Now that the Cannes Film Festival has ended, we can all (sort of) relax for one fashionable minute & get back to reality with stream-lined red carpet looks. For this latest Top 10 Celeb Sightings gallery, I’ve been noticing trends that don’t seem to go away, including menswear, as seen on Jennifer Lopez in a Bec & Bridge shirt with J Brand jeans & statement hot pink peep toe Christian Louboutin booties while sightseeing in London. Actress Brit Marling  downplays her natural beauty with black & white separates. Also, Diane Kruger takes a stroll in Malibu with a flirty take on the trend with a button-up mini skirt & printed top, all made feminine by a 3.1 Phillip Lim bag.

Dresses with paneling are popular too, showing off a curvy shape, or revealing some skin in an elegant way like Emmy Rossum‘s Bibhu Mohapatra dress, Rose Byrne‘s blush frock by Emilio Pucci at the premiere for The Internship, & Christina Ricci in a Thakoon LBD while showing support for the Fresh Air Fund. Lastly, my favorite looks include the ones with a pop of personality, like Kerry Washington‘s Calvin Klein Collection black shift dress with sexy leopard print pointy toe pumps at the Variety Emmy Studio, Cameron Diaz‘s all-white ensemble by Roland Mouret with ankle strap sandals at a Tag Heuer bash in Monaco, the ageless Salma Hayek-Pinault in a leather design by Bottega Veneta while dining in Venice, & finally, Olivia Palermo‘s favorite colorblocked picks from the latest collections found on Piperlime.

Which celeb has the best style? Which trend do you prefer? Menswear? Sheer panels? Or black & white looks? For more celebrity posts, check out Kerry Washington’s cover shoot for ELLE, the best of the Billboard Music Awards including Miley Cyrus & Selena Gomez, Calvin Klein’s latest fragrance ad starring Rooney Mara, a behind-the-scenes look at Kate Upton’s Vogue shoot, & Diane Kruger’s short film for Jaeger Le-Coultre!

I’ve returned home to the middle-of-nowhere suburbs on Long Island, known for its malls & neighboring university hospital, & as I’m preparing the daunting task of unpacking my overpacked bags from my eleven-day Southampton-based excursion of style & writing, I’m sitting here at my laptop, absorbed in checking on the latest & greatest from my favorite websites (In Style mainly) to see what I’ve missed.

While the Olympics are underway in London & the summer blockbusters are hitting theaters stateside, some of the best dressed celebrities are hitting the red carpet & posing at press events.  Not to mention that all of our favorite fall television shows are returning to production & the stars are plugging their shows & pilots in some serious style. From actresses to singers to royalty, this edition of Top 10 Celeb Sightings is chalk full of chic sheath dresses, lacy frocks, revealing LBDs, & ladylike elegance, sure to spark some water cooler conversation (among Style Darlings, of course).

Check out Emmy Rossum in Zuhair Murad, Jaime King colorblocking, Jessica Biel in Oscar de la Renta, Kate Middleton repeating her Roksanda Ilincic dress, Katy Perry in Dolce & Gabbana, a red-hot Kylie Minogue, Liv Tyler rocking a risky babydoll, Lucy Liu in J. Mendel, Rachel Bilson in menswear-inspired separates, & Rachel Weisz in Dior Haute Couture. Happy Styling!

Quickie Darling Deal & Steal: Spring Into Style with Dresses from Forever 21!


I can feel it… spring’s a-comin’! What better way to welcome in the season than dress hunting? I visited one of my favorites stores, Forever 21, to see what was going on in terms of spring dresses & I found these three adorable dresses.

The soft orange, neutral, and yellow hues are perfect for ushering in the season, especially with dark denim skinny jeans, white cigarette pants, & a navy mini skirt.

I love the cascading shift dress ($24.80) in yellow / grey.  It’s lovely with a cardigan & wedges. The pleated bib dress ($24.80) in tomato can be made even softer with espadrilles and multi-color beads, or toughened up with a cropped boyfriend blazer & peep toe ankle booties.  Lastly, the colorblock trim dress ($27.80) in tan / orange is work-ready if you add a patent leather belt, or just the thing for a weekend family party.

Do you like these dresses? Where do you shop when it comes to spring fashions? What colors are you looking to add to your wardrobe this coming spring season?

Also, while I have your attention, I’d like to offer up some good reads for those of you who like the Style Darling world.  Not only am I a part of the Ladies Outfitters, Movie Buzzers, & Culture Mob family, but I’d like to share with all of you some of my friend’s blogs. This includes Yoga Flow On The Go, How Do You Yoga, Delusions By Design, The Law According To Murphy, Cibo Chat, Etsy Brook, This Happy Place, & Couple of Crumbs.

Enjoy clicking around on those & I highly recommend following them! It’s hard out there for a blogger & we need all the support we can get! Happy Styling!
