Posted in adventure, celebrity, eccentric, friends, fun, makeup, montreal by fashionista514 on June 17, 2009

What I’m Wearing

  • American Apparel tie dress in emerald green (if you don’t already have one… what are you waiting for? You can wear it a ridiculous amount of ways, and ohhh so comfy!)
  • Patent nude Louboutin open toe pumps… my fave
  • Crocodile belt (I scored this in South Africa at a trade shop!!! It IS real, and cost me approx. $100 – AMAZING!!!)

P.S. Today I did a makeup tutorial for the punk/goth/metal/rock band Fattooth! I will have pics up soon of the guys doing their own extreme makeup and a vid of the photoshoot! They will be touring North America this summer (check out tour dates here) Fun fun fun! Tomorrow I hit up the theme park LaRonde here in the 514… more fun fun fun… 😉 I’m liking the direction this week is taking…

Infactuated With Robert Pattinson!

Posted in celebrity, crush, movies by fashionista514 on May 12, 2009
Okay… so here it is. Out loud. I am truly infatuated with Robert Pattinson and Edward (the vampire he plays) from Twilight. There, that wasn’t too bad!

So, I have totally become victim to the teen sensation movie and book saga… somehow this hormone induced love story has taken hold of me…

Honestly… what the hell is there not to love about Robert Pattinson/Edward Cullen?!? He is a perfect gentleman (aside from wanting to kill you), and has this insane intensity to him.

How much cooler can you get?!? I know smoking is a nasty habit, but he makes it look so good…

Did you know he sings?!? Check out YouTube for some of his heartbreaking melodies…

Okay, okay… look, I know I am gushing… but you have to believe that I am trying very hard to stay in control here… I have a stupid teenage celebrity crush that I cannot control… Yes, I am aware that I am a 23 year old… (sigh..)

All I can say is that I am totally looking forward to the New Moon movie sequel (still in the middle of the book)… I’m getting a little tired of obsessing over Twilight and watching it five times a day…. hehehehe… did I say that out loud?!?

Anyways… enjoy Rob’s beauty and try to not get AS obsessed with Twilight as I am!!!

P.S. If you didn’t think the movie was so great, read the books and everything will become much clearer and more detailed 😉

RuPaul Role Model

Godiva Chocolate Hotel Room!!!

Ladies, ladies, ladies… I don’t know if you’ve already heard about this, but let me tell you – it is music to my unknowing ears!!! Last year for Valentine’s Day, Godiva Chocolatier played Willy Wonka and hid a secret invitation in one of it’s special edition Valentines Day truffles assortments!
The company re-created a suite at the famous Bryant Park Hotel in New York City for a sinful getaway for two. Everything from the table, chandeliers, books (which opened up to truffles), as well as paintings (a chocolate rendition of Gustav Klimts “The Kiss”) were made entirely of chocolate. Mmmmmmm…. Can you say “overdose”?!?

Lucky Ali Larter got to experience it firsthand to promote it as their spokesperson… lucky girl!

Pretty irresistible stuff, huh Ali? 😉

Wow!!! … is all I can say!

Gemma Atherton (thanks for the correction) turns heads in this flowing number on the catwalk. I thought this dress, on this girl, was deserving of it’s very own post 🙂

My favorite "It Couple" of the Moment

Posted in celebrity, fashion, fashion show, funk by fashionista514 on March 25, 2009
How stylin’ are Kanye & Amber? Damn! I love the originality and how they are soo themselves!

You know what they say, huh… the couple that attends fashion shows together stays together!!!

Here’s wishing them a long, prosperous relationship. The unity of two artists completely in sync with each other!

Oh la Dita!

Posted in beauty, celebrity, diva, envy by fashionista514 on February 27, 2009
Born Heather Sweet, this sweetfaced blonde from West Branch Michigan transformed herself into the daringly sexy and provocative Dita Von Teese. Bringing back the style of old hollywood, she is always presented in public with utter elegance and pristine perfection. A true fashionista if I may say so – playing muse to a wide array of fashion designers such as Marc Jacobs, John Galliano, Jean-Paul Gaulthier and Zac Posen. Attending events in numbers snatched off the runways presented merely days before.

Performing her classic martini glass burlesque show from London England to Los Angeles, this girl is the cats meow of the burlesque world! Known for her head to toe outfits encrusted with hundreds if not thousands of Swarovski crystals she is well known for her shows at hot designers events (Christian Louboutin, Louis Vuitton, Chopard and Roland Mouret). Also a spokesperson for MAC Viva Glam, she is a proud supporter of the HIV/AIDS cause.

Dita’s beautiful two-sided book “Burlesque – Art of the Teese” (both burlesque fashions and bondage) is available on-line on her website – SIGNED! Gorgeous color photos of Dita in many of her glamourous fashions and fetishistic getups… Makes a great gift and re-inspires the sex kitten in all of us!
