Thylane Léna Rose Blondeau (°5 April 2001) has a reputation as a fashion model since the age of four. At the moment she is only ten years old and she already appeared in Vogue.

One to watch, ‘cause the gorgeous girl has only just begun!

Confessions of a shopaholic

A man will never love you or treat you as well as a store.
If a man doesn't fit, you can't exchange him seven days later for a gorgeous cashmere sweater.
And a store always smells good.
A store can awaken a lust for things you never even knew you needed.
And when your fingers first grasp those shiny, new bags... oh yes.

Valentino F/W 2011/2012

Prêt à porter

The F/W collection of Valentino this year is… well,indescribable.

My god, I love the label! Lots of soft pink shades, bows, headbands and low ponytails. 
‘Extravagant simplicity’ would be the appropriate term. The collection is very down to earth, but sometimes we see some sparkles. The make-up was kept natural, in order all the attention went to the fabulous clothes.

Haute couture 

Just like the collection mentioned above,
the haute couture collection was designed by
Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, and if possible even more dazzling.

The haute couture collection was shown at
Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild, 11 rue Berryer, Paris
. The make-up was similar to the prêt à porter collection and the ponytails made place for small buns placed low in the neck.
The haute couture showed us some drama, but also made me think of fairies.
Lots of light fabrics, pastel shades and glittering headbands.
There were some black dresses, a lot of bridal pieces and two bright red dresses (Valentino wouldn’t be Valentino without those).

I strongly recommend you to take a look at the videos, so sit back and fall completely in love with this marvelous collection.

What’s on your wish list of her B-E-A-Utiful collection?

World's most beautiful woman

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (24) was recently voted by GQ magazine and Maxim magazine as most beautiful woman in the world.

Since 2006, Rosie is one of the Victoria's Secret models. She did also modeling work for Bloomingdale's, DKNY, Shiatzy Chen, Frenchtown Connection, Pepe Jeans and Ralph Lauren.
In my opinion she’s worth the title. What do you think about her?

Les Nouveaux Coco's

Fancy ladies will be running around the streets during autumn and winter 2011-2012!

 Karl Lagerfeld gave a tribute to Coco Chanel in his last collection of haute couture.
That means a lot of tweed, long gloves, suits and knee skirts... The keywords are simplicity and elegance.

Gabrielle Bonheur 'Coco' Chanel made her debut in fashion in the roaring twenties.

She was the one who made up the “garçonne-style” and gave liberty to women in their clothing during WWI. She dressed women in sweaters and pleated skirts with reduced waist.

"Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury. " 

“Dress shabbily
and they remember the dress;
dress impeccably

and they remember the woman.”
        - Coco Chanel

Welcome to Shopportunities!

According to several horoscopes (which I strongly believe in) of Glam * It's Great Career Number’  "I am fully paid up on my plans", and Flair magazine "ideal time to undertake something new", and a career article in the same Glam * It " I’d better start my personal blog..."         


Of course, there will be much more to find than just fashion. Also about movies, music, makeup, places to be and much more.
Have fun reading!

xoxo, A.
