As promised here is more “World Cup Fashion”  I decided to make a list of the teams that I considered were the best dressed or caused an impact in Brazil.

Enjoy 🙂

-GERMANY

GER1 GER2

A total of 130 personnel involved in the national team setup, from management, players to backroom staff will be attired in the German fashion label’s clothings. Casual wear including jacket-pants combinations, t-shirts and sweaters appropriate for the long travel from Germany to Brazil, as well as for relaxed media sessions assure that the team looks chic and comfortable as they mount their title challenge.

Accessories like travel duffel bags and suit luggage carriers from HUGO BOSS also feature in the essentials for the sartorial football player. (by senatus)

 

– MEXICO

The italian luxury fashion house Ermenegildo Zegna designed the made-to-measure suits for the mexican team. The logo is in fluorescent green and the fabric is top quality.

-ENGLAND

Designed by high street retailer Marks and Spencer, the suits, which will be worn by England manager Roy Hodgson and his players, come in charcoal grey and are packed with special design features.

These include an embroidered World Cup winners’ star on the inside envelope pocket, the England crest on the Autograph label and a red, white and blue sleeve and pocket lining. (by dailymail)

Scott Fyfe, M&S Head of Buying, said. “Made from lightweight British cloth and impeccably tailored, the suit is modern and relevant, representing the very best of British tailoring.”

– ITALY

Team Italy was by far the most impressive, wearing three-piece, navy colored suits by their official sponsor since 2006, Dolce & Gabbana (by ibtimes)

I´d say one of the most impressive.

At the airport the players arrived al dressed up!

World Cup

As many of you may have witnessed I went a little crazy this past month. I´m not usually this obsessed with soccer but…well once every four years can´t hurt right?

The thing with the World Cup is that it´s not only about soccer, is about having something to watch during the summer…jk…it´s about identity, the opportunity to love and support your team and your country…or also the country who has a special place in your heart.

In my case is Mexico and Germany… I was born in Mexico and have been in the german school 2/3 of my life…so you can imagine the World Cup I had… 🙂

The social media went crazy with the reactions of the mexican Coach Miguel Herrera…gif12 3

Some performances were Oscar worthy:

Why Ballet?

Renaissance…15th century…France…Ballet

An art? A sport?

DANCE.

Image

What we can learn from Ballet is not only to be more flexible or to be able to walk with our shoulders back….

We can learn to express ourselves, to come back and don´t give up…to ignore the pain.

I´ve never practice this beautiful art…which takes years and years of practice, you can see 2 years old dancing way better than I ever would! …but I´ve learned to appreciate it because I´ve  watched it since I was very little…Thanks mom! I finally got it and don´t sleep during  a performance anymore 😉

It´s not a girls sport though…the strength, the discipline, the will you need to master ballet is outrageous. Some dancers may be gay but they are also one of the most gorgeous and fit guys you´ll ever meet. Quite masculine…Image

The pain that the dancers have to overcome is quite brutal… have you ever seen dancers feet?

I invite you to appreciate these beautiful ART…go to the ballet and enjoy what you are watching, the strength,courage and perfection…

These are one of the top ballets around the world

The Mariinsky (Kirov ) Ballet
The Bolshoi Ballet
Paris Opera Ballet
The Royal Ballet
American Ballet Theater
Stuttgart Ballet
New York City Ballet
La Scala Theatre Ballet
Nederlands Dans Theater
National Ballet of Cuba

I had the honor of watching the Mariinsky Ballet and I´m speechless…It´s a nice way of getting out of the routine and delight ourselves 🙂

Well-known stories such as the Nutcracker, Cinderella, Peter Pan, The Sleeping Beauty, A Midsummer Night Dream, Romeo and Juliet and of course Swan Lake are performed.

If you want to get more involved  and have some fun as well watch Dance Academy , a nice teen comedy-drama to watch at night on Netflix… a friend of mine who used to practice ballet recommended it so…there you go!

ONCE UPON A TIME…

Once Upon a Time I watched a TVshow where Snow White and Prince Charming had a daughter…they didn´t live in the Enchanted Forest anymore but  in Main,USA and did not know each other… a show where Little Red Riding Hood was the wolf and where Belle and Grumpy were friends…Happy Endings did not exist anymore

Truth to be told I felt truly, madly, deeply in love with this show AND with its clothes.

Once Upon a Time´s wardrobe is nothing but charming!

Yes, it is placed in the  United States but you also get to known the past of our beloved fairy tales characters which is placed in the Enchanted Forest…so you can imagine.

The show was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Costumes last year!

Emilie de Ravin  (Belle) said  “They are making the most intricate gowns that the most high-ending wedding designers would take three weeks to make, and they are perfect. I mean, the petticoats have lace and are stitched perfectly and you never see them…Being able to feel so in character from an outfit is a unique feeling.”


Let´s take a look!

 Belle´s beautiful dress and the amazing detailing on her bodice

Yes! Snow White with a sword. But let´s focus on her beautiful wedding dress

 My favorite outfit! Camel leggings, high boots and that amazing cloak! Love it.

 

Snow White and Little Red Red Riding Hood´s cloaks. The detailing and layering are just fantastic!

Cinderellas´s classic dress with beautiful flower embellishments…Marvelous.

Get a better look!

Here is Red´s skirt…delightful details in the skirt and perfect bodice!

You must know that I don´t like pink dresses but I had to admit that this one was beautifully made. The red dress (Snow White´s mom dress) is  completely charming, love the cleavage!

Heres the Evil Queen before being Evil and before being the Queen. Young and sweet Regina wears camel leggings and a quite feminine baby blue coat before riding!

Regina on her horse with this fabulous cloak! Look at the Juliette sleeves.

Being the Evil Queen, Regina wears a  sexy red dress with a magnificent cleavage. One of my favorites!

Here is the Evil Queen´s riding costume. Black brocade, Leather caplet, a sharply tailored corset and a jaunty black hat show a powerful independent and really evil woman.

Leaving the image of the big and blue genie behind, this genie looks chic and interesting. The persian air is perfect.

Here´s Rumpelstiltskin one of my favorite characters on the show! He is featuring a tight coat and awesome lace-up pants.  There´s definitely some punk influence here…

The Huntsman looking handsome in his armor.May be uncomfortable…but looks great!

Last but not least… the love of many(including myself) Prince Charming ♡.Here is he wearing his royal cloak with rich gold trims and bottoms,very elegant.

The show starts it´s third season this fall….Watch it if you haven´t and tell me your opinion.

Share your favorite costume as well!

Interesting fact… Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow White) and Josh Dallas (Prince Charming) are dating in real life! I could t believe it, but it is true, they look really cute together if you ask me.

I´ll leave you with this quote:

“Snow White: Believing in even the possibility of a happy ending is a very powerful thing.”

  

And also with this adorable fairy costume!
