Emily Blunt is the new face of YSL's Opium fragrance. The brand introduced the perfume in 1977 and features a spicy mix of mandarin orange, bergamot and lily of the valley. 

The British beauty stated of her new role, "I am very honoured to have been chosen to be the face of Opium. It is really exciting to embody a fragrance which has stood the test of time without its allure ever being diminished."

The campaign, which will begin in October, features the actress in both print and television ads. Shot by Romain Gavras, the television spots will feature Blunt and a leopard. Photographer, Patrick Demarchelier was in charge of the outdoor and magazine print ads.

Milan Fashion Week: D&G

It turns out today's Dolce and Gabbana/D&G show in Milan will be their last. Women's Wear Daily reports the newer, sportier D&G line will be swallowed up by the main line.

For D&G's curtain call collection, they created an homage to the late Gianni Versace, it included bright prints galore in classic Italian/Euro-chic.

Platform sandals with similar prints dominated the catwalk as well.

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana went minimal on the styling -- models displayed a natural look with flowing hair. 

Some models sported shades and small clutches as if they were headed to Ibiza for the weekend. Others strutted the runway with a strong eyebrow and minimal lip color.

London Fashion Week: Antonio Berardi

From the crisp, tailored jackets to the beaded leggings, Antonio Berardi’s Spring 2012 collection covered something for every woman’s taste. The collection, which included dresses with form-fitting armor-like bodices and wispy flowing skirts, married the concept of warrior woman and fairy princess. The structured dresses of the collection contained minimal detailing and straight lines.






Multi-colored beaded leggings were paired with menswear style jackets and flowing chiffon tunics, showing versatility. Several outfits included crisp white capri pants, which could become a staple for spring 2012.

The ankle cuff heel in silver, maroon and teal, worn throughout, harmonized the collection.


The models primarily wore hairstyles slicked back in the front and soft and flowing in the back. Minimal makeup was worn with either a nude lip color or a stark burgundy.

Starbucks Teams with Alexander Wang for Limited Edition T-Shirts~

Coffee just became even more fashionable! To celebrate their 40th Anniversary, Starbucks teamed with three well known fashion designers to create a line of limited edition t-shirts. Alexander Wang, Sophie Theallet and Billy Reid each have designed new Starbucks t-shirts which retail for $85.

Each tee will be sold in not only Starbucks, but Nordstrom stores and online as well.

The signature tees feature the instantly-recognizable Starbucks logo, although slightly masked by Wang's coffee stained creation. Alexander Wang said of his design, “The first thing we thought of was what everyone tries to avoid—spilled coffee on a T-shirt.” 


Theallet’s design has a fitted shape with grosgrain ribbon, and Reid’s has a preppy, yet worn-in style.

Which shirt will you add to your fashionable collection?

Milan Fashion Week: Gucci

Frida Giannini's latest Gucci collection opened up Milan Fashion Week in a spectacle of variety, shimmer and color. The first look set the stage as Joan Smalls owned the runway in a pair of high-waisted black, flowing trousers paired with a magnificently printed blazer in angular yellow and green. The show that followed suit was an unforced one, as the looks, silhouettes and colors transformed throughout -- yet still chic; still cohesive.

Take a look at some of the top looks from the runway:


High-waisted trouser, python bag

Sand-colored top, white skirt w/ black sash belt


Shimmering gold and black fringe dress

The show, especially toward the end, seemed to be a reiteration of recent trends, particularly python and a small hint of "warrior" woman with these
"Givenchy" looking dresses glossed in gold. Gold, however, is definitely the trend of the season, so be on a look out for more gold and yellow from other designers on the runways of Milan and finally Paris.

Let us know your thoughts on the collection and be sure to follow Fashion Wrap Up on Twitter for more Fashion Week updates!

London Fashion Week: Meadham Kirchhoff

It was a mash of the circus meeting the "club kid" scene of the late 80s/early 90s in Manhattan at the Meadham Kirchhoff show
in London.

The show reportedly featured plenty to look at, adding to the circus feel of the event. That included tiny ballet dancers, birds, and balloons.







Ed Meadham and Ben Kirchhoff are known for mixing the avant-garde with a bit of punk, and the Spring 2012 collection is no exception to that. The Spring 2011collection shared similar styling with the new collection.



Models, wearing blonde wigs of all shapes and styles, strutted in brightly-colored tights or thigh-high stockings. They wore boy-cut shorts, cropped jackets and frilly dresses...almost like living kewpie dolls.  

The models' make-up matched the collection: bright and bold and not hard to forget. Some models even sported blue or pink eyebrows.

London Fashion Week: Burberry Prorsum

Burberry and Creative Director Christopher Bailey have moved the iconic fashion label to a social networking and internet mainstay -- including giving away free samples on its Facebook site).

This time, the holograms and theatrics were set aside for a simpler tableau. The colors were harkening toward African tribal design which also popped on a few of the dresses and coats.  

Bailey did stick with the famous Burberry trench, but put a variety of new spins on the look. This included bright patterns and colors, along with intricate accessories. 

The menswear also displayed what people have come to expect from the storied label: fitted suits and shirts, shown as part of layers as winter transitions to spring (in London of course). 

Topping off the looks was what fashion journalists have seen much of in the spring collections -- larger than life platforms and interesting hats (bobbles on top in this instance).
