Luisa Moraes’ Postcard from the World Cup Bash at Casa Fat Radish

-------

The World Cup may be over, but we still have our memories, right? Last Friday, after the final match in Rio, Brazilian actress Luisa Moraes hosted an all-out bash at The Fat Radish’s World Cup pop-up. Have a look at the festivities through her eyes, below.

Luisa introLast Friday night in Rio de Janeiro, Absolut Elyx and I hosted an evening of delicious food and cocktails at Casa Fat Radish. Over the past month, the team from The Fat Radish in New York and Absolut Elyx had hosted dinners, parties, and screenings of the World Cup matches at the pop-up members-only clubhouse, which was set in a private 19th-century villa. Anyone who was lucky enough to enjoy the pool and view the matches from the screening room knows just how special this place is. Fifty friends (including Gerard Butler, Michael Ballack, Esteban Walther, Vania Catani, and Daniela Tolstoï) who happened to be in town for the last weekend of the World Cup showed up to celebrate. While we dined on a five-course tasting menu created from local ingredients by Casa Fat Radish chefs, Brazilian musicians, The Jesse Monroe Band, played a wonderful acoustic set. After dinner, hundreds of people started showing up for what turned into a dance party beneath Friday night’s full moon.

Style Cycle: Fashion’s Finest Moments on Two Wheels

bike-sizedAll eyes have been on the World Cup the past few weeks. In case you missed it (or were too busy watching the Couture shows in Paris), another of the world’s greatest sporting events, Le Tour de France, has just gotten under way. But bicycles aren’t just for guys in jerseys—fashion has adopted the bike as one of its favorite accessories. (The art set is also having a bike moment—just check out the current Joyride exhibition at the Marlborough Gallery on Broome Street, featuring cycle-inspired pieces by Ai Weiwei, KAWS, Tom Sachs, Richard Prince, Dan Colen, and more.) In honor of the historic, cross-country cycling race, which ends July 27, we put together a few of our favorite fashionable biking moments from the streets. We dare you to try biking in heels.

Editor Obsessions: Nike 2014 FFF Match Soccer Jersey

-------

fffblog1Every day, Style.com’s editors reveal their current obsessions—and where to buy them. Check out today’s pick, below.

I find no better way to represent my love and support for the U.S. team in the World Cup than to…wear a French National Team jersey? Yes, because, like a true patriot, my feelings for American dominance in the competition are in my heart, not on my sleeve—and the FFF’s match kit is just so much cooler than the U.S. kit. So remember: Root for the team you love, but wear whatever you want because when you’re on the sidelines, looking good > winning and there’s no such thing as team loyalty in fashion.

Charlotte Olympia

In case you weren’t already aware, Charlotte Olympia is our go-to brand for playful, whimsical, festive accessories. Do we really need those heart-appliquéd pumps for next Valentine’s Day? Absolutely. And for our upcoming summer barbecues, the new peach minaudière will do quite nicely. For those of us who still need a reason to watch the World Cup, designer Charlotte Dellal’s new capsule collection is a total game-changer. Launching on July 4, the special-edition Hat Trick Pandora clutches consist of classic Lucite boxes and satin inserts printed with team flags. Whether you’re rooting for the USA, Argentina, or Brazil, these bags are a luxe alternative to fan-girl jerseys and face paint. “I am half-Brazilian and have three small boys, so I wanted to create this fun and feminine collection to celebrate Brazil hosting the World Cup,” Dellal said of the range, which debuts exclusively here. Even the trademark spider closure is hand-painted to look like a soccer ball. Priced at $1,195, the Hat Trick Pandora clutches will be available at Charlotte Olympia stores in New York, London, Beverly Hills, and Miami.

062214_Look_Of_The_Day_Roundup-blog[5][1]Style.com editors were dreaming of color this week, and it showed in our Look of the Day polls.

A close second was Zero + Maria Cornejo’s cobalt, citron, and green color-blocked ensemble, which was inspired by the Brazilian flag. On Thursday, we explored graphic Resort stripes.
