The New Apple Watch Lands On The Cover Of Vogue

October 16th, 2014 by Fashion Staff

If you wondered if Apple’s newest venture in fashionable technology would be accepted by the fashion industry, your answer is here!

There are actually two mega stars on the cover of Vogue China’s November issue. There’s supermodel Liu Wen, one of the world’s highest-paid models and Victoria’s Secret star, and then on her left wrist, the Apple Watch.

Check out the cover shoot below, after all, it might be the frontrunner for the most wearable of the high-end techcessories we’ve seen so far.

 

apple watch

 

 

On the November Vogue China cover, the gold Apple Watch is styled with minimal accessories, and with its colorful interface, it definitely stands out and holds its own. Wen appears to be wearing the 18-karat yellow gold Edition Apple Watch, which features a red Modern Buckle Band. She’s also featured wearing other Apple Watch models on a spread inside the magazine.

The smaller 38-millimeter timepiece+ is outfitted with a thin red band to coordinate with the bold Ikat-style stripes on Wen’s Céline shirt dress, which earns it points for personalization — remember, this wearable broke from the one-style-suits-all camp with its collection of customizable, interchangeable bands. But what really wows us is its overall ability to fit right in with a cover-worthy ensemble.

 

 

According to Vogue, it’s definitely a step above many wearables on the market today, but could you see yourself wearing the stylish smart watch daily?  Share your thoughts on the Apple Watch and the cover below.

Sharing #StyleOn10 Moments With Iman Cosmetics and HelloBeautiful.com

September 18th, 2014 by Christen Rochon

Recently, I was asked by my good friend Ty of HelloBeautiful.com to spill the beans on my style and beauty secrets. Upon arrival we talked about the importance of beauty from head to toe as well as how to transform office chic looks into after work flyness. We laughed, danced to ratchet music and had a blast during the photo shoot for Iman Cosmetics.

Since I don’t have a typical office-wear wardrobe, (My real-life office wear consisted of a rainbow of Calvin Klein shift dresses and suits from The Limited.) I really enjoyed showing off my double-duty style and how I can take two very different office looks from daytime to night.

 

Office Wear – Day

Dress:  JoyTheStore.com

Cardigan:  Express

Necklace:  H&M

Watch: Michael Kors

 

One of my favorite pieces found over the pond was this lace and pleated chiffon dress I found in London a few summers ago. I love how the feminine elements of lace and chiffon paired with the baby-doll cut exudes “girly-girl” to the tenth power. I added a jeweled cardigan and my favorite jeweled accessories to the mix to complete this office favorite.

 

Office Wear – Night

Necklace: J. Crew

Leather Moto Jacket: H&M

Leggings:  20 Legz

Shoes: Christian Louboutin

In true “diva” form, the quickest way to turn a “sweet” look into a “fierce” look is to add leather baby! I paired my favorite leather leggings, Moto jacket from H&M and studded Louboutins to transform into a rocker-chic look perfect for Happy Hour or late night/date night fun.

Another way I love creating day-to-night looks is by adding (then removing) layers to compose an entire day of style using key pieces. I used my latest (and greatest) find from the Altuzarra for Target designer collection as the base for my second daytime to night look.

 

Office Wear – Day

Shirt:  Forever 21

Peplum Top:  Forever 21

I layered a double POP of neon green with a sheer collared shirt and peplum top. (You can never wear too much neon! #NeonMakesMeHappy) I really wanted to liven up this monochromatic moment in living color and bring it to life. (I could’ve easily substituted this librarian-inspired look with a classic white blouse and black sweater – but if I’m going to be a librarian then I’m gonna be the jazziest librarian you ever did see!)

 

Office Wear – Night

 

Altuzarra For Target

Dress:  Target

Shoes:  Forever 21

Night time, is the right time to shed the layers and take it all off! Once I removed the extras and added a red hot rouge lip, I’m left with this va-va-voom glam look, compliments of the Altuzarra for Target silky maxi dress.

These are just a few ways that I have fun with beauty and style from day to night. What about you? What are your must have pieces/accessories to create a polished look from day-to-night?
