Demi Moore just confessed in some magazine or other recently that she was at one point in life obsessed with her body and making it perfect. Well I guess we are all for obsession because damn Demi looked incredible at the premiere of The Joneses last week (yeah sorry a little bit delayed). The woman doesn't age, it's incredilbe. She's beyond stunning and I'm almost 20 years younger than her and my knees look older than hers. Amazing. And the fuschia ruffled Marchesa dress does wonders to bring out her black hair and it's sexy and flirty without over doing it. Making it, dare we say, age appropriate for Mrs. Kutcher? Mean that in the nicest way ever Demi. You look better now than in About Last Night, and you are a classy classy lady.
If there are two things that would make the perfect combination it's Rachel Bilson and Preen.
RBils chose a dress from Preen's fall collection for the NYC premiere of her new movie Waiting for Forever, part of the Gen Art Film Festival (which looks to have been sponsored by Don Julio Tequila so we hope she took advantage of that). As always Rachel is adorableness personified, even if she did sexy it up a bit this time with the bustier dress. Isn't it just oh so 90s? I'd expect like Christy Turlington in something like this circa 1993. And yes that's a GIANT compliment.
She paired the dress with the ubiquitous Brian Atwood Maniac pumps (we don't blame the Hollywoodettes for loving them, they are pretty freaking fantastic) and a dress matching white clutch.
Additional props to Rachel for letting her natural hair shine through, gives the rest of us some inspiration to drop the straightening iron and let our natural curls go crazy.
I'm in such a summery mood that I couldn't help but ooooh and aaaaah over Nicole Richie's warm weather wear. She can always be counted on for the perfect blend of laid back hippie and fashionista. Case in point her Winter Kate collection dress that looks straight out of 1968 but costs like it was made in 2010. And is unfortunately sold out everywhere. A nod to the side braid and bangs (are we back to the bangs or no bangs argument?) that keep the look oh so currently trendy.
Nicole is one of those rare breads that manages to just look comfortable in everything she wears, ok granted this is a long hippie dress and flat sandals but she looks comfy and super styling. Did I just say super styling? Wow. In any case, enjoy the 90 degree weather! And take inspiration from Nicole's laid back cool summer look.
I go back and forth with Chloe Sevigny. There are days when I think she's beyond fantastic, and days when I find her fashion choices way too out there for me. Her Proenza Schouler look at Derek Blasberg's "Classy" book party was somewhere in between. While I love the cuts, lengths and fit etc, the prints are not my cup of tea. I get it, I totally do, it's just not my thing. I've come to the sad realization that i'm just so boring these days, and I can't seem to step away from neutrals. Oops.
In any case I do think Chloe looks great, and yes I do have the ability to appreciate a certain style even if it's not mine. I'm still loving her cropped hair and well socks and open toed heels are always a hit in my book.
yes I'm a bit late to the game on this one... but there was definitely some fashiony things happening at the Kids' Choice Awards over the weekend. Particularly like how casual this event always ends up being - guess everyone assumes they'll be slimed.
ok so should we just go right past the apologies and the excuses and the talk about food poisoning and no sleep and busy-ness and go right to laughing about my very long absence? No? Sorry kids, it's been an interesting couple of weeks and I've disappointed myself by letting you all down. Today we move right past this awkward incident and right to talking about our favorite topic.
So let's get back down to business and start out with a look that positively shocked me. Jennifer Aniston not wearing black! GASP. Ok so we saw Jen in a beige Donna Karan number last week that was outstanding (yeah I know I didn't post it here, oops, my bad) but still going the basic route that Jen's become known for on the red carpet. And then out of nowhere this weekend we get: Ms. Aniston in BRIGHT PINK...and not just any bright pink, an ombre ruffled and bowed Christian Lacroix bright pink. Can we talk about how amazing a little color looks on her? And let's discuss that the hair is not down and pin straight! Ok so a ponytail's not exactly Friends haircut groundbreaking but it's a start. Maybe this is a whole new Jen.
And don't worry I won't be disappearing again ok? Promise. And stay tuned for a little something new coming your way!
You know what it's like when you buy a new dress and it fits so perfectly you want to wear it to every event you have possible for weeks? I definitely suffer from new outfit OCD and clearly so does Anne Hathaway.
The Alice in Wonderland star first wore French label IRO's Vayate dress to a press conference for the film in Hollywood way back in February. And then low and behold, she's in the same dress 2 weeks later on the Ellen Degeneres show. And who can blame her - the dress is the perfect mix of French "je ne sais quoi" and California cool. Expect to hear tons more from IRO, the label was founded by brothers Laurent and Arik Bitton in 2004, has two Parisian boutiques, counts European It chicks Vanessa Paradis, Lou Douillon, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Melanie Laurent as fans and if their company goal - embellishing the urban woman by offering her endless options of simple, yet bold clothing, enabling her to transform from day to night - is any indication, they will swoop Hollywood (and my heart) by storm.
Find out where you can snap up Anne's IRO dress after the jump... more, more, more...
By no means am I implying these dresses are identical. However, something about them just strikes me as eerily similar, especially considering they were worn on the same night.
Anne Hathaway stepped out across the pond in Vivienne Westwood for the highly anticipated world premier of Alice in Wonderland. Anne's Vivienne Westwood had the signature VW neckline, a more brownish color and a lovely draped side. She paired it with ruffled Casadei pumps, Stephen Webster jewels and very red lips. Something about her here screams Julia Roberts to me, but what do I know. I kind of love the sort of messed up hair, who knows if it's the rainy London weather or if that was the hair style's intent. Either way it works for me and gives Anne this sexy grown up thing she's lacked a few times on the red carpet.
It's Only Fashion fave Kristen Bell was feeling the Thursday night sparkles all the way on the other side of the world at the Costume Designer's Guild Awards in LA. Kristen chose a golden glistening Stella McCartney for the occasion, perfectly netted with a nude tule disguising the low cut of the dress. Equally as pretty and sparkly as Anne, but with a California girl spin to it. Don't you think?
Let's face it, London Fashion Week is incredibly hip. Sure NYFW was all sorts of edgy fun, but something about those Brits just screams It Girl with every step.(Maybe it's because they call it Autumn/Winter instead of Fall/Winter, that just sounds cooler). And no one does "it girl" quite like our girl Alexa Chung.
As per usual Alexa was runway-side at some of the coolest collections - including House of Holland, Christopher Kane and Topshop Unique. Our favorite hipster/model/it girl/trendsetter was her usual effortless impossibly chic self, even changing my beliefs on the denim on denim debate. She also wore a star print top that had me running to my local Urban Outfitters for a similar navy and polka dotted blouse I spotted there. And as always Alexa gave props to Ms. Luella Bartley with her Luella cardigan over an adorable white lace dress. All this and we haven't even gotten to the Burberry show yet.
Hopefully more to come from Alexa Chung at LFW AW2010, but if you can't wait for your next Alexa sartorial fix, check out her "Today I'm Wearing" column for Vogue UK, part of the March cover girl's job for the mag.
