I Love Candy Coco

I know. I should just make this a Coco Rocha fansite already. It’s a sick obsession but I can’t stop! I simply luurrrve Coco. Why? Well, she’s gorgeous and she’s Canadian. But she also has a personality that translates into her work whether it’s in pictures or on the catwalk. In fact, she is so charming that www.style.com has hired her to work as a host on the video section of their website! Here is the fabulous Coco in the September 2008 issue of Vogue. By the way, those purple Chloé booties she’s wearing are INCREDIBLE.

A Package from Vogue

Like they did last year, Vogue sends out special editions of the September issue to FoV (Friends of Vogue) that gives it that extra-special-something. The mag comes in a clear plastic carrying case complete with handles so it looks like a purse. The cherry on top are the little bookmarks attached to pages with fall’s must-haves. Hrumph. I feel stupid for wanting the special treatment because really, it’s just a frickin’ handle attached to the issue that makes it different and you’ll never actually use it. But still… I want it.

P.S. Don’t you love the “Caution” and heavy lifting stickers on the box? Fashion and humour are always a great combination.

Vogue gets in the spirit of the Olympics and puts a couture twist to various sports in its new issue. The editorial, photographed by Steven Klein, features a bevy of models hanging around a pool in pretty fantastic swimwear including Jessica Stam and Caroline Trentini (who looks alarmingly dark). Now if only Michael Phelps was in here…

When Anna Wintour loves something, she’s not afraid to show it. Earlier this year, she wore the same Prada dress to at least three different events. Of late, the Vogue editor’s new favourite is a Carolina Herrera shift dress that has been modified from the resort collection. Again, she’s worn it on three seperate occasions – the Ferragamo show in Milan, to Wimbledon, and a few days ago at the Chanel couture show. You have to give her kudos for donning the same outfit multiple times – afterall, this is a woman who has unlimited access to clothes. Personally, I love the Carolina Herrera dress and it is very flattering on her. I am the same as Anna; when I fall in love with something, I fall hard. See? We have many things common with one another… Anna, please give me a job at Vogue!

Let’s just get one thing out of the way. Sean Avery is a prick. As a huge hockey fan (go Canucks!), there have been more than a few times that I wanted to reach into the TV and punch his smirking face. For those who are unfamiliar with hockey, let’s just say he doesn’t ever keep his mouth shut and is known in the National Hockey League as a “pest”. Off the ice, he doesn’t have the most pristine reputation either, particularly since he was recently busted as a client of the brothel, Maison de L’Amour. Apparently, his name and number were in Madame Kristin Davis’ little black book under the $500 client category. Dirty boy.

However, I have to admit that I’m kind of intrigued at his sudden interest in fashion. It’s a little laughable but you have to admire his effort. At least he’s not out there chasing young Hollywood starlets (ex’s include Rachel Hunter, Elisha Cuthbert, and Mary-Kate Olsen), hoping to get more papparazzi lenses on him… well, he’s probably still doing that but at least he’s got a day job during hockey’s off season!

I am pretty jealous that he gets to go to ALL the couture shows next week in Paris – not the standard treatment for regular Vogue interns. When style.com spoke to him about the trip, he said, “It looks like I’m going to all of them. Which is exciting. It doesn’t get bigger or better than the Paris couture, right? … The Chanel Show. From what I’m told, that’s the show that gets the most ridiculous.”

Lucky bastard.

This is for my boyfriend who thinks Chanel Iman is “hot”. New York Magazine recently interviewed the young model and I particularly enjoy the “candids” of Chanel on the website’s slideshow. As for rumours about her nabbing the cover of Vogue Italia all-black issue, word is that she may share the cover with Iman.

Kapow! Bam! Zoom! Those were the inspirational outfits I looked for at this year’s superhero-themed Met Ball but I was sadly disappointed. While there were notable efforts from a select few, the majority played it safe. 

Best Dressed 

Zac Posen blew everyone else out of the water with his Clark Kent/Superman-inspired outfit, which happened to be my favourite of the night. He took a risk and it paid off. Not to mention he looked gorgeous. What a hero!

Christina Ricci was the belle of the ball as a chic wonderwoman in Givenchy. Her outfit was by far the best representation of the spirit of this year’s gala. Both fashionable and appropriate for the superhero theme, Christina was a knockout in her pink and red confection.

Did Ashley Olsen remind you of her Full House days at the Met ball? I mean that as a compliment because she was radiant with little makeup and her dress was killer. I love the faux-catwoman claw marks on the side of her dress. Some have criticized her sister, Mary-Kate’s, outfit. To be fair, Ashley’s outfit is a lot more risk-free whereas Mary-Kate really went for it and I actually liked her dress. The only thing that bothered me was her posture. If she stopped stooping like the crazy cat lady on the Simpsons, she would have outshined Ashley. Someone book her a lesson with Ms Jay.

Chanel Iman was exquisite in a swirly 3.1 Philip Lim dress complete with a chunky gold belt. Was the giant accessory doubling as a chastity belt as well? Her career is about to take off as rumors circulate that the young model swiped the cover of Vogue Italia‘s all-black issue although some say the prize actually belongs to Jordan Dunn.

Caroline Trentini in vintage Thierry Mugler was a cool batgirl. I especially liked the model’s dark eye makeup and the swoopy outlines of her dress.

Naomi Watts reprised her role in King Kong in a classic white dress. Although her ensemble is not the most original, I give her points for channelling a damsel-in-distress-look. I’m just not sure if that’s the image she wants to project.

How much do you hate Gisele Bunchen? I mean her boobs… her butt… that outrageously perfect body!!! We are not worthy! She didn’t stick to the superhero theme unfortunately, but she still managed to steal the show in her revealing Versace dress and she brought along a hot date, Tom Brady, who is very droolworthy himself.

Make fun of Anna Wintour all you want, but I thought she looked fantastic. Her custom-made Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld was a space-age treat. I mean, if people didn’t have fun with this, why bother going at all? I’m sure the Emmy’s will give you a venue for a nice, perfect, little black dress. Yawn.

The colorful sequins on Kate Bosworth’s vintage Chanel Haute Couture were breathtaking. Look at that detail at the bottom of her dress! Exquisite. And those shoes!!! I need to have her Pierre Hardy shoes. I will make one critcism: I hate blue eye shadow. When you’re Asian as I am, blue eyeshadow is like toxic waste and you stay away from that shit. Why? It makes you look like an I-love-you-long-time-for-one-dolla “masseuse”. I realize Kate is not Asian and she looks lovely but still… is it just me or does her face look a little tranny? Just a little?

Michelle Trachtenberg was the queen of vintage in a navy silk jersey top and gold skirt from Rare Vintage. I am a little undecided on this one. I really liked her outfit initially but the more I look at it, the more it reminds me of this boy in my elementary school who played one of the Three Wise Men in the Christmas play. Now I can’t get the image out of my head. Is Michelle really a Magi heading to Bethleham?

I love Coco Rocha (hometown girl!) so I am biased but I loved her in Pucci with Anja Rubik. The colors were a great pop amongst the satin purples, greens, and godknowswhat.

You really have to wonder what went wrong when Alberta Ferretti designed Jennifer Lopez’s dress because she did a super job with Diane Kruger’s spunky metallic dress. I especially covet her fuchsia Jimmy Choo shoes. Not to mention her exceptionally handsome date, Joshua Jackson! I always loved Pacey and I always will.

Worst Dressed

You know how I said Kate Bosworth looked a little tranny. Well, Victoria Beckham WAS a tranny. A post-operation one at that. Poor girl. She must feel so inadequate next to David Beckham. You’d think David would be kind enough to tell her that her foundation never matches the rest of her body. (It’s always a shade too pale for some reason)

There are only three words for Kimora Lee’s outfit: tetris gone wild.

Amanda Peet had the most tragic outfit of the whole night. It was horrendous and that has to be the ugliest headband in the history of headbands. This outfit is so terrible I actually feel sorry for her.

What the hell happened to the kick-ass Buffy we’ve all come to love? Sarah Michelle Gellar-Prinze was about as interesting as me answering the probing questions from the auditors who’ve invaded my office. Seriously.

Poor Rachel Bilson. Those bangs are so unfortunate it makes me want to cry. Please fire your hairstylist asap. For such a cute girl, it’s alarming how much she looks like a dog. As for arm candy, Hayden Christensen, I love him so I refuse to critique his outfit.

How disappointing was Dita von Teese’s dress? Did she realize that she is about two steps away from looking like Emmy Rossum? That’s not a good thing darling.
