered around the ocean and watched as Mariah’s dress turned pink once she entered the water. Guess Carey did have a surprise up her sleeve!


Mariah Carey in Nile Cymlo


For her understated wedding to Brian Austin Greene in Hawaii, Megan Fox wore a simple gown made especially for her by Armani Privé. The actress looked beautiful as she walked barefoot in the sand in her sweetheart neckline gown that featured a stunning flowing veil and a 13 foot train- yes 13!

Melania Knauss shocked the world when she appeared on the cover of Vogue magazine one month prior to her wedding in her actual wedding dress! Yes, the former model posed in her John Galliano strapless gown that had a 13-foot train and was made from 300 feet of white duchesse satin, and 1,500 pearls and crystal rhinestones. Guess it pays to marry a billionaire like Donald Trump!

The Legally Blond Reese Witherspoon wore a custom made Monique Lhuiller soft pink gown for her wedding to Jim Toth in her home in Ojai, CA. The classy actress’ gown featured a corset top made of Chantilly lace along with a separated tulle A-line skirt with a silk satin ribbon.

Which designer would you choose to design your wedding gown if your husband-to-be owned Gucci, YSL, and Balenciaga? Well Salma Hayek chose Balenciaga for her Venice wedding to PPR chairman Francois Henri Pinault. The stunning gown featured a silver beaded bodice that highlighted her cleavage (as always) and a full off-white skirt. Stunning!


Salma Hayek in Balenciaga



I LOVE Victoria Beckham, but I think that if she were to get married again, she would pick another gown than the Vera Wang she wore to her wedding to David Beckham over 10 years ago. Nevertheless, Mrs. Beckham is beautiful in this champagne colored satin strapless gown. And check out those apples in her bouquet! Maybe that’s a British thing? ;)
