Just a Salad for me with a Side of Superga…Yummy!
The FashionPop girls are big fans of Supergas and have been for years (yes, before they were cool) and we can’t wait to get our hands on Superga latest range. The announcement came last week when they informed their fans on their website that they are teaming up with the no.1 Italian fashion blogger, The Blonde Salad. The italian beauty has designed a range of uber cool, hipster and undoubtedly cute designs that are driving us crazy!
The latest edition of designed sneakers to hit the superga range of beauties comes from Chiara Ferragni and since she knows fashion, we just had to tell you all about her too.
Who is the Blonde Salad, AKA Chiara Ferragni?
She is a 20 something fashion blogger/Law student from Italy she started her fashion blog in 2009 and it skyrocketed from the get go. Her jump start into the fashion blogging world was an obvious effect due to her natural sense of style and isn’t afraid to show it. she gives her tips on what to wear, what not to wear and how to make due with what you’ve got. She loves her couture and her street brands too, especially Superga.
So lets delve deep into the designs that she has launched for the comfortable italian shoe brand.
There is the FashionPop Girls favourite and that’s the spotted (brown and black) design. This print comes close to wearing giraffe and animal print and that is back this autum/fall. It has a cute design and it can be worn with both dark and light colours. It is both eye catching and funky at the same time! Wait, did we mention we love giraffes and sneakers and now they’re combined!
The other funky style is the camouflage (green, brown and black) design. This cool and much needed print of the season following through to next summer is emblazoned on the supergas shoe. These can be worn with any style you like as long as you are not doubling up on prints.
If you are going to stick to a print across your outfit then try to only repeat it in a scarf in order to compliment the shoes! This touch of print on your shoes will instantly transform you into a fashionista without even trying too hard.
Both come in the cotton lining version and and their signature rubber sole.
If you want to combine trend and sophistication, then the third design is the one for you.
The idea, spawned by two Italian brands, brings a leather upper print of a crocodile skin effect, cotton lining, a 4cm platform and cured natural rubber sole. This is only available in black.

The Blonde Salad isn’t the only designer range from Superga. There is an especially popular range from The Man Repeller that was launched earlier this year.
We can’t wait to get your hands on these, and hope you get to buy them too!
Both models will be available as a limited edition from October 28th so make sure to order yours ASAP!
Adorable Fashion: 5 Reasons Why you Need to Know Alonso Mateo
We love fashion, and we love pop culture and when those two come together, you get Fashion Pop!
The FashionPop team came across a little fellow who just loves fashion, and isn’t afraid to show it to the world. Infact, he has used our fave photo sharing platform to show us his swagger and style. Meet Alonso Mateo. This little fashion-icon posts daily trendy selfies of his personal style on his Instagram account. His adorable poses make it all that cuter and stylish. Perhaps a future fashion big shot?
In each gram pic, he strikes a confident pose, hand nearly always in pocket, looking off into the far distance. The pics could be right off the fashion pages of GQ but they’re not.
The quality is so good that these micro fashion shoots with uber cool location such as palm trees, swimming pool and of course some cute dogs, look like he is prince of fashion and is loving it too.
He certainly has created quite a buzz on social media platform instagram, and its ever growing.
With a fashion stylist mother, lets see how the tiny guy impresses us fashion lovers!

Everyone loves to wear shades, especially in the summer and when you look cool wearing them who can resist. Some can pull of some styles while others make the glasses look seriously uncool (you need to know what suits your face). Alonso, with his perfect swagger, can wear any pair of sunnies like they were made for him and still make you wish he was your baby brother. His particular favourite style are aviators but anything goes for this little guy.

2. He loves a good blazer
The boy likes to keep warm in style! What can we say? We love it! Maybe he will be the new royal baby’s style adviser for tot fashion? One of his favourite style trends is to colour coordinate his blazers. He wears them with jeans, a dress shirt, and he has even tried timeless smart blazers. Cute cute cute!

3. He dresses better than most guys we know
It’s every girls dream to have a son one day that we can dress to perfection but whats important is that, like many of the great leaders of the world, he has a wonderful woman behind him. Alonso’s mother is the woman behind the little man’s success, being a stylist herself, she goes shopping with the little man at every opportunity and helps him decide on all the cute outfits he wears. Together, the Mateos are real style icon we should be watching.
4. He follows the rules of fashion
He doesn’t mix colours that could clash, and he certainly doesn’t wear socks with sandals! Now that we think about it, he hasn’t been in a pair of sweatpants in any picture we have seen. Pure fashion all the way and its just a shared hobby for him and his mum (awww).
5. He is grounded, despite all the attention
He’s cool as a cucumber, and a good boy!

Conclusion? We love him and can’t wait to see him grow up into a man with followers who love and emulate his fab style!
Kelly Osbourne wins Ultimate Style Icon at Cosmopolitan Women of The Year Awards!
First of all, Kelly, we love you and you go girl for your personal achievements!
Second of all, the transformation that Kelly has made over the years is just wonderfully inspiring.
Ambition is a key factor in my personal life and i commend Kelly for getting to the place she wanted to be.
Kelly is a fully-fledged fashionista to you and me but the 28-year-old star couldn’t hide her disbelief as she was the recipient of the Ultimate Style Award at Tuesday night’s Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of The Year Awards 2012 with VO5.
Well done Kel!
Taking to the stage at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, she said: ‘I used to look like s**t. I never thought I’d get a style award. And Cosmo putting me on their cover a couple of years ago did wonders for my self-esteem.’
Showing off her trim figure in a form-fitting floral print silver and lilac silk dress, the Fashion Police host looked simply stunning.
While her dress accentuated her slim waist, her shoes added height to her frame with a pair of towering peep-toe stilettos, while she kept her lilac curls swept to one side.

Will this Chanel Bag make it to the streets?
The Runway can be one scary place for the average Fashionista! The pressure of finding the newest trend in time, being the first to spot it, trying to find the right way to take it from the runway to the the streets the right way!
The newest BIG trend/item du jour to hit the runway and (possibly) make it to the streets is the enormous and slightly ridiculous hula hoop shaped Chanel bag (intended for use as a beach bag), designed by Karl Lagerfeld for Paris Fashion Week’s Chanel Show.
The French design house delivered a triumphant collection at the luxurious setting of the Grand Palais hosting some stellar front row eye candy including the likes of Jennifer Lopez and her four-year-old daughter Emme - both clutching Chanel bags.
The question is, will this ‘Bag’ make it to the streets? We hope not…

Hope you’re not allergic to six packs: Abercrombie & Fitch models sing along to Call Me Maybe
Why? We don’t know but enjoy this (kinda) fashion related feast!
In October of 2011, Abercrombie & Fitch discovered Carly Rae’s ‘Call Me Maybe’ and launched the song on its official soundtrack. To celebrate the song’s Summer popularity, A&F asked its hottest guys (aren’t they all hot?) from its Flagship stores all around the world to have fun with the song, film it on their phones and to do whatever came naturally… This is what the guys sent back!
We would flash our legs too if we looked like Carrie Underwood!
Carrie Underwood is no stranger to showing off her legs, so it’s a good thing it was sunny in London the other day.
The 29-year-old singer found the perfect opportunity to flaunt her enviable figure when she attended her album launch in London last night.
The oh-so-cute star looked glowingly beautiful as she arrived at the Arts Club in a mixture of green, yellow and black.
Making the most of the nice weather, Carrie teamed a pair of green sequined shorts with a long floaty yellow top which she wore with a lighter green jacket.
Her long blonde hair was blowdried to perfection, and the tan on her legs was more than evident.
Carrie completed her look with a pair of black sparkly ankle boots and a gold necklace as she headed inside to promote her latest record, Blown Away.
Earlier on, it was all business in London as she made an appearance at Radio 2’s studios looking just lovely in this casual chic outfit more suitable for the colder London weather.
We hope Carrie’s outfits inspired you to make your own fashion pop!

WE LOVE ALEXA and David too!
This is an official Alexa Alert!
Yes, there she is, delicately popped on top of a postbox, with the oh-so-hot model David Gandy - who incidentally was everywhere during the weekend (These days captured more on the streets than on the catwalk), is representing British Fashion.
Alexa Chung, the British Fashion Council ambassador, was a regular fixture with the boys, was DJ-ing the night away at the Mr Porter/Jimmy Choo/Esquire party and not dissapointing might i add!
One of the Telegraph reporters was there too and had a recap - “Well we had a great turnout. Jon Hamm [aka Don Draper] came, Florence Welch came, Alexa Chung DJ’d, David Gandy came, Sherlock Holmes came. It was fun, it was boozy and it went on til God-knows-when.” Was there bad behaviour?” No, none. But there was dancing. We had Graham Norton and David Furnish on the dance floor which was a very Esquire moment, as you can imagine.”
Remember to keep your fashion POPing!
H&M Fashion News Alert!
OK, so we love these H&M collaborations and this one is set to please…we hope anyways!
Maison Martin Margiela, a Belgian born designer has signed the deal to collaborate with the Swedish fashion brand, H&M.
How excited are we that one of our favourite stores on the high street is releasing a new collection with what we hear is a great brand in Europe.
Although the designer is Belgian born, Maison Martin Margiela is a French fashion house created in 1988 which has always followed its own path, toying with fashion norms and using deconstruction and transformation to create new fashion staples for their customers.
They aim to take you further away from the conventional fashion framework, and get you closer to understanding what the brand is all about.
The collection in collaboration with H&M will be released on November 15th (We can’t wait!) in select stores across the world, offering clothes and accessories for both men and women.
So, how excited are we?? We hope you get to the store and actually get something decent without losing a finger…
Cannes Film Festival 2012: THE Best dressed men
It’s not all about the gowns at the Cannes Film Festival, there have been some pretty slick men striking a pose on the event too…
The men have been looking deliciously suave in relaxed open shirts and some yummy suits. Actors Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy took a stroll between photo calls, hearty beards in tow (WE do love a hearty beard!) wearing some classic and cool suits. Did i hear someone say…SEXY!

Want Jennifer Aniston’s City Celeb Style? This is how to copy it!
We love Jennifer! we just do. She recently took a trip with boyfriend Justin Theroux to lovely, lovely Paris, and after a change of clothes after landing, Jennifer became city chic in a matter of a camera snap.
Jennifer chose to roam the romantic city in a classic-slash-cool look: a navy ultra-amazing double-breasted blazer with gold buttons, a white tank (oh so classic), cuffed jeans, super comfy (perfect for that city chic look) Superga trainers. She topped off the outfit with mirrored aviators, a brown bag and a printed Balmain scarf.

If you have a city break coming up, then you’ll want to look cute, hot, sophisticated and all round Jennifer-tastic! Take a leaf out of Jennifer’s laid-back chic look on one of your days out and about and make those locals feel like they should be copying you!
Bringing back the ‘stache in style
With the newest show from Bravo all the way from Tehrangeles (the persian version of Los Angeles) named Shah’s of Sunset in full swing and already with a huge following; the only thing to expect is absolute gold - pardon the persian pun ;)
One of the stars of the show, Reza Farahan, is honestly one of the nicest and real people i have come across in the media. One of the (persian) girls of FashionPop contacted him via twitter from the @fashionpopgirls handle and he was quick to respond. What a nice guy! He was conversational and open to us on the social network.
Photo taken from http://www.bravotv.com
Reza is, without even trying, (well we think so anyways) bringing back the ‘stache. The mustache is slowly moving away from its association with evil terrorist and heading into stylish and handsome accessory for the modern man. And what a mustache it is. People are going ‘stache crazy on twitter, facebook and any other social media forums out there!
Reza has quickly risen in popularity due to his ‘real’ personality and his famous one liners on the show. He is well dressed and stylish, successful and most importantly a nice guy. They are out there.
This new media icon really dresses well and we all know a well dressed man is worth a lot.
Image taken from http://weknowmemes.com
Here’s an example of how Reza dresses. From his twitter account. Mmmm…hmmm…he’s looking hot.
Image taken from Reza’s twitter @RezaFarahan
One more word and this one is for Reza…i know you said that: “Telling somebody that they’re wearing H&M in our group is basically calling them a broke ass.” But I’m Persian and I love H&M (and i don’t care)…they help badly dressed people every day to be more fashionable. There’s gotta be something good in that!
Must dash everyone…
(For all you Reza lovers…you can ‘stache it up too!)
