Eighties Fashion Style

She's the pop singer seen jogging in Central Park. Madonna captured the style and fashion sense of generation. Especially teenage girls in the 1980s. Madonna is among the most influential people of the 1980s.

Madonna has always had a special relationship with the media. While many stars try desperately to avoid the paparazzi, Madonna has the power to manipulate the media to her advantage.

In 1985 Madonna ruled the airwaves and MTV too. Madonna at her peak was making music, videos and even movies at a fevered pace. Madonna had the media all sewn up by the mid 1980s. Madonna never had too much trouble from the paparazzi. She, in fact, seemed to embrace the photographers throughout her early career.

From her wildly teased and colored hair to the return of lace and fishnet stockings, her accessories were outrageous, and girls around the world wanted to be like Madonna even going so far as to add her trademark mole to their cheeks.

Paris Fashion Week

Paris Fashion Week as always was a major destination for the designer crowd recently. Boasting some of the hottest names in the industry and an A grade guest list, Paris is the home of Haute Courture.

Naturally plenty of press were on hand to give a blow by blow description of each days high and low lights. Now that the closing ceremony has come and gone the critics have given their overview of proceedings and as always it has involved an over use of adjectives and overstating the obvious.

Anne Keothavong In Action

Anne Keothavong has claimed she would have done broken into the world's top 50 years ago were it not for “unprofessional people” at the Lawn Tennis Association.
The 25-year-old rose four places to 48th in the rankings, following her run to the semi-finals in the Cellular South Cup in Memphis last week.
She is the first British woman since Jo Durie 16 years ago to make it into the top 50, and it continues the relatively late blossoming of a player who was ranked 134th 12 months ago.
But, although Keothavong is now content with the support provided to her by the LTA, she has criticised the sport's governing body in Britain for hampering her progress earlier in her career.
The Londoner, who turned professional in 2001, said she was now reaping the benefits of working with coaches she could trust.

Fall 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Fantastic Hats

hats_022110
Fantastic Hats at Behnaz Sarafpour, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Charlotte Ronson.

Style tip? What’s the easiest way to transform your look? One word: accessories. And the accessory of choice this season appears to be the hat. Designers used fantastic hats as a way to transport this season’s looks to other places - whether it’s decades past (as at Behnaz Sarafpour), mythology (a la Charlotte Ronson’s Arabian Nights), or Marc by Marc Jacobs’ modern cowboy.

Fall 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Purple

purple_021910
Purple at Erin Fetherston, Phillip Lim 3.1, and Luca Luca.

Style tip? Purple is coming in all shapes, sizes, and hues this season. Try, if you dare, a bright shiny purple, a la Phillip Lim’s dashing cocktail dress. Or opt for a softer shade of purple, as at Luca Luca and Erin Fetherston. Whatever the shade, purple looks positively polished on simple silhouettes. Just let the color shine.

Murray prescribed, “His beginning was very fine and sound, striking the ball solid with his forehand and I was hitting it short. But after 3-0 in the first set I performed well until 5-1 (in the second) and then completely misplaced attentiveness, and finished up being in a battle at the end, which I didn’t essentially need.

He further said, “I was much gladder with the means I punch the ball today compared to my first match, bar the first and last three games.”

Somewhere else, sixth seed Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina facilitated past Janko Tipsarevic 6-4 6-1, and 11th seed David Ferrer of Spain defeat Croatia’s Marin Cilic 3-6 6-3 6-4.

On the other hand In the women’s draw, 13th seed Caroline Wozniacki defeat fourth seed Elena Dementieva 7-5 6-4 to participate in a quarter-final against eighth seed Svetlana Kuznetsova, who beat fellow Russian Alisa Kleybanova 6-2 6-1. Samantha Stosur carried out her win over second seed Dinara Safina by thrashing Amelie Mauresmo 6-4 6-4, and the Australian now face 11th seed Victoria Azarenka , who crushed Agnes Szavay 6-2 6-4.

Fall 2010 Fashion Week Trend Return of the 1970s

70s_022410
Return of the 1970s at Marc Jacobs, Vena Cava, and Peter Som.


Style tip? It may be 2010, but it felt like the year 1970 on the runways. Bohemian prints, maxi dresses, and flowing vests and sashes all graced the runways. How to get the look of the 1970s, but circa 2010? Make maxi dresses and bohemian dresses look modern with muted, more neutral colors. And accent your look with a bold lip color for a look that’s less au naturel and more modern sophisticate.

parka_022110

Parkas at Cynthia Steffe, Vena Cava, and Cynthia Rowley.


Style tip? What item of clothing can complement a dress just as well as a tee and jeans? The parka, that’s what. Parkas are the jacket of choice to pair with both casual and more formal outfits. We love the parka for its versatility and its comfort - plus, the hood and the extra pockets make it as practical as it is fashionable. Wear your oversized parka with slim fit clothes for a classic big-over-small look.

lingerie_022110
Lingerie & Lace at Cynthia Steffe, Alexander Wang, and Herve Leger.

Style tip? In 1990, Madonna introduced the world to underwear as outerwear with her iconic cone bra. Twenty years later, lingerie is still inspiring the world of sportswear. Case in point? Alexander Wang’s lingerie-meets-tailored suit look, which mixes feminine lace with masculine fabrications and tailoring. Then again, the lingerie influence need not be quite that overt. Cynthia Steffe suggested frilly underthings with a fitted ivory dress full of tiny pleats. And Herve Leger’s body conscious look merely outlined the bodice and skirt suggestively. How to wear lingerie & lace inspired looks in real life? We love the mix of masculine and feminine - a lacy cami under a structured blazer, a slip-type skirt with something more tailored up top. The key is to suggest rather than to show.

Andre Agassi Top Tennis Star

NEW YORK - When Todd Martin announced his retirement from tennis on Monday night after losing his first-round match to Frenchman Fabrice Santoro in four sets, Andre Agassi became the last graybeard on the men’s circuit. Older players such as Pete Sampras, Jim Courier, Michael Chang, David Wheaton and now Martin have stepped aside.

Can Agassi carry the mantle himself by winning his ninth career Grand Slam at the U.S. Open? Frankly, I don’t think so. Why? Age has caught up with him.

That said, I think we must admit that this has been a very puzzling year for Agassi in that he never knows whether he is going to play well or not. Agassi once slumped during the 1997 season, when he plummeted out of the top 100.

Anastasia Rodionova Pictures 2010

Third seeds Sania Mirza and Shahar Peer survived a scare from Tatiana Poutchek and Anastasia Rodionova before advancing to the doubles quarter-finals of the US $600,000 Bank of West Classic tournament in Stanford.
The Indo-Israeli pair beat the unseeded Belarussian-Russian duo 6-1, 0-6, 11-9 in over an hour at the WTA Tour hard court tournament on Wednesday.
Sania and Peer will meet the Uzbek-German team of Akgul Amanmuradova and Angalika Bachmann.
Sania, who is aiming for a second successive doubles title after her triumph in Cincinatti with Bethanie Mattek last week, and Peer failed to convert two breakpoints in the third set which saw them being broken thrice.
But they got their act together in the super tie-breaker to advance to the quarters.

early morning



I'm obsessed with breakfast. My current favorite is rolled oats with milk and maple sirup topped with pecan nuts and fruit (today: strawberries and pinapple). And of course my obligatory glass of orange & carrot juice ♥

I'm leaving for a short vacation in Madrid with my sisters today so I need to go packing now. =P
