Welcome to week two of Who’s Haute? Thursdays. For those of you who might have missed last week’s edition, here’s a quick recap.

Sparks and was the first woman in the WNBA to win both Rookie of the Year and Most Valuable Player.

London Fog, a brand best known for their trench coats and handbags, has announced that power couple Eva Longoria Parker and Tony Parker will appear in their new holiday 2009 campaign.

The winner of the Women’s Classic Racewear category will be chosen during the Melbourne Cup Carnival, Australia’s most famous horse race. Each year, on the first Tuesday in November, “the race that stops a nation,” takes place at the Flemington Racecourse, and fashion is definitely at the forefront.

MCQUEEN AND PUMA: TEAMMATES ONCE AGAIN

Posted on October 16th, by HeatherZeller in BLOG. No Comments

Alexander McQueen and Puma have had an ongoing relationship since 2005. The two recently collaborated to extend the Alexander McQueen for Puma line to include a full collection of men’s and women’s apparel and accessories. A designer known for his innovation in the sports-fashion realm, McQueen continues to push
boundaries with his designs.

The new collection of Puma X Alexander McQueen was inspired in large part by the concept of “Power.” Each season’s collection will have a seasonal theme related to a specific sport. The Fall/Winter 2009 collection references Boxing, a sport closely associated with the idea of “Power.”

Bold colors, unique styles, intricate details and modern design all enhance the “Power” of this sport and make the new collection a must-have this season.

WHO’S HAUTE? THURSDAYS: DHANI JONES

Posted on October 14th, by HeatherZeller in BLOG. No Comments

Welcome to the first of edition of Who’s Haute? Thursdays. Each week, A Glam Slam will feature an athlete who is relevant both on and off the field, the ice or the court. A Glam Slam will highlight these athletes’ relationships to their sport and their lifestyle away from the game.

The Cincinnati Bengals are off to one of the hottest starts in the NFL and that’s due in no small part to their starting linebacker, Dhani Jones. From his days at the University of Michigan to his stints with the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles, Jones has been as productive and reliable as they come.

When Jones is not blitzing quarterbacks or tackling running backs, he’s the host of Travel Channel’s Dhani Tackles The Globe, a show that merges sports and culture around the world.

And when he’s not in front … Read More »



FASHION POLICE: SPORTS FAN EDITION

Posted on October 14th, by HeatherZeller in BLOG. No Comments

There is nothing worse than having to climb the stadium stairs in a pair of stilettos. Or leaving your Birkin bag below your seat only to find it covered in beer and
chewed up gum at the end of the game. Or to be the victim of a certain (and explicit) chant because you chose not to support the home team.

To avoid a major violation the next time you attend a sporting event, take a look at A Glam Slam’s Top 10 Fashion Faux Pas:

Wearing the jersey of a team from a different sport, or a team who is not playing in the game you are attending. Unless your wardrobe consists only of team jerseys (which would bring up a whole different set of problems), stick to the teams in the game.
Wearing your own name on the back of your jersey if you are older than the age … Read More »



BATTLE OF THE BRIEFS: BECKHAM VS. RONALDO

Posted on October 13th, by HeatherZeller in BLOG. No Comments

Move over Becks because you’ve been replaced by a new soccer stud. Though David Beckham has been the face of Emporio Armani underwear for the past four seasons, the fashion house recently announced that 24 year-old Real Madrid player and captain of Portugal’s national soccer team, Cristiano Ronaldo, will be the new spokesmodel for Emporio Armani Men’s Underwear and Armani Jeans, beginning in Spring/Summer 2010. But don’t feel bad for Becks. He’s rumored to be starting
his own branded underwear line in 2010.

Cristiano’s got some big…um…cleats to fill. Which half-naked billboard would you rather see?

ABOUT ME

Posted on October 5th, by HeatherZeller in BLOG. Comments Off on ABOUT ME

People have
always found it strange that my two favorite things seem to have no connection at all. I can rattle off NBA stats one minute and
share my favorite new fashion trends the next. I split my time shopping
online designer sample sales while checking on the day’s scores. My
two dream jobs are a fashion designer and/or a sideline reporter.

As the only girl in between two boys, my Mom thrived
on turning me into her own little fashionista. And because of my Dad, I was
watching Yankee games before I could talk. When it
came time to choose a college, it’s no surprise that I ended up at a Big 10
school, the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

For the past five years, I’ve been working in an industry dominated by women, where
morning coffee talk does not typically involve a discussion of … Read More »
