Coco Rocha has taken over sass & bide’s social media channels, just as she threatened to, taking the matter of the label’s A/W ’13 campaign into her own hands. The supermodel was revealed as the face of the latest line late last week after a long tease – did you guess it was Ms Rocha? To celebrate the stylish dictatorship, the s&b crew are doing free shipping from their e-store, we which personally like to shop via shopstyle.com.au (the size/price/sale tabs are a godsend). Want in? Scoot on over and nab the exact striped strides that Coco wears in her first self-styled shoot of her five day residency. What are you waiting for?
The countdown to Christmas is officially on (scary! exciting!) and we, just like the rest of the nation, are knee-deep in choosing presents for our loved ones. When it comes to buying for someone special — or for the lady in your life who literally has everything — perfume is the perfect gift. But not just any old juice, we like to splurge on new fragrances on shelf. Fittingly, Juicy Couture has given their iconic scent, Viva la Juicy, a makeover, and gosh is it feminine.
Viva la Juicy La Fleur EDT 150ml ($145) is a sheer and soft floral bouquet — perfect for a Summer full of spontaneity and, dare we say it, love. Just like the original, the model muse for the scent is Sasha Pivovarova but this time, she's awash with the excitement of love at first sight. And what does all-encompassing, can't-catch-your-breath true love smell like? Think mandarin, wild berries, dewy honeysuckle, gardenia petals and jasmine. Perfect.

During her recent Sydney sojourn, she was snapped not once but twice in her classic, gold-rimmed shades — proving that this timeless style is not immune to the trend-time-cycle, but also mighty versatile.

Meet the newest kid on the sunglasses block; the geo-frame. A graphic shape will separate you from the pack this season, just ask Rihanna! Forget gilded arms or glitterfied frames — a strong geometric shape is the easiest way to make a statement without saying a word. It's one part unexpected to two parts fun, especially if you pick a solid colour to really make the shape pop. Wanna give it a whirl? Keep clicking to see five of our favourites . . .
If Kate Moss is an expert on anything, it's how to look cool. Capital C-cool. Sure a rockstar hubby, wardrobe filled with perfectly distressed denim and a slew of fabulously famous friends help — but we think it might be in some part due to her trusty wayfarer shades. Popularised by the original Brat Pack back in the '50s, then taken up by the pop-star-types of Madonna and Michael Jackson in the '80s, these sharp-edged shades give a back-of-the-bus attitude to any ensemble. Wanna run with the cool kids? Then think of the following five styles as your ticket in.
If there was any doubt that cats-eye sunglasses still had relevance, we'd like you to take a look at exhibit A: Olivia Palermo. Ms P frocked up for her front row duties back in July at Valentino's haute couture fashion show in Paris looking the biz in these killer shades, and we're still thinking about them. This season the cats-eye shape is even more exaggerated — with contrast tips and glitter frames drawing attention to the alluring flick. Sold? Then step right this way to see five of our favourite feline styles.
Oh Alexa, do you ever get it wrong? We put this pic of you on file for when it comes time to invest in a pair of new season shades.
