Lamborghni's Pair of Carbon-Fiber Stilettos

Tonino Lamborghni came up with a design for potential stilettos. The heels are modeled after the Gallardo Superleggera and designed by Modo illustrator Tim Cooper.It's a high heel sexy object of desire for fast driving female fashionistas! I'd love to put them on! And why not?

Home on Wheels - Best Caravan Interior Design

Many times on this blog I emphasized how much I love to travel. And I really do! Since I've moved to Argentina, road tripsbecame my favourites. Car travelling gives us the flexibility of deciding our own route and travel times. We can also stop off wherever we want and it gives us the opportunity to see and experience more. In our times, we loose so much of the magic of travelling, that otherwise we would have experienced if we hadn’t travelled by plane.

I've never been a great fan of caravan holidays until recently, when I came across with this wonderful caravan manufactured by Caravanolic, a Spanish architectural studio. I was smitten with it's original interior design, functional and modern yet personal and cheerful. I dare to say it looks like taking your home for a ride! I love it!

The King’s Speech starring Van Cleef & Arpels

The King’s Speech won 4 Academy Awards 2011. It’s a British historical drama directed by Tom Hooper and written by David Seidler It is a wonderful movie and I enjoyed watching it a lot. There is however a scene that increased my enthusiasm more than others: it was during a party where Wallis Simpson (performed by Eve Best) appeared wearing the unforgettable aubergine dress. I literally hold my breath when I saw it! The draping around her neck and the fabric draped from shoulder to shoulder in a low scoop revealing her bare back and a gorgious Van Cleef & Arpel's Zip Pompom necklace. 'King's Speech' costume designer Jenny Beavan, a nine-time Oscar nominee, did a great job. The whole outfit including accesories (especially gold and diamond set Cadenas watch, and already mentioned diamond Zip necklace) represented the sophisticated, chic and timeles style… and timeless is why I truly enjoy fashion.

Givenchy Spring 2011 at the Oscar Night

Although I am not the biggest fan of the Oscar Night, what I truly enjoy is the red carpet celebrity arrivals. It's a glamorous night designed for gossiping, fashion commenting and showing off! I always have my own best dress winner. This year Cate Blanchett's dress was definitely my favorite. She was wearing Givenchy Spring 2011 Couture and looked sensational. I googeled the Givenchy collection and learnt that one dress,  with hand-dyed and hand-cut matte sequins, took 4,000 hours of handwork to assemble! The dress was made of lilac chiffon with pearls details and with shocks of bright yellow in the back. Sensational combination!
The collection’s designer, Riccardo Tisci, was inspired by Japanese robot toys and Kazuo Ohno, the legendary Japanese Butoh Dancer. It’s goes beyond fashion. It’s a masterpiece!
