HP Celebrates Marchesa Spring 2012 Collection during NYFW

Once again, HP has captured my full attention when I saw the photo attachments on the email. They’ve managed to surpass the wow factor of one of their older projects which also was aimed at the fusion of fashion and technology — the HP Vivienne Tam Digital Clutch something that I had stumbled upon earlier that year prior attending that event.

This time, HP celebrated the Marchesa Spring 2012 Collection at the Dream Hotel last 13th of September, 2011 in New York City — during this year’s New York Fashion Week (NYFW). Wait till you see how this particular gadget looks rendered in “tech art” luxury. I almost fell off my chair when I saw it.

HP celebrated the fusion of fashion and technology with Marchesa during NYFW. At Marchesa’s Plaza Hotel show, HP captured the fashion house’s 2012 Spring collection with HP Live 3-D. The 3-D images were presented later that evening to special industry guests, including Emma Roberts, Camilla Belle and Rachel Zoe, at the Dream Downtown.

Fergie on GLAMOUR’s December Ish Cover

I look at her and cry. She’s sooo pretty! I wonder if I’d ever look half as good as her dressed, styled and posed like that. I wish. Fergie is Fergie. Heh. I’ve always thought that she’s gorgeous (downright sexy to boot!) ever since I first saw a video of her and the rest of Black Eyed Peas. And yes, Fergie is on the cover of Glamour’s December issue, their 20th Anniversary Special Issue.

The Grammys. The fragrance. The new album. Black Eyed Peas front woman Stacy Ann Ferguson is having the year of her life. Fergie’s soaring vocals and dare–you–to–look–away sex appeal have made her an unstoppable musical force, both as a solo artist and with the Peas. She’s shown a real social conscience, working for causes from AIDS to cancer, and Glamour is proud to honor her as a 2010 Woman of the Year. Photographed in Los Angeles, Fergie poses on the cover in a Dsquared2 blazer and inside the issue in a Sonia Rykiel dress, Neil Lane jewelry and Christian Louboutin shoes.

You can check out both the photo and article here: Fergie: The Superstar.

Sharing a bit from what Fergie said on the topic of self-esteem: “[If] you start making the right choices for yourself, all of a sudden you start feeling better and better. You’d be surprised how addicting high self-esteem is.” and I couldn’t agree with her more.

Other women who join Fergie on the Glamour’s honour roster for 2010 Women of the Year are: Julia Roberts, Michelle Obama, Katie Spotz, Constance McMillen, Donatella Versace, Dr. Hawa Abdi & Her Daughters, Queen Rania, Cher, Lindsey Vonn, Mia Hamm & Lisa Leslie and the Female Heads of State. Individual articles can be perused on www.GLAMOUR.com.

Issue will be available digitally and on newsstands nationwide (US) on 09 November.

Happy reading!

Anna Paquin on NYLON TV

What can I say? Sometimes, it’s fabulous to watch backstage scenes of photoshoots. I say, sometimes, cuz if it’s presented in this manner — quick and interesting — then it will never bore me.

Here’s True Blood’s Sookie Stackhouse, Anna Paquin, star of the NYLON September TV Issue.

Love the clothes, shoes, accessories. I want her shiny gold blazer and her T-strap shoes! LOVE the shiny things and her hair. This clip certainly gave me more ideas for a much needed mood board. I need to put together a look for an event I’ll be attending. Ah, well. Wish me luck.

Charlize Theron on VOGUE September 2009 Cover

VOGUE September 2009 Cover - Charlize Theron | Tops II Bottoms - Fashion, Shopping, Street Style

VOGUE Covers are what dreams are made of. Okay, perhaps my apparent regard to Anna Wintour’s taste may have caused an over-statement but, heck, most of the covers I’ve seen so far has been exquisite. I especially love the one with Drew Barrymore, which I think was on the April 2005 issue. She (and the over-all effect of the cover) looked utterly divine.

Going back to present, we have the opportunity to check out the latest — before it hits the stands.

Admittedly, one of the faces that I truly find appealing belongs to Charlize Theron. And it’s reportedly on the cover of VOGUE September 2009 issue. Stunning, I should say.

Anna says ’40s is the Look, RED is the Colour, and Boots & Suits are Back. How’s that for some Fall Fashion Fun? It’s time to prep up for the onslaught of the latest Fall trends. Surely, this is one issue to look out for.

Ashley Olsen Bares for Marie Claire

Ashley Olsen in Marie Claire

Pop fashion icon Ashley Olsen graces the cover of the Marie Claire September issue. And on the clip featured, we can see that she’s half-nekkid, which accompanies an interview in which she bares a little bit about herself and how she’s glad she didn’t turn out like Britney Spears. Ouch.

There’s something about this particular half of the Olsen twins that makes me smile. Well, actually, I can’t really tell them apart. I simply rely on the celebrity gossips reporting which lady is which. True, both ladies have their own respective flair in fashion, notable difference, not to mention the individual issues linked to their person. But I’d like to focus more on their personal styles and I mostly like what I’ve been seeing on Ashley. I particularly like how she embodies a fearless stylish person, that she’s entrepreneurial and an individual. On top of everything else she has going in her life, she also maintains a clothing line, The Row.

I reckon it’s good to keep an eye out for Marie Claire’s September issue, you agree?

Jessica Simpson on GLAMOUR

I have to admit that I’m not really a huge fan of Jessica Simpson but her latest interview with Glamour was worth noting because of a little something she said:

“It’s not fair that women look in the mirror and feel disgust because of what society has made them believe about beauty. I’ve been through it myself and understand the pressures. We’re all facing the same struggles together, whether you’re a celebrity or not.” — Jessica Simpson, “I’m in a Great Place in My Life”, Glamour, August 2009
