Miguel and his girlfriend Nazanin Mandi attended the 2013 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena yesterday in Las Vegas. Miguel wore a beautiful tuxedo jacket with contrasting silk/satin lapels from Saint Laurent, over a leopard print shirt also by the same label. He also wore slim fitted Levi's jeans and glitter boots from Saint Laurent. Very cool shades and a customised Sacred Heart necklace completed his look. Nazanin Mandi wore a Saint Laurent leather skirt and silver heels from the same label, with a custom top. 

I think it's safe to say the couple loves Saint Laurent, but they are not the only ones. They joined a recent wave of celebrities who love the debut collection from Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent. When the Spring Summer 2013 collection first showed, the reaction were pretty mixed. I guess the proof of the pudding is in the eating. The representation on the red carpets and increase in sales figures (up 19% in revenue as compared to last year) say it all.

Miguel ditched the (almost) all black outfit on the red carpet, for an (almost) all white outfit for his performance at the awards ceremony. Miguel wore a very sleek cream/white Saint Laurent jacket with contrasting black leather lapels, over a white shirt from Mugler. Matching white Levi's jeans completed the look. Which look do you prefer: the red carpet or the performance? I prefer the latter.

  1. i don't think it's the clothes that are soo soo popular. at least not the runway stuff.

    and tons of celebrities wearing SLP means to me that their PR people are working over time to get those clothes to be seen...

    1. it's very wearable though. the styling on the runway is made to provoke conversation, i find it refreshing to see it in real life and styled differently on celebs.

  2. I like his sunnies, anyone able to tell me what they are?


what's he wearing?
