In an industry that thrives on the idea of perfection, Kareena Kapoor stands as a visual representation of the term. The woman of immense talent that Bebo is, she has blown us over with her acting prowess in the past, and now, it’s her stellar sense of style that is ruffling our hearts.

While it was already hard enough to get over her how glamorous she recently looked in a blingy, thigh-high slit gown, the actress has bestowed another look upon us.

Embodying elegance in a strapless, black gown, Bebo looked bewitching in the pictures posted by designer Rhea Kapoor, on her Instagram account.

The sweetheart-neckline, corset gown had all the elements needed for a sensual evening outfit, while also being high on class-quotient. The gown hugged Bebo’s goddess-like body at all the right places, and made her look smoulderin’ hot.

The sheer fabric across the length of the A-line gown looked really trendy, thanks to the lovely pintex element it boasted of. While the corset accentuated Bebo’s body really well, the actress flaunted her toned legs through the cleverly placed sheer fabric, and left us gasping for air.

Kareena accessorised this sexy ensemble with a few silver rings, and sported her iconic smoky-eyes and nude-lips look.

She wore her hair in a neat, low bun, and finished the look with utmost perfection.

Fashion Notes: In Paris, Melania Trump Is All Class in French Twist, Louboutins

First Lady Melania Trump was all class in Paris, France, on Saturday as she and President Donald Trump visited French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte Macron, to commemorate the ending of World War I.

Mrs. Trump arrived to meet Mrs. Macron in Paris wearing a sleek dark navy off-the-runway Bottega Veneta suit with black leather gloves, a French twist hairdo, and slick black snakeskin Christian Louboutin stilettos.

The Bottega Veneta dress is from the Italian luxury brand’s Fall 2017 runway collection while the Louboutin snakeskin pumps are a favorite from the First Lady’s wardrobe.

Mrs. Trump’s sleek look complimented Mrs. Macron’s famous baby doll style as she wore a navy top and skirt — likely by Louis Vuitton — with a pair of matching navy suede stilettos.

The Slovenian-born former model paid homage to Christian Dior last year when she visited Paris, France, also wearing a French twist.

When Mrs. Trump arrived in France on Friday evening, she stepped off Air Force One in a black Burberry coat, black stilettos, and a crocodile Hermès birkin bag — of which she has many — that retails for more than $20,000. The bag’s uber luxuriousness makes it merely unavailable for the average consumer.

While leaving the White House for Paris on Friday morning, Mrs. Trump continued her current fondness for plaid and flannel coats, rocking a black and white checkered Burberry coat. On Halloween, Mrs. Trump donned a yellow plaid coat by Bottega Veneta

Mrs. Trump paired the Burberry coat with Christian Louboutin black calf, knee-high leather boots. The boots, which feature a slightly pointed toe, retail for about $1,295.

David Beckham’s Fashion Label Collaborates With ‘Peaky Blinders’ On New Clothing Line – LADbible

The clothing brand co-owned by David Beckham has revealed its Peaky Blinders collaboration range.

Yes, Kent & Curwen has launched its latest collection, and it includes a heap of stuff inspired by the hit BBC show. As you’d expect, the new range features flat caps, sharp tailoring and frock coats.

The range is labelledThe Garrison Tailors’, a nod to the infamous Shelby family boozer from the show.

Speaking to the Guardian about the collaboration with the popular series, Becks said he was a ‘big fan of the show’, adding: “Our brand has always been about the look. It keeps that authenticity.”

David attended the launch at London Fashion Week with members of his family, including designer wife Victoria and son Brooklyn – both Golden Balls and the youngster wore flat caps, naturally.

Speaking about the choice of head gear, Becks added: “I got that from my grandad. I wore his from a very young age. Brooklyn has taken it on as well.”

And Becks is sure to be pleased with the new teaser trailer dropped by the BBC over the weekend, which gives a little first glimpse of the new season.

Fans – presumably including David – are all keen to catch up with Tommy Shelby and the rest after what seems like forever.

The fifth season began filming back in September and is tipped for a spring or summer 2019 release.

According to the season’s official synopsis: “Series five of Steven Knight’s crime family saga finds the world thrown into turmoil by the financial crash of 1929. Opportunity and misfortune are everywhere.

When Tommy Shelby MP (Cillian Murphy) is approached by a charismatic politician with a bold vision for Britain, he realises that his response will affect not just his family’s future but that of the entire nation.”

Show creator Knight told the Birmingham Mail last year: “We are going into the 30s now. There is so much stuff happening, so why not finish the job? The depression and the rise of fascism form part of the story-line.

“It is setting those things up. In the 30s across Europe and Britain there was the rise of fascism.”

Anyone else excited yet?

Wanda Ferragamo, Who Built Fashion Giant From Shoes, Dies at 96

Wanda Ferragamo, who turned her husband’s Italian shoe company into a luxury-goods empire and fulfilled his dream of dressing the customer from head to toe after taking over the business more than 50 years ago, has died. She was 96.

She died Friday, according to a person close to Salvatore Ferragamo SpA.

The widow of Salvatore Ferragamo, who produced custom-made shoes for actresses such as Audrey Hepburn, Greta Garbo and Marilyn Monroe, lacked any business experience when she took on the running of her husband’s company after he died in 1960.

Twenty-four years his junior, she expanded the Ferragamo brand into clothing, perfume, handbags, leather goods, watches and eyewear. Helped by her six children, who have led various divisions, Wanda Ferragamo was at the helm of the Florence-based company for five decades, longer than her husband was after founding it in 1927.

“I didn’t think about myself at all — whether I was capable or not,” she said, according to a 2007 interview in Time magazine. “I just went at it with such energy, such goodwill.”

Monroe’s Stilettos

The matriarch who headed one of Italy’s most successful family-run companies inherited a business that had about 350 patents and created 20,000 shoe designs, according to Vogue magazine. It pioneered the platform shoe, the steel-reinforced stilettos worn by Monroe in the “The Seven Year Itch” and the suede ballerina flat with ankle straps that Hepburn wore in “Sabrina,” movies released in the 1950s. Celebrities such as Madonna and Charlize Theron became clients under Wanda Ferragamo’s leadership.

From the 13th-century palace purchased by her husband as a company headquarters in 1938, she introduced handbags in 1965, menswear in the 1970s and eyewear in the 1990s, according to the company’s website. She also opened single-brand boutiques on New York’s Fifth Avenue and in other cities including Hong Kong, Shanghai, Seoul, Mexico City and Mumbai. A joint venture to sell perfume with Bulgari SpA, now part of Paris-based LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SE, began in 1997. For her contributions to the industry, Wanda Ferragamo received Italy’s highest honor, the Cavaliere di Gran Croce, in 2004.

At age 90, she continued to work at her office because “it’s the place where I feel closest to my late husband,” she said in a 2011 interview with Germany’s Die Zeit newspaper. In the same year, the company held an initial public offering, selling its shares on the Milan Stock Exchange.

The company had about 4,000 employees and revenue of 1.4 billion euros ($1.6 billion) in its last fiscal year.

Meeting Salvatore

Wanda Miletti was born Dec. 18, 1921, in Bonito, an Italian village about 129 kilometers (80 miles) east of Naples. Her father was a doctor and the town’s mayor. Her mother died when Wanda was 16.

In 1940, at age 18, she met Salvatore Ferragamo when he visited Bonito, his home village, after he had donated money for development projects there. After meeting Wanda, he said, “This girl is going to be my wife,” according to the interview in Die Zeit. They married five months later.

The Ferragamos raised their children — who now run the company — in “Il Palagio,” a 30-room villa in Fiesole, near Florence, according to a 1983 story in People magazine.

Fiamma Ferragamo, who died in 1998, created the Gancino metal clasp that became the design signature of the company. Ferruccio Ferragamo is chairman; Giovanna Ferragamo is vice chairman; Leonardo Ferragamo manages its investments; Massimo Ferragamo handles U.S. distribution; and Fulvia Ferragamo ran the silk-accessories division until her death in April 2018.

In 1995, Wanda Ferragamo opened a museum inside the company’s headquarters as a tribute to her husband. She wrote her autobiography, “Stepping Into the Dream” (2008), co-authored with Jay Mulvaney.

“Everything that we do here is always in reverence to him,” she said in the interview with Die Zeit, referring to her husband. “I learned a lot from Salvatore.”

Karl Lagerfeld, iconic Chanel fashion designer, dies – BBC News

Media playback is unsupported on your device

Iconic fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld has died in Paris following a short illness.

The German designer, who was the creative director for Chanel and Fendi, was one of the industry’s most prolific figures and worked up until his death.

His signature ponytail and dark glasses made him an instantly recognisable figure around the world.

Industry heavyweights, including Italian designer Donatella Versace, issued heartfelt tributes.

“Today the world lost a giant among men,” said the editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine, Anna Wintour.

Lagerfeld’s website says his year of birth was 1938 – though most placed his age at five years older.

Rumours of Lagerfeld’s ill health had swirled for several weeks after he missed a number of events – including Chanel’s spring/summer show last month.

He died on Tuesday morning after being admitted to hospital the night before, French media report.

As a designer he transformed the fortunes of Chanel, one of the leading names in high fashion, but his work also filtered down to the high street.

Away from his work, Lagerfeld made headlines for a range of provocative, and sometimes offensive, statements.

Who has paid tribute?

Members of the fashion industry have been lining up to praise Lagerfeld’s work.

Donatella Versace said his genius had “touched so many” and was a source of inspiration for her and her late brother.

Wintour described the designer’s “creative genius” as “breathtaking”.

“Karl was brilliant, he was wicked, he was funny, he was generous beyond measure, and he was deeply kind. I will miss him so very much,” her statement went on.

The model, Claudia Schiffer, said: “What Warhol was to art, he was to fashion; he is irreplaceable. He is the only person who could make black and white colourful.”

Chanel’s chief executive, Alain Wertheimer, credited Lagerfeld with transforming the brand after he joined in 1983.

“Thanks to his creative genius, generosity and exceptional intuition, Karl Lagerfeld was ahead of his time, which widely contributed to the House of Chanel’s success throughout the world,” he said in a statement.

It has been announced that Virginie Viard, his deputy at fashion house Chanel, will succeed him as creative chief.

Pier Paolo Righi, his own fashion brand’s CEO, described him as a “creative genius”.

“He leaves behind an extraordinary legacy as one of the greatest designers of our time,” a statement from the House of Karl Lagerfeld said.

Celebrities including Victoria Beckham, actress Diane Kruger and models Gigi and Bella Hadid have also paid tribute.

US First Lady Melania Trump shared images on Twitter of a design created by Lagerfeld for her first official White House appearance.

New life at Chanel

He was born Karl Otto Lagerfeldt in pre-war Germany in the 1930s.

Lagerfeld changed his original surname from Lagerfeldt, because he believed it sounded “more commercial”.

He emigrated to Paris as a young teenager, and became a design assistant for Pierre Balmain, before working at Fendi and Chloe in the 1960s.

But the designer was best known for his association with the French label Chanel.

He began his long career with the fashion house in 1983, a decade after Coco Chanel died.

Lagerfeld’s designs brought new life to the label, adding glitz to the prim tweed suits the couture house was known for.

The designer worked tirelessly, simultaneously churning out collections for LVMH’s Fendi and his own label, up until his death.

He also collaborated with high street brand H&M – before high-end collaborations became more common.

Lagerfeld was known to encourage new designers, like Victoria Beckham – who has praised him for his kindness.

Lagerfeld’s own look became famous in his later years – wearing dark suits and leather gloves with a signature white pony-tail and tinted sunglasses.

Lagerfeld said of his appearance: “I am like a caricature of myself, and I like that.”

Despite his age and decades within the industry, the designer remained prevalent within popular culture – appearing in 2015 as a character in Kim Kardashian’s Hollywood smart-phone game.

Lagerfeld’s beloved pet cat Choupette, whom he doted on, has a cult following of her own online.

Questions about her fate have become a talking point on Twitter following the news of the designer’s death.

Courting controversy

Lagerfeld became known for his scathing wit and provocative comments, famously describing sweatpants as a “sign of defeat”.

However, some of his remarks drew sharp criticism in recent years.

In particular, he sparked outrage when he attacked Germany’s open-door response to the migrant crisis, as reported by The Guardian, and for controversial remarks he made about the #MeToo movement, as reported by Papermag.
