Angelina Jolie Signed Deal with Louis Vuitton

Angelina Jolie hasn’t done many fashion campaigns throughout her life. As far as we know she has represented clothing line St. John for 3 years and the Japanese beauty company Shiseido for a while. However, these two are relatively small deals in comparison to Jolie’s new venture – she’s become the face of Louis Vuitton.

The worldwide ad campaign is to be print only and will be marketed around the world. The campaign that is to launch in summer will earn Angelina Jolie approximately $10 million.

The photographs will be taken by renowned photographer Annie Leibowitz within the next couple of weeks.

Angeline Jolie will follow in the footsteps of other celebrities, including Madonna and Jennifer Lopez.

The Celebrity Craze About the Spring Leather Dress

The leather is back on the fashion scene, this time in a different and unusual presence. The leather dress is the new Hollywood look so don’t be surprised if you see your favorite star wearing a small leather dress in a vivid color.

Actually the black leather dress isn’t as fashionable as it is the neutral colored leather dress. The biggest fashion designers have included this amazing outfit to their latest spring collections.

The dress is suitable for office wear, as well as for a first date outfit, a romantic dinner, a party night or just a casual walk.

The leather has always been a universal fabric, but the colors are more than provocative this spring. The versatile leather has the ability to be combined with almost any other color, and in the mean time it fits all kind of accessories.

The new craze in the fashion is the brightly colored leather euphoria that had gripped the world in the 80’s.

The comeback of the leather dress isn’t something surprising. The simple, the better: that’s the motto, when it comes to the leather dress silhouette.

The white leather coats are also very fashionable, so if you want to achieve a more glamorous look, go for a white leather coat.

In case you are a fan of the classics, go for short black leather jacket combined with mini leather dress in desert colors. Don’t limit to the standard leather jacket or accessories, and choose different colors and shapes.

The leather garments are more than modern, especially for stylish women that want to be modern, but yet classy. In case you want something bold, go for red leather. It can be a dress or leather trousers, but don’t hesitate to wear this unusual outfit. It will bring certain sophistication in your wardrobe.

The leather gloves and hats are part of this extravagant look too, so go for them, especially if they are in colors such as blue, green or yellow.

Fergie Performs in Lego Dress at 2011 Kids’ Choice Awards

Fergie has never been a girl who wears ordinary clothing, especially on stage. So, of course we expected to see something eccentric on her performing at 2011 Kids’ Choice Awards. And thanks God, she didn’t disappoint. The Black Eyed Peas singer wore an interesting mini dress made totally from small Lego bricks – black and bright pieces. This was amazing!

Selena Gomez’s craziest look to date – blue princess

It’s Selena Gomez as we’ve never seen her before – absolutely unrecognizable in the all-blue masquerade-ish ensemble. Selena Gomez donned a bright blue dress, sequined stockings, blue peep-toes, fancy blue hat, black wig, blue body art, blue eye make-up and neon blue lipstick to celebrate blogger Perez Hilton’s birthday over the weekend.

Selena definitely took the blue dress code to another level and her look is so weird it’s hard to pass it by unnoticed. The girl knows how to turn heads.

Julianne Moore: Consummate Style

Julianne Moore is always a standout on the red carpet, especially with her unmistakable fiery-red mane. This awards season, Julianne has been getting a lot of praise for her role in The Kids Are All Right, alongside Annette Bening. She’s also getting exposure as the new model for Talbots, however, the bulk of her time has been spent promoting her Oscar-nominated film.

The accomplished actress definitely has some favorite designers: Lanvin, Tom Ford, and Yves Saint Laurent. Although the pink one-sleeve Alber Elbaz for Lanvin gown she selected for the Golden Globes 2011 got mixed reviews because of its asymmetrical nature and wrinkled appearance, the A-list actress is always getting her picture taken.

Over the years, her style choices have become edgier; at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, Julianne wore a yellow Christian Lacroix Haute Couture gown with black feathered shoulders, set off by Chopard jewelry for the premiere of her film Blindness.

But sometimes fashion risks just don’t payoff. Take the emerald green Resort 2010 Yves Saint Laurent number she wore to the September 2009 Toronto International Film Festival premiere of Chloe. The puffy sleeves of the bolero overwhelmed her frame, and the heart-shaped cut was distracting if not downright unflattering.

But her off-the-mark fashion moments are usually few and far between. The leading lady’s dramatic purple Balenciaga outfit she wore to the Paris showing of designer-turned-director Tom Ford’s film, A Single Man, in February of last year was a knockout. A Tom Ford selection might have been the obvious choice, but the dedicated fan of the designer can’t wear his clothes for every event. Besides, Julianne proved her love when she worked the runway at the December show for the Tom Ford Spring 2011 collection.

Julianne also modeled for Italian fashion house Bulgari, but her mostly-nude ads surrounded by lion cubs and the brand’s accessories caused quite a stir, and were even banned in some places.

Julianne wore Lanvin’s ruffled, reddish-orange number for the 15th Annual Critics Choice Awards at the beginning of 2010, and her custom Spring 2010 Erdem gown at the New York premiere of The Kids Are All Right in late June of last year was actually modified from the runway.

Often admired for her red carpet choices, Julianne’s casual attire is also on-point. A relaxed patterned tee, long scarf, rolled jeans and a classic Hermes Birkin bag were perfect for cruising around the West Village. The actress redefined travel wear at LAX this past November, looking sleek in a tailored leather jacket, slouchy grey top, chunky short black boots, and aviator sunglasses. There’s no denying that over the years, the now 50-year-old star has more than proven her stylish longevity.

Heart Truth Fashion Show Kicks off NY Fashion Week

Since 2003, the red dress has been the symbol of the Heart Truth Awareness campaign to promote women’s heart health, and the accompanying fashion show has become an event in its own right during NY Fashion Week. Celebrities came out in droves for the event, including Anne Curry, Taraji P. Henson, Garcelle Beauvais, Audrina Patridge, Julianne Hough, Natasha Bedingfield, and Denise Richards, all sporting designs from top designers. Many of them have been touched in some way by heart disease, others were just there to support the worthy cause. Although the show itself lacked energy at first, it picked up towards the end and the gowns spoke for themselves. All styles were represented – long, short, embellished, minimalist, full and swingy, and form-fitting. We loved Cat Deeley’s strapless, floor-length, floaty confection by Alberta Ferretti. Gorgeous! Our least favorite?  The Ina Soltani strapless taffeta party dress was a poor choice for the 64-year-old Suzanne Somers…

At iFashionNetwork, we applaud both the cause and the kick-off of fashion week; check back for more runway coverage…
