I’m finally starting to see the results of my plan to take over the world: two hot celebrities are wearing WendyB-approved items this week.
The first is Alexa Chung, the MTV It Girl who makes all the fashion bloggers’ hearts go pitter patter. She’s wearing the Matilda sword necklace from my jewelry line on page 79 of the September 2009 issue of Marie Claire. Woot! Marie Claire kindly put this feature online. Click the photo to see the whole thing.
If you haven’t read my Book Club posts on Empress Matilda, the inspiration for the necklace and one of my all-time favorite royal ladies, here they are.
(Yes, yes, the Book Club posts will return. I’m working on it. I swear.)
Thanks to the gorgeous bloggers who posted about the Marie Claire credit, including Susanna, Jillian and Geri. If I haven’t mentioned you, it’s because I haven’t seen it yet! Holla at me and let me know.
The second celebrity is my personal friend Jen Weitzman, who wrote about the Francis dress I helped her pick out.*
Jen doesn’t have a TV show, but all of my friends and clients are gorgeous A-list celebrities to me, and I will cut a bitch who dares to say otherwise. I’ve got a Matilda sword necklace and I’m not afraid to use it.
*On my now-defunct Francis blog.
Warren Beatty says
Celebrities? You call these celebrities? None of these babes hold a candle to Natalie Wood. You know, I nailed Natalie Wood.
Miss Janey says
Mad props, Miss Wendy.
You know what I love about you Wendy? You are not above threatening violence to get your point across. I admire that in a person.
That necklace is beautiful. One day it shall be mine. (You’re not the only one with world domination plans around here.)
alexandra keller says
i just think Alexa’s hot! I like the necklace, too
Prêt-à-Porter P says
she doesnt set my heart pitter patter, and i dont really know who she is, but i know that she’s very popular for some people, so congratulations!!!
Nancy magoo says
Stunning jewellery by the way. Might just have to save my pennies if that skull ring is still for sale. Adore!
Midtown Girl says
So proud of you chickie!! Great things happen to Awesome people…more to come for sure and I cant wait!
(ps – spam word was goddess again lol)
Wendy, you are so amazing! Congrats on the well deserved success. The necklace is fab and looks great on Alexa! Kudos!
The Little Fashion Treasury says
Happy sunny friday, Wendy!
I´ll hopefully call a “Wendy jewelry piece” mine one day in the future 😉
Enjoy your weekend!
Couture Allure says
Congrats on the Marie Claire credit! I love that dress on your friend. Great colors!
It’s great to see Alexa in your designs. I find her quite annoying to watch on TV but you can’t deny she’s got style.
Go Ahead Wendy!! Congrats! I don’t know why i wanted to launch into “Moving on up, to the Eastside, to a deluxe appartment in the skyyyyyeee….” lol
oh! this is fantastic 🙂 nice!
also, whenever i see photos of alexa chung, i think i need a better haircut!
congrats darling! this is very cool!
xx-LJ from SOS!
Yay, continue taking over the world, please!
Gem Fatale says
Firstly, congratulations on Marie Claire, the necklace is gorgeous.
Secondly, how subject-appropriate that the anti spam word i just had to type in to post a comment on your blog was ‘bejewel’!
Congrats and well deserved. Your pieces are amazing.
The Clothes Horse says
Ooh, the Matilda is my favorite. I do like the way Alex dresses (get is dressed by others…), but always I wonder why her hair looks so…unspecial.
hi wendy! i love your jewelry and the necklace definitely pulled alexa’s outfit together. congrats!
alexa chung is amazing & has fabulous taste – this is definitely a congratulations!
I finally got the chance to go back and read your Book Club posts on Matilda. And I have to say I LOVED ‘EM! Now I need to add to my reading list “When Christ and his Saints slept” Of course I’ll mentally change the name in the whole book 😉
I have the Sunne in Splendour, Falls the Shadow and The Reckoning and only just read them this past winter.
Iron Chic says
Besides your necklace, that Alexa outfit is kinda WTF.
I don’t know what the big deal is about that alexa chung. but sooooo happy for you! that necklace is my favorite one of yours by far.
Oh my! Alexa Chung! Congratulations! 🙂
thats absolutely fantastic, very well well deserved
alexa chungs style is just perfect!
I’m noticing the two gorgeous women are holding their hands very similarly. They both must know a thing or two about striking a pose.
Chic and Charming says
I so love your book club posts, I can’t wait for them to return.
Congrats!!! Alexa Chung oolala
Woah pretty cool news!! I don’t know what all the hype about Alexa Chung is, she looks pretty ordinary to me but it’s uberly cool that famous people are wearing your designs!
Princess Dominique says
Awesome Wendy! You ROCK like a star! I follow you on Twitter (@MissPrincessDom) and I love love love when you said: Wendy thinks some retailers are suicidal. Bad customer service + no effort to promote designers = see you at your going-out-of-business sale. Can you say it again, put it on tees and make a bumper sticker?!?!
last night, reading Marie Claire:
Me: “WENDY B! Oh, look Nathan!~ It’s Wendy B!”
Nathan: “That’s that Chung girl”
Me: “No, here…WENDY B!”
AHAHAHA. I was so excited for you. I then had to explain that no, it was not the first time you had been in a magazine,I just get really excited over bloggers.
Ha ha! I love that. Thanks, Erin.
