Shades of Nude

Dilek Hanif Couture S/S 2012. 
I'm of the mindset that a shade of beige looks good on anybody. The trick, once again, is to find one that compliments your skin tone. These models above are all fairly pale with peachy pink undertones so this buttercreamy yellowy tone in perfect. The accent colors are also in gold and rust, pulling in their hair colors. For those of you who have darker skin tones, try garments with more of a pink tone and darker accent colors to pull in the shade of your darker hair and eyes. Below, Kim Kardashian is an excellent example.

But whatever you do, do not match the nude tone exactly to your skin! Otherwise you will look like this and nobody wants that:

Oscar Fashion 2012

No one does Old Hollywood glamour like these two. No one!

The fashion choices of one Ms. Meryl Streep don't generally give me pause. Ever. But I'm totally feeling this glittery gold Lanvin number. Yes, Meryl! 
(Reminds me of Kim Kardashian's 2011 Grammy's dress)

Oscar Stunners 2012

The trend for the night was definitely beaded white gowns and crimson lips:

 Giuliana Rancic in a gorgeous Tony Ward couture dress. Styled by the always awesome Monica Rose.

Milla Jovovich in Elie Saab

 Gwyneth Paltrow, topping many a best-dressed list in Tom Ford gown and cape.

I'll just say it. "Seriously?! It's like you're Photoshopped!"
George Clooney and Stacy Keibler, in Armani and Marchesa respectively.

Damn girl! If you're nominated for portraying an elderly man, it isn't a bad idea to show up looking every bit a smoking hot, poured into that dress woman. Glenn Close in Zac Posen

Red and Chocolate

Via ClassyInTheCity
Love the chocolatey brown of her top and glasses paired with the red lips. This is a great trend for the current winter into spring transition where too much color isn't quite right, but too little is just too depressing. Just right!

My Alma Mater!

Via NantucketYouth
I couldn't resist! I had to reblog this pic after unexpectedly stumbling across the chapel at my alma mater on this tumblr. Denison is a lovely, beautiful (designed by Frederick Law Olmsted of Central Park fame), very high-achieving and ultra-preppy university that you would do well to consider if you are on the hunt for a place to further your education. It also has a killer lacrosse team. Go Big Red!

Liquid Silver Leggings

Yay or nay on the silver leggings? I personally love this look but it may be better left to photo shoots and fashion magazines. Would you be caught dead?

Who needs a sparkly top when you can just glue the crystals right to your chest. Very glam. But I wouldn't want to chip them off afterword.

Muted Metals

Via ClassyInTheCity
Beautiful muted metals in the bracelet, necklace and rings pair perfectly with the well-worn, broken-in look of the muslin shirt. Eco-chic earth-child styling.

Khloe Kardashian looked stunning yesterday, making the rounds to promote season 2 of Khloe and Lamar. Dress by Alaia. But seriously, what is going on in this picture? This looks like a mob escort!

You damn well better believe that if I had a French Bulldog, he'd be wearing a beret! Chic and he knows it.

Never can one go wrong with a little champagne for breakfast. Fizzy OJ is the best. That's still a serving of fruit right?

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day my loves! Hope you are all warm and full of hope and love and appreciation. It's good to have a little heat in your heart now that we're plunged into the icy depths of winter. Be my Valentine?

Some Girls Have all the Luck

...And today, that girl is Blake Lively. As if life wasn't already splendid enough for her, she says:
My gosh, [the spring collection] was sent to my house today, and they're so beautiful. They're amazing. They are the most beautiful shoes out there. And incredibly innovative.
That's right. Christian Louboutin sent the entire spring line of shoes her way. Just cuz. Well then girl, we'll be watching your tootsies.

I am wildly in love with this skirt by ASOS. Hell, I'm also in love with ASOS. Sculpted, architectural fashion is huge this spring.
