Kim Kardashian, the wife of Kanye West, was one of the most stunning/shocking/surprising woman in 2014. NO LIES! She was covering lots famous magazines, that got a lot of public attention because the pics weren’t simple or standard. Some of the most scandalous were VOGUE April issue in where she and her husband appeared with wedding stuff or September issue of PAPER magazine, for which Mrs. Kardashian posed nude. What else? She did a lot of else. She went to watch loads of luxury fashion shows, in some of them Kim took her 1-year-old daughter North, for instance, at Paris fashion week all 3 Kardashians appeared in most of the shows. She was called crazy, some people started to hate her, the other – love her, but like it or not, she was under paparazzi cameras most of the year. Kim has her style and her body. Provocative, creative, stylish, always requiring attention. She is Kim Kardashian.
New Best Friends
Clap clap! New best friends: Karl&Cara. Different age, different gender, different style. But something makes them match each other. Yes, dear readers, Chanel and fashion in general. Cara Delevingne refused suggestion to walk on the stage during VS Fashion show, but instead she modelled and advertised Chanel clothes in December. K. Lagerfeld and C. Delevingne worked together a lot this year and at all don’t you think they are similar in some way?..
The Influence of 70’s
From Spring 2014 collections we can clearly recognise the return to 70’s. Fashion industry’s favourite decade does even more impact in the Fall collections of 2014. All fashion houses and designers were affected by 70’s spirit this year, but the biggest influence of sophisticated, blossoming and luxurious years. Prada, Gucci, Louis Vuitton and also Michael Kors collections shows uncontrollable energy, which reflects enthusiastic and rising years.
Wisdom appears in the easiest things. Be sexy. Be classy. Be simple. By comfortable. YES, it’s about what was super popular last year: t-shirts (black/grey/white, especially), baggy boyfriend jeans (preferably, with some or more than some holes), trainers (“Nike AirMax” became super popular) and… You are ready to go! Morning coffee, lecture, work, lunch, dinner, aperitif, club, fashion show, cinema… Whatever! This style is called #Normcore, coming from the word normal, and there is no other easier word to explain the minimal and classy style combination of 2014.
Nude in Crystals
Do you still remember who received Fashion Icon Award at 2014 CFDA Awards? Who climbed on the stage with 230,000 Swarovski crystals decorated dress? Basically, the dress was made only from crystals and Rihanna was the ONE. She only used pink fur store to hide a little bit of her body, not because she is shy, but the reason was to complete the look and not to look vulgar. In conclusion, Rihanna is Rihanna and she looked amazing.
