daily style: the eternal showdown...

|
By Roberta Correia · August 18, 2010

Ok, ok, yet another long absence, yet another long list of excuses, none of which I'll bore you with. Instead, I'll just offer you a showdown of epic proportions to make amends. A fashion face-off between Angelina and Jen is like the eternal struggle between good and evil, Darth Vader/Luke Skywalker, Jack/Locke, Danny Zuko and that dude he races in Thunder Road, Brenda and Kelly if you will. The former and current Mrs. Pitts both premiered movies on the same day this week. Angie with Salt in London and Jen with The Switch in LALA land. While Saint Angelina went for flowy, ethereal goddess - a very big change for the generally black clad Jolie - in silver Amanda Wakeley; girl next door Jen was showing off her  yoga'd physique in a two toned Lanvin.

Jen plays it nice and safe as per usual, going for universally flattering shapes and neutral tones - not to say the dress isn't lovely, she just looks like usual straight haired Rachel Greene. Like I said, playing it safe, she looks nice but nothing special.

Angie is for once channeling angelic sainthood. Now don't get me wrong, I love dominatrix Angie as much as the next gal, but seeing her looking so mother earth-like is just appropriate isn't it? A few gripes: Unlike Jen's figure hugging number, Angelina's is a big shapeless glittery sack. Not that I don't love that, but i wish it had been better tailored for her figure. Also, and this has been bothering me for months, there's something about that hair which is making me completely nuts - I think it might be how the bangs curl just slightly under, very 1980s, very old ladyish. Then again, where Jen sticks with her modern signature sleek do, Angelina always likes to do something that looks sophisticated, for a 70 year old. Get a straightening iron girl.

What do you guys think? Team Jolie or Team Aniston? Eh, at least Brad has a type - a slightly boring red carpet walker. Sidenote, I really want to see The Switch, well just because I have an eternal love of Michael Blooth.

It's no secret we go totally nuts almost every time Gwyneth Paltrow leaves her house. There's something about the Coldplay loving, haircut inspiring (no really, start counting how many girls you see a day with a long bob who's front is way longer than its back), Shakespeare in Love star that makes us just admire the crap out of her seemingly together perfection. She'll always be the girl in high school that's way too cool and impeccably dressed but who seemed like she just threw on that leather jacket without a care in the world. Sure she's got a tad of pretension to her, but wouldn't you be a little pretentious if your godfather was Steven Spielberg and your best friends were Madonna and Stella McCartney? Anyone? Pretensions aside I'll never forget how much I wanted her Sliding Doors haircut back in the day and her white barely there slip of a Calvin Klein dress at the Oscars with Brad Pitt. Now that was a couple am I right? Sorry Brangeloonies. I digress...

Point is, Gwyneth has been taking her Tracy Anderson toned legs out for a long walk while on her Iron Man 2 promotional tour, and I'm loving every single second of it. Shorts, mini dresses, elegant sheaths, a crazy cool cropped black leather jacket and sophisticated gowns to boot. And all just in the past week. Whether you like GOOP or not (we do), take a look at the looks that had us crowning Gwyneth this week's most stylish star.

PS - She's clearly in NYC and was strangely absent from the MET Gala. Weird.

Thought we were done with the MET ball did you? Well lucky for us some ladies decided to hit the red carpet fashionably late. Giving us yet more fantastical fashions. Enjoy.

daily style: iron man 2 takes over la

By Roberta Correia · April 27, 2010

It's tough to say who was hotter at last night's Iron Man 2 premiere in LA. First contender, the lovely Ms. Goop herself. Gwyneth wore an Armani short suit with a slight golden sheen to it. Only Mrs. Chris Martin, and her Tracy Anderson toned legs, could make this look so incredibly sophisticated. Not the biggest fan of the black booties, wish she kept the whole thing a little lighter.

Second up, the man that can make any movie delightful - Robert Downey Jr. Now I'm not one of those who jumped on the RDJ bandwagon post comeback, I've always hoped that he would take his triumphant place in Hollywood history. I was randomly watching Chances Are last night and he's just so charming it's crazy. Case in point he almost manages to upstage Gwyneth in his head to toe Lanvin look. My favorite parts: the matching tie/sneakers combo and the beyond fabulous flower pin.

See more from the Iron Man 2 premiere after the jump!

Daily Style: In Other News...

By Roberta Correia · September 17, 2009

Fashion Week is over and it's time to get our lives back on track...or so says Susie Miller at Astrology Zone. Wait, first she says that everything is going to be awful and my life will see drama like it never has before, and then that my life will get back on track. Ok sorry, I digress.

So NYFW has come to a tearful end and in order to not let the depression set in we are moving right along with what we've missed this week while we were consumed with dreams of free McCafe at the Tents: The Toronto Film Festival. More specifically, Natalie Portman at the Toronto Film Festival. Ms. Portman was floral Lanvin and Aldo peep toe clad at the premiere of Love and Other Pursuits while visiting our neighbor to the North.

This has to be one of my all time favorite Natalie Portman moments. As much as I love laidback Natalie, she really is at her best when she goes for Audrey Hepburnesque / ballerina glamour.
