BUTTERFLY MAXI DRESS…

How good does Evans style editor look in this gorgeous floor length maxi dress? Heres what she had to say about the look…

“I’m looking forward to the weekend and I plan to start having fun the moment I clock off work today. 

This butterfly print maxi dress (coming in next week!) suits my mood and will take me into the beer garden for a nice glass of Friday Rose.

Without something over the top, this maxi dress would be too OTT for work, so I’ve added a soft denim biker jacket. But I can’t resist some playful jewellery in the shape of a leather charm necklace.

This oversized white leather bag is roomy and yet stylish. I’ve been shopping at lunchtime and filled it to bursting point!”

YOUNG, FAT AND FABULOUS

I’m an avid blog reader and thought why not share my love for them with you, the readers. Young, Fat and Fabulous is a fantastic blog from Gabi, who says “I’m a fun loving girl who happens to have a flair for fashion. I’m just trying to change the world one fat girl at a time.” How utterly fabulous does Gabi look her in simple acid wash jeans from Evans, a black blazer and a mans gold watch. Gabi is officially my new style crush!

Gabi features not only news from the world of fashion, editorials (such as the issue of French Glamour below, where she was mentioned) and videos but she posts fabulous photographs of herself in well put together, always stylish ensembles. Take a look at her blog and let me know if there are any blogs you love and want me to mention.

The girls featured above in the French Glamour are Stephaine, Sakina and Kylanita, three French bloggers that have amples of style and fashion knowledge. Check out their blogs by clicking above. Each one has its own gorgeous imagery and inspiring text.

CRYSTAL GRACING ANOTHER COVER!

Crystal Renn appears on the cover of the June 2010 issue of American Glamour alongside Alessandra Ambrosio, and Brooklyn Decker. The headline to the cover story photographed by Matthias Vriens-McGrath in St. Barts declares, “Sexy! We’ve got the best swimsuits for every body…Size 2, Size 12, Whatever!”

Crystal leads the editorial that turns the conventional swimwear feature on its head. We’ve seen Alessandra Ambrosio wearing next to nothing for Victoria’s Secret for years, we’ve seen the flawless Brooklyn Decker in Sports Illustrated‘s Swimsuit Edition, but seeing plus model Crystal kick off the story wearing a Zimmermann one-piece and Christian Roth sunglasses in an unpatronizing manner is an act heretofore unseen. What’s so striking about the Glamour cover story is not that it’s not a mere reprise of the “size issues” that have done the rounds of fashion magazines of late, but that Crystal’s right there with the best of the best no matter the size.

Asked by Glamour if there is indeed a movement to use models of all sizes, Crystal is emphatic in responding, “I absolutely believe so. Even Prada showed curvier models this spring.” And why not? If Crystal, Alessandra, and Brooklyn can share the odd cover of Glamour, then the possibilities are limitless.

JENNIFER HUDSON – NEW FACE OF WEIGHT WATCHERS

Curvy beauty, actress and singer Jennifer Hudson looks fabulous recently and has just become the face of Weight Watchers. She looks healthy and had curves in all the right places. Jennifer says “I was very comfortable with myself before,” she shared. “I have a child now and I want to set a great example for him. Make better life choices, health choices, and just create a good example for him growing up.”

Ms. Hudson, 28, who won an Academy Award in 2007 for her role as the singer Effie in “Dreamgirls,” followed a Weight Watchers program for several months, tracking what she ate, intensifying her exercise routine and meeting weekly with a diet coach. The Grammy-winning singer dropped a noticeable, but undisclosed, number of pounds — a topic of celebrity gossip sites and blogs — in the months since she gave birth to her first child, a boy, last August.

Weight Watchers has long used star power in its campaigns. Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, was its spokeswoman in the United States from 1997 to 2007, and the actress Jenny McCarthy did a stint last year.

Ms. Hudson’s Weight Watchers role began with a live Facebook chat, and she has started to blog about her weight loss on weightwatchers.com. The blog will include commentary on what she likes to eat, recipes and exercise tips, Ms. Callan said. Later this spring, the blog will include her experiences making a film in South Africa about Winnie Mandela, the former wife of Nelson Mandela.

The four Weight Watchers commercials were filmed at the same time, with Ms. Hudson dressed casually in pants, a striped shirt and a cardigan, in a music studio setting. The look and setting were chosen “because we wanted people to be able to see her body, with clothing that shows her new shape,” said Joyce King Thomas, chief creative officer for McCann Erickson, a unit of the Interpublic Group of Companies, which handled the campaign.
