Louis Vuitton ARTXFASH

Viva Glam Magazine 2

Louis Vuitton is admixing fine art and cool fashion in collaboration with artist Jeff Koons. The partnership–resulting in the new 51 piece Louis Vuitton “Masters” accessories line, reportedly was orchestrated by Delphine Arnault, daughter of LVMH CEO Bernard Arnault, and features iconic art–such as the Mona Lisa, or works by Titian and Fragonard, the handbags.
Vuitton claims the new line is “opening the museum to the world, and will promote followers to “experience the Old Masters in novel ways.” And since Koons is most famously known for his inflatable animal art installations, featured at The Broad–in Los Angeles, the line will also include bunny keychains, at his initials–in the Louis Vuitton monogram font–on the body of the bag, along with LV. Starting today, the collaboration will be featured in select Louis Vuitton stores, in addition to a pop-up in New York City.

Which item is your favorite from the Jeff Koons x Louis Vuitton line?

Hair Damage: Get it Fixed and Look Gorgeous!

damaged blondhair

Relying on too many high-heat styling tools, over-bleaching strands, or not using the correct hair products can damage the health of your hair.

Michael Canalé, “Celebrity Hair Colourist to the Stars”—known for creating knock-out, natural hues that are celebrity-worthy, is also a maestro at bringing distressed hair back to health.

Our Lives of Style Hair Colouring Expert: Michael Canalé, answers some of your questions this week and you will want to follow his sage advice—which will ensure you shine this summer.

Lives of Style: What can you do if a styling tool burns your hair and ends of your hair are fried?

Michael: First, you have to trim the length to match it up at the ends. You can also use my conditioner—Canalé SOFTEN, and also use Canalé NOURISH—my Vitamin Thickening Foam.

SOFTEN—the conditioner, contains a blend of natural oils and protective anti-oxidants—that is specially formulated to restore hair shine and luster, reducing breakage and bringing your best color to life.

NOURISH—the topical vitamin thickening foam, contains a high-levels of essential vitamins and nutrients that help to improve fullness, cuticle integrity and strength and works from the cuticle layer as promotes vibrant, natural hair growth. So you are really addressing the inside and outside of the hair.

One important thing to remember when using the vitamin thickening foam is that it is important to place it at your roots and not on the outer hair shaft, so that it can work at the cuticle layer.

I also recommend using my shampoo–CLEANSE, by Canalé, as it allows the foam to get to the follicle layer. The shampoo restores hair with natural cleansing agents, formulated to bring out color while extending the longevity of the pigment.

Lives of Style: For people who have over bleached how do you bring them back to normal? How do you protect the hair from getting over-processed?

Michael: You have to build the hair back up layer by layer as if you are creating a painting. You are essentially “creating a color.” For an example, I might use a warm golden color and then to build it up I might layer a golden brown over that—and then I might do another lighter golden highlight over that.

We have to put a foundation of color into the hair. I apply it to the root area of the hair—and then I can make it work beautifully. To create a natural, radiant hair color, I need to blend the color I’m creating with the original root color—and then it looks amazing.

Though denim on denim sounds like a tacky flashback from the early 2000’s, there is a chic way to still wear it in 2017. Thanks to Maje’s denim capsule collection, the double denim look doesn’t have to include a jean shirt with jean pants. Instead the collection includes versatile pieces that uses color blocking and patchwork of different denim shades on skirts, culottes, dresses, and jumpsuits! We are loving style blogger Chriselle Lim’s take on the trend with the Maje collection in the Valda two-tone denim jacket and the Jabla denim flared skirt. She also rocked the Patim sleeveless jumpsuit! How would you take on the denim on denim trend?

Wear-It Wednesday…

Chaos Magazine

Tired of wearing neutrals all the time? Well according to street style icons, wearing bold colors for every piece of your outfit can still be pulled off, as long as they are all part of the same color scheme. Something that has been trending lately is the mixing of colorful pieces that are in similar shades. This trend has often been referred to as tonal dressing or monochromatic dressing, and we are about to see it everywhere this spring and summer. So for example, if you are wearing a mint green dress, then pair it with a mint blue purse and white shoes to coordinate with the pale and cool color scheme. If you need ideas, just take a look at Solange Knowles’ fierce, red outfit from Paris fashion week that is giving us major inspiration! Are you ready to take on the monochromatic trend?

Trendy Tuesday…

Wendy's Lookbook

Ruffles have undeniably been going strong as one of the top trends of the year. However, not only has it appeared as detailing on off-the-shoulder tops and dresses, but it has also appeared on shoes! Which likely means that it will be one of the top shoe trends of the summer. Something that we love about the ruffle accent on sandals, slides, and mules is that it adds a very feminine touch in an unusual way. If you ‘re looking to add some ruffles on your feet, check out brands like Loeffler Randall, or even major retailers like Zara and Urban Outfitters.

Monday Madness…

calivintage 3

Forget the florals for spring. Try something unique and fresh like bold geometric prints, watercolor prints, animal prints, or even patterned graphic art! The key to staying away from the classic florals and stripes is to ease into it by incorporating one piece of bold prints with a muted piece, like a zebra print blouse with a black pencil skirt. One designer that is fully onboard with the bold and colorful patterns is Ellen Van Dusen who is known for her Dusen Dusen line, which of course includes a wide range of interesting abstract prints. And best part is, none of the pieces from her line will make you look like a crazy pattern lady since they are all chic and wearable.

Fun Friday

Though the celeb favorite clothing line, HVN by Harley Viera Newton has been out for almost a year now, it wasn’t until Selena Gomez was spotted in a sky blue, white floral printed slip dress at Coachella that everyone started noticing the popularity of the HVN brand. Turns out it’s not just Selena who has been into the carefree, cheerful, and vintage-looking prints, but celebs like Kelly Ripa, Jennifer Garner, Kate Mara, and Alexa Chung among many others also support the brand. Judging by how many of the celebrities are repeat customers, we’ll assume that the price range of $445 to $755 must be worth it. Look out for HVN in the next few years, cause we have a feeling that it will only get bigger.

pinterest white oval

Ever since fashion week, the retro oval sunglasses have made their mark on street style and social media, particularly in the color white amongst other bright colors. There’s something about the vintage 60’s shape that give style bloggers an instant pop in their outfits. And it’s not just seen by bloggers, but the oval sunnies have also been a hit with celebrities like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Kendall Jenner, and Zoe Kravitz. If these it-girls are into it, then we’re willing to give it a try. To cop this style, try the Lola sunglasses from Saint Laurent or the Parquet 50MM oval sunglasses from Oliver Peoples x The Row.

Denim will forever be a fashion staple, but the styles of denim will always evolve. This year, there has been a lot of experimentation on the hem line of the jeans, which has resulted in the statement hem craze. Right now, one of the top denim trends is the raw hem jeans. Something about the unfinished detail of the raw hem gives any outfit a suddenly laid-back look. Another denim trend this season is the frayed hem jeans. Bella Hadid was recently spotted in them and it made her look like a literal rockstar. So try the frayed hem if you’re looking for instantly cool vibes. For a fun and unexpected look, try the flared frill hem with strap heels or ankle boots for a unique take on denim that is sure to get some double-takes. Which denim trend are you excited to try?

After Weekend 1 of the Coachella Music Festival, celebrities and style bloggers alike have left us with a lot of fashion inspiration. Besides the usual glitter and flash tattoos, this year’s festival saw an abundance of mesh fabrics, crochet tops and dresses, jumpers, and some awesome leather jackets. One of our favorite looks is from Victoria Secret model, Alessandra Ambrosio who rocked an oversized Rolling Stones tee cinched with a belt, and a white and black leather jacket on top! And of course Vanessa Hudgens didn’t disappoint with a black crochet bra top, black denim shorts, and a long colorful kimono. With a boho chic setting and so many style icons in one place, it’s easy to get influenced by the desert fashion and to bring it into your own off-duty style. Which Coachella trend will you be donning?
