Victoria Beckham: Fit & Flared

We’re trying very hard not to melt into a puddle of goo upon seeing Harper’s delicious chub cheeks and legs, but luckily the trance that Victoria’s gorgeous flare leg jeans have put us in is more powerful. Anyone can wear these jeans and it just so happens that we told you how earlier this year. Let’s revisit; Get The Look: Flare Leg Jeans. Image via Bauer Griffin.

The last time we discussed Irina Shayk, we discussed her bum and you lot were none too happy about it.

We’re happy to report that she chose to cover up her controversial rear for the 2011 Doe Fund gala in NYC last night and she did so in grand fashion. Cristiano’s main squeeze wore a dress from Roberto Cavalli’s 2011 Pre-Fall collection.

She’s looks pretty amaze, yes? It’s styled lovely, she’s not orange, her boobs are under control, and her hair and make-up is spot on. It’s really all we ask for from a WAG at a formal do.

Are you happy with this, Kickettes?

Lads In Mags: Hidetoshi Nakata In GQ Japan

Retired footballer, fashion star and all-around super hottie Hidetoshi Nakata is on the cover of GQ Japan’s December 2011 issue and he’s giving us a come hither stare that is making our legs start to walk towards him on their own.

Our complete and total inability to read Japanese has hindered our chances of telling you what he shares in the interview, but we do know that he’s wearing a look from Balmain Homme’s A/W 2011 collection. Hot right?

We can’t really see the men in our lives going for extreme layering like this. Mostly because it’s a challenge to get them out of sweats or shorts. Perhaps some sweet encouragement and gentle bribery would do the trick?

What do you think girls? Is Nakata making you weak in the knees? Would you want your fella to risk a perspiration nightmare to look like a Balmain dude?

Get The Look: Nagore Aramburu’s Colorblocking

As a trend, colorblocking is kind of always in. Its popularity just waxes and wanes. Luckily we’re in a waxing phase now and colorblocking is bang on trend, as the kids say.

Nagore’s lovely little confection of a Gucci dress* is a perfect example of how to colorblock correctly. The key is to pick no more than three colors of the same hue family (brights, pastels, etc.) and layer them up. Simple, right? Let’s build some colorblock looks.

Paris Fashion Week: The End

Fashion month has finally concluded and we’re happy that the heavy hitters of Paris were there to take us out. And take us out they did – mostly by boat. In addition to the trends of pastel colors and Jazz-Age silhouettes we saw emerge in New York, London, and Milan, another became apparent in Paris – the life aquatic. It was literal at Chanel, where Karl Lagerfeld sent out sea shell shaped bags and Givenchy where Riccardo Tisci adorned his girls in shark fin necklaces. It was more subtle at McQueen where Sarah Burton’s girls appeared to be covered in a luxurious algae.

Picking a favorite look from the Alexander McQueen collection was impossible. So much so that we just closed our eyes and pointed to one and that’s what you’re looking at above.  In the three main seasonal collections that Sarah Burton has designed since the death of Lee McQueen, this has felt the most McQueen to us. Each look was accompanied by a haunting head covering and the exquisite detailing that is synonymous with the designers. We’re struggling to think of any other words to describe this collection. Go look for yourself. Then go look again, wait a little while and look at it again. It’s that good.

Here are the rest of our WAG-favorite designer looks from Paris.

Now this is more like it.

Last night Sylvie van der Vaart attended the Goldene Henne broadcasting awards in Berlin, Germany wearing a look from Gucci’s Fall 2011 collection. She paired it with a Gucci clutch, green satin heels, and a long blond ponytail.

We think she looks absolutely gorgeous in this. We love this Gucci collection and we’re so happy to see a WAG in one of the looks! It’s sexy in all the right places and we love her hair extensions, even if they were only for this night.

Our only bone to pick is with the shoes. There was no need for them to be so matchy-matchy. If she was intent on a green heel, Gucci’s runway shoes would have been a much better choice. But carry on, Sylvie! You’re looking fab lately.

Milan Fashion Week: Best Of The Best

We love highlighting new designers, but Milan Fashion Week is all about the fashion dynasties. The likes of Gucci, Pucci, Prada, and Fendi are legendary for a reason and it’s because they always deliver new, exciting, trend-setting collections.

Gucci has always been one of our favorites and creative director Frida Giannini has never disappointed. After Fall’s very ’70s look, the Gucci girl will be headed to the Jazz Age for Spring. Following Marc Jacobs’ drop-waisted flapperesque dresses, Giannini continued the trend with a number of dresses in the same silhouette in green, white, navy, and gold covered in sequins and beading. Our favorite is the strapless number above that just screams glamour. As with all Gucci collections, this one is a red carpet magnet and we can’t wait to see some A-listers rock these looks in the Spring.

Our other Milan favorites are after the jump and they are lovely!

Irwin & Who? Exactly.

Coleen Rooney attended Sheree Murphy’s going away party in Liverpool last night. We love her navy blue skater dress with leather panels on the sides and when we discovered it was by London designer Irwin & Jordan we were both excited and perplexed. A new designer!

Let’s find out more about her, shall we?
