We just saw the DIOR Secret Garden – Versailles commercial and literally had an eye-gasm! This film was shot in the palace and the gardens of Versailles by fashion image masters Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. The ad campaign shows gorgeous views of this incredible place combined with beautiful pieces from the Dior Pre-Fall 2012 Collection. The garments featured in this campaign are absolutely magnificent!
In the ad, Russian model Daria Strokous is running through the deserted halls of the Galerie des Glaces in a stunning black gown with emotion-filled eyes telling us a story of a girl who is possibly in love (We’d like to think there is a connection to the handsome gentleman who appears later on for a brief moment)! She is joined by models Melissa Stasiuk and Xiao Wen Ju to showcase Dior’s gorgeous collection. As we are taken on a journey through the beautiful interconnecting hallways adorned by golden chandelliers and the breathtaking gardens and fountains of Versailles, we become not only jealous of Daria’s perfect wardrobe, but also of her character’s imaginary life in this beautiful place!
This video is an absolute must see!
All this magic is accompanied by the most incredible song by Depeche Mode – Enjoy the Silence, adding to the allure of this deserted Chateau and the pieces of the House of Dior. We couldn’t think of a more perfect ad campaign than this!
As we head into the warm summer months, wedding season and bridal showers move into full gear!

To survive this bridal season, we’ve selected spectacular dresses that are perfect to wear for either occasion! All of these fabulous finds are now available at www.pavlyn.ca !
1. Bringing Sexy back with Naven
This season is all about understated sexiness – cover up that heavy cleavage and leave a little mystery with a backless dress. Our pick is this Naven Party Dress which is a total show stopper! It’s no wonder that A-list starlets including Kristen Cavallari and Lo Bosworth have been rocking this party dress! We absolutely adore the bubble skirt bottom, boat-neck front and open back, creating the perfectly understated sexy silhouette! And to top it all off, the Party dress features trendy padded cup sleeves with removable shoulder pads. This dress is elegant, classy and chic – just perfect for a summer wedding! You can wear this dress on its own or accessorize it with a thick statement necklace, giving it a fun, edgy twist! Get yours now at www.pavlyn.ca
2. Pretty in Pleats
It seems that we cannot stop preaching pleats and rightfully so! This trend is here to stay, adding a touch of femininity to any garment. Our pick for a summer wedding staple is Isabel Lu’s pleated dress! We are totally in love with this dress both in Seabreeze and Chick yellow colours! Maria Menounos was recently spotted rocking this cute dress with a pair of wedges and a brown belt! Even better than just pleats is pleats with pastels – this season’s hottest colours. This breezy semi-sheer dress is perfect for an outdoor summer wedding and the small accordion pleating will keep you looking so on-trend! You can wear this little number casually with a brown belt or accessorize it with a sparkly gold clutch and shiny bangles – you’ll be looking glam in no time!

Naven’s Heartthrob dress is flirty, fun and totally fashionable! This adorable dress features a sweetheart neckline and delicate gold rope straps! Khloe Kardashian looks fantastic in this dress! The flattering cut and soft fabric work with Khloe’s curves to create a flawless and feminine silhouette! We love the way both ladies achieved a softer look by accessorizing this dress with neutral tones, such as nude clutch and pumps!
4. The Highs and Lows

What’s long and elegant in the back and chic and sexy in the front? Its Blaque Label’s High-Low Dress of course! What a show-stopper! This Sweetheart Chiffon Dress by Blaque Label is our favourite way to steal the show! And we\re not the only ones – celebs like Kourtney Kardashian and Denise Richards have rocked this dress in Blue on the red carpet! We absolutely adore the ruffled sweetheart neckline, making the dress appear both sexy and delicate! High-low dresses are a must-have look for summer 2012 (we told you!) so this asymmetrical chiffon overlay is ultra-chic! We love this dress paired with black pumps and a matching clutch!
We can’t wait to attend to our next wedding or bridal shower! The only problem will be deciding which one of these fabulous dresses to wear!
Sometimes Fridays can be one of those days when you just want to leave your heels behind and be comfortable in your flats, and why not? After a long week of all work and no play, you deserve it! To create a bit of distraction, I opted out to pair my flats with a bright red pair of denim jeans by J brand. For those of you who have never worn J Brand, I should probably warn you that when you try your first pair on, you’ll realize the injustice that all those other brands have been doing to your figure!!! J Brand makes jeans that are not only of the highest quality, but are also soft and comfortable, and unquestionably flattering. They will fit you like a glove! I am absolutely obsessed with my pair of the Zoey Mid Rise Triple Zip Skinny in Lipstick (how adorable is that colour name?). The vibrant lipstick red can be spotted from a mile away, and the three zippers at the hip line give this pair just a touch of edge.
While I really like to dress up this red with a white or black blazer, or even a crisp white dress shirt, today was all about being casual, well nautical casual to be exact. Red is a great colour for a killer nautical combination, I just love the way it works with the navy stripes on my sweater.
What I’m wearing: J Brand Zoey Mid Rise Skinny in Lipstick (available at www.pavlyn.ca now!), Club Monaco striped sweater, Massimu Dutti loafers.
Happy Friday Lovelies!
As fashionistas, we understand the importance of fashion accessories and their magical ability to transform any look! We believe that ultra-chic accessories are an essential item that can easily add color, texture and visual allure to one’s wardrobe! That’s why we’re obsessed with La Mer Collection watches – not only do they come in fabulous colours, quality leathers wrap-around leathers and adorable charms, they will also make sure that you’re never ever late again! We’re not the only ones going bananas over these watches – in a recent issue of The Zoe Report , Rachel Zoe explains key features to look for in an affordable watch and suggests the La Mer watches as her pick (at only $115CAD!!!).
“…what time is it? 11:30 AM sharp says the Hermés Medor Watch with a stainless steel case, silver pyramids and beautiful calfskin strap. I. Die. From the trademark orange band to the youthful stud detailing, this timepiece is quintessentially Hermés. As with anything from the French fashion house, it is the ultimate luxury and a collector’s piece that will only appreciate in value. I am not going to lie…I dream in Hermés. Splurge on it if you can or look to it as inspiration and seek out something similar. Key features to look for: a square camouflaged face, leather band in a classic black or an unexpected, fun color and pyramid studs. Now throw one on and don’t be late. xoRZ”
