Glee-ful and Glam

I am loving Lea Michele's red carpet looks at recent events and she hit it out of the park at The Grammy's tonight... This is one of my favorite looks tonight, her rich navy one shoulder dress is perfection with that amazing feather skirt and the hair and makeup are flawless and classic!!

Gaga For The Lady

Lady Gaga on the red carpet today at The Grammy Awards, only she can pull off this space age glam look!! Check out the sky high platform shoes too... Her opening performance with Sir Elton John was so totally amazing, I love her!!

Sundance Style

Here are some of my favorite celebrity looks from The Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah... I always love to see how the celebrities stay warm while still looking amazingly winter chic!! Jessica Alba's coat is amazing, but I'm not sure I could pull her look off ;) And Dakota Fanning is sooo adorable, her style reminds me of Hilary Duff with lots of light layers and a yummy scarf!!

Flirty Floral

I found this adorable dress at Old Navy on sale for $25 yesterday!! It is fully lined and perfectly fitted at the waist with a side zipper and my favorite feature is the pockets... I would have bought the navy and white floral one as well if they had my size in stock, but the yellow floral was my first choice anyways... I also had a 20% off coupon so it was only about $20 total!! I think I will wear it with tights and boots until the weather warms up and I have a great thick brown leather belt that will be perfect with it...

Top Bun

Trend alert! This look has been popping up all over the runways and in some of my favorite magazines (pictured is a model from Marc Jacobs 2010 Spring show) and I must say I love it!! The classic chignon is moving from the nape of the neck to the top of the crown pulled up neatly but not slicked down... I feel like a ballerina with this hairdo and an added bonus is how easy and quick it is to create this look if you have at least shoulder length hair... I feel inspired and another step closer to spring...

Color Me Spring

These are the 2010 Spring colors from Pantone, and with my favorite season just around the corner (9 weeks and counting) it is a lovely thought to think about flirty dresses and lightweight layers!! I love this color palette, it has just the right amount of warm neutrals to cool brights (I adore anything turquoise) and I can see myself in all of these colors in different textures and styles... It would be nice to incorporate some of these colors into my winter wardrobe to brighten up the winter blahs!!

I Heart Twiggy

I just came across this photo of Twiggy from the 1960's, I am sure when she was discovered at 16 that she never imagined she would become a fashion icon... I love her look from the sweet pixie haircut to the huge false top and bottom lashes, she completely changed fashion industry standards with her "boyish" look just a tiny little thing she was only 90 pounds when she started modelling... I love her wide eyed innocence in this picture, I wonder if I could get away with false lashes like hers!!

Cool Travellers

These are some recent pics of celebrities at the airport, I love to see what they wear off of the red carpet in their everyday lives... These looks always inspire my everyday outfits and here are a few of my favorite cold weather ensembles! I love Michelle's scarf and riding boots and Diane's chic gray peacoat and I absolutely adore Jessica's all black ensemble especially her patent leather oversize quilted bag... And her leopard platforms may not be practical but they sure are drool worthy!!

Darling Drew

I completely forgot to mention how much I loved Drew Barrymore's entire look from head to toe at The Golden Globes on Sunday, she was complete old hollywood glamour... I thought her hair and makeup were subtle and done to perfection and her Atelier Versace gown was so stunning I can only imagine what it looked like in person... I'm sure she was sparkling down the red carpet... I was also thrilled that Drew won the golden globe for her performance in Grey Gardens, she completely deserved it and was incredible in the HBO film!

Eye Candy

Ok so this is a completely gratuitous post, but is there a man more beautiful than Johnny Depp? Does this man age? Ever? Johnny is a brilliant actor and although a very private person from what he reveals we know he adores his wife and children... His movies are always fantastic and he dives into his characters full force, some of my favorites are Donnie Brasco and Edward Scissorhands to name a few... I love his style and really only he can make a plaid shirt and greasy hair completely sexy... I may just have to pick up the latest copy of GQ :) Will you?

Golden Night

Wow, is there anyone to put on the worst dressed list last night ... I was so impressed the women were knocking it out of the park with full on glamour on The Golden Globes red carpet, there are so many amazing looks to choose from I can hardly narrow it down to just a few ... I really loved Sandra Bullock she looked radiant in her purple strapless gown and Olivia Wilde was stunning in her low cut sleek metallic frock ... I love award season, the eye candy is endless!! Who is on your best dressed list from last night?

Bride Inspired

As I start to book my spring and summer weddings I am constantly looking for inspiration on the runways and red carpets for my beautiful brides... I came across these beautiful ladies today and I absolutely love the elegant and romantic hair and makeup they both have, the loosely pined back curls and the flawless skin they both have is totally breathtaking... I adore the pink matte lip and slightly dramatic eye with black liquid liner and false lashes, this is glamorous makeup without it looking heavy or tacky!!

Buckle Up

I see a trip to F21 in my very near future... I was perusing the website earlier and came across these gorgeous belts and with prices ranging from $6.80 to $12.90 how can I not pick up a couple or three... A belt is such an easy way to jazz up your little black dress or to give your oversize cardigan a waistline!! I think the bigger the better and I am loving the studded and animal print belts that have been showing up all over the runways and now are available at places like F21 and H&M, pick up a basic black waist belt and a funky color or print one to mix and match with... Fasten your belts gals, its going to be a stylish ride!!

Basic Black

Yes, I know I recently posted a Cameron Diaz all black ensemble and I keep seeing this trend popping up everywhere so I thought I would talk about it a little more!! Sooo who better to style stalk than Ashlee Simpson, she has been photographed all over New York looking fashionable and chic dressed in black head to toe, day and night... I really like her dark hair as well although I am partial to the red hair she was sporting a few months ago!! What do you think about this monochromatic look, would you wear all black or is it too goth? I think it is a classic look and I love the tailored pieces Ashlee has been wearing, I just might try it out to my next girl's dinner night this weekend, I am feeling inspired :)

Weekend Style

These are two of my favorite looks of the week!! Hilary does layering to perfection and her biker boots are drool worthy, this is the perfect Saturday afternoon running errands outfit... Jessica is sporting her usual street chic style, I love the menswear inspired looks she has been wearing lately and check out her oxford shoes (they are a must have!)... Both these ladies look fashionable and comfortable at the same time and they are both wearing my favorite accessory of all, a great scarf!!

Red Carpet Winner

Wow, Michele Lea looked red hot on the red carpet at The People's Choice Awards last night... Her crimson dress and matching lips looked stunning, this is a perfect look for a young up and coming startlet like Michele, she totally hits the mark with this sexy yet classic look... On a side note I absolutely love her show Glee and she is so amazingly talented on it, I hope to see much more Michele in 2010!!

Olivia's Tresses

I totally love to watch Olivia Palermo on MTV's The City, she is a New York socialite and I believe she inspired Blair Waldorf's character on Gossip Girl, she is kind of a bitchy beauty!! What amazes me the most is her hair... it is always perfect and shiny, there is never ever a ringlet or tendril out of place and the caramel color and highlights are gorgeous... She truly is a walking hair commercial!! I will keep plugging away with my curling iron until I get her style down pat...

Simply Chic

I adore Reese Witherspoon and her everyday simple and elegant style, this outfit is a perfect example of effortless chic... Using great basics a completely cool look can be put together for a day of running errands or lunch out with the girls... Start with a great pair of jeans, your favorite boots and a neutral lightweight v-neck sweater and finish this look off by adding a pop of color with a soft scarf or pashmina and you have instant style a la Reese!!

Happy Shiny New Year

Happy New Year to my fellow fashion lovers!! I just came across this amazing collage on Fabsugar of some of my favorite celebrities at different New Year's Eve parties, I think they all look gorgeous but I am especially drawn to Nicole Ritchie's look... I love her gold sequin dress and the opaque tights and sky high heels are amazing, she is so chic and beautiful and I am still totally loving her as a brunette... All the ladies are sparkly and pretty, there is definitely a major sequin trend happening here!!
