My Saturday night ritual began with some light entertainment tv from the American Idol 7 contestants and judges and one in particular that caught my attention was the opening introduction. Jenny from the block strutted her stuff in a very  revealing yet demure Catherine Malandrino dress in last nights show.

She certainly knew she looked fabulous in the gown as she posed alongside her male co-judges for the seventh season of the live performance show last night.

The dress has some very revelling aspects about it- that being a sheer net lace veil which bared cut outs of flesh her toned and buffed flesh to the world whilst stripes of  horizontal black leather covered the rest of her. To be fair, Jennifer Lopez had everything was hidden, heck you see less on any children’s advert these days. I thought she  was very elegantly put together and she combined the black dress with a smart Louboutin spiked heel and subtle understated jewellery. The dress was rather short but ultimately she sits behind a desk and you cannot see much else!

She has a good body so why not show it! I also think it looks much better on her than the model at the runway show. It also looks as though it had been altered to have been made a tad longer on the legs.

The Catherine Malandrino dress is from the 2012 collection, however after doing a quick search in the Malandrino store I happened to spot this gown

Mixed Pointelle Maxi Dress

Which has a lot of inspiration of the Jennifer Lopez dress- retailing at $600 the dress is the maxi version – and it is for those who want a similar look now!

Kim Kardashian seems to be taking a media break recently, at least from our eyes- we try not to blog too much on the Kardashian sisters simply because they don’t really do too much- but today is an exception.

Kim was spotted earlier the day before with suspecious red botox marks on her face as she left one of the best botox locations in LA- and it makes sense- she was heading out to the Valentino opening launch party on Rodeo Drive.

The 31, year old reality star turned up in a black and white dress by Lela Rose and it was rather demuour and sophisticated for what Kim usually wears.

Some may say boring but I rather like the gown, it has the right amount of intregue and confusion with its simple A shape body and skirt.

A real eye catcher with the pattern and it has been taken from Lela’s fall 2012 collection. The queen of reality was keen to show of her intense diet and twice a day workouts in the gown and it shows her work has paid off!

Having a look through Lela’s other collections really highlighted how awesome this womans designes are.

We loved the other monochrom dresses she had on the runway..

What do you think of the other dresses in the collection?

Rihanna is out in my town today -That being Central London promoting her latest venture into acting for her film Battleship which is due to hit cinemas sometime in May 2012. With it comes an entire new selection of fabulous fashion. The princess was spotted at a local area of 5 star hotel The Mandarin Oriental Hotel with her ultra slimmed physic that she has been working on for the release of the film.

She wore Alexander Wang pre fall 2012 dress which was a lovely shade of Green, deep and luxurious colour which we don’t often get to see, so a great choice really!

She has been a blond for a while now, and I have voiced the dislike of this colour but shes gone ultra blond today which (sort of) complimented the green of the dress!

Surprisingly enough it was very sunny in the capital (Yes it can be sunny in London) so Rihanna choose a pair of $220 sunglasses by Karen Walker “Number One” sunglasses from the summer 2012 collection. Karen is known for her unique styles and this one is no different- I am particularly loving the side arrows on the arms of the glasses!

The halter dress was a nice choice for a particularly warm day in the capitol- the satin material is perfect for her new svelte figure. Compared to the model I think the dress really comes alive on Rihanna. What do you think?

Of course she added some simple black Christian louboutin “Pigalle” pumps which gave the dress a rather sophisticated feel.

Just the day before Rihanna was spotted taking the tube through Waterloo station to catch up with Drake as he performed at the 02 in Greenwich. We love the fact she likes to be a bit controversial and I guess “normal” taking the tube with her friends- yes it caused a lot of commotion but she did it like a trooper! why not!

One of my favourite brands Christian Dior has just announced the launch of their latest expansion to their watch collection perfectly named Dior VIII Grand Bal. The luxury brand plans to release five more watches into the market consisting of a ceramic white, gold or black colour beautifully decorated and garnished with precious gems and sparkling bright colours.

The watches have a 38mm dial screen encrusted with 18 carat yellow gold hands and a 0.06 carat rose cut diamond crown alongside a sporty high tech black or white frame.

Each watch has exclusive features for example the 2nd modeel is a dazallling black watch has 60 baguette amethysts from Madagascar with a black bracelet alongside a black Atrina mother-of-pearl dial which is surrounded in 227 pink sapphires. Rather impressive!

Only details of the first three watches have been shared as of yet but we are waiting to see how amazing the final two will be- how does one choose one watch?

The new collection does look superb but having a quick look at the last collection which came out last autumn the watches are just as fabulous- there is a lot of choice so ensure you have a browse through to get the best possible watch that suits your personality and flare!

News just out from the creative hands of Pierre Hardy is that the designer is finally ready to release the Hermes miniature bags which will be the utmost luxurious bag of them all, yes that’s right- its hard to get more luxury in a bag than Hermes but the two seemed to have superseded themselves with the latest bag costing $1.9 million. Currently holding the record for the most expensive bag to date.

These particular Birkin/Hardy bags are a very slim collection with the team commissioning only 4 bags and taking almost two years to create, the bag boasts intricate handiwork alongside 1,160 diamonds and precious gold stones however they cannot really be called handbags. The rose gold Kelly bags are one of a kind in the fact that they are not large enough to carry much more than a pair of sunglasses so with such mini status and size how does this bag come with such a hefty price tag.

Well, the Hermes CEO Patrick Thomas couldn’t confirm either but they are more so to be considered as a jewellery piece or bracelets than traditional handbags and he also suggested he did not know who would buy the bags but joked that they would be needing two security guards!

In honour of the $1.9 Miillion dollar bag we would like to present a more traditional Hermes-

Classic leather and normal sized!

At the semi normal bag of $10,000 -HORAH!

I was recently given this lovely bottle of Chambord to review for the site to taste- on receiving the bottle I was DELIGHTED, however this is because I had mistakenly thought it was a lovely perfume- the bottle is incredibly delightful and is good enough to be a luxury perfume brand! So of course when I Carefully yet excitedly opened the wrapping and lid I was confused when I saw a spout and not the traditional perfume spritz- but hey at least I caught up in time so to not begin pouring on my neck!

Anyway I was instructed to  make this into a sweet cocktail by simply adding champagne.. not the hardest of cocktails to make and very hard to go wrong might I add but I felt very pleased with the outcome of this sweet champagne cocktail.

This is easily one of the nicest cocktails and could possibly be a substitute for Pimms in the summer after all its very fruity fresh and light.

Can be enjoyed at the races, at the park or even in the garden! its an awesome drink.

Beyonce has officially come out of hiding and is now been spotted walking the baby and what we have noticed is that her fashion has transformed to be more a relaxed and rather cool yummy mummy than her traditional sexy look she usually always goes for- which is great, she is embracing this time being a new mum and is doing well staying away from the 10 inch heels her feet are accustomed/subjected to.

Last week the Queen Bee was spotted out with the latest Carter in a rather urban looking outfit choosing sneakers and black woolly hat, sunglasses and a large overcoat very discrete whilst every inch of Baby Blue was covered in her baby wrap.

We have had a lot of request about her mega cool high top trainers / sneakers and we have managed to match them up with the shoes that a lot of celebrities have been wearing including Beyonce herself.

Beyonce’s $640/ £440 black suede sneakers by Isabel Marant have sold out since she has been snapped out in New York over the past few days. However similar colours of the shoe can be purchased from Mytheresa Barneys or Polyvore. Most shops have sold out but similar Isabel Marant sneakers are available..

 


beyonce's black sneekersThe singer has been spotted in the love on top music video wearing the shoes whilst she was in the early stages of her pregnancy – she teamed the sneakers with her now signature leotard and a gold sailor hat which worked well for the video keeping focus on the dance moves and not an over complex outfit and as usual her song was a hit.

 

beyonce's trainers in love on top videoOther celebrities that have given the casual look a try seem to be on the increase, could it be that flat shoes are becoming the new heel? Other than the recent videos Beyonce would never be caught dead in flat shoes so maybe they are the new heel.. (nah, I don’t think so either) but those that have tried it include the classically beautiful Anne Hathaway:

Alicia Keys is one to be very close with urban fashion so we would expect her in something such as these- here she sat with her Husband and son at a basketball game in a pair of the sneakers.

alicia keys isabel marant sneakersMiranda Kerr and son also had a pair of the trainers in red..

The great thing about the sneakers is that they come in a plethora of colours so you can pick one that suits you the most, black is most practical but if your like me and love a bit of colour go wild!

So after bumping into the Brian Atwood website I saw the fabulous shoes created by the Atwood team so becoming inspired this post will be showcasinga top 5 countdown from the latest collection.

Brian is a favourite for several celebrities from Eva Longoria and Megan Fox and you can see why- the shoes are hot!

5. So we have the Ammy– beautiful elegant piece- a work of art really! loving the simple black curl trim and gold stiletto heel and a peep toe which is great for showcasing the latest nail varnish! Perfect for spring summer and autumn and heck they look that good why not wear it in the winter!

4. Claudia Bis : This Golden gorgeous pump is number four on our list- every woman needs a pair of golden shoes be like Dorothy and sparkle in these pumps- these are even great for the office for the day when you want to stand out, why not just combine these with a black skirt suit fitted jacket and some gold shoes -Stand out statement shoes called Claudia Bis

claudia brian atwood3. MANIAC- is the name of these and thats exactly what they portray but in the sense of the cute high fashion maniac!

Clearly for the inner Barbie that all of us lovely ladies have inside (some deeper than others ) but again these could be a really pop out piece that can be added to a black pant suit or a colourful dress but for real impact these patent Manic’s look great with something subtle- may as well let the couture do the talking whilst your doing the walking!

brian atwood maniac pink shoes2. ALESHA another pink choice- I do love the bright coloured shoes these ones are a bit subtle compared to the maniac’s. I am really loving the platform on these shoes paired with the chunky heels- these would be great for a night out added stability in the heel makes these FAB-U-LOUS!

1.Abba

These black pumps are so versatile can be worn with anything- elegant.

The cream outline adds a lovely trim.

Megan Fox is out hitting the scene for her promotional tour for her latest film ‘friends with kids’ which is soon to be out on the 9th March- on this tour she happened to stop by on the ‘Tonight show with Jay Leno’

megan fox cosmo magazineOpting for something sharp and rather relaxed she picked a lovely skirt from the 2012 Dolce & Gabbana Spring collection.

The skirt slightly above the knee accentuated her legs and was the perfect mix of glam and sophistication- the metallic skirt a blend of gold silver and white with diamond sparkle pleats.

She added a white sleeveless simple black trim top to the skirt which sat perfectly on the waist and went rather natural with curly long locks which went well with the toned down look.

Megan has been seen on many times in Brian Atwood shoes so this was no different- she picked a nice black pair of ankle tied pumps with the skirt, alongside her Irene Neuwirth Jewels

megan fox black shoes

The actress teamed her skirt with a white sleeveless top with black satin ties.

We quiet like the skirt here at Sharp N Chic- its pretty, it looks very detailed and with the summer coming up here in London & New York this would be a lovely choice for a cool drinks with the girls afternoon lunch look- LOVE IT!

I personally am not a huge fan of Ms Fox- I see her as a bit of an over hyped celebrity but she came across really nice in this interview and she looked cute-the girl next door look and its good to see she has put on some weight- good job don’t you think..
