Chanel Iman. Girl of the month.

Hey guys!

Hope you all had a lovely christmas, we certainly did! Anyhow, this will be our last post of 2011! Happy New years eve guys!
The Green Raybans has decided to introduce GOTM. ( Girl of the month), where we post  who we think is the most stylish girl of the month. We do love reading all your comments so do comment below and leave us a link to your website!

This month, we have decided to introduce Chanel Iman. Chanel Iman Robinson, commonly know as Chanel Iman, one of mine ( and Nicole's!) favourite models of ALL time. She is a Victoria Secrets Angel and has been on the cover of some of the biggest fashion magazines in the world! She is the youngest high fashion model of our time. Discovered by Ford Modelling Agency in January of 2004, this Victoria's Secret Angel has endless legs and a beautiful face. Not to mention a kick-ass style.

Chanel's Style Essentials:

1. A leather jacket
Chanel has been stopped numerous times wearing a leather jacket. It chic-ify's (is that even a word?) a plain outfit in 2 seconds! Throw on a plain white v-neck, skinnies and a pair of black heels and your good to go!

My pick: Topshop- Black Quillted Pu Faux Fur Collar Biker Jacket

2. Skinny Jeans
Skinny Jeans are not just a essential in Chanel's wardrobe, but a essential in everyones wardrobe. They really look good on Chanel though. Jeans enhance her long thin legs and make them look amazing. Not to mention, it makes everyone look so skinny!

My pick: Nasty Gal

3. Boots
Okay, okay. Boots may not be 'practical' for us who live in tropical-neverending-summer countries, but for those who live in countries with seasons, it is an essential item to your wadrobe and is great to use in winter. Not only are boots warm, they are also stylish. Chanel wears boots in a glorious amount of ways, she dresses them up and wears them casual, and tends to wear them with jeans.

Heres my pick for the daring:
Miss Selfridge: BOXER Over the Knee Wedge Boot

Combine those elements together and you can be as Chic as Chanel!

Happy new year guys! The next time we post, it will be 2012!

ohh makeup.

Hello everyone! I hope you are all great :) It seems like ages and ages and ages since I have touched the keyboard on my freezing cold macbook air. Ironically that isn't even the case right now, because I'm on my friend Nicole's laptop. And her laptop is freakishly warm. I was just browsing through weheartit.com (what else am I meant to do when it's the "winter" holidays here in less than sunny Singapore and I have no friends here, right?) Anyways me being the blissful loner I decided to do a post about makeup. Hope you guys like it!



//My aussie holiday through instagram.//

Hey guys!

Recently, I found this amazing photo editing app called instagram and I love it! The app is free and you can find it on the app store on any ipad/ipod/iphone! Anyhow, I decided to make a photo album of my holiday...

Where are you guys going for the holiday?



Street style.

Hey guys!

Here are some street photos that I adore...

What do you think about the street style?



Teen fashionista.

At just 14 years of age, Hailee Steinfield is one of the youngest and most well known teen actresses. Maybe because she was chosen as the new face for Miu Miu, or maybe because she is one  of the youngest people ever to have an Oscar nomination. Her career went from a upward streak ever since she starred in True Grit. She is in virtually every scene landed in the supporting actress category.

Hailee is also one of my style muses, i love how she can pull off anything she wears

Hailee Steinfeld in Moschino, Marchesa, Prada, and Alberta Ferretti.

The beauty of Saris

Recently, I have been really inspired by the beauty of indian saris. I love everything about them; the colour, the design,the fabric, the way it was put together...
Some of you probably don't even know what i am talking about..

An indian sari is a strip of unstitched cloth, worn by females, ranging from four to nine metres in length that is draped over the body in various styles. It is popular in IndiaBangladeshNepalSri LankaBhutanBurma, Singapore, and Malaysia. The most common style is for the sari to be wrapped around the waist, with one end then draped over the shoulder baring the midriff.

What do you guys think? Thanks so much for following!
Sorry for not posting recently, we've had so much homework!



Afternoon Tea in Style: Prêt-à-Portea

     The Berkeley hotel in London is known for its stylish and delicious teas- i recently went to this tearoom and fell in love with it. The afternoon teas are inspired by the latest fashion collections from the catwalk and the teas taste as amazing as they look :) 

Right now, the afternoon teas are based on the spring/summer 2011 collection including the Marc Jacobs jumpsuit topped with a raspberry cream fancy complete with bow belt. While a biscuit with pink icing pays tribute to the Tom ford pink chiffon dress.

Check out the video if you want to find out more about these delicious treats!

The Ultimate Guidebook into the Industry of Fashion:

The Teen Vogue Handbook, is probably one of the best fashion books i have ever read. Its one of the reasons i want to become a fashion designer when i am older.

Its such an inspiring book  and is a MUST READ for people who want to have a career in the fashion industry and it gives so many helpful and useful tips.
This book incudes interviews from aspiring designers, from Marc Jacobs to Karl Lagerfeld, editors, photographers, stylists, and Teen Vogues's own staff including Amy Astley and the famous Anna Wintour.

-A short video clip from the editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue, talking about the book.

Thanks again for following!



An Interview with Moments With Meera

A few weeks ago, I came across a blog called
Moments With Meera. Ever since then, I have been in love with her blog so we decided to set up an interview with her. 

1.Tell us a little bit about yourself..(what you do, your style, where you're from)
 My name is Meera, and for the past year, my life has been immersed in fashion, style, and momentswithmeera.blogspot.com. I am 14 years old, and besides fashion, I love reading, and writing. My style is ever-changing, but I love glamour and couture-I try to bring a high fashion look to my high street buys.

2.Favourite Shops?
I love shopping at Zara, Gap, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Promod, Pull and Bear, Juicy Couture, and Mango. My dream buys are from Alexander McQueen, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Lanvin.

3.What Inspires you?   
 I am inspired by all the fashion magazines I read-the editorials, the fashion index, the beauty buys, and the letter from the editor. Everything about a magazine speaks to me. I read Teen Vogue, Harper's Bazaar UK, Elle UK, Vogue India, Vogue USA, and Vogue UK. My biggest source of inspiration, though, is through the streets of the cities I love-the time I feel most alive is when I walk down the streets of New York, London, and Paris. 

4.In three words, describe your style.
My style is funky, elegant, and trendy. At times, I tend to move with trends, but I always manage to out my own spin on it-the trends become a part of my style. 

5.How did you find your style?
I never had to go searching for the kind of person I was in the fashion world. My style was always evident to me. I can't pinpoint what my style is like exactly, but its a part of me. Fashion is expression-so my style is me. 

6.What Motivates your blog?
My blog is motivated by inspiration. I am constantly inspired, and my blog is a creative outlet for the beauty I see, and want to share. My dreams also inspire me-my dream is to work in fashion, and my blog is a start for that. 

7.Why did you start your blog?
 I started my blog to gain knowledge about the fashion world, and to share my thoughts and ideas. I have always loved writing, and a blog is the perfect place to display that. 
Writing, combined with my love for fashion, makes a blog an ideal place to share, and learn.

8.Any fashion advice?
 My fashion advice is to explore-explore styles, brands, magazines, websites, blogs. If you love fashion, exploring through the fashion worlds can teach you so much. It makes up your style, and can teach you so much about style. 

9.What advice do you have for people just starting out a blog?
My advice to people who have just started a blog is to network. Go to blogs, leave comments, follow you favorite ones. Once you explore the Blogosphere, you meet more people, and start to cultivate readers and even friends. Networking starts the beginning of blogging. Also, always produce clear, beautiful images-write and show things you love and would love to read about. 

You can check out Meera's blog here. Check it out! Its a really great blog.

September: The fashion month.

I have many different  reasons to back up to prove that september is one of the most important months for fashion. Its the month where Vogue makes their magazines as thick as a telephone book. Its the month where all the designers look books are coming out for the fall. Its the month of New York Fashion week.

-Kate Moss on the cover of US Vogue this month wearing a beautiful purple Alexander McQueen dress from his Fall/Winter 2011 collection and she is photographed by Mario Testino.

This year, Vogue's September issue is 758 words, its a great amount of pages, but not the most. The 2007 September Issue remains the biggest issue yet and weighs over 4 pounds and 840 pages in length. The issue was such a big hit, that it got made into a documentary called The September Issue. Its a really interesting documentary and if you ever want a job in the fashion industry, you must watch it.

Thakoon's 2011 Fall collection- Loving all the vibrant colours and patterns! 

Alexander Wang's 2011 fall collection- I love how he pushed beyond the barriers but in a successful way.

What do you guys think?
