Michelle Obama Wears Jason Wu AGAIN to 2013 Inauguration Ball
It would be the biggest news since Michelle Obama’s bangs — of course I’m talking about her dress of choice for the 2013 Inauguration ball. Out walks the First Lady in her gorgeous ruby colored full length gown (with v-neck back) and alongside the President, they share the first dance. (All the while we’re all holding our breathe, in anticipation of the dress announcement.) Finally it’s revealed, she’s wearing Jason Wu… again. What’s so crazy about this momentous fashion moment is no one knows who she will wear — not even the designer — until she makes her entrance. She complimented the dress with Jimmy Choo shoes.
Having a reputation for wearing young designers and bringing them in the spotlight — as she did the first time around in wearing Jason Wu, and with all the speculation over who she would be wearing. I don’t think anyone anticipated it would Wu again. She already made his career the first time around,
CoupTessa Fools Day
Happy April friends! Yesterday, I woke to an email from a friend with the subject line “Jimmy Choos”? And inside was a link to daily deal site, CoupTessa for $5 for the designer shoes from Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik & more (Value $1200, Save $1195). A deal too good to be true? Yes, it was a big whopping April Fools joke, and I for once didn’t fall for it—I emailed my friend back saying it was a prank. Although a part of me was going to feel really stupid if I was wrong. What gave it away for me was the ‘unlimited coupons per customer’ part. I think had they said 1/per customer it would have been more realistic and hilarious since everyone would be calling all their friends, family and going nuts to get even more pairs.
That evening I received a press release about the occurrence and I was right! Apparently their phones were ringing off the hook all morning and everyone had a good laugh out of it, especially the subscribers themselves. Definitely my kind of prank –funny but not harmful or embarrassing. I have to give it to CoupTessa, that was a good one and considering how much the deal circulated and a really brilliant marketing campaign.
Choo on this! Fragrance isn’t Saab-ing this week!
This is a big week for fragrance with Jimmy Choo and Elie Saab both signing fragrance deals!
Jimmy Choo signed a 12-year fragrance licensing agreement with Inter Parfums effective January 1st. Founder and president, Tamara Mellon, comments, “It has always been my vision to fully accessorize the woman, and fragrance is an integral part of the modern wardrobe.” Feel free to dress me head to toe any day of the week!
Meanwhile, Elie Saab signed a 10-year fragrance (and cosmetic!) license agreement with Beauty Prestige International (BPI). “Creating a fragrance has become an essential step of the development of our couture house,” says Saab. “We have chosen BPI as a partner who is able to actualize our ambitions. We will create together a signature fragrance and an image that embody the DNA of our brand.”
I’m obsessed with Elie Saab, he makes some of the most beautiful clothing I have ever seen. If this fragrance embodies any part of that man’s talent or ability to make a woman feel anything short of perfection, then sign me up!
