oscar hits and misses

24 Feb

no one actually watches the oscars for the awards, do they? if you’re like me, you live for the red carpet and fast forward through most or all of the awards ceremony 🙂 here are my takes on the fashion hits and misses of the biggest night in showbiz…

best dressed couple for me was a tie between brangelina and mr. and mrs. klum! i know, i know, kinda not fair since both couples could wear potato sacks and still look flawless..

best dressed leading ladies…natalie portman and alicia keys (both pretty in pink!) and penelope cruz (in vintage pierre balmain):

biggest surprises of the night came through actresses amy adams and frieda pinto. i absolutely loved amy’s necklace by fred leighton – it perfectly accented her dress and brought out her gorgeous eyes! and although neither starlet went home with an oscar, frieda shined in her dress by john galliano, making me want to see ‘slumdog millionaire’ even more.

do you all agree with me? who were your oscar hits and misses??

style icon of the week

31 May

…goes to the Other Boleyn Girl, Natalie Portman!

Not only is this petite star talented and intelligent (Harvard alum, what?), she’s got plenty of style to boot. She seems to pull off conservative, simple styles effortlessly and has been coined the Audrey Hepburn of our time. 

Not to mention how absolutely obsessed I am with the purple Lanvin she wore in Cannes!! Kudos to Ms. Portman 🙂 

star looks for less

29 May

hellew, fashionistas and fashionistos! for my update this week, i thought i’d offer up some chic spring looks, straight from the stars! now, you might be asking yourself “how the afdl;j#%sg; do you expect me to afford these?” well, problem solved – i’ve found some similarly haute outfits for much, much less than these stars paid for them! enjoy 🙂
