A 60s revival is in full force – and style stars like Emma Stone are sporting looks that nod to the era. Take a cue from these trendsetters by incorporating one piece with a touch of retro flair into your outfit. Think an embellished mini shift, bold stripes, or patent leather Mary Janes.

Most Coveted 60s Inspired Style

  1. Valentino Navy & Red Stripe Double-Breasted Coat. A graphic coat with a high collar adds a touch of vintage-inspired style to your everyday skinnies.
  2. Sparkling Sage Trio Stud Earrings. Pair these standout studs with everything from a T-shirt to your LBD.
  3. Cynthia Rowley Red Geo Appliqué Shift Dress. This embellished shift in the color of the season is a dreamy choice for holiday parties.
  4. Prada Women’s 28PS Sunglasses. Chic cat-eye frames with fun floral detailing will earn you serious street cred.
  5. Saint Laurent “Babies 40″ Patent Glitter Mary Jane Pump. Hedi Slimane showed this shimmery Mary Jane style on the runway. Now, introduce it to your wardrobe.

You may recognize Léa Seydoux as a frequent star in Prada’s campaigns. And with rumors circling that she signed on as the next Bond girl, expect to see a lot more from this French actress.

This coveted role wouldn’t be Léa’s first experience in film. The 29-year-old has starred in Blue Is the Warmest ColorPrada’s Resort 2012 campaign, the Prada Candy fragrance campaign, and Miu Miu’s Resort 2015 campaign. As for her frequent collaborator, designer Miuccia Prada? She, too, has experience working in the film industry, having crafted costumes for Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of The Great Gatsby.

The 24th Bond movie won’t begin production for another six weeks, but Léa will undergo costume tests in the meantime. Since she’s rarely seen wearing labels other than Prada or Miu Miu, my fingers are crossed that her wardrobe is designed by Miuccia herself.

Black and navy. Red and green. Historically, we’ve been told to avoid mixing certain hues when planning an outfit – but the Fall 2014 runways have been boldly defying traditional matching rules. Not only is experimenting with color encouraged, but labels like Miu Miu and Prada have proved that unusual combinations help simple wardrobe basics pop. Let’s take a look at two of the season’s liveliest palettes.

Fall Color Combos

Red, pink, and blue coexisted in a sporty Miu Miu look. Borrow these energetic shades with a cobalt Bottega Veneta clutch, a red Salvatore Ferragamo mini shoulder bag, and pink suede Miu Miu loafers.

At Prada, a fuzzy scarlet and mustard coat contrasted in both color and texture against a purple satin dress. Put together a yellow FENDI baguette, a purple patent Salvatore Ferragamo belt, and lipstick red Miu Miu pumps for an equally vibrant tapestry of hues.

Shop these rich hues in our Ciao, Italy: Luxe Style by FENDI & More Boutique, which opens Saturday, September 20, at 11AM ET.

Last night, the biggest stars of television partied in Los Angeles for the Emmys. Red was definitely the color of the night, with Claire Danes, January Jones, and Christina Hendricks all choosing the striking shade.

On stage, there were hilarious presenters (check out Jimmy Kimmel’s roasting of Matthew McConaughey here), a surprising kiss between Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Bryan Cranston, and a Breaking Bad sweep. But the real winners of the night were on the red carpet. See who made my top-five list below.

“Little” indulgences – be they small in price or size – can go a long way in boosting your mood. This week, I’m sharing three summer finds, as well as one piece of pint-sized luxury with so much personality it will make your heart sing.

most-coveted-blog-main

1. DV by Dolce Vita ‘Hoyt’ Romper. Rompers and jumpsuits have come a long way from vintage styles of the 70s. Now more tailored than ever, the cuts are made to flatter in all the right ways. 

2. Elie Saab ‘Le Parfum’ Eau de Toilette. Light with fresh floral notes, this is the perfect summer scent – plus, the bottle pulls double-duty as chic vanity décor!

3. Diane von Furstenberg ‘Martha’ Sunglasses. What’s that, you say? Too many sunglasses? Never.

4. Prada Saffiano Tote. A little embellishment never hurt anyone (neither did a mini Prada).

We all know the story of Cinderella’s shoes. Now, with the help of Prada, a life-changing pair might just be in your future, too.

That’s right – the adored luxury house has just announced a made-to-order program where shoe addicts can create their own pumps and peep-toes, choosing everything from their preferred finish (think Saffiano leather) to the color of their shoe box. Options for sole color, heel height, and shoe shade are endless, and you can even add a monogram.

The service will be available at all Prada stores with prices starting at $745. Meaning, it looks like I’ll be putting my July rent on hold.

High fashion and dessert? I think I speak for every woman when I say they’re pretty much the two best things on earth. And now, Italian fashion house Prada has had the ingenious idea to combine them.
