daily style: one shoulder vs. another...

|
By Roberta Correia · January 12, 2011

This post was put on a little hiatus due to a severe case of indecisiveness. See, I just couldn't wrap my head around how I felt about Nicole's velvety Emilio Pucci one armed dress (by the way that made me say One Eyed Willy in my head).

Harlow's mom chose a very Bohemian intricately printed purple velvet dress to celebrate her Lucky Mag cover in LA this week. Now as much as velvet and I hate each other I had a hard time dismissing this look completely. I started thinking that this was the type of thing hippie and mod chicks from the 60s would have worn. If she had clicked in some super straight long extensions with some Jane Birkin-esque bangs, I would've had no doubt about it. But the short wavy hair was a little too common place for such an interesting dress. For now I'm voting "like" but who knows where my head will be at the end of the day, I'll let you know if I suddenly switch gears.

More one shouldered fantasticness after the jump! more, more, more...

Another day, another Armageddon style snow storm headed our way. Which means we can forget about looking anywhere near remotely cute for the next couple of days.

See how Rachel Bilson managed to juggle cuteness, comfort and style after the jump.

Holy red carpet batman!! Is it me or has the red carpet been extremely, um, red, lately? Seems some of our favorite fashionistas are trading the LBD for the LRD. Dare I say it? Red is the new black?...

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.

 

weekly style: a week's worth of kate bosworth cool...

Is there a better most fabulously cool and stylish starlet to take a cue from this summer than Kate Bosworth? Kate's had quite the fashionable couple of weeks and some of her looks are down right covetable and actually quite easy to knock off... Let this serve as our week's worth of style inspiration - at least 5 perfect outfits to get you through your weekly fashion needs!

it's a walk off, it's a walk off... kate bosworth vs...ME in topshop...

Imagine my shock and awe when I came across this pic of the lovely Kate Bosworth walking around NYC last week. Not only have I been way too obsessed with the oversized "boyfriend" button down trend lately and was happy to see I'm not the only one, but Kate's wearing the EXACT same shirt I had worn a week earlier in an attempt to perfect this trend for a dinner out with my most favorite ex co-workers. Somehow I managed to wear the same item as one of the undeniably best dressed celebs out there even before she wore it!

Let's just start off by acknowledging the cool factor of our (mine and Kate's obv) mutual Topshop shirt.

Needless to say I didn't come anywhere near close to Kate's chicness with this look. First off her blonde hair did more for the taupe color than my very dark curly hair. Second of all she paired it with skinny jeans which kept it lighter, while I paired it with black skinny pants and a fair isle sweater (it was one of those unexpectedly cold days we've had in NYC lately).

First Camilla Belle, now this. My celebrity dressing 6th sense is really on a roll.

Get mine and Kate's look after the jump. more, more, more...

i love the smell of fashion in the mid afternoon...

time to play a bit of catch up on the week. yeah i know i know...

it's a walk off, it's a walk off...camilla belle vs. ME!

Imagine my happiness and awe when upon searching the internet for the latest in celebrity Coachella fashions, I found this picture of Camilla Belle. The happiness comes in the form of "um, she totally knocked off my look" and the awe goes something like this "what? I JUST bought that same dress a week ago!".

I happened to wear this exact floral Zara dress yesterday to a friend's birthday. And yes, I also wore it last weekend to another friend's going away party. It currently falls under the "I love my new dress I want to wear it all the time" category. And rightfully so, look how cute it looks on Camilla. It's a great dress to transition from winter to spring - it's long enough, the floral print is springy but not too flashy or bright and it's just got that 70s hippie feel that makes you want to layer and wear a big floppy hat.

While my fellow Brazilian Camilla paired the dress with chunky boots and a little crochet sweater, mine was with dark grey tights, wooden wedges and a very thin long cardigan. Have to say I like hers way better. Who knew Camilla and I shared a similar taste in moderately priced floral dresses?

so much fashion so little time...

Daily Style: Rachel Bilson...

|
By Roberta Correia · April 11, 2010

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.
