15 Years of Posh & Becks

It’s been 15 years since Victoria Adams married David Beckham, becoming Mrs. Victoria Beckham, and leading the genetically blessed twosome to take the world by storm with their football/pop star combo. The Beckhams are practically royalty- to the extent that they were once dubbed the most famous “brand” in Britain. They always seem to make a splash in every single country they set foot in, and with Victoria’s current A list fashion designer status, this couple shows no sign of slowing down.

So, in honor of Posh and Becks’ 15 years of togetherness, here are 15 takes of their major fashion moments together!

 

Victoria and David were snapped on one of their first dates together in 1998. Take a look at David in sandals and what looks like a sarong wrapped around his waist- what a far cry away from his major fashion moments!

Posh and Becks gave a new meaning to "all black everything" by slipping into his and hers matching Versace leather body suits in 1999. You really just can't turn your head away from this fashion crime!

WE'RE ENGAGED! A few days after their engagement, Victoria flaunts her major sparkler while wearing a black fur coat, as David looks on- also in matching black. Look how young he was!

David and Victoria said "I Do" in a lavish ceremony that took place in 2000. Victoria wore a custom made strapless Vera Wang design and accessorized with a mini tiara. Once again, David was Victoria's perfect match in a cream colored suit.

A few months after tying the knot, Posh and Becks stepped out in another matching outfit, even going as far to sport big diamond crosses. The pair casually showed off their toned bodies and seemed to really be enjoying married life together!

Best Dressed at the 2014 MET Gala

The MET Gala took place last night in New York City. This year’s theme was Charles James: Beyond Fashion.

In case you’re not aware, Charles James was a technologically advanced couturier who rose to fame in the 1950s. Originally British, James was known as the architect of fashion; some of his designs were so structured that they could stand on their own. All these attributes led Charles James to become extremely popular to the extent that he was dubbed “America’s first Couturier”.

But enough history for now! Let’s get to the Best Dressed at last night’s gala!

Blake Lively 

She’s backkk! Ever since Blake Lively said “I Do” to Ryan Reynolds, she’s shown a more mature style on the red carpet, wearing understated outfits and covering up her assets. But last night, Blake brought the glamour back to the red carpet and stunned in a sparkly Gucci Première gown. From her soft waves to her jewels, Blake was absolutely flawless!

Gisele Bundchen

No surprise here! Gisele continues her winning streak at the MET for yet another year by wearing a breath taking black gown by Balenciaga. The Brazilian model kept everything else simple and simply accessorized with a pair of Fred Leighton emerald earrings.

Victoria Beckham

Both Mr. and Mrs. Beckham wowed New York City last night! Posh wore a beautiful white column dress from her own Victoria Beckham collection while David matched his wife’s ensemble perfectly in a black and white Ralph Lauren Black Label suit.

Naomi Watts

We all know that this Australian beauty can do no wrong on the red carpet! Watts waltzed onto the red carpet in this Givenchy partly sheer stunner. The actress made sure to let the dress make a statement by keeping her accessories and hairstyle fairly simple.

Beyoncé

Beyoncé sure knows how to bring glamour to the MET. Mrs. Carter made a fashion statement in her Givenchy Couture gown that was measured to fit her body perfectly! Queen B accessorized with a matching beaded black head piece and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Reese Witherspoon

With so many pink hued gowns on the red carpet, it was hard to pick a favorite! There’s no denying that Reese Witherspoon looked like a winner in this Stella McCartney fushia gown. It’s also so refreshing to see Reese look this stunning, especially after her train wreck ensemble at the Golden Globes earlier this year.

Kim Kardashian 

Hate her or love her, this must be said: Kim Kardashian looked amazing at last night’s event. The reality star ditched her much loved skin tight- curve hugging- over plunging outfits in favor of this navy Lanvin creation. For once in a really really long time, Kim looks classy and understated! Kim also gets bonus points for changing her strappy sandals at the last minute in favor of these black stunners! Here’s hoping she keeps this up for her wedding, rumored to be taking place next week in Paris.

Trends | Boy Meets Girl at Victoria Beckham SS14

New York Fashion Week is in full swing! Some of our most loved designers are showcasing their upcoming Spring- Summer 2014 collections in the Big Apple during the week long event. I am always excited to see what Victoria Beckham brings to the table every time she has a fashion show, and seriously the lady never disappoints!

 

white

 

For the upcoming season, Beckham said that her focus was on shape both visually and conceptually of every single outfit. She also wanted to design items that are light weight and easy to wear, and her main goal was to create the perfect pair of trousers that are trendy, but also comfortable.

 

colors

 

There’s also a sense of boyishness in her designs. As opposed to her previous collection-which was very masculine- Beckham made sure that the collection portrayed a flirty boy meets girl image and she succeeded in doing so!

Trends | Military Pride Still Going Strong!

August 1st is Army Day in Lebanon and on this occasion I thought it would be fun to write a military inspired post. From Marc Jacobs to Burberry to my favorite Victoria Beckham, (take a look at Mrs. Beckham’s collection below!) the military trend has been taking the world’s runways by storm in the past few seasons and there are no signs of it slowing down!

Fun flirty items like Rihanna’s print short-sleeved button down are a great way to inject a military feel into your wardrobe. Go fierce yet stay feminine in an olive colored pencil skirt with gold detailing like Alexa Chung did. Gwen Stefani and Kim Kardashian also adopted this trend; sticking to her signature style, Gwen wore printed pants while Kim went for a Burberry jacket with black accents.

If you want to go for this trend, always remember to mix one military inspired piece that stands out, but keep the rest of your look simple. You may consider combat boots, cargo skinny jeans, or even a coat. Take note from the late Princess Diana who sported this white jacket with gold detailing from back in the day. (just make sure to pass on the headpiece ;) )

Happy Army Day Everyone!

Trends | Victoria Beckham Pre-Fall 2013

She’s done it again! Victoria Beckham unveiled yet another simply amazing (serious emphasis on simple) Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

Once again, Mrs. Beckham is mastering the elegant, yet flirty everyday look by including work appropriate dresses with pleated skirts and dressy tops. She also experimented with baggy tops and structured designs.

 

black

 

 

White and black dominated (check out my new favorite LBD above), but the designer also added a few pops of blues, grays, and purples.

Beckham also focused on handbags, creating several designs in nude (my favorite is bottom right), black, red, and a melange of nude and plum.

Can’t wait to spot Victoria in one of these new items on the streets of the world’s famous fashion capitals!

Red Carpet | Glamour Dubs Victoria Beckham “Woman of the Decade”!

Victoria Beckham is an accomplished 90s pop star, married to one of the hottest men on Earth, has four equally genetically gifted children, and runs an extremely successful fashion label. All this allowed Victoria to earn the title of “Woman of the Decade” as announced by Glamour magazine during the magazine’s Women of the Year Awards in London last night.

 

VB

 

What do I love about Victoria? First, her children are never too far away no matter where she is; her eldest Brooklyn accompanied her last night and was such a gentleman walking mom down the red carpet in a sleek black suit! Second, even though she’s become a household name in the fashion industry whose creations are worn by Hollywood’s leading ladies, Victoria has enough confidence and admiration to her peers and proved that by donning a bustier pantsuit from Maison Martin Margiela to the soiree. Victoria managed to include her signature touch by adding a trendy gold VB clutch. A sideswept updo and towering platforms completed her winning look.

Can’t wait to see what Mrs. Beckham has in store for us in the coming decade!

Red Carpet | The Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball!

One of my all time favorite brands- Tiffany & Co. – celebrated its annual publication of its Blue Book in New York City late last week.

 

TIF

 

The Tiffany Blue Book (as the publication is called) is the brand’s annual catalogue that shows the jeweler’s latest dazzling pieces in all their glamour and brilliance. What’s even more interesting is the fact that this Blue Book has been published yearly since 1845 and has been known as the first mail order catalogue to be distributed in the United States of America.

The very exclusive event took place at New York’s Rockefeller’s Center where a giant Tiffany Blue Box was erected and a blue light show lit the skies of the big city. Hollywood’s A list stars came out to celebrate the big night wearing stunning designer gowns and more importantly, they were decked out in thousands of carats from Tiffany’s 2013 diamond collection. Take a look!

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!

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!

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!

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? ;)

Happy Mothers’ Day everyone!

On this occasion, I wanted to share with you my favorite stylish celebrity moms. These women are not just stunning Hollywood women; they are also there for their kids every step of the way! Check them out!

 

Jessica Alba is mom to Honor and Haven with husband Cash Warren. Jessica is always seen out with her kids whether at the park or getting ice cream or walking them to school. She does all her mommy duties  in the most stylish outfits and is known to be a huge fan of prints and mixing bold colors together.

Sofia Vergara is one of my favorite celebrities; she’s funny, outspoken, and looks good in anything! Sofia gave birth to her son Manolo when she was only 20 years old, so it should come as no surprise that this duo is extremely close (she’s 40) to the extent that they shot a “Got Milk” ad together!

My favorite Victoria’s Secret angel Miranda Kerr is one doting supermodel mommy! She’s constantly photographed all over New York City carrying her son Flynn. Miranda and Orlando’s good looks have clearly been passed on to Flynn who is absolutely adorable!

From pop star to footballer’s wife to fashion designer, Victoria Beckham has accomplished so much since emerging as Posh Spice in the 90s. This stylish celebrity is also an amazing mother to Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz, and Harper, taking her kids everywhere she goes including dad David’s football matches in Paris. She even makes carrying little Harper around airports look effortlessly stylish!

Jennifer Lopez is known to wear big designer names-from Pucci to Zuhair Murad to Versace. And her kids are no different! Max and Emme starred with their mommy in a Gucci kids ad campaign that was seen all over the world a few years ago!Those two have a promising modeling career coming their way!

Spotted | Victoria Beckham’s Chanel Pumps Spice up London!

If I haven’t made it clear yet, I am absolutely in love with Victoria Beckham! I love everything she wears, all her designs and fashion shows, and what an amazing wife and mother she is!

So it comes as no surprise that her outing  yesterday caught my attention, especially what she was wearing in the shoe department; Victoria hit the London streets in these fabulous Chanel two toned satin grey pumps. Forget that they belong to the Pre-Fall 2010 collection (which may be ages ago in fashion history), the elegant pearl accents make the pumps shine like they were fresh off the 2013 runways.
