Some brands just don't keep an eye on the trends, they make the trends. With everything they do, people all over the world are copying their genius ideas, but in matter fact there is just one brand who does it good. In my opinion, Acne is such a brand.
Their designs are innovative and modern, but at the same time also classic and timesless. Millions of people are dying to buy a pair of real Acne boots, but only a few of them can afford these beautiful pieces of design. Therefore, a lot of brands are taking Acne as their inspiration to create a fabulous collection. One of those brands is Bronx, which fall/autumn 2011/12 collection is so awesome that you have to love it. I can't wait for this collection to be in stores this autumn!
Sometimes, dreams have to stay dreams in order to feel the desire.
This is what I call a customized outfit. Once in a while, I jump into my closet to see which pieces I do not wear anymore, but which are still nice and wearable.
This time, I was dying to buy some demin shorts, but I couldn't find the rightone. So I took my scissors and cut some of my old jeans which I do not wear anymore. And there you go: now I have plenty of denim shorts!
The same story is for these brown socks I wore with this outfit. Last winter, I bought some dark brown tights, because I thought I needed them. But actually I never ever wore them. And ever since I was searching for overknee socks (which I think are hard to find), I cut the upper part of these tights and now I have overknee socks. How simple is that?
You don't need money to create, you just need a little fantasy.
It's kind of late and I know the Cannes Film Festival was already weeks ago, but ever since I couldn't find the time to post this before and I reallyreally wanted to share this with you, I have to do it now! So here are my favorite looks of one of the most important film festivals of the year.
A lot of celebs chose for white or light colors this year and I have to admit that all my favorite dresses are also in white or light colors..
Kristen Dunst not only won Cannes' Best Actress, but also shone in Chanel Couture at the 2011 amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS Gala. It's sure she's a die-hard Chanel fan and this time, she choses for a Couture dress in soft pink. Gorgeous!
As always, Doutzen Kroes looks stunning. She's wearing a split-thigh dress by Emilio Pucci at the premiere of the Beaver. It's simple, but she simply doesn't need more to look as good as she does here.
Rachel McAdams wore a flower embellished white dress by Maxime Simoens Spring 2011 HC Collection at the Midnight In Paris photocall. The nude platform peep-toe pumps are perfect with this dress. She does it good!
Elizabeth Olsen (the younger stepsister of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen) at the Martha Marcy May Marlene photocall. She wore this beautiful dress from her sister's The Row line. The dress is so magnificent that it doesn't need heels: the sandals go perfect with this look, even at such a photocall.
Ever since I saw the L'air campaign by Nina Ricci. I discovered a new supermodel: Noreen Carmody. I think she's such a beautiful and tiny woman and with her bone structure, big eyes and new haircut you can say she looks a bit like 60's model Twiggy. A pure and soft beauty who takes this campaign to a higher level.
Ashley Olsen wears vintage Christian Dior Haute Couture, Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry and a Judith Leiber clutch. She looks gorgeous and really sophisticated in this dress. She gots it all!
Jessica Alba in showing her gorgeous belly by wearing a Ralph Lauren Collection gown.
Mary-Kate Olsen is stealing the show with wearing this beautiful dress by vintage Givenchy Couture, Van Cleef & Arpels and David Webb jewelry, a Judith Leider clutch and Nicholas Kirkwood shoes. I love her being so different from the rest. She's my all-time favorite!
Miranda Kerr looks stunning in a Marchessa dress and clutch, Harry Winston jewelry and Nicholas Kirkwood shoes. Great accessoires: one of my favorites is hubby Orlando Bloom.
Looking back at the month April gives me a smile on my face. The sun is heating up the Netherlands again, so I will be at the beach a lot. My first visit to the beach this year was pretty cold, but because of this I could make beautiful pictures in stead of laying down and tanning.
I also went to some events and partied all night long.
I hope April brought a lot of happiness and luck for you too and that May will be as good or even better than April.
