This event happens once every four years

It's February 29!!!! I remember the last Feb. 29 was during 2008. Our prom was supposed to be held at that date but some event in Luneta or something caused it to be delayed to a much later date! Sayang! :(

Anyway, my news today is about one of my favorite top models of all time NATASHA POLY
Natasha Poly has walked the runways of every major fashion desginer in the world and working for almost 10 years (which is a lifetime in the modeling industry) she hasn't bag a beauty contract unlike other models like Raquel Zimmerman for Shiseido, Constance Jablonski, Joan Smalls, and Liu Wen for Estee Lauder and Doutzen Kroes for L'Oreal. But that is now to an end.

Many, many years after debuting on Emanuel Ungaro’s runway back in 2003, Natasha Poly has scored her first major beauty contract. “I’ve been doing modeling for almost ten years, and I’ve been working so hard to reach this moment,” Poly tells of being named L’Oréal Paris’ newest spokesmodel. “My dream came true. I’ve reached a point where I can actually send a message to people, saying to them, ‘You’re worth it — we’re worth it.”

“Natasha has a magnetic beauty that has established her major presence on the fashion scene in just a  few years. Stunningly beautiful, our new Russian icon has a glamorous, edgy sense of style, complemented by a striking personality. I am thrilled to welcome one of the worlds’ most talented supermodels who had truly made her outstanding density”, says Cyril Chapuy, Global Brand President of L’Oréal Paris.

While Poly swears by L’Oreal Youth Code Lumiere, ‘It refreshes your skin. I massage it in every morning’ she says. It's believed her first job for the brand will be fronting an ad campaign for Elnett hairspray, which Poly will know only too well - it's a backstage essential during fashion weeks.

She looks gorgeous on the picture! I cant wait for the commercial! :)

OK! I'm back for the Academy Awards fashion. And I must say this is an improvement from last year wherein Cate Blanchett was the sure win for best dressed. This year, everyone stepped up and was close to winning my best dressed. What's shocking is just like last year, this year's best dressed is not even nominated. I guess it's because their heads are clear from the nervousness of the competition. If you've been following me on twitter ( you already know who she is!

Best Dressed:
Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford: This is from the super secret Tom Ford Fall 2012 presentation held in London. My gosh! The cape is killing me!!!! It's soooo gorgeous!!!! i love this, a very fashion forward yet minimalist and clean look. If this is what's on Tom Ford's collection this season, then we should all save our money and go buy some of the dresses!!!! Tres chic!!!
Second best dressed: Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace. I love the fact that she was smiling and posing like a young actress and working that slit! She looks gorgeous as always!!!! She was posing like she was possessed by Blake Lively and Megan Fox! You go girl! :) I also love the fact that Angelina randomly picked tthis dress (out of a hat). She's that gorgeous that whatever she picks, it still looks great on her.
3rd Best Dressed: Rooney Mara in Givenchy Spring 2009 Couture --> This girl just gets it! She maintains this ever since "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" promo tour. This is the epitome of minimalist couture! Rooney Mara is surely a star to watch not just in acting but in fashion. I expect more magazine covers for her so that she'll be more exposed to expanding her style. Maybe a bit of jewelry? :)
4th Best Dressed: Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton- I super love this coral number!!! I just think it complements but upgrades that "quirky" style of hers! I can't explain it but we all agree she's in our best dressed list right? :)
5th Best Dressed: Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli Couture and now...
Please compare and contrast. Nicole Kidman in Balenciaga at Oscars 2006. This dress is so iconic I can't believe Emma Stone had the guts to wear that. But, I TOLD YOU BEFORE ABOUT GIAMBATTISTA VALLI RIGHT? His collection is a rip-off of every red carpet trend that works. Remember his first ever couture collection? Now visit his Spring 2012 couture. God, another fashion show composed of rip-offs. So sad. But Emma saves this with the styling. I SUPER LOVE THE VUITTON CHAIN BRACELET!

Those are my 5 best dressed. Now the others are special mention in the bestness or the worstness of their dresses. ;) YOU DECIDE!
Melanie Griffith in Yves Saint Laurent - I love it. The boobs need support though :) It's a bit slanted?
Sandra Bullock in Marchesa -meh! Boring.
Anna Farris in Diane Von Furstenburg- Looks like a shining garbage bag or something. If it was sleeveless and had a great sporty cut on the neck it would've been gorge for sure!
Berenice Bejo in Elie Saab- another sleeve story and it makes her look old. Sorry.
Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Muhrad - it looks like a Grammy Dress doesn't it. Should've worn something you bought JLo. :)
Shailene Woodley in Valentino Couture --- sleeves sleeves sleeves! It's cold that's why! And it makes her look old doesn't it? Wish she would've gone Marchesa or Givenchy or those finale Prabal Gurung fall 2012 dresses. :(
Busey Philips in Dolce and Gabbana- It's a great maxidress not appropriate for the Academy's (just my thought)
Cameron Diaz in Gucci Premiere - great dress! I'm starting to like her hair. It's actually her hair that prevented her from getting into my top 5. I wish it was a little bit longer. :) Still love Cameron though. WE SHARE THE SAME BIRTHDAY!!! WOOT! WOOT!
Ellie Kemper in Armani Prive - Di ko mawari ang kulay gel! It means I can't figure out the color!!! it's rusty, it's copper, it's gold, it's Armani bow! :)))
Glenn Close in Zac Posen -Zac! You go girl! I love this with or without the blazer! The blazer's a nice touch of being comfy because it was getting cold (according to the red carpet reporters!)
Jessica Chastain in Alexander McQueen - Cameron Diaz was #6 and Jessica was #7 on my best dressed! This is a risk that worked! I just loved it! She's been on a McQueen tour lately and this is the perfect way to go out with a bang! :)
Kristen Wiig in J Mendel - fits her personality actually. I love the fact that Kristen is so MEYNTEYN in her Cali girl image and making it very glamorous! I love the fact that her nails are black! I love it! The hair is just relaxed and I'm fine with that. :)
Melissa McCarthy in Marina Rinaldi- Don't worry I don't know who Marina Rinaldo is too! :))) It looks like a 70's prom dress though. But I love the bejeweled parts. :)
Meryl Streep in Lanvin -FINALLY! SHE WON! I believe she should've won for The Devil Wears Prada though. But she was amazing in The Iron Lady. She is dedicated to every part she plays and it is very recognized! I super love this dress to! It's that appropriate for her age but too glamorous that only she can wear it! :)
Mila Jovovich in Elie Saab- Love the shoulder pad! 
Natalie Portman in Vintage Dior -How vintage? 1954 VINTAGE! YES, MR. CHRISTIAN DIOR HIMSELF MADE THIS DRESS! I LOOVE IT! Natalie is #8 on my best dressed list! :) You go Nina!
Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji- Brand ambasadress much? Well, I don't hate don't love this dress but I must say it takes full commitment to wear a dress by one designer to all the awards events. YOU GO OCTAVIA! CONDRAGULATIONS!
Penelope Cruz in Giorgio Armani- Princess si Mars! Kfine! The color is gorgeous though! :)
Rose Byrne in Vivienne Westwood - Take notes Anna Faris. This is how to wear a sequin gown. I super love her hairrr. Drama mode! Meynteyn lang! :) Fashion forward as always!  #9 on my best dressed!
Stacey Keibler in Marchesa - I still remember Stacey sashaying on the WWE ring and entering with those long legs and teasing the audience with her small butt. How time's changed. She completes my best dressed list as #10. I super love the dress. Trophy girlfriend = panindigan! 

Tina Fey in Carolina Herrera - I love this! Simple yet elegant! Tina looks beautiful here!!!!
Viola Davis in Vera Wang - I seriously thought Viola was thinking she won because when Colin Firth announced the winner, Viola stood up first before Meryl. Feeling much? Kudos to her for wearing her real hair! You go girl! soooo empowering! And I love the dress how the taffeta and then the chiffon just goes like that! Super adore! good job Vera! :)

Til the next pose! ;)

No... I'm working on having a lookbook (but that doesn't mean I'm not going to have outfit posts here)
Also, I want to see if I can go to the fashion industry. Graduation is fast approaching.... (scared!)
So there... in case I might not post here, you know the reason.

Where are my priorities????

Fall 2012 menswear, Spring 2012 couture, and Fall 2012 RTW have come upon us and I'm not writing anything much about it. You might be wondering why. It's because of the changing image of this blog. As much as I want to talk about fashion week, I want it to be more personable. So basically what I plan to do is maybe show some looks from the runway and translate it to something more reachable. Using high street, DIY, or vintage finds to show the trends.

Gisele's back

Fresh off the SuperBowl controversy, Gisele released steam by doing something she does best. Walking for a fashion show. Of course, she has to close the show. And she closed the Alexander Wang Fall 2012 show. It's safe to say we now know who will be the face of the Alexander Wang campaign when September 2012 issues hit the newsstands. ;)

FALL 2012 has fallen upon us! And designers are now showing us the trends for the coming season.
You know I love me some Zac Posen but I can't help but post another one of this "Who did it better?" post. Recall the last time was Yves Saint Laurent vs Jil Sander and you said Yves Saint Laurent won. (We still love you Raf Simons)
Now it's Zac Posen Fall 2012 vs Rodarte Fall 2011. A year apart! So who did the coat + gown combo better?
Zac Posen Fall 2012
Rodarte Fall 2011
I love them both but Rodarte wins for me (not just because they were first) but also because I love both the dress and coat. I'm not loving the coat on Zac Posen. Dramatic gowns are Posen's specialty and we know that! :)
It's ok Zac. Go get 'em on Resort 2013. ;)
