Christian Louboutin shoes (available at Saks Fifth Avenue and Net-a-Porter) are well known for their shiny red soles and spot on perfectly trendy styles every season. Christian Louboutin’s fall/winter 2016 ad campaign is all about glam rock ’70s. Each shoe is amazing, featured prominently in each and every shot. Nothing in the shoot overpowers these shoes, and it is hard to believe that anything could. The Christian Louboutin fall 2016 collection is brimming with unfiltered attitude and the visual narration of confidence and assertiveness is inspiring.
Louboutin has been quoted saying: “It was a period where it was fun to have an attitude instead of trying to look very normal – people were showing off a bit, being a bit loud. They had an attitude, were proud of having an attitude and played with it, they were playing with their own femininity.” He has certainly shown this to us with every inch of this campaign dripping with the unapologetic attitude he mentions.
Christian Louboutin shoes are not only well known for being sultry, but also endure the fickleness and revolving door expiration dates on what is in and what is out of style. With the quote on his inspiration for this ’70s disco themed ad campaign, we can see why. Not a single centimeter of this lookbook is boring, everything is remarkable.
The Christian Louboutin fall/winter 2016 shoe lookbook was photographed by Sofia & Mauro, giving us all an unshielded view into Louboutin’s party day reminiscences. The glittering red and gold backdrops, brightly colored shoes, pearlescent eyeshadows, fur and sequins show off an imaginative, limitless gift for design. The styling had several leopard print bodysuits, shimmering tights, fishnet tights and sparkling sequined pants and neon eyeshadow.
Christian Louboutin’s fall 2016 ad campaign features bright colors and a throwback shimmer to the disco era. There is no subtlety; this line does not need it and is not interested in it. Rather the bold style, lines and colors are for the equally bold and colorful. The shiny red of the signature soles is matched by a shiny red lip and nail polish. Overall the shoes are amazing, every one of them brimming with a style and strength of character all their own.
The Christian Louboutin Mercura booties stole my heart and are my definitive favorite of this ad campaign. The gold wings are a nice touch that like everything else in this collection, fit in perfectly. Honorable mentions go to the richly colored Lououdance and Tacoluna, Victorina, Belfeconica, Noemi and Cybersandale.
The Wavy booties are nice as well. The entire fall 2016 campaign is interesting eye candy that will honestly fit into innumerable wardrobes and personal styles. There is no doubt that Christian Louboutin had a lot of fun in the ‘70s and we are reaping the benefits of this in spades.
There is life in the Louboutin fall 2016 ad campaign, brightly glittering and unapologetically vivid.
Celebs were eternally "out and about" last week, and precious few seemed to have any real agenda. Even more shocking: very few had anything to promote. This is pretty unusual, and the lack of fervent PR activity makes me feel kind of useless, to be honest. I guess we've hit the movie industry lull between summer blockbusters and the fall roll-out of possible Oscar contenders. Therefore, A-listers are just aimlessly ambling the streets of NYC, so far as we can tell. I haven't felt as bored as they look since college.

Proenza Schouler Lunch Clutch
Aisha Taylor is the singular celeb with any red carpet-related business to attend to this week. (That can't be true, she's just the only one with a good bag.) She carried this spotted calf hair Proenza Schouler Lunch Clutch to the LA premiere of Sausage Party.

Mansur Gavriel Mini Bucket Bag
Paps recently caught up with actress Busy Phillips while she was out and about in LA. She does not look super stoked to see them, but she's carrying a brick red Mansur Gavriel Mini Bucket Bag, so it's ultimately a win for us.

Chanel Classic Flap Bag
Diane Kruger looks ridiculously runway-ready here on the streets of NYC. She's carrying a chicChanel Classic Flap, and yes, she also has a Chanel iPhone case that's designed to look like a Chanel-branded pack of cigarettes. That's a lot to unpack, from a design perspective.

Louis Vuitton Dora Bag
Finally, here's Zoe Saldana, leaving Verve Coffee in LA with a beautiful black and red Louis VuittonDora Bag. This style has been in Louis Vuitton's stable for a while now, and I'm not entirely certain why it isn't more popular with celebs.
I want to start by saying that every look is not for everybody, some people have a different aesthetic and a lot of times this keeps people from investigating the individual pieces that make up a lookbook. One of the greatest things about fashion, however, is the ability to curate a look from nearly any piece, and that can certainly be done with the pieces in theWildfox ‘Academy’ fall 2016 lookbook that are already available at Wildfox.com. The affluent, sweet and bored aesthetic may not be your goal, but every piece in this collection is completely wearable.
The looks feature layers and layers and beautifully placed accessories. My favorite part of most lookbooks is the accessories and Wildfox did not disappoint. I am in love with their AMAZING eyewear; literally every piece was gorgeous. The two toned round spectacles are my favorite, but the shades were equally amazing.
Another favorite was a dark grey, nearly black sweatshirt with the words ‘Cry BB’ spelled out in sweetheart candies. This design was also seen on a T-shirt that was paired with a soft cardigan, high collared lace shirt, mid-length skirt, thigh-high fishnets and what appeared to be cute wedges all in light tones.
Not bright, nothing in the lookbook was overbearing or harsh, nothing definitively bright or dark. Wildfox brought a vintage look that had a fresh take, while also preserving sustained existence in the fashion world – the ever sought after timeless quality.
There is lace, bows, prints, cardigans, dresses, skirts, oversized sweaters, and T-shirts. All of these looks were finished off with ribbons, bows, belts, fabulous eyewear, various length sheer and knit socks in a variety of shades, chunky heeled shoes and even knit hats. Sure most lookbooks feature all of these pieces and they can easily be checked off, but no matter the number of layers, the pieces meshed well. Each of these aspects was layered together for a cute, debutante-esque look, complete with a tea party and even a Dalmatian.
The design featured a soft palette, bikes and plenty of outdoor shots. Even the ‘Anatomy of a Bike Basket’ was cute and rich girl geared (as shown by the black Amex and vintage gold Rolex watch). Books and gilded wrought iron doors were as much a part of the look as the clothes.
The Wildfox ‘Academy’ fall 2016 lookbook is a smorgasborg of possibilities, the looks fine as they are, but each piece capable of creating so many more. I myself prefer a darker aesthetic, but the more I looked at this lookbook, the more opportunities I found to incorporate a piece or two into existing outfits I have, or re-accessorizing looks that were already designed.
Wildfox did an excellent job, the yearbook styled fall 2016 lookbook was amazing, and every piece was given the opportunity to shine while helping promote the overall look and feel. The quotes were a nice touch as well – I’ll be using a few of those myself and hopefully wearing a few pieces from the Wildfox Couture 2016 collection in the very near future.

Vasic Collection Edite Mini Bucket Bag
Karl Lagerfeld’s ingenuity and brilliance shone brighter once again in Chanel’s Fall Winter 2016 Ad Campaign. Just when you thought Karl gave all his best for Chanel, think again for this particular campaign, his fashion magic is too spellbinding not to notice and laud.
Chanel chose Mariacarla Boscono & Sarah Brannon in their latest ad campaign. Channeling a fun, vibrant and youthful vibe, the images are in a collage form that doesn’t fall short of these adjectives.
For this particular ad, Chanel is featuring the New Peace Mini Flap Bag. We’ve featured this bag before and is now making a great splash in the fashion scene by being included in the Fall/Winter 2016 Collection.
Sporting a golden champagne color that is irresistibly gorgeous, this particular flap bag redefined how a shoulder bag should look like. The two hands with the peace sign ideally placed on the right side of the bag are the total eye candies! They have this shiny dazzling effect that gave the bag the elegance and allure that it deserves.
We’ve featured and talked about the Prada Cahier Bag a few weeks back but due to demand and its popularity, we’re going to take a closer look at it. Yes ladies, the Prada Cahier Bag up close and personal.
There’s nothing much said about this particular bag except for the fact that it not only looks elegant but also looks sturdy from the outside thanks to its leather and bronze hardware ensemble. Now what about the inside?
Aside from its box-like structure, the Cahier Bag has more to offer. Aesthetically speaking, it has an exquisite look to it. The bronze lettering logo in front and the lace closure on the front are the definite attention grabbers. The leather shoulder strap embellished with bronze studs also added a sense of spunk to it.
On the inside, it has two inside compartments and two inside pockets, including one with flap.
