Of all the awards season fashions and street trends we saw this week, AnnaLynne McCord sporting her LANY Let’s Make it Brief backpack in black ($60) and Zombie Beach YOLOHA Snapback cap ($25;) on Instagram, wowed us most for its totally put together, sporty chic and colorful style. We’re loving the price points too!

Lately we’ve been all about the guys in the fashion genre. So when Fratelli Rossetti sent over this men’s Valentine’s Day sensation, we imagined a jealous Dorothy in a desperate attempt at online shopping via a makeshift Tin Man hotspot, in order to nab a pair. Walking the yellow brick road all the way to the Emerald City in heels had to hurt just a little. Motivation to get the Wicked Witch’s broom! But alas, these are for Guys Only. We can drool.
Shine this Valentine’s Day with the new limited edition Fratelli Rossetti Dandy, the derby shoe without laces. $610
Un certo mondo cammina Rossetti.
“It is a very, very foolish thing for a man not to be well dressed” -Lord Chesterton.
What would a new year be without a a style review? Roger Stone gives us his not always so cheeky but fairly spot of review of the celebs we love, hate and almost forgot about except for their fabulous moments and terrible faux pas.
By Roger Stone
It is that time of year when those of us who paid attention to such things recall the tradition of the late Hollywood designer Mr. Blackwell – who, for nearly 50 years, released an eagerly anticipated annual list that began as a chronicle of the world’s best and worst dressed people. The flamboyant, media-savvy Blackwell spared no one — celebrities, movie stars, athletes, socialites and captains of industry were all under his microscope.
Since Blackwell’s death in 2008, we here at the Stone On Style have proudly picked up the torch, continuing this New Year’s tradition, but in its original “Best/Worst” format. It is a proud pursuit, and inasmuch as it truly is a labor of love, it is also an increasingly difficult endeavor, as the state of dress for the public-at-large continues to slide.
We vigilantly monitor the world of media, entertainment, sports, politics, academia, art and fashion to determine who has style… and who truly doesn’t. As an aside, we do recognize that we write this at a time where more gain notoriety for undressing, rather than dressing. The number of naked selfies from actresses and models that have “leaked” drive millions to view the latest celebrity nude.
FULL LIST OF BEST & WORST DRESSED
Of all the things I could possibly write about 2014…that it’s been Gia On The Move’s best year yet…that we’ve been so fortunate to have experienced so much gorgeous, avant-garde, unique, delicious artistry in live performance, art, music, movies, food, fashion and more…what an awesome adventure it’s been…that we love all of the great friends we’ve made along the way, and how incredibly lucky to often accidentally have stumbled across gems that no one else was noticing… What we’re most happy to say is ‘Thank you’. Thank you for letting us entertain, inform, introduce and offer a little bit of our passions to YOU. What a ride! Ready for more? ~Gia
Happy New Year!!!

Let me introduce you to the budding premium fashion accessory line of Mr. Kito Flex
Growing up in Houston, TX, 26 year-old Kito Flex always had big dreams of being successful and always had a love for fashion, especially unique accessories that assisted in making his outfits stand out from the crowd. Kito had the artistic idea to create a men’s accessory line (must be the dog…lol…kidding) that would reflect his unique style while staying true to his Houston roots. In early 2013, the Kito Flex Collection was born.
Gia On The Move: “This dude is “killin’ it”! And we love the inspirational message on the back of his labels. Check out what he recently wrote to his Instagram followers:
.“You guys probably never noticed this but, I do have an inspirational message on the back of all my products! Romans 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. #HappySunday Be blessed “
Bringing awareness of Houston culture to the forefront and cultivating design filled with inspirational art and creativity the line currently includes four premium sock patterns:
- “Baby Bottles”,
- the vicious red “Bomb” socks,
- the swangin’ “SLAB” socks (Slow, Loud, and Bangin aka a fully customized car)
- and the most popular socks shrouded in “Lean Cups” filled with purple drank, inspired by the music of DJ Screw, UGK, Slim Thug and other Houston legends.
“It’s a brand that represents, and is influenced by, a Houston culture…a society that the whole world is slowly trending on. I’ve taken ordinary accessories and just added my creative twist to it and hope everyone else enjoys the art. I believe, no matter race or gender, my brand has something to offer to all individuals.” – Kito Flex
The popularity of the Kito Flex Collection is spreading like wild fire and currently you can spot Houstonians all over rocking these socks. We love the line at Gia On The Move because it’s just plain fun and sexy. Plus we’re huge advocates of edgy entrepreneurs on the pulse! …and Gia will be rockin’ her own pair(s) very shortly. :)
