Camo trending

 This is me, telling the world I told you so. Because I cannot help but gloat, just a wee bit, to see this yesterday in my email.

I really love it when I ride the trend, just BEFORE it becomes a trend.

Camo is officially “in.”

You heard it here first!

Although the red & blue camo stuff Victoria’s Secret came up with isn’t rocking my boat. I prefer a washed out, authentic looking cami in traditional jungle, or even a desert, color palette.

Baby bump as Fall fashion?

 Gisele Bundchen’s latest look is one which seems to be quite on-trend with models these days… she’s preggers! Sure, you can’t tell from this picture here, but she isn’t expecting to deliver until December or early January, so first trimester bumps are pretty easy to hide in an empire waisted sundress.

Perhaps the baby bump is the latest trend for models-off-duty. Check out these other stylin’ Mommies-to-be.

 Style icon Nicole Richie has made pregnancy look great for the past few years while carrying her firstborn, Harlow, as well as her current pregnancy — I’ve heard rumors of twins, but the world will know for sure sometimes soon, she’s due late summer/early fall.

 And then there’s Heidi Klum, who’s carrying her fourth child (a girl!) and due in October. Am I the only one who finds it amazing that she can still pull off  “short, shiny and tiny” as she enters her third trimester?

  One of the highest-paid models in the world, Victoria’s Secret model Karolina Kurkova’s sporting her very first baby bump, and it’s a boy.

 Adriana Lima, another one of the Victoria’s Secret models, will be waiting until December to greet her first child as well.

 Brit model Jourdan Dunn is the youngest on this list to confirm she’s also got a brand new baby bump to wear for Fall, a boy who is also due in December. At just 19 years old, I admire her willingness to make a modelling career for herself while juggling the demands of having a family.

Christian Siriano’s working it

Who’s the fiercest of them all?

Christian Siriano is taking advantage of the momentum after his win as 2008 Season 4 Project Runway’s top designer, landing endorsements and signing joint ventures while his ticket is hot. You gotta give it up to PR’s Golden Child, he is working his fingers to the bone to remain in the public eye. I will say this… his product lines are meant for the average person’s income, a fact I greatly appreciate.

 First, there’s his makeup line, “Christian Siriano for Victoria’s Secret.” Yup, makeup. But makeup walks the runway, so high five on getting Heidi Klum to put in a good word. It’s all about who you know, right? Due out in August, the line will feature five shades of eye shadow ($14 each); three lip gloss shades ($14 each); black eyeliner ($12); a bronzer-highlighter trio ($24); a face brush ($32); and a ruffled cosmetics bag ($16).

  And then there’s that Tori Spelling thing… watchers of Tori & Dean’s reality TV show recently saw Tori and Christian gushing over their love for each other while working the red carpet. Christian said he wants to use Tori’s HSN jewelry for his runway show (or is it “shows,” as in plural?)  I say they’re made for each other, it takes a media hound to know a media hound. Grab that celebrity train! No official word yet on when these two might complete their fashion hookup.

 Siriano’s year began with a scrumptious deal with Payless Shoes, inked in December ’08 and hitting stores in August ’09. Siriano said his love of Egyptology inspired him while designing the line, which has a recession-friendly price point of $25-$45. As of today, there’s no match for “Siriano” on Payless’ website, but check back often. It can be hard to find designers’ lines at Payless’ retail locations, so online shopping may be the ticket (I know, you can’t try them on first… suck it up, darlings.)
