Sienna for Vogue

In the June issue of US Vogue, Sienna Miller is talking about about her past, and even admits to getting therapy to help her through the tough times. She is promoting her upcoming movie G.I. Joe and seems like she has pulled herself together in the past year, and hopefully has turned over a new leaf!

I've just joined the Weardrobe Community these days and I already got chosen for one of the Weardrobe team favorite outfits posted in June. I couldn't help myself but write a post about that and share my accomplishment.

I'm glad they liked my picture and I hope there will be more to come! Yey!!!

Gwyneth Paltrow is never NOT looking fabulous.

Charlize Theron is a celebrity fashion trend-setter who rarely disappoints.

Kate Hudson looks just amazing in just about anything.

Sa ne rasune in urechi, sa ne socheze retina, sa ne puna pe ganduri si sa actionam in consecinta. Asta urmaresc campaniile sociale. Ele reprezinta in general incercari de a preveni sau de a educa publicul larg in privinta unor probleme care le vizeaza in mod direct existenta.

Omenirea a pasit in mileniul trei cu o gama de probleme mai vechi, cum ar fi conflictele armate, saracia, coruptia, dar si cu altele mai noi, ca HIV/SIDA, tutunul care face tot mai multe victime in fiecare zi, poluarea si exploatarea necontrolata a mediului inconjurator, traficul de fiinte umane, violenta asupra omanilor si animalelor si multe altele. Asupra multora se trag semnale din ce in ce mai des si cu impact din ce in ce mai mare asupra populatiei pasive, uneori prea indiferenta fata de problemele care o inconjoara.

Oameni celebri din intreaga lume au urmarit in ultima perioada sa promoveze anumite valori prin diferite spoturi publicitare care sa ne atraga atentia asupra lucurilor care ne influenteaza viata, cum ar fi viteza excesiva care poate ucide, tutunul care dauneaza grav sanatatii, violenta in familie etc. Atat spoturile publicitare cat si posterele ce impanzesc orasul sunt de cele mai multe ori socante, imaginatia agentiilor de publicitate necunoscand limite atunci cand vine vorba de capta atentia si de a constientiza cauzele indiferentei fiecaruia dintre noi.

Ca o paranteza, imi aduc aminte cand am stat la Viena ca existau frecvent manifestatii ale PETA sau a altor organizatii de acest gen, in centrul orasului in care se proiectau pe niste ecrane imense filme cu animale batute cu bestialitate sau schingiuite inainte sa fie omorate pentru foloasele care le aduc omului (carne, blana, etc). Si acum se ridica parul pe mine cand ma gandesc. Este absolut oribil sa realizezi ca exista oameni capabili de asemenea atrocitati. Nu iti poti imagina cat de departe poate merge rautatea umana. Asta asa ,vorbind de lucururi pe care omul le face altor fiinte sau mediului care il inconjoara, ca sa nu mai vorbim de raul pe care si-l face cu mana lui asupra siesi.

Toate aceste actiuni sunt menite sa traga semnale de alarma in randul populatiei si in general in spatele lor se afla diferite organizatii non profit care propun sau monitorizeaza mesajele respective.

Cu cat sunt mai socante, cu atat impactul asupra publicului este mai mare.

Tot indiferent?

Eva Mendes & Jamie Dornan sexy for Calvin Klein

Calvin Klein has just released a sneak preview of their latest ad campaigns that featuring Eva Mendes and Jamie Dornan.

After Eva Mendes’s first Calvin Klein advertisement was banned from TV for being too raunchy, it appears her latest campaign is trying to push the envelope even further. The latest advertising campaign is yet more proof that fashion houses are pushing boundaries to extremes in order to gain publicity for their products.

Eva and Jamie’s new ads are in a similar vein to a recent Emporio Armani underwear campaign featuring David and Victoria Beckham.

The celebrity couple posed in their undies together last year.

Diamonds are forever!

Diamond is the hardest natural material known to man and can only be cut by other diamonds. Its hardness means it maintains its polish excellently and resists scratching, making it ideal for use in designer jewellery. The durability and beauty of diamonds has made them a very popular choice.

About 49% of diamonds originate from central and southern Africa. However, significant sources of the mineral have also been discovered in Canada, India, Russia, Brazil, and Australia. The hardest diamonds in the world are from the New England area in New South Wales, Australia. These diamonds are generally small, perfect to semi-perfect octahedrans (a three-dimensional shape with eight faces) and are used to polish other diamonds.

Different coloured diamonds are usually treated – they can be found naturally, but this is extremely rare. ‘Fancy diamonds’, as they are called, are popular for use in fine jewellery because they are rare and exotic-looking.

Orange Diamonds
This was the first coloured diamond ever to be produced synthetically and for a long time, the only colour available. These are often similar in colour to amber or topaz, but are considerably harder and brighter and reflect more light. Their flame-like colour makes them particularly popular in fine jewellery.

Black Diamonds
These are coloured black as a result of inclusions, possibly with traces of sulphide. These have begun to be particularly fashionable in designer jewellery in recent years. They are very rare and therefore extremely expensive – currently demand considerably exceeds supply, and this is being rectified by creating a supply of treated black diamonds.

Pink Diamonds
These rank amongst the most expensive gemstones in the world and have recently enjoyed considerable popularity with celebrities.

Scarf around

DON'T DENY YOURSELF AN OVERSIZED SUMMER SCARF: Last year the thin scarf was in, this season it's time to be a bit more bold. Sure the weather maybe warming, but there is something inherently chic about having a colorful carefree sash around the neck. And when all else fails, there's always fashion functionality. Sometimes we must think about air conditioning in the summer. A scarf it's quite effective!
