Slim Pickings at SAG Awards

Jane Krakowski in Antonio Berardi

Rose Byrne in Elie Saab

I love Rose Byrne and think that 9 times out of 10 she nails it.  This jumpsuit is soooo close, but sadly no cigar.  It looks great up top and hits the floor at the perfect length, but the middle section is just too droopy, and doesn’t do her lovely figure justice.

Michelle Williams looks absolutely stunning in this Valentino, only wish she rethought her choice of shoes.

Some cute looks from Paris

So just as Fall Fashion Week is quickly approaching, the couture labels have been showing their latest masterpieces.  Some lovely ladies who are privileged enough to attend such fancy events have showed up in some super cute getups.

Catherine Baba

Diane Kruger

Kruger is one of my favorites and this look is super cute, though I can’t help but feel something is maybe a bit off?  Perhaps more skin is needed to balance out the look.  I think the only thing I’d change is swap the over the knee stockings for ankle socks.  But it doesn’t bother me that much, she still owns it.

Abbie Cornish at Louis Vuitton

This LV dress is a chic combination of super sweet and bad ass, and I bet in person it’s a real peace of art.  I don’t however think Cornish is completely getting away with it.  The dress is wearing her more than she is wearing it and I sort of feel the need to help her rethink the styling of it; starting by getting rid of the ribbon and adding a bold belt.  It’s a shame though, I’d love to see this dress on the likes of someone like Kirsten Dunst or maybe the adorable Elle Fanning.

Hailee Steinfeld

Hailee Steinfeld in Miu Miu

This girl is really something and I foresee an exceptionally noteworthy  style  in her years to come.  She kills it as the face of Miu Miu and always pleases me.   I feel that she deserves extra props for her styling decisions because she’s only 15 and has thus far managed to always look age appropriate, yet total fashion plate.  I look forward to see more of this young lady.

Olivia Wilde

Olivia Wilde in Oscar de la Renta

There’s no denying this dress is a beauty.  I really wish she went with different shoes, because these weird black ones really hurt the whole look.  My first choice would be patent leather beige kitten heels.  The dress is the main event here, let’s not weigh it down with jelly looking things one might wear to the beach.

So cute I don’t know what to do with myself!

Cara Delevigne covers Jalouse

The February issue of French Magazine Jalouse is totally having me girl crush on beauty Cara Delevigne.  From the made up freckles and messy capped hair, to the deer in headlights look, down to the Donald Duck undies, the beauty is altogether precious in this shot.  Jalouse magazine definitely knows what they’re doing.

First Style

Malia Obama in Lauren Moffatt

Yet another reason to love our first family, great style!  The whole clan looks nice, but I’m gonna have to say older sister Malia was the scene stealer on this family outing!  She simply rocks the Lauren Moffatt coat.

The Lovely Bridget Bardot

Here’s for a trend that has the ability to represent itself in ways good, bad, and sometimes plain ugly.  Unless done in a more understated manner, I’m pretty leopard printed out for the time being.  The trend made a major comeback a few seasons ago and has been spotted what seems like everywhere (pun intended)!  So here’s a shout out to some well dressed cat women!

Clowning Around

It’s nice to see designers having a good time with fashion.  Often I find the industry can take the subject far too seriously, and in trying times, it’s relieving to bring a since of humor to the table.  And though there’s frequently the conception that clowns are scary, (which I do not disagree with one bit!) that added quality only makes it all the more intriguing.

Marni, Pre-Fall

From the heavily blue eye-shadowed sparkly lady at Louis Vuitton, to Stella McCartney’s bold and playful prints, to Marni’s crafty take, to Roksanda Ilincic’s Ronald McDonald inspired getup, designers are certainly upping the silliness factor, but in a way that works for the modern woman.  I’m hoping once Fall Fashion week comes, (just two weeks away!) we see lots more of this clownish trend!
