Fall Winter 2013 Trend: Sheer, Sexy, See-Through, Micro-Mini

We continue our weekly countdown to the Top 5 biggest Fall Winter 2013 fashion trends straight from the runway.

Fall Winter 2013 Top 5 Fashion Trends from the Runway
Week #3 : Maximum Exposure

This fall winter, Burberry Prorsum brings a hot spring summer trend with a little twist on the fall winter 2013 runway show - underwear as pants with a see-through below the knee skirt.

Some celebrities have been seen rocking this trend on the red carpet but beware if you have bigger hips and shorter legs as all the attention on this lingerie inspired number would go to your waistline, hips and upper thighs.

Julien MacDonald and Marios Schwab go for the strategic placement of graphic patterns or designs that prevent that still manages to preserve the modesty of women who would dare to wear these irresistibly sexy dresses that show off the entire figure.

Saint Laurent's Fall 2013 runway collection had plenty of sexy fishnet and lace mesh detail tops, dresses and jumpsuits.

Other designers like Phillip Plein, Michael Lo Sordo and Nicole Miller had plenty of flesh to display with their see-through skirts, shirts and dramatic top to toe fetish zip dress.

Full on lace: Todd Lynn and Valentin Yudashkin used intricate lace designs to create a natural but eerily beautiful feel to bridal dresses and evening wear.

We saved the best for the last. Our top two favourites from the Fall winter Trend #3 Maximum Exposure has got to be Versace's patent leather double high split skirt worn with a bejewelled harness and Zadig & Voltaire's micro-mini red tweed shorts with eagle embroidery which makes a nice contrast to long wool coats and bulky winter wear especially when paired with over-the-knee boots.

American Music Awards 2013 Fashion Winners & Losers

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
British boy band One Direction looked as dull and drab as an English summer day in grey and black suits and shirts. One might wonder why Korean boy bands are more popular than Western ones these days.
Hint: Koreans have better fashion stylists.

Kesha makes a bold statement on the American Music Awards 2013 red carpet in a sexy thigh high split black dress with dramatic ruffles. She still manages to keep her funky image intact with her newly dyed rainbow hair.

The girl on the left looks like her skirt is too tight and her top and dress would be more "Mermaid World" than red carpet worthy. The girl on the left tries to hard to squeeze into her daughter's punk rock biker outfit and fails miserably. The house-help hairdo doesn't help either.

It's tough for girl groups nowadays to stand out from the crowd. Here is a girl band attempting to look as if they each have a different personality but the tragic truth is that is a tough image to built especially when all their clothes look like they came from the same store - Marks & Spencer.

Lady Gaga looks too athletic for a tiny runway dress from Versace as her breasts and arms look like they're ready to pop the dress. Her new "Rapunzel, Rapunzel let down your hair image" seems to go against her usual wacky sense of style and zany personality. We can only blame the Versace sponsorship for making Gaga look out of place.

It's surprising how Kelly Osbourne can don 87-year-old Queen Elizabeth's dress and still look evil whenever she smiles. Perhaps it's just the dress associated with monarchy.

Top Tip #1: Fashion No-No - never stand next to Nicole Richie unless you are as thin as a rid or a Victoria's Secret supermodel. Otherwise you'll definitely look f*t.

Rihanna looked hot on the AMA 2013 red carpet in an on-trend sequin bra top and high waist sheer maxi skirt. However, when she performed on stage, her flapping sting ray dress which looked perfect for Sleeping Beauty's Evil Queen Malificent, looked unflattering and out of place.

Emma Roberts wore a reflective garbage bag or body bag depending on your perspective to the AMA 2013 red carpet. Is this Lanvin?

Christina Aguilera had lost weight but not the ugly orange tanner addiction.

Katy Perry loves looking like an eccentric old British lady with badly permed hair that looks more damaged than Cheveux du jour. Even Helena Bonham Carter has better hair than Katy Perry.

Taylor Swift totally rocked a gold sequin mini dress by Julien MacDonald. The leggy 1.77m blonde took home four awards yesterday night. Ariana Grande looks saccharine sweet with the best hair style especially for her age. The 20-year-old matched her cute hairdo with a floor length red sequin sweetheart neckline evening gown.

Virginal in white: Miley Cyrus and Kendall Jenner looked radiant in all-over white. Miley took the plunge with a deep neck blazer and Kendall opted for a sexy cut-out dress that made her look Amazonian kudos to her model height and lanky figure.

Star Style: Rosie-Hungtington Whiteley's Sporty Gym Look

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Star of Marks & Spencer's Fall Winter 2013 campaign and lingerie collection, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was spotted outside a gym in Los Angeles in a sexy high-waist stripey cut-out sports legging pants, cropped sports bra top which she layered on with a chunky knitted snood and grey cardigan with rolled-up sleeves, toting a classic black Givenchy Antigona bag in one arm.

Many Hollywood celebrities and supermodels are often snapped on their way to or after a gym workout. Rosie sure knows how to transform gym wear into a sporty attire suitable for wearing out and about as well.

Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2013 - 8 Tips

Despite the fact that the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is an annual flesh fest with all the most gorgeous women in the world stripping down to their skinnies, here are 8 fashion tips we can take away from the Victoria's Secret 2013 fashion show.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

1) Jewels
Candice Swanepoel models a 10 million jewel encrusted bra. Dolce & Gabbana have rocked jewel studded handbags, accessories and even clothing. What's not to love about gemstone bling-bling all-over your body. Just make sure not to pick the tacky variety.

2) Over-the-Knee boots or OTK boots
Karlie Kloss looks like a crazy psychedelic butterfly as she parades down the runway in neon pink bra and underwear. This season, over-the-knee boots have made yet another comeback thanks to Stuart Weitzman and Kate Moss fueling the trend back gain as celebrities rush to don Christian Loubutin over-the-knee boots. 

Make your legs look longer and slimmer with a velvet or suede figure-hugging thigh high over-the-knee boots just like Karlie.

3) Corset control
Italian designers like Dolce & Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli and Versace have one thing in common - they popularized the sexy corset underwear as outerwear and this lovely body-shaping outfit is here to stay whether it's fall, winter, spring or summer.

Cara Delevingne struts in a corset dress for the VS fashion show. We're not too sure about her yellow dish-washing rubber gloves though.

4) Lovely Lace
Lace can be lovely romantic, sexy or elegant and chic depending on the cut, style, length and shape just as South African supermodel Candice Swanepoel demonstrates on the Victoria's Secret runway.

We can't wait to see more celebrities try out all-over lace evening gowns instead of the boring black or red satin ones.

5) Sparkle & Shine - It's Sequins time
Don't forget to add lots of glittery fun this Christmas in sparkly dresses, hoodies, shoes or accessories just like the VS models Elsa Hosk, Ming Xi, Karlie Kloss in her va-va-voom bodysuit and Taylor Swift in a sparkly Victoria's Secret dress.

6) Sporty spice
Sportswear looks like it'll be a permanent fashion favourite to stay for a long time with supermodel reaching cult celebrity status Cara Delevingne seen in sporty outfits not just on the Victoria's Secret fashion show runway but in real life (IRL) too. The British supermodel has a penchant for sweatpants, beanies, hoodies and loads more over-sized sporty fun wear.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic

7) British Invasion
From Union Jacks on Taylor Swift to bearskin officer outfits on Behati Prinsloo, the British invasion is rife this season ever since Saint Laurent made plaid and tartan cool again on the Fall Winter 2013 runway earlier this year. The fashion world has been taken by storm and star print punk rock cardigans, tartan military officer coats or tartan everything has been flying off the racks.

8) Tribal Boho-chic babe
French supermodel Constance Jablonksi shows off her tribal inspired wings, accesories and boots. Who doesn't love a seashell, feather and suede leather babe?

Fall Winter 2013 Trend: Sparkle & Shine, Glittery Christmas

We continue our weekly countdown to the Top 5 biggest Fall Winter 2013 fashion trends straight from the runway.

Fall Winter 2013 Top 5 Fashion Trends from the Runway

Week #2 : Sparkle & Shine
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Zadig & Voltaire's Fall Winter 2013 collection revisited metallic foiled sweaters in Christmas-sy colours like berry red and gold jacquard mini tube dresses that we absolutely love for that year-end party.

Menswear brand Whiz Limited updates the winter staple - puffer jacket in cool silver. This fall, you can really stand out from the sea of black and brown winter coats in this silver stunner.

Saint Laurent and Topshop Unique both opt for sequin jackets and jumpsuits as seen on supermodel Jourdan Dunn.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Paco Rabanne's chain-mail inspired slinky dresses are pretty and demure and definitely reflective under the party spotlights.

Our Number One pick for the best shiny and sparkly jacket for Fall Winter 2013 would have to be No.21 by Alessandro Dell'Acqua's cracked gold laminated shearling jacket as seen on the runway on Bette Franke.

Keeping warm yet looking cool at the same time continues to be a tough job judging by most winter-wear coats and jackets on the rack yet No.21 has scored gold in this department.

Celebrity Fashion Fail: Lady Gaga's Turban

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Everything but the Turban would have worked for this outfit Lady Gaga wore out and about. We dig her latest album Artpop which features more funky and experimental trance, techno & electro-pop beats.

The petite 27-year-old pop singer who stands at just 5' 1" (1.55 m) is often seen in ridiculously tall platform heels.

Her bag is from Versace and we're guessing her heels too. Lady Gaga has referenced Versace in one of her latest album's tracks and is probably the best walking sponsorship for the Italian luxury designer house.

Fall Winter 2013 Trend: Best Fur Coats

Starting this week, we'll begin our weekly countdown to the Top 5 biggest Fall Winter 2013 fashion trends straight from the runway.

Fall Winter 2013 Top 5 Fashion Trends from the Runway

Week #1 : Animal Instinct - All that's Furry and Fabulous

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
From 10 Crosby Derek Lam's python print calf-hair tall boots to Louis Vuitton's furry handbags, we absolutely adore fur on anything and wild animal prints.

Fox fur jackets make a big comeback this Fall Winter 2013 in updated shades of cheery blue and white instead of the usual brown and black as seen on Kenzo and Just Cavalli's Fall Winter 2013 runway show.

At DKNY, bold red, the hottest colour for fall was combined with sexy leopard prints to create an explosive and funky sweater dress.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Marni brought back the fur stole for Fall Winter 2013, only this time in XL extra long lengths. The use of the full animal in the form of farmed mega size foxes was present in Marc Jacob's sexy but macabre runway collection.

Matthew Williamson opted for a classic chic grey for their fur coat in rabbit.

No.21 by Alessandro Dell'Acqua's Fall Winter 2013 runway collection added a touch or rock and roll with a shaggy off-white fur coat which looked like a mix of rabbit fur and perhaps prized astrakhan lamb fur.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The best fur coats inspired by Eskimos was from the Moncler Gamme Rouge Fall Winter 2013 runway show. Male models even strut out on the runway in their seal print and patchwork fur coats with actual Siberian husky dogs.

Reem Acra's extra long black goat hair coat made the model looked like she was straight from The Matrix movie.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Marique Schimmel sizzles in this seasons hottest pink fox fur coat from Saint Laurent's Fall Winter runway show. The pink fur coat coupled with swarovski crystal studded tights, micro-mini underpants shorts and ankle biker boots is the perfect grunge rock look this fall.

Topshop Unique and other high street fashion brands choose turkey feathers as a cheaper alternative to expensive fur.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

French label Zadig & Voltaire demonstrates how to make a plain brown fur coat look all rock and roll with a sequin skinny scarf and purple deep V-neck satin tie-waist dress. It's all about the different lengths and layering that make simple pieces come together to form a unique look.

Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013: Lady Gaga

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Lady Gaga stole the show at the Glamour Magazine 23rd Women of the Year Awards by dressing up as her long lost evil twin John Galliano. 

Her Elizabethan white powdered face and 17th century inspired giant periwig was unfitting or befitting of the event depending on whether extraordinary and inspirational women from different industries were honoured for their contribution to society or simply for being famous?

MTV EMA 2013 Celebrity Fashion Flops

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Singer Elie Goulding is only 26. However at last night's MTV EMA 2013 awards, the British singer went bare faced to the awards which revealed plastic surgery work on her cheeks. It looked as if it was too painful to smile and Elie had to half-grin. No amount of nakedness including her see-through lace dress could bring sexy back to this young pop singer.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

23 year old Australian hip hop artist Iggy Azalea wears a stunning black dress with a bandage top and high split up the thigh. Although her dress was designer, no amount of money could buy the "class" she exuded through flashing her fanny.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Katy Nanny or Katy Perry is 29 yet she chooses to dress like the Queen of England sans the hairband. Katy Perry needs to get some fancy hats and white gloves to perfect that quintessentially British royal granny look.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Laura Whitmore who hosted the MTV EMA 2013 looks like she's wearing a folded paper napkin as the top front and back part of her dress flaps out.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Miley Cyrus looks like she's trying to hard to be black as she wears a dress with Tupac and Notorious BIG paired with Tom Ford Fall Winter 2013 runway checkerboard prints boots that do no justice to her slim legs. What ugly over-the-knee boots.

How to Wear Velvet for Fall Winter 2013

I enjoy making things complicated - What I mean by that is mixing and matching different styles and simply having fun with fashion. I am wearing a blue velvet dress as a top, faux patent leather leggings, a military style inspired camouflage print cotton jacket and shiny metallic gold studded sneakers.

What do you think of my tomoboyish yet girly look?

Blue velvet cut-out detail dress (Minkpink), Camouflage print military style cotton jacket (Lowry's Farm), Mustard suede schoolbag satchel (Barbara Bui), Faux patent leather leggings (LNA), Gold metallic studded sneakers (MK Michael Kors)

Marks & Spencer Christmas 2013 Holiday Campaign



It's all Magic & Sparkle this Christmas with Marks and Spencer's beautiful depiction of a magical fairy tale-like Christmas that makes viewers think about their childhood in a star-studded, well-directed whimsical short film starring supermodels David Gandy, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and veteran actress Helena Bonham Carter. 

Using clever popular cultural references to the recent movie "The Wizard of Oz (2013)", Helena Bonham Carter appears in a genie-like green smoke form and makes witty remarks about Rosie Hungtington-Whiteley's fashion classic - cherry red stilettos, capturing not just the older target market but the younger audience as well.

What do you think of Marks and Spencer's Christmas 2013 campaign?

Celebrity Fashion Fail: Rita Ora's Feather Dress

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Dear Rita, 


From your Halloween inspired DIY baby chicken costume down to you pale lips, bleached blond hair which pretty much makes you look like an anemic or a washed out like a bad vampire movie stunt double (the unfortunate vampire that burns in the fire at the start of the movie).

The real culprit behind Rita Ora's fashion fail would be the designer's behind Marchesa - Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig whose feather horror frock should have been reserved for a KFC mascot at a kid's birthday instead of the BBC Radio 1 Awards red carpet.

Remember if you need a stylist, Unlikely You is here.

Yours Truly,

Jyun

Star Style: Rebel Wilson's Tartan Trendy Look

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Comedian and actress Rebel Wilson makes our Saturday Star Style list as she rocks the punk rock trend in this season's hottest print - the Tartan. She pairs her tartan pants with studded ballerina flats, a statement T-shirt with a giant feline on it. To top things up, she threw on a bright cobalt blue blazer and scored an instant win for being the most stylish comedian in Hollywood.

Readers, if you are afraid of mixing colours in your daily outfit, just remember how this Australian chick rocks this easy laid-back casual yet stylish look.
