Let Me Explain the Kim Kardashian Vogue Cover Controversy

Why do people care that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West was on the cover of Vogue?

The internet exploded after they were both featured on the April issue of US Vogue, with expressions of disappointment, anger and just an overall sense of ‘Why?’ Have a look below, and you’ll see that thousands of people want to cancel their Vogue subscription because to them, a ‘sacred’ place has been desecrated.

Outfit of the Day: Jumpsuit for Joy

 

20140306_135555

Hi everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by! Given that I’ve done a whole series on jumpsuits, I thought I would show you how I styled mine. I’m rather short, so trust me when I say that I have to be careful!

Style Note: My jumpsuit is by a French designer called René Derhy. I went for black and white to keep things classic, but infused playfulness with the print. René has been around since the 70s – so there is a carefree, bohemian but undeniably European spirit in her clothes. The pinstripes draw the eye up and down, creating the illusion of height! The fitted top keeps things feminine, while the palazzo pants hide problem areas 😉

Accessories: I honoured the French theme with faux pearl necklace (Lovisa, on sale for $5; similar here) and a cocktail ring (vintage – see below). I wore red flats for an effortless look, but I equally recommend red heels 😉

Hi everyone – thanks so much for stopping by! This is a follow up post from my jumpsuit series. It can be tricky to wear prints because they can easily look overwhelming. This post addresses which prints you can you choose, and what you should look out for. I’ve broken it down into price points again, to cover a wide range of prints. I hope you enjoy it! Please let me know your thoughts in the comments 😉

Under $50:

1. If you’re new to printed jumpsuits, start with a muted neutral like navy. Pair with your favourite gold or silver accessories. See more at NewLook ($42).

2. Add in a dash of colour to a neutral base for striking effects! (Akira jumpsuit, $35.90).

3. Pair bright prints with a structured silhouette. Accessorise with neutrals such as black or gunmetal to balance the print and create a polished look: Desire Clothing ($45.78).

4. Go for abstract paisley to freshen up an old classic: Charlotte Russe ($28.99). This would look great with red accessories.

5. Break up prints with block colours! Even a black panel adds interest to a neutral piece like this NewLook jumpsuit ($42). Follow the symmetry with a black belt, or do some colour blocking with bright accessories and makeup.
