If you took a glance at my wardrobe, you would discover many of them – in any shade of color, high-wasted, skinny, with a boyfriend- or boot-cut. I think you know what I am talking about: jeans. There are so many different styles, shades and sizes, but just once in a blue moon you find the “one” which fits perfectly. What makes them so difficult to find are mainly personal body shapes.
And the female jeans can be as different as day and night, Levi’s discovered a system to fulfill every woman’s personal jeans-dream. A survey with 60.000 women and a 3D body scanner made it possible to analyze all these different female body shapes and to subdivide them into three main groups called “Curve ID”.
For this campaign, Peter Lindbergh, a well-known German photographer, shot several stars wearing their personal Levi’s in their Curve ID. For instance, Pixie Geldof who represents the mean shape, named “Demi Curve”, has a feminine body shape. The Swedish musician Lykke Li wears a “Slight Curve” and the German DJane Miss Nine, alias Kristin Schrot, presents her “Bold Curve”. But they didn’t only promote them. They are really positive about them and would even wear them in everyday life since the jeans fit like a second skin.
“Wear what fits. Get rid of the rest. It’s the Wear What Fits Event presented by the Levi’s® brand.
Ladies, we know there are moments in our lives when we realize things don’t fit anymore. That it’s time to pass that antique lamp, sweatshirt, throw rug, handbag or jeans into someone else’s life. Call it a new beginning. A more you, you.
Starting at 10am on Friday, August 27th stop by Bryant Park, NY and bring something in that doesn’t fit (which will go to Goodwill®) and at the same time, get something that does. A free pair of Levi’s® Curve ID jeans. New custom fits for women. Because hotness really does come in all shapes and sizes”

As summertime is festival time, it’s high time to make your wardrobe ready for raucous parties.
But don’t think it is as easy as it seems. Musical festivals demand a thorough preparation. From tip to toe.
If you’re a total rookie in terms of open-air concerts, the best way to get inspiration is taking a leaf out of the star’s books. Cause some of them are real experts.
Since I want to show you the European way of styling and partying, I instance Bianca Vaitl. She’s is a world-league-DJ’s wife, a designer from Munich and she vacations in Interlaken (CH) at the Greenfield festival.
Her personal styling advices
“Only take a minimum of clothes along with you! And don’t forget about rubber boots, a rain cape, warm socks and a scarf which can be perfectly used as a sunscreen too.”
Moreover, you need some basics, otherwise you would be in a fix: a bottle opener, a fixing pin, flashlight, earplugs.
So, if you have all these, let’s get the party started!

Hey everybody meet another new intern!
My name is Sabrina, and I am a prospective journalism student from Cologne, Germany. As from now, I’ll try to update you weekly about the latest fashion trends from overseas as you are maybe not that familiar with European vogue. All in all, I am sort of TFAS’s fashion correspondent from Europe. If there are certain topics about European styles, stars, etc. which you would like to be informed about, please contact Jai & I’ll see what I can do. Of course, I am going to serve you as effectively as possible.
We all know Mischa’s body-weight fluctuations. She literally goes through thick and thin, but she’s back on track with new shoots. After her timeout from business, she landed a job for Philipp Plein.
The German designer began his fashion career in 2004. With his street-fashion collection he set the stage for his first store in the high-end club P1 in Munich. With his Heavy Metal Collection in 2008, he outfitted Heidi Klum’s Germany’s Next Top Models in Barcelona &contracted; Naomi Campbell & Marcus Schenkenberg for a “Vogue” campaign.
For the most of us, his clothing is probably prohibitive. But this amazing collection & Mischa Barton are really worth a look.
