The Annual Met Gala Red Carpet Report

 

The annual star-studded Met Gala took place in New York City last night. From movie stars to models, everyone who was anyone seemed to make an appearance. With the theme of last night’s event being “Punk: Chaos to Couture”, we were sure to get an eyeful of some interesting ensembles. While some stars decided to tame down the “punk” theme, others went all out. Either way, we loved looking at some of the recurring trends from last night and thinking about how to carry those over to our designer swimwear.

 

 

One of our favorite looks of the night had to have been Miranda Kerr. While it’s true, Kerr looks amazing in just about anything she wears, she really pulled off her Michael Kors dress with ease and sophistication. The cutout trend seems to be huge for this current season. Whether you choose to rock that trend with a monokini like Love Bound or Drive Me Wild, you’ll be sure to nail it. Another trend Kerr is implying? The bandeau! Bandeau’s layered under cutout t-shirts or blouses are a great way to add some extra color or sparkle to your look. Fun bandeau‘s like Paradise and Heartless 2013 are great options to use when layering your look.

 

 

Another favorite of ours was Jessica Alba, who wore a gorgeous Tory Burch dress. The dress was leather and featured smaller, feminine cutouts as well as two larger, and more bold cutouts. We loved the overall effect of the pattern, similar to the Sipping Pretty bikini and monokini. Leather is also huge for this season, which is one of the many reasons we love the leather accents on luxury swimwear such as Drive Me Wild, Crazy For You, and Call On Me.

 

 

Being a punk theme, the color of choice seemed to be black (for obvious reasons). Black is a great, classic color. Jennifer Lawrence’s dress took classic to the next level. Her Christian Dior dress paid great homage to Old Hollywood starlets, while the color added to the “punk” feel. Black is always a great option, especially when it comes to your designer swimwear. Choices like Pretty Young Thing and Truly, Madly, Deeply are great staples to have in your wardrobe.

 

Who were some of your favorites from the Gala last night?

Taylor Swift Wow’s in Fresh Spring Colors

 

Now that it’s May, spring is officially in full bloom. From florals to pastels, there are so many great spring trends that are so youthful and fresh- it definitely puts you in the appropriate mood for the season. Taylor Swift is just one of the young starlets out there who seems to always look youthful and fresh- not just in her designer swimwear, but in her day-to-day routine. We love the colors that are trending for this season- lavender and coral. Not only has Taylor been seen wearing these shades numerous times, but we’ll show you how to get the look with Lady Lux Swimwear.

 

 

Lavender is just one of the many colors we’re obsessed with for spring. It’s a color that takes some confidence to wear and pull off. Taylor Swift has been seen in this youthful shade multiple times- at events as well as just strolling around. There are so many great options to pull off this color using your luxury swimwear. Our favorite is the Heaven Can’t Wait monokini- which is a flattering cut for just about anyone. There’s also the Heaven Can’t Wait bikini and the Heartless bandeau. All of which feature a fun snakeskin print on the lavender- adding just a bit of an edge to the swimwear.

 

 

Taylor is known for her old-Hollywood femininity. What’s more feminine than a girly shade of coral? Taylor seems to love all shades of coral. The brightest shades resemble the Pretty Young Thing bikini as well as the Lost In Love bikini while the softer shades resemble the Melt Away bikini. Either way, there isn’t a color more universally flattering than coral and, it too, is great for spring!

 

Whether you’re pulling off these colors in your day-to-day clothing or in your Lady Lux Swimwear, remember to fully accessorize from head to toe. That will complete your feminine look with these feminine colors!

Rihanna Rocks Spring’s Hottest Trends

Despite her notorious “bad girl” image, there’s no denying that Rihanna is a remarkably stunning girl. The Barbados beauty has skin that’s always glowing and a style that’s all her own. We love how often Rihanna is spotted at the beach or by the pool, always sporting the hottest trends in designer swimwear. With a body like hers- she always manages to look amazing whether she’s lounging poolside or hitting up the jet-skis off the coast of her home country. We pulled some of our favorite spring trends that the singer has been pictured in- and show you how to get the look using your Lady Lux swimwear.

 

 

Prints are huge for spring. Whether it’s stripes, polka dots, florals, or chevron- if you’re wearing a pattern, you’re most likely on trend for spring. Lady Lux especially loves florals for spring because it shows off the season’s best attribute- flowers! Rihanna was photographed wearing a multicolored floral bandeau very similar to the Lady Lux Floral Fantasy bandeau. If bandeau’s aren’t your thing- Lady Lux has so many other floral styles to offer such as Secret Escape, More Than A Feeling, and Bed Of Roses. Our favorite part about RiRi’s look? The trendy body chain she’s so often seen wearing while at the beach and/or pool.

 

 

Our next favorite trend is actually a color- turquoise. Turquoise is one of those rare shades that’s flattering on virtually any skin tone. Not only that, but if you aren’t lucky enough to make an impromptu trip to Barbados, the hue will leave you dreaming of tropical ocean waters. The Lady Lux Paradise bandeau is exactly that- paradise in a swimsuit (well, the color at least). The slight shimmer in the bandeau’s material adds to the glamorous feel to the suit.

 

 

Here at Lady Lux, we absolutely cannot get enough of chevron- one of spring’s hottest prints. The print is so easily transformed from boho, to super-chic, to everything in between. Rihanna was spotted wearing a multicolored orange chevron print on her luxury swimwear. Similar, Lady Lux‘s Call On Me has a fun, multicolored chevron print. For a more monochromatic look, check out the Crazy For You bikini- which features all shades of purple. Again, Rihanna is wearing her favorite body chain- which we absolutely adore.

 

So which trend is your favorite? Or will you be seen in all of them, like Rihanna? Just remember to pack your sunscreen and your body chain and you’ll be ready for the beaches of Barbados!

Steal Her Style with Lady Lux- Katy Perry

 

It’s hard to describe one person using the words sexy, confident, cute, and bubbly all in the same sentence. But Katy Perry is a pop icon who challenges that statement. Her look ranges from super sexy to classically feminine to charming and sweet. All of which- we can relate to here at Lady Lux. While some of her style choices may be a bit zany from time to time, she always manages to stay true to herself and what she likes, despite the criticism. It’s that self-confidence that we respect most, which is why that (combined with her unique style taste) are some reasons why we wanted to show you how to pull off the Katy Perry look using your luxury swimwear.

 

 

Her first look is a throwback from her debut CD- “One Of The Boys”. Here, she not only exudes sexiness, but stays classic and slightly “pin-up” with her look. Her pin-up style she so often is sporting is, again, one of the many reasons we love her. The nautical feel to this red dress is similar to both the Ready Or Naut bikini (above) and the Sea Dreamy bikini (below) by Lady Lux. The Ready Or Naut style has both the stripes and the bow detail at the bust line, which are similar to Katy’s dress, while the Sea Dreamy style has the red and white color palette as well as the same nautical, pin-up feel.

 

 

This selection is an example of how Katy Perry is so often seen in silhouettes and styles that are so classically feminine. The combination of light pink and black is classically girly color palette. Add in the floral lace detailing, and the look is sky-rocketed to the next level of feminine. Similar to Katy’s dress, the Bed of Roses bandeau has the same light pink/black color palette. The florals on the bandeau mimic the floral lace detailing on Katy’s dress. Not only that, but there’s also a small amount of lace trim at the seams on the swimsuit, adding to not only the femininity but also the sexiness.

 

 

Just in time for spring- we figured we would feature another fun floral of Katy’s. This gorgeous dress of hers features a multicolored floral similar to that of the Floral Fantasy bandeau. Our favorite detail? The neckline of Katy’s dress is similar to the cut of the bandeau. The wide-set straps open up your neckline, while the bandeau pushes up, creating a classically sexy look that is virtually universally flattering.

 

Now it’s your turn to take on Katy Perry’s fun-spirited, sexy style using your own designer swimwear. The most important lesson from Katy? There is nothing more flattering and sexy than confidence.

Get Jessica Alba’s Street-Chic Looks with Lady Lux

 

Jessica Alba is a style icon. Here at Lady Lux, we love everything about her- from her perfectly toned abs, to her cute bikinis (that she’s so often photographed in), to her style around town. We not only wanted to show you how to mimic her beach style, but more importantly- her everyday casual style. She nails trends so often, it’s easy to mimic those trends with your very own designer swimwear. There were so many looks to choose from, but we managed to narrow it down to only a few for you.

 

 

Our first look of Jessica’s highlights some of our favorite trends for spring- florals and bright colors. Her look is effortless and basic. The bright turquoise color of her shirt is so reminiscent of the Paradise bandeau from Lady Lux. When paired with some other bright accessories and (most importantly) a floral beach tote- you’ll be ready to hit the beach in style. Jessica’s Kate Spade bag is to die for, but there are many other similar options out there! Just remember to keep it casual- like Jessica!

 

 

Our second favorite look is definitely a more summery-style look, perfect for hitting the beach. Jessica nails the “beach boho” style with a purple/pink printed cover-up, a fringed bag, and a cool hat. The color palette is so similar to the Crazy For You bikini, which also has a fun boho print. A light tan leather beach tote would be great to complete your look- just make sure it has some fringe like Jessica’s! It will round out your beach boho style!

 

 

Our last look of Jessica’s is a bit more basic- with a neutral color palette (unlike the first two looks). The part of this look that stood out to us, however, was the pop of color she did with her bag. This style is so easy to carry over to your luxury swimwear. Using Lady Lux‘s Sipping Pretty bikini, you can easily throw a black cover-up over and add a fun, bright tote. We love the combination of neutrals with red, but any color can work. Sipping Pretty has a similar pattern to Jessica’s shirt too! Accessorize with some funky sunglasses like Jessica’s and you’ll be sure to stop traffic!
