The "Kim" Blazer

We all know that the blazer is Kim's staple look, but of all the gorgeous and stylish blazers she has, there is this particular white one that i love. The style, the large continuous collar, the color, I love every bit of it. I always wanted to get a similar one but i just never found that particular style so i finally decided to make myself one. Although in a different color, its still as beautiful as the one i have been coveting.

I decided to go with one of the colors for this season, Hyacinth. Hope u like it.............

Style Star: Kim Kardashian

You have to hand it to Kim; she is the multitasking celebrity of the year. Face and body of so many products that we cant "Keep Up" anymore. The sexy reality star's incredible bod makes it almost impossible for her to look bad; but what I really love about Kimmy is her 100% sexed up glamour - from the plunging necklines and mini skirts to those sky high Louboutins, she knows just the right amount of flesh to expose.  The key to Kim's style is dressing for your body type; she accentuates her curves with form fitting dresses and maintains a strong shoulder with jackets, blazers and shoulder pads; this balances the rest of her body and focuses on her tiny waist.

Not a fan of her personal life, Kim was undoubtedly the most stylish star of  2011. We cant keep our eyes of her. Who needs a husband, as long as kim steps out with her equally stylish sisters, she will remain a regular fixture on the stylish pages; its all about fashion double acts right now.

Here are some pictures of my favorite Kim looks:

Elie Saab: Minimalist Fashion

Elie Saab, born July 4, 1964, is a Lebanese fashion designer. In 1982, Saab launched his fashion label when he was 18 years old. His main workshop is in Lebanon. He also has workshops in Milan and Paris. He was an overnight success after he became the first Lebanese designer to dress an Oscar winner, Hally Berry, in 2002 for the Academy Awards when she won for Best Actress. Berry later wore another dress by Saab, this time a gold dress, to the 2003 Oscars.

Elie Saab's reputation as a red-carpet designer is well earned. He also has been emphasizing day wear in his pre-collections of late. He took a strict, almost minimalist approach, cutting most of his suits and dresses in monotone shades of nude, blue, or black and keeping decorative details like a fox collar, a peplum waist, or contrast piping to a minimum.

I love Elie Saab, he is the designer of my dreams. Clean cuts, impeccable tailoring, attention to details, simple designs; its a minimalist's dream. Saab's biggest evening statement this season was sequins, which came set into plissé pleats. When he went unembellished, the drama came from languid and floaty seventies-ish silhouettes with tie necks or sexy asymmetrical necklines and up-to-there slits. There was also lace, which was actually most interesting when it was barely detectable, set into seams of neat wool daywear dresses. It's basically impossible not to be inspired by his creations. HERE THEY ARE.........
