Valentine’s Day gets a bad rap, however it’s not the worst excuse to wear pink and red. But who says you can only wear V-Day’s palette and prints once a year? Burberry Prorsum’s Fall ’13 collection proved heart motifs have real staying power, especially when shown on a luxe camel trench or oxblood sweater. Paired with a patent leather pencil skirt, the result is far from cutesy—in fact, it’s even a little sexy. Of course, throwing in a candy-shaped clutch or glittery heels never hurt anyone—we’re all for having a little sartorial fun.

It was a year full of milestones for Malaika Firth, who launched her modeling career with Prada’s Fall ’13 campaign; broke through on the Spring runways; and scored spots in the latest ads for Prada, Burberry, and Valentino. She even walked her first Victoria’s Secret show. All that glamorous work deserves a vacation, and Firth—who currently lives in London—spent her holiday break in Mombasa, Kenya, where she was born and raised before moving to the U.K. at the age of 7. “I hadn’t been back to Kenya in almost three years, so I was super-excited to see how much my hometown had changed for the better, and my beautiful family, of course,” she told Style.com. Below, Firth shared some highlights from her trip.
“I helped my grandma with her restaurant, Porini, and spent time in the kitchen learning a few of her delicious ‘secret’ recipes. Here we are waiting for our food to come!”
“Me with Boko Boko, the restaurant’s resident Seychelles giant tortoise, who is over 200 years old!”
“A quick selfie with my adorable cousins.” Continue Reading “Malaika Firth Heads Home to Kenya” »
After watching the Golden Globes last weekend, the Oscar nominee list feels a bit like déjà vu. American Hustle, 12 Years a Slave, Blue Jasmine, and Her, all of which won big at the Globes, might be adding a few more golden statues to their collection. Christian Bale and Amy Adams are both up for Best Actor and Actress for American Hustle, while Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence are nominated for Best Supporting Actor and Actress. 12 Years a Slave, which won the Best Motion Picture, Drama, at the Globes, will be stiff competition for its fellow nominees that also include Gravity, Captain Phillips, Nebraska, Philomena, Dallas Buyers Club, and The Wolf of Wall Street.
Of course, we’re even more anxious to see who wins on the red carpet. After an exciting Golden Globes turnout, we’re hopeful that the Oscars will inspire some similar sartorial risk-taking. Emma Watson and Jennifer Lawrence both looked stunning in Dior—Watson in a backless dress over cigarette pants, Lawrence in an ethereal white strapless gown—and Amy Adams stole the show in a plunging crimson Valentino. (She said she was inspired by her American Hustle character’s wardrobe.) Rising star Lupita Nyong’o made several Best Dressed lists in her bright red caped gown by Ralph Lauren (red was a big color at the event), and Cate Blanchett, who won Best Actress, Drama for Blue Jasmine, wore a divine black lace Armani Privé number. The stars looked forward-thinking and modern—there wasn’t a mermaid silhouette or overembellished prom dress in sight. Can they keep it up on Oscar night?
See below for a list of the most competitive categories’ nominees, and tune in to ABC on March 2 to watch the ceremony.
