Kate Moss launches new Longchamp handbag collection

Kate Moss,36, does it all. She is the biggest fashion icon in the world, created a successful clothing line, developed four of her own perfumes, and is sometimes a London rockstar.  Now, she is a also a handbag designer. After modeling the brand for years, Moss partnered with Longchamp to create twelve different styles named after her favorite London places such as Soho.The bags are very vibrant, yet classic, and have plenty of Kate. Moss worked with artistic director Sophie Delafontaine to create a wearable line that represented her most idealistic bags.

The collection will be available in London on February 11th.
Moss and Longchamp celebrated the collection launch last night in Paris at the Ritz hotel. She showed up decked in Louboutins, lace, and silver streaks throughout her blond hair. The streaks were questionable but probably just Kate's way of mixing it up and keeping people guessing. Earlier that day, she showed at up at Stella McCartney's spring/summer show wearing a bag from her own collection.

The collection will be available here in Boston on the 11th as well.  To get on a waiting list call (617)425-0740 for Longchamp Boston at 139 Newbury Street.

And the SAG goes to......

The 2010 SAG awards was definitely an interesting show of fashion. Without all the extreme glam of the Academy Awards, this red carpet show was more accessible and ready wear. Little touches to the actresses showed their personalities in the accessories.

Instead of one major trend, there were many. The color white once again was a main component. Kate Hudson chose the color again dressed in Pucci, since the Globes last week and look stunning. The front of the dress was completely modest but allowing for the sexiest back. Stylist, Rachel Zoe, turned Kate's Cartier necklace backwards allowing it to drip down her back, a totally unique, beautiful idea.

Marion Coltilliard also shined in a Ellie Saab Haute Couture. Her updo was a twenties bun allowing this asymetrical modern mini-dress to take center stage. The feathers surrounding the bottom were refreshing and the bold sequin embellishments allowed for such a perfection combination. The Chopard emerald was exactly the right amount of color.

Drew Barrymore wowed again in a navy in Monique Lhuillier in opposition to the nude color choice last week. Lhuillier is known for femininity and this dress defined it with the trumpet cascading tiered detailed skirt. Her hair took a risk with the bouffant but Drew managed to pull it off. The simple makeup, bare neck and wrists, pulled this whole look together. The dress spoke for itself.

This biggest risk taker in the color category was Diane Kruger in her marigold Jason Wu gown. The train on the dress was so classic yet once again is the modern asymertical shoulder making an appearance. She wore it perfectly right down to the red lips, Harry Winston ruby jewels and the contrast in the gold clutch.
The surprise stunner for the night was Michelle Monaghan who sparkled in her custom beaded Calvin Klein gown. It was so different and unlike any dress of the evening. The way the color silver and purple trickled down was gorgeous. The one bare arm was the sexy touch to this look along with the long tousled waves brushed to the side.

For similiar gowns, head to Neiman Marcus in the Prudential Center on Boylston Street in Boston.

This season, nails are straying away from the black and navy colors to more neutral, soft shades. Nude fabrics are all over the runway this season. The new hues on hands are those of taupe, nude, grey, and some sheer gold tones. This look flatters any shade of skin so have fun and try them on. Some of the best versions are Essie "Chinchilly", a sleek granite gray or OPI "You Don't Know Jaques".
Pamper yourself at My ManiPedi Spa in the South End. With such a serene environment and an adorable nail bar, patrons cannot seem to stay away. The best part of a nail service is the optional $10 shoulder massage given while the manicure is drying. A mani/pedi is $37 and the staff is super professional. Walk-ins are taken and waxing is also offered.  Step out into the snow and treat yourself to a splash of spring. Add a pop of color on toes with Essie "Mint Candy Apple", a creme de menthe hue.
