Major Boot Trends For Fall/Winter 2010

There's nothing more exciting this season than the latest trends in designer boots, which is why today's Fashion Fix Scoop will focus on all major styles of trending boots this season - while also pointing you in the right direction of great shopping deals and discounts!

Since we're currently in fall, it's obvious boots are a major trend this season - whether it's booties, ankle boots or knee-high boots. These categories are all trending right now and there's many options of styles to choose from:

Booties: They come in all types of styles and go with almost anything, making this type of boot the trendiest of them all for this season. Versatility is usually the better option for many women and it's not difficult to find a pair of booties you'll love, whether it's leather, suede, heeled, flat, or laced.

Ankle Boots: You can take the laced approach (which look great made in suede or leather) when it comes to ankle boots (which are major right now) or you can opt for the fold-down collar approach (which is always sexy with a pair of jeans or nice pencil skirt) - remember you can still go further in dept when choosing these styles, don't forget how sexy a laced peep toe ankle boot can be!

Knee High Boots: Faux-fur on knee high boots is real huge this season, you can rock this trend in either heels or choose to go flat as well - without killing any animals!

Have You Seen?
BCBGeneration have released a bunch of hot boots, available now at all retail locations and online as well - don't forget to sign up for their newsletters to get the scoop on all their sale events!

Is Mariel Haenn Hollywood's Trendsetter?

Many people are intrigued by celebrity wardrobes, the stylish outfits they wear, and many of which become a popular guide of fashionable trends for the general audience - which is why I want to focus today's Fashion Fix Scoop on celebrity fashion stylist, Mariel Haenn.

Mariel Haenn is one my favorite fashion stylists, she's worked with top notch A-list celebrities such as Jay-Z, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, Meagan Good and now she's making quite a name for herself as well - she's currently the image creator and mastermind behind Rihanna and Ciara's fashion.

Based on all the ad-campaigns she's been involved in (Cover Girl, Sean Jean, Pepsi and etc.), her superstar clientele, and all the styling for fashion editorial she's done, it seems Haenn is pretty much Hollywood's trendsetter - respectively.

Working with such public figures not only puts Haenn in a position where she's not just styling clients anymore, she's now reached a level where she's setting fashion trends all over the world.

The military look and leather gloves became a major trend last spring/summer season, right around the same time of Rihanna's music video, "Hard" debut (you can also see Ciara is also wearing leather gloves in her music video "Work" as well).

It would be great to see Mariel Haenn behind the scenes while working with her major clientele, something like her own reality TV show would really do me justice - well that's if she even has time for that.

Check out Mariel Haenn's portfolio and more of her work at her website here.

This Week In Fashion Headlines

There's been a lot going on this past week within the industry, many new projects have developed and designers have made headlines. Since it is Friday, today's Fashion Fix Scoop will cover all the buzz everyone wont stop talking about all week!

Did You Know?
So there was a recent article I read on about wannabe celebrity designer, JWOW (from Jersey Shore), regarding her sexy clothing line, "Filthy Couture", which she launched back in July. Well apparently, there was a huge rumor which originated from a post on, claiming that JWOW was forced to shut down after three months due to some type of trademark issue with another company who also had a similar name.

JWOW has recently confirmed via Twitter, that those rumors were false: 

"clear things up! I'm designing a new fall line but holding it off for something very exciting! + my management is getting my line in stores. Online sales have stopped for these 2 reasons. Lol these stories r hysterical." 

It seems everyone now days thinks they can just have a successful clothing line or write a NY Times Best Seller just because they've had a little bit of TV play - hey I guess if the shoe fits, maybe they should wear it, right?

Have You Seen?
The fashion industry just got a new power woman this week! That's right, has added Tory Burch to their "Power Women" online column as No. 88 out of their 100 Most Powerful Women list - by the end of 2010, Burch's company will have 39 new boutiques in 4 countries and distribution in 500 department stores worldwide.

The article goes deeper into the upbringing of Burch's successful career and also mentions when she won the CFDA Accessory Designer of the Year award back in 2008. This is great for Tory, I enjoy her work very much, her Spring/Summer 2011 shows during fashion week were so amazing!

Trend Alert:

Valisere has become one of the leading luxury lingerie companies in the industry, making it the most trendiest labels of lingerie this season.

When Kate Moss joined the 2010 Valisere campaign, it was a great step towards the right direction because they both compliment each other. Kate has never looked better in lingerie before, for all of the pictures of Kate's photo-shoot click here and take look.

Paris Fashion Week Reviews And Trends To Watch: Spring/Summer 2011

Paris Fashion Week is over and it's now time to review the best collections and to name the latest future trends to watch during spring/summer 2011. Take a look at the pieces I personally felt represented some of the best collections during fashion week:

John Galliano
Giambattista Valli
Many designers presented great collections during fashion week, but all the buzz seems to be about Alexander McQueen, Miu Miu, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Valentino, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Chloe, Giambattista Valli, Stella McCartney, John Galliano, Givenchy, Akris, Loewe, Jean Paul Gaultier, Lanvin, and Christian Dior.

One of my favorite moments was of course when Sarah Burton introduced her first collection since the death of Alexander McQueen. All of her pieces had his original traits as well as the same concepts of design - overall a great collection in her mentors name:
Alexander McQueen

Future spring/summer 2011 fashion trends you should really be aware of are dots and ruffles - this is going to be huge, dots and ruffles were incorporated in Valentino, Lanvin, and other collections as well. 

Designers like Mark Jacobs (who executed Louis Vuitton's collection) and Jean Paul Gaultier have chosen a rather interesting route, taking us back in time to the 70's and the 80's. Colorful prints were also in almost every collection during fashion week, take a look at these pieces from Loius Vuitton, Akris, and Stella McCartney - notice how detailed the prints of each piece are.

Louis Vuitton
Stella McCartney
Exciting Moments During Fashion Week: Jean Paul Gaultier took us back to the 80's, and also had the lovely Beth Ditto walk the runway as well. This collection really stood out, was fun and revealed creativity with diverse selections of textures within it's pieces.
