One of the many perks of being the face of a high end fashion house is that you never have to wonder, 'What am I going to wear?' Marion Cotillard once again looked ravishing in what I can only guess is a custom Christian Dior creation. When Dior dresses Cotillard they always suprise me a little with their playfulness and edge. I know they can do drama and I know they can do glamour, but lately they have been showcasing some chic whimsy without sacrificing elegance.
This Balmain jumpsuit on Miley Cyrus truly has left me speechless. I am so into jumpsuits right now but for clarification, I am not into circus costumes. I don't even know where to begin with this one. Miley Cyrus rocked the red carpet at the Met Gala and even made my best dressed list. But this look is just so wrong and not in a so-wrong-its-right kind of way.
Jessica Biel wore a a very high fashion, concept dress by Marchesa to the Inside Llewyn Davis premiere at the Cannes Festival over the weekend. My first thought of course was she looks beautiful because Jessica Biel is gorgeous and her fashion sense is in a league of its own. But I don't quite know what to make of this ensemble. There is so much I like and so much that leaves me a bit confused - but I think really good fashion will do that.
The hair, the dress, the makeup, the shoes...amazing. I could not love this look Amanda Seyfried rocked more if I tried. In a sea of black and white this season a little red and black is a welcomed change. Its a classic combination but yet Preen made it look new with a dispersing pattern and a zipper down the front. I also love the contrast of the feminine shape with the edgy details.
How fantastic does Anna Faris look after just giving birth to new baby Jack in February? Seriously, what is the magic secret in Hollywood? I just don't get it. I understand it's part of their job to return to their post baby fabulousness, but lately these actresses and models seem to be pulling a rabbit out of a hat. It's been just three months since Faris gave birth and to me, she looks better than ever.
Come rain or come shine, Carey Mulligan was not going to let a little bad weather ruin her night out at the Cannes Film Festival. Mullian was dressed to the nines in Christian Dior to celebrate the premiere of her new film The Great Gatsby. I am so thrilled to see how glamorous she looks because I was honestly a bit disappointed by her New York film premiere look. It didn't have enough oomph. But this dress definitely has oomph and more!
Lea Lea Lea. You burst on the scene a few years ago as a fashion force to be reckoned with. Appearance after appearance you knocked it out of the park. And I have to say I have been really into the more relaxed, effortless but still chic look you've been wearing lately, this feminine Lela Rose dress included. But Lea, please, I beg you: stay away from the self tanner!
WWD decided that since Catherine Duchess of Cambridge's bump is finally showing, she must have the best custom maternity clothes. What would they look like? Luckily they thought of that too by asking 13 a handful of designers to sketch up maternity options for Kate, creating a fantasy of maternity options.
Again, Olivia Palermo never ceases to wow me with her sense of style. Palermo was in Madrid to present the new Pikolinos collection, designed and hand-beaded by female members of the Maasai tribe in Kenya. I love how she wore her pair from the collection with an outfit she could also where with pumps or strappy high sandals.
I am really into this acqua slash Tiffany blue color right now. It is so fresh and a little unexpected and screams Spring to me. And no one does fresh and unexpected better than Sienna Miller. And Sienna Miller in Matthew Williamson? Perfect combination!
Kate Spade's brand new Madison Avenue flagship store open and spans 7,900 square feet over four stories. Inside you will find everything from accessories, ready-to-wear, home goods, and lots of shoes. Fan or not, you can't help but stop in because it's so cheery and coloful. Once inside, it's a pretty sure bet you'll be happy you did!
I feel like Michael Kors on Project Runway when I say, I just want to take a pair of scissors and cut that tail off Victoria Justice's dress!! I like the whole high/low hemline but on the right thing. I personally think it works far better on a more flowing fabric and on a maxi length. This is way too severe of a difference in the lengths and makes it look like Guess couldn't decide. My advice? Cut off the tail!
Lake Bell is like a perfect canvas for just about anything. She's tall and beautiful with a killer figure. Why she is not on the cover of every magazine from Self to Vogue is beyond me. But that's a topic for another time. Let's just say, if I could wake up and have anyone's body, it would probably be Lake Bell's. Bell looked as effortlessly beautiful as ever at the LA premiere of Black Rock this week wearing a gold lace dress by Lyn Devon. I love this look but there are just a few styling tweaks I would like to suggest.
Sometimes I forget that Kate Bosworth is an actress. Not because she isn't talented or doesn't work or is on the news all the time for questionable behavior. It's because she is just so beautiful and perfectly dressed at all times that I mistake her for a model or an Olivia Palermo type, who's job is to be stylish and fashion forward so that others can see how it's done. Maybe Palermo and Bosworth and Diane Kruger can join forces and become like fashion's Charlie's Angels and save women from making tragic fashion mistakes. Too much? Fine, maybe in my dream world.
Once again I am in awe of any celeb that manages to create a great ensemble while battling security lines and shlepping luggage. Today's airport fashionista is the beautiful Kate Beckinsale. I am not lying when I say I never look this put together when traveling. I always think I have put together the perfect comfy yet not sloppy but still effortless look and I still manage to look so blah. Plus, when I get off a plane, forget it, I look tired and bloated but dry at the same time.
Guys, I cannot believe I forgot to include Allison Williams in my best dressed of the Met Gala yesterday. Do you think one of my biggest fashion crushes of the moment will forgive me? And look at her, she killed it! I am so happy to see she rose to the occasion and rocked it out punk style in a black Altuzarra gown. Williams, still new to the scene, could have played it safe and gone with just a pretty dress with hint of punk. But no, girlfriend went all out fashion punk
All hail SJP! I so I wish I was there last night just so I could see her get out of her car or limo or chariot and walk the carpet. I mean, who thinks giant Philip Traecy hat when they think punk? Obviously, SJP does! But you know what, I loved every single inch of her ensemble.
Last night was the annual Met Gala celebrating the Costume Institute. This year's theme was Punk: Chaos To Couture. The stars did not disappoint in the fashion department. Some went all out punk (did you see Madonna?) confusing the event with a Halloween party, while others played it too safe.
Eva Longoria is Dorothy and her whole world has gone from black and white to brilliant technicolor. I am in love with the bright flowered back drop Ferragmo used as their step-and-repeat for their celebration of the iconic Vara heel. Everything about it is fresh, young, and whimsical, which are not words I would usually use to describe Ferragamo. The Italian luxury brand has been making a strong push to bring a younger clientele to there classic shoes, and I think they are on the right track.
Run, don't walk to the Prada store in Soho to see The Great Gatsby costumes. The beautiful dresses, jewels, shoes and more will be on display through May 12th, right after the film opens on May 10th. Check out some of the costumes in the gallery below.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana celebrated the opening of the new Dolce & Gabbana boutique on 5th Avenue with a cocktail reception hosted by Giovanna Battaglia. Scroll down for photos from the event, featuring Gisele Bundchen, Emilia Clarke and more!
I know I just featured Zoe Saldana as my Fashion Photo but, come on, have you seen this picture?! She has once again pushed all fashion boundaries to a new place of awesome. I don't know how she does it, or how her stylist does it. They have set their own bar so high I don't know how her co-stars feel standing next to her. I would stress not only about my own outfit but about how my outfit would stack up next to Saldana. I am officially fashion-struck.
I definitely have Gatsby fever! I cannot wait to see this film if just for the fashion and jewels alone. But I have to say, I was expecting some major fashion at last night's premiere and was a bit disappointed. Very little sparkle and not as much oomph as I would have liked. Unlike some of her co-stars, Isla Fisher, did glam it up and I for one am thrilled!
Today's Fashion Photo is not a typical one, but I just couldn't resist. We have all been watching as Catherine Duchess of Cambridge gracefully navigates her pregnancy and growing baby bump. Her fashion choices have been flawless and as I said last week, she's really making this whole thing look easy. Contemporary artist Alison Jackson has also taken notice and has taken matters into her own hands so to speak to help us imagine what the Duchess would wear for her own baby shower.
Zoe Saldana is always one to watch at events and on the red carpet. She never fails to keeps things fresh, new and interesting. I would describe her style aesthetic as awesome, eclectic and fashion forward. Saldana chose a Calvin Klein collection skirt and top for her Star Trek: Into Darkness photocall in Berlin. It was a perfect choice for the edgy city of Berlin.
British fashionista and host of NBC's Fashion Star, Louise Roe, has designed another collection for the Stylist Pick. This latest collection is set to be one of her best and was inpsired by other major fashionistas like like Bianca Jagger and Miranda Kerr.
I love this Prada dress that Claire Danes wore over the weekend to the White House Correspondents Dinner. Leave it to Prada to create a clean and simple dress that is also glamorous, sexy and has a touch of whimsy. I am just loving it everything about it, especially the color and the daring open sides.
Our favorite sister, Pippa Middleton, was photographed out and about in London looking ravishing as ever. It must be an odd thing - being photographed for being the pretty sister of the newest member of the royal family. But never the less, she takes it all in stride and never disappoints when it comes to fashion.
Naomi Campbell is giving it on the May cover of Vogue Brazil. The fierce model is styled in a black cross-strap one-piece with cut-outs and sporting bleach blonde hair blowing behind her. It's tough to make a summer cover look edgy but leave it to Ms. Campbell to not only succeed, but nail it!
It's been quite a while since we've seen yellow, I've actually missed it. So I was so thrilled to see this bright and sunny dress on the always beautiful Olivia Munn. With the help of Michael Kors, she is making yellow chic, feminine and oh so cool.
Footwear genius Brian Atwood just debuted a bridal line! His collection is definitely aimed at the more glam bride who wants some sparkle and height and va-va-va voom for their wedding. But man, are they gorgeous!
People Magazine's 'Most Beautiful Woman' is having no trouble living up to her title. Gwyneth Paltrow hit the red carpet in style for premiere of her new film Iron Man 3. The always beautiful actress wore a very different and intriguing Antonio Berardi dress.
Yesterday I featured Catherine Duchess of Cambridge as my Fashion Photo of the Day because she has been making pregancy fashion look effortless. Another mom-to-be, due in July, has not had such an easy go of it, but lately, I think Kim K has turned over a new leaf. Last week, Kim showed off her growing bump in a gorgeous, red lace dress. I loved everything about that look and this week, she turned heads again at E! Network's Upfront in New York City.
The Royal Baby Bump Watch marches on! Is it just me or is she making it look way too easy to look stylish and cute during pregnancy? The Duchess is a study in how to effortlessly dress a growing baby bump. I don't think she's missed a beat yet. At every public appearance she has looked more beautiful than the one before. We all know she has an impeccable sense of style with a flair for classic elegance, but it's almost laughable how amazing she looks.
