Move Over Kate Middleton: Jennifer Lopez Turns Temperley's Gold Sequin Jacket into a Ghetto Fabulous Gem

Temperley London's Autumn Winter 2012 show

Watching Temperley's show during London Fashion Week in February, every one of us Graziettes was dreaming of being a princess. We gasped as navy silk gowns with opulent jewelled straps and floor-sweeping cream lace robes glided down the catwalk for the Autumn Winter 2012 collection fittingly entitled Renaissance. So although the bulging fur hats were a tad too Russian spy for a young royal, it was hard not to imagine the Duchess of Cambridge swathed in one of the sumptuous creations, choosing an elegant pencil skirts with lace ankle boots for a public outing perhaps. Kate has, after all, worn the British designer's pieces on several occassions and let's not forget her sister Pippa caused a stampede when she FROW'ed at Temperley's Spring Summer 2012 show.

So we admit to being somewhat surprised that rather than a Middleton being the first to step out in one of the AW12 creations, it was Jennifer Lopez. She was spotted at the American Idol studio last night rocking a gold sequin cropped jacket hot off the the British designer's catwalk, but rather than channelling the regal vibe, J-Lo stayed true to her signature ghetto fabulous style. Hats off to that! Not only did she pair the jacket with a pair of matching harem pants, she blinged it up with gold Jimmy Choo ‘Leila’ sandals and chunky Pomellato jewels, topped off by lashings of honey-toned extensions.

Of course, the songstress is a bona fide pop princess so if anyone can transform Temperley's fairytale pieces into decadent urban wear, it's Jenny from the block. Commenters, however, have compared the look to a 'tacky '80s flashback'. Yikes! So let's hear your verdict on Jennifer's golden girl look...

    2015 Nissan Murano aims for the style-forward crowd

    Nissan says its 2015 Murano crossover, only the second major revamp of the car since it debuted in 2003, draws its design cues from the “age of future space flight.” That’s probably taking it a little far, but the new Murano, based off the 2013 Resonance concept vehicle, is an exceptionally lovely machine, all fluid, curved metal on the outside, and flowing, soft-touch materials on the inside. Certain kinds of comfort and charms that were unheard-of outside of premium vehicles five years ago have definitely trickled down, and reached a kind of design apotheosis with this car.

    Volkswagen brings new (ish) Jetta to New York along with Golf Sportwagen

    With its new President and CEO of America, Michael Horn, on stage in New York after just 100 days on the job, Volkswagen debuted its 2015 Jetta. You'd be forgiven for noticing little differences compared to the outgoing model, and in the words of Horn himself, the changes are indeed subtle. The most notable of those subtleties is the all-new 2.0 liter turbo diesel motor, offering 45 mpg highway and a modest increase of 10 hp. For VW, diesel is where it's at.

    With Vantage GT, Aston Martin races below $100,000

    Aston Martin is going downmarket, sort of. The 2015 Vantage GT, a sport-styled variant of Aston’s legendary flagship car, draws style and performance tips from their GT4 race cars, which will be running in North America this year. It’s also priced at $99,900, which shows that the market for these kinds of consumer sports cars has boomed in recent years.

    Over 280 missing after South Korean ferry capsizes

    By Narae Kim JINDO South Korea (Reuters) - More than 280 people, many of them students from the same high school, were missing after a ferry capsized off South Korea on Wednesday, in what could be the country's biggest maritime disaster in over 20 years. It was not immediately clear why the Sewol ferry listed heavily on to its side and capsized in apparently calm conditions off South Korea's southwest coast, but some survivors spoke of a loud noise prior to the disaster.
