Glitzburgh Glam: Mila Kunis is the (gorgeous!) New Face of Christian Dior

5 Jan

The beautiful Mila Kunis is the newest face of Christian Dior, one of the most elegant and trusted names in fashion.

Her exquisite first ads will be for the Miss Dior handbag and were shot by renowned photographer Mikael Jansson. They’ll debut internationally in Asian and European editions of Vogue, Elle, and Madame Figaro in mid-January, with appearances in US media towards the end of the month. Kunis is joining a long list of fabulous celebrities to represent the luxury brand. Other faces of Dior include Marion Cotillard, Natalie Portman, Charlize Theron, Sophie Marceau, Jude Law, Eva Green, and Sharon Stone. Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor was also a huge fan of Dior dresses and fragrance.

“I am absolutely thrilled to be working with Dior,” Mila Kunis said in a statement. “The brand is iconic in so many ways. It defines fashion, elegance and sophistication.”

So true. And for that, Kunis is a perfect fit with her sexy yet classic look.

Enjoy some images from the campaign, below.

Glitzburgh Glam: Prada Headphones – Listen to Music in Style!

22 Dec

If you have $595 to spare, you can listen to music in style with the new Prada headphones.

It isn’t a new concept – some of the Beats by Dr. Dre are pretty stylish (see: Lady Gaga Heartbeats) and we accessorize and brand everything else (Michael Kors iPhone wallets, Juicy Couture and Kate Spade phone cases, even diamond-encrusted contacts, and Dolce & Gabanna eyeglasses) so why NOT rock some designer headphones?

What do you think — are they worth the money or just a waste?

Glitzburgh Glam: Bebe Bridal Line Debuting this March

22 Dec

Bebe. While, yes, it’s a mall store, it definitely is a mall store with a whole lot of style, while still being affordable — and this is exactly why it appeals to so many. Unfortunately, as of late, they’ve become more well-known for their “comfy” clothing and animal-print clubwear than their more chic and sophisticated pieces. This is why they are re-branding and launching an upscale bridal line come March 2012. The line will feature “dramatic yet tasteful” silhouettes for the modern bride.

“Project Runway” runner-up and fan favorite Rami Kashou will be at the head of Bebe’s bridal collection. Another bonus? The price. With today’s economy, brides-to-be are trying to scrimp and save where they can. No one wants to get a sub-par bridal gown, but lately many budget-friendly AND nice wedding gowns have hit the market, as evidenced by Disney’s Princess collection, as well as the Vera Wang for David’s Bridal collection, replicas of the Kate Middleton / Alexander McQueen dream gown, and even a replica of Twilight Breaking Dawn’s Bella Swan gown for Alfred Angelo. (Which was, BTW, to die for! – – Pardon the pun.)

Bebe will just be the next step in affordable bridal wear, falling right in line with Anthropologie/Urban Outfitters’ launch of BHLDN and the brands listed above.

This collection  also shows that Bebe is maturing as a brand, and upping the ante as far as taste goes. Would you wear a Bebe wedding dress? Do share! Leave us a comment and let us know.

Glitzburgh Glam: The Iconic Collection of Elizabeth Taylor

7 Dec

Elizabeth Taylor is a name synonymous with glamour, luxury, and a lush life filled with adventure and style. The legend was a star who lavished herself in all things beautiful — and for this, she has become a fashion icon who will be sorely missed. If you were a fan of the late, great Elizabeth Taylor, you can own a piece of her life’s collection — but it will cost you a pretty penny.

The Elizabeth Taylor Diamond is one of the (many) highlights of the Collection of Elizabeth Taylor that is being auctioned off at Christie’s. It is a Rectangular-Cut Diamond Ring of 33.19 carats
D color, Potentially Internally Flawless, Type IIa, and will sell for an estimated $2,500,000 – 3,500,000. There’s also the LA PEREGRINA 16th century Natural Pearl, Ruby, Diamond and Cultured Pearl Necklace, by Cartier, which should also fetch an easy $2,000,000 – 3,000,000.

Oh, is that all?

Other stunners include The Burton Wedding Bands, which were given to Elizabeth Taylor by Richard Burton upon their marriages in 1964 and 1975, and will fetch a much more affordable (ha!)  $6,000 – 8,000, and an Emile Galle  Marquetrie-Sur-Verre Glass Vase, circa 1900 with gold foil inclusions and artist signature, that should go for approximately $15,000 – 20,000.

Taylor, known most for her jewelry, was a fashion icon. Other looks that are up for auction include A Sapphire and Diamond Sautoir by BVLGARI, circa 1971, worth $600,000 – 800,000, and TWO SATELLITE SUITCASES, A NICE BEAUTY CASE AND A DEAUVILLE BEAUTY BAG by Louis Vuitton, 20th Century, at an estimated $2,500 – 3,500.

You can buy the clothes once worn by the world-famous icon, too, from a lovely  pinky-peach 2-piece CHRISTIAN DIOR EVENING ENSEMBLE worth $6,000 – 8,000, to a AN EMANUEL UNGARO RED, PINK, BROWN AND YELLOW STRIPED WOOL COAT for around $900.

Paintings by Van Gogh and others are also for sale (for millions of dollars) and you can also purchase the Deluxe Signed Limited Edition of My Love Affair With Jewelry, signed on the justification page by Elizabeth Taylor, numbered from the edition of 50 (copies 26/50-50/50 for general release) and stamped Edition A, which comes in a presentation box together with a copy of The Legendary Jewels: The Evening Sale similarly numbered and stamped Edition A. This will run you about $2,500.

Glitzburgh Glam: Carey Mulligan’s Copycat Covers

7 Dec

If you subscribe to Vogue magazine, and, perchance, happened to pick up a copy of the most recent issue of the French ELLE Magazine, you’d likely end up puzzled and surprised — with a bad case of deja-vu!

Why, you ask?

The latest cover of French ELLE is nearly identical to an October 2010 issue of Vogue magazine.

The photo, shot in 2010 in the South of France by Peter Lindbergh, features actress and fashion plate Carey Mulligan with styling by Vogue’s Grace Coddington.

The magazines are competitors, and not within the same publishing house, so the situation leaves many questions unanswered.

Take a look:

10 Oct

Over the weekend, Tom Cruise and wife Katie Holmes were spotted in Oakland’s Schenley Plaza njoying the carousel with daughter Suri. Zombiefest 2011 was also going on, leaving little Suri a bit unsettled. However, according to sources, Tom seemed to be in a great mood, waving to fans and onlookers as he spent the day with his family.

It seems that the Cruises have really been enjoying their time exploring Pittsburgh.
