Nema šanse da ne prepoznajete ove farmerke jer ih već milioniti put nosim, ali toliko su udobne i svestrane da ne izlazim iz njih. Uz to su bile savršena protivteža trendu kome sam se čak i ja priklonila bez oklevanja. Kad smo već kod toga, najiskrenije mrzim ovako neinovativne nazive za postove, ničim inspirisane kao da u njih nije utrošena ni trunka razmišljanja, ali ovaj bodi i baletanke koji su stvoreni jedni za druge su ukrali šou. Pertle na pertle, zašto da ne?


There's no way that you can't recognize these jeans since I'm wearing them for the millionth time, but they are so cozy and versatile that I barely ever take them off. Aside from that they were a perfect counter attack to the trend that even I included in my wardrobe without thinking. Speaking of which, I honestly hate such post titles with no creativity, inspired by nothing as if there was no thought put into it, but this bodysuit and flats that are a match made in heaven just stole the show. Lace ups on lace ups, why not?

Ako moram da izaberem omiljenu društvenu mrežu (kojima nisam naročito opterećena) onda bi to bio Tumblr, mada je Instagram na drugom mestu. Otkako sam videla šta sve kamera mog telefona može, sve češće fotografišem i eksperimetišem sa filterima, i moram da priznam, zabavno je. Jedino što me nervira jeste algoritam koji je instaliran u dotičnu aplikaciju otkako ga je Facebook otkupio jer mi sada slike iskaču bez ikakvog reda, a kosa mi se, blago rečeno, diže na glavi kada vidim apsolutnu dezorganizaciju. Nisam oduševljena ni novim izgledom, nekako mi je za srce prirasla plava tema i onaj preslatki mali foto-aparat. Da li vi imate Instagram nalog, koliko ga često koristite i šta mislite o ovim... promenama?


If I had to pick a favourite social network (though I'm not obsessing over those) it would be Tumblr, though Instagram is in second place. Ever since I saw what my phone's camera can capture, I photograph more and more often and experiment with different filters, and I have to admit, it's kinda fun. The only thing that annoys me is the algorithm installed in the app since Facebook bought it because I can see pictures appearing on my dash without any order, and seeing absolute disorganization gives me the creeps to say the least. I'm not impressed by the new layout either, I somehow grew attached to the blue theme and that cute little camera. Do you have an Instagram account, how often do you use it and what do you think of these... changes?



Spring shopping spree


KIKO Milan foundation in Warm Beige 30, KIKO Milan Luxurious Lashes mascara, M•A•C Pink Treat slip on lip liner  //  H&M necklace, Meli Melo sunglasses  //  More Issues Than Vogue phone case from mycase.rs, everything else from H&M  //  Zuiki striped blazer  //  Lace up flats from a local store  //  NIKE sneakers  //  Zuiki sandals

Poslednjih nekoliko dana sam putovala i posetila nekoliko gradova u Italiji, a potom i Temišvar. Kao i svako tipično žensko, koliko god da kupujem ja jednostavno nemam šta da obučem, i uvek moram da banem u neku prodavnicu ili tržni centar da pogledam imaju li nešto što mi treba ili mi se baš sviđa. Pored odeće uvek vrebam i kozmetiku da dopunim zalihe, i što se oba tiče imala sam sreće.



Love the way you tat me up





Olive green parka from H&M  //  Tokio Hotel Kings of Suburbia t-shirt  //  SheIn boyfriend jeans  //  Oasap bag  //  Gold&Gold ankle boots (purchased in Copenhagen, Denmark)


Oni koji žive u Beogradu, kao i oni koji su u njemu bili, primetiće da na ovim slikama nisam bila tamo. Ovo je zapravo Temišvar u Rumuniji koji posećujem već četvrti put, i mislim da ga nikada nisam videla ovako lepog. Restauracija grada je skoro sasvim završena i bilo bi lepo da ga i sami vidite. :)
Pošto nisam mogla da predvidim kakvo će vreme biti (pet različitih sajtova, pet različitih vremenskih prognoza, stvarno frustrirajuće), odlučila sam se za slojevitost - majica koju mnogo volim (i za koju nisam ni imala pojma da je zapravo muška dok nisam videla koliko mi je S velika), jakna koja je verovatno jedina stvar koju imam u maslinastozelenoj boji koju sam do nedavno mrzela iz dna duše, udobne farmerke visokog struka, torba koja mi je taman dovoljna za ono najosnovnije, i vodootporne cipele, zlu ne trebalo. Moji ukusi se menjaju i to mi se donekle sviđa jer postepeno dobijam sve više ideja kako da i one stvari koje sam pre izbegavala uklopim u svoj stil. Ovo je ispalo i bolje nego što sam očekivala, šta vi mislite? ;)


Those who live in Belgrade, as well as those who've been there, will surely notice that I wasn't there when these pictures were taken. This is actually Timișoara in Romania that I visited for the fourth time so far, and I think that I've never seen it looking this beautiful. The restoration of this city is nearly complete and it would be nice for you to see it yourself. :)
Since I couldn't predict the weather (five different websites showed five different weather forecasts, really frustrating), I went with a layered outfit - the t-shirt I really like (and that I had no idea was a men's piece until I saw how large even S was for me), a jacket that is probably the only clothing item I have in olive green that I hated from the bottom of my heart until recently, cozy high-waist jeans, a bag which is just right for everything I needed, and waterproof shoes just in case. My tastes are changing and I sort of like that mainly because I'm getting more and more ideas on how to include even the things that I used to avoid into my wardrobe. This turned out better than I expected, what do you think? ;)




Met Gala 2016


Nakon što sam iskoristila nekoliko prvih slobodnih dana da pobegnem iz rodnog grada i malo se odmorim, red je da se vratim, ali sve dok se ovo vreme ne smiluje da mi dozvoli da uslikam outfit, pozabaviću se događajem od koga internet i dalje zvoni na sve strane. Mislim, stvarno, kakva sam ja to modna blogerka ako ne prokomentarišem ovogodišnju Met Gala? Stvarno nema smisla! A sada se pripremite.
Ove godine tema Met Gala je bila "Manus x Machina - moda u doba tehnologije". Iskreno, nemam pojma šta su time hteli da kažu briljantni umovi kojima je to palo na pamet, ali ono što znam jeste da čim se pomenu izrazi "tehnologija", "budućnost" i tome slično, poznati (ili pre njihovi stilisti) momentalno pomisle na "metalik", i to je kliše koji se provukao kroz najmanje 90% kombinacija. Dok su ljudi masovno oduševljeni brojnim izdanjima poznatih ličnosti koje su prisustvovale ove godine (od kojih za neke ja tek prvi put čujem i i dalje nemam pojma ko su i čime se bave), meni je došlo da razbijem sebi glavu o najbliži zid. Crveni tepih je, na veliku žalost, barem u mojim očima, postao sinonim za nadmetanje ko će napraviti najveću budalu od sebe u cilju da bude opisan kao modni vizionar, guru ili genije u medijima. Kada bi unakažavanje na crvenom tepihu bilo olimpijski sport, bilo bi više zlatnih medalja nego ikada u istoriji Olimpijskih igara od momenta kada su nastale u bilo kojoj drugoj disciplini. Znam, znam, već vidim kako se mrštite i sigurno mislite kako sam negativna do koske i samo umem da pljujem, pitajući se šta ja koji đavo znam o modi i stilu kada sebi dajem za pravo da ovako govorim, ali ovo nije ništa drugo do moje lično mišljenje i nema potrebe da se bilo ko vređa. Izdvojiću neka od izdanja koja su mi privukla najviše pažnje i reći najiskrenije moguće zašto mi se dotično dopada ili ne. Da počnemo?

After using a few of my days off to get away from my hometown and get some rest, it's about time for me to come back, but until this weather has some mercy and allows me to shoot an outfit post, I'll deal with the event that is still all over the internet. I mean, come on, what kind of a fashion blogger would I be if I didn't comment on this year's Met Gala? Really makes no sense! And now brace yourselves.
This year's Met Gala event theme was "Manus x Machina - fashion in the age of technology". I honestly have no clue whose bright idea that was, but what I do know is that as soon as someone says "technology", "future" and so on, the first thing that celebrities (or their stylists, to be exact) think of is "metallic", and that is the cliché that inspired at least 90% of the outfits for the event. While people are mostly fascinated by many editions of celebrities that attended this year (among which are those that I heard of for the very first time and still have no idea who they are and what they do for a living), I wanted to crack open my skull against the nearest wall. The red carpet has, sadly, turned into a synonym for a competition on who's gonna make the greatest idiot of themselves while aiming to be described as a fashion visionary, guru or genius in the media. If looking ridiculous on the red carpet was an Olympic sport, there would be more golden medals awarded than at any time in history since the Olympic games came to be, in any discipline and any other sport. I know, I know, I can see you frowning and you're surely thinking how I'm negative to the core and I can only talk trash, wondering what the hell I know about fashion and style to have the right to speak like this, but this is nothing more than my personal opinion and there is no need for anyone to feel insulted. I'll show some outfits that caught most of my attention and say why I like them or not in the most honest way possible. So, shall we begin?



Prva na redu je Alicia Vikander (Google kaže da je glumica, bolje da mu verujem na reč) u Louis Vuitton kreaciji. Nemam pojma na kojim je psihoaktivnim supstancama bio onaj ko je ovo dizajnirao i šio, ali ja lično ne kapiram ovaj haos od haljine. Razumem potrebu da se pomeraju granice mode i da se spaja nespojivo, ali ovo je već smešno. Koža izgleda kao da je zihernadlom zakačena preko šljokica, i čitava haljina izgleda kao hrpa boja i materijala nabacanih bez ikakvog reda. Što se cipela tiče, opet kapiram ideju da se svečanoj odeći doda malo oštrine grubljim cipelama, ali ovo izgleda ili kao patofna sa gumenom štiklom ili kao propali pokušaj stilizovanja obuće za skijanje. Frizura i šminka su suptilna klasika, ali ubedljivo najveći uspeh od svega navedenog.

First up is Alicia Vikander (Google says she's an actress, so I'll believe it) in Louis Vuitton. I have no idea what psychoactive substances the person who designed and sewed this was on, but I personally don't get this chaos of a dress. I understand the need to push the boundaries of fashion and to match things that look like they can't go together, but this is ridiculous. The leather looks like it was attached to the glitter with a safety pin, and the whole dress looks like a pile of colors and fabrics randomly thrown one on top of the other. When it comes to shoes, again, I get the idea of using rough shoes to give some edge to a formal outfit, but this looks either like a house slipper with a rubber heel or a failed attempt to reinvent skiing footwear. The hair and make up are subtle classics, but definitely the greatest success among all the above.




Beyoncé je kraljica, što je dokazala više puta, i niko se ne usuđuje to da dovodi u pitanje. Rasturila je s novim albumom, kida na koncertima, govori o temama koje se uzimaju zdravo za gotovo i postala je simbol savremene žene. Kao kraljica je svakako zaslužila neuporedivo više od ovog Givenchy izdanja koje je, po mom mišljenju, jedno od njenih najgorih. Oni koji znaju biologiju koliko i ja verovatno će pomisliti da izgleda kao endoplazmatični retikulum sa ribozomima, ali za one koji nemaju pojma o čemu pričam parafraziraću - lateks je materijal koji degradira. Što ga više nosite, to jefitnije izgledate. Naravno da nemam ništa protiv jednog komada od dotičnog materijala koji se lepi za kožu i neopisivo je neudoban ako baš insistirate, ali kada se u njega odenete od glave do pete jednostavno nema šanse da izgledate dobro. Kosa joj je perfektna kao i uvek, ali što se šminke tiče ova zelena senka izgleda neuredno i preagresivno. Ova žena je dragocena kao zlato i dijamanti i njena šminka bi trebalo da bude u skladu sa tim. Moje jedino objašnjenje za to što ovako izgleda jeste da ju je stilizovala Becky sa dobrom kosom, a kome nije jasno o čemu pričam, pod hitno da presluša njen album Lemonade, smesta.


Beyoncé is the queen, which she keeps proving constantly, and no one dares to question it. She killed it with her newest album, she slays on her concerts, she speaks of issues that are still taken for granted and became the symbol of a modern woman. As a queen she surely deserved so much more than this Givenchy edition which is, in my opinion, one of her worst. Those who know biology as much as I do will probably think that she looks like an endoplasmic reticulum with ribosomes attached to it, but for those who have no idea what I'm talking about I'll paraphrase - latex is a fabric that downgrades. The more of it you wear, the cheaper you look. Of course I don't mind one piece made of this fabric that sticks to the skin and is extremely unpleasant to wear if you insist, but if you dress in it from head to toe there is absolutely no way for you to look good. Her hair is as perfect as always, but when it comes to her make up this green eyeshadow looks messy and way too aggressive. This woman is as precious as gold and diamonds, and her make up should depict that. My only explanation to why she looks like this is that she was styled by Becky with the good hair, and if you don't get what I just said, go listen to her album Lemonade, now.




Sledeća na redu je Jourdan Dunn u srebrnoj Balmain haljini. Haljina je tipične estetike za Balmain, ali mislim da je taj brend sposoban za mnogo više. Ne znam da li je do metalik odsjaja (evo prvog primera klišea u interpretaciji teme večeri) koji prosto bode oči ili do toga što izgleda kao da su slojevi tkanine lepljeni jedan na drugi, ali neko ko je prava lepotica poput ove žene iziskuje sofisticiranu kreaciju koja naglašava sve njene estetske kvalitete, a ne jeftini pokušaj moćnog rendžera. S druge strane, njena kosa je umetnost i oduševljena sam kako je iznijansirana u aktuelnom trendu sive boje.

Next up is Jourdan Dunn in a silver Balmain dress. The dress is a typical Balmain creation, though I think the brand is capable of so much more. I don't know if it's because of the metallic shine (here is the first example of the cliché of the theme interpretation) that is barely possible to look at or because it looks like the layers of fabric were stuck one on top of the other, but someone who is a true beauty like this woman deserves a sophisticated creation that emphasizes her existing aesthetic qualities, and not a cheap take on power rangers. On the other hand, her hair is pure art and I love how it's shaded in a currently trendy grey hair color.



A sada, neko ko je patentirao trenutno najprodavaniju šminku za usne, a sam ih nije ni imao do prošle godine. Kylie Jenner koja nosi Balmain, dame i gospodo! Što se ove devojke tiče, moje mišljenje o njoj kao javnoj ličnosti je nedefinisano - u nekim momentima mi izgleda apsolutno prelepo i tad se pitam šta nije u redu sa mnom, a češće od toga se pitam koji kvrc ima u glavi da pomisli da je nešto postigla u životu da bi se šetala crvenim tepihom kao neko ko zapravo ima karijeru na kojoj je radio. Tužna istina u poslednje vreme je ta da je Balmain kao brend tesno vezan za Kardashian/Jenner klan, zbog čega mi se iskreno plače jer taj brend stvarno volim i ne mogu da verujem da nešto tako lepo, ekstravagantno i elegantno nose oni koji nisu ni nokat slomili da bi postali poznati. Što se ovoga tiče, kosa joj izgleda zapanjujuće zdravo i negovano s obzirom na to da je promenila više boja nego ja čarapa za ceo dan, a i šminka je klasična i prikladna za kreaciju koja bi trebalo da govori dovoljno sama po sebi. Kada je u pitanju haljina, tipičan Balmain kič, uključujući i rese za koje nemam pojma čemu služe jer ne izgledaju dobro, mada gornji deo izgleda prilično elegantno. Prvi razlog zašto ovaj divan brend koji obožavaju mnogi polako srlja nizbrdo. Uživaj u slavi svoje starije polusestre, nebitno kako je do nje došla, ima to svojih prednosti.

And now, someone who launched the current bestseller in lip make up, and didn't even have lips of their own until last year. Kylie Jenner wearing Balmain, ladies and gentlemen! When it comes to this girl, my opinion on her as a celebrity is undefined - at some moments she looks absolutely gorgeous to me and it makes me wonder what's wrong with me, but more often I ask myself what kind of bug she had in her head to think that she accomplished something in life to actually walk the red carpet as someone who actually has a career they actually worked on. The sad truth lately is that Balmain as a brand is literally bound to the Kardashian/Jenner clan, which honestly makes me cry because I really love this brand and I can't believe that something so beautiful, extravagant and elegant is worn by those who didn't even break a nail to become famous. When it comes to this, her hair looks surprisingly healthy and nurtured, considering that she changes her hair color more often than I change socks during the day, and the make up is classic and appropriate for the creation that should say enough by itself. The dress is typical Balmain kitsch, including the tassels that I have no idea what they're for because they do not look good, though the upper part looks pretty elegant. The first reason why this gorgeous brand loved by so many is slowly spiraling downwards. Enjoy your older step-sister's fame, it doesn't matter how she got it, it has its perks.



 Kim Kardashian West, a delimično i Kanye West, sledeći su razlozi što se Balmain sve više dovodi u vezu sa marginama šoubiznisa. To što se od tebe traži da pokažeš svoje viđenje savremene mode ne znači da treba da se pospeš perlicama i šljokicama kao da ti je cilj da te obese za plafon i zavrte kao disko kuglu. Metalik kao osnovno shvatanje mode u doba tehnologije prisutno je čak i ovde, i ovo nije ništa drugo do nedostatak kreativnosti. Šminka idealna, zalizana kosa jako otmena, haljina je odvratna i čak ni ne izgleda kao skladna celina, već kao dva odvojena komada koja nemaju veze jedan s drugim. Kladim se da su manje robotski izgledali i likovi iz Star Wars VII: Buđenje Sile. Pošto Kanye kao dežurni kreten muzičke industrije i svega što je tesno vezano za nju ne zaslužuje ni mrvicu pažnje za koju tako jadno preklinje, za njega ću reći samo jedno - beli hodači vrebaju iza ledenog Zida u Igri Prestola, ne na Met Gali.

Kim Kardashian West, and partly Kanye West, are the next reasons why Balmain is more and more related to the margins of show business. Just because you are asked to show your view on contemporary fashion doesn't mean you should sprinkle yourself with pearls and glitter like you want to be hung from the ceiling and spun like a disco ball. Metallic as the basic understanding of fashion in the age of technology is present even here, and this is nothing more than lack of creativity. Ideal make up, slicked hair looks really classy, the dress is revolting and it doesn't even look like a whole, but like two separate pieces that have nothing to do with one another. I bet that even the characters from Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens looked less robotic. Since Kanye as the everpresent asshole of the music industry and everything related to it doesn't deserve an itsy bitsy piece of attention he so pathetically begs for, I can only say one thing about him - the white walkers lurk behind the icy Wall on Game of Thrones, not on the Met Gala.



 Ne znam da li je na Met Gali bilo uspavane lepotice, ali Grdana je svakako došla. Kris Jenner je moja sledeća meta. Da nisam pročitala da je ovo Balmain haljina, nikada ne bih ni pogodila. U stvari, možda i bih jer se čitav Kardashian/Jenner klan napalio na njega izigravajući neke otmene face koje su sa pravom tu gde jesu. Ove žene se gnušam iz mnogo, mnogo, mnogo razloga, i kada vidim kakva je ona ne čudi me naročito što su joj deca takva kakva jesu. Ako hoćete da vas oblači Balmain i da dobijate prestižne pozivnice za ekskluzivne događaje, recept je jednostavan - nađite bogatog muža, porodite se par puta, onda opet nađite bogatog i poznatog muža, porodite se još par puta, a onda kada vam se jedno od dece nađe u žiži javnosti iz ekstremno pogrešnog razloga iskoristite to i strpajte celu porodicu u reality. Lakše je nego da završite fakultet, nađete posao i postignete nešto sa deset prstiju koje imate. A ako nije lakše, onda garantujem da je makar brže.

I don't know if the sleeping beauty attended the Met Gala, but Maleficent showed up for sure. Kris Jenner is my next target. If I hadn't read that this was a Balmain dress, I'd never guess it. Actually, maybe I would because the whole Kardashian/Jenner clan grabbed hold of it, pretending to be classy people who are rightfully there where they're standing. I loathe this woman for many, many, many reasons, and when I see what she's like I'm not so surprised her kids are the way they are. So, if you want to dress in Balmain and get prestigious invitations to exclusive events, the recipe is easy breezy - find a rich husband, give birth a couple of times, then find another rich and famous husband, give birth once or twice more, and when one of your kids ends up in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons, take advantage of it and put your entire family in a reality show. It's easier than graduating in college, getting a job and actually accomplishing something with the ten fingers you were born with. And if not easier, than I guarantee it's at least quicker.



 Ni Kendall Jenner mi nije jedna od omiljenih osoba na svetu, i sigurno je dobila posao modela zahvaljujući "dobrom porodičnom imenu", ali ona makar nešto radi, ima neku normalnu karijeru. S druge strane, poštujem je iz još jednog razloga - nije se utegla u Balmain, možete li da poverujete? Umesto toga je odabrala i više nego interesantnu, i sasvim lepu i prikladnu Versace haljinu čija me složenost zadivljuje. Za divno čudo, odgovorila je na temu bez metalika. Ovakav dizajn, rad i trud uložen u haljinu koju je odabrala je nešto u čemu vidim budućnost mode.

Kendall Jenner is not my favourite person in the world either, and I'm sure she got hired as a model thanks to the "good family name", but at least she does something for a living, she has a somewhat normal career. On the other hand, I respect her for one other reason - she didn't jump into Balmain, can you believe that? Instead she picked a beyond interesting, very beautiful and appropriate Versace gown which is so complex it fascinates me. Oddly enough, she nailed the theme without metallic. Such design, work and effort put into the dress she chose to wear is something I see the future of fashion in.



Ova devojka je, što se mene tiče, potpuno ukrala ceo događaj. Otkako je odrasla predstavlja modnu ikonu i moćnu mladu ženu koja zastupa stavove kojima bi savremeno društvo trebalo da teži. Ne sećam se jednog njenog modnog promašaja, ali ovo je jedno od njenih najneverovatnijih izdanja. Emma Watson je daleko od Hermione Granger od koje je počela, da znate, i sada je uspešna i otmena glumica koja je i više nego zasluženo pozvana na Met Gala. Calvin Klein me je zapanjio ovim ansamblom, savremena otmenost i elegancija prosto isijavaju iz ovog kroja, od nakita ništa ne nedostaje jer je minimalizam ovde i te kako dobrodošao, a frizura i šminka klasične i bezvremenske. Aplaudiram.

This girl, when it comes to me, completely stole the show. Ever since she grew up she represents a fashion icon and a powerful young woman who fights for things modern society should encourage and stand for. I can't remember one single time she had a red carpet failure, but this is one of her most incredible editions. Emma Watson is far from Hermione Granger she started with, you know, and now she's a successful and distinguished actress who deserved to be invited to the Met Gala and more. Calvin Klein wowed me with this ensemble, contemporary class and elegance simply radiate from this tailoring, no piece of jewellery is missing because minimalism is more than welcome here, and hair and make up are timeless classics. I applaude to this one.



Evo stiže moja mezimica! Nazovite me pristrasnom ako hoćete kada je ona u pitanju, ali Selena Gomez je izgledala divno. Graciozna i prelepa sa klasičnim konjskim repom i suptilnom šminkom od koje joj celo lice naprosto sija, lepo je iznela čak i ovu kreaciju koja mi se nije dopala na prvu loptu. Opet je u pitanju Louis Vuitton koji je zašao u nov domen estetike ove sezone - svečana haljina sa kožnim "brushalterom preko" i čizme koje joj daju opasan stav. Primetićete da je to fora koju je iznela i Alicia Vikander (prva pomenuta), ali ovo mi se sviđa neuporedivo više jer se ovde vidi neki sklad, svedenost koja se pokazala boljom od inovativnosti koja je otišla korak dalje. Jednostavno, ovde se vidi da je svaki detalj osmišljen da doprinese jednoj uspešnoj celini. Dižem palac, Kate Young.

Here comes my favourite! Call me fond if you want when it comes to her, but Selena Gomez looked lovely. Graceful and gorgeous with a classic ponytail and subtle make up that made her face glow, she nicely pulled off this creation that I didn't like at first. Again, it's Louis Vuitton that wandered into the new aesthetical domain this season - a formal dress with a leather "bra over" and boots that give it an edgy attitude. You'll notice it's the same pattern that Alicia Vikander (the first one mentioned) went for, but I like this so much more because you can see some harmony here, simplicity that proved to be better than innovation that went one step too far. It's simple, here you can see that every detail was created to contribute to a successful whole. Thumbs up, Kate Young.



A sada prelazim na njenu najbolju drugaricu - Taylor Swift! Ona je sama za sebe u šali rekla da izgleda kao neki futuristički gladijator, i nažalost, moram da se složim. Ne dopada mi se, uopšte. Što se kose i šminke tiče, taj grunge izgled je bio dobar kao ideja, ali njoj ne stoji naročito jer imam utisak kao da joj je izvuklo svu boju iz lica i sad izgleda previše bledo. Uzorak koji podseća na krokodilsku kožu na metalik podlozi daje zanimljiv efekat, ali pored svega toga mislim da ova Louis Vuitton haljina izgleda kao robot koji je pošao na časove flamenka. Sandale? Dobar pokušaj, ali nešto mi na njima smeta. Izgledaju kao nešto od čega će biti plava od kolena naniže jer će joj ti kaiševi debljine izolir trake zaustaviti dotok krvi u noge. Možda mi se ovo ne sviđa jer sam navikla da vidim Taylor u nekom više princeza izdanju, ali lično mislim da je na drugim događajima izgledala mnogo bolje.

And now on to her bestie - Taylor Swift! She herself said in a joke that she looks like a futuristic gladiator, and sadly, I have to agree. I don't like it, at all. When it comes to hair and make up, that grunge look was a good idea, but it doesn't look so well on her because I think that it drained all the color from her face and now she looks too pale. The pattern that looks a lot like crocodile skin on a metallic base gives an interesting effect, but aside from that I think that this Louis Vuitton dress looks like a robot that takes flamenco classes. Sandals? Nice try, but something about them bothers me. They look like something she'll be blue from her knees down from because those lace ups, thick like duct tape, will stop the blood flow to her legs. Maybe I don't like this because I'm more used to seeing Taylor in more of a princess edition, but I personally think that she looked much better on some other events.



Blake Lively, koja po drugi put očekuje dete (čestitam!), naprosto blista kao prolećna vila u ovoj predivnoj Burberry haljini. Iako ovo nema nikakve veze sa temom događaja, Blake jednostavno ne može da izgleda loše kad se negde pojavi, ni na ulici, ni na crvenom tepihu. Otmeno, bajkovito, veličanstveno.

Blake Lively, who's expecting her second child (congrats!), is simply radiant like a spring fairy in this beautiful Burberry dress. Although this has nothing to do with the event theme, Blake simply can't look bad, whether she's out and about or on the red carpet. Distinguished, fairy tale looking, magnificent.



Uvek me je kopkalo kako je ova žena stekla status modne ikone kada uvek izgleda kao ludilo koje hoda. Prošle godine je bila Disney zlikovac Jafar, a kada je shvatila da ne može da postane sultan umesto sultana, postala je Ben Franklin, George Washington, Ludwig van Beethoven, imena se nižu jedno za drugim. Sarah Jessica Parker ni kao Carrie Bradshaw, ni kao ona sama, ne ume da se obuče, i tačka. Monse odelo samo po sebi možda i ne bi bilo tako loše da nije ovih užasnih rukava. Ovo je omašena tema čak i sa satelitskog snimka, jer imam osećaj da bi ovo dobro prošlo samo na nekom sajmu sa tematikom američkog građanskog rata. Kada joj pogledam kosu samo pomislim da je mogla makar da se očešlja.

I was always puzzled by how this woman earned the status of a fashion icon since she always looks like walking madness. Last year she was Disney's villain Jafar, and when she realized that she couldn't be the sultan instead of the existing sultan, she became Ben Franklin, George Washington, Ludwig van Beethoven, names just keep piling up. Sahar Jessica Parker can't dress herself, not like Carrie Bradshaw, not like herself, period. The Monse suit maybe wouldn't look so bad if it weren't for those hideous sleeves. This is the total misinterpretation of the theme even from the satelite view, because I think this could only look good on a civil war themed fair. When I look at her hair, I only think that she could have at least brushed it.



Već čitavu sezonu Vampirskih Dnevnika gledam bez Nine Dobrev, ali kako da zaboravim ovakvu lepoticu? To je prosto nemoguće! Iako i ovde imamo jednu promašenu temu, prosto ne mogu da kažem ništa loše kada izgleda kao prava princeza iz bajke. Zlatna Marchesa haljina sa prolećnim reljefnim dezenom je naprosto divna i sjajno joj pristaje, a frizura i šminka je savršeno nadopunjuju. Slaba sam na ovakva izdanja za crveni tepih i jednostavno ne mogu da kritikujem. Predivno.

I've been watching an entire season of The Vampire Diaries without Nina Dobrev, but how could I forget this beauty? It's simply impossible! Although we have another look that doesn't match the gala theme, I just can't say anything bad since she looked like a princess straight out of a fairy tale. The golden Marchesa gown with spring inspired features is simply wonderful and fits her perfectly, and both hair and make up complement it better than anything else. I'm a sucker for such red carpet editions and I just can't give a single critique. Beautiful.



Mala digresija sa kongresa Disney princeza i povratak na scenu intergalaktičkih ratova! Zayn Malik i Gigi Hadid prvi put kao par na crvenom tepihu (znači da je najzad zvanično), i izgleda da je Zayn baš odlučio da se prilagodi temi, bukvalno. Ne, gospodine, nisu mislili na to da se pretvoriš u Optimus Primea. Versace odelo je klasika, i nema šanse da muškarac izgleda loše u odelu, ali nemam pojma šta da mislim o escajgu pretopljenom u navlake za ruke. Moja imenjakinja (da, tako je, pravo ime joj je Jelena), odnosno Gigi, nosi Tommy Hilfiger i iznenađena sam ovakvom estetikom od tog brenda jer je to poslednje s čim sam poistovećivala tu modnu kuću. Makar su se uskladili kao da idu na maturu, ako ništa drugo.

A small digression from the Disney princess congress and let's go back to the intergalactic battlefield! Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid are making their debut on the red carpet as a couple (which means it's finally official), and it looks like Zayn really decided to fit the theme, literally. No, sir, they did not mean that you should go as Optimus Prime. The Versace suit is a classic, and there is no way for a man to look bad in a suit, but I have no idea what to think of this pile of utensils molten to turn into those weird armor pieces. The girl who shares her name with me (yes, that's right, her real name is Jelena), or Gigi, is wearing Tommy Hilfiger and I'm surprised by such aesthetics of this brand because it was the last thing I associated them with. At least they match like a prom couple, if nothing else.



Kao što sam rekla, ne znam da li je bilo jedne uspavane lepotice, ali Pepeljugu smo imali. Claire Danes je u Zac Posen haljini zaista podsećala na dotičnu princezu, čak je i nijansu haljine ubola! Međutim, ta haljina nudi mnogo više kad se svetla ugase. Samo skrenite pogled malo udesno i videćete na šta mislim. Mislićete da ću ovo proglasiti promašenom temom zbog princeza tematike, ali ne. Mislim da ću se češati po glavi do sledeće Met Gale pitajući se kako su ovo uradili sa haljinom. Moje viđenje tehnologije i mode koje idu zajedno, kao i budućnosti ove industrije, leži upravo ovde. Pružiti nešto sasvim novo i neočekivano i naterati ljude da se pitaju kako vam je pošlo za rukom. Fenomenalno.

As I said, I don't know if there was a single sleeping beauty, but we surely had Cinderella. Claire Danes really reminded of that very princess in her Zac Posen gown, she even nailed the shade! However, that dress had so much more to offer when the lights went out. Just look a little more to the right and you'll see what I mean. You'll think that I'll pronounce this a misinterpretation of the theme because of the princess look, but no. I think I'll be scratching my head wondering how they made this happen. My interpretation of technology and fashion going together, and the future of this industry, lies right here. Offering something new and unexpected, and making people wonder how you pulled it off. Phenomenal.
