Style Icon: Villanelle (Killing Eve!)

Tereza Šťastná

Summer holiday is over and the time has come, to pull out our transitional clothing. 

As you might know, I like to turn to TV for fashion inspiration. And today is no different. I have a tip for an amazing show, that will help you to get over those rainy days and give you some serious fashion cravings. 

Let me introduce you to Killing Eve.

Killing Eve! is a British Spy thriller TV show about detective Eve (played by Sandra Oh) and gorgeous assassin Villanelle (portrayed by Jodie Comer). It’s a typical cat and mouse sort of story and it will not let you watch only one episode. 

But I am not here to review the show, I want to talk fashion! There is simply no other villain that is as Trés Chic as Villanelle. I guess, being an assassin, you don’t need to save your big bucks for building a house so you can make it rain in high-class boutiques. Let’s talk outfits! 

The most noticeable outfit of the whole show. It’s a statement and very well planned provocation. The fluffy pink Molly Goddard dress is paired with black bra and Balenciaga boots for the same reason we dress up for exams, doctor visits or job interviews. To show that we have our own shit together at the given moment.

This preppy look Villanelle wears in Oxford is so much fun. The hypnotic tie and baggy pants are mocking the typical schoolboy look which is a great example of expressing yourself. So yes, I love that this shows you can look appropriate but still give your middle finger to the world. Something like The Queen and her brooches.

The Alexander McQueen gown is one of my favorites and rightfully it’s one of the outfits with the longest time on screen. I especially love it in combination with the polka dot fascinator. Villanelle and tulle is simply like a match made in the crime drama heaven.

The Amsterdam pink blouse is an oversized silk shirt blouse by Rosie Assoulin. Honestly, that’s a designer I’ve never heard of before, but I fell in love with immediately, while researching for this article. Check out the interview Leandra Medine Cohen did with the designer.

Btw this is one of my favorite scenes of the whole show. And if you’re wondering about the earrings, it’s vintage Christian Lacroix.

If you were to steal someone’s look, this Burberry dress would be the perfect one to take. A, I am very big fan of light blue dresses as you might have noticed, B, I think that this style is very flattering and feminine.

Oscar's Selection

Tereza Šťastná

I had my wisdom tooth pulled out last Thursday and today it's a sixth day laying down with swollen cheek, absolute procrastination over shooting and filming and I am not in the mood to be present online. Ve čtvrtek mi vytrhli osmičku a tak už 5. den ležím s oteklou čelistí a naprostou nechutí k focení, natáčení a rozhodně nemám chuť se někde ukazovat. 

Meanwhile I am M.I.A. on social media, I work, create, think and search for an inspiration. Especially now, with one of the main cultural events of the year, Film Academy Awards a.k.a. parade of gorgeous dresses on even more gorgeous personas.

This year, I was little bit suprise that dominant colours were in natural hues from white to black with the exception of another favorite, red. Have you noticed? 

 

 

 

The first one to mention is for sure Kirsten Dunst and her tiny waist in Dior Haute Couture, because she was the fisrt actress to get my attention. Kirsten has absolutely gorgeous silhuette, do you think it's because of corset? I would say yes, because her waist was a definition of a wasp waist. Plus, I really love this clean, classic and timeless style, especially at occasions like the Oscars. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another absolutely stunning outfit could be seen on Felicity Jones. I adore the length that makes her look like a ballerina and showing off her ankles seems so refreshing to see on the red carpet. And did you see the shoulder straps made out of the twisted tulle that is covering the bodice?  I also love the color, even it makes Felicity look even more pale. I guess it is not surprising that it is Dior Haute Couture. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The absolute winner of the night was for me Taraji P. Henson in that midnight blue robe by Alberta Ferretti. She was stunning from her hair, jewelry to her power pose. It is the red carpet gesamkumstwerk. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

French actress Isabelle Hupert was another one, who looked stunning in her long sleeve robe and boat neckline. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I like Emma Stone not only because of La La Land, but mainly her character.

I cannot decide whether I like her dress or not. On one hand, they look amazing with the delicate beading, low waist and the wa-wa-woom neckline. On the other hand they remind me little bit of Art Nouveau table lamp that we can see here in Prague's cafes. Emma's look was polished with amazing hair and great make-up - the great lipstick was NARS, glamorous hair with loose waves and simply accesorized. 

 

 

Let me know in the comments section, what do you think of this year's ceremony and who do you think dressed up the best?

Korean Is The New Parisian...

Tereza Šťastná

I have an announcement to make: I fell in love with Korean TV dramas. I just saw one that's called "My True Love" or alternative names "My Love Eun Dong" or "My Beloved Eun Dong" and I have to say it was the most romantic story I have ever read/watched/heard. All the story was focusing on the inner thoughts of the characters so it wasn't so opulent as American TV is, which felt very refreshing. 

 Not only that the women were all gorgeous, the fashion was amazing! I know whole beauty world is loosing its mind about Korean cosmetic products and others for K-POP (I went through a period when I thought I will marry PSY) but I discovered whole new world: Korean Style. 

Forget dressing up like a Parisian if you are chubby like me. Skinny jeans, stripped t-shirt and flats don't work for us as much as for you, tiny ladies. But Korean fashion is full of beautifully looking natural materials, pastel colors, simple cuts and very minimalistic style. 

I got definitely inspired for my spring/summer wardrobe. This is exactly the style I am falling for.

Late Summer Outfits For Attending Big Events

Tereza Šťastná

 Usually this time of year is full of events for me. Either there are weddings going on, work related parties or just simply because the culture scene is starting to wake up after summer festival rage. 

 When it comes to styling for these events, I am little bit lost recently and go with either black or light blue dress so I gave myself a challenge and put together three outfit ideas that are full of colors but yet on trend. 

I am definitely adding these into my fall wardrobe. And yes, I am obsessed with Stuart Weitzman shoes. 

Guys, don't forget to check out my Polyvore account for more details on my selection and let me know in the comments section what do you think. Kiss.
