Ulyana Sergeenko Haute Couture Spring 2013

I recently stumbled across a new-to-me designer:  Ulyana Sergeenko is the 32-year-old wife of Russian insurance billionaire Danil Khachaturov.  She is a celebrity in her home country and a big hit in the blogosphere which doesn’t come as a surprise considering her beauty.  Her first collection debuted in Winter 2011.  Below is the designer.

Pretty gorge, huh?  Her Spring 2013 collection, shown at Paris Fashion Week, is inspired by epic civil war era romance Gone with the Wind, one of my favorite movies as a little girl.  Scarlett put me on a lot of game back in the day…still breaking hearts y’all!  Below are a few of my favorite pieces from the collection.  To view the entire line, follow this link to Fashionologie’s coverage:  http://www.fashionologie.com/Ulyana-Sergeenko-Couture-Spring-2013-Pictures-26957855.

Rihanna Fenty Fashions

Chameleon to the fullest, Rih Rih has switched up the locks again.  She’s rocking the flowing ombre strands that I am so very nostalgic for…and the half-shaved head look is carrying into this post as well (see previous post Cassie’s Curls).  How backwards that Cassie started a trend before Rihanna…

She debuted the look in the first photos and then lightened it up and raised the color line in the second shot, taken about a week ago.  Love Love!

In other Rihanna news, it’s been public knowledge for a few months that she is working on a fashion collection for British brand, River Island, but she’s recently announced that she’ll be debuting her collection at London’s fashion week (my favorite of all the fashion weeks, by the way).  It totally makes sense considering the brand she’s collaborating with is British, but more importantly, the edgier street style that rules London fits right along with Rihanna’s personal aesthetic and flava.  I featured a picture of the below jumpsuit on the blog a while back and had no idea that it was a Rihanna original.  Here it is again…her own design:

I wasn’t familiar with the River Island brand, but after some research…I’m a new fan.  Here are few of my favorite items from their sites Spring 2013 preview (they aren’t advertised as being Rih’s designs)

I’m bonkers for the last shirt!  If only I could figure out how to mentally convert euros to dollars…If you’d like to check out River Island follow the white rabbit:  www.riverisland.com

I stumbled across this extremely informative and comprehensive guide to Spring 2013 nail polish trends from the peeps over at The Citizens of Fashion.  I don’t know about y’all, but my toes are tired of hibernating for winter and I’m itching for a mani/pedi.  Check out the story here: http://thecitizensoffashion.com/2013/01/21/spring-2013-nails-new-textures-and-finishes/.
