Lifestyle blogger Meghan Yuri Young teamed up with ELLE Canada and PANDORA Jewellery to offer her take on modern fall accessorizing.
HER TAKE ON THE TREND: “Upgrading everyday basics like blazers or camisoles is my favourite way to interpret fall’s velvet trend. Velvet can be worn day or night; I really think it’s all about the colour you choose. For daytime, I’d wear this plush texture in fresher, neutral tones like blush or beige. For nighttime, velvet looks rich in midnight blue or emerald green. Simple styling of staple accessories also makes it modern – it’s fashion forward without the fuss. I like playing with size and shape layering longer and shorter pendant necklaces and then wrapping wrists with sterling silver, gold and two-tone metals. I love the contrast between a luxe velvet jacket and high-shine bracelets and rings with skinny, sparkly bands that catch the light.”
Not long after celebrity prankster Vitalli Sediuk got his ass kicked by Gigi Hadid for assaulting her, he was caught earlier today violating yet another woman.
His target? Kim Kardashian.
The video taken by @makeupbymario depicts Kim making her way through the crowd while out and about during Paris Fashion Week, when suddenly, Sediuk comes from behind her and gets on bended knee to kiss her butt. Seriously, what is wrong with this guy? This incident marks his second attack on the reality star. He tried to grab her butt two years ago, also at PFW.
Kim was rushed inside as her security team tackled him to the ground. She later praised her bodyguard on Twitter for being on top of it, literally.

Brides, take note.
The best new bridal party activity is courtesy of Rodarte's spring/summer 2017 show, where hairstylist Odile Gilbert and her team used leftover scraps of fabric from the clothing to create about 80-90 custom hair accessories.
"We bought some headbands and barrettes, and created some flowers and ribbons," explains Gilbert of the process. "You cut into the material, you twist it and tie it and put it on a barrette in an easy way. It’s nothing special, everybody can do that. It's something you don't think is easy, but it’s easy."
The project took them one day – "[There was a] big table and music," says Gilbert. For a bridal party, try using material cut from a dress that was altered, or buy fabric specifically for the task if none if available. The key to preventing the accessories from falling out is buying quality barrettes: Gilbert used a classic French brand, but see what is available at your drugstore.
Models were outfitted with a minimum of three accessories – a combination of barrettes and headbands, placed in "unexpected ways" – and sometimes more, depending on the outfit. "We wanted the accessories to look like a kid did it in school, like if it's Mother’s Day and instead of buying something you create something for your mom," says Gilbert. They were placed so not to be visible from the front, leaving the focus on the dress. "In the back, you have the surprise," she adds.
"There was no inspiration. It was Rodarte. It’s based off the collection," Gilbert notes. "It's funny, because everybody always asks, 'Is it the '20s, is it the '30s?' No, no: It's 2016, going into 2017. So it’s today. A girl who wants to look pretty and beautiful, that's the inspiration."
