While her music might not be for everyone, there is no denying that 26-year-old rapper Cardi B is making waves with her club anthems, outspoken personality and vivid sense of style. In her recent music video “I Like It Like That,” the rapper sports a tropical inspired ensemble which suits the Latin beats of the hit song. If you want to draw your Halloween inspiration from popular culture, you may want to channel your inner Cardi B for any parties or special events on All Hallows’ Eve. We’ve curated a few product picks that will help you get her flamboyant, feminine look from the “I Like It Like That” video.  

1) Indah Reese Wrap Skirt in Marigold, $125: We are liking this vibrant, rich yellow skirt which features ruffles and an asymmetrical hemline. Cardi B sports a similar, long skirt with a high-low hem in her video, and this versatile inspired piece can even help you capture her style long after the Halloween festivities have ended.  

2) Simona Corsellini Sleeveless Top, $91: Try pairing your flirty, flowy skirt with an embellished corset top. This Simona Corsellini number offers a glamorous feel, with its tiny straps and its iridescent, multicoloured detail.  

3) Asa Kaftans Velvet Turban, $65: For a finishing touch, try topping off your look of the night with a stylish turban in a bright blue tone. This velvet headpiece makes a statement with its dark teal colour, ruched detail and shimmery fabric.

Karl Lagerfeld, Iconic Fashion Designer, Has Died

Karl Lagerfeld, the fashion icon and creative director of Chanel and Fendi has passed away at the age of 85. The exact cause of death is unknown.

Lagerfeld took over the reins of Chanel back in 1983, reviving the brand among young women and leading it ever since. The outspoken designer was one of fashion’s most recognizable figures with his signature black and white clothing, ponytail and dark glasses.

Celebrities, fellow fashion designers and Chanel have shared their sadness over the news.

  

It is with deep sadness that the House of CHANEL announces the passing of Karl Lagerfeld, the Creative Director for the CHANEL Fashion House since 1983. An extraordinary creative individual, Karl Lagerfeld reinvented the brand’s codes created by Gabrielle Chanel: the CHANEL jacket and suit, the little black dress, the precious tweeds, the two-tone shoes, the quilted handbags, the pearls and costume jewelry. Regarding Gabrielle Chanel, he said, “My job is not to do what she did, but what she would have done. The good thing about Chanel is it is an idea you can adapt to many things.” A prolific creative mind with endless imagination, Karl Lagerfeld explored many artistic horizons, including photography and short films. The House of CHANEL benefited from his talent for all the branding campaigns related to Fashion since 1987. Finally, one cannot refer to Karl Lagerfeld without mentioning his innate sense of repartee and self-mockery. Alain Wertheimer, CEO of CHANEL, said: “Thanks to his creative genius, generosity and exceptional intuition, Karl Lagerfeld was ahead of his time, which widely contributed to the House of CHANEL’s success throughout the world. Today, not only have I lost a friend, but we have all lost an extraordinary creative mind to whom I gave carte blanche in the early 1980s to reinvent the brand.” Bruno Pavlovsky, President of Fashion at CHANEL, said: “Fashion show after fashion show, collection after collection, Karl Lagerfeld left his mark on the legend of Gabrielle Chanel and the history of the House of CHANEL. He steadfastly promoted the talent and expertise of CHANEL’s ateliers and Métiers d’Art, allowing this exceptional know-how to shine throughout the world. The greatest tribute we can pay today is to continue to follow the path he traced by – to quote Karl – ‘continuing to embrace the present and invent the future’.” Virginie Viard, Director of CHANEL’s Fashion Creation Studio and Karl Lagerfeld’s closest collaborator for more than 30 years, has been entrusted by Alain Wertheimer with the creative work for the collections, so that the legacy of Gabrielle Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld can live on.

Red Carpet Style At The Hollywood Beauty Awards

Lights, camera, action…the Hollywood Beauty Awards were handed out Saturday night at The Avalon in Hollywood (err…naturally). Although the night was mostly about celebrating glam squads and celebrity stylists, the red carpet looks worn by the stars (all dressed in black, we might add) in attendance stole some of the limelight…in a good way.

Canadian cutie Nina Dobrev looked picture perfect in a one-shoulder, bejewelled—check that sparkle—Michael Kors gown. Dobrev’s centre part and bold lip lent to her glamorous look, as did the gown’s thigh-high slit that revealed her gorgeous gams.

Enlisting designer Michael Costello for her custom, leather jumpsuit, songstress Ciara looked nothing short of fierce. The overall body-hugging fit, strong-shoulders, and revealing neckline, showed off her enviable figure, and delivered a hint of badass.

Ashlee Simpson Ross went full sequins, in a shiny, black Galia Lahav dress with major shoulder pads. Accessorizing with statement earrings, cocktail rings, and husband Evan (Ross), the blonde beauty dressed to impress.

Bling it On at the Grammy Awards

The best dressed songstresses brought out the bling (and didn’t miss a style beat) at music’s biggest night—also known as the 2019 Grammy Awards! Sparkly gowns finished with luxe extras epitomized exactly what we hope to see on a red carpet…bling. And with that our winners are…

Lady Gaga is a staple on the awards season fashion circuit this year, with the acting and singing nods she’s pulling in for her role in the movie ‘A Star is Born’—not that we’re complaining. Last night Gaga had us gaga over her metallic silver, high shine Cèline gown and Tiffany Co. jewels (she was reportedly drowning in over 100 carats of diamonds!). Oh, and we should mention Gaga took home three trophies: Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Best Song Written For Visual Media for ‘Shallow,’ and Best Pop Solo Performance for ‘Joanne.’

Dua Lipa may have won Grammys for Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording for ‘Electricity’ with Silk City, but her sequinned, silver Versace gown with a sweetheart neckline, had us cheering the loudest. The long train of the dress paired with Bvlgari jewellery, was just the right mix of drama and decadence.

Before opening the show by performing her hit song ‘Havana,’ Camila Cabello was all that glitters in this fitted Armani Privé, pink gown. With long-sleeves, a high-neck and a cut-out back, this sparkly dress hugged Cabello’s figure perfectly. Harry Winston jewellery and Tamara Mellon heels ended the song (we mean, look) on a stylish note.
