Looking for the dream wedding look? Look no further. Here are the cutting edge looks for 2013, off the runways.Elie Saab designed a confectionery collection of regal lacy dresses that would suit a princess in Spain. There were also pastels that could deck out Mia Farrow circa 1968. Frankly, it was ephemeral and beautiful. They weren't hippie though. The dresses were well bred and grown up. You won't have to worry about looking immature at your own bash. The gowns glowed with his virtuoso design and fitted the models perfectly. Christopher Josse went the restricted route, with somewhat controlled sleeveless gowns that need only a simple headband to decorate with. George Chakra sent a model down the runway with a veil covered in frothy white lace pieces. Jennifer Lawrence recently shocked in her short Dior veil and hat, similar to the looks he sent down the runway at his bold wedding collection.
Last night marked the 39th anniversary of the People's Choice Awards. While you, the fans, voted for all of your favorite performances in Hollywood, we at Joonbug waited for our favorite fashionistas to work the red carpet in dashing ensembles. The great thing about this year's red carpet trends was that...there were no trends! Last night's fashion free-for-all revealed a mix of styles including long white gowns, black cocktail dresses, neon minis, pale hues, metallics, florals, shimmer, and everything in between! We chose a few chic looks to don ourselves from some of our favorite winners. Luckily, designer Vera Wang, who made her luxurious brand accessible to all women by collaborating with Kohl's, has created great options to capture these red carpet looks for less than $100!
Winter is coming, which means it's all about Spring 2013 fashion collections! Vera Wang's Simply Vera collection, sold exclusively at Kohl's, and newly launched Princess Vera Wang junior's collection, recently debuted their Spring 2013 collection to select individuals (Joonbug included!). Princess Vera Wang is the designer's first collection for juniors and ranges from preppy to boho chic. The designer drew inspiration for the collection from her two daughters. Simply Vera launched in 2007 at Kohl's and has been going strong ever since. The Spring 2013 collection for both lines is fraught with peaches, greens, pinks, and oranges, along with more year-round grays and blacks, with splashes of neon thrown in (the only outfits with neon I've ever liked). The collection embodies the transition from winter to spring with pieces that can be easily be layered. Crop top sweaters play a dominant role, along with bright, flow-y dresses. The jewelry veers toward bold and chunky and properly paired, can make a real statement. The handbags are some of my favorite pieces and can really make an outfit. Unfortunately, the collections are under tight wraps until February, so you'll just have to wait and see what you think for youselves. But we can sure tell you that we are digging what we've seen!

While ready-to-wear often steals the spotlight, we’d be making a big mistake not to give some special attention to the fresh beauty trends that graced the runway last week. With as much presence as the covetable clothing, New York Fashion Week’s Fall 2012 season brought us an assortment of hair and makeup looks that inspire our beauty routines as much as the collections inspired our wardrobes. From voluminous, airy updos to nail art we’ll be taking to the salon, here are the best and brightest beauty highlights from backstage to the catwalk. (Hint: keep those tweezers at bay—bushy eyebrows aren’t going anywhere!)
As winter finally begins to thaw, usher in the arrival of Spring with style and generosity by checking out some of the many exciting charitable galas and parties of the season! This list highlights some of the most promising celebrations of the season, hosted by some of the world’s greatest charities, so be sure to find yourself partying for a cause this spring!
Say it ain't so! Not that we thought Kim Kardashian's marriage would actually last forever ,but we didn't expect it to be only 72 days! Amidst the media storm is word that Vera Wang will be making copies of the Kim K dresses for David's Bridal! According to reports it's actually true, but the real question is, will Vera go through with her plans? It seems like it would be a massive fail (and probably bridal bad luck!). Will people actually purchase these dresses? Or will they symbolize an unhealthy short marriage? Will Kim Kardashian Kris Jenner try to sue? Or the question everyone's been asking, will the media ever leave the Kardashians alone? Or rather will the Kardashian's leave the media alone? We say, don't do it Vera! Abort mission!
