< moments in time

Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande in London. The last week I have become so accustomed to seeing where they are and what they&#8217;re wearing, it&#8217;s going to be wierd when they leave. It has to be noted that their attire for the week has been top game - safe to say I want every single one of their coats.

In complete awe of this Chanel Spring/Summer 2015 design. The soft tone of colours against the pureness of the white, the intricate layers of beading, the definitive lines of the collar challenged by the spherical illusion of the beads, the flowers that finely entwine themselves amidst the embellishments. The design speaks of the provocative, yet equally enchanting, side of nature and the power that comes with that.

I’m in complete awe of this design.

"Make fashion, not war"

With feminism at the centre of talk in the news, it wasn’t hard to misread the statement Karl Lagerfield was trying to make in his latest Chanel Spring/Summer 2015 show at Paris Fashion Week; the shows motives follow in the footsteps of both Beyonce - and her feminist advertisement in her recent MTV performance- and Emma Watson’s UN speech - which has received relentless support from other big names, including Harry Styles, Taylor Swift and South African Nobel peace laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu

The models, including Cara Delevingne and Kendall Jenner, marched down the runway in their functional, while elusive designs that yelled women pride. It was a memorable finale for “a collection that showcased femininity and strength”. 

OTPs

Chuck and Blair

image

Charles Bartholemew Bass and Blair Cornelia Waldorf, the true definition of soul mates; if two people were meant for one another, it was these two. They understood one another in ways no one else did, drawn together by this ‘great love’. She bought out his good side, and equally he bought out hers. They broke each others hearts over and over but not for a second did that ever alter their love and that is what I am continually infatuated by; their love was invincible.

Nathan and Haley

image

Always and forever - they were in it for the long run the second those words became theirs. It began a typical cliché love, player jock falls for the valedictorian tutor but it became so, so, so, so, so, much more than that; they got married and had a baby and that was just before graduation. Post graduation saw them grow stronger than ever; they helped each other grow career wise, raised Jamie, had a beautiful baby girl and if that wasn’t enough for you, their reunion after Nathan was kidnapped just affirmed everything; they couldn’t live apart, over nine seasons they became one.

Stefan and Elena

image

image

Stelena, the better half of the Salvatore/Elena love triangle. There isn’t much more to say on the matter. Stefan and Elena will always be the better love; it’s pure and real. From the start he has been there for her, saving her without soulfully realizing; he was her ‘miracle’ and he would go to the end of the universe and back to protect her. Their flame may be temporarily burnt out amidst the fire known as ‘delena’ (let’s not get started on that), but there is hope for them yet; a love like theirs does not just disappear, they both just need to find their way back.

Lois and Clark

image

image

The renowned Lois Lane and Clark Kent. I loved Clark and Lana, she was his damsel in distress and it was sweet, but then Lois came on the scene and the whole dynamics of the show changed. Their climax was certainly one of the most powerful I’ve seen – it was a love hate relationship that slowly blossomed into this beautiful, captivating romance story. Besides being Lois Lane and Clark Kent, they were always predestined – the school pep rally (pictured), Chloe saw it, we all saw it;  the way they looked at each other in that scene, practically strangers,  we unquestionably knew there was something between the two of them, somthing that would outlast anything Lana or even Chloe had with Clark, it was the start of destiny. 

Sebastian and Carrie

image

image

I think it is, without a doubt, fair to say that everyone wants a relationship like Sebastian and Carrie at school, and after school, and just forever really. Who doesn’t want a Sebastian Kydd as a boyfriend, I’d have him as an enemy if it meant just having him in my life. He may have been her first kiss but it breaks my heart that she didn’t loose her virginity to him. That aside, their cuteness is overwhelmingly flawless. 

Barney and Robyn

image

image

I’m biased when it come’s to my affection for Barney and Robyn, purely because the first episode I saw was their wedding; I never saw her and Ted and the subtle intimations of their fate, I was hooked on Barney. Had I watched the series from the beginning, the beginning where Ted was with Robyn, I could be writing something completely different right now, but I didn’t. Both messed up when it comes to commitment and relationships, Barney and Robyn have always been the same person, they understood each other, wanted the same things. I don’t think I will ever forgive the writers of the show for ending them. 

London Fashion Week - Temperley Spring/Summer 2015 

A collection immersed in block shape prints and light summer colours, it was certainly one of the more relaxed looks of the day at London Fashion Week. The movement of fabric, accompanied by a basic color coordinated converse, gave the collection a sense of comfort and ease. 

"

I wanted these vows to be perfect but perfection is a hard thing to get your hands on. But life is meant to be a little messy, and when it comes to love I think its like my dad always said about the army, you only sign up if its the only thing you can ever imagine doing and Clark, I can not imagine spending a moment of my life without you. So I promise that I will always have your back as you will always have mine. You are my best friend, my home and you are my true love, and I am yours and will be forever” - Lois Lane’s vows

"I Clark Kent take you Lois Lane to be my companion, forever.. and with you by my side I will never be alone. The world sees a strong and independent woman but I have never known someone with such gentle grace and pure heart. When I’ve been lost you’ve always been there to bring me back. So on this day, at this moment, I pledge the rest of my life to you. You’ve always believed in me and I believe in you and when you believe in someone, it’s not for a minute or just for now.. it’s forever." - Clark Kent’s vows

“The highly anticipated MTV Video music awards kicked off its outrageous red carpet arrivals last night at the Forum in LA”

 image

Victoria Justice channeled a flamingo dancer with a touch of glamour in her Lublue Kira Plastinina skirt and Alice + Olivia crop top while Taylor Swift went a little more orthodox in a skimpy Mary Katrantzou romper. Both girls stood out amongst the adventurous dressed likes of Katy Perry and even Ariana Grande who, known for her usual girly attire, showed up in a black leather two piece and gold plated Moschino belt.

Each year the VMA’s never fail to deliver its fair share of shocking moments – whether that be Lady GaGa’s dress of meat, Beyonce announcing her pregnancy or Chris Brown interrupting Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech, the show is never short on drama and that’s not even mentioning Miley Cryrus. Last years VMAs saw her parade the stage in a promiscuous foam finger before twerking on artist Robin Thicke, causing a controversial stir amongst pretty much everyone. This year, however, she opted for a less decadent way in her bid to generate talk by sending a young homeless man up on stage to collect her award for ‘Video of the year’. Jesse, the young man, spoke of his experience on the streets of LA and encouraged people to support the homeless shelter, ‘My Friends Place’ , all while a teary Miley Cyrus watched on in admiration. 

It was a BIG year performance wise! At the end of the day, they are the Video Music Awards, why shouldn’t the performances be as big as the awards up for grabs!!
Taylor Swift rings in a new era with ‘Shake it off’, a song from her first ever official pop album, 1989. After a performance like that, she certainly won’t be remembered as the country, acoustic singing girl on guitar. In her shimmering silver two-piece, she wholeheartedly embraced her new sound.

 

The VMA’s kicked off the show with the much awaited first ever live performance of Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj’s song ‘Bang Bang’. With three big voices like theirs, it was inevitably going to be a vocal masterpiece.

 

Last but not least, 5 seconds of summer with their song ‘Amnesia’. There’s not a lot I can say. ‘Amnesia’ has always been/will always be my favourite song. It’s lyrics are powerful and heart melting and inciting and their performance of it.. flawless. I couldn’t tell you how many times I pressed the replay button on it. 

happy birthday to my fave

The worlds pristine teenage celebrities under one roof can only mean one thing, Teen Choice Awards. 

Its recurring dress theme, less is more, hit a new high this year, with more celebs bearing their mid drifts than any other previous year. Young actresses, Chloe Moretz and Nina Dobrev, both took the fashion scene by storm, accessorizing their statement looks with color corresponding heels. Each actress made the matching set trend their own; choosing who wore it best would be like picking your favorite child. Taylor Swift also stunned in her Novis, skirt two piece. 

Both in white and far from similar, Ariana Grande and Victoria Justice both stunned in their different takes on the white dress. While Ariana Grande amazed in a short bejeweled mini dress by designer Georges Chakra, Victoria Justice went for the more bohemian look in a Rebecaa Minkoff, knee length crochet dress. One thing that has to be noted is how on point the choice of footwear was this year. The simplicity of the ankle strap heels and stilettos corresponded effortlessly with the statement attire exhibited by the sea of beautiful teenage girls.
