Matthew Williamson for H&M May 14th!

H&M kicks off another capsule collection at its stores this Thursday with its Matthew Williamson for H&M collection. The collection which launched at select stores over the past month will be at all H&M stores this Thursday.

Williamson who is known for his prints said this about the collection

“I wanted to create a strong urban collection fused with the brand’s signature symbols and shapes. It’s been fascinating to search back through my archives to isolate the most iconic pieces, then rework them for H&M. Colour is one of the defining aspects of my signature style, I focused on the iconic peacock motif seen across my collections to develop a palette of blues, chartreuse and emerald. The spirit of the collection is both covetable and precious"

Celebs are already big fans of the Williamson capsule collection. Check out Katy Perry at an H&M event in the peacock dress with black tights (above)

Style maven Mischa Barton is also a fan of the dress. She achieves a more casual look with retro frames and Alexander McQueen sling back peep-toe booties (above)

The biggest supporter of all seems to be Nicky Hilton she also has the peacock dress (above) as well as many other pieces from the collection.
Here she is in the bronze motorcycle jacket (below)

Head to your nearest H&M this Thursday (as early as possible) so you can snag a few pieces from this collection. The pieces go from day to night and from casual to glam.

Sheer Genius!

The film X-Men Origins Wolverine opened this weekend and screen siren Halle Berry was seen at the premiere last week rocking this black sheath Herve Leger dress with sheer insets. The look was SHEER genius as it gave a lot of sexy while hiding a lot of skin.

Looking to recreate this $1300 piece, head to your nearest American Apparel

American Apparel's Sweetheart Two-Toned Mini Dress retails for $46. The sexy mini dress features a sweetheart neckline, where sheer Nylon Spandex Micro-Mesh (on top) and form-fitting Nylon Tricot (on bottom) meet.
You may be able to catch an X-MAN or two in this get-up, as your EX-BF will be wondering why you two are no longer together when he catches a glimpse of you in this.
