Cara Delevingne and singer Rita Ora are probably the hottest best friends on the planet, and they recently teamed up for a Hunger TV video featuring a remix of Rita’s song, “Facemelt”. I must say, it's fabulous. Directed by Rankin and set to cray beats, they dress in looks from Chanel, Prada and more. “Cara hijacking my video and my life and just basically hijacking me – it’s pretty awesome. She’s crazy like me. So it makes sense,” says Rita. How can you not love these gals?

My company The Fabulous Stains recently teamed up with one of my favorite Los Angeles based brands, The Bohemian Society, to collaborate on a Guest Artist T-shirt collection. Other guest artists include the amazing Luna Lovebad, Eugenie Grey, Chebo, Lucas Logan, Victor Wilde, Joana Ayala and Adina Doria!! We were so excited to be featured amongst such talented artists who continuously inspire us.
Each artist modeled a shirt of their own making and design that will be for sale for a limited time. Fab Stain, Norelle Rheingold illustrated the awesome pizza art (true to The Fabulous Stains form) for our tee and I finished it off - adding tie-dye and cutting off the sleeves...giving it that perfect California, summer vibe.
The t-shirt is currently available for purchase on their official site HERE, so make sure you head over there and shop away!

For those who've ever read my blog, they know I am highly obsessed with the brand Iron Fist Clothing! So I was super excited to catch a behind the scene glimpse of their Spring/Summer 2013 collection lookbook shoot. And to top it off, the video features music from my band, The Ruckus! So cool...check it out!
One of my favorite British models, Agyness Deyn, recently collaborated with Dr. Martens for a SS 2013 collection - including clothing, shoes and accessories. “As with the A/W-12 range, I wanted it to be accessible whilst having a slightly higher price point than high street fashion. It will appeal to girls who are confident and have a strong personal expression of style and identity in the way that they dress and what this says about themselves,” says Deyn. I am in love with the eyeball prints...I can't wait to get my hands on some of these pieces!
Which pieces are your favorites???
I am a HUGE fan of Sofia Coppola films, so I was super excited to see the trailer for her newest film, "The Bling Ring" starring Emma Watson. Based on facts, this comic thriller tracks the saga of the Hollywood Hills Burglar Bunch, who used the Web, paparazzi photos and scheduled publicity appearances to time their robberies of stars' homes. The teenage band stole millions in cash, jewelry and other items from victims including Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton and Rachel Bilson. This movie seriously looks so good! I love that young actors are starting to portray much darker characters!
Yesterday I attended the final runway day of the Los Angeles Fashion Council Collections with my good friend Sideara. The L.A Fashion Council Collections was specifically designed to provide a platform for L.A designers, press and buyers to converge and celebrate L.A talent...so incredible! The shows were held in the heart of the Fashion District and we had such a great time. I was so happy to run into Kelsi Smith, who actually founded the Los Angeles Fashion Council in 2011. It's so inspiring that she created this platform to promote, educate and support Los Angeles fashion designers. I got the chance to see three amazing collections. They were all super talented, up and coming designers - including SOLDAT, 8000 Nerves and Odylyne. I love supporting L.A. based designers. We had such a blast!
Today was the last day of WWD Magic and I must say, it’s been both exciting and exhausting! I started the day speaking on a panel with some of my fellow bloggers. We discussed the Buyer Boutique, some of the various brands in there, and how they can be beneficial to a fashion blogger. It was pretty interesting to see what everyone discovered. I also got to moderate another panel with some of my blogger friends. They picked out some cool fashion pieces and explained how to transform various outfits from day to night. It was definitely right up my alley. I’ve had such an amazing time at Magic. And I’m so happy I got to attend with such inspiring and influential bloggers!
One of my current favorite models, , recently hooked up with rock star Lenny Kravitz for the spring 2013 campaign for French label Eleven Paris. Celebrating 10 years, the the spread was shot by Renaud Corlouër in Miami, Florida...and was filled with art deco inspired prints and pastels.
What do you think about this unlikely pair? I'm diggin' it.
Elle Fanning recently starred in a Sigur Rós short film as a distraught ballerina who has a complicated relationship with her father. Directed by Floria Sigismondi (The Runaways), “Leaning Towards Solace” incorporates two tracks from the band’s most recent album. It takes place in a rural desert slum and it stars Fanning along with the great John Hawkes (Winter’s Bone) as her self-doubting father. The film is pretty uneventful, but is quite beautiful to watch nonethelss. Plus, there's a strange twist at the end. Watch it below and let me know what you think!
I'm compltetely in love with the new Hello Kitty Wild Things collection, which is exclusively at Sephora. And this video for the collection is incredible!
