Karl Lagerfeld presented his latest designs for Fendi’s fall/winter 2017-18 season earlier this afternoon at Milan Fashion Week, bringing an ultra-polished array of staples on stage. Fendi’s fall/winter 2017-18 ready-to-wear collection also confirmed three of next season’s hottest trends, of course, here revisited through Lagerfeld’s visionary lens. 
The first thing that literally popped out to our eyes was the great amount of fiery reds Karl Lagerfeld colored both his clothing staples and accessories with, a shade used in many other designer collections for fall, as done, for instance, earlier this morning by Ian Griffiths for his latest Max Mara fall 2017 collection, too. Lagerfeld’s focus on red was so strong, he even decided to create total-red looks one cannot help but be obsessed with.

the Fendi fall 2017 line-up was so refined and polished, all of its items exuded one-of-a-kind elegance that also evoked some of the fashion house’s vintage legacies, specifically expressed through the tailored mannish suits, long coats and a-line skirts.

For this reason, short crop-tops were to be found along with high-waisted skirts, while flared skirts got harmonized either by curve-hugging waistcoats or belts cinched at the waists. The collection’s fabrics were architecturally balanced too, with luxurious fur being paired with glam-rock patent leather, and sensual see-through appliqués being combined with soigné velvets and jerseys.

ncredibly romantic and filled with sophisticated, fashion forward detailing, the 2017 Nicole bridal collection features the most stunning lineup from the Italian label yet! Exquisite lace appliques and stunning beading and embroideries adorn each of the wedding dress in this collection, resulting in utterly dreamy looks that are simply unforgettable. 

For the new season, Nicole is making haute couture sensibilities accessible to every bride in an approach called prêt-à-couture

“Nicole is reinventing itself as a trendy collection that blends tradition and romance with modern taste. 
Each dress is pure poetry, with unexpected touches and elegant, feminine details, all impeccably executed.”


Exercise regularly. 
Weight-lifting counters a slowing metabolism and burns extra calories per day. Cardio will keep your heart healthy and give you more energy. Yoga will improve posture and counter the effects of swayed backs by way of core strengthening. 

Exercise also provides men and women with more radiant skin, which will allow you to appear less tired and run-down. Follow a regimen that combines cardio with weight-training and yoga sessions. 

For example, you can sculpt for 20 minutes, do cardio for 30 minutes and do yoga for 10 minutes -- or vary your workout by day. Invest in a few sessions with a personal trainer at your local gym to obtain a workout that will fit your needs and keep you working out safely.

Eat healthy. 
Foods that are rich in antioxidants combat the effects of aging and help to prevent disease. Antioxidant-rich foods include fruits and vegetables -- like onions, broccoli, apples, red grapes, and berries -- as well as moderate amounts of dark chocolate, red wine and green tea. 

Healthy fats, especially omega-3s, renew skin cells to keep them looking young and moist. Walnuts and salmon are rich in omega-3 fats, as are eggs, cereal, yogurt, and cheeses and milk that are fortified with DHA -- a type of omega-3. 

Cut out greasy, fatty foods, which can lead to health problems and trigger obesity, and stop excessive drinking and smoking -- both have been proven to increase the risks of cancer and disease, and they intensify the effects of aging.

There are many ways to lose a lot of weight fast. However, most of them will make you hungry and unsatisfied. If you are not patient enough then hunger will cause you to give up on these plans quickly. You need to go for a plan that will help you reduce your appetite significantly, make you lose weight quickly, without hunger and improve your metabolic health at the same time.
Cut Back on Sugars and Starches
The most important part is to cut back on sugars and starches (carbs). These are the foods that stimulate secretion of insulin the most. If you didn’t know already, insulin is the main fat storage hormone in the body. When insulin goes down, fat has an easier time getting out of the fat stores and the body starts burning fats instead of carbs. 
Another benefit of lowering insulin is that your kidneys shed excess sodium and water out of your body, which reduces bloat and unnecessary water weight. It is not uncommon to lose up to 10 pounds (sometimes more) in the first week of eating this way; both body fat and water weight.
Eat Protein, Fat and Vegetables
Each one of your meals should include a protein source, a fat source and low-carb vegetables. Constructing your meals in this way will automatically bring your carb intake into the recommended range of 20-50 grams per day. Protein Sources: Meat – Beef, chicken, pork, lamb, bacon, etc., Fish and Seafood – Salmon, trout, shrimps, lobsters, etc. Eggs – Omega-3 enriched or pastured eggs are best. High protein diets can also reduce obsessive thoughts about food by 60%, reduce desire for late-night snacking by half, and make you so full that you automatically eat 441 fewer calories per day, just by adding protein to your diet. Low-Carb Vegetables: Broccoli, Cauliflower, Spinach, Brussels sprouts, Cabbage, Swiss chard, Lettuce, Cucumber, Celery
Don’t be afraid to load your plate with these low-carb vegetables. You can eat massive amounts of them without going over 20-50 net carbs per day. A diet based on meat and vegetables contains all the fiber, vitamins and minerals you need to be healthy. There is no physiological need for grains in the diet. Fat Sources: Olive oil, Coconut oil, Avocado oil, Butter, Tallow
Eat 2-3 meals per day. If you find yourself hungry in the afternoon, add a 4th meal. Don’t be afraid of eating fat, trying to do both low-carb AND low-fat at the same time is a recipe for failure. It will make you feel miserable and abandon the plan.
Lift Weights 3 Times per Week
You don’t need to exercise to lose weight on this plan, but it is recommended. The best option is to go to the gym 3-4 times a week. Do a warm up, lift weights, then stretch. 
By lifting weights, you will burn a few calories and prevent your metabolism from slowing down, which is a common side effect of losing weight. If lifting weights is not an option for you, then doing some easier cardio workouts like running, jogging, swimming or walking will suffice.
