Kimye Wedding 2014

29 May

So Kim Kardashian and Kanye West tied the knot a few days ago in Florence, Italy where the ceremony was held in Forte di Belvedere, and I have a feeling this marriage will last longer than her previous one to Kris Humphries which only lasted 72 days! I made a similar post when she tied the knot in 2011, expressing how much I loved her wedding gown and more specifically her after-party gown, and I have to say I am in love again!

Her Wedding gown this time was an absolutely stunning custom-lace Givenchy Haute Couture  white wedding gown. Givenchy is one of her favourite labels and creative director Riccardo Tisci, is one of her best friends.

I have to say lace is timeless and feminine and you can’t go past white for a wedding gown. I love the detail in the back, the addition of the thin belt and I have always loved a long-sleeve wedding gown. I also love the super long train and how the dress fits her curves perfectly being very figure hugging, mermaid style. I also love how parts of her skin in the back and front show through the lace. Absolutely breathtaking! She also wore a long, silk veil which added to her already amazing overall look.

The new Mrs. West went for simple hair and make up which completed her look to perfection. Going back to her natural brunette coloured hair, the white coloured gown sparkled on her.

There has been no sign yet of what her other dress looked like for the night which she changed into after the ceremony but word is that it was a short, cream-coloured, custom Balmain dress, which is also one of her favourite designers.

Do you guys agree with me and do you also love this wedding gown?

Take a look and let me know…

Also, just to mention, my favourite Aussie designers who I regularly post about on here, J’Aton Couture, also made an appearance at the Kimye Wedding, on socialite Amber Ridinger. Amber Ridinger is the daughter of big American, entrepreneurs Loren and JR Ridinger who are best friends with the Kardashian clan. Amber Ridinger wore one of their spectacular creations on her wedding day and also chose them to dress her for this special occasion, in not one but TWO gowns!

The first (lavender coloured) gown she wore was featured on our very own Rebecca Judd at the TV week Logie awards this year and the second gown did not fail to impress either. Both absolutely stunning! Take a look at these gowns as well as her spectacular wedding gown in 2013.

The best lingerie in town!

24 Mar

It is not easy to find lingerie that is both super comfortable and looks just as beautiful as it feels but I have found it!!!

Simone Pérèle!!!

Started by Madame Simone Pérèle herself in Paris, France in 1948, it really is so french and is a label which really understands what women want! She has created luxurious lingerie for women with passion, freedom, sensuality and spirit.

The delicate hand-made lace, unique colours and extra detail make a Simone Pérèle piece all the more perfect for a special occasion or simply to be worn everyday.

The company which is now run by her son Philippe and daughter Catherine, is one of the leading brands in lingerie. It takes one year to design and produce a Simone Pérèle bra which proves why it is one of the biggest sellers in Australia’s leading department store David Jones and has the most popular sold t-shirt bra in the world, with one sold every minute somewhere around the world.  Simone Pérèle is also the leading lingerie brand in many french department stores. The quality of a Simone Pérèle bra is outstanding!

Simone Pérèle’s new shapewear line ‘Top Model’ is by far the best on the market and I’ve tried many different labels to look slimmer and to reduce any lines or bumps under my dressess or pants.

Available in skin colour and black, Top Model which is inspired by 10 years of research combines lace and lycra and controls cellulite thanks to the microfibre which might I add, breathes better than cotton as its thread count is ten times higher than silk and super soft on the skin. Not only that, but it is microencapsulated with select key elements (Caffeine, Vitamin E and Aloe Vera) that are released upon contact with skin to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

It is available in three designs, the High Waist Brief Shaper, Lift shaper and Full shaper.

My personal favourite, is the High Waist Brief Shaper which I tested under my 21st dress. It made me look 2 sizes smaller and completely flattened my stomach! I didn’t want to take it off!

Try it to believe the results as I simply love this new shapewear line and was so glad to discover that Simone Pérèle is releasing a Top Model dresss which will be even more perfect for me under my many evening dresses.

Also, if you are looking for the perfect t-shirt bra, you MUST try either of these:

Caressence 3D Plunge T-Shirt Bra

or the

Andora 3D Contour T-Shirt Bra/Padded Moulded T-Shirt Bra

They can even be worn under an evening dress and are seamless, giving a good lift/push-up and a nice shape and the soft 3D knit moulding feels like a second skin!

Simone Pérèle is famous for its lace, beauty and comfort so why not spoil yourself with a beautiful bra, perfect for a special night out, or simply to transform your mood because wearing beautiful lingerie in beautiful colours underneath everyday wear, can leave you feeling happy and sexy! As Simone Pérèle used to say herself, “a good bra is a bra you forget you are wearing”, and that’s how you will feel in one of her bras!

Here is just a taste of one….Be sure to check out David Jones or any of the many Simone Pérèle Direct Stores in Australia to discover the elegance and amazing designs of Simone Pérèle lingerie! All stores also offer a fantastic specialist fitting service!!

Simone Pérèle, (la signature d’une femme) is art on bare skin and is all about the many facets of a woman’s signature touch.
