A few days ago I found first shots of the Zara Spring 2009 Ad Campaign with Lara Stone and fell in love with it. Not only the campaign was great, but the clothes were stunning as well. There was clearly some heavy inspiration involved as a lot of the pieces were reminiscent of this year’s Spring 2009 collections (thanks to FC@Red Carpet Fashion Awards for pointing it out). Zara channelled this year’s fashion darlings like Balmain (the first 2 dresses), Alexander Wang (grey/white pants/top ensemble) and Stella McCartney (the nude oversized blazer as previously worn by Amber Valletta).
The shoes were Balmain-esque as well. Rumor says Zara had to remove all of the rhinestone studded sandals from the shelves because they were infringing on another fashion house’s copyright. The nude lace booties remind me of Ann Demeulemeester’s Spring 2009 lace up boots.
I can’t wait to hit my Zara store this week, I’m probably going to buy the whole store empty. My favorites are the lilac draped dress, the LBD and the oversized blazer combo. And the Ann Demeulemeester knockoffs of course! Too cute.

P.S.: I ♥ Lara Stone. She’s so damn gorgeous.
A few days ago we had the perfect LWD, now it’s time to present you the perfect LBD. Since Miuccia Prada revived it in her Prada Fall 2008 collection, lace is one of the biggest trends right now – on runways, red carpets or on the streets. Lace is basically everywhere and worn with everything.
Get your own piece of lace luxury by grabbing this stunning black sleeveless jersey dress with a lace yoke from Alice + Olivia. The cut is classy and subtle while the lace adds a touch of sexiness. So femme fatale, I love it! Plus, the dress is currently on sale for $308 (was $440)!

And may I say that I am equally in love with the shoes? So adorable, so sexy, sooo high. They are also available at shopbop: Berny Demore “Sabrina” Sandals ($226.50 down from $775, FINAL SALE).
Despite Carrie being a Manolo girl, the quirky Ms. Bradshaw happens to flaunt a noticeable obsession for a pair of hot gladiator heels by Dior in the Sex and the City movie. The style is called “Dior Extreme Cutout Sandal”, retails for mucho dinero ($780) and was pranced by Carrie at least 6x throughout the movie.
After doing some research, we have counted 4 different styles of the Dior heel on Carrie’s foot: a brown croc version (first and last picture), brown smooth leather (second and third pic), black leather (fourth picture) and a gold embellished version which Carrie wore underneath her stunning wedding dress (fifth pic).
I can totally feel why Sarah Jessica Parker is crazy about this shoe. It’s perfection. I remember falling in love with this shoe after seeing the first candids from the movie set last year. Unfortunately, my credit card (and common sense) won’t let me buy this sweet pair of shoes so soon.
