WELCOME TO THE DECEMBER ISSUE AND TO THE MENS EDITION OF THE HOLIDAY ISSUE. This season, as I've previously stated, I was inspired by the iconic photographer HELMUT NEWTON. I adored his 1994 campaign for Gianni Versace. The lighting was severe and the attitude was a bit sexual but extremely sophisticated. In preparing for any shoot, I start with the clothes and then the models. Luckily there were a few that has just signed to agencies here in the city. I must say that it's extremely hard to find a male model that has African features, It's all the rage in Paris. @linowilson comes to us Via @selectmodelchicago. His future is bright and he will make...

LOGO MANIA RETURNS.
When Phoebe Philo was the creative director of Celine, its logo was stamped in small gold letters on all its accessories, discreetly. Enter Hedi Slimane. Its logo is now emblazoned on T-shirts, bags and all things Celine. At Balenciaga, It also use to be discreet. But now It's all Logo. If this is your thing you're in luck. In our featured image three of the leaders of Logomania, Balenciaga, Dior and Gucci. All available at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Welcome to Beautiful Fall: September Will Never Be the Same!
WELCOME TO THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE.
We’re overjoyed with all the melanin popping on the covers of BRITISH VOGUE, AMERICAN VOGUE, ELLE, GLAMOUR, MARIE CLAIRE, and of course TWOmuchSTYLE.
Our cover star, @Iamberry, comes to us via MP Management and is a newbie to the modeling world, a mere few months. We are thrilled to be her first major editorial and cover.
The first thing I said to her upon meeting is, “You know you’re going to be big.” I don’t think she understands that she has the look of the moment, and this will take her to the runways of Paris and beyond. Remember, “You saw her here, first.”
In researching for this month’s fashion...
Its summer, anything embellished is in. We hope you've been following our posts this summer, and we hope you've hit the sales with the best embellished bags to show for it. Our mission here at TWOmuchSTYLE is to inspire you to live the well lived life, be it a bit embellished or not. Valentino's Rock Stud bag's was all the rage last season and we are still in love with it. Summer is always about colorful accessories and we prefer to bring you only the best. The best designers, the best trends and of course the best colors to compliment the coolest looks. The bag in our featured image is Valentino "Rock Stud" Bag with embroidered guitar strap, an added...
Staying Elegant While Being Bold in the Summer Heat
We’re in the midst of this summer’s first heat wave; it’s one hundred degrees today here, in Chicago. At TWOmuchSTYLE, we have the perfect fashion cure for that: sheer!
Sheer – as in see through, diaphanous, and cooling; it’s what we recommend for a hot summer evening. In today’s post, we photographed Rebecca Bailey in an Oscar De La Renta’s silk, tulle embroidered dress with leaf applique worn with a Saint Laurent feather, wrap sandal. A little leg baring look to inspire you to be daring this summer.
Stay cool, let the air in. IT’S SUMMER.

GRANNY PANTIES: WHAT WE’RE LOVING RIGHT NOW!
Granny panties, the brief that’s been showing up on the runways of Paris and Milan, are in every editorial for spring, summer, fall, and winter. Dior’s Maria Grazia Chiuri showed them for fall under sheer skirts. And other designers followed suit!
When styling an ad campaign for Jockey a few weeks back, the Elance brief was on the list in a soft floral matelassé print. The fit is high-waisted and reminiscent of the Dior ones styled in the fall.
The Elance is a perfect fit for summer as it comes in cotton with a...
Welcome to Spring!!
It's all about color this spring. In a few months you will be wearing the brightest pink on your lips and nails as bright as persimon. Products and application is everything. Therefore we bring you the 411 via the artists, Kerre Berry and Jess Monsalvo.
Kerre wanted the makeup look to be minimal, fresh and colorful! For face I used Armani’s iconic Luminous Silk foundation
On the eyes I went with Anastasia Beverly Hills Fresh Peach shadow
With just a soft wash of color around the eye gave her just the right amount of pop.
The lip which I chose for the focus, I used NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Sydney, Milan, and Addis Ababa
These lip creams adds a stunning colorful...
