There’s something lovely about the way Kate Middleton restyled her nude Roland Mouret gown that was simple but still fabulous. The new mom hit the red carpet for the Dec. 5th premiere of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom (may he rest in peace) rocking a stunning $35 statement necklace from Zara, showing it off even more so by wearing a glamorous ponytail. Hair envy, anyone?
The 31-year-old Duchess’ accessory is currently sold out but the retailer does offer two similar options – here and here - that would be the perfect addition to your holiday frock.

It’s an absolute thrill to see Marilyn Monroe as the new face of Chanel No. 5! The blonde bombshell was quoted years ago, saying that the fragrance was the only thing she wore to bed, and from that moment on, it was Chanel No. 5 and Marilyn forever. Fifty-one years later, the sex symbol has become the new face of the fragrance.
Marilyn Monroe: The New Face of Chanel No. 5
“You know, they ask me questions. Just an example: ‘What do you wear to bed? A pajama top? The bottoms of the pajamas? A nightgown?’ So I said, ‘Chanel No. 5,’ because it’s the truth… And yet, I don’t want to say ‘nude’. But it’s the truth!”
In a short commercial, Chanel has tied beautiful vintage footage with the sound of her voice, showing the LIFE photoshoot that made Chanel No. 5 as popular as it is today. Accessing lost audio footage, Marilyn’s interviews were the inspiration behind this lovely campaign.
What do you think of Marilyn Monroe as the face of this classic fragrance?

Shopping the end-of-year sales is one of my favorite pastimes and I always look forward to the one at my favorite online boutique net-a-porter, which offers up to 50% off dozens of luxurious pieces (such a steal if you’re looking to invest in designer items). Here are my six picks from the sale and of course let me know which deals are in your shopping cart! xo
