Watch This Style / Ad Madness: La Vie Est Belle For Lancome & Julia Roberts!


While sifting through the knee-high pile of the September issues of my favorite magazines, I noticed that several (Self, Cosmopolitan, & Allure) have the ads for Lancome‘s latest fragrance La Vie Est Belle featuring Julia Roberts‘ infamous smile on their back covers.  The Oscar winner’s Mirror Mirror director, Tarsem Singh has, from behind the camera, brought out the best in Julia in a short film to go along with the stunning ad campaign.  Luckily, I was able to find the video on YouTube, along with a making-of video, which includes a brunette-tressed Julia in an elegant white gown breaking free from conventions & embracing a beautiful life, all with the help of the perfume.  Having graduated from the previously popular Tresor fragrance, La Vie Est Belle is set to hit stores in mid-August.

What do you think of Julia Roberts as a spokeswomen for Lancome? Do you like the videos? Would you try this scent? For more celebrity campaigns, check out posts from Ad Madness, including Lana Del Rey for H&M, Lily Collins for Movado, & Kate Hudson for Ann Taylor.  In addition, Watch This Style videos include stylist Brad Goreski talking to Nightline, a behind-the-scenes look at Victoria Beckham as guest editor for the September issue of Glamour, & my top 5 most stylish music videos from the Spice Girls.

Quickie Darling Deal & Steal: Affordable Animal-Inspired Accessories!


There’s nothing that I love more in an accessory than a pop of animal inspiration!  Personally, I’m a big fan od zebra print, having always been pro-black-&-white in my style.  However, the spectrum of animal print doesn’t stop there since we have leopard, cheetah, croc, & snake prints to bring out the style in our basic items.

First let’s talk shoes… hands down, the boldest of my choices is this blue platform heel from Charlotte Russe for $35.50.  It does border on tacky, but you’re not likely to run into anyone else at a cocktail party wearing them!  They’re wild to pair with a metallic mini dress or even show off with a pair of jeans & silk top.  Something to keep in mind while shopping the shoes @Charlotte Russe is that they’re always having promotions for shoes, like BOGO $10 or $15.  That’s when getting the zebra slingbacks comes in handy so that you’re saving a bunch of money since they cost $40.00!

If you’re looking for something more moderate when it comes to an animal-inspired shoes, take a look at the scrunchy cheetah flats for $15.80 @Forever 21.  They’re darling for a tunic top & leggings or to wearing with skinny jeans & a babydoll top on a casual day.  Another fierce option would be the leopard peep toe cone pumps for $22.80, & cone pumps are very on-trend for fall.  There’s something vintage about them, yet they’re still cute enough to wear with a pencil skirt & button-down shirt.

For fall, I’m also currently obsessed with scarves & can’t wait to layer them over tanks & short-sleeved cardigans at night when the summer weather turns cooler!  The first of my scarf choices is the multi-print scarf from The Limited, but is no longer available!  I had picked this item out a few days ago for $16.99, but my heart has broken b/c I was sooo close to ordering it!  The combination of leopard & polka dot just screamed chic & would’ve paired so well with an all-black ensemble! However, the leopard scarf is available @Payless for $12.99.  It would look so great with a neutral wrap dress or against a black romper.

In the middle, I have three belts picked out, which make for the best finishing touch on a look where you want to show off your figure.  The Material Girl belt duo in pink & taupe is no longer available @Macy’s.  Sad face.  Although, you can do very well with the leopard & black skinny belts from Payless for $12.99, especially since the store is currently having their BOGO 50% promotion!  If you wanna find something a little thicker, try the animal tab stretch belt by Style & Co. @Macy’s for $19.98.

You can’t talk about accessories & not show some bags.  The patchwork shopper is from Payless for $26.99, available in Black / Gray & Brown / Tan.  The combination of exotic prints & the chain strap add some luxury.  Not to mention that it’s also super spacious to put your iPad, cell phone, & other goodies in!  I have been talking about Target a lot lately & looooove this snake print clutch wallet for $19.99.  It’s looks like chic enough to be an evening clutch, but can always be used on a daily basis as your very sassy wallet.  It’s multiple sections inside are perfect for helping to organize your bills & shopping expeditions!

Last, but not least, I have some jewelry pics.  This includes the pink snake embossed bangle from White House Black Market for $34.o0.  It’s just enough print to go with a floral sun dress,  Right now the store is having a sale that you can’t miss: All jewelry is BOGO 25% off!  So while you’re there, try the zebra drop hoop earrings which are marked down to $13.99 from $20.00!
