It seems that demure is making a comeback on the red carpet this year. Michelle Williams (in Chanel), Scarlett Johansson (in Dolce & Gabbana), and Amy Adams (in L’Wren Scott)  all sported higher necklines and in the case of Amy and Michelle, a bit of sleeve as well.

Tonight at the Golden Globes, the movie stars and TV stars shined in sequins and trains. But the new sexy look was not boobs or legs – instead, it was all about the back. Emma Stone, Anne Hathaway and Claire Danes all showed off their wonderful backs in sexy dresses. A trend that I hope […]

Color Blocking


Rebecca Hall took a page from Julianne Moore’s style book when she showed up at The Town’s Boston premiere in a color block ensemble of red and pink from Bottega Venega’s Fall 2010 line. Julianne Moore’s Lanvin look at the Rome Film Festival was a bit more daring with her red hair as the ultimate […]

Both Tory Burch and Derek Lam went 70s with their new Spring collections. Rachel Zoe would be so proud to see the high-waisted jeans, jumpsuits, and flouncy blouses. Definitely wearable and feminine.

Last week the NYTimes published a great story about fashionistas putting themselves on a “shopping diet”. Not only are these women not buying but many of them have committed to only wearing six items of clothing through the entire month.

The key to making this work is keeping the shoe classic — no platforms or five […]

Denim & Ruffles


I love denim dresses for spring!  Ellen Pompeo recently wore a Lanvin denim dress on the red carpet and as she showed, this look can definitely be worn casual or dressy with a change of accessories. This adorable ruffled denim dress from Trina Turk is perfect for spring with a pair of metallic flip flops […]

Jessica Biel looks adorable running around town in her denim on denim. Not an easy look to pull off (Jenna Lyons does it well too) but she does it by layering different length tops under her denim jacket. Also, when attempting double-denim, make sure the different pieces are differing shades (think dark on the bottom […]
